They however responded to other antibiotics like meropenem (9 cases), 1 of each responded to co-amoxiclav
, cefixime and ofloxacin.
Frequent and inadvisable use of antibiotics in the current study population could be the possible cause of high level of resistance to co-amoxiclav
. The use of these prescribed drugs in our settings is questionable because the prescription of these drugs is common.18 Because these are more affordable than other antibiotics, therefore these are widely used.
He said: "During the appointment with Dr Ubhi, we were prescribed a course of Co-amoxiclav
, an antibiotic which has anti-inflammatory properties.
This is in accordance with the fact that penicillin is the first line of drug in treating odontogenic infections as it is a broad spectrum antibiotic and covers both aerobes and anaerobes.8 When inquired about alternative to penicillin in case of allergy, 21 students opted co-amoxiclav
, which shows that they were unaware of the fact that it is also a penicillin (p=0.02).
There was no standardised treatment protocol for the management of empyema; however, all children with empyema receive broad-spectrum antibiotics (ampicillin and gentamicin, or co-amoxiclav
Ceftazidime and co-amoxiclav
discs were placed 30 mm apart (centre to centre) and incubated at 37[degrees]C for 24 hours.
Speaking on this occasion, CEO GSK Pakistan, Muhammad Azizul Huq, says, 'Along with the benefits to our patients, GSK Pakistan is proud to be the first country in the GSK network to introduce dessiflex technology, and we look forward to transferring expertise to the rest of our global markets.' Co-amoxiclav
, or Augmentin, is highly sensitive to moisture, and given GSK's standards of quality, conventional blister packaging proved insufficient to maintain the necessary efficacy of the drug.
He was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for inotropes and was started on co-amoxiclav
, ceftazidime, and azithromycin.
Surveillance of susceptibility patterns in 1297 European and US anaerobic and capnophilic isolates to co-amoxiclav
and five other antimicrobial agents.
Patients were advised tab co-amoxiclav
625mg 8 hourly, tab mefenamic acid 500mg 8 hourly, tab chlorpheniramine maleate 4mg once daily, xylometazoline nasal spray and liquid paraffine nasal drops 2 drops 8 hourly and regular nasal toilet for 5 days.
The antibiotic-susceptibility results of the isolate performed according to CLSI disc diffusion method  showed resistance to antibiotics such as ampicillin, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, cotrimoxazole, and co-amoxiclav
. The isolate was susceptible to imipenem, meropenem, ertapenem, amikacin, and netilmicin but was resistant to cefotaxime, cefixime, cefepime, and aztreonam (Table 1).
oxytoca were found to be sensitive to amoxicillin and co-amoxiclav
. Out of 61 genomic DNA subjected to antibacterial resistance analysis, 24 harbored the resistance genes; blaCTX-M gene was detected in PCR products of E.
