T-lymphocytes are crucial in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) pathogenesis. Especially T(H)1-lymphocytes are involved in local and systemic inflammation in COPD, yet the role of T(H)2-mediated immune-responses in COPD pathogenesis is poorly understood. The objective of this study was to examine IL-5 expression in T(H)2-lymphocytes in smokers with and without COPD ex vivo compared with non-smokers and to evaluate the effects of bacterial endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide, LPS) as well as two drugs often used for treatment of COPD exacerbation, corticosteroids and moxifloxacin. CD4(+) lymphocytes were isolated from the peripheral blood of non-smokers (NS; n=11), current smokers without airflow limitation (S; n=11) and smokers with COPD (n=11). Baseline IL-5 release of CD4(+) T-lymphocytes was significantly increased in COPD compared to S and NS. After T-cell activation and differentiation into T(H)2-lymphocytes, IL-5 release increased without differences between the cohorts. LPS reduced IL-5 release of ex vivo generated T(H)2-lymphocytes without differences in all cohorts. Moxifloxacin and dexamethasone significantly reduced IL-5 release in T(H)2-lymphocytes in the absence and presence of LPS without differences between groups. In summary, our data indicate that IL-5 might contribute to systemic inflammation in smokers with COPD and that T(H)2-based immune responses might be suppressed in response to gram-negative bacterial infections independent from smoking and disease status. Dexamethasone and moxifloxacin both have T(H)2-immunmodulating effects.
The purpose of this article was to describe a case of nephrotoxicity associated with moxifloxacin use.

Moxifloxacin was well tolerated throughout the study. There was no difference in the area under the plasma concentration-time curve from zero to infinity [AUCinfinity; geometric mean (SD)] of moxifloxacin [32.2 (1.24) vs 33.0 (1.26) mg/L x h, with vs without Ca2+]. Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) [2.29 (1.27) vs 2.71 (1.33) mg/L, with vs without Ca2+] slightly decreased by approximately 16% and the time to Cmax [median (range)] tended to be slightly prolonged [2.5 (0.8 to 3) vs 0.9 (0.5 to 2.5) hours, with vs without Ca2+].

Current drug regimens for brucellosis are associated with relatively high rates of therapeutic failure or relapse. Reduced antimicrobial susceptibility of Brucella spp. has been proposed recently as a potential cause of therapeutic failure. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibiotic resistance pattern of Brucella melitensis clinical isolates by E-test method in Hamadan, west of Iran. In a 15-month period, all patients with suspected brucellosis were enrolled. Blood Specimens were collected for diagnosis of brucellosis by BACTEC system and serological tests. Antimicrobial susceptibility of clinical isolates to seven antibiotics was assessed by the E-test method. One hundred forty-nine patients with brucellosis were diagnosed. Culture of clinical samples were positive in 38.3%, of which, 91.2% were associated with positive serological test. No significant associations were found between serology and culture method. All Brucella isolates were susceptible to doxycycline, streptomycin, gentamicin, ciprofloxacin and moxifloxacin. However, decreased sensitivity to rifampin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole was found in 35.08% and 3.5% of isolates, respectively. Because of the high rates of intermediate sensitivity to rifampin among Brucella isolates, this drug should be prescribed with caution. We recommend restricting the use of rifampin for treatment of brucellosis except as an alternative drug for special situations.

Standard triple therapy for Helicobacter pylori has an eradication rate of about 50% in Turkey. It may be due to an increased resistance of H. pylori to antibiotics. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the effectiveness of a new second-generation fluoroquinolone, moxifloxacin-containing triple therapy in H. pylori eradication.
MXF suppressed the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines by allergen-exposed rat ASMC, partly by inhibiting NF-κB and ERK activation. DXM may have additional or synergistic effects with MXF.

The current research focuses on developing positively charged gelatin nanoparticles loaded with moxifloxacin for its effective ocular delivery and controlled release in corneal eye layer. We selected type A gelatin because of its biodegradable and non-toxic nature as the polymer of choice for fabricating the nanoparticles by a modified two step desolvation technique. The produced nanoparticles were positively charged (+24±0.12mV) with a narrow particle size of 175±1.11nm as measured by dynamic light scattering (DLS). The in-vitro drug release from the nanoformulations exhibited a burst effect in the first hour followed by a controlled release of the drug for the subsequent 12h. The Korsmeyer-Peppas model showed better linearity and the formulations displayed non-Fickian drug release pattern. The optimized formulation was assessed for its utility as an anti-bacterial agent and its effectiveness was tested on the corneal eye surface of rabbits. The in-vivo tolerance tests revealed that the drug loaded nano-formulations was non-irritant to the ocular tissues indicating its safety. The in-vivo anti-bacterial activity of the nanosuspension was more effective against S. aureus than the commercially market product, MoxiGram®. Microbiological efficacy assessed against B. subtilus using cup-plate method suggested that our fabricated nanosuspension possess better anti-microbial activity as compared to the commercial agent, MoxiGram® revealing promising potentials for the currently developed gelatin based nanoformualtions.

Assays included the anaesthetized remodelled chronic complete AV block (CAVB) dog, the anaesthetized methoxamine-sensitized unremodelled rabbit, multi-cellular hESC-CM clusters, isolated CM obtained from CAVB dogs and isolated CM obtained from the normal rabbit. Arrhythmic outcome was defined as Torsade de Pointes (TdP) in the animal models and early afterdepolarizations (EADs) in the cell models.
All treatments were well tolerated. No clinically relevant changes in the standard laboratory tests, vital signs or ECG were observed. Minimum plasma concentrations required to inhibit 90% of susceptible micro-organisms (e.g. 0.125 mg/L for Streptococcus pneumoniae) were attained rapidly and exceeded until the end of treatment. Repeated doses of 100 and 200mg twice daily and 400mg once daily resulted in stable trough and peak concentrations within 3 days of the first dose. The concentrations at steady state were moderately higher (approximately 30% for 400mg once daily) than after the first dose. Steady-state peak concentrations were between 0.9 mg/L (100mg twice daily) and 5.7 mg/L (600mg once daily). The terminal elimination half-life was 14 to 15 hours, supporting once daily administration of the drug. Accumulation ratios ranged between 87% for the lowest dosage and 111% after repeated doses of 600mg once daily, indicating the absence of clinically relevant accumulation due to non-linear pharmacokinetics. Across the studies, the average exposure after single and repeated doses was proportional to the dose administered.
In patients who develop reactions to fluoroquinolones, hypersensitivity is more often confirmed in those with immediate reactions and when moxifloxacin is involved. Moreover, patients with hypersensitivity to betalactams are more prone to develop hypersensitivity reactions to fluoroquinolones.
Moxifloxacin, a fluoroquinolone with potent activity against respiratory pathogens, is approved and considered as an alternative to beta-lactams and macrolides for the treatment of acute bacterial sinusitis and lower respiratory tract infections. In this review, we critically examine its safety profile in comparison with other fluoroquinolones and other antibacterial classes sharing similar indications. Data were extracted from published clinical trials, meta-analyses, postmarketing studies, spontaneous report systems and case reports for rare effects. Global analysis did not reveal significantly higher incidences of drug-related adverse effects than for comparators. Tendon rupture was infrequent with moxifloxacin, including when used in elderly patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Severe toxic cutaneous reactions and allergies were very rare. Phototoxicity and CNS adverse effects were less common than with other fluoroquinolones. Although causing a 4-7 msec corrected QT interval prolongation, severe cardiac toxicity was neither seen in large cohorts or clinical trials nor reported to pharmacovigilance systems. Hepatotoxicity was not different from what was observed for other fluoroquinolones (excluding trovafloxacin) and less frequent than reported for amoxicillin-clavulanic acid or telithromycin. The data show that using moxifloxacin, in its accepted indications and following the corresponding guidelines, should not be associated with an excessive incidence of drug-related adverse reactions, provided the clinician takes care in identifying patients with known risk factors and pays due attention to the contraindications and warnings mentioned in the labelling.
