'Give C. diff patients faecal transplants instead of antibiotics to boost chances of surviving'
Italian scientists looked at nearly 300 patients with the bacterial infection which plagues the gut. They found that, compared with antibiotics, the transplants boosted survival rates by a third.
ConclusionsMarked differences in risk for ESKD across types of donor-recipient relationship were observed for Asian, black, and white donors. These findings warrant further validation with more robust data to better inform clinical practice guidelines.
We present a reproducible although demanding surgical technique to perform a bipolar fresh osteochondral allograft transplantation of the patella and trochlea.
ConclusionsTherapeutic drug monitoring-guided meropenem may be a sound new therapeutic option in eradicating multidrug resistant Acinetobacter and offer a novel therapeutic option in the field of personalized medicine.
