This study evaluated whether trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) is effective for treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs) due to TMP-SMX-resistant (TMP-SMX-R) pathogens. Healthy nonpregnant premenopausal women with symptomatic lower UTI were assessed for the presence of pyuria and bacteriuria; if either was present, a urine sample was cultured and TMP-SMX was prescribed. Clinical and microbiologic cure was assessed at days 5-9 and 28-42 after cessation of therapy. For 71… CONTINUE READING
