  • Because the pathophysiology of invasive GAS infection is largely toxin mediated, the use of a protein synthesis inhibitor (eg, clindamycin) offers a theoretical advantage.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Recent interest in the pathophysiology of this disorder has focused on the role of streptococcal pyrogenic exotoxins (SPEs), extracellular products of group A streptococci that mediate not only scarlatiniform-like rashes but also multi-organ damage and[antimicrobe.org]

Prevention

  • This is done to prevent the occurrence of bacterial endocarditis. Antimicrobial regimens recommended for the prevention of bacterial endocarditis are entirely distinct from regimens used in the prevention of ARF ( 14 ).[antimicrobe.org]
  • A patient's recovery from anaerobic infection depends on prompt and proper treatment according to the following principles: (1) neutralizing toxins produced by anaerobes, (2) preventing local bacterial proliferation by changing the environment, and (3[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • However with rising antibiotic resistance, it is becoming more important to determine the source of infection or even potential source of infection to quickly and effectively prescribe the appropriate treatment and preventative measures. Sources:[mrsaidblog.com]
