A statistically significant increase in antibiotic resistance was observed among outpatient and inpatient isolates of E. coli. Inpatient isolates were more likely to be resistant to antimicrobial agents. Among isolates from outpatients, 50% were resistant to ampicillin, 33% were resistant to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMZ), and 14% were resistant to ciprofloxacin. Among isolates from inpatients, 63% were resistant to ampicillin, 44% were resistant to TMP-SMZ, and 33% were resistant to ciprofloxacin. There was a low rate of resistance to imipenem (0.3% of isolates), amikacin (2%), and nitrofurantoin (2.4%-6.5%). Resistance to ceftazidime was detected in 9% of outpatient isolates and 17% of inpatient isolates. Multidrug resistance was defined as resistance to 2 or more classes of antibiotics. Multidrug resistance was detected in 2.0%-28.1% of outpatient isolates and 7.4%-39.6% of inpatient isolates, depending on the combination of antimicrobials tested. More isolates were resistant to ampicillin plus TMP-SMZ than to any other combination of antimicrobials.

The risks of agranulocytosis and aplastic anemia in relation to the use of anti-infective drugs were estimated in a population-based case-control study conducted in Europe and Israel. Anti-infective drug use in the 2-week period before the onset of illness was compared between 251 patients admitted to hospital with agranulocytosis and 1271 controls hospitalized for reasons judged to be unrelated to previous use of anti-infective drugs. Anti-infectives significantly associated with agranulocytosis when used for at least 3 consecutive days were trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (relative risk, 12; 95% confidence interval, 3.9 to 40) and macrolides (infinity). The relative risk estimate for any use of sulfonamides without trimethoprim was elevated, but not statistically significant (3.6; 0.7 to 18). These estimates took confounding by various factors, in particular the use of other drugs, into account. The estimated excess risks of agranulocytosis attributable to the use of trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole and macrolides in a 2-week period were 1.6 and 7.1 per million, respectively. Anti-infective use during the 29- through 180-day period before hospital admission was compared between 135 patients with aplastic anemia and 1410 controls. Although relative risk point estimates were elevated for trimethoprim/sulfonamides (2.1), other sulfonamides (2.9), and beta-lactams (1.5), none was statistically significant.

The TB treatment success rate among TB/HIV co-infected patients in our setting is low. Mortality was high among TB/HIV co-infected patients during TB treatment and is strongly associated with clinical and biological factors, highlighting the urgent need for specific interventions focused on enhancing patient outcomes.

Systemic antimicrobial use and positive C. difficile tests at the LTCF were compared for the 36 months before and the 18 months after the initiation of the ID consultation service through segmented regression analysis of an interrupted time series.

The antibacterial activity of fleroxacin was evaluated in 427 gram-positive and gram-negative strains, all isolated recently from clinical specimens and compared to that of ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin and co-trimoxazole. The activity of fleroxacin resembled to that of ofloxacin; its excellent activity against Haemophilus influenzae on the one hand and its lack of activity against beta-hemolytic streptococci on the other hand have to be mentioned. Selection frequencies for resistant clones were evaluated for clinical E. coli and Serratia marcescens isolates and the quinolones. With respect to clinical E. coli and Serratia marcescens isolates selection frequencies ranged from 10(-7) to 10(-9) in the presence of 2-fold or 8-fold the MIC. The outer membrane proteins of E. coli and Serratia marcescens wild-type strains were compared with those of their quinolone-resistant mutants. No discrepancies could be observed in E. coli, whereas some of the resistant Serratia marcescens mutants exhibited an increased expression of 31 kdal protein linked with a decrease of a 37 kdal major outer membrane protein. As these alterations could not be observed in each of the resistant mutants, it cannot be decided at present whether such alterations may provide an explanation for the resistance observed.

A retrospective cohort study was conducted of 577 lung transplant recipients from January 1991 to May 2007. Demographics, reason for transplant, recent rejection, time from transplantation, site of infection, hypogammaglobulinemia, and/or neutropenia shortly before onset, Pneumocystis jiroveci prophylaxis, Nocardia species, radiographic findings, extrapulmonary lesions, nature and duration of treatment, adverse reactions, and outcomes were recorded.

The clinical features of pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) differ according to the predisposing factors responsible for immunosuppression. Although PCP in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) has been extensively described, its characteristics in non-AIDS patients, such as those with malignancies, are not thoroughly documented.

A group of clinical, immunologic, and virologic variables was examined to determine if any predicted the development of hypersensitivity to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMZ) during treatment of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Hypersensitivity occurred in 39 (27%) of 143 patients, who had significantly higher total lymphocyte and CD4+ and CD8+ cell counts and CD4:CD8 ratios than did those who did not develop hypersensitivity. Regression analysis identified having a CD4:CD8 ratio > 0.10 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.75-3.94; P = .02) and treatment for < 14 days (95% CI, 1.57-3.75; P = .04) as independently predictive of hypersensitivity. Use of corticosteroids tended to reduce the frequency of hypersensitivity (7% vs. 30%; P = .07). T lymphocytes may be important in the pathogenesis of these hypersensitivity reactions. As the frequency of hypersensitivity declines with disease progression, T lymphocytes could be effector cells in these reactions or their sensitivity to TMP-SMZ may decline with HIV disease progression.

A 48-year-old woman who had human immunodeficiency virus infection presented with decreased visual acuity, redness, and irritation in the right eye.
In both countries, essential drug formulations met pharmacopoeial potency requirements, but some had a poor in vitro drug release profiles. Some of the formulations tested were not stable upon storage under simulated tropical conditions.
