A Complicated Skin and Soft-tissue Infection Patient Registry
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this registry is to better understand (1) complicated skin and soft-tissue infections requiring hospitalization, and (2) clinical and economic outcomes in hospitalized patients receiving intravenous antibiotic therapy.
A prospective, multi-center, observational study involving 1200 patients hospitalized for the treatment of cSSTIs. The study will be conducted at approximately 50 hospitals in the US. Patients who consent to participate in the registry will be enrolled in the registry within 24 hours of initial IV antibiotic therapy for treatment of one or more cSSTI types. Sites will treat patients according to their usual clinical practice. The objective of this registry is to characterize cSSTIs with respect to patient characteristics and describe patient outcomes.
