The recombinant B. burgdorferi Bgp and Pfs proteins were first used for the kinetic analysis of enzymatic activity with both substrates and with four inhibitors. We then determined the antispirochaetal activity of these compounds using a novel technique. The method involved detection of the live-dead B. burgdorferi by fluorometric analysis after staining with a fluorescent nucleic acids stain mixture containing Hoechst 33342 and Sytox Green.

A simple, robust LC-MS/MS assay for quantifying cefuroxime in human plasma was developed. Cefuroxime and tazobactam, as internal standard (IS), were extracted from human plasma by methanol to precipitate protein. Separation was achieved on a Zorbax SB-Aq (4.6 × 250 mm, 5  μ m) column under isocratic conditions. The calibration curve was linear in the concentration range of 0.0525-21.0  μ g/mL (r = 0.9998). The accuracy was higher than 90.92%, while the intra- and interday precision were less than 6.26%. The extraction procedure provides recovery ranged from 89.44% to 92.32%, for both analyte and IS. Finally, the method was successfully applied to a bioequivalence study of a single 500 mg dose of cefuroxime axetil in 22 healthy Chinese male subjects under fasting condition. Bioequivalence was determined by calculating 90% Cls for the ratios of C max, AUC0-t , and AUC0-∞ values for the test and reference products, using logarithmic transformed data. The 90% Cls for the ratios of C max (91.4%~104.2%), AUC0-t (97.4%~110.9%), and AUC0-∞ (97.6%~111.1%) values were within the predetermined range. It was concluded that the two formulations (test for capsule, reference for tablet) analyzed were bioequivalent in terms of rate and extent of absorption and the method met the principle of quick and easy clinical analysis.

Gatifloxacin is an 8-methoxy fluoroquinolone antibacterial agent. The drug has a broader spectrum of antibacterial activity than the older fluoroquinolones (e.g. ciprofloxacin) and shows good activity against many Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens, atypical organisms and some anaerobes. Notably, gatifloxacin is highly active against both penicillin-susceptible and -resistant strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae, a common causative pathogen in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), acute sinusitis and acute bacterial exacerbations of bronchitis. Gatifloxacin is absorbed well from the gastrointestinal tract (oral bioavailability is almost 100%). Therefore, patients can be switched from intravenous to oral therapy without an adjustment in dosage. High concentrations of gatifloxacin are achieved in plasma and target tissues/fluids. Gatifloxacin has a long plasma elimination half-life, thus allowing once-daily administration. Few clinically significant interactions between gatifloxacin and other drugs have been reported. In patients with CAP, clinical response rates in recipients of intravenous/oral gatifloxacin 400 mg/day ranged from 86.8 to 98.0% and rates of bacterial eradication ranged from 83.1 to 100% (up to 28 days post-treatment). Gatifloxacin showed efficacy similar to that of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, ceftriaxone (with or without erythromycin) with or without stepdown to clarithromycin, levofloxacin or clarithromycin. Gatifloxacin was as effective as clarithromycin or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, and was significantly more effective (in terms of clinical response; p < 0.035) than 7 to 10 days' treatment with cefuroxime axetil in the treatment of acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis. In acute sinusitis, gatifloxacin showed clinical efficacy similar to that of clarithromycin, trovafloxacin or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid. Genitourinary infections were also successfully treated with gatifloxacin. Gatifloxacin is generally well tolerated. Its tolerability profile was broadly similar to those of comparator agents in comparative trials. The most common adverse events are gastrointestinal symptoms (oral formulation) and injection site reactions.

An alternative method to h.p.l.c. for determining cefuroxime axetil esterase (CAE) activity has been developed which involves coupling acetaldehyde, produced in the esterase reaction, with alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) to provide a direct reading spectrophotometric assay. The optimum temperature and concn. of NADH, cefuroxime axetil and ADH for the assay are 37 degrees C, 160 microM, 2.9 mM and 160 U/ml, respectively. The coupled assay was more reproducible but less sensitive than the h.p.l.c. assay, and the two methods gave results that were not significantly different (P greater than 0.05). Both assays responded linearly when CAE activity was measured as a function of protein concn., however, the coupled assay was impaired at ionic strengths greater than 0.2 M NaCl, whereas no adverse effects were seen with the h.p.l.c. assay up to 0.5 M NaCl.

This double-masked, multicenter, randomized clinical trial compared the efficacy and tolerability of cefuroxime axetil and amoxicillin/clavulanate in the treatment of acute bacterial maxillary sinusitis. A total of 263 patients with acute bacterial maxillary sinusitis were randomly assigned to receive 10 days of treatment with either cefuroxime axetil 250 mg twice daily (n = 132) or amoxicillin/clavulanate 500/125 mg 3 times daily (n = 131). Patients' responses to treatment were assessed once during treatment (6 to 8 days after the start of treatment), at the end of treatment (1 to 3 days posttreatment), and at follow-up (26 to 30 days after cessation of treatment). Clinical success, defined as cure or improvement, was equivalent in the cefuroxime axetil and amoxicillin/ clavulanate groups at the end-of-treatment and follow-up assessments. Patients in both groups showed improvements in symptoms of acute sinusitis at the during-treatment visit. Treatment with amoxicillin/clavulanate was associated with a significantly higher incidence of drug-related adverse events than treatment with cefuroxime axetil (29% vs 17%), primarily reflecting a higher incidence of gastrointestinal adverse events (23% vs 11%), particularly diarrhea. Two patients in the cefuroxime axetil group and 8 patients in the amoxicillin/clavulanate group withdrew from the study due to adverse events (P = 0.06). These results indicate that cefuroxime axetil 250 mg twice daily is as effective as amoxicillin/clavulanate 500 mg 3 times daily in the treatment of acute sinusitis and produces fewer gastrointestinal adverse events. cefuroxime axetil, amoxicillin/clavulanate, acute sinusitis.

The 185 hospitalized patients (aged 19 to 95 years) with pneumonia were randomly assigned to receive 500 mg of cefuroxime axetil orally (250 mg q12h), 1,000 mg of cefuroxime axetil orally (500 mg q12h), or 1,500 mg of cefaclor orally (500 mg q8h), daily, for a mean of nine days. Among the 151 evaluable patients, clinical cure was noted in 58% of the 500-mg cefuroxime axetil group, 94% of the 1,000-mg cefuroxime axetil group, and 88% of the cefaclor group, and clinical improvement in 32%, 4%, and 9%. Bacteriologic outcome was similar in the three groups. Adverse events were minor and comparable among the treatment groups. Cefuroxime axetil is a safe and effective oral antimicrobial for the treatment of pneumonia in adults.

The direct compression suitability of active pharmaceutical ingredients could be studied by SeDeM diagram method. Cefuroxime axetil (CfA) and paracetamol (PCM) were employed for SeDeM studies as these powders are well-characterized and known to be particularly difficult with respect to flowability and compactibility. Twelve different selected pharmacotechnical parameters were determined experimentally and were treated mathematically for being expressed in graphic representation as SeDeM diagram. Parameter index, parameter profile index and good compression index were calculated for both the selected drugs. Good compression index was found to be 2.19 and 1.36 for CfA and PCM, respectively, indicating poor direct compression characteristics of the selected drugs. The results from this SeDeM diagram method are in line with the previously reported studies where it was established as a reliable method for preformulation studies and as a quality control tool for studying batch-to-batch reproducibility of API's. Furthermore, it once again established the notion that blending poorly compressible drugs with suitable ingredients followed by SeDeM studies could be used as method for identifying best excipient and calculating maximum amount of excipient required for direct compression of API.

The bacteriological and clinical efficacies of cefuroxime axetil suspension (20 mg/kg of body weight per day in two divided doses) were compared with those of penicillin V suspension (50 mg/kg/day in three divided doses) in a multicenter, randomized, evaluator-blinded study. Children aged 2 to 13 years with clinical signs and symptoms of acute pharyngitis and a positive throat culture for group A beta-hemolytic streptococci (GABHS) were eligible. Patients were assessed and samples from the throat for culture were obtained at the time of diagnosis, 3 to 7 days after the initiation of treatment, and 4 to 8 days and 19 to 25 days after the completion of 10 days of therapy. Of the 385 evaluable patients, GABHS were eradicated from 244 of 259 (94.2%) cefuroxime-treated patients and 106 of 126 (84.1%) penicillin-treated patients (P = 0.001). Complete resolution of the signs and symptoms present at the time of diagnosis was achieved in 238 of 259 (91.9%) cefuroxime-treated patients and 102 of 126 (81.0%) penicillin-treated patients (P = 0.001). Potential drug-related adverse events were reported in 7.0 and 3.2% of the cefuroxime- and penicillin-treated patients, respectively (P = 0.078). In the present study, cefuroxime axetil suspension given twice daily resulted in significantly greater bacteriological and clinical efficacies than those of penicillin V suspension given three times daily to pediatric patients with acute pharyngitis and a positive throat culture for GABHS.

The aim of the study is the evaluation of resistance patterns of E. coli in wastewater treatment plants without an evaluation of basic antibiotic resistance mechanisms. Investigations have been done in sewage, sludge and receiving waters from three different sewage treatment plants in southern Austria. A total of 767 E. coli isolates were tested regarding their resistance to 24 different antibiotics. The highest resistance rates were found in E. coli strains of a sewage treatment plant which treats not only municipal sewage but also sewage from a hospital. Among the antimicrobial agents tested, the highest resistance rates in the penicillin group were found for Ampicillin (AM) (up to 18%) and Piperacillin (PIP) (up to 12%); in the cephalosporin group for Cefalothin (CF) (up to 35%) and Cefuroxime-Axetil (CXMAX) (up to 11%); in the group of quinolones for Nalidixic acid (NA) (up to 15%); and for Trimethoprime/Sulfamethoxazole (SXT) (up to 13%) and for Tetracycline (TE) (57%). Median values for E. coli in the inflow (crude sewage) of the plants were between 2.0 x 10(4) and 6.1 x 10(4)CFU/ml (Coli ID-agar, BioMerieux 42017) but showed a 200-fold reduction in all three plants buy ceftin online in the effluent. Nevertheless, more than 10(2)CFU E. coli/ml reached the receiving water and thus sewage treatment processes contribute to the dissemination of resistant bacteria in the environment.

Cefuroxime-Axetil is an ester of cefuroxime, which can be used as an oral antimicrobial agent. The prodrug is hydrolysed by esterases of the gut mucosa, setting free the active cefuroxime. This second generation cephalosporin is well known since more than a decade as a cephalosporin possessing high stability against gram positive and gram negative beta-lactamases. Due to its pharmacokinetic properties and its wide spectrum of activity, cefuroxime-axetil was recommended to be used as an oral agent in bacterial infections of the respiratory tract. This paper describes the in vitro activity of cefuroxime against respiratory tract pathogens and compares it with that of ampicillin and amoxicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, cefaclor, chloramphenicol, tetracycline, erythromycin and trimethoprim/sulphamethoxazole. Cefuroxime had good activity against beta-lactamase-producing and beta-lactamase-negative H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis. As expected, the aminopenicillins showed reduced activity against beta-lactamase-producing strains of these organisms. Amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and, to a lesser degree, cefaclor also showed good activity against these bacteria. Cefuroxime was highly active against penicillin-susceptible pneumococci, but showed impaired activity against penicillin-resistant strains. Therefore, this drug should not be used in infections caused by penicillin-resistant pneumococci. Resistance to penicillin in pneumococci isolated in Switzerland is not a problem at the present time. For many years, such strains were isolated only sporadically. Cefuroxime showed also a buy ceftin online high in vitro activity against streptococci of serogroups A, B, C and G, which are encountered as respiratory tract pathogens. Against beta-lactamase-positive and -negative staphylococci, cefuroxime showed good activity. The drug was inactive, however, against methicillin-resistant strains.

Antimicrobial treatment of pediatric respiratory tract infections has evolved during the past 30 years as a result of antimicrobial resistance. The focus of antimicrobial therapy in these conditions has shifted from penicillins buy ceftin online to other agents because of the dramatic increase in antimicrobial resistance among common respiratory pathogens, including Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis. It is important for clinicians to understand how resistance develops so that they can help prevent this phenomenon from occurring with other antimicrobials.

Conditions for separation and determination of diastereoisomers of cefuroxime axetil by HPTLC on cellulose layers with densitometry were developed. A good separation of the constituents was achieved using a mobile phase composed of 1% aqueous beta-cyclodextrin-methanol (15 + 1, v/v). For detecting spots on the chromatograms, densitometric measurements were used at 285 nm. The method is characterized by high sensitivity; the LOD was 0.04 microg/spot and LOQ was 0.11 microg/spot for both forms of the cefuroxime axetil diastereoisomers. For the individual diastereoisomers, high recovery buy ceftin online values from 96.63 to 104.16% were obtained. Identification of the diastereoisomers was performed by 1H-NMR spectrometric analysis.

The efficacy and safety of amoxycillin/clavulanic acid (AMX/CA) (875/125 mg b.i.d. for 14 days) were compared with that of cefuroxime axetil (500 mg b.i.d. for 14 days) in a multicenter, open, parallel-group, randomized clinical trial in 206 adults with chronic or acute exacerbation of chronic sinusitis. Clinical response was similar, with 95% of AMX/CA-, and 88% of cefuroxime-treated, clinically evaluable patients cured (95% confidence interval; -0.6% to +15%). In bacteriologically evaluable patients, cure rates, defined as eradication of the original pathogen with or without re-colonization with non-pathogenic flora, were also similar, with 65% of AMX/CA- and 68% of cefuroxime-treated patients cured (95% confidence interval; -18% to +15%). However, clinical relapse was significantly higher in the cefuroxime group: 7% (7/89) of clinically evaluable patients, compared with 0% (0/98) in the AMX/CA (p=0.0049) group. A similar incidence of possible or definite adverse events related to the study drug was reported for both treatments (AMX/CA 4.4%, cefuroxime 4.3%), the most frequent being diarrhea. Four adverse events were recorded as serious or life-threatening with only one considered related to the study drug (urticaria, cefuroxime). AMX/CA 875/125 mg b.i buy ceftin online .d. for 14 days is as effective and well tolerated as cefuroxime axetil 500 mg b.i.d. for 14 days in the treatment of chronic, or acute exacerbation of chronic sinusitis, but is associated with a significantly lower clinical relapse rate.

Since oligopeptidic drugs such as beta-lactam antibiotics share the same carriers in humans and animals, the absorption and elimination kinetics of cefuroxime (C) were investigated in rats. Plasma C concentrations were measured by liquid chromatography. Pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of C in the rat were examined after intravenous (i.v.) administration at three doses (1.78, 8.9 and 17.8mg) of cefuroxime sodium and oral administration at two doses (2.02 and 8.9mg) of cefuroxime axetil (CA). Preliminary fits using data from intravenous administration of C showed that the drug disposition kinetics were clearly nonlinear, with an increase in plasma clearance as the intravenous dose increased. After oral administration of CA, normalized C(max) was higher for smaller dose than for the largest dose. The population pharmacokinetic parameters were obtained by means of nonlinear mixed effect modelling approach according to a nonlinear elimination and nonlinear absorption two-compartment model. The nonlinear elimination could be attributed to a saturable renal tubular reabsorption of the antibiotic and nonlinear intestinal absorption buy ceftin online of CA mediated by carrier system. The oral bioavailability of C, calculated by numeric integration of an amount of CA drug absorbed was 22 and 17% for 2.02 and 8.9mg of prodrug administered orally.

Antibiotic resistance to available antimicrobial agents has been constant since the introduction of the sulfonamides in the 1930s. Multidrug-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae and beta-lactamase-producing Haemophilus influenzae are a concern now because of the importance of these pathogens in infections of the respiratory tract in infants and children. Amoxicillin remains the drug of choice for initial episodes of acute otitis media (AOM) although increase of the dosage schedule to 80 mg/kg/day has been recommended by some investigators. There are 15 additional antimicrobial agents approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the indication of AOM. All approved drugs are clinically effective but some have been suggested to have priority for patients who fail amoxicillin: amoxicillin-clavulanate; an oral cephalosporin such as cefuroxime axetil; buy ceftin online and intramuscular ceftriaxone. Management of the child with severe and recurrent disease should include antibiotic prophylaxis but the increased incidence of resistance requires selective use. Prevention of infection may be achieved by innovative techniques for interference with attachment of bacteria to the nasal mucosa such as administration of oligosaccharides in a nasal spray. The currently available polysaccharide pneumococcal vaccines have limited immunogenicity in infants, but the vaccine is useful in children 2 years of age and older who still have recurrent AOM. Children with frequent AOM during the prior respiratory season are candidates also for influenza virus vaccine. If medical management fails to prevent new episodes of AOM in children with severe and recurrent disease, placement of tympanostomy tubes and possible adenoidectomy should be considered.

The care strategy of pharyngitis has been changed dramatically these last years. Because of evolution of antibiotic resistance, the attitude which prevailed of the systematic treatment of pharyngitis in order to prevent a hypothetical acute rheumatic fever, could not persist. Discrimination between pharyngitis due to group A streptococcus (GAS) and nonstreptococcal pharyngitis (usually of viral causes) cannot be made in a reliable way by the clinical signs and symptoms, even if clinical scores are used. The free availability to practitioners of GAS rapid diagnostic tests, sensitive (>90%) and specific (>95%), changes the rule by simplifying it: pharyngitis with positive test must be treated with antibiotics, those with negative test should not be received such treatment. A reduction of two thirds of antibiotics consumption for pharyngitis can be expected, while maintaining the benefit (improvement of the buy ceftin online clinical signs, reduction of contagiousness and the complications) for the patients for whom it is necessary. Because of GAS resistance to macrolides and the absence of resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics, a compound belonging of this last family should be prescribed and for a short treatment duration: amoxicillin (50 mg/kg/j, b.i.d for 6 days), cefpodoxime proxetil (8 mg/kg/j b.i.d for 5 days), cefuroxime axetil (30 mg/kg/j b.i.d for 4 days).

A study was carried out in general practice to assess the clinical effectiveness and tolerability of the oral cephalosporin, cefuroxime axetil, in the treatment of 369 patients Plavix Dosage presenting with acute infections of the upper respiratory tract. The main diagnoses were tonsillitis, pharyngitis, sinusitis and otitis media. Patients were treated for 7 days with 1 tablet of 250 mg cefuroxime axetil twice daily. Details of fever and signs and symptoms of infection such as pain, sinus tenderness and reddening of the eardrum were recorded before and after treatment. Response was assessed by the physician on the basis of the clinical findings (the microbiological findings will be reported separately), and by patients on their satisfaction with their therapy. The results indicated an overall clinical improvement rate of 89%: all clinical parameters showed significant improvement and most patients were symptom-free when seen after treatment. Only 2 patients were classified as treatment failures and withdrawn from the study. Complete resolution of the infection was seen more often in patients with tonsillitis and pharyngitis than in those with sinusitis or otitis media. Over 80% of patients expressed their satisfaction with therapy. Adverse events reported were few, even though patients were prompted with a non-leading question, and were mainly mild in nature. The most frequently reported were diarrhoea (5%) and loose motions (3%).

The effects of antibiotics after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) were investigated in a prospective, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study in 202 patients. Hundred and one patients received cefuroxime axetil (Zinnat, 2 x 250 mg/d). The other half received placebo. Patients received no nasal packing and were treated with nasal washes and steroids. Ten subjective symptoms (headache, maxillary pressure, nasal obstruction, nasal secretions, blood, post nasal drip, sneezing, cough, smell disturbances Requip Normal Dosage and illness) were recorded daily and at weekly postoperative visits (including suction cleaning when indicated) seven endoscopic parameters were evaluated. There were no statistical differences in the total and individual symptom and endoscopic scores. There was no significant difference in the incidence of postoperative infections between both groups. In conclusion, antibiotics do not influence the immediate postoperative clinical evolution after ESS.

The safety of levofloxacin was compared to that of non-fluoroquinolone alternatives used for respiratory tract infections. Results from five randomised controlled trials revealed that the incidence of any adverse events possibly associated with levofloxacin ranged from 5.8% to 22.7%, whereas that of comparators (ceftriaxone, cefuroxime axetil, clarithromycin and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid) ranged from 8.5% to 39.3%. The rate of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) was lower for levofloxacin in all trials. The most common adverse events for all agents tended Glucotrol Overdose to be gastrointestinal in nature. Levofloxacin was associated with a mild effect on the normal microflora, reaching a maximum at four days of therapy, with complete recovery being achieved by seven days post-therapy. No colonisation with resistant strains was observed during the period of levofloxacin therapy. Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid administration selected for resistant strains of Enterobacteriaceae, and ampicillin administration was associated with both resistant strains of Enterobacteriacae as well as Candida spp. Ceftriaxone selected resistant strains of Clostridium difficile and Candida spp. Thus, microflora effects favoured levofloxacin over all of the agents tested, including macrolides and tetracyclines. These results confirm that the ecological impact of levofloxacin is markedly less than that associated with non-fluoroquinolone comparators.

Development of resistance to antibiotics is a major problem worldwide. The normal oropharyngeal flora, the intestinal flora and the skin flora play important roles in this development. Within a few days after the onset of antibiotic therapy, resistant Escherichia coli, Haemophilus influenzae and Staphylococcus epidermidis can be detected in the normal flora of volunteers or patients. Horizontal spread of the resistance genes to other species, e.g. Salmonella spp., Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pneumoniae, occurs by conjugation or transformation. Famvir 125 Mg An ecologically sound antibiotic policy favours the use of antibiotics with little or no impact on the normal flora. Prodrug antibiotics which are not active against the bacteria in the mouth and the intestine (before absorption) and which are not excreted to a significant degree via the intestine, saliva or skin are therefore preferred. Prodrugs such as pivampicillin, bacampicillin, pivmecillinam and cefuroxime axetil are favourable from an ecological point of view. Experience from Scandinavia supports this, since resistance to mecillinam after 20 years of use is low (about 5%) and stable.

Cefuroxime axetil is a beta-lactamase-stable, second-generation, oral cephalosporin that penetrates sinus tissue in concentrations exceeding the MIC90 values (the minimum concentration of drug needed to inhibit the growth of 90% of an isolate of a particular microorganism) for pathogens most commonly associated with acute sinusitis, including Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae. A review of all clinical data published to date demonstrates that cefuroxime axetil has been evaluated in the treatment of acute sinusitis and acute exacerbations of chronic sinusitis ("acute-on-chronic sinusitis") in 18 clinical trials involving 1516 assessable patients. In 12 randomized, comparative trials, the rates of satisfactory clinical outcomes (cure or improvement, 79% to 100%) and bacteriologic eradication (84% to 100%) reported with the use of 250 mg of cefuroxime axetil twice daily were similar to those observed with the use of amoxicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanate potassium, cefaclor, cefadroxil, cefixime, Zoloft Overdose Amount clarithromycin, and doxycycline. In these comparisons, no antibiotic demonstrated any therapeutic advantages over cefuroxime axetil regarding time to symptom abatement. Cefuroxime axetil was at least as well tolerated as the other antibiotics. Overall, the role of cefuroxime axetil in the treatment of sinusitis appears to be as one of the broad-spectrum antibiotics that can be used for infections due to the most commonly implicated sinus pathogens, especially those due to the increasing number of relatively penicillin-resistant strains of S pneumoniae and beta-lactamase-producing strains of H influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis.

The progress in the knowledge of antibiotic action mechanisms have led to determine phamacodynamic/pharmacokinetic (PK/PD) parameters predictive of antibiotic efficacy in bacterial infections. According to the antibiotic compound, the implicated bacterial specie, the localization of the infection, the severity of the disease, these parameters could vary. The PK/PD parameters described in this paper focus only on blood compartment and S. aureus, (main bacteria implicated in bone and joint tissue infections). All beta-lactamase resistant beta-lactam compounds given by IV route, if they are prescribed at the good dosage and frequency, fulfill these PK/PD parameters. In contrast, by oral route, M penicillins and cefuroxime-axetil should not Topamax Generic be considered as acceptable regimens. Only amoxicillin-clavulanate and some first generation cephalosporin compounds fulfill the PK/PD parameters predictive of clinical efficacy if S. aureus strains are methicillin susceptible and dosages of cephalosporins are increased. Clindamycin is a very interesting alternative, if the strains are susceptible to macrolides.

A ten day course of oral penicillin is still recommended for pharyngotonsillitis with the aim of eradicating Streptococcus pyogenes and preventing rheumatic fever. However there is some evidence that penicillin V therapy is less satisfactory than in former years. Several explanations have been suggested, including inadequate pharmacokinetic properties, poor patient compliance, penicillin tolerance, re-infection and carrier state, and indirect pathogenicity. In this context we evaluated the efficacy of third generation cephalosporins. We have shown that a short course of five days treatment with cefpodoxime is as effective as the ten days of conventional treatment with penicillin in terms of both clinical and bacteriological efficacy. Moreover the possibility of reducing the duration of therapy and the twice daily administration of these new cephalosporins results in better patient compliance with treatment.

Cefuroxime axetil and cefaclor were compared for efficacy in the treatment of acute otitis media with effusion. Sixty-four pediatric outpatients had tympanocentesis for culture, and then were randomized to a ten-day course of treatment with cefuroxime axetil or cefaclor. Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae were isolated from 25 (39%) and 23 (36%) patients, respectively. Treatment was beneficial in 26 (90%) of the patients who received cefuroxime axetil, and in 16 (76%) of the cefaclor-treated patients. Treatment failed in five (24%) of the cefaclor-treated patients, and in only three (10%) patients who received cefuroxime axetil. Haemophilus influenzae was the initial causative pathogen in a disproportionate number of treatment failures. This study demonstrates the efficacy of cefuroxime axetil in the treatment of otitis media.
