Conclusions: These results support the conclusion that 5 days of treatment with telithromycin is as safe and effective in patients with ABMS as a 10-day course of treatment with amoxicillin-clavulanate
or cefuroxime axetil.
is recommended as the initial antibiotic treatment of choice for suspected resistant H.
The testing and determination of resistance to [beta]-lactam agents such as penicillin, amoxicillin and amoxicillin-clavulanate
has not been clearly defined and these antibiotics are not mentioned in the CLSI statement.
Antimicrobial drag treatment with amoxicillin-clavulanate
acid was begun.
In a multicenter randomized trial, researchers compared amoxicillin-clavulanate
or ibuprofen with placebo in 416 adults.

These organisms are routinely resistant to amoxicillin but commonly respond to amoxicillin-clavulanate
In order to counter potential bacterial resistance to antibiotics, the IDSA guidelines recommend using augmented amoxicillin-clavulanate
combinations over amoxicillin alone for uncomplicated suspected bacterial sinusitis where the endemic rate of penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae is greater than 10%.
The guidelines also recommend treating bacterial sinus infections with amoxicillin-clavulanate
versus the current standard of care, amoxicillin.
Randomized controlled trial of moxifloxacin compared with piperacillin-tazobactam and amoxicillin-clavulanate
for the treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infections.
Treatment for these ulcers involves managing pain with lidocaine and systemic pain medications, intralesional triamcinolone, and amoxicillin-clavulanate
and fluconazole for superinfection.
Four different cephalosporin disks--ceftazidime, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, cefepime (30 [micro]g each) were placed around the amoxicillin-clavulanate
disk (Oxoid, UK), at a center-to-center distance of 15 mm from the central disk.
