Skin and Skin Structure Infections Are the Second Most Common Diagnoses for Which an Antibiotic Is Used in the Hospital Setting
Date:6/22/2009

Most of These Infections Are Treated Empirically While Just Under One-Third Are Documented

Arlington Medical Resources Introduces a New Executive Dashboard for The Hospital Antibiotic Market Guide

MALVERN, Pa., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Arlington Medical Resources (AMR), a provider of premier market intelligence for the pharmaceutical and diagnostic imaging industries, finds that for the July - December 2008 time period, skin and skin structure infections continue to be the second most common diagnoses for which an antibiotic is used in the hospital setting. Antibiotic use for these infections is up 3 percent compared to the January - June 2008 time period. Lower respiratory infections continue to rank first with 29 percent of therapy courses even though this represents a 4 percent decrease from the previous audit period.

The newly released U.S. edition of The Hospital Antibiotic Market Guide also finds that skin and skin structure infections are most commonly treated empirically while just under one-third are documented. Vancomycin, cefazolin, piperacillin/tazobactam and clindamycin, all in injectable form, are routinely used to treat these infections regardless of the intent -- empiric or documented.

"Among the documented courses to treat MRSA associated skin and skin structure infections, vancomycin (45 percent of therapy courses) is used more often followed by clindamycin (17 percent of therapy courses) and linezolid (16 percent of therapy courses)," stated Joyce Wedemeyer, product director at AMR.

The Hospital Antibiotic Market Guide now includes an executive level dashboard that allows the user to manipulate and download data to analyze indications or diagnoses, examine specific antibiotics and their usage across all indications and specialties and study prescribing patterns by physician specialty.
