Combining common antibiotics with additional compounds could make previously resistant bacteria more susceptible to the same antibiotics. 'Resuscitation' of existing antibiotics has the potential to make infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria easier to control, reducing antibiotic usage and levels of antimicrobial resistance, say scientists presenting their work at the Society for General Microbiology's Spring Conference in Dublin this week. Researchers from University College...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A recent study has discovered that short-term use of the antibiotic cefpodoxime for treatment of bladder infections (uncomplicated cystitis) in women did not meet criteria for achieving clinical cure compared to ciproflaxacin, a drug classified as fluoroquinolone antibiotics, that is under concern for overuse and resulting in an increase in resistance rates. While fluoroquinolone has minimal adverse drug reactions when used in a 3-day regimen and high efficacy rates,...
