To determine the Helicobacter pylori eradication rates using lansoprazole, amoxicillin and clarithromycin for seven days, in patients with peptic ulcer disease in a well developed urban area in Brazil.

A significant number of inappropriate antibiotic prescriptions were issued for infections with a high probability of bacterial resistance to the prescribed antibiotics.
Most urinary tract infections (UTI) are caused by Escherichia coli. Integrons have an important role in distributing antibiotic resistance genes among bacteria.

Salmonella spp. isolates obtained from healthy swine in 2008 were analyzed for antibiotic resistance phenotypes and genotypes. The resistance profiles of the 2008 isolates were compared with those of a Salmonella collection isolated from the same geographical area in 2005. The 2008 isolates consisted of strains that were 97% oxytetracycline resistant, 33.3% amoxicillin resistant, 31.8% amoxicillin- plus clavulanic acid resistant, 27.5% trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole resistant, 17.3% streptomycin resistant, and 7.2% enrofloxacin-ciprofloxacin resistant. The presence of integrons and resistance genes and their topological association in resistant strains was assessed by PCR. The prevalence of class 1 integrons was the highest, at 46.2%, while class 2 integrons were present in 17.9% of the isolates. In strains that harboured class 1 integrons, we identified 3 different gene cassette arrangements; a single class 2 integron arrangement of dfrA1-sat1-aadA1 was found. Comparison of these results with data obtained from the 2005 isolates showed that Salmonella strains resistant to amoxicillin and amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid had clearly emerged over the span of 3 years, along with an increase in the prevalence of class 1 integrons and the acquisition of new gene cassette arrangements. These findings highlight the need for continual monitoring of regional isolates to establish more efficient vigilance programs that can address variations in resistance over short periods of time within the same geographical area.

Levofloxacin has been shown to be effective in Helicobacter pylori eradication. Two 10-day levofloxacin-based triple therapies were compared with standard 7- and 14-day quadruple regimens in second-line treatment.

The prevalence of antimicrobial resistance was 0% versus 3.1% to AMO, 0% versus 2% to TET, 27% versus 41.3% to MET (p<0.05), 18% versus 45.8% to CLA (p<0.05) and 3% versus 14.6% to LEV (p<0.05) in Group 1 vs Group 2, respectively. In Group 2, there was an increased prevalence of H pylori strains resistant to multiple antimicrobials.

We collected urine culture results from 0-18-year-old patients in the National Taiwan University Hospital from January 1, 2003 to October 31, 2012. Their medical chart was reviewed to identify true pathogens responsible for their urinary tract infection (UTI). We checked the percentage of susceptibility of these pathogens to ampicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate (AMC), cefazolin, cefmetazole, ceftriaxone, gentamicin, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) according to the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) guideline. The extended-spectrum-beta-lactamases (ESBLs) rate was also checked. In addition, we reviewed the treatment response of different antibiotics. Defervescence within 48 hours after initial antibiotics use was considered responsive.

Burkholderia pseudomallei is the etiologic agent of melioidosis. This multifaceted disease is difficult to treat, resulting in high morbidity and mortality. Treatment of B. pseudomallei infections is lengthy and necessitates an intensive phase (parenteral ceftazidime, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid or meropenem) and an eradication phase (oral trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole). The main resistance mechanisms affecting these antibiotics include enzymatic inactivation, target deletion and efflux from the cell, and are mediated by chromosomally encoded genes. Overproduction and mutations in the class A PenA β-lactamase cause ceftazidime and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid resistance. Deletion of the penicillin binding protein 3 results in ceftazidime resistance. BpeEF-OprC efflux pump expression causes trimethoprim and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole resistance. Although resistance is still relatively rare, therapeutic efficacies may be compromised by resistance emergence due to increased use of antibiotics in endemic regions. Novel agents and therapeutic strategies are being tested and, in some instances, show promise as anti-B. pseudomallei infectives.
Currently established first line therapy of acute (presumed bacterial) rhinosinusitis (ARS) consists of 10 to 14 days of oral amoxicillin or cephalosporins. This study compared the clinical efficacy and tolerance of cefcapene pivoxil (CP) and amoxicillin-clavulanate (AMC) in patients with ARS.

In both groups, skin test reactivity tended to decrease, and although greater in Group A, the difference was not significant compared with Group B. Median RAST values also decreased over time and showed no differences in the exposed group compared with the controls. One patient in Group A became positive to benzylpenicilloyl (BPO), despite becoming negative to AX.
This first pharmacogenomics study on the influence of different CYP genotypes on H. pylori therapy suggests that, as in Asian populations, CYP2C19 genotype patterns are probably also relevant in Caucasians receiving H. pylori eradication regimens that include omeprazole. The possibility of a favorable drug interaction mediated by CYP2C19 and CYP3A4 requires investigation.
