Safety Evaluation of Seraph® to Reduce Bacteremia in Patients on Hemodialysis

2016-09-26 22:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the Seraph® Microbind® Affinity Blood Filter is safe in the treatment of dialysis patients with bacteremia from Staphylococcus aureus.

Description

This trial is a prospective, non-randomized study in patients as an adjunctive treatment for blood stream infection (BSI) in patients on renal replacement therapy The heparin surface being studied is currently marketed on extracorporeal circuits. It has been shown to absorb various types of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and to reduce toxins and cytokines in in vitro studies using whole blood. For this study, patients on renal replacement therapy who develop bacteremia will have the Seraph® Microbind® Affinity Blood Filter included in the dialysis circuit for up to 4 hours, on one day, with hourly monitoring. Patients will be followed for 14 days post treatment. Patients will be monitored by vital signs and laboratory indices on the day of treatment and on post procedure day 1, 7 and 14.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The presence of viable bacteria circulating in the blood. Fever, chills, tachycardia, and tachypnea are common acute manifestations of bacteremia. The majority of cases are seen in already hospitalized patients, most of whom have underlying diseases or procedures which render their bloodstreams susceptible to invasion.

Techniques for using whole blood samples collected on filter paper for a variety of clinical laboratory tests.

Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).

Specialized phagocytic cells of the MONONUCLEAR PHAGOCYTE SYSTEM found on the luminal surface of the hepatic sinusoids. They filter bacteria and small foreign proteins out of the blood, and dispose of worn out red blood cells.

Infectious organisms in the BLOOD, of which the predominant medical interest is their contamination of blood-soiled linens, towels, gowns, BANDAGES, other items from individuals in risk categories, NEEDLES and other sharp objects, MEDICAL WASTE and DENTAL WASTE, all of which health workers are exposed to. This concept is differentiated from the clinical conditions of BACTEREMIA; VIREMIA; and FUNGEMIA where the organism is present in the blood of a patient as the result of a natural infectious process.
