Ninety five isolates of Salmonella enterica belonging to 5 serotypes- S. Typhimurium, S. Enteritidis, S. Gallinarum, S. Paratyphi B and S. Bareilly were obtained with an overall prevalence rate of 14.40 per cent. S. Typhimurium isolates were distributed among four phages- DT003, DT004, DT096 and DT193 and all the S. Enteritidis isolates belonged to a single phage type, PT13a/7. Interspecies sharing of the phages was observed. Norfloxacin, enrofloxacin, gentamycin and ciprofloxacin were most effective, whereas, doxycycline, ampicillin, amoxycillin and tetracycline were relatively less effective.

Six patients with acute peritonitis undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis for end-stage renal failure received an 800 mg loading dose of pefloxacin mesylate orally followed by 400 mg twice daily orally for 10 or 21 days. Plasma and dialysate levels of both pefloxacin and its metabolites were measured. Plasma levels in excess of the MIC for all infective bacteria were achieved within 90 min and in dialysate within 4 h. No significant accumulation of pefloxacin or its metabolite norfloxacin was noted. However, both serum and dialysate levels of the metabolite pefloxacin N-oxide rose continuously during treatment. Plasma and dialysate levels of all three agents fell rapidly during the five days after treatment had stopped. No major side effects were observed, although two patients developed Achilles tendonitis.

In a prospective controlled study we evaluated the effect of early norfloxacin treatment on the duration of salmonella carriage after acute salmonellosis. The study was carried out during an outbreak of Salmonella typhimurium infection at a military base. 23 patients received norfloxacin 400 mg twice daily for 7 days while 29 patients served as untreated controls. A patient was considered to have ceased being a carrier on the date of the first of 3 negative consecutive cultures. Four weeks after diagnosis 30% of the treated patients and 31% in the control group were still carriers. The corresponding figures after 8 and 12 weeks were 17 and 3% and 4 and 0%, respectively. Thus, one week of norfloxacin treatment instituted at an early stage of salmonellosis did not shorten the duration of carriage.

The MIC of pefloxacin against all the strains (3122) isolated in an intensive care unit during 18 months was studied. The MIC of pefloxacin was estimated by standard agar diffusion method in Mueller-Hinton agar. All the strains with a MIC lower than 2 mg/l were considered as sensitive, between 2 and 4 mg/l as "intermediary" and over 4 mg/l as resistant. Geometrical means of MICs were calculated for each month and for different species. The study continued for 18 months from the introduction of the drug which was in widespread and constant use as a first-choice antibiotic. No significant increase was detected in the incidence of resistant strains during the study; on the other hand, small, limited clusters of resistant strains were observed during minor nosocomial epidemics. The general features of quinolone activity, the spectrum of this new quinolone and the slow evolution of the bacterial population are discussed.

All efflux pumps except bmeB9 were expressed in the wild-type parental strain. Susceptibility to beta-lactams, fluoroquinolones, ethidium bromide, SDS and triclosan was increased in ADB77DeltabmeB3 (up to 3-fold) and ADB77DeltabmeB1DeltabmeB3DeltabmeB12 (up to 5-fold). Expression of bmeB9 was increased and that of bmeB11 repressed in the latter deletant. A quadruple deletant (ADB77DeltabmeB1DeltabmeB3DeltabmeB12DeltabmeB15) had similar changes as well as a 2-fold increase in expression of bmeB16 and norfloxacin resistance. Expression of bmeB3 was increased in two triple deletants ADB77DeltabmeB1DeltabmeB12DeltabmeB15-type I (2-fold) and ADB77DeltabmeB1DeltabmeB12DeltabmeB15-type II (5.8-fold). Antimicrobial MICs were also increased in the latter deletant; ampicillin (2.6-fold), cefoperazone (3.4-fold), cefoxitin (1.8-fold), tetracycline (36.4-fold), SDS (1.7-fold) and triclosan (2-fold).

Campylobacter species had the highest isolation rate (9.3%) of all the bacterial and parasitic enteric pathogens which were sought in the stool specimens. Children less than three years old were those most frequently infected with Campylobacter species. Campylobacter jejuni was the commonest Campylobacter species isolated. All the Campylobacter isolates were sensitive to chloramphenicol and norfloxacin. A significant number of the isolates (14.8%) showed multidrug resistance to erythromycin, tetracycline and gentamicin.

In a standardized experimental model 51 antimicrobial agents were coincubated with polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PNG) of healthy human donors and then screened for a modulation of chemiluminescence (CL) reaction during zymosan phagocytosis. Initial studies with low, therapeutic and high, nontherapeutic concentrations showed CL suppression by amoxicillin, tetracycline, doxycycline, trimethoprim, sulfamethoxazol, clindamycin, fusidic acid, rifampicin, isoniazid and amphotericin B, yet stimulation of CL reaction by ceftriaxone, enoxacin, and norfloxacin. Dose-effect relationships for most of these substances showed a sigmoid-like graph with little influence upon most of the therapeutic range, but markedly increasing suppression (or stimulation) from a certain 'threshold' concentration. For certain substances this curve might indicate a narrowed therapeutic range of antimicrobial chemotherapy due to impairment of phagocytic functions.

Interim analysis was performed because of the low recruitment rate, and a significantly lower infection rate than expected meant that the trial was discontinued. There was one symptomatic UTI in the placebo group (0.82%) and one in the norfloxacin group (0.89%). The UTI in the placebo group was de novo, while the infection in the norfloxacin group was secondary to pre-FC bacteriuria. There was no difference in the infection rates in the two groups. The overall infection rate (de novo and secondary to existing bacteruria) after FC was 0.85%.

The bacterial diseases of silkworms cause significant reductions in sericulture and result in huge economic loss. This study aimed to identify and characterize a pathogen from diseased silkworm. SW7-1, a pathogenic bacterial strain, was isolated from the diseased silkworm. The strain was identified on the basis of its bacteriological properties and 16S rRNA gene sequence. The colony was round, slightly convex, opaque, dry, and milky on a nutrient agar medium, the colony also exhibited jagged edges. SW7-1 was Gram-positive, without parasporal crystal, and 0.8-1.2 by 2.6-3.4 µm in length, resembling long rods with rounded ends. The strain was positive to most of the physiological biochemical tests used in this study. The strain could utilize glucose, sucrose, and maltose. The results of its 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that SW7-1 shared the highest sequence identity (>99%) with Bacillus cereus strain 14. The bacterial strain was highly susceptible to gentamycin, streptomycin, erythromycin, norfloxacin, and ofloxacin and moderately susceptible to tetracycline and rifampicin. It exhibited resistance to other antibiotics. SW7-1 had hemolytic activity and could produce extracellular casease, lipase, and amylase. SW7-1 could reproduce septicemia-like symptoms with high mortality rate when re-fed to healthy silkworm. .The median lethal concentration (LC50) was 5.45 × 10(4) cfu/ml. Thus, SW7-1 was identified as B. cereus, which is a pathogen for silkworm and human infections are possible.

Among the 156 eyes studied, 36 were from patients who had undergone either bilateral surgery or more than one surgery in the same eye. Only the first eyes of the 120 patients that underwent initial ocular surgery were included in our analysis. Of these 120 eyes, 21 (18%) showed no bacterial growth. Of the 143 bacterial strains isolated from the remaining 99 eyes, 112 (78%) were coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS). Among the CNS, greater than 90% were susceptible to cefotaxime, levofloxacin, imipenem, meropenem, vancomycin, and each of the aminoglycosides except neomycin. Between 70% and 90% of the CNS were susceptible to cefazolin, neomycin, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, norfloxacin, and chloramphenicol. Less than 70% of the isolated CNS were sensitive to the penicillin analogues, ceftazidime, erythromycin, and tetracycline.

Oral norfloxacin prevented Gram-negative bacilluria in female patients with hip fractures, who needed medium-term transurethral catheterization. This was shown in a placebo-controlled double-blind study of 34 patients. Seventeen of these received a suspension containing 200 mg norfloxacin and 500 mg amphotericin B, twice daily. In the placebo group, six cases of Gram-negative bacilluria had occurred by day 7, as compared with no cases during a median time of catheterization of 23 days in the group on medication. Bacteriuria, either by Gram-positive cocci or by Gram-negative bacilli, was observed in 50% of patients on placebo by day 7; in the treatment group this was the case by day 17 (P less than 0.001). Subsequent bacteriuria with Gram-positive cocci was eliminated by nitrofurantoin (50 mg qid) within four days. Norfloxacin is very suitable for the prevention of Gram-negative bacilluria, because it decontaminates Gram-negative bacilli from the bowel, reaches high concentrations in urine and rarely produces resistant variants.

Effects of various antimicrobials on in vitro Shiga toxin production and release by Shigella dysenteriae serotype 1 was investigated in this study with particular reference to the role of outer membrane vesicles in toxin release by the organism. Five antimicrobials, namely nalidixic acid, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, fosfomycin and mitomycin C, were chosen for the study and the toxin titre was measured by the reverse passive latex agglutination (RPLA) method using an available kit. Only mitomycin C was found to induce production of Shiga toxin in the bacteria and its release by outer membrane vesicles. The highest titre of toxin was obtained in vesicle fraction suggesting that the vesicles play an important role in the release of Shiga toxin from periplasmic space by the organism.

Cyclothialidine is a new DNA gyrase inhibitor isolated from Streptomyces filipinensis NR0484. Structurally, it belongs to a new class of natural products containing a unique 12-membered lactone ring that is partly integrated into a pentapeptide chain. Cyclothialidine was found to be one of the most active of all the DNA gyrase inhibitors tested in the DNA supercoiling reaction of Escherichia coli DNA gyrase; 50% inhibitory concentrations (in micrograms per milliliter) of 0.03 (cyclothialidine), 0.06 (novobiocin), 0.06 (coumermycin A1), 0.66 (norfloxacin), 0.88 (ciprofloxacin), and 26 (nalidixic acid) were found. In addition, DNA gyrases from gram-positive species were inhibited equally as well as DNA gyrase from E. coli. Cyclothialidine also inhibited the in vitro DNA replication directed from oriC of E. coli. Among the bacterial species tested, only Eubacterium spp. were inhibited by cyclothialidine, suggesting that it can enter the cells of Eubacterium and exert antibacterial activity through interference with the DNA gyrase within the cells, although its penetration into most bacterial cells appears to be poor. These results provide a basis for cyclothialidine to be a lead structure for novel antibacterial agents with DNA gyrase inhibitory activities.

In Vietnam's coastal wetlands, fluoroquinolones, a widely used class of antibiotics in shrimp farming, are frequently detected in sediments of former shrimp farms. This phenomenon could lead to negative impacts on the aquatic ecosystem, since the antibiotic residues could induce changes in the microorganism communities of the water body. The potential of native wetland plants (Acrostichum aureum L. and Rhizophora apiculata Blume Fl. Javae) for phytoremediation of fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin) was investigated. The half-life for each antibiotic was estimated at approximately 10 days in the planted sediment. With respect to the accumulation of ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin in plants, these antibiotics were found mainly in roots. Antibiotic translocation from root to stem and leaves occurred at a low rate. The results showed that A. aureum and R. apiculata can be valuable for the phytoremediation of antibiotic-contaminated sediments. Additionally, the initialfindings of the presence of resistant bacteria indicated that bacteria could play a role in facilitating the phytodegradation.

Sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS) can greatly enhance the emission intensity of the weak chemiluminescence reaction of Ce (IV) with norfloxacin (NFLX) in acid medium. Based on this phenomenon, a simple and rapid new method for the continuous determination of norfloxacin was developed. The calibration graph is linear for 7.78 x 10(-8) -5.82 x 10(-6) g x mL(-1), the detection limit (3sigma) is 1.57 x 10(-8) g x mL(-1), and the relative standard deviation (n = 10, c = 1.94 x 10(-6) g x mL(-1)) is 1.7%. The method was successfully applied to the determination of norfloxacin in capsules. Additionally, the system's mechanism was discussed.

Recent observations have suggested that classic antibiotics kill bacteria by stimulating the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). If true, this notion might guide new strategies to improve antibiotic efficacy. In this study, the model was directly tested. Contrary to the hypothesis, antibiotic treatment did not accelerate the formation of hydrogen peroxide in Escherichia coli and did not elevate intracellular free iron, an essential reactant for the production of lethal damage. Lethality persisted in the absence of oxygen, and DNA repair mutants were not hypersensitive, undermining the idea that toxicity arose from oxidative DNA lesions. We conclude that these antibiotic exposures did not produce ROS and that lethality more likely resulted from the direct inhibition of cell-wall assembly, protein synthesis, and DNA replication.

The rats were randomly divided into high altitude group and plain group. Blood gas and biochemical analysis showed that the physiological parameters significantly changed at high altitude. The mRNA and protein expression of MRP2 in high altitude group were higher than plain group in rat small intestine and kidney, while was reduced in rat liver. The AUC, Ka and Cmax of norfloxacin were significantly reduced in high altitude group (p<0.05). However, the MRT, CL, t1/2 and Vd were significantly increased (p<0.05).

A method for the quantitative determination of humanuse fluoroquinolone antibacterial agents (FQs) ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin in sewage sludge and sludge-treated soil samples was developed. The accelerated solvent extraction was optimized with regard to solvents and operational parameters, such as temperature, pressure, and extraction time. A 50 mM aqueous phosphoric acid/ acetonitrile mixture (1:1) was found to be optimum in combination with an extraction temperature of 100 degrees C at 100 bar, during 60 and 90 min for sewage sludge and sludge-treated soil samples, respectively. A cleanup step using solid-phase extraction substantially improved the selectivity of the method. Overall recovery rates for FQs ranged from 82 to 94% for sewage sludge and from 75 to 92% for sludge-treated soil, with relative standard deviations between 8 and 11%. Limits of quantification were 0.45 and 0.18 mg/kg of dry matter for sewage sludge and sludge-treated soils, respectively. The presented method was successfully applied to untreated and anaerobically digested sewage sludges and sludge-treated soils. Ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin were determined in sewage sludges from several wastewater treatment plants with concentrations ranging from 1.40 to 2.42 mg/kg of dry matter. Therefore, contrary to what may be expected for human-use pharmaceuticals, FQs may reach the terrestrial environment as indicated by the occurrence of FQs in topsoil samples from experimental fields, to which sewage sludge had been applied.

Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. capri is a causative agent of contagious agalactia in goats. In this study, M. mycoides subsp. capri mutants were selected for resistance to fluoroquinolones (norfloxacin, enrofloxacin and ciprofloxacin) by serial passes in broth with increasing concentrations of antibiotic. Mutations conferring cross-resistance to the three fluoroquinolones were found in the quinolone resistance determining regions of the four genes encoding DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV. Different mutations in the DNA gyrase GyrA subunit suggest a different mechanism of inhibition between norfloxacin and the other tested fluoroquinolones. The presence of an adenosine triphosphate-dependent efflux system was suggested through the use of the inhibitor orthovanadate.

The Sunn pest, Eurygaster integriceps Puton (Hemiptera: Scutelleridae), is the most important pest of wheat and barley in wide areas of the world. Different aspects of the insect's life history have been studied, but to date nothing is known about their microbial symbionts. Here, the contribution of symbiotic bacteria to the fitness of the bug was investigated by combining two different approaches to manipulate the host's microbial community: the supplementation of antibiotics into the insects' diet and egg surface sterilization. First, bacteria cultured from gut homogenates were subjected to antibiotic screening tests using 20 different antibiotics. Norfloxacin was the most effective antibiotic, with the greatest inhibition zone among all antibiotics tested. Feeding norfloxacin to adult E. integriceps individuals significantly impaired growth and development of the offspring in a dose-dependent manner, i.e., higher antibiotic doses increased the negative effects on nymphal growth and development. Total developmental time from first nymphal instars to adult emergence in control animals was 30.1 days, but when adults had been offered diets with 10, 20, and 30 µg antibiotic per mg diet, the offspring's developmental time was prolonged to 32.8, 34.0, and 34.8 days, respectively. In the highest two doses of norfloxacin, all of the nymphs died before reaching the fifth buy noroxin nymphal instar. Similar results as for the antibiotic treatment were obtained when egg surface sterilization was used to manipulate the microbial community of E. integriceps. These results indicate that bacterial symbionts play a crucial role in the successful development of the host.

We compared the activity of norfloxacin (MK-0366), a new orally absorbable derivative of naladixic acid, with those of other antipseudomonal buy noroxin agents against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Norfloxacin was the most active against both gentamicin-susceptible and gentamicin-resistant strains, having 90% minimal inhibitory concentrations of 2 and 8 micrograms/ml, respectively. This excellent in vitro activity may make norfloxacin effective for oral therapy of P. aeruginosa urinary tract infections.

Bacteriological analysis of buy noroxin 1,551 stool/rectal swabs from all age groups of diarrhea patients of different hospitals of Orissa from January 2004 to December 2006 was carried out using standard procedures. Among all enteropathogens isolated in 886 culture-positive samples, Escherichia coli constituted 75.5%, including 13.2% pathogenic E. coli; Vibrio cholerae O1 constituted 17.3%; V. cholerae O139, 1%; Shigella spp., 4.5% (Shigella flexneri type 6, 2.9%, S. dysenteriae type I, 0.7%, S. sonnei, 0.6%, and S. boydii, 0.3%); Salmonella spp., 0.7%; and Aeromonas spp., only 2.0%. The isolation of bacterial enteropathogens was highest during July, 2005, followed by September, 2006. The prevalence of shigellosis in this region was relatively low. Cholera cases were more frequent during the rainy seasons. The dominance of V. cholerae O1 Inaba over Ogawa serotypes was observed in 2005, whereas this trend was reversed in 2006. The resistance profile of V. cholerae O1 was co-trimoxazole (Co), furazolidone (Fr), and nalidixic acid (Na); for Aeromonas spp., it was ampicillin (A), Fr, ciprofloxacin (Cf), Na, norfloxacin (Nx), and Co. Pathogenic E. coli strains were resistant to A, Fr, Co, streptomycin (S), Cf, Na, Nx, and neomycin (N); Shigella spp. were resistant to Fr, Na, Co, and S; and Salmonella spp. were resistant to A and Fr. Active surveillance should be continued among diarrhea patients to look for different enteropathogens and to define the shifting antibiogram patterns in this region.

The occurrence of 19 antibiotics (sulfonamide, fluoroquinolone, tetracycline and macrolide) was studied in surface water and groundwater samples collected from Shahu County of Jianghan Plain, central China, in autumn (dry season) and spring (wet season). In autumn, chlorotetracycline, doxycycline and enrofloxacin were the three antibiotics with the highest concentrations and high relevance ratios in all of the water samples. The concentration of chlorotetracycline was greatest in surface water at 122.3 n gL(-1) and was as high as 86.6 ng L(-1) in groundwater, which are among the highest values reported worldwide. In spring, tetracycline was found to be more than 100 ng L(-1) in groundwater and surface water, which also contained high concentrations of ofloxacin (135.1 ng L(-1)), norfloxacin (134.2 ng L(-1)) and erythromycin dehydrate (381.5 ng L(-1)). Most of the SMs were observed at higher detection frequencies in spring than in autumn, which can be ascribed to surface runoff by rain water during the wet season (spring). The average concentrations of compounds in the fluoroquinolone and tetracycline categories were far higher than those in the sulfonamide buy noroxin and macrolide categories, which had concentrations of less than 16 ng L(-1) in groundwater (except erythromycin dehydrate), while macrolides were found in all samples, except erythromycin dehydrate. The main antibiotics present in groundwater were also the dominant compounds found in surface water, with correlation coefficients of 0.93 and 0.97 in autumn and spring, respectively, indicating the potential contamination of groundwater by the infiltration of contaminated surface water.

The suppression of alimentary canal flora by the three quinolones nalidixic acid, ciprofloxacin and pefloxacin was investigated in fifteen volunteers. They received the three quinolone compounds in tablet form both uncoated and colon-coated. Escherichia coli suppression was poor under nalidixic acid, but complete under ciprofloxacin and pefloxacin for both administration forms. The indigenous anaerobic flora contributing to the control of aerobic Streptococcus faecalis and Candida albicans in the intestines ('colonization resistance') was not affected by nalidixic acid and pefloxacin, and only slightly by ciprofloxacin. Out of the three quinolone compounds, only colon-coated pefloxacin was buy noroxin associated with a considerable absorption rate at colonic level. Using these criteria of successful Escherichia coli clearing from the intestinal canal--left the indigenous flora more or less intact (in a 'selective' way)--and a good absorption rate, pefloxacin is found to be superior to ciprofloxacin and nalidixic acid. These results suggest that a colon-coated tablet with a low dose of pefloxacin is a promising administration form in the therapy of recurrent urinary tract infections and diarrhoeal diseases and in the prevention of gut colonization in immunocompromised hosts.

In order to clarify the in vivo effect of the new quinolones in the urinary tract, we investigated the antimicrobial activities against Escherichia coli in the human urine. Human urine was prepared from a normal volunteer. After cations were removed by chelating resin, human urine was supplemented with 50, 100, or 500 micrograms of Mg2+ per ml using MgCl2 or 10, 50, or 150 micrograms of Ca2+ per ml using CaCl2. The pH of human urine was adjusted to 5.5, 7.0, or 8.0 with HCl or NaOH. Four clinical isolates of E. coli and E. coli NIHJ JC-2 were used. And antimicrobial activities of the new quinolones (norfloxacin, enoxacin, ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin) against these strains were measured using various urines as buy noroxin mediums. Antimicrobial activities of the new quinolones were reduced in the presence of high concentration of magnesium or low pH of urine. However, there was no influence of calcium concentration of urine on antimicrobial activities of the new quinolones. From these results, the component of the urine should be checked in the treatment of the patients with urinary tract infection.

Significantly increased occurrence of diarrhoea was observed in June 2009 in two subdivisions namely Haldia and Egra (OR 1.6 and 1.3 respectively; 95% CI 1.52-1.65 and 1.21-1.32 P<0.001) considering 2007 as baseline. Vibrio cholerae grew from 54 per cent of the stool samples (21/39; 17 V. cholerae buy noroxin O1-Ogawa and 4 non-O1-non-O139), confirming a community outbreak of cholera. Shigella flexneri 3a was isolated from 5 per cent stool specimens. Increased rate of admission in treatment centres due to diarrhoea in the whole district coincided with the formation of cyclone and showed over two-fold rise compared to the admission recorded 6 days ago. Haldia subdivision had the highest attack rate of 9 per 1000 in the month of June, 2009 whereas for the whole district it was 5 per 1000 in the same month. All the isolates of V. cholerae were resistant to ampicillin and furazolidone and sensitive to norfloxacin and azithromycin.

The in vitro and in vivo antibacterial activities of KB-5246, a tetracyclic quinolone, were compared with those of ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, and norfloxacin. KB-5246 Norvasc Dose demonstrated a broad antibacterial spectrum. The in vitro activity of KB-5246 against gram-negative bacteria was higher than that of ofloxacin or norfloxacin and was comparable to that of ciprofloxacin. KB-5246 demonstrated the greatest activity against gram-positive bacteria of the four agents tested. Among Streptococcus pyogenes strains resistant to 1.56 micrograms of norfloxacin per ml, there were 26 strains susceptible to 0.2 micrograms of KB-5246 per ml. Similarly, among the Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis strains resistant to 3.13 micrograms of norfloxacin per ml, there were 23 S. aureus and 11 S. epidermidis strains susceptible to 0.39 micrograms of KB-5246 per ml. Among the Streptococcus pneumoniae and Enterococcus faecalis strains resistant to 12.5 micrograms of norfloxacin per ml, there were 5 S. pneumoniae and 10 E. faecalis strains susceptible to 0.39 micrograms of KB-5246 per ml. KB-5246 had bactericidal activity at the MIC. KB-5246 demonstrated excellent antibacterial activity against various systemic infections in mice. After oral administration, KB-5246 was as active as ofloxacin and about two times more active than norfloxacin.

Donovanosis is a predominantly tropical cause of genital ulcer occurring chiefly in small endemic foci in all continents except Europe. Diagnosis requires the careful collection, staining and examination of smears or biopsies of characteristic genital Imdur Missed Dose and, occasionally, extragenital lesions for demonstration of the pathognomonic Donovan bodies (Calymmatobacterium granulomatis) within histiocytes. Successful isolation of C. granulomatis has rarely proved feasible, the last report being in 1962. Donovanosis has a characteristic histopathological picture which occasionally simulates epithelioma. The antibiotics reported as showing good activity in donovanosis are those with good activity against gram negative bacilli and whose lipid solubility ensures good intracellular penetration. They include streptomycin, chloramphenicol, erythromycin, lincomycin, cotrimoxazole and the tetracyclines. More recently, good results have been reported with norfloxacin and thiamphenicol. The treatment of donovanosis in pregnant women and patients with AIDS poses special problems. Complications of donovanosis such as elephantiasis, stricture and pelvic abscess may require surgery. Contacts should be traced for examination but only treated if lesions are found.

Fluoroquinolone toxicity on cartilages and tendons has been well known since 1983. Tendon inflammation or rupture has been described. Achilles tendon rupture is the most frequent complication but many other sites of tendon injuries have been reported. This article presents a case of rupture of extensor tendons of the hand in an elderly woman treated by fluoroquinolones. As far as we know, this site of tendon lesion has never been previously described. Histological examination of tendon injuries was possible after surgical treatment. Histological structures were similar to the classical description but had specific features. Like other authors, we think that the mechanism of the disease involves vascular disorders Nexium Generic Cost as well as direct toxicity. The histological lesions seem to be different in chronic and acute forms.

In Escherichia coli the frequency of spontaneous single-step mutation to high levels of resistance to the newer 4-quinolone agent norfloxacin was confirmed to be over 300-fold lower than that to the older agent nalidixic acid. Serial passage on incremental concentrations of drug was necessary to produce mutants highly resistant to norfloxacin. Genetic analysis of one such highly resistant strain identified two mutations conferring drug resistance. One mutation, nfxA, mapped around 48 min on the E. coli genetic map and was shown to be an allele of gyrA by studies demonstrating an increased drug resistance of DNA gyrase reconstituted with the gyrase A subunit isolated from the mutant strain. These findings also identified the DNA gyrase A subunit as a target of norfloxacin. The second mutation, nfxB, mapped between 20 and 22 min was associated with additional resistances to tetracycline, chloramphenicol, and cefoxitin and with decreases in outer membrane porin protein OmpF. The nfxA and nfxB mutations together accounted for most, but not all, of the norfloxacin resistance phenotype of this strain.

Protegrin-1 (PG-1) is a cysteine-rich, 18-residue beta-sheet peptide isolated from porcine leukocytes with antimicrobial activity against a broad range of microorganisms. The MICs of PG-1 against representative gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria ranged from 0.12 to 2 microg/ml. At these levels, PG-1 was rapidly bactericidal in vitro, reducing the number of viable CFU of either methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) or Pseudomonas aeruginosa by more than three log units in less than 15 min. Resistance to PG-1 did not develop after 11 subculturings of P. aeruginosa or 18 subcultures of MRSA in Mueller-Hinton broth containing PG-1 at one-half the MIC. Under similar conditions of serial passage, the MICs of norfloxacin and gentamicin against P. aeruginosa increased 10 and 190 times, respectively. Similarly, the MIC of norfloxacin against MRSA increased 85 times. Immunocompetent mice inoculated intraperitoneally (i.p.) with P. aeruginosa or S. aureus exhibited 93 to 100% mortality in the vehicle control group compared with 0 to 27% mortality in animals that received a single i.p. injection of PG-1 (0.5 mg/kg of body weight). Mice inoculated with S. aureus by intravenous (i.v.) injection and dosed 0 to 60 min later with a single i.v. injection of PG-1 (5 mg/kg) had a mortality of 7 to 33%, compared to a mortality of 73 to 93% in the vehicle controls. In leukopenic mice inoculated i.v. with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, mortality was 87% in the vehicle control group and 33% in animals that received a single i.v. injection of PG-1 (2.5 mg/kg). Taken together, these data indicate that PG-1 has potential for use as an antimicrobial agent in the treatment of local or systemic infections caused by clinically relevant pathogens.

These studies demonstrate that introduction of O-benzylmoiety on oxime group of N-(2-oxyimino) piperazinyl quinolone series changes the biological profile of piperazinyl quinolones from antibacterial to cytotoxic activity. As can be deduced from these data, O-benzyl functionalized N-(2-oxyiminoethyl) piperazinyl quinolones have excellent potential as a new class of cytotoxic agents.

Bacterial resistance to quinolones is essentially the result of mutations on several genes involved in the synthesis of DNA-gyrase or in proteins of the cellular envelope. A single mutational event may lead to complete resistance to older quinolones, but clinical resistance to newer quinolones such as norfloxacin requires two or more mutations. Prevention of resistance to norfloxacin requires prevention of the strains carrying 'first mutations' (by a controlled use of older quinolones) and the early detection of such strains. If microbiologic and pharmacologic data are taken into account at the same time, the incidence of norfloxacin-resistant strains in urinary tract infections will remain insignificant.

Water samples were collected from 19 sampling sites along the Huangpu River in June and December 2009. The occurrence, distribution and seasonal variation of 22 antibiotics, including four tetracyclines, three chloramphenicols, two macrolides, six fluoroquinolones, six sulfonamides and trimethoprim were investigated. It was found that all 19 sampling sites were contaminated by antibiotics. Four antibiotics (sulfamerazine, norfloxacin, fleroxacin and sarafloxacin) were not detected. The detection frequencies of the other 18 antibiotics were in the range of 5.3-100%. The median concentrations of the detected antibiotics ranged from quantification limits to 36.71 ng L(-1) (tetracycline) in June and to 313.44 ng L(-1) (sulfamethazine) in December. The number of detected antibiotics and the overall antibiotic concentrations were higher in December than in June due to the different river flow conditions. Different dominant antibiotics were observed for each group of antibiotics between June and December. Higher total concentrations of veterinary antibiotics such as tetracyclines were observed in suburban sampling sites than in urban sites, indicating the role of livestock and agricultural activities as an important source of antibiotic contamination.
