A three-day regimen of the antibiotic amoxicillin-clavulanate is not as effective as ciprofloxacin at treating an uncomplicated bladder infection in women, according to a study in the February 23 issue of JAMA.

Acute uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most commonly encountered bacterial infections in women, according to background information in the article. Management of these infections has been made more complicated in recent years by increasing antimicrobial resistance, which has led to increased use of alternative antibiotics. There have been no published studies on the efficacy of one such antibiotic, amoxicillin-clavulanate, in the treatment of acute cystitis (inflammation of the urinary bladder) in the current era of high-level amoxicillin resistance.
