Pneumonia in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Setting

The purpose of this observational study is to collect prospective data on the occurrence of bacterial and viral pneumonia in the ICU setting. Current classification systems for pneumonia p...

Use of TREM-1 Protein to Differentiate Viral and Bacterial Pneumonias in Intubated Children

The purpose of this study is to determine whether a protein called TREM-1 can be used to differentiate viral and bacterial pneumonias in children who are on ventilator support. We propose ...

A Study of Meropenem-Vaborbactam Versus Piperacillin/Tazobactam in Participants With Hospital-Acquired and Ventilator-Associated Bacterial Pneumonia

The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of meropenem-vaborbactam compared to piperacillin/tazobactam for 7 to 14 days in the...

Bacterial Pneumonia Score (BPS) Guided Antibiotic Use in Children With Community Acquired Pneumonia

The aim of this study is to test if BPS (Bacterial Pneumonia Score) guided antibiotic use in children with non severe community acquired pneumonia (CAP) will reduce antibiotic use as compa...

Antibiotic Therapy in Comatose Mechanically Ventilated Patients Following Aspiration: Differentiating Pneumonia From Pneumonitis.

To determine the proportion of patients with documented bacterial aspiration pneumonia among comatose ICU patients with symptoms suggesting either bacterial aspiration pneumonia or non-bacterial aspir...

Cost Drivers of a Hospital Acquired Bacterial Pneumonia and Ventilator Associated Bacterial Pneumonia (HABP/VABP) Phase Three Clinical Trial.

Studies indicate that the prevalence of multi-drug resistant infections, including hospital acquired and ventilator associated bacterial pneumonia (HABP/VABP), has been rising. There are many challeng...

Pneumonia with bacterial and viral coinfection.

We aim to review the epidemiology of pneumonia with bacterial and viral coinfection, the pathogenesis and clinical impact of coinfection along with the current state of treatment and outcomes.

Hospitalization costs of severe bacterial pneumonia in children: comparative analysis considering different costing methods.

To determine and compare hospitalization costs of bacterial community-acquired pneumonia cases via different costing methods under the Brazilian Public Unified Health System perspective.

Mechanical ventilation induces IL-4 secretion in lungs and reduces the phagocytic capacity of lung macrophages.

Patients receiving mechanical ventilation are at risk of developing ventilator-associated pneumonia. Here, we show that clinically utilized ventilation protocols in rat with 5 or 8 mL/kg tidal volumes...
