The efficacy of a diet designed to facilitate dissolution of feline magnesium ammonium phosphate (struvite) uroliths was evaluated in 30 cases of urolithiasis, sterile struvite uroliths dissolved in a mean of 36 days after initiation of dietary treatment. In 5 cases of urolithiasis, struvite urocystoliths associated with urease-negative bacterial urinary tract infection dissolved in a mean of 23 days after initiation of dietary and antimicrobial treatment. In 3 cases of urolithiasis, struvite urocystoliths associated with urease-positive staphylococcal urinary tract infection dissolved in a mean of 79 days after initiation of dietary and antimicrobial treatment. Dissolution of uroliths in cats fed the treatment diet was associated with concomitant remission of dysuria, hematuria, and pyuria, and reduction in urine pH and struvite crystalluria. In one case, a urocystolith composed of 100% ammonium urate, and in another case, a urolith composed of 60% calcium phosphate, 20% calcium oxalate, and 20% magnesium ammonium phosphate did not dissolve.

A randomized, controlled trial of the use of amoxycillin with clavulanic acid (Augmentin) for prophylaxis against wound infections following major surgery, including transplantation, in patients with chronic renal failure, was undertaken. Six of 22 control patients developed wound infections (27%) whereas no patient in the treatment group (24) developed a wound infection (P less than 0.05). After the termination of this trial, the next 35 consecutive patients received prophylactic amoxycillin/clavulanate; of these only two developed wound infections associated with leakage from their pancreatic anastomoses. All the wound infections were shown to be caused by bacteria sensitive to amoxycillin/clavulanate. Pharmacokinetic studies in patients have shown that a bactericidal concentration of the drugs was present for up to 20 h post-operatively in patients on dialysis, and in recipients of non-functioning renal transplants. In patients with normal renal transplant function excretion of the drug within 12 h was observed.

Beta-lactamase-negative ampicillin-resistant (BLNAR) isolates of Haemophilus influenzae have been emerging in some countries, including Japan. The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute has only a susceptible MIC breakpoint (< or = 1 microg/ml) for piperacillin-tazobactam and a disclaimer comment that BLNAR H. influenzae should be considered resistant, which was adapted without presentation of data. In addition, fluoroquinolone-resistant H. influenzae isolates have recently been occasionally reported worldwide. To address these problems, we examined susceptibilities to beta-lactams, including piperacillin-tazobactam, and ciprofloxacin by microdilution and disk diffusion (only for piperacillin-tazobactam) methods, against a total of 400 recent H. influenzae clinical isolates, including 100 beta-lactamase-negative ampicillin-susceptible, beta-lactamase-positive ampicillin-resistant, BLNAR, and beta-lactamase-positive amoxicillin-clavulanate-resistant (BLPACR) isolates each. BLNAR and BLPACR isolates were tested by PCR using primers that amplify specific regions of the ftsI gene. We also detected mutations in quinolone resistance-determining regions (QRDRs) by direct sequencing of the PCR products of DNA fragments. Among beta-lactams, piperacillin-tazobactam exhibited potent activity against all isolates of H. influenzae, with all MICs at < or = 0.5 microg/ml (susceptible). A disk diffusion breakpoint for piperacillin-tazobactam of > or = 21 mm is proposed. We confirmed that all BLNAR and BLPACR isolates had amino acid substitutions in the ftsI gene and that the major pattern was group III-like (87.5%). One ciprofloxacin-resistant isolate (MIC, 16 microg/ml) and 31 ciprofloxacin-susceptible isolates (MICs, 0.06 to 0.5 microg/ml) had amino acid changes in their QRDRs. Piperacillin-tazobactam was the most potent beta-lactam tested against all classes of H. influenzae isolates. It is possible that fluoroquinolone-resistant H. influenzae will emerge since several clinical isolates carried mutations in their QRDRs.
Antimicrobial management of an imminent peritonsillar abscess is still under debate. Clinical experience shows that early administration of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid could prevent unilateral peritonsillitis from developing into an abscess. Here we describe two patients who initially received penicillin V treatment. They both recovered but only after the ENT specialist switched their antibiotic treatment to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid. Although sound evidence is lacking, we suggest that the Practice Guidelines should be revised. In the primary health care setting, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid should become the first drug of choice for patients presenting with unilateral peritonsillar swelling and trismus in situations where the patient is still able to eat and drink and can be seen again within 24 hours.
Facial scans from different time periods were overlaid onto the baseline (T6) facial scan to determine the reduction and changes in swelling following orthognathic surgery.

PMNs from renal transplant recipients showed a diminished phagocytic activity with reduced phagocytosis and bactericidal activity against intracellular Klebsiella pneumoniae, compared to that seen with PMNs from healthy subjects. Co-amoxiclav significantly elicited the functions of PMNs from uremic patients, resulting in an increased percentage of ingested klebsiellae and in a higher bactericidal effect (98-99%), compared with the drug-free control system. When PMNs were collected from renal transplant recipients treated with co-amoxiclav a significant high increase in both phagocytosis and killing activity were detected, showing the co-amoxiclav capability of "restoring" even in vivo the depressed primary functions of PMNs.

The increasing rate of resistance of microorganisms to penicillin and other antibiotics has generated concern among health authorities in Latin America. The present investigation determined the in vitro susceptibility of Porphyromonas gingivalis, Fusobacterium nucleatum, black-pigmented Prevotella spp. and Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans to metronidazole, amoxicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, clindamycin and moxifloxacin in patients with chronic periodontitis.
