Solent SMART Pilot Study

This study aims to improve our understanding of the normal germs/bacteria we carry in our upper airways and the resistance of these bacteria to certain antibiotics.

The human airway is home to a wide variety of bacteria and most of these bacteria are harmless to us; however some have the potential to cause disease. It is therefore important that we improve our understanding of what bacteria are carried in the upper airways to help us better recognise the causes of infections and what antibiotics/treatments these bacteria may be resistant to so we can determine the most appropriate ways of treating and preventing them.

This study has now closed to recruitment.
