In 23 untreated adult periodontitis patients, the occurrence of beta-lactamase producing periodontal bacteria was determined. In addition to non-selective isolation media, selective isolation and growth of beta-lactamase positive subgingival bacterial species was carried out on blood agar plates supplemented with amoxicillin and plates with amoxicillin+clavulanic acid. Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Peptostreptococcus micros, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Bacteroides forsythus and Campylobacter rectus isolates from the non-selective medium were tested for beta-lactamase activity by a nitrocefin disk method (DrySlide) and by a laboratory chromogenic nitrocefin-based test. Isolates from the amoxicillin plates that were absent on the amoxicillin/clavulanic acid plates were identified and tested for beta-lactamase production. Based on the non-selective plates, six of 23 P. intermedia isolates, 2 of 19 B. forsythus isolates and 3 of 23 F. nucleatum isolates were beta-lactamase positive. The beta-lactamase positive species Prevotella loescheii, Prevotella buccae, Prevotella buccalis and Actinomyces spp were recovered from the selective amoxicillin plates. beta-Lactamase positive subgingival species were recovered from 17 of 23 patients (74%) but usually comprised low proportions of the subgingival microbiota (range < 0.01-15%). Comparison of the DrySlide test and the nitrocefin-based laboratory test revealed full agreement of test results. beta-Lactamase activity in whole subgingival plaque was detected in 12 patient samples (52%). It was concluded that beta-lactamase activity in subgingival bacteria in adult periodontitis is a common feature. However, since the majority of the samples showed only low-level enzymatic activity, the clinical relevance of this observation with regard to therapy with unprotected enzyme-susceptible beta-lactams is uncertain, though failure on the other hand, is difficult to rule out when a mechanism of resistance is present. The majority of beta-lactamase positive strains was found among species of the Prevotella genus.
To identify risk factors for late recovery and failure after ambulatory treatment of exacerbations of chronic bronchitis (CB) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The science of antibiotic therapy for infectious diseases continues to evolve. In many instances where empiric coverage is necessary, treatment with more than one agent is considered prudent. If an etiology is identified, antibiotics are modified based on culture and susceptibility data. Even when the organism is known, more than one antibiotic may be needed. Decisions about antibiotics should be made after assessments of pertinent clinical information, laboratory and microbiology information, ease of administration, patient compliance, potential adverse effects, cost, and available evidence supporting various treatment options. Clinicians also need to consider synergy and local resistance patterns in selecting therapeutic options. In this article, the authors outline monotherapy and combination therapy options for several common infectious diseases.

Mycoplasma pneumoniae (M. pneumoniae) is widely recognised as an important cause of community-acquired lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) in children. Pulmonary manifestations are typically tracheobronchitis or pneumonia but M. pneumoniae is also implicated in wheezing episodes in both asthmatic and non-asthmatic individuals. Although antibiotics are used to treat LRTIs, a review of several major textbooks offers conflicting advice for using antibiotics in the management of M. pneumoniae LRTI in children.

All patients completed the study. A significantly higher H. pylori eradication rate with ACCO compared with ACO: (26/30) 86.6 vs. (20/30) 66.6%, respectively (P < 0.05) were observed. No major side-effects were reported, whilst 8% patients complained of mild side-effects; no significant differences were noted between the two groups.

One approach for prosthetic vascular surgery is to continue antimicrobial prophylaxis while intravascular lines and catheters are in place. However this may give rise to antimicrobial resistance in the colonizing bacterial flora. We studied 37 patients undergoing vascular surgery, who received either co-amoxyclav for three days (group 1), ofloxacin plus metronidazole for three days (group 2) or for one day (group 3), respectively. Seventeen hospitalized patients not undergoing surgery or receiving antibiotics were studied as controls. In groups I and II there was a significant decline in susceptibility to cloxacillin (12.8% respectively 23.6%) and ofloxacin (0.5% and 85% respectively) in skin staphylococci. The results from group 3 were intermediate. Molecular typing showed that the patient's susceptible community-derived strains were replaced by genetically unrelated resistant strains, probably hospital derived. Long-term prophylaxis should be avoided as colonization occurs with resistant strains.

Clinicians should be aware of amoxicillin/clavulanate as a drug capable of causing hepatitis with eventual systemic dysfunction. While recovery is usually complete following withdrawal of the drug, in patients with rash associated with hepatic dysfunction, renal insufficiency, or other unusual symptoms, earlier consideration of initiating systemic steroids or liver transplantation referral, in hopes of avoiding progressive systemic response, might be worthwhile.

Human bite injuries, while less frequent than cat or dog bites, usually stem from aggressive behavior, sports, or sexual activity. It has been thought that human bites have a higher rate of infection than animal bites, but this view is likely skewed because of the frequency of closed fist injuries presenting to emergency rooms. Human bites to the genitalia also occur, but are not often reported because of embarrassment.

Amoxicillin/clavulanic acid is a well established broad-spectrum antibacterial treatment which is effective and well tolerated in the treatment of AOM in paediatric patients. The high-dose combination should prove valuable in treating AOM caused by penicillin-intermediate and -resistant S. pneumoniae (approved in the US for penicillin MIC < or =2 mg/L). Based on recent recommendations and the available data, high-dose amoxicillin/clavulanic acid can be considered a treatment of choice for recurrent or persistent paediatric AOM (after failure of amoxicillin alone) where involvement of resistant pathogens is suspected.

One thousand one hundred and sixty-four patients formed the pool of patients from which we intended to recruit children to a controlled trial evaluating the efficacy of amoxicillin-clavulanate and penicillin-V in the treatment of secretory otitis media (SOM). Only 360 patients ended up to be evaluated, consisting only 30% of the primarily involved patients. The spontaneous improvement of the tympanometric condition was the major course of pre-trial dropouts. The demographic composition of included and excluded patients did not differ, as one might have expected. Very little has previously been published about this great number of excluded patients even though other authors must have had the same experience. It is concluded that a 3-month duration of SOM, evaluated by tympanometry by the investigators, is required as a minimum to qualify for entering a trial evaluating SOM.
