Comparison of efficacies of oral levofloxacin and oral ciprofloxacin in a rabbit model of a staphylococcal abscess. (1/601)

Oral levofloxacin was compared to oral ciprofloxacin in a Staphylococcus aureus subcutaneous abscess model in rabbits. Rabbits were surgically prepared with subcutaneous wiffle balls (43 mm in diameter) and allowed to recover for 4 to 6 weeks. Rabbits were infected by direct injection into the capsule with S. aureus ATCC 29213 (5 x 10(5) CFU) and were allowed to remain infected for 8 days before the initiation of anti-infective treatment. Efficacy was determined by assessing the bacterial load within the capsule over a 10-day treatment period. In single-dose pharmacokinetic studies in infected rabbits, similar area under the concentration-time curve/MIC ratios were obtained in the plasma and abscess fluid for levofloxacin at 45 mg/kg of body weight and ciprofloxacin at 200 mg/kg of body weight. Similar efficacies were seen with levofloxacin at 45 mg/kg/day and ciprofloxacin 400 mg/kg/day by day 10. In this model, levofloxacin was significantly more efficacious than ciprofloxacin (P < 0.01).  (+info)

Pharmacodynamic comparisons of levofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and ampicillin against Streptococcus pneumoniae in an in vitro model of infection. (2/601)

The increasing frequency of penicillin-resistant pneumococcus continues to be of concern throughout the world. Newer fluoroquinolone antibiotics, such as levofloxacin, have shown enhanced in vitro activity against Streptococcus pneumoniae. In this study, the bactericidal characteristics and pharmacodynamic profiles of levofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and ampicillin against four isolates of S. pneumoniae were compared by using an in vitro model of infection. Standard antibiotic dosing regimens which simulated the pharmacokinetic profile observed in humans were used. Control and treatment models were sampled for bacterial CFU per milliliter over the duration of each 24- or 48-h experiment. In addition, treatment models were sampled for MIC determinations and drug concentration. Regrowth of all isolates as well as an increase in MICs throughout the study period was observed in the ciprofloxacin experiments. A limited amount of regrowth was noted during levofloxacin therapy for one isolate; however, no change in MIC was detected for any isolate. Ampicillin showed rapid and sustained bactericidal activity against all isolates. In this study, ratios of effective fluoroquinolone area under the concentration-time curve (AUC):MIC values ranged from 30 to 55. Levofloxacin, owing to its larger AUC0-24 values, has excellent and sustained activity against different pneumococcal strains superior to that of ciprofloxacin.  (+info)

In vitro activities of ketolides HMR 3647 [correction of HRM 3647] and HMR 3004 [correction of HRM 3004], levofloxacin, and other quinolones and macrolides against Neisseria spp. and Moraxella catarrhalis. (3/601)

In vitro activities of the ketolides HMR 3647 [corrected] and HMR 3004 [corrected] against pathogenic Neisseria gonorrhoeae and N. meningitidis, saprophytic Neisseria isolates, and Moraxella catarrhalis were determined. The comparison of ketolide activities with those of the other macrolides shows a much better activity in the majority of species, with macrolide MICs at which 90% of the isolates are inhibited between 8- and 10-fold higher.  (+info)

The antibacterial efficacy of levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin against Pseudomonas aeruginosa assessed by combining antibiotic exposure and bacterial susceptibility. (4/601)

Ciprofloxacin has a four-fold greater in-vitro activity than levofloxacin against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, but levofloxacin has a four-fold higher area under the serum concentration-time curve (AUC) for an equivalent dose. It has been proposed that the AUC/MIC ratio is a general predictor of antibacterial efficacy for quinolones. Using an in-vitro kill curve technique, performed in quadruplicate, with nine antibiotic concentrations and three strains of P. aeruginosa with varying quinolone susceptibility, we constructed sigmoidal dose-response curves for AUC(0-6.5)/MIC and area under the bacterial kill curve (AUBKC) or AUC(0-24)/MIC and log change in viable count at 24 h (delta24). For levofloxacin the log AUC(0-6.5)/MIC ratio to produce 50% of the maximal effect was 0.74 +/- 0.13 (r2 = 0.9435) for levofloxacin and 0.82 +/- 0.06 (r2 = 0.7935) for ciprofloxacin. The log AUC(0-24)/MIC ratio to produce 50% maximal effect was 1.58 +/- 0.13 (r2 = 0.7788) for levofloxacin and 1.37 +/- 0.12 (r2 = 0.7207) for ciprofloxacin. An AUC(0-24)/MIC ratio of 125 produced 85.4% of the maximal response with levofloxacin and 81.5% with ciprofloxacin. These data suggest that levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin have equivalent activity against P. aeruginosa at equivalent AUC/MIC ratios.  (+info)

Primary Shewanella alga septicemia in a patient on hemodialysis. (5/601)

We report the first Japanese case of primary septicemia with Shewanella alga and also describe the bacteriological characteristics of and results of antibiotic susceptibility tests of the isolate. S. alga was repeatedly isolated, at times simultaneously with Escherichia coli, from the blood of a 64-year-old female undergoing hemodialysis. The isolated organism was determined to be S. alga based on recently published identification criteria, such as hemolysis on sheep blood agar, no acid production from carbohydrates, and growth on agar containing 6. 5% NaCl. Results of antibiotic susceptibility tests demonstrated that the isolate was sensitive to levofloxacin and cefpirome (MICs, 128, 64, and 8 microg/ml, respectively). Although the role of S. alga as a human pathogen has not been fully determined, accumulating data suggest that this organism may be a potential pathogen, especially in compromised hosts.  (+info)

Use of a genetic approach to evaluate the consequences of inhibition of efflux pumps in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. (6/601)

Drug efflux pumps in Pseudomonas aeruginosa were evaluated as potential targets for antibacterial therapy. The potential effects of pump inhibition on susceptibility to fluoroquinolone antibiotics were studied with isogenic strains that overexpress or lack individual efflux pumps and that have various combinations of efflux- and target-mediated mutations. Deletions in three efflux pump operons were constructed. As expected, deletion of the MexAB-OprM efflux pump decreased resistance to fluoroquinolones in the wild-type P. aeruginosa (16-fold reduction for levofloxacin [LVX]) or in the strain that overexpressed mexAB-oprM operon (64-fold reduction for LVX). In addition to that, resistance to LVX was significantly reduced even for the strains carrying target mutations (64-fold for strains for which LVX MICs were >4 microg/ml). We also studied the frequencies of emergence of LVX-resistant variants from different deletion mutants and the wild-type strain. Deletion of individual pumps or pairs of the pumps did not significantly affect the frequency of emergence of resistant variants (at 4x the MIC for the wild-type strain) compared to that for the wild type (10(-6) to 10(-7)). In the case of the strain with a triple deletion, the frequency of spontaneous mutants was undetectable (<10(-11)). In summary, inhibition of drug efflux pumps would (i) significantly decrease the level of intrinsic resistance, (ii) reverse acquired resistance, and (iii) result in a decreased frequency of emergence of P. aeruginosa strains highly resistant to fluoroquinolones in clinical settings.  (+info)

Levofloxacin versus cefuroxime axetil in the treatment of acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis: results of a randomized, double-blind study. (7/601)

A randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, three-arm parallel design, multicentre study was conducted among adult patients with acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis (AECB) in order to compare the efficacy and safety of two different doses of levofloxacin with cefuroxime axetil. A total of 832 patients were randomized to receive oral levofloxacin (250 mg od or 500 mg od) or oral cefuroxime axetil (250 mg bd) for 7-10 days. The primary efficacy analysis was based on the clinical response in patients with bacteriologically confirmed AECB, determined 5-14 days after the end of therapy (per-protocol population). Of 839 patients enrolled (at 71 centres in 14 countries), seven were not treated, giving an intention-to-treat (ITT) population of 832. In total, 281 patients received levofloxacin 250 mg, 280 received levofloxacin 500 mg and 271 received cefuroxime axetil. The cure rates in the ITT population were: levofloxacin 250 mg, 70% (196/281); levofloxacin 500 mg, 70% (195/280); cefuroxime axetil, 61% (166/271); those in the per-protocol population were: 78% (121/156), 79% (108/137) and 66% (88/134), respectively. Both doses of levofloxacin were at least as effective as cefuroxime axetil and were active against the main pathogens of clinical relevance (Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Moraxella catarrhalis). All three treatment regimens were equally well tolerated. In conclusion, the results show that levofloxacin (250 mg and 500 mg) od is effective and well tolerated in the treatment of AECB in adult patients.  (+info)

Pharmacodynamics of levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin against Streptococcus pneumoniae. (8/601)

An in-vitro pharmacokinetic model was used to compare the pharmacodynamics of levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin against four penicillin-susceptible and four penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae. Logarithmic-phase cultures were exposed to the peak concentrations of levofloxacin or ciprofloxacin observed in human serum after 500 mg and 750 mg oral doses, human elimination pharmacokinetics were simulated, and viable bacterial counts were measured at 0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24 and 36 h. Levofloxacin was rapidly and significantly bactericidal against all eight strains evaluated, with eradication of six strains occurring despite area under the inhibitory curve over 24 h (AUIC24) values of only 32-64 SIT(-1) x h (serum inhibitory titre over time). The pharmacodynamics of ciprofloxacin were more variable and the rate of bacterial killing was consistently slower than observed with levofloxacin. Ciprofloxacin eradicated five strains despite having an AUIC24 of only 44 SIT(-1) x h. These data suggest that the increased potency of levofloxacin and more favourable pharmacokinetics compared with ciprofloxacin provide enhanced pharmacodynamic activity against S. pneumoniae. Furthermore, these data suggest that the minimum AUIC required for clinical efficacy against and eradication of S. pneumoniae with levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin may be well below the 125 SIT(-1) x h identified by other studies.  (+info)

The development of a new class of antibiotics to fight bacterial resistance is a time-consuming effort associated with high-cost and commercial risks. Thus, modification, conjugation or combination of existing antibiotics to enhance their efficacy is a suitable strategy. We have previously reported that the amphiphilic cyclic peptide [R4W4] had antibacterial activity with a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 2.97 µg/mL against Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Herein, we hypothesized that conjugation or combination of the amphiphilic cyclic peptide [R4W4] with levofloxacin or levofloxacin-Q could improve the antibacterial activity of levofloxacin and levofloxacin-Q. Fmoc/tBu solid-phase chemistry was employed to synthesize conjugates of [R4W4K]-levofloxacin-Q and [R4W4K]-levofloxacin. The carboxylic acid group of levofloxacin or levofloxacin-Q was conjugated with the amino group of β-alanine attached to lysine in the presence of 2-(1H-benzotriazol-1-yl)-1,1,3,3
An active comparator, parallel group study comparing levofloxacin 1.5% and moxifloxacin 0.5% in patients undergoing cataract surgery showed significantly greater aqueous penetration of levofloxacin, measured as area under the curve over a 6-hour interval. Levofloxacin also had a significantly higher Cmax and significantly higher maximum concentration at the end of the dose interval. These findings indicate a possible role for levofloxacin in the prophylaxis of endophthalmitis at the time of cataract surgery.

Levofloxacin ophthalmic solution is designed to eradicate targeted pathogens by inhibiting both topoisomerase IV and DNA gyrase, a dual mechanism of action similar to newer fluoroquinolones. Resistance to levofloxacin due to spontaneous mutation in vitro is a rare occurrence, according to the company. Also, when Skelnik and colleagues tested it in human cell cultures, the solution demonstrated less cytotoxicity than other marketed fluoroquinolones. Compared [with] existing ophthalmic fluoroquinolones, [levofloxacin] offers a higher sustained concentration option, said Penny A. Asbell, MD, professor of ophthalmology and director of cornea services, external disease, and refractive surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York. This, paired with its dual mechanism of action, provides a new and important option for doctors corneal ulcer treatment.

Against the biofilm-forming cells, levofloxacin showed a strong bactericidal activity; however, ciprofloxacin, ceftazidime, and gentamicin were hardly effective. There are two main reasons that the latter antibacterial agents are not as effective on biofilm-forming cells as they are on planktonic cells. One is that the biofilm-forming cells are slow- or nongrowing (29). Another is a reduction in antibacterial penetration through the biofilm layer, because alginate, the main constituent of the biofilm, plays a barrier role (6, 9, 10). The bactericidal activity of levofloxacin against nongrowing cells of P. aeruginosa was as strong as that of ciprofloxacin but superior to that of gentamicin. Ceftazidime hardly showed bactericidal activity against nongrowing cells. However, the diffusion rate of levofloxacin through the alginate layer was not as high as that of ceftazidime but slightly higher than that of ciprofloxacin. The diffusion rate of gentamicin was below the limit of detection. These ...

The objective of the current study is to develop a validated specific stability-indicating isocratic reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method for the quantitative determination of levofloxacin and its related substances in pharmaceutical dosage forms in the presence of degradation products and its process-related impurities. Forced degradation studies were performed on levofloxacin as per the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH)-prescribed stress conditions using acid, base, oxidative, water hydrolysis, thermal stress and photolytic degradation to show the stability-indicating power of the method. Significant degradation was observed during oxidative stress; minor degradation was observed in acidic stress and no degradation was observed in other stress conditions. The chromatographic method was optimized using the samples generated from forced degradation studies and the spiked impurity solution. The analysis was carried out with a 50 mm length × 4.6 mm i.d., 3.0 μm particle ...

Abstract Levofloxacin (LVFX) is widely used in clinical treatment due to it has a broad spectrum of in vitro activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Human serum albumin (HSA) is the most abundant protein in plasma and constitutes approximately half of the protein founds in human blood. And more than 90% of the drugs used in people are bound to HSA. So it is commonly used for the investigation of drug-serum albumin interaction because the binding will significantly influence the absorption, distribution, metabolism excretion, stability and toxicity of the drugs. Therefore, detailed investigating the interaction of LVFX with HSA is very important to understand the pharmacokinetic behavior of the LVFX. In this paper, the interaction of LVFX and HSA has been studied fluorescence, UV, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) and molecular modeling method. The results indicated that LVFX induced the intrinsic fluorescence quenching of HSA though a static quenching procedure, and the ...
If your symptoms do not improve within a few days, or if they become worse, check with your doctor. Levofloxacin may rarely cause inflammation (tendinitis) or tearing of a tendon (the cord that attaches muscles to the bones). This can occur while you are taking the medicine or after you finish using it. The risk of having tendon problems may be increased if you are over 60 years of age, are using steroid medicines (eg, dexamethasone, prednisolone, prednisone, or Medrol®), have severe kidney problems, have a history of tendon problems (eg, rheumatoid arthritis), or have received an organ (eg, heart, kidney, or lung) transplant. Check with your doctor right away if you get sudden pain or swelling in a tendon after exercise (eg, in the ankle, back of the knee or leg, shoulder, elbow, or wrist), bruise more easily after an injury, or are unable to bear weight or move the affected area. Refrain from exercise until your doctor says otherwise. This medicine may cause serious allergic reactions, ...

Background and aims Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus invade and multiply in THP-1 monocytes. Fluoroquinolones accumulate in these cells, but are less active against intracellular than extracellular forms of L. monocytogenes and S. aureus. We examined whether differentiation of THP-1 monocytes into adherent, macrophage-like cells increases fluoroquinolone uptake and activity. Methods THP-1 monocytes were differentiated with phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) and compared with unstimulated cells for: (i) moxifloxacin and levofloxacin accumulation; and (ii) activity against phagocytosed L. monocytogenes and S. aureus (5 h contact). Results The differentiation of THP-1 monocytes caused: (i) a 3- to 4-fold increase in moxifloxacin uptake and a significant increase in its activity against intracellular L. monocytogenes (from 1.3 log(10) to 2.1 log(10) cfu decrease compared with the post-phagocytosis inoculum), but not against S. aureus (1.0-1.2 log(10) cfu decrease throughout); and (ii) ...
Clinical antimicrobial susceptibility breakpoints are used to predict the clinical outcome of antimicrobial treatment. In contrast, microbiologic breakpoints are used to identify isolates that may be categorized as susceptible when applying clinical breakpoints but harbor resistance mechanisms that result in their reduced susceptibility to the agent being tested. Currently, the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) guidelines utilize clinical breakpoints to characterize the activity of the fluoroquinolones against Streptococcus pneumoniae. To determine whether levofloxacin breakpoints can identify isolates that harbor recognized resistance mechanisms, we examined 115 S. pneumoniae isolates with a levofloxacin MIC of >2 mg/mL for first-step parC mutations. A total of 48 (59%) of 82 isolates with a levofloxacin MIC of 2 mg/mL, a level considered susceptible by NCCLS criteria, had a first-step mutation in parC. Whether surveillance programs that use levofloxacin data can ...

A phase 3, multi-center, multinational, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of levofloxacin inhalation solution (APT-1026) in stable cystic fibrosis patients. Flume PA, VanDevanter DR, Morgan EE, Dudley MN, Loutit JS, Bell SC, Kerem E, Fischer R, Smyth AR, Aaron SD, Conrad D, Geller DE,Elborn JS. J Cyst Fibros. 2016 Jul;15(4):495-502. doi: 10.1016/j.jcf.2015.12.004. Epub 2016 Feb 4. Abstract RATIONALE: For patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), the use of inhaled antibiotics has become standard of care to suppress chronic Pseudomonas airways infection. There are limited antibiotic options formulated and approved for inhaled use and antibiotic efficacies attenuate over time, making additional inhaled antibiotic classes desirable. APT-1026 (levofloxacin inhalation solution, LIS) is a fluoroquinolone in development for management of chronic P. aeruginosa airways infection in patients with CF. OBJECTIVES: To compare the safety and efficacy

OBJECTIVE: The 2007 American Thoracic Society/Infectious Diseases Society of America (ATS/IDSA) guidelines recommend that community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) patients admitted to hospital wards initially receive respiratory fluoroquinolone monotherapy or beta-lactam plus macrolide combination therapy. There is little evidence as to which regimen is preferred, or if differences in medical resource utilization exist between therapies. Thus, the authors compared length of hospital stay (LOS) and length of intravenous antibiotic therapy (LOIV) for patients who received initial levofloxacin 750 mg daily versus ceftriaxone 1000 mg plus azithromycin 500 mg daily (combination therapy).. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Adult hospital CAP cases from January 2005 to December 2007 were identified by principal discharge diagnosis code. Patients with a chest infiltrate and medical notes indicative of CAP were included. Direct intensive care unit admits and healthcare-associated cases were excluded. A propensity ...

The secondary statistical goal is to establish non-inferiority of CXA-201 to levofloxacin with respect to the composite microbiological eradication and clinical cure rate in the ME at TOC population. A 95% CI (normal approximation to the binomial distribution) around the treatment difference (CXA-201 minus levofloxacin) will be calculated. CXA-201 will be considered non-inferior to levofloxacin if the lower limit of the 95% CI around the treatment difference (CXA-201 minus levofloxacin) is greater than minus 10%. As sensitivity analyses, an appropriate statistical method (e.g., propensity score) will be used to adjust for potential confounding covariates associated with treatment assignment when constructing CIs around the treatment differences ...

The gastrointestinal secretion of quinolone antibacterial drugs is an important route, although these drugs are well absorbed from the intestine (Sörgel et al., 1991). The detailed mechanisms involved in the intestinal transport of quinolones are still unknown. In our study, to investigate the mechanisms of intestinal absorption and secretion of quinolones, the transport characteristics of grepafloxacin and levofloxacin were examined by Caco-2 cell monolayers.. Both grepafloxacin and levofloxacin showed much higher levels of transport from the basolateral to the apical side than in the opposite direction, which corresponds to intestinal secretion (Fig. 2, A and C). This unidirectional transport was decreased in the presence of the corresponding unlabeled quinolone, accompanied by increased accumulation (Fig. 2). The CLC-A of grepafloxacin and levofloxacin was much larger than CLC-B, although CLB-C was comparable to or less than CLA-C (Table 1). These results indicated that the unidirectional ...
