B3451002 - A Phase 2b, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate The Safety and Efficacy of Staphylococcus Aureus 4-Antigen Vaccine (SA4Ag) in Adults Undergoing Elective Posterior Instrumented Lumbar Spinal Fusion Procedures.
A Study to evaluate a Staphylococcus aureus vaccine in patients undergoing elective posterior instrumented lumbar spinal fusion procedures.
Background: Reports of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) infections in the United States (U.S.) have become commonplace and are well-known to patients, providers, and healthcare administrators. Many researchers have described this major health problem as one of epidemic proportion because of the scope and magnitude of these infections in the U.S. The incidence of MRSA and S. aureus infections has been a burden on the United States’ healthcare system. Although recent MRSA infection rates have seen a slight decline, S. aureus rates have been stable. Prior to the recent slight MRSA decline, hospitalizations for MRSA infections increased 119% from 1999 to 2005. An astounding 16% of all infections in the US are from S. aureus, and roughly 18% are related to surgical site infections. Despite the best known infection control mechanisms, MRSA and S. aureus will continue to be a high focal point for the healthcare community.
The evolution of vaccinations has proven to be an essential part of population health that positively impacts health outcomes and reduces healthcare related expenses. CARE-ID is one of 55 centers in the world evaluating a S. aureus vaccine in individuals undergoing elective posterior instrumented lumbar spinal fusion procedures. The potential use of a preventative S. aureus vaccine in patients undergoing elective surgery would be a major accomplishment in medicine.
