  Purpose

The presence of S aureus in the nasal passages of diabetic patients may be a risk factor for diabetic foot lesion infections. Our aim is to compare the genetic profiles of S aureus strains found in the noses and on the foot lesions of diabetic patients. The investigators are also studying the virulence of these strains, the prevalance of S aureus at either site, and whether or not the quantity of S aureus found in the nose affects the risk for infection in foot lesions. The investigators also use this study to test the sensitivity and specificity of the GeneXpert system.

Further study details as provided by Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nīmes:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Presence/absence of the same S. aureus genetic profile in the nose and on the foot lesion. [ Time Frame: 3 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Presence/absence of the same S. aureus genetic profile in the nose and on the foot lesion. Genetic profiles do not change with time. This is a transversal, pinpoint measure.


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

The DNA samples correspond to the bacteria present in the nose and feet of diabetic patients.
