Analysis of Phase 3 telavancin nosocomial pneumonia
data excluding patients with severe renal impairment and acute renal failure.
Samples were collected in 62 episodes of community-acquired pneumonia, 120 episodes of nosocomial pneumonia
, and 28 episodes of mixed pneumonia (community-acquired, complicated with a nosocomial infection).
The abovementioned search strategies were independently employed by the two reviewers after initially considering the titles of the articles relevant to the study, by searching with the use of the following keywords: ventilator-associated pneumonia, chlorhexidine, oral care, mouth care, nosocomial pneumonia

in critically ill trauma patients.
An antibacterial for adults with vancomycin-resistant Enterococus faecium (VREF) infections, nosocomial pneumonia
