Fecal transplantation by colonoscopy (or enema, if colonoscopy is unavailable) is cost-effective for treating recurrent CDI in Canada. Where fecal transplantation is not available, fidaxomicin is also cost-effective.

Dental implants provide support for dental crowns and bridges by serving as abutments for the replacement of missing teeth. To prevent bacterial accumulation and growth at the site of implantation, solutions such as systemic antibiotics and localized delivery of bactericidal agents are often employed. The objective of this study was to demonstrate a novel method of controlled localized delivery of antibacterial agents to an implant site using a biodegradable custom fabricated ring.

The incidence of beta-lactamase production in anaerobic gram-negative rods isolated from 93 pus specimens of orofacial odontogenic infections and the antimicrobial susceptibility of these isolates against 11 antibiotics were determined. A total of 191 anaerobic gram-negative rods were isolated from the specimens. Beta-lactamase was detected in 35.6% of the black-pigmented Prevotella and 31.9% of the nonpigmented Prevotella. However, no strains among the other species isolated produced beta-lactamase. Ampicillin, cefazolin and cefotaxime showed decreased activity as regards beta-lactamase-positive Prevotella strains, whereas the activity of ampicillin/sulbactam, cefmetazole, and imipenem continued to be effective against such strains. All tested beta-lactam antibiotics were effective against Porphyromonas and Fusobacterium. Erythromycin showed decreased activity against nonpigmented Prevotella and Fusobacterium. Clindamycin, minocycline and metronidazole were powerful antibiotics against which anaerobic gram-negative rods could be tested. The present study showed that beta-lactamase-positive strains were found more frequently in the Prevotella strains than in any of the other species of anaerobic gram-negative rods. The effectiveness of adding sulbactam to ampicillin was demonstrated, as well as the difference in cephalosporin activity against beta-lactamase-positive strains.

A 4-year-old boy had surgical debulking of a cerebral astrocytoma followed by chemotherapy. He developed a subdural empyema with a teicoplanin and methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus. He was successfully treated with surgical drainage and 6 weeks of antibiotic therapy which included linezolid, rifampicin and metronidazole. Linezolid may be successful in treating other CNS infections caused by antibiotic resistant gram-positive organisms.

One hundred and ten patients suffering from intestinal perforation (abdominal closed injury), who had been treated with opened surgical repair or partial intestinal resection, were enrolled in this study. In the study group, Dermacyn was used for peritoneal lavage. During the same period, 102 patients with intestinal perforation of abdominal closed injury and opened repair or partial intestinal resection were enrolled as a control group. For the control group, metronidazole physiological saline was used for peritoneal lavage. Patients from both groups had a postoperative indwelling peritoneal drainage tube. Five objective indicators were studied and compared at 24, 48, and 72 hours: volume of drainage, drainage fluid culture, blood routine test, C-reactive protein, calcitonin and antibiotics dose.
There is controversy as to whether Helicobacter pylori and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs interact to cause peptic ulcers.

Treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis with FRP alone or FRP combined with systemic antibiotics provided significant clinical benefits that reduced the need for periodontal surgery. Both antibiotic treatments had additional clinical benefits over those of FRP alone.

The predominant bacteria were viridans group streptococci (VGS), staphylococci, Prevotella, Peptostreptococcus, and Bacteroides. In the aerobic spectrum, resistance against clindamycin was found in 18%, against macrolides in 14%, and against penicillin G in 7%. The anaerobes were resistant to clindamycin in 11%, to metronidazole in 6%, and to penicillin G in 8%.
