PMID:  520028     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Forty patients with post-operative chest infection were treated with cefuroxime, the majority receiving 750 mg intramuscularly 3-times daily for a mean period of 6.5 days. The results showed that 36 (90%) responded successfully and required no further antibiotic therapy. The mean time to improvement or cure was 3.6 days, and treatment was generally well tolerated.
