During January-April 2002, Salmonella serotype Newport was isolated from 47 persons in five states: New York (34 cases), Michigan (five), Pennsylvania (four), Ohio (two), and Connecticut (two). Antimicrobial-susceptibility testing of three isolates by CDC revealed resistance to amoxicillin/clavulanate, ampicillin, cefoxitin, ceftiofur, cephalothin, chloramphenicol, streptomycin, sulfamethoxazole, and tetracycline. In addition, two of three isolates were resistant to kanamycin; two had decreased susceptibility or resistance to ceftriaxone. To determine the cause of the outbreak, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and CDC conducted a case-control study. This report summarizes the results of this investigation, which implicated exposure to raw or undercooked ground beef as the vehicle of transmission. The findings also highlight the emergence of multidrug-resistant S. Newport in the United States. These strains exhibit decreased susceptibility or resistance to ceftriaxone, thereby complicating empiric therapy for serious Salmonella infections. Clinicians should be informed of the emergence of these S. Newport strains, and persons should refrain from eating undercooked ground beef and wash their hands after handling raw ground beef.

We present a case of a 54 years old female patient after anterior wall left ventricular myocardial infarction in 2005 who underwent coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery requiring cannulation of the right internal jugular vein (IJV). She was admitted to a Department of Pulmonary Diseases with left bronchopneumonia (BPN) following 7 day treatment, with hemoptysis, dyspnoea and fevers. Duplex ultrasound (DUS) was used to diagnose flapping thrombus in the right IJV, severe thrombocytopenia and, in addition, progressing multiple infiltrates on X-ray a few days later. We empirically adjusted the treatment initiated in primary care and observed deterioration of the severe thrombocytopenia during treatment with low molecular weight heparine. We diagnosed heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) and, even though this indication was not included in our drug formulary, we initiated treatment with Arixtra (fondaparinux) 2.5 mg s.c. daily. Intensive conservative treatment was associated with significant clinical and laboratory improvement of the condition, significant regression of the IJV thrombus as well as the finding on X-ray. The final effective antibiotic treatment lasted 20 (amoxicillin + clavulanate) and 10 (clindamycin) days, respectively. Treatment with Arixtra (fondaparinux) continued in primary care and lasted a total of 65 days until normal thrombocyte levels were achieved, with gradual transition to oral anticoagulation treatment. The patient was discharged to primary care on the 23rd day of hospitalization when she was stabilized, a febrile and her cardiopulmonary functions were compensated. We did not identify any case of treatment of jugular thrombosis and concurrent HIT with fondaparin anywhere in the international literature.

There is unclear evidence that azithromycin is superior to amoxycillin or amoxyclav in treating acute LRTI. In patients with acute bronchitis of a suspected bacterial cause, azithromycin tends to be more effective in terms of lower incidence of treatment failure and adverse events than amoxycillin or amoxyclav. However, most studies were of unclear methodological quality and had small sample sizes; future trials of high methodological quality and adequate sizes are needed.

None of the strains were resistant to tetracycline. Resistance to metronidazole (8 microg/mL), clarithromycin (1 microg/mL) and amoxicillin (8 microg/mL) was found in 51.9%, 13.5% and 36.1% of the isolates, respectively. Metronidazole-resistant strains were isolated more frequently from women (49/78; 62.8%) than from men (20/55; 36.4%). Resistance to at least two antimicrobial agents was detected in 33.8% of the isolates. There was a high rate of resistance to both metronidazole and amoxicillin (18.1%).

Faropenem was found to have good antimicrobial action against H. pylori in vitro. The 14-day LAF therapy successfully eradicated H. pylori in about two-thirds of the patients although the incidence of adverse events was high.
This French multicentric prospective study enrolled 143 children with AOM treatment failure between 2007 and 2009 observed by 8 ear, nose, and throat specialists. Failure was defined as the persistence of AOM symptoms after at least 48 hours of antibiotic therapy or their recurrence within 4 days after the end of treatment. Standardized history and physical examination findings were recorded, and culture of middle ear fluid (MEF) was obtained.
Acute otitis media is very common, but diagnostic criteria and treatment recommendations vary considerably.

For this multicentre, open-label, randomised trial, we recruited patients (≥20 years of age) with H pylori infection from six centres in Taiwan. Using a computer-generated randomisation sequence, we randomly allocated patients (1:1:1; block sizes of six) to either sequential treatment (lansoprazole 30 mg and amoxicillin 1 g for the first 7 days, followed by lansoprazole 30 mg, clarithromycin 500 mg, and metronidazole 500 mg for another 7 days; with all drugs given twice daily) for either 10 days (S-10) or 14 days (S-14), of 14 days of triple therapy (T-14; lansoprazole 30 mg, amoxicillin 1 g, and clarithromycin 500 mg for 14 days; with all drugs given twice daily). Investigators were masked to treatment allocation. Our primary outcome was the eradication rate in first-line treatment by intention-to-treat (ITT) and per-protocol (PP) analyses. This trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT01042184.

(1) The patients (17 boys and 14 girls) were 6 months to 3 years old. The main complaint was chronic wet cough (>4 weeks); 13 cases had fever and 25 cases had wheezing. Rattle was heard on auscultation in all patients. (2) Chest X ray showed an increase in bronchovascular markings in all cases, accompanied by patchy infiltration in 6 cases. The high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) demonstrated bronchial wall thickening in 25 cases, associated with peri-bronchial patchy infiltration in 18 cases, with organized pneumonia in 7 cases ( atelectasis in 5 cases). Centrilobular nodules and ground-glass opacity were observed in the remaining 6 patients. (3) Purulent secretion was seen in endobronchial cavity by bronchoscopy. Streptococcus pneumoniae was isolated from sputum culture or bronchoalveolar lavage fluid culture in 16 patients. (4)Patients recovered completely after over 2 weeks'treatment with amoxicillin-clavulanate or the second and third generation cephalosporin (including enzyme inhibitors) in 28 cases, carbapenems, teicoplanin , linezolid in 1 case respectively.
