Gatifloxacin vs cefuroxime axetil in patients with acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis.
For P-haemolytic streptococci we reported: (i) susceptibility to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid using surrogate CLSI breakpoints for ampicillin; (ii) susceptibility to cefuroxime using surrogate CLSI breakpoints for ceftriaxone; and (iii) susceptibility to trimethoprim/ sulphamethoxazole using surrogate CLSI breakpoints for S.
Antibiotics: The antibiotics used were: ampicillin, sulphamethoxazole and trimethoprim (Fako, Istanbul, Turkey), ampicillin+sulbactam (Bilim, Istanbul, Turkey), cephalothin (Lilly, Istanbul, Turkey), cefuroxime (GlaxoSmith Kline, Istanbul, Turkey), ceitriaxone (Deva, Istanbul, Turkey), amikacin (Mustafa Nevzat, Istanbul, Turkey) and ciprofloxacin (Bayer, Istanbul, Turkey).
The fact that 1 isolate from a juvenile Western sandpiper sampled far from human settlements on the tundra had resistance to cefadroxil, cefuroxime, and cefpodoxime, a resistance pattern commonly seen in clinical isolates, supports the theory of introduction by migration and transfer of bacteria between birds.
Conclusions: These results support the conclusion that 5 days of treatment with telithromycin is as safe and effective in patients with ABMS as a 10-day course of treatment with amoxicillin-clavulanate or cefuroxime axetil.
Amoxicillin/clavulanate was switched to cefuroxime in 1 case, to ceftazidime in 1 case, and to ceflazidime and amikacin in 1 case; cultures of pus taken from the mastoid or abscess cavity in these 3 cases were sterile.
TMP-SMX and amoxicillin had the highest resistance rates of 54% (N=15) and 46% (N=13) respectively, followed by cefuroxime 14% (N=4) and ciprofloxacin and nitrofurantoin with 11% (N=3) resistance (Fig.
On 3 following days, before and during treatment with cefuroxime, 5 blood cultures were collected in BACTEC aerobic pediatric resin bottles (Becton Dickinson, Sparks, MD, USA) and incubated in the BACTEC 9240 (Becton Dickinson).
We prescribed a 4-week course of guaifenesin/pseudoephedrine, a topical nasal steroid, and cefuroxime, but her nasal symptoms returned following the completion of treatment.
