How do outcomes compare for individuals with urinary tract infection treated with and without antibiotics?

Antibiotics have long been the standard of care for treatment of urinary tract infections (UTI). However, UTI may be successfully managed without antibiotics, thereby reducing unnecessary contributions to antibiotic resistance. We proposed to compare outcomes (e.g., pyelonephritis, sepsis, GI distress/ diarrhea) in individuals with UTI treated with and without antibiotics, controlling for potential confounders (infection... more »

Do self-reported Nocturia episodes correlate with actual nighttime visits to the toilet; what is the natural history of nocturia

Nocturia is highly prevalent and has significant impact on quality of life. Therapeutic interventions often reduce nocturia episodes by less than one episode per night and rely on self-report data to quantify efficacy. This study will identify a cohort with nocturia and compare self-reported nocturia to actual nighttime visits to the toilet as recorded by wearable technology; and follow over time. We hypothesize that... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Does surgery to relieve obstruction from benign prostate enlargement (BPE) improve metabolic risk profile (MRP)?

Frequent and urgent urination secondary to obstruction from prostate enlargement may reduce physical activity and adherence to diuretics, thereby increasing metabolic risk profile. This study will identify a prospective subcohort of men with incident surgery to relieve bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). We hypothesize relief of LUTS will decrease need to urinate, increase level of physical activity, and reduce MRP. Patient... more »
