Direct detection of bacterial biofilms on the middle-ear mucosa of children with chronic otitis media. Chronic otitis media (OM) is a common pediatric infectious disease. Previous studies demonstrating that metabolically active bacteria exist in culture-negative pediatric middle-ear effusions and that experimental infection with Haemophilus influenzae in the chinchilla model of otitis media results in the formation of adherent mucosal biofilms suggest that chronic OM may result from a mucosal (...) biofilm infection.To test the hypothesis that chronic OM in humans is biofilm-related.Middle-ear mucosa (MEM) biopsy specimens were obtained from 26 children (mean age, 2.5 [range, 0.5-14] years) undergoing tympanostomy tube placement for treatment of otitis media with effusion (OME) and recurrent OM and were analyzed using microbiological culture, polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based diagnostics, direct microscopic examination, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and immunostaining.

Pneumococcal capsular polysaccharides conjugated to protein D for prevention of acute otitis media caused by both Streptococcus pneumoniae and non-typable Haemophilus influenzae: a randomised double-blind efficacy study. Acute otitis media is one of the most commonly-diagnosed childhood infections. This study assessed the efficacy of a novel vaccine that contained polysaccharides from 11 different Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes each conjugated to Haemophilus influenzae-derived protein D (...) in prevention of acute otitis media.4968 infants were randomly assigned to receive either pneumococcal protein D conjugate or hepatitis A vaccine at the ages of 3, 4, 5, and 12-15 months and were followed-up until the end of the second year of life. Middle-ear fluid was obtained for bacteriological culture and serotyping in children who presented with abnormal tympanic membrane or presence of middle-ear effusion, plus two predefined clinical symptoms.

Wait-and-see prescription for the treatment of acute otitis media: a randomized controlled trial. Acute otitis media (AOM) is the most common diagnosis for which antibiotics are prescribed for children. Previous trials that have evaluated a "wait-and-see prescription" (WASP) for antibiotics, with which parents are asked not to fill the prescription unless the child either is not better or is worse in 48 hours, have excluded children with severe AOM. None of these trials were conducted
