Infection clinical trials at UCSF
1 in progress, 1 open to new patients

  • Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY)

    open to eligible people ages 12 years and up

    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.
