Correlational study including several comparisons such as patients and their doctors.
Recent advances in molecular diagnostics of tuberculosis, especially the GeneXpert Mycobacterium tuberculosis/Rifampicin test have reduced the time to diagnose Rifampicin Resistant Tuberculosis (RR-TB) but only rifampicin resistance is diagnosed, leading to presumptive diagnosis of resistance to isoniazid and maybe other drugs. Thus in low and middle income countries, most drug sensitivity testing relies on phenotypic drug resistance testing, which takes up to 4 months. In addi...
We aim to evaluate the effect of an extension of conventional urine diagnostics with mass spectrometry in patients with a suspected UTI. Mass spectrometry is done directly from the urine sample (without an intermediate bacterial culture).The primary outcome is the time from the entry of a urine sample in the microbiological laboratory to the adequate/optimal/definitive treatment. Secondary outcomes are the time to diagnosis of a therapy relevant UTI, the quantity of antibiotics...
This is a proof of concept study that will evaluate the feasibility of a vapor nanobubble technology (MalariSense) for malaria diagnostics. The MalariSense technology will use a highly innovative approach based on the transdermal non-invasive detection of vapor nanobubbles produced by the excitation of malaria-specific hemozoin by safe, low-energy laser pulse. The objectives of this study will be to determine the sensitivity and specificity of MalariSense in diagnosing malaria ...
The purpose of this study is to conduct formative research to inform the design and implementation of combination prevention interventions, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for female sex workers (FSW), as well as to inform recruitment and retention strategies for female sex workers and their male clients in Kenya.
Invasive fungal infections (IFI) in immunocompromised patients pose a major challenge for diagnostics designed to permit timely onset of appropriate treatment. The aim of the current clinical-diagnostic studies, one in in pediatric and one in adult patients at high risk of IFI, is to test newly developed diagnostic approaches to invasive fungal infections in relation to established procedures. The studies will be performed in a prospective, blinded fashion, and represent a wor...
