Mechanisms of beta-lactam resistance amongst Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated in an Italian survey. (1/1422)

The mechanisms of resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics in 325 isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were examined. These isolates were selected because of their resistance to meropenem and imipenem (breakpoint, >4 mg/L), carbenicillin (>128 mg/L), ceftazidime (>8 mg/L), piperacillin and ticarcillin/clavulanate (>64 mg/L). The most frequent mechanism of resistance was beta-lactamase-independent, so called 'intrinsic resistance', which was found in 183 isolates and was probably due to impermeability and/or efflux mechanisms. beta-Lactamase-mediated resistance was demonstrated in 111 strains (11.1%). Derepression of Ambler Class C chromosomal beta-lactamase was detected in 64 isolates, most of which were resistant to ceftazidime and piperacillin but susceptible to meropenem, whereas secondary plasmid-encoded beta-lactamases were found in 34 isolates, all of them resistant to carboxypenicillins and ureidopenicillins and susceptible to carbapenems. Twelve strains showed more than one plasmid-encoded beta-lactamase plus derepression of chromosomal Class C enzyme. Resistance to carbapenems was independent of resistance to other beta-lactam antibiotics, indicating a different mechanism of resistance, probably due to the loss of the D2 porin. In total, 32 strains were resistant to carbapenems: 24 only to imipenem and eight to both imipenem and meropenem.  (+info)

Comparison of activities of broad-spectrum beta-lactam compounds against 1,128 gram-positive cocci recently isolated in cancer treatment centers. (2/1422)

We report the in vitro activities of broad-spectrum beta-lactam antimicrobials tested against 1,128 gram-positive pathogens recently isolated from cancer patients. Cefepime and imipenem were more active than ceftazidime and ceftriaxone against these organisms. Only vancomycin demonstrated reliable activity against oxacillin-resistant staphylococci, Enterococcus spp., and Corynebacterium spp. The spectrum of gram-positive organisms against which cefepime and imipenem have activity provides an advantage over ceftazidime as empiric therapy for cancer patients, potentially reducing the need for the empiric addition of glycopeptides.  (+info)

Clavulanic acid inhibition of beta-lactamase I from Bacillus cereus 569/H. (3/1422)

Inactivation of beta-lactamase I by clavulanic acid was investigated. Clavulanic acid induced inhibition of the enzyme was found to be progressive with time. Benzylpenicillin provided protection against the adverse effects of the inhibitor initially, however, the enzyme was irreversibly inhibited in a progressive manner even in the presence of substrate. Reaction of beta-lactamase I with clavulanic acid, in the presence of ampicillin, led to a very rapid inactivation of the enzyme.  (+info)

Kinetic properties and metal content of the metallo-beta-lactamase CcrA harboring selective amino acid substitutions. (4/1422)

The crystal structure of the metallo-beta-lactamase CcrA3 indicates that the active site of this enzyme contains a binuclear zinc center. To aid in assessing the involvement of specific residues in beta-lactam hydrolysis and susceptibility to inhibitors, individual substitutions of selected amino acids were generated. Substitution of the zinc-ligating residue Cys181 with Ser (C181S) resulted in a significant reduction in hydrolytic activity; kcat values decreased 2-4 orders of magnitude for all substrates. Replacement of His99 with Asn (H99N) significantly reduced the hydrolytic activity for penicillin and imipenem. Replacement of Asp103 with Asn (D103N) showed reduced hydrolytic activity for cephaloridine and imipenem. Deletion of amino acids 46-51 dramatically reduced both the hydrolytic activity and affinity for all beta-lactams. The metal binding capacity of each mutant enzyme was examined using nondenaturing electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. Two zinc ions were observed for the wild-type enzyme and most of the mutant enzymes. However, for the H99N, C181S, and D103N enzymes, three different zinc content patterns were observed. These enzymes contained two zinc molecules, one zinc molecule, and a mixture of one or two zinc molecules/enzyme molecule, respectively. Two enzymes with substitutions of Cys104 or Cys104 and Cys155 were also composed of mixed enzyme populations.  (+info)

OXA-17, a further extended-spectrum variant of OXA-10 beta-lactamase, isolated from Pseudomonas aeruginosa. (5/1422)

Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates 871 and 873 were isolated at Hacettepe University Hospital in Ankara and were highly resistant to ceftazidime (MIC, 128 microg/ml). Each produced three beta-lactamases, with pIs of 5.3, 6.1, and 7.9. The beta-lactamase with a pI of 5.3 was previously shown to be PER-1 enzyme. The antibiograms of the isolates were not entirely explained by production of PER-1 enzyme, insofar as ceftazidime resistance was incompletely reversed by clavulanate. The enzymes with pIs of 6.1 and 7.9 were therefore investigated. The enzyme with a pI of 6.1 proved to be a novel mutant of OXA-10, which we designated OXA-17, and had asparagine changed to serine at position 73 of the protein. When cloned into Escherichia coli XL1-blue, OXA-17 enzyme conferred greater resistance to cefotaxime, latamoxef, and cefepime than did OXA-10, but it had only a marginal (two- to fourfold) effect on the MIC of ceftazidime. This behavior contrasted with that of previous OXA-10 mutants, specifically OXA-11, -14, and -16, which predominately compromise ceftazidime. Extracted OXA-17 enzyme had relatively greater activity than OXA-10 against oxacillin, cloxacillin, and cefotaxime but, in terms of kcat/Km, it had lower catalytic efficiency against most beta-lactams. The enzyme with a pI of 7.9 was shown by gene sequencing to be OXA-2.  (+info)

Activities of beta-lactams and macrolides against Helicobacter pylori. (6/1422)

A continuous-culture system (chemostat) was used to study the activities of beta-lactam antimicrobial agents, clarithromycin, and 14-OH-clarithromycin against slowly growing Helicobacter pylori NCTC 11637. H. pylori was grown to steady state before exposure to these antimicrobial agents at x8 the MIC. The bactericidal actions of combinations of amoxicillin and clarithromycin were also studied. Viable counts (numbers of CFU per milliliter) were determined at 2-h intervals for 12 h and at 20 h after the addition of antibiotics. The effects of pH changes (6.5 to 7.4) on the activities of amoxicillin, clarithromycin, and the combination of these against H. pylori NCTC 11637 were also studied. Viable counts following exposure to ampicillin, cefixime, ceftazidime, cefuroxime, cefotaxime, azlocillin, and piperacillin at 20 h showed bacteriostatic activity. Imipenem, meropenem, amoxicillin, clarithromycin, and 14-OH-clarithromycin reduced the viable counts by 3 log10 CFU/ml (>/=99.9% killing). Imipenem was the most rapidly bactericidal against H. pylori NCTC 11637. Results of the pH experiments showed that amoxicillin was bactericidal at pHs 6.5 to 7. 4. Clarithromycin was bactericidal at pH 7.0 to 7.4 but was bacteriostatic at pH 6.5. The combination of amoxicillin and clarithromycin was bactericidal at pHs 6.5 and 7.0. A batch culture (flask system) was also used to investigate 12 strains of H. pylori for their susceptibilities to beta-lactams, clarithromycin, and/or 14-OH-clarithromycin in order to determine whether results from the chemostat model can be reproduced with batch cultures. Results of the chemostat time-kill kinetic study were reproducible in our batch culture flask system. The role of carbapenems in the eradication of H. pylori should be investigated.  (+info)

In vivo efficacies of combinations of beta-lactams, beta-lactamase inhibitors, and rifampin against Acinetobacter baumannii in a mouse pneumonia model. (7/1422)

The effects of various regimens containing combinations of beta-lactams, beta-lactam inhibitor(s), and rifampin were assessed in a recently described mouse model of Acinetobacter baumannii pneumonia (M. L. Joly-Guillou, M. Wolff, J. J. Pocidalo, F. Walker, and C. Carbon, Antimicrob. Agents Chemother. 41:345-351, 1997). Two aspects of the therapeutic response were studied: the kinetics of the bactericidal effect (treatment was initiated 3 h after intratracheal inoculation, and bacterial counts were determined over a 24-h period) and survival (treatment was initiated 8 h after inoculation, and the cumulative mortality rate was assessed on day 5). Two clinical strains were used: a cephalosporinase-producing strain (SAN-94040) and a multiresistant strain (RCH-69). For SAN-94040 and RCH-69, MICs and MBCs (milligrams per liter) were as follows: ticarcillin, 32, 64, 256, and >256, respectively; ticarcillin-clavulanate, 32, 64, and 512, and >512, respectively; imipenem, 0.5, 0.5, 8, and 32, respectively; sulbactam, 0.5, 0.5, 8, and 8, respectively; and rifampin, 8, 8, 4, and 4, respectively. Against SAN-94040, four regimens, i.e., imipenem, sulbactam, imipenem-rifampin, and ticarcillin-clavulanate (at a 25/1 ratio)-sulbactam produced a true bactericidal effect (>/=3-log10 reduction of CFU/g of lung). The best survival rate (i.e., 93%) was obtained with the combination of ticarcillin-clavulanate-sulbactam, and regimens containing rifampin provided a survival rate of >/=65%. Against RCH-69, only regimens containing rifampin and the combination of imipenem-sulbactam had a true bactericidal effect. The best survival rates (>/=80%) were obtained with regimens containing rifampin and sulbactam. These results suggest that nonclassical combinations of beta-lactams, beta-lactamase inhibitors, and rifampin should be considered for the treatment of nosocomial pneumonia due to A. baumannii.  (+info)

Inhibition of beta-lactamase in Neisseria gonorrhoeae by sodium clavulanate. (8/1422)

Sodium clavulanate at subinhibitory concentrations affected the activity of penicillin G, ampicillin, or amoxicillin on beta-lactamase-positive strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae as demonstrated by marked reduction in the minimal inhibitory concentrations of the drugs for the organisms. The compound did not affect the activity of these penicillins on beta-lactamase-negative strains of N. gonorrhoeae. It also had no effect on the activity of cefoxitin against either beta-lactamase-negative or -positive strains. The reduction in minimal inhibitory concentrations of the penicillins for the beta-lactamase-positive organisms brought about by sodium clavulanate is probably due to inhibition of the beta-lactamase by the compound.  (+info)

Linear regression analysis was used to compare penicillin MICs determined with 3,129 recent clinical isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae to MICs obtained with nine other beta-lactam antimicrobial agents. A strong correlation between penicillin MICs and those obtained with other beta-lactams was demonstrated. It may be possible to test penicillin and use MICs obtained with penicillin to predict MICs of other beta-lactam antimicrobials for Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Antimicrobials are among the most important and commonly prescribed drugs in the management of critically ill patients and beta-lactams are the most common antibiotic class used. Critically ill patients pathophysiological factors lead to altered pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of beta-lactams. A comprehensive bibliographic search in PubMed database of all English language articles published from January 2000 to December 2017 was performed, allowing the selection of articles addressing the pharmacokinetics or pharmacodynamics of beta-lactam antibiotics in critically ill patients. In critically ill patients, several factors may increase volume of distribution and enhance renal clearance, inducing high intra- and inter-patient variability in beta-lactam concentration and promoting the risk of antibiotic underdosing. The duration of infusion of beta-lactams has been shown to influence the fT | minimal inhibitory concentration and an improved beta-lactam pharmacodynamics profile may be obtained by

The widespread use of beta-lactam antibiotics has lead to the worldwide appearance of drug-resistant strains. Bacteria have developed resistance to beta-lactams by three main mechanisms: the production of beta-lactamases that catalyze hydrolysis of beta-lactams, the production of low-affinity, drug resistant Penicillin Binding Proteins (PBPs) and the over expression of resistant PBPs. PBPs are interesting targets because they catalyse the last steps of the biosynthesis of peptidoglycan, which is unique in bacteria and has no mammalian analogs, outside the cytoplasmic membrane. Various non-ß-lactam inhibitors of PBPs have been developed with the objective of attempting to stall the development of ß-lactam resistance. Boronic acids are potent ...

Ertapenem is a once-daily broad spectrum carbapenem that is increasingly used to treat polymicrobial osteomyelitis due to diabetic foot and traumatic wound infections. However, limited data exists on ertapenem use for osteomyelitis. This study aimed to characterize outcomes and adverse effects with empiric use of ertapenem for osteomyelitis. A total of 112 patients presenting to Duke, Durham Regional or Durham VA Medical Centers with a suspected diagnosis of osteomyelitis and ertapenem use from 11/2001 to 8/2009 were screened, and 12 subjects met inclusion criteria for the study. Mean age was 60 ± 16 years, 68% were female, 75% were Caucasian, and the most common comorbidities included diabetes (58%), peripheral vascular disease (42%), and history of tobacco use (75%). Over half of the patients presented to a primary care clinic or emergency room greater than six months after the onset of clinical symptoms. Bone culture was obtained for diagnostic guidance in only two cases; and surgical intervention

But that ,begs the question of where the co-opted behaviors came from. True, and I think also the important issue is how this new function arose from a similar function. The evolution, and natural selection, of classes of beta-lactamases are the examples I know. While we havent observed it, the early beta-lactamases are hypothesised to have arisen from cell-wall enzymes and the bacteria were facing an enemy in nature (beta-lactams in fungi). Today, we have artificial beta-lactams that are not seen anywhere in nature, yet there are bacteria resistant to it. One explanation that this new function /arose/ (evolved) in the the last few decades, compared to the initial ones, which mightve ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Selective inactivation of aminoglycosides by newer beta-lactam antibiotics. AU - Jorgensen, J. H.. AU - Crawford, S. A.. PY - 1982/1/1. Y1 - 1982/1/1. N2 - Combinations of aminoglycoside and beta-lactam antibiotics may act synergistically against certain microorganisms. However, aminoglycosides have been shown to interact chemically with certain beta-lactam antibiotics resulting in diminished activity of the aminoglycoside. Two beta-lactam antiotics, moxalactam and cefotaxime, as well as several other beta-lactams in current use, were studied for possible inactivation of gentamicin, tobramycin and amikacin. Aqueous mixtures of each of the three aminoglycosides plus a beta-lactam antibiotic (moxalactam, cefotaxime, cephalothin, carbenicillin, ticarcillin or penicillin) were prepared in ratios of 10:1 and 50:1 (beta-lactam: aminoglycoside). Gentamicin and tobramycin were markedly inactivated by carbenicillin and ticarcillin, and to a lesser degree by penicillin (only at the 50:1 ...
The chromosomally encoded beta-lactamase gene of Klebsiella oxytoca E23004, a strain resistant to cefoperazone and aztreonam, was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli HB101. The molecular mass and pI of this enzyme were 28 kilodaltons and 7.4, respectively. Although the beta-lactamase of K. oxytoca hydrolyzed many cephalosporins, including broad-spectrum drugs, the nucleotide sequence and deduced amino acid sequence lacked homology with chromosomal class C beta-lactamase genes (ampC) of E. coli or Citrobacter freundii. Rather, about 45% nucleotide sequence homology and 40% deduced amino acid sequence homology were observed between the K. oxytoca beta-lactamase and TEM-1, a class A beta-lactamase which does not efficiently hydrolyze cephalosporins. Values of Km, relative Vmax, and relative Vmax/Km for the K. oxytoca beta-lactamase indicated that the enzyme is a penicillinase but that it can hydrolyze cefoperazone effectively and other broad-spectrum cephems weakly. Hence, the chromosomal ...
Because of the popularity of beta-lactam drugs, certain bacteria have been able to develop counter-measures to traditional drug therapies. An enzyme called beta-lactamase is present in many different types of bacteria, which serves to break the beta lactam ring, which effectively nullifies the antibiotics effectiveness. An example such enzyme is the NDM-1 discovered in 2009.. As a response to bacterial resistance to beta-lactam drugs, there are drugs, such as Augmentin/CLA, that are designed to disable the beta-lactamase enzyme. Augmentin/CLA (FGP) is made of amoxicillin, a beta-lactam antibiotic, and clavulanic acid, a beta-lactamase inhibitor. The clavulanic acid is designed to overwhelm all beta-lactamase enzymes, bind irreversibly to them, and effectively serve as an antagonist so that the amoxicillin is not affected by the beta-lactamase enzymes..

The beta-lactam antibiotics are the most widely used group of antibiotics, which exert their effect by interfering with the structural crosslinking of peptidoglycans in bacterial cell walls. Over the past decades, a rapid increase in the number of beta-lactam-resistant clinical isolates is observed. Bacterial resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics can be achieved by any of the following strategies: producing inactivating enzymes called beta-lactamases, altering the beta-lactam targets of penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs), reducing transport of beta-lactams into the periplasmic space via changes in porins, and using the mechanisms for exclusion of beta-lactams by way of efflux pumps. Resistance may result from intrinsic properties of organisms, through gene mutations, and through plasmid- and transposon-specified genes ...
Aim: Evaluation of clinical efectivity of ertapenem (type I. carbapenem antibiotic) monotherapy of community acquired intraabdominal infections in acute abdomen. Material and methods: We retrospectively evaluated 52 patients treated for acute abdomen (inflamatory and perforation) over 16 months in 2011-2012 using ertapenem monotherapy as first line antibiotic. We also evaluated microbiological findings and presence of polyresistant pathogens. Results: Overall efficacy of antibiotic treatment was 86,5%, with complication rates and mortality rates of 40,4% and 3,8% respectively. Average hospital stay was 10,4 (±6,04) days, average antibiotic treatment 6,8 (±3,01) days. Most frequent pathogens were E. coli and Streptococcus sp. ESBL producing microorganisms were detected in 2 patients. 4 of 5 patients with detected Pseudomonas aeruginosa did not reqiure augmentation of antibiotic regime. Results: In accordance with current literature, ertapenem monotherapy is effective and represents an equal ...
Orateur : Thomas G. BERNHARDT (Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology). Penicillin and related beta-lactams are one of our oldest and most widely used antibiotic therapies. Although these drugs have long been known to target the final stages of bacterial cell wall assembly, surprisingly little is understood about the downstream consequences of target inhibition and their contribution to antibacterial activity. Recent work will be presented highlighting the discovery of a previously unappreciated activity of beta-lactams involving the hyper-activation of a quality control system involved in cell wall biogenesis that enhances their lethal mode-of-action..
