About BacAttack

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is one of the most important hospital acquired infections and responsible for 40% of nosocomial infections. CAUTI results in morbidity, mortality, increased hospital stay and costs. The infection rate can be reduced by closed drainage and the use of catheters coated with antimicrobial agents. Biofilm formation is almost always associated with in-dwelling catheters and is extremely resistant to currently marketed antibiotics. The most common type of in-dwelling catheters is the Foley catheter. While they are effective in relieving urinary retention and managing urinary incontinence, these devices provide easy access for microbes to the bladder, resulting in bacteriuria and funguria.

The aim of the BacAttack project is to fill the gap of antimicrobial tools for long term catherisation, as well as resolving the issues concerning resistance development and combatting of multi resistant strains. To this end, new materials with new antimicrobial strategies will be developed to achieve localized controlled and long term drug delivery in catheters for the prevention of CAUTI. BacAttack is a 4-year collaborative project funded by the FP7-HEALTH-2011 programme. The consortium consists of 7 partners from 5 countries with specialties in material science, microbiology, physiology and regulatory issues.
