would have resulted in modification of therapy for 13% of patients within 24 hours of positive blood culture. Routine implementation of MALDI-TOF analysis of blood culture samples could have a signficant impact on clinical management of this disease.

New Rapid Test for Antibiotic Resistance

A new test for extended spectrum betalactamase (ESBL) antibiotic-resistant bacteria can identify ESBL-resistant bacteria in blood cultures in 30 minutes compared to traditional tests which can take 24-48 hours.

New C. difficile Drug Candidate Does Not Disrupt Gut Flora

A study of the effects of a candidate drug for treatment of Clostridium difficile infection demonstrates that the drug causes only very modest changes in the normal gut flora with the exception of a signficant decrease in C. difficile.

Actual Versus Ideal Body Weight: No Difference in Antibiotic Outcomes

Using an adjusted body weight (based on ideal body weight) instead of actual body weight to determine dosage of the antibiotic daptomycin for treatment of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal (VRE) bacteremia in obese patients resulted in similar clinical outcomes but cost $1,200 per patient less.
