Over a six-month period in 1993, 2972 non-duplicated isolates of Escherichia coli causing urinary tract infections were collected in a French teaching hospital (n = 785) and in three private laboratories (n = 2187). The resistance rate to amoxycillin-clavulanate combination (MIC > 16 mg/l) was 25.0% in the hospital isolates and 10.0% in the community isolates. Respectively, 27.5% and 45.0% of hospital and community isolates resistant to amoxycillin-clavulanate exhibited an unusual beta-lactam resistance pattern, suggesting inhibitor-resistant TEM (IRT) beta-lactamase production. These isolates were highly resistant to amoxycillin-clavulanate (MIC90 > 1024 mg/L), but were susceptible to cephalosporins (MIC < 32 mg/L). Enzyme extracts of these IRT-producing strains focused at pI 5.2 (n = 100) or 5.4 (n = 53). DNA-DNA hybridization confirmed that the beta-lactamases involved in this resistance mechanism were TEM-1 derived and contained variations in the altered positions described in IRT enzymes. This study shows a total frequency of 4.9% of IRT-producing isolates among E. coli isolated from urine specimens.

To evaluate the change in nasopharyngeal carriage of S. pneumoniae during antibiotic therapy prescribed for acute otitis media.
amoxal duo suspension
The investigation included 38 patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbation hospitalized at the Institute for Pulmonary Diseases of Vojvodina, Sremska Kamenica. The patients were randomly selected for the antibiotic treatment with Amoxiclav twice a day in 12 hour intervals. The clinical effects of the applied treatment were evaluated by analyzing certain laboratory findings, microbiological sputum findings and improvement of subjective symptoms.

Occurrence of peristomal wound infections and other infections within one week after percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy.

Ten (7%) out of 143 consecutive interventions in orthognathic surgery were complicated by a SSI. All the SSI were secondary to a mandibular ramus sagittal split osteotomy. The two significantly correlated risk factors with the SSI in multivariate analysis were the length of surgery and the type of antibiotic prophylaxis.

The one-year results of a regenerative procedure in patients treated with or without antibiotics are presented. Expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) was placed over mandibular molar Class II furcation invasions and retained for four weeks. The patients in group 1 received no antibiotics; patients in group 2 received amoxicillin/clavulanate potassium during the first 10 post-operative days. The initial differences in tested microorganisms and post-surgical inflammation indicated that the use of the antibiotic might enhance the long-term outcome. After one year, the reduction in mean probing depth of the furcation invasions was 2.0 +/- 1.2 mm for group 1 and 1.8 +/- 1.1 mm for group 2. An overall gain of 0.8 mm of clinical attachment was found. Twenty-two of the 24 sites were re-entered. Wide individual variations were found but the changes between pre-treatment and one-year data for any of 6 linear measurements of hard tissue landmarks did not differ between groups or between pre-treatment and re-entry. A combination of an overall loss of 0.4 mm alveolar bone at the crest and 0.3 mm gain of bone at the bottom of the furcation defects was found. Volumetric analysis indicated an average 32% bone fill for both groups, ranging from a decrease in defect volume by 84% (gain) to an increase of the size of the furcation invasion by 66% (loss). A decrease in defect volume > 30% was found at 7 sites from each group. The antibiotic may have controlled initial inflammation, but 12 months later it had no direct effect on bone regeneration or soft tissue attachment.

A contemporary (2002-2003) national collection of 2100 strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae obtained from 30 sites in the nine United States (US) census regions were tested to determine the comparative antimicrobial properties of amoxicillin/clavulanate and 15 other antimicrobials. The rank order of antimicrobials with the lowest susceptibility rates was: penicillin (67.9%)or=41.1%), trimethoprim/sulphamethoxazole (38.9%), tetracyclines (22.2%) and clindamycin (10.0%). Geographical variation in the susceptibility patterns among US census zones was present with lowest penicillin and erythromycin susceptibility noted for West South Central and West North Central zones (or=+0.9%), sinus isolates (+2.7%), middle ear fluid isolates (+5.5%), penicillin-resistant strains (>or=+5.8%) and strains from patients <2 years of age (>or=+2.4%). Local and global surveillance studies of common respiratory pathogens such as S. pneumoniae remain instrumental to guide clinicians in appropriate empirical treatments and to emphasize the need for prudent antimicrobial use.

Alloiococcus otitidis is a slow growing organism which has been isolated in a few studies on patients with otitis media with effusion (OME). According to the literature review, there is no study about the molecular typing of A. otitidis. In this study, the characteristics of A. otitidis isolates from patients with OME were investigated via Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) typing method.

This study compared the relative effectiveness of two antimicrobial preparations, amoxicillin and amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium (Augmentin), in the treatment of acute maxillary sinusitis in children 2 to 16 years of age. Of 171 children with persistent (ten to 30 days' duration) nasal discharge or daytime cough or both, 136 (80%) had abnormal maxillary sinus radiographs. These children were stratified by age and severity of symptoms and randomly assigned to receive either amoxicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium, or placebo. After the exclusion of 28 children with throat cultures positive for group A Streptococcus and 15 who did not complete their medication, the remaining 93 children were evaluated: 30 received amoxicillin, 28 received amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium, and 35 received placebo. Clinical assessment was performed at three and ten days. On each occasion, children treated with an antibiotic were more likely to be cured than children receiving placebo (P less than .01 at three days, P less than .05 at ten days). The overall cure rate was 67% for amoxicillin, 64% for amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium, and 43% for placebo.
