Cellulitis is a serious and painful infection of the skin and underlying tissue. It commonly occurs on legs and arms, and can spread rapidly if left untreated.
Although cellulitis is very common, there are still many gaps in our understanding of how best to diagnose, treat and prevent it. This webpage describes our work in defining the research agenda for future research into cellulitis, and describes our practice-changing research (see the PATCH I and PATCH II trials) which has influenced recommendations made in clinical guidelines from around the world.
The COAT Study - A study assessing the effectiveness and safety of a 5-day treatment versus the standard 7-day treatment of flucloxacillin for cellulitis.
