[Cefaclor in the treatment of respiratory tract infections in children].

61 children up to the age of 14 years with respiratory tract infections underwent therapy with Cefaclor. 52 patients (89%) had satisfactory results. 4 patients (7%) experienced prolonged signs of infection. Cefaclor was very well tolerated. Because of its wide spectrum of activity particularly against ampicillin resistant strains of H. influenzae and because of its good tolerance Cefaclor is very useful in treatment of respiratory tract infections in children.
