A homogenous light-induced chemiluminescence immunoassay was developed using AlphaLISA technology for the detection of chloramphenicol (CAP). This technology is based on two different kinds of bead, namely light-sensitive donor beads and beads containing chemiluminescers, also called acceptor beads. A competitive CAP AlphaLISA method was established using artificial antigen-coated acceptor beads, polyclonal antibodies, biotinylated goat anti-rabbit IgG and streptavidin-coated donor beads.

Epidemiological evidence implicates ultraviolet radiation and genetic changes (e.g., p53 mutations) as important factors in the etiology of nonmelanoma skin cancer. Little is known about a possible role of cutaneous papillomaviruses in these tumors. We previously reported both positive and negative regulation of the promoter activity of a number of HPV types by UV irradiation. To determine the underlying mechanism, we examined the influence of pro-inflammatory cytokines and MAP-kinases induced by UV irradiation by transfecting the HPV 20-URR and the HPV 27-URR into the RKO, HaCaT and H1299 cell lines expressing wild-type or mutated p53 or lacking p53, respectively. IL-1alpha, IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-17, TNF-alpha, as well as interferon-alpha, -beta and -gamma activated the promoter in the HPV 20-URR but inhibited the HPV 27-URR promoter. The effect of IL-1alpha and UV light was abolished by the addition of IL-1 receptor antagonist. UV irradiation induced a prolonged activation of JNK in HaCaT and H1299 but not in RKO cells, and its dephosphorylation was enhanced in the presence of p53 and the HPV-URRs.

Tigecycline exhibited activity against most isolates of the B. fragilis group tested. These results indicate that tigecycline may be useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of infections involving these organisms.

Our findings provided baseline data on Campylobacter among young children. Active surveillance of Campylobacter is needed to better understand the epidemiology and antimicrobial resistance trends of this significant pathogen to help control and protect young children from such infections.

We report that JadX, a protein of previously undetermined function coded for in the jadomycin biosynthetic gene cluster of Streptomyces venezuelae ISP5230, affects both chloramphenicol and jadomycin production levels in blocked mutants. Characterization of recombinant JadX through protein-ligand interactions by chemical shift perturbation and WaterLOGSY NMR spectroscopy resulted in the observation of binding between JadX and a series of jadomycins and between JadX and chloramphenicol, another natural product produced by S. venezuelae ISP5230. These results suggest JadX to be an unusual class of natural product binding protein involved in binding structurally disparate natural products. The ability for JadX to bind two different natural products in vitro and the ability to affect production of these secondary metabolites in vivo suggest a potential role in regulation or signaling. This is the first example of functional characterization of these JadX-like proteins, and provides insight into a previously unobserved regulatory process.

To determine the pattern of resistance among Gram-negative bacilli causing invasive bacterial disease for the antibiotics that are already in common use in Kilifi, Kenya and for two potential alternatives, ciprofloxacin and cefotaxime. Also, to determine whether prevalence and severity of resistance was increasing over time, to identify patients who are particularly at risk of resistant infections, and to explore which factors are associated with the development of resistance in our setting.

Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) distributions of the isolates were determined using the methods of the Clinical and Laboratory Standard Institute and resistance genes detected by PCR.
Pig-house dust originates from feed, bedding, feces, and the animals themselves. If the animals receive drugs such as antibiotics, residues of these substances may occur in manure, in the air, or on surfaces of the respective animal house. In a retrospective study, we investigated dust samples collected during two decades from the same piggery for the occurrence of various antibiotics. In 90% of these samples, we detected up to five different antibiotics, including tylosin, various tetracyclines, sulfamethazine, and chloramphenicol, in total amounts up to 12.5 mg/kg dust. High dust exposure in animal confinement buildings is believed to be a respiratory health hazard because of the high content of microorganisms, endotoxins, and allergens. Further risks may arise from the inhalation of dust contaminated with a cocktail of antibiotics. Apart from that, our data provide first evidence for a new route of entry for veterinary drugs in the environment.
