Summary of "The role of infection acquisition site and inappropriate empirical treatment on the outcome of extended-beta-lactamase producing Enterobacteriaceae infections."

The impact of inappropriate empirical antibiotic therapy (IEAT) on the outcome of severe infections due to extended spectrum beta-lactamases producers Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-Ent) remains under debate. Current evidence is limited by study design and lacking confounder control. The main objective of this study was to define the outcome of severe infections due to ESBL-Ent according to clinical parameters and place of acquisition.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.

A prokaryotic ATP-dependent protease that plays a role in the degradation of many abnormal proteins. It is a tetramer of 87-kDa subunits, each of which contains a proteolytic site and a ATP-binding site.

A list, criteria, or screening tool designed to improve PATIENT SAFETY by determining an individual's exposure to potentially inappropriate drugs. They are designed to prevent MEDICATION ERRORS by INAPPROPRIATE PRESCRIBING. Analysis for a list includes factors such as DOSE-RESPONSE RELATIONSHIP, DRUG; DRUG-RELATED SIDE EFFECTS AND ADVERSE REACTIONS; AGE FACTORS; GENDER; and existing medical conditions.

Infection occurring at the site of a surgical incision.

Infection with CYTOMEGALOVIRUS, characterized by enlarged cells bearing intranuclear inclusions. Infection may be in almost any organ, but the salivary glands are the most common site in children, as are the lungs in adults.
