Henry is an active 5 year old boy. His mother brought him in for a check-up because Henry has had a fever and a sore throat for several days.  
You suspect Strep and take a throat culture. The standard treatment for Streptococcal Pharyngitis is oral Penicillin three times a day. However, for Henry and his mother, you are concerned about compliance and the expense of this medication. 
You recall that a drug representative recently told you that a daily dose of amoxicillin is just as good as penicillin, but costs less. You want to review the literature before you decide on amoxicillin for Henry and possibly changing your standard practice.
