A total of 73 consecutive patients with nosocomial C. difficile-associated diarrhea were identified. C. difficile isolates were characterized using toxin-specific enzyme immunoassays, a tissue-culture fibroblast cytotoxicity assay, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and antimicrobial susceptibility tests. Rates of recurrence and of C. difficile colitis were recorded. Changes in antibiotic use and infection control policies were documented.

The intrapulmonary concentrations of MXF, LEV, and AZI were superior to those obtained in the plasma. The AM concentrations of all agents studied were more than adequate relative to the minimum concentration required to inhibit 90% of the organism population (MIC(90)) of the common intracellular pathogens (< 1 micro g/mL). These data indicate that attainable extracellular concentrations of AZI are insufficient to reliably eradicate Streptococcus pneumoniae, based on the agent's current minimum inhibitory concentration profile, whereas the mean concentrations of MXF and LEVO in the ELF exceed the MIC(90) of the S pneumoniae population. Moreover, MXF concentrations exceeded the S pneumoniae susceptibility breakpoint (1.0 micro g/mL) at all time points, while 2 of 15 concentrations (13%) failed to maintain LEVO concentrations above the breakpoint (2.0 micro g/mL) throughout the dosing interval.
Our decision analytic model focused on mild to moderate CAP, but did not consider severe CAP. Treatment pathways reflected empirical treatment initiated in the absence of data on CAP aetiology. First-line treatment consisted of moxifloxacin, co-amoxiclav, cefuroxime or clarithromycin. If first-line treatment was unsuccessful, patients were either hospitalised or second-line treatment with a different antimicrobial was initiated. Clinical failure rates were obtained from the published literature or expert opinion. Costs were calculated using published sources from the third-party payer perspective.

Although observational analyses of claims data provide large sample sizes and reflect routine care, they do have several inherent limitations. Since randomization of subjects is not possible, adequate statistical techniques must be used to ensure that patient characteristics are well-balanced between treatment groups. In addition, data may be missing or miscoded.
This pooled analysis of six prospective, multicentre trials aimed to determine the efficacy of moxifloxacin in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) due to penicillin-, macrolide- and multidrug-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae (MDRSP). At a central laboratory, isolates were identified and antimicrobial susceptibility determined (microbroth dilution). MDRSP was defined as resistance > or =3 drug classes. Patients received oral or sequential intravenous/oral 400 mg moxifloxacin once daily for 7-14 days. The primary endpoint was clinical success at test-of-cure for efficacy-valid patients with proven pretherapy S. pneumoniae infection. Of 140 S. pneumoniae isolated (112 respiratory, 28 blood), 23 (16.4%) were penicillin resistant, 26 (18.6%) macrolide resistant and 31 (22.1%) MDRSP. The moxifloxacin MIC90 was 0.25 microg/ml. Clinical cure with moxifloxacin was 95.4% (125/131) overall, and 100% (21/21) for penicillin-, 95.7% (22/23) for macrolide- and 96.4% (27/28) for multidrug-resistant strains. Moxifloxacin provided excellent clinical and bacteriological cure rates in CAP due to drug-resistant pneumococci.

Administration of intracameral cefuroxime is relatively cost-effective in preventing endophthalmitis after cataract surgery. Owing to their high costs, many commonly used topical antibiotics are not cost-effective compared with intracameral cefuroxime, even under optimistic assumptions about their efficacy.

Among 62 clinical strains of enterobacteria, isolated from intestinal tract, representatives of genus Escherichia made--67.4%, Klebsiella--4.84%, Citrobacter--4.84%, Enterobacter--8.06%, Proteus--6.45%, Morganella of 8.06%. Preparations of fluorquinolone group--gatifloxacin and moxifloxacin, the number of steady strains being from 0.0% to 33.3%, were the most effective in respect of enterobacteria The investigated strains of enterobacteria showed considerable resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics. The highest sensitivity has been noted to cefotaxim: Escherichia spp.--7.1%, Citrobacter spp.-0.0%, Klebsiella spp.--33.3%, Enterobacter spp.--20.0%, Proteus spp.--25.0%, Morganella spp.--20.0% of steady strains. Among 62 isolated strains of enterobacteria 48 produced beta-lactamases. Production of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) has been found out in 100% of strains of Klebsiella spp., 81.8% of Escherichia spp., 66.7% of Enterobacter spp., 33.3% of Citrobacter spp. and Proteus spp.--from total amount of strains producing beta-lactamases.
The dynamics of isolation of staphylococci and enterococci from clinical material of patients and their antibiotic susceptibility within a 5-year period (2005-2009) was analysed. 5990 isolates were tested: 1250 isolates of Staphylococcus aureus, 3268 isolates of S. epidermidis, 1005 isolates of Enterococcus faecalis and 467 isolates of E. faecium. Grampositive infections were shown to be prevailing within the last 2-3 years, the nosocomial epidermal staphylococci more and more replacing S. aureus (the ratio of S. epidermidis and S. aureus in 2009 was 3.3). The isolation rate of E. faecalis significantly increased (by 3.5 times) and the ratio of E. faecalis and E. faecium in 2009 was 4.3. The microflora composition with respect to the isolation source was analysed and its clinical significance was estimated. The study of the antibiotic susceptibility showed that oxacillin had its own specific niche, while antibiotics active against resistant grampositive cocci, such as rifampicin, fusidic acid, fluoroquinolones (moxifloxacin), cefoxitin, as well as amoxicillin/clavulane in infections due to E. faecalis, might be considered as the drugs of choice. In the treatment of nosocomial infections, when the etiological role of MRSA or VRE is suspected or confirmed, the complex therapy should obligatory include the most active antibiotics (vancomycin or linezolid among them).

Golden hamsters of both sexes, with weight 80 - 100 g, were inoculated with 100 LD50 of 48-hour agar culture of Burkholderia mallei (strain ts-5). Commercial preparations of 2 - 4th generations of fluoroquinolones: sparfloxacin (Sparflo, India), gemifloxacin (Faktiv, Russia), moxifloxacin (Avelox, Germany), pefloxacin (Abactal, Slovenia), levofloxacin (Eleflox, India), lomefloxacin (Lomeflox, India), ofloxacin (Russia). Urgent prophylaxis started 3 hours after inoculation with duration of 10 days, whereas treatment started 24 hours after inoculation with duration of 15 days. Daily dose of pefloxacin, ciprofloxacin, of loxacin was divided on 2 parts, which were administered with 12-hour interval; other drugswere administered once a day.

During the study period, the participating surgeons performed 20,013 uncomplicated surgeries. Of these, 16,209 patients (81%) received topical gatifloxacin and 3804 patients (19%) were treated with topical moxifloxacin as antiinfective prophylaxis. A total of 14 patients experienced endophthalmitis. The overall rate of endophthalmitis was 0.07%. There were 9 endophthalmitis patients in the gatifloxacin group and 5 endophthalmitis patients in the moxifloxacin group. The rate of endophthalmitis in the gatifloxacin group was 0.06% and the rate in the moxifloxacin group was 0.1%. The difference in the rate of endophthalmitis between the 2 groups was not statistically significant. In 10 of the patients, vitreous culture results were positive. Coagulase-negative staphylococci, followed by streptococci, species were the most commonly isolated organisms in the culture-positive patients.
The most common Gram-positive organisms isolated from the bloodstream of patients with hematological malignancies were coagulase-negative staphylococci (33%), Staphylococcus aureus (15%), viridans group streptococci (10%), and the enterococci (8%). Acute leukemias were the most common underlying malignancies, and 73% of patients were neutropenic when they developed their BSI. The newer generation quinolones--moxifloxacin and gatifloxacin--had the best overall in vitro activity against the Gram-positive isolates tested, and were at least 2 to 8-fold more potent than the early generation quinolones (ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin). Of the 477 isolates tested, 405 (85%) were from patients receiving quinolone (ciprofloxacin or levofloxacin) prophylaxis.
