    Does Recurrent Clostridium difficile Infection Mean Reinfection or Relapse?

    If you even read the article in entirety,the study suggests patients are re-infecting themselves with the same strain. Therefore, fidax is of no advantage to vancomycin since resistance is not the issue here. Please read authors note for this study.

    • Hey ...if I understand you correctly you are trying to paint a picture for us that says it's something outside of original treatment,i.e. poor handwashing that's causing a new episode of c-dif??? Go to any Medical dictionary and look up relapse....it states that the patient regresses back to diseased/original diagnosis due to partial/unsucessful treatment/recovery. In other words Vanco only appeared to quell the C-dif, You and jia have the same mother??? Sorry,rude of me,.....

    • please explain Dificid's improved outcomes at day 12, day 25 and day 40 for treatment vs. vanco. I don't care what the reason for readmissions to the hospital is, if Dificid prevents them more often than vanco, then it is the superior treatment imo.
