Association between chronic lung disease and peri-odontal infection has recently been reported. The microbiology of peri-odontal infection and lung infection is almost similar. The most direct means by which the oral infection might influence lung disease is by aspiration of dental plaque bacteria into the lower respiratory tract. In this case report we are presenting a patient who suffered recurrent lung infection. Intra-oral examination revealed the presence of chronic peri-odontitis, which was not treated before. On providing treatment for lung infection in addition to that for peri-odontal infection, there was no recurrence of lung infection.

The combination of amoxicillin/clavulanate and metronidazole is a widely-accepted empirical regimen for infections of the odontogenic spaces. Once adequate drainage has been established micro-organisms are less likely to grow and multiply, particularly anaerobes. This may obviate the need for anaerobic coverage after drainage in healthy hosts. We studied 60 patients in this randomised prospective study, the objective of which was to evaluate metronidazole as part of an empirical antibiotic regimen after drainage of infections of the odontogenic spaces. Samples of pus were sent for culture and testing for sensitivity. Amoxicillin/clavulanate and metronidazole were given to all patients. After incision and drainage the patients were randomly allocated to two groups. In the first group both antibiotics were continued, and in the second metronidazole was withdrawn. The groups were compared both clinically and microbiologically. There were no significant differences between the groups in the resolution of infection. Thirteen patients (n=6 in the 2-antimicrobial group, and n=7 in the amoxicillin/clavulanate group) showed no improvement during the 48 h postoperatively. Overall there was need to substitute another antibiotic for amoxicillin/clavulanate in only 6 cases. Six patients in the amoxicillin/clavulanate group required the addition of metronidazole after drainage. We conclude that in healthy subjects metronidazole is not necessary in the period after drainage, but its prescription should be based on assessment of clinical and laboratory markers of infection.

We studied the comparative in vitro activities of 10 oral antimicrobial agents against 147 aerobic and 61 anaerobic bacteria making up species in 13 genera (Staphylococcus aureus, streptococci, Eikenella corrodens, Pasteurella multocida, Haemophilus-Actinobacillus spp., M-5, EF-4, Moraxella spp., Flavobacterium IIb, Bacteroides melaninogenicus, Bacteroides spp., Fusobacterium spp., and Peptostreptococcus spp.) that were isolated from bite wounds. Cefuroxime was generally greater than fourfold more active than cephalexin and cefadroxil against all aerobic isolates, including Pasteurella multocida. The fluoroquinolones were highly active against most aerobic isolates but were less active against anaerobic isolates. Ciprofloxacin was generally more active than either enoxacin or ofloxacin. Discrepancies of greater than 30% in the interpretation of susceptibilities between break points suggested by the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards and those related to oral dose peak levels (one-half to one-quarter of maximum achievable concentrations) were noted in 14% (18 of 130) of the instances.

The results of clinical and laboratory studies on the use of augmentin in severe purulent complications after neurosurgical operations are presented. The laboratory studies carried out with the use of an automatic system Cobas Bact (Roch) showed that the numbers of the augmentin resistant strains of Staphylococcus and Enterobacteriaceae among the pathogens were 47 and an average of 64.5%, respectively. Gram-negative bacteria resistant to augmentin were 1.5 to 2 times less frequent than those resistant to amoxycillin. Still, they were much more frequent than those resistant to cefotaxime and ceftriaxone. Clinical efficacy of augmentin was studied in treatment of 39 patients with various affections of the brain such as tumors, trauma, vascular malformations and inflammatory processes. The postoperative complications were represented by meningitis, pneumonia, sepsis and their associations. The use of augmentin in the severe intra- and extracranial complications was favourable in 82.1% of the cases.

Genetic studies on drug-induced liver injury (DILI) have proved challenging, both because of their rarity and their difficulty in replicating observed effects. However, significant progress has now been achieved by both candidate-gene and genome-wide association studies. These two approaches are considered in detail, together with examples of DILI due to specific drugs where consistent associations have been reported. Particular consideration is given to associations between antituberculosis drug-related liver injury and the "slow acetylator" genotype for N-acetyltransferase 2, amoxicillin/clavulanate-related liver injury, and the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II DRB1*1501 allele and flucloxacillin-related injury and the HLA class I B*5701 allele. Although these associations are drug-specific, the possibility that additional, more general susceptibility genes for DILI exist requires further investigation, ideally by genome-wide association studies involving international collaboration. The possibility of interethnic variation in susceptibility to DILI also requires further study.

A clinical trial comparing 5 days' treatment with amoxycillin/clavulanate (group A) and a single dose of fosfomycin trometamol (group B) is presented. The study was done in symptomatic patients presenting to their family practitioner, with the microbiological testing being carried out in a university hospital laboratory. Of 62 patients with significant bacteriuria, 29 were given amoxycillin/clavulanate and 33 fosfomycin trometamol, in a randomized fashion. Cure rates 1 week and 5 weeks after the end of treatment were 72 and 65% in group A and 85 and 81% in group B. Adverse events assessed in 141 patients were unusual (10.1% in group A and 8.3% in group B) and were mild in nature. The results of this study suggest that single-dose treatment with fosfomycin trometamol is effective and acceptable as a conventional course of amoxycillin clavulanate for the treatment of simple acute dysuria and/or frequency with infection.

In a series of 64 patients requiring amputation for lower limb sepsis, the performance of a new antibiotic combination with beta-lactamase-inhibiting properties, amoxycillin plus clavulanic acid (A-CA) (Augmentin; Beecham) in the prophylaxis of postoperative wound sepsis, was compared with that of a combination of amoxycillin and ampicillin (A-A) (Suprapen; Bencard) and a control group. The sepsis rate following A-CA prophylaxis (12,9%) was significantly less than in the control group (x 2 = 18, 49; P less than 0,001). Although not attaining statistical significance (x 2 = 2, 12),, A-CA compared favourably with A-A (sepsis rate 35.3%) in the prevention of post-amputation wound sepsis. There was no statistically significant difference in the development of sepsis between wounds closed primarily and those left unsatured while under A-CA cover. It is concluded that peri-operative antibiotic cover for amputations in septic lower limb lesions is advisable and that A-CA is a valuable antibiotic in this situation.

Cefuroxime axetil (CAE) is an acetoxyethyl ester prodrug of cefuroxime. The efficacy and safety of cefuroxime axetil was studied in a randomized general practice trial in urological infections where cefuroxime axetil 250 mg b.d. was compared with amoxycillin/clavulanate (Augmentin, AUG) 375 mg t.d.s. A randomized trial was then performed in hospital outpatients, who received cefuroxime axetil 250 mg b.d. or cefaclor (CCL) 250 mg t.d.s. Of 140 clinically assessable patients, 108 were cured and 28 improved on cefuroxime axetil (97% success) compared with 75 cured and 13 improved out of 89 on Augmentin (99% success) and 31 cured and 7 improved out of 38 patients treated with cefaclor (97% success). Bacteriology was assessable in 101 patients given cefuroxime axetil (72% cleared), 61 of those given Augmentin (70% cleared) and 27 out of 28 (96%) given cefaclor. As expected, the predominant pathogen was E. coli, accounting for 61% of isolates overall. Drug-related adverse events occurred in 10% of patients given cefuroxime axetil, including diarrhoea in 4%. Eleven percent of patients given Augmentin suffered adverse events (5% diarrhoea) and 5% of those given cefaclor. Superinfections occurred in 4 cefaclor patients (2 Pseudomonas aeruginosa, 1 Candida, 1 E. coli) compared with 2 on cefuroxime axetil (1 Candida, 1 E. coli). Uncomplicated UTI accounted for 92% of cases in the G.P. trial and 82% of cases in the hospital trial. Cefuroxime axetil may be used safely and effectively to treat uncomplicated UTI at a dose of 250 mg b.d.

The study showed Streptococcus pneumoniae to be the most common etiological agent for CAP, in our hospital setting. The other organisms isolated in order of frequency were Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Alpha hemolytic streptococci, Escherichia coli, Beta hemolytic streptococci and atypical coli. S. pneumoniae was most sensitive to linezolid, followed by amoxicillin-clavulanate (augmentin), cloxacillin and ceftriaxone. Overall, the common pathogens causing CAP showed highest sensitivity to amikacin, followed by ofloxacin, gentamycin, amoxicillin-clavulanate (augmentin), ceftriaxone and linezolid. The least sensitivity rates were shown to amoxicillin and cefoperazone.
