Brief Summary:
All patients undergoing autologous or allogeneic stem cell transplant (SCT) for any underlying disease will be monitored for severe infections by gram negative bacteria (SIGNB) during the engraftment period. The follow up will be stopped at 4 months from the day of transplant. About 50 transplant centers will be involved in the study.

stem cell tranplant
All patients undergoing autologous or allogeneic stem cell tranplant for any underlying disease



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. incidence of each type of Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria [ Time Frame: 4 months by stem cell transplant ]
    To estimate the incidence of each type of Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria , in particular by antibiotic resistant isolates, documented during the engraftment period in patients submitted to autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplant.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. incidence particularly of Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria [ Time Frame: 4 months by stem cell transplant ]
    To assess the incidence of Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria particularly those caused by antibiotic resistant enterobacteria in subgroups of patients undergoing autologous or allogeneic stem cell transplant.

  2. risk factors [ Time Frame: 4 month by stem cell transplant ]
    To assess the risk factors of Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria particularly those caused by antibiotic resistant enterobacteria in autologous and allogeneic Stem cell CT transplant

  3. prognostic factors [ Time Frame: 4 month by stem cell transplant ]
    To assess the prognostic factors of Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria particularly those caused by antibiotic resistant enterobacteria in autologous and allogeneic Stem cell CT transplant

  4. overall mortality for SIGNB [ Time Frame: 3 months from the Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria ]
    To assess the overall Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria and attributable mortality at 3 months from the SIGNB

  5. overall survival for SIGNB from transplant [ Time Frame: 4 months from transplant ]
    To assess the impact of SIGNB on the overall survival at 4 months from transplant in autologous and allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation

  6. susceptibility pattern to antimicrobials of microorganisms [ Time Frame: 4 month by stem cell transplant ]
    To evaluate the susceptibility pattern to antimicrobials of microorganisms causing Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria with particular attention to enterobacteria with particular attention to the resistance phenotypes

  7. antibacterial strategies [ Time Frame: 4 month by stem cell transplant ]
    To describe the antibacterial strategies (in prophylaxis and therapy) employed in the various centers and in the various categories of patients particularly for the management of antibiotic resistant enterobacteria

  8. local strategy [ Time Frame: 4 month by stem cell transplant ]
    To evaluate the impact of a local strategy in the use of antibiotics on the epidemiology of Severe Infections by Gram Negative Bacteria
