The efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) ertapenem, 1 and 1.5 g once a day, for treatment of adults with complicated intra-abdominal infection were compared with those of IV ceftriaxone 2 g once a day plus IV metronidazole 500 mg every 8 h. After at least 3 days of IV therapy and satisfactory clinical response, patients could be switched to oral ciprofloxacin plus metronidazole. Fifty-nine patients were randomized to receive ertapenem 1 g and 51 to receive ertapenem 1.5 g; 55 patients were randomized to each comparator group. At the test of cure, 4-6 weeks post therapy, in the 1 g cohort, 84% (26/31) of patients treated with ertapenem and 85% (35/41) with comparator therapy had a favourable clinical and microbiological assessment. Success rates in the 1.5 g cohort were 83% (22/29) and 77% (24/31) in the ertapenem and comparator groups, respectively. Drug-related adverse events were generally similar in both treatment groups. Ertapenem 1 or 1.5 g once a day followed by optional oral therapy appeared similar to combined therapy with ceftriaxone plus metronidazole with the same optional oral switch for treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infections in adults. Although not compared directly in a randomized fashion, the efficacy and safety profiles of ertapenem 1 and 1.5 g appeared comparable. Ertapenem was generally well tolerated and had an overall safety profile similar to ceftriaxone plus metronidazole.

Systemic antibiotic administration transiently increased the percentage of resistant subgingival species, but a major component of subgingival plaque remained sensitive to the agents during their administration. Antibiotic-resistant isolates of resistant species could be detected in samples both prior to and after therapy. However, % antibiotic-resistant isolates returned to baseline levels 90 days after antibiotic administration.

Forty-four patients with seborrheic dermatitis were enrolled in the study. All topical treatments were stopped for at least 2 weeks before the patients were allocated at random to receive either metronidazole 1% gel or placebo for 8 weeks. The severity score was measured at the initial evaluation, and the patients were followed up at 2-week intervals for 8 weeks. A global evaluation of improvement was done at 8 weeks.
This is a retrospective cohort study performed within the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative (MSQC), an organization of hospitals that prospectively collects patient data, processes of care, and 30-day outcomes. Patients undergoing colectomy surgery (n = 4331) were studied. Factors potentially associated with SSI were tested using univariate statistical tests, and a hierarchical generalized linear model was created to test for independent associations between processes of care and SSI, while adjusting for patient risk factors and clustering of patients within hospitals.

Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is associated with gut barrier dysfunction. We examined effects of dietary glutamine (GLN) or oral antibiotics (ABX) on indexes of gut barrier function in a rat model of SBS. Adult rats underwent a 60% distal small bowel + proximal colonic resection (RX) or bowel transection (TX; control). Rats were pair fed diets with or without l-GLN for 20 days after operation. Oral ABX (neomycin, metronidazole, and polymyxin B) were given in some RX rats fed control diet. Stool secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) was measured serially. On day 21, mesenteric lymph nodes (MLN) were cultured for gram-negative bacteria. IgA-positive plasma cells in jejunum, stool levels of flagellin- and lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-specific sIgA, and serum total, anti-flagellin- and anti-LPS IgG levels were determined. RX caused gram-negative bacterial translocation to MLN, increased serum total and anti-LPS IgG and increased stool total sIgA. After RX, dietary GLN tended to blunt bacterial translocation to MLN (-29%, P = NS) and significantly decreased anti-LPS IgG levels in serum, increased both stool and jejunal mucosal sIgA and increased stool anti-LPS-specific IgA. Oral ABX eliminated RX-induced bacterial translocation, significantly decreased total and anti-LPS IgG levels in serum, significantly decreased stool total IgA and increased stool LPS-specific IgA. Partial small bowel-colonic resection in rats is associated with gram-negative bacterial translocation from the gut and a concomitant adaptive immune response to LPS. These indexes of gut barrier dysfunction are ameliorated or blunted by administration of dietary GLN or oral ABX, respectively. Dietary GLN upregulates small bowel sIgA in this model.

We recommend the administration of pre-operative single dose antibiotic prophylaxis for emergency caesarean as this intervention proved to be not equivalent to multiple doses antibiotic prophylaxis in reducing surgical site infection. Single dose therapy also reduces staff workload along with medication costs.

Much has been published on the efficacy and cost effectiveness of Helicobacter pylori eradication treatment as an alternative to histamine H2-receptor antagonist maintenance treatment in peptic ulcer disease. However, most studies have analysed and emphasised H. pylori eradication rates rather than management/control of symptoms and the associated cost savings. Although H. pylori eradication therapy is very successful in clearing the infection, dyspeptic symptoms may persist and management of these can be expensive.
