Effects of Oral Steroid in Mycoplasma Pneumoniae Pneumonia

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is one of the most common causes of community-acquired pneumonia in children. The clinical course is typically self-limited and benign; however, rare cases of severe pneumonia can develop despite appropriate antibiotic therapy. The investigators aim to study the effects of prednisolone on severe M. pneumoniae pneumonia with lobar ...

The Norwegian Antibiotics for Pneumonia in Children Study

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 ...

PROcalcitonin Pneumonia / Pneumonitis Associated With ASPIration

There is actually no consensus in place defining for which patients with suspected inhalation pneumonia antibiotic treatment should be initiated and what the duration of this antibiotic treatment should be. This absence of recommendations results in excessive use of antibiotics, in emergence of multi-resistant strains and increase of costs. Several ...

Adjunctive Therapy of Andrographolid Sulfonatein Community Acquired Pneumonia

Adjunctive Therapy of AndrographolidSulfonate in Community Acquired Pneumonia: A Multicenter, Randomized,Double-blinded, Placebo Controlled Clinical Trial. The hypothesis is that combination therapy with Andrographolid Sulfonatein injection and antibacterial is significantly better than antibacterial alone in achieving clinical stability among hospitalized CAP patients.

Impact of Cotrimoxazole Use in Immunocompetent HIV Patients on Carriage of Antimicrobial Resistant Bacteria

Background Bacterial infections account for a large proportion of global morbidity and mortality. While antimicrobial drugs have helped save millions from the consequences of these infections, emerging antimicrobial resistance now threatens to reverse those gains. The HIV-epidemic renders large populations drastically more susceptible to bacterial infections, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa, ...

Effectiveness Trial of Day-care vs. Usual Care of Severe Pneumonia & Malnutrition in Children

Specific Objectives: To assess whether or not the Day care Approach for the management of severe childhood pneumonia with or without moderate acute malnutrition and/or severe underweight incorporated into the existing urban and rural Health Systems of Bangladesh is safe and effective. To implement the Day care Approach for the ...

Clinical Utility Of Genetic Screening For HLA-B*1301 On Susceptibility To Dapsone Hypersensitivity Syndrome

This Study is to evaluate the utility of prospective HLA-B1301 screening on the incidence of dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome (DHS) in 3130 previously Dapsone(DDS)-naive patients. Those patients include allergic cutaneous vasculitis, urticaria, psoriasis, acne, bullous skin diseases, sterile pustulosis, leprosy, pneumocystis pneumonia and any other patients who need dapsone administration. The ...

Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension or Interstitial Lung Disease at Altitude - Effect of Oxygen on Breathing and Sleep

Patients with pulmonary hypertension or with interstitial lung disease living below 800 m will be invited to participate in a randomized, cross-over field trial evaluating the hypotheses that: a), breathing and sleep during a 2 day sojourn at moderate altitude are impaired in comparison to low altitude; b), breathing and ...

Aerosolized Antibiotics in the Treatment of Ventilator Associated Pneumonia

Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) remains a serious problem in critically ill patients with an incidence of 8-28% and mortality ranging from 24-57%. A landmark study comparing eight days versus fifteen days of antibiotic therapy reported a pulmonary infection recurrence rate of 26-29%. Costs associated with VAP can reach up to ...

Addition of Tobramycin Inhalation in the Treatment of Ventilator Associated Pneumonia

Rationale: Approximately 9-27% of mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) develop ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). Patients in whom VAP develops have a higher mortality rate up to 50%, stay longer in the intensive care unit (ICU), and require more resources than those without the disease. Despite the availability ...
