Using a real-time PCR assay specific for a mosaic penA allele that has been associated with oral cephalosporin resistance in Asia, 54 available Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates collected in San Francisco, CA, from January to October 2008 were analyzed. Five isolates tested positive for the mosaic penA gene by real-time PCR. DNA sequencing revealed two mosaic penA alleles (SF-A and SF-B). Isolates with SF-A and SF-B alleles possessed elevated MICs for the oral cephalosporins cefpodoxime and cefixime.

To assess the frequency and diversity of antimicrobial resistant strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae in Thailand, endocervical or urethral strains were isolated from 101 patients at a Bangkok sexually transmitted disease clinic. Of the 101 strains, 90 (89.1%) were resistant to penicillin or tetracycline. Plasmid-mediated resistance to penicillin or tetracycline was found in 33.7% of isolates; this included penicillinase-producing N gonorrhoeae (17.8%), tetracycline-resistant N gonorrhoeae (7.9%), and penicillinase-producing/tetracycline-resistant N gonorrhoeae (7.9%). Moreover, 51.5% of all strains exhibited chromosomally mediated resistance to penicillin and tetracycline. All strains were susceptible to spectinomycin. 22 strains (21.8%) showed decreased susceptibility to ciprofloxacin, while another fifth demonstrated resistance to both fluoroquinolones and norfloxacin. Finally, more than 75% of strains exhibited decreased susceptibility to kanamycin and thiamphenicol. The penicillin/tetracycline resistance phenotypes identified in Bangkok were more similar to those of isolates in the US than in the Philippines, where decreased susceptibility to fluoroquinolones predominates. Given evidence of antimicrobial resistance to penicillin, tetracycline, kanamycin, thiamphenicol, and fluoroquinolones in Thailand, the choice of agents for the treatment of uncomplicated gonococcal infection should be considered carefully and periodic surveillance of antimicrobial resistance is recommended to permit timely revision of treatment protocols.

Compound U-76,253A (R-3746), the active metabolite sodium salt of the prodrug ester U-76,252 (CS-807), was demonstrated to be active against members of the family Enterobacteriaceae with 82 and 85% of strains inhibited by less than or equal to 2.0 and less than or equal to 4.0 micrograms/ml, respectively. In addition, U-76,253A inhibited all strains of Branhamella catarrhalis, Haemophilus influenzae, pathogenic Neisseria spp., oxacillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus, beta-hemolytic streptococci, and pneumococci at less than or equal to 4.0 micrograms/ml. Pseudomonas spp., Acinetobacter spp., enterococci, and oxacillin-resistant staphylococci were resistant to U-76,253A. This U-76,253A antimicrobial activity and spectrum was generally superior to that of comparison orally administered cephems (cefaclor, cefuroxime, and cefixime) and the amoxicillin-clavulanic acid combination. Tests with beta-lactamase-producing isolates indicated that U-76,253A was bactericidal and that its MICs were only influenced by high inoculum concentrations (10(7) CFU/ml) against type Ia and IVc enzyme-producing strains. Preliminary disk diffusion interpretive zone criteria were calculated for 10- and 30-micrograms U-76,253A disks and several possible susceptible MIC breakpoints. The absolute interpretive agreement between MICs and zone diameters ranged from 87.8 to 95.6%. Final selection of interpretive criteria awaits further U-76,252 pharmacokinetic information.

Clinicians all too often face the difficult dilemma of deciding whether a bone fracture in a young child was intentional. A structured expert consensus process suggests that all rib fractures; midshaft or metaphyseal fractures of the humerus; and fractures of the radius, ulna, tibia, or fibula in children younger than 1 year of age are highly likely to have been caused by abuse. Abused children are more likely to have negative social relationships with other children than their school-aged peers. Research on the causes of sudden infant death syndrome is still confounded by the likelihood that some deaths for which the label was misapplied are included in many studies; however, the presence of smokers in the household in the postnatal period appears to be yet another factor associated with increased risk. Congenital syphilis is on the rise. Detection of infants who have been infected is incomplete. Lack of prenatal care is strongly associated with infection. Cord serology is not sensitive enough to detect all possible cases. Testing of both maternal and neonatal sera results in detection of more infants at risk. Current tests still result in the treatment of some infants who are not themselves infected. Amoxicillin clavulante given twice daily rather then thrice, cefixime given once a day, and a single intramuscular dose of ceftriaxone have all shown acceptable--though not exceptional--cure rates for otitis media. Price is a consideration. Fewer courses of antibiotics would be necessary if more infants were breastfed. Exclusively breastfeeding to at least 4 months cuts the number of bouts of otitis media almost in half.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Because sprouted seed products are kept wet during and after production, have high levels of nutrients, and a neutral pH, they are subject to the outgrowth of pathogens such as Escherichia coli O157:H7. For these same reasons, these products also contain high levels of heterotrophic organisms and in particular coliform bacteria. Recent outbreaks have focused attention on the need to improve methodology for isolating this pathogen from sprouts. When 40 E. coli O157:H7 strains were grown in pure culture in enterohemorrhagic E. coli enrichment broth (EEB) as prescribed in the U.S. FDA-Bacteriological Analytical Manual (FDA-BAM) and in EEB modified by varying the cefixime concentration, outgrowth for all strains in EEB was inhibited at 0.05 mg/l but for only 2 of 40 strains when the cefixime level was adjusted to 0.0125 mg/l. These two enrichment formulae were compared to modified E. coli broth (mEC), modified Tryptic Soy Broth with 20 mg/l novobiocin (mTSB + N), modified Buffered Peptone Water (mBPW), and mBPW with added 10 mg/l acriflavin, 10 mg/l cefsulodin, and 8 mg/l vancomycin (mBPW + ACV) for isolation of E. coli O157:H7 from sprouts. These comparisons were performed using low-level (0.12 to 0.42 cfu/g) artificially contaminated alfalfa and mixed salad sprouts. After enrichment, two isolation methods were compared for recovery; direct plating to Tellurite-Cefixime Sorbitol MacConkey agar (TCSMAC) and immunomagnetic separation (IMS) (Dynabeads anti-E. coli O157, Dynal, Oslo, Norway) followed by plating to TCSMAC. In addition, an immunoprecipitin detection kit, VIP (BioControl, Bellevue, WA), was evaluated for detection after enrichment. We found that five of the six enrichments were equivalent for detection or recovery while one enrichment (mTSB + N without agitation) was less productive. Incubation for 24 h was more effective in recovering E. coli O157:H7 from sprouts than 6 h for all enrichment broths. Plating after IMS was more productive than direct plating at these low levels of contamination, yielding recovery in 70 of 90 trials compared to 37 of 90 trials without IMS for six enrichments. The sensitivity of VIP for detection of E. coli O157:H7 varied depending on the enrichment broth. Because of the rapid rate of growth of E. coli O157:H7 in mBPW, the high productivity of mBPW + ACV after 24-h enrichment and its compatibility with both IMS and detection with immunoprecipitin tests, mBPW + ACV at 42 degrees C with agitation was found to be the most promising enrichment protocol for testing sprouts.
