New research study in Exeter: Help us find a way to prevent bloodstream infections

People aged 60 years or older with a history of urinary tract infection (UTI) are at an increased risk of developing a bloodstream infection caused by E. coli bacteria.

We are looking for participants for a clinical research study to assess the effectiveness and safety of an investigational vaccine in the prevention of bloodstream infections. 

If you are interested, or you know someone who might be, please let them know about the study and share the contact details below. Further information on the study can also be found here

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:
