A Multi-Center Protocol for Obtaining and Storing Human Samples for Immediate or Future Microbial, Immune, or Host Microbe Scientific Study

2014-07-23 21:20:07 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The intent of this protocol is to salvage human-related material that is normally destined for destruction, so it can be used in infection-related scientific studies.

Description

This clinical material can be studied in order to better understand the molecular, cellular, or ecological components of the infected or potentially infected tissue or device. These studies may be able to provide important insights into the keys of chronic infections, complex infections, medical biofilms, pathogen ecology, and healing.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Infection by a variety of fungi, usually through four possible mechanisms: superficial infection producing conjunctivitis, keratitis, or lacrimal obstruction; extension of infection from neighboring structures - skin, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx; direct introduction during surgery or accidental penetrating trauma; or via the blood or lymphatic routes in patients with underlying mycoses.

A nontuberculous infection when occurring in humans. It is characterized by pulmonary disease, lymphadenitis in children, and systemic disease in AIDS patients. Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection of birds and swine results in tuberculosis.

Infection involving the tissues or organs in the PELVIS.

Infection in humans and animals caused by fungi in the class Zygomycetes. It includes MUCORMYCOSIS and entomophthoramycosis. The latter is a tropical infection of subcutaneous tissue or paranasal sinuses caused by fungi in the order Entomophthorales. Phycomycosis, closely related to zygomycosis, describes infection with members of Phycomycetes, an obsolete classification.

An infection at a specific location that may spread to another region of the body.
