Howard S. Faden MD

Department of Pediatrics

Professor

Specialty/Research Focus

Pediatric Infectious Diseases; Pediatrics

 
Professional Summary:

My research over the past 5 years has focused on the recent outbreak of community-associated MRSA skin and soft tissue infections. In our first publication entitled “Clinical and Molecular Characteristics of Staphylococcal Skin Abscesses in Children,” we demonstrated that MSSA accounts for 30-40% of the infections and that MSSA and MRSA share many of the same molecular characteristics including pulse field types and PVL genes. Based on our observations in the first report, we published a second article entitled “Importance of Colonization Site in the Current Epidemic of Staphylococcal Skin Abscesses.” This second publication demonstrated a high rate of rectal colonization in children infected with USA300 strains of S. aureus. We are currently investigating the mechanisms of colonization with USA300 strains of S. aureus.

In the past, my lab focused on the role of nasopharyngeal colonization in otitis media. The current research continues in the same vein although the pathogen is different and the sites of colonization are different. We believe that colonization patterns are the key to disease evolution.

I am also interested in the mechanism of community-acquired C. difficile diarrhea among children. I am investigating the mechanism of tonsil and adenoid hypertrophy among children with sleep apnea with a focus on chronic viral infections.
