Penta at ECCMID 2021

09 Jul, 2021

We are excited to share that at the 31st edition of the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID), 2 studies in which Penta plays a coordinator role, PediCAP and neoVanc, and 1 in which we are a partner, NeoOBS, will be presented. This year, ECCMID will be held virtually from 9-12 July 2021.


  • Global estimates of the relative paediatric consumption and cost of oral amoxicillin and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid. G. A. Levine, M. Sharland, S. Ellis, Y. Ferrisse, C. Loze, Y. Hsia, G. Fink, J. Bielicki; for the PediCAP project


  • Multi-centre randomised open label phase IIb study to compare the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of an optimised dosing to a standard dosing regimen of vancomycin in neonates and infants aged 90 days with late onset bacterial sepsis known or suspected to be caused by Gram-positive microorganisms. L Hill on behalf of neoVanc


  • Rapid Progression around the antibiotic wheel: analysis of a multi-conutry prospective neonatal observational study (NeoOBS). N Russel (Exeter, United Kingdom) E Losifidis, E Roilides, O.B.O. The NeoOBS Study Group
  • Challenges and strategies used in the implementation of a global multi-centre prospective observational cohort protocol to investigate aetiology and management of neonatal sepsis: the NeoOBS study. A Riddel 
  • Clinical presentation, prediction of mortallily and development of the NeoSep severity score for neonates hospitalised with sepsis in low-and middle-income settings: analysis for the NeoOBS study. W Stohr, N Plakkal, O.B:O. The NeoOBS Study Group
  • The complex relationship between timing of concordant antibiotic treatment, clinical severity, and mortality in neonates with carbapenem-resistant organism bloodstream infections from a multi-centre cohort study: the NeoOBS study. A Cook, M Clements

  • Microbilogy data from a global multi centre prospective observational cohort of sepsis in hospitalised neonates: the NeoOBS studty. T. Kosyyanev
