The age-adjusted ratio of women who were dispensed fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin or norfloxacin) among all 236,376 women dispensed any of the following antibiotics used in the treatment of lower urinary tract infection were studied: ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, pivmecillinam, trimethoprim and nitrofurantoin. Only the first prescription during July 2006 to June 2007 was studied. Prescription data were linked to information on geographical area, marital status, country of birth and educational attainment, which allowed multivariate analysis of the importance of these factors.

In order to clarify the in vivo effect of the new quinolones in the urinary tract, we investigated the antimicrobial activities against Escherichia coli in the human urine. Human urine was prepared from a normal volunteer. After cations were removed by chelating resin, human urine was supplemented with 50, 100, or 500 micrograms of Mg2+ per ml using MgCl2 or 10, 50, or 150 micrograms of Ca2+ per ml using CaCl2. The pH of human urine was adjusted to 5.5, 7.0, or 8.0 with HCl or NaOH. Four clinical isolates of E. coli and E. coli NIHJ JC-2 were used. And antimicrobial activities of the new quinolones (norfloxacin, enoxacin, ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin) against these strains were measured using various urines as mediums. Antimicrobial activities of the new quinolones were reduced in the presence of high concentration of magnesium or low pH of urine. However, there was no influence of calcium concentration of urine on antimicrobial activities of the new quinolones. From these results, the component of the urine should be checked in the treatment of the patients with urinary tract infection.

The in vitro activities of five quinolinecarboxylic acids against two laboratory strains of Chlamydia trachomatis were compared. The minimal inhibitory concentrations of nalidixic acid, cinoxacin, and pipemidic acid were all greater than or equal to 50 micrograms/ml; the activity of norfloxacin was intermediate (minimal inhibitory concentration, 8 to 16 micrograms/ml). Ciprofloxacin was the most active of these drugs (minimal inhibitory concentration, 0.5 to 1 microgram/ml).

An inexpensive and portable surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor, SPReeta Evaluation Kit SPR3, has been used to develop a biosensor for the determination of fluoroquinolone antibiotics (FQs) and to demonstrate its performance analyzing FQ residues in milk samples. The SPReeta three-channel gold chips were activated with a mixed self-assembled monolayer (m-SAM) and functionalized with a FQ haptenized protein. Binding of the antibody produced a concentration-dependent increase of the SPR signal as a result of the change in the refraction index. Similarly, the presence of the FQ produced a dose-dependent decrease of the response, which allowed a good limit of detection (LOD) to be obtained (1.0 ± 0.4 μg L(-1) for enrofloxacin in buffer). The response was reproducible in all three channels, on different injections and days, and also between chips. Milk samples could be analyzed after a simple sample treatment involving fat removal by centrifugation and dilution with water. Under these conditions calibration curves were obtained showing that FQ residues can be analyzed in milk samples with an IC(50) value of 26.4 ± 7.2 μg L(-1) and a LOD of 2.0 ± 0.2 μg L(-1) (for enrofloxacin), far below the European Union regulations for this antibiotic family in this matrix. Finally, the paper also demonstrates that the biosensor is able to selectively detect the presence of FQs in milk samples, even in the presence of other antibiotics. Enrofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and norfloxacin residues were detected in blind samples supplied by Nestlé Co.

The activity of Ro 15-8074/001 was compared with that of cefaclor, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, norfloxacin, and ceftriaxone against 225 clinical isolates. It was more active than cefaclor, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole against members of the family Enterobacteriaceae and Haemophilus influenzae and had activity similar to that of cefaclor against nonenterococcal streptococci. It was not usefully active against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus faecalis, or most isolates of staphylococci.

A randomized treatment trial of travelers' diarrhea was carried out among U.S. military personnel participating in routine exercises in several port cities in South America and West Africa. A 5-day, twice daily course of either norfloxacin (400 mg) or trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX, 160/800 mg) was given to 142 volunteers. At the end of 5 days of treatment, diarrhea had resolved in 100% of 73 patients receiving norfloxacin and 97.1% (67/69) receiving TMP/SMX. A probable bacterial pathogen was determined in 44% of 142 subjects: 49% of the norfloxacin group and 39% of the TMP/SMX group. The most common pathogens detected were enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli in 20% of cases and rotavirus in 15%. Resistance to TMP/SMX was present in 20 (27%) bacterial isolates, while no resistance to norfloxacin was found. Eight of 10 patients in the TMP/SMX treatment group who had TMP/SMX-resistant bacterial enteropathogens improved clinically. Both norfloxacin and TMP/SMX were clinically effective in the treatment of travelers' diarrhea in this military population.

One hundred and sixty-six shigellae strains, isolated from stool samples of paediatric patients (< 5 years old) at a Childrens' Hospital in Kolkata, India during the period of 1995-2000 were examined for serotyping, drug resistance pattern and plasmid profiles. Sh. flexneri (58 %) was found to be commonest isolate of total shigellae, followed by Sh. sonnei (28 %), Sh. boydii (9%) and Sh. dysenteriae (5%). This profile of species was in sharp contrast to the picture obtained before 1995, when Sh. dysenteriae 1 predominated over Sh. flexneri. In Sh. flexneri strains, Sh. flexneri 2a (35%) was the most prevalent serotype, following Sh. flexneri 3a (31%), Sh. flexneri 6 (14%), Sh. flexneri 2b (11%) and Sh. flexneri 4 (9%). Resistance patterns of the strains to 12 commonly used antimicrobial agents and minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of the antibiotics were also tested. All strains were found uniformly susceptible to norfloxacin, but more than 90% strains were resistant to tetracycline, co-trimoxazole and 67% strains were resistant to ampicillin. Resistance to amoxicillin, chloramphenicol and nalidixic acid was found in 55% (range 45-74%), 46% (range 40-60%) and 29% (range 15-40%) strains respectively. Overall, shigellae strains showed statistically significant increase in resistance against tetracycline, nalidixic acid and furazolidone (P < 0.05) over the years of this study. This indicates decreased efficacy of furazolidone, cotrimoxazole and nalidixic acid for the empirical treatment of shigellosis in Kolkata. Although a few strains showed intermediate susceptibility to ciprofloxacin (4%) and cefotaxime (10%) by disk diffusion test, but the MICs of those antibiotics were within the normal limits. Almost 57% of the strains were resistant to four or more drugs with high MICs of the antibiotics. Plasmid profile analysis revealed presence of large plasmid of 220 kb in majority of the strains except in Sh. sonnei and a correlation between presence of smaller plasmids and shigellae serotypes. Hence this study reports epidemiological change of shigellae species in Kolkata, India with regard to serotypes and antibiotic resistance patterns.

The authors studied the epidemiology of external ocular infections and the therapeutic efficacy of topical ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin in the treatment of conjunctivitis and blepharitis. Signs and symptoms in two study-group (ciprofloxacin group A = 95 patients and norfloxacin group B = 95 patients) as well as the microbiological data obtained from the conjunctival swab before and after treatment were considered. The clinical and bacteriological success rate in the two study-groups was respectively 91% (group A) and 83% (group B). The results of the present study confirm the therapeutic efficacy of topical fluoroquinolones in the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis and blepharitis.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains isolated from patients with different types of the infections each consisted of LPSs different in chain sizes. The drug-susceptibility patterns of these strains of P. aeruginosa were investigated to clarify the relationship between the LPS-compositions and susceptibility to some kinds of anti-pseudomonal drugs. The susceptibilities of nineteen strains (seven long-LPS strains, four short-LPS strains and eight LPS-deficient strains) to piperacillin, ceftazidime, gentamicin, norfloxacin and polymyxin-B were determined and these strains were classified into six types (Types I-VI) according to their drug-resistance patterns. Six of the eight LPS-deficient strains were found to be highly resistant to gentamicin alone (Type IV). Four of the seven strains with the long-LPS and one strain with the short-LPS were resistant to three drugs such as piperacillin, ceftazidime and norfloxacin, and classified into Type I. These results indicated that the major part of the LPS-deficient strains and the considerable part of the long-chain LPS strains of P. aeruginosa tested had each characteristic profile in the drug resistance. The outer membrane proteins of thirteen strains, consisting of different types of LPS compositions, were analyzed by SDS-PAGE. The strains belonging to the same types of the drug-resistance patterns were found to have similar OMP-profiles, although a few exceptions were found. beta-lactamase and gentamicin-inactivating activities were determined for piperacillin-resistant and gentamicin-resistant strains, respectively. Of the piperacillin-resistant strains tested, the activity of beta-lactamase was high in one (No. 8) only, low in four and not found in four. The results showed that degrees of resistance of P. aeruginosa strains tested to piperacillin did not correlate to their producibility of beta-lactamase except one strain. Of the nine gentamicin-resistant strains tested, the gentamicin inactivating activity was high in one (No. 30) only, moderate in six and low in two. These results suggested that the significant levels of piperacillin- or gentamicin-resistance of P. aeruginosa isolated tested might be expressed each due to their decreased abilities for drug-permeabilities in addition to drug-inactivating activities such as beta-lactamase or gentamicin-modifying enzyme. In the case of some resistant strains, the resistance to piperacillin or gentamicin was not explained by the results of the present study. Therefore, we must investigate the possibility that other mechanisms participate in the resistance of these strains.

Cirrhotic patients frequently develop ascites during the course of their disease. The appearance of ascites is the final consequence of profound disturbances in systemic and splanchnic haemodynamics, and in renal and hormonal function. The alterations in renal function consist of a decreased ability to excrete sodium and water, and in more severe cases, a reduction in renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate. No effective drug therapy is yet available for water retention and renal failure in these patients. Sodium retention, however, may be treated by the administration of diuretics. The diuretics most commonly used in the treatment of cirrhotic patients with ascites are loop diuretics, particularly furosemide (frusemide), and distal, or 'potassium-sparing' diuretics such as spironolactone. Although furosemide has a much greater natriuretic potency than spironolactone in healthy individuals, studies in cirrhotic patients with ascites have shown that spironolactone is more effective than furosemide in the elimination of ascites. Nowadays, however, therapeutic paracentesis associated with plasma expanders has replaced diuretic therapy as the initial treatment for cirrhotic patients hospitalised with tense ascites since it is more effective and is associated with a lower rate of complications than diuretic therapy. Diuretics should be given after the elimination of ascites by paracentesis to avoid the reaccumulation of the abdominal fluid. Only cirrhotic patients with mild ascites should be treated initially with diuretics. Cirrhotic patients with ascites frequently develop a spontaneous infection of the ascitic fluid which is usually caused by Gram-negative bacilli from enteric origin and has a great tendency to recur after therapy. The antibiotics of choice for this infection are third-generation cephalosporins. Long term administration of norfloxacin, which causes a selective elimination of Gram-negative bacilli from the intestinal flora, is effective in preventing the recurrence of ascites infection in these patients. Finally, cirrhotic patients with ascites are prone to develop renal failure when treated with a variety of pharmacological agents, particularly aminoglycosides and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The administration of the latter drugs may also cause dilutional hyponatraemia and refractory ascites since they induce water retention and impair the renal response to diuretics.

Two hundred and forty-four cirrhotic patients and 240 controls were studied. Bacteriuria was present in 38 patients (15.6%; IC 5%: 11%-20%) and 18 controls (7.5%; IC 5%: 4.2%-11%; p<0.001). By univariate analysis, female sex and ongoing diuretic treatment were associated with bacteriuria (p<0.0001 and p<0.04, respectively). Pugh's grade, ascites and bladder residual volume were not associated with bacteriuria. By multivariate analysis, female sex (p<0.0001) and Child-Pugh score (p<0.03) were predictors of bacteriuria. Sensitivity of bacteria to norfloxacin was observed in 94.7%; sterile urine cultures were noted in 95.2% of patients treated with this antibiotic.

A number of new quinolone antibacterial agents such as ofloxacin, norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin and sparfloxacin have been developed and introduced to the market. They possess a broad spectrum of activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Ciprofloxacin has the highest activity against Gram-positive is higher than other quinolones. The activity of these quinolones against Gram-negative bacteria is generally higher than against Gram-positive bacteria. The substitution group of quinolones at C-7 position is responsible to show similar antibacterial activity with broad spectrum and similar pharmacokinetic properties, and variety of the substituents have been synthesized in many laboratories. Most of the substituents are piperazinyl of six-membered ring or pyrrolidinyl of five-membered ring, being modified with an alkyl group or another group. The development of potent quinolones against bacteria involved in pneumonia was seemed to be useful, and we investigated structure-activity relationships of new quinolones with a stronger activity against Gram-positive bacteria. A quinolone derivative with a seven-membered ring, perhydrodiazepinone, at the C-7 position was found to be a candidate for further evaluation. No previous attempts have been made to synthesize this type of derivatives. The compound FA103, 5-amino-1-cyclopropyl-6,8-difluoro-7-(2,3,4,5,6,7-hexahydro-1 H-1,4-diazepin-5-on-1-yl)-1,4-dihydro-4-oxoquinoline-3-carboxylic acid, was synthesized and evaluated. Chemical structure of FA103 is shown in Fig. 1. This is a new difluoroquinolone with a broad antibacterial spectrum and improved activity against Gram-positive bacteria. In this paper, we compare the in vitro activity of FA103 with that of ofloxacin, norfloxacin, sparfloxacin against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

The second-generation quinolone ofloxacin interferes with the screening test of porphyrins. We observed a 20-fold increase in the porphyrin concentration measured in urine of an ofloxacin-treated patient, compared with drug-free normal urine. Two other fluorinated 4-quinolones tested, norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin, had a less marked effect (a twofold increase), whereas the first-generation quinolone, nalidixic acid, did not affect the measured porphyrin concentration at all. The interference is probably due to the overlap in the emission fluorescence spectra of ofloxacin and urinary porphyrins at approximately 600 nm. To avoid a false-positive diagnosis of porphyria, we suggest using HPLC to separate ofloxacin (10-min retention time) from urinary porphyrins (which only start to elute at 12 min). Nonetheless, given a threefold increase in urinary porphyrins observed in the urine of an ofloxacin-treated patient, we also discuss a possible interference of the drug with the metabolism of porphyrins.

Nelson's agarose technique for the in vitro measurement of leukocyte chemotaxis proved to be well suited in the context of pharmaco-toxicological testings, despite several discrepancies in the literature, probably due to varied incubation conditions. Thus, doxycycline (25 micrograms/ml) when added to both the leukocyte suspension and the agarose was shown to exert a significantly more pronounced depressant effect. Using these conditions of improved sensitivity, three fluoroquinolones, i.e. norfloxacin, ofloxacin and pefloxacin (2, 10 or 25 micrograms/ml) failed to depress chemotaxis markedly.

From January 1992 to December 1995, kept records of antibiograms of all urinary pathogens isolated were examined. Samples were derived from hospital sources (wards and out-patient clinics) and general practice sources (health centers and general practitioners). Quantitative bacteriologic cultures were performed according to standard laboratory procedures, and identification of isolates were based on Gram reaction, morphology and biochemical characteristics. Significant bacteriuria was defined as the presence of greater than 100,000 organisms per mL of a midstream urine specimen or more than 3000 bacteria per mL in a catheter specimen of a single specie. Antimicrobial sensitivities were done using the following antibiotics: norfloxacin, ampicillin, tetracycline, nitrofurantoin, gentamicin, co-trimoxazole (sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim), trimethoprim, nalidixic acid, cephalexin and augmentin (amoxicillin-clavulanic acid). Control organism was E coli NCTC 10,418 strain.

The photochemical reactivity of four fluoroquinolone antibiotics is examined. For norfloxacin (NOR), enoxacin (ENX) and lomefloxacin (LOM), the only process occurring is defluorination (from position 6 for the first two drugs, from position 8 for the last one). The quantum efficiency is both structure and medium dependent (phi close to 0.5 both in water and in 0.1 M phosphate buffer for LOM; 0.01 for ENX and 0.004 for NOR in buffer, but more than an order of magnitude higher in neat water). Ofloxacin (OFL) is less light sensitive (phi 0.001) and undergoes, in part, reactions different from defluorination. The photoreaction involves heterolytic C-F bond fragmentation and its efficiency is determined by the internal charge-transfer character of the excited state (increasing in the series OFL < NOR < ENX < LOM according to the electronegativity of the substituent in position 8) and by the stabilization of the resulting aryl cation (larger for the 8-cation than for the 6-cation). The relevance of these data for the rationalization of the known phototoxicity of these drugs is discussed.

For preparing fluorinated quinolone antibiotic medicine locally used in stomatology, simultaneous determination of norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and enoxacin was carried out by multiphase ion chromatography with fluorescence detection. Quinolone antibiotics were separated by Dionex OmniPac PAX-500 column with an eluent of 15 mmol/L H(2)SO(4) and 35% methanol (v/v) at a flow-rate of 1.0 ml/min and detected with fluorescence with excitation and emission wave lengths of 347 nm and 420 nm respectively. The detection limits (S/N=3) of norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin and enoxacin were 50, 105 and 80 ng/ml respectively. The relative standard deviations of retention time, peak area and peak height were less than 1.1% and good linear relationship resulted. The developed method was applied to pharmaceutical formulations and biological fluids.

Two hospitalized patients (a 4 and 6 year old male and female, respectively) with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL), had each at different periods sustained burns with necrosis from extravasation of chemotherapeutic products. Pure cultures from their wound exudates and blood repeatedly revealed Corynebacterium jeikeium, an organism recognized and identified in the last decade as an opportunistic cause of life-threatening nosocomial infections particularly in patients on long-term multiple antimicrobial therapy, and in those who are neutropenic or have cardiac valve replacement. The organism has been found to be highly resistant to many antibiotics but sensitive to a few, including vancomycin. Both patients were successfully treated with vancomycin and are reviewed here to emphasize the importance of this group of microorganisms resistant to multiple antibiotic therapy as possible frequent cause of subacute bacterial infection in immunodepressed conditions such as ALL, especially when external wounds are inflicted by extravasation of antileukaemic agents (notably, vinca alkaloids). A review of the literature indicates that these are the first reported cases of infection caused by these organisms in Trinidad, and it is of clinical and therapeutic interest to note that they are sensitive to norfloxacin, polymyxin, tetracycline, and particularly vancomycin in this study.

noroxin 400mg tablet 2016-03-27

The electrochemical degradation of the fluoroquinolone antibiotic norfloxacin (NOR) on Ti/IrO2 anodes, in several aqueous matrices was evaluated. For this purpose, initially the performance and degradation routes of the technology at several pH values (3.0, 6.5, 7.5 and 9.0) and in the presence of some of the most common anions in real water matrices (Cl(-), HCO3(-), SO4(2-) and NO3(-)) were determined. The results showed that the degradation of NOR can occur through both direct elimination at the electrode surface and mediated oxidation, via the electrogeneration of oxidative agents, such as active chlorine species and percarbonate ions, which come from chloride and bicarbonate oxidation, respectively. Conversely, nitrate ions showed to inhibit the efficiency of the system. Concerning the pH, the efficiency of the process in the presence of chloride ions followed the order: 9.0>7.5>6.5>3.0; showing a strong dependence of the NOR speciation, and being the anionic form of the antibiotic the more susceptible to be oxidized. Furthermore, the identification of three primary NOR by-products demonstrated that the initial attack of the active chlorine species, mainly HOCl, occurred at the secondary amine of the piperazine ring followed by chlorination of the benzene ring. The precedent findings were crucial to understand the efficiency of the technology to eliminate NOR in synthetic complex matrices such as seawater, municipal wastewater and urine. The electrochemical oxidation showed to be promissory to eliminate NOR, and its associated antimicrobial activity, in such complexes matrices. Waters at basic pH containing chloride or bicarbonate ions, such as seawater or municipal wastewater showed to be the most adapted to the application of the technology. Additionally, nitrate ions or urea, found in some matrices like fresh urine, reduce the efficiency of buy noroxin the process.

10 healthy volunteers received 200 mg norfloxacin orally every 12 h for 7 days. Saliva, throat and faecal specimens were collected days 0, 3, 5, 7, 14 and 21 to study the effect of norfloxacin on the normal microflora. The concentrations of norfloxacin in serum, urine, saliva and faeces were determined by a microbiological method and all samples except faeces were also assayed by high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). The pharmacokinetics of norfloxacin were studied on day 3. The mean peak serum concentration (+/- SD) attained after 0.75-1.0 h was 0.75 +/- 0.15 mg/l measured by HPLC, and the mean terminal serum half-life was 4.2 +/- 0.6 h. The mean cumulative urinary elimination was 29% during 12 h after dosing. There was no significant difference between values obtained by buy noroxin microbiological assay and by HPLC. The saliva concentration was approximately 30% of the serum levels 1.0-1.5 h after administration. No accumulation in faeces was found during the administration period, and mean concentrations were 940 mg/kg. The changes in the oropharyngeal flora were minor and only branhamella were affected. In the colonic flora, the number of enterobacteria was strongly depressed while the anaerobic microflora was only slightly affected.

During surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in Shigella strains isolated in the Netherlands from 1984 to 1989 and forwarded to the National buy noroxin Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection for typing, sensitivity to twelve antimicrobial agents was assessed. High rates of resistance to the older drugs of choice in treating shigellosis were found, i.e. ampicillin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. Ampicillin resistance varied from 33 to 53% among Shigella flexneri strains and from 10 to 17% among Shigella sonnei strains. Trimethoprim and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole resistance increased from 8% to about 25% among Shigella flexneri and from 16 to 46% among Shigella sonnei isolates. All strains were susceptible to the newer quinolones, but five strains resistant to nalidixic acid showed decreased susceptibility to norfloxacin. Approximately 10% of the isolates were resistant to the combination of ampicillin, trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole.

We investigated the antimicrobial susceptibility of 50 environmental isolates of Vibrio cholerae non-O1/non-O139 collected in surface waters in Haiti in July 2012, during an active cholera outbreak. A panel of 16 antibiotics was tested on the isolates using the disk diffusion method and PCR detection of seven resistance-associated genes (strA/B, sul1/2, ermA/B, and mefA). All isolates were susceptible to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, cefotaxime, imipenem, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, amikacin, and gentamicin. Nearly a quarter (22.0%) of the isolates were susceptible to all 16 antimicrobials tested and only 8.0% of the isolates (n = 4) were multidrug-resistant. The highest proportions of resistant isolates were observed for sulfonamide (70.0%), amoxicillin (12.0%), and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (10.0%). One strain was resistant to erythromycin and one to doxycycline, buy noroxin two antibiotics used to treat cholera in Haiti. Among the 50 isolates, 78% possessed at least two resistance-associated genes, and the genes sul1, ermA, and strB were detected in all four multidrug-resistant isolates. Our results clearly indicate that the autochthonous population of V. cholerae non-O1/non-O139 found in surface waters in Haiti shows antimicrobial patterns different from that of the outbreak strain. The presence in the Haitian aquatic environment of V. cholerae non-O1/non-O139 with reduced susceptibility or resistance to antibiotics used in human medicine may constitute a mild public health threat.

The investigation of the new structures of Ag(I), Cu(II) and Au(III) complexes, [Ag(2)(Nor)(2)](NO(3))(2), [Cu(Nor)(2)(H(2)O)(2)] buy noroxin SO(4).5H(2)O and [Au(Nor)(2) (H(2)O)(2)]Cl(3) (where, Nor=norfloxacin) was done during the reaction of silver(I), copper(II) and gold(III) ions with norfloxacin drug ligand. Elemental analysis of CHN, infrared, electronic, (1)H NMR and mass spectra, as well as thermo gravimetric analysis (TG and DTG) and conductivity measurements have been used to characterize the isolated complexes. The powder XRD studies confirm the amorphous nature of the complexes. The norfloxacin ligand is coordinated to Ag(I) and Au(III) ions as a neutral monodentate chelating through the N atom of piperidyl ring, but the copper(II) complex is coordinated through the carbonyl oxygen atom (quinolone group) and the oxygen atom of the carboxylic group. The norfloxacin and their metal complexes have been biologically tested, which resulted in norfloxacin complexes showing moderate activity against the gram positive and gram negative bacteria as well as against fungi.

Plants or natural resources have been found to be a good alternative method for nanoparticles synthesis. In this study, polyaniline coated silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) synthesized from Piper betle leaves extract were investigated for their antibacterial activity. Silver nanoparticles were prepared from the reduction of silver nitrate and NaBH4 was used as reducing agent. Silver nanoparticles and extracts were mixed thoroughly and then coated by polyaniline. Prepared nanoparticles were characterized by Visual inspection, Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV), Fourier transform infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) techniques. Antibacterial activities of the synthesized silver nanoparticles were tested against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923, Salmonella typhi ATCC 14028, Escherichia coli ATCC 25922 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853. UV-Vis spectrum of reaction mixture showed strong absorption peak with centering at 400 nm. The FT-IR results imply that Ag-NPs were successfully synthesized and capped with bio-compounds present in P. betle. TEM image showed that Ag-NPs formed were well dispersed with a spherical structures and particle size ranging from 10 to 30 nm. The result revealed that Ag-Extract NPs showed 32.78±0.64 mm zone of inhibition against S. aureus, whereas norfloxacin (positive control) showed maximum 32.15±0.40 mm zone of inhibition for S. aureus. Again, maximum zone of inhibition 29.55±0.45 mm was found Pamelor 30 Mg for S. typhi, 27.12±0.38 mm for E. coli and 21.95±0.45 mm for P. aeruginosa.

The Drug-Resistant Pathogen Surveillance Group in Pediatric Infectious Disease has conducted surveillance of pediatric patients with respiratory tract infections, meningitis, and sepsis five times (in 2000-2001 [period 1], 2004 [period 2], 2007 [period 3], 2010 [period 4], and 2012 [period 5]). With respect to the clinically isolated Haemophilus influenzae, the drug susceptibility, the frequency of drug-resistant strains, and patients' background factors in each period have already been reported. Here we evaluate trends in the development of drug resistance in H. influenzae, and the relationship between the development of drug resistance and patients' background factors in the aforementioned five periods. H. influenzae derived from pediatric patients with respiratory tract infections that had been previously collected (period 1, 448 isolates; period 2, 376 isolates; period 3, 386 isolates; period 4, 484 isolates; and period 5, 411 isolates) were analyzed. The proportions of ß-lactamase-nonproducing ampicillin (ABPC)-intermediate resistant (BLNAI) strains + β-lactamase-nonproducing ABPC-resistant (BLNAR) strains were 28.8% in period 1, 59.3% in period 2, 61.1% in period 3, 58.1% in period 4, and 63.5% in period 5, showing a rapid increase from period 1 to period 2 followed by an almost constant rate of approximately 60%. The proportion of ß-lactamase-producing ABPC-resistant (BLPAR) strains + ß-lactamase-producing clavulanic acid/amoxicillin-resistant (BLPACR) strains was 4.4% in period 3, which was somewhat low; however, there were no significant changes in the proportions of these strains, which ranged between 6.4% and 8.7% throughout the surveillance period except for period 3. The drugs whose MIC90 values against BLNAR Coumadin Y Alcohol strains were low throughout the surveillance included piperacillin (0.25 μg/mL) and tazobactam/piperacillin (0.125-0.25 μg/mL) in the penicillins; cefditoren and ceftriaxone (0.25-0.5 μg/mL for both) in the cephems; meropenem (0.5-1 μg/mL) and tebipenem (1 μg/mL) in the carbapenems; and levofloxacin, tosufloxacin, and garenoxacin (≤ 0.06 μg/mL for all) and norfloxacin (0.06-0.125 μg/mL) in the quinolones. We investigated the relationship between the frequency of BLNAS strains/BLNAI + BLNAR strains and patients' background factors in each surveillance period. Significant differences were shown on age category (< 3 years or ≥ 3 years) in all periods except period 4, and the presence/absence of prior administration of antimicrobial agents within one month in period 2 and period 3. In all periods, the frequency of BLNAI + BLNAR strains were higher in patients aged < 3 years than in patients aged ≥ 3 years, and were also higher in patients with presence of prior treatment than in patients without prior treatment. We consider that it is important to promote the proper use of antimicrobial agents by conducting surveillance continuously in the future to clarify the relationship between the development of drug resistance in H. influenzae and patients' background factors and provide those information to clinical setting.

Three fluoroquinolone antibiotics (ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and danofloxacin) have been determined in human serum in the presence of the potential interferent salicylate, by processing lanthanide-sensitized excitation-time decay matrix data for their terbium (III) complexes. The algorithm employed, multivariate curve resolution-alternating least-squares, is one of the few methodologies which permit the achievement of the second-order advantage in the presence of a high degree of overlapping between the time decay profiles for the analyte and the interferent complexes. Furthermore, the presence of analyte-background interactions makes it necessary to employ the standard addition method for successful quantitation. Both simulations and experiments showed that the modified standard addition method was suitable for this purpose, in which the test data matrix was subtracted from the standard addition matrices, and quantitation proceeded using classical external calibration procedure. The analyte concentration ranges were all within the therapeutic range, i.e., 0-6 mgL(-1) in serum, with final concentrations in the measuring cell in Buy Epivir Online the order of 0.2 mgL(-1).

The effect of ferrous sulphate on the absorption of norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin was studied in three separate, two-period crossover trials, each involving eight healthy volunteers. After an overnight fast, a single dose of norfloxacin (400 mg), ciprofloxacin (500 mg) or ofloxacin (400 mg) was administered Lamictal 250 Mg with and without ferrous sulphate (corresponding to 100 mg elemental iron). The absorption of all the fluoroquinolones studied was significantly reduced when they were co-administered with ferrous sulphate. The reduction in the area under the plasma drug concentration-time curve from 0 to 24 h was most marked in the case of norfloxacin, while ofloxacin was least affected by ferrous sulphate. The AUC of norfloxacin was reduced by 73% (P < 0.001) and its peak plasma concentration by 75% (P < 0.01) by concomitant ingestion of ferrous sulphate. The AUC and peak plasma concentration of ciprofloxacin were reduced by 57% (P < 0.001) and 54% (P < 0.01), respectively, by ferrous sulphate. Concomitant ingestion of ferrous sulphate reduced the AUC and peak plasma concentration of ofloxacin by 25% (P < 0.01) and 36% (P < 0.01), respectively. Similar results were obtained with respect to the urinary recoveries of each fluoroquinolone. We recommend that norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin should not be taken together with ferrous sulphate. It would also be advisable not to take ofloxacin with ferrous sulphate, especially if the organism causing infection is only moderately susceptible.

Fluoroquinolones and cephalosporins are two classes of veterinary antibiotics arising as pollutants of emerging concern. In this work, the microbial degradation of two representative antibiotics of both these classes, enrofloxacin (ENR) and ceftiofur (CEF), is reported. Biodegradation of the target antibiotics was investigated by supplementing the culture medium with ENR and CEF, individually and in mixture. Microbial inocula were obtained from rhizosphere sediments of plants derived from experimental constructed wetlands designed for the treatment of livestock wastewaters contaminated with trace amounts of these antibiotics. Selected microbial inocula were acclimated during a period of 5months, where the antibiotics were supplemented every three weeks at the concentration of 1mgL(-1), using acetate as a co-substrate. After this period, the acclimated consortia were investigated for their capacity to biodegrade 2 and 3mgL(-1) of ENR and CEF. Complete removal of CEF from the inoculated culture medium was always observed within 21days, independently of its concentration or the concomitant presence of ENR. Biodegradation of ENR decreased with the increase in its concentration in the culture medium, with defluorination percentages decreasing from ca. 65 to 4%. Ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin were detected as biodegradation intermediates of ENR in the microbial cultures supplemented with this antibiotic, indicating that defluorination of at least part of ENR in these cultures is not an immediate catabolic step. Abiotic mechanisms showed high influence in the removal of CEF, affecting less ENR degradation. The acclimation process with the target antibiotics led to significant shifts in the structure and diversity of the microbial communities, predominantly selecting microorganisms belonging to the phyla Proteobacteria (e.g. Achromobacter, Variovorax and Levaquin Overdose Stenotrophomonas genera) and Bacteroidetes (e.g. Dysgonomonas, Flavobacterium and Chryseobacterium genera). The results presented in this study indicate that biodegradation can be an important mechanism for the environmental removal of the tested compounds.

A simple, sensitive and reproducible ultra-performance liquid chromatography method for determination of ciprofloxacin, difloxacin, lomefloxacin, norfloxacin and ofloxacin oxidation stability under permanganate treatment in acidic conditions at pH from 3.0 to 6.0, was developed. Chromatographic separations were carried out using the Acquity UPLC BEH C18 column; (2.1×100 mm, 1.7 μm particle size). The column was maintained at 40°C, and eluted under isocratic conditions using 83% of eluent A and 17% of eluent B over 6.5 min, at a flow rate of 0.3 mL min(-1). Eluent A: water/formic acid (0.1 v/v%); eluent B: acetonitrile/formic acid (0.1 v/v%). An oxidation process followed kinetic of the second order reaction and depended upon solution acidity. Oxidation of fluoroquinolones proceeded at piperazine moiety yielding respective hydroxy and oxo analogs, and remaining the quinolone fragment intact. Structures of products formed were assigned on a basis of UPLC/MS/MS fragmentation pathways.

The in vitro activity of ofloxacin, a new fluoroquinolone anti-infective agent, was evaluated against 419 ocular bacterial isolates of 55 species to determine its potential as a topical agent for the treatment of ocular infections. Other agents tested in this study, in which a modified tube-dilution procedure was used, include norfloxacin, gentamicin, tobramycin, chloramphenicol, and polymyxin B. Ofloxacin demonstrated good to excellent activity against a variety of gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens. The minimum inhibitory concentration against 90% of all bacterial strains tested (MIC90) of ofloxacin was 0.5 microgram/ml for Staphylococcus aureus and S. epidermidis, 2 micrograms/ml for Streptococcus pneumoniae, and 4 micrograms/ml for Pseudomonas aeruginosa. These species were more susceptible to ofloxacin than to any of the nonquinolones tested. The MIC90 of ofloxacin was lower than that of norfloxacin, another quinolone, against S. aureus, S. epidermidis, and St. pneumoniae and equal to that of norfloxacin against P. aeruginosa. Because of its broad spectrum of activity and excellent in vitro activity, we concluded that ofloxacin has the potential for development into a superior topical treatment for ocular infection.

A library of isogenic mutants containing Mud9-induced deletions of the structural and regulatory genes for the porin proteins OmpF and OmpC of Escherichia coli was constructed. The accumulation of norfloxacin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, cephalothin and cefoxitin was measured with each strain, and shown to be reproducible with low experimental standard deviations, such that the roles of OmpF, OmpC and PhoE in the accumulation of these agents were determined. All data were statistically analysed to determine whether the differences observed between the data for each mutant compared with those for the other mutants and for the wild-type strain were significant. The loss of OmpF reduced accumulation of norfloxacin, tetracycline, cephalothin and cefoxitin by 16-60% compared to the wild-type parent strain, but reduced accumulation of chloramphenicol by < 10%. The loss of OmpC reduced accumulation of cephalothin and cefoxitin by 13 and 34%, respectively, compared to the wild-type parent strain, but had little effect on the accumulation of norfloxacin, chloramphenicol and tetracycline (< 3%). The loss of both OmpF and OmpC (ompR) reduced accumulation of norfloxacin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline, cephalothin and cefoxitin by 36-68%. However, the presence of PhoE in the absence of both OmpF and OmpC, enhanced accumulation to 52-119% of the concentrations of these five agents accumulated by the wild-type strain. These data suggest that OmpF is the preferred route of entry for three of the antibiotics studied, but not for chloramphenicol and tetracycline which utilize both porins equally well. The high levels of accumulation (30-64%) of all five antibiotics in the absence of all major porins suggest that an alternative mechanism(s) of accumulation is available.
