Active Ingredients: Amoxicillin
Similarly, 19 33. A total of seven 12. Ceftriaxone 1. Of the 12 isolates showing decreased susceptibility to penicillin G, eight exhibited reduced sensitivity to macrolides and 10 were resistant to cefpodoxime predominantly serotype 14.
Discussion Using a comprehensive surveillance system, we have investigated the epidemiology of IPD among Austrian hospital inpatients up to 5 years of age.
This study represents the first systematic investigation of this kind in Austria. During the study period, the mean annual incidence of IPD was 14 per 100 000 population, which is comparable to that found in the rest of Europe except Finland, but lower than that reported from the USA and Canada.
Indeed, in the present study a quarter of all reported cases had received antibiotics prior to sample taking, indicating a considerable rate of empirical antibiotic treatment of febrile conditions in Austria.
IPD studies in North America have reported less severe outpatient bacteraemia more frequently.
Moreover, this age group is more prone to suffer from meningitis than older children. As described by others 23, 24, 27 we observed a typical biphasic seasonal pattern, with an autumn rise of incidence followed by a drop in midwinter and a second rise in late winter.
Since no long-term follow-up is available, the prognosis and percentage of resolution of sequelae is not known in about a third of the reported meningitis cases.
The Austrian data promise a somewhat better coverage rate by the 7-vPc vaccine than observed in neighbouring countries. Previously, Austria had not been considered a high-risk country in terms of antimicrobial resistance in S.
The rate of intermediate penicillin G resistance in pneumococci, as documented by the present study, is significantly higher than that reported recently in Germany. However, when interpreting these data, one needs to consider that a limitation of this investigation is the low number of isolates tested.
Nevertheless, it appears exceedingly important to raise awareness and strengthen these data by continuing surveillance. When analysing the S.
There is evidence suggesting that the use of conjugate vaccines will reduce the need for antibiotics and the subsequent spread of antimicrobial-resistant pneumococci.
Above all, one must not forget that the prognosis for meningitis caused by S. The increasingly high level of antimicrobial resistance among invasive isolates considerably amplifies the potential impact of a childhood pneumococcal vaccination programme in Austria.
