Mycobacterium genavense is a recently described agent which can induce disseminated infections in patients with AIDS. Up to now, no standard approach to treatment has been defined and patients have been treated empirically with antibiotics used for treating infections caused by other nontuberculous mycobacteria. In this study, we compared the effectiveness of ciprofloxacin, amikacin, ethambutol, clarithromycin and rifabutin in the treatment of an animal model of M. genavense infection in C57BL/6 mice. Antimycobacterial treatment was started 4 weeks after an intravenous bacterial challenge and was continued for 30 days. Treated and control mice were killed at days 15 and 30 of treatment and the number of viable bacteria in their spleens was counted. Treatment with clarithromycin (50 mg/kg/day sc) and rifabutin (20 mg/kg/day po) was found to decrease the bacterial counts in the spleens significantly as early as 15 days after the onset of treatment (P < 0.01). The effect of treatment was more pronounced after 30 days of treatment (P < 0.001). Amikacin (25 mg/kg/day sc) and ethambutol (50 mg/kg/day sc) were found to decrease significantly the cfu in the spleens only after 30 days of treatment (P < 0.01). Ciprofloxacin (25 mg/kg/day sc) was ineffective in the experimental conditions used here.

H. pylori infection was diagnosed in 90 adult dyspeptic patients. Patients were excluded if previously treated for H. pylori infection or if they were taking a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), H2-receptor antagonist or antibiotics. Patients were assigned to receive one of the following therapies: (1) 7-d triple therapy (PPI plus clarithromycin and amoxicillin or metronidazole) plus L. reuteri supplementation during antibiotic treatment; (2) 7-d triple therapy plus L. reuteri supplementation after antibiotic treatment; (3) sequential regimen (5-d PPI plus amoxicillin therapy followed by a 5-d PPI, clarithromycin and tinidazole) plus L. reuteri supplementation during antibiotic treatment; and (4) sequential regimen plus L. reuteri supplementation after antibiotic treatment. Successful eradication therapy was defined as a negative urea breath test at least 4 wk following treatment.
Two reviewers independently assessed trial eligibility and quality, and extracted data. Where data were incomplete or unclear, a third reviewer resolved conflicts and/or trial authors were contacted for further details. Development of MAC infection and survival were compared using risk ratios (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI). The quality of evidence has been assessed using the GRADE methodology.

Our source population was the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD), a UK primary care database. We conducted a self-controlled case series (SCCS), a case-time-control study (CTC) and a propensity score adjusted cohort study comparing the rate of cardiovascular events in the 3 years after exposure to HPT containing clarithromycin with exposure to clarithromycin free HPT. Outcomes were first incident diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI), arrhythmia and stroke. For the cohort analysis we included secondary outcomes all cause and cardiovascular mortality.
Antibiotics and antidepressants are among the most successful drugs used for human therapy. Their concentration in influent on WWTP is relative high and there can be removed by biodegradation or sorption. The aim of this study was to define the amounts of sorbed pharmaceuticals on digested sludge from WWTP Bratislava - Petržalka. The amounts of sorbed pharmaceuticals were calculated from knowing partition coefficients for selected pharmaceuticals and from analytically measured pharmaceutical´s concentrations in sludge liquor. From this calculation were estimated the one-year sorbed amount of pharmaceutical onto sludge from wastewater treatment plant Petržalka (26,066g/y for ciprofloxacin, 756g/y for azithromycin, 647g/y for clarithromycin, 445g/y for venlafaxine and 148g/y for citalopram).

There was virtually no resistance to minocycline among the strains tested. The eradication rate of H. pylori infection in first-line therapy was significantly lower for minocycline-containing regimen (38.5%, 15/39) than for clarithromycin-containing regimen (82.5%, 33/40; P < 0.01). For second-line therapy, a high eradication rate against metronidazole-sensitive strains was obtained with rabeprazole, minocycline and metronidazole (85%, 57/67).

A total of 314 PCP responses were included [140 (52%) men, age 48.2±12.9 years]. Of the total, 292 (93.0%) prescribed clarithromycin-based triple therapy for first-line treatment, 95 (30.3%) prescribed levofloxacin or bismuth-based protocols for second-line treatment, and 137 (43.6%) routinely confirmed eradication. Screening relatives of gastric cancer patients and screening before NSAID treatment was reported by 87 (30.9%) and 39 (14.1%) PCPs, respectively. Of all, 130 (45.0%) believed that the organism is definitely carcinogenic and only 188 (65.0%) agreed that H. pylori eradication reduces the risk of developing gastric cancer. Adherence with guidelines was associated with younger age, central urban clinic location, and a high volume of H. pylori patients.

Resistance of 235 Haemophilus influenzae clinical isolates from Istanbul Medical Faculty Hospital, Turkey were determined against 19 antibiotics by disc diffusion method, and minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of those found resistant to ampicillin, cefuroxim, chloramphenicol and meropenem were measured using E-test. Ampicillin-resistant isolates producing beta-lactamase as demonstrated by a nitrocefin assay were analyzed for the presence of TEM-1 and ROB-1 genes by PCR. Eleven percent of the isolates were resistant to ampicillin (10 µg/ml), of which 73% were beta-lactamase positive and carried TEM-1 gene, but none were positive for ROB-1 gene. All isolates susceptible to amoxicillin-clavulanate (20/10 µg/ml), azithromycin (15 µg/ml), aztreonam (30 µg/ml), cefotaxime (30 µg/ml), ceftriaxone (30 µg/ml), ciprofloxacin (5 µg/ml), levofloxacin (5 µg/ml), and telithromycin (15 µg/ml) but 24%, 15%, 4%, 4%, 2%, 1%, 1%, 0.5%, 0.5% and 0.5% were resistant to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (1.25/23.75 µg/ml), tetracycline (30 µg/ml), cefaclor (30 µg/ml), clarithromycin (15 µg/ml), cefuroxime (30 µg/ml), meropenem (10 µg/ml), chloramphenicol (30 µg/ml), ampicillin-sulbactam (10/10 µg/ml), nalidixic acid (30 µg/ml), and fosfomycin (30 µg/ml), respectively. MIC values of three cefuroxime-resistant isolates was 24, 48 and > 256 µg/ml, respectively; of two meropenem-resistant strains > 256 µg/ml; and of two chloramphenicol-susceptible isolates (by disc diffusion method) 6 µg/ml (considered as intermediate susceptible). Multiple- antibiotics resistance was detected in 15% of the strains, with resistance to 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 antibiotics in 8.5%, 4%, 2%, 0.5% and 0.5% of the isolates, respectively. By identifying beta-lactamase-negative ampicillin-resistant H. influenzae, empirical therapy with beta-lactam/beta-lactamase inhibitor combinations and second generation cephalosporins would be inappropriate for such patients (approximately 3%). Our findings will contribute to the epidemiological and clinical data regarding H. influenzae infection in Turkey.

The per-protocol eradication rate was 91.81% (101 patients from a total of 110) in group A, 85.84% (97 patients from a total of 113) in group B, and 92.85% (104 patients from a total of 112) in group C. The intention-to-treat eradication rate was 84.17% in group A, 80.83% in group B, and 86.67% in group C. The new protocol yielded the highest eradication rates by both per-protocol and intention-to-treat analyses followed by the standard triple and quadruple regimens, respectively. However, the differences were not statistically significant between the three groups.
252 patients (median age, 11.0 years; range, 3-18) presenting with chronic abdominal pain underwent endoscopy and a 13C-urea breath test. Gastric biopsy specimens were taken for histological examination and for the rapid urease test. Patients were treated for two weeks: group A (n = 63) received amoxicillin (50 mg/kg; maximum, 2 g/day), group B (n = 73) received amoxicillin and clarithromycin (20 mg/kg; maximum, 1 g/day). Both groups were randomly treated with either 1 or 2 mg/kg omeprazole (maximum, 80 mg/day). Diagnostic procedures were repeated four weeks after the end of treatment.
