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.

Thirty-two patients with skin infections were treated with Augmentin, a combination of amoxycillin with the beta-lactamase inhibitor clavulanic acid. These infections were primary skin sepsis (7), infected eczema (11), infected trauma (10) and leg ulcers (4). The majority of cases were caused by amoxycillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus either alone or in combination with Streptococcus pyogenes. Thirty patients (94%) responded to treatment with only one withdrawal (for side effects). Side effects were limited to nausea (9%) diarrhoea (9%) and rash (3%). No patient with diarrhoea showed evidence of Clostridium difficile toxin production in the stools. Augmentin appears to be a safe, useful, effective antibiotic for the treatment of skin infections in general practice and in hospital. It may prove of particular value when mixed infections of penicillin-resistant staphylococci and Streptococcus pyogenes are present.

ABS is a common complication of viral upper respiratory infections. Amoxicillin/potassium clavulanate results in significantly more cures and fewer failures than placebo, according to parental report of time to resolution of clinical symptoms.
Pharmacokinetically enhanced co-amoxiclav 2000/125 mg was designed to achieve high serum concentrations of amoxicillin over the 12 h dosing interval to eradicate Streptococcus pneumoniae with amoxicillin MICs of at least 4 mg/L.

This randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, multicentre study compared the efficacy and safety of oral co-amoxiclav 2000/125 mg twice daily versus co-amoxiclav 875/125 mg three times daily, for 7 or 10 days, in the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP).
In summary, several errors occurred with this patient. One, the patient should have been treated prophylactically for P. multocida, as most cat bites become infected. In the patient not allergic to penicillin, augmentin is the drug of choice, not erythromycin. Two, rabies postexposure prophylaxis should have been advised immediately after assessing the significance of the exposure. A feral cat must be assumed to be rabid if it cannot be quarantined for 10 days. Therefore, the bite or scratch from such an animal constitutes a significant rabies exposure. Three, initial postexposure rabies prophylaxis must include both HRIG and the first of a series of either HDCV, RVA, or PCEC.
Median plasma and tissue amoxicillin concentrations were respectively 4.7 microg/ml (IQR 2.1-8.0; min-max 0.4-14.3) and 1.1 microg/g (IQR 0.4-2.1; min-max 0.4-12.9), considerably below the selected target MIC of pathogens involved in the upper respiratory tract infections (S. aureus, H. influenzae, M. catarrhalis). 20 Children showed undetectable amoxicillin levels in one or both tonsils. Interestingly, 7 out of these patients (35%) had plasma concentrations higher than the target MIC (8 microg/ml). No patient displayed plasma concentrations under the limit of sensitivity of the method. Poor core-plasma and left-right core correlation was observed among patients, suggesting that fibrosis developed after recurrent tonsillitis may hamper antibiotic penetration.

The main indications for PEG insertions are the following: stroke/CVA/diffuse cerebral vascular disease, neurological conditions, e.g. head injury, motor neurone disease, Multiple Sclerosis etc. Peristomal infection can sometimes complicate PEG placement. Antibiotics, either prophylaxis or concurrent, can reduce the incidence of peristomal wound infection after PEG placement.
