Patients (n = ) with severe skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) were randomized to receive clinafloxacin or piperacillin-tazobactam (plus optional vancomycin for methicillin-resistant cocci), administered intravenously, with the option to switch to oral medication. Most patients had cellulitis, wound infections, or diabetic foot infections.

Skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI), also known as acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections, are a common reason for patients seeking inpatient and out-patient medical care. In the US, SSTI are responsible for at least 14 million outpatient visits a year, and almostinpatient by: Skin and soft tissue infections result from microbial invasion of the skin and its supporting structures.

Introduction. Skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) are very frequently encountered in clinical practice and are one of the most common sites of bacterial infections (Nichols ; Eron et al ; DiNubile and Lipsky ).These infections are also among the most common indications for antibiotic therapy and hospital admissions in the US ().

Combining tazobactam, a β-lactamase inhibitor, with the ureidopenicillin, piperacillin, successfully restores the activity of piperacillin against β-lactamase-producing bacteria.

Tazobactam has inhibitory activity, and therefore protects piperacillin against Richmond and Sykes types II, III, IV and V β-lactamases, staphylococcal penicillinase and extended-spectrum by: Guidelines for Treatment of Skin and Soft Tissue Infections.
