Combination therapy with ceftolozane and tazobactam demonstrates a favourable safety profile in children with complicated urinary tract infection (cUTI) similar to that of meropenem and to the previously reported safety profile in adults with cUTI, a study has shown.
Researchers from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) have conducted the world’s first study to show that nightly use of low-concentration (0.05 percent) atropine eye drops may reduce the incidence of myopia in high-risk children.
Children who are allergic to peanuts may benefit from two immunotherapies, one oral and another epicutaneous or on-the-skin, which have demonstrated safety and efficacy in separate studies presented at the recent AAAAI 2023.
Treatment with the minimally invasive gastric peroral endoscopic pyloromyotomy (G-POEM) is not only safe and feasible but also effective for infants with congenital hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (CHPS), according to a recent study, noting acceptable clinical response in the short term.
