Impact of amoxicillin therapy on resistance selection in patients with community-acquired lower respiratory tract infections: a randomized, placebo-controlled study.

Abstract:

Objectives

To determine the effect of amoxicillin treatment on resistance selection in patients with community-acquired lower respiratory tract infections in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial.

Methods

Patients were prescribed amoxicillin 1 g, three times daily (n=52) or placebo (n=50) for 7 days. Oropharyngeal swabs obtained before, within 48 h post-treatment and at 28–35 days were assessed for proportions of amoxicillin-resistant (ARS; amoxicillin MIC ≥2 mg/...
