The effect of a single day treatment with 600 mg norfloxacin 600 mg ofloxacin or 1,920 mg trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol was determined on 114 patients with acute cystitis. The overall clinical efficacy was excellent in 101 patients (89%), moderate in 9 patients (8%) and poor in 4 patients (3%). Recurrence was observed in 8 cases (8%) within 6 weeks after the treatment. The effectiveness rate and the recurrence rate were inferior in those caused by S. epidermidis compared with those caused by E. coli.

One hundred eleven patients with advanced cirrhosis (at least 2 of the following: ascites, severe malnutrition, encephalopathy, or bilirubin >3 mg/dL) and gastrointestinal hemorrhage were randomly treated with oral norfloxacin (400 mg twice daily; n = 57) or intravenous ceftriaxone (1 g/day; n = 54) for 7 days. The end point of the trial was the prevention of bacterial infections within 10 days after inclusion.

Peritonitis in patients with ascites in the absence of secondary causes, such as peforation of a viscus, occurs primarily in patients with end-stage liver disease. Enteric organisms, mainly gram-negative bacilli, probably translocate to regional lymph nodes to produce bacteremia and seeding of ascitic fluid. Signs and symptoms of peritonitis are usually subtle. The ascitic fluid polymorphonuclear leukocyte count is the best determinant for early diagnosis and treatment of SBP. Third-generation cephalosporins such as cefotaxime are considered the drugs of choice for treatment, whereas quinolones such as norfloxacin are used to decrease recurrence.

AM-833 showed potent activity against members of the family Enterobacteriaceae, Neisseria spp., and Haemophilus influenzae and good activity against staphylococci, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Branhamella catarrhalis. Against these bacteria, its activity was roughly comparable to that of norfloxacin and ofloxacin but was slightly less potent than that of ciprofloxacin. This compound also showed good activity against drug-resistant strains such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and gentamicin-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The protective effects of a single oral dose of AM-833 on systemic bacterial infections in mice were greater than those of norfloxacin. AM-833 was as effective as ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin against systemic infections with Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and it showed somewhat higher activity against staphylococcal infections than did the other quinolones. AM-833 exhibited good prophylactic activity against E. coli infections. AM-833 also proved effective against localized infections such acute pneumonia and ascending urinary tract infections in mice. The excellent therapeutic efficacy of AM-833 against these systemic and local infections may be a result of its good oral absorption and high levels in tissues.

The fluoroquinolones have become attractive options as treatment for a broad range of infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria. However, the value of these antibiotics to patients with infections caused by Gram-positive pathogens remains controversial. Experience with quinolones as therapy for skin and skin structure infections, osteomyelitis and peritonitis in patients receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis suggests that the concerns which have been expressed about the use of these agents against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Staphylococcus epidermidis and streptococci are justified; indeed, the frequent emergence of quinolone-resistant strains of MRSA and coagulase-negative staphylococci either during or following treatment is now well documented. The fluoroquinolones should be prescribed with caution to patients with community-acquired pneumonia or whenever severe infection of pneumococcal aetiology is proven or suspected. As prophylaxis for the granulocytopenic patient, quinolones such as norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin have been shown to be effective in reducing the incidence of morbidity attributable to Gram-negative bacteria, but they have not significantly affected the incidence of infection caused by Gram-positive bacteria. In the treatment of febrile episodes in the neutropenic patient, ciprofloxacin, the quinolone investigated most extensively in this clinical setting, produced high cure rates only when it was combined with an antibiotic which was predictably active against Gram-positive organisms. We review here the role of currently-available fluoroquinolones (norfloxacin, enoxacin, pefloxacin, ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin) as treatment for these and other infections.

In vitro drug release showed a typical trend of swelling systems. Precorneal retention tests showed that TRH/NAT microspheres maintained fluorescence in tear fluid for 81.7 min, whereas TRH/GLT microspheres and water solution maintained fluorescence for 51.8 and 22.3 min, respectively. NOR released from microspheres permeated throughout RHC slower (J(s) = 23.08 microg/cm(2)h) than NOR from commercial eye drops (J(s) = 42.77 microg/cm(2)h) used as the control.

A laser flash photolysis investigation was carried out on the mechanism of electron photoejection in fluoroquinolone derivatives, bearing either electron donating or electron accepting substituents in position 8, laser excited at lambda(exc) = 355 nm in neutral aqueous solutions. The dependence of the hydrated electron absorption at 720 nm on the laser intensity and on the presence of N2O as electron scavenger evidenced that in enoxacin, norfloxacin, and lomefloxacin the photoionization is predominantly two-photon. With rufloxacin, besides the two-photon process, a one photon contribution with a quantum yield of 0.034 was measured.

We performed a 5-year retrospective study to evaluate the effect of long-term administration of norfloxacin on the epidemiology of severe hospital-acquired infections in patients with advanced cirrhosis. Sixty-seven episodes of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis and 60 episodes of bacteremia occurred in, respectively, 46 patients (group 1a) and 52 patients (group 1b) who did not receive norfloxacin, while 23 and 17 episodes occurred in 21 patients (group 2a) and 17 patients (group 2b) during or within 10 days after long-term administration of norfloxacin. Enterobacteriaceae were more prevalent in groups 1a and 1b than in the other two groups (P < .001 and P < .01, respectively); conversely, staphylococci were more prevalent in groups 2a and 2b (P < .001 and P < .05, respectively). The rate of staphylococcal resistance to methicillin was 53.6% in groups 1a and 1b and 77.3% in groups 2a and 2b. We conclude that long-term norfloxacin administration to cirrhotic patients reduces the risk of gram-negative infections but increases the risk of severe hospital-acquired staphylococcal infections and of high-level resistance to antibiotics.

A simple and rapid ultrasound-assisted dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (UA-DLLME) coupled with liquid chromatography-ultraviolet detection (LC-UV) was developed for the determination of four fluoroquinolones (ofloxacin, norfloxacin, enrofloxacin, and lomefloxacin) in pharmaceutical wastewater samples. Various parameters affecting the extraction efficiency including type and volume of extraction and dispersive solvents, sample pH, and extraction time were investigated. Good linear relationships were obtained for all analytes in a range of 0.01-2.0 μg/ml with LODs ranged from 0.14 to 0.81 μg/l. Average recoveries at three spiking levels were over the range of 82.7-110.9% with RSD less than 5.2% (n=3). Under the optimized conditions the enrichment factors for the four fluoroquinolones were ranged from 32 to 134 folds. The presented method was applied for the determination of four fluoroquinolones in pharmaceutical wastewater samples.

In order to investigate the comparative activity of agents of the nalidixic acid series, cultures of nalidixic acid sensitive strains of E. coli were exposed to the drugs in an in-vitro model that simulates the hydrokinetic aspects of the treatment of bacterial cystitis. Intrinsic activity, as judged by the response to a single dose of drug and resistance as judged by response to a repeat dose, were investigated. All seven compounds tested in this way were able to inhibit bacterial growth for considerable periods of time even when the peak concentration achieved was as low as 10 mg/l. However, resistance emerged readily, particularly to nalidixic acid, pipemidic acid and piromidic acid. Norfloxacin was the most active of the seven compounds tested and was the only one to which resistance did not emerge at the concentrations tested. However, when two nalidixic acid resistant strains were tested in the bladder model, norfloxacin resistance was observed to emerge with one strain, but not with the other.

The in vitro activities of 20 fluoroquinolones against Mycobacterium leprae were evaluated by using the BACTEC 460 system. M. leprae was incubated in BACTEC 12B medium at 33 degrees C under reduced oxygen for 2 to 3 weeks in the presence of fluoroquinolones at 0.31 to 5 micrograms/ml. Activity was determined by a reduction in 14CO2 evolution compared with that of drug-free controls. Of the commercially available agents, ofloxacin was most active, while enoxacin and norfloxacin were inactive. However, a number of newer fluoroquinolones (AT-4140, OPC-17100, OPC-17066, PD-117596, PD-124816, PD-127391, and WIN-57273), all containing a cyclopropyl group at R-1 and, with the exception of WIN-57273, either a halogen or methyl group at R-8, were more active than ofloxacin in vitro. Further in vivo evaluations of these agents should help determine their potential for use against leprosy.

Forty-one adult women with acute lower urinary tract infections (UTI) were randomly treated for three days with norfloxacin or trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX). Infection was eradicated in 100% of norfloxacin-treated patients and in 95% of TMP/SMX-treated patients. UTI recurred in 29% of patients treated with norfloxacin and in 41% of those treated with TMP/SMX. Post-therapy vaginal administration of lactobacillus suppositories resulted in a recurrence rate of UTI of only 21%, while in patients given sterilized skim-milk suppositories the recurrence rate was 47%. This study indicates that lactobacillus vaginal suppositories are safe and may be effective in reducing the recurrence of UTI following antimicrobial therapy.

The frequencies of isolation and susceptibilities to antimicrobial agents were investigated on 751 bacterial strains isolated from patients with urinary tract infections in 11 hospitals during the period of June 1991 to May 1992. Of the above total bacterial isolates, Gram-positive bacteria accounted for 28.6% and a majority of them were Enterococcus faecalis. Gram-negative bacteria accounted for 71.4% and most of them were Escherichia coli. 1. Enterococcus faecalis Ampicillin (ABPC), imipenem (IPM) and vancomycin (VCM) showed the highest activities against E. faecalis isolated from patients with urinary tract infections. The MIC90s of them were 2 micrograms/ml. Piperacillin (PIPC) and chloramphenicol (CP) were also active with the MIC90s of 8 micrograms/ml. The others were not so active with the MIC90s of 32 micrograms/ml or above. 2. Staphylococcus aureus including MRSA Arbekacin (ABK) showed the highest activities against S. aureus isolated from patients with urinary tract infections. Its MIC90 was 0.5 microgram/ml. VCM was also active with its MIC90 of 1 microgram/ml. The others were not so active with the MIC90s of 32 micrograms/ml or above. 3. Citrobacter freundii Ciprofloxacin (CPFX) showed the highest activities against C. freundii isolated from patients with urinary tract infections. Its MIC90 was 0.5 microgram/ml. IPM, gentamicin (GM), ABK and norfloxacin (NFLX) were also active with the MIC90s of 1 microgram/ml. Penicillins and cephems were not so active. 4. Enterobacter cloacae IPM showed the highest activities against E. cloacae isolated from patients with urinary tract infections. Its MIC90 was 0.5 microgram/ml. CPFX was also active with the MIC90 of 2 micrograms/ml. Aminoglycosides were active comparatively. The MIC90s of them were 4 micrograms/ml. Penicillins and cephems generally showed lower activities. 5. Escherichia coli IPM and ciprofloxacin (CPFX) showed the highest activities against E. coli isolated from patients with urinary tract infections. The MIC90s of them were 0.125 micrograms/ml or below. Flomoxef (FMOX), cefmenoxime (CMX), cefuzonam (CZON), latamoxef (LMOX), norfloxacin (NFLX) and ofloxacin (OFLX) were also active with the MIC90s of 0.25 microgram/ml. Penicillins except mecillinam (MPC) were not so active showing the MIC90s of 32 micrograms/ml or above. 6. Klebsiella pneumoniae IPM showed the highest activities against K. pneumoniae isolated from patients with urinary tract infections. Its MIC90 was 0.25 microgram/ml. Gentamicin (GM) and arbekacin (ABK) were also active with the MIC90s of 0.5 microgram/ml, respectively. But minocycline (MINO) and penicillins were not so active showing the MIC90s of 32 micrograms/ml or above. 7. Proteus mirabilis Most of the agents were active against P. mirabilis.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

A high-performance liquid chromatographic method for the simultaneous determination of ofloxacin, norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin in human hair is described. A reversed-phase C18 column and a fluorescence detector with switching fluorescence wavelengths were used together with solid-phase extraction of the drugs from hair dissolved in 1 M sodium hydroxide. Reproducibility and linearity studies yielded coefficients of variation of 0.2-2.2, 1.4-3.1 and 1.5-3.4%, and correlation coefficients of 1.000, 0.999 and 0.999 within the concentration range 0.3-100 ng/ml for ofloxacin, norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin, respectively. For validation, hair samples were obtained from six subjects who had been taking one or two of the three fluoroquinolones. Assuming a hair growth-rate of 1 cm per month fluoroquinolones could be detected in the hair section(s) that had grown approximately between the dates of drug administration and hair sampling.

The phototoxic fluoroquinolones ofloxacin, lomefloxacin, norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin and BAYy 3118 have ionizable groups with pKa values close to neutrality. Different ionic species of these fluoroquinolones, therefore, partition in various compartments and organelles of living cells according to their ionic equilibria. While all these fluoroquinolones accumulate in lysosomes, they more or less stain the rest of the cytoplasm of living HS 68 fibroblasts. As a result, photosensitized damage to other cytoplasmic sites than lysosomes can also be expected. Using microfluorometry and rhodamine 123 (Rh 123) as a specific fluorescent probe which is released from mitochondria by light absorption, we show that under ultraviolet A (UVA) irradiation norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin readily damage mitochondrial membranes. as evidenced by the UVA dose-dependent strongly accelerated release of Rh 123 from mitochondria in cells treated with norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin. Damages are already noticeable at UVA doses as low as 2 J/cm2. By contrast, no such photoinduced damage can be observed with ofloxacin, lomefloxacin and BAYy 3118, the latter being the most phototoxic derivative towards HS 68 fibroblasts. The initial photodamage induced by norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin can then propagate after the irradiation as shown by the strongly increased rate of release of Rh 123 from mitochondria of cells that have been incubated with these two fluoroquinolones and left in the dark after a pre-irradiation with 18 J/cm2 of UVA. Interestingly, the same pre-irradiation after cells have been treated with BAYy 3118 and lomefloxacin induces similar post-irradiation effects, although they have no apparent immediate photosensitizing action on mitochondria.

Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) O157:H7 infection causes severe clinical symptoms, due to its bacterial toxin, called Shiga-like toxin (SLT). However, little is known about the information to establish a safe and efficient prescription to treat for EHEC O157:H7 patients. Thus, we investigated the effect of SLT-II on intestinal function in rats by using the antibiotic norfloxacin (NFLX) as a model drug. The intestinal clearance (CLi) of NFLX, determined by loop method in the jejunum, was significantly decreased by SLT-II. In histopathological experiment, epithalaxia was observed in SLT-II-treated rats without structural changes of tight junction suggesting the deterioration of active transport systems by SLT-II. CLi of NFLX in normal rats was decreased by carnitine (CAR), suggesting the possible involvement of CAR-sensitive transporter in CLi of NFLX. Taken together, these results suggest that the EHEC O157:H7 infection might affect the intestinal disposition of NFLX due to the changing intestinal expression/function of drug transporters by SLT-II.

Burkina Faso is one of the Subsaharan African nations. No national services for monitoring of antibiotic resistance are available, so the number of reports of resistance patterns among hospital pathogens are inconsistent. In order to evaluate antibiotic resistance, a total of 1998 valuable microrganisms were analysed during 2000 at the Medical Centre St. Camille of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso's capital. They were isolated as follows: 1012 from urine-culture, 503 from tonsil swabs, 398 from pus, 53 from sputum and 32 from blood-cultures. Escherichia coli was the most isolated microrganism from urine (44%); Enterococcus faecalis from tonsil swabs (96.4%), Staphylococcus aureus from pus (17%) and K. pneumoniae (70%) from sputum. In general, resistance to the old antibiotics, such as aminopenicillins and cotrimoxazole was shown. The most active antibiotic was norfloxacin, a rarely used antibiotic in this country. In conclusion, our study shows that it is necessary to create antibiotic-resistance surveillance centers in the developing countries to adopt an accurate therapy to avoid exporting of antibiotic resistance to the developed countries linked to increased emigration.

Bactericidal antibiotics kill by modulating their respective targets. This traditional view has been challenged by studies that propose an alternative, unified mechanism of killing, whereby toxic reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced in the presence of antibiotics. We found no correlation between an individual cell's probability of survival in the presence of antibiotic and its level of ROS. An ROS quencher, thiourea, protected cells from antibiotics present at low concentrations, but the effect was observed under anaerobic conditions as well. There was essentially no difference in survival of bacteria treated with various antibiotics under buy noroxin aerobic or anaerobic conditions. This suggests that ROS do not play a role in killing of bacterial pathogens by antibiotics.

This study examined the susceptibility of a variety of wild-type strains and efflux pump mutants to besifloxacin and the comparator agents sparfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, moxifloxacin, tetracycline, and ethidium bromide. Organisms tested included Staphylococcus aureus (mepA or norA), Streptococcus pneumoniae (pmrA, patB), Escherichia coli (acrAB::Tn903, tolC::Tn10), Haemophilus influenzae (acrAB) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (mepAB-oprM, oprM::ΩHg(r) rpsL). The minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of besifloxacin and comparators were also measured in the presence of the efflux pump inhibitors reserpine, carbonyl cyanide mchlorophenyl- hydrazone, or sodium orthovanadate. Overall, very few meaningful changes (>2-fold) in besifloxacin MIC values resulted from the presence of efflux pump buy noroxin mutations or efflux pump inhibitors. In summary, the novel fluoroquinolone besifloxacin is no exception to the observation that newer fluoroquinolones are generally less affected by efflux pump-mediated resistance than older fluoroquinolones.

Fourty nine Escherichia coli strains, isolated from diarrhoeal and urinary tract infection (UTI) patients, attending Bareilly district hospital, Uttar Pradesh during October to December, 1998 were screened for verotoxin (VT) production by Vero cell assay. Five strains produced characteristic cytopathic effect on Vero cell line, of buy noroxin which 4 were from diarrhoeal and one was from UTI-patient. The level of VT-production varied widely. Antibiotic sensitivity tests revealed that the VT-producing E. coli (VTEC) were mostly sensitive to kanamycin, norfloxacin and nalidixic acid but resistant to ampicillin and tetracycline.

A sequential injection spectrophotometric method for stoichiometric studies, optimization and quantitative determination of ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin was developed. The work is based on the complexation reaction of ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin with iron(III) in sulfuric acid media and a spectrophotometric measurement of absorbances of the corresponding complexes at 447 and 430 nm respectively. The stoichiometries and formation constants were determined. A 1:2 iron(III) to drug mole ratio was found to give the most predominant complexes for both drugs with 5.00 x 10(-3) M H(2)SO(4) and at 0.20 M ionic strength utilizing Job's method and the molar ratio method. A numerical method was utilized for the calculation of the formation constants, the logarithms of which were found to be 7.756 +/- 0.121 and 7.839 +/- 0.056, for ciprofloxacin buy noroxin and norfloxacin respectively. A factorial design together with the all-model-search method was utilized for the optimization of the concentration and aspiration volume of iron(III) as these were the variables which most affected peak absorbance. Working dynamic ranges of 50-500 ppm and 50-400 ppm were obtained for ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin respectively. The method was found to be suitable for the determination of these compounds in pharmaceutical preparations.

An adult male with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, who had been admitted to the hospital for more than one month and had received previous antibiotic therapy, developed Corynebacterium jeikeium septicemia. The organism was isolated in four blood cultures and it was multirresistant, being only sensitive to vancomycin, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and buy noroxin rifampin. The patient improved clinically and was bacteriologically cured with intravenous vancomycin therapy.

The combination of some fluorinated quinolone antimicrobials and certain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as fenbufen, has been reported to elicit serious convulsions in humans. Fluoroquinolones, including norfloxacin (NFLX) and NSAIDs synergistically inhibit GABAA receptors. The mechanism(s) of the synergism, however, at present remains unclear. In the present study, the hypothesis that NFLX and biphenylacetic acid (BPA), an active metabolite of fenbufen, undergo an intermolecular interaction to produce a more potent GABAA antagonist, was investigated by examining the effects of two hybrid molecules of NFLX linked with BPA on GABA-evoked whole cell currents, recorded from rat hippocampal neurons using the perforated-patch clamp technique. Hybrid-1, with a -CONH(CH2)3- chain between NFLX and BPA, inhibited the GABA response more potently than co-treatment with NFLX and BPA. In contrast, hybrid-2 with a -CONH- chain between NFLX and BPA, exhibited only a weak inhibition of the GABA response. The characterization of the inhibition of the GABA response in the presence of hybrid-1 was similar to that of the combination of NFLX and BPA regarding buy noroxin the following: (1) there was a rightward parallel shift of the concentration-response curve of GABA at lower concentrations and a suppression of the maximal response to GABA at higher concentrations; (2) it was voltage-independent; and (3) there was no influence on the reversal potential of the GABA response. These results therefore suggest that NFLX and BPA interact with the GABAA receptor at nearby sites and thus suppress the GABA response.

Application of biosolids to agricultural soils is one of the pathways by which antibiotics can be introduced into agricultural ecosystems. A pot experiment was conducted with repeated soil amendment with biosolids to examine the concentrations of four classes of antibiotics (tetracyclines, sulfonamides, fluoroquinolones, and macrolides) and their dissipation in three different soil types in wheat-rice rotations. Antibiotics accumulate in the soils after repeated application of biosolids. Fluoroquinolones showed stronger accumulation and persistence in the test soils than the other three classes of antibiotics. The maximum residual antibiotic concentration was that of norfloxacin at 155 ± 16 μg kg(-1) in the Typic buy noroxin Hapli-Stagnic Anthrosols (paddy soil). Predicted half-lives were up to 3.69 years, a much longer period than that between biosolid applications (twice each year on average). Antibiotic accumulation followed the rough order fluoroquinolones > tetracyclines > macrolides > sulfonamides, and the sulfonamides were seldom encountered. When biosolid application was suspended, the dissipation rate accelerated. Antibiotic dissipation was slightly slower when biosolids with high heavy metal concentrations were applied and microbial degradation may have been the main mechanism of dissipation. Norfloxacin persistence was positively correlated with its soil adsorption capacity. Cation exchange capacity and soil organic matter content may have vital roles in the soil adsorption of fluoroquinolones. Because of their persistence, the fluoroquinolones must be taken into account in the planning of biosolid applications in agricultural practice.

The activity of six fluoroquinolones (FQs) was determined against 100 methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolated in 2002 along with mutations in the grlA and gyrA genes and in the norA promoter of these isolates. Of the isolates tested, 97% had mutations in grlA and gyrA. A single mutation in grlA and gyrA resulted in a decrease of susceptibility to old generation FQs (norfloxacin, enoxacin, ciprofloxacin, fleroxacin, sparfloxacin and buy noroxin levofloxacin) but not to new generation FQs (gatifloxacin and moxifloxacin). Double mutations of both grlA and gyrA resulted in high-level resistance to all FQs tested. All norA mutants (15%) contained double mutations in grlA and gyrA and showed no decrease of MIC in the presence of reserpine, which is known to inhibit the drug-efflux pump. Our results showed that double mutations in grlA and gyrA were necessary for the expression of high-level resistance to new generation FQs. As different FQ-resistant mutants occur in the same PFGE type, FQ-resistant MRSA may well develop individually.

About 10% of 100 clinical isolates of Enterococcus faecalis were resistant to greater than or equal to 25 micrograms of norfloxacin, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and temafloxacin per ml. In this study, the DNA gyrase of buy noroxin E. faecalis was purified from a fluoroquinolone-susceptible strain (ATCC 19433) and two resistant isolates, MS16968 and MS16996. Strains MS16968 and MS16996 were 64- to 128-fold and 16- to 32-fold less susceptible, respectively, to fluoroquinolones than was ATCC 19433; MICs of nonquinolone antibacterial agents for these strains were almost equal. The DNA gyrase from ATCC 19433 had two subunits, designated A and B, with properties similar to those of DNA gyrase from other gram-positive bacteria such as Bacillus subtilis and Micrococcus luteus. Inhibition of the supercoiling activity of the enzyme from ATCC 19433 by the fluoroquinolones correlated with their antibacterial activities. In contrast, preparations of DNA gyrase from MS16968 and MS16996 were at least 30-fold less sensitive to inhibition of supercoiling by the fluoroquinolones than the gyrase from ATCC 19433 was. Experiments that combined heterologous gyrase subunits showed that the A subunit from either of the resistant isolates conferred resistance to fluoroquinolones. These findings indicate that an alteration in the gyrase A subunit is the major contributor to fluoroquinolone resistance in E. faecalis clinical isolates. A difference in drug uptake may also contribute to the level of fluoroquinolone resistance in these isolates.

Out of the 226 strains of S. typhi isolated over a period of three years 57.9% of them were multidrug resistant. 8.8% of the isolates were sensitive to all the drugs tested. A significant decline in buy noroxin hte number of multidrug resistant strains was observed in this region. Majority of the isolates belonged to phage type E (75.7%) and Biotype 1 (93.8%). All strains isolated were sensitive to ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and ceftriaxone.

Fluoroquinolones inhibit bacteria by interacting with the A subunit of DNA gyrase. Resistance to older agents such as nalidixic acid was due to mutations in the gyrA gene. Resistance to the new fluoroquinolones (e.g., norfloxacin, enoxacin, ofloxacin, pefloxacin, and ciprofloxacin) as a consequence of spontaneous single-step mutation occurs at a low frequency, less than 10(-9), and generally results in a 300-fold lower level of resistance than does the mutation to nalidixic acid resistance. High-level resistance to quinolones can be produced by serial exposure of bacteria to subinhibitory concentrations. Cross-resistance to all quinolones usually occurs. High-level resistance appears to be due to alterations in the A subunit of DNA gyrase and in a simultaneous alteration in permeability that probably is related to a loss of outer-membrane proteins. Organisms resistant to the new quinolones may also be resistant to other antibiotic classes, including beta-lactams. Clinical resistance to the new quinolones has been buy noroxin uncommon and has occurred most often among respiratory pathogens, particularly Pseudomonas aeruginosa from patients with cystic fibrosis and, less frequently, among strains of Serratia marcescens, P. aeruginosa, and Staphylococcus aureus from wound infections. Resistance of urinary or diarrheal isolates has been rare. So far, overall resistance of bacteria to quinolones has not emerged as a major problem, but--like resistance to all other antimicrobial classes--does occur in certain clinical settings.

This study investigated the microbial causes of diarrheal disease among U.S. troops deployed near Alexandria, Egypt, during October 1995. Bacterial causes associated with 19 cases of diarrhea included: enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), 42% (21% heat-stable, 11% heat-labile, and 11% heat-stable/ heat-labile producers); enteropathogenic E. coli (5.3%); and enteroadherent buy noroxin E. coli (42%). Four cases of diarrhea were associated with enteroaggregative E. coli based on probe analysis for enteroaggregative heat-stable enterotoxin 1. Protozoan causes included; Entamoeba histolytica (11%), E. hartmanni (5%), E. nana (5%), Blastocystis hominis (5%), Chilomastix mesnili (11%), Dientamoeba fragilis (5%), Entamoeba coli (5%), and Cryptosporidium (5%). Shigella, Aeromonas, Plesiomonas, Vibrio, Campylobacter, and Salmonella were not detected. Of the eight ETEC cases, one was colonization factor antigen (CFA)/I only, one was both CFA/I and CFA/III, three were CFA/II, two were CFA/IV, and two were CFA-negative. Antibiograms of the ETEC and enteroadherent E. coli strains showed that all isolates were susceptible to norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and nalidixic acid but resistant to ampicillin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, and sulfamethoxazole.

We investigated the in vitro effects of seven fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin, grepafloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, norfloxacin, ofloxacin, and rufloxacin), compared to those of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (SXT) and ceftazidime on total biomass and cell viability of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia biofilm. S. maltophilia attached rapidly to polystyrene, within 2 h of incubation, and then biofilm formation increased over time, reaching maximum growth at 24 h. In the presence of fluoroquinolones at one-half and one-fourth the MIC, biofilm biomass was significantly (P < 0.01) reduced to 55 to 70% and 66 to 76% of original mass, respectively. Ceftazidime and SXT did not exert any activity. Biofilm bacterial viability was significantly reduced by all antibiotics tested at one-half the MIC. At one-fourth the MIC all antibiotics, except levofloxacin, significantly reduced viability. Treatment of preformed biofilms with bactericidal concentrations (500, 100, and 50 micro g/ml) of all fluoroquinolones caused, except for norfloxacin, significant reduction of biofilm biomass to 29.5 to 78.8, 64.1 to 83.6, and 70.5 to 82.8% of original mass, respectively. SXT exerted significant activity at 500 micro g/ml only. Ceftazidime was completely inactive. Rufloxacin exhibited the highest activity on preformed biofilm viability, significantly decreasing viable counts by 0.6, 5.4, and 17.1% at 500, 100, and 50 micro g/ml, respectively. Our results show that (i) subinhibitory (one-half and one-fourth the MIC) concentrations of fluoroquinolones inhibit adherence of S. maltophilia to polystyrene and (ii) Biaxin 1000 Mg clinically achievable concentrations (50 and 100 micro g/ml) of rufloxacin are able to eradicate preformed S. maltophilia biofilm.

To determine the prevalence of quinolone resistance in Salmonella typhimurium Lioresal Baclofen Alcohol strains from humans or animals (cattle, poultry, swine), the S. typhimurium strains isolated at a teaching hospital and at the central veterinary laboratory of the same district between January 1, 1995, and December 31, 1996 were studied. Susceptibility to nalidixic acid was determined using the disk diffusion method. Strains with decreased susceptibility to nalidixic acid were subjected to minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) determination for pefloxacin, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, levofloxacin, and grepafloxacin. Decreased susceptibility to nalidixic acid was demonstrated for 41 of the 309 strains studied and increased from 8.5% in 1995 to 18.6% in 1996. MIC90 values of fluoroquinolones for strains with decreased susceptibility to nalidixic acid were lower than 1 mg/L, which is the cutoff above which a strain is classified as susceptible, but were higher than for strains that were susceptible to nalidixic acid. These low levels of resistance may be the first step in selection of mutant strains with high levels of resistance to fluoroquinolones. This warrants continued monitoring of resistance of Salmonella to fluoroquinolones.

The aim of this study was to characterize quinolone resistance mechanisms in strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae with increased MICs of ofloxacin. These strains were also tested for their susceptibility to a battery of quinolone antimicrobial agents, including gemifloxacin. Of the S. pneumoniae isolates used, 27 were susceptible to ofloxacin, 18 intermediate and 48 resistant (ofloxacin MIC <4, 4 and >4 mg/L, respectively). In general, the ofloxacin-susceptible strains had no amino acid substitutions in GyrA, GyrB, ParC or ParE. Moderate increases in MIC were associated with substitutions in the quinolone resistance-determining region (QRDR) of ParC, while the highest MICs were found for strains that also had substitutions in the QRDR of GyrA. The most common substitutions were Ser79-->Phe in ParC and Ser81-->Phe in GyrA. Other substitutions were identified within the QRDR of ParC and outside the QRDR of ParC and ParE; these did not appear Naprosyn And Alcohol to affect susceptibility. The effects of antimicrobial efflux pumps were studied by determining MICs of a range of quinolones in the presence and absence of reserpine, an inhibitor of Gram-positive efflux pumps. Our results indicated that high-level resistance, caused entirely by efflux, was seen in a minority of ofloxacin-resistant S. pneumoniae strains. Testing the susceptibility of quinolone-resistant strains to gemifloxacin, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, ofloxacin and trovafloxacin revealed that gemifloxacin was least affected by this large variety of resistance mechanisms and was the only quinolone with MICs of < or =0.5 mg/L for all strains in this study. These results suggest that gemifloxacin is highly potent against S. pneumoniae and may also be effective against strains resistant to other quinolones.

All three tested fluoroquinolones were found to be very effective against gram-negative organisms but demonstrated some weakness against certain strains of gram-positive germs, in particular coagulase-negative staphylococci and Streptococcus viridans. These germs, however, were very susceptible to bacitracin and chloramphenicol. The relative Daily Viagra Dosage overall in vitro efficacy was (in decreasing order): chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, norfloxacin, bacitracin, tetracycline, neomycin, erythromycin, tobramycin and gentamicin.

The in vitro effect of pH and Diovan Recommended Dosage glucose concentration on the antibacterial activity of norfloxacin in urine was studied. Norfloxacin effectively inhibited the growth of four gram-negative pathogens in urine in vitro at pH values of 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0. The antibacterial activity of norfloxacin in urine was reduced severalfold at pH 6, but minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) at this pH remained clinically significant. Glucose at concentrations of 200 mg/dl and 400 mg/dl (simulating glucosuria of diabetes) did not significantly affect the antibacterial activity of norfloxacin when tested against clinical isolates of Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, or Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Norfloxacin appears to be a highly effective antibiotic in vitro under conditions which simulate normal and diabetic states.
