Study evaluates various strategies for diagnosis and treatment of sore throat

ryngitis is compatible with a goal of reducing overall and unnecessary use of antibiotics for treatment of pharyngitis. However, empirical antibiotic treatment of adults with a Centor score of 3 or greater as proposed in the ASIM guideline may result in 40 percent of adults being prescribed antibiotics unnecessarily. Throat cultures, or throat culture confirmation of negative rapid test results, continue to be necessary in children to ensure optimal identification of GAS pharyngitis," the authors write.
