Microdilution trays (Sensititre) for antimicrobial susceptibility testing of Bacteroides fragilis has been compared for accuracy with the standard agar dilution method. The microtrays were found to be reliable for all antimicrobials tested (benzylpenicillin, clindamycin, doxycycline, chloramphenicol, fusidic acid, cefoxitin, and cephalotin) but not for metronidazole.

The prevalence of macrolide resistance in GAS is low in Ankara; therefore, routine antimicrobial susceptibility testing against these agents seems unwarranted.

Although it has recently been used, telithromycin has a high percentage of resistance; its use for methicillin-resistant staphylococcal strains, therefore, should be limited. Daptomycin and quinupristin/dalfopristin were found to be effective against MRSA and MRCNS strains and were concluded to be a good choice in the treatment of methicillin-resistant staphylococci.

In vitro/in vivo evaluations of intravitreal implants fabricated from the physiological lipid, glyceride tripalmitate containing clindamycin phosphate as a model drug was performed. The micro-implants with average diameter of 0.4 mm were fabricated via a hot melt extrusion method. The extrudates were analyzed using scanning electron microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, and in vitro drug dissolution studies. For biocompatibility, the implants were implanted into rabbit eyes. Clinical investigations including fundus observations, electroretinography as well as histological evaluations were performed.

One hundred fifty-six patients with presumed or documented abdominal infections were treated with amikacin/metronidazole/placebo (Group 1, 56 patients), amikacin/clindamycin/placebo (Group 2, 57 patients), or amikacin/clindamycin/ampicillin (Group 3, 43 patients) to determine both the therapeutic efficacy of the various regimens and the type of complications due to Clostridium difficile. C. difficile diarrhea occurred in 15 of 156 patients (9.6%), and C. difficile colonization occurred in 14 of 156 patients (9%) during treatment and 30 days of follow-up. The number of C. difficile diarrhea cases in Group 1 (3 of 56) was significantly lower than in Group 2 (9 of 57, p less than 0.05), but not in Group 3 (3 of 43). Exclusion of all patients who received other antibiotics in the 30-day poststudy period revealed no C. difficile diarrhea or colonization in Group 1 (0 of 13) and an acquisition rate of 31% (14 of 45) with the regimens containing clindamycin (p less than 0.02). Successful treatment outcomes (106 evaluable patients) were not statistically different among the three groups (Group 1, 64%; Group 2, 76%; and Group 3, 88%), but these data were difficult to interpret because, by chance, significantly more patients in Group 1 had bacteremia at entry (p less than 0.01), and patients in Group 3 had significantly more biliary tract infections (p less than 0.02) and significantly more favorable acute physiology scores (p less than 0.05). Use of metronidazole can reduce complications related to C. difficile, particularly if additional antimicrobials other than aminoglycosides are avoided.

Clostridium difficile remains the leading cause of nosocomially acquired diarrhoea. C. difficile usually exhibits resistance against beta-lactam antibiotics, whereas susceptibility to other drugs may vary. This study investigated the antimicrobial susceptibility of C. difficile to different antibiotics over a period of time and characterizes molecular mechanisms for resistance. One hundred and seventy-three toxigenic and 19 non-toxigenic C. difficile strains, recovered from patients in two university hospitals in Germany between 1986 and 2001, were investigated for their susceptibility to erythromycin, clindamycin, moxifloxacin, vancomycin and metronidazole employing the Etest. The genetic background for resistance was analysed using PCR and DNA sequencing. All strains were susceptible to vancomycin and metronidazole. Resistance to erythromycin, clindamycin and moxifloxacin was found in 27%, 36% and 12% of the tested strains, respectively. High-level resistance (MIC > 128 mg/L) against erythromycin and clindamycin was detected in 25% of the strains tested. Thirty-four of the macrolide-lincosamide-streptogramin B (MLS(B))-resistant strains carried the erythromycin resistance methylase gene. The results indicate an increase in the prevalence of resistance to MLS(B) and fluoroquinolone antibiotics in C. difficile. Fluoroquinolone resistance is associated with resistance to MLS(B) antimicrobials.
In 1995, changes in our hospital formulary were made to limit an outbreak of vancomycin-resistant enterococci and resulted in decreased usage of cephalosporins, imipenem, clindamycin, and vancomycin and increased usage of beta-lactam/beta-lactamase-inhibitor antibiotics. In this report, the effect of this formulary change on other resistant pathogens is described. Following the formulary change, there was a reduction in the monthly number (mean +/- SD) of patients with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (from 21.9 +/- 8.1 to 17.2 +/- 7.2 patients/1,000 discharges; P = .03) and ceftazidime-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (from 8.6 +/- 4.3 to 5.7 +/- 4.0 patients/1,000 discharges; P = .02). However, there was an increase in the number of patients with cultures positive for cefotaxime-resistant Acinetobacter species (from 2.4 +/- 2.2 to 5.4 +/- 4.0 patients/1,000 discharges; P = .02). Altering an antibiotic formulary may be a possible mechanism to contain the spread of selected resistant pathogens. However, close surveillance is needed to detect the emergence of other resistant pathogens.

Staphylococcus species are the most common organisms responsible for infection following implantable cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) diversionary procedures. The role of an antibiotic-impregnated shunt (AIS) system in the prevention of shunt infection has remained unclear because no human clinical trial has been reported on thus far. In this study, the authors assess an AIS system with respect to its prevention of shunt infection.

In an attempt to inhibit the biosynthesis of the type-specific M protein usually expressed on surface fimbriae group A Streptococcus pyogenes delta 2305 was cultivated in Todd-Hewitt broth containing 10% human serum and subinhibitory concentrations of either josamycin, erythromycin or clindamycin. Electron microscopy revealed that the antibiotic-pretreatment had little visible effect on the surface structures of the streptococci. However, josamycin and clindamycin-pretreated bacteria adhered less to hydrophobic gels than erythromycin-pretreated or untreated control cultures. Due to the decrease in surface hydrophobicity, the drug-pretreated bacteria also activated complement more readily and fixed more C3 on their surface. Consequently the killing of josamycin and clindamycin-pretreated bacteria by polymorphonuclear leucocytes was significantly enhanced. Similar findings were obtained when the M protein was removed from the bacteria by digestion with trypsin. These results suggest that josamycin, like clindamycin, reverses the capacity of group A streptococci to resist opsonization by normal human serum and interferes with the adhesion of the organisms to host epithelial cell surfaces.

Two hundred and fifty patients were admitted to a prospective randomized trial of single dosage prophylaxis against wound infection after appendicectomy. There were 12 exclusions, 72 patients received placebo, 81 received 600 mg i.m. clindamycin phosphate and 85 received 1 1 g i.m. cefazolin sodium, the agent being given in the anaesthetic room. Clindamycin produced a significant reduction in the overall rate of wound infection from 33 per cent in the controls to 17 per cent. In cases with a gangrenous or perforated appendix the infection rate in controls was 78 per cent; this was reduced to 44 per cent by a single dose of clindamycin. Cefazolin significantly reduced the number of aerobic organisms isolated from wound infections, but did not significantly reduce the incidence of wound infection. We conclude that anaerobic organisms are more important than faecal aerobic organisms in the pathogenesis of wound infection after appendicectomy.

We analysed data from the Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Network (ARS). We included in the analysis the first isolate of S. aureus per patient and year, which had a valid test result for oxacillin resistance and which was not a screening sample. We limited the analysis to isolates from facilities, which contributed to ARS for all six years between 2010 and 2015. We compared the proportion of methicillin resistance among S. aureus isolates by calendar year using Chi-square and Fisher's exact test. We corrected for multiple testing using the Bonferroni correction. We stratified the analysis by sample type including various non-invasive sample types and by type of care (e.g. hospital versus outpatient clinic). We also analysed the non-susceptibility of MRSA to selected antibiotics.
