Massey University researchers, in collaboration with Labtests Auckland, are conducting a case-control study titled: “Is the family pet a risk for multidrug resistant bacterial infections?”
The focus of this study is on risk factors for community-acquired multidrug resistant bacterial infections, where human cases infected with resistant bacteria (ESBL/AmpC E. coli or Klebsiella) will be compared to a population of healthy controls. This will enable investigation of the sources of multidrug resistant bacteria outside of hospitals and residential care facilities. As a result, we hope to provide important information for designing the best public health interventions in order to minimise the spread of multidrug resistant bacteria both within households and the wider community.
Full human ethics approval has been granted for this study (HDEC 15/CEN/47). Case and control participants are being recruited from Auckland and Northland regions from September 2015 until October 2016.
