Short-course versus long-course therapy of the same antibiotic for community-acquired pneumonia in adolescent and adult outpatients

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of short-course versus long-course antibiotic therapy (with the same antibiotic at the same daily dosage) for CAP in adolescent and adult outpatients. For efficacy outcomes, we will investigate non-inferiority of short-course antibiotic treatment; for safety outcomes, we will investigate superiority.

This is a protocol.
