Observational: studies in human beings in which biomedical and/or health outcomes are assessed in pre-defined groups of individuals. Subjects in the study may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other interventions, but the investigator does not assign specific interventions to the subjects of the study.


Study Phase Definition: Phase of investigation, as defined by the US FDA for trials involving investigational new drugs. Select only one.

N/A: for trials without phases Observational Study Design Case-control: group of individuals with specific characteristics (e.g., conditions or exposures) compared to group(s) with different Time Perspective Cross-sectional: observations or measurements made at a single point in time, usually at subject enrollment Biospecimen Retention - select one Samples Without DNA - samples retained, with no potential for DNA extraction from any retained samples (e.g., fixed tissue, plasma) Biospecimen Description

Sputum, whole blood, urine, tissue Enrollment

Single group study Number of Groups/Cohorts Definition: Number of study groups/cohorts. Enter 1 for a single-group study. Many observational studies have one group/cohort; case control studies typically have two.

In this study we retrospectively reviewed A. baumannii meningitis cases treated with tigecycline including regimens and evaluated the efficacy of tigecycline in the therapy.

Update on prevalence and mechanisms of resistance to linezolid, tigecycline and daptomycin in enterococci in Europe: Towards a common nomenclature.

Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) are important nosocomial pathogens. Invasive VRE infections are difficult to treat since common therapeutic options including ampicillin and glycopeptides often ...

Multidrug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii ventriculostomy-related infection, treated by a Colistin, Tigecycline and intraventricular fibrinolysis.

Acinetobacter baumannii meningitis and ventriculitis are difficult issues, due to the low diffusion of antibiotics in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and bacterial multidrug resistance. The presence of ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A fluorescent probe with low toxicity which is a potent substrate for P-glycoprotein and the bacterial multidrug efflux transporter. It is used to assess mitochondrial bioenergetics in living cells and to measure the efflux activity of P-glycoprotein in both normal and malignant cells. (Leukemia 1997;11(7):1124-30)

A pattern recognition receptor that binds unmethylated CPG CLUSTERS. It mediates cellular responses to bacterial pathogens by distinguishing between self and bacterial DNA.

The concentration of a compound needed to reduce population growth of organisms, including eukaryotic cells, by 50% in vitro. Though often expressed to denote in vitro antibacterial activity, it is also used as a benchmark for cytotoxicity to eukaryotic cells in culture.

A fungal metabolite which is a macrocyclic lactone exhibiting a wide range of antibiotic activity.

The techniques used to produce molecules exhibiting properties that conform to the demands of the experimenter. These techniques combine methods of generating structural changes with methods of selection. They are also used to examine proposed mechanisms of evolution under in vitro selection conditions.
