Sinusitis is one malady that is prone to antibiotic overuse - antibiotics are prescribed for some 50% of patients, partly because busy physicians don’t feel they have the time to explain to them why an antibiotic is not appropriate. ENTvantage Diagnostics Inc. is developing a point-of-care diagnostic to quickly determine whether patients have bacterial or viral sinusitis.
