The consequences of prematurity continue to result in neonatal morbidity and mortality. One of the causes of prematurity is preterm prelabour rupture of membranes in which there is evidence that subclinical infection plays a role.
Clean catch midstream urine samples were tested for urinalysis (UA) and culture and sensitivity.

There were 82 patients (57 bacteremic and 25 non-bacteremic). In seven non-bacteremic cases, another etiology was detected, i.e., Legionella (n=1) and Chlamydia pneumoniae (n=6). Bacteremic patients were significantly younger (p=<0.001), more likely to have liver disease (p=0.028), current smokers (p=0.024), alcohol and intravenous drug abusers (p=0.014 and p<0.001, respectively), and infected with HIV (p<0.001). Non-bacteremic patients were more likely to have congestive heart failure (p=0.004), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (p=0.033) and to be former smokers (p=0.004). Bacteremic cases needed more prolonged intravenous antibiotic treatment (6 days vs. 4.5 days; p=0.006) than non-bacteremic cases and their length of stay was also longer.

A retrospective, single-institution chart review study from August 2008 to March 2009 was conducted. Adult patients seen in the ED with UTI were identified for study inclusion from review of microbiology records. Hospitalized or asymptomatic bacteriuria cases were excluded. Health care-associated (HA)-UTI was defined as UTI with indwelling urinary catheters, health care exposure, or urologic procedures within 3 months. Prevalence of causative bacteria, antibiotic resistance rates, and risk factors for quinolone resistance were determined.
Proteus mirabilis strain MAG1, a clinical isolate that is resistant to broad-spectrum penicillins and co-amoxiclav, produces inhibitor-resistant TEM (IRT)-21, a novel mutant of TEM beta-lactamase. This enzyme has a pI of 5.2 and is derived from the bla(TEM-1a) gene ancestor. It contains two major amino acid substitutions specific for co-amoxiclav resistance (Leu-69 for Met and Ser-244 for Arg) that have never been found together previously. The dramatic loss of sensitivity to clavulanic acid, the enhancement of K(m) for all beta-lactams and markedly for ticarcillin, and the decrease in the catalytic efficiency makes IRT-21 comparable to the other IRTs with substitutions at position 244 or double substitutions.

Cefaclor and amoxycillin/clavulanate are active against Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Moraxella catarrhalis and Staphylococcus aureus--pathogens commonly associated with acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis (AECB). This randomised, parallel-group, single-blind, multicentre study investigated the comparative efficacy and safety of 7-day treatment regimens of cefaclor AF (750 mg b.d. [n = 73]) and amoxycillin/clavulanate (875/125 mg b.d. [n = 72]) in AECB. A favourable clinical response was obtained in 95.9% of patients on cefaclor AF and 97.2% of patients on amoxycillin/clavulanate. There were no statistically significant differences between the groups for improvement in clinical response measured by pulmonary peak expiratory flow (PPEF), or for common symptoms associated with AECB. Both agents were well tolerated, with no statistically significant differences in overall safety; however, nausea and vomiting, and abdominal pain, the most frequently occurring adverse events in the amoxycillin/clavulanate group, were not reported in the cefaclor group. In conclusion, cefaclor AF and amoxycillin/clavulanate have similar efficacy and safety profiles in the treatment of AECB.
according to personal history: 70% of reactions were late in developing while 23% of reactions were immediate and for 5% of the cases it was not possible to define the timing. 8 children (8/89=9%) resulted positive to the provocation tests with amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid; ten children (10/89=11%) had positive results with sodium benzoate; 3% had a double positivity (i.e. excipient and active drug). The timing of reactions significantly differs between the Amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid and sodium benzoate groups (p=0.002).

Subgingival plaque samples from patients with periodontitis were collected and cultured on selective and nonselective culture media. The antimicrobial susceptibility of periodontopathogenic isolates was studied in chronic periodontitis patients in Colombia. Metronidazole, amoxicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, clindamycin and moxifloxacin were tested on all bacterial isolates and the percentage of resistant strains was calculated.
In a controlled, multicenter, investigator-blinded study, 437 ambulatory patients at least 12 years old with signs/symptoms and radiographic findings of acute sinusitis were randomized to receive clarithromycin ER 1000 mg once daily or amoxicillin/ clavulanate 875 mg/l25 mg twice daily for 14 days.
