hospitalized patients with community-acquired pneumonia in hong kong: a randomized study comparing imipenem/cilastatin and ceftazidime.the aetiology and outcome of hospitalized patients with moderate to severe community-acquired pneumonia (cap) were evaluated in 60 adult patients (38 male 22 female, mean age 68.4 years). they were randomized for treatment with either ceftazidime or imipenem/cilastatin intravenously for 7 days. bacteriological diagnoses were made in 25 cases (41.6%): streptococcus pneumoniae (5), haemophilus influenzae (5), pseudomonas spp. in particular pseudomonas aeruginosa (8), staphylococcus aureus (4), chl ...19979154675
comparative in vitro activity of a pharmacokinetically enhanced oral formulation of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (2000/125 mg twice daily) against 9172 respiratory isolates collected worldwide in 2000.a new, pharmacokinetically enhanced, oral formulation of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid has been developed to overcome resistance in the major bacterial respiratory pathogen streptococcus pneumoniae, while maintaining excellent activity against haemophilus influenzae and moraxella catarrhalis, including beta-lactamase producing strains. this study was conducted to provide in vitro susceptibility data for amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and 16 comparator agents against the key respiratory tract pathogen ...200415494258
sputum bacteriology in patients hospitalized with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and concomitant pneumonia in hong kong.to study the sputum microbiology of patients admitted to a teaching hospital with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (aecopd) with concomitant pneumonia.200516248860
protekt 1999-2000: a multicentre study of the antibiotic susceptibility of respiratory tract pathogens in hong kong, japan and south korea.a multicentre surveillance study performed in the far east during 1999-2000 investigated the in vitro activity of >20 antibacterials against common respiratory pathogens. in hong kong, japan, and south korea, 57.1, 44.5 and 71.5% streptococcus pneumoniae were penicillin-resistant and 71.4, 77.9 and 87.6% were erythromycin-resistant, respectively. overall, >90% of penicillin-resistant strains were also macrolide-resistant. all strains were susceptible to telithromycin. fluoroquinolone-resistant i ...200414732313
