This study recommends piv-mecillinam or amoxicillin-clavulanate as empirical treatment of first time pyelonephritis in Danish children from 6 months of age. Age and gender of patients should be taken into consideration when initiating empirical treatment.

Kinetics of the reactions of amoxicillin sodium and potassium clavulanate alone and in combination were investigated in the frozen state at selected pH values of 2.0, 4.6 and 7.0. Extrapolation of the rate constant values to the frozen state from the liquid state data indicated marked acceleration of the rates of amoxicillin and clavulanate degradation for the pH values investigated. The highest acceleration in rate recorded was 15.0-fold for clavulanate and the lowest value was 4.6-fold for amoxicillin at -7.3 degrees C in the hydrochloric acid system. The rate constant values obtained were interpreted in terms of the concentration model [Pincock, R.E., Kiovsky, T.E., 1966. Kinetics of reactions in frozen solution. J. Chem. Educ. 43, 358-360], phase-temperature relationship of the solutes, buffer catalysis, pH change and polymerization reactions. A kinetic model was deduced for the hydrochloric acid system providing adequate explanation of the experimental results. A large stabilizing effect of sodium chloride used for maintaining constant ionic strength (micro=0.5) was evident in this system. The shelf-life of amoxicillin was increased from 2.2 to 58.7h at -7.3 degrees C when sodium chloride was included in the hydrochloric acid system.

The role of routine antimicrobial treatment of acute middle-ear infections is under debate, because the efficacy of antimicrobials in the resolution of middle-ear fluid has not been unambiguously proven. Acute tube otorrhea is regarded as evidence of acute otitis media, and for methodologic reasons it was chosen to provide objectivity for diagnostics and outcome assessment. The objective of this study was to assess whether amoxicillin-clavulanate accelerates the resolution of acute tube otorrhea.
Three hundred bacterial strains from positive urine cultures were isolated over a 10 months period in paediatric hospitalized and out-patients. In addition to commonly used antibiotics, each strain was tested for amoxycillin-clavulanic acid (Augmentin, Beecham) susceptibility. This antibiotic, which is a potent inhibitor of bacterial beta lactamases, may be of interest in the treatment of urinary tract infections because of its pharmacokinetics and activity. The antibacterial activity of amoxycillin and Augmentin against Enterobacteriaceae with special reference to Escherichia coli was compared. The resistance phenotype of Enterobacteriaceae to amoxycillin, carbenicillin and cephalothin allows to anticipate the nature of the beta-lactamase produced by a particular strain, and infer the activity of Augmentin. The overall activity of Augmentin should be interpreted taking into account the resistance phenotypes. In our study, Augmentin was active against 90% of E. coli strains, almost all Proteus mirabilis and vulgaris strains but 9 out of 24 Klebsiella strains were resistant. Augmentin had no activity against nosocomial Enterobacteriaceae, nor against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. On the other hand, its activity was of interest against penicillinase producing Staphylococcus. Our results confirm the interest of Augmentin as a preferential treatment of urinary tract infections in children.

There has been an increase in the resistance of both Co-amoxiclav and Ciprofloxacin since 2009. Co-amoxiclav and trimethoprim now have similar resistance rates. Ciprofloxacin resistance has risen fairly quickly in the last four years from 1% to 8%. Resistance to nitrofurantoin has remained low. Gentamicin resistance remained stable and very low, second best to meroponem.

Fifteen of 54 patients developed a wound infection. Of these, 10 had received a placebo; 3, cefuroxime; and 2, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid.

A cross-sectional study was carried out in the emergency services of 10 hospitals in different Spanish regions. We chose patients diagnosed as having acute respiratory infection, aged over 14 years. Among the collected variables were: type of respiratory infection, antibiotic prescription, comorbidity, qualification of the prescribing doctor and hospital admission. The consensus conference held by a panel of experts established first choice treatment and the alternative and inappropriate use for each respiratory infection, based on the available scientific evidence. All the observed prescriptions in our study were classified according to this pattern.

Antibiotic prophylaxis has been used to good effect in the prevention of post-operative wound infections in patients undergoing gastrointestinal operations. We have assessed the use of a single dose of intravenous antibiotic (Augmentin 1.2 g), given with induction of anaesthesia as prophylaxis, against post-operative wound infection in women undergoing clean, elective breast surgery. Three hundred and thirty-four patients were recruited. Of the 164 receiving antibiotic prophylaxis 29 (17.7%) had wound infections compared with 32 (18.8%) in the placebo group (P=0.79). There were no significant differences in any other post-operative infective complications. Antibiotic prophylaxis is probably not required in clean, elective breast surgery.
Short course beta-lactam antibiotic therapy for acute otitis media (AOM) should improve patient adherence, but it has not been evaluated since the heptavalent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine became routinely used in the United States.
