The purposes of this study are:
1. To estimate the prevalence of extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) and/or AmpC among Enterobacteriaceae which cause community-onset urinary tract infections (UTIs)
2. To collect the background, risk factors and clinical outcome of patients with community-acquired uropathogenic condition related to Enterobacteriaceae (both ESBL, AmpC- and non ESBL and/or AmpC producing) after receive different antibiotic regimens.
3. To develop a scoring system to early identify patients at risk of being infected with ESBL- and/or AmpC-producing Enterobacteriaceae by comparing the risk factors for community-onset UTIs caused by ESBL- and/or AmpC-positive against non ESBL -and/or AmpC Enterobacteriaceae
4. To demonstrate the efficacy and safety of ertapenem for the empiric treatment of community-onset UTIs in patients at risk for ESBL- and/or AmpC-producing organism.
The study hypothesis (i) Patients infected with community-acquired uropathogenic ESBL- and/or AmpC-producing Enterobacteriaceae who receive regimens other than carbapenems have a worse outcome.
(ii) There are certain risk factors predicting the acquisition of community-onset UTIs caused by ESBL- and/or AmpC-producing Enterobacteriaceae.
(iii) The use of ertapenem is an effective and safe empirical therapy compared with other agents for community-onset UTIs caused by ESBL- and/or AmpC-producing Enterobacteriaceae.

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.
