Two independent, investigator-blinded, multicenter, randomized clinical trials compared the clinical and bacteriologic efficacy and safety of two oral antibiotics, cefuroxime axetil and amoxicillin/clavulanate, in the treatment of patients with secondary bacterial infections of acute bronchitis (hereafter denoted acute bronchitis). Three hundred sixty patients with signs and symptoms of acute bronchitis were enrolled at 22 centers and were randomly assigned to receive 10 days of treatment with either cefuroxime axetil 250 mg twice daily (BID) (n= 177) or amoxicillin/clavulanate 500 mg three times daily (TID) (n = 183). Patients were assessed for both clinical and bacteriologic responses once during treatment (at 3 to 5 days) and twice after treatment (at 1 to 3 days and at 13 to 15 days). Bacteriologic assessments were based on sputum specimen cultures obtained before treatment and, when possible, after treatment. Organisms were isolated from the pretreatment sputum specimens of 162 (45%) of 360 patients, with the primary pathogens being Haemophilus influenzae, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Moraxella catarrhalis, and Staphylococcus aureus (28%, 25%, 11%, 9%, and 8% of isolates, respectively). Thirty-four percent of the H influenzae isolates and 94% of the M catarrhalis isolates that were tested for beta-lactamase production were positive. A satisfactory clinical outcome (cure or improvement) was achieved in 86% (117 of 136) and 83% (130 of 157) of the clinically assessable patients treated with cefuroxime axetil or amoxicillin/clavulanate, respectively (P = 0.45). With respect to the eradication of bacterial pathogens, a satisfactory outcome (cure, presumed care, or cure with colonization) was obtained in 91% (53 of 58) and 86% (60 of 70) of bacteriologically assessable patients treated with cefuroxime axetil or amoxicillin/clavulanate, respectively (P = 0.32). Treatment with amoxicillin/clavulanate was associated with a significantly higher incidence of drug-related adverse events than was treatment with cefuroxime axetil (39% vs 23%; P = 0.001), primarily reflecting a higher incidence of drug-related gastrointestinal adverse events (37% vs 15%; P < 0.001), particularly diarrhea and nausea. Four patients in the cefuroxime axetil group and eight patients in the amoxicillin/clavulanate group withdrew from the study because of drug-related adverse events. These results indicate that cefuroxime axetil 250 mg BID is as effective as amoxicillin/clavulanate 500 mg TID in the treatment of patients with acute bronchitis but produces fewer gastrointestinal adverse events, particularly diarrhea and nausea.

This multicenter, prospective, randomized, investigator-blinded, parallel-group trial compared oral cefditoren 200 and 400 mg BID with oral amoxicillin/clavulanate 875/125 mg BID for 14 days in adult outpatients with CAP.

Cryptococcosis is a polymorphous disease occurring especially in the course of the Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). It puts so diagnostic that therapeutical problems in African countries. The objective of this observation is to report a case of nasal localization with a cutaneous cryptococcosis. It has been confirmed by the histopathologic study of the cutaneous biopsy. The patient was 42 year-old female, HIV positive, bachelor and hospitalised for epistaxis with cutaneous tumefaction and lesions of the nose. The rate of CD4 was 98/mm3. The treatment was based on amphotericine B. Patient died from neuro meningitis extension of the disease.

Of the 150 bacteria identified, 51 were P. gingivalis, 45 were black-pigmented Prevotella spp., 36 were F. nucleatum and 18 were A. actinomycetemcomitans. All the isolates were sensitive to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and to moxifloxacin, but exhibited variable susceptibility patterns to the other antimicrobial agents tested.

The roles of beta-lactamase and alterations in penicillin-binding protein in the development of amoxicillin and amoxicillin/clavulanate resistance in two beta-lactamase-positive, amoxicillin/clavulanate-resistant (BLPACR) strains of Haemophilus influenzae were investigated. Seven beta-lactamase-negative, ampicillin-resistant (BLNAR) strains were also studied for comparison of their resistance mechanisms. All strains had been recovered from patients in Japan. The TEM type beta-lactamase of the two BLPACR strains had 100% homology with the amino acid sequences of published TEM-1 beta-lactamase, showing that amoxicillin/clavulanate resistance was not associated with mutations in this beta-lactamase. However, these strains, as well as the seven BLNAR strains, had multiple mutations in ftsI, which encodes penicillin binding protein 3 (PBP3). The transformation of H. influenzae Rd strain with amplified ftsI genes from two BLPACR and two BLNAR strains enabled the selection of amoxicillin/clavulanate-resistant transformants with the same mutations as their parent strains. We concluded that amoxicillin/clavulanate resistance in the two BLPACR strains was due to changes in PBP3. The possibility of the presence of an extended spectrum beta-lactamase was excluded in the BLPACR strains studied.

In two patients, men aged 35 and 69 years admitted postoperatively to the intensive care unit, fever of unknown origin developed. One had been admitted because aspiration was suspected. He had been treated immediately with amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. The other had undergone oesophageal excision and gastric reconstruction because of oesophageal carcinoma and had been subjected to antibiotic decontamination (amphotericin B, norfloxacine en fungizone). No cause for the fever was detected, but it quickly subsided after discontinuation of the amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and the norfloxacine, respectively. When encountering fever of unknown origin in intensive care patients it is always important to think of drug fever.

Our results indicate that cefuroxime axetil twice a day is as effective as amoxicillin/clavulanate three times a day in the treatment of acute bacterial maxillary sinusitis but produces fewer adverse effects.
A total of 231 febrile under-fives were enrolled in the study. Of all the children, 20.3% (47/231, 95%CI, 15.10-25.48), 9.5% (22/231, 95%CI, 5.72-13.28) and 7.4% (17/231, 95%CI, 4.00-10.8) had urinary tract infections, P. falciparum malaria and bacteremia respectively. In general, 11.5% (10/87, 95%CI, 8.10-14.90) of the children had two infections and only one child had all three infections. Predictors of urinary tract infections (UTI) were dysuria (OR = 12.51, 95% CI, 4.28-36.57, P < 0.001) and body temperature (40-41 C) (OR = 12.54, 95% CI, 4.28-36.73, P < 0.001). Predictors of P. falciparum severe malaria were pallor (OR = 4.66 95%CI, 1.21-17.8, P = 0.025) and convulsion (OR = 102, 95% CI, 10-996, P = 0.001). Escherichia coli were the common gram negative isolates from urine (72.3%, 95% CI, 66.50-78.10) and blood (40%, 95%CI, and 33.70-46.30). Escherichia coli from urine were 100% resistant to ampicillin, 97% resistant to co-trimoxazole, 85% resistant to augmentin and 32.4% resistant to gentamicin; and they were 100%, 91.2% and 73.5% sensitive to meropenem, ciprofloxacin and ceftriaxone respectively.
