Acute bronchopulmonary infection due to Streptococcus milleri in a child with cystic fibrosis. (1/414)

An 8 year old girl with cystic fibrosis had severe respiratory disease associated with chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa bronchopulmonary infection. Despite regular courses of intravenous antipseudomonal antibiotics, she continued to deteriorate over 18 months with persistent productive cough, worsening respiratory function, and increasing oxygen dependence. During her 11th admission Streptococcus milleri was isolated from sputum cultures in addition to P aeruginosa. She failed to respond to antipseudomonal antibiotics but improved dramatically with the addition of intravenous benzylpenicillin. Although S milleri is considered a normal mouth commensal and its isolation from sputum of cystic fibrosis patients is of uncertain significance, it was associated with clinically significant infection in this child. S milleri was eradicated with antibiotic treatment and clinical improvement has been maintained.  (+info)

Intravenous colistin as therapy for nosocomial infections caused by multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii. (2/414)

Sixty nosocomial infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii resistant to aminoglycosides, cephalosporins, quinolones, penicillins, monobactams, and imipenem were treated with colistin (one patient had two infections that are included as two different cases). The infections were pneumonia (33% of patients), urinary tract infection (20%), primary bloodstream infection (15%), central nervous system infection (8%), peritonitis (7%), catheter-related infection (7%), and otitis media (2%). A good outcome occurred for 35 patients (58%), and three patients died within the first 48 hours of treatment. The poorest results were observed in cases of pneumonia: only five (25%) of 20 had a good outcome. A good outcome occurred for four of five patients with central nervous system infections, although no intrathecal treatment was given. The main adverse effect of treatment was renal failure; 27% of patients with initially normal renal function had renal failure, and renal function worsened in 58% of patients with abnormal baseline creatinine levels. Colistin may be a good therapeutic option for the treatment of severe infections caused by multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa and A. baumannii.  (+info)

Comparison of selective broth medium plus neomycin-nalidixic acid agar and selective broth medium plus Columbia colistin-nalidixic acid agar for detection of group B streptococcal colonization in women. (3/414)

The combination of neomycin-nalidixic acid (NNA) agar and a selective broth medium (SBM) has recently been shown to improve the sensitivity of screening cultures for group B streptococcal (GBS) carriage in women. Because of the relatively high cost of NNA agar, a study was initiated to determine whether Columbia colistin-nalidixic acid (CNA) agar would be an equally sensitive, more economical alternative. A total of 580 cervical-vaginal and/or rectal specimens submitted for detection of GBS were included in the study. Each was plated onto NNA and CNA agar and then inoculated into SBM. GBS were recovered from 95 of 580 (16.4%) specimens, including 61 isolates from CNA, 74 from NNA, 73 from the CNA-SMB combination, and 86 from the NNA-SMB tandem. Of those, 22 isolates were recovered on NNA but not CNA, 9 were cultured on CNA but not NNA, 52 were isolated on both media, and 12 were recovered from subcultures of SBM only. The overall sensitivity of CNA alone (64. 2%) was statistically significantly less than that of NNA agar (77. 9%), as was the sensitivity of combination of CNA plus SBM (76.8%) compared to that of NNA plus SBM (90.5%). Based on these findings, CNA should not be considered an acceptable alternative to NNA for the detection of GBS colonization in women despite potential cost savings.  (+info)

In vitro activities of membrane-active peptides alone and in combination with clinically used antimicrobial agents against Stenotrophomonas maltophilia. (4/414)

The in vitro activities of buforin II, cecropin P1, and magainin II, alone and in combination with six clinically used antimicrobial agents, against 12 clinical isolates of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia were investigated. Antimicrobial activities were measured by MIC and time-kill studies. The isolates were susceptible to the peptides at concentrations in the range of 0.50 to 16 microg/ml. Synergy was observed when the peptides were combined with polymyxin E, meropenem, ceftazidime, piperacillin, and clarithromycin.  (+info)

Comparison of isolation of Haemophilus vaginalis (Corynebacterium vaginale) from peptone-starch-dextrose agar and Columbia colistin-nalidoxic acid agar. (5/414)

A total of 447 cervical or vaginal specimens were inoculated in parallel onto peptone-starch-dextrose (PSD) and Columbia colistin (10 mg/ml)-nalidixic acid (15 mug/ml) (CNA) agar and were incubated for 48 h at 35 degrees C in an atmosphere with 2 to 10% CO2. One hundred (22.4%) of the cultures were positive for Haemophilus vaginalis. Forty-eight of the isolates were recovered from both PSD and Columbia CNA agar, five from PSD only, and 47 from Columbia CNA agar only (P less than 0.001). On Columbia CNA agar, 76 of the isolates were detected after 24 h of incubation, and the remainder were detected within 4 days of incubation.  (+info)

Contemporary assessment of antimicrobial susceptibility testing methods for polymyxin B and colistin: review of available interpretative criteria and quality control guidelines. (6/414)

The emergence of infections caused by multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter spp. has necessitated the search for alternative parenteral agents such as the polymyxins. The National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) documents do not currently provide interpretative criteria for the testing of the polymyxins, colistin and polymyxin B. Therefore, an evaluation of the antimicrobial activity of colistin and polymyxin B was initiated using 200 bloodstream infection pathogens collected through the SENTRY Antimicrobial Surveillance Program. All susceptibility tests were performed according to the NCCLS recommendations. Polymyxin B and colistin displayed a nearly identical spectrum of activity, exhibiting excellent potency against P. aeruginosa (MIC(90), 2 microg/ml) and Acinetobacter sp. (MIC(90), 2 microg/ml). In contrast, they showed limited activity against some other nonfermentative bacilli such as Burkholderia cepacia (MIC(90), >/=128 microg/ml). Excellent correlation was achieved between broth microdilution and agar dilution tests (r = 0.96 to 0.98); 94.3% of the results were +/-1 log(2) dilution between the methods used for both compounds. At a resistance breakpoint of >/=4 microg/ml for both agents, unacceptable false-susceptible or very major errors were noted for colistin (5%) and polymyxin B (6%). Modified zone criteria for colistin (/=14 mm) and polymyxin B (/=14 mm) were suggested, but some degree of error persisted (>/=3.5%). It is recommended that all susceptible disk diffusion results be confirmed by MIC tests using the preferred reference NCCLS method. The quality control (QC) ranges listed in the product package insert require an adjusted range by approximately 3 mm for both NCCLS gram-negative quality control strains. This evaluation of in vitro susceptibility test methods for the polymyxin class drugs confirmed continued serious testing error with the disk diffusion method, the possible need for breakpoint adjustments, and the recalculation of disk diffusion QC ranges. Clinical laboratories should exclusively use MIC methods to assist the therapeutic application of colistin or polymyxin B until disk diffusion test modifications are sanctioned and published by the NCCLS.  (+info)

In vitro pharmacodynamic properties of colistin and colistin methanesulfonate against Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from patients with cystic fibrosis. (7/414)

The in vitro pharmacodynamic properties of colistin and colistin methanesulfonate were investigated by studying the MICs, time-kill kinetics, and postantibiotic effect (PAE) against mucoid and nonmucoid strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from patients with cystic fibrosis. Twenty-three clinical strains, including multiresistant strains, and one type strain were selected for MIC determination. Eleven strains were resistant; MICs for these strains were >128 mg/liter. For the susceptible strains, MICs of colistin ranged from 1 to 4 mg/liter, while the MICs of colistin methanesulfonate were significantly higher and ranged from 4 to 16 mg/liter. The time-kill kinetics were investigated with three strains at drug concentrations ranging from 0.5 to 64 times the MIC. Colistin showed extremely rapid killing, resulting in complete elimination at the highest concentrations within 5 min, while colistin methanesulfonate killed more slowly, requiring a concentration of 16 times the MIC to achieve complete killing within 24 h. Colistin exhibited a significant PAE of 2 to 3 h at 16 times the MIC against the three strains after 15 min of exposure. For colistin methanesulfonate, PAEs were shorter at the concentrations tested. Colistin methanesulfonate had lower overall bactericidal and postantibiotic activities than colistin, even when adjusted for differences in MICs. Our data suggest that doses of colistin methanesulfonate higher than the recommended 2 to 3 mg/kg of body weight every 12 h may be required for the effective treatment of P. aeruginosa infections in cystic fibrosis patients.  (+info)

Bronchoconstriction following nebulised colistin in cystic fibrosis. (8/414)

Nebulised colistin is regularly used as antipseudomonal therapy in children with cystic fibrosis. We assessed bronchoconstriction in response to nebulised colistin in 58 children. Nebulised colistin significantly reduced FEV(1), MEF(25%), and SaO(2) for 15 minutes. In 20 children the reduction was greater than 10% from baseline FEV(1), and was still at that level in five at 30 minutes. Subjective assessment, baseline FEV(1), and serum IgE were unable to identify susceptible children. It is recommended that children receiving colistin should be carefully assessed for bronchoconstriction.  (+info)

Colistin therapy is commonly necessary for the treatment of serious infections caused by CR Gram-negative bacteria (4). Trends toward elevated colistin MICs have been noted worldwide (5, 8), underlining the importance of accurate colistin susceptibility results. Also, suggestions for the optimal methods to be used for colistin ST have not been formulated by the CLSI. In the present study, we evaluated the performances of six colistin ST methods against carbapenem-nonsusceptible K. pneumoniae and A. baumannii clinical isolates with provisionally elevated colistin MICs.. Much debate on the need to add the surfactant P80 to test systems for polymyxins has recently arisen. Overall, the available evidence for the performance of BMD-P80 in testing of isolates with elevated colistin MICs is currently limited. We observed that BMD-P80 showed the highest EA and a relatively high CA with BMD but produced significantly low MICs (P , 0.001) (data not shown); differences in susceptibility rates were modest ...
Colistin is now a last line of defense against infections caused by MDR gram-negative organisms (3, 30, 33, 35). Despite renewed interest in the clinical use of colistin, confusion has surrounded its use in susceptibility studies, in particular MIC measurement, as well as in microbiological assays used to measure colistin concentrations in biological fluids. Information on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of CMS and colistin, especially in critically ill patients, is also lacking (31, 38). Study of the antibacterial activity of CMS, the parenteral form of colistin, has proven complicated due to the hydrolytic conversion of CMS to colistin (25); and this is reflected in the literature (30). Prior to the present study, the relative contributions of CMS and colistin to antibacterial activity have, to our knowledge, never been directly investigated.. The concentrations of CMS chosen for the present study (8.0 and 32 mg/liter) represent the concentrations achievable in plasma in vivo ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A Novel Phenotypic Method To Screen for Plasmid-Mediated Colistin Resistance among Enterobacteriales. AU - Bell, Drew T.. AU - Bergman, Yehudit. AU - Kazmi, Abida Q.. AU - Lewis, Shawna. AU - Tamma, Pranita. AU - Simner, Patricia. PY - 2019/5/1. Y1 - 2019/5/1. N2 - Plasmid-mediated colistin resistance (PMCR), a consequence of the mcr genes, is a significant public health concern given its potential to easily spread among clinical pathogens. Recently, it was discovered that MCR enzymes require zinc for activity. Thus, we modified the colistin broth-disk elution (CBDE) test to screen for plasmid-mediated colistin resistance (PMCR) genes based on any reduction of colistin MIC in the presence of EDTA. Eighty-five isolates of the order Enterobacteriales (12 mcr positive) were tested by CBDE ± EDTA. The sensitivity and specificity of the EDTA-CBDE method to detect PMCR compared to the molecular genotype results were 100% and 95.8%, respectively. Isolates positive by the EDTA-CBDE test ...
Newly published findings by a team of researchers in China describe the discovery of a plasmid-mediated mechanism in E. coli isolated from pigs that confers resistance to colistin - widely regarded as an antibiotic of last resort for treating drug resistant infections.. The researchers discovered the mechanism during a surveillance project looking at antibiotic resistance in E. coli from food animals when they found a large increase in the prevalence of colistin resistance in isolates. Further investigation revealed that a strain isolated from a pig, SHP45, possessed colistin resistance that could be transferred horizontally to another strain.. These findings led to the identification of a gene, mcr-1, conferring resistance to colistin and located on a plasmid within the bacterial cell. This is the first time that a resistance mechanism against polymyxin antibiotics like colistin has been found that is plasmid mediated and can be transferred horizontally to other bacteria.. Further studies ...

Colistin eller polymyxin E er et antibiotikum, der produceres af visse stammer af Paenibacillus polymyxa var. colistinus. Colistin er en blanding af to cykliske polypeptider colistin A og B Da colistin binder til de Gram-negative bakteriers lipopolysaccharid (LPS, også kaldet endotoxin), er det som antibiotikum effektivt mod de fleste Gram-negative baciller. Colistin er en årtier gammel medicin, der faldt i unåde på grund af sin nefrotoksicitet. Det er fortsat et af de sidste forsvar over for multiresistente Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae og Acinetobacter. NDM-1 metallo-beta-lactamase multidrug-resistente enterobakterier har også vist en modtagelighed over for colistin. Colistin blev tidligere givet som intramuskulær injektion mod Gram-negative infektioner, men benyttes nu mest som aerosol ved cystisk fibrose.[1] Colistinresistens er blevet identificeret både i Europa, USA og Kina i Escherichia coli stamme SHP45, hvor resistensen er båret af et plasmid med mcr-1-genet.[2] ...
Polymyxin E, produced by Paenibacillus polymyxa, is an important antibiotic normally against Gram-negative pathogens. In this study, we found that polymyxin E can kill its producer P. polymyxa, a Gram-positive bacterium, by disrupting its cell membrane. Membrane damage was clearly revealed by detecting the leakage of intracellular molecules. The observation using scanning electron microscopy also supported that polymyxin E can destroy the cell membrane and cause an extensive cell surface alteration. On the other hand, divalent cations can give protection against polymyxin E. Compared with Mg2+, Ca2+ can more effectively alleviate polymyxin E-induced damage to the cell membrane, thus remarkably increasing the P. polymyxa survival. Our findings would shed light on a not yet described bactericidal mechanism of polymyxin E against Gram-positive bacteria and more importantly the nature of limited fermentation output of polymyxin E from P. polymyxa.
Renal toxicity is the most common adverse effect of colistin treatment because the drug is excreted primarily by the kidneys and elevated blood levels may further impair renal function. Little information is available on the mechanism of toxicity but in vitro electrophysiological studies demonstrate that, at long exposure times, colistin is directly toxic to mammalian urothelium by increasing transepithelial conduction [28].. A disparity between old and recent studies exists in the reported rates of nephrotoxicity associated with intravenous administration of colistin [29]. The recent studies generally indicate a relatively lower incidence of renal toxicity. This can be explained by the use of more purified colistin, the use of colistimethate instead of colistin sulphate, more adequate dose adjustment according to renal function and significant improvement of ICU monitoring (in particular of the patients hydration status) and treatment (more rapid and adequate resuscitation of severe sepsis and ...
Colistin has been used on humans since the 1960s, but its use decreased rapidly once new, safer options became available. Now that more drug-resistant strains of bacteria are appearing, medical professionals have had to bring colistin back from retirement. It is currently used to treat general infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria such as E. coli in hospital patients, if safer antibiotics have proven ineffective. Colistin is most commonly used on humans in countries which have the most severe problems with antibiotic resistance. In veterinary medicine, colistin has been used since the 1950s. Its most common application is for the treatment of E. coli infections in the digestive tracts of pigs and fowl. For practical reasons, drugs are typically administered to productions animals in large groups, which means that the amounts are large. Most of the worlds colistin is used in veterinary medicine. Colistin has been in veterinary use in Europe for decades without significant problems with ...
This study compared the effect of monotherapy of colistin, tigecycline, and their combination in sepsis model of mice. OXA-48 producing Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) strain was used in Balb/c mice. The mice were divided into competent and Methylprednisolone acetate (MPA)-treated groups. Each group was sub-divided into (1) colistin or (2) tigecycline monotherapy and (3) colistin/tigecycline combination therapy. After 3 hours of intraperitoneal bacterial inoculation, antimicrobials were administered, and mice were sacrificed at 24 and 48 hours Time-kill curve study demonstrated that colistin sulphate had early bactericidal activity following re-growth. In competent and MPA-treated groups of mice at 24 hours, bacterial counts in liver samples significantly lowered compared to control, however, there were no statistically differences between monotherapy and combination therapy subgroup. Bacterial count in lung samples of competent group was significantly lesser than control for ...
Antibiotic treatment failure might be due to bacterial resistance or suboptimal exposure at target site and there is a lack of knowledge on the interaction between antimicrobial pharmacodynamics (PD) and the immune response to bacterial infections. Therefore, it is crucial to develop tools to increase the understanding of drug disposition to better evaluate antibiotic candidates in drug development and to elucidate the role of the immune system in bacterial infections.. Colistin is used as salvage therapy against multidrug resistant Gram-negative infections. In this work, a whole-body physiologically based pharmacokinetic model (WBPBPK) was developed to characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of colistin and its prodrug colistin methanesulfonate (CMS) in animal and human. The scalability of the model from animal to human was assessed with satisfactory predictive performance for CMS and demonstrating the need for a mechanistic understanding of colistin elimination.. The WBPBPK model was applied to ...

Plasmid-mediated resistance to the last-resort drugs: carbapenems and colistin is an emerging public health threat. The studies on the prevalence and co-expression of resistant genes among livestock and human pathogens are rare in Nepal. This is the first study in Nepal exploring the prevalence and co-existence of colistin resistance gene, mcr-1 along with carbapenemase resistance gene, OXA-48 in Escherichia coli isolated from poultry and clinical specimens. A total of 240 rectal swabs from chickens of five different poultry farms of Kathmandu valley and 705 mid-stream urine samples from human subjects attending Kantipur Hospital, Kathmandu were collected between August, 2018 and March, 2019. Rectal swabs and urine specimens were cultured. E. coli isolated from the specimens were screened for antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) using disk diffusion method. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of colistin was determined by agar dilution method using 0.5 µg/ml to 32 µg/ml. The E. coli isolates
Infection with colistin-resistant organisms is associated with a substantially increased risk for mortality, and options for treatment are limited (9-11, 17-20). Prior studies have typically been relatively small or limited in scope, either following a relatively small number of patients (9, 10, 17, 18, 24, 26, 30-33) or focusing on a single organism (16, 21, 22, 27), and none have resulted in a clinically meaningful prediction tool. Our score can be calculated by providers at the time of decision making without the help of a computer. This potentially more accurately reflects a patients risk for Colr organisms than a hospital-wide or unit-specific antibiogram, which can provide only a flat percent expected susceptibility for a given organism and is not useful for the management of rare events. Additionally, most hospital labs do not routinely test for colistin susceptibility, and it is rarely in a hospitals antibiogram. All information used in the models was from standardized data fields that ...

Evidence supporting potential collateral sensitivity in clinical P. aeruginosa isolates remains equivocal. However, cross-resistance within antibiotic classes is common. Colistin therapy is promising since resistance to it was rare despite its intensive use in the studied patients.Our study focused on 45 isolates from 13 patients under documented treatment with antibiotics. Forty percent of these were clinically resistant and 15% multi-drug resistant. Colistin resistance was found once, despite continuous colistin treatment and even though colistin resistance can readily evolve experimentally in the laboratory. Patients typically harbored multiple genetically and phenotypically distinct clones. However, genetically similar clones often had dissimilar resistance profiles. Isolates showed mutations in genes encoding cell wall synthesis, alginate production, efflux pumps and antibiotic modifying enzymes. Cross-resistance was commonly observed within antibiotic classes and between aminoglycosides ...

Purpose. A recently identified colistin resistance gene, mcr-1, has been reported in many countries. In this study, we established a new real-time PCR method to detect it. Methodology. We used a real-time PCR method to detect the mcr-1 gene in a variety of isolates and faecal samples from 20 provinces and municipal cities in China. Results. Of the 2330 isolates (from 10 species) screened, 54 (2.3 %) isolates were positive for mcr-1. All of the mcr-1-positive isolates that were identified belonged to Escherichia coli strains, among which 9, 1, and 44 were identified as enteropathogenic E. coli, enteroadherent E. coli, and non-pathogenic E. coli, respectively. The majority of the mcr-1-positive isolates were obtained from farm animals from eight provinces and municipal cities across China. A total of 337 faecal samples, including 229 human and 108 pet animal faecal samples, were also screened for the mcr-1 gene. Of the 337 samples analyzed, six and eight human and pet animal faecal samples were positive

Colistin: Cyclic polypeptide antibiotic from Bacillus colistinus. It is composed of Polymyxins E1 and E2 (or Colistins A, B, and C) which act as detergents on cell membranes. Colistin is less toxic than Polymyxin B, but otherwise similar; the methanesulfonate is used orally.
Current excessive use and abuse of antibiotics has resulted in increasing bacterial resistance to common treatment options which is threatening to deprive us of a pillar of modern medicine. In this work methods to optimize the use of existing antibiotics and to help development of new antibiotics were developed and applied.. Semi-mechanistic pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PKPD) models were developed to describe the time course of the dynamic effect and interaction of combinations of antibiotics. The models were applied to illustrate that colistin combined with a high dose of meropenem may overcome meropenem-resistant P. aeruginosa infections.. The results from an in vivo dose finding study of meropenem was successfully predicted by the meropenem PKPD model in combination with a murine PK model, which supports model based dosage selection. However, the traditional PK/PD index based dose selection was predicted to have poor extrapolation properties from pre-clinical to clinical settings, and ...

Colistimethate Sodium is a derivative of Colistin which, is a mixture of polypeptide antibiotics active against Gram-negative bacteria.
Background: The aim of this work was to characterize three colistin resistant bacteria isolated from pigs on a farm in Great Britain. Methods: Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed by a broth microdilution method. Whole genome sequencing was used to detect antimicrobial resistance (AMR .. [more]) and virulence genes. The mcr-1 harbouring plasmid was characterised and conjugations performed. Selected transconjugants were plasmid-profiled and their susceptibility to different antibiotics tested. Findings: Two Escherichia coli and 1 Salmonella Typhimurium var. Copenhagen with phenotypic colistin resistance were shown to be multidrug resistant (MDR), with 1 E. coli (E4) and Salmonella (S3) carrying the mcr-1 gene; all 3 isolates also harboured chromosomal mutations for colistin resistance. The pS3 mcr-1 plasmid was highly similar to pHNSHP45, reported in China, but the pE4 mcr-1 plasmid was distinct with only the ISApII and mcr-1 genes in common. This indicated both plasmid and ...
Colistin is a veterinary drug use in swine production to treat post-weaning diarrhea cause by E. coli in piglet. During my graduate study, I studied the bacterial resistance to colistin in E.coli. Using molecular biology technique at the cutting edge of technology, such as gene sequencing, I was able to study mechanism of resistance, the acquisition of this resistance and also I was able to create in vitro bacteria with resistance to colistin. Comparing resistant and sensitive bacteria to this antibiotic, I was able to identify specific mutation in specific DNA gene leading to colistin resistance and contributed to better understand this resistance. The antibiotic resistance is a phenomenon that increases and becoming major issues in veterinary and human medicine. This preoccupation requires special attention from all health professional ...

FOX NEWS - A long-dreaded superbug that is a strain of E. Coli has made its first appearance in the United States, researchers at the U.S. Military HIV Research Program announced Thursday. After being identified in China, Europe and Canada, researchers identified mcr-1 positive- part of the deadly family of bacteria carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE- last month in a urinary tract sample in Pennsylvania, and found it was resistant to the antibiotic colistin.. Colistin, known as the last line of defense against the most antibiotic-resistant bacteria, now appears to be exchanging genes for its resistance and waning in strength, according to a news release.. Colistin is one of the last efficacious antibiotics for the treatment of highly resistant bacteria. The emergence of a transferable gene that confers resistance to this vital antibiotic is extremely disturbing, Dr. Patrick McGann, of the Multidrug Resistant Organism Repository and Surveillance Network (MRSN) at the Walter Reed ...
The world is in a desperate search for new antibiotics to thwart the threat of AMR. But the results are not coming soon. We have to wait for some more time before new antibiotics are available at commercial scale. Till that time, measures such as this (banning) will help reduce the development of antimicrobial resistant bacteria. AMR is threatening the world health security that humanity has built painstakingly over the centuries. Definite measures such as this have to be taken for the common good of the people across the world. By banning the drug in animal feed, India has shown to the world how to tackle a public health issue of major concern.

A 49-year-old woman who came to a clinic in Pennsylvania with urinary tract infection symptoms is the first American found to have a new and frightening antibiotic-resistant bacteria, Army researchers reported Thursday.. While her particular kind of bacteria, a strain of E. coli, is treatable with some antibiotics, it is resistant to the antibiotic colistin, a drug sometimes used as a last resort for difficult-to-treat infections. What makes this superbug scarier is its potential to spread colistin resistance to other types of bacteria that are already highly resistant to multiple drugs, infectious disease experts said.. It basically shows us that the end of the road isnt very far away for antibiotics - that we may be in a situation where we have patients in our intensive-care units, or patients getting urinary tract infections, for which we do not have antibiotics, CDC Director Tom Frieden told The Washington Post, which first reported the case Thursday.. Its another warning, not a death ...
MCR-1 is a lipid A modifying enzyme that confers resistance to the antibiotic colistin. Here, we analyse the impact of MCR-1 expression on E. coli morphology, fitness, competitiveness, immune stimulation and virulence. Increased expression of mcr-1 results in decreased growth rate, cell viability, competitive ability and significant degradation in cell membrane and cytoplasmic structures, compared to expression of catalytically inactive MCR-1 (E246A) or MCR-1 soluble component. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) extracted from mcr-1 strains induces lower production of IL-6 and TNF, when compared to control LPS. Compared to their parent strains, high-level colistin resistance mutants (HLCRMs) show reduced fitness (relative fitness is 0.41-0.78) and highly attenuated virulence in a Galleria mellonella infection model. Furthermore, HLCRMs are more susceptible to most antibiotics than their respective parent strains. Our results show that the bacterium is challenged to find a delicate equilibrium between ...

Pranita Tamma, MD, MHS, from The Johns Hopkins Medical Institution, Baltimore, MD, reported that colistin use in children has been associated primarily with nephrotoxicity and to a lesser extent neurotoxicity, at IDWeek 2012.
Last year, researchers identified a gene that confers resistance to last-resort antibiotic colistin. They found it in several E. coli isolates in China, and
What that means is that weve had to actually reach back into the archives, if you will. Weve had to dust off the shelves [and revisit] some older antibiotics that we havent used in many, many years. We stopped using them because they were very toxic, and as new antibiotics came about that werent so toxic, we of course stopped using these older antibiotics.. Like colistin?. Colistin is a great example. And now were back. Were using a lot of colistin, and were using more of it every year. Its very toxic. We dont like to use it. It damages the kidneys. But were forced to use it in a lot of instances.. But whats really worrisome is that now were seeing bacteria that are resistant even to colistin, so there are infections for which we have really nothing to offer a patient. Were in a situation where the patient will get better or the patient wont get better based on whatever the defenses the patient might have, but we have nothing to offer them to help them get better. ...
MedicalResearch.com Interview with: Amanda Paschke, MD, MSCE Senior principal scientist Infectious disease clinical research Merck Research Laboratories MedicalResearch.com: What is the background for this study? What are the main findings? Response: This study sought to evaluate a new beta-lactam/beta-lactamase inhibitor antibacterial combination, imipenem/relebactam (IMI/REL), compared with colistin plus imipenem for the treatment of infections caused by resistant Gram-negative bacteria. Patients enrolled in the trial had hospital-acquired or ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (HABP/VABP), complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI), or complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI) caused by pathogens that were non susceptible to imipenem, a carbapenem antibacterial. In this study, the primary outcome was a favorable overall response to treatment, which was comparable between the IMI/REL vs colistin + IMI arms. Colistin (often combined with a carbapenem) is currently among the standard ...
Multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii infection has presented a global medical challenge. The antibiograms of paired colistin-susceptible and -resistant strains revealed increased susceptibility of colistin-resistant strains to most tested antibiotics, including those that are active against only gram-positive bacteria. Synergy between colistin and rifampicin was observed in the colistin-susceptible strains. The ability to form biofilm in the colistin-resistant strains was significantly lower (P , .001) than in the parent strains. Our study provides valuable information for potential expansion of our current therapeutic options against colistin-resistant A. baumannii infection.. ...
BACKGROUND : Non-typhoidal salmonellae (NTS) have been associated with invasive disease, notably meningitis, in immunocompromised individuals. Infections of this nature carry high rates of morbidity and mortality. Colistin resistance in salmonellae is a rare finding, more so in an invasive isolate such as cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Colistin resistance has important infection control implications and failure to manage this phenomenon may lead to the loss of our last line of defence against multi-drug resistant Gram-negative organisms. To our knowledge, this is the first reported clinical case of colistin-resistant Salmonella Enteritidis meningitis in South Africa. CASE PRESENTATION : We report a case of a young male patient with advanced human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection who presented to hospital with symptoms of meningitis. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cultured a Salmonella Enteritidis strain. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) of the isolate, revealed the strain to be colistin ...
External validation of the INCREMENT-CPE risk score (ICS) for 30-day all-cause mortality is needed. There is also scarce information about whether colistin resistance influences the prognosis of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKp) bacteraemia. In this study, the ability of ICS to predict all-cause mortality in the KAPECOR cohort was calculated using the area under the receiver operating characteristic (AUROC) curve. The association of colistin resistance with mortality was studied. The ICS showed an AUROC curve of 0.77 (95% CI 0.68-0.86). A cut-off of 8 points showed 96.8% sensitivity and 50.7% specificity. Mortality of low-risk patients was not different in those treated with monotherapy versus combination therapy. However, mortality of high-risk patients treated with combination therapy (37.8%) was significantly lower than in those treated with monotherapy (68.4%) (P = 0.008). To study the prognostic significance of colistin resistance, 83 selected cases of bacteraemia due to ...

All consecutive patients admitted to the ICU from October 2011 to February 2015, expected to require tracheal intubation for longer than 48 hours were given SDD with a 4-day course of intravenous cefotaxime, plus enteral colistin, tobramycin, nystatin in an oropharyngeal paste and in a digestive solution. Oropharyngeal and rectal swabs were obtained on admission and once weekly. Patients with rectal swabs colonized by colistin and / or carbepemenase resistant microorganisms were treated with enteral paromomycin 1 gr every 6 hours daily, in order to negativize it and eventually preventing nosocomial infections. Categorical variables were summarized as frequencies and percentages and the continuous ones as medians and interquartile ranges (IQR) or means and standard deviations. Statistical significance was set at p ≤ 0.05. ...
Klebsiella pneumoniae is an opportunistic pathogen which is often difficult to treat due to its multidrug resistance (MDR). We have previously shown that K. pneumoniae strains are able to adapt to (become more resistant) to the widely used bisbiguanide antiseptic chlorhexidine. Here we investigated the mechanisms responsible and the phenotypic consequences for chlorhexidine adaptation with particular reference to antibiotic cross-resistance. In five of six strains adaptation to chlorhexidine also led to resistance to the last resort antibiotic colistin. Here we show that chlorhexidine adaptation is associated with mutations in the two component regulator phoPQ and a putative tet-repressor gene (smvR), adjacent to the MFS family efflux pump smvA. Up-regulation of smvA (10-27 fold) was confirmed in smvR mutant strains and this effect and the associated phenotype was suppressed when a wild type copy of smvR was introduced on plasmid pACYC. Up-regulation of phoPQ (5-15 fold) and phoPQ-regulated ...
Objectives A suspension for oral use which consists of three non-absorbable antibiotics (amphotericin B, colistin and tobramycin) is often used in clinical practice for the selective decontamination of the digestive tract (SDD) of patients in intensive care. Such a therapy is a preventive tool to minimise the risk of pneumonia and bacteraemia in intubated patients. The administration and the treatment results are controversially discussed. One limiting factor for a unique SDD treatment in the hospitals is a lack of adequate data regarding batch formula and stability for such a formulation. Since no detailed procedures, specifications or stability data are available for manufacturing this formulation there may be discrepancies regarding formulation and stability of suspensions prepared in different pharmacies. The aim of this research was to collect the physicochemical and microbiological stability data of a developed, stable standard formulation under defined storage conditions. The ...

loading dose.4 Colistin was not administered as monotherapy in any nosocomial infection, but was used in combination with a second agent such as rifampicin, imipenem, or sulbactam for 14 to 21 days. Colistin therapy was not administered empirically in any case but was started on the basis of culture antibiogram results or added to the antibiotic the patient was already taking.. The patients receiving treatment were monitored daily, both clinically and through laboratory values to look for colistin-related side-effects, particularly nephrotoxicity. Patients fluid monitoring, serum urea, creatinine values and clearance (in cases of suspected renal toxicity) were monitored daily. The severity of renal injury in these cases was defined according to RIFLE (risk, injury, failure, loss of kidney function, and end-stage kidney disease) criteria. Accordingly, a rise in creatinine , 1.5 times above the normal range was defined as risk of renal failure, a rise , 2-fold was defined as renal injury, a , ...
Since mcr-1 producing bacteria were first identified in the United States in a Pennsylvania patient in May 2016, the mcr-1 gene has been isolated from persons in five additional states and from animals in two states. Public Health investigations determined that the Los Angeles County isolate was most likely acquired by the affected individual during international travel and that that there is no evidence that the organism has spread within the local healthcare community.. Colistin is one of a few antibiotics that are considered as a last resort to treat bacteria that are highly resistant to multiple antibiotics. The mcr-1 gene is of public health concern because it is carried on a piece of DNA that can be transmitted between bacteria and lead to the spread of colistin resistance.. In order to better respond to emerging public health threats, such as mcr-1 positive bacteria, Public Health has been tracking antimicrobial resistance across Los Angeles County. Previously collected information has ...

EIN members recently discussed a complex case of multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, highlighting the need for new antimicrobials to treat serious resistant infections.. Im currently taking care of a 23-year-old white female who was originally admitted to an outside hospital with complaints of fever, cough, and hemoptysis, an EIN member in Michigan wrote. A CT scan in the emergency room revealed bilateral pulmonary infiltrates, and the woman required intubation shortly after admission. She was empirically started on piperacillin/tazobactam and linezolid.. Initial bronchial cultures were all negative. The next day, the patients blood cultures became positive for Neisseria meningitidis, and her antimicrobials were changed to ceftriaxone. HIV testing was negative. Several days later, the patients condition worsened. Another bronchoscopy was performed, with cultures growing Pseudomonas aeruginosa susceptible to colistin only. She was then transitioned to IV colistin and continued on ...
The proliferation of drug-resistant pathogens over the past few decades has created an urgent need for new antibiotics. The ESKAPE pathogen family is particularly concerning, as its members are increasingly displaying resistance to carbapenem class antibiotics. Treatment options for carbapenem-resistant infections are limited to drugs of last resort such as tigecycline and colistin. Unfortunately, both drugs have significant drawbacks: The prevalence of tigecycline resistance continues to increase (14), while colistin displays nephrotoxic effects after prolonged treatment (16-18).. In this study, we used a maximum common subgraph computational approach to design AMPs (Fig. 1). α-Helical AMP structures extracted from the APD (49) were reduced to graphical representations. Residues were reduced to nodes, while intra-residue covalent and backbone hydrogen bonds were reduced to connecting edges. We then attempted to design new AMPs by maximizing the number of subgraphs shared between a given design ...
Purpose : Previous our studies showed that the commercially available ophthalmic product, as fixed antibiotic combination (Colbiocin®), containing tetracycline, chloramphenicol and colistimethate sodium, had a good efficacy against Candida spp., including resistant strains (Marino et al., ARVO 2016). The aim of this work was to study the mode-of-action of this antibacterial product against yeasts. Methods : C. albicans ATCC and clinical isolated treated with sub-MIC concentrations of Colbiocin eye drop or with antibiotics of the formulation, alone and in combination each other, were examined by propidium iodide staning and MitoTracker red staining to determine cell permeability and mitochondrial function, respectively. Observations under the fluorescence microscope were performed. Results : Microscopic examination using propidium staining demonstrated that the C. albicans cells treated with colistimethate sodium were stained red because they lost in cell membrane integrity. Propidium iodide, a ...
Rawa Abdul Redha Aziz* and Sawsan Sajid Al-Jubori. ABSTRACT. Twenty four isolates primarily diagnosed as Klebsiella pneumoniae were isolated from different samples from patients submitted to Baghdad hospitals\Iraq. Bacterial diagnosis was performed using complementary Vitek system. A house keeping gene(primers were designed for the 16s and 23s rRNA region) was used for genotypic diagnosis with amplified size 639bp.The results of antimicrobial susceptibility testing (disc diffusion method) revealed that most isolates displayed extremely high drug resistance (XDR) patterns. The highest resistance percentage was towards Ampicillin (95.83%) followed by Ceftazidime (87.50%) compared with other used antibiotic groups. Results also reveal that 16\24 (66.67%) isolates were resistant to Colistin sulphate, while only 2\24 (8.33%) isolates were resistant to Tigecycline. The MIC test for polymyxin B revealed that 22/24 (91.67%) isolates were resistant to ˃32μg/ml of this antibiotics. The results of ...
Monotherapy was the empirical therapy most frequently used (267, 67.8 %), mainly consisting of piperacillin/tazobactam (49.4 %) and carbapenems (37.1 %). On the other hand, combined treatment was used in 127 (32.2 %) cases, with carbapenems plus colistin being the most common combination. The EAT was adequate in 75.4 % of the cases. Seven- and 30-day mortality was 17 % and 23.9 %, respectively, related to infection in more than 80 % of the cases. Marked differences were observed in treatment and outcomes between the two groups. Carbapenems (35.4 versus 61.9 %, p=0.0001) and colistin (11.9 versus 31.5 %, p=0.0001) were more frequently used in the MDR GNR group, with worse outcomes in this group regarding breakthrough bacteremia (4 versus 14.3 %, p=0.0001), clinical response (75.2 versus 54.2 %, p=0.0001), and 30-day mortality (15.9 versus 34.5 %, p=0.0001).. Discussion. This prospective multicenter study of bacteremia in both cancer and HSCT patients was carried out in Argentina to help ...
The infection was occurred in a 49 year-old woman from Pennsylvania who developed a urinary tract infection (UTI) with a mutant form of E. coli.. Experts say the superbug itself was infected with a tiny piece of DNA called a plasmid. It passed along the mcr-1 gene, which is resistant to colistin, the last-resort antibiotic for nightmare bacteria.. In November 2015, the mcr-1 gene was found in pigs, raw pork meat, and a few people in China. It was later discovered in Europe, Africa, South America, and Canada.. This is the first known case in the United States. The woman had not travelled in the five months before her infection. The mcr-1 gene was also found in a sample of pig intestine by the USDA.. The good news is that she was cured by antibiotics in the carbapenem class. However, she was resistant to fluoroquinolones, ampicillin, streptomycin, sulfisoxazole, and tetracycline.. The fear is that the gene will jump to CRE bacteria that are only destroyed by colistin, creating a potentially ...
Polyphor AG (SIX: POLN) presented new data on its lead clinical antibacterial candidate, murepavadin, currently in Phase III, and its preclinical medium-spectrum anti Gram-negative antibiotic POL7306 at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) in Amsterdam, Netherlands.. The results from an in-vitro study, which investigated the activity of murepavadin and standard of care antibiotics* against a collection of 495 Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) recent clinical isolates, including 179 strains resistant to colistin, demonstrated that murepavadin was more potent than the comparator anti-Pseudomonas antibiotics tested and showed potent activity against colistin-resistant clinical isolates of PA. Murepavadin is the most advanced Outer Membrane Protein Targeting Antibiotic (OMPTA) and is currently in Phase III clinical trials.. Polyphor also presented data from different studies on its new medium-spectrum antibiotic POL7306 from its OMPTA class with a novel mechanism ...
China is about to make a major change to how it uses a last-resort antibiotic called colistin.

We describe three cases of bloodstream infection caused by colistin-resistant Escherichia coli in patients in a tertiary hospital in Italy, between August 2016 and January 2017. Whole genome sequencing detected the mcr-1 gene in three isolated strains belonging to different sequence types (STs). This occurrence of three cases with mcr-1-positive E. coli belonging to different STs in six months suggests a widespread problem in settings where high multidrug resistance is endemic such as in Italy.
