The bromination of five selected pharmaceuticals (metoprolol, naproxen, amoxicillin, phenacetin, and hydrochlorothiazide) was studied with these compounds individually dissolved in ultra-pure water. The apparent rate constants for the bromination reaction were determined as a function of the pH, obtaining the sequence amoxicillin>naproxen>hydrochlorothiazide≈phenacetin≈metoprolol. A kinetic mechanism specifying the dissociation reactions and the species formed for each compound according to its pK(a) value and the pH allowed the intrinsic rate constants to be determined for each elementary reaction. There was fairly good agreement between the experimental and calculated values of the apparent rate constants, confirming the goodness of the proposed reaction mechanism. In a second stage, the bromination of the selected pharmaceuticals simultaneously dissolved in three water matrices (a groundwater, a surface water from a public reservoir, and a secondary effluent from a WWTP) was investigated. The pharmaceutical elimination trend agreed with the previously determined rate constants. The influence of the main operating conditions (pH, initial bromine dose, and characteristics of the water matrix) on the degradation of the pharmaceuticals was established. An elimination concentration profile for each pharmaceutical in the water matrices was proposed based on the use of the previously evaluated apparent rate constants, and the theoretical results agreed satisfactorily with experiment. Finally, chlorination experiments performed in the presence of bromide showed that low bromide concentrations slightly accelerate the oxidation of the selected pharmaceuticals during chlorine disinfection.

Neonatal sialadenitis of the submandibular gland is a very rare clinical entity. Information about the etiopathogenesis and management of the disease is very limited. Prematurity, prolonged gavage feeding and dehydration are the frequent causes. This report presents a rare case of isolated suppurative submandibular sialadenitis in a full-term newborn without any risk factors. Possible etiology, diagnosis and management of this uncommon disease are discussed.

A total of 360 H. pylori-positive patients suffering from dyspepsia and aging 24-79 years with a median age of 42 years were enrolled in the study and randomly allocated into the following three groups: group A (n = 120) received a standard 1-wk triple therapy (20 mg omeprazole b.i.d., 1000 mg amoxicillin b.i.d., 500 mg clarithromycin b.i.d.); group B (n = 120) received a 10-d standard quadruple therapy (20 mg omeprazole b.i.d., 1000 mg amoxicillin b.i.d., 240 mg colloidal bismuth subcitrate b.i.d., and 500 mg metronidazole b.i.d.); group C (n = 120) received the new protocol, i.e. 375 mg sultamicillin (225 mg ampicillin plus 150 mg sulbactam) b.i.d. (before breakfast and dinner), instead of amoxicillin in the standard quadruple therapy for the same duration. Chi-square test with the consideration of P<0.05 as significant was used to compare the eradication rates by intention-to-treat and per-protocol analyses in the three groups.

In routine daily testing, good detection of ESBLs bacteria, especially CTX-M can be obtained with phenotypic methods with VITEK 2/AES and by DDST with cefpodoxime, and ceftriaksone disks.
In uninvestigated dyspepsia, a negative test result for H. pylori reduces the number of GP contacts and endoscopy referrals compared to H. pylori-positive regardless of eradication therapy. Applied in real life, the test-and-treat strategy failed to reduce the number of endoscopies, but significantly reduced peptic ulcer disease and improved dyspeptic symptoms and quality of life.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the protective role of Lactobacilli against common bacterial opportunistic pathogens in vaginitis and study the effects of some antibiotics on Lactobacilli isolates.

Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most frequent diagnoses and reasons for prescribing antibiotics in children. The aims of this prospective study were the following: (1) to assess the continuing education of physicians and the sources of information about AOM; (2) to assess the current knowledge of and attitudes toward AOM as well as the compliance with AOM guidelines; (3) to evaluate opinions about vaccines against AOM; and (4) to estimate the potential costs of AOM on the healthcare system in Turkey.

Clinical isolates of Haemophilus influenzae from Japan (n = 296) and the United States (n = 100) were tested by the microdilution method for susceptibility in vitro to 10 beta-lactam antibiotics and molecular mechanisms of beta-lactam resistance. For all isolates, PCR was used to identify six elements, including beta-lactamase-producing ampicillin (AMP)-resistance (BLPAR) and beta-lactamase-nonproducing AMP-resistance (BLNAR) genes as follows: (1) TEM-1 type beta-lactamase gene, (2) ROB-1 type beta-lactamase gene, (3) part of normal ftsI gene encoding PBP3, which is involved in septal peptidoglycan synthesis, (4) a portion of the ftsI gene possessing some amino acid substitutions commonly detected in BLNAR strains, (5) p6 gene encoding P6 membrane proteins specific to H. influenzae, and (6) serotype b capsule gene. In Japanese and U.S. isolates, respective prevalences of each resistance class in Japan and the United States were 55.1% and 46% for beta-lactamase-nonproducing, AMP-susceptible (BLNAS); 3.0% and 26% for the TEM-1 type beta-lactamase gene; 0% and 10% for the ROB-1 type; 26.4% and 13% for low-BLNAR with a low degree of AMP resistance; and 13.2% and 0% for BLNAR strains. A few remaining isolates were beta-lactamase-producing strains with a mutation in the ftsI gene. MICs of all beta-lactam agents against low-BLNAR strains were 2-8 times higher than against BLNAS. MICs of cephalosporin antibiotics against BLNAR strains were 16-32 times higher than against BLNAS. The rank order of beta-lactam MIC90 values against BLNAR strains was piperacillin = ceftriaxone = cefditoren (0.25 microg/ml), meropenem (0.5), cefotaxime (1), AMP = cefpodoxime (8), cefdinir (16), amoxicillin (16), and cefaclor (64). Serotype b isolates were few in both countries (2.4% in Japan, 3% in the United States). Differences in proportions of respective AMP-resistant genes in H. influenzae isolates between the two countries might reflect differences in antibiotic agents ordinarily given to outpatients with community-acquired bacterial infections.

Plasma oxalate concentration increases during oral administration of beta-lactame antibiotics caused by increased intestinal absorption, as a result of saprophytic microflora deterioration. However intravewous administration of the same antibiotics does not change the concentration of plasma oxalate.

In Haripur district, Pakistan, 28 clusters were randomly assigned with stratification in a 1:1 ratio to intervention and control clusters by use of a computer-generated randomisation sequence. Children were included in the study if they were aged 2-59 months with WHO-defined severe pneumonia and living in the study area. In the intervention clusters, community-based LHWs provided mothers with oral amoxicillin (80-90 mg/kg per day or 375 mg twice a day for infants aged 2-11 months and 625 mg twice a day for those aged 12-59 months) with specific guidance on its use. In control clusters, LHWs gave the first dose of oral co-trimoxazole (age 2-11 months, sulfamethoxazole 200 mg plus trimethoprim 40 mg; age 12 months to 5 years, sulfamethoxazole 300 mg plus trimethoprim 60 mg) and referred the children to a health facility for standard of care. Participants, carers, and assessors were not masked to treatment assignment. The primary outcome was treatment failure by day 6. Analysis was per protocol with adjustment for clustering within groups by use of generalised estimating equations. This study is registered, number ISRCTN10618300.
All except 5 patients (2 patients, CRF group; 3 controls) had successful eradication (90.5% versus 85.7%). For patients not on dialysis therapy, serum creatinine levels and CrCls remained stable 4 weeks after treatment (serum creatinine, 3.68 +/- 1.09 versus 3.76 +/- 1.09 mg/dL [325 +/- 96 versus 332 +/- 96 micromol/L]; P = not significant [NS]; CrCl, 21.4 +/- 8.3 versus 22.2 +/- 6.9 mL/min/1.73 m2; P = NS).
