Incidence of Antibiotic Resistant E.Coli in Patients Undergoing Repeat Prostate Biopsy

2014-08-27 03:21:39 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to discover how often certain bacteria are found in the rectum at the time of a prostate needle biopsy to diagnose prostate cancer. Certain bacteria are of importance because they can cause serious infection. Antibiotics that urologists commonly use to prevent these bacteria from causing infection are no longer effective. Many physicians around the world are noting increased infections with antibiotic resistant bacteria. Therefore; despite treating patients who are to undergo prostate biopsy with antibiotics, certain patients are being readmitted to the hospital with a serious infection. In order to study the incidence of these particular bacteria, the best method is to culture the bacteria at the time of the biopsy. This involves one rectal culture swab just prior to needle biopsy of the prostate. Once the incidence of these bacteria is known we may take steps to prevent the serious infections that occur as a result of prostate biopsy.

Exposure to NSAIDs (Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) and Severity of Community-acquired Bacterial Infections

- NSAIDs are widely consumed, and some are currently available for self-medication with indications 'Pain and Fever' (Cavalié, National Agency for Drug Safety (ANSM), 2014) - Th...

The Value of the Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio in the Diagnosis of Bacterial Infections

The "gold standard" for diagnosing a bacterial infection is isolation of the pathogenic germ, which is not easy in routine clinical practice. Conventional markers do not have sufficient d...

Interest of Eosinopia in the Diagnosis of Infection in the Emergency Department

Several studies have described the interest of eosinopenia as a marker of infection in internal medicine or in intensive care units. Eosinopenia is an inexpensive and easily accessible bio...

Community-acquired bacterial co-infection predicts severity and mortality in influenza-associated pneumonia admitted patients.

Influenza is frequently complicated by bacterial co-infection, causing additional hospitalization and mortality. We determined the incidence, risk factors and outcomes of patients with influenza-assoc...

Utility of neutrophil CD64 and serum TREM-1 in distinguishing bacterial infection from disease flare in SLE and ANCA-associated vasculitis.

Bacterial and opportunistic infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vascul...

Update on association between Kawasaki disease and infection.

The relationship between infection and Kawasaki disease (KD) remains unclear. Infection has long been considered a key predisposing factor for KD. Bacterial and viral agents may be related to the onse...

Next-generation sequencing analysis reveals high bacterial diversity in wild venomous and non-venomous snakes from India.

The oral cavities of snakes are replete with various types of bacterial flora. Culture-dependent studies suggest that some of the bacterial species are responsible for secondary bacterial infection as...

Gold Nanoparticles Cure Bacterial Infection with Benefit to Intestinal Microflora.

Antibiotics which are most used to cure bacterial infections in the clinic would result in the imbalance of intestinal microflora, destroy the intestinal barrier, and induce bacterial resistance. Ther...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Death of pulp tissue with or without bacterial invasion. When the necrosis is due to ischemia with superimposed bacterial infection, it is referred to as pulp gangrene. When the necrosis is non-bacterial in origin, it is called pulp mummification.

Intraocular infection caused mainly by pus-producing bacteria and rarely by fungi. The infection may be caused by an injury or surgical wound (exogenous) or by endogenous septic emboli in such diseases as bacterial endocarditis or meningococcemia.

ENDOCARDIUM infection that is usually caused by STREPTOCOCCUS. Subacute infective endocarditis evolves over weeks and months with modest toxicity and rare metastatic infection.

Inflammation of the DENTAL PULP, usually due to bacterial infection in dental caries, tooth fracture, or other conditions causing exposure of the pulp to bacterial invasion. Chemical irritants, thermal factors, hyperemic changes, and other factors may also cause pulpitis.

A chronic bacterial infection of major folds of the skin, caused by Corynebacterium minutissimum.
