Lymphadenitis due to nontuberculous mycobacteria in children: presentation and response to therapy. (1/2885)

The most common manifestation of infection due to nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) in children is cervical lymphadenitis in an otherwise healthy patient. We identified and reviewed 19 cases of proven or presumptive lymphadenitis due to NTM seen at our hospital over the course of 13 months. Nine patients underwent initial surgical excision of involved lymph nodes. Ten children did not have involved lymph nodes excised initially and were treated with macrolide-containing antibiotic regimens. Of these patients, five required subsequent surgical excision and five were cured with combination chemotherapy. Six patients underwent radiographic imaging of the head and neck that revealed asymmetrical adenopathy with ring-enhancing masses but minimal inflammatory stranding of the subcutaneous fat, a finding that may distinguish adenitis caused by NTM from staphylococcal and streptococcal adenitis. Our data suggest that if surgical excision is not considered feasible, antimicrobial therapy for adenitis due to NTM may be beneficial for some patients.  (+info)

Apicularens A and B, new cytostatic macrolides from Chondromyces species (myxobacteria): production, physico-chemical and biological properties. (2/2885)

A novel macrolide, apicularen A, was produced by several species of the genus Chondromyces. Initially it was discovered by bioassay-guided RP-HPLC-fractionation of culture extracts of Chondromyces robustus, strain Cm a13. Apicularen A showed no antimicrobial activity, but was highly cytotoxic for cultivated human and animal cells, with IC50 values ranging between 0.1 and 3 ng/ml. A cometabolite of apicularen A, the N-acetylglucosamine glycoside apicularen B, was distinctly less cytotoxic with IC50 values between 0.2 and 1.2 microg/ml, and showed weak activity against a few Gram-positive bacteria. Apicularen A is chemically closely related to the salicylihalamides A and B from the marine sponge Haliclona sp.  (+info)

Efflux-mediated aminoglycoside and macrolide resistance in Burkholderia pseudomallei. (3/2885)

Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of melioidosis, is intrinsically resistant to a wide range of antimicrobial agents including beta-lactams, aminoglycosides, macrolides, and polymyxins. We used Tn5-OT182 to mutagenize B. pseudomallei to identify the genes involved in aminoglycoside resistance. We report here on the identification of AmrAB-OprA, a multidrug efflux system in B. pseudomallei which is specific for both aminoglycoside and macrolide antibiotics. We isolated two transposon mutants, RM101 and RM102, which had 8- to 128-fold increases in their susceptibilities to the aminoglycosides streptomycin, gentamicin, neomycin, tobramycin, kanamycin, and spectinomycin. In addition, both mutants, in contrast to the parent, were susceptible to the macrolides erythromycin and clarithromycin but not to the lincosamide clindamycin. Sequencing of the DNA flanking the transposon insertions revealed a putative operon consisting of a resistance, nodulation, division-type transporter, a membrane fusion protein, an outer membrane protein, and a divergently transcribed regulatorprotein. Consistent with the presence of an efflux system, both mutants accumulated [3H] dihydro streptomycin, whereas the parent strain did not. We constructed an amr deletion strain, B. pseudomallei DD503, which was hypersusceptible to aminoglycosides and macrolides and which was used successfully in allelic exchange experiments. These results suggest that an efflux system is a major contributor to the inherent high-level aminoglycoside and macrolide resistance found in B. pseudomallei.  (+info)

Ketolide treatment of Haemophilus influenzae experimental pneumonia. (4/2885)

The MICs of HMR 3004 and HMR 3647 at which 90% of beta-lactamase-producing Haemophilus influenzae isolates were inhibited were 4 and 2 micrograms/ml, respectively. Both HMR 3004 and HMR 3647 were active against beta-lactamase-producing H. influenzae in a murine model of experimental pneumonia. As assessed by pulmonary clearance of H. influenzae, HMR 3004 was more effective (P < 0.05) than was azithromycin, ciprofloxacin, clarithromycin, erythromycin A, pristinamycin, or HMR 3647 in this model.  (+info)

The effect of streptomycin, oxytetracycline, tilmicosin and phenylbutazone on spermatogenesis in bulls. (5/2885)

No adverse effects on semen quality were observed.  (+info)

The in-vitro activity of HMR 3647, a new ketolide antimicrobial agent. (6/2885)

The in-vitro activity of HMR 3647, a novel ketolide, was investigated in comparison with those of erythromycin A, roxithromycin, clarithromycin (14-membered ring macrolides), amoxycillin-clavulanate and ciprofloxacin against 719 recent clinical Gram-positive, Gram-negative and anaerobic isolates and type cultures. HMR 3647 generally demonstrated greater activity than the other compounds with MIC90s of < or =0.5 mg/L, except for Staphylococcus epidermidis (MIC90 > 128 mg/L), Haemophilus influenzae (MIC90 = 2 mg/L), Enterococcus faecalis (MIC90 = 2 mg/L), Enterococcus faecium (MIC90 = 1 mg/L) and the anaerobes, Bacteroides fragilis (MIC90 = 2 mg/L) and Clostridium difficile (MIC90 = 1 mg/L). In general, an increase in the size of the inoculum from 10(4) to 10(6) cfu on selected strains had little effect on the MICs of HMR 3647. Additionally, the in-vitro activity of HMR 3647 was not affected by the presence of either 20 or 70% (v/v) human serum. The antichlamydial activity of HMR 3647 was generally greater than that of commonly used antichlamydial antimicrobials.  (+info)

Reduced capacitative calcium entry correlates with vesicle accumulation and apoptosis. (7/2885)

A preneoplastic variant of Syrian hamster embryo cells, sup(+), exhibits decreased endoplasmic reticulum calcium levels and subsequently undergoes apoptosis in low serum conditions (Preston, G. A., Barrett, J. C., Biermann, J. A., and Murphy, E. (1997) Cancer Res. 57, 537-542). This decrease in endoplasmic reticulum calcium appears to be due, at least in part, to reduced capacitative calcium entry at the plasma membrane. Thus we investigated whether inhibition of capacitative calcium entry per se could reduce endoplasmic reticulum calcium and induce apoptosis of cells. We find that treatment with either SKF96365 (30-100 microM) or cell-impermeant 1,2-bis(o-amino-5-bromophenoxy)ethane-N,N,N', N'-tetraacetic acid (5-10 mM) is able to induce apoptosis of cells in conditions where apoptosis does not normally occur. Because previous work has implicated vesicular trafficking as a mechanism of regulating capacitative calcium entry, we investigated whether disruption of vesicular trafficking could lead to decreased capacitative calcium entry and subsequent apoptosis of cells. Coincident with low serum-induced apoptosis, we observed an accumulation of vesicles within the cell, suggesting deregulated vesicle trafficking. Treatment of cells with bafilomycin (30-100 nM), an inhibitor of the endosomal proton ATPase, produced an accumulation of vesicles, decreased capacitative entry, and induced apoptosis. These data suggest that deregulation of vesicular transport results in reduced capacitative calcium entry which in turn results in apoptosis.  (+info)

A comparison of florfenicol and tilmicosin for the treatment of undifferentiated fever in feedlot calves in western Canada. (8/2885)

A field trial was performed under commercial feedlot conditions in western Canada to compare the efficacy of florfenicol and tilmicosin for the treatment of undifferentiated fever (UF) in calves that received metaphylactic tilmicosin upon arrival at the feedlot. One thousand and eighty recently weaned, auction market derived, crossbred beef calves suffering from UF were allocated to one of 2 experimental groups as follows: florfenicol, which was intramuscular (i.m.) florfenicol administered at the rate of 20 mg/kg body weight (BW) at the time of allocation (Day 0) and again 48 h later, or tilmicosin, which was subcutaneous (s.c.) tilmicosin administered once at the rate of 10 mg/kg BW on day 0. Five hundred and forty-four animals were allocated to the florfenicol group and 536 animals were allocated to the tilmicosin group. The chronicity, wastage, overall mortality, and bovine respiratory disease (BRD) mortality rates were significantly (P < 0.05) lower in the florfenicol group than in the tilmicosin group. There were no significant (P > or = 0.05) differences in first UF relapse, second UF relapse, hemophilosis mortality, or miscellaneous mortality rates between the florfenicol and tilmicosin groups. Average daily gain (ADG) from arrival at the feedlot to the time of implanting and ADG from allocation to the time of implanting were significantly (P < 0.05) lower in the florfenicol group as compared with the tilmicosin group. There were no significant (P > or = 0.05) differences in arrival weight, allocation weight, implanting weight, or ADG from arrival to allocation between the experimental groups. In the economic analysis, there was an advantage of $18.83 CDN per animal in the florfenicol group. The results of this study indicate that florfenicol is superior to tilmicosin for the treatment of UF because of lower chronicity, wastage, overall mortality, and BRD mortality rates. However, interpretation of these observations must take into consideration the fact that these calves received meta-phylactic tilmicosin upon arrival at the feedlot, which is a standard, cost-effective, management procedure utilized by feedlots in western Canada.  (+info)

Macrolide antibiotics (MA) belong to a group of antibiotics of natural origin and they have been used in therapy of infectious diseases for over half a century.. Macrolide antibiotics have a complex cyclic structure with bacteriostatic mechanism of action. In low concentration of macrolide antibiotics, bacteria do not die, but cease to multiply.. Indications for using all macrolide antibiotics are different types of bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections (upper and lower), sexually transmitted infections, oral infections, infections of skin and soft tissues.. In addition, macrolide antibiotics are prescribed in intolerance to cephalosporins and penicillin allergy. Furthermore, macrolide antibiotics are used in the treatment of pertussis. The main advantage of macrolides compared to other antibiotics is their minimal toxicity.. Macrolide antibiotics are subdivided into two classes according to the method of obtaining: natural and semisynthetic. The list of macrolide ...
Two main mechanisms of macrolide resistance have been described in erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae (ERSP): a ribosomal methylase, ErmAM, and a macrolide efflux pump, MefE. In this study, we examined the prevalence of these mechanisms in 114 clinical isolates of ERSP from a 30-center study conducted in the United States between November 1994 and April 1995. The isolates were screened by polymerase chain reaction for the presence of known macrolide resistance genes. Seventy (61%) ERSP contained the macrolide efflux gene (mefE), whereas 36 isolates (32%) contained the biosomal methylase gene (ermAM). Isolates that were ermAM-positive had constitutive macrolide resistance. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (for which 90% of isolates were susceptible) of clarithromycin for the efflux-positive strains were much lower than those for the ermAM-positive strains (4 microg/mL vs. |128 microg/mL, respectively). The efflux mechanism is the predominant form of macrolide resistance in the United

The aim of this study was to analyze trends in adult invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) due to macrolide-resistant strains and to study the evolution of serotypes, genotypes, and macrolide-resistant determinants of strains collected in a prospective study between 1999 and 2007 in Barcelona, Spain. IPD due to macrolide-resistant strains of serotypes included in the 7-valent conjugate vaccine (PCV7) decreased from 2.16/100,000 (pre-PCV7 period, 1999 to 2001) to 0.80/100,000 (late-PCV7 period, 2005 to 2007) (P = 0.001), whereas IPD due to macrolide-resistant strains of non-PCV7 serotypes increased from 1.08/100,000 to 2.83/100,000 (P , 0.001). These changes were related to a fall of clones of PCV7 serotypes (ST81 [P , 0.05], ST90, ST315, and ST17) and an increase in new clones of serotypes 19A and 24F (ST230) and 33F (ST717) in the late-PCV7 period. The most common phenotype was MLSB (90.9%), related to the erm(B) gene. The frequent association between MLSB phenotype and tetracycline resistance ...

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Glycosyltransferases involved in linking polyketide macrolactones with deoxysugars are key enzymes for combinatorial biosynthesis of novel macrolide anti-infective agents. In this proposal, a new gene shuffling technology, RACHITT, is applied to the desosarninyl transferase (Des VII) from the pikromycin biosynthetic pathway of Streptomyces venezuelae. Des VII is an enzyme with remarkable inherent substrate flexibility, and we expect to expand further its substrate spectrum to include 16-membered ring macrolactones. This technology is expected to provide glycosyltransferase enzymes that can catalyze the biosynthesis of 12-, 14-, and 16-membered ring macrolides. Moreover, we expect to generate a recombinant DesVII that has a higher enzymatic activity toward the 14-membered ring macrolactone narbonolide. This will be a key step in combinatorial biosynthesis of ketolide antibiotics that have a potential to combat multi-drug resistant bacterial pathogens. PROPOSED ...
The pharmacokinetics of orally administered solithromycin in healthy subjects have recently been reported (17). Following escalating single doses (50 to 1,600 mg), Cmax and measurements of AUC increased in a greater-than-dose-proportional manner up to 1,200 mg. The mean elimination half-life also increased from 3.16 to 7.42 h over the dosing range evaluated. Administration of a high-fat meal was shown to not affect the oral bioavailability of solithromycin. Moderate amounts of accumulation (1.7 to 2.2 times greater on day 7 than on day 1) were observed after multiple daily doses (200, 400, and 600 mg).. The observed plasma concentrations in our study are similar to those obtained with 400 mg in the multiple-oral-dose pharmacokinetic study of solithromycin (17). The mean (± SD) plasma Cmax of solithromycin in that study was 1.09 ± 0.52 mg/liter (at a mean Tmax of 4.00 h), whereas our observed Cmax was 0.90 ± 0.46 mg/liter (at a mean Tmax of 3.57 h). Similarly, the reported trough plasma ...

During the last century, infections by S. pyogenes claimed many lives especially since the body is the most important cause of puerperal fever (sepsis after childbirth). Scarlet fever once a serious complication of streptococcal infection, but now, thanks to antibiotic treatment, it is a little more strep throat accompanied by a rash. Similarly, Rose (a type of cellulitis accompanied by fever and systemic toxicity) is less common today. However, there has been a recent increase in the variety, severity and consequences of infection with Streptococcus pyogenes and the resurgence of severe invasive infections, prompting descriptions of skin bacteria eat in the media. A full explanation of inheritance and rebirth is not known. Today, the pathogen of major concern because of sporadic cases of rapidly progressive disease and because of the low risk of serious consequences of untreated infections in. These diseases are a major health problem worldwide, and effort is directed to clarify the risks and ...
OBJECTIVES: To test four 16-membered macrolides (josamycin, spiramycin, midecamycin and rokitamycin) along with other compounds in the same class (erythromycin, clarithromycin, roxithromycin and azithromycin) plus clindamycin and telithromycin, against Streptococcus pyogenes and Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates with well-characterized resistance genotypes. METHODS: Four hundred and eighty-six isolates of S. pyogenes and 375 isolates of S. pneumoniae were assayed for their macrolide susceptibilities and investigated by PCR to detect their different erythromycin resistance genes. All strains had been isolated over the period 2002-2003 from specimens of different human origin obtained in 14 different Italian centres. RESULTS: All 16-membered macrolides showed very low MICs (MIC(50)s and MIC(90)s, , or =0.06-0.5 mg/L) for the erythromycin-susceptible isolates and for those with the M phenotype, but the telithromycin MICs for the M-type isolates were at least four times higher (MIC(90)s, 0.5 mg/L). ...
The presence of macrolide-resistant Myocplasma pneumoniae has been frequently reported in recent years, especially in China. In this study, we investigated the antimicrobial susceptibility and genotype against M. pneumoniae isolates from 2014 to 2016, Beijing. We investigated the activities of four antibiotics against 81 M. pneumoniae isolates in vitro. All isolates were amplification of domains II and V of the 23S rRNA gene and the L4 and L22 ribosomal protein fragments. All isolates were genotyped with duplex real-time PCR, MLVA and VNTR detection in p1 gene. The macrolide resistance rate was 65.4% (53/81). Each of the macrolide-resistant M. pneumoniae isolates was resistant to erythromycin (Minimum Inhibitory Concentration, MIC, ≥256 μg/ml) and azithromycin (MIC, 2-64 μg/ml), but susceptible to tetracycline and levofloxacin in vitro. Fifty two macrolide-resistant isolates harbored the A2063G mutation, and only 1 macrolide-resistant isolates harbored the A2064G mutation in domain V of the 23S
We conducted a case-control study of adults with bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia to identify factors associated with macrolide resistance. Study participants were identified through population-based surveillance in a 5-county region surrounding Philadelphia. Forty-three hospitals contributed 444 patients, who were interviewed by telephone regarding potential risk factors. In multivariable analyses, prior exposure to a macrolide antimicrobial agent (odds ratio [OR] 2.8), prior flu vaccination (OR 2.0), and Hispanic ethnicity (OR 4.1) were independently associated with an increased probability of macrolide resistance, and a history of stroke was independently associated with a decreased probability of macrolide resistance (OR 0.2). Fifty-five percent of patients with macrolide-resistant infections reported no antimicrobial drug exposure in the preceding 6 months. Among patients who reported taking antimicrobial agents in the 6 months preceding infection, failure to complete the course of prescribed

AU - Fernandes, Prabha. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Solithromycin is a fluoro-ketolide (a fourth-generation macrolide) antibiotic that has been undergoing clinical trials for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia. In this study, development of the tri-amino acid-buffered solithromycin intravenous (IV) formulation was performed to minimize the occurrence of infusion-associated local adverse events (infusion-site pain or phlebitis) observed in patients who received the tartaric acid-buffered IV formulation with a lower buffered capacity during phase I clinical trials. Development of the tri-amino acids-buffered solithromycin IV formulation was achieved using a dynamic in vitro precipitation model. Computational modeling also supports the superiority of the amino acid-buffered ...
Community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP) is an acute infection of the pulmonary parenchyma with symptoms such as fever or hypothermia, chills, rigors, chest pain, and/or dyspnea. The widespread emergence of antibiotic resistant pathogens, including the macrolide-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae, has resulted in a need for new and effective antibiotics that have activity against CABP pathogens. Solithromycin is a fourth generation macrolide antibiotic with excellent activity against resistant S. pneumoniae and other key typical and atypical bacterial respiratory pathogens. A completed Phase 2 study showed comparable efficacy to levofloxacin in adults with CABP ...
Objectives: Understanding changing resistance patterns is important in determining appropriate antibiotic treatments. This meta-analysis systematically evaluated resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Streptococcus pyogenes to macrolide antibiotics among patients with community-acquired respiratory tract infections.. Methods: MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched and experts were consulted to identify published and unpublished literature reporting macrolide resistance rates. Identified studies were evaluated by two independent reviewers; those meeting a priori specified criteria (resistance by patient condition and strain, resistance thresholds, 1997-2003 isolates) were included. Data from included studies were abstracted by two independent reviewers using a standard review form. Discrepancies in abstracted data were resolved by the study investigator.. Results: Random-effects meta-analysis was performed for outcomes present in at least four studies overall and for specified subgroups. ...

For years, the discrepancies between in vitro and in vivo data have long interfered with our understanding of the role of polyketide-derived lipids in Mtb pathogenicity. Indeed, the biological activities described for polyketide-derived lipids were consistent with their contribution to the interaction between Mtb and its host and to its virulence: for example, SL can modulate host cell responses, including phagosome-lysosome fusion and cytokine production (Goren et al., 1976; Pabst et al., 1988; Zhang et al., 1988; Brozna et al., 1991), and DAT/PAT can strongly inhibit the proliferation of T cells (Saavedra et al., 2001), and the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines (Lee et al., 2007). However, investigations in vivo showing no phenotype for Mtb mutants deficient in the synthesis of SL or DAT/PAT, or both (Converse et al., 2003; Rousseau et al., 2003a,b; Chesne-Seck et al., 2008) did not support a role in pathogenesis of Mtb. In this study, we established that: (i) polyketide-derived lipids ...
The present meta-analysis, involving 20,819,622 individuals from 33 studies, found significantly increased risk of SCD or VTA, cardiovascular death, and MI in users of macrolides. This association with increased CV risk seemed to be present with current use of macrolides and disappeared for former use. In stratified analysis, azithromycin, clarithromycin, and erythromycin were associated with increased risk of SCD or VTA and azithromycin and clarithromycin with increased risk of CV death, but only clarithromycin was associated with increased risk of all-cause mortality. In terms of absolute risk, use of macrolides would account for an estimated 118.1 SCD or VTAs, 36.6 SCDs, and 38.2 cardiac deaths per 1 million courses.. Interpretation of the clinical importance of this finding is delicate. The estimates for additional SCDs and cardiac deaths per 1 million treatment courses are remarkably close, suggesting that most VTA observed in the macrolide groups might not result in fatal outcomes. The ...

We observed a slightly increased risk of breast cancer with antibiotic use overall with minimal, if any, evidence for a dose-response relationship. Only two antibiotic groups, tetracyclines and macrolides, showed HRs of ,1.1 for ,100 days of use, and the 95% CI for macrolides overlapped 1.0. Tetracyclines showed some evidence of dose response. Lincosamide use documented in an earlier, smaller database was associated with breast cancer risk in longer-term follow-up than is yet available for the more recent pharmacy (PIMS) cohort. This association could not be adequately reevaluated and could have been due to chance.. Chance sampling variation is an unlikely explanation for the small increase in risk seen for use of any antibiotic of up to 500 days, given the narrow confidence intervals (Table 1). A more likely explanation for small increases in risk is uncontrolled confounding. The use of antibiotics for symptoms of breast cancer before it was diagnosed was ruled out by the similarity of findings ...

We have been able to demonstrate in this patient that infusion of Bryo-1 for 72 h induces peripheral blood lymphocyte HC morphology and increases the sensitivity of cells to 2-CdA. Moreover, there was a significant reduction of lymphocyte count from 37.1 × 103/μl before the treatment to 3.4 × 103/μl, and partial remission was achieved 2 months after the treatment. Sequential treatment with Bryo-1 followed by 2-CdA induced the initiation of apoptosis.. Bryo-1 has been reported to induce differentiation of CLL cells of B-cell origin to a HC stage in vitro (2) . We have previously documented that Bryo-1-treated CLL cells exhibit increased sensitivity to 2-CdA, a drug active in treating de novo HCL but not active in fludarabine-resistant CLL. In WSU-CLL cells in vitro as well as the xenograft model in SCID mice, the efficacy of 2-CdA was enhanced when the cells were first exposed to Bryo-1 (6 , 7) . Administration of Bryo-1 followed by 2-CdA appeared to be sequence-dependent because neither ...
