Antibiotic Therapy of Nosocomial Pneumonia

S.M. Nedashkivsky, S.I. Babak, O.A. Galushko


To analyze the efficacy and safety of linezolid in the treatment of nosocomial pneumonia there was conducted a study involved 32 patients as a whole, in which treatment of the disease gave reason to suspect MRSA as one of the possible pathogens. Depending on the applied antibiotic therapy patients were randomized into two groups: 1st one — 16 patients who received intravenous linezolid 600 mg every 12 hours. In these patients we used the linezolid preparation of Ukrainian production — Linelid; 2nd one — 16 patients who received vancomycin 15 mg/kg every 12 hours. It is found that the use of linezolid in patients with nosocomial pneumonia, caused by MRSA, promotes more pronounced clinical improvement and a more rapid improvement of the patients’ state compared with vancomycin. Use of Linelid was effective and was not accompanied by clinically significant adverse reactions.
