Fifteen (93.75 per cent) isolates were sensitive to chloramphenicol, 14 (87.5 per cent) were sensitive to cotrimoxazole. All isolates were resistant to nalidixic acid. MICs for ciprofloxacin ranged from 6μg/ml to 15μg/ml and corresponding zone diameters ranged from 15mm to 26mm. MIC and zone diameters for ciprofloxacin had significant negative correlation. MICs for azithromycin ranged from 3μg/ml to 24μg/ml, corresponding zone diameters ranged from 13mm to 19mm. However, MIC and zone diameters for azithromycin had no significant negative correlation.

Of 1835 cases of rectal chlamydia diagnosed in the study period, 1480 (81%) were treated with azithromycin or doxycycline without a second drug active against Chlamydia trachomatis. Of these, 407 (33%) of 1231 azithromycin-treated men and 95 (38%) of 249 doxycycline-treated men were retested 14 to 180 days after treatment (P = 0.12); 88 (22%) and 8 (8%), respectively, had persistent/recurrent infection (P = 0.002). Persistent/recurrent infection was higher among men treated with azithromycin compared with doxycycline at 14 to 30 days (4/53 [8%] vs. 0/20 [0%]), 14 to 60 days (23/136 [17%] vs. 0/36 [0%]), and 14 to 90 days (50/230 [22%] vs. 2/56 [4%]). In multivariate analysis, azithromycin-treated men had a significantly higher risk of persistent/recurrent infection in the 14 to 90 days (adjusted relative risk, 5.2; 95% confidence interval, 1.3-21.0) and 14 to 180 days (adjusted relative risk, 2.4; 95% confidence interval, 1.2-4.8) after treatment.

Retrospective cohort study of patients using warfarin who initiated an antibiotic (azithromycin, levofloxacin, or trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX)) or terazosin for clinical indications between January 1998 and December 2002. The incidence of international normalized ratio (INR) elevation and the degree of change and bleeding events after institution of either medication type was recorded.
The most commonly prescribed antibiotic regimens were azithromycin 500 mg QD, amoxicillin 500 mg TID, and levofloxacin 500 mg QD, accounting for 58% of the prescriptions. Varied doses of these agents, plus gatifloxacin, amoxicillin-clavulanate, moxifloxacin, and cefaclor made up the remaining regimens. Utilizing aggressive pharmacodynamic exposure targets, the only regimens to achieve greater than 90% CFR against all three pathogens were amoxicillin/amoxicillin-clavulanate 500 mg TID (> 91%), gatifloxacin 400 mg QD (100%), and moxifloxacin 400 mg QD (100%). Considering S. pneumoniae isolates alone, azithromycin 1000 mg QD also achieved greater than 90% CFR (91.3%).
Ninety-two periodontitis subjects were randomly assigned to receive SRP alone or combined with azithromycin, metronidazole or sub-antimicrobial dose doxycycline. Subgingival plaque samples taken at baseline, 2 weeks, and 3, 6, and 12 months were analyzed for 40 bacterial species using checkerboard DNA-DNA hybridization. Percentage of resistant species and percentage of sites harboring species resistant to the test antibiotics were determined at each time-point.

Oxacillin resistance was present in 99 of 277 (36%) consecutive Staphylococcus aureus isolates collected from hospital patients in Tehran during a 15-month period (January 2004-March 2005). The majority of isolates (77/99 = 78%) had been cultured from wounds or blood. The staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) types and antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of 99 methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains were determined. Disk diffusion and agar dilution methods were used to determine the susceptibility of isolates to antimicrobial agents as instructed by Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute. The presence of mecA and SCCmec types was determined by PCR and multiplex PCR. All MRSA isolates were susceptible to vancomycin (MIC90

Three years after the introduction of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine for universal administration to children less than 2 in Massachusetts, a significant increase in invasive disease due to serotype 19A was observed. Although MLST 199 remains the most frequent sequence type among invasive isolates (of 19A), a multidrug-resistant sequence type, not previously identified in Massachusetts, has become an important cause of invasive disease. Further surveillance of the changing ecology of S. pneumoniae is necessary as a 4-year time period is not sufficient to fully evaluate the impact of PCV of pneumococcal infections.
Telithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic that has been marketed since the early 2000s. It has not been shown to be more effective against any bacteria than other macrolide antibiotics. Its antibacterial activity is in no way remarkable. In early 2014, we reviewed its adverse effect profile using data from periodic safety update reports, drug regulatory agencies, and detailed published case reports. In addition to the adverse effect profile telithromycin shares with the other macrolides, it provokes several specific adverse effects: visual disturbances due to impaired accommodation; taste and smell disorders; severe liver damage; worsening of myasthenia gravis; rhabdomyolysis; and loss of consciousness. Prolongation of the QT interval with standard oral doses is a worrisome adverse effect. In practice, it is better not to use telithromycin as it exposes patients to disproportionate, serious adverse effects. When treatment with a macrolide antibiotic appears necessary, it is prudent to choose a different macrolide, such as spiramycin or azithromycin, which have fewer adverse effects.

NVT caused 72%-91% of invasive pneumococcal disease annually in children less than 5 years of age between 2002 and 2005. Serotype 19A has emerged as the most frequent cause of IPD in Massachusetts. A multidrug-resistant clone (ceftriaxone, amoxicillin, azithromycin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole) (MLST 320) was first identified in Massachusetts in 2005.
GAS survived intracellularly despite exposure of the GAS-containing epithelial cells to penicillin. In contrast, there was killing of ingested GAS after exposure of epithelial cells to either erythromycin or azithromycin. Electron microscopy confirmed a lack of intracellular GAS fragmentation (cell death) after exposure of epithelial cells to penicillin in contrast to obvious GAS fragmentation after epithelial cell exposure to erythromycin or azithromycin. Cephalothin, a cephalosporin, and clindamycin were more effective in killing ingested GAS than was penicillin, but they were less effective than erythromycin or azithromycin.
