Four hundred and three strict anaerobic clinical isolates were prospectively collected from February 2011 to April 2012 in eight Belgian university hospitals. MICs were determined by one central laboratory for 11 antimicrobial agents using Etest methodology.

Adequacy and effectiveness of empirical antibacterial therapy of severe nosocomial infections with meropenem vs. combined regimens of antibacterial therapy were investigated and the ratio of the cost and effectiveness of the compared regimens was evaluated. A prospective, randomized, open, comparative study of two initiative regimens of empirical antibacterial therapy of severe nosocomial infections was performed: meropenem in a daily dose of 1.5-3 g and the standard regimen with the use of betalactams and fluoroquinolones in combination with aminoglycosides and/or metronidazole. Patients with recorded diagnosis of nosocomial pneumonia (including the ventilator-associated one) or abdominal infection with the signs of severe sepsis and severity of APACHE II > 14 were enrolled. The patients were stratified into 2 groups subject to the disease severity, i.e. APACHE II 15-20 and APACHE II 21-25. One hundred thirty five out of 166 patients with recorded nosocomial infection were included into the final estimate of the therapy adequacy and effectiveness (Protocol Analysis): 62 patients were treated with meropenem and in the treatment of 73 patients the standard antibacterial therapy was used. In the group of the patients treated with meropenem there were stated significantly higher clinical effectiveness (recovery in 80.6% of the patients vs. the control of 46.6%, p < 0.01) and pathogen eradication (89.6 and 48.1% respectively, p < 0.01). The difference in the clinical and bacteriological effectiveness of meropenem and the standard therapy was more evident in the subgroups of more severe patients (APACHE > 20). With the use of meropenem the probability of recovery from nosocomial infection was significantly higher (RR 1.73-1.94, p < 0.001) vs. the control. Meropenem provided significantly higher eradication of the pathogens: P. aeruginosa (88 and 40% respectively, p = 0.007), E. coli (100 and 46.7%, p = 0.003), Acinetobacter spp. (90.9 and 40%, p = 0.02). The antibacterial therapy with the use of meropenem was assessed as adequate in 51 out of 56 patients (91.1%), that was 3 times as frequent as with the use of the standard antibacterial therapy (33.9%). The cost-effectiveness coefficient with the use of meropenem was 2.2 times lower vs. the control. Therefore, the empirical therapy of severe nosocomial infections with meropenem proved to be more adequate and from the economic viewpoint more advantageous vs. the standard combined regimens of antibacterial therapy, that was evident from significantly higher clinical and bacteriological efficacy of the treatment and decrease of the terms of the patients hospitalization in intensive care units (on the average by 5 days).

At our base case estimates, initial treatment of recurrent CDI using FMT colonoscopy was the most cost-effective strategy, with an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of $17 016 relative to oral vancomycin. Fidaxomicin and metronidazole were both dominated by FMT colonoscopy. On sensitivity analysis, FMT colonoscopy remained the most cost-effective strategy at cure rates >88.4% and CDI recurrence rates <14.9%. Fidaxomicin required a cost <$1359 to meet our cost-effectiveness threshold. In clinical settings where FMT is not available or applicable, the preferred strategy appears to be initial treatment with oral vancomycin.

Large meta-analyses of second-line Helicobacter pylori eradication with fluoroquinolone triple therapy have shown that neither 7-day nor 10-day therapy provides 90% or better treatment success. Reports describing second-line H. pylori eradication using 14-day fluoroquinolone-containing triple therapy are few. Current study aimed to determine the efficacy of a 14-day levofloxacin/amoxicillin/proton-pump inhibitor regimen as second-line therapy and the clinical factors influencing the outcome.

When the dose of radiation was over 60 Gy, complete response rates of nasopharyngeal tumor and lymph node metastases in treatment group were significantly higher than in the control group (93.5% vs 77.8%; 89.1% vs 93.5%, p<0.05). Three months after radiotherapy, complete response rate of nasopharynx cancer and lymph node metastases in treatment group was both 97.8%, again higher than in the control group (84.4% and 82.2%) (p<0.05). In the treatment group, 1, 3, 5 year disease-free survival rates were 95.7%, 86.7% and 54.5%; and in control group, the corresponding disease-free survival rates were 93.3%, 66.2% and 38.6%, respectively, the difference being statistically significant (log-rank =5.887, p=0.015). One, 3, 5 year overall survival rates in two groups of patients were 97.8%, 93.5%, 70.4% and 95.5%, 88.07%, 48.4%, respectively, again with a statistically significant difference (log-rank=6.470, p=0.011). Acute toxicity and long-term radiotherapy related toxicity in the two groups did not differ (p>0.05).

Clostridium difficile is a common cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea, but it rarely causes extra-colonic disease. An 83-year-old woman who developed culture-positive C. difficile-associated diarrhoea following pneumonia and a total hip replacement was treated successfully with oral metronidazole therapy. She was readmitted 12 months later for revision of the hip prosthesis because of increasing pain. At surgery an abscess associated with the prosthesis was discovered. Culture of the pus grew C. difficile. When the surgical isolate and the cryopreserved faecal isolates were compared using Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE), an identical banding pattern was observed. This case extends the clinical spectrum of C. difficile infection by documenting a prolonged interval between the initial infection, and diagnosis of the prosthetic joint infection. The importance of molecular typing to show strain relatedness is demonstrated.
