The optimal duration of antibiotic treatment for acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) is unknown. This study compared the outcome of treatment for 3 vs. 10 days with amoxycillin-clavulanic acid of hospitalised patients with AECOPD who had improved substantially after initial therapy for 3 days. Between November 2000 and December 2003, 56 patients with AECOPD were enrolled in the study. Unfortunately, because of the low inclusion rate, the trial was discontinued prematurely. Patients were treated with oral or intravenous amoxycillin-clavulanic acid. Patients who showed improvement after 72 h were randomised to receive oral amoxycillin-clavulanic acid 625 mg or placebo, four times daily for 7 days. The primary outcome measure of the study was clinical cure after 3 weeks and 3 months. Of 46 patients included in the final analysis, 21 were in the 3-day treatment group and 25 were in the 10-day treatment group. After 3 weeks, 16 (76%) of 21 patients in the 3-day treatment group were cured, compared with 20 (80%) of 25 in the 10-day treatment group (difference -3.8%; 95% CI -28 to 20). After 3 months, 13 (62%) of 21 patients were cured, compared with 14 (56%) of 25 (difference 5.9%; 95% CI -23 to 34). Microbiological success, symptom recovery, the use of corticosteroids, the duration of oxygen therapy and the length of hospital stay were comparable for both treatment groups. It was concluded that 3-day treatment with amoxycillin-clavulanic acid can be a safe and effective alternative to the standard 10-day treatment for hospitalised patients with AECOPD who have improved after initial therapy for 3 days.

The aim of present work was to characterize the inhibitor-resistant TEM (IRT) β-lactamases produced by Escherichia coli in Hospital Clínico San Carlos (Madrid, Spain). Mechanisms of fluoroquinolone resistance among IRT-producing strains were also studied. Isolates with susceptibility to cephalosporins and amoxicillin-clavulanate (AMC) resistance were collected in our hospital (November 2011-July 2012) from both outpatients and hospitalized patients. Among 70 AMC-resistant E. coli strains, 28 (40%) produced IRT enzymes. Most of them were uropathogens (82.1%) and recovered from outpatients (75%). Seven different IRT enzymes were identified with TEM-30 (IRT-2) being the most prevalent, followed by TEM-40 (IRT-11). A high rate of ciprofloxacin resistance was found among IRT-producing strains (50%). Most of the ciprofloxacin-resistant isolates showed ciprofloxacin minimum inhibitory concentration >32 mg/L and contained two mutations in both gyrA and parC genes. Four IRT enzyme producers harbored the qnr gene. ST131 clone was mainly responsible for both IRT enzyme production and ciprofloxacin resistance. In conclusion, data from this study show that the frequency of IRT producers was 40% and a high rate of ciprofloxacin resistance was found among IRT-producing isolates. Current and future actions should be taken into account to avoid or reduce the development of AMC and fluoroquinolone resistance in E. coli.

Fire breathers must be viewed as a population at risk of paraffin-induced lipoid pneumonia.
Analysis showed that the hospital incidence of ESBLs had a positive relationship with the use of fluoroquinolones in the hospital (coefficient = 0.174, P= 0.02), amoxicillin-clavulanic acid in the community (coefficient = 1.03, P= 0.03) and mean co-morbidity scores for hospitalized patients (coefficient = 2.15, P= 0.03) with various time lags. The fluoroquinolone restriction policy was implemented successfully with the mean use of fluoroquinolones (mainly ciprofloxacin) being reduced from 133 to 17 defined daily doses (DDDs)/1000 bed days (P < 0.001) and from 0.65 to 0.54 DDDs/1000 inhabitants/day (P= 0.0007), in both the hospital and its surrounding community, respectively. This was associated with an improved ciprofloxacin susceptibility in both settings [ciprofloxacin susceptibility being improved from 16% to 28% in the community (P < 0.001)] and with a statistically significant reduction in ESBL-producing bacteria incidence rates.

The objective of this report was to document the pattern of initial antibiotic prescribing in acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in a hospital setting. All episodes of acute exacerbation of COPD, as diagnosed by the admitting doctor, in one hospital in the period January to May 1996, were identified. Case notes were reviewed retrospectively. Cases of radiographic pneumonia, bronchiectasis and incorrectly coded admissions were excluded. Symptoms, microbial cultures and initial antibiotic therapies were recorded. One hundred and fifty-nine patient episodes were identified; 40 were excluded yielding a sample of 119. Nineteen case notes were unavailable leaving a sample of 100 (84%) episodes. Eighty were treated with antibiotics on admission; amoxycillin was the most frequently prescribed, in 46 (58%) episodes. Of the antibiotic treated group, 42 (53%) patients were given dual therapy, most commonly a macrolide antibiotic with either amoxycillin or a cephalosporin. Intravenous treatment was used in 22 (28%) cases. The duration of intravenous treatment was >48 h in 12 (15%) cases. A total of 76 sputum samples were analysed from 55 patient episodes: 34 (45%) were culture positive. In 15 (27%) patient episodes, antibiotic therapy was changed or instituted on the basis of culture results. These data suggest that antibiotic treatment is not optimal, with overuse of antibiotics, especially intravenous and dual therapy.

Haemophilus influenzae frequently colonizes the nasopharynx of children and adults, which can lead to a variety of infections. We investigated H. influenzae carriage in the nasopharynx of 360 children, in terms of (1) the prevalence of strains with decreased susceptibility, and (2) the presence of amino acid substitutions in PBP3. One hundred twenty-three strains were isolated (34.2%, 123/360), 122 of which were classified as nontypable H. influenzae (NTHi). Of these, β-lactamase-nonproducing ampicillin-susceptible strains accounted for 26.2%, β-lactamase-producing-ampicillin-resistant strains for 9.0%, β-lactamase-nonproducing ampicillin-resistant (BLNAR) strains for 40.2%, and β-lactamase-producing amoxicillin-/clavulanic acid-resistant (BLPACR) for 24.6%, respectively. Pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) patterns were so diverse that they were clustered into 41 groups. The amino acid substitutions in the transpeptidase domain (292 amino acids) of ftsI in BLNAR isolates showed that group IIb accounted for 30.6%, IIc for 8.2%, IId for 16.3%, III for 32.7%, and the others for 12.2%. Moreover, groups IIb (56.7%; 17/30) and III (23.3%; 7/30) were prevalent among BLPACR strains. They were subclassified into more diverse sequence subtypes by analysis of the entire PBP3 (610 amino acids). Groups IIb, IIc, IId, and III exhibited 13, four, six, and four sequence subtypes, respectively. Such a genetic diversity is likely indicative of significant potential for decreased antimicrobial susceptibility in nasopharyngeal-colonizing NTHi strains.

The study enrolled 142 pediatric patients: 70 in the cefditoren group (42 males, 28 females; median age, 7.15 years) and 72 in the amoxicillin/clavulanate group (37 males, 35 females; median age, 6.60 years). Four patients in the cefditoren group were excluded from the study analyses (2 who were noncompliant [used <80% of the assigned medication] and 2 who developed infection at other sites). There were no significant differences in baseline medical history or signs and symptoms between the 2 groups. Rates of improvement at day 14 in the cefditoren and amoxicillin/clavulanate groups were 78.8% (52/66) and 84.7% (61/72), respectively (P = NS). There was no significant difference in the change in S5 scores between groups at day 14. The median time to improvement was 3.0 days in both groups. There were no significant differences between groups in rates of relapse (9.1% and 11.1%) or recurrence (3.0% and 5.6%) of sinus symptoms. The most common adverse event in both groups was diarrhea, occurring in 4.5% of the cefditoren group and 18.1 % of the amoxicillin/clavulanate group (P = 0.02).

Since April 1994 to August 2004, 461 out of 570 submitted cases, involving 505 drugs, were deemed to be related to DILI. The antiinfective group of drugs was the more frequently incriminated, amoxicillin-clavulanate accounting for the 12.8% of the whole series. The hepatocellular pattern of damage was the most common (58%), was inversely correlated with age (P < .0001), and had the worst outcome (Cox regression, P < .034). Indeed, the incidence of liver transplantation and death in this group was 11.7% if patients had jaundice at presentation, whereas the corresponding figure was 3.8% in nonjaundiced patients (P < .04). Factors associated with the development of fulminant hepatic failure were female sex (OR = 25; 95% CI: 4.1-151; P < .0001), hepatocellular damage (OR = 7.9; 95% CI: 1.6-37; P < .009), and higher baseline plasma bilirubin value (OR = 1.15; 95% CI: 1.09-1.22; P < .0001).

In a randomized clinical study, 141 patients who had to undergo operations on the aorta or the main arteries received either amoxycillin/clavulanate or cefoxitin perioperatively for prophylaxis. As no wound infection occurred amoxycillin/clavulanate and cefoxitin were found to be equal in effectiveness.
