ATLAS (Antimicrobial Testing Leadership and Surveillance) Program
Conducted by Pfizer
Active: 2004 Onwards

Primary objective
The ATLAS programme monitors changes in antibiotic susceptibility, bacterial resistance trends and emergence of new resistance mechanism for both marketed and in development antibiotics.  In addition, provides genotypic information when tested.  The SENTRY platform data allow for monitoring of antifungal susceptibility and resistance trending of key antifungals.

 

Protocol SummaryThe ATLAS program is one overall study (formerly TEST, INFORM and AWARE) fulfilling regulatory requirements and supporting appropriate use measures for both marketed antibiotics (Tygacil, Zyvox, Zosyn/Tazocin, Zavicefta, Zinforo, Merrem and others) by monitoring changes in antibiotic susceptibility, bacterial resistance trends and emergence of new resistance mechanisms. CLSI breakpoints are utilized but the option exists to analyse the data by using EUCAST breakpoints. All bacterial isolate identifications and susceptibility profiles are performed by standardized broth microdilution methods by a central lab. The antifungal data from the SENTRY platform are generated by standardized antifungal susceptibility methods performed at a central laboratory.
Isolates collection method:Actively collected from local labs and sent to central laboratory for identification and susceptibility testing.
Types of surveillance:Isolates are collected specifically for surveillance.
Methodology and breakpoints:CLSI breakpoints are utilized but the option exists to analyse the data by using EUCAST breakpoints.

Any additional informationThe ATLAS database is updated every 9 to 12 months with emerging data from across 80 countries. Data for compounds in development are not made available via the public website but are available via publications and medical requests for information. Year in and year out integrated, with search by individual year possible as well. Database system built by Micron Research, UK.
