Fluoroquinolone-containing regimens have been suggested as an alternate to standard triple therapy for the treatment of Helicobacter pylori infections. To determine the relationship between fluoroquinolone resistance and mutations of GyrA and GyrB in H. pylori, we exchanged the mutations at positions 87 and 91 of GyrA among fluoroquinolone-resistant clinical isolates. GyrB of a strain with no mutations in GyrA was also analyzed to identify mechanisms of resistance to norfloxacin.

The fluoroquinolone antibacterial agent fleroxacin has a broad spectrum of in vitro activity which encompasses most Gram-negative species (particularly Enterobacteriaceae) and a number of Gram-positive organisms, including methicillin-sensitive staphylococci. It is available as oral and intravenous formulations. In clinical trials, fleroxacin has been evaluated in the treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (single or multiple once-daily oral doses of 200 or 400mg), gonorrhoea and chancroid (single oral doses of 200 or 400mg), complicated urinary tract, nonpneumococcal lower respiratory tract and skin and soft tissue infections and typhoid fever (multiple once-daily oral or intravenous regimens, usually 400 mg/day), bacterial enteritis, and traveller's diarrhoea (single or multiple once-daily oral doses of 400mg). Bacteriological cure rates were generally around 90% or higher in complicated and uncomplicated urinary tract infections, uncomplicated gonorrhoea (approximately 100%), pyelonephritis, bacterial enteritis and typhoid fever, and exceeded 80% in lower respiratory tract, and skin and soft tissue infections and chancroid. These cure rates were similar to, or better than, those achieved with standard comparator antibacterial agents such as penicillins, cephalosporins, cotrimoxazole, or other quinolones. Fleroxacin 400mg once daily also achieved bacteriological cure in approximately 80% of patients with bone and joint infections in preliminary studies. In Japanese studies using a lower dosage of 200 or 300 mg/day, fleroxacin was reported to be bacteriologically effective in a range of infections, including urinary tract and upper and lower respiratory tract infections. Fleroxacin has a relatively long elimination half-life, which allows once-daily administration, and it appears to have less propensity for interactions with other medications in comparison to many other fluoroquinolones. Its tolerability profile is typical of this class of compound, with adverse events mostly relating to the gastrointestinal tract, CNS, and skin and appendages (including phototoxicity). Recent pooled tolerability data from worldwide clinical trials indicate that adverse events are reported by approximately 27% of patients receiving 200 mg/day orally or 400 mg/day orally or intravenously, and 17% of those receiving a single oral dose of 400mg. These exceed incidences reported for established fluoroquinolones, possibly indicating recent trends towards increased rates of reported adverse effects with these agents. However, in direct comparative studies with twice-daily fluoroquinolones, fleroxacin 400mg once daily produced a similar incidence of adverse effects to ofloxacin 800 mg/day and a slightly higher incidence than ciprofloxacin 1000 mg/day, while fleroxacin 200mg once daily produced a similar incidence to norfloxacin 800 mg/day.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

Between the end of November 1996 and the beginning of March 1997, there was an outbreak of Escherichia coli O26:H11 infection in Asahikawa. The strain produced only verotoxin type 1. The minimal inhibitory concentrations (microgram/ml) of the strain under aerobic condition and those of anaerobic were as follows: chloramphenicol (1.56, 0.78), minocycline (12.5, 3.13), kanamycin (3.13, 25), ampicillin (> 100, > 100), fosfomycin (12.5, 1.56), norfloxacin (0.1, 0.1), and cefaclor (6.25, 3.13). Forty-one episodes of antibiotic therapy to 32 children, who were treated in Asahikawa Kosei Hospital, Asahikawa Municipal Hospital, and Asahikawa Red Cross Hospital, were evaluated bacteriologically. In 26 episodes treated with fosfomycin, the pathogen from stools of 19 were eradicated, 4 were not eradicated, and 3 were isolated again within 2 weeks after the cessation of therapy. Eight episodes treated with norfloxacin and 5 episodes in kanamycin were all eradicated.

Activity of six quinolones (nalidixic acid, pipemidic acid, oxolinic acid, pefloxacin, ofloxacin and norfloxacin) against one-hundred and ten Pseudomonas strains was studied in vitro. Five species of Pseudomonas were represented, i.e. aeruginosa, maltophilia, cepacia, stutzeri and paucimobilis. Isolates came from two Paris hospitals. Minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) were determined using gelose dilution according to WHO recommendations (Mueller Hinton medium, multiple inoculator, controlled inoculum). Modal CMIs classify activities of the six tested quinolones against P. aeruginosa in the following order: nalidixic acid: 64 mg/l; pipemidic acid: 16-32 mg/l; oxolinic acid: 16 mg/l; pefloxacin: 2 mg/l; ofloxacin: 2 mg/l; norfloxacin: 1 mg/l. The other Pseudomonas species exhibit a variety of resistance phenotypes which are described in detail. High CMIs are found for certain P. aeruginosa strains. Two of these, i.e. DL 55 and DL 59, are highly resistant to all the tested quinolones. Their pattern of resistance is comparable to that of a mutant, PAO 38-02, obtained in vitro in the presence of pefloxacin. This fact suggests that quinolones may induce in vivo selection of resistant P. aeruginosa mutants.

The prevalence of fecal carriage of ESBL-PE was 4.3% (4/93; 95% CI, 0.2-8.4). Klebsiella pneumoniae (n = 2), Enterobacter cloacae (n = 2), Escherichia coli (n = 1), and Serratia odorifera (n = 1) were the ESBL-producing species. Four (66.7%) of these isolates were multidrug-resistant. The blaSHV-12 (n = 5) was the most frequent ESBL gene detected, followed by blaCTX-M-15 (n = 3).The non-ESBL gene detected was blaTEM-1 (n = 5). One isolate harbored the qnrB1 variant. RESULTS of conjugation experiments indicated that blaSHV-12 + blaTEM-1 + qnrB1 and blaCTX-M-15 + blaTEM-1 genes were co-transferred and that these genes were carried by a conjugative plasmid of high molecular weight (125 kb).

The in vitro activity of pefloxacin, a new fluoroquinolone, was compared with that of 5 other quinolone compounds (nalidixic and pipemidic acids, norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and ofloxacin) against 416 strains of Proteae spp. isolated from urine specimens of hospitalized patients with acute urinary tract infections (UTI). Ciprofloxacin was the most active agent. Norfloxacin, ofloxacin, and pefloxacin were similarly active against Proteus strains (MIC90 = 0.39 microgram/ml). Against Providencia spp. pefloxacin and norfloxacin showed similar activity (MIC90 = 3.12 micrograms/ml). There is minimal discrepancy between minimum inhibitory concentrations and minimum bactericidal concentrations exhibited by the quinolones for all urinary tract pathogens tested. Our in vitro studies indicate that pefloxacin is an active antimicrobial agent and suggest that it will prove useful in the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections due to nalidixic acid-resistant Proteae spp.

A DNA fragment responsible for resistance to antimicrobial agents was cloned from the chromosomal DNA of Enterococcus faecalis ATCC 29212 by using drug-hypersensitive mutant Escherichia coli KAM32 as a host cell. Cells of E. coli KAM32 harboring a recombinant plasmid (pAEF82) carrying the DNA fragment became resistant to many structurally unrelated antimicrobial agents, such as norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, doxycycline, acriflavine, 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole, tetraphenylphosphonium chloride, daunorubicin, and doxorubicin. Since the sequence of the whole genome of E. faecalis is known, we sequenced several portions of the DNA insert in plasmid pAEF82 and identified two open reading frames within the insert. We designated the genes efrA and efrB. A search of the deduced amino acid sequences of EfrA and EfrB revealed that they are similar to each other and that they belong to the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) family of multidrug efflux transporters. Transformed E. coli KAM32 cells harboring efrAB showed energy-dependent efflux of acriflavine. The efflux activity was inhibited by reserpine, verapamil, and sodium-o-vanadate, known inhibitors of ABC efflux pumps.

The activity of ten 4-quinolone drugs was tested against five Escherichia coli mutants. Mutational resistance was found to reduce the activity of all Generic Imitrex Reviews ten drugs, indicating that they display biochemical cross-resistance with each other. However, ciprofloxacin and, to a lesser extent, ofloxacin and norfloxacin were so highly active that the most resistance exhibited by any mutant fell well within the serum drug concentration ranges attainable in humans. Hence, clinical cross-resistance in Escherichia coli at least, need not necessarily apply to such highly active 4-quinolone antibacterial agents.

The in vitro activity of enoxacin was tested against 1000 clinical isolates of gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms and compared with that of norfloxacin and amikacin. The MIC90 of enoxacin was 1 mg/l for Enterobacteriaceae, 2.6 mg/l for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and 6.2 mg/l or Staphylococcus aureus. The inoculum effect was minimal. The MICs and MBCs for Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains were significantly affected by the addition Viagra Going Generic of calcium and magnesium ions. Synergy was occasionally observed between enoxacin and the antibiotics tested; antagonism was rare.

A novel chemiluminescence (CL) system for the determination of norfloxacin (NFLX) is developed based on the direct CL reaction of [Ag(HIO(6))(2)](5-)-H(2)SO(4)-NFLX system. The possible mechanism of CL emission and enhancing effect was discussed by comparing UV, fluorescence and CL spectra. [Ag(HIO(6))(2)](5-) in the presence of H(2)SO(4) could produce CL emission at 490 nm, this might be caused by the excited state (O(2))(2)*. The enhancing effect of NFLX may be produced through an intermolecular energy transfer from part of (O(2))(2)* to NFLX molecule and complex of Ag(3+) and NFLX. The CL intensity emission intensity was linear in the range 1.34 x 10(-8) to 5.44 x 10(-6) gmL(-1) with correlation coefficient of 0.9982. The detection limit (s/n=3) was 3.10 x 10(-9) gmL(-1). The recovery was in the range of 90.0-104% with the RSD of 1.1-2.8 Proscar Online Uk %. The proposed flow injection CL method was applied satisfactorily for the determination of NFLX in capsule, human serum and urine.

The in vitro activity of CI-934, a new 4-quinolone, was determined against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. The MICs for 90% of the isolates tested were 0.25 microgram/ml for Streptococcus pneumoniae, 0.5 microgram/ml for Streptococcus faecalis, 0.25 microgram/ml for staphylococci, including methicillin-resistant strains, and less than or equal to 1.0 microgram/ml for Escherichia coli, Salmonella and Shigella spp., Klebsiella spp., Proteus spp., and Citrobacter spp. CI-934 had activity superior to that of other quinolones against streptococci by four- to eightfold. Against members of the family Enterobacteriaceae, ciprofloxacin was 2- to 18-fold more active; ofloxacin and norfloxacin were twofold more active or similar to CI-934. CI-934 inhibited ampicillin-cephalothin-resistant urinary isolates of E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Proteus mirabilis and cefoxatime-resistant Acinetobacter spp Arjuna Anime Online ., Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter cloacae, Proteus vulgaris, and Morganella morganii. The medium, inoculum size, and oxygen concentration, as well as the addition of serum, had not major effect on the activity of CI-934. Magnesium at a concentration of 9 mM increased MICs and MBCs four- to eightfold, and testing at pH 6 increased MICs as much as 32- to 64-fold for some organisms in comparison with MICs at pH 7. The frequency of spontaneous mutation to resistance was comparable to that for other new quinolones, but resistant isolates could be selected by repeated subculture.

The newer quinolones, the fluoroquinolones, are represented by norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, and newer agents such as temafloxacin. These agents represent an improvement over their quinolone counterparts in many ways, including a wider spectrum of antimicrobial activity, improved pharmacokinetic properties, clinical efficacy against a wider range of diseases, and fewer and less severe adverse effects. The focus of preclinical evaluation of fluoroquinolone toxicity is guided by earlier data gathered from the quinolones on the juvenile joint, the kidney, the eye, and the central nervous system (CNS). Animal studies with the fluoroquinolones (norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, and temafloxacin) show similar arthropathic damage to the joints of young animals as did the earlier investigations with quinolones. Effects on the kidney that have been reported with quinolones and fluoroquinolones include mild interstitial nephritis, occult blood in urine, decreased renal function, increased renal weight, and crystalluria. These effects are not believed to be a direct toxic effect, but secondary to precipitation of foreign material in the kidney with a neutral or alkaline urine. Because human urine is not Hyzaar Medication Generic normally alkaline, related toxicities should theoretically not be a problem, and clinical data to date generally support this thesis. Ocular toxicity consisting of lenticular opacities in rats and dogs, electrical and histopathologic changes in cats, and electrical changes in dogs have been reported after fluoroquinolone administration; this toxicity does not appear to be a problem in human use. CNS effects have been noted in both animals and humans. Convulsions have been observed with concomitant administration of enoxacin and fenbufen.

A number of quinolone antibiotics have been found to reduce the hepatic clearance of coadministered drugs such as theophylline. Enoxacin appears to be the most potent inhibitor, consistently decreasing theophylline clearance by more than 50%, while a single study suggests a similar degree of inhibition with pipemidic acid. Ciprofloxacin and pefloxacin reduce theophylline clearance to a smaller extent (approximately 20 to 30%). However, with ciprofloxacin, larger changes and theophylline toxicity have been reported in some subjects. Norfloxacin, ofloxacin and nalidixic acid appear to have minimal effects on theophylline clearance. Enoxacin and ciprofloxacin have also been found to reduce the clearance of caffeine, while ofloxacin has no effect. Few other substrates have been studied. Enoxacin decreases the clearance of R-warfarin with no effect on S-warfarin. In addition, enoxacin has been reported to reduce the clearance of antipyrine, with no effect on chlorpropamide, glibenclamide (glyburide) or phenytoin. The mechanism of these interactions is largely unexplored. It has been suggested that inhibition may be related to the production of 4-oxoquinolone metabolites; however, this hypothesis has not been confirmed. No unique structural feature has been identified to date which explains differences between these compounds in their propensity to affect drug metabolism. Further studies are needed to evaluate the effects of these drugs on other substrates not yet examined and to assess whether or not inhibition is dose related. Clinically, caution is advised when using a quinolone, particularly enoxacin, pipemidic acid, ciprofloxacin or pefloxacin, in combination with theophylline. Close monitoring of theophylline concentrations is recommended in any patient receiving these drugs. The clinical significance of inhibited metabolism of other substrates remains unclear at present. Until further data are available, clinicians should be Avodart Generic Drug aware of the possibility of reduced drug clearance resulting in adverse effects whenever the fluoroquinolones are coadministered with drugs that depend on hepatic metabolism for their elimination.

Mycolic acids are important components having a significant role in maintaining the rigidity of mycobacterial cell wall. They could also be the barrier for penetration of certain drugs into the bacterial cell. A novel in vitro model system was established for assessing the effect of Ciproflaxacin on mycolic acid metabolism in pathogenic mycobacteria M. Kansasii (which has similar mycolic acid pattern to that from M. leprae) and the effect of norfloxacin in M. intracellulare. These test mycobacteria were exposed in their midlogarithmic phase of growth to 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 micrograms ml of ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin respectively for 1, 2 and 24 hours. Ciprofloxacin completely inhibited the synthesis of mycolates in M. kansasii at 3, 4 and 5 micrograms/ml; whereas norfloxacin exhibited its maximum inhibitory action on mycolic acids in M. intracellulare at 6 micrograms/ml for all the durations of exposure. Inhibition of mycolates directly correlated with bacterial viability Crestor Going Generic which was estimated by colony forming units. The effect of quinolones on mycolic acid metabolism appears to be direct and not secondary to DNA gyrase. The results obtained from this study and our previous findings show that mycolic acid metabolism is affected by various groups of drugs, whose primary sites of activity may be different. The findings of the present study may have significant therapeutic implications in leprosy and other mycobacterial diseases.

Soft contact lenses are receiving an increasing attention not only for correcting mild ametropia but also as drug delivery devices. To provide poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate), PHEMA, lenses with the ability to load norfloxacin (NRF) and to Abilify Medication Cost control its release, functional monomers were carefully chosen and then spatially ordered applying the molecular imprinting technology. Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) studies revealed that maximum binding interaction between NRF and acrylic acid (AA) occurs at a 1:1, and that the process saturates at 1:4 molar ratio. Hydrogels were synthesized using different NRF:AA molar ratios (1:2 to 1:16), at two fix AA total concentrations (100 and 200 mM), and using moulds of different thicknesses (0.4 and 0.9 mm). The cross-linker molar concentration was 1.6 times that of AA. Control (non-imprinted) hydrogels were prepared similarly but with the omission of NRF. All hydrogels showed a similar degree of swelling (55%) and, once hydrated, presented adequate optical and viscoelastic properties. After immersion in 0.025, 0.050 and 0.10 mM drug solutions, imprinted hydrogels loaded greater amounts of NRF than the non-imprinted ones. Imprinted hydrogels synthesized using NRF:AA 1:3 and 1:4 molar ratios showed the greatest ability to control the release process, sustaining it for more than 24 h. These results prove that ITC is a useful tool for the optimization of the structure of the imprinted cavities in order to obtain efficient therapeutic soft contact lenses.
