A randomized, blinded, multicenter trial was conducted to compare fluconazole (800 mg per day) plus placebo with fluconazole plus amphotericin B (AmB) deoxycholate (0.7 mg/kg per day, with the placebo/AmB component given only for the first 5-6 days) as therapy for candidemia due to species other than Candida krusei in adults without neutropenia. A total of(More)
The primary objectives of this analysis were to determine which pharmacokinetic model most accurately describes the elimination pathways for piperacillin in the presence of tazobactam through population pharmacokinetic modeling and to characterize its pharmacodynamic profile. Once the optimal pharmacokinetic model was identified, Monte Carlo simulation of(More)
PURPOSE To determine the toxicity of various doses of intravitreal amphotericin B deoxycholate, amphotericin B lipid complex (ABLC), and liposomal amphotericin B (L-AmB). METHODS Fifty-two rabbits were divided into two treatment groups (groups A and B). Thirteen treatments were administered intravitreally to the 104 rabbit eyes. Treatments included a(More)
Reports of fidaxomicin treatment for patients with multiple recurrent Clostridium difficile infections ([mrCDI] ie, more than 2 CDI episodes) indicate symptomatic response to this agent, but 50% have subsequent mrCDI episodes. In an effort to improve outcomes in patients with mrCDI we used novel regimens of fidaxomicin based on strategies used with(More)
We currently face a lack of new antimicrobial therapies in an era of increasingly common multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria. The polymyxins have become last-line treatments for patients with MDR bacterial infections. An increasing body of published literature has attempted to answer questions about dosing, pharmacology, and susceptibility testing of these(More)
Clostridium difficile remains a major public health threat and continues to contribute to excess morbidity, mortality and healthcare costs. Antimicrobial stewardship programs have demonstrated success in combating C. difficile, primarily through antibiotic restrictive strategies. As the incidence and prevalence of C. difficile associate disease continues to(More)
The in-vitro activities of paromomycin and metronidazole alone or paromomycin and metronidazole plus hydroxymetronidazole (2:1 ratio) were studied against 19 Helicobacter pylori isolates using an in-vitro chequerboard technique. Partial synergy was demonstrated for the majority of isolates (11/19) for both combinations tested. When hydroxymetronidazole was(More)
