The major hypothesis to be tested is that the treatment of intraabdominal infections that have been adequately treated operatively or by percutaneous techniques with three to five days of antibiotics will result in outcomes equivalent to the current standard where treatment is carried out until the patient has returned to normal (normal white blood cell count, temperature, and intestinal function), and that patients treated for three to five days will receive fewer days of antibiotics than the control group that has traditionally received seven to 14 days of treatment.
