State University of New York - Upstate Medical University
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01229553
First received: October 26, 2010
Last updated: June 10, 2015
Last verified: May 2015
  Purpose
The primary objective of this study is to measure efficacy of our new protocol by monitoring the results of our routine respiratory cultures at the end of the new standard treatment, and during routine visits for 1 year from initiation of therapy for Staphylococcus aureus. The secondary objective will include determining the clinical course (pulmonary exacerbations, antibiotic use, hospitalizations, pulmonary function tests) of patients who underwent the protocol.

Condition Intervention
Cystic Fibrosis Drug: decolonization

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To measure the efficacy of a decolonization regimen to eliminate SA from nares, oropharynx and sputum of pediatric CF patients (2-23 months of age). [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To measure adverse effects of the decolonization regimen (e.g. local irritation, skin dryness, rashes, vomiting, diarrhea) and its impact on carriage with other organisms (e.g., Pseudomonas). [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • To evaluate the effect of decolonization regimen on lung changes and/or frequency of pulmonary exacerbations. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • To evaluate adherence to the decolonization regimen [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Decolonization group
The decolonization protocol for the patients will consist of two-week course of cephalexin (100 mg/kg/day divided TID) or oral T/S (20 mg/kg/day divided BID), HBW every other day for 2 weeks, and mupirocin ointment into both nares BID for 2 weeks.
Drug: decolonization
The decolonization protocol for the patients will consist of two-week course of cephalexin (100 mg/kg/day divided TID) or oral T/S (20 mg/kg/day divided BID), HBW every other day for 2 weeks, and mupirocin ointment into both nares BID for 2 weeks.
