  • Guideline concordant therapy: 1) B-lactam + macrolide or fq. 2)FQ + Clindamycin/Vancomycin/Aminoglycoside.FQ: Levofloxacin,Gatifloxacin,Moxifloxacin.The use of B-lactam with FQ associated with increased mortality
  • Rate of 3rd gen ceph with good antipneumococcal activtiy increased during the study period from 35.2% to 86-95%During 1997-2000, 60-65% of pts treated with b-lactam also treated with macrolide as part of empiric tx
  • Failure to include a macrolide in the initial treatment of pts with bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia was an independent risk factor of death

  • Empiric TherapyChoosing The Right Combination
    • Retrospective observational study
    • Jan 1999 – Dec 2002
    • 172 subjects having rad and ICD-9 diagnosis of CAP
    • Abx administered 1st 48hrs of admission
    • 33% w/in 4 hrs of presentation
    • Multivariate logistic regression model to assess 30 day mortality between B-lactam and FQ VS. other guideline therapy
    • B-lactam + FQ (30%)
    • B-lactam + Macrolide (17.2%)
    • Other regimens (11.4%)

  • Empiric TherapyChoosing The Right Combination

  • Addition of macrolide to B-Lactam-Based Empiric Treatment
    • Retrospective observational study
    • 1991-2000
    • 409 pts w/ S. pneumoniae bacteremic pneumonia
    • B-lactam +/- other antibiotic
    • Pts observed from time of dx of bacteremia until death or d/c
    • 238 (58%) received B-lactam + macrolide
    • 171 (42%) received B-lactam +/- other abx
    CID 2003;36:389-95
  • Addition of macrolide to B-Lactam-Based Empiric Treatment
    • Pts who did not receive a macrolide
    • HIV
    • Hematologic malignancies
    • Neutropenia
    • Nosocomial infection
    • Pts who received a macrolide
    • Shock at time of presentation
    • Admitted to ICU
    • Univariate analysis in hospital mortality
    • Shock (p<.0001)
    • Abx other than macrolide (p<.001)
    • Infxns R to PCN&Erythro (p=.02)
    • ICU admission (p<0.0001)
    CID 2003;36:389-95
  • Addition of macrolide to B-Lactam-Based Empiric Treatment
    • Association btwn initial macrolide therapy and a lower in-hospital mortality rate remained sig after exclusion of pts who died </= 48 hrs p admission
    • Macrolide and PCN resistance
    • More virulent strains
    • Resistance to macrolide negates the beneficial effect of macrolides
    • Pts infected w/ resistant strains had a more serious disease
