Tazocin Intervention Study
1. To determine the value of using piperacillin/tazobactam in reducing the cases of extended spectrum beta lactamases (ESBL) producing E. coli or K. pneumoniae colonization and infection.
2. To determine the acquisition rate of ESBL producing E. coli or K. pneumoniae, both pre-and post-intervention in the selected medical centers.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

Central Nervous System Bacterial Infections
Bacterial infections of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges, including infections involving the perimeningeal spaces.
Semisynthetic, broad-spectrum, AMPICILLIN derived ureidopenicillin antibiotic proposed for PSEUDOMONAS infections. It is also used in combination with other antibiotics.
Central Nervous System Infections
Pathogenic infections of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges. DNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; RNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; BACTERIAL INFECTIONS; MYCOPLASMA INFECTIONS; SPIROCHAETALES INFECTIONS; fungal infections; PROTOZOAN INFECTIONS; HELMINTHIASIS; and PRION DISEASES may involve the central nervous system as a primary or secondary process.
Inflammation of the lung parenchyma that is caused by bacterial infections.
Infections by bacteria, general or unspecified.
The proposed endpoints of the study would be: comparative use of piperacillin versus broader spectrum agents (e.g., piperacillin/tazobactam, etc.) [measured as defined daily doses per 1000...
To compare the safety and efficacy of piperacillin/tazobactam (4 g/500 mg) administered intravenously every 6 hours to cefepime (2 g) administered intravenously every 8 hours for the empir...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how BLI-489 and piperacillin interact when given together to healthy subjects.
The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy and tolerance of piperacillin-tazobactam versus piperacillin-tazobactam plus glycopeptide as initial empiric antibiotic treatment for fever...
The purposes of this study are: 1. To determine whether procalcitonin level at admission of pediatric patients with bacterial infections can be used as a marker for prediction of d...
ABSTRACT: The four most common bacterial skin infections are impetigo, erysipelas, cellulitis, and folliculitis. This article summarizes current information about the etiology, clinical presentation,...
BACKGROUND: Treating patients admitted to critical care with severe pneumonia requires timely intervention with an effective antibiotic. This reduces the risk of dying of pneumonia and minimises compl...
Urinary tract infections occur very frequently in the community and in hospitalized patients and are mainly caused by Escherichia (E.) coli. Depending on virulence determinants of uropathogenic microo...
Bacterial infections are a serious complication of hematologic malignancies and the therapies used to treat them. Neutropenia can result from the malignancy itself or develop as a complication of chem...
BACKGROUND.: Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is the main immune molecule that recognizes lipopolysaccharide from gram-negative bacteria. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the TLR4 gene that impair...
