Comparison of cyclacillin and amoxicillin for therapy for acute maxillary sinusitis. (1/8)

Cyclacillin, a new aminosalicylic semisynthetic penicillin, was compared with amoxicillin for the therapy of acute bacterial maxillary sinusitis in 80 patients (ages, 12 to 70 years) in a prospective, double-blind, randomized clinical trial. Direct sinus aspirations for quantitative culture were done for all patients before and after 10 days of therapy. Both drugs were administered at a dosage of 500 mg orally three times daily. Among culture-positive patients, clinical cure was achieved in 23 of 26 patients and 25 of 27 patients treated with cyclacillin and amoxicillin, respectively, for an overall cure rate of 91%. Bacteriologic failure occurred in 9% (4 of 44 patients); 3 of the 4 failures were in the cyclacillin group. There was no correlation between clinical or bacteriologic cure and the results of sinus transillumination (clear, dark) at follow-up. Initial direct sinus aspirates were positive in 57 of 80 cases (70%): 25 (44%) of these were the result of Streptococcus pneumoniae and 23 (40%) were the result of Haemophilus influenzae. All of these isolates were susceptible (MIC, less than or equal to 0.5 microgram/ml) to both study drugs; no ampicillin-resistant H. influenzae was recovered. On day 10 of therapy, mean concentrations of both drugs in serum were 2.5 to 2.7 micrograms/ml, but no antibiotic was detectable in 20 of 21 simultaneous sinus aspirates. Adverse effects (rash, diarrhea) were infrequent and similar in both groups. Cyclacillin appears equivalent to amoxicillin in the therapy of acute maxillary sinusitis.  (+info)

Double-blind clinical trials of oral cyclacillin and ampicillin. (2/8)

A double-blind study was performed to compare the clinical response and the incidence of side effects in 2,581 patients administered ampicillin or cyclacillin for infections of the genitourinary or respiratory tract, infections of the skin and soft tissues, or for otitis media. There was no significant difference in clinical response and bacterial eradication. All side effects, including diarrhea and skin rash, were approximately twice as frequent in patients treated with ampicillin.  (+info)

Susceptibility of anaerobic bacteria to beta-lactam antibiotics and beta-lactamase production. (3/8)

We examined the susceptibility of various anaerobes to four beta-lactamase susceptible (ampicillin, amoxycillin, cyclacillin, and penicillin G) and two beta-lactamase resistant (moxalactam, and N-F-thienamycin) beta-lactam antibiotics and measured beta-lactamase production. Members of the Bacteroides groups were most resistant to the six antibiotics. N-F-thienamycin was the most effective antimicrobial agent against all the test strains, moxalactam the next most effective, and penicillin G the least. Beta-lactamase production was mainly confined to Bacteroides species. Cephalosporinase was the most common beta-lactamase produced; penicillinase was detected less often. About two thirds of the penicillin-resistant isolates produced cephalosporinase. N-F-thienamycin and moxalactam were the most active agents against those anaerobes that were resistant to many beta-lactam antibiotics.  (+info)

Pharmacological and in vitro evaluation of cyclacillin: assessment as potential single-dose therapy for treatment of Neisseria gonorrhoeae infection. (4/8)

The pharmacokinetic properties of cyclacillin administered as a 3.0-g oral dose, with and without progenecid, have been studied and correlated with in vitro activity of the drug against 109 isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae. By 8 h after dosage, levels of cyclacillin in serum declined below the minimal inhibitory concentration and the inferior antibacterial activity of cyclacillin (compared with that of amipicillin) suggest that cyclacillin is not a promising alternative to ampicillin for single-dose treatment of gonorrhea.  (+info)

Comparative pharmacokinetics of cyclacillin and amoxicillin in infants and children. (5/8)

Concentrations of cyclacillin in serum over a 6-h period were similar in fasted and milk-fed infants who received 25-mg/kg doses of cyclacillin suspension. Measured by the concentration in serum after oral administration of 15-mg/kg doses, cyclacillin was absorbed more rapidly, reached larger concentrations, and was cleared more promptly than was amoxicillin.  (+info)

Differential recognition of beta -lactam antibiotics by intestinal and renal peptide transporters, PEPT 1 and PEPT 2. (6/8)

This study was initiated to determine if there are differences in the recognition of beta -lactam antibiotics as substrates between intestinal and renal peptide transporters, PEPT 1 and PEPT 2. Reverse transcription-coupled polymerase chain reaction and/or Northern blot analysis have established that the human intestinal cell line Caco-2 expresses PEPT 1 but not PEPT 2, whereas the rat proximal tubule cell line SKPT expresses PEPT 2 but not PEPT 1. Detailed kinetic analysis has provided unequivocal evidence for participation of PEPT 2 in SKPT cells in the transport of the dipeptide glycylsarcosine and the aminocephalosporin cephalexin. The substrate recognition pattern of PEPT 1 and PEPT 2 was studied with cefadroxil (a cephalosporin) and cyclacillin (a penicillin) as model substrates for the peptide transporters constitutively expressed in Caco-2 cells (PEPT 1) and SKPT cells (PEPT 2). Cyclacillin was 9-fold more potent than cefadroxil in competing with glycylsacosine for uptake via PEPT 1. In contrast, cefadroxil was 13-fold more potent than cyclacillin in competing with the dipeptide for uptake via PEPT 2. The substrate recognition pattern of PEPT 1 and PEPT 2 was also investigated using cloned human peptide transporters functionally expressed in HeLa cells. Expression of PEPT 1 or PEPT 2 in HeLa cells was found to induce H(+)-coupled cephalexin uptake in these cells. As was the case with Caco-2 cells and SKPT cells, the uptake of glycylsarcosine induced in HeLa cells by PEPT 1 cDNA and PEPT 2 cDNA was inhibitable by cyclacillin and cefadroxil. Again, the PEPT 1 cDNA-induced dipeptide uptake was inhibited more potently by cyclacillin than by cefadroxil, and the PEPT 2 cDNA-induced dipeptide uptake was inhibited more potently by cefadroxil than by cyclacillin. It is concluded that there are marked differences between the intestinal and renal peptide transporters in the recognition of beta -lactam antibiotics as substrates.  (+info)

Absorption of amino penicillins from everted rat intestine. (7/8)

1. Using an in vitro everted gut sac method based on that of Wilson & Wiseman (1954), a number of amino penicillins were tested in order to identify the involvement of any specialized transport mechanisms in their absorption across rat intestine. 2. Only one of the amino penicillins, cyclacillin (1-amino-cyclohexyl penicillin) was shown to be actively transported. The other penicillins appeared to diffuse passively across the intestine. 3. Cyclacillin was found to concentrate against a gradient at 37 degrees C but not at 19 degrees C. 4. Transport of cyclacillin across the mucosal membrane was saturated at mucosal concentrations greater than 1000 microgram/ml. 5. The rate of the forward flux of cyclacillin was many times that of its back flux. 6. No relationship between the active transport of cyclacillin and that of amino acids could be demonstrated.  (+info)

Recognition of beta-lactam antibiotics by rat peptide transporters, PEPT1 and PEPT2, in LLC-PK1 cells. (8/8)

PEPT1 and PEPT2 are H(+)-coupled peptide transporters expressed preferentially in the intestine and kidney, respectively, which mediate uphill transport of oligopeptides and peptide-like drugs such as beta-lactam antibiotics. In the present study, we have compared the recognition of beta-lactam antibiotics by LLC-PK1 cells stably transfected with PEPT1 or PEPT2 cDNA. Cyclacillin (aminopenicillin) and ceftibuten (anionic cephalosporin without an alpha-amino group) showed potent inhibitory effects on the glycylsarcosine uptake in the PEPT1-expressing cells. Other beta-lactams, such as cephalexin, cefadroxil, and cephradine (aminocephalosporins), inhibited modestly the PEPT1-mediated glycylsarcosine uptake. Except for ceftibuten, these beta-lactams showed much more potent inhibitions on the glycylsarcosine uptake via PEPT2 than via PEPT1. Comparison of the inhibition constant (Ki) values between cefadroxil and cephalexin suggested that the hydroxyl group at the NH2-terminal phenyl ring increased affinity for both PEPT1 and PEPT2. It is concluded that PEPT2 has a much higher affinity for beta-lactam antibiotics having an alpha-amino group than PEPT1 and that substituents at the NH2-terminal side chain of these drugs are involved in the recognition by both peptide transporters.  (+info)

Cephalosporins differ from other beta lactam antibiotics in both their structure and spectrum of action. Beta lactam antibiotics, in general, may cause platelet deficiency owing to their interference with normal platelet function. Cefoperazone, belonging to the group of 3rd generation cephalosporins, has been reported to cause hypoprothrombinemia and hence, bleeding manifestations. However, it is not known to alter platelet function and count at the routinely used therapeutic doses. This case report highlights a rare case of cefoperazone-induced thrombocytopenia..

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.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Characterization of the Oral Absorption of β-Lactam Antibiotics. I. Cephalosporins. T2 - Determination of Intrinsic Membrane Absorption Parameters in the Rat Intestine In Situ. AU - Sinko, Patrick J.. PY - 1988/10. Y1 - 1988/10. N2 - The oral absorption of five cephalosporin antibiotics, cefaclor, cefadroxil, cefatrizine, cephalexin, and cephradine, has been studied using a single-pass intestinal perfusion technique in rats. Intrinsic membrane absorption parameters, "unbiased" by the presence of an aqueous permeability (diffusion or stagnant layer), have been calculated utilizing a boundary layer mathematical model. The resultant intrinsic membrane absorption parameters are consistent with a significant carrier-mediated, Michaelis-Menten-type kinetic mechanism and a small passive component in the jejunum. Cefaclor colon permeability is low and does not exhibit concentration dependent behavior. The measured carrier parameters (±SD) for the jejunal perfusions are as follows: ...
An increase in the copper pool in body fluids has been related to a number of pathological conditions, including infections. Copper ions may affect antibiotics via the formation of coordination bonds and/or redox reactions. Herein, we analyzed the interactions of Cu2+ with eight β-lactam antibiotics using UV-Vis spectrophotometry, EPR spectroscopy, and electrochemical methods. Penicillin G did not show any detectable interactions with Cu2+. Ampicillin, amoxicillin and cephalexin formed stable colored complexes with octahedral coordination environment of Cu2+ with tetragonal distortion, and primary amine group as the site of coordinate bond formation. These β-lactams increased the solubility of Cu2+ in the phosphate buffer. Ceftazidime and Cu2+ formed a complex with a similar geometry and gave rise to an organic radical. Ceftriaxone-Cu2+ complex appears to exhibit different geometry. All complexes showed 1:1 stoichiometry. Cefaclor reduced Cu2+ to Cu1+ that further reacted with molecula...r ...
Darcie Long, a fourth-year in the Chemistry-Biology Interface Program and one of the authors of this study, explained that while most of the clinically relevant β-lactam antibiotics have two fused structures, a different class, called moncyclic antibiotics, only has one ring structure.. Although most antibiotics are bicyclic, Long says the monocyclic antibiotics are "of increasing interest because of their relative resistance to metalloproteases and β-lactamases, which are enzymes involved in conferring antibiotic resistance to some pathogenic bacteria.". Therefore, to better understand this single-ring class of antibiotics, the authors investigated the ring formation in one specific family: norcardicin.. Long and lead author Nicole Gaudelli worked together on all of the benchwork that led to the discovery of the mechanism. They found how the nonribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs) were able to create a ring structure in the norcardicin family. Intriguingly, this enzyme has been identified in ...

The rate of aminolysis of benzylpenicillin and cephaloridine by hydroxylamine, unlike other amines, shows only a first order dependence on amine concentration. The rate enhancement compared with that predicted from a Bronsted plot for other primary amines with benzylpenicillin is greater than 106. This is much more than an -effect and is compatible with rate-limiting formation of the tetrahedral intermediate due to a rapid intramolecular general acid catalysed breakdown of the intermediate. For cephaloridine, the rate enhancement is greater than 104 which demonstrates that -lactam C-N bond fission and expulsion of the leaving group at C3 are not concerted.. ...
Due to widespread resistance to penicillin, the current treatment of choice for S. aureus infections is semi-synthetic penicillin molecules. This resistance is due to the activity of the enzyme penicillinase, which cleaves the β-lactam ring of the penicillin molecule. Penicillinase-resistant β-lactam antibiotics include methicillin, oxacillin, and flucoxacillin. S. aureus strains that have acquired resistance to methicillin have an altered penicillin-binding protein (PBP2a) that has lower affinity for binding β-lactam antibiotics, thus rendering them ineffective. Strains that have acquired this resistance are referred to as methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA). The current gold standard for treatment of MRSA is vancomycin. However, vancomycin is far from ideal due to poor tissue penetration, slow bactericidal activity, and a number of side effects (Gould, 2008). Additional antibiotics utilized include teicoplanin, tegecyline, linezolid, daptomycin, and televancin. Each of those medications ...
Inhibitory effect of commercial antibiotics and bioactive compounds produced by the isolate W3 against vibrios. Most of the antibiotics used could cause inhibition of all tested strains of V. harveyi (Table 1), Hence antibiotics could be used to control V. harveyi infections that affect aquaculture in Thailand. However, some of them such as chloramphenicol, furazolidone, tetracycline and oxonilic acid are now banned for use in aquaculture as previously mentioned. In general, β-lactam antibiotics such as ampicillin are preferred for use by shrimp farmers to treat luminous vibriosis disease since these groups of antibiotics do not cause significant side effects (Teo et al. 2002). Unfortunately, all tested strains in this study were resistant to ampicillin and this result is in agreement with Teo et al. (2002) who reported that many types of β-lactam antibiotics were no longer able to prevent vibriosis. In Thailand sulphamethoxazole is normally used in hatcheries against Vibrio sp.; however, in ...
Pneumococcal disease was studied prospectively to determine the risk factors associated with resistance to penicillin and other antibiotics. One hundred twelve clinically significant pneumococcal isolates were recovered from 95 patients. Approximately one-half (49.47%) of the cases were due to penicillin-resistant strains. Multivariate analysis showed that previous use of β-lactam antibiotics (odds ratio [OR], 2.81; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.95-8.27), alcoholism (OR, 5.22; 95% CI, 1.43-19.01), and noninvasive disease (OR, 4.53; 95% CI, 1.54-13.34) were associated with penicillin resistance, whereas intravenous drug use (OR, 0.14; 95% CI, 0.03-0.74) was not. Statistical analyses of the variables associated with resistance to multiple antibiotics detected age of younger than 5 years (OR, 16.79; 95% CI, 1.60-176.34) or of 65 years or older (OR, 4.33; 95% CI, 1.42-13.21) and previous use of β-lactam antibiotics by patients with noninvasive disease (OR, 7.92; 95% CI, 1.84-34.06) as parameters ...

The assay is also useful in determining and quantifying β-lactam antibiotic resistance. The assay can be performed on an IGEN OrigenR Analyzer.
This study was designed to detect and compare ESBLs distribution among vaginal E. coli isolates from pregnant and non-pregnant women. Most of this study-included isolates were resistant to CTX and more than half of them were resistant to CAZ. All of CAZ resistant isolates were also resistant to CTX. The members of Enterobacteriaceae possess many mechanisms of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics, however, β-lactamases are the most common and clinically significant mechanism of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics among this bacterial group [7]. Four types of ESBLs were detected in this study, namely: TEM-, SHV-, CTX-M-, and OXA-type. Of this study-included isolates, 65.5% (40/61) were ESBL producers by PCR technique. In Iraq, previous researchers [17, 18] reported ESBL production by 100% of enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC) isolates from infants, most of them were suffering from watery diarrhea for more than 10 days, for that they were hospitalized. The important reason for this difference with ...
The neurotoxic potential of intravenous administered benzylpenicillin (BPC) was studied in rabbits with intact blood-CNS barriers and rabbits with experimental E. coli meningitis. At onset of epileptogenic EEG activity or seizures, serum, CSF and brain tissue were collected for assay of BPC. Based on the fact that, in tissues, BPC seems to remain extracellularly, brain concentrations of BPC were expressed as brain tissue fluid (BTF) levels, calculated as lOx the concentration in whole brain tissue. Neurotoxicity could be precipitated in all rabbits. In normal rabbits BTF levels of BPC were considerably higher than those in CSF indicating a better penetration across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). BPC penetrated better to CSF and BTF in meningitic rabbits than in normal controls, suggesting some degree of damage of the BBB concomitant with meningeal inflammation.

Background Level of resistance to -lactam antibiotics in Gram-negative bacterias can be a Volasertib substantial medical issue in the grouped community, long-term treatment, and hospital configurations [1-3]. In the normal Gram-negative bacterias that are in charge of most medical infections, -lactam level of resistance results from creation of penicillinases (mainly the -lactamases specified TEM-1 and SHV-1), cephalosporinases (e.g., extended-spectrum -lactamases, ESBL, of TEM-, SHV- and CTX-M-types), as well as the plasmid or chromosomally encoded AmpC enzymes [1]. Hence, an intense search for book therapeutic real estate agents and fast, accurate detection ...
β-lactamases (EC 3.5.2.6) [1,2] are enzymes which catalyze the hydrolysis of an amide bond in the β-lactam ring of antibiotics belonging to the penicillin/cephalosporin family. Four kinds of β-lactamase have been identified [2]. Class-B enzymes are zinc containing proteins whilst class -A, C and D enzymes are serine hydrolases. Class-B β-lactamases have been described in several Gram-negative bacterial species; they seem to share the characteristic of being able to hydrolyze carbapenem compounds which are new β-lactam antibiotics of great therapeutic potential. There are a number of conserved regions in the sequence of known class-B β-lactamases [3]. Most of them are centered on residues known [4] to be involved in binding the zinc ion essential for the enzymes catalytic activity. We designed two signature patterns for this class of enzyme. The first contains three residues involved in binding zinc ions. The second pattern contains a cysteine which is also a zinc ligand. Last update: ...
β-lactam antibiotics are widely used for the treatment of different types of infections worldwide and the resistance to these antibiotics has grown sharply, which is of great concern. Resistance to β-lactams in gram-negative bacteria is mainly due to the production of β-lactamases, which are classified according to their functional activities. The aim of this study was to verify the presence of β-lactamases encoding genes in feces, soil, and water from a Brazilian pig farm. Different β-lactamases encoding genes were found, including blaCTX-M-Gp1, blaCTX-M-Gp9, blaSHV, blaOXA-1-like, blaGES, and blaVEB ...
Antibiotic resistance to clinically employed β-lactam antibiotics currently poses a very serious threat to the clinical community. The origin of this resistance is the expression of several β-lactamas
Two classification plans for β-lactamases are in make use of. subgroups of each of the major groups are explained based on specific attributes of individual enzymes. A list of attributes is also suggested for the description of MK-5108 a new β-lactamase including the requisite microbiological properties substrate and inhibitor profiles and molecular sequence data that provide an adequate characterization for a new β-lactam-hydrolyzing enzyme. MK-5108 Hydrolysis of β-lactam antibiotics by β-lactamases is the most common mechanism of resistance for this class of antibacterial brokers in clinically important Gram-negative bacteria. Because penicillins cephalosporins and carbapenems are included in the favored treatment regimens for many infectious diseases the presence and characteristics of these enzymes play a critical role in the selection of appropriate therapy. β-Lactamase production is most frequently suspected in a Gram-negative bacterial isolate that demonstrates resistance to a ...

Artemisinin (ART) and its derivatives artesunate (AS), dihydroartemisinin (DHA) are a group of drugs containing a sesquiterpene lactone used to treat malaria. Previously, AS was shown to not have antibacterial activity but to significantly increase the antibacterial activities of β-lactam antibiotics against E. coli. Herein, molecular docking experiments showed that ART, AS and DHA could dock into AcrB very well, especially DHA and AS; both DHA and AS had the same docking pose. The affinity between AS and AcrB seemed weaker than that of DHA, while the succinate tail of AS, which was like a

TY - JOUR. T1 - Physicochemical properties of amphoteric β-lactam antibiotics. IV. First- and second-order degradations of cefaclor and cefatrizine in aqueous solution and kinetic interpretation of the intestinal absorption and degradation of the concentrated antibiotics. AU - Nakashima, E.. AU - Tsuji, A.. AU - Nakamura, M.. AU - Yamana, T.. PY - 1985. Y1 - 1985. N2 - A kinetic study on the degradations of cefaclor and cefatrizine was carried out at 35°C as a function of pH and initial drug concentration by the use of high-performance liquid chromatography. At constant pH and temperature, the degradation followed pseudo-first-order kinetics at the initial concentration of 5 mM. The shape of the rate-constant-pH profile of cefaclor resembled those for cefatrizine and other aminocephalosporins. At neutral pH, cefaclor was degraded via intramolecular nucleophilic attack of the α-amino group on the β-lactam moiety. The intramolecular reaction rate was very similar to that in the cases of ...

It will also support the Government of Sri Lankas aim to achieve self-sufficiency in the pharmaceutical industry by 2020.. ...
Enterobacteriaceae is a family of Gram negative bacilli which can cause a wide range of community acquired and nosocomial infections including infections of the urinary and gastrointestinal tracts, pneumonia, peritonitis, meningitis, sepsis and medical device associated infections (Surinder Kumar, 2012; Wang et al., 2015; Harbaik et al., 2014). These organisms easily acquire and transfer drug resistance genes through plasmids and transposons (Okoche et al., 2015). Carbapenem are beta lactam antibiotics and are the last resort for the treatment of severe infections caused by multidrug resistant Gram negative bacilli (Gupta et al., 2006; Roy et al., 2011). Reports indicate that carbapenemases producing Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) isolates seem to be increasing in number in the last few years (Nagaraj et al., 2012).
A racemic synthesis of two diastereoisomeric α-benzyloxycarbonylamino substituted trans-fused bicyclic lactams (4 and 5), was achieved from cyclopentene oxide. These lactams are useful intermediates to investigate the possibility of using a trans-lactam template as a replacement for the β-lactam ring found i
A beta-lactam (β-lactam) ring is a four-membered lactam. (A lactam is a cyclic amide.) It is named as such because the nitrogen atom is attached to the β-carbon atom relative to the carbonyl. The simplest β-lactam possible is 2-azetidinone. The β-lactam ring is part of the core structure of several antibiotic families, the principal ones being the penicillins, cephalosporins, carbapenems, and monobactams, which are, therefore, also called β-lactam antibiotics. Nearly all of these antibiotics work by inhibiting bacterial cell wall biosynthesis. This has a lethal effect on bacteria, although any given bacteria population will typically contain a subgroup that is resistant to β-lactam antibiotics. Bacterial resistance occurs as a result of the expression of one of many genes for the production of β-lactamases, a class of enzymes that break open the β-lactam ring. More than 1,800 different β-lactamase enzymes have been documented in various species of bacteria. These enzymes vary widely in ...
High affinity for PBP 2′ is crucial for the antibacterial activity of β-lactams against MRS. Unfortunately, none of the available β-lactam antibiotics sufficiently fulfils this requirement. This fact increasingly limits the therapeutic potential against staphylococcal infections of these otherwise very useful drugs.. However, the intensive search for new antistaphylococcal drugs has shown recently (1, 7, 11, 12, 14) that it is possible to achieve strong inhibition of PBP 2′ with selected β-lactam structures. Ro 63-9141 is a member of the class of pyrrolidinone-3-ylidenemethyl cephems, which show high potency against PBP 2′ of S. aureus but higher IC50s against normal, sensitive PBPs than other β-lactam antibiotics, e.g., methicillin and imipenem. This appears to be a common property of the pyrrolidinone-3-ylidenemethyl cephems, as it has been observed before for other members of this structural class (7). Ro 63-9141 shares features of cephalosporins with 7-aminothiazolylhydroxyimino ...
Antibiotic potential for people who are injured get infection are high. First aid to evade the infection use antibiotics. Antibiotics have ability to inhibit or kill bacteria that cause infection. Tetracycline is antibiotic that usually uses for first treatment because of tetracycline easy to obtain. There are six classification of carbapenem antibiotic such as imipenem, ertapenem, mesopenem, and doripenem. Doripenem is one of the classification of carbapenem that can be obtained easily. Doripenem can be used for first aid if infection is happened. Silver usually uses too for avoiding infection but it is not easily to degrade. It is necessary to find antibacterial composites that easily to find and biodegradable. The purpose of this research is to study the effect of pH, kinetic, and isotherm adsorption of doripenem into bentonite. The optimum condition of doripenem adsorption will be determined. After knowing the optimum condition, the antibacterial composite will be tested on nutrient agar. ...
Background & Aims: The production of extended-spectrum-β-lactamases (ESBLs) is the main mechanism of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics. The outbreak of isolates simultaneously possessing several resistance mechanisms to β-lactam antibiotics caused a decrease in sensitivity of the confirmatory tests for ESBL. The aim of this study was the evaluation of the β-lactamase disk test method in the detection of ESBLs in clinical isolates of multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Methods: A total of 100 multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa isolates were recovered from burn patients. The sensitivity of the isolates to different antibiotics was determined using the standard disk diffusion method. ESBL-producing isolates were detected through the combination disk test with clavulanic acid, double disk synergy test, and β-lactamase disk test. Carbapenemase-producing isolates were detected using the Modified Hodge Test (MHT). The ESBLs genes (blaTEM, blaOXA, blaPER, blaSHV, blaCTX-M and blaPSE) were
Members of the proton-coupled oligopeptide transporter (POT) family are responsible for transporting small peptides across the cell membrane. The mammalian PepT1 and PepT2 transporters play a key role in this process for dietary peptide uptake in the small intestine and peptide retention in kidney, respectively, and are capable of recognizing and transporting a diverse library (~8000 combinations) of di- and tri-peptides. Recently, PepT1 has also been shown to transport drugs with peptide-like structures, such as β-lactam antibiotics. This makes PepT1 and PepT2 attractive targets to improve drug uptake and bioavailability within the body.. My work focuses on the functional dynamics of PepTso, a bacterial homologue of PepT1. Given the high substrate promiscuity of these peptide transporters, the binding site must be incredibly accommodating and flexible in order to recognize and transport various substrates. Using solid-state NMR, electron spin resonance, and other biophysical techniques, I will ...
The present study shows that subinhibitory concentrations of various antibiotics modulate the expression of the hla gene, encoding staphylococcal alpha-toxin (Hla). The main findings are that (i) β-lactam antibiotics of different classes strongly inducehla expression; (ii) clindamycin almost completely represseshla expression; and (iii) methicillin enhances Hla production of both MSSA and MRSA.. Numerous reports have described the effects of antibiotics below the MIC on bacterial cell functions, including alterations of virulence properties (14, 15, 17, 34). In S. aureus, exposure to subinhibitory concentrations of antimicrobial agents led to an increased expression of fibronectin-binding proteins by fluoroquinolones (5), an inhibition of toxic shock syndrome toxin 1 (TSST-1) production by clindamycin (32, 38), and an induction of hemolytic activity by β-lactams (12, 18, 23,39). The last observation frequently has been ascribed to the increased production of alpha-toxin. However, S. ...
The Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC) was detected in a carbapenem-resistant respiratory isolate of Klebsiella pneumoniae in an Irish hospital. This is the first report of a KPC-producing isolate in the Republic of Ireland. The isolate was resistant to all β-lactams. Furthermore, it had reduced susceptibility to three other classes of non-β-lactam antibiotics. The isolate was not associated with travel abroad. Detection of KPC-producing bacteria has important infection control and public health implications.
In this study, we report the development of an SPR (Surface Plasmon Resonance) immunosensor for the detection of ampicillin, operating under flow conditions. SPR sensors based on both direct (with the immobilization of the antibody) and competitive (with the immobilization of the antigen) methods did not allow the detection of ampicillin. Therefore, a sandwich-based sensor was developed which showed a good linear response towards ampicillin between 10−3 and 10−1 M, a measurement time of ≤20 min and a high selectivity both towards β-lactam antibiotics and antibiotics of different classes.
The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on.. -Ulysses S. Grant. Since the discovery of antibiotics, there has been a conflict between antibiotics and bacterial mutations and resistance. This has led to an arms race of sorts in which bacteria have undergone modifications that facilitate the development of resistance to progressive generations of antibiotics. Staphylococcus aureus, a bacterium frequently found in the nose and skin of patients, is now noted to be one of the most common causes of hospital-based infections and contamination of postsurgical wounds. Bacteria such as S aureus rapidly developed resistance to the penicillins, which led to the development of the so-called β-lactamase-resistant penicillins such as methicillin. However, with the emergence of methicillin-resistant S aureus (MRSA), bacteria have now developed resistance to all β-lactam antibiotics.. The review article by Mah ...
A membrane-bound, bacterial enzyme inhibited by penicillin and other β-lactam antibiotics, which acylate the active site serine. Examples are known from peptidase famili
Among relevant metal ions in biological systems, zinc and iron play a key role as active partners of the catalytic machinery. In particular, the inhibition of metal enzymes that are involved in physiological and pathological processes has been deeply investigated for the rational design of selective and efficient drugs based on chelators. Since imidazole histidine residue is one of the most versatile sites in proteins, especially in enzymes acting in the presence of metal ions as cofactors, in this work the synthesis and characterization of a new imidazole derivative, namely 5-methyl-2-phenoxymethyl-3-H-imidazole-4-carboxylic acid (PIMA) is reported. PIMA was designed as metallo-β-lactamase inhibitor thanks to its similarity with penicillin V, a β-lactam antibiotic inactivated by metallo-β-lactamase, for which there are no commercially available inhibitors. The evaluation of PIMA coordinating ability toward iron, zinc, and gallium, these latter selected as a non-paramagnetic probe for ...
The metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs) are enzymes with the ability to hydrolyse the β-lactam antibiotics. The worldwide emergence of the antibiotic resistant MBLs poses an increasing clinical threat. The VIM enzymes are a growing family of carbapenemases with a wide geographic distribution in Europe, South America and the USA. The VIM-7, the first VIM enzyme to be discovered in the USA, is the most divergent member of the VIM-enzymes with the closest similarity to VIM-1 with a 77% amino acid identity. The VIM-7 has a conserved D120 in the active site, which, in catalysis, plays an important role. The Y224 residue present in the VIM-2, which currently is the most widespread MBL, is though to have an impact on the activity. Three site-directed mutations of the VIM-7, with a previously solved structure, were made; D120A, D120N and H224Y respectively. All three mutants and the VIM-7 wt were sequenced, and the mutants VIM-7 D120A and VIM-7 H224Y with the VIM-7 wt, containing an N-terminal hexahis-tag and ...

The increasing prevalence of N. gonorrhoeae strains exhibiting decreased susceptibility to third-generation cephalosporins and the recent isolation of two distinct strains with high-level resistance to cefixime or ceftriaxone heralds the possible demise of β-lactam antibiotics as effective treatments for gonorrhea. To identify new compounds that inhibit penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs), which are proven targets for β-lactam antibiotics, we developed a high-throughput assay that uses fluorescence polarization (FP) to distinguish the fluorescent penicillin, Bocillin-FL, in free or PBP-bound form. This assay was used to screen a 50,000 compound library for potential inhibitors of N. gonorrhoeae PBP 2, and 32 compounds were identified that exhibited |50% inhibition of Bocillin-FL binding to PBP 2. These included a cephalosporin that provided validation of the assay. After elimination of compounds that failed to exhibit concentration-dependent inhibition, the antimicrobial activity of the remaining 24
Ochrobactrum anthropi is an oxidase-producing, non-lactose-fermenting, gram-negative bacillus that is frequently isolated from the environment including sinks, baths, soil, and hospital water sources. Recently O. anthropi have been reported as an emerging opportunistic pathogen in immunocompromised patients, particularly in those with indwelling venous catheters. Most O. anthropi were highly resistant to ? -lactam antibiotics except carbapenem. We report a case of O. anthropi bacteremia with an unusual pattern of antibiotic resistance compared to previous reports. A 47-year-old woman undergoing camptobell/cisplatin chemotherapy via indwelling venous catheter (chemoport) for stage IV ovarian cancer, had septicemia due to O. anthropi of unknown origin. The isolates were resistant to all ? -lactams and meropenem and susceptible to aminoglycoside, ciprofloxacin, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. She recovered from sepsis with combination treatment with imipenem and ciprofloxacin for 3 weeks ...

The range of antibiotics available to combat bacterial infectious diseases is diminishing due to the development of resistance to all classes of antibiotics. The emergence of Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) is one of the most significant and urgent threats to global human health. CRE strains that have acquired and expressed genes encoding for extended-spectrum β-lactamases with carbapenemase activity have now been reported across the globe. One strategy for prolonging the use of existing antibiotics has been to develop adjuvants that inhibit the function of β-lactamases and thus restore the bacterias sensitivity to the β-lactam antibiotic (e.g. clavulanic acid and tazobactam). However, for carbapenemase enzymes which are class B β-lactamases (i.e. the metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs)), such inhibition strategies have, so far, been ineffective.. Consequently, there is a market need for effective inhibitors of class B MBLs as adjuvants for carbapenems. These MBL inhibitors have the ...
en] A review with 95 refs. The assembly of the bacterial cell wall peptidoglycan relies upon the availability of a ready-made precursor, the lipid II intermediate. This intermediate is taken up by a multifunctional factory that provides the required enzymic activities for polymer assembly at the exterior of the plasma membrane. Morphogenetic networks regulate the synthesis in a cell-cycle-dependent fashion. As essential components of the cell machinery are targets of β-lactam antibiotics, safety devices protect the cells against these toxic agents. Controversy and consensus formation lie at the heart of the scientific research. This review focuses on questions that bacterial cell wall biochemists still strive, with increasing success, to answer. [on SciFinder(R ...
Bacteria are developing resistance against β-lactam antibiotics by various genetic mechanisms of which plasmid acquiring is the most deadly. Amongst others bacteria acquire resistance by degradation or modification of the antibiotic before it reaches the target site, alteration of the antibiotic site and the prevention of access of the antibiotic to the target by forced efflux..

Penicillium chrysogenum PCL501 produced β-lactam antibiotics when fermented with different agro-wastes: cassava shavings, corncob, sawdust and sugarcane pulp. In vitro antibacterial activity of the culture extracts was tested against four clinical bacterial isolates, namely, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. All the culture extracts and standard drug (commercial Benzyl Penicillin) inhibited the growth B. subtilis and E. coli; the potency varied with carbon source. Antibacterial activity of extracts from cultures containing cassava shavings and sugarcane pulp was comparable with that of the standard drug. The MIC against the susceptible organisms was 0.20mg/ml for the standard drug and ranged from 0.40 to 1.50mg/ml for the culture extracts. Neither the culture extracts nor the standard drug inhibited K. pneumoniae and P. aeruginosa; the bacterial strains produced β-lactamase enzymes. Cassava shavings and sugarcane pulp are indicated as ...
Huntingtons disease (HD) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder characterized by cortico-striatal dysfunction and loss of glutamate uptake. At 7 weeks of age, R6/2 mice, which model an aggressive form of juvenile HD, show a glutamate-uptake deficit in striatum that can be reversed by treatment with ceftriaxone, a β-lactam antibiotic that increases GLT1 expression. Only at advanced ages (| 11 weeks), however, do R6/2 mice show an actual loss of striatal GLT1. Here, we tested whether ceftriaxone can reverse the decline in GLT1 expression that occurs in older R6/2s. Western blots were used to assess GLT1 expression in both striatum and cerebral cortex in R6/2 and corresponding wild-type (WT) mice at 9 and 13 weeks of age. Mice were euthanized for immunoblotting 24 hr after five consecutive days of once daily injections (ip) of ceftriaxone (200 mg/kg) or saline vehicle. Despite a significant GLT1 reduction in saline-treated R6/2 mice relative to WT at 13, but not 9, weeks of age, ceftriaxone treatment
Inhibitors of β-lactamases are important to the treatment of infectious diseases when used in conjunction with a β-lactam antibiotic. Current inhibitors of β-lactamase such as clavulanic acid, sulbactam, and tazobactam perform efficiently overall but due to developing bacterial resistances to these inhibitors, new inhibitors need to be discovered. SELEX procedures were used to isolate ssDNA aptamers capable of binding to the enzyme active site and consequently inhibit the action of β-lactamase I from Bacillus cereus 569/H/9. A 22 base ssDNA aptamer was discovered to have an inhibition pattern consistent with reversible competitive inhibition. These results prompted further study of a hairpin loop of 10 bases and a linear 11 base ssDNA aptamer which were truncated forms of the original 22 base aptamer. The 11 base aptamer failed to show any inhibition against β-lactamase I, whereas the 10 base aptamer showed competitive reversible inhibition ...

Infectious diseases such as malaria and relapsing fever borreliosis (RF), cause severe human mortality and morbidity in developing countries. Malaria, caused by Plasmodium spp. parasites, is estimated by the World Health Organization to cause 1.5-2.7 million deaths annually. RF, caused by Borrelia spirochetes, has the highest prevalence described for any bacterial disease in Africa, with infection outcomes ranging from asymptomatic to fatal. RF borreliosis manifests in humans as a recurring fever and with other symptoms very similar to those of malaria.. RF borreliosis has been regarded as a transient infection of the blood. However, B. duttonii exploits the brain as an immunoprivileged site escaping the host immune response while spirochetes in the blood are cleared. To investigate whether residual bacteria are dormant or actively dividing, mice with residual brain infection were administered ceftriaxone, a β-lactam antibiotic interfering with cell wall synthesis. Hence, it only affects ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Enzyme deactivation due to metal-ion dissociation during turnover of the cobalt-β-lactamase catalyzed hydrolysis of β-lactams. AU - Badarau, Adriana. AU - Page, Michael I.. PY - 2006/9/12. Y1 - 2006/9/12. N2 - Metallo-β-lactamases are native zinc enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of β-lactam antibiotics but are also able to function with cobalt (II) and require one or two metal ions for catalytic activity. The kinetics of the hydrolysis of benzylpenicillin catalyzed by cobalt substituted β-lactamase from Bacillus cereus (BcII) are biphasic. The dependence of enzyme activity on pH and metal-ion concentration indicates that only the di-cobalt enzyme is catalytically active. A mono-cobalt enzyme species is formed during the catalytic cycle, which is virtually inactive and requires the association of another cobalt ion for turnover. Two intermediates with different metal to enzyme stoichiometries are formed on a branched reaction pathway. The di-cobalt enzyme intermediate is ...
Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae), otherwise known as the pneumococcus, is a fascinating microbe that continues to pose a significant problem to public health. Currently there are no specific National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) or British Thoracic Society (BTS) clinical guidelines referring to the treatment of invasive pneumococcal infection. NICE clinical guidelines suggest the use of lytic β-lactam antibiotic regimens for the management of community-acquired pneumonia and bacterial meningitis; infections for which S. pneumoniae is a likely causative organism. Lytic antibiotics have been shown to increase the release of pneumolysin (the highly inflammatory and damaging toxin of the pneumococcus), thus theoretically increasing host damage, which may lead to a decline of clinical outcomes in vulnerable patients. In light of this information, should the use of non-lytic antibiotics, such as quinolones, rifamycins and macrolides, be considered for the treatment of invasive
The most common mechanism of resistance among Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and other Enterobacteriaceae is through the production of β-lactamases, which - depending on the enzyme - inactivate certain β-lactam antibiotics [13]. The ESBLs are a heterogeneous group of enzymes that are encoded by plasmid-borne genes. ESBLs now number 532 distinct enzymes and convey varying degrees of resistance to cephalosporins, penicillins, β-lactamase inhibitors, and monobactams [1, 13]. The prevalence of ESBL-producing strains varies by geography (particularly in urban areas), type of hospital, and patient age. For example, in the SENTRY Antimicrobial Surveillance Program, the rate of ESBL-producing strains of Klebsiella spp. in bloodstream infections between 1997 and 2002 was 43.7% in Latin America but 21.7% in Europe and 5.8% in North America (P , 0.001) [14]. Among North American strains recovered in 2001 from patients in ICUs, the ESBL-producing phenotype was found in 11.2% of E. coli isolates ...
Aminoglycosides are very important antibiotics in cystic fibrosis patients because of their efficacy against Ps aeruginosa. They are usually combined with a β lactam antibiotic in cases of pulmonary exacerbation caused by chronic colonisation with Ps aeruginosa.2-4 Several studies in severely ill patients have shown that once daily administration of aminoglycosides is as effective and probably less toxic than conventional thrice daily administration. For these antibiotics, efficacy is closely correlated with serum peak concentration and the ratio of serum peak to minimum inhibitory concentration of the bacteria, whereas toxicity depends on the trough serum level.7 16 17 Furthermore, the postantibiotic effect of aminoglycosides on Gram negative bacteria seems to be partly related to the serum peak value.8Administration once daily allows a high peak concentrations to be reached and enables the trough concentration to be as low as possible.. These conditions were clearly demonstrated in our study. ...
A special discussion about music and the ghosts of Americas racial past featuring two highly acclaimed authors. A murder mystery, a ghost story, and two cultural tourists collide in Hari Kunzrus spellbinding novel White Tears (Knopf, 2017), which connects contemporary cultural appropriation and white hawkers of black music with the history of racism and the forgotten geniuses of American music and Delta Mississippi Blues. Pulitzer-Prize winning writer Margo Jeffersons classic work of cultural criticism, On Michael Jackson (Pantheon, 2005), a complex and tender portrait of the King of Pop, reckons with child stardom and the specter of racial ghosts that shaped his celebrity.

Telithromycin Preferred for Acute Maxillary Sinusitis. Speaker: Itzhak Brook, MD, MSc, Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington, DC. The ketolide telithromycin (Ketek, Sanofi Aventis) has been found to be more effective than the macrolide azithromycin (Pfizer) in eradicating Streptococcus pneumoniae from the nasopharynges of patients with acute maxillary sinusitis. Furthermore, the emergence of antimicrobial resistance following therapy occurs only with azithromycin.. The growing resistance of S. pneumoniae to penicillin and macrolides has resulted in the development of a new class of antibiotics-the ketolides. A study designed to compare the efficacy of telithromycin with that of azithromycin enrolled 105 patients with acute maxillary sinusitis. Fifty-nine patients received once daily for three days, and 46 patients received telithromycin 800 mg once daily for five days. Nasopharyngeal cultures were obtained before therapy and at a follow-up ...

The β-lactamase inhibitor avibactam (NXL104) does not induce ampC β -lactamase in Enterobacter cloacae Christine Miossec, Monique Claudon, Premavathy Levasseur, Michael T Black Novexel, Romainville, France Abstract: Induction of ampC β-lactamase expression can often compromise antibiotic treatment and is triggered by several β-lactams (such as cefoxitin and imipenem) and by the β-lactamase inhibitor clavulanic acid. The novel β-lactamase inhibitor avibactam (NXL104) is a potent inhibitor of both class A and class C enzymes. The potential of avibactam for induction of ampC expression in Enterobacter cloacae was investigated by ampC messenger ribonucleic acid quantitation. Cefoxitin and clavulanic acid were confirmed as ampC inducers, whereas avibactam was found to exert no effect on ampC expression. Thus, avibactam is unlikely to diminish the activity of any partner β-lactam antibiotic against AmpC-producing organisms. Keywords: β-lactamase, ampC, induction, NXL104, avibactam
The emergence of extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae represents a major challenge to public and animal health in many countries including Lebanon. Carriage of ESBLs confers resistance to β-lactam antibiotics and more than 200 different sub-types have been identified, all of which are primarily encoded by genes located on conjugative plasmids. Despite the high prevalence of ESBLs, there is still a paucity of information regarding the impact of ESBL plasmid carriage on the host bacterium and how the spread of antibiotic resistance relates to antibiotic use in hospital environments. Therefore, the aim of this study was, firstly, to characterise the genetic and phenotypic properties of ESBL-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from a hospital in Lebanon. Secondly, to assess the fitness of isolates harbouring different sub-types of ESBLs in order to better understand the influence of the plasmid on the host bacterium, and thirdly, to correlate ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Topical imipenem therapy of aminoglycoside-resistant pseudomonas keratitis in rabbits. AU - Sawusch, M. R.. AU - OBrien, Terrence. AU - Valentine, J.. AU - Dick, J. D.. AU - Gottsch, J. D.. PY - 1988/1/1. Y1 - 1988/1/1. N2 - We used a rabbit model of bacterial keratitis to assess in vivo efficacy of topical imipenem, a highly potent β-lactam antibiotic with an unusually broad spectrum of activity, including aminoglycoside-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Albino rabbits received intrastromal injections of 5 x 102 organisms of an aminoglycoside-resistant strain of P. aeruginosa. At five hours postinoculation, imipenem (5 mg/ml) therapy was initiated using one drop per 30 minutes for 12 hours. Corneal tissue was then excised for colony forming unit counts. Imipenem was highly effective in reducing colony forming unit counts to zero in comparison to 4.1 x 105 organisms for untreated controls. A second regimen beginning 24 hours postinoculation of one drop per hour for 24 hours was ...
1. A novel vasoconstrictor peptide, neuropeptide Y (NPY), has been identified in considerable quantities in the renal artery and kidney. Within the kidney, NPY was confined to the cortex and corticomedullary interface, the regions where the juxtaglomerular apparatus is most numerous.. 2. In the isolated perfused rat kidney, NPY caused a prompt dose-dependent increase in perfusion pressure and reduction in flow, with only a small fall in glomerular filtration rate (GFR). In spite of the reduced renal perfusion, a dose-dependent natriuresis was observed. This response contrasts to the response of this preparation to noradrenaline, which causes sodium reabsorption.. 3. The presence of a potent vasoconstrictor and natriuretic peptide within the rat renovascular system suggests that it may play a significant role in the control of renal function.. ...

The results of a multicenter US survey using the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards currently recommended methodology for measuring in vitro susceptibility of 2673 isolates of Bacteroides fragilis group species were compared from 1997 to 2000. The test panel consisted of 14 antibiotics: 3 carbapenems, 3 β-lactam-β-lactamase inhibitors, 3 cephamycins, 2 fluoroquinolones, clindamycin, chloramphenicol, and metronidazole. Declines in the geometric mean minimum inhibitory concentrations were seen with imipenem, meropenem, ampicillin-sulbactam, and the cephamycins. Increased geometric means were observed with the fluoroquinolones and were usually accompanied by an increase in resistance rates. Bacteroides distasonis shows the highest resistance rates among β-lactam antibiotics, whereas Bacteroides vulgatus shows the highest resistance levels among fluoroquinolones. B. fragilis shows the lowest resistance rates for all antibiotics. All strains were susceptible to chloramphenicol ...
Staphylococcus aureus is a facultative anaerobic, Gram-positive coccal bacterium. In contemporary times, one of the major concerns in all fields of medicine is the emerging resistance to S. aureus. There are two types of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), that is, hospital acquired (HA) and community acquired (CA). HA-MRSA strains contain staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) I and II, which are larger and have the capacity for multidrug resistance. High expression of Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL), phenol-soluble modulins (PSM), α-toxin, core genome-encoded superantigen SEIX, and teichoic acid contributes to increased virulence in CA-MRSA strains. Methicillin resistance in staphylococci is due to the acquisition of a mobile genetic element (mec) called the SCCmec. All SCCmec types include the mecA gene, which codes for the low-affinity penicillin-binding protein (PBP) 2a. Resistance is due to the fact that β-lactam antibiotics cannot inhibit PBP2a. Biofilms are ...

1. We report observations on transport of the hydrolysis-resistant dipeptide glycylsarcosine by rings of everted hamster jejunum in vitro in the presence and absence of Na+, using several substituents for Na+: Li+, K+, Cs+, Tris, choline and mannitol.. 2. At most concentrations, mediated influx of glycylsarcosine was depressed by Li+, K+, Cs+ and Tris, though not abolished. At high concentrations, it was moderately increased by choline and mannitol. Under conditions in which the tissue could concentrate the peptide in the presence of Na+, uptake was greatly depressed by all the substituents and the ability to concentrate was abolished.. 3. The Kt of mediated influx was affected in different ways according to the substituent used. Kt was reduced by Li+ replacement of Na+ and increased by choline replacement. Vmax. was greatly reduced by all metallic substituents but not by non-metallic substituents.. 4. Though the results cannot yet be satisfactorily interpreted, they suggest possible reasons for ...
Resistance to β-lactam antibiotics is widespread among strains of Salmonella. The presence of extended-spectrum β-lactamases has been reported, and more recently, resistance to expanded-spectrum cephalosporins has emerged. The presence of a plasmid-mediated CMY-2 β-lactamase gene was first reported in Salmonella in an isolate of Salmonella serotype Senftenberg from an Algerian child in 1997 (12). Recently, plasmid-mediated CMY-2 AmpC β-lactamases have been identified in Salmonella in the United States (5, 6, 31). The blaCMY-2 gene has been shown to be present in Salmonella serotype Newport (31), and there is mounting evidence that this MDR serotype is becoming increasingly prevalent in the United States (5, 31).. In the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System for enteric bacteria (NARMS-EB) Veterinary Isolates Final Report of 1998, 3,318 Salmonella strains were tested for resistance to 17 antimicrobial agents, and 93 of 3,225 isolates (2.8%) were resistant to XNL (17). In ...
Infectious diseases represent an ever-changing field of practice. Virtually each week brings new information, some with the potential to adjust or reinvent the current clinical practice. It is our task as clinicians to browse through field literature, through reports of randomized controlled trials, excerpts of conference proceedings, and to choose relevant scoops with high applicability in patient management.. This supplement brings together four articles relevant to four different areas of medical practice, from HIV infection to Gram-negative bacilli such as Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and interdisciplinary studies on infectious acute maxillary sinusitis.. Non-infectious comorbidities are of utmost importance in the management of HIV infection, as occurrence of kidney impairment, or fractures following decrease in bone mineral density, can significantly impact the quality of life and/or even life expectancy. The study presented at the 11th Edition of the Scientific Days ...
