Staphylococcus aureus is a frequent pathogen of nosocomial infections. The main part in the spread of these microorganisms take symptomless carriers. The aim the research was defining the carrierstate of S. aureus among students of Medical Academy and University. The investigation showed a greater carrierstate in the group of Medical students (33%) than in the group of University students. Strains isolated from the Medical students were more differentiated in biochemical tests and they were more drug-resistant mainly to Augmentin (51.5% resistant strains) and doxycycline (24% resistant strains). A great percentage of ampicillin-resistant strains (94%) was found among the strains isolated from both groups. Results of the research showed greater carrierstate among people who had direct contact with patients and infectious materials and proved a wide range of drug-resistance among hospital strains. Carriers of S. aureus among medical personnel could influence the spreading of nosocomial infections mainly on ICU and Newborn Wards.

All isolates of Enterobacteriaceae and S. pneumoniae recovered in our lab during a one year period were tested for susceptibility to chloramphenicol and amoxicillin-clavulanate or penicillin, respectively.

The majority of patients were over 45 years of age (24/26, 92.4%) and 42% (11/26) were over 80 years of age. At least 50% (13/26) of the patients had acquired CDAD in hospital, 15% (4/26) were community acquired and symptomatic at admission while the onset of diarrhoea following admission to hospital was not documented in 35% (9/26). Three (11%) patients had used PPI. Fifteen per cent (4/26) of patients had no history of previous antibiotic therapy; 40% (10/26) were treated with a cephalosporin, fluoroquinolone or a combination of at least two different classes of antibiotics; one (3%) patient was on augmentin and the antibiotic regime used was not documented in 42% (11/26) who also had previous antibiotic therapy. The conditions for which antibiotics were prescribed could not be ascertained in 58% (15/26) but among the remaining cases antibiotics had been prescribed for urinary tract infection, wound respiratory tract infections and sepsis. Metronidazole (18/26, 70%) was the preferred drug of choice for first line therapy in patients with CDAD. None of the patients in the study received the recommended 10 to 14 days of antimicrobial therapy for CDAD. Recurrent CDAD was observed in 40% of those who were treated with metronidazole. The study also showed that there was timely reporting of laboratory results and good compliance with the hospital Infection Prevention and Control Guidelines.
Tonsillectomy is the most common surgery performed in the pediatric and young adult populations. Although recent guidelines based on meta-analysis suggest that perioperative chemoprophylaxis plays a role in reducing bacteraemia-related post-tonsillectomy complications, there is no evidence or agreement upon which specific antibiotic, dosage or administration route should be preferred. Since few previous studies have assessed the effectiveness of prophylaxis by direct measurement of antibiotic levels both in plasma and tissue, we designed an experimental study to quantitatively evaluate amoxicillin concentrations in children ready for tonsillectomy and compare these plasma and tissue levels with the Minimal Inhibitory Concentrations (MIC) of the bacteria more commonly involved in the upper airway infections.
Obesity is one of the important precipitating factors for primary and recurrent ventral hernias (incisional and umbilical) and it is not uncommon to find these hernias in patients opting for obesity surgery. But, with no consensus or recommendation and concern of mesh infection, surgeons fear in combining these procedures, especially Roux en Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.

Three paraplegic patients with urinary tract infections caused by a beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae were treated with a combination of amoxycillin and clavulanic acid (A-CA) (Augmentin; Beecham), after initial and unsuccessful therapy with amoxycillin alone. The administration of A-CA resulted in a rapid decrease in the urinary bacterial cell count, coupled with a dramatic increase in urinary amoxycillin concentrations.

This open, randomized, multicenter study compared the clinical efficacy of a short 5-day course of cefuroxime axetil (CAE) suspension with that of amoxicillin/clavulanate (A/CA) suspension for 8 or 10 days.

There was no statistically significant difference in overall microbiology between patients with less severe and more severe clinical presentations. Typical ABECB pathogens (Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catarrhalis) were found in 46.2% (147/318) of patients with less severe presentations and 41.9% (143/341) of patients with more severe presentations. Gram-negative organisms and Staphylococcus aureus were also found in both groups. Pneumococcal susceptibilities to the three antibiotics utilized in the trial revealed marked resistance to azithromycin. Limitations of this analysis include that the clinical trial was designed to examine clinical outcomes rather than microbiology, and that we do not correlate study entry microbiology with clinical outcomes.

In a randomized study, 42 patients undergoing extensive maxillo-facial surgery (correction of the position of the mandible or maxilla by using autologous bone transplants) received prophylactically ten-day courses of either flucloxacillin or amoxicillin with clavulanic acid. Patients were comparable with regard to age and type of surgery. During the prophylactic treatment the effect of antibiotics used on the microbial flora of the alimentary tract was studied. Patients receiving flucloxacillin showed increased numbers of Klebsiella spp. isolated from the faeces (59% of the patients versus 19% of the patients receiving amoxicillin with clavulanic acid). Patients receiving amoxicillin with clavulanic acid showed higher colonization rates of oropharynx with Enterobacteriaceae than patients receiving flucloxacillin (ten patients versus five patients). 60% of those strains isolated from patients receiving amoxicillin with clavulanic acid were resistant to this combination, as compared to 20% of gram-negative bacilli isolated from patients receiving flucloxacillin. In 50% of patients receiving amoxicillin with clavulanic acid, colonization of the gut with yeast occurred, as compared to 18% of patients receiving flucloxacillin. Only one infection leading to a partial loss of the graft was seen in the group of patients receiving flucloxacillin.

A total of 1912 children were enrolled from seven studies. Data interpretation was limited by the inability to extract data that referred to children with M. pneumoniae. In most studies, clinical response did not differ between children randomised to a macrolide antibiotic and children randomised to a non-macrolide antibiotic. In one controlled study (of children with recurrent respiratory infections, whose acute LRTI was associated with Mycoplasma, Chlamydia or both by polymerase chain reaction, and/or paired sera) 100% of children treated with azithromycin had clinical resolution of their illness compared to 77% not treated with azithromycin at one month.

Infectious diseases transmitted by actinomycosis species cause severe destructive lesions. This rare and specific infection is mainly found in the orofacial regions. Causes of any hard tissue swelling in the jaw have, thus, to be assessed carefully. When actinomycosis is identified, a surgical intervention with curettement, draining and long-term antibiosis is required. The aim of the current article is to describe two clinical cases and to show the necessity of both, microbiological and histological laboratory diagnostics, to hedge the clinic diagnosis.
