Most, but not all, species of subgingival bacteria are considerably more resistant in biofilms than in planktonic cultures. Resistance appeared to be age-related because biofilms demonstrated progressive antibiotic resistance as they matured with maximum resistance coinciding with the steady-state phase of biofilm growth.

The occurrence of positive synergy between antibiotic discs of amoxicillin/clavulanate and cefoperazone was registered in two Klebsiella pneumoniae strains, isolated from hospitals in Czech and Slovak Republic, indicating the presence of genes coding for an extended-spectrum beta-lactamase active also against cefoperazone, a broad-spectrum cephalosporin. Sulbactam inhibited the hydrolysis of cefoperazone by cell-free lysates of these strains which substantiates its use in combination with cefoperazone. Resistance to cephalothin, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, cefoperazone, cefepime and aztreonam was transferred from K. pneumoniae isolates to Escherichia coli K-12 3110 and to Proteus mirabilis P-38 recipient strains.

We used a triple-stage chemostat human gut model to study the effects of co-amoxiclav on indigenous gut microorganisms and C. difficile PCR ribotype 027. C. difficile viable counts and spores were evaluated, and cytotoxin titres were assayed. Co-amoxiclav concentrations were measured using a large plate bioassay.

The activity of DX-619 was evaluated against 376 anaerobic isolates using the reference CLSI agar dilution method. Overall, 90% of the strains were susceptible to DX-619 at < or =1 microg/ml. It was more active than the other four compounds tested except for meropenem, which showed virtually identical overall activity.

We raise the concern of whether the use of a placebo group in a randomized clinical trial is sufficient to eliminate bias in the assessment of the effectiveness of a drug when enrollment into the trial prior to intervention requires diagnosis of a dichotomous disease, and the diagnostic test is subject to uncertainty. Due to misclassification and the regression effect, the observed difference in the proportions of diseased individuals between the treatment and placebo groups at follow-up will be equal to the true difference multiplied by the positive predictive value at screening and the difference between the sensitivity and the false-positive value at follow-up. Thus, measurement error of disease status before and after administering the intervention attenuates the intervention effect. Validation data corresponding to both the screening and follow-up conditions are necessary to provide additional information on the validity of the diagnostic test. Proper statistical analysis should include such data for an accurate portrayal of the effectiveness of the treatment.

A double-blinded study with 50 patients randomised to receiving either a single drug (intravenous metronidazole 500 mg) prophylaxis preoperatively or multi-drug cover (intravenous cefuroxime 1.5 g and metronidazole 0.5 g preoperatively, and oral co-amoxiclav 375 mg 8-hourly postoperatively). They will be reviewed 1, 2 and 4 weeks postoperatively. The wound will be graded as: I, healthy; II, redness and swelling of edges; III, abscess related to a suture; IV, spreading wound infection; V, wound breakdown. Other factors considered are the distance from the lowest wound margin to the anal verge, and previous pilonidal sinus surgery.

The results showed a genetic diversity of Campylobacter between farms indicating multiple sources of infection; but specific clones had the ability to colonize the broiler farms. The antimicrobial resistance patterns were not related to any specific PFGE pattern suggesting that resistance was due to the selective pressure of antibiotic usage. Campylobacter with similar genotypes were circulating in both human and poultry.

This study was designed to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of pharmacokinetically enhanced amoxicillin/clavulanic acid 2000 mg/125 mg extended release formulation (ER), than conventional formulations against community-acquired respiratory tract pathogens, particularly Streptococcus pneumoniae, with reduced susceptibility to amoxicillin. This is an open labelled, multicentric, prospective, interventional study carried out across India from June 2008 to March 2009. The study included adult patients (>18 years), weighing between 40 to 60 kg with radiologically confirmed community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Primary efficacy parameters were clinical response (fever, cough severity, sputum characteristics and improvement in dyspnoea grades) and laboratory parameters. Secondary efficacy parameters were radiological and bacteriological findings at the end of therapy. A total, 727 clinically and radiologically confirmed community-acquired pneumonia patients were enrolled in this study. Eighteen patients were lost to follow-up during study and 709 completed the study as per the study protocol. There was a significant improvement in clinical as well as laboratory parameters at the end of therapy. There was a significant improvement in fever, cough severity, sputum characteristic and dyspnoea grades from 101.88 +/- 1.55, 2.18 +/- 0.76, 1.75 +/- 0.77 and 1.91 +/- 1.23 to 98.14 +/- 0.87 (p < 0.0001), 0.24 +/- 0.45 (p < 0.0001), 0.14 +/- 0.39 (p < 0.0001) and 0.20 +/- 0.47 (p < 0.0001) respectively. Laboratory parameters such as total WBC count and neutrophil percentage decreased significantly from 15317 +/- 662 and 80 +/- 9 to 9067 +/- 558 (p < 0.0001) and 67 +/- 9 (p < 0.0001) respectively at the end of treatment. Bacteriological success and radiological success for amoxicillin-clavulanate 1,000/62.5 mg at the end of treatment was 94.33% (150 of 159) and 98.7% (700 of 709) respectively. Mild to moderate diarrhoea was reported in 61/709 patients (8.6%). Amoxicillin-clavulanate 1,000/62.5 mg given twice daily for ten days was shown to be clinically effective and safe in the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia in adult patients. Therapy was well tolerated. [J Indian Med Assoc 2011; 109: 124-7]

The study was undertaken to characterize the microbiology of dental abscesses in children and to compare clindamycin and ampicillin/sulbactam in the treatment of facial cellulitis of odontogenic origin. Sixty children with acute facial cellulitis of dental origin underwent surgery (extraction or root canal procedure) within 24 hours of presentation. Pus samples were cultured aerobically and anaerobically. Patients were randomized (1:1) to receive intravenous ampicillin/sulbactam or clindamycin for 48 hours followed by oral amoxicillin/clavulanate or clindamycin for 7 days. A total of 211 bacterial isolates were recovered from 54 samples. The most common aerobic and facultative organisms were viridans streptococci, Neisseria, and Eikenella species. Among anaerobes, Prevotella and Peptostreptococcus species were the most frequent. No treatment failure occurred in either group. Dental abscesses in children are polymicrobial aerobic/anaerobic infections. Treatment of complicated dental infections with ampicillin plus a beta-lactamase inhibitor or clindamycin in combination with surgical drainage is very effective.

A new, pharmacokinetically enhanced, oral formulation of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid has been developed to overcome resistance in the major bacterial respiratory pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae, while maintaining excellent activity against Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis, including beta-lactamase producing strains. This study was conducted to provide in vitro susceptibility data for amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and 16 comparator agents against the key respiratory tract pathogens.
