Effect of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease combined with ventilator-associated pneumonia on patient outcomes: A systematic review and meta-analysis

The purpose of the present systematic review and meta-analysis was to uncover whether chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) as a co-morbidity influences outcomes of patients with ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) compared to VAP alone and whether the development of VAP in patients with COPD is associated with poor outcome in comparison to COPD alone. An electronic search of the PubMed, Embase, Scopus, BioMed Central, CENTRAL and Google scholar databases for all types of studies…

Efficacy and Tolerability of Eravacycline in Bacteremic Patients with Complicated Intra-Abdominal Infection: A Pooled Analysis from the IGNITE1 and IGNITE4 Studies

Background: Eravacycline is a novel, fully synthetic fluorocycline antibiotic that was evaluated for the treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI) in two phase 3 clinical trials. The objective of this analysis was to evaluate the clinical cure and microbiologic response at the test-of-cure (TOC) visit and the safety of eravacycline in patients with cIAI and baseline bacteremia who received eravacycline versus comparators. Patients and Methods: Pooled data of patients with…
