The Contagion® Antibiotics specialty page provides antibiotics-specific clinical news and articles, coverage from conferences and meetings, links to condition-specific resources, and videos and other content.
Gram-positive multidrug-resistant infections may be managed effectively with a single dose of long-acting lipoglycopeptide antibiotics in the outpatient setting; however, careful patient selection is important for maximizing the cost-benefit of these relatively expensive drugs.
Gram-negative organisms are showing up at higher rates in seriously ill pneumonia patients. What are the best antibiotics to prescribe, given the real risk of death and the need to avoid contributing to drug resistance?
Contagion® is a fully integrated news resource covering all areas of infectious disease. Through our website, quarterly journal, email newsletters, social media outlets, and Outbreak Monitor we provide practitioners and specialists with disease-specific information designed to improve patient outcomes and assist with the identification, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious diseases. Our mission is to assure that the healthcare community and public have the knowledge to make more informed choices and have a positive impact on patient outcomes.
