CONCLUSION: Automated surveillance was easy and useful for data entry and analysis. Surveillance data should be used for implementing preventive programs.

CONCLUSION: The treatment success among pregnant women with DRTB in Uganda was high despite a high prevalence of HIV co-infection.
CONCLUSION: B fragilis group harbouring the resistant genes may not be fully expressed phenotypically. Hence, detection of these genes by PCR might be necessary for a pertinent conclusion.
The use of antibiotics directly correlates with the increase in antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Targeting novel antibiotics to patients with multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens should enhance their durability and slow development of resistance. The discovery, development, and clinical adoption of pathogen-targeted antibiotics have been hampered by technical and regulatory challenges. Growing insights into bacterial physiology and mechanisms of resistance, innovative clinical trial designs,…
CONCLUSION: Incorporating a pharmacist-managed/administered PAST service into a community hospital’s antimicrobial stewardship program can improve the utilization of preferred antimicrobial therapy and help avoid use of more toxic, costly antimicrobials.
The contribution of bacterial infection to chronic low back pain and its treatment with antibiotics have generated considerable controversy in literature. If efficacious, antibiotics have the potential to transform the treatment of chronic low back pain in a significant subset of patients. Some microbiology studies of disc tissue from patients with CLBP have shown that bacteria are present, most likely due to infection, while others conclude they are absent or if found, it is due to surgical…
