The aerobic and anaerobic flora from gingival pockets of 49 dogs with severe gingivitis and periodontitis were cultured. The susceptibility of each isolate to four antimicrobial agents currently approved for veterinary use in the USA (amoxicillin-clavulanic acid; clindamycin; cefadroxil; and enrofloxacin) was determined. Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (Clavamox Pfizer Animal Health) had the highest in-vitro susceptibility against all isolates (96%), all aerobes (94%) and all anaerobes (100%) tested. For gram-negative aerobes, enrofloxacin (Baytril, Bayer Corp.) had the highest in-vitro susceptibility activity. For bacteria associated with treatment of gingivitis, which typically are mixed aerobic/anaerobic and gram-positive/gram-negative organisms, the antimicrobial of choice for clinical use based on these susceptibility tests is amoxicillin-clavulanic acid.

Data were obtained from two independent clinical trials. In an outpatient trial children (5 to 17 years of age) with uncomplicated skin and skin structure infections (SSSIs) were treated with linezolid or cefadroxil. In an inpatient trial hospitalized children (0 to 11 years of age) with pneumonia, bacteremia or complicated SSSI caused by resistant Gram-positive pathogens were administered iv linezolid with the option to switch to oral suspension (patients >90 days of age) or iv vancomycin. A subset of patients with MRSA infections from the two clinical trials is analyzed herein.

This randomized, blinded, comparator-controlled, multinational trial compared the efficacy and safety of linezolid and cefadroxil for treatment of uncomplicated skin/skin structure infections in pediatric patients. Children ages 5 to 11 years were to receive linezolid suspension [10 mg/kg (up to 600 mg)] or cefadroxil suspension [15 mg/kg (up to 500 mg)] every 12 h. Patients ages 12 to 17 years were to receive linezolid tablets (600 mg) or cefadroxil capsules (500 mg) every 12 h. Therapy lasted 10 to 21 consecutive days with a follow-up visit 10 to 21 days posttherapy.
An innovative, selective and rapid reversed phase High Performance Liquid Chromatographic (RP-HPLC) method for the analysis of cefadroxil in bulk material and oral solid dosage forms has been developed and validated. The chromatographic system consisted of Sil-20A auto sampler, LC-20A pump and SPD-20A UV/visible detector. The separation was achieved by C18 column at ambient temperature with a mobile phase consisting of methanol: Phosphate buffer (10: 90) at a flow rate of 1.5 ml/min. The method is reproducible, repeatable (%RSD for intra-day and inter-day ranged between 1.75-5.33% and 0.58-2.69%) and linear (R2=0.9935). The LOD and LOQ of the method were 0.5 and 1.0 μg/ml, respectively. The present RP-HPLC method was found to be sensitive, accurate, precise, rapid and cost effective that can be efficiently used in QC/QA laboratories for routine analysis of the raw materials as well as oral dosage formulations of cefadroxil.

Two different cefadroxil (CAS 50370-12-2) formulations were evaluated for their relative bioavailability in 24 healthy volunteers who received a single 500 mg oral dose of each preparation. An open, randomized clinical trial designed as a two-period crossover study with a 7-day washout period between doses was employed. Plasma samples for assessments of their cefadroxil concentration by HPLC-UV were obtained over 8 h after administration. Values of 48.94 +/- 10.18 pg x h/ml for test, and 48.51 +/- 9.02 microg x h/ml for the reference preparation AUC(0-t) demonstrate a nearly identical extend of drug absorption. Maximum plasma concentration Cmax of 16.04 +/- 4.94 microg/ml and 16.01 + 4.02 microg/ml achieved for the test and reference preparations did not differ significantly. The parametric 90% confidence intervals (CI) of the mean of the difference (test-reference) between log-transformed values of the two formulations were 96.80% to 104.51% and 92.01% to 107.00% for AUC(0-t) and Cmax, respectively. Since for both AUC(0-t) or Cmax the 90% CI values are within the interval proposed by the Food and Drug Administration, the test product is bioequivalent to the reference product for both the rate and extent of absorption after single dose administration.

A prospective, coordinated, randomized multicentre trial was conducted to determine whether tobramycin 160 mg intravenously (i.v.) once daily for 2 days would improve the efficacy of cefotaxime 1 g i.v. twice daily for 2 days followed by a 10-day course of oral cefadroxil 1 g twice daily, in the treatment of community-acquired acute pyelonephritis in women. Of 73 patients enrolled in the study, 51 could be evaluated according to the protocol. There were no significant differences in bacteriological cure rates between the combined treatment with tobramycin/cefotaxime and cefotaxime alone, either at short-term follow-up (63.0% vs 59.1%; 95% confidence interval (CI) for difference in proportions -23.4% to 31.2%), or up to 7 weeks after cessation of treatment (42.9% vs 52.2%; 95% CI, -18.0% to 36.6%). A modified intention-to-treat analysis showed no difference in clinical efficacy between the two regimens (68.6% vs 69.2%; 95% CI, -22.9% to 24.1%). Tobramycin seemed to enhance the resolution of inflammation by a more rapid decline in C-reactive protein levels. The high recurrence rates after treatment with beta-lactam antibiotics in this and previous studies of acute pyelonephritis may be explained by adverse ecological effects rather than failure to eradicate the infection.
The apparent functional molecular mass of the kidney peptide/H(+)-symporter was determined by radiation inactivation in brush-border membrane vesicles (BBMV) of rat kidney cortex. Purified BBMV were irradiated at low temperatures with high energy electrons generated by a 10-MeV linear accelerator at doses from 0 to 30 megarads. Uptake studies were performed with [3H]cefadroxil, a beta-lactam antibiotic which serves as a substrate for the kidney peptide/H(+)-symporter. Inhibition of influx of [3H]cefadroxil into BBMV was used to determine the functional molecular mass of the transporter. Additionally, direct photoaffinity labeling of the transport- and/or binding proteins for [3H]cefadroxil in control and irradiated BBMV was performed to determine the molecular mass of the putative transporter by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Initial rates of pH-gradient dependent uptake of [3H]cefadroxil decreased progressively as a function of radiation dose. The apparent radiation inactivation size (RIS) of the transport function was found to be 414 +/- 16 kDa. Direct photoaffinity labeling yielded labeled membrane proteins with apparent molecular masses of 130 kDa and 105 kDa, respectively. The proteins displayed different labeling characteristics with respect to incubation time, specificity and the response to irradiation. It appears that only a 105 kDa protein is directly involved in transport function since (a) only it showed a specific pH gradient dependent labeling pattern and (b) the covalent incorporation of [3H]cefadroxil into this protein decreased parallel to the loss of transport function in irradiated BBMV. The peptide/H(+)-symporter in kidney brush-border membranes therefore appears to have a monomer mass of 105 kDa and may function in an oligomeric arrangement.
The bacterial flora in patients referred with chronic bacterial prostatitis were studied. Only 13% had Gram-negative bacteria in significant numbers but 43% had Gram-positives using the same criteria. Half of the patients were symptom-free by the end of a 12-week course of antibiotics and remained so after 6 months; in one-third the symptoms were unchanged 6 months after completing treatment. The relief of symptoms correlated with the disappearance of white blood cells in the expressed prostatic secretion (EPS) and with a lowered pH in the EPS. Thus only 1 of the 14 patients without symptoms at 6 months had a significant growth of bacteria at the prostatic level, whereas 7 of 10 patients with unchanged symptoms had a significant bacterial colonisation. Although the initially infecting organism was eliminated in about half of the patients, new Gram-positive bacteria were isolated after treatment in 13 of 29 patients; 12 of these resolved spontaneously within 6 months. Five patients with Gram-positive bacteria were colonised with new Gram-negatives at the end of treatment. Two healed spontaneously but 3 remained colonised with Gram-negatives at the end of the follow-up period. These findings make it likely that many patients infected with Gram-positive bacteria benefit from antibiotic treatment. However, disturbances in the bacterial flora by antibiotic treatment may facilitate invasion by new types of bacteria.

Over a 10-y period, patients hospitalized with Pasteurella-induced cat or dog bite-associated wound infection were analysed retrospectively with regard to preceding antibiotic medication. In 10/14 cases, hospitalization was necessitated in spite of prophylactic or therapeutic administration of oral antibiotics. In 1 case, phenoxymethylpenicillin and flucloxacillin had been prescribed. The other patients received flucloxacillin (7 patients), erythromycin, or cefadroxil (1 patient each), agents that are not consistently active against Pasteurella. In conclusion, hospitalization due to Pasteurella-induced animal bite-associated wound infection seemed to be related to the prescription of suboptimal oral antibiotic therapy at a preceding medical consultation.
