ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study which found that antibiotic prophylaxis reduces all-cause and infection-related mortality in patients with afebrile neutropenia after chemotherapy, but increases adverse events. Published and unpublished randomized controlled trials (RCT) or quasi-RCTs in any language that compared antibiotic therapy with placebo, no intervention, or other antibiotics for prophylaxis of bacterial infections in patients with afebrile neutropenia after chemotherapy for malignant disease were studied.
