Broad-Spectrum Antibiotics in Treating Fever and Neutropenia in Patients Undergoing Stem Cell Transplant
This randomized phase II trial studies the effects of broad-spectrum antibiotics on friendly gut bacteria in patients with fever and neutropenia undergoing stem cell transplant. Broad-spectrum antibiotics, such as piperacillin-tazobactam, cefepime, and aztreonam, are given to prevent or control fever and neutropenia. However, they may also kill off friendly gut bacteria. It is not yet known if treatment with piperacillin-tazobactam or cefepime and aztreonam will have less of an effect on friendly gut bacteria.
