Follow-up visits were planned, without further treatment, for weeks 17, 26, and 38. Iron supplementation was still left to the discretion of the treating physician. End Points We evaluated all efficacy end points in week 13 before surgery. The principal efficacy end point was the proportion of sufferers with control of uterine bleeding at week 13, which was defined as a PBAC score of less than 75 . Hemoglobin amounts, hematocrit, and ferritin amounts had been measured at all appointments. Efficacy end points were assessed every 4 weeks except for the uterine fibroid symptoms and fibroid and uterine quantity, which were assessed at baseline and at week 13. Efficacy end factors beyond week 13 had been exploratory.Initial, chlorhexidine reduces skin colonization by many pathogens, thus protecting individuals in the ICU from their own microbiota during a amount of heightened vulnerability to contamination.11-14 Second, common decolonization reduces environmentally friendly microbial burden, reducing opportunities for patient-to-patient transmitting.14,23 Third, universal decolonization began on the 1st ICU day, thus avoiding the delay in decolonization pending the total results of screening testing.
