Protocolized Care for Early Septic Shock (ProCESS) statistical analysis plan. (4/5)

BACKGROUND: The Protocolized Care for Early Septic Shock study is a randomised, multicentre, prospective, three-arm, parallel-group trial of alternative resuscitation strategies for early septic shock. OBJECTIVE: To state our analysis plan for trial data. METHODS: Our plan is to guide data collection and analysis using pre-existing definitions and testing, with local consensus-based efforts where needed. We examine protocolised care (two experimental approaches) and compare this to usual "wild type" care. RESULTS: Our plan is to address three aims (clinical efficacy, biology of illness and recovery, and costs and cost-effectiveness) and four hypotheses, and we specify rules for handling data and determining outcomes. CONCLUSION: By using measures to maintain study conduct and analysis rigour, we hope to improve understanding of early septic shock resuscitation and care of patients.  (+info)

The primary hypotheses to be tested sequentially are that: protocolized resuscitation (EGDT and PSC) results in lower hospital mortality than usual care and Early Goal Directed Therapy results in lower hospital mortality than Protocolized Standard Care. These hypotheses will be tested on all enrolled subjects.. The study is powered to find an absolute mortality reduction (ARR) of ~6-7%. Based on the control arm mortality rate, we originally estimated a sample size of 1950. During the trial, the ProCESS Coordinating Center monitored the overall mortality rate, and appreciated that it was markedly lower than originally projected. Therefore, following a series of new calculations, in February 2013, the trial was re-sized to 1350 patients (450 patients per arm). The new size preserves the same power to find the same ARR. The resizing was fully blinded and approved by the NIH. ...

The potential use of financial compensation to increase living kidney donation rates remains controversial in potentially introducing undue inducement of vulnerable populations to donate. This cross-sectional study assessed amounts of financial compensation that would generate motivation and an undue inducement to donate to family/friends or strangers. Individuals leaving six Departments of Motor Vehicles were surveyed. Of the 210 participants who provided verbal consent (94% participation rate), respondents willingness to donate would not change (70%), or would increase (29%) with compensation. Median lowest amounts of financial compensation for which participants would begin to consider donating a kidney were $5000 for family/friends, and $10 000 for strangers; respondents reporting $0 for family/friends (52%) or strangers (26%) were excluded from analysis. Median lowest amounts of financial compensation for which participants could no longer decline (perceive an undue inducement) were $50 ...

The literature surrounding the used of ECMO for drowning patients has not shown much benefit. This is likely due to the severe level of anoxic injury sustained by the study groups, since most of these patients are either PEA or aystole on arrival. Case reports like these do show some promise, but they are few and far between, and often exclusive to the pediatric population. What is does lend evidence to is the utility of a protocolized system of ECMO-based care in areas with a high potential for falls into icy water. Outcomes like this are only possible if every piece of the operational puzzle is planned ahead of time with buy in from multiple pre-hospital agencies and hospital departments ...

Twenty-five patients (median age 66 years, median APACHE II score 26) received albumin (median amount 3 l) and 21 (median age 62 years, median APACHE II score 22) received normal saline (median amount 3.5 l) as study fluid over 7 days. PCA revealed that 60% of the variance in the chemokines was accounted for with the first two components. Analyzing the first component using a threshold of greater than 0.5 or -0.5 we saw a clustering of IL-17, IL-12p70, IL-9 and IL-5. Heat map analysis suggests that by 72 hours albumin-resuscitated patients are distinguished by the cluster of IL-17, IL-9 and Il-12p70 and VEGF when compared to saline. Hierarchal clustering also separates IL-17, IL-19, IL-12p70 and IL-2 in the albumin-treated patients but not the saline-treated patients at 72 hours. At enrolment, mean urine NGAL levels were greater than 1,000 ng/ml (albumin 1,121 ± 2,172 (n = 21), saline 1,375 ± 3,197 (n = 17)). Over the next 24 hours there was a marked increase in urine NGAL in the ...
If youve had a heart attack or stroke, paramedics, doctors, and nurses follow standardized protocols for what to do right away, and their efforts improve your odds for a full recovery. Thats not the case if you have a body-wide infection known as sepsis, which can be fatal within a few hours and is often not diagnosed until it is too late. Now, a new, multicenter research consortium, called Protocolized Care for Early Septic Shock (ProCESS), is beginning a large-scale study to determine whether specific interventions can halt the progression to severe sepsis and septic shock. Key to the project is determining whether there are "golden hours" during which prompt, rigorous, standardized care can save patients lives. The project may establish the first set of standard procedures to diagnose and treat sepsis in emergency departments. The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), part of the National Institutes of Health, launched the project this month with a grant totaling more ...

U.S., March 3 -- ClinicalTrials.gov registry received information related to the study (NCT03065751) titled Plasmaexchange in Early Septic Shock on Feb. 23. Brief Summary: Sepsis is defined by the occurrence of a systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) in the context of infection. Unfortunately, its incidence appears to be rising, and the mortality of septic shock remains extraordinary high (, 60%). Death in sepsis arises from shock and multi organ dysfunction that are - at least in part - triggered by an inadequate response of the hosts immune system to the infection. Given the injurious role of 1) this overwhelming immune response and 2) the consumption of protective plasmatic factors (e.g. vWF cleaving proteases, hemostatic factors etc.) while the disease is progressing we hypothesize that early therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) in the most severely ill individuals might improve hemodynamics, oxygenation and ultimately survival. This therapeutic strategy combines 2 major aspects in ...
Several retrospective studies have demonstrated improved survival when antibiotics are administered early in septic shock and severe sepsis. However, the results of the recent Protocolized Care for Early Septic Shock (ProCESS) trial have prompted intense debate in the critical care community regarding which elements of sepsis resuscitation bundles are most beneficial. Ferrer and colleagues sought to analyze the association between timing of antibiotic administration and mortality. The authors also evaluated whether an optimal time window for empiric antibiotic administration can be determined.. Using the database compiled for the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC), the authors examined data entered between January 2005 and February 2010. Specifically, they analyzed data from 17,990 of 28,150 patients in the SSC database with severe sepsis and septic shock. They found that delay in antibiotic administration was associated with increased in-hospital mortality. As with any retrospective study, there ...

The insulin project is set up as a series of milestones with the goal of developing a simple and less expensive insulin production protocol than those now in use. Their hope is that open source technology will make it more attractive for a pharmaceutical company to take the technology to scale. Di Francos group is focusing on open-source methods, rather than a leap into manufacturing and sales. He said the process of Food and Drug Administration approval-needed for any product destined for human consumption-is "another order of magnitude from what we are trying to accomplish right now.". By starting with development of an open protocol, the group hopes to avoid one of the barriers to production. Developing a form of the drug for medical use requires passing regulatory hurdles and massive capital investment. However, companies are wary of sinking money into research and development for a generic product that may not have the profit potential of proprietary formulations.. Di Franco acknowledged ...

The individuals for this study included the last 105 consecutive subjects who were part of a cohort of 459 stroke patients in the Kansas City Stroke Study. The participants were recruited from any of 12 participating hospitals in the greater Kansas City area. Details on subject eligibility and recruitment have been described in a previous report.16 To be accepted into this study, the subject had to have a confirmed eligible stroke, defined by World Health Organization criteria17 as of "rapid onset and of vascular origin reflecting a focal disturbance of cerebral function, excluding isolated impairments of higher function and persisting longer than 24 hours." The stroke was confirmed by clinical assessment and/or by a CT/MRI scan. Trained nurses/physical therapists reviewed medical records and interviewed both patients and physicians to determine whether the patient was eligible and had consented to enrollment. The patients were evaluated with a variety of standardized assessments at enrollment ...
Most families want to honour their loved ones known donation wishes. A one-in-three veto rate suggests families are encountering barriers to organ donation in the hospital.
Mr Nölke explained that Ireland could increase its pool of heart donors by using organs from "increased risk donors." These include older people and people with a history of drug use, cancer or an infectious disease which can be treated with effective therapy such as Hepatitis C.. When it comes to donor hearts a person aged 50 would be considered an older donor but worldwide that age (of heart donors) was steadily increasing, he said.. While patients in the Mater are currently offered a donor heart from increased risk donors, this usually takes place immediately prior to the operation and if the patient refuses then the next person on the list is offered the increased risk donor heart. Refusing a donation from an increased risk donor does not affect a persons place on the list.. "Everyone goes on to a common list and the sickest person on the night gets transplanted first so, that might be the person who went on it yesterday or it might be the person who has been on it for a year.

In the U.S., UK and in many other countries, the gap between the demand and the supply of human organs for transplantation is on the rise, despite the efforts of governments and health agencies to promote donor registration. In some countries of continental Europe, however, cadaveric organ procurement is based on the principle of presumed consent. Under presumed consent legislation, a deceased individual is classified as a potential donor in absence of explicit opposition to donation before death. Abadie and Gaye analyzed the impact of presumed consent laws on donation rates. For this purpose, they construct a dataset on organ donation rates and potential factors affecting organ donation for 22 countries over a 10-year period. They find that while differences in other determinants of organ donation explain much of the variation in donation rates, after controlling for those determinants presumed consent legislation has a positive and sizeable effect on organ donation rates ...
As regular PulmCCM readers know, the ProCESS, ARISE and ProMISe randomized trials showed no benefit of protocolized early goal-directed therapy as compared to usual conscientious care in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock.. In response to ProCESS and ARISE, the influential Surviving Sepsis Campaign now advises that measurement of central venous pressure (CVP) and central venous oxygenation (ScVO2) -- two core components of the so-called EGDT sepsis bundle -- are not necessary for all patients with septic shock.. As long as patients have received timely antibiotics and fluid resuscitation, the Campaign says, "requiring measurement of CVP and ScvO2 in all patients ... is not supported by the available evidence.". They further reported that the Surviving Sepsis committee would "immediately review the evidence" to determine whether and when an update is needed to its practice-defining Surviving Sepsis Guidelines.. After the publication of ProMISe, it looks like that revision is coming ...
The primary conclusion of the trial will be based on the results of the primary outcome. If the result of the primary outcome is not statistically significant, the conclusion will be that there is no significant difference between the interventions. The results on all other types of outcomes will be reported for hypothesis-generating purposes. However, we will inspect the confidence interval (CI) to asses if the CI for the group difference contains values of importance, so that we cannot rule out interesting differences.. The primary analysis will include a modified intention-to-treat population, which is defined as all randomized patients, except patients who did not receive CPB-dependent cardiac surgery [9]. A secondary analysis will include the per-protocol population excluding patients with major protocol violations defined as: 1) patients who were randomized to an intervention but did not receive any intervention; and 2) patients who received an incorrect intervention. The dependent ...

CULTURAL change in the hospital system is the key to lifting Australias sub-optimal organ donation rates and not implementing an "opt-out" consent regime, according to transplant experts.. They say improving the way doctors interact with families in tragic circumstances would be more beneficial than a consent model that would have required Australians to opt out of organ donation. Proposals for an opt-out model have now been abandoned.. Australias Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA) was created in January 2009 to lift access to organ transplantation in Australia. However, Australia still had a "major problem in providing organ transplantation to its citizens", according to an editorial in the latest MJA. (1) "We must have an effective and sustained improvement in organ donation rates to bring Australia in line with countries in North America and Europe that are able to provide transplantation to two to three times as many patients as we do", wrote Associate Professor Simone Strasser, a ...
The management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) depends more on the patient history than most other chronic diseases. A patient questionnaire provides a uniform, quantitative, protocolized, "scientific" patient history, with documented prognostic significance for work disability and mortality in RA greater than radiographs and laboratory tests and capacity to distinguish active from control treatment in clinical trials and to monitor clinical care with equivalent or greater significance than joint counts or laboratory tests. Therefore, a "scientific" approach to care of a person with a rheumatic disease involves review of patient function, pain, global status, fatigue, RAPID3, review of systems, self-report joint count, and recent medical history on an MDHAQ before conversation with the patient.

I have to say that the decision didnt come as too much of a surprise to me as I had been getting the vibes for some time that the taskforce was unlikely to come out in favour of legislative change. I dont believe its a huge blow however and I think that much more important steps are being taken to improve donation and transplant rates thanks to the governments acceptance in full of the task forces recommendations that came out in January. Thess aim to increase organ donation rates by 50% over the next 5 years and is based on the success of the Spanish system of organ donation.

Dawn Calle had been expecting to give a kidney to a stranger in what would have been a four-way swap, while someone with a connection to her recipient would donate to Calles husband. The Hispanic population does have lower (organ) donation rates nationally, Joyce Albert, senior clinical transplant coordinator at Yale-New Haven Hospital Transplantation Center, said in an email.
