The in vitro susceptibility of 513 recent anaerobic clinical isolates was evaluated against meropenem (SM-7338), a new carbapenem, and six other antibiotics. Virtually all Gram-positive and Gram-negative anaerobic bacteria tested were susceptible to meropenem (defined as MICs less than or equal to 8 micrograms/ml) with 99.8% of the isolates inhibited by less than or equal to 4 micrograms/ml. The activity of meropenem was comparable to imipenem for most clinical isolates. Minor differences were observed for Clostridium and Veillonella (meropenem more active) and other Gram-positive bacilli (imipenem more active). Meropenem inhibited all anaerobes resistant to clindamycin and metronidazole. Bactericidal tests performed with meropenem demonstrated killing activity against all isolates except Clostridium and Lactobacillus.

Many health care professionals use antibiotic prophylaxis strategies to prevent infection after surgery. This practice is under debate since it enhances the spread of antibiotic resistance. Another important reason to avoid nonessential use of antibiotics, the impact on our microbiome, has hardly received attention. In this study, we assessed the impact of antibiotics on the human microbial ecology at two niches. We followed the oral and gut microbiomes in 66 individuals from before, immediately after, and up to 12 months after exposure to different antibiotic classes. The salivary microbiome recovered quickly and was surprisingly robust toward antibiotic-induced disturbance. The fecal microbiome was severely affected by most antibiotics: for months, health-associated butyrate-producing species became strongly underrepresented. Additionally, there was an enrichment of genes associated with antibiotic resistance. Clearly, even a single antibiotic treatment in healthy individuals contributes to the risk of resistance development and leads to long-lasting detrimental shifts in the gut microbiome.

The enterococci are emerging as a significant cause of hospital acquired infections. The pathogenesis of enterococci is attributed to the production of virulence factors and resistance to antibiotics. The purpose of the study was to assess the prevalence of genes encoding virulence factor, antimicrobial resistance determinant and molecular characteristic of enterococci isolated from burn patients. A total of 57 enterococci isolated from wound specimens of patients with burn injury were characterized by phenotypic and genotypic methods. The efaA was the most frequently detected gene (100%), followed by ace (89.1%), asa1 (54.3%), gelE (50%), cylA (30.4%), esp (23.9%) and hyl (8.7%) among Enterococcus faecalis isolates. The Enterococcus faecium strains carried asa1 and ace genes. All isolates were susceptible to tigecycline and vancomycin. Inducible resistance to clindamycin was not observed and 64% of isolates had resistance to erythromycin. High-level gentamicin resistance (HLGR) was seen in 65.2% of E. faecalis strains. The aac(6')-Ie-aph(2″)-Ia gene was found in 47.8% of E. faecalis isolates. Our data indicated that the efaA, ace and asa1 were most frequent genes encoding virulence factors among Enterococci isolated from burn wound infection and the incidence of virulence factor genes was higher in E. faecalis rather than other isolates. The molecular analysis demonstrated high genetic diversity among Enterococcus populations from burn patients.

Nineteen erythromycin-susceptible, clindamycin-resistant S. agalactiae isolates from New Zealand were studied. MICs of macrolide, lincosamide and streptogramin antibiotics were determined. Clindamycin and streptogramin resistance genes were searched for by PCR. Isolates were compared by serotyping and by DNA macrorestriction patterns determined by PFGE. Conjugative transfer of resistance traits to recipient strains of S. agalactiae and Enterococcus faecium was assayed.

Nineteen cases of cerebral toxoplasmosis (CTOX) are reported from a group of Edinburgh AIDS patients. All patients were severely immunodeficient at the time of presentation with CD4 count < 50 cells/mm3. Thirteen patients had suffered a previous AIDS-defining illness. In Edinburgh, CTOX has developed in 48% of patients who are seropositive for toxoplasma and have a CD4 count < 50 cells/mm3. It is estimated that at least half of the toxoplasma seropositive patients will develop CTOX if they survive for 21 months after reaching a time in their illness when the CD4 count = 50 cells/mm3. The incidence of CTOX in toxoplasma-seronegative patients with a CD4 count < 50 cells/mm3 is 1.3%. All patients showed improvement on treatment and there was no correlation between clinical or radiological features and patient survival. Those patients unable to tolerate first choice anti-toxoplasma therapy had a significantly shorter survival than the remainder but there was no single therapeutic regimen which conferred a survival advantage. Eighteen patients had died at the time of study and the median survival following diagnosis of cerebral toxoplasmosis was 10 months (range 3-38 months). Postmortem examination of the brain was available in 8, 4 of whom had concomitant cerebral lymphoma. The survival from AIDS or CD4 count = 50 cells/mm3 did not differ significantly between those with treated CTOX and a control group who had no toxoplasma infection, suggesting that treatment is reasonably effective. CTOX is a disease associated with severe HIV-related immunodeficiency and, in those with a CD4 count < 50 cells/mm3, occurs more than 35 times as frequently in toxoplasma-seropositive than toxoplasma-seronegative patients. Treatment is effective but the outcome of treated disease cannot be predicted from presenting clinical or radiological features. Concomitant space-occupying cerebral pathology is evident in 50% of post-mortem examinations.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections are becoming increasingly prevalent in both community and hospital settings. Certain strains are notorious for causing skin and soft tissue infections in patients with no established risk factors. In this article, we report our findings on the dynamic antibiotic resistance pattern of MRSA and outpatient prescription trend for skin and soft tissue infections within our community.

Metronidazole (Flagl), a compound widely used in man with minimal side-effects, has been used in the treatment of anaerobic infections caused by Bacteroides fragilis and other Bacteroides species. Seven patients were treated and all were restored to full health. Four of them did not respond to lincomycin or clindamycin which so far have been the drugs of choice against anaerobic infections. The reasons for the good results during metronidazole therapy such as the good penetration through the blood/brain barrier and into abscess cavities are discussed.

Thermotolerant Campylobacter spp. are frequent causes of diarrhoea in humans worldwide mostly originating from poultry. It has been suggested that extensive veterinary use of antibiotics is largely responsible for resistance in human isolates. During a 4-month period from January to April 2004, 192 Campylobacter spp. were isolated from fecal samples of 485 healthy food animals. The in vitro susceptibility to 12 antibiotics was determined by the agar disk diffusion method. Among the 192 Campylobacter spp. isolated, 135 (70.3%) were identified to be C. jejuni, 51 (26.6%) were C. coli and 6 (3.1%) were C. lari. C. jejuni was the most prevalent species in chickens (80.8%) versus 16.2% C. coli and 3.0% C. lari. All isolates found in pigs were C. coli. All strains were sensitive to chloramphenicol and ciprofloxacin and all were resistant to cephalothin. More than 90% of the strains were sensitive to clindamycin, erythromycin, gentamicin, nalidixic acid, norfloxacin, streptomycin and tetracycline. Resistance was found against ampicillin in 20% and trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole in 37.5%. Resistance was not statistically different among C. jejuni, C. coli and C. lari (p>0.05). Multidrug resistance to two or more drugs was detected in 14.5% of strains. In conclusion, the study showed that antimicrobial resistance is found only at relatively low frequencies for most antimicrobial agents tested except for ampicillin and trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole. The low percentages of resistance to most antimicrobial agents tested in this study may be the result of low/no usage of these agents as a growth promoters or treatment in the Ethiopian animal farm setting. The detection of multidrug resistant isolates may pose a threat to humans and further limits therapeutic options.

The objective of this study was to determine the rate of contamination by Staphylococcus aureus in 100 meat samples obtained during 2011-2012 in La Rioja (Northern Spain), to analyze their content in antimicrobial resistance and virulence genes, as well as in immune evasion cluster (IEC) genes, and to type recovered isolates. Seven of 100 samples (7%) contained S. aureus: 6 samples harbored methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) and 1 pork sample harbored methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA). The MRSA isolate corresponded to the ST398 genetic lineage with a multidrug resistance profile and the absence of human IEC genes, which pointed to a typical livestock-associated MRSA profile. MRSA isolate was ascribed to the spa-type t011, agr-type I, and SCCmec-V and showed resistance to erythromycin, clindamycin, tetracycline, and streptomycin, in addition to β-lactams. The remaining six MSSA strains belonged to different sequence types and clonal complexes (three isolates ST45/CC45, one ST617/CC45, one ST5/CC5, and one ST109/CC9), being susceptible to most antibiotics tested but showing a wide virulence gene profile. Five of the six MSSA strains (except ST617/CC45) contained the enterotoxin egc-cluster or egc-like-cluster genes, and strain ST109/CC9 contained eta gene (encoding exfoliatin A). The presence of human IEC genes in MSSA strains (types B and D) points to a possible contamination of meat samples from an undefined human source. The presence of S. aureus with enterotoxin genes and MRSA in food samples might have implications in public health. The IEC system could be a good marker to follow the S. aureus contamination source in meat food products.

In the present study, the Prevotella species are the most frequently isolated obligate anaerobes from periodontal abscesses. The current results show their alarmingly high resistance rate against clindamycin and roxithromycin; thus, the use of these antibiotics is unacceptable for the empirical therapy of periodontal abscesses. A brief prevalence of four resistance genes in the anaerobic bacteria that were isolated was also demonstrated.
