Cranberry juice consumption is often recommended along with low-dose oral antibiotics for prophylaxis for recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI). Because multiple membrane transporters are involved in the intestinal absorption and renal excretion of beta-lactam antibiotics, we evaluated the potential risk of pharmacokinetic interactions between cranberry juice and the beta-lactams amoxicillin (amoxicilline) and cefaclor. The amoxicillin-cranberry juice interaction was investigated in 18 healthy women who received on four separate occasions a single oral test dose of amoxicillin at 500 mg and 2 g with or without cranberry juice cocktail (8 oz) according to a crossover design. A parallel cefaclor-cranberry juice interaction study was also conducted in which 500 mg cefaclor was administered with or without cranberry juice cocktail (12 oz). Data were analyzed by noncompartmental methods and nonlinear mixed-effects compartmental modeling. We conclude that the concurrent use of cranberry juice has no significant effect on the extent of oral absorption or the renal clearance of amoxicillin and cefaclor. However, delays in the absorption of amoxicillin and cefaclor were observed. These results suggest that the use of cranberry juice at usual quantities as prophylaxis for UTI is not likely to alter the pharmacokinetics of these two oral antibiotics.

Gemella morbillorum is an anaerobic to aerotolerant Gram positive coccus. It is considered a member of the normal upper respiratory tract flora including the oropharynx and also the gastro-intestinal and female genital tract. However severe infections are reported like endocarditis, septic shock and septic arthritis, more often in immunocompromised hosts. It is an infrequently isolated organism and a rare cause of pulmonary or pleural infections.

Probiotic supplementation can reduce the antibiotic-induced alteration and imbalance of the gut microbiota composition. This effect may restrict the growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the gut and improve the H. pylori eradication success rate.
Tuberculous otitis media (TOM) is a rare cause of chronic suppurative infection of the middle ear. Due to that the symptoms and signs are often indistinguishable from those of nontuberculosis chronic otitis media and the fact that the index of suspicion is low, there is frequently a considerable delay prior to diagnosis. This can lead to irreversible complications such as facial nerve paralysis and labyrinthitis. Medical therapy with antituberculous drugs is usually effective. We report three cases with TOM diagnosticated and followed up in our Service from january 1993 to july 2001. Their charts were retrospectively reviewed for relevant historical data, physical findings, complementary studies, treatment and clinical response. We performed a review of the literature, emphasizing that TOM should be considered in the differential diagnosis of chronic otitis media.

Very little is known about the occurrence and various types of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL), AmpC and carbapenemase in Iran. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of ESBLs, AmpCs and carbapenemase genes among Enterobacteriaceae in Azerbaijan and to characterize the genetic composition of the detected genes. A total of 307 Enterobacteriaceae isolates, recovered from five medical centres, were screened for ESBL, AmpC and carbapenemase activities by the disc diffusion method and phenotypic confirmatory tests. The 162 selected strains (third-generation cephalosporins, cefoxitin- or carbapenem-resistant strains with positive or negative phenotypic confirmatory tests) were selected for multiplex PCR screening for β-lactamase genes, and detected genes were confirmed by sequencing. Of 162 isolates, 156 harboured 1 to 6 β-lactamase genes of 41 types. The most prevalent genes were blaTEM-1 (29.9 %), followed by blaCTX-M-15 (25.7 %). Plasmid-mediated AmpC was detected in 66 strains (21.5 %) alone or in combination with other genes. Carbapenemase-encoding genes were detected in 18 strains (5.8 %) of 27 carbapenem-non-susceptible isolates including 11, 7, 3 and 1 cases of blaOXA-48, blaNDM-1, blaKPC-2 and blaKPC-3 genes, respectively. Interestingly, 148 (94.8 %) of 156 strains with any β-lactamase gene were found to have a multidrug-resistant pattern. The rate of resistance to β-lactams and multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae is high in Azerbaijan. All positive strains for carbapenemase genes were resistant to all β-lactams. The present study reveals the high occurrence of CTX-M-type ESBLs followed by TEM and SHV variants among Enterobacteriaceae isolates. East Azerbaijan seems to be an alarming focus for OXA-48, NDM-1 and KPC dissemination.

Helicobacter pylori eradication remains a challenge for physicians. Sequential, concomitant and the hybrid regimens have been proposed as novel, more effective therapies. We compare the efficacy of these therapies. Dyspeptic patients referred for upper endoscopy with H. pylori infection were enrolled. Patients were randomized to receive: (a) sequential therapy - 20 mg omeprazole and 1 g amoxicillin for 5 days, followed by 20 mg omeprazole, 500 mg clarithromycin and 500 mg tinidazole for the successive 5 days; (b) concomitant therapy - 20 mg omeprazole, 1 g amoxicillin, 500 mg clarithromycin and 500 mg tinidazole for either 5 days (5 day concomitant) or 14 days (14 day concomitant); or (c) hybrid therapy - 20 mg omeprazole and 1 g amoxicillin for 7 days, followed by 20 mg omeprazole, 1 g amoxicillin, 500 mg clarithromycin and 500 mg tinidazole for the successive 7 days. All drugs were given twice daily. Bacterial eradication was checked by using a [(13)C]urea breath test. In 'intention-to-treat' analysis, sequential therapy achieved the highest eradication rate, which was higher than that of 5 day concomitant therapy (90 vs 78.1 %; P = 0.02). The success rate did not statistically differ among the sequential and either 14 day concomitant (90 vs 86.3 %; P = not significant) or hybrid therapies (90 vs 82.7 %; P = not significant). The 10 day sequential, 14 day concomitant and 14 day hybrid therapies, but not the 5 day concomitant regimen, achieved similarly high eradication rates. The lower therapeutic cost coupled with the lower number of tablets needed would favour the sequential therapy as the first-line H. pylori treatment in clinical practice.
The efficacy of the current standard triple therapy for H. pylori eradication in our community is suboptimal. Confirmation for H. pylori eradication with noninvasive tests is recommended, especially in high-risk patients. New antimicrobial regimens for H. pylori eradication are considered necessary.

Actinomycosis is a rare chronic granulomatous disease that involves the upper airway and gastrointestinal tract. Approximately 40-55% of actinomycosis comprises the cervicofacial form. It presents a challenging clinical diagnostic dilemma because of variable presentations in the head and neck. Herein, we report a rare case of actinomycosis presenting as a vocal cord nodule in a healthy 21-year-old man who was not immunocompromised and had no other known medical disease.

A total of 420 women were included. Group 1 had 233 (55.5%) patients and group 2 had 187 (44.5%). Escherichia coli was the most common agent in both groups (76.4% and 74.3%, respectively; P = .625), whereas Staphylococcus saprophyticus (8.2%) was the second most common in group 1, and Enterococcus faecalis was the second most common in group 2 (8.0%). Nitrofurantoin was the only oral agent that maintained the susceptibility profile in both groups (87.1% and 88.7%, respectively; P = .883). For E coli infections, only nitrofurantoin and amoxicillin/clavulanate maintained susceptibility rates more than 90% in both groups.
Overuse of antibiotics for children is widespread and contributes to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Moreover, non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are often overprescribed despite of their renal and gastrointestinal side-effects.

The ability of biofilm formation was found to be significantly higher in ESBL producing strains of E. coli than that in ESBL non producing strains (p < 0.05). There was higher resistance rate to antimicrobial agents among biofilm producing strains of E. coli than that in biofilm non producing strains. According to our antimicrobial susceptibility pattern for E. coli, to start preliminary treatment for UTI in Nepal, we recommend to use amikacin or nitrofurantoin. Further, for the treatment of the UTI, the antibiotics should be selected on the basis of the urine culture and sensitivity report.

There is a vicious circle in patients with type 2 diabetes: the infectious process leads to decompensation of carbohydrate metabolism parameters; in turn, hyperglycemia leads to increase of severity of SSTIs. Normalization of glucose levels promotes prompt relief of symptoms of infection and bacterial eradication, rational treatment of infection contributes to rapid correction of glucose level. Therefore, an essential element of comprehensive treatment of this group of patients should be rational antibiotic therapy; the choice of medication should be based on the severity of the disease and potential etiologic agents . The analysis of the degree of conformity of the pharmacotherapy to existing standards is a way to optimize the treatment of the given group of patients .
A total of 100 S. aureus strains isolated from the following materials were studied: 25 blood cultures, 21 secretions, 12 catheters, 3 cannulae and one chest drain from 62 patients in the neonatal unit, and 36 blood cultures, one pleural fluid sample and one peritoneal fluid sample from 38 patients in the pediatric unit. Resistance of the S. aureus isolates to oxacillin was evaluated by the disk diffusion method with oxacillin (1 μg) and cefoxitin (30 μg), agar screening test using Mueller-Hinton agar supplemented with 6 μg/ml oxacillin and 4% NaCl, and detection of the mecA gene by PCR. In addition, the isolates were tested for β-lactamase production using disks impregnated with Nitrocefin and hyperproduction of β-lactamase using amoxicillin (20 μg) and clavulanic acid (10 μg) disks.

In Japan, eradication regimens consisting of a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) + amoxicillin (AMPC) + clarithromycin (CAM) (PPI/AC) for 1 week have been conducted. In the present study, we assessed the eradication rates following treatment with low doses of various PPIs.
Neither the morning dose and the divided dose regimen of lansoprazole affected the intragastric acidity and occurrence of the NAB. NAB did not influence H. pylori eradication in peptic ulcer patients, but the duration of NAB and total intragastric median pH were found to influence the H. pylori eradication.
