Wilson was principal investigator in the Mosaic study, a randomized double-blind multinational trial involving 730 patients with acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. Half of the patients received 400 mg of moxifloxacin once daily; the others received 7 days of amoxicillin at 500 mg t.i.d., cefuroximeaxetil 250 mg b.i.d., or clarithromycin 500 mg b.i.d.
