Please take a look at this interesting trial. We were coordinating center for North America. Results will be published soon.

The DIANA study is a multicenter international observational cohort study investigating adult critically ill patients receiving empirical antimicrobial therapy for suspected or confirmed bacterial infections at the ICU. An international steering committee was established in 2015 and consisted of members of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) Infection section. A network of national coordinators recruited investigators, coordinated study participation and monitored local ethics committee approval at each participating center in the individual countries. The study was not funded and participation was voluntary. The trial was registered in ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT02920463).

The first results of the DIANA study will be presented at the upcoming ESICM LIVES meetingin Berlin, on Monday September 30thin the Presidents’ Ground Breaking Research Release session in Room Berlin at 16h05
