Diabetic foot infection is a worldwide health problem is commonly encountered in daily practice. This study was conducted to identify the microbiological profile and antibiotic sensitivity patterns of causative agents identified from diabetic foot infections (DFIs). In addition, the assessment included probable risk factors contributing to infection of ulcers that harbour multidrug-resistant. g (4 g piperacillin and g tazobactam) IV every 6 hours for at least 7 days.  FDA-approved labeling recommends a 7- to day treatment course. For patients with nosocomial pneumonia and risk factors for gram-negative resistance or with a high mortality risk, add a second non-beta-lactam agent with antipseudomonal activity (i.e., quinolone, aminoglycoside, polymyxin.
FEVER IN NEUTROPENIC CANCER PATIENTS Piperacillin-tazobactam ( g 8 hourly) v/s. ceftazidime (2 g 8 hourly) plus amikacin (15 mg/kg IV/day) n=83 patients PIP/TAZ CEFTAZIDIME % 83% 90% 81% 80% 70% Success rate 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% Conclusion: Piperacillin-tazobactam is a safe and effective monotherapy Fever in Neutropenic . The recommended dosing for severe infections, other than nosocomial pneumonia, in patients with normal renal function, is g IV Q6h (a total daily dose of g, which comes to a total daily dose of 12 g of piperacillin and g of tazobactam) for days.

Piperacillin/tazobactam: an updated review of its use in the treatment of bacterial infectionsCited by: Previous studies have shown that ertapenem is equally effective as piperacillin-tazobactam (PTZ) for the treatment of complicated IAIs (cIAIs) [3, 6–8], supporting the notion that targeted enterococcal therapy may not be necessary in polymicrobial by: 1.
Therefore, the treatment of polymicrobial infections caused by piperacillin susceptible organisms and ß-lactamase producing organisms susceptible to Piperacillin and Tazobactam for Injection should not require the addition of another antibiotic.
Piperacillin and Tazobactam for Injection may be useful as presumptive therapy in the indicated. Piperacillin and tazobactam (Zosyn) is a combination of two antibiotics prescribed to treat a variety of bacterial infections such as pneumonia, appendicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, E.
coli infection, cellulitis, and postpartum endometriosis. Review side effects, drug interactions, dosage, and pregnancy safety information prior to taking. Although piperacillin sodium and tazobactam sodium also may be effective in the treatment of infections caused by non-b-lactamase-producing bacteria susceptible to piperacillin alone, some clinicians suggest that the fixed-combination preparation be reserved for use in the treatment of infections caused by, or suspected of being caused by, b.
lactamase-producing bacteria. The combination of piperacillin and tazobactam in a ratio of is effective in the treatment of moderate to severe polymicrobial infections including intra -abdominal, skin and soft-tissue and is approved and marketed for the treatment of a number of infections caused.
Summary Background Data. Ertapenem has a pharmacokinetic profile and antimicrobial spectrum that support the potential for use as a once-a-day agent for the treatment of common mixed aerobic and anaerobic infections.
Key Points. Question Can piperacillin-tazobactam be used as carbapenem-sparing therapy in patients with bloodstream infections caused by ceftriaxone-resistant Escherichia coli or Klebsiella pneumoniae?. Findings In this noninferiority randomized clinical trial that included patients with E coli or K pneumoniae bloodstream infection and ceftriaxone resistance, the day mortality rate for.
Economic Considerations of Bacterial Infections. Costs associated with antibacterial treatment of moderate to severe infections include drug acquisition costs, preparation and administration, monitoring, hospitalisation, adverse effects, laboratory tests, treatment failure and the development of.

Over the past decade, two relatively broad-spectrum β-lactam/β-lactamase inhibitor compounds, piperacillin–tazobactam (iv) and amoxicillin–clavulanate (orally), have been among the most commonly used agents for these infections, both by practicing clinicians and in comparative research studies.
1, 8, 15, 18–21 The results of this study. How to use Piperacillin-Tazobactam Vial. This medication is given by injection into a vein as directed by your doctor, usually every 6 hours.
It should be injected slowly over at least 30 minutes. Piperacillin Sodium is the sodium salt of piperacillin, a broad-spectrum semisynthetic, ampicillin-derived ureidopenicillin antibiotic with bactericidal cillin binds to and inactivates penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs), enzymes located on the inner membrane of the bacterial cell wall, resulting in the weakening of the bacterial cell wall and cell lysis.
Zosyn Injection is a combination medicine used to treat a variety of conditions such as urinary tract infections, lower respiratory tract infections, intra-abdominal infections, skin and skin structure infections, etc. caused by susceptible bacteria.

Piperacillin and tazobactam for injection is a combination product consisting of a penicillin-class antibacterial, piperacillin, and a β-lactamase inhibitor, tazobactam, indicated for the treatment of patients with moderate to severe infections caused by susceptible isolates of the designated bacteria in the conditions listed below.
g IV q6hr (totaling g [12 g piperacillin/ g tazobactam]) for days. Female Pelvic Infections. Indicated in treatment of postpartum endometritis or pelvic inflammatory disease caused by beta-lactamase producing isolates of E coli. g IV q6hr (totaling g [12 g piperacillin/ g tazobactam]) for days.
Piperacillin is one of β-lactam antibiotic which is widely useful in the dealing of polymicrobial infections and infections that are hospital-acquired (Tamma et al., ;Tsai et al., ).
Kelly C. Wade, Daniel K. Benjamin Jr., in Infectious Diseases of the Fetus and Newborn (Seventh Edition), PK-PD and Clinical Implications for Dosing. Piperacillin-tazobactam, either alone or combined with aminoglycosides, has been used successfully for the treatment of bacteriologically proven neonatal infections .Neonatal PK knowledge and clinical experience is limited and dosing.
polymicrobial in nature in which P. Aeruginosa and S. Aureus were identified to be the most common agents and there was a low proportion of anaerobic organisms. Vancomycin, Piperacillin–Tazobactam or Imipenem ap-pear to be suitable agents for empirical therapy according to antimicrobial susceptibility data.
Clinicians are also en. Invasive Listeria monocytogenes infections carry a high mortality despite antibiotic treatment. The rareness of the infection makes it difficult to improve antibiotic treatment through randomized clinical trials. This observational study investigated clinical features and outcome of invasive L.
monocytogenes infections including the efficacy of empiric and definitive antibiotic therapies. Piperacillin-tazobactam is not approved by the FDA for use in infants less than 2 months of age.
However, it has been considered for neonates with proven bacterial infections, particularly those infected with difficult to treat polymicrobial sepsis or infections due to P. aeruginosa or K. pneumoniae.In total, 44 E.
coli were isolated in the ITT patient group (including isolates from polymicrobial infections), with 84% susceptibility to piperacillin–tazobactam, and MIC 50 and MIC 90 values of 4 and mg/L (range 1– mg/L), respectively.The broad-spectrum antibiotics, such as Pip/Taz, play an essential role in the empirical therapy of serious infections .Pip /taz is a combination of β-lactam/β-lactamase inhibitor and has a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity including most Gram-positive and Gram-negative aerobic bacteria and anaerobic bacteria and is effective for many polymicrobial infections .
