The objective of this study was to analyze the efficacy of ultraviolet (UV) radiation in the direct photodegradation of nitroimidazoles. For this purpose, i) a kinetic study was performed, determining the quantum yield of the process; and ii) the influence of the different operational variables was analyzed (initial concentration of antibiotic, pH, presence of natural organic matter compounds, and chemical composition of water), and the time course of total organic carbon (TOC) concentration and toxicity during nitroimidazole photodegradation was studied. The very low quantum yields obtained for the four nitroimidazoles are responsible for the low efficacy of the quantum process during direct photon absorption in nitroimidazole phototransformation. The R(254) values obtained show that the dose habitually used for water disinfection is not sufficient to remove this type of pharmaceutical; therefore, higher doses of UV irradiation or longer exposure times are required for their removal. The time course of TOC and toxicity during direct photodegradation (in both ultrapure and real water) shows that oxidation by-products are not oxidized to CO(2) to the desired extent, generating oxidation by-products that are more toxic than the initial product. The concentration of nitroimidazoles has a major effect on their photodegradation rate. The study of the influence of pH on the values of parameters ɛ (molar absorption coefficient) and k'(E) (photodegradation rate constant) showed no general trend in the behavior of nitroimidazoles as a function of the solution pH. The components of natural organic matter, gallic acid (GAL), tannic acid (TAN) and humic acid (HUM), may act as promoters and/or inhibitors of OH· radicals via photoproduction of H(2)O(2). The effect of GAL on the metronidazole (MNZ) degradation rate markedly differed from that of TAN or HUM, with a higher rate at low GAL concentrations. Differences in MNZ degradation rate among waters with different chemical composition are not very marked, although the rate is slightly lower in wastewaters, mainly due to the UV radiation filter effect of this type of water.

To critically review evidence on the role of non-bismuth quadruple therapy (PPI-clarithromycin-amoxicillin-nitroimidazole) in the treatment of H. pylori infection.
We designed a prospective study, with two groups of patients presenting dyspeptic symptoms, from October 2010 to October 2011, who underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and whose biopsies were positive for infection with H. pylori. At the end, 81 patients were included in the order of biopsy result arrival to fill the quota of each group. The first group with 42 patients underwent triple therapy with clarithromycin and the second group with 39 patients underwent therapy with levofloxacin, amoxicillin and a PPI. The patients' age ranged between 23 and 76years, the average being 49.5. The predominant sex was female, at 72.84%. Both treatments lasted for 10days and the patients were clinically re-evaluated 15days after their conclusion and programmed for a second endoscopy to verify H. pylori eradication.
To evaluate the efficacy of ranitidine bismuth citrate-tetracycline-metronidazole rescue regimen, and to compare two different metronidazole dose schemes.

Levofloxacin-tinidazole-based triple therapy was highly effective and safe as a first-line regimen in Indian patients with gastroduodenal ulcer disease associated with H. pylori infection. The regimen was well tolerated.

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is the leading cause of death due to gastrointestinal infections in the US and is the most common cause of nosocomial diarrhea. The emergence of a hypervirulent strain in the early 2000s has been associated with a dramatic increase in the number and severity of cases in the US, Canada, and several other countries. Most cases are related to antibiotic use, but sporadic cases occur in otherwise healthy individuals with no risk factors. Morbidity and mortality are highest in the elderly. Diagnosis is confirmed by detection of C. difficile toxin in the stools. Treatment should be stratified by severity of disease, with metronidazole use for mild disease cases and vancomycin for severe disease. Recurrent CDI occurs in 10-20 % of cases. A first recurrence can be treated with a ten-day regimen of metronidazole or vancomycin; a second recurrence is best treated by a pulsed regimen of vancomycin. In patients with multiple (three or more) recurrences, fecal microbiota transplant has a high rate of success. The most important methods of prevention are wise antibiotic policies, hand hygiene, isolation, and barrier methods in hospital and long-term care facilities (LCTF) settings.

A total of 164 patients with proven H. pylori infection randomly received 14 days of sequential (n = 86) or concomitant (n = 78) therapies. The sequential group received 20 mg rabeprazole and 1 g amoxicillin (first week), followed by 20 mg rabeprazole, 500 mg clarithromycin, and 500 mg metronidazole (second week). The concomitant group received 20 mg rabeprazole, 1 g amoxicillin, 500 mg clarithromycin, and 500 mg metronidazole for 2 weeks. All drugs were administered BID. Helicobacter pylori status was confirmed 4 weeks later, after completion of treatment by (13) C-urea breath test.

Our objective was to assess whether antibiotic prophylaxis should be offered to women post sexual assault by considering acceptability of prophylaxis, follow up attendance rates and the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in these women. Retrospective case notes review of female survivors of rape or sexual assault attending the Rose Clinic, Ambrose King Centre, Royal London Hospital between 1 January 1997 and 31 May 1999 was carried out. The following selection criteria were applied: age greater than 16 years; attending within two weeks of assault; having experienced vaginal and/or anal penetration. All women were screened for STI using standard investigation methods detailed below. Antibiotic prophylaxis was offered within two weeks of the assault, the antibiotic regimens used as recommended. The women were invited to attend for results at two weeks and offered a further screen at three months post assault. Bacterial vaginosis was present in 32% of the women screened, Chlamydia trachomatis was identified in 8%, none tested positive for Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Of the 25 women who were offered antibiotic prophylaxis, 88% accepted. Follow up attendances were 57% at two weeks and 30% at three months. Antibiotic prophylaxis was acceptable to women. Among recent rape victims, follow-up rates are low confirmed by our study. These factors support the use of antibiotic prophylaxis post sexual assault. There was an apparently high prevalence of STIs amongst women in this study. More research is required with respect to this aspect of the work and to consider the cost-benefit analysis of antibiotic prophylaxis.
