Epidemiological study aiming to describe the carriage (nasal, throat, groin, rectal and colonic) of S. aureus in patients without chronic digestive disease who are going to have a colonoscopy for cancer screening. The carriage will be analyzed globally and the similarity of strains isolated from each site will be analyzed using molecular tools. The aim of this study is to better estimate the digestive reservoir of S. aureus to better prevent endogenous infections due to this ba...

Staphylococcus Aureus Nasal Carriage

The repeated exposition to S. aureus is considered as a determining factor of acquisition of the nasal colonization. The healthcare professionals are regularly in touch with this pathogenic bacterium. Prevalence of the nasal carriage of S. aureus in this population was the object of several studies but little took into account the respect for the rules of good hygienic practice. The results of our previous study carried out during the international congress of staphylococci (IS...

A study taking swabs from the back of the nose (nasopharynx) to look at carriage of pneumococci.

A Study to Assess the Carriage of Pneumococci in Children Aged 1-5 Years, and Their Household Contacts

Pneumococci are bacteria which can cause serious and potentially life threatening illnesses like meningitis and blood poisoning. Pneumococcal vaccines (PCV) have been given in the national immunisation schedule since 2006.Carriage studies allow assessment of how the strains in the nose change over time, in that by clearing some strains away which other strains take up those niches in their place both in children and in their close/household contacts. This helps to inform the b...

Study to Eliminate Hib Carriage in Rural Alaska Native Villages

Hib disease rates in rural Alaska before introduction of HIb conjugate vaccine were among the highest in the world. Since vaccine introduction, rates have fallen by 90% but the disease has not been eliminated. This study is designed to test one possible means of eliminating Hib carriage and thus to eliminate person to person transmission and invasive disease. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of community-wide use of Hib conjugate vaccine for...

Evaluation of an Algorithm for Identifying Persistent Nasal Staphylococcus Aureus Carriage in a Cohort of Healthy Volunteers and Patients Regularly Monitored at the CHU of Saint-Etienne

The nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus is a major risk factor of S. aureus infection, notably in hemodialysis patients (HPs). Decolonization strategies were shown able to reduce the rate of S. aureus infection in this category of patients although the risk of emergence of antimicrobial resistance persists. Approximately one quarter of the general population is colonized by S. aureus in the anterior part of the nostril (vestibulum nasi). Three main categories of nasal carri...

Carriage of Streptococcus Pneumoniae in Infants With Acute Otitis Media and in Infants Attending Day-care Centers

Rationale In Belgium, a unique situation exists for two reasons: on the one hand, the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) program, which started in 2007, has quickly reached high coverage in infants: 3-dose coverage rose from 89 % in 2008 to 96.5 % in 2012 in Flanders and from 80.7 % in 2009 to 89.2 % in 2012 in Wallonia; and on the other hand, serotype coverage has moved from PCV7 (since 2007) to PCV13 (since 2011) and very recently to PCV10 (since July 2015 in Flander...

Family Access to Care Study (FACS)

The purpose of this study is to find ways to get services to families living with HIV. New services for families living with HIV have been tried in places around the country. They seem to benefit many families. We will work with places in New York City that provide HIV services to find out more about family services. There, we will talk with people living with HIV, their family members, and their providers. Many questions need to be answered. For example: What kinds of services...

Colonization, Infection, and Molecular Typing of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) in Children.

The intent of this study is to: 1. Define the prevalence of MRSA carriage in the pediatric population in Kansas City. 2. Systematically define patient risk factors for MRSA carriage and infection. 3. Characterize the unique genetic characteristics of MRSA strains, both community acquired (CA) and healthcare associated (HCA) that are present in the different pediatric populations.

Two Approaches to Providing HIV/AIDS Services in the Community to People Living With HIV/AIDS

This study will examine the effects of having a case manager help PHAs access and use health, social services and practical resources that are helpful to their needs as compared to the usual more PHA self-managed approach of deciding and using services as they see necessary. New and existing users of HIV/AIDS services in Wellington-Dufferin, Waterloo and Grey-Bruce Regions who consent to this study will be randomized to receive their usual self-directed supportive, educational...

Long-Term Impact of Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine on Carriage

Pneumococcus is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. In 2000, a pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) was licensed for use in children and is now part of the routine childhood vaccine schedule. PCV is known to reduce invasive disease and protect against nasopharyngeal (NP) acquisition of vaccine serotype pneumococci; it also results in an increased risk of nonvaccine serotype carriage. This study proposes to assess the longterm impact of vaccine on NP carriage in a setti...

Neonatal Sepsis and GBS Carriage Study

Define the contribution of Group B streptococcus(GBS) to this problem by establishing: - The prevalence of maternal GBS carriage - The prevalence of culture positive and culture negative EO GBS sepsis - The perinatal risk factors for EO GBS cases ...

Study of Staphylococcus Aureus Colonization of the Posterior Nasal Cavity in Patients Undergoing Otorhinolaryngologic Surgery

Staphylococcus aureus nasal carriage is a major risk factor of infection with this bacterium. To our best knowledge, Staphylococcus aureus colonization of the posterior nasal cavity is still misunderstood. This study is aimed at evaluating the relationship between Staphylococcus aureus strains colonizing the vestibulum nasi, the sphenoethmoidal recess and the nasopharynx.

Real-Time PCR for the Detection of Vaginal Group B Streptococcus Carriage: a Medico-Economic Study

Group B streptococcus infections may be serious for the neonates. The infection can occur during the birth, by contact with the genital area. That is why the detection of this bacteria is systematically realised in pregnant women between 34 and 37 weeks of amenorrhea in order to give prophylactic antibiotic treatment in case or positive carriage. This strategy presents 2 disadvantages : (1) detection of the group B streptococcus at 34 and 37 weeks of amenorrhea in not predictiv...

Study of the Impact of a Targeted Decolonization of S. Aureus Persistent Carriers

S. aureus nasal carriage is a well-known risk factor for S. aureus infections in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Strains of carriage and infections are the same in >80% of cases We recently shown that persistent carriers of S. aureus, not intermittent ones are at increased risk of staphylococcal infections in HD. Thanks to a new algorithm developped based on one nasal sample the determination of carriage status (persistent, intermittent or non-carriers) among patients is easy. Mupi...

Effect of Two Versus Three Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccinations

Two( 2) or three (3) instead of four vaccinations before the age of 6 months with pneumococcal conjugate vaccine are presumed to protect children against invasive pneumococcal disease like meningitis, at least on the short term till 18-24 months of age. The current hypothesis in this study is 2 or 3 vaccinations will protect against IPD but will not alter pneumococcal nasopharyngeal carriage in infants, and consequently not change pneumococcal transmission and induce no herd-im...
