Empiric initial antibiotic therapy of bacterial infections is based primarily upon the susceptibility of the most common causative pathogens. The purpose of this study was to provide susceptibility data on six bacterial species known to cause ear, nose and throat (ENT) infections. A total of 1066 isolates collected during a nationwide laboratory-based surveillance study were analysed. All Streptococcus pyogenes isolates were penicillin (PEN)-susceptible, indicating that natural penicillins can still be recommended as the first-line treatment for group A streptococcal tonsillopharyngitis...

BACKGROUND: Since pregnant women are considerably underrepresented in clinical trials, information on optimal dosing in pregnancy is widely lacking. Physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling may provide a method for predicting pharmacokinetic changes in pregnancy to guide subsequent in vivo pharmacokinetic trials in pregnant women, minimizing associated risks. OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to build and verify a population PBPK model that predicts the maternal pharmacokinetics of three predominantly renally cleared drugs (namely cefazolin, cefuroxime, and cefradine) at different stages of pregnancy...

Lyme disease is a most common vector-borne disease in the US. Although the majority of Lyme patients can be cured with the standard two- to four-week antibiotic treatment, at least 10%-20% of patients continue to suffer from prolonged post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS). While the cause for this is unclear, one possibility is that persisting organisms are not killed by current Lyme antibiotics. In our previous studies, we screened an FDA drug library and an NCI compound library on B. burgdorferi and found some drug hits including sulfa drugs as having good activity against B...

INTRODUCTION: The clinical features of UTI in young children may not localize to the urinary tract and closely resemble other febrile illnesses. In malaria endemic areas, a child presenting with fever is often treated presumptively for malaria without investigation for UTI. Delayed or inadequate treatment of UTI increases the risk of bacteremia and renal scarring in young children and subsequently complications as hypertension and end stage renal disease in adulthood. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was carried out in a hospital in western Kenya...

Free-living raptors (birds of prey) can act as reservoirs of potentially zoonotic agents but they also can be affected by microorganisms as target hosts. In this retrospective study, microbiological results (n=663) and antibiotic sensitivity profiles (n=108) of bacterial isolates were analyzed from diseased free-living raptors. Sixty-nine percent of cases (n=457) yielded bacteria: 58% were in pure culture and 42% were of different species. Remarkably, samples from necropsies (47%) had higher percentage of pure isolations than those obtained from clinical (31%) samples (p<0...

BACKGROUND: The administration of β-lactam antibiotics in continuous infusion could let optimize the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic parameters, especially in the treatment of serious bacterial infections. In this context, and also due to variability in their plasmatic concentrations, therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) may be useful to optimize dosing and, therefore, be useful for the clinicians. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We developed and validated a measurement procedure based on ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry for simultaneous measurement of amoxicillin, ampicillin, cloxacillin, piperacillin, cefepime, ceftazidime, cefuroxime, aztreonam and meropenem concentrations in plasma...
