Information that will be stored on the database will be anonymised and will include:
- Data from the online questionnaires (described above).
- Relevant data collected during your participation in the INTERVAL or COMPARE study including email address and results from blood samples (including genetic information)
- Results from all laboratory measurements using your nasal samples
- Information on health outcomes collected from routine medical and other health-related records at the time of joining the study and from time to time thereafter.
Your anonymised data will be used by the study investigators to look at characteristics that influence nasal carriage of S. aureus. Stored anonymised data will be used for future medical and health-related studies, which have relevant scientific and ethics approval.
