New OXSCAR collaborative project – Antibiotics in appendicitis study!

We are excited to announce a new potential project that OXSCAR collaborative are hoping to run in the near future. The “Antibiotics in appendicitis” project aims to look into the current use of post-operative antibiotics for patients with simple appendicitis, and in the future to clarify the ideal duration of antibiotics. 

This study is going to be a trainee-led, multi-centre study and we aim to start data collection in the new year. Currently we are putting together a steering group to write the study protocol. We would welcome trainees to join our steering group – this would give you an excellent opportunity to be part of a team to run a regional study. 

If you are interested, please get in touch with Ashvina Segaran ( to discuss further.
