The Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY) trial is the first ever international multi-center randomized controlled trial in bone cancer surgery. In order to avoid amputation for bone cancer in the leg, complex limb-saving operations are performed. However, infections with devastating complications following surgery are common. Surgeons from across the world will randomize patients to receive either short- or long-duration antibiotic regimens after surgery with the goal of identifying the best regimen to reduce these infections.

Infections are common and associated with poor outcomes as well as high financial costs after kidney transplantation. Identifying and implementing strategies to reduce infections after kidney transplantation is important for improving patient outcomes. This study seeks to determine the feasibility of body surface area-based dosing of mycophenolate compared to standard dosing of mycophenolate in a pilot randomized controlled trial.
