Because patients receiving observation care generally are classified as outpatients and are often ambulatory, there is a paucity of literature describing an evidence-based approach for VTE prophylaxis
in this population.
Because of expanded access and progression towards initiation of antiretroviral treatment (ART), the WHO issued updated guidelines for co-trimoxazole prophylaxis
In the HAVEN 3 study in people with haemophilia A without factor VIII inhibitors, Hemlibra prophylaxis
led to statistically significant and clinically meaningful reductions in treated bleeds compared to no prophylaxis
, and compared to prior treatment with factor VIII prophylaxis
in a prospective intra-patient comparison.
Johnny Mahlangu, M.B., B.Ch., from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, and colleagues randomized patients with hemophilia A without factor VIII inhibitors to receive a subcutaneous maintenance dose of emicizumab of 1.5 mg/kg of body weight/week (group A), 3 mg/kg every two weeks (group B), or no prophylaxis
(group C) in a phase 3 multicenter trial.
Amoxicillin was the most frequently chosen (61.4%) first line antibiotic for odontogenic infections and for prophylaxis

Following are the updated recommended doses of GamaSTAN S/D for hepatitis A preexposure and postexposure prophylaxis
Sterilization and disinfection, antimicrobial prophylaxis
regimens, intestinal decontamination procedures and routine biopsy procedures were reevaluated in cooperation with the corresponding clinics.
For example, investing in naloxone therapy, detoxification programs, opioid agonist therapy, and needle exchange programs also prevents HIV infection --in some cases, more effectively than preexposure prophylaxis
This second Phase 3 treatment trial compares two doses of Baremsis against placebo in post-surgical patients who develop PONV despite prior antiemetic prophylaxis
Praditpan and Davis respond Thank you for your comment and for allowing us to provide clarification on the topic of antibiotic prophylaxis
at the time of vacuum aspiration for miscarriage management.
A retrospective study of 12,687 12- to 18-year-old adolescents (93% female) treated for sexual assault at 38 emergency departments showed that, overall, 44% received the recommended testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and pregnancy (range, 6%-89%), while 35% received recommended prophylaxis
is aimed to reduce the incidence of SSI by preventing the development of infection caused by organisms that colonize or contaminate the surgical site.
