    A noninferiority margin based on the treatment effect of antibacterial drugs is required for noninferiority studies of community-acquired pneumonia. A quantitative estimate of treatment effect is generally determined from placebo-controlled trials, but, since the mid-to-late 1930s, no studies...

    Background: Lung ultrasonography has been advocated in diagnosing pediatric community-acquired pneumonia. However, its function in identifying necrotizing pneumonia, a complication, has not been explored. This study investigated the value of lung ultrasonography in diagnosing pediatric...

    There are few placebo-controlled, randomized, prospective clinical trials of antibiotic therapy for community- acquired pneumonia (CAP) in children. The reduction in mortality seen in early trials of antibacterials for treatment of bacterial CAP in adults and children was dramatic and led to the...

    Background: Pneumonia is a major complication of stroke, but effective prevention strategies are lacking. Since aspiration of oropharyngeal secretions is the primary mechanism for development of stroke-associated pneumonia, strategies that decrease oral colonization with pathogenic bacteria may...
