Antibiotic use in infection with Shiga-toxin-producing strains of Escherichia coli (E coli) is thought to increase the risk of developing haemolytic-uraemic syndrome (HUS). One paediatric study concluded that E coli O157:H7-infected patients who had received antibiotic therapy were 17 times more likely to progress to HUS than those who had not. Quinolones are among those incriminated. In vitro experiments suggest toxin induction of 80-fold with ciprofloxacin and E coli O104:H4. We report here the case of a 44-year-old man returning from Hamburg who presented with a 5 day history of bloody diarrhoea which had worsened after starting ciprofloxacin. A severe illness of overlapping HUS and thrombotic thrombocytopaenic purpura (TTP) ensued, with neurological complications requiring ventilation and intensive care admission. Stool sample eventually confirmed E coli O104:H4. Although the patient made a good recovery following treatment with haemofiltration and plasma exchange with fresh frozen plasma (FFP), ciprofloxacin may have exacerbated his clinical course.

MRSA isolates from Turkish hospitals were multiresistant to antimicrobials. Quinolone and gentamycin resistance levels were high and macrolide and lincosamide resistance were relatively low. Susceptibility rates for fusidic asid were high. Linezolide and vancomycin resistance are not emerged. The most common resistance genes were ermA, tetM and aac-aph. Evolution of antimicrobial susceptibilities and resistance genes profiles of MRSA isolates should be surveyed at regional and national level for accurate treatment of patients and to control dissemination of resistance genes.
Characteristics of the clinical process of staphylococcal endocarditis in 115 inpatients and the adequacy of various regimens for their antibiotic therapy within a period of 10 years were analysed. Four clinical criteria for prognosis of staphylococcal endocarditis were determined: intravenous narcomania, splenomegalia, leukocytosis and hemorrhagic skin eruption. The analysis of the Russian and foreign findings showed that the use of betalactams (oxacillin, the 1st and 3rd generation cephalosporins) and lincomycin provided the adequate therapy resulting in eradication of the pathogen in case of oxacillin resistant staphylococci, whereas the use of ciprofloxacin and vancomycin was inexpedient. In case of MRSA it was recommended to use vancomycin and in case of endocarditis due to S. aureus with intermediate resistance to vancomycin (VISA, MIC > 0.5 mcg/ml) the use of linezolid was recommended.

In our hospital, septic arthritis is primarily acute, monoarticular, and monomicrobial; affects higher joints, is caused by S. aureus, and occurs in adult patients with underlying diseases. Outcome is good in most patients, although more than 25% of cases had articular sequels.

It is concluded that fosfomycin and nitrofurantoin are appropriate empirical therapy for community-acquired UTI empirical therapy, but the fluoroquinolones and the TMP-SXT shall not be used in the emprical treatment of UTI at this stage. In conclusion, as resistance rates show regional differences, it is necessary to regularly examine regional resistance rates to determine the appropriate empiric antibiotic treatment and national antibiotic usage policies must be reorganized according to data obtained from these studies.

The prevalence of MRSA was found to be range from moderate (21%) to high (45%) among the centres with an overall prevalence of 37.3%. High prevalence of resistance was observed with commonly used antimicrobials such as ciprofloxacin and erythromycin in all the centres. Resistance to LNZ was not encountered except for a single case. Full-blown resistance to VAN in S. aureus was not observed; however, a few VAN-intermediate S. aureus isolates were documented. The most common species of coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) identified was Staphylococcus haemolyticus and Staphylococcus epidermidis. Resistance among CoNS was relatively higher than S. aureus. Most phenotypically resistant organisms possessed the corresponding resistance genes.

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.

Experimental research.785 specimens obtained from children below the age of 14 in Beijing Tongren Hospital during 1999 to 2004 were cultured and identified for bacterium, fungus and Acanthamoeba respectively at Beijing Institute of Ophthalmology. Microbial culture-positive rate, susceptibility patterns and the organisms distribution of positive cultures were retrospectively analyzed. The results were statistical analyzed by chi(2).
