This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To evaluate third and fourth generation cephalosporins in the treatment of enteric fever in children and adults compared with other antibiotics. The primary objectives are:
- to identify whether the drugs under scrutiny are clinically effective
- which is the optimal agent and at what dose
- what is the most appropriate route of administration
- what is the ideal treatment duration
Therefore, we will perform within-class comparisons and an assessment of third and fourth generation cephalosporin treatment duration.
