10. Penicillin to prevent recurrent leg cellulitis.

Penicillin to prevent recurrent leg cellulitis. BACKGROUND: Cellulitis of the leg is a common bacterial infection of the skin and underlying tissue. We compared prophylactic low-dose penicillin with placebo for the prevention of recurrent cellulitis. METHODS: We conducted a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial involving patients with two or more episodes of cellulitis of the leg who were recruited in 28 hospitals in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Randomization was performed according (...) to a computer-generated code, and study medications (penicillin [250 mg twice a day] or placebo for 12 months) were dispensed by a central pharmacy. The primary outcome was the time to a first recurrence. Participants were followed for up to 3 years. Because the risk of recurrence was not constant over the 3-year period, the primary hypothesis was tested during prophylaxis only. RESULTS: A total of 274 patients were recruited. Baseline characteristics were similar in the two groups. The median time

In total, 1,922 patients (59%) redeemed penicillin prescriptions before the index date and 2,292 (70%) redeemed any type of antibiotic prescription. Penicillin use was associated with an increased risk of MS (odds ratio = 1.21, 95% confidence interval: 1.10, 1.27). Use of any type of antibiotic was similarly associated with an increased risk of MS (odds ratio = 1.41, 95% confidence interval: 1.29, 1.53). The odds ratios for different types of antibiotics

Clinical Bottom Line It appears that patients who have a severe type 1 hypersensitivity reaction to penicillin do not have an increased risk of anaphylaxis to cephalosporins. This evidence may be skewed however by adherence to the recommendation not to give cephalosporins to individuals with a history of penicillin anaphylaxis.

Brief communication: tolerability of meropenem in patients with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity to penicillins. BACKGROUND: Although clinicians avoid giving meropenem to patients with penicillin allergy because of potential cross-reactivity, the rate of cross-reactivity between penicillins and meropenem has not been prospectively determined. OBJECTIVE: To assess the tolerability of meropenem in patients with documented penicillin allergy. DESIGN: Prospective skin testing and antibiotic challenge (...) . SETTING: Allergy units of 2 Italian medical centers. PATIENTS: 104 consecutive participants with immediate hypersensitivity reactions to penicillins and positive skin test results to at least 1 penicillin reagent. MEASUREMENTS: Skin tests to meropenem and, if results were negative, challenges with escalating doses of meropenem. RESULTS: One participant (0.9% [95% CI, 0.02% to 5.2%]) had a positive intradermal test result to meropenem. The remaining 103 participants with negative skin test results
