The BETA-LACTAMASES hydrolyze the beta lactam ring, accounting for BETA-LACTAM RESISTANCE of infective bacteria.

Concentration and bactericidal activity of fusidic acid and cloxacillin in serum and synovial fluid. (1/171)

Fusidic acid and cloxacillin were studied in patients who underwent joint aspiration for noninfectious disorders. Nine patients were given oral 500 mg fusidic acid tid for 72 h, the last dose being given 4, 8 or 12 h before the joint aspiration. Cloxacillin was administered in a single 2 g iv dose to 9 patients, 0.5, 4 or 8 h before the aspiration. Bactericidal activity was determined against five isolates each of methicillin-susceptible and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Satisfactory activity (> or = 1:3) was detected in the serum in patients who received fusidic acid, while in the synovial fluids titres reflected borderline effectiveness (c. 1:2). Despite drug concentrations and excellent MICs, fusidic acid demonstrated markedly lower inhibitory and bactericidal activity against S. aureus than did cloxacillin.  (+info)

Intrathecal antibiotic therapy for neonatal meningitis. (2/171)

Twenty infants with neonatal meningitis were treated with systemic and lumbar intrathecal antibiotics upon initial diagnosis. Failure to sterilize the CSF in 2-3 days was associated with evidence of ventriculitis in these infants who were then treated with intraventricular antibiotics. 4 infants died, but only 2 of them may be regarded as treatment failure. It is suggested that many deaths from neonatal meningitis may be preventable by early detection and treatment of ventriculitis with intraventricular antibiotics.  (+info)

Minocycline sensitivity related to the phage type of multiply resistant staphylococci. (3/171)

Clinical isolated of multiply antibiotic-resistant strains of Staphlococcus aureus were divided into three groups by phage typing. The most prevalent type, which is usually cloxacillin resistant, was found to be moderately sensitive to minocycline. Unfortunately the degree of sensitivity is not sufficient to warrant the use of the antibiotic in severe staphlococcal infection.  (+info)

Further evolution of a strain of Staphylococcus aureus in vivo: evidence for significant inactivation of flucloxacillin by penicillinase. (4/171)

A strain of Staphylococcus aureus (no. FAR4) has been isolated at intervals, for 32 months, from the sputum of a patient with cystic fibrosis of the lung. Changes in the properties of isolates of this strain over the first 18 months have been reported previously (Lacey et al., 1973 and 1974). During the last 14 months (May 1973 to July 1974), further evolution has occurred to produce a total of 31 distinct phenotypes. Recent changes are as follows. 1. The ability of isolates to produce penicillinase in vitro was closely correlated with flucloxacillin therapy. Inactivation of flucloxacillin by penicillinase was demonstrated by diffusion testing (but not MIC determination) in vitro and may have occurred to a significant extent in vivo. 2. Lincomycin-resistant mutants slowly disappeared from the sputum after the termination of clindamycin therapy. 3. All of the recent isolates were resistant to erythromycin, possibly because of the linkage of the genes coding for erythromycin resistance with those coding for the production of delta-haemolysin; delta-haemolysin may be an important "virulence factor".  (+info)

Antibacterial activity of combinations of cefazolin and semisynthetic penicillins. (5/171)

The antibacterial activity of cephalosporin (CS) and semisynthetic penicillins was studied using CS-resistant strains of Escherichia freundii and Proteus morganii. A synergistic growth inhibitory action toward these microorganisms was demonstrated by a qualitative method and confirmed by a quantitative determination.  (+info)

Questionable history of immediate-type hypersensitivity to penicillin in Staphylococcal endocarditis: treatment based on skin-test results vers-us empirical alternative treatment--A decision analysis. (6/171)

Approximately 10% of the population claim to be allergic to penicillins, but only approximately 10%-30% of these have IgE-mediated reactions to penicillin skin tests. Alternatives to penicillins may be less effective, more toxic, and more expensive. Therefore, we used decision analysis to calculate maximum expected utility and minimum cost for skin-testing or not skin-testing patients who have endocarditis due to Staphylococcus aureus that is susceptible to cloxacillin and who have a questionable history of immediate-type hypersensitivity to penicillin. We used known probabilities of intermediate outcomes, actual costs, and measured utilities and included one-way sensitivity analysis. Whether utility, cost, or average cost-utility was the outcome of interest, skin-testing was preferred to no skin-testing in most conditions. Patients who have endocarditis due to S. aureus that is susceptible to cloxacillin and who also have a questionable history of immediate-type hypersensitivity to penicillin should be skin-tested before starting antibiotic therapy.  (+info)

Mycobacterium ulcerans infection (Buruli ulcer): first reported case in a traveler. (7/171)

A chronic, painless sore developed over a 2-month period on the left calf of a Canadian man traveling for 8 months in Africa. A presumptive diagnosis of a Mycobacterium spp. infection was made despite initially negative biopsy and culture results, after failure of several courses of anti-bacterial antibiotics. Mycobacterium ulcerans was eventually isolated and the lesion progressed despite treatment with multiple anti-mycobacterial agents. The lesion finally responded to wide and repeated excision, aggressive treatment with anti-mycobacterial antibiotics, and split-thickness skin grafting. The isolation and treatment of this unusual organism are discussed.  (+info)

Intraoperative contamination of synthetic vascular grafts. Effect of glove change before graft implantation. A prospective randomised study. (8/171)

OBJECTIVES: to investigate the incidence of intraoperative graft contamination, bacterial species and the influence of change of surgeon's gloves on contamination. DESIGN: a prospective randomised study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: forty patients had implantation of synthetic vascular grafts. All patients received intraoperative cloxacillin (2.0 g) or clindamycin (0.6 g) intravenously. The procedures were randomised to two groups: Group 1 - surgeons changed the gloves before the first contact with the vascular prosthesis and Group 2 - operation without glove change. The growth of all bacterial species from graft segments and from the gloves was recorded. The susceptibility to antibiotics was tested. RESULTS: the number of contaminated grafts was similar in the two groups. Growth of bacteria was recorded from 92.5% (37/40) of the graft segments and 33% (51/156) of glove imprints. Of the cultured species, 75% and 47%, respectively, were identified as coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS). Twenty-eight per cent of CNS were resistant to cloxacillin, 15% to clindamycin, and 10% to cloxacillin and clindamycin. In all, 25% of the CNS strains were resistant to the prophylactic antibiotic used. In 50% of cases, the antibiogram of the CNS strain recovered from gloves agreed with that of the strain harvested from the graft. CONCLUSIONS: a high incidence of graft contamination was found which was not reduced by changing gloves. However, changing gloves did seem to reduce the number of bacterial species.  (+info)

Cloxacillin is a type of antibiotic known as a penicillinase-resistant penicillin. It is used to treat infections caused by bacteria that are resistant to other types of penicillins. Cloxacillin works by interfering with the ability of the bacterial cell wall to grow and multiply, ultimately leading to the death of the bacterium.

Cloxacillin is often used to treat skin infections, pneumonia, and other respiratory tract infections. It is available in various forms, including tablets, capsules, and powder for injection. As with all antibiotics, it is important to take cloxacillin exactly as directed by a healthcare provider, and to complete the full course of treatment, even if symptoms improve before all of the medication has been taken.

Like other penicillins, cloxacillin can cause allergic reactions in some people. It may also interact with other medications, so it is important to inform a healthcare provider of all other medications being taken before starting cloxacillin.

Flucloxacillin is not strictly a medical "definition," but rather it is an antibiotic medication used to treat infections caused by susceptible gram-positive bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, including methicillin-sensitive strains. It is a semisynthetic penicillin derivative that is resistant to degradation by beta-lactamases produced by many bacteria, making it effective against some bacteria that are resistant to other penicillins.

Flucloxacillin works by inhibiting the synthesis of bacterial cell walls, leading to bacterial death. It is often used to treat skin and soft tissue infections, bone and joint infections, and endocarditis caused by susceptible organisms. Like other antibiotics, flucloxacillin should be used judiciously to prevent the development of antimicrobial resistance.

It's important to note that the use of any medication, including flucloxacillin, should be under the guidance and supervision of a healthcare professional, who can consider the individual patient's medical history, current medications, and other factors to determine the most appropriate treatment.

Penicillin G is a type of antibiotic that belongs to the class of medications called penicillins. It is a natural antibiotic derived from the Penicillium fungus and is commonly used to treat a variety of bacterial infections. Penicillin G is active against many gram-positive bacteria, as well as some gram-negative bacteria.

Penicillin G is available in various forms, including an injectable solution and a powder for reconstitution into a solution. It works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to form a cell wall, which ultimately leads to bacterial death. Penicillin G is often used to treat serious infections that cannot be treated with other antibiotics, such as endocarditis (inflammation of the inner lining of the heart), pneumonia, and meningitis (inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord).

It's important to note that Penicillin G is not commonly used for topical or oral treatment due to its poor absorption in the gastrointestinal tract and instability in acidic environments. Additionally, as with all antibiotics, Penicillin G should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure appropriate use and to reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance.

Penicillinase is an enzyme produced by some bacteria that can inactivate penicillin and other beta-lactam antibiotics by breaking down the beta-lactam ring, which is essential for their antimicrobial activity. Bacteria that produce penicillinase are resistant to penicillin and related antibiotics. Penicillinase-resistant penicillins, such as methicillin and oxacillin, have been developed to overcome this form of bacterial resistance.

Penicillins are a group of antibiotics derived from the Penicillium fungus. They are widely used to treat various bacterial infections due to their bactericidal activity, which means they kill bacteria by interfering with the synthesis of their cell walls. The first penicillin, benzylpenicillin (also known as penicillin G), was discovered in 1928 by Sir Alexander Fleming. Since then, numerous semi-synthetic penicillins have been developed to expand the spectrum of activity and stability against bacterial enzymes that can inactivate these drugs.

Penicillins are classified into several groups based on their chemical structure and spectrum of activity:

1. Natural Penicillins (e.g., benzylpenicillin, phenoxymethylpenicillin): These have a narrow spectrum of activity, mainly targeting Gram-positive bacteria such as streptococci and staphylococci. However, they are susceptible to degradation by beta-lactamase enzymes produced by some bacteria.
2. Penicillinase-resistant Penicillins (e.g., methicillin, oxacillin, nafcillin): These penicillins resist degradation by certain bacterial beta-lactamases and are primarily used to treat infections caused by staphylococci, including methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA).
3. Aminopenicillins (e.g., ampicillin, amoxicillin): These penicillins have an extended spectrum of activity compared to natural penicillins, including some Gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Haemophilus influenzae. However, they are still susceptible to degradation by many beta-lactamases.
4. Antipseudomonal Penicillins (e.g., carbenicillin, ticarcillin): These penicillins have activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other Gram-negative bacteria with increased resistance to other antibiotics. They are often combined with beta-lactamase inhibitors such as clavulanate or tazobactam to protect them from degradation.
5. Extended-spectrum Penicillins (e.g., piperacillin): These penicillins have a broad spectrum of activity, including many Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. They are often combined with beta-lactamase inhibitors to protect them from degradation.

Penicillins are generally well-tolerated antibiotics; however, they can cause allergic reactions in some individuals, ranging from mild skin rashes to life-threatening anaphylaxis. Cross-reactivity between different penicillin classes and other beta-lactam antibiotics (e.g., cephalosporins) is possible but varies depending on the specific drugs involved.

Fusidic Acid is a steroid antibiotic, derived from the fungus Fusidium coccineum. It is primarily used to treat skin infections and other susceptible bacterial infections. It works by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis. In medical terms, it can be defined as:

A triterpenoid antibiotic derived from the fungus Fusidium coccineum, used primarily to treat staphylococcal and streptococcal skin infections that are resistant to other antibiotics. It inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to the bacterial elongation factor EF-G, preventing translocation of peptidyl tRNA from the A site to the P site on the ribosome.

It is important to note that resistance to fusidic acid can develop and its use should be reserved for infections caused by organisms known to be susceptible to it. It is not typically used as a first-line antibiotic, but rather as a secondary option when other treatments have failed or are contraindicated.

Methicillin is defined as a narrow-spectrum antibiotic that belongs to the penicillin class. It was initially developed to address the problem of beta-lactamase enzyme production in Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, which made them resistant to earlier penicillins. However, methicillin-resistant strains of S. aureus (MRSA) have since emerged and become a significant global health concern. Methicillin is no longer used clinically due to its high nephrotoxicity, but the term "methicillin-resistant" remains relevant in describing resistant bacteria.

Dicloxacillin is a type of antibiotic known as a penicillinase-resistant penicillin. It is used to treat infections caused by bacteria that are resistant to other types of penicillins. Dicloxacillin is effective against many gram-positive cocci, including staphylococci that produce penicillinases (enzymes that destroy penicillins).

The medical definition of dicloxacillin is:

"A semi-synthetic antibiotic derived from 6-aminopenicillanic acid and dichloroacetyl coenzyme A. It is resistant to staphylococcal penicillinases and is used to treat infections caused by susceptible organisms, including Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes."

Dicloxacillin is available in oral capsule form and is typically taken two to four times daily, depending on the severity of the infection. It is important to take dicloxacillin for the entire prescribed course of treatment, even if symptoms improve, to ensure that the infection is completely treated and to reduce the risk of antibiotic resistance.

Like all antibiotics, dicloxacillin can cause side effects, including gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. It may also cause allergic reactions in some people, ranging from mild skin rashes to life-threatening anaphylaxis. People with a history of penicillin allergy should inform their healthcare provider before taking dicloxacillin or any other antibiics.

"Sarcina" is not a term that has a specific medical definition in current use. However, in older medical literature or in the context of microbiology, "Sarcina" refers to a genus of Gram-positive, coccoid bacteria that are arranged in tetrads or packets of 4, 8, or 16 cells. These bacteria were once thought to be responsible for a variety of infections, but they are now considered to be rare causes of disease and are not typically tested for in clinical settings.

In modern medical terminology, the term "sarcina" is more commonly used outside of medicine, particularly in the context of physical fitness or exercise, where it refers to a unit of weightlifting or strength training that involves lifting a weight equal to one's own bodyweight.

Anti-bacterial agents, also known as antibiotics, are a type of medication used to treat infections caused by bacteria. These agents work by either killing the bacteria or inhibiting their growth and reproduction. There are several different classes of anti-bacterial agents, including penicillins, cephalosporins, fluoroquinolones, macrolides, and tetracyclines, among others. Each class of antibiotic has a specific mechanism of action and is used to treat certain types of bacterial infections. It's important to note that anti-bacterial agents are not effective against viral infections, such as the common cold or flu. Misuse and overuse of antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistance, which is a significant global health concern.

A cephalosporinase is an enzyme that can break down and inactivate cephalosporins, a group of antibiotics commonly used to treat various bacterial infections. Bacteria that produce this enzyme are referred to as "cephalosporin-resistant" or "cephalosporinase-producing" organisms. The production of cephalosporinases by bacteria can lead to treatment failures and make infections more difficult to manage.

Cephalosporins are broad-spectrum antibiotics, which means they can be effective against a wide range of bacterial species. However, some bacteria have developed resistance mechanisms, such as the production of cephalosporinases, to counteract their effects. These enzymes hydrolyze the beta-lactam ring in cephalosporins, rendering them ineffective.

There are different classes of cephalosporinases (e.g., Ambler classes A, C, and D), each with distinct characteristics and substrate profiles. Some cephalosporinases can hydrolyze a broader range of cephalosporins than others, leading to varying degrees of resistance.

To overcome cephalosporinase-mediated resistance, alternative antibiotics or combinations of antibiotics may be used. Additionally, the development of new cephalosporins with improved stability against these enzymes is an ongoing area of research in the field of antimicrobial drug discovery.

Ampicillin is a penicillin-type antibiotic used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. It works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to form cell walls, which are essential for their survival. This causes the bacterial cells to become unstable and eventually die.

The medical definition of Ampicillin is:

"A semi-synthetic penicillin antibiotic, derived from the Penicillium mold. It is used to treat a variety of infections caused by susceptible gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Ampicillin is effective against both aerobic and anaerobic organisms. It is commonly used to treat respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, meningitis, and endocarditis."

It's important to note that Ampicillin is not effective against infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) or other bacteria that have developed resistance to penicillins. Additionally, overuse of antibiotics like Ampicillin can lead to the development of antibiotic resistance, which is a significant public health concern.

Staphylococcal infections are a type of infection caused by Staphylococcus bacteria, which are commonly found on the skin and nose of healthy people. However, if they enter the body through a cut, scratch, or other wound, they can cause an infection.

There are several types of Staphylococcus bacteria, but the most common one that causes infections is Staphylococcus aureus. These infections can range from minor skin infections such as pimples, boils, and impetigo to serious conditions such as pneumonia, bloodstream infections, and toxic shock syndrome.

Symptoms of staphylococcal infections depend on the type and severity of the infection. Treatment typically involves antibiotics, either topical or oral, depending on the severity and location of the infection. In some cases, hospitalization may be necessary for more severe infections. It is important to note that some strains of Staphylococcus aureus have developed resistance to certain antibiotics, making them more difficult to treat.

Penicillin V, also known as Penicillin V Potassium, is an antibiotic medication used to treat various bacterial infections. It belongs to the class of medications called penicillins, which work by interfering with the bacteria's ability to form a protective covering (cell wall), causing the bacteria to become more susceptible to destruction by the body's immune system.

Penicillin V is specifically used to treat infections of the respiratory tract, skin, and ear. It is also used to prevent recurrent rheumatic fever and chorea (Sydenham's chorea), a neurological disorder associated with rheumatic fever.

The medication is available as oral tablets or liquid solutions and is typically taken by mouth every 6 to 12 hours, depending on the severity and type of infection being treated. As with any antibiotic, it is important to take Penicillin V exactly as directed by a healthcare professional and for the full duration of treatment, even if symptoms improve before all doses have been taken.

Penicillin V is generally well-tolerated, but like other penicillins, it can cause allergic reactions in some people. It may also interact with certain medications, so it is important to inform a healthcare provider of any other medications being taken before starting Penicillin V therapy.

Sulfadimethoxine is an antimicrobial agent, specifically a sulfonamide. It is defined as a synthetic antibacterial drug that contains the sulfanilamide nucleus and is used to treat various bacterial infections in both humans and animals. In human medicine, it is used to treat urinary tract infections, bronchitis, and traveler's diarrhea. In veterinary medicine, it is commonly used to treat coccidiosis in animals such as poultry, cattle, and pets.

The drug works by inhibiting the bacterial synthesis of folic acid, which is essential for bacterial growth. It is usually administered orally and is available in various forms, including tablets, capsules, and powder for suspension. As with any medication, it should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure its safe and effective use.

Beta-lactamases are enzymes produced by certain bacteria that can break down and inactivate beta-lactam antibiotics, such as penicillins, cephalosporins, and carbapenems. This enzymatic activity makes the bacteria resistant to these antibiotics, limiting their effectiveness in treating infections caused by these organisms.

Beta-lactamases work by hydrolyzing the beta-lactam ring, a structural component of these antibiotics that is essential for their antimicrobial activity. By breaking down this ring, the enzyme renders the antibiotic ineffective against the bacterium, allowing it to continue growing and potentially causing harm.

There are different classes of beta-lactamases (e.g., Ambler Class A, B, C, and D), each with distinct characteristics and mechanisms for breaking down various beta-lactam antibiotics. The emergence and spread of bacteria producing these enzymes have contributed to the growing problem of antibiotic resistance, making it increasingly challenging to treat infections caused by these organisms.

To overcome this issue, researchers have developed beta-lactamase inhibitors, which are drugs that can bind to and inhibit the activity of these enzymes, thus restoring the effectiveness of certain beta-lactam antibiotics. Examples of such combinations include amoxicillin/clavulanate (Augmentin) and piperacillin/tazobactam (Zosyn).

Oxacillin is a type of antibiotic known as a penicillinase-resistant penicillin. It is used to treat infections caused by bacteria that are resistant to other types of penicillins. Oxacillin is commonly used to treat infections of the skin, soft tissue, and bone.

Here is the medical definition of oxacillin:

Oxacillin is a semisynthetic antibiotic derived from penicillin that is resistant to staphylococcal penicillinases. It is used to treat infections caused by susceptible strains of staphylococci and some streptococci, including penicillinase-producing staphylococci. Oxacillin is available as a sterile powder for injection or as a oral capsule.

It is important to note that the overuse or misuse of antibiotics like oxacillin can lead to the development of antibiotic resistance, which makes infections harder to treat. It's essential to use antibiotics only when necessary and as directed by a healthcare professional.

Cephalothin is a type of antibiotic known as a first-generation cephalosporin. It is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, bone and joint infections, and urinary tract infections.

Cephalothin works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to form cell walls, which are essential for their survival. It binds to specific proteins in the bacterial cell wall, causing the wall to become unstable and ultimately leading to the death of the bacterium.

Like other antibiotics, cephalothin is only effective against certain types of bacteria, and it should be used under the direction of a healthcare professional. It is important to take the full course of treatment as directed, even if symptoms improve, to ensure that the infection is fully treated and to reduce the risk of developing antibiotic resistance.

Common side effects of cephalothin include gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. More serious side effects may include allergic reactions, kidney damage, and seizures. It is important to inform your healthcare provider of any medical conditions you have or medications you are taking before starting treatment with cephalothin.

Beta-lactams are a class of antibiotics that include penicillins, cephalosporins, carbapenems, and monobactams. They contain a beta-lactam ring in their chemical structure, which is responsible for their antibacterial activity. The beta-lactam ring inhibits the bacterial enzymes necessary for cell wall synthesis, leading to bacterial death. Beta-lactams are commonly used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections, urinary tract infections, and bone and joint infections. However, some bacteria have developed resistance to beta-lactams through the production of beta-lactamases, enzymes that can break down the beta-lactam ring and render the antibiotic ineffective. To overcome this resistance, beta-lactam antibiotics are often combined with beta-lactamase inhibitors, which protect the beta-lactam ring from degradation.
