Infections that appear only on the skin surface (called cellulitis and erysipelas) that h...

Stool Biobanking and Impact of Antimicrobials on the Gut Microbiota in Patients With Bone and Joint Infection

Bone and joint infections (BJI) is a public health issue in industrialized countries. Implant-associated BJI, are complex hospital-acquired infections and eradication of the pathogen is challenging in such patients. A prolonged antimicrobial therapy is usually required from 6 weeks to 3 months, but some patients are eligible to several years of treatment and most of patie...

Penicillin Against Flucloxacillin Treatment Evaluation

There is theroretical superiority with benzylpenicillin over orther anti-staphylococcal penicillins (ASP) for treatment of penicillin susceptible S. aureus (PSSA) infections due to a lower MIC distribution when compared with ASPs active against PSSA, combined with the ability to obtain higher levels of free non-protein-bound plasma drug concentrations. Although the data to ...
