Date:10/29/2013

CHERTSEY, Angleterre, October 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Une infection à Clostridium difficile (ICD) est potentiellement fatale et dépasse le SARM en tant que cause principale de d'infections acquises en milieu hospitalier[1],[2]

L'European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) a publié de nouvelles directives recommandant la fidaxomicine pour tous les patients souffrant d'une ICD et pouvant suivre un traitement antibiotique par voie orale. Les directives recommandent spécifiquement la fidaxomicine en tant que traitement de première intention des patients ICD présentant une première récurrence ou un risque de récurrence et chez les patients souffrant de multiples récurrences d'ICD. Les directives recommandent également la fidaxomicine chez les patients souffrant de maladies graves et d'ICD non sérieuse.[3]

L'ICD est une des formes les plus courantes de diarrhée associées aux antibiotiques et les cas les plus graves peuvent entraîner des opérations des intestins voire un décès.[4] Les patients hospitalisés souffrant d'une ICD sont trois fois plus susceptibles de décéder en hôpital (ou un mois après l'apparition de l'infection) que ceux sans ICD.[5],[6] La récurrence est un problème majeur dans le traitement de l'ICD. 25 % des patients ICD souffrent d'une récurrence en l'espace d'un mois [7],[8],[9] et les patients qui ont déjà eu une récurrence courent un risque de 40 % d'un nouvel épisode d'ICD.[10]

« Un des problèmes les plus importants pour une gestion optimale de l'ICD est la récurrence. Par conséquent, la réduction considérable de la récurrence de la maladie avec DIFICLIR comparé à la vancomycine
