Dans cette étude, on étudie la sensibilité des germes gram positifs causant des mammites, tels que S. aureus, Str. uberis, Str. dysgalactiae, E. faecalis und L. garviae, vis à vis d'une part d'antibiotiques à signification thérapeutique et, dautre part, vis à vis d'antibiotiques d'importance épidémiologique et d'antibiotiques de réserve en médecine humaine. On constate le plus souvent des résistances face à la pénicilline chez S. aureus mais environ 5 % des souches de Str. uberis présentaient également une sensibilité réduite à cet antibiotique. On a en outre constaté des résistances face aux aminoglycosides et aux macrolides. L'identification de S.aureus résistants à la méthicilline (MRSA) et d'un Str. dysgalactiae résistant à la ciprofloxacine démontre que les germes de mammites développent des résistances face aux antibiotiques de réserve importants ainsi que l'importance de la réalisation d'un antibiogramme avant un traitement antibiotique. Une surveillance de la situation de résistance et une interprétation des résultats des antibiogrammes sont indispensables pour effectuer un traitement antibactérien ciblé pour éviter l'utilisation inutile d'antibiotiques de nouvelle génération.
Out of thirty-eight patients, eighteen were males and 20 were females. Mean duration of diabetes was 9.92 +/- 5.5 years (Range 4-16) while that of hypertension was 7.87 +/- 3.66 years (Range = 2-15). HbAlc level was 8.36% +/- 1.93% (range 6.3 - 12.3). Thirty-one (81.5%) patients had HbA1c level 8.0% or above indicating a poor control. At 6 months of follow up best corrected distant visual acuity of 6/6 to 6/9 was achieved in 23(60.5 %), 6/12 in 11(28.9%) and 6/24 in 4(10.5%) cases while best corrected near acuity of N/6 was achieved in 22 (57.8%) N/8 in 12 (31.4%) and N/12 in 4 (10.5%) cases. At 6 months follow up visual acuity declined in two cases because of uncontrolled diabetes and hypertension.

A total of 20 samples of frozen ready to cook food of animal origin were purchased from different separate grocery stores in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Bacteria were isolated and identified based on the basis of biochemical properties.
CD nanocapsules can be used as an efficient drug delivery system to treat intraphagosomal pathogens, especially Salmonella infection. This delivery system might be used effectively for other vacuolar pathogens including Mycobacteria, Brucella and Legionella.

A high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method with fluorescence detection was developed for the simultaneous determination of 11 quinolones (QNs) (norfloxacin, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, pefloxacin, lomefloxacin, danofloxacin, enrofloxacin, sarafloxacin, difloxacin, oxolinic acid and flumequine) residues in chicken muscle. The chicken muscle samples were extracted by 10% trichioroacetic acid/acetonitrile (7:3, v/v) twice, diluted and cleaned up by a reversed-phase solid-phase extraction (SPE) cartridge. The QNs were separated on a reversed-phase C18 column (Hypersil BDS-C18) with mobile phase gradient elution (acetonitrile and water as mobile phases) and detected by a fluorescence detector with a wavelength program. The linear ranges of quinolone calibrations were 5-1200 microg/L in chicken muscle with the correlation coefficients more than 0.998. The recoveries for chicken muscle fortified with 11 QNs at three levels were 56%-119% with acceptable intra-batch relative standard deviations (RSD) (0.4%-16.1%) and inter-batch RSD (1.4%-23.0%). The limits of detection (LOD) and limits of quantification (LOQ) were 1-23 microg/kg and 4-40 kg/kg for the 11 QNs, respectively. The sensitivity meets the quantification requirements for the residue analysis.

To evaluate the current prevalence of the three clonal groups O25b:H4-B2-ST131, O15:H1-D-ST393 and CGA-D-ST69 (where ST stands for sequence type) among Escherichia coli isolates causing extraintestinal infections in Spain and to characterize their virulence background, 500 consecutive non-duplicate E. coli isolates causing extraintestinal infections were analysed.

Infections caused by multidrug resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae have been increasingly reported in many parts of the world. A total of 93 Malaysian multidrug resistant K. pneumoniae isolated from patients attending to University of Malaya Medical Center, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 2010-2012 were investigated for antibiotic resistance determinants including extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs), aminoglycoside and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole resistance genes and plasmid replicons. CTX-M-15 (91.3%) was the predominant ESBL gene detected in this study. aacC2 gene (67.7%) was the most common gene detected in aminoglycoside-resistant isolates. Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole resistance (90.3%) was attributed to the presence of sul1 (53.8%) and dfrA (59.1%) genes in the isolates. Multiple plasmid replicons (1-4) were detected in 95.7% of the isolates. FIIK was the dominant replicon detected together with 13 other types of plasmid replicons. Conjugative plasmids (1-3 plasmids of ~3-100 kb) were obtained from 27 of 43 K. pneumoniae isolates. An ESBL gene (either CTX-M-15, CTX-M-3 or SHV-12) was detected from each transconjugant. Co-detection with at least one of other antibiotic resistance determinants [sul1, dfrA, aacC2, aac(6')-Ib, aac(6')-Ib-cr and qnrB] was noted in most conjugative plasmids. The transconjugants were resistant to multiple antibiotics including β-lactams, gentamicin and cotrimoxazole, but not ciprofloxacin. This is the first study describing the characterization of plasmids circulating in Malaysian multidrug resistant K. pneumoniae isolates. The results of this study suggest the diffusion of highly diverse plasmids with multiple antibiotic resistance determinants among the Malaysian isolates. Effective infection control measures and antibiotic stewardship programs should be adopted to limit the spread of the multidrug resistant bacteria in healthcare settings.
There was very little good quality evidence. Four studies were included, all of them investigating different interventions and therefore a meta-analysis was not possible.Only one study demonstrated a significant difference. Oral amoxicillin clavulanate was compared to placebo in 79 patients. The odds of having a discharge persisting eight days after starting treatment was 0.19 (95% CI 0.07 to 0.49) . The number needed to treat to achieve that benefit is 2.5. Participants in both arms of this study also received daily aural toilet. The results will therefore not be applicable to most settings including primary care. No significant benefit was shown in the two studies investigating steroids (oral prednisolone with oral amoxicillin clavulanate and topical dexamethasone with topical ciprofloxacin ear drops), or the one study comparing an antibiotic-steroid combination (Otosporin®) drops versus spray (Otomize®) (although more patients preferred the spray form).

Sixty-four patients were enrolled in the study. Seven patients were excluded from the per-protocol analysis due to major deviations from the protocol. Per-protocol analysis (n = 57) showed that cure was achieved in all the patients (P = 1.000). No significant differences were found between groups for symptomatic relief, resolution of otic discharge, or onset of pain reduction. Both treatments were found to be highly efficacious and safe, demonstrating the noninferiority of the experimental drug.

An increased frequency of Proteus mirabilis isolates resistant to expanded-spectrum cephalosporins was observed recently in a long-term care facility in Zagreb (Godan). The aim of this study was the molecular characterization of resistance mechanisms to new cephalosporins in P. mirabilis isolates from this nursing home.

Little evidence is available on the pharmacokinetics of antituberculous medication in premature infants. We report rifampicin (RMP) pharmacokinetics in an extremely premature, low-birthweight female infant born to a mother with known miliary tuberculosis. Intravenous RMP, isoniazid (INH), ciprofloxacin and amikacin were used, as the enteral route was not possible. Area under the curve calculations revealed low average RMP concentrations at doses of 5-10 mg/kg. We review the literature with regard to the dosing regimen and therapeutic drug levels of RMP and INH in premature infants and discuss issues of management. Evidence from this case suggests 10 mg/kg/day is the minimum dose required.
