The Use of Ticarcillin in the Treatment of Acute Urinary Tract Infections
Infections caused by gram negative bacteria have become an increasing cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalised patients. The urinary tract is a common site from which serious infections can arise and disseminate to cause systemic infections. Infections of the urinary tract under these circumstances are commonly caused by hospital-acquired gram negative bacteria, many of which are resistant to frequently used antibiotics. Agents commonly used to treat these resistant organisms have potentially serious side effects, such as nephrotoxicity, ototoxicity, excessive salt loads and platelet abnormalities. In an effort to decrease these risks of side effects and to increase the effectiveness of such agents, research of newer antibiotics continues.
