The combination of amoxicillin and potassium clavulanate will soon be marketed in 2:1 and 4:1 fixed ratio dosage forms. In vitro and in vivo evidence suggests that clavulanic acid, a potent inhibitor of many bacterial beta-lactamase enzymes, will increase the spectrum of amoxicillin to include, at achievable serum concentrations, Haemophilus influenzae, H. ducreyi, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Staphylococcus aureus and Branhamella catarralis and, at achievable urine levels, many beta-lactamase-producing strains of E. coli, Klebsiella, Proteus and Citrobacter. Both amoxicillin and clavulanic are well absorbed after oral administration, reach peak serum levels in 40-120 min and have similar half-lives of 45 to 90 min. This combination will be suitable for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections, otitis media, sinusitis and respiratory tract infections. However, precise recommendations for its use will need to await further clinical trials that compare amoxicillin/clavulanate to alternative therapies.

Comparative in vitro activity of sparfloxacin was determined by the broth dilution method against 104 clinical isolates of Salmonella typhi. All of the isolates were inhibited by < or = 0.12 mg/l of this fluoroquinolone. Its inhibitory activity was slightly superior or comparable to that of other fluoroquinolones tested, namely ciprofloxain and norfloxain, and significantly greater than the conventional drugs, such as amikacin, ampicillin, Augmentin, ceftazidime, clindamycin, tetracycline and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, used in the treatment of typhoid fever.
Current course of IE dictates the necessity of fighting resistant microflora especially in case of nosocomial disease. Recurrences become more frequent. Indications to surgery did not change for the last decade. The best treatment results are achieved after antibacterial treatment of the valve.

Idiopathic intussusception is a leading cause of intestinal obstruction in young children. Although the etiology remains obscure, lymphoid hyperplasia is found in a majority of cases. Antibiotics, the most frequently prescribed medication class in the pediatric population, have been recently associated with intussusception. The authors sought to determine whether enteral antibiotic exposure influences the development of mesenteric adenopathy, bowel dilation or intussusception in an animal model.

One hundred and three cats presenting with clinical signs of feline acute upper respiratory infection were selected from Belgium, France and the Netherlands in a randomised comparative field trial. Each cat underwent a bacteriological examination before treatment (day 0) and received either marbofloxacin, at a dosage of 2 mg/kg once daily for five days, or amoxycillin-clavulanic acid (ACA) at a dosage of 12.5 mg/kg twice daily for five days. Clinical examinations were performed on days 2, 5 and 14. Pasteurella species were cultured in one-third of the samples. The other main bacteria isolated were Streptococcaceae, Enterobacteriaceae and Staphylococcaceae. Response rates (cures + improvements) to treatment on day 5 were 87.8 vs 77.8 per cent for marbofloxacin and ACA, respectively. A few mild side-effects (diarrhoea, vomiting) were recorded with both drugs.

In this open label multicenter study, 521 infants and children with AOM [mean age, 18.6 months; age < 24 months, n = 375 (72%)] were treated with amoxicillin/clavulanate 90/6.4 mg/kg/day in two divided doses for 10 days. Bilateral otitis media, previous episodes of AOM, antibiotic treatment within 3 months and day-care attendance were recorded in 60.1, 35.7, 50.2 and 38.2% of the children, respectively. Tympanocentesis was performed before the first dose and repeated on Days 4 to 6 for all children with S. pneumoniae at 22 centers and for all children with any pathogen at 3 centers. Clinical response was assessed at end of therapy.

The number of responders and nonresponders was similar in the antimicrobial- and nonantimicrobial-treated groups (p = NS), and no single antimicrobial medication demonstrated greater treatment effectiveness.

We conducted a systematic review and aimed to answer the following clinical questions: What are the effects of treatments in people with clinically diagnosed acute sinusitis, and with radiologically or bacteriologically confirmed acute sinusitis? We searched: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library and other important databases up to August 2007 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically; please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review). We included harms alerts from relevant organisations such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

30 patients with recurrent tonsillitis were treated with amoxycillin/clavulanic acid (500 mg/125 mg) t.i.d. for 10 days. The most often isolated potential aerobic pathogenic bacteria were Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus milleri and Haemophilus parainfluenzae. Group A streptococci were isolated from 7 patients. Anaerobic cocci and Bacteroides species were the dominating anaerobic bacteria isolated from the tonsils. Tonsillar cultures were taken before antibiotic treatment started, on days 11-12, day 30, and day 90. Beta-lactamase producing aerobic and anaerobic bacteria were present in 13 patients prior to treatment, on days 11-12 in 18 patients, on day 30 in 15 patients, and on day 90 in 13 patients. Group A streptococci were eradicated in 6/7 patients. In the aerobic tonsillar microflora, the numbers of viridans streptococci decreased during treatment but were normalized after 30 days. Only minor changes in the numbers of other aerobic microorganisms occurred during the investigation. The effect on the anaerobic microflora was minor and no new colonizing microorganisms were isolated during or after antibiotic treatment. All patients except one were cured on days 11-12. Five patients had another episode of tonsillitis during the observation period of 3 months. The antibiotic treatment was well tolerated in most patients and mild adverse events such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea were observed in 3 patients.
Subacute childhood rhinosinusitis is a disorder commonly seen in children with allergic rhinitis. Antibiotics have been recommended as a major component of the treatment regime. The objective of the present study was to compare the effectiveness of a 3-day course of azithromycin and a 2-week course of amoxycillin/clavulanate in the treatment of subacute childhood rhinosinusitis.
