Association between chronic lung disease and peri-odontal infection has recently been reported. The microbiology of peri-odontal infection and lung infection is almost similar. The most direct means by which the oral infection might influence lung disease is by aspiration of dental plaque bacteria into the lower respiratory tract. In this case report we are presenting a patient who suffered recurrent lung infection. Intra-oral examination revealed the presence of chronic peri-odontitis, which was not treated before. On providing treatment for lung infection in addition to that for peri-odontal infection, there was no recurrence of lung infection.

Staphylococcus aureus is an important health care-associated pathogen that often is resistant to antibiotics. The authors conducted a pilot study to determine if abiotic surfaces in a dental clinic were contaminated frequently.
Current course of IE dictates the necessity of fighting resistant microflora especially in case of nosocomial disease. Recurrences become more frequent. Indications to surgery did not change for the last decade. The best treatment results are achieved after antibacterial treatment of the valve.

High doses of amoxicillin, equivalent to those produced by 500- and 750-mg oral doses in humans (area under the plasma concentration-time curve), were effective against a penicillin-resistant strain of Streptococcus pneumoniae in an experimental respiratory tract infection in immunocompromised rats; this superior activity confirms the results of previous studies. An unexpected enhancement of amoxicillin's antibacterial activity in vivo against penicillin-resistant and -susceptible S. pneumoniae strains was observed when subtherapeutic doses of amoxicillin were coadministered with the beta-lactamase inhibitor potassium clavulanate. The reason for this enhancement was unclear since these organisms do not produce beta-lactamase. The differential binding of clavulanic acid and amoxicillin to penicillin-binding proteins may have contributed to the observed effects.

Perimandibular abscesses require drainage and removal of the underlying cause of infection. Traditionally drainage was established extraorally, but this can be associated with delay to treatment, because this is done under general anaesthesia. Between July 2008 and June 2013, 205 patients were initially either treated by immediate intraoral incision under local anaesthesia or extraoral incisions under general anaesthesia and prospectively evaluated. Predictors of treatment outcomes and complications were analysed. Fewer secondary procedures were needed for patients with primary treatment under general anaesthesia (p < 0.0001), but the overall stay in hospital was shorter after initial treatment under local anaesthesia (p < 0.0001, Odds Ratio (OR) 0.72, 95% CI 0.62-0.85). Postoperative complications occurred significantly more often under general anaesthesia (p < 0.0001, OR = 16.63, 95% CI 5.59-49.5). Significant prognostic variable was the administration of amoxicillin combined with clavulanic acid (p = 0.016, OR = 1.24, 95% CI 1.09-1.41) and adverse prognostic factors were infections with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (p = 0.048, OR 17.45, 95% CI 1.02-298) or diabetes mellitus (p = 0.003, OR 10.39, 95% CI 2.23-48.41). Amoxicillin combined with clavulanic acid showed a significant impact on the treatment course of patients with perimandibular abscesses.

Decreased susceptibility of pathogens to currently used agents for recurrent otitis media has provided the impetus for identifying new antimicrobial options.

Obligate anaerobes are closely involved in the pathogenesis of oral and focal infections. The objective of this study was to evaluate the susceptibility profiles of obligate anaerobes of oral origin to telithromycin (TLM), moxifloxacin (MXF), and other antibiotics that are commonly used in dentistry.

The antibacterial effect of amoxicillin-clavulanate in two formulations, pharmacokinetically enhanced 16:1 amoxicillin-clavulanate twice a day (b.i.d.) and standard 7:1 amoxicillin-clavulanate b.i.d., were studied in an in vitro pharmacokinetic model of infection. Five strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae and two of Haemophilus influenzae, all associated with raised MICs (2 to 8 mg/liter), were used. The antibacterial effect was measured over 24 h by the area under the bacterial kill curve (AUBKC) and the log change in viable count at 24 h (Delta24). A high 10(8) CFU/ml and low 10(6) CFU/ml initial inocula were used. Employing the Delta24 effect measure, the time above MIC (T>MIC) 50% maximum effect (EC(50)) for S. pneumoniae was in the range 21 to 28% with an 80% maximal response of 41 to 51%, for the AUBKC measure, the value was 26 to 39%, irrespective of inoculum. For H. influenzae, the T>MIC EC(50) was 28 to 37%, and the 80% maximum response was 32 to 48% for the Delta24 measure and 20 to 48% for AUBKC. The maximum response occurred at a T>MIC of 50 to 60% for both species and inocula. The S. pneumoniae data were analyzed by analysis of variance to assess the effect of inoculum, formulation, and MIC on antibacterial effect. Standard and enhanced formulations had different effects depending on MIC, with the standard formulation less effective at higher amoxicillin-clavulanate MICs. This is explained by the greater T>MICs of the enhanced formulation. Although resistant to amoxicillin-clavulanate by conventional breakpoints, S. pneumoniae and H. influenzae strains for which MICs are 2 or 4 mg/liter may well respond to therapy with pharmacokinetically enhanced formulation amoxicillin-clavulanate.

In this systematic review we present information relating to the effectiveness and safety of the following interventions: antibiotics (amoxicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid [co-amoxiclav], doxycycline, cephalosporins, macrolides; different doses, long-course regimens), antihistamines, decongestants (xylometazoline, phenylephrine, pseudoephedrine), saline nasal washes, steam inhalation, and topical corticosteroids (intranasal).

We used data from 152 patients of the placebo arm of a randomized trial of amoxicillin/clavulanate for exacerbations of mild to moderate COPD. Clinical response in relation to Anthonisen criteria and point-of-care serum C-reactive protein (CRP) tests (cutoff, 40 mg/L) was assessed with multivariate logistic regression analysis.
Eight patients with nine episodes of Augmentin-induced jaundice personally treated by the authors from March 1988 to February 1990 are described. A further 19 patients reported to ADRAC from May 1987 to November 1989 are discussed. All patient histories were carefully reviewed to ensure that there was a temporal relationship between the course of Augmentin and the onset of the hepatitic illness and that other causes of jaundice were reasonably excluded.
