Inoculum Effect on the Efficacies of Amoxicillin-Clavulanate, Piperacillin-Tazobactam, and Imipenem against Extended-Spectrum -Lactamase (ESBL)-Producing and Non-ESBL-Producing Escherichia coli in an Experimental Murine Sepsis Model [Article]
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-04)
Escherichia coli is commonly involved in infections with a heavy bacterial burden. Piperacillin-tazobactam and carbapenems are among the recommended empirical treatments for health care-associated complicated intra-abdominal ...
Impact of the MIC of Piperacillin-Tazobactam on the Outcome of Patients with Bacteremia Due to Extended-Spectrum-B-Lactamase- Producing Escherichia coli [Article]
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-07)
We investigated the impact of the piperacillin-tazobactam MIC in the outcome of 39 bloodstream infections due to extended- spectrum-B-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli. All 11 patients with urinary tract infections ...
Impact of Inadequate Empirical Therapy on the Mortality of Patients with Bloodstream Infections: a Propensity Score-Based Analysis [Article]
(American Society for Microbiology, 2012)
The impact of the adequacy of empirical therapy on outcome for patients with bloodstream infections (BSI) is key for determin- ing whether adequate empirical coverage should be prioritized over other, more conservative ...
