Meningococci responsible for significant morbidity and mortality rates in children are found in the oropharynx and nasopharynx and communicated with droplets. In this study, the prevalence of nasopharyngeal Neisseria meningitidis carriage, serogroup distribution and antibiotic resistance were determined among healthy children in Cankaya municipality of Ankara province. The study involved 1155 students aged 7-19 years. Systematic sampling method was used for sample selection. To isolate N. meningitidis, modified Thayer-Martin medium was used. The antibiotic susceptibilities of N. meningitidis isolates were determined by agar dilution method for penicillin, sulfadiazine, rifampicin, and azithromycin. N. meningitidis carriage prevalence was found as 10.4% with serogroup B being the most predominant (47.5%). The prevalence of N. meningitidis carriage was found to be closely associated with living conditions however, tonsillectomy, tonsillar hypertrophy, passive or active smoking did not affect the rate of carriage. Overcrowded life style, use of old-fashioned stoves for heating, and living in shanty housing were determined as risk factors increasing N. meningitidis carriage. None of the strains showed beta-lactamase activity, and five strains (4.2%) had decreased sensitivity to penicillin. The resistance against sulfadiazine was 54.4%, while it was 26.9% against azithromycin. No rifampicin-resistant strain were detected. It can be concluded that the prevalence of meningococcal carriage in this study was similar to that of other European countries. Rifampicin should be the first drug of choice both for the treatment of meningococcal carriers and for the prophylaxis of the subjects who had been in contact with patients with meningococcal infection.

A history of an adverse reaction to amoxicillin, irrespective of the mechanism involved, significantly elevates patients' anxiety and affects therapeutic decisions in the future, leading to unnecessary avoidance of antibiotics. As a consequence, it would be useful to find a safe and reliable protocol for typing safe alternative antibiotics. The aim of the study was to determine negative predictive value of typing safe antibiotic in patients with a history of hypersensitivity reaction to amoxicillin.

Several antibiotics that inhibit protein synthesis on 70S ribosomes, including the macrolide erythromycin, and the azalides azithromycin (ZITHROMAX) and CP-63,956, demonstrated antimalarial activity against two strains of Plasmodium berghei. In a four-day in vivo test, the azalides were 25-fold more potent than erythromycin against the chloroquine-sensitive P. berghei N strain, and displayed additive effects with chloroquine. This effect was not observed with the erythromycin-chloroquine combination. Against the chloroquine-resistant P. berghei MSU/RC strain, the azalides were 60-fold more potent than erythromycin. Additive effects were observed with azalide-chloroquine combinations against this strain, but these results were not significantly different from the erythromycin-chloroquine combination.
This study suggests that antibiotic therapy with azithromycin is not associated with marked early reductions (>/=50%) in ischemic events as suggested by an initial published report. However, a clinically worthwhile benefit (ie, 20% to 30%) is still possible, although it may be delayed. Larger (several thousand patient), longer-term (>/=3 to 5 years) antibiotic studies are therefore indicated.

Overall, the results indicate that NAC and AZM not only can correct the chloride efflux dysfunction but also have a weakly strengthening effect on the innate immune system.

A number of studies have suggested that the non-antimicrobial actions of macrolide antibiotics may be valuable in treating patients with cystic fibrosis. The use of long-term macrolide antibiotics for the management of CF patients colonised by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and progressive pulmonary disease was introduced into our clinic in 1997. A retrospective study was undertaken to assess of the impact of this therapy.

Canada conducts surveillance of penicillin, tetracycline, erythromycin, spectinomycin, ciprofloxacin, cefixime, and ceftriaxone susceptibilities in Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates to support development of national treatment guidelines for sexually transmitted infections.

Despite growing data on antimicrobial lock therapy (ALT) in treating bacterial catheter-related bloodstream infections (CR-BSIs), ALT has not been established as a treatment option for CR-BSI caused by Candida albicans. Based on our finding that high-dose doxycycline exhibited antifungal activity against mature C. albicans biofilms, we evaluated additional antibacterial agents with Gram-positive activity [azithromycin, tigecycline (TIG) and vancomycin]. After screening these antibiotics, it was found that TIG had substantial antifungal activity against mature C. albicans biofilms. Therefore, TIG was assayed alone and in combination with fluconazole (FLC), amphotericin B (AmB) or caspofungin (CAS). TIG at 2048 μg/mL resulted in a >50% reduction in the growth of planktonic C. albicans cells. TIG inhibited the formation of biofilms from 128 μg/mL. Against mature biofilms, 2048 μg/mL TIG reduced metabolic activity by 84.2%. Furthermore, addition of 512 μg/mL TIG to FLC at all concentrations tested provided additional reduction in the metabolic activity of mature biofilms. However, this was not superior to 512 μg/mL TIG alone. TIG at 512 μg/mL increased the antifungal effect of lower concentrations of AmB (0.03125-0.25 μg/mL), but at 0.03125 μg/mL and 0.0625 μg/mL this effect was not superior to 512 μg/mL TIG alone. TIG inhibited the antifungal effect of higher concentrations of AmB (≥ 2 μg/mL). TIG at 512 μg/mL inhibited the antifungal activity of CAS at lower concentrations (0.25-8 μg/mL). These data indicate that high-dose TIG is highly active in vitro against planktonic cells, forming biofilms and mature biofilms of C. albicans.

During an outbreak of severe pneumonia among new army recruits, an epidemiological investigation combined with repeated nasopharyngeal/oropharyngeal cultures from sick and healthy contacts subjects was conducted. Fifteen pneumonia cases and 19 influenza-like illness cases occurred among 596 recruits over a 4-week period in December 2005. Pneumonia attack rates reached up to 5.5%. A single pneumococcus serotype 5 clone was isolated from blood or sputum cultures in 4 patients and 30/124 (24.1%) contacts. Immunization with 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine supplemented with a 2-dose azithromycin mass treatment rapidly terminated the outbreak. Carriage rates dropped to <1%, 24 and 45 days after intervention.

Determination of clarithromycin (CL) and azithromycin (AZ) uptake by human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs), monocytes and alveolar macrophages showed that AZ achieved higher levels than CL. The uptake kinetics of AZ were time-dependent over an 18 h period, while those of CL were similar to erythromycin (ER) kinetics, with a maximum level of incorporation being obtained after a 60 min incubation. The accumulation of both drugs was influenced by extracellular antibiotic-concentrations, PMN viability, extracellular calcium, physiological environmental temperature and pH. The uptake was not modified by inhibitors of cell metabolism or activators of cell membranes. After removal of extracellular antibiotic, the release of AZ from PMNs was very slow: nearly 50% of the drug remained cell-associated after 24 h incubation. The efflux of this derivative was significantly enhanced when drug-loaded PMNs were stimulated by phorbol-myristate acetate (PMA). The kinetics of CL release indicated that this macrolide behaved like ER. Nevertheless, about 10% of the initial cell-associated antibiotic showed a prolonged retention. On the whole, these data suggest that diffusion through cell membranes and trapping into acidic compartments of PMNs are important events in CL and AZ uptake.
This in vitro study suggests that 6-mercaptopurine may be synergistic with macrolides and rifamycin derivatives against MAP. The activity of clarithromycin against MAP seems to be enhanced by rifampicin.

Azithromycin regimens were evaluated in a randomized, double-blind trial of azithromycin, given as a single 1-g dose or a 3-day regimen (500 mg daily), versus a 3-day regimen of levofloxacin (500 mg daily) in military field clinics in Thailand. Outcomes included clinical end points (time to the last unformed stool [TLUS] and cure rates) and microbiological end points (pathogen eradication).
