|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01531023|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : February 10, 2012
Last Update Posted : October 31, 2016
The prevalence of extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) producing bacteria found in urine sample cultures has been increasing over the past decades.
The study hypothesis is to assess the clinical and microbiological outcome of pivmecillinam treatment of ESBL producing E. coli and K. Pneumoni, as well as to observe the clinical and microbiological outcome of the same group of bacteria treated with other antiinfectious agents.
Samples are gathered in primary care setting.

ESBL producing E. coli bacteria
Group of patients with identified ESBL producing E.coli in a urine sample taken in a primary care setting.
Non-ESBL E.coli urinary tract infection
E.coli bacteria found in the setting of a urinary tract infection in a primary care setting where ESBL producing bacteria are not found.
- Number of days until symptomatic resolution [ Time Frame: Two weeks after finishing the primary antibiotic treatment ]Number of days from the start of treatment that the patient feels completely free of urinary tract symptoms Number of days after start of antibiotic treatment with mecillinam when the patient feels free of symptoms from the urinary tract
- Number of patients with ESBL producing bacteria detected in a urine sample taken two weeks after finishing initial treatment [ Time Frame: Two weeks after end of initial treatment ]
- Number of patients who received a second treatment regime in the follow-up period [ Time Frame: 2 weeks after end of initial treatment ]Number of patients who received a secondary antibiotic treatment to obtain clinical cure.
