Trachoma surveillance is most commonly performed by direct observation, usually by non-ophthalmologists using the World Health Organization (WHO) simplified grading system. However, conjunctival photographs may offer several benefits over direct clinical observation, including the potential for greater inter-rater agreement. This study assesses whether inter-rater agreement of trachoma grading differs when trained graders review conjunctival photographs compared to when they perform conjunctival examinations in the field.

Mycobacteriumavium complex (MAC) is clinically important since it can cause severe infections in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients and other immunocompromised individuals. Use of the macrolides clarithromycin and azithromycin has improved the outcome of MAC infections, but therapeutic failure is still a major problem. In this work, we studied efflux pump activity in MAC clinical strains and evaluated the contribution of active efflux to macrolide resistance. Eighteen clinical strains isolated from AIDS patients were evaluated for macrolide resistance in the presence and absence of the efflux pump inhibitors (EPIs) thioridazine, chlorpromazine and verapamil. The efflux activity of these strains was then assessed by a semi-automated fluorometric method that detects extrusion of ethidium bromide (EtBr), a known efflux pump substrate. Resistance to clarithromycin was significantly reduced in the presence of thioridazine, chlorpromazine and verapamil. The same EPIs were effective in decreasing the efflux of EtBr from MAC cells. Moreover, increased retention of [(14)C]-erythromycin in the presence of these EPIs further demonstrated that active efflux contributes to MAC resistance to macrolides. This study demonstrates that efflux pumps play an important role in MAC resistance to antibiotics.

We present an atypical case of subglottic stenosis with diffuse tracheal stenoses in a child responsive only to steroid and azithromycin (AZI) therapy. A 12-year-old boy presented with acute biphasic stridor on the background of an 18-month history of progressive shortness of breath, decreased exercise tolerance and snoring. Subsequent laryngoscopy and bronchoscopy revealed granulation tissue in the subglottic area, two circumferential stenoses of the trachea and a number of fibrous bands at the carina and at the aperture if the right main bronchus were seen. A battery of serological and histological investigations did not reveal a specific aetiology. In the acute phase this patient only responded to steroid therapy. In the medium term, repeat laryngoscopies were performed with sharp division of stenotic bands and balloon dilatation. The patient's condition was unresponsive to non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, multiple first-line antibiotics, and surgical treatment of the tracheal lesions. However definitive treatment was found with the macrolide antibiotic AZI used for its anti-inflammatory properties. This highly unusual case of diffuse tracheal stenoses in a child proved to be a management challenge. Definitive treatment was found with the use of AZI. From our literature search this appears to be the first reported case of AZI successfully treating subglottic and tracheal stenoses.

Growth of members of most of the studied genera of gram-positive (Dietzia, Kocuria, and Rhodo- coccus) and gram-negative bacteria (Pseudomonas and Chromobacterium) in biofilms exhibited higher resistance to an translation inhibitor, azithromycin compared to the growth of planktonic cultures of the same strains. Low concentrations of azithromycin were found to stimulate biofilm formation by the studied saprotrophic strains. The rate of synthesis of the polysaccharide matrix component exceeded the rate of cell growth, indicating implementation of the biofilm phenotype under these conditions. It was found that an alkylhydroxybenzene (AHB) compound 4-hexylresorcinol was capable of almost uniform suppression of growth of both planktonic cultures and biofilms of the saprotrophic strains under study. In some cases, combined action ofazithromycin and AHB resulted in an additive inhibitory effect and prevented the stimulation of biofilm growth by subinhibitory azithromycin concentrations. Thus, AHB may be considered a promising antibiofilm agent.

Concurrent patient-partner treatment (CPPT) is the provision of treatment to the index patient and their sexual partner(s) and appears to be an effective method of preventing repeat sexually transmitted infections. The objectives of the study were to determine whether CPPT reduces the prevalence of a positive test of cure (TOC) for chlamydia and/or gonorrhea infection in pregnant women.

GAS survived intracellularly despite exposure of the GAS-containing epithelial cells to penicillin. In contrast, there was killing of ingested GAS after exposure of epithelial cells to either erythromycin or azithromycin. Electron microscopy confirmed a lack of intracellular GAS fragmentation (cell death) after exposure of epithelial cells to penicillin in contrast to obvious GAS fragmentation after epithelial cell exposure to erythromycin or azithromycin. Cephalothin, a cephalosporin, and clindamycin were more effective in killing ingested GAS than was penicillin, but they were less effective than erythromycin or azithromycin.
