Lancet article suggests increase in infective endocarditis tied to reduction in antibiotics use
from American Dental Association
A time-series study on antibiotic prophylaxis published online Nov. 18 in the Lancet noted a gradual increase in the incidence of infective endocarditis in England that appears to correspond with a reduction in antibiotic prophylaxis for IE prevention. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence began recommending cessation of antibiotic prophylaxis for IE prevention in England in March 2008.
