Abstract

This double-blind randomized study compared 3-day regimens of cefixime (400 mg once daily) and ofloxacin (200 mg twice a day) in the treatment of urinary tract infections in women. The respective clinical cure rates for the two groups of women were 89 and 92% after 7 days and 81 and 84% after 4 weeks. The respective microbiological cure rates (free of bacteriuria) for the two groups of women were 83 and 86% after 7 days and 77 and 80% after 28 days. A 3-day cefixime regimen seems to be as efficient as a 3-day ofloxacin regimen in the treatment of uncomplicated cystitis in women.
