Cimetidine (a prototypical H-2 blocker/anti- ulcer), can be obtained from metiamide (H-2 blocker) by bioisosteric replacement of thiourea group with cyanoguanidine group and thus eliminate granulocytopenic
toxicity associated with metiamide .
Voriconazole, alone or in combination, is probably the drug of choice for this infection especially in a granulocytopenic

Comparison of standard versus pharmacokinctically adjusted amikacin dosing in granulocytopenic
These findings underscore the critical role of neutrophils in host defense against bacterial infection, (1) and are consistent with findings in murine models of granulocytopenic
hosts infected with S aureus.
Since most CAUTIs are a symptomatic and do not result in urosepsis (13), it is difficult to justify antimicrobial therapy of asymptomatic bacteriuria other than for granulocytopenic
or other severely immunocompromised patients, patients scheduled for urologic surgery, pregnant women, patients with Serratia CAUTI, or patients about to have their catheter removed.
