[Experience of bicillin prevention of acute respiratory diseases in the training center].

[Article in Russian]


The article describes the experience of emergency prevention of acute respiratory diseases among the young recruits by intramuscular injection of BICILLIN-5. This method allowed in winter 2011 to reduce the number of diseases caused by pneumococcus, staphylococcus and streptococcus significantly. Considering the polyetiology of pneumonia, acute bronchitis and acute respiratory infections, the lack of specific means of prevention against the majority of them, as well as the role of the low resistance of the organism in the military development of acute respiratory diseases, it is proposed to use antiviral drugs and immunotropic funds in addition to chemoprophylaxis and vaccination.
