Predictors of Poor Outcome in Neonates with Bacterial Sepsis Admitted to the University Hospital of the West Indies

Issue: 
Pages: 
80–4
Synopsis: 
Prematurity, very low birthweight and female gender are predictors of poor outcome in neonates with bacterial sepsis. Strategies aimed at decreasing morbidity and mortality in neonates with sepsis must include measures that will decrease the incidence of prematurity and low birthweight.

Antibiotic Resistance among Pathogens Causing Disease in Jamaican Children with HIV/AIDS

Issue: 
Pages: 
386–92
Synopsis: 
The prevalence and antibiotic susceptibility patterns of pathogens causing urinary tract infections (UTIs) and sepsis in a cohort of HIV positive Jamaican children was determined. Cotrimoxazole is a poor choice for empiric treatment of sepsis and UTIs in this cohort.

ABSTRACT

Objective: There are limited data regarding the antimicrobial resistance patterns of pathogens in children with HIV/AIDS from developing countries. We aimed to determine the prevalence and antibiotic susceptibility patterns of bacterial pathogens causing urinary tract infections (UTIs) and sepsis in a cohort of 219 HIV-infected Jamaican children.
