Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Prophylactic and therapeutic options for reproductive infections are continually shifting. In this review, highlights from the recent literature of anti-infective drugs in obstetrics and gynecology are presented. Several articles offer new insights into the basic pathophysiology of common infections. Others provide novel strategies in prophylaxis for women with recurrent infections and for those undergoing surgical procedures. In the therapy arena, refinements in dosing schedules favor lower doses and shorter courses for some infections. Intriguing data regarding infrequently discussed infectious processes are presented. Finally, as new, more sophisticated agents flood the market, they are compared against the gold standards of treatment.
