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)

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

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 ratio), ...
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..

We conducted a prospective, randomized, double-blind trial comparing ertapenem (1 g once daily) with piperacillin-tazobactam (3.375 g every 6 h) as parenteral treatment for 540 adults with complicated skin and skin-structure infections. The most common diagnoses were skin or soft-tissue abscesses and lower-extremity infections associated with diabetes. The mean duration (± standard deviation) of therapy was 9.1 ± 3.1 days for ertapenem and 9.8 ± 3.3 days for piperacillin-tazobactam. At the assessment of primary efficacy end point, 10-21 days after treatment, 82.4% of those who received ertapenem and 84.4% of those who received piperacillin-tazobactam were cured. The difference in response rates, adjusting for the patients assigned strata, was -2.0% (95% confidence interval, -10.2% to 6.2%), indicating that the response rates in the 2 treatment groups were equivalent. Cure rates for the 2 treatment groups were similar when compared by stratum, diagnosis, and severity of infection. The ...

Ertapenem is a potent carbapenem antibiotic for most clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae, with a typical MIC at which 90% of the isolates tested are inhibited of 0.03 to 0.06 μg/ml (6, 9), but occasional strains for which the MICs are ≥16 μg/ml have been detected (6, 7). In one such strain resistance was dependent on the presence of the plasmid-mediated extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) SHV-2 and additional host events presumably affecting ertapenem permeativity (7). Further studies were undertaken to elucidate the contribution of β-lactamase and host mutation to such exceptional resistance.. The K. pneumoniae strain for which the ertapenem MIC was 16 μg/ml was treated with ethidium bromide to cure the resident plasmid. The ertapenem MIC for the resulting strain, C2, was still elevated at l μg/ml, and the strain was found to be defective in expression of outer membrane porins OmpK35 and OmpK36 (10). To evaluate the influence of different β-lactamases on the ertapenem ...
Growth of E. coli at pH 5 protected the bacteria against the lytic effect of beta lactam antibiotics typically observed when the cells are grown at pH 7 or 7.5, i.e., the pH values routinely used in laboratory experiments. In contrast, the typical effects of beta lactam antibiotics on cellular shape and elongation and cell division appeared to be similar in cultures grown under neutral and acid pH conditions. The pH-dependent antibiotic tolerance can also be demonstrated with pneumococci, staphylococci, streptococci, and Bacillus subtilis. We suggest that the mechanism of the pH-dependent antibiotic tolerance may involve either the production of a more stable plasma membrane or the suppression of the activity of a murein hydrolase(s) that catalyzes the antibiotic-induced lysis; at least a fraction of these enzyme molecules may be localized at the cell surface and be accessible to experimental manipulation.. ...

Two different strains of Escherichia coli exhibiting unusual patterns of resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics were isolated from patients at Cochin Hospital. Both isolates showed a low level of resistance to amoxycillin, ticarcillin and ureidopenicillins but were susceptible to cephalosporins, aztreonam and imipenem; beta-lactamase inhibitors potentiated the activities of the beta-lactams to only a limited extent. All resistance characteristics of the strains were transferable by conjugation to E. coli K12. Resistance was shown to be due to beta-lactamases of pI 5.20 and relative molecular masses of 24,000. The hydrolytic and inhibition profiles of these enzymes were similar to each other but differed from those of broad-spectrum beta-lactamases (TEM-1). The rates of hydrolysis (Vmax) of amoxycillin (c. 200%) were higher than that for TEM-1 (84%). Ticarcillin, ureidopenicillins and cephaloridine were hydrolyzed slowly. However, as for TEM-1, no hydrolysis was observed with cefoxitin, third generation
A beta-lactamase inhibitor is a drug given in conjunction with a beta-lactam antibiotic. Although the inhibitor does not usually have significant antibiotic activity on its own,[1] it still plays an important role by disabling or slowing down the action of beta-lactamase. Beta-lactamase inhibitors in clinical use include clavulanic acid and its potassium salt (usually combined with amoxicillin or ticarcillin), sulbactam and tazobactam. ...
The selection of piperacillin / tazobactam to treat an individual patient should take into account the appropriateness of using a broad-spectrum semi-synthetic penicillin based on factors such as the severity of the infection and the prevalence of resistance to other suitable antibacterial agents.. Before initiating therapy with piperacillin / tazobactam, careful inquiry should be made concerning previous hypersensitivity reactions to penicillins, other beta-lactam agents (e.g. cephalosporin, monobactam or carbapenem) and other allergens. Serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity (anaphylactic/anaphylactoid [including shock]) reactions have been reported in patients receiving therapy with penicillins, including piperacillin / tazobactam. These reactions are more likely to occur in persons with a history of sensitivity to multiple allergens. Serious hypersensitivity reactions require the discontinuation of the antibiotic, and may require administration of epinephrine and other emergency ...
Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC)-producing bacteria are a group of emerging highly drug-resistant Gram-negative bacilli causing infections associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Once confined to outbreaks in the northeastern United States (US), they have spread throughout the US and most of the world. KPCs are an important mechanism of resistance for an increasingly wide range of Gram-negative bacteria and are no longer limited to K pneumoniae. KPC-producing bacteria are often misidentified by routine microbiological susceptibility testing and incorrectly reported as sensitive to carbapenems; however, resistance to the carbapenem antibiotic ertapenem is common and a better indicator of the presence of KPCs. Carbapenem antibiotics are generally not effective against KPC-producing organisms. The best therapeutic approach to KPC-producing organisms has yet to be defined; however, common treatments based on in vitro susceptibility testing are the polymyxins, tigecycline, and ...
Background and Objectives: Pathogenic bacteria, such as Escherichia coli are dangerous for human population due to acquisition of resistance genes to beta-lactam antibiotics. This resistance is due to extended spectrum β lactamase (ESBL) genes, which are caused by plasmids, transposons, and/or mutation. The main cause of resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics ...
Gram-negative bacteria are protected against external attack by an outer membrane. However, general diffusion porins located in this membrane allow the entry, by simple diffusion, of small molecules and, among them, antibiotics (beta-lactams and fluoroquinolones). Strains of bacteria resistant to beta-lactams have shown either a low porin density in the outer membrane, or some mutations at the level of porins affecting their internal size. Understand how antibiotics diffuse through these porins can help researcher to develop new antibiotics with an improved penetration especially when resistance becomes a serious problem for infectious disease. Recent experimental investigations pointed out how the diffusion of antibiotics through a porin is a molecular-based process: during diffusion the antibiotics interact strongly with the amino acids of the porin. Changing either the charge or the hydrophobicity of antibiotics the interaction strenght with the porin changes as well. Using a recent algorithm ...
We talked about penicillin in lecture. This most famous beta-lactam. The News Item associated with Chapter 21 also addressed issues related to antibiotics and penicillin. We talked about the mechanism of action of penicillin and we saw this mechanism "at work" watching the movie of the bacteria dying a horrible penicillin-caused death. Bacteria have cell walls and penicillin interfers with the formation of cell walls. We discussed briefly the chemistry of this mode of action. Some of the enzymes involved in cell wall formation react with the beta-lactam. By adding the penicillin to the enzyme, the enzyme becomes unable to perform its function. There was some confusion as to whether the beta-lactam is attacked by an amine or by an alcohol, that is, whether the lactam-opening is a transamination or whether a strained amide is converted into a strain-free ester. I have since looked into this matter and here is what I found ...

The varied effects of beta-lactam antibiotics on cell division, cell elongation, and cell shape in E. coli are shown to be due to the presence of three essential penicillin binding proteins with distinct roles in these three processes. (A) Cell shape: beta-Lactams that specifically result in the production of ovoid cells bind to penicillin binding protein 2 (molecular weight 66,000). A mutant has been isolated that fails to bind beta-lactams to protein 2, and that grows as round cells. (B) Cell division: beta-Lactams that specifically inhibit cell division bind preferentially to penicillin binding protein 3 (molecular weight 60,000). A temperature-sensitive cell division mutant has been shown to have a thermolabile protein 3. (C) Cell elongation: One beta-lactam that preferentially inhibits cell elongation and causes cell lysis binds preferentially to binding protein 1 (molecular weight 91,000). Evidence is presented that penicillin bulge formation is due to the inhibition of proteins 2 and 3 in ...
INFECTION CONTROL STAFF FACT SHEET Extended Spectrum Beta Lactamase (ESBL) producing organisms WHAT ARE THEY? • • • • • ESBLs (extended spectrum beta lactamases) are enzymes that may be produced by Gram negative bacteria. They were first reported in 1983. The bacteria have become resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics, by their ability to produce an enzyme (beta-lactamase) which can break down the antibiotics (eg. penicillins and cephalosporins). ESBL producing organisms not only have the ability to break down beta-lactam antibiotics but they are also able to transfer these resistance enzymes to other microorganisms via plasmids. The bacteria may also be resistant to other antibiotics such as aminoglycosides (eg. gentamycin and tobramycin) and quinolones (eg. ciprofloxacin). The most common ESBL producing organisms include Klebsiella spp, Enterobacter spp, Acinetobacter spp and Escherichia coli. HOW ARE THEY SPREAD? • • • ESBL producing organisms usually colonise the bowel without ...

Its been more than a year since the "Indian superbug" NDM-1 - not actually a bacterium, but a gene that directs production of an enzyme - hit the news. The enzyme, whose acronym is short for New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase-1, disables almost all antibiotics directed against it, leaving the bacteria in which the gene appears vulnerable to only two imperfect and sometimes toxic drugs.. The enzyme and its gene, blaNDM-1, were first identified in 2008 in people who had traveled in India or sought medical care in South Asia. Hence its name: Many beta-lactamases, enzymes that denature the very large class of everyday antibiotics known as beta-lactams, are named for countries and cities where they were first identified. Since its identification, NDM-1 has been discovered in patients in more than a dozen countries and has also been found to be widely harboured outside hospitals in India, and in surface waters and sewage there.. The unveiling of NDM-1 clearly caused embarrassment for India, and media ...
Its very interesting. On one hand you know enzymes function as catalysts. So they are responsible for regulating and controlling any chemical reaction. But doesnt this strike to your mind whether something is required to regulate the enzymatic actions as well? Of course, a control mechanism is also set to operate the activities of enzymes. Exemplifying the control mechanism Lets pick up the simple example of bacterial action on the body cell and the reaction of antibiotics on it.. Do you find any correlation? You too know that antibiotics are meant to inhibit the bacterial action in the body. You have heard about penicillin. This particular antibiotic now can be resisted by bacteria now.. How is this possible? Actually enzyme action inside the cells can be either accelerated or inhibited by bringing modification within the cell structure. In case of penicillin, the enzyme known as beta-lactamases catalyzes the hydrolysis of the beta-lactam ring present inside the antibiotic molecule. As a ...

Beta-lactamases (β-lactamases, also known as penicillinase) are enzymes (EC 3.5.2.6) produced by bacteria, that provide multi-resistance to β-lactam antibiotics such as penicillins, cephalosporins, cephamycins, and carbapenems (ertapenem), although carbapenems are relatively resistant to beta-lactamase. Beta-lactamase provides antibiotic resistance by breaking the antibiotics structure. These antibiotics all have a common element in their molecular structure: a four-atom ring known as a β-lactam. Through hydrolysis, the lactamase enzyme breaks the β-lactam ring open, deactivating the molecules antibacterial properties. Beta-lactam antibiotics are typically used to treat a broad spectrum of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Beta-lactamases produced by Gram-negative organisms are usually secreted, especially when antibiotics are present in the environment. The structure of a Streptomyces β-lactamase is given by 1BSG. Penicillinase is a specific type of β-lactamase, showing ...

Discussion. In the present study, it was documented that tetracyclines (33.6%), fluoroquinolones (26.5%) and beta-lactams/ aminoglycosides (20.4%) constituted the majority of antimicrobials used in livestock animal production in southwestern Nigeria. The study also found that overall antibiotic consumption increased across the years by 40.4% between 2010 and 2012, whereas the annual livestock growth rate in the area is 2% (Ikhatua 2000). Unlike other antibiotics, the use of tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones, beta-lactams/aminoglycosides and macrolides increased consistently across the years. In addition, a wet-dry season gradient in the quantities of antibiotics consumed over the study period was documented, with significantly higher consumption during the rainy season.. The finding that tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones and beta-lactams/aminoglycosides were the leading antimicrobials used in livestock production in the study area is consistent with a previous report (Adesokan et al. 2013), which ...

Just over a quarter (26.3%) of patients were transported directly from the scene (of injury) to the hospital; they had a median time from injury to antibiotics of 170 minutes.. A subgroup of 13.2% patients travelled via a clinic and received antibiotics at the clinic after a median of 230 minutes after injury. The remaining 60.6% also travelled via a clinic but were not given antibiotics at the clinic, only receiving antibiotics at the hospital a median of 570 minutes after injury. There was a statistically significant difference in median times between patients who received clinic antibiotics and patients where the clinic omitted antibiotics (P,0.05). Other comparisons between routes were nonsignificant, possibly due to the small sample size.. Patients whose antibiotics were omitted by the clinic were 22 times more likely to experience delay greater than 3 hours (P=0.010) when compared to direct transfer from the scene, while patients who received clinic antibiotics were only 1.5 times more ...

Background and Objective: The production of carbapenemases especially Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC) is the most important mechanism of enzymatic resistance in isolated Enterobacteriaceae such as K. pneumoniae. The purpose of this study was detected of the carbapenemase producer K. pneumoniae strains with phenotypic and genotypic methods. Method: Out of 800 strains, 270 K. pneumoniae strains (33.7%), were obtained. Antibiotic susceptibility test was performed by disk diffusion method in accordance with CLSI guidelines. Carbapenem resistant strains were identified by the Modified Hodge Test based on CLSI instruction and PCR for surveying the presence of bla-KPC gene. Results: A total 270 K. pneumoniae strains were collected. Antibiotic susceptibility test results showed the highest and lowest resistance was related to piperacillin (60.6%) and carbapenems (14.6%) respectively. 80.5% (33 of 41) isolates were positive by MHT, but all of them (100%) were negative for amplification of the bla-KPC
