Dendritic cells (DCs) are professional antigen-presenting cells capable of initiating primary/adaptive immune responses and tolerance. DC functions are regulated by their state of maturation. However, the molecular pathways leading to DC development and maturation remain poorly understood. We attempted to determine whether inhibition of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB), which is one of the pivotal pathways underlying these processes, could induce immunophenotypic and functional changes in lipopolysaccharide-induced mature DCs derived from murine bone marrow. A comparative in vitro study of five clinically used drugs that are known to inhibit NF-κB demonstrated that azithromycin, a macrolide antibiotic, significantly inhibited expression of co-stimulatory molecules (CD40 and CD86) and major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II by DCs. It also reduced Toll-like receptor 4 expression, interleukin-12 production and the allostimulatory capacity of DCs. These data suggest that azithromycin, as not only an NF-κB inhibitor but also an antibiotic, has potential as a novel drug for manipulation of allogeneic responses.
The in vitro activities of omeprazole and eight antimicrobial agents against 18 clinical strains of Helicobacter pylori isolated from a pediatric population were determined by an agar dilution method. Ampicillin and erythromycin were the most active agents in vitro. All strains were susceptible to azithromycin, ciprofloxacin, doxycycline, metronidazole, and tinidazole. One isolate demonstrated resistance to cefixime (MIC, greater than or equal to 4 micrograms/ml). H. pylori was inhibited by the proton pump inhibitor omeprazole.

Several antibiotics inhibited PAF-induced platelet aggregation of both WRPs and rPRP in a concentration-depended manner, with clarithromycin, azithromycin and amikacin exhibiting the higher inhibitory effect, while when combined they synergistically inhibited PAF. Higher concentrations of all antibiotics tested were needed in order to inhibit PAF induced aggregation of rPRP, but also to inhibit thrombin induced aggregation of WRPs. Concentrations of these drugs similar to their IC50 values against PAF activity in WRPs, inhibited also in vitro PAF-CPT and Lyso-PAF-AT activities of rabbit leukocytes, while only clarithromycin and azithromycin increased rabbit plasma-PAF-AH activity.

Using a computerized database based on HIV clinic records, 48 cases with S. aureus bacteremia were compared against 188 controls selected from patients with CD4 cell counts < 200 x 10(6)/l. Information on demographic risk factors and antimicrobial drug use was analysed using conditional logistic regression.

The objectives of this study were to identify antimicrobial resistance genotypes for Campylobacter and to evaluate the correlation between resistance phenotypes and genotypes using in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility testing and whole-genome sequencing (WGS). A total of 114 Campylobacter species isolates (82 C. coli and 32 C. jejuni) obtained from 2000 to 2013 from humans, retail meats, and cecal samples from food production animals in the United States as part of the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System were selected for study. Resistance phenotypes were determined using broth microdilution of nine antimicrobials. Genomic DNA was sequenced using the Illumina MiSeq platform, and resistance genotypes were identified using assembled WGS sequences through blastx analysis. Eighteen resistance genes, including tet(O), blaOXA-61, catA, lnu(C), aph(2″)-Ib, aph(2″)-Ic, aph(2')-If, aph(2″)-Ig, aph(2″)-Ih, aac(6')-Ie-aph(2″)-Ia, aac(6')-Ie-aph(2″)-If, aac(6')-Im, aadE, sat4, ant(6'), aad9, aph(3')-Ic, and aph(3')-IIIa, and mutations in two housekeeping genes (gyrA and 23S rRNA) were identified. There was a high degree of correlation between phenotypic resistance to a given drug and the presence of one or more corresponding resistance genes. Phenotypic and genotypic correlation was 100% for tetracycline, ciprofloxacin/nalidixic acid, and erythromycin, and correlations ranged from 95.4% to 98.7% for gentamicin, azithromycin, clindamycin, and telithromycin. All isolates were susceptible to florfenicol, and no genes associated with florfenicol resistance were detected. There was a strong correlation (99.2%) between resistance genotypes and phenotypes, suggesting that WGS is a reliable indicator of resistance to the nine antimicrobial agents assayed in this study. WGS has the potential to be a powerful tool for antimicrobial resistance surveillance programs.

Oxacillin resistance was present in 99 of 277 (36%) consecutive Staphylococcus aureus isolates collected from hospital patients in Tehran during a 15-month period (January 2004-March 2005). The majority of isolates (77/99 = 78%) had been cultured from wounds or blood. The staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) types and antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of 99 methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains were determined. Disk diffusion and agar dilution methods were used to determine the susceptibility of isolates to antimicrobial agents as instructed by Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute. The presence of mecA and SCCmec types was determined by PCR and multiplex PCR. All MRSA isolates were susceptible to vancomycin (MIC90

The aims of the present study were to investigate the isolation of Salmonella spp. with the BACTEC automated system from blood samples during 2008 - 2014 in southern Iran (Shiraz). Detection of subspecies, biogrouping, and antimicrobial susceptibility testing by the disc diffusion and agar dilution methods were performed.

These are the first sentinel surveillance data for Western Europe for N. gonorrhoeae and they have implications for choice of antimicrobial for treatment of gonorrhoea on a European and a local level. This is the start of the formation of a European gonococcal antimicrobial surveillance programme (EURO-GASP).

The present study was performed in order to compare azithromycin concentrations in tonsils of paediatric patients treated with different dose regimens of this antibiotic. Sixty-four children, scheduled to undergo surgical removal of tonsils, were treated with azithromycin 10 or 20 mgkg(-1) daily as oral suspension for 3 days. Samples of blood and tonsil were collected during surgery at days 0.5, 2.5, 4.5, 6.5 or 8.5 after the last dose. Azithromycin concentrations were measured by reversed phase high-performance liquid chromatography. In patients treated with 10 mgkg(-1), the highest concentrations of azithromycin were detected in plasma and tonsils at day 0.5 and 2.5, respectively. Consistent drug levels could be measured in tonsils up to 8.5 days. After administration of 20 mgkg(-1), azithromycin tonsillar concentrations were higher than those obtained with 10 mgkg(-1) up to day 6.5, whereas plasma levels did not differ significantly. The present results indicate that an improved tonsillar distribution of azithromycin can be achieved when this antibiotic is administered for 3 days at doses higher than 10 mgkg(-1) daily. These findings give pharmacokinetic support to the suggestion that increments of azithromycin dosing might ensure enhanced therapeutic levels at infective sites of the upper respiratory tract.

Using published probability and cost estimates, we constructed a decision-analysis model to compare the direct costs and effectiveness of field treatment with azithromycin (1-g single dose) versus referral for standard benzathine penicillin therapy.
