Detailed Study Description

The overall objective of the study is to determine if antibiotic therapy is beneficial in children with pneumonia who do not have a highly suspicious bacterial infection, such as in lobar pneumonia.

Secondary objective is to determine whether antibiotic use influence the microbial flora, including antibiotic resistance, in the airways in the short or medium long term.
