In vitro susceptibilities of isolates from patients with Branhamella catarrhalis pneumonia compared with those of colonizing strains. Clinical features and diagnosis Otitis media with effusion serous otitis media in children: Moraxella catarrhalis pneumonia during HIV disease.
A descriptive study of 42 cases of Branhamella catarrhalis pneumonia. Presently, Branhamella catarrhalis has been delegated to the genus Moraxella and has been renamed Moraxella catarrhalis.
MICs are a single piece of information that must be interpreted in conjunction with other factors such as the achievable concentration of an antimicrobial at the site of infection, host factors, necessity for bactericidal activity, and breakpoint criteria to arrive at a sound therapeutic decision. Activity of the ketolide antibacterial telithromycin against typical community-acquired respiratory pathogens.
Empirical treatment prior to culture confirmation of M. Br J Vener Dis ; Since the recent recognition of M. No bactericidal activity was noted with cefaclor at 5 h, and no appreciable killing occurred at 24 h.
Twelve percent of the isolates were M. Isoelectric focusing of beta-lactamases from sputum and middle ear isolates of Branhamella catarrhalisrecovered in the United States. Serum bactericidal activity of cefuroxime axetil, cefetamet pivoxil, and ceftibuten was evaluated against 10 strains of M. Prudent use of antibiotics in the managed-care environment with formulary restrictions must be balanced with the delivery of safe and effective therapy without risk to the patient.
Carefully standardized media and methodologies must be used when comparing susceptibility data to ensure accurate results.
A trend toward rising MICs of cotrimazole has been noted as well as sporadic resistance. In contrast, Riley et al. The organism was markedly resistant with MICs of 1.
The progressive spread of resistance among other respiratory pathogens such as S. Underlying immunoglobulin deficiency is an interesting though quantitatively less important risk factor for M. The peak rate of colonisation by M. During the first reported case of M.
Treatment of ocular infections such as conjunctivitis and keratitis is usually initiated while awaiting culture. Topical fluoroquinolones are generally reserved for severe conjunctivitis.
