KOL-Index: 37 BACKGROUND: The need for alternative antimicrobial therapy for recurrent and persistent acute otitis media (AOM) in children has raised interest in assessing the efficacy and safety of fluoroquinolones for treatment of these infections. METHODS: In an evaluator-blinded, active-comparator, noninferiority, multicenter study, children (6 months to <5 years) were randomized 1:1 to receive ...

KOL-Index: 34 Diagnostic criteria for acute otitis media have become more precise with recent improvements in the otoscope and emphasis on meticulous aural toilet and careful observation of the ossicular landmarks, contour and mobility of the tympanic membrane. The treatment of the acute phase of the disease poses few therapeutic difficulties. There are many alternative antibacterial agents which have ...
KOL-Index: 32 BACKGROUND: High dose amoxicillin is recommended for the initial treatment of children with acute otitis media (AOM), particularly patients at risk for having drug-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae. Single dose azithromycin (30 mg/kg) is considered an alternative agent for the treatment of AOM. OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical efficacy and safety of single dose azithromycin with that of ...
KOL-Index: 27 OBJECTIVE: Senior medical students (n = 2,433) from 21 accredited medical schools in New England and the mid-Atlantic states were surveyed to evaluate their knowledge of and compliance with principles of judicious antimicrobial use, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and others. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A self-administered questionnaire with six vignettes on the clinical management ...

KOL-Index: 22 BACKGROUND: During respiratory syncytial virus season, many children present to pediatric offices and urgent care medical facilities with cough, tachypnea, intercostal retraction, wheezing, as well as disturbed appetite and sleep. Identification of the responsible viral pathogen is quite difficult because several pathogens can produce similar signs and symptoms. METHODS: Nasopharyngeal ...

KOL-Index: 20 Case description: We present an unusual case of a patient that developed anaplastic thyroid cancer 40 years after treatment for papillary thyroid cancer. The patient presented with locoregional recurrence and distant metastasis. Tumor genotyping identified a BRAF V600E mutation. The patient was treated with drugs targeting BRAF V600E and MEK (vemurafenib and cobimetinib, respectively). The ...

KOL-Index: 20 OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a single dose of amoxicillin administered to a symptomatic child with confirmed strep throat might allow the child to return to school as little as 12 hours later. METHODS: We enrolled 111 evaluable children with sore throat plus a positive streptococcal rapid antigen detection test (RADT) as well as a positive result for group A Streptococci (GAS). After ...
KOL-Index: 19 Background:To evaluate the effects of an amino acid–based formula (AAF) with synbiotics on growth and tolerance in healthy infants. The hypoallergenicity of this AAF with synbiotics was evaluated in subjects with cow’s milk allergy (CMA).Methods:Study 1: 115 full-term, healthy infants randomly received an AAF with synbiotics or a commercially available AAF for 16 wk. Subjects’ weight, ...

KOL-Index: 19 Two independent, investigator-blinded, multicenter, randomized clinical trials, one of which included microbiologic evaluation of middle-ear fluid obtained by use of tympanocentesis, compared the efficacy and safety of two oral antibiotics, cefuroxime axetil suspension and amoxicillin/clavulanate suspension, in the treatment of children 3 months to 12 years old diagnosed with acute otitis ...
