WP3 will perform a search for databases that include individual patients’ data on bacterial infections, in particular those due to AMR.
The partners involved have ample experience in gathering the databases from the different studies performed within the COMBACTE consortia as part of the COMBACTE-MAGNET (see WP1) project. Based on a predefined analysis plan to be accepted by the relative databases governance boards, GSK will facilitate data extraction and data transfer from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) and the MarketScan databases. We will perform a systematic review of scientific and grey literature in order to identify published relevant studies (epidemiological and clinical), clinical and administrative databases and projects related to human infections caused by target antimicrobial resistant pathogens.
In addition, we will consider potential inputs from e.g. the GRAM project (sponsored by a.o.FlemingFund, Wellcome Trust), BARNARDS(Bill and Melinda Gatesfoundation), ACORN (Wellcome Trust), NeoOBS (GARDP), ATLAS (Pfizer), SMART (Merck) and studies by the ARLG (CRACKLE, others).
Identify existing databases including relevant individual patients’ data on infections caused by antimicrobial-resistant bacteria which would be important for the model(s).
Assess the accessibility to individual patient data and development of a data management and data validation plan.
Development of an eCRF and other data management systems to facilitate and implement harmonized and standardized data extraction.
Set up of an ethical charter for the future use of de-identified data.
Develop a statistical analysis plan that allows providing the data needed to feed the model.
