Disturbance of the Intestinal Microbiota by Temocillin vs Cefotaxime in Treatment of Febrile Urinary Tract Infections

2016-11-10 09:38:21 | BioPortfolio


This study will evaluate the ecological impact on the intestinal microbiota and compare the safety and efficacy of temocillin compared to cefotaxime, in empiric treatment of febrile UTI. Half of participants will receive temocillin and the other half will receive cefotaxime.


Temocillin is a narrow spectrum antibiotic with activity against gram negative bacteria inclusive many ESBL producing bacteria. Temocillin is approved and marketed in a few European countries since the 1980´s but not in Sweden.

The aim of the study is to find an ecological favorable alternative to cephalosporins in the treatment of this common indication.

The hypothesis is that treatment with temocillin causes less disturbances on the intestinal microbiota while at least comparable efficacy.

The study will be performed as an open prospective multicentre study with two parallel groups comparing 2 g temocillin three times daily with 1-2 g cefotaxim three times daily for 7-10 days in male and female adult patients with febrile urinary tract infection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammatory responses of the epithelium of the URINARY TRACT to microbial invasions. They are often bacterial infections with associated BACTERIURIA and PYURIA.

A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.

A second-generation cephalosporin administered intravenously or intramuscularly. Its bactericidal action results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis. It is used for urinary tract infections, lower respiratory tract infections, and soft tissue and bone infections.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.

Strains of Escherichia coli that preferentially grow and persist within the urinary tract. They exhibit certain virulence factors and strategies that cause urinary tract infections.
