A macrolide resistant phenotype was demonstrated for all strains harboring a 23S rDNA mutation, demonstrating that either A2058G or A2059G mutation confers in vivo drug resistance.
This is a report of the first South Korean case of a lung disease caused by Mycobacterium simiae. The patient was a previously healthy 52-year-old female. All serial isolates were identified as M. simiae by multi-locus sequencing analysis, based on hsp65, rpoB, 16S-23S rRNA internal transcribed spacer, and 16S rRNA fragments. A chest radiography revealed deterioration, and the follow-up sputum cultures were persistently positive, despite combination antibiotic treatment, including azithromycin, ethambutol, and rifampin. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first confirmed case of a lung disease caused by M. simiae in South Korea.
Drug acquisition cost is an important component in the analysis of economic and clinical outcomes in the treatment of respiratory tract infections (RTIs). However, bacterial resistance has emerged as a crucial variable that must also be considered. Drug-resistant infections result in more expensive drug therapy, longer hospital stays, and increased mortality. The high prevalence of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), as well as the continuing growth in resistant pathogens, make RTIs an appropriate model for studying methods of cost-containment without sacrificing clinical outcome. The University of Kentucky Medical Center has developed a uniform CAP treatment pathway to minimize costs and maximize outcomes. First-line therapy in this model is doxycycline monotherapy, high-dose amoxicillin plus azithromycin, or levofloxacin monotherapy. One major future concern in selecting antibacterial agents for CAP is the spread of macrolide- and fluoroquinolone-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Bartonella henselae is the aetiological agent of cat-scratch disease. Recently, there have been reports of other conditions associated with this bacterium, including leucocytoclastic vasculitis, thrombocytopenic purpura, maculopapular and urticarial eruptions, granuloma annulare, erythema nodosum, erythema marginatum and erythema annulare. We report the first case, to our knowledge, of the simultaneous occurrence of cutaneous vasculitis and nephrotic syndrome in a 65-year-old woman with IgA nephropathy after a B. henselae infection transmitted by a cat scratch. The aetiopathogenetic role of B. henselae was hypothesized on the basis of the serological demonstration of acute B. henselae infection, the immunofluorescence findings, and the prompt resolution after azithromycin treatment. Patients reporting cat scratches or bites should undergo accurate clinical examination, routine laboratory examinations, urinalysis and clinical surveillance.

Test the hypothesis that azithromycin reduces the clinical benefits of tobramycin by analyses of clinical trial data, in vitro modeling of P. aeruginosa antibiotic killing, and regulation of the MexXY efflux pump.
We sought to study antibiotic resistance and molecular epidemiology of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from lower respiratory tracts of patients in Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital. Hundred and seven strains of MRSA were isolated from the patients of nine wards. The tests for antibiotic resistance (Kirby-Bauer paper dispersion method), the Panton-Valentine Leukocidin (PVL) and Staphyloccoccal Cassette Chromosome mec (SCCmec) genes (PCR), and homology analysis (32 randomly selected MRSA strains; pulsed-field gel electrophoresis) were carried out. All 107 strains were susceptible to vancomycin, teicoplanin, and linezolid, but highly or completely resistant to tetracycline, gentamicin, clindamycin, levofloxacin, azithromycin, erythromycin, trimethoprim/sulphamethoxazole, and ciprofloxacin. All 107 strains were negative for PVL gene. Most of the strains (81.3%) were SCCmec III type, while the SCCmec II and IV types were less frequent (15.9 and 2.8%, respectively). No SCCmec I or V types were detected. The homology analysis test showed that 32 MRSA strains could be divided into 4 groups: type A (25 strains), type B (5 strains), type C (1 strain), and type D (1 strain). The type A included 3 subtypes: A1 (17 strains), A2 (1 strain), and A3 (7 strains). Further, most of the strains were isolated from the same wards or units (e.g., intensive care unit or tuberculosis wards) within a short period of time, indicating an outbreak status. In conclusion, the observed MRSA from low respiratory tracts from patients at Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital were multiple-resistant, with the SCCmec III being the main documented genotype.

Significant increases in telithromycin resistance occurred from 2002-03 to 2004-05 in Europe. Macrolide use appears to be a factor in the emergence of ketolide resistance among S. pyogenes in Western Europe.

Three novel structural series of C-4'' modified azithromycin analogs with two amide groups, which were connected by different alkyl linkage, were designed, prepared and evaluated for their in vitro antibacterial activity against seven phenotypes of respiratory pathogens. Among them, 7d, 8j and 9j, as representatives of corresponding series, exhibited remarkably improved activity against erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae expressing the erm gene, the mef gene, and the erm and mef genes. In addition, 7a-c, 7f-h, 7j, 8d, 8g, 8i, 9a-b and 9i displayed favorable efficacy against erythromycin-resistant S. pneumoniae A22072 expressing the mef gene.

Thirty men with documented H. pylori peptic ulcers completed therapy. Twenty-one also received ranitidine (300 mg in the evening) along with the antimicrobial therapy. H. pylori infection was successfully treated in 15 (50%) (95% CI = 31-69%). The cure rate was significantly higher with the 250-mg-t.i.d.-azithromycin dosage regime (83%) (95% CI = 52-98%) compared to the 250-mg-b.i.d.-dosage regime (28%) (95% CI = 10-53%) (p < 0.01). Troublesome side effects were experienced by the majority of those receiving azithromycin t.i.d.

Hospitalized children with ALRI were analyzed through continuous monitoring from 2006 to 2012. Nasopharyngeal aspirates were examined by direct immunofluorescence to detect respiratory agents including respiratory syncytial virus, adenovirus, influenza virus types A/B, parainfluenza virus types 1/2/3. Chlamydia pneumonia, Mycoplasma pneumonia and Chlamydia trachomatis were determined by real-time PCR. A retrospective analysis was made of 479 patients with positive infection of adenovirus.

The macrolide class of antibiotics is well established and often recommended for use in the treatment of community-acquired respiratory tract infections. A number of agents with varying antimicrobial activity have been developed via chemical modification of the core macrolide structure, a macrocyclic lactam ring. Although structurally diverse, the macrolides share a common ability to bind to the bacterial 50S ribosome subunit and inhibit protein synthesis, thereby preventing bacterial multiplication. Resistance in the clinic is due to modification of the 50S subunit in the area of the peptidyl transferase center or to an efflux pump. The newer macrolides, and in particular azithromycin, with their broad-spectrum microbiological profile have extended the therapeutic uses of this class of antibiotics and ensured that they remain an integral part of the clinician's armamentarium.
