The aim of this study is to identify in hospitalized patients, the risk factors associated with the digestive colonisation by emergent extensively drug-resistant bacteria (eXDR), to optimize their detection and the medical care for carriers these patients
CODBAHRE is a french, regional study, involving 9 centers. Recruitment will take place in all the departments of the centers involved under the supervision of the Infection Control Team.
All patients hospitalized more than 24 hours, on a given day are eligible for the protocol, except the patients unable to answer the questionnaire.
After collecting the non-opposition of the patient, patients will be screened by rectal swab and a questionnaire will be completed.
Each sample will be analyzed to detect eXDR carrying patients.
The carrying patients will be followed during 6 months to estimate the proportion of the population which developped a bacterial infection. This information will be collected by a retrospective telephone survey of carrying patients.

Two studies (Gerlach et al. 2000; Gerlach et al. 2002) described the impact of factor XIII on the risk of prospective hemorrhage for patients undergoing craniotomy. Since then, factor XIII...
With recent changes in UK clinical practice for diabetes care, contemporary estimates of sex disparities in cardiovascular risk and risk factor management are needed.
Type 2 diabetes is a risk factor for development of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. However, risk factor that identify persons with the highest risk for these outcomes are missing from unselec...
The identification of new causal risk factors has the potential to improve cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk prediction and the development of new treatments to reduce CVD deaths. In the general popul...
Genomic regions of homozygosity (ROH), detectable in outbred populations, have been implicated as determinants of inherited risk. To examine whether ROH is associated with risk of multiple myeloma (MM...
The fact that more and more people suffer from dementia makes it very important to know the different risk factors to prevent their appearance. The objective of this article is to study personality di...
Telephone surveys are conducted to monitor prevalence of the major behavioral risks among adults associated with premature MORBIDITY and MORTALITY. The data collected is in regard to actual behaviors, rather than on attitudes or knowledge. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1984.
Statistical models which describe the relationship between a qualitative dependent variable (that is, one which can take only certain discrete values, such as the presence or absence of a disease) and an independent variable. A common application is in epidemiology for estimating an individual's risk (probability of a disease) as a function of a given risk factor.
Reduction of high-risk choices and adoption of low-risk quantity and frequency alternatives.
Activated form of factor VIII. The B-domain of factor VIII is proteolytically cleaved by thrombin to form factor VIIIa. Factor VIIIa exists as a non-covalent dimer in a metal-linked (probably calcium) complex and functions as a cofactor in the enzymatic activation of factor X by factor IXa. Factor VIIIa is similar in structure and generation to factor Va.
Activated form of factor XI. In the intrinsic pathway, Factor XI is activated to XIa by factor XIIa in the presence of cofactor HMWK; (HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT KININOGEN). Factor XIa then activates factor IX to factor IXa in the presence of calcium.
