Antibiotic resistance is a bacterial defense mechanism against antibiotics. It can rapidly spread from one bacterium to another. This makes antibiotics increasingly ineffective.
The level of resistances against antibiotics is rising. This is a great challenge for physicians and scientists. Scientists within the DZIF research field “Healthcare-associated and Antibiotic-resistant bacterial Infections” aim to develop new strategies against the development and spread of resistance.
Bloodstream infections (BSI) are associated with high morbidity and mortality worldwide and are still considered as one of the most severe bacterial infections. The BLOOMY-PREDICT project is an observational study, which runs at five German university hospitals. Within the scope of the project ...
