We measured the trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole MICs and analysed folA and folP nucleotide and translated amino acid sequences for 143 pneumococci isolated from carriage and invasive disease in Malawi (2002-08).
Only 18 cases of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole associated hypoglycaemia are reported in the literature. Hypoglycaemia is a life-threatening condition, likely underreported, to consider when trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole administration is required, even in the absence of predisposing factors or other hypoglycaemic agents. Physician should bear in mind the potential trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole-associated adverse event especially when prolonged treatments and elevated dosage are used.
Resistance to quinolones remained unchanged during this four year period. Among Enterobacteriaceae, less than 3% of strains were resistant to fluoroquinolones. A regular decrease in the annual percentage of co-amoxyclav susceptible strains was noted: from 82.4% in 1990 to 68.1% in 1993 (p < 0.001). Resistance (intermediate plus resistant strains) was more frequent in patients more than 60 years old, in those who had received quinolones up to one month before specimen collection or in those who had been recently (within 3 months) hospitalised. Similar data were obtained for amoxycillin or co-amoxyclav.

A retrospective study was conducted at Detroit Medical Center. For calendar year 2009, unique adults (age >18 years) with infections due to MRSA with an MIC to vancomycin of 2 μg/mL were included if they received 2 or more doses of TMP/SMX and/or daptomycin and/or linezolid. Data were abstracted from patient charts and pharmacy records.
Treatment of multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) is challenging because of the high toxicity of second-line drugs and the longer treatment duration than for drug-susceptible TB patients. In order to speed up novel treatment for MDR-TB, we suggest considering expanding the indications of already available drugs. Six drugs with antimicrobial activity (phenothiazine, metronidazole, doxycycline, disulfiram, tigecycline and co-trimoxazole) are not listed in the World Health Organization guidelines on MDR-TB treatment but could be potential candidates for evaluation against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. A systematic review was conducted to evaluate antituberculous activity of these drugs against M. tuberculosis. We searched PubMed, Google Scholar and Embase for English articles published up to December 31, 2012. We reviewed in vitro, in vivo and clinical antituberculous activity of these drugs in addition to pharmacokinetics and side-effects. Of the drugs effective against actively replicating M. tuberculosis, co-trimoxazole seems to be the most promising, because of its consistent pharmacokinetic profile, easy penetration into tissue and safety profile. For the dormant state of TB, thioridazine may play a potential role as an adjuvant for treatment of MDR-TB. A strategy consisting of pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic studies, dose finding and phase III studies is needed to explore the role of these drugs in MDR-TB treatment.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) preseptal cellulitis is an aggressive ophthalmic infection of increasing frequency. Previously reported cases were successfully treated with first line drugs such as vancomycin or Bactrim (trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole); however, such drugs have limited efficacy in treating cutaneous MRSA. The authors report the first 2 known cases of MRSA-mediated preseptal cellulitis that resolved with systemic linezolid and rifampin following failed intravenous vancomycin treatment after incision and drainage of the abscess. The authors conclude that in cases of cutaneous MRSA infections that respond poorly to vancomycin, linezolid and rifampin combination therapy may provide an alternative therapeutic option.

From the perspective of society, mean cost per patient in the co-trimoxazole arm was approximately £1177 higher than in the placebo arm, but mean QALYs were 0.053 higher yielding an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of £22,012 per QALY gained with a 54.44 % probability of being below £30,000. The cost of IPF to UK society in 2011 is tentatively estimated at £124 million, of which 13 % is NHS costs, 1 % social services, 2 % patient out-of-pocket costs and 84 % lost productivity.

This study evaluates the relative effects of 2 combined antibiotics, a crystalloid solution, 4 3% colloid solutions, and a pharmacologic dose of corticosteroids, given alone and in combination for the treatment of Escherichia coli-induced septic shock. All treatments began 5.5 h after bacterial injection. Untreated septic rats had a mean survival time of 9.9 h. Antibiotics (trimethophrim and sulfamethoxazole) alone did not significantly increase mean survival time (11.0 h). No rats in either of these two groups survived 24 h. When antibiotics and dexamethasone were combined, 40% (4/10) rats lived longer than 24 h (p less than .05). With Ringer's solution infusion, the mean survival time was 8.7 h and 30% (3/10) lived longer than 24 h. When a 3% colloid solution was given, 50% (20/40) lived more than 24 h and 20% (8/40) lived more than 7 days. There was no significant difference between the 4 colloid solutions (albumin, dextran-40, dextran-70, hydroxyethyl starch). When Ringer's solution was combined with dexamethasone and antibiotics, 80% (8/10) lived more than 24 h and 20% (2/10) were long-term survivors. When the antibiotic drug was combined with a colloid solution and dexamethasone, all animals lived more than 24 h and 90% (9/10) lived more than 7 days. This study demonstrates the therapeutic value of an effective antibiotic drug for control of the infective organism, a colloid solution infusion to maintain blood volume and circulation, and corticosteroids for still largely unknown reasons.
