Previous reports have suggested an increasing incidence of highly fluoroquinolone-resistant Escherichia coli causing bacteremia among cancer patients on prophylactic therapy. We used genotyping by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of chromosomal DNA digests and random amplified polymorphic DNA fingerprinting to study clonal relationships among such isolates obtained at 10 cancer centers located across Europe and the Middle East. Analysis by both methods indicated that isolates from different centers were genotypically unrelated to each other. There were five centers from which more than one individual patient isolate was available, and most demonstrated significant within-center genetic diversity of strains. Strains shared among patients could be identified at two centers. At the center with the largest number of bloodstream isolates from cancer patients available, fluoroquinolone-resistant control isolates from surgical patients and fluoroquinolone-susceptible control isolates from patients ...
Title: New Fluoroquinolones: A Class of Potent Antibiotics. VOLUME: 5 ISSUE: 11. Author(s):Marcus V. N. De Souza. Affiliation:FioCruz-Fundacao Oswaldo Cruz, Instituto de Tecnologia em Farmacos-Far-Manguinhos, Rua Sizenando Nabuco, 100, Manguinhos, 21041-250 - Rio de Janeiro-RJ, Brazil.. Keywords:fluoroquinolones, fluorine, microbiological activity, antibiotics. Abstract: The discovery of antibiotics opened a new era in the treatment against several pathogenic microorganisms that can disable or kill humans. The appearance of the fluoroquinolones (based on nalidixic acid, 4-quinolone-3-carboxylates), in the early 1980s, gave a new impetus in the treatment of infectious diseases. Despite these favourable properties, the earlier fluoroquinolones had limited potency against some clinically important organisms, especially Gram-positive pathogens so that the development of resistance to these organisms has become a serious problem. Thus the development of new fluoroquinolones with a better ...
In addition to showing an association between fluoroquinolones and tendon rupture, a new study published by BMJ Open also finds that the popular antibiotics may contribute to aortic aneurysms. Researchers analyzed data from over 1.7 million older adults and observed roughly tripled incidences of tendon rupture and aortic aneurysms in those who took fluoroquinolone (FLQs).. Fluoroquinolones are a widely prescribed type of broad-spectrum antibiotics, used primarily in treating urinary and respiratory infections. Despite their popularity, FLQs have been linked to various severe health complications, such as tendon rupture and nerve damage. Recently, an MDL was established in Minnesota to handle federal fluoroquinolone lawsuits. Over 200 plaintiffs who have filed fluoroquinolone lawsuits claim they or a loved one suffered serious nerve damage, called peripheral neuropathy, after taking a fluoroquinolone.. Canadian researchers behind the new study sought to confirm an already well-documented link ...
Grepafloxacin hydrochloride (trade name Raxar, Glaxo Wellcome) was an oral broad-spectrum fluoroquinolone antibacterial agent used to treat bacterial infections. Grepafloxacin was withdrawn worldwide from markets in 1999, owing to its side effect of lengthening the QT interval on the electrocardiogram, leading to cardiac events and sudden death. Grepafloxacin was used for treating exacerbations of chronic bronchitis caused by susceptible bacteria (e.g. Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Moraxella catarrhalis), community-acquired pneumonia (including those, in addition to the above germs, caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae) gonorrhea and non-gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis (for example caused by Chlamydia trachomatis or Ureaplasma urealyticum). The preparation of quinolones bearing a substituent at position 5 is complicated by the greater electrophilic character of the 8 position. One scheme for resolving the problem consists in blocking access to position 8 by first adding a ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Declining susceptibilities of gram-negative bacteria to the fluoroquinolones. T2 - Effects on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and clinical outcomes. AU - Labreche, Matthew J.. AU - Frei, Chris. PY - 2012/11/1. Y1 - 2012/11/1. N2 - Purpose. Published evidence of rising gram-negative bacterial resistance to fluoroquinolone therapy is reviewed, with a focus on the potential need for revising pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) targets in order to maintain acceptable clinical outcomes. Summary. With a more than threefold increase in fluoroquinolone use among U.S. adults since the introduction of second- and third-generation (i.e., "respiratory") fluoroquinolones 15 years ago, surveillance data indicate a decline in some gram-negative organisms susceptibility to this antimicrobial class. These trends have raised concerns that the need to attain higher organism-specific minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) may lead to worse patient outcomes, even when MIC values are below ...

Pharmacodynamic and mutant prevention properties of the fluoroquinolone pradofloxacin (PRA) were measured against a set of 17 Escherichia coli strains carrying no, one or two known mutations conferring reduced fluoroquinolone susceptibility. The strains included susceptible wild-types, isogenic constructed mutants, isogenic selected mutants and clinical isolates. The effectiveness of PRA was determined with regard to preventing the selection of resistant mutants, using static and changing concentrations of drug. Ciprofloxacin was used as a reference drug. Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) and mutant prevention concentrations (MPCs) of PRA for the susceptible wild-type strains were in the range 0.012-0.016 mg/L and 0.2-0.3 mg/L, respectively, giving a mean +/- standard deviation mutant prevention index (MPI=MPC/MIC) of 17.7 +/- 1.1. The mean MPI PRA of the 14 mutant strains was 19.2 +/- 12, and the mean MPI across all 17 strains was 18.9 +/- 10.8. In an in vitro kinetic model in which PRA ...
Qnr genes provide resistance to broad-spectrum fluoroquinolone antibiotics and can move between bacteria using horizontal gene transfer. However, the total number of qnr classes and their diversity in environmental bacterial communities is not clear. We therefore developed a novel method to identify new classes of qnr genes in fragmented metagenomic data. The method uses a hidden Markov model (HMM) to identify candidate qnr fragments which are then further classified based on their model score and sequence length. Cross-validation confirmed that the method had a high sensitivity and specificity to detect fragments from novel classes of known qnr genes, even at fragments as short as 33 amino acid residues. This makes the method applicable to many forms of nucleotide data, including sequences generated by next-generation DNA sequencers. From public sequence repositories the method classified 1733 sequence fragments (3.6 × 10-4%) as qnr, which were further clustered into 475 groups. The method ...
Limits use for acute bacterial sinusitis, acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis and uncomplicated urinary tract infections. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved safety labeling changes for a class of antibiotics, called fluoroquinolones, to enhance warnings about their association with disabling and potentially permanent side effects and to limit their use in patients with less serious bacterial infections.. "Fluoroquinolones have risks and benefits that should be considered very carefully," said Edward Cox, M.D., director of the Office of Antimicrobial Products in the FDAs Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. "Its important that both health care providers and patients are aware of both the risks and benefits of fluoroquinolones and make an informed decision about their use.". Fluoroquinolones are antibiotics that kill or stop the growth of bacteria. While these drugs are effective in treating serious bacterial infections, an FDA safety review found that both ...
Fluoroquinolones came into widespread use in African countries in the early 2000s, after patents for the first generation of these drugs expired. By that time, quinolone antibacterial agents had been used intensively worldwide and resistant lineages of many bacterial species had evolved. We sought to understand which Gram negative enteric pandemic lineages have been reported from Africa, as well as the nature and transmission of any indigenous resistant clones. A systematic review of articles indexed in the Medline and AJOL literature databases was conducted. We report on the findings of 43 eligible studies documenting local or pandemic fluoroquinolone-resistant enteric clones in sub-Sahara African countries. Most reports are of invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella and Escherichia coli lineages and there have been three reports of cholera outbreaks caused by fluoroquinolone-resistant Vibrio cholerae O1. Fluoroquinolone-resistant clones have also been reported from commensals and animal isolates but ...
Concluding comments.We validated a new method for assessing the reserpine-mediated effect on fluoroquinolone efflux that is not dependent upon fluorescence. Such a simplified assay for estimating NorA-type efflux is needed because this resistance mechanism is becoming increasingly important, and an agar screening test may not be reliable since reserpine is poorly soluble and present in agar as a suspension, not a solution.. We found the degree of growth inhibition mediated by reserpine was lessened in the new bulkier and/or more hydrophobic agents moxifloxacin (solubility, 2.4 g/100 ml), sparfloxacin (solubility, 0.11 g/100 ml), and trovafloxacin (solubility, 0.002 g/100 ml). However, the growth of organisms in the smaller, more hydrophilic drugs ciprofloxacin (solubility, 3.5 g/100 ml) and levofloxacin (solubility, 2.5 g/100 ml) was strongly inhibited by the presence of reserpine. Of the fluoroquinolones tested, ciprofloxacin has the least bulky C-7 substituent, a piperasine moiety, with ...

Todays post from naturalhealth365.com (see link below) returns to an old chestnut on this blog that remains relevant because of the increasing numbers of people ending up with nerve damage due to use of fluoroquinolone antibiotics. These really are antibiotics with a sting in the tail and it can be some time before the side effects appear but if you have an infection and are prescribed antibiotics by your doctor, check that they dont belong to the fluoroquinolone group (a list of common brand names appears in the article), especially if you already have, or are prone to neuropathy. There are always alternatives and you should seriously discuss these with your doctor. Further articles on the subject can be found by using the search button to the right of this blog. If in doubt, remember that the American FDA doesnt issue warnings aboiut drugs lightly - they certainly warn you about fluoroquinolones! ...

While these drugs are effective in treating serious bacterial infections, FDA review found that both oral and injectable fluroquinolones are associated with disabling side effects involving the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves and the central nervous system. These side effects can occur hours to weeks after exposure to fluoroquinolones and may potentially be permanent," FDA said.. The drug already has black-box warnings for its side effects and other warnings related to nervous damage, muscle weakness and fatigue.. A black box warning is the strictest warning put in the labeling of prescription drugs or drug products by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when there is reasonable evidence of an association of a serious hazard with the drug.. The fluoroquinolones which are sold in the market are velox (Moxifloxacin), Cipro (Ciprofloxacin), Factive (Gemifloxacin), Levaquin (Levofloxacin) and generic Ofloxacin.. In India, these drugs are available in their generic forms and are marketed by most ...
The blaNDM-1 (New Delhi Metallo-β-lactamase-1) gene has disseminated around the globe. NDM-1 producers are found to co-harbour resistance genes against many antimicrobials, including fluoroquinolones. The spread of large plasmids, carrying both blaNDM and plasmid-mediated fluoroquinolone resistance (PMQR) markers, is one of the main reasons for the failure of these essential antimicrobials. Enterobacteriaceae (n = 73) isolated from the blood of septicaemic neonates, admitted at a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in Kolkata, India, were identified followed by PFGE, antibiotic susceptibility testing and determination of MIC values for meropenem and ciprofloxacin. Metallo-β-lactamases and PMQRs were identified by PCR. NDM-positive isolates were studied for mutations in GyrA & ParC and for co-transmission of blaNDM and PMQR genes (aac(6′)-Ib-cr, qnrB, qnrS) through conjugation or transformation. Plasmid types, integrons, plasmid addiction systems, and genetic environment of the blaNDM gene in NDM
The emergence of multidrug resistant bacteria world wide is a serious problem, and very few new drugs are under development. The selection of resistant bacteria is affected by factors such as mutation rate, biological fitness cost and the rate of fitness compensation. This thesis is focused on how mutation rate affects resistance to fluoroquinolones and on exploring a dosing strategy that might slow resistance development. In a set of urinary tract Escherichia coli isolates MIC values above the breakpoint for the fluoroquinolones norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin carried at least three resistance-associated mutations. In these isolates the number of resistance mutations correlated with the mutation rate. During step-wise selection for decreased susceptibility to fluoroquinolones, the accumulation of mutations in E. coli was associated with an increasing biological cost both in vitro and in vivo. However, in some lineages an additional selection step for resistance was associated with a partial ...
CNS effects. Headache, dizziness, and drowsiness have been reported with all fluoroquinolones. Insomnia was reported in 3-7% of patients with ofloxacin. Severe CNS effects, including seizures, have been reported in patients receiving trovafloxacin. Seizures may develop within 3 to 4 days of therapy but resolve with drug discontinuation. Although seizures are infrequent, fluoroquinolones should be avoided in patients with a history of convulsion, cerebral trauma, or anoxia. No seizures have been reported with levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, gatifloxacin, and gemifloxacin. With the older non-fluorinated quinolones neurotoxic symptoms such as dizziness occurred in about 50% of the patients ...

The LC-MS-MS method allowed gatifloxacin quantification as low as 5.0ng/ml (R,0.99) with a sample run time of 3.5 minutes, for up to 10 hours after a single administration of 0.3% gatifloxacin to the eye.,br /, After a single topical instillation, gatifloxacin reached a high concentration in aqueous humor and the posterior tissues quickly, due to high permeability through the cornea barrier. All the ocular tissue concentrations were higher than that of the blood (Cmax: 23.5ng/ml). In particular, concentrations detected in the anterior segment are: tears (Cmax: 94880ng/g), cornea (Cmax: 7340ng/g), conjunctiva (Cmax: 3652ng/g), sclera (Cmax: 1745.8ng/g), aqeous humor (Cmax: 1310ng/ml), and iris (Cmax: 1806 ng/g). Except for the virtrous, gatifloxacin was detectable in the following tissues at 10th hour: 244.8 ng/g (retina), 148.2 ng/g (choroid) and 71.3 ng/g (lens), respectively.. ...

Later-generation fluoroquinolones (moxifloxacin, gatifloxacin) are crucial to all treatment regimens in current use for multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) (i.e. joint resistance to at least rifampicin and isoniazid) [1]. Resistance to them is known to occur in different geographical settings [2]. L. Davies Forsman and co-workers advocate for therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) as a means to help keep blood levels of fluoroquinolones within the ranges considered effective during MDR-TB treatment. They refer to reports of substantial variability in fluoroquinolone pharmacokinetics between patients, which makes it difficult to predict when sub-therapeutic levels occur, and could thus predispose to treatment failure and to the emergence of resistant strains. The authors maintain that TDM employing a dried blood spot technique and newer microbroth dilution plate-based methods to test for minimum inhibitory concentration (MICs) now make it possible for clinicians in low-resource settings to ...
To assess the implication of the genetic background of Escherichia coli strains in the emergence of extended-spectrum-Beta -lactamases (ESBL), 55 TEM-, 52 CTX-M-, and 22 SHV-type ESBL-producing clinical isolates involved in various extraintestinal infections or colonization were studied in terms of phylogenetic group, virulence factor (VF) content (pap, sfa/foc, hly, and aer genes), and fluoroquinolone resistance. A factorial analysis of correspondence showed that SHV type, and to a lesser extent TEM type, were preferentially observed in B2 phylogenetic group strains that exhibited numerous VFs but were fluoroquinolone-susceptible, whereas the newly emerged CTX-M type was associated with the D phylogenetic group strains that lacked VF but were fluoroquinolone-resistant. Thus, the emergence of ESBL-producing E. coli seems to be the result of complex interactions between the type of ESBL, genetic background of the strain, and selective pressures in ecologic niches ...
Recent in vivo and in vitro studies indicate that the pathologic mechanism with fluoroquinolones may be related to significant increases of matrix-degrading proteolytic activity, inhibitory effects on cell metabolism, as well as the degenerative and ultrastructural cell changes with increased levels and interferences in the regulative pathways of several cytokines. [22-26] The clinical significance of these findings revolve around two main questions: how is the expression of these matrix metalloproteinase increased after the application of topical fluoroquinolone eye drops ...
Previous experience with antimicrobial resistance has emphasized the importance of appropriate stewardship of these pharmacotherapeutic agents. The introduction of fluoroquinolones provided potent new drugs directed primarily against gram-negative pathogens, while the newer members of this class demonstrate more activity against gram-positive species, including Streptococcus pneumoniae. Although these agents are clinically effective against a broad range of infectious agents, emergence of resistance and associated clinical failures have prompted reexamination of their use. Appropriate use revolves around two key objectives: 1) only prescribing antimicrobial therapy when it is beneficial and 2) using the agents with optimal activity against the expected pathogens. Pharmacodynamic principles and properties can be applied to achieve the latter objective when prescribing agents belonging to the fluoroquinolone class. A focused approach emphasizing "correct-spectrum" coverage may reduce development ...
