Background: Otitis media is one of the most common infections in children. Recently it was noticed that there is a marked increase in relapse of otitis media in children. Therefore, this study conducted to investigate microorganisms causing otitis media in children and to assess their sensitivity to various groups of antimicrobial. Patients and Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on positive cultures taken from 173 children aged below 15 years, who attended as outpatient or inpatient at Princess Rahmah Hospital between January and December/2008. The obtained data were analyzed and the results were tabulated. Results: A total of 173 isolates were recovered from cultures obtained from children patients. The male and female isolates ratio was (1.24:1.0). The most frequent pathogen found was S. aureus (68.2%), followed by Streptococcus spp. (12.1%), H. influenzae (9.3%), Psedomonas spp (6.9%) and Klebsiella spp. (3.9%). The susceptibility rate of S. aureus was recorded the highest (95.9%) for vancomycin, and the lowest susceptibility rate (31.8%) was recorded for oxacillin. Conclusion: S. aureus was the main isolate of otitis media in children, which almost all isolates were susceptible to cefotaxime, ciprofloxacin and vancomycin. Overall oxacillin resistance was near 67%. This information should be considered when empirical therapy is recommended or prescribed for children with otitis media. Source

Background: Knowledge of antimicrobial susceptibility patterns is required to prescribe empirical therapy and formulate guidelines for the treatment of urinary tract infections. This study assesses the etiology and antimicrobial susceptibility of the main uropathogens in Jordanian children. Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on a positive urine cultures taken from children aged below 15 years, who attended as outpatient clinics or inpatient at Princess Rahmah Hospital between January and December/2008. The obtained data analysed and the results were tabulated. Results: A total of 597 isolates were recovered from children with lower urinary tract infections. Uropathogens were isolated more in females (82%) than in males. The most frequent pathogen found was Escherichia coli (72.9%), followed by Klebsiella spp. (19.9%), Proteus spp. (3%), Pseudomonas spp (2%), Staphylococcus aureus (1%), Streptococcus spp (0.7%), and Enterobacter spp. (0.5%). The highest susceptibility rate of E. coli was 100% to both amikacin and ceftriaxone, followed by cefotaxime (89.4%), ciprofloxacin (85.5%), and gentamicin (83.9%). Whereas the lowest susceptibility rates were 27.5%, 21.6% and 16.0% to cotrimoxazole, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and ampicillin respectively. Conclusions: E. coli was the main uropathogen in children patients. The most of E. coli isolates were susceptible to amikacin, ceftriaxone, cefotaxime, ciprofloxacin and gentamicin. Overall cotrimoxazole, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and ampicillin resistance rate was near 75% or more, and this rate was not affected according to the type of urinary infection. This information should be considered when empirical therapy is recommended or prescribed for children with Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in Jordan. © 2011 DAR Publishers/ University of Jordan.

The present study was conducted to investigate antimicrobial resistant pattern of Escherichia coli (E. coli) strains isolated from clinical specimens of Jordanian pediatric patients during the period from January to December 2008. A total of 444 E. coli strains were isolated from clinical specimens and tested for their susceptibility to different antimicrobial drugs. Overall, high resistance rate was observed for ampicillin (84%), followed by amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (74.3%), cotrimoxazole (71%), nalidixic acid (47.3%), cephalothin (41%). Lower resistance rates were observed for amikacin (0%) followed by Cefotaxime (11%), Ceftriaxone (11.7%), ciprofloxacin (14.5%), Norfloxacin (16.5%), gentamicin (17.3%) cephalexin (20.9%), Ceftazidime (22.5%), cefixime (29.6%), and cefaclor (32.8%). Ampicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and cotrimoxazole were found to be ineffective at in vitro inhibition of the E. coli of pediatric origin. Amikacin was highly effective for E. coli with susceptibility rate of 100%. The majority of E. coli strains were susceptible to third generation cephalosporins and fluoroquinolones. Source

Objective: To investigate microorganisms causing bacteremia in Jordanian children and to assess their sensitivity to various groups of antimicrobials. Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on positive blood cultures taken from 378 children aged below 15 year, who sought medical attention at Princess Rahmah Hospital between January and December/2008. Results: Out of 4475 tested blood samples, 378 isolates were recovered from blood cultures. The male to female isolate ratio was (1.26:1.0). The most frequent pathogen found was Staphylococcus aureus (86.2%), followed by Klebsiella spp. (9%), Escherichia coli (1.9%), Streptococcus spp. (1.9%), Pseudomonas spp. (0.8%), and Acinetobacter sp. was found in only one culture (0.3%). The susceptibility rate of S. aureus was recorded the highest (99.6%) for vancomycin, and the lowest susceptibility rate (3.2%) was recorded for aztreonam. Conclusions: Staphylococcus aureus was the main isolate in bacteremic children, with all isolates demonstrating susceptibility to vancomycin. Overall, aztreonam resistance was near 97%, and this rate was not affected by sex and blood isolate type. This information should be considered when empirical therapy is recommended or prescribed for children with bacteremia. Source

The concept of logistics systems Lies in the coordination of productive activities, financial, economic and information associated with each other for computing systems technology. The first appearance of these systems was during World War Two to resolve the issue of strategic effects in the field of industry and military affairs as well as to solve the problem of transportation in order to provide troops with military equipment and fuel. The technological logistics system is: Support for these systems, in terms of information and computerized. Lies in two areas: the first is a computer support for decision-making in the logistics systems specific type, and the second lies in the logistical and informational self-management that is implemented through the use of a package of software. This paper aims to provide a general model of the logistical systems and provide study in the application of this system in the area pharmaceutical industry management, we have found that strong information usage lead to strong productivity that aimed to increase revenue from productivity and reduce costs production leading eventually of the work of the technological logistics. © 2005-2011 JATIT & LLS All rights reserved.
