Serial plasma concentrations were measured after administration of two 1 g tablets of Augmentin (1750 mg of amoxicillin and 250 mg of clavulanate) to 14 adult patients with melioidosis. Monte Carlo simulation was used to predict the concentration of each drug following multiple doses of co-amoxiclav at different dosages and dose intervals. The proportion of the dose-interval above MIC (T > MIC) was calculated from 10,000 simulated subject plasma concentration profiles together with chequerboard MIC data from 46 clinical isolates and four reference strains of Burkholderia pseudomallei. ceftin or augmentin.
Limited data are available regarding the appropriate antibiotic management of UTI in pregnancy. Single-dose cure rates with amoxicillin are approximately 80 percent. Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole provides cure rates of greater than 80 percent. Cephalosporins and nitrofurantoin produce variable results. augmentin treat uti.
SSI after an open appendectomy remains an important problem. In order to determine a true incidence of SSI, it is necessary to improve the national nosocomial infection surveillance system. The CMP used in the study have showed a trend to significant SSI risk reduction and may be recommended to maximize patient protection. Further large studies are needed to confirm effectiveness of the proposed CMP. augmentin kill strep.
Allergic reactions to beta-lactam antibiotics have been reported frequently and may occur because of sensitization to unique haptens or to determinants shared with other drugs. A woman who received 1 tablet of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid developed wheals and flares although she had previously tolerated the same preparation well. Levels of specific immunoglobulin (Ig) E to penicillin V, penicillin G, amoxicillin, and ampicillin were undetectable. Skin tests to amoxicillin, penicillin major determinant and minor determinant mixture were negative. The patient tolerated oral challenge with 500 mg of amoxicillin but developed wheals and flares when challenged with amoxicillin-clavulanic acid 500/125 mg. A histamine release test was negative with amoxicillin but positive with the amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and clavulanic acid. A prick test to the combination was positive. Specific IgE to penicillin V later became positive while remaining negative to other beta-lactams. No inhibition was obtained using penicillin V against clavulanic acid and amoxicillin but was complete when penicillin V was used in the solid-phase and as the inhibitor. No cross-reactivity was proven between these sensitizations. can i take augmentin for sore throat.
