Advanced understanding of StaPhylococcus aureus Infections in EuRopE - Surgical Site Infections (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.
