Norfloxacin (NFX), a fluoroquinolone, was encapsulated in multilamellar liposomes (MLV) of soy-bean phosphatidylcholine at pH 7.0. The observed affinity of this class of drugs for hydrophobic environments, such as phospholipid bilayers, could lead to a better understanding of the mechanism of uptake in bacteria. The fluorescent properties of NFX were examined both free in solution and in MLV, using anisotropy and fluorescence quenching measurements. The latter data was treated with a chemometric method to deconvolute the overlapped spectra of zwitterionic and neutral species of NFX in equilibrium at this pH. The results show that NFX incorporates into the lipidic bilayers with two different distributions of species: the zwitterionic form in the lipid/aqueous interface, and the neutral one, more towards the center of the bilayer.

The aim of this study was to determine the distribution of uropathogens isolated from outpatients living in South Croatia and the in vitro susceptibility of these organisms to antimicrobial agents. Of 5080 enrolled uropathogen isolates, 82.28% isolates were Gram-negative, the most frequent isolates being Escherichia coli (62.62%), enterococci (10.18%), Proteus mirabilis (5.31%), Streptococcus agalactiae (3.84%), Staphylococcus spp. (3.70%), Pseudomonas spp. (3.46%), Klebsiella spp. (2.38%). The E. coli resistance rate was 42.17% to amoxycillin, 20.59% to trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole and 6.09% to norfloxacin. Almost all Klebsiella spp. isolates were resistant to amoxycillin and the resistance rate to trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole was over 20%, and 14.15% to the fluoroquinolones. A high methicillin-resistance rate was found among S. aureus (61.22%) and coagulase negative staphylococci (41.48).

In the present paper, p-octacarboxyphenylazocalix[8]arene (CPAC) was used as supramolecular probe according to a reported method. The interaction of CPAC with drug norfloxacin (NFLX) was studied by fluorescence spectrometry. The results show that CPAC can strongly quench the fluorescence of NFLX because of the complex interaction between host and guest molecules in exo-inclusion complex. The spectral changes indicated that the quenching can be considered as static quenching mode. The hydrophobic interaction between the cavity of CPAC and the quinoline ring was the main force to consolidate the exo-inclusive complex CPAC-NFLX stability. The complex constant (K) and binding ratio (n) were determined to be 6. 38 X 10(5) L x mol(-1) and 1, respectively. Further experiment found that the calf thymus DNA and CPAC can combine, leading to the release of NFLX and the enhancement of fluorescence of the reaction system. It is expected that CPAC will be used as drug carrier and releaser.

Twenty-four patients with complicated urinary tract infections were treated with norfloxacin for three months. Group I (n = 12), received 400 mg b.i.d. during three months and Group II (n = 12) received 400 mg b.i.d. during one month, followed by 400 mg as a single dose for two months. Most of the infections (67%), were due to Pseudomonas spp. A bacteriological cure rate of 75% (9/12) and 92% (11/12) in groups I and II, respectively, was achieved after three months therapy. One month after cessation of therapy patients were free of their initial infection in 75% (9/12) and 83% (10/12), respectively. Clinical cure was achieved in 75% of the patients in both groups. This remained the case in group I after cessation of treatment. In group II, 50% remained free of symptoms one month post-therapy. Both clinical and laboratory adverse reactions were minor and none of the patients discontinued treatment due to side effects. Norfloxacin therapy was effective in the long term treatment of chronic recurrent infections in patients with severe urological conditions. Prevention of relapse or reinfection from the primary endogenous faecal reservoirs (Enterobacteriaceae), was probably due to the high effect of norfloxacin against these organisms. The relatively good effect on pseudomonas infection in this group of patients, was probably due to a high concentration of norfloxacin in the urine.

The crystallization of fluoroquinolone antibiotics norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin with carboxylic acids gave six new salts that were characterized by infrared spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray powder diffraction, and single crystal X-ray diffraction. Five of these salts are hydrates with different levels of water content. The molecular composition, stoichiometry, and proton transfer state in these salts are confirmed from the crystal structure. The effect of carboxylate counterion, such as oxalate, tartarate, benzoate, malonate, and citrate, and hydration state on the solubility and dissolution profile of drug salts are reported in pure water (pH 6.4), 0.1 N HCl (pH 1.2), and phosphate buffer solution (pH 6.8). These salts are more soluble and exhibit faster dissolution in pure water and phosphate buffer medium than the reference drugs, but the order is reversed in acidic medium. These salts are chemically stable to the dissolution measurement conditions, whereas the reference drug norfloxacin undergoes phase transformation to norfloxacin hydrate at the end of the experiment.

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.

Non-Diphtheria corynebacteria had been considered a commensal habitant of the human skin and mucous membrane. There are few reports of pulmonary infections due to Corynebacterium pseudodiphtheriticum or other non-diphtheria corynebacteria occurring in immunocompetent patients. From 1978 to 1986, 8 patients with lower respiratory tract infections with Corynebacterium sp. was observed. In 6 of 8 instances the causative microorganism was C. pseudodiphtheriticum. The above 8 patients had underlying pulmonary diseases but were not associated with immunosuppressive state, except one. Seven of them recovered from the infection in response to antimicrobial therapy. All 6 isolates of C. pseudodiphtheriticum were sensitive to nine antimicrobial agents which were six beta-lactam agents, gentamicin, minocycline and norfloxacin.

Presently, most Neisseria gonorrhoeae testing is based on beta-lactamase tests and agar dilution with common therapeutic agents. The National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) recently described a disk diffusion test that produced results similar to the reference agar dilution method for the antibiotic susceptibility of N. gonorrhoeae. We obtained 71 gonococcal isolates from active-duty males aboard a United States Navy vessel while deployed in the Western Pacific during 1989. In addition, 47 isolates of N. gonorrhoeae were obtained from sexually transmitted disease clinics within the branch clinic operations of the Naval Hospital, San Diego (SD), and tested. Antibiotic susceptibility tests by using the NCCLS agar dilution and disk diffusion techniques were compared. Among the Southeast Asia (SEA) isolates, 47% were beta-lactamase producers compared with 10.5% of the SD isolates. The mean MICs (SEA/SD) in micrograms per milliliter for both groups were as follows: penicillin, 88/15; tetracycline, 2.2/0.95; erythromycin, 1.2/0.49; ceftriaxone, 0.016/0.012; cefotaxime, 0.034/0.03; cefuroxime, 0.44/0.17; cefoxitin, 1.3/0.97; spectinomycin, 150/131; ciprofloxacin, 0.07/0.034; norfloxacin, 0.77/0.29; lomefloxacin, 0.15/0.0.056; and ofloxacin, 0.07/0.036. The established NCCLS interpretive criteria for both susceptibility methods appear applicable to domestic gonococcal strains. However, modifications may be necessary for the more antimicrobial agent-resistant SEA isolates on the basis of the clinical success and cure rates following the indicated single-dose regimens for the geographic region.

A total of 431 rectal swabs, collected from acute diarrheal cases at a surveillance site and at different diarrheal outbreak areas of Orissa from May to October 2005, were bacteriologically analyzed. Out of 265 culture-positive samples, Vibrio cholerae O1 was isolated in 56 samples (20.8%), of which 37 were the Inaba serotype and 19 were the Ogawa. The antibiogram profile revealed that all the V. cholerae O1 Ogawa and Inaba serotypes were uniformly sensitive to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, gentamicin, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and tetracycline. The V. cholerae O1 Inaba serotypes were resistant to furazolidone and nalidixic acid, while the Ogawa strains were resistant to furazolidone, nalidixic acid and neomycin. The multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay on some selected strains of both serotypes revealed that all the strains were positive for ctxA and tcpA genes showing biotype El Tor. The present study revealed the emergence of V. cholerae O1 biotype El Tor serotype Inaba, which caused sporadic outbreaks of cholera in 2005. The outbreaks of diarrheal disorders in one geographical area of the state (in the Pattamundai area, Kendrapara district) in 2005 were due to V. cholerae O1 Ogawa, whereas the other outbreaks in other areas (Puri, Khurda and Dhenkanal districts) from August to October 2005 were due to V. cholerae O1 serotype Inaba. This is the first report that an emergence of V. cholerae O1 serotype Inaba caused sporadic outbreaks of cholera in different parts of Orissa. Switching over of V. cholerae O1 Ogawa strains to Inaba, causing diarrheal outbreaks in Orissa, needs close monitoring.

A high carriage rate of multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli (MDREC) was observed in elderly residents in long-term care facilities. A double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial was carried out to determine whether the probiotic product E. coli strain Nissle 1917 (Mutaflor) would compete with MDREC in the bowel and thereby reduce the prevalence of the multiresistant bacteria in faeces and urine. Sixty-nine patients excreting norfloxacin-resistant E. coli were randomized to probiotic or placebo groups and administered capsules twice daily. The daily dose of probiotic was 5×10(9)-5×10(10) bacteria. Faecal and urine samples were cultured at baseline and during and after the treatment period. A reduction in baseline carriage was not influenced by probiotic administration. The probiotic strain was detected in faecal specimens collected during the treatment period of only two out of 12 probiotic group subjects that were tested. Genotyping of norfloxacin-resistant E. coli isolates showed that 32 strains were prevalent among the patients. Thus, E. coli Nissle 1917 does not have the capacity to compete effectively with MDREC in the bowel of elderly patients.

E-4502, E-4501, E-4500, E-4480, E-4474, and E-4441 are new monofluorinated or difluorinated quinolone agents that are chemically characterized by the presence of an azetidin ring, with different C'-3 substituents, at position 7 of the molecular structure. The MICs of the difluorinated compounds E-4501, E-4474, and E-4441 for 90% of isolates were 0.06 to 1, 0.06 to 1, and 0.12 to 1 microgram/ml, respectively, against gram-positive organisms (staphylococci, streptococci, and Enterococcus faecalis); 0.0015 to 0.12, 0.015 to 0.12, and 0.03 to 0.12 microgram/ml, respectively, against members of the family Enterobacteriaceae except Providencia spp.; and 1, 1, and 2 micrograms/ml, respectively, against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. E-4501, E-4474, and E-4441 inhibited all anaerobic bacteria at concentrations of 1, 2, and 4 micrograms/ml, respectively. Difluorinated compounds were significantly more active than the corresponding monofluorinated analogs E-4502, E-4500, and E-4480 against aerobic and facultatively anaerobic organisms, as well as against anaerobes. Considering monofluorinated and difluorinated compounds, activity in moderate ascending order was observed in quinolones containing an amine and a methyl group (E-4441 and E-4480), an amine group (E-4474 and E-4500), and a methylamine group (E-4501 and E-4502) in the C'-3 position of the azetidin ring. E-4501, E-4474, and E-4441 were more active than norfloxacin and DR-3355 [S-(-)-ofloxacin], had activities comparable to or slightly lower than that of ciprofloxacin against gram-negative bacteria, and were more active than all the reference quinolones against gram-positive organisms and anaerobes. E-4502 and E-4501, which were used to determine the effect of pH, were less active in acidic medium. In general, E-4502, E-4501, E-4500, E-4480, E-4474, and E-4441 activities were not affected or increased in medium containing serum but decreased in the presence of 10 mM Mg2+ or in human urine at pH 5.5. The protective effect of E-4501, E-4474, and E-4441 after oral administration against systemic infections with Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in mice was greater than that of ciprofloxacin.

Over a 13-month period, 118 therapeutic paracenteses were performed in 29 outpatients with decompensated cirrhosis (Child-Pugh class B = 38%, C = 62%). After a brief medical history and physical examination, ascitic fluid cell count with differential and culture were obtained from all participating subjects. Seven (24%) of the subjects were receiving norfloxacin prophylaxis, accounting for antibiotic coverage during 40% of the procedures performed. The clinical course and outcome of study subjects during a mean follow-up of 137 days was reviewed.

We explored the existence of nucleoid DNA loops in Escherichia coli by studying the distribution of bacterial type II topoisomerases (Topo IIs). Norfloxacin-induced high molecular weight (HMW) DNA fragmentation of nucleoid, an event reminiscent of the excision of eukaryotic chromosomal DNA loops mediated by topoisomerase II (TOP2). The size of the HMW DNA fragments induced by norfloxacin was affected by transcription, translation and growth phases of bacteria. The involvement of bacterial Topo IIs in the generation of these HMW DNA fragments is supported by the following observations: (i) the excised loop-sized DNA fragments were covalently linked to proteins; (ii) the norfloxacin-induced excision of DNA loops was highly reversible; (iii) coumermycin A1 antagonized the excision of DNA loops induced by norfloxacin; (iv) this antagonistic effect was reduced in either gyrase or topo IV mutants conferring coumarin resistance and (v) norfloxacin-induced reversible, gyrase-mediated DNA cleavage in vitro. Importantly, studies on coumarin- and/or quinolone-resistant mutant strains showed that DNA gyrase, rather than topoisomerase IV, plays the major role in the generation of loop-sized HMW DNA fragments. In sum, our study suggests a potential role of Topo IIs in the arrangement of DNA supercoiling loop domains in prokaryotic cells.

The ABC efflux system PatA/PatB is induced upon exposure to subinhibitory concentrations of fluoroquinolones, whether substrates of the transporter or not. This effect, possibly resulting from the activation of the competence pathway, may contribute to resistance.

The postoperative duration of pyuria was studied in 35 patients who underwent transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR-P). The average postoperative duration of pyuria was 58.0 +/- 23.6 days. The age over 70 years, preoperative indwelling of urethral catheter and the preoperative urinary tract infection did not make the duration of pyuria longer. The volume of resected prostatic tissue over 20 g and the existence of diabetes mellitus make it significantly longer. It is effective and safe to use a low-dose antibacterial agent such as NFLX which has a broad spectrum and hardly develops bacterial resistance after TUR-P. It is suggested unnecessary to change the anti-bacterial agent even when pyuria continues.

Knowledge of the origins and dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) is essential for understanding modern resistomes in the environment. The mechanisms of the dissemination of ARGs can be revealed through comparative studies on the metagenomic profiling of ARGs between relatively pristine and human-impacted environments. The deep ocean bed of the South China Sea (SCS) is considered to be largely devoid of anthropogenic impacts, while the Pearl River Estuary (PRE) in south China has been highly impacted by intensive human activities. Commonly used antibiotics (sulfamethazine, norfloxacin, ofloxacin, tetracycline, and erythromycin) have been detected through chemical analysis in the PRE sediments, but not in the SCS sediments. In the relatively pristine SCS sediments, the most prevalent and abundant ARGs are those related to resistance to macrolides and polypeptides, with efflux pumps as the predominant mechanism. In the contaminated PRE sediments, the typical ARG profiles suggest a prevailing resistance to antibiotics commonly used in human health and animal farming (including sulfonamides, fluoroquinolones, and aminoglycosides), and higher diversity in both genotype and resistance mechanism than those in the SCS. In particular, antibiotic inactivation significantly contributed to the resistance to aminoglycosides, β-lactams, and macrolides observed in the PRE sediments. There was a significant correlation in the levels of abundance of ARGs and those of mobile genetic elements (including integrons and plasmids), which serve as carriers in the dissemination of ARGs in the aquatic environment. The metagenomic results from the current study support the view that ARGs naturally originate in pristine environments, while human activities accelerate the dissemination of ARGs so that microbes would be able to tolerate selective environmental stress in response to anthropogenic impacts.

Increased MICs of norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin (to a lesser extent) and increased expression of patA and patB were seen for all resistant strains; these were reduced in patA or patB disruptants or in the presence of reserpine. Exposure to any of the five fluoroquinolones caused a reversible increase in expression of patA and patB, but not of pmrA. Mitomycin C, an inducer of the competence system in S. pneumoniae, also induced patA and patB expression in the two strains tested.

Pyochelin is a siderophore common to Pseudomonas aeruginosa and several other pathogenic bacteria. A pyochelin functionalized at the N3'' position with a propyl-amine extension was previously synthesized. In the present work we proved that this analog binds FptA, the pyochelin outer membrane receptor, and transports iron(III) efficiently into bacteria. This functionalized pyochelin seemed to be a good candidate for antibiotic vectorization in the framework of a Trojan horse prodrug strategy. In this context, conjugates between pyochelin and three fluoroquinolones (norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin and N-desmethyl-ofloxacin) were synthesized with a spacer arm that was either stable or hydrolyzable in vivo. Some pyochelin-fluoroquinolone conjugates had antibacterial activities in growth inhibition experiments on several P. aeruginosa strains. However, these activities were weaker than those of the antibiotic alone. These properties appeared to be related to both the solubility and bioavailability of conjugates and to the stability of the spacer arm used.

Of 230 cases of bloody diarrhoea studied, 100 (43.5%) were positive for Shigellae by stool culture, of which Shigella dysenteriae type 1 was isolated from 56 cases, S. flexneri from 35, S. boydii from 5 and S. sonnei from 4. The major clinical manifestations of the patients infected with Shigella spp. were abdominal pain, anorexia, vomiting, tenesmus, and fever. Fever of above 100.5 degrees F and frequency of stool of more than 15 per day were noticed more among cases infected with S. dysenteriae type 1 and S. flexneri. Vomiting was more frequently observed in cases infected with S. sonnei or S. boydii (44.4%) as compared to those infected with S. dysenteriae type 1 (10.7%) and S. flexneri (8.6%). All Shigella isolates were uniformly susceptible to norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin but were resistant to streptomycin. S. dysenteriae type 1 isolates were susceptible to nalidixic acid (69.6%), ampicillin (5.4%), TMP-SMX (12.5%), furazolidone (98.2%) and gentamycin (80.4%), whereas all other Shigella isolates (S. flexneri, S. boydii, and S. sonnei) were uniformly susceptible to nalidixic acid, > 94% susceptible to furazolidone, and only moderately susceptible to ampicillin (28.6% to 55.5%) and TMP-SMX (22.2% to 48.6%).

Apart from two, all tested isolates had common mutations on GyrA (Ser83Leu and Ser87Gly) and ParC (Ser80Gln). Isolates EACR24 and EACR39 had mutations that have not been reported previously: Ala81Pro in ParC and Arg157Gly in GyrA, respectively. Increased susceptibility of all the tested isolates to ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin in the presence of the pump inhibitor implies that efflux pumps contributed to the resistance against fluoroquinolones. Expression of the efflux pump-related genes, tolC, mdfA, and ydhE, were induced in isolates EACR 07, EACR 29, and EACR 33 in the presence of ciprofloxacin.

DNA topoisomerases are important targets in anticancer and antibacterial therapy because drugs can initiate cell death by stabilizing the transient covalent topoisomerase-DNA complex. In this study, we employed a method that uses CsCl density gradient centrifugation to separate unbound from DNA-bound GyrA/ParC in Escherichia coli cell lysates after quinolone treatment, allowing antibody detection and quantitation of the covalent complexes on slot blots. Using these procedures modified from the in vivo complexes of enzyme (ICE) bioassay, we found a correlation between gyrase-DNA complex formation and DNA replication inhibition at bacteriostatic (1× MIC) norfloxacin concentrations. Quantitation of the number of gyrase-DNA complexes per E. coli cell permitted an association between cell death and chromosomal gyrase-DNA complex accumulation at norfloxacin concentrations greater than 1× MIC. When comparing levels of gyrase-DNA complexes to topoisomerase IV-DNA complexes in the absence of drug, we observed that the gyrase-DNA complex level was higher (∼150-fold) than that of the topoisomerase IV-DNA complex. In addition, levels of gyrase and topoisomerase IV complexes reached a significant increase after 30 min of treatment at 1× and 1.7× MIC, respectively. These results are in agreement with gyrase being the primary target for quinolones in E. coli. We further validated the utility of this method for the study of topoisomerase-drug interactions in bacteria by showing the gyrase covalent complex reversibility after removal of the drug from the medium, and the resistant effect of the Ser83Leu gyrA mutation on accumulation of gyrase covalent complexes on chromosomal DNA.

Mastitis is one of the largest production concerns in the dairy industry worldwide. Mastitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus is a major concern to the dairy industry because of its resistance to antibiotic treatment. In this report, the results of antibiotic susceptibility test, carried out on 236 Staphylococcus aureus isolated from milk samples which were collected from cases of mastitis in cow herds of China, are presented. The regions and number of isolates include Inner Mongolia (112), Hebei (58) and Heilongjiang (66). Susceptibility to ampicillin, penicillin G, amoxicillin, piperacillin, cephalexin, cephazolin, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, cefoxitin, SMZ-TMP, gentamycin, kanamycin, norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, furaxone, torlamician, roxithromycin, clindamycin and vancomycin was determined by the disc diffusion method. Antibiotic susceptibility testing showed 87.30% (206 of 236) isolates were resistant to penicillin G. This result compares with the reports from other countries; the overall level of resistance was generally high for all antimicrobial agents tested.

This study demonstrates that Escherichia coli isolates from human stools showed mostly higher minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) and significant rates of resistance (32%-67%, P<0.05) than Escherichia coli water isolates in Jordan, as follows: ampicillin (67% vs 28%), trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (67% vs 28%) nalidixic acid (63% vs 20%), cefuroxime (32% vs 4%), gentamicin (32% vs 17%), norfloxacin (32% vs 12%) and tetracycline (33% vs 16%). The prevalence of integron integrase genes (Intl1) in these isolates was also significantly higher in patients' stools (67%, P <0.05) than in water (36%), but the distribution of Sul 1/Sul 2 or both in association with postive Intl1 and resistance to ampicillin and sulfamethoxazole was not significantly higher (74% versus 62%, P <0.05) in isolates from stool and water. Plasmid profiles of representative multiresistant E. coli isolates from both sources indicated the presence of two common plasmids (49,25 kb) in 11/12 (91.6%), and all E. coli transconjugants were positive for class 1 integron markers (Intl 1, Sul 1 and Sul2) and mostly associated with three transferable drug-resistant determinants to ampicillin, sulfamethoxazole and tetracycline. These results indicate that class 1 integrons with conjugative R-plasmids are common and transferable among commensal antimicrobial multiresistant E. coli isolated from human feces and drinking water sources in Jordan.

Acute gastroenteritis is a potential cause of substantial morbidity in U.S. military personnel during deployment. This study was conducted to evaluate enteric pathogens associated with diarrhea in a U.S. military population on deployment in Cairo, Egypt, during November 1993. Enteric pathogens found to be associated with cases of diarrhea included: enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), 27% (22% heat-stable [ST], 3% heat-labile [LT], and 2% ST/LT producers); Campylobacter spp., 3%; and Salmonella spp. 3%. Other enteric pathogens, namely Shigella, Aeromonas, Plesiomonas, Vibrio spp., Bacillus cereus, and enteric parasites, were not found in any of the 36 patients. Of the 8 patients who were ETEC-positive, three expressed colonization factor antigens (CFA)/II, and two expressed putative colonization factor antigen (PCF) 0159. All of the latter isolates produced ST. ETEC with different surface protein antigens were found to have surface hydrophobicity in the range of 0.2 M to greater than 2.0 M. Plasmid profiles of the ETEC strains showed no correlation with toxin production. In vitro susceptibility testing of the ETEC strain showed that 32% of the strains were resistant to three or more antimicrobial agents, whereas 24% showed 100% susceptibility. The enteropathogens tested were susceptible to norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and nalidixic acid, suggesting that the quinolones might be useful for the treatment of diarrheic patients.

The influence buy noroxin online of faeces on the activity of 9 antibiotics currently used for selective decontamination of the digestive tract was studied. These in vitro findings showed that the antimicrobial activity is differently affected by the presence and concentration of faeces. Great differences in loss of activity were observed on different microorganisms. Decontaminating drugs which were found to be minimally inactivated in vitro by the presence of faeces are proven to be superior in clinical studies too.

Shigellosis is an acute gastroenteritis caused by Shigella species. Forty isolates of Shigella spp. were obtained from the river Narmada during 2005-2006. Twenty-three isolates were identified as S. flexneri, 10 as S. sonnei, and seven as buy noroxin online S. dysenteriae on the basis of biochemical tests and serotyping. All the isolates harbored at least one plasmid (range: 1-4) and exhibited 12 distinct plasmid profile patterns. Out of 40 isolates, 90% were found to be resistant against more than two antibiotics. All of the isolates were resistant to ciprofloxacin. It is noteworthy that all of the S. dysenteriae strains were resistant to chloramphenicol and trimethoprim, and that all of the S. flexneri and S. sonnei strains were resistant to cephotaxime, amikacin, and norfloxacin, which can be used for the treatment of shigellosis. Forty-two and a half percent of Shigella isolates were found to be Congo red positive. Since the Congo red binding test is cheap and simple, it can be used to determine the virulence properties of Shigella species. We could not find a specific correlation between serotype, antimicrobial resistance, and plasmid profile.

Streptococcus suis is an emerging zoonotic pathogen. With the lack of an effective vaccine, antibiotics remain the main tool to fight infections caused by this pathogen. We have previously observed a reserpine-sensitive fluoroquinolone (FQ) efflux phenotype in this species. Here, SatAB and SmrA, two pumps belonging to the ATP binding cassette (ABC) and the major facilitator superfamily (MFS), respectively, have been analyzed in the fluoroquinolone-resistant clinical isolate BB1013. Genes encoding these pumps were overexpressed either constitutively or in the presence of ciprofloxacin in this strain. These genes could not be cloned in plasmids in Escherichia coli despite strong expression repression. Finally, site-directed insertion of smrA and satAB in the amy locus of the Bacillus subtilis chromosome using buy noroxin online ligated PCR amplicons allowed for the functional expression and study of both pumps. Results showed that SatAB is a narrow-spectrum fluoroquinolone exporter (norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin), susceptible to reserpine, whereas SmrA was not involved in fluoroquinolone resistance. Chromosomal integration in Bacillus is a novel method for studying efflux pumps from Gram-positive bacteria, which enabled us to demonstrate the possible role of SatAB, and not SmrA, in fluoroquinolone efflux in S. suis.

Norfloxacin, ofloxacin, and other new quinolones, which are antagonists of the enzyme DNA gyrase, rapidly kill bacteria by largely unknown mechanisms. Earlier, we isolated, after mutagenesis, Escherichia coli DS1, which exhibited reduced killing by quinolones. We evaluated the killing of DS1 and several other strains by quinolones and beta-lactams. In time-killing studies with norfloxacin, DS1 was killed 1 to 2 log10 units compared to 4 to 5 log10 units for the wild-type parent strain KL16, thus revealing that DS1 is a high-persistence (hip) mutant. DS1 exhibited a similar high-persistence pattern for the beta-lactam ampicillin and reduced killing by drugs that differed in their affinities for penicillin-binding proteins, including cefoxitin, cefsulodin, imipenem, mecillinam, and piperacillin. Conjugation and P1 transduction studies identified a novel mutant locus (termed hipQ) in the 2-min region of the DS1 chromosome necessary for reduced killing by norfloxacin and ampicillin. E. coli buy noroxin online KL500, which was isolated for reduced killing by norfloxacin without mutagenesis, exhibited reduced killing by ampicillin. E. coli HM23, a hipA (34 min) mutant that was isolated earlier for reduced killing by ampicillin, also exhibited high persistence to norfloxacin. DS1 differed from HM23, however, in the map location of its hip mutation, lack of cold sensitivity, and reduced killing by coumermycin. Results of these studies with strains DS1, KL500, and HM23 demonstrate overlap in the pathways of killing of E. coli by quinolones and beta-lactams and identify hipQ, a new mutant locus that is involved in a high-persistence pattern of reduced killing by norfloxacin and ampicillin.

We cloned genes, designated smdAB, that encode a multidrug efflux pump from the chromosomal DNA of clinically isolated Serratia marcescens NUSM8906. For cells of the drug-hypersensitive strain Escherichia coli KAM32 harboring a recombinant plasmid carrying smdAB, structurally unrelated antimicrobial agents such as norfloxacin, tetracycline, 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI), buy noroxin online and Hoechst 33342 showed elevated MICs. The deduced amino acid sequences of both SmdA and SmdB exhibited similarities to the sequences of ATP-binding cassette (ABC)-type multidrug efflux pumps. The efflux of DAPI and Hoechst 33342 from E. coli cells expressing SmdAB was observed, and the efflux activities were inhibited by sodium o-vanadate, which is a well-known ATPase inhibitor. The introduction of smdA or smdB alone into E. coli KAM32 did not elevate the MIC of DAPI; thus, both SmdA and SmdB were required for function. These results indicate that SmdAB is probably a heterodimeric multidrug efflux pump of the ABC family in S. marcescens.

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 of calcium and magnesium ions. Synergy was occasionally observed between enoxacin and buy noroxin online the antibiotics tested; antagonism was rare.

In this study, the serogroup and susceptibility patterns of Shigella and Salmonella spp. isolated from stool cultures were determined using standard laboratory procedures. Among the 76 Shigella isolates serogroup B ( buy noroxin online Sh. flexeneri) was the most prevalent species (54.0%) and among the 37 Salmonella strains serogroup B was also the most prevalent (81.1%). Antibiograms of Shigella and Salmonella spp. showed 100% resistance to erythromycin and high resistance rates (> or = 75%) to ampicillin, cephalothin, chloramphenicol and tetracycline. Salmonella spp. also had high resistance to gentamicin, sulphonamide, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. Shigella were susceptible to gentamicin (100%) and nalidixic acid (97.3%) and Shigella and Salmonella were 100.0% susceptible to norfloxacin.

Fluoroquinolones (FQs) are a widely prescribed group of antibiotics. They enter the aqueous environment, where they are frequently detected, and can lead to a threat to human health. Drinking water buy noroxin online treatment plants (DWTPs) play a key role in removing FQs from potable water. This study investigated the occurrence and removal of four selected FQs (norfloxacin (NOR), ciprofloxacin (CIP), enrofloxacin (ENR), and ofloxacin (OFL)) in three urban DWTPs in China. The treatment efficacy for each system was simultaneously evaluated. Two of the examined DWTPs used conventional treatment processes. The third used conventional processes followed by additional treatment processes (ozonation-biologically activated carbon (ozonation-BAC) and membrane technology). The average concentrations of the four FQs in the source water and the finished water ranged from 51 to 248 ng/L and from <5 to 46 ng/L, respectively. Based on residual concentrations, the conventional treatment system had a low removal of FQs. In contrast, the addition of advanced treatment processes such as the ozonation-BAC and membranes, substantially improved the removal of FQs. The finding of this study has important implications: even though coagulation-sedimentation and chlorination treatment processes can remove most target FQs, the typical practice of advanced treatment processes is necessary for the further removal.

Streptococcus pneumoniae is the leading cause of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Currently, empirical treatment with quinolones is being used due to the emergence of beta-lactam and macrolide resistance in S. pneumonaie. Although the prevalence of quinolone-resistant S. pneumoniae remains low, increasing numbers of resistant isolates are being seen. Genetic mechanisms leading to fluoroquinolone resistance in pneumococci are complex. This study aims to use molecular methods to characterise all isolates through sequence analysis of their QRDR regions. Thirty-two S. pneumoniae isolates were obtained from nasal swabs from adult and paediatric patients attending local general practices in Northern Ireland. Phenotypic minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was determined for Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) broth microdilution against ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin and norfloxacin. Simultaneously, the QRDR regions of gyrA, gyrB, parC and parE were analysed by sequence typing for all pneumococci obtained. Only one isolate (3.1%) showed reduced susceptibility to ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin. Two amino acid positions were discordant in the S. pneumoniae R6 strain and eight (25%) and 23 (71.9%) isolates contained the mutations Ile460Val in gyrA and Lys137Asn buy noroxin online in parC (deposited in GenBank, accession numbers GQ999587-GQ999589), respectively. No mutations were found in either the gyrB or parE loci. In conclusion, the study demonstrated increased fluoroquinolone resistance which could not be accounted for simply through QRDR mutations, and, reciprocally, that mutations in the QRDR region do not necessarily result in overt phenotypic resistance.

SmrA was identified in the S. maltophilia genome based on the detection of ABC transporter conserved motifs and alignment with experimentally proven MDR ABC transporters. The smrA gene was cloned and expressed in the hypersusceptible acrAB mutant Escherichia coli strain SM1411. The resistance to several antimicrobial agents was tested using Stokes' disc diffusion and broth microdilution MIC methods. Norfloxacin accumulation and efflux assays were performed using a fluorescence method with Buspar Dosage Information and without the efflux pump inhibitors sodium O-vanadate and reserpine.

A method is proposed for the direct and simultaneous determination of the thermodynamic ionization constants of Augmentin Adult Dose bifunctional substances, with (microscopic) and without overlap in the ionizations, with computational treatment of spectrophotometric and potentiometric experimental data obtained simultaneously in a flow system. For monofunctional substances, potentiometric data are enough. The data are obtained at very low values of ionic strength, which is variable throughout the experiment because no inert electrolyte is added. The MICROTER program, written in FORTRAN 77, is based on an algorithm of mathematical optimization with a controlled-descent movement. The ionization constants of the following substances of pharmacological interest were determined: cysteine, penicillamine, ofloxacin, and norfloxacin (bifunctional with overlap); cephalexin and cephapirin (bifunctional without overlap); and tolazoline, naphazoline, and oximetazoline (monofunctional).

Abnormal vascular tone is responsible for many of the complications seen in cirrhosis making the identification of the pathophysiology of abnormal dilatation a major focus in hepatology research. The study of abnormal vascular tone is complicated by the multiple vascular beds involved (hepatic, splanchnic, peripheral, renal and pulmonary), the differences in the underlying cause of portal hypertension (hepatic versus pre-hepatic) and the slow evolution of the hyperdynamic state. The autonomic nervous system, circulating vasodilators and abnormalities in vascular smooth muscle cells (receptors, ion channels, signalling systems and contraction) have all been implicated. There is overwhelming evidence for an overproduction of NO (nitric oxide) contributing to the peripheral dilatation in both animal Cipro Drug Interactions models of, and in humans with, cirrhosis and portal hypertension. This review focuses on the proposal that endotoxaemia, possibly from gut-derived bacterial translocation, causes induction of NOS (NO synthase) leading to increased vascular NO production, which is the primary stimulus for the development of vasodilatation in cirrhosis and its accompanying clinical manifestations. The current controversy lies not in whether NO production is elevated, but in which isoform of NOS is responsible. We review the evidence for endotoxaemia in cirrhosis and the factors contributing to gut-derived bacterial translocation, including intestinal motility and permeability, and finally discuss the possible role of selective intestinal decontamination in the management of circulatory abnormalities in cirrhosis.

Scandinavian studies have confirmed that ciprofloxacin is highly active against most Gram-negative bacterial species with extremely low minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC-values) except for Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The antibacterial activity is approximately four times higher than that of norfloxacin. Gram-positive cocci are less sensitive with MIC-values of 0.5 to 1 mg/l. For pneumococci the ciprofloxacin concentration inhibiting 90% of clinical isolates (MIC90) is approximately 2 mg/l. The antibacterial activity of ciprofloxacin is influenced very little by an increased inoculum and culture conditions. However, urine reduces the antibacterial activity. Resistance to ciprofloxacin occurs extremely rarely among E. coli, but development of resistance among species like P. aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus may be more frequent. Ciprofloxacin is a bacterial antibiotic but killing of staphylococci was poor when studied kinetically. Ciprofloxacin plus piperacillin act synergistically against strains of P. aeruginosa. Ciprofloxacin has a post-antibiotic effect (PAE) of approximately 2h against both Gram-negative rods and Aciphex Cost Comparison Gram-positive cocci.

The use of antibiotic feed additives in broiler chickens results in a high prevalence of resistance among their enteric bacteria, with a consequent emergence of antibiotic resistance in zoonotic enteropathogens. Despite growing concerns about the Tofranil 50 Mg emergence of antibiotic-resistant strains, which show varying prevalences in different geographic regions, little work has been done to investigate this issue in the Middle East. This study provides insight into one of the world's most common and financially crippling poultry diseases, necrotic enteritis caused by Clostridium perfringens. The study was designed to determine the prevalence of antibiotic resistance in C. perfringens isolates from clinical cases of necrotic enteritis in broiler chickens in Egypt. A total of 125 isolates were obtained from broiler flocks in 35 chicken coops on 17 farms and were tested using the disc diffusion method. All 125 isolates were resistant to gentamicin, streptomycin, oxolinic acid, lincomycin, erythromycin and spiramycin. The prevalence of resistance to other antibiotics was also high: rifampicin (34%), chloramphenicol (46%), spectinomycin (50%), tylosin-fosfomycin (52%), ciprofloxacin (58%), norfloxacin (67%), oxytetracycline (71%), flumequine (78%), enrofloxacin (82%), neomycin (93%), colistin (94%), pefloxacin (94%), doxycycline (98%) and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (98%). It is recommended that C. perfringens infections in Egypt should be treated with antibiotics for which resistant isolates are rare at present; namely, amoxicillin, ampicillin, cephradine, fosfomycin and florfenicol.

Twenty-three norfloxacin-selected first-step mutants of Streptococcus pneumoniae showed low-level fluoroquinolone resistance. Their susceptibility to norfloxacin in the presence or absence of reserpine and known efflux pump substrates was determined by an agar dilution method. Five mutants showed four- to eightfold increases in their susceptibility to norfloxacin in the presence of reserpine and four- to eightfold decreases in their susceptibility to acriflavine and ethidium bromide. This phenotype is suggestive of an efflux mechanism of resistance. A representative of these mutants, 1N27, accumulated significantly less ethidium bromide than the parent strain; reserpine abolished these differences. No changes in the quinolone resistance-determining regions of parC, parE, gyrA, or gyrB were found in this mutant. By our validated agar dilution method, the efflux phenotype was sought in clinical isolates of S. pneumoniae. Of 1,037 clinical isolates examined from the United Kingdom, 273 showed reduced susceptibility to norfloxacin or Glucotrol Diabetes Medicine ciprofloxacin. Of these, 45.4% showed the efflux phenotype. Our findings suggest that an efflux mechanism may be a frequent cause of clinically significant fluoroquinolone resistance in pneumococci.

Eighteen isolates (8,3%) carried Mebendazole Vermox Cost the qnr gene encoding the QnrA, QnrB or QnrS. The coexistence of both qnrA and qnrS genes was noted in one isolate of E. coli. The qnrB gene was the most common qnr type found. All the Qnr-producing strains were simultaneously resistant to naldixic acid and different - level non-susceptible fluoroquinolone (MIC CIP 1.5-1024 microg/ml). Most of qnr-positive strains (88.9%) were extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) producers of CTX-M and TEM types predominantly.

We assessed the antimicrobial resistance patterns of all urine samples submitted for culture from outpatient women aged ≥14 years with diagnosis of uncomplicated cystitis over a 24-month period (2007-2009) in the city of Fortaleza, Brazil. Only bacterial growth of a single uropathogen with ≥10(5) CFU/mL was considered for analysis. The Pearson's chi-square test was used Avapro Brand Name for bivariate correlations. Escherichia coli presented the highest prevalence (64.7%). Coagulase-negative staphylococcus was more common in younger than in older women (P = 0.003). Gentamicin presented the lowest overall resistance pattern (3.5% resistant), followed by ceftriaxone (5%) and norfloxacin (7.5%). Ampicillin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole were the least active agents with 63.7% and 39.8% of resistance, respectively. The resistant rate to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole was significantly higher among E. coli than non-E. coli isolated. Among ciprofloxacin-resistant E. coli strains, only 3.4% were resistant to nitrofurantoin. We conclude that trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole follows a worldwide tendency of antimicrobial increasing resistance and it should be avoided as first-line empirical treatment for urinary tract infections.

Sixty-nine patients (18 female, 51 male), mean age 53.9 +/- 10.6 years, were prescribed N (n = 37) or TS (n = 32). The Child-Pugh score, model for end-stage liver disease score, and the prevalence of a low ascitic protein (<15 g/L) were similar between the groups (12.0 vs 12.4, 19.7 vs 18.2, and 78% vs 84%, respectively, P > 0.05). Fourteen (38%) infections occurred in the Cymbalta Mail Order N group and 16 (50%) in the TS group (P > 0.05). Eight patients (21.6%) in the N group and nine (28%) in the TS group developed SBP (P > 0.05). The rates of liver transplantation (10 vs 13), adverse events (two in each group) and death (13 vs 14) were similar in the two treatment groups.

Molecular modeling and molecular dynamics were performed to investigate the interaction of norfloxacin with the DNA oligonucleotide 5'-d(ATACGTAT)(2). Eight quinolone-DNA binding structures were built by molecular modeling on the basis of experimental results. A 100ps molecular dynamics calculation was carried out on two groove binding models and six partially intercalating models. The resulting average structures were compared with each other and to free DNA structure as a reference. The favorable binding mode of norfloxacin to a DNA substrate was pursued by structural assess including steric hindrance, presence of hydrogen-bonding, non-bonding energies of the complex and presence of abnormal structural distortion. Although two of the intercalative models showed the highest binding energy and the lowest non-bonding interaction energy, they presented structural features which contrast with experimental results. On the other hand, one groove binding model demonstrated the most acceptable structure when the experimental observation was accounted. In this model, hydrogen bonding of the carbonyl and carboxyl group of the norfloxacin rings with the DNA bases was present, and norfloxacin binds to the amine group of the guanine base which protrudes toward the minor groove of B-DNA.
