  • Thirty-six urological patients (21 male, 15 female) aged 21 to 83 years with complicated and/or hospital-acquired urinary tract infections due to sensitive bacteria were treated with ceftazidime intravenously with a daily dose of 2 g bd over 5 to 17 days. Twenty-seven patients were followed for 1 to 4 weeks after therapy. Cure was observed in 41%, reinfection in 33% and relapse in 26% of the patients. Eradication of the original pathogen occurred in 74%. Five patients showed minor side effects… CONTINUE READING
