Abstract

This paper describes the purpose and process for establishing 'Criteria for Clinical Evaluation of Antibiotics in the Pediatric Field', which was reported in the Japanese Journal of Antibiotics Vol. 46, May, 1993. The Criteria Committee was organized in November 1991. Four meetings were held to establish the draft criteria. The criteria were applied to the evaluation of oral cephem S-1108 and parenteral cephem SCE-2787. When the criteria were compared with the conventional criteria, the results indicated that no difference was obtained in the efficacy rate as a whole, the sum of 'Good' and 'Excellent' cases, but there was a difference in the cases judged to be 'Excellent'. Partial alteration was made to the draft criteria and the Committee produced the final version of the criteria. However, the criteria are far from complete, so it will be subjected to further revision in accordance with future advances in chemotherapy.
