Advanced understanding of StaPhylococcus aureus Infections in EuRopESurgical SiteInfections

ASPIRE-SSI is a prospective, observational, multicenter cohort study performed with adult surgical patients as subjects. The study aims to engender advanced understanding of Staphylococcus aureus infections in Europe (ASPIRE) incurred in surgical site infections (SSIs).

Predicting risk of infection during surgery

The primary objective of ASPIRE-SSI is to determine the incidence of S. aureus SSIs in various adult surgical patient populations. Another aim is to identify the patient-related, pathogen-related, and contextual risk factors. Immunologic features protective against S. aureus SSI will also be assessed.

The knowledge obtained from this study will enable identification of the patients most at risk of developing S. aureus SSI. It should also indicate who would probably benefit the most from new prophylactic interventions.

Study information

ASPIRE-SSI is a prospective, observational, multicenter cohort study that will be conducted at 35 sites in 10 countries across Europe. In total, approximately 15000 patients will be consented, and about 1/3 will be enrolled in the study cohort. They will provide demographic and clinical data, as well as serological and microbiological specimens for testing. Eligible for enrolment in the study are adult surgical patients who will be undergoing planned or unplanned surgery from a preselected set of surgical procedures, and who are preoperatively screened for S. aureus colonization.
