Grinding Versus Standard Methods for the Treatment of Per-operative Bacteriological Samples Associated With Osteo-articular Sepsis

2015-11-05 17:53:22 | BioPortfolio


The main objective of this study was to compare the diagnostic capability (sensitivity and specificity) of standard bacteriological analysis made from one or other of the two sampling processing techniques and perioperative management of samples : the Ultra Turrax method that uses grinding versus the standard method.


The secondary objectives of this study are to:

A. Compare the two techniques in terms of bacterial species identified.

B. Compare the diagnostic capabilities (sensitivity and specificity) of the two sample processing techniques depending on the type of analyzed samples (soft tissue, bone tissue) (subgroup analysis).

C. Compare the diagnostic capabilities (sensitivity and specificity) of the two sample processing techniques depending on the type of joint (subgroup analysis).

D. Compare the diagnostic capabilities (sensitivity and specificity) of the two sample processing techniques depending on the type of implanted materials (prosthesis versus other equipment) (subgroup analysis).

E. Develop a culture collection of bacteria isolated from infection osteo-articular protheses.

A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.

Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.

A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.

Biological systems as affected by time. Aging, biological rhythms, and cyclic phenomena are included. Statistical, computer-aided mathematical procedures are used to describe, in mathematical terminology, various biological functions over time.

Complex pharmaceutical substances, preparations, or agents of organic origin, usually obtained by biological methods or assay. They are used especially in diagnosis and treatment of disease (as vaccines or pollen extracts). Biological products are differentiated from BIOLOGICAL FACTORS in that the latter are compounds with biological or physiological activity made by living organisms. (From Webster's 3d ed)
