 Reduced extended-spectrum cephalosporin susceptibility is predominantly clonal and associated with the mosaic penA XXXIV allele and derivatives (sensitivity 98% for cefixime and 91% for ceftriaxone), but alternative resistance mechanisms have sporadically emerged. Reduced azithromycin susceptibility has arisen through multiple mechanisms and shows limited clonal spread; the basis for resistance in 36% of isolates with reduced azithromycin susceptibility is unclear. Quinolone-resistant N. gonorrhoeae has arisen multiple times, with extensive clonal spread.

In 1994 (August-September) and in 1995 (July-October) faeces of Dutch veal calves and adult cattle was examined for the presence of verocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli O157 (O157 VTEC). The samples were collected at slaughterhouses. In 1994, O157 VTEC were isolated from three (0.9%) of 365 fecal samples of veal calves. Faeces of adult cattle was not collected. In 1995, O157 VTEC were isolated from one (0.5%) of 18.3 fecal samples of veal calves and from 30 (11.1%) of 270 fecal samples of adult cattle. In 1994, the organisms were isolated by selective plating onto both sorbitol MacConkey agar (SMAC) and SMAC containing tellurite and cefixime (TC-SMAC) following selective enrichment in modified trypton soya broth with acriflavin (mTSB + a). In 1995, the samples were enriched in modified E. coli broth with novobiocin (mEC + n), and in addition to directly plating onto TC-SMAC the enriched cultures were plated after incorporation of an immunomagnetic separation step of E. coli O157. All 30 strains isolated from adult cattle were isolated with the immunomagnetic separation procedure. Four of the 30 samples were determined positive also by directly plating onto TC-SMAC. The sample from the veal calve was determined positive only by directly plating onto TC-SMAC. Plating onto SMAC resulted only in negative results. Characterization of the O157 VTEC isolates showed similarities between isolates of humans and cattle. Additional experiments need to be done concerning this aspect. From this study it appeared that also Dutch cattle are a reservoir of O157 VTEC.

Three sporadic cases of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) O157 infection which occurred in Kanagawa in 1996 were investigated. In an attempt to determine sources of the infection, a novel method of immunomagnetic separation (IMS) was employed to isolate the bacterium from feces, foods, and other associated items. In the first case, strains of EHEC O157:H7 producing Vero toxin (VT) 2 were isolated from both feces of the patient and suspected food (cattle liver) kept at a restaurant, and the strains were found to be genotypically identical through an analysis of pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE). Subsequent investigation in the meat processing store, from which the above cattle liver had been retailed to the restaurants revealed that the store was contaminated with EHEC O157:H7 producing both VT1 and VT2. In the second case, a strain isolated from the patient was EHEC O157:H7 producing both VT1 and VT2 while strains isolated from the patient's family (without apparent symptom) and the suspected facility were O137:NM producing VT2. PFGE analysis indicated that the latter two strains were genotypically identical, suggesting that the facility thus contaminated with EHEC O157 caused the infection in question. In the third case, EHEC O157:NM producing VT2 was isolated from 4 out of 7 family members including the patient, and these strains were found to be genotypically identical by subsequent PFGE analysis. Source of the infection was, however, not determined due to lack of suspected food items. In this context, four slaughterhouses in Kanagawa Prefecture were investigated for presence of EHEC O157. As a result, strains of EHEC O157:H7 producing VT1 and VT2 were isolated from the contents of cattle's distal colon and surface of the skinned carcasses. Additional attempt was also made to determine a possibility of river water being contaminated with EHEC O157. The bacterium was, however, not isolated from water samples collected from 4 major rivers in the prefecture (at 10 collecting sites). Experiments were undertaken in order to evaluate the use of IMS in isolation of EHEC O157 from food items, with different pre-enrichment media and conditions. The results indicated that pre-enrichment by trypticase soy broth at 36 degrees C for 6 h followed by inoculating onto sorbitol MacConkey agar plate containing cefixime and tellurite was most appropriate to isolate EHEC O157 strains.

Neisseria gonorrhoeae is the causative agent of gonorrhea, a sexually transmitted infection (STI) of major importance. As a result of antibiotic resistance, there are now limited options for treating patients. We collected draft genome sequence data and associated metadata data on 76 N. gonorrhoeae strains from around the globe and searched for known determinants of antibiotics resistance within the strains. The population structure and evolutionary forces within the pathogen population were analyzed. Our results indicated a cosmopolitan gonoccocal population mainly made up of five subgroups. The estimated ratio of recombination to mutation (r/m = 2.2) from our data set indicates an appreciable level of recombination occurring in the population. Strains with resistance phenotypes to more recent antibiotics (azithromycin and cefixime) were mostly found in two of the five population subgroups.

Successful antimicrobial therapy is fundamental to the public health control of gonorrhea, in the absence of a protective immune response. Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the causative agent, has presented a constant challenge for the provision of such therapy as it has demonstrated the ability to become resistant to successive highly active agents chosen for first-line treatment. Acquisition of plasmids from other bacteria and long-term use of a single agent has selected both single step high-level and low-level resistance due to multiple mutations. While therapeutic failure of the current recommended agents cefixime and ceftriaxone begins to emerge, choice of alternative therapies is limited. Guidelines for therapy will be dependent on surveillance programs but individual patient management will require a viable organism to detect emerging resistance. Advances in molecular detection, while advantageous for the diagnosis of gonorrhea, fail to provide a viable organism, posing even greater challenges for the definition of treatment failure, and appropriate end points for test of cure. Innovative and collaborative approaches will be essential to maintain gonorrhea as a treatable infection.

Analysis of the mean acceptability/ preference rating from 769 children demonstrated that the flavor of azithromycin was rated significantly higher than that of cefpodoxime (4.3 vs. 2.8), cefprozil (4.0 vs. 3.4) and clarithromycin (4.3 vs. 2.7) and was comparable to that of cefixime (4.0 vs. 4.2) and loracarbef (4.4 vs. 4.5). A greater percentage of children preferred the taste of azithromycin to that of cefpodoxime (90.0% vs. 5.2%), cefprozil (63.0% vs. 33.1%) and clarithromycin (89.0% vs. 11.0%). The taste of azithromycin was not preferred to that of cefixime (39.0% vs. 53.9%) or loracarbef (36% vs. 58.5%).

The present case demonstrates that the uropathogenic E. hermanii clone can cause destruction of the kidneys. During asymptomatic bacteriuria or cystitis, the bacteria remain in the urinary tract. Even when pyelonephritis develops, inflammatory response of the host is still restricted to the urinary tract. These signs mean that uropathogenic E. hermanii may be not very virulent.

Staphylococcus aureus is an important cause of peritonitis in patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Using standard broth microdilution and disk diffusion methodology, we evaluated the in vitro activity of selected antimicrobial agents against S. aureus strains isolated from CAPD patients to assess candidate regimens for 1) topical agent control of colonization, 2) oral chemotherapy of CAPD infectious complications, and 3) parenteral treatment of serious CAPD-associated staphylococcal infections. A total of 34 isolates (31 patients) of S. aureus were available for testing, including 29 isolates (29 patients) from pericatheter skin, four isolates (four patients) from the nares, and one isolate from an episode of peritonitis. Six of the isolates were oxacillin-resistant (ORSA). The antimicrobial agents tested by broth microdilution included 17 different quinolones, 10 cephalosporins, six glycopeptides, two aminoglycosides, and imipenem. A total of eight potential topical agents, including the antistaphylococcal agent mupirocin, were tested by disk diffusion. All of the quinolones, with the exception of nalidixic acid (MIC90 greater than 16 micrograms/ml), had excellent activity against both ORSA and oxacillin-susceptible S. aureus (OSSA) with the most active agent being WIN57273 (MIC90 less than or equal to 0.015 microgram/ml). Imipenem and the cephalosporins, with the exception of cefixime, ceftazidime, and E-1040, possessed good activity against OSSA. None of the beta-lactam agents tested were active against ORSA. Likewise, the aminoglycosides, amikacin and gentamicin, exhibited good activity against OSSA strains but no activity against ORSA strains. All glycopeptides tested demonstrated excellent activity against ORSA strains. Of the topical antimicrobial agents tested only bacitracin, mupirocin, and nitrofurantoin were active against all OSSA and ORSA strains tested.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

In lower risk febrile neutropenic children receiving anticancer therapy, the efficacy of oral cefixime, given for 4 days after 72 hours of intravenous ceftriaxone plus amikacin, was similar to that of 7 days of parenteral ceftriaxone plus amikacin. The oral outpatient therapy approach to the treatment of lower risk febrile neutropenia after chemotherapy is safe and may be cost-saving. This strategy might be adopted as standard therapy in the future.

Thirty-seven patients were analysed. The bacteriological response consisted of negative urine cultures for all 37 patients on day 9. On day 9, 30 patients were completely asymptomatic, while 7 exhibited clinical improvement though persistence of bladder irritation or flank pain. On day 37, there were no remaining symptoms and no recurrences of urinary tract infection, as noted during the last follow-up visits.

The transport of dipeptides and beta-lactam antibiotics across the rat renal basolateral membrane was examined. The initial uptake of glycylsarcosine and cefadroxil by rat renal basolateral membrane vesicles was inhibited by the presence of all the di- and tripeptides and beta-lactam antibiotics that were tested in this study. However, the uptake of both substrates was not inhibited by glycine, an amino acid. The initial uptake of zwitterionic beta-lactam antibiotics, cefadroxil, cephradine, and cephalexin, was stimulated by preloaded glycylsarcosine (countertransport effect). On the other hand, the uptake of dianionic beta-lactam antibiotics, ceftibuten and cefixime, was not affected. A concentration-dependent initial uptake of glycylsarcosine and cefadroxil suggested the existence of a carrier-mediated mechanism, whereas the transport of ceftibuten did not show any saturated uptake. The transporter that participates in the permeation of dipeptides and beta-lactam antibiotics across basolateral membranes showed lower affinity than did PEPT1 and PEPT2. This is the first study that showed an evidence for a peptide transporter, expressed in the rat renal basolateral membrane, that recognizes zwitterionic beta-lactam antibiotics using basolateral membrane vesicles isolated from normal rat kidney.

Multidrug-resistant (MDR) Salmonella Typhi (resistant to chloramphenicol, ampicillin, and trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole) and isolates with reduced susceptibility to fluoroquinolones (indicated by resistance to nalidixic acid, NaR) have caused epidemics and become endemic in southern Viet Nam during the 1990s. Short courses of ofloxacin have proved acceptable for treating MDR/NaS isolates of S. Typhi (ofloxacin MIC90 = 0.06 mg/l) causing uncomplicated disease. Ofloxacin (10-15 mg/kg/d) given for 2, 3, or 5 d cured >90% of patients with an average fever clearance time (FCT) of 4 d. Less than 3% of patients relapsed or had a positive post-treatment stool culture. In contrast, the response of NaR isolates (ofloxacin MIC90 = 0.5 mg/l) to such regimens is poor. For example, ofloxacin (20 mg/kg/d) given for 7 d cured only 75% of patients, with an FCT of 7 d, and 19% of patients had positive post-treatment faecal cultures. Currently available alternatives for NaR infections include ceftriaxone, cefixime, and azithromycin. These antimicrobials are reasonably effective but expensive. New, effective, and affordable regimens are needed to treat these NaR infections. Short courses of the new generation fluoroquinolones or combinations of the available antimicrobials are possible options.

We compared cefixime with chloramphenicol in a randomized trial for treatment of children with culture positive typhoid fever. Twenty children were given cefixime 10 mg/kg/day orally and twenty received chloramphenicol 50 mg/kg/day orally. On entry in the study, the clinical characteristics of the two groups were comparable. Duration of therapy was 14 days. Clinical cure was observed in 18 (90%) patients treated with cefixime and 9 (45%) treated with chloramphenical. Out of the 11 patients who did not respond to chloramphenicol, 10 were switched over to cefixime and all of them were cured. Over all 28 cases out of 30 (93.3%) P = 0.0049 were cured by cefixime.

In Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the mosaic structure of penicillin-binding protein 2 (PBP 2), composed of fragments of PBP 2 from Neisseria cinerea and Neisseria perflava, was significantly associated with decreased susceptibility to cephalosporins, particularly oral cephalosporins. The aim of this study was to determine the affinity of mosaic PBP 2 for cephalosporins in N. gonorrhoeae.

The current guidelines recommend a combination of ceftriaxone and azithromycin as a first-line treatment of gonorrhea in the United States and Europe. Despite not being recommended as a first-line regimen in Japan, an oral 2-g dose of azithromycin did become available for gonococcal infections in 2009. Recently, the emergence of azithromycin-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates has been reported in several countries, including Japan.

Cefixime (Cfx), is a semi-synthetic third-generation oral cephalosporin antibiotic that is prescribed for the treatment of susceptible infections. There are some procedures for the determination of Cfx in pharmaceutical formulations and biological samples. Herein a spectrofluorimetric method was proposed for Cfx determination based on the fluorescence quenching of terbium-danofloxacin (Tb(3+)-Dano) in the presence of Cfx.

over the range of efficacy by the 95% confidence intervals of both drugs, our analysis demonstrated no clear cost advantage for either. The economic effects of accidental needlestick do not change this conclusion. Compared with the IM alternative, oral cefixime is painless to the patient and simpler for the practitioner to administer. Oral cefixime also eliminates the psychologic effects associated with needlesticks in health care workers. For these reasons, we favor the use of oral cefixime for uncomplicated gonococcal cervicitis in adolescents.

A total of 1,116 clinically isolated strains belonging to Staphylococcus aureus (200), Staphylococcus epidermidis (200), Streptococcus pneumoniae (20), Escherchia coli (200), Klebsiella spp. (177), Serratia marcescens (22), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (224), Haemophilus influenzae (35) and Salmonella (38) from the Department of Infectious Diseases, La Sapienza University in Rome (Italy) were tested against three fluoroquinolones (ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin) and 10 other antibiotics (augmentin, ampicillin, cefaclor, cefixime, cefotaxime, cotrimoxazole, gentamicin, minocycline, oxacillin and vancomycin). Fluoroquinolones inhibited essentially about 100% of H. influenzae, Salmonella and S. pneumoniae, more than 75% of Staphylococcus including methicillin-resistant strains, and about 90% of Enterobacteriaceae and 50% of P. aeruginosa. Minimal inhibitory concentration values ranged from < 0.015 to > 32 micrograms/ml for Klebsiella, S. aureus and epidermidis, E. coli and P. aeruginosa; from < 0.015 to 2 micrograms/ml for Salmonella; from 0.03 to 16 micrograms/ml for Serratia; from < 0.015 to 1 microgram/ml for Haemophilus; and from 0.5 to 2 micrograms/ml for S. pneumoniae. Levofloxacin and to a lesser extent ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin, generally exhibited a greater activity than the other agents against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Regarding the distribution of resistant strains in Italy, we found a peculiar pattern of resistance as far as E. coli and P. aeruginosa were concerned. Quality control parameters are also summarized. S. epidermidis resulted as a new emergent pathogen especially in immunocompromised patients and its level of sensitivity has been modified over the last few years. In fact, the percentage of resistant strains to antibiotics or the percentage of methicillin-resistant isolates (in our study 35%), has gradually increased. Levofloxacin and ofloxacin showed good activity against staphylococcal strains compared with the majority of other antibiotics. These results suggest that the newer quinolones are promising antimicrobial agents for various infections.

We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of ceftriaxone for treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhoea compared with four other antibiotics. Thirteen randomized controlled trials (RCTs) totalling treatment of 2557 patients with uncomplicated gonorrhoea were included. Statistically significant differences were observed in side-effects, which were increased after ceftriaxone 250 mg versus cefotaxime 500 mg (odds ratio [OR] 1.87; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.14-3.08). Cure rates of ceftriaxone 250 mg were significantly better than cefixime 400 mg (OR 1.77; 95% CI 1.11-2.80) as was ceftriaxone 125 mg versus spectinomycin 2 g (OR 3.44; 95% CI 1.08-10.90). There was no statistically significant difference between ceftriaxone 250 mg and cefixime 800 mg in cure rates (OR 1.39; 95% CI 0.92-2.10) or adverse effects (OR 1.29, 95% CI 0.58-2.84) for treating uncomplicated gonorrhoea. The cure rate after ceftriaxone 250 mg was not significantly different from that after spectinomycin 2 g (OR 1.96; 95% CI 1.00-3.87). In conclusion, this meta-analysis revealed that 250 mg ceftriaxone had a higher efficacy than 400 mg cefixime for uncomplicated gonorrhoea. Also, ceftriaxone 125 mg is a better choice than spectinomycin 2 g for patients with uncomplicated gonorrhoea, but ceftriaxone had higher side-effect rates than cefotaxime. In the current era further randomized controlled clinical trials of ceftriaxone for uncomplicated gonorrhoea are warranted.

An observational analytic cross-sectional study was carried out amongst pregnant women attending selected antenatal care centres in Buea. We recruited 102 consenting pregnant women for the study. Demographic and clinical data were collected using structured questionnaires. Clean catch midstream urine was collected from each participant in sterile leak proof containers. Samples were examined biochemically, microscopically and by culture. Significant bacteriuria was defined as the presence of ≥10⁸ bacteria/L of cultured urine. Identification and susceptibility of isolates was performed using API 20E and ATB UR EU (08) (BioMerieux, Marcy l'Etoile, France).

None of the N. gonorrhoeae isolates was susceptible to penicillin G and most were resistant to tetracycline (50%) and ciprofloxacin (97%). The rates of resistance to ceftriaxone, azithromycin, cefpodoxime and cefixime were 3%, 5%, 8% and 9%, respectively. However, all isolates were susceptible to spectinomycin. Twenty-one (84%) of the 25 ESC-resistant isolates contained the non-mosaic PBP2 XIII allele; however, the remaining 4 (16%) possessed the mosaic PBP2 X allele, which has been previously associated with ESC resistance including treatment failures.

In the present work, we present a system of hydrogel/micelle composite as dual-drug release vehicle. The hydrogel is prepared from poly(ethyleneglycol) PEG and poly(vinyl alcohol) PVA. Polymeric micelles are enjoying high resurgence of interest in biomedical field as promising candidates for the stabilization and delivery of water insoluble drugs. This property was used to design and synthesize oleic acid-g-chitosan (OA-g-CS) copolymer micelles. Dual drugs, an analgesic, Tramadol (TMD) and an antibiotic, Cefixime trihydrate (CFX) were used as model drugs. The drug release behaviors of the micelle and PEG-PVA/micelle DDDS were studied as functions of pH and temperature. The release profiles were analyzed by a power law equation to reveal the release mechanism of drugs. The drug carrier vehicle was characterized and studies including swelling, effect of ionic strength, anti-oxidant, antimicrobial and in vitro drug release were carried out. The release of the two drugs was much more pronounced in the basic medium than in the acidic medium.

We undertook to identify the antimicrobial susceptibility of the pathogens isolated from patients with otitis media or maxillary sinusitis who failed to respond to antimicrobial therapy, and correlate it with previous antimicrobial therapy and smoking. We analyzed isolates recovered from 2 consecutive cultures obtained from middle ear aspirate obtained through an open perforation in 22 children with otitis, and maxillary sinus aspirate collected by endoscopy from 20 patients. Forty-seven isolates were repeatedly recovered from 42 culture-positive individuals. The organisms isolated were Streptococcus pneumoniae (15 isolates), Haemophilus influenzae (14), Staphylococcus aureus (7), Moraxella catarrhalis (6), and Streptococcus pyogenes (5). Resistance of at least 2 tube dilutions to the antimicrobial agents used was found in 23 of the 47 (49%) isolates that were found in 20 (48%) of the patients. These included 10 of 15 (67%) isolates of S pneumoniae, 4 of 14 (29%) H influenzae (all were beta-lactamase producers), 4 of 7 (57%) S aureus (all beta-lactamase producers), 5 of 6 (83%) M catarrhalis (all beta-lactamase producers), and none of 5 S pyogenes. In the 21 patients who failed to respond to amoxicillin, H influenzae and S pneumoniae predominated. Streptococcus pneumoniae was recovered from 4 of the 11 (36%) after trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, 4 of 21 (19%) after amoxicillin, 2 of 3 (67%) after azithromycin dihydrate, and 1 of 4 (25%) after cefixime. A statistically significant higher recovery of resistant organisms was noted in those treated 2 to 6 buy suprax months previously, and in those with sinusitis who smoked. The data illustrate the relationship between resistance to antimicrobials and failure of patients with otitis media and sinusitis to improve.

A total of 410 strains of viridans group streptococci isolated consecutively from blood were tested by the microdilution method for in vitro susceptibility to 22 beta-lactam antibiotics. One hundred thirty-eight strains (33.6%) were resistant to penicillin with a MIC range of 0.25 to 8 micrograms/ml. MICs of all beta-lactam agents tested were higher for penicillin-resistant strains than for susceptible strains. These antibiotics were classified into three groups according to their in buy suprax vitro activities (MICs at which 50 and 90% of the isolates are inhibited). Beta-Lactams of the first group (these included imipenem, cefpirome, FK-037, cefditoren, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, and cefepime) showed activities higher than or similar to that of penicillin against penicillin-resistant viridans group streptococci. However, 80% of highly penicillin-resistant Streptococcus mitis organisms required cefotaxime and ceftriaxone MICs of > or = 2 micrograms/ml (range, 2 to 16 micrograms/ml). Beta-Lactams of the second group (cefpodoxime, ampicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate, piperacillin, and cefuroxime) showed lower activities than penicillin. Finally, antibiotics of the third group (cephalothin, oxacillin, ceftazidime, cefixime, cefaclor, cefetamet, cefadroxil, cephalexin, and ceftibuten) showed poor in vitro activities. Therefore, some of the beta-lactam agents included in the first group could be an acceptable alternative in the treatment of serious infections due to strains highly resistant to penicillin, although clinical experience is needed.

The pharmacokinetic profile of FK482 was studied in mice, rats, rabbits and dogs after oral dosing and compared with that of cefixime, cefaclor and cephalexin. Considerable differences in oral absorption of FK482 were observed among the animal species. Absolute bioavailabilities of FK482 were 12.6% in mice, 15.3% in rats, 32.3% in rabbits and 72.3% in dogs. In mice and rats, the absorption of FK482 was poor, and was the lowest of the reference antibiotics. FK482 was moderately well absorbed, with higher plasma levels than cefixime in rabbits and, like cefixime, gave higher plasma levels and a longer half-life than cefaclor or cephalexin in dogs. The increase in the area under the serum concentration time curve (AUC) of FK482 was strictly proportional to the increase in dose in the range of 2.5 to 40 mg/kg in rats and dogs, and 2.5 to 20 mg/kg buy suprax in rabbits and the urinary recovery rates were almost constant. All tissue concentrations of FK482 in rats and rabbits were lower than those of the reference antibiotics and reflected its lower plasma concentrations in these animals. The urinary recovery rates of FK482 were 9.8% for mice, 15.5% for rats, 45.8% for rabbits and 47.1% for dogs. The biliary recovery rate of FK482 was low; 1.4% in rats and less than 0.1% in rabbits and dogs. No active metabolites were detected in the plasma, urine or bile samples from rats, rabbits or dogs. FK482 was mainly absorbed in the jejunum, and was inactivated in the large intestine. The serum-protein binding of FK482 was almost the same as that of cefixime: 60-77% for mouse, rabbit and human serum, and 90-93% for rat and dog serum.

The in vitro activity of cefixime and 9 other orally used antimicrobial agents against 545 selected clinical respiratory tract pathogens was tested using the plate-dilution method. Of the strains tested, 144 were Haemophilus influenzae strains, 151 group A streptococci, 105 pneumococci and 145 Moraxella catarrhalis isolates. Ciprofloxacin was the most active drug, with a minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of < 0.06 mg/l for more than 87% of the Augmentin Overdose isolates. With cefixime, a MIC of 0.06 mg/l inhibited 55% of the strains tested and a MIC of 1.0 mg/l inhibited all except one of the 545 strains. One pneumococcal strain was resistant to cefixime. Beta-lactamase producing H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis strains were clearly more susceptible to cefixime than to other oral cephalosporins (cephalexin, cefaclor, cefuroxime). However, penicillin, ampicillin and cefuroxime were more effective against beta-hemolytic streptococci and pneumococci than was cefixime. The new third generation cephalosporin, cefixime, showed markedly better in vitro activity against certain major respiratory tract pathogens than the other peroral antimicrobials commonly used against respiratory tract infections.

During a two-year period, 60 patients (age [mean +/- SD]: 15 +/- 9 years; males: 40 [67%]) were studied. All isolates were sensitive to ciprofloxacin and ceftriaxone by disc diffusion and MIC breakpoints. However, 11 patients had clinical failure of fluoroquinolone therapy. Infections with NARST isolates (47 [78 Biaxin Pill Images %]) were significantly associated with longer duration of fever at presentation (median [IQR] 10 [7-15] vs. 4 [3-6] days; P = 0.000), higher frequency of hepatomegaly (57% vs. 15%; P = 0.021), higher levels of aspartate aminotransferase (121 [66-235] vs. 73 [44-119] IU/L; P = 0.033), and increased MIC of ciprofloxacin (0.37 +/- 0.21 vs. 0.17 +/- 0.14 microg/mL; P = 0.005), as compared to infections with nalidixic acid-susceptible isolates. All 11 patients with complications were infected with NARST isolates. Total duration of illness was significantly longer in patients who developed complications than in patients who did not (22 [14.8-32] vs. 12 [9.3-20.3] days; P = 0.011). Duration of prior antibiotic intake had a strong positive correlation with the duration of fever at presentation (r = 0.61; P = 0.000) as well as the total duration of illness (r = 0.53; P = 0.000).

Escherichia coli O157:H7 is an emergent pathogen associated with food transmitted diseases. In 1982, Escherichia coli O157:H7 was for the first time identified as the cause of two hemorrhagic colitis outbreaks in the United States. It is now well known that most cases of hemolytic uremic syndrome are caused by these bacteria. The objective of this work was to detect the microorganism in fresh ground beef and hamburgers. From April 2003 to August 2004 samples were taken at sale points of our supermarket chain, totalling 37 and 43, respectively. These samples were processed using the EC selective enrichment broth containing novobiocin, then followed by the application of an immunocapture method (TECRA E. COLI O157 IMMUNOCAPTURE ECOICM 20), and Risperdal 50 Mg later isolation in MacConkey sorbitol agar with cefixime and potassium tellurite, in a chromogenic medium. The suspected strains were genotypically characterized by PCR detection of the stx1, stx2, eaeA, and EHEC-hlyA genes, and by a colony blot hybridization assay. Serotyping, antimicrobial susceptibility patterns, and production of Stx by a specific cytotoxicity assay on Vero cells were also determined. E coli O157:H7 was isolated in only one fresh ground beef sample (2,7%), identified as gene eae (+)/ stx2/EHEC-hlyA.

We studied injury of Escherichia coli O157:H7 cells in 11 food items Levitra And Alcohol during freeze storage and methods of isolating freeze-injured E. coli O157:H7 cells from foods. Food samples inoculated with E. coli O157:H7 were stored for 16 weeks at -20 degrees C in a freezer. Noninjured and injured cells were counted by using tryptic soy agar and sorbitol MacConkey agar supplemented with cefixime and potassium tellurite. Large populations of E. coli O157:H7 cells were injured in salted cabbage, grated radish, seaweed, and tomato samples. In an experiment to detect E. coli O157:H7 in food samples artificially contaminated with freeze-injured E. coli O157:H7 cells, the organism was recovered most efficiently after the samples were incubated in modified E. coli broth without bile salts at 25 degrees C for 2 h and then selectively enriched at 42 degrees C for 18 h by adding bile salts and novobiocin. Our enrichment method was further evaluated by isolating E. coli O157:H7 from frozen foods inoculated with the organism prior to freezing. Two hours of resuscitation at 25 degrees C in nonselective broth improved recovery of E. coli O157:H7 from frozen grated radishes and strawberries, demonstrating that the resuscitation step is very effective for isolating E. coli O157:H7 from frozen foods contaminated with injured E. coli O157:H7 cells.

In this study, we investigated the prevalence and numbers of Escherichia coli O157 on bovine hides. Samples (n = 1,500) were collected over a 17-month period (30 samples per week) by sponge swabbing approximately 122-cm2 areas of the bovine rump of slaughtered cattle at an early stage of carcass processing (first legging). Sponge samples (n = 1,500) were stomached in buffered peptone water supplemented with novobiocin, directly plated on sorbitol MacConkey with Cefixime tellurite (SMAC-CT), enriched for 24 h, extracted by immunomagnetic separation, and plated onto SMAC-CT agar. Presumptive E. coli O157 colonies from SMAC-CT plates were confirmed by PCR for the presence of eaeA, hlyA, fliCh7, vt1, vt2, and portions of the rfb (O-antigen encoding) region of E. coli O157. Overall, E. coli O157 was recovered from 109 samples (7.3%) at concentrations ranging from less than 0.13 to 4.24 log CFU/100 cm2. PCR analysis revealed a wide diversity of genetic profiles among recovered isolates of verocytotoxigenic E. coli. Of the isolates recovered, 99 of 109 contained the attaching and effacing gene (eaeA) and the hemolysin gene (hlyA), and 78 of 109 had the flagellar H7 antigen-encoding gene (fliCh7). Only 6 of 109 isolates contained both verotoxin-producing genes (vt1 and vt2); 91 of 109 contained the vt2 gene only, whereas 1 of 109 contained the vt1 gene only. The remaining 11 of 109 contained neither vt1 nor vt2.

Cefixime is a new orally absorbed iminomethoxy, aminothiazolyl cephalosporin. It inhibits the majority, 90%, of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Branhamella catarrhalis, Haemophilus influenzae, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae at concentrations less than or equal to 0.25 micrograms/ml. It inhibits 90% of the other members of the Enterobacteriaceae at concentrations less than 1 microgram/ml, with the exception of some strains of Enterobacter spp., Citrobacter freundii and Morganella morganii, Cefixime does not inhibit enterococci, Listeria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter, Bacteroides spp. or staphylococci. In general, cefixime has in vitro activity superior to cephalexin, cephradine, cefadroxil and cefaclor against all bacteria with the exception of staphylococci. Cefixime is not destroyed by most of the common plasmid and chromosomal beta-lactamases and its activity is not reduced by serum, blood or urine. Cefixime overall has excellent in vitro activity against the commonly encountered respiratory and urinary tract pathogens.

The present study was conducted to investigate antimicrobial resistant pattern of Escherichia coli (E. coli) strains isolated from clinical specimens of Jordanian pediatric patients during the period from January to December 2008. A total of 444 E. coli strains were isolated from clinical specimens and tested for their susceptibility to different antimicrobial drugs. Overall, high resistance rate was observed for ampicillin (84%), followed by amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (74.3%), cotrimoxazole (71%), nalidixic acid (47.3%), cephalothin (41%). Lower resistance rates were observed for amikacin (0%) followed by Cefotaxime (11%), Ceftriaxone (11.7%), ciprofloxacin (14.5%), Norfloxacin (16.5%), gentamicin (17.3%) cephalexin (20.9%), Ceftazidime (22.5%), cefixime (29.6%), and cefaclor (32.8%). Ampicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and cotrimoxazole were found to be ineffective at in vitro inhibition of the E. coli of pediatric origin. Amikacin was highly effective for E. coli with susceptibility rate of 100%. The majority of E. coli strains were susceptible to third generation cephalosporins and fluoroquinolones.

Since resistance to several oral antimicrobials useful for the treatment of pediatric urinary tract infections (UTI) is overwhelming in Argentina, an in vitro investigation was performed testing 400 isolates obtained from urines of children suffering UTI's, 200 collected in 1990 and 200 in 1991. Their susceptibility against oral antimicrobials marketed in Argentina and appropriate for the treatment of UTI was determined by the agar dilution methods. An increase of the resistance to aminopenicillin combined with beta-lactamase inhibitors and to fluoroquinolones was observed comparing the two periods. Cefpodoxime (CPD), cefixime and fluoroquinolones except norfloxacin were the sole oral antimicrobials showing in vitro activity at the 90 per cent level. Unfortunately fluoroquinolones are not yet approved for pediatric use. Consequently we realized an in vitro and in vivo pharmacokinetic study in order to determine CPD activity against E. coli isolated in UTI cases. Five children (6-10 y) showing E. coli UTI infections received 10 mg/kg/d CPD in a single oral daily dose and were treated up to 10 days, 3 had lower UTI and 2 upper UTI. All patients were clinical and bacteriologically cured. Cultures obtained up to 4 weeks after treatment were negative. CPD serum levels at 2 hours after the first dose of treatment showed a median of 2.7 mg/l (2.3-3.4 range). Bactericidal serum titers at the same time against the patients own strain and an E. coli TEM-1 hyperproducer strain (MIC 4,096 mg/l for ampicillin and 0.5 mg/l for CPD) showed a median value of 1/8 against patients strains and 1/2 against the THP strain.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
