Antibiotic Resistant Community-Acquired E. Coli

The purpose of this study is to review patients with E. coli infections at UPMC from January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2005 to determine if these infections have arisen in the community rather than in hospitals or nursing homes. The occurrence of such resistant isolates could be devastating if they were associated with bloodstream infection, such as sometimes accompanies urinary tract infection, since antibiotic resistant E. coli is not suspected in isolates coming from the commu...

Placebo Controlled Study of Antibiotic Treatment of Soft Tissue Infection

This study is to determine whether antibiotic therapy is needed for patients with non-life threatening soft tissue infections. Most patients with these soft tissue infections are presently treated with antibiotics. Many of these infections resolve without proper antibiotic treatment. Treatment of patients with antibiotics after surgical drainage of an abscess may not be necessary and indiscriminate use of antibiotics may lead to colonization by drug-resistant organisms. Subsequ...

Study of Accuracy of New Diagnostic Technology to Determine Guide Rapid Antibiotic Treatment for Serious Infections

Military service members and the U.S. veteran population face a growing and serious health threat: widespread antibiotic resistance resulting from resistant bacteria and a dwindling pipe-line of sufficiently potent antibiotics. Infections with antibiotic resistant bacteria are increasing significantly. They cause major complications and mortality, and drive up healthcare costs. Powerful but non-targeted antibiotics, while in widespread use, can actually pressure bacteria to d...

Building a Novel Antibiotic Stewardship Intervention for Nursing Homes

The OASIS Collaborative is an organizational intervention aimed at reducing unnecessary antibiotic use in skilled nursing facilities. The first target of intervention is the tasks carried out by nursing staff after a change in condition and after an antibiotic prescription is initiated. The second target are the management staff who provide feedback to staff. The third target are the administrators who identify and overcome organizational barriers to implementation. In t...

Effectiveness of Short-Course Versus Standard Antibiotic Therapy in ICU Patients

This study will compare two treatment strategies (standard versus short-course antibiotic therapy) for preventing resistant bacterial infection in patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). ICUs are the most frequently identified source of hospital-acquired infections. This study will examine the effectiveness of 3 days of antibiotic treatment in reducing the risk of developing antimicrobial-resistant bacteria as compared with standard antibiotic therapy of at least 8 days. It ...

Antibiotic Footprint Thailand - Pilot Questionnaire Study

Antimicrobial-resistant bacterial infection is an important cause of death in Thailand and in other countries worldwide. Increasing use of antibiotics in both animals and humans is one of the main drive that increase the incidence of antimicrobial resistant bacteria in human, animals and environment. National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic-resistant Bacteria aimed to have general population taking antibiotics less than 20% when they have common cold or diarrheal symptoms...

Predictors of Rates of Resistant Gram-Negative Bacteria

Antibiotic resistance in gram-negative bacteria continues to increase in US hospitals. This comes at a time when there are few new drugs in development that are active for these resistant organisms. The implication is that we must learn to use the drugs that we have more wisely and develop new strategies that will preserve existing agents. Antimicrobial "stewardship" programs are one strategy that many hospitals are adopting to improve the quality of antimicrobial use. The goa...

The Effect of Supraglottic and Oropharyngeal Decontamination on the Incidence of Ventilator-associated Pneumonia

Oropharynx is the main source of pathogen microorganisms for the ventilator - associated pneumoniae. As known bacteriophages can eliminate different pathogen microorganisms or reduce a degree of a pathogen's colonization. The research team is considering that oropharyngeal decontamination with bacteriophages can prevent the developing of the ventilator - associated pneumoniae. There will be three groups in this investigation: placebo, antiseptic drug (Octenisept) and bacterioph...

PCR to Guide Antibiotic Therapy for Pneumonia

The purpose of this study is to conduct a randomized clinical trial to compare an antibiotic strategy based on a novel diagnostic test, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to usual care, in critically ill adults with pneumonia suspected to be caused by methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The investigators hypothesize that when automated PCR is used to guide antibiotic therapy, antibiotic exposure will be reduced in critically ill subjects with pneumonia.

Better Antibiotic Prescribing Through Action Research

This PAR (participatory action research) study to improve antibiotic prescribing quality in a GPC (general practitioner cooperative) during OOH-care (out-of-hours-care) uses a mixed methods approach using qualitative as well as quantitative techniques. In a first exploratory phase we will work on partnership development and mapping the existing issues. In a second phase the focus will be on facilitating change and implementing interventions through PDSA (plan do study act) cycl...

Effects of MAC Preventive Therapy on Disease-Causing Bacteria in HIV-Infected Patients: A Substudy of CPCRA 048

Some people who have taken azithromycin to prevent MAC (Mycobacterium avium Complex, a bacterial infection common in HIV-infected persons) have been found to carry antibiotic-resistant bacteria (germs that grow despite the presence of drugs used to kill them). The purpose of this study is to see if people who take azithromycin carry more antibiotic-resistant bacteria than people who have chosen to delay MAC preventive therapy. When bacteria like Streptococcus (a type of bacte...

Antibiotic Therapy After Incision and Drainage for Abscess

Background: Skin abscesses are a growing problem in the general pediatric population around the world. While the standard treatment for an abscess/boil is incision and drainage, many physicians also prescribe antibiotics, despite the lack of evidence that antibiotics are necessary to help the wound heal. The purpose of this research study is to determine whether antibiotics are necessary after incision and drainage of a skin abscess in children. This is an important question be...
