|Official Title:||Prospective Study on the Incidence, Predictors, and Characteristics of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Infections and a Randomized, Double-Blind Study on Decolonization Procedures for Prevention of MRSA Infections Among HIV-Infected Persons|
|Study Start Date :||May 2007|

|Estimated Study Completion Date :||August 2017|
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 hexachlorophene (pHisoHex) body washes for seven days.
|Placebo Comparator: 2||
Some randomized patients will receive a placebo nasal ointment (white petroleum) and a placebo body soap with no antimicrobial activity for seven days.
- 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 ]
- 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 ]
- 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 ]
- To characterize the molecular characteristics and the antimicrobial sensitivities of MRSA isolates in this population. [ Time Frame: at time of positive MRSA results ]
