Adding new evidence to the debate on the best treatment for middle-ear infections, or acute otitis media, in young children, clinical researchers at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center have found antibiotics to be more effective than a placebo in relieving symptoms.

The study was funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health.
