CLiCK Trial Summary

This trial will test whether a new type of catheter locking solution can help reduce complications in patients with central venous access devices.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults over 18 in the ICU with a central venous catheter needing locking. It's not for those who refuse blood products, are sensitive to EDTA, pregnant, involved in other conflicting studies, or previously enrolled.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if 4% EDTA solution (KiteLock) is better than normal saline as a lock solution to prevent infections and blockages in catheters used by ICU patients. It's a multi-center study comparing these two methods.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects of using the EDTA lock solution may include allergic reactions due to sensitivity to EDTA. However, specific side effects are not detailed here and would be monitored during the trial.
