Objectives and methods : armA is a novel plasmid-borne 16S rRNA methyltransferase that confers high-level resistance to 4,6-disubstituted deoxystreptamines. Recently, we have isolated from a high-level broad-spectrum aminoglycoside-resistant Escherichia coli animal isolate a plasmid, pMUR050,...
Objectives : To characterize the genetic determinants involved in the reduced susceptibility to ciprofloxacin and cefotaxime in Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis clinical isolates obtained from four patients in summer 2003 in Hong Kong. Methods : Three Salmonella Enteritidis isolates from...
Objectives : Amoxicillin and clarithromycin have been proven to be effective in the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia. This study investigated the in vivo bactericidal efficacy of a novel, pulsatile dosing strategy for amoxicillin and clarithromycin, when used as monotherapy and...
Objectives : Candida species have emerged as important causes of invasive infections and rates of resistance to standard antifungal therapies are rising. The objective of this study was to define the occurrence of, risk factors for, and antifungal susceptibilities of invasive Candida species...
Although quinolone resistance results mostly from chromosomal mutations in Enterobacteriaceae, it may also be mediated by plasmid-encoded Qnr determinants. Qnr proteins protect DNA from quinolone binding and compromise the efficacy of quinolones such as nalidixic acid. Qnr proteins (QnrA-like,...
Objectives : Pyrrolo(2,1- c )(1,4)benzodiazepine (PBD) dimers are synthetic sequence-selective interstrand DNA minor-groove cross-linking agents developed from anthramycins. We investigated the antibacterial activity of three dimers, SJG-136, DRG-16 and ELB-21, which differ in the structure of...
Objectives : To develop effective and targeted interventions to improve care for patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), insight is needed into the factors that influence the quality of antibiotic use. Therefore, we measured the performance of nine quality indicators and studied...
The UK has experienced a sudden rise in extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) rates, largely due to the appearance and spread of Escherichia coli producing CTX-M-15 type β-lactamase. The British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy organized two update meetings during 2004 to report and...
