Fever can develop after fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FB) in about 2.5 - 16 % of adult patients. We evaluated the impact of oral amoxicillin/clavulanate (AC) on incidence of postbronchoscopic fever and pneumonia.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: oral amoxicillin/clavulanate 1g (875/125mg)
Drug: control
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: The Impact of Antibiotic Prophylaxis on Incidence of Post-bronchoscopy Fever and Change of Serum Cytokines

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The incidence of fever [ Time Frame: 24 hr after bronchoscopy ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    time frame for body temperature 24hr before and after bronchoscopy every 4hrs

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • change of serum cytokines level [ Time Frame: before bronchoscopy and 24hr after bronchoscopy ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Time frame for cytokine measurement 24hr before brochoscopy - 1hr after bronchosocpy - 24hr after brochoscopy

Enrollment: 241
Study Start Date: April 2008
Study Completion Date: February 2010
Primary Completion Date: January 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
