Because of its broad spectrum of antibacterial action, Norfloxacin, a new quinoline carboxylic acid compound, was formulated in a topical cream base and tested for activity against a variety of bacteria and yeasts isolated from burn patients. An in vitro agar well diffusion topical susceptibility test was used. The silver salt of Norfloxacin also was tested. For comparative purposes, commonly used topical antibacterial and antifungal preparations were examined as well. No bacterial isolate tested was resistant to the action of Norfloxacin or that of silver-Norfloxacin. Furthermore, all Candida organisms assayed were susceptible to silver-Norfloxacin. All other topical agents tested had some strains of bacteria or yeast, or both, that were resistant to their action. Therefore, Norfloxacin and, particularly, silver-Norfloxacin, warrant further development as topical anti-infective agents for use in treating burn patients.

Shigellosis is a global human health problem. Four species of Shigella i.e. S. dysenteriae, S. flexneri, S. boydii and S. sonnei are able to cause the disease. These species are subdivided into serotypes on the basis of O-specific polysaccharide of the LPS. Shigella dysenteriae type 1 produces severe disease and may be associated with life-threatening complications. The symptoms of shigellosis include diarrhoea and/or dysentery with frequent mucoid bloody stools, abdominal cramps and tenesmus. Shigella spp. cause dysentery by invading the colonic mucosa. Shigella bacteria multiply within colonic epithelial cells, cause cell death and spread laterally to infect and kill adjacent epithelial cells, causing mucosal ulceration, inflammation and bleeding. Transmission usually occurs via contaminated food and water or through person-to-person contact. Laboratory diagnosis is made by culturing the stool samples using selective/differential agar media. Shigella spp. are highly fragile organism and considerable care must be exercised in collecting faecal specimens, transporting them to the laboratories and in using appropriate media for isolation. Antimicrobial agents are the mainstay of therapy of all cases of shigellosis. Due to the global emergence of drug resistance, the choice of antimicrobial agents for treating shigellosis is limited. Although single dose of norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin has been shown to be effective, they are currently less effective against S. dysenteriae type 1 infection. Newer quinolones, cephalosporin derivatives, and azithromycin are the drug of choice. However, fluoroquinolone-resistant S. dysenteriae type 1 infection have been reported. Currently, no vaccines against Shigella infection exist. Both live and subunit parenteral vaccine candidates are under development. Because immunity to Shigella is serotype-specific, the priority is to develop vaccine against S. dysenteriae type 1 and S. flexneri type 2a. Shigella species are important pathogens responsible for diarrhoeal diseases and dysentery occurring all over the world. The morbidity and mortality due to shigellosis are especially high among children in developing countries. A recent review of literature (Kotloff et al.,1999) concluded that, of the estimated 165 million cases of Shigella diarrhoea that occur annually, 99% occur in developing countries, and in developing countries 69% of episodes occur in children under five years of age. Moreover, of the ca.1.1 million deaths attributed to Shigella infections in developing countries, 60% of deaths occur in the under-five age group. Travellers from developed to developing regions and soldiers serving under field conditions are also at an increased risk to develop shigellosis.

Hollow fiber (HF) and flat sheet (FS) Sponge MBRs were operated at 10-20 LMH flux treating hospital wastewater. Simultaneous nitrification denitrification (SND) occurred considerably with TN removal rate of 0.011-0.020mg TN mgVSS(-1)d(-1). Furthermore, there was a remarkable removal of antibiotics in both Sponge MBRs, namely Norfloxacin (93-99% (FS); 62-86% (HF)), Ofloxacin (73-93% (FS); 68-93% (HF)), Ciprofloxacin (76-93% (FS); 54-70% (HF)), Tetracycline (approximately 100% for both FS and HF) and Trimethoprim (60-97% (FS); 47-93% (HF). Whereas there was a quite high removal efficiency of Erythromycin in Sponge MBRs, with 67-78% (FS) and 22-48% (HF). Moreover, a slightly higher removal of antibiotics in FS than in HF achieved, with the removal rate being of 0.67-32.40 and 0.44-30.42µgmgVSS(-1)d(-1), respectively. In addition, a significant reduction of membrane fouling of 2-50 times was achieved in HF-Sponge MBR for the flux range.

About 10% of 100 clinical isolates of Enterococcus faecalis were resistant to greater than or equal to 25 micrograms of norfloxacin, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and temafloxacin per ml. In this study, the DNA gyrase of E. faecalis was purified from a fluoroquinolone-susceptible strain (ATCC 19433) and two resistant isolates, MS16968 and MS16996. Strains MS16968 and MS16996 were 64- to 128-fold and 16- to 32-fold less susceptible, respectively, to fluoroquinolones than was ATCC 19433; MICs of nonquinolone antibacterial agents for these strains were almost equal. The DNA gyrase from ATCC 19433 had two subunits, designated A and B, with properties similar to those of DNA gyrase from other gram-positive bacteria such as Bacillus subtilis and Micrococcus luteus. Inhibition of the supercoiling activity of the enzyme from ATCC 19433 by the fluoroquinolones correlated with their antibacterial activities. In contrast, preparations of DNA gyrase from MS16968 and MS16996 were at least 30-fold less sensitive to inhibition of supercoiling by the fluoroquinolones than the gyrase from ATCC 19433 was. Experiments that combined heterologous gyrase subunits showed that the A subunit from either of the resistant isolates conferred resistance to fluoroquinolones. These findings indicate that an alteration in the gyrase A subunit is the major contributor to fluoroquinolone resistance in E. faecalis clinical isolates. A difference in drug uptake may also contribute to the level of fluoroquinolone resistance in these isolates.

The comparative in-vitro activities of fleroxacin and norfloxacin were determined by standard agar dilution and broth micro-dilution methods in four different culture media, varying the pH of the medium (pH 5 to pH 8) and the inoculum size. Four inoculum densities equivalent to approximately 10(3), 10(4), 10(5) and 10(6) colony forming units per well or spot were prepared for each of five reference test strains (Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, E. coli ATCC 35218, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923, S. aureus ATCC 29213 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853). The antibacterial activity of fleroxacin was similar overall to that of norfloxacin and rather uniform. The influence of the test conditions was moderate. However, the activity of both quinolones was uniformly lower at pH 5 in urine and against a high inoculum of 10(6) cfu/spot or well of S. aureus.

Twelve randomized control trials involving 1063 patients were included. One study that had a serious flaw was rated poor in quality, one study rated good, and the remainder fair. No significant differences in prophylactic antibiotic treatment with nitrofurantoin and norfloxacin, trimethoprim, sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim, methamine hippurate, estriol, or cefaclor were found in clinical or microbiological cure in adult nonpregnant women with recurrent urinary tract infections (9 randomized control trials, 673 patients, relative risk ratio, 1.06; 95% confidence interval, 0.89-1.27; I(2), 65%; and 12 randomized control trials, 1063 patients, relative risk ratio, 1.06; 95% confidence interval, 0.90-1.26; I(2), 76%, respectively). Duration of prophylaxis also did not have a significant impact on outcomes. There was a statistically significant difference in overall adverse effects, with nitrofurantoin resulting in greater risk than other prophylactic treatments (10 randomized control trials, 948 patients, relative risk ratio, 2.17; 95% confidence interval, 1.34-3.50; I(2), 61%). Overall, the majority of nitrofurantoin adverse effects were gastrointestinal, with a significant difference for withdrawals (12 randomized control trials, 1063 patients, relative risk ratio, 2.14; 95% confidence interval, 1.28-3.56; I(2), 8%).

MIC (minimal inhibitory concentration) determinations for nalidixic acid, cinoxacin, pipemidic acid, norfloxacin, enoxacin, and ciprofloxacin were done by agar dilution on isosensitest agar (oxoid). Bacterial strains investigated were 189 Pseudomonas aeruginosa, 164 Acinetobacter lwoffii, 4 Ps. maltophilia, 3 Ps. putrefaciens and 3 Ps. odorans. The results in summary are: Ciprofloxacin is the most active gyrase inhibitor against Ps. aeruginosa as well as against other nonfermentative gram-negative rods, versus Ps. aeruginosa norfloxacin is a little more active than ofloxacin, against nonfermentative gram-negative rods other than Ps. aeruginosa norfloxacin is markedly less active than ofloxacin. Problems concerning cross-resistance of new gyrase inhibitors are discussed.

P. mirabilis stilled sensitive to cefotaxim or ceftazidim and to TZP. The significant increase in the rate resistance to AMC and TZP could be explained by production of beta-lactamases and in particular extended-spectrum beta-lactamases. The increase in resistance observed for fluoroquinolones become a major concern. Amikacine was the most active aminoglycosides. These data suggested for the re-enforcement of the antimicrobial susceptibility surveillance in order to optimise the rational use of antibiotics.

Paper-substrate delay fluorimetry (PS-DF) for three quinolones, i.e. Pefloxacin, Norfloxacin and Pepemidic acid, were given. Various factors affecting the PS-DF intensity of quinolones, including pH condition, drying time of sample etc., were studied in detail. The experiments showed that the PS-DF intensities of three quinolones in acidic solution were stronger than those in other conditions. The proper pH was 1.6. These quinolones have wide dynamic ranges, low limit of detection and relatively small standard deviations. The method was fast with, a small amount of sample and low cost. The recovery was 98.5%-104%. The determination results of the samples were satisfactory.

At T0, 53 out of 89 patients (60%) in the control and 48 out of 70 patients (69%) in the study group harbored coagulase-negative Staphylococcus. Among these coagulase-negative Staphylococcus, 12 out of 53 in the control and 11 out of 48 in the study group were resistant to ofloxacin (p>0.9999). At T1, significantly fewer coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (p=0.0003) were isolated from the study group (18 coagulase-negative Staphylococcus), compared the control group (48 coagulase-negative Staphylococcus). Of these, 5 out of 17 coag-ulase-negative Staphylococcus in the study group and 9 out of 48 coagulase-negative Staphylococcus in the control group were resistant to ofloxacin (p=0.5649). There was no significant difference in the number of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus resistant to ciprofloxacin or norfloxacin in the study group compared to the control group at T1.

Bacterial resistance to quinolones is essentially the result of mutations on several genes involved in the synthesis of DNA-gyrase or in proteins of the cellular envelope. A single mutational event may lead to complete resistance to older quinolones, but clinical resistance to newer quinolones such as norfloxacin requires two or more mutations. Prevention of resistance to norfloxacin requires prevention of the strains carrying 'first mutations' (by a controlled use of older quinolones) and the early detection of such strains. If microbiologic and pharmacologic data are taken into account at the same time, the incidence of norfloxacin-resistant strains in urinary tract infections will remain insignificant.

Quinolones are potent antimicrobial agents with a basic chemical structure of bicyclic ring. Fluorine atom at position C-6 and various substitutions on the basic quinolone structure yielded fluoroquinolones, namely norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin and numerous other agents. The target molecules of quinolones and fluoroquinolones are bacterial gyrase and topoisomerase IV enzymes. Broad-spectrum and excellent tissue penetration make fluoroquinolones potent agents but their toxic side effects and increasing number of resistant pathogens set limits on their use. This review focuses on recent advances concerning quinolones and fluoroquinolones, we will be summarising chemical structure, mode of action, pharmacokinetic properties and toxicity. We will be describing fluoroquinolones introduced in clinical trials, namely avarofloxacin, delafloxacin, finafloxacin, zabofloxacin and non-fluorinated nemonoxacin. These agents have been proved to have enhanced antibacterial effect even against ciprofloxacin resistant pathogens, and found to be well tolerated in both oral and parenteral administrations. These features are going to make them potential antimicrobial agents in the future.

The use of cefazolin in cirrhotic patients after endoscopic interventions for acute variceal hemorrhage reduced infections. A trend of actuarial probability of remaining free of early rebleeding (<7 days) was observed, especially in Child-Pugh class A patients. This study may be hampered by the small sample size and more large-scale studies are mandatory.

An aminoglycoside-resistant strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was injected intrastromally into the corneas of rabbits, and keratitis was allowed to develop over a 22-h period. Rabbits were treated with either 0.75% ciprofloxacin, 1% norfloxacin, or 1.36% tobramycin administered topically every 15 min for 1 h and then every 30 min for the following 3 h. All therapy ceased 26 h postinoculation. Rabbits were killed 1 h after the treatment, and the number of bacteria per cornea were quantified in terms of bacterial colony-forming units. Aqueous humor specimens were obtained from rabbits receiving norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin, and bioassays were performed to determine drug concentration. Ciprofloxacin caused a 5 log reduction in the number of bacterial colony-forming units, as compared with untreated controls (p less than 0.0001); it also produced a significantly greater reduction in bacterial colony-forming units than either norfloxacin or fortified tobramycin drops (p less than 0.0001). Norfloxacin produced a 2 log reduction in bacterial colony-forming units, as compared with untreated controls (p less than 0.0001). The mean aqueous concentration of norfloxacin (7.5 micrograms/ml) was substantially less than that achieved by ciprofloxacin (30.5 micrograms/ml). We conclude that ciprofloxacin may be a useful broad spectrum, topical chemotherapeutic agent in the therapy of aminoglycoside-resistant P. aeruginosa keratitis.

A series of 6-methyl-4-[1-(2-substituted-phenylamino-acetyl)-1H-indol-3-yl]-2-oxo/thioxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrimidine-5-carboxylic acid ethyl esters (1-16) were synthesized and evaluated in vitro for their antimicrobial and anticancer potential. 6-Methyl-4-{1-[2-(4-nitro-phenylamino)-acetyl]-1H-indol-3-yl}-2-thioxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrimidine-5-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (15, pMIC(ec) = 2.50 μM/mL) was found to be almost equipotent to the standard drug, norfloxacin (pMIC(ec) = 2.61 μM/mL) against Escherichia coli and emerged as most potent antimicrobial agent (pMIC(am) = 1.84 μM/mL). 4-{1-[2-(2-Chloro-4-nitro-phenylamino)-acetyl]-1H-indol-3-yl}-6-methyl-2-oxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrimidine-5-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (4, IC(50) = 5 μg/mL) was more potent than the standard drug 5-fluorouracil (IC(50) = 6 μg/mL) against HCT-116 a colon cancer cell line, and emerged as the most potent anticancer agent. The QSAR studies demonstrated the importance of topological parameter, Balaban index (J) followed by lipophillic parameter, log P in describing the antimicrobial activity of the synthesized compounds.

The therapeutic effectiveness of a single oral dose (60 and 200 mg/kg body weight) of fosfomycin trometamol (FT), norfloxacin, trimethoprim sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim) and pipemidic acid against experimental cystitis in the rat were compared. Infections were produced with clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis and Escherichia coli in a total of 135 Sprague-Dawley albino rats. Oral treatment with all four drugs consistently lowered the numbers of CFU in bladder tissue, especially E. coli and P. mirabilis. Fosfomycin trometamol appeared to be as effective as norfloxacin for treatment of E. coli cystitis even thoughs its minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) in vitro is 100 times greater than that of the quinolonic antibiotic. Fosfomycin trometamol, pipemidic acid and Bactrim were equally effective against P. mirabilis infection, but FT was less active than norfloxacin or Bactrim for treatment of K. pneumonia cystitis. In conclusion, single dose treatment with fosfomycin trometamol was effective for treatment of experimental cystitis in the rat and might, by extrapolation, be of use in clinical practice for single dose treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections.

In this study, solid phase extraction (SPE) and ultra performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) were utilized to develop a rapid, sensitive and reliable method for trace analysis of 21 antibiotics belonging to 7 classes in influent and effluent of municipal wastewater treatment plant. Detection parameters for SPE preconcentration and UPLC-MS/MS analysis were optimized, including sample pH, eluant, mobile phase (solvent and formic acid concentration), column temperature, and flow rate. Under the optimal conditions, the recoveries for different antibiotics ranged from 60.5% to 109.7% and all analytes were detected within 10.0 min by UPLC-MS/MS. The validation study indicated that the method detection limits (MDLs) for the 21 antibiotics were from 0.3 to 60.0 ng L(-1) for effluent, while higher MDLs (0.5-84.0 ng L(-1)) for influent. Accuracy and precision for both within-run (-11.6 to 14.3% and 0.2 to 15.6%) and between-run tests (-7.2 to 8.7% and 1.9 to 16.4%) were acceptable. The analysis of influent and effluent samples of two municipal wastewater treatment plants in Hong Kong revealed the presence of 11 antibiotics, including ampicillin, cefalexin, sulfamethoxazole, sulfadiazine, norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, tetracycline, roxithromycin, erythromycin-H2O, and trimethoprim. Their concentration ranged from 3.5 to 720.0 ng L(-1) in influent and from 2.1 to 556.4 ng L(-1) in effluent.

When a bactericidal antibiotic is added to a growing bacterial culture, the great majority of the bacterial population is killed but a small number of metabolically quiescent bacteria called persisters survive antibiotic treatment. The mechanism of this bacterial persistence is poorly understood. In Escherichia coli, we identified a new persistence gene, phoU, whose inactivation leads to a generalized higher susceptibility than that of the parent strain to a diverse range of antibiotics, including ampicillin, norfloxacin, and gentamicin, and stresses, such as starvation, acid pH, heat, peroxide, weak acids, and energy inhibitors, especially in stationary phase. The PhoU mutant phenotype could be complemented by a functional phoU gene. Mutation in PhoU leads to a metabolically hyperactive status of the cell, as shown by an increased expression of energy production genes, flagella, and chemotaxis genes and a defect in persister formation. PhoU, whose expression is regulated by environmental changes like nutrient availability and age of culture, is a global negative regulator beyond its role in phosphate metabolism and facilitates persister formation by the suppression of many important cellular metabolic processes. A new model of persister formation based on PhoU as a persister switch is proposed. PhoU may be an ideal drug target for designing new drugs that kill persister bacteria for more effective control of bacterial infections.

A series of polyfluoro-3-quinolonecarboxylic acids have been synthesized and their in vitro antibacterial activity evaluated. The desired 7-(substituted amino) derivatives were prepared from the 5,6,7,8-tetrafluoroquinolone acids. Conversely, amine displacement occurred primarily at the 5-position when the ester was used. Structure-activity studies indicated that the antibacterial activity was greatest when the N-1 substituent was cyclopropyl and the 7-substituent was 4-methyl-1-piperazinyl. All 5-(substituted amino) derivatives showed poor in vitro activity.

Fowl typhoid (FT) reported since 1992 in Korea is a septicemic disease of domestic birds caused by Salmonella gallinarum (S. gallinarum). The purpose of this study was to investigate the biochemical characteristics and antimicrobials susceptibility of field isolates of S. gallinarum isolated by year in Korea. A total of 258 isolates of S. gallinarum from 1995 to 2001 showed the same pattern in the majority of biochemical test such as IMViC (indole, methyl red, Voges-Proskauer and citrate utilization), carbohydrate fermentation and amino acid decarboxylation, and these results were almost in accordance with the traditional biochemical characteristics of S. gallinarum strain. When the antimicrobial susceptibility test against 258 isolates of S. gallinarum was performed by the disk diffusion method using 12 antimicrobial agents, all isolates from 1995 appeared to be susceptible to all of the antimicrobial agents tested except for tetracycline and oxytetracycline, whereas the vast majority of isolates from 2001 showed the reduced susceptibility to ampicillin (13.0%), gentamicin (43.4%), kanamycin (69.6%), enrofloxacin (6.5%), ciprofloxacin (10.9%), norfloxacin (52.5%) and ofloxacin (82. 6%). The prevalence of the prevalence of completely resistant isolates resistant isolates to one or more drugs rapidly increased from 0% in 1995 to 93.5% in 2001. The minimal concentrations range of the majority of antimicrobial agents to inhibit 50% (MIC50s) against S. gallinarum isolates increased from 0.06 approximately 8 microg/ml in 1997 to 2 approximately 256 microg/ml in 2001. Especially, MIC50s for gentamicin and fluoroquinolones of isolates from 2001 increased over 10-fold than those of isolates from 1997. Therefore, our results indicate that sorbitol fermentation and arginine decarboxylation showed the diversity by isolates and the vast majority of isolates from 2001 showed the reduced susceptibility to antimicrobials tested.

Caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline are among the most widely consumed compounds in beverages and in pharmaceutical preparations. These methylxanthine alkaloids are metabolized by similar pathways involving demethylation and hydroxylation that are predominantly cytochrome P-450 mediated. In vivo and in vitro evidence suggests that the buy noroxin cytochrome P-450 isozymes involved in the demethylation pathways are distinct from the cytochrome P-450 isozymes involved in the hydroxylation pathways. Although distinctions can be made between demethylation and hydroxylation pathways, the evidence suggests that these different cytochrome P-450 isozymes are under common regulatory control. Any drug inhibiting the family of cytochrome P-450 isozymes involved in the metabolism of the methylxanthines would, therefore, be expected to have a similar effect on theophylline, theobromine, and caffeine. A number of quinolones, including enoxacin, pipemidic acid, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, and pefloxacin, have been shown to reduce the clearance of theophylline, while lomefloxacin has no effect on theophylline or caffeine clearance. It has been hypothesized that only fluoroquinolones that form a 4-oxo-metabolite inhibit theophylline clearance. Lomefloxacin, which does not form a 4-oxo-metabolite, would therefore not be expected to inhibit the clearance of theophylline or caffeine. In contrast, ciprofloxacin, which does form a 4-oxo-metabolite, has been shown to reduce theophylline and caffeine clearances by about one third. Another hypothesis for the differences among quinolones suggests that quinolones that have a greater impact on theophylline clearances are more stereochemically similar to theophylline. Substitutions at position 8 on the quinolone nucleus (as in lomefloxacin) would result in stearic hindrance and decrease the structural similarity to theophylline.

The occurrence of 17 relevant pharmaceuticals and 7 heavy metals in the waters of the Pego-Oliva Marsh Natural Park (Valencia Community, Spain) were monitored. Thirty buy noroxin four zones (including the lagoon and the most important irrigation channels), covering the main land uses and water sources, were selected for sampling. Thirty three of them were contaminated with at least one pharmaceutical. Ibuprofen and codeine were the pharmaceuticals more frequently detected, in concentrations between 4.8 and 1.2 ng/L and a maximum of 59 ng/L and 63 ng/L, respectively. Regarding metals, Zn showed values under the detection limit in all the samples, while Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Ni and Pb were detected at concentrations lower than the WHO and EU maximum levels for drinking waters. Ni showed significant direct correlations with diazepam, norfloxacin, ofloxacin and fenofibrate, and inverse relationships with ibuprofen, at 99 and 95% of significance. Cu, Co and Cr also showed significant correlations with some of the pharmaceuticals. These interactions could favor the synergistic/antagonistic interactions among pharmaceuticals and metals in the marsh, which can affect its aquatic fauna and flora or even human health. The influences of the water sources, land uses and spatial distribution of both types of contaminants were also studied.

An inhibition of the cardiac buy noroxin rapid delayed rectifier K(+) current (I(Kr)) and of the ATP-sensitive K(+) (K(ATP)) current seems to be involved in the mechanisms of the cardiotoxic effects and the alterations in glucose homeostasis, respectively, induced by some fluoroquinolones. The aim of the present study was to compare the effects of fluoroquinolone derivatives on the pore-forming subunit of the cardiac I(Kr), which is encoded by human ether-a-go-go-related gene (HERG), and on the ATP-sensitive K(+) (K(ATP)) channel from the clonal insulinoma cell line RINm5F. Sparfloxacin blocked HERG currents half-maximally (IC(50) value) at a concentration of 33.2 microM, whereas norfloxacin and lomefloxacin each tested at a concentration of 300 microM inhibited HERG currents only by 2.8+/-3.6% and 12.3+/-4.7%, respectively. Four newly synthesized fluoroquinolone derivatives with either a p-fluoro-phenyl (compound C3) or an o-fluoro-phenyl (compound C4) substituent at position N(1) and an additional dimethylated piperazine ring (compounds C1 and C2) inhibited HERG currents by 7.3-14.7% at test concentrations of 100 microM. The rank order of potency for the inhibition of K(ATP) currents was C2>C1, C4, sparfloxacin>C3. In conclusion, the structural requirements for fluoroquinolones to inhibit I(Kr) currents and K(ATP) currents appear to differ. The amino group at position C(5) seems to be primarily responsible for the strong HERG current blocking property of sparfloxacin. In contrast, for the block of pancreatic beta-cell K(ATP) currents by fluoroquinolones the substituents at positions N(1), C(7) and C(8) all might play a role.

Biochars were produced using a Dianchi Lake sediment at different temperatures and their sorption characteristics with five organic contaminants (with solubilities varied three orders of magnitude) were compared. Freundlich model showed satisfying fitting results of the sorption isotherms. Distinct decrease of nonlinear factors was observed for all five contaminants with pyrolysis suggesting wider energy distribution of the sorption sites after pyrolysis. buy noroxin No clear trend was observed between K(d) and the chemical properties of the five chemicals. Phenanthrene and sulfamethoxazole (SMX) showed increased sorption with increased pyrolysis temperature, while the sorption of bisphenol A (BPA), ofloxacin (OFL) and norfloxacin (NOR) in the original sediment was comparable to those in the thermally treated samples. Electrostatic repulsion played an important role in SMX sorption as suggested by its lowest hydrophobicity-normalized sorption coefficients among the five chemicals. Possible sorption mechanisms were discussed and the sorption of SMX and PHE on the produced biochars were compared with natural adsorbents (including soils, sediments, and inorganic mineral particles).

Fluoroquinolones are broad-spectrum antibiotics that are considered as first line drugs to treat infectious diseases. In order to find out useful fluoroquinolones, the antibiotic resistance of fluoroquinolones, namely, ofloxacin (OFL), ciprofloxacin (CIP), norfloxacin (NRF), enoxacin (ENX), pefloxacin (PFL) and levofloxacin (LVF) was investigated against ninety five clinical isolates that includes Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Proteus mirabilis. In vitro activity of these isolates was carried out by agar dilution method. All Staphylococcus aureus were sensitive to OFL at 2 μg/ml. About 6% isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae were found to be resistance to LVF and ENX, 6% to CIP, OFL and PFL and none of the isolates were resistant to LVF and ENX. Percentage resistance of P. aeruginosa was found to be 4.35% to CIP, 7% to OFL and 2.2% to NRF, whereas 8.69% to ENX, 0% to PFL and 17.4% to LVF, respectively. The present study provides the data about the emergence buy noroxin of resistance to fluoroquinolones among gram positive and gram negative bacteria and strongly recommends the rational and appropriate use of these antibiotics.

During 1999-2000 a total of 4131 faecal specimens were collected and analysed at the medical centre St. Camille at Ouagadougou. Eight hundred and twenty-six (8.0%) grew significant bacteria. Escherichia coli (35%), Salmonella spp. (15%) and Shigella spp. (10%) were most frequently isolated. A large number of E. coli strains were resistant to aminopenicillins (>90%) and cotrimoxazole (80%); for Yersinia spp the resistance was 80 and 25%, respectively. Norfloxacin was the most active antibiotic but was rarely used. The study showed that it is necessary to create antibiotic-resistance surveillance centres in developing countries so that therapy may be appropriate and the spread of antibiotic resistance to other buy noroxin developed countries via increased emigration may be reduced.

Twenty seven Enterotoxigenic Bacteroides fragilis (ETBF) strains isolated from children in Kolkata, India, were tested for their antimicrobial resistance, presence of integrons and resistance encoding genes. Almost all the strains (>90%) were resistant to two or more antimicrobials. buy noroxin About 59-92% of the strains were resistant to ampicillin, amoxicillin, streptomycin, tetracycline, ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin. Most of these antimicrobial agents have been used in the treatment of diarrhea and other infectious diseases. In addition, about half a number of strains (48-55%) were resistant to clindamycin, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, ampicillin/sulbactam and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole. Moxifloxacin and metronidazole resistance ranged from 30 to 40%. All strains however, were found to be susceptible to chloramphenicol and imipenem. Class 1 integrase (intI1) was detected in seven and class 2 integrase (intI2) in one of the twenty seven ETBF strains. Resistance gene cassettes carried by these integrons had different alleles of dfr or aad genes. Beside these integron-borne genes, other genes encoding different antimicrobial resistance were also detected. Resistance genes such as cep(A) and tet(Q) were detected in most of the ETBF strains. To the best of our knowledge, this work constituted the first extensive report from India on the detection of integrons and antimicrobial resistance genes in ETBF.

Most urinary tract infections (UTIs) present as bacterial cystitis in healthy women in the sexually active age group. The commonest pathogen is Escherichia coli and most of the remainder are due to Staphylococcus saprophyticus. Many women are prone to recurrent UTIs and these are invariably due to a reinfection with a different organism. After diagnosis, a curative course of treatment should be given, but the approach should be different if the infection is uncomplicated (normal urinary tract and normal renal function) as opposed to complicated (male patient, abnormal urinary tract, impaired host defence mechanisms, impaired renal function, infection with a virulent organism). It is believed that traditional dosage regimens for uncomplicated UTIs are extravagant. There is no convincing evidence that a long course of medication is more effective than a short one; in fact, the use of single dose therapy for uncomplicated UTIs is gaining support. Trimethoprim 600mg, cotrimoxazole (trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole) 1.92g, fosfomycin trometamol 3g and the 4-quinolones are the preferred agents for single dose treatment. Failure of single dose therapy is a simple guide for the need for further urinary tract investigation or more intensive therapy. If UTIs recur, it may be necessary to consider long term, low dose prophylaxis. The most effective drugs for this type of treatment include nitrofurantoin 50mg, trimethoprim 100mg and norfloxacin 200mg, given at night. More recent studies Cipro Antibiotic Alcohol show that a dose administered on alternate nights, 3 nights a week or after intercourse is just as effective.

The presence of the aac(6')-Ib-cr gene increased the MICs of ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin 4-8-fold for all E. Nexium Regular Dose coli genotypes, independently of the initial resistance level. Combination of the aac(6')-Ib-cr gene with three or four chromosomal mechanisms was necessary to reach MIC values above the susceptible category. Killing curve assays showed a clear selective advantage for survival in strains harbouring the aac(6')-Ib-cr gene (up to 7 log10 cfu/mL after 24 h). AAC(6')-Ib-cr significantly reduced the ciprofloxacin efficacy in vivo. In terms of bacterial fitness cost, maximal OD was significantly lower for all strains harbouring the aac(6')-Ib-cr gene, independently of chromosomal mutations associated.

A simple and sensitive spectrofluorimetric method was developed for the determination of four fluoroquinolone antibacterials namely norfloxacin (NOR), ofloxacin (OFL), ciprofloxacin (CIP) and gatifloxacin (GAT) in honey through charge transfer (CT) complex formation with 2,3-Dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone (DDQ), and then the inclusion complexes of FQs-DDQ with β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) were formed, which resulted in drastic fluorescence enhancement. The effect of several parameters Augmentin Xr Generic including the concentration of reactants, reaction temperature, time and ultrasonic treatment on the efficiency of the proposed method involving CT reaction and inclusion interaction was systematically investigated. Under the optimum conditions, the limits of detection (LODs) for four FQs in honey varied from 11.6 to 15.4 μg/kg (signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) = 3). The intra- and interday relative standard deviations (RSDs) were 1.6-4.0 % (n = 5) for four FQs. The calibration graph was linear from 42.8 to 1346.8 μg/kg with correlation coefficients not less than 0.9905. The recoveries of four FQs at three different spiked concentrations in honey samples ranged from 80.9 % to 92.8 %. The results indicated that the method was successfully applied for analyzing FQs in honey.

The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) and zone diameters around NCCLS strength discs of 100 clinical isolates of thermophilic Campylobacter species, including 79 strains of Campylobacter jejuni subsp. jejuni, 19 of C. coli and two of C. lari, plus three type strains of these species, were determined for erythromycin, clindamycin, nalidixic acid, norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, ampicillin, piperacillin, Moduretic Drug Information cephalothin, ceftriaxone, chloramphenicol, gentamicin and tetracycline. Using error-rate bounded analysis and adjustment of MIC breakpoints to fit natural populations, tentative interpretive zone diameter criteria were set for each of the antimicrobials. Application of these criteria showed that resistance to quinolones was not detected in species other than C. lari. Two strains of C. jejuni subsp. jejuni were susceptible to cephalothin. The type strain of C. lari was susceptible to erythromycin and resistant to clindamycin. Full resistance to erythromycin, chloramphenicol or gentamicin was not found in any strain, while nine strains were resistant to tetracycline. This disc method should provide a simple approach to resistance detection for surveillance or routine testing of invasive isolates.

The multidrug-resistant mutant Streptococcus pneumoniae M22 constitutively overexpresses two genes (patA and patB) that encode proteins homologous to known efflux proteins belonging to the ABC transporter family. It is shown here that PatA and PatB were strongly induced by Diovan And Alcohol quinolone antibiotics and distamycin in fluoroquinolone-sensitive strains. PatA was very important for growth of S. pneumoniae, and it could not be disrupted in strain M22. PatB appeared to control metabolic activity, particularly in amino acid biosynthesis, and it may have a pivotal role in coordination of the response to quinolone antibiotics. The induction of PatA and PatB by antibiotics showed a pattern similar to that exhibited by SP1861, a homologue of ABC-type transporters of choline and other osmoprotectants. A second group of quinolone-induced transporter genes comprising SP1587 and SP0287, which are homologues of, respectively, oxalate/formate antiporters and xanthine or uracil permeases belonging to the major facilitator family, showed a different pattern of induction by other antibiotics. There was no evidence for the involvement of PmrA, the putative proton-dependent multidrug transporter that has been implicated in norfloxacin resistance, in the response to quinolone antibiotics in either the resistant mutant or the fluoroquinolone-sensitive strains.

Occurrence and fate of 17 antibiotics were investigated in the aqueous phase of river water under different hydrological conditions at 5 sampling locations in the Seine River inner estuary. The target analytes belonged to 4 groups: quinolones, sulfonamides, nitro-imidazoles and diaminopyrimidines. This six-month survey (from January to June 2006) showed that different compounds were occurring at individual concentrations reaching 544 ng L(-)(1) (sulfamethoxazole). All 17 compounds were detected at least once in the survey. Sulfamethoxazole was detected in every sample, and showed the highest concentrations. Norfloxacin and flumequine were found to be the most ubiquitous quinolones, with detection frequencies of 33 Celebrex Reviews 2013 and 75% respectively at the most contaminated site (Poses). Investigations concerning the origins of this contamination were made by means of a longitudinal profile along the Seine River between Paris and Poses. It showed large inputs of norfloxacin, ofloxacin, trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole from wastewater treatment plants, with an increase in norfloxacin and sulfamethoxazole concentrations of 84% and 70% respectively, both reaching 155 ng L(-)(1) in the river, downstream from a wastewater outlet. The detected compounds showed different dissipation patterns and behaviours under different hydrological conditions. Higher inputs of norfloxacin were found in low flow conditions, which were rapidly attenuated along the stream. In contrast, sulfamethoxazole inputs were increasing in high flow conditions, and dissipation of this compound was found to be slow. Similar behaviour was observed for the synergist trimethoprim. Flumequine was also frequently detected and its input increased during flood events.

A double-blind controlled trial of norfloxacin versus cotrimoxazole in the treatment of urinary tract infections was conducted. Eighty-eight patients were recruited but data from 80 patients were analysed. Norfloxacin cured 93 per cent of the infections while the cure rate achieved by cotrimoxazole was only 70 per cent (p = 0.03, Fisher's exact test). The difference Seroquel Missed Dose was attributable to a higher incidence of resistance to cotrimoxazole among the bacterial isolates. Escheria coli was the commonest pathogen and together with klebsiella accounted for 78 per cent of all isolates. Fifteen per cent of E coli and 15 per cent of klebsiella isolates were resistant to cotrimoxazole while all were sensitive to norfloxacin. Side effects were minimal and consisted mainly of nausea and non-specific dizziness.

Because of their wide distribution and capability of transporting a large variety of compounds, organic anion-transporting polypeptides (OATPs) have been extensively recognized as crucial players in absorption, distribution, and excretion of various drugs. OATP1A2 was the first cloned human OATP and has been found to transport wide range of endogenous and exogenous compounds. Bovine Oatp1a2 (bOatp1a2) shares high homology with human OATP1A2 and is considered the functional ortholog of the latter. Previous study in our laboratory demonstrated that bOatp1a2 transport of estrone-3-sulfate (ES) exhibited biphasic saturation kinetics. In the present study, we investigated the transport function of bOatp1a2 for four different quinolone antibacterial agents (enrofloxacin, levofloxacin, norfloxacin, and ciprofloxacin) and found that all the tested fluoroquinolones can be transported by bOatp1a2. Further studies showed that different binding sites are responsible for the transport of different fluoroquinolones. Both ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin exhibited biphasic saturation kinetics. The Kms of the high- and low-affinity components for ciprofloxacin were 3.80 ± 0.85 μM and 182 ± 31 μM, respectively, while those for norfloxacin were 24.7 ± 0.1 μM and 393 ± 79 μM, respectively. Enrofloxacin and levofloxacin showed an inhibitory effect on the uptake of only the high concentration of ES and thus may be transported by the low-affinity site for ES. Interestingly, enrofloxacin and levofloxacin demonstrated an activation effect on ES uptake at the high-affinity binding site. These results suggested that multiple binding sites within the structure of bOatp1a2 may be responsible for the uptake of different quinolone antimicrobial agents.

New details of the molecular interactions of quinolones with their target DNA gyrase and DNA have come from the nucleotide sequences of the gyrA genes from resistant mutants of Escherichia coli and wild-type strains of other bacteria and studies of gyrase A tryptic fragments, all suggesting the importance of an amino-terminal domain in quinolone action. Alterations in DNA supertwisting were also associated with altered quinolone susceptibility, possibly by indirect effects on DNA gyrase expression. Specific binding of relevant concentrations of norfloxacin to a complex of DNA gyrase and DNA in the presence of ATP, the cooperativity of DNA binding, and the crystalline structure of nalidixic acid have led to a model in which quinolones bind cooperatively to a pocket of single-strand DNA created by DNA gyrase. Quinolones vary in their relative activity against DNA gyrase and its eukaryotic homolog topoisomerase II, and in some assays increased action against the eukaryotic enzyme was associated with genotoxicity. Inhibition of bacterial DNA synthesis by quinolones may correlate with MICs in some species, but comparisons of drug accumulation and inhibition of DNA synthesis in permeabilized cells among species have been difficult to interpret. The specific factors necessary for bacterial killing by quinolones in addition to interaction with DNA gyrase have remained elusive, but include oxygen and new protein synthesis. The coordinate expression of the SOS proteins appears not to be necessary for quinolone lethality. Two independent mutants with selective reduced killing by quinolones and beta-lactams indicate overlap in the pathways of bactericidal activity of these classes of agents with distinct targets.

In an attempt to define the most important driver responsible for recurrence of cystitis in women, 181 records were retrospectively analysed among 1010 consecutive references in a tertiary centre for lower urinary tract infections (UTIs). All 181 women had more than three episodes of cystitis per year; 129 were under continuous prophylaxis and 52 were under postcoital prophylaxis. Analysis revealed that the most important factor affecting successful outcome of chemoprophylaxis was the compliance of patients (odds ratio 0.074; P<0.0001). Among women treated for >or=6 months, the most effective regimen was nitrofurantoin, with a success rate of 96.8% compared with 82.8% for trimethoprim/sulphamethoxazole and 72.3% for norfloxacin (P=0.046 between agents). Failure of chemoprophylaxis was observed in 51 women in total; in 26 of them resistance to the administered agent had developed. Results of this retrospective study revealed that the most important driver leading to failure of prophylaxis for recurrent lower UTIs was the lack of compliance of women with their medication. Nitrofurantoin was the most potent among the administered agents.

Norfloxacin (Nflx), an antibiotic which is active against some intracellular bacteria, was coupled to a polymeric carrier, namely poly(L-lysine citramide) via a lysine or an ethylcarbamate spacer to obtain a macromolecular prodrug. The carrier, which derived from the two metabolites citric acid and L-lysine, is known to be biocompatible and slowly degradable under slight acidic conditions. Conjugates were characterised by UV, 1H and 13C NMR and SEC. The presence of Norfloxacin and the lysine type spacer caused chain aggregation, due to a probable physical cure. The release of Norfloxacin from these prodrugs and from a prodrug where Norfloxacin is bound to the carrier backbone without spacer arm was investigated comparatively in vitro. Conjugation via a carbamate-type linkage appeared as a method to achieve the release of Norfloxacin from a PLCA-type conjugate at neutral.

In a prospective, randomized trial, norfloxacin (400 mg perorally, twice a day) was compared with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (160-800 mg perorally, twice a day) in 45 patients with uncomplicated urinary tract infections. Escherichia coli was the most common isolate. Infections due to Enterobacter spp., Proteus mirabilis, Pseudomonas spp., and Staphylococcus spp. were also treated. Norfloxacin was equivalent in effectiveness and safety to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, with a cure rate of 91% at the 5- to 9-day posttherapy visit and 88% at the 4- to 6-week posttherapy visit. It was well tolerated and had a low incidence of side effects.
