Neutropenia is very common in patients received hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, with median duration of about 14 days. In 2010 update, IDSA recommended Piperacillin/tazobactam as first-line mono-therapy for febrile patients with neutropenia of high risk. In china, the data of piperacillin/tazobactam for febrile neutropenia after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is very limited.
The current study will evaluate the efficacy of piperacillin/tazobactam compared with imipenem/cilastatin for febrile neutropenia after transplantation.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Febrile Neutropenia Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation||Drug: Piperacillin-tazobactam combination product Drug: Imipenem|
- Swab culture (skin, pharyngeal, nasal, anus) when administered into laminar flow room after transplantation.
- Randomize the febrile patients into 2 groups.
- Therapy group receive piperacillin/tazobactam, 4.5g q6h iv. Control group receive imipenem/cilastatin, 0.5g q6h. Duration will be 5-10 days.

- Clinical success rate. [ Time Frame: 3 weeks after beginning of empirical therapy ]Resolve of clinical symptoms and signs, without change of therapy.
- Microbiologic success rate [ Time Frame: 3 weeks after beginning of empirical therapy ]
Microbiologic success includes eradication, suspected eradication, and super-infection.
- Eradication or Presumed eradication: the baseline pathogens no longer present on the culture performed after completion of treatment. If no way to collect biologic sample(s) after treatment;, e.g. sputum, a presumed eradication will be concluded
- No eradication: one or more baseline pathogens were persistent
- Relapse: the baseline pathogens transient absence reappeared during the therapy
- Alternative: the baseline pathogens were eradicated, but new ones appeared without any clinical signs and symptoms
- Re-infection: the baseline pathogens were eradicated, but new ones appeared with clinical signs and symptoms.
- Adverse effect [ Time Frame: 3 weeks after beginning of empirical therapy ]The number of patients developed unexpected medical information at the 3 weeks after beginning of empirical therapy.
- Cost of drug and therapy [ Time Frame: 3 weeks after beginning of empirical therapy ]
