From: Prospective study of the efficacy of antibiotics versus antitussive drugs for the management of URTI-related acute cough in children

Treatments Resolution of cough
Antibiotics vs antitussives χ2 = 3.738 (p = 0.0532, NS)
Antibiotics vs peripheral antitussives χ2 = 8.928 (p < 0.01)
Antibiotics vs central antitussives χ2 = 0.000 (p = NS)
Antibiotics + antitussives vs antitussives χ2 = 0.218 (p = NS)
Antibiotics + peripheral antituss. vs peripheral antitussives χ2 = 0.000 (p = NS)
Antibiotics + central antitussives vs central antitussives χ2 = 0.713 (p = NS)
