Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia – common, deadly, and misunderstood; addressing the evidence gaps in its management.”

Abstract: Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (SAB) occurs in every large hospital in Australia every week, and leads to death in approximately 20% of those affected. Despite this, a total of less than 2,500 people have ever been randomised into clinical trials to assess optimal treatment strategies. I will describe the results of a series of planned and ongoing randomised controlled trials being led out of Menzies which compare various antibiotic regimens for SAB, as well as a world-first adaptive platform trial which aims to enrol 6,000 patients with SAB and to answer the key management questions.

Biography: Josh is a clinician researcher, and divides his time between clinical work as an Infectious Diseases physician in Newcastle, and research work as a principal research fellow based at Menzies. Read more on our website.
