The SCOUT Study

Description

The SCOUT study will compare children with urinary tract infections treated with 5 days of antibiotics + five days of placebo (no active medication) versus those treated with 10 full days of antibiotic therapy. The standard-of-care to treat uncomplicated UTIs is a 10-day course of antibiotics. Preliminary data shows that shorter courses of antibiotics have been effective in treating urinary tract infections in adults. The SCOUT Study will determine if five days of antibiotics is as effective and safe in treating a UTI (as compared to 10 days of the standard treatment) in children. IRB 11-008186
