Eligibility and trial quality was assessed by two reviewers independently.

Genomic DNA from the mouse pulmonary surfactant protein C (SP-C) gene was analyzed in transgenic mice to identify DNA essential for alveolar type II cell-specific expression. SP-C promoter constructs extending either 13 or 4.8 kb upstream of the transcription start site directed lung-specific expression of the bacterial chloramphenicol acetyl transferase (CAT) reporter gene. In situ hybridization analysis demonstrated alveolar cell-specific expression in the lungs of adult transgenic mice, and the pattern of 4.8 SP-C-CAT expression during development paralleled that of the endogenous SP-C gene. With the use of deletion constructs, lung-specific, low-level CAT activity was detected in tissue assays of SP-C-CAT transgenic mice retaining 318 bp of the promoter. In transient and stable cell transfection experiments, the 4.8-kb SP-C promoter was 90-fold more active as a stably integrated gene. These findings indicate that 1) the 4.8-kb SP-C promoter is sufficient to direct cell-specific and developmental expression, 2) an enhancer essential for lung-specific expression maps to the proximal 318-bp promoter, and 3) the activity of the 4.8-kb SP-C promoter construct is highly dependent on its chromatin environment.

At present, no evidence is available to support the routine use of systemic antibiotics in promoting healing of venous leg ulcers. However, the lack of reliable evidence means that it is not possible to recommend the discontinuation of any of the agents reviewed. In terms of topical preparations, some evidence supports the use of cadexomer iodine. Current evidence does not support the routine use of honey- or silver-based products. Further good quality research is required before definitive conclusions can be drawn about the effectiveness of povidone-iodine, peroxide-based preparations, ethacridine lactate, chloramphenicol, framycetin, mupirocin, ethacridine or chlorhexidine in healing venous leg ulceration. In light of the increasing problem of bacterial resistance to antibiotics, current prescribing guidelines recommend that antibacterial preparations should be used only in cases of clinical infection, not for bacterial colonisation.
Cationic lipid structure, cationic lipid/DNA ratio, particle size, co-lipid content and topology of the plasmid, were found to significantly affect transgene expression. Complexation with lipids was found to have a protective effect on DNA integrity in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF). DNA complexed with lipid showed enhanced persistence in rat lungs as measured by quantitative polymerase chain reaction.

Novel mdfA gene variants were identified simultaneously from 3 of 13 positive isolates of PCR amplification in Escherichia coli from patients. These 13 positive isolates showed resistance to chloramphenicol, tetracycline, and erythromycin. The 3 mdfA gene variants were of the same genotype and all the 13 positive isolates were investigated by conjugation experiment, EcoRI restriction, and gene mapping. Conjugation experiments demonstrated that the novel mdfA variant and mdfA genes were located on plasmids that were restricted by EcoRI for ∼8.2 kb-length, which was also validated by gene mapping. Further study indicated three types of genetic structures (A, B, and C) in the recombinant plasmids harboring mdfA and surrounding genes, and structure B was first reported in the article. Structure A comprises two partial-length and six full-length genes, including the mdfA gene variant in the recombinant plasmid; structure B comprises four full-length genes, the mdfA, ybjG, dacC, and ybjI; structure C comprises two full-length genes, the mdfA and dacC. These results suggested that the mdfA gene can function as transporter responsible for multidrug resistance and also mediated the synergistic function with its surrounding genes in conjugative plasmids.

Ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin exhibited mechanism A (requires cell division as well as bacterial protein and RNA synthesis to kill bacteria) and C (active against nondividing bacteria but requires protein and RNA synthesis) against the reference strain Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923, yet only mechanism A was exhibited by these fluoroquinolones when tested against three clinical isolates: S. aureus Sa-215, Staphylococcus epidermidis Se-81 and Staphylococcus haemolyticus Sx-1. On the contrary, fleroxacin exerted mechanism A and C against the three clinical isolates but only mechanism A against the reference strain. Ofloxacin displayed mechanism A against S. epidermidis Se-81, mechanism A and C against S. haemolyticus and mechanism A and B (active against nondividing bacteria and does not require protein and RNA synthesis) against the two S. aureus tested. Sparfloxacin showed mechanism A and C against the four Staphylococcus species studied, and temafloxacin was the only fluoroquinolone tested that exhibited mechanism A and B against the four bacterial strains assayed. No correlation was found between the in vitro bactericidal activity (expressed as minimum inhibitory concentration and optimal bactericidal concentration) and the mechanisms of action exhibited by these fluoroquinolones.

Fifty-five of the isolates were positive for class 1 integrons. Integron-positive isolates represented 17 different serovars and were mainly from human (n=28) and animal (n=13) sources. The gene cassette arrangements could be determined in 51 of the positive isolates, which harboured one [dfrA22, aadA1 or orf3 (putative trimethoprim resistance)], two [aadA1-dfrA1, aac(6')-Ib-orf1 (unknown function) or aacA4-aadA1], three [dfrA15b-cmlA4-aadA2, orf2 (unknown function)-dfrA5-orfD] or four [orf4-aacA4-blaOXA-30 (interrupted by an IS1 element)-aadA1] cassettes in their variable region. Only one isolate harboured a class 2 integron with the gene cassette array dfrA1-sat-aadA1. Several integron unrelated resistance genes were also detected in the isolates. Sulphonamide resistance was primarily mediated by sul2 and sul3, tetracycline resistance by tet(B) and tet(A), chloramphenicol resistance by catA1, streptomycin resistance by strA and ampicillin resistance by blaTEM. blaCTX and blaCMY-2 were found in cephalosporin-resistant isolates. Mating and hybridization experiments demonstrated that a high-molecular-weight plasmid mediated the gene transfer of integrons and additional resistance determinants.

These sympatric rodent species had no obvious contact with antimicrobials, and the difference in resistance profiles between rodent species and seasons suggests that factors present in their environment are unlikely to be drivers of such resistance.

A simple and rapid liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS-MS) confirmation method for the analysis chloramphenicol (CAP) in milk powder has been developed. Samples were extracted by using liquid-liquid extraction steps with ethyl acetate. Lipids were removed using hexsan. LC separation was achieved by using a Phenomenex Luna C-18 column and acetonitryle-water as a mobile phase. The mass spectrometer was operated in multiple reaction monitoring mode (MRM) with negative electro-spray interface (ESI-). The four transitions were monitored m/z 321-->257, 321-->194, 321-->152, 326-->157 (IS) and for quantification, the transition m/z 321-->152 was chosen. Validation of the method was done according to criteria of Decision Commission No 2002/657 EC. Validation includes the determination of specification, linearity, precision (within- and between-day), accuracy, decision limit (CC alpha) and detection capability (CC beta). Samples were fortified at CAP levels 0.30, 0.45 and 0.60 microg/kg with CAP-5d as internal standard. The precision within-day (RSD%) was lower than 12% and accuracy (RE%) ranged from -9.8 to -3.7%. The precision between-day (RSD%) was less than 15%. The limit of decision (CC alpha) and detection capability (CC beta) for milk powder 0.09 and 0.11 microg/kg. Value CC alpha and CC beta were calculated for the 321-->152 ion transition. This method has been successfully used for routine analysis.
