We compared these methods to(More)
A new macrolide drug, clarithromycin (Biaxin) was compared with amoxicillin/clavulanate (Augmentin) in a single-blind (investigator-blind), randomized, multicenter study of 497 outpatients with acute maxillary sinusitis; treatment was 500 mg clarithromycin bid (n = 246) or 500 mg amoxicillin/clavulanate tid (n = 251).
