  • antimicrobial
  • Results: The Surgical Infection Society and the Infectious Disease Society of America guidelines recommend a variety of single and combined antimicrobial therapies, including fluoroquinolone therapy, for prophylactic and definitive treatment of cIAIs with different severities. (umich.edu)
  • infants
  • While use of the acellular pertussis vaccine may reduce reactogenicity from pertussis vaccination, ( 2 ) waning protection after the last routine childhood dose of vaccine ( 13 ) has resulted in a reservoir of susceptible adolescents and adults capable of developing pertussis infection and passing it on to under- or unvaccinated infants.

  • hospital-acquired
  • The hospital-acquired isolates were stratified by ward (emergency, general medical or general surgical ward or intensive care unit (ICU)) to determine organism frequency and susceptibility patterns by hospital ward. (journals.co.za)
  • diagnosis
  • Diagnosis of Bordetella pertussis infection has been difficult due to the low sensitivity of culture. (asm.org)
  • Although recommendations for the use of the acellular pertussis vaccine in adolescents and young adults have been proposed ( 3 ), currently interruption of the spread of infection rests on early diagnosis and prompt treatment of persons with pertussis. (asm.org)
  • among
  • This will also allow for the development of infection control strategies to prevent the spread of this organism among post-partum units and nurseries. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • versus
  • In general, pertussis PCR has been found to be as or more sensitive than culture, although the reported sensitivity of various pertussis PCR assays versus serologic evidence of infection has ranged from 21 to 61% ( 11 , 19 , 21 ). (asm.org)
