    Dynamics of Pneumococcal
    Nasopharyngeal Colonization During the First Days of Antibiotic
    Treatment in Pediatric Patients.

    Pediatr
    Infect Dis J 17: 880-885, 1998.

     


    It is well-known that previous use of antibiotics leads to
    formation of resistant S pneumoniae in the nasopharynx
    of children.
    This study demonstrates that the appearance of resistant S
    pneumoniae in children treated with penicillin and ampicillin
    produces resistant strain in 3-4 days.
    This may contribute to the spread of resistant pneumococci.

    Methicillin-Resistant and Borderline Methicillin-Resistant Asymptomatic
    Staphylococcus aureus Colonization in Children without Identifiable
    Risk Factors.

    Pediatr
    Infect Dis J  18:410-414,
    1999

     

    Several recent
    reports have described the occurrence of community acquired MRSA in
    patients without risk factors. This
    study demonstrates the changes in the epidemiology of MRSA in the
    community.

     

    Carriers
    were isolated in children who do not have MRSA risk factors and who
    do not come in contact with MRSA or health care settings with the
    community. We can say that
    the carriage rate in MRSA in the community is low but not zero
    .
