Dr. Nancy Crum-Cianflone, Naval Health Research Center
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00631566
First received: February 27, 2008
Last updated: July 17, 2013
Last verified: July 2013
  Purpose

This study will prospectively evaluate the prevalence and incidence (over a two year period) of MRSA colonization and infection among HIV-infected military beneficiaries to determine predictors for the development of MRSA colonization and infection. This study will also investigate the utility of decolonization procedures for clearance of MRSA carriage and prevention of MRSA infections. Finally, the molecular characteristics and the antimicrobial sensitivities of isolates in this population will be determined.

Further study details as provided by Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The presence of MRSA on repeated swabs to assess the efficacy of these medications on clearing MRSA colonization [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks for 5 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the prevalence and incidence of MRSA colonization of the nares, throat, perirectal, axilla, and groin areas among HIV infected patients and to study changes in the colonization rates over time. [ Time Frame: Every 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate the change in CD4 counts and HIV viral loads during the time of a MRSA or soft tissue infection. [ Time Frame: At time of infection ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To characterize the molecular characteristics and the antimicrobial sensitivities of MRSA isolates in this population. [ Time Frame: at time of positive MRSA results ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 550
Study Start Date: May 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Drug: Mupirocin (Bactroban) 2%; hexachlorophene (pHisoHex) 3%

BACTROBAN NASAL is a white to off-white ointment that contains 2.15% w/w mupirocin calcium (equivalent to 2.0% pure mupirocin free acid) in a soft white ointment base. The inactive ingredients are paraffin and a mixture of glycerin esters (SOFTISAN 649).

pHisoHex, brand of hexachlorophene detergent cleanser, is an antibacterial sudsing emulsion for topical administration.

Some randomized patients will receive mupirocin (Bactroban) nasal ointment plus hexachorophene (pHisoHex) body washes for seven days.

Placebo Comparator: 2 Drug: Placebo
Some randomized patients will receive a placebo nasal ointment (white petroleum) and a placebo body soap with no antimicrobial activity for seven days.
