In a consecutive series of 65 patients treated by allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, we have compared the efficacy on prevention of bacterial infection of total gut decontamination with oral non absorbable antibiotics or with oral absorbable broad spectrum antibiotics. On day-8, all patients were randomly allocated to one group: Group I received orally pefloxacin 400 mg/day and penicillin 3 M UI/day. Group II received capsules containing cephalothin 250 mg, gentamicin 20 mg and bacitracin… CONTINUE READING
