Randomized and quasi-randomized controlled trials, comparing azithromycin to amoxycillin or amoxycillin/clavulanic acid in participants with clinical evidence of acute LRTI: acute bronchitis, pneumonia, and acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis were studied.

A rat model of Staphylococcus aureus osteomyelitis was used to compare treatment with co-amoxiclav, flucloxacillin and clindamycin. Co-amoxiclav (amoxycillin/clavulanic acid 200/50 mg/kg), flucloxacillin (200 mg/kg) and clindamycin (50 mg/kg) were injected subcutaneously tds for 28 days, commencing 14 days after infection. Eight days after cessation of treatment, high numbers of staphylococci were recovered from the infected tibiae of all control rats. All treatments, at clinically achievable concentrations, significantly (P < 0.05) reduced the bone bacterial titres. However, 50% of tibiae from co-amoxiclav-treated animals were sterile, compared with 17% and 25% from flucloxacillin- or clindamycin-treated animals respectively. Histopathological examination of tibiae reflected the bacteriological results, and showed that the severity of the osteomyelitis was greatly reduced in antibiotic-treated animals compared with non-treated controls. Twenty-eight days after cessation of therapy, bacterial counts from co-amoxiclav and clindamycin-treated animals remained significantly (P < 0.05) lower than those of non-treated controls, although the gross and microscopic appearance of clindamycin and flucloxacillin-treated tibiae suggested that recrudescence of the infection may have occurred. The results of this study demonstrated that co-amoxiclav was as effective as flucloxacillin and clindamycin in the treatment of an experimental chronic staphylococcal osteomyelitis.
We describe a case of jaw bone necrosis after a lung adenocarcinoma bone metastasis, treated the first time in 2004 by means of pneumonectomy and lymph node ablation. One week after a dental extraction, the patient experienced pain in the mandibular region, in conjunction with alveolar bone exposure. Treatment with amoxicillin and clavulanate every 12 hours for 15 days and 0.2% chlorhexidine rinses was administered and there was a remission of infective complications, but not the closure of the exposed alveolar bone. Only at this time did the patient refer that he was treated with bevacizumab therapy immediately after the extraction. A preventive dental assessment of patients scheduled for bevacizumab therapy should be useful as for the zoledronic acid therapy. Dental surgery procedures for patients during bevacizumab therapy should be carefully evaluated and considered as the last choice, to reduce all possible risks and prevent complications.

Doxycycline and co-amoxiclav were compared in a randomized clinical trial involving adult patients with acute suppurative tracheobronchitis. Patients were treated for 5 to 10 days with either antibiotic following three schemes: co-amoxiclav 500 mg three times daily, or doxycycline 200 mg on day 1 followed by 100 mg daily, or 200 mg daily. Assessment after 5-9 days was based only on clinical parameters. Patients with inadequate response to the initial treatment were crossed over to the alternative antibiotic. Of the 210 patients enrolled, 206 were available for evaluation of efficacy. Both antibiotic regimens proved equally efficacious, with rates of clinical response (cure or improvement) of 89% and 91% for doxycycline and coamoxiclav, respectively. Patients who were crossed over to the alternative antibiotic had a significantly lower cure rate after their second course of antibiotics (22% compared with 70%). Adverse effects, most often of gastro-intestinal origin, were more common in the co-amoxiclav group than in the doxycycline-treated group, but rarely caused cessation of treatment.
This study was undertaken in a 750 bedded multi-specialty referral hospital in Kerala catering to both urban and semi-urban populations. It is a prospective study of patients who attended the medical out-patient department and those admitted with a clinical diagnosis of CAP, during the year 2009. Data were collected based on detailed patient interview, clinical examination and laboratory investigations. The latter included sputum culture and sensitivity pattern. These were tabulated and percentage incidence of etiological pathogens calculated. The antimicrobial sensitivity pattern was also classified by percentage and expressed as bar diagram.

This study demonstrated that A-CA exhibited the lowest bacterial resistance for clinical isolates in primary dentition infections.
Thirty-five of the 80 women (44%) had achieved amenorrhea. Ten women required further treatment; of these seven had a hysterectomy (9%). None of the non-responders had a hysterectomy. Following rollerball endometrial ablation, many women reported improvement in cyclical pelvic pain (73%), pre-menstrual symptoms (65%), ability to do housework (85%), and an improved sexual life (96%). Seventy-nine (99%) women were able to return to normal work within 4 weeks following surgery. The majority of them remained satisfied with treatment (79%) and they would recommend it to a friend (91%).
