Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To determine whether empiric antibiotic treatment approach (monotherapy or combined):
(a) is effective in ACS with respect to placebo or standard treatment;
(b) is safe in ACS with respect to placebo or standard treatment;
(c) regimens used in ACS differ from each other with respect to efficacy and safety.
