Co-amoxiclav induced CDI within the gut model, supporting clinical observations linking co-amoxiclav treatment with CDI onset. This reinforces the value of the gut model as a clinically relevant means of studying CDI. Caution should be exercised in the prescription of co-amoxiclav to patients in high CDI risk settings.

Ninety percent of cases of peritonsillar abscesses complicated angina. Forty-nine percent of patients had no previous antibiotic therapy, 9% had a previous history of peritonsillar abscess, 62% were treated in the emergency department, and fever was present in 64% of cases. The diagnosis was clinical in 98% of cases. The average hospitalization stay lasted 2 days. Sixty-five percent of patients had one needle aspiration of the abscess, 35% had surgical drainage with local anaesthesia. The needle aspiration was negative in 14% of cases. In 29% of cases one bacterium was identified. The patients were completely cured in 10 days. Forty-five percent of patients underwent tonsillectomy at a later date.
A 14-year retrospective single-centre study of 69 consecutive paediatric patients (age 1-14 years) with appendicitis-related peritonitis and positive peritoneal specimen cultures was conducted. Post-operative outcomes, microbiology and antibiotic susceptibility of peritoneal isolates were analysed in all patients.

Cefuroxime axetil has been evaluated previously in the treatment of lower respiratory tract infections, but not specifically in the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia. In a multicentre, investigator-blinded clinical trial, 162 patients with community-acquired pneumonia were randomly assigned to receive orally either cefuroxime axetil 500 mg bid (n = 84) or amoxycillin/clavulanate 500 mg/125 mg tid (n = 78) for 10 days. Organisms were isolated from the pretreatment sputum specimens of 97 of 162 (60%) patients, the commonest isolates being Streptococcus pneumoniae (38%) and Haemophilus influenzae (18%). A satisfactory clinical outcome (cure or improvement) was achieved in 100% (55 of 55) and 96% (49 of 51) of the clinically evaluable patients treated with cefuroxime axetil or amoxycillin/clavulanate, respectively (P = 0.23). With respect to eradication of bacterial pathogens, a satisfactory outcome (cure, presumed cure or cure with colonization) was obtained in 94% (32 of 34) and 93% (37 of 40) of bacteriologically evaluable patients treated with cefuroxime axetil or amoxycillin/clavulanate, respectively (P = 1.00). Both treatment regimens used in this study were well tolerated. The most common drug-related adverse experiences were gastrointestinal events, reported by 8% and 4%, respectively, of the patients in the amoxycillin/clavulanate and cefuroxime axetil groups, a difference which was not statistically significant (P = 0.32). These results indicate that cefuroxime axetil twice a day is as effective as amoxycillin/clavulanate three times a day in the treatment of outpatients with mild to moderate community-acquired pneumonia.

The aim of our study was to compare three search strategies using a computerized administrative database to identify cases of idiosyncratic drug-induced liver injury (DILI) due to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, phenytoin, valproic acid, and isoniazid.

Actinomycosis is a rare infection mainly of the head and neck region (cervicofacial actinomycosis). The cause of this infection is bacterial invasion of the host's mucosal barrier with consecutive infiltration of the surrounding tissues. The treatment of choice after diagnosis is a prolonged course of high-dose antibiotics. The presence of abdominal actinomycosis is at a maximum of 25%, whereas renal involvement appears only sporadically. Aggravating causes for early diagnosis are the appearance of abscesses, fistulae and a debilitating illness resembling carcinoma and leading to surgery as the treatment of choice. Renal actinomycosis is a diagnostic challenge because it is included in the differential diagnosis of renal masses with coexisting B-symptoms. The suspicion requires surgical treatment--nephrectomy. We report on a patient who was transferred to our department for nephrectomy because of radiologically diagnosed renal and perirenal abscesses. The histological result showed renal actinomycosis.

The use of systemic antibiotic prophylaxis in lacrimal drainage surgery is controversial. Some studies have reported high rates of postoperative infection and surgical failure after lacrimal drainage surgery when systemic antibiotic prophylaxis was not routinely administered. Many ophthalmologists have traditionally used antibiotics only in selected patients undergoing dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR), and this study evaluates the success of this strategy.
The present findings are the first to suggest that CA disrupts the in vivo actions of morphine and point toward further studying CA as a potential therapy for drug addiction. Further, its ability to disrupt morphine's rewarding effects at 20-fold lower doses than CTX identifies CA as an existing, orally-active alternative to direct CTX therapy for CNS diseases.
