This is a clinical study organized to collect clinical data to better define the activity of some antimicrobials already marketed in Italy and in the rest of the world for the treatment of...
A study to compare the safety and efficacy of moxifloxacin to ertapenem in patients with intra-abdominal infections.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Avelox in a 5 day treatment of adult patients with acute bacterial sinusitis and to measure the amount of time it ta...
A study to assess the safety and efficacy of moxifloxacin compared to that of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid for the treatment of subjects with acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis.
The purpose of this trial is to determine the efficacy and safety of Moxifloxacin in comparison to Sulbactam/Ampicillin in the treatment of pulmonary abscesses and aspiration pneumonia.
Intraabdominal infections are the second most common cause of sepsis in intensive care units. Intraabdominal infections represent a wide variety of pathological conditions that involve lesions of all ...
To investigate the diffusion of moxifloxacin through bandage contact lenses (BCLs) versus corneal collagen shields (CSs), the relative ability of BCLs and CSs to release moxifloxacin, and the potentia...
Ertapenem is a therapeutic option in patients with Gram-negative bone and joint infection (BJI). The subcutaneous (sc) route of administration is convenient in the outpatient setting and has shown fav...
Atopobium rimae and Parvimonas micra are both Gram-positive anaerobes involved infrequently in human infections. We report a polymicrobial anaerobic bacteremia caused by these microorganisms. A 43-yea...
Stenotrophomonas maltophilia usually causes nosocomial infections, but intraabdominal abscesses or organ/space surgical site infection (SSI) secondary to this organism has been rarely reported. Here, ...
A fixed-ratio combination of amoxicillin trihydrate (see AMOXICILLIN), an aminopenicillin, and potassium clavulanate (see CLAVULANIC ACID), a beta-lactamase inhibitor, used to treat a broad-spectrum of bacterial infections, especially resistant strains.
Infection within the PERITONEAL CAVITY. A frequent cause is an ANASTOMOTIC LEAK following surgery.
A broad-spectrum semisynthetic antibiotic similar to AMPICILLIN except that its resistance to gastric acid permits higher serum levels with oral administration.
A common neoplasm of early childhood arising from neural crest cells in the sympathetic nervous system, and characterized by diverse clinical behavior, ranging from spontaneous remission to rapid metastatic progression and death. This tumor is the most common intraabdominal malignancy of childhood, but it may also arise from thorax, neck, or rarely occur in the central nervous system. Histologic features include uniform round cells with hyperchromatic nuclei arranged in nests and separated by fibrovascular septa. Neuroblastomas may be associated with the opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2099-2101; Curr Opin Oncol 1998 Jan;10(1):43-51)
