PMID 8254902

Abstract

We studied clinical effects of ceftazidime (CAZ) alone or in combination with aspoxicillin (ASPC) against various infections in obstetric and gynecological patients. 1. Obstetric and gynecological patients (n = 91) with various infectious diseases were treated with CAZ alone (1-2 g x 2/day, n = 54) or in combination with ASPC (1-2 g x 2/day, n = 37) administered via drip infusion. 2. CAZ alone or in combination with ASPC was efficacious in 50 out of 54 (92.6%) or 33 out of 36 (91.7%) patients, respectively. Overall, the efficacy ratios were 46/49 (93.9%) against gynecological infections, 21/25 (84.0%) against perinatal infections and 16/16 (100%) against other infections. The bacteriological efficacy ratio was 21/21 (100%) while clinical effectiveness in cases in which causative agents were known was observed in 20 out of 21 (95.2%) patients. In patients who had not respond to other treatments, CAZ alone, and in combination with ASPC were effective in 15 out of 16 (93.8%) and 6 out of 8 (75.0%) patients, respectively, hence the overall efficacy ratio was 21/24 (87.5%). 3. Abnormal values in clinical laboratory tests were obtained in 3 out of 91 (3.3%) patients. No other adverse side effects were observed in any of the patients.
