Urinary tract infections (UTI) are one of the most common bacterial infections seen. Episodes of UTI can effectively be treated with antibiotics, often given on an empirical basis. In this book, the authors present current research in UTI’s. Topics discussed in this compilation include the antibiotic and non-antibiotic methods of prophylaxis for recurrent UTI’s; UTI’s in children; virulence factors of uropathogenic Escherichia coli and their role in development of UTI’s; and the treatment for UTI’s due to multidrug-resistant bacteria.
