OBTAINING AND STORING HUMAN BLOOD, URINE, AND FECAL SAMPLES FOR SPIROCHETE-RELATED EPIDEMIOLOGICAL RESEARCH

2014-08-27 03:15:09 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Current spirochaete infection identification and diagnostic strategies have important limitations. Recent development may allow for an improvement in diagnostic, screening and survey capabilities. The goal of this study is to evaluate blood, urine and fecal samples from a variety of sources and generate information on the occurrence and epidemiology of spirochetes in the general and at risk populations.

Description

The intent of this protocol is to obtain blood, feces and urine samples from subjects with or without a suspected spirochaete infection, so these samples can be used in spirochaete-related scientific studies.

Study Design

Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective

Conditions

The Samples Will be Studied in Order to Attempt to Better Understand the Occurrence of Blood, Feces and Urine Borne Spirochaetes

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Studies in which subsets of a defined population are identified. These groups may or may not be exposed to factors hypothesized to influence the probability of the occurrence of a particular disease or other outcome. Cohorts are defined populations which, as a whole, are followed in an attempt to determine distinguishing subgroup characteristics.

The proportion of survivors in a group, e.g., of patients, studied and followed over a period, or the proportion of persons in a specified group alive at the beginning of a time interval who survive to the end of the interval. It is often studied using life table methods.

Testing erythrocytes to determine presence or absence of blood-group antigens, testing of serum to determine the presence or absence of antibodies to these antigens, and selecting biocompatible blood by crossmatching samples from the donor against samples from the recipient. Crossmatching is performed prior to transfusion.
