Welcome to the ARREST Trial website
ARREST (Adjunctive Rifampicin to Reduce Early mortality from STaphyloccocus aureus bacteraemia) is a large randomised clinical trial which is taking place in the UK. It has recruited 770 participants to help find out whether or not giving an antibiotic, called rifampicin, on top of the standard antibiotic, will help sick people with S. aureus blood infections.
This website is designed to provide information about the ARREST Trial, both for people taking part in the trial (participants) and collaborators. Please use the menu to the left of the screen to find out more about the trial.
