Shorter antibiotic therapy still effective for diabetic foot osteomyelitis
For patients with diabetic foot osteomyelitis, 6 weeks of antibiotic therapy seems as effective as 12 weeks of treatment, according to a study published in Diabetes Care. Alina Tone, M.D., from Gustave Dron Hospital in Tourcoing, France, and colleagues compared the effectiveness of 6 vs. 12 weeks of antibiotic therapy in 40 patients with nonsurgically-treated diabetic foot osteomyelitis enrolled in a prospective randomized trial.
