Disease relevance of Cellulitis


High impact information on Cellulitis

  • Dissecting cellulitis of the scalp: response to isotretinoin [6].
  • RESULTS: Patients who received G-CSF did not have an earlier resolution of clinically defined cellulitis (p=0.57) [7].
  • Cefoxitin has activity against ampicillin-resistant H influenzae and would be an alternative in treating H influenzae cellulitis [8].
  • The activity of WCK 771 was superior to those of moxifloxacin, vancomycin, and linezolid in a mouse cellulitis model of infection caused by one MSSA and two MRSA strains, with effective doses of 2.5 and 5 mg/kg for the MSSA strain and 10-fold higher effective doses for MRSA strains [9].
  • METHODS: Human recombinant IL-8 (rhIL-8) labeled with (131)I (specific activity, 0.4-0.7 MBq [11-18 microCi] (131)I/microg IL-8) was injected intravenously into 8 diabetic patients with active foot infections and evidence of osteomyelitis, 2 patients with successfully treated osteomyelitis, and 1 patient with cellulitis of the thumb [10].
