Tropheryma whippelii was found in the heart valves (three aortic valves and one mitral valve) of four patients with culture-negative endocarditis necessitating valve replacement. All patients had arthralgia for different lengths of time. Only one patient had mild gastrointestinal symptoms. Histologic characteristics of intestinal mucosa were normal in all patients, and polymerase chain reaction on intestinal biopsy was positive for T. whippelii in only one patient, who did not have diarrhea. In all patients, arthralgia resolved promptly after institution of antibiotic therapy. Disease did not recur in any patient after prolonged antibiotic therapy with cotrimoxazole.

A high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method was developed for the simultaneous analysis of trimethoprim (TMP), sulphamethoxazole (SMX), and acetylsulphamethoxazole (AcSMX) in small amounts of blood. The method involved precipitation with 50 microL trichloracetic acid (1M) to 125 microL plasma or serum sample. 60 microL supernatant was added to 60 microL mobile phase, modified with 50microL 1 M sodium hydroxide/mL. The mobile phase consisted of 20% acetonitrile and 80% phosphate buffer adjusted to pH 6.15. Using 125 microL of the sample, limits of quantitation were 0.1 microg/mL for TMP, 1.0 microg/mL for SMX, and 1.0 microg/mL for AcSMX. The precision of the method was 2% to 11% over the range of concentrations tested, 0.5-30 microg/mL for TMP, 5-300 microg/mL for SMX, and 2.5-150 microg/mL for AcSMX, respectively. No interference with other commonly used drugs was observed. The method is rapid, simple, specific, and sensitive enough for pharmacokinetic studies. The small amount of blood required makes it suitable for pediatric patients. The method was used to analyze samples from Tanzanian children aged 6-59 months participating in a cotrimoxazole (TMP/SMX)/chloroquine randomized trial for the treatment of uncomplicated malaria. Venous blood samples from 68 children were collected 2 hours after the first dose of TMP/SMX (4 mg/kg TMP/20 mg/kg SMX at two divided doses for 5 days) and again at treatment day 4. Individual variations in plasma concentrations of TMP, SMX, and AcSMX were considerable. The mean and SEM plasma concentrations (g/mL) of TMP, SMX, and AcSMX 2 hours after the first treatment dose were 2.0 +/- 1.0 (range 0.5-6), 53 +/- 22 (range 24-146), and 13.5 +/- 12 (range 0-65), respectively. On the fourth day the attained plasma concentrations were not significantly different from samples collected after the first dose.

Between June 1988 and September 1996 12 of 65 infants (18%) admitted to the Department of Pediatrics, Ramathibodi Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand with purulent meningitis were infected with Salmonella spp. Their ages ranged from 1.5 to 6 months. Six of the infants had diarrhoea, 9 had seizures, and 11 had subdural effusion or empyema. Six infants required surgical treatment; 2 had brain abscesses. Salmonella was recovered from the cerebrospinal fluid of 11 infants and from the subdural fluid of 10. Eight infants were successfully treated with cefotaxime alone or in combination with co-trimoxazole, one with co-trimoxazole, and one with the combination of co-trimoxazole and ampicillin. The duration of treatment was 6 weeks, except for one patient who had a large brain abscess and was treated for 8 weeks. The last 2 patients, despite the fact that the organisms were susceptible to cefotaxime, failed to respond clinically to appropriate doses of it. Both were cured after ciprofloxacin was added to the therapy. Ciprofloxacin is probably the drug of choice to be used in addition to the previously used antibiotics for severe cases of Salmonella meningitis in infants.

Thirty-five patients with meningitis caused by Haemophilus influenzae type b were admitted to our hospital from January 1981 to December 1984; 60% of the strains were resistant to ampicillin, 65.7% to chloramphenicol, and 57% to both antibiotics. No significant differences in age, sex, previous treatment, clinical symptoms, outcome, and mortality were found between the 20 patients whose strains were resistant to both ampicillin and chloramphenicol and the other 15 patients whose strains were susceptible to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, or both. Alternative therapeutic agents were a combination of carbenicillin and gentamicin and new cephalosporins. At present, cefotaxime is our treatment of choice for meningitis caused by H. influenzae type b.

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a worldwide leading cause of morbidity and mortality, while susceptibility towards penicillin and macrolides can be less than 50% in many regions.

This was a retrospective case-control study. Subjects were veterans with Gram-negative UTIs seen at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center from 1 July 1996 to 31 December 1999. Subjects were linked to a national VA outpatient pharmacy database. Cases and controls were identified based on the results of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole susceptibility testing.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether gilthead sea bream and sea bass treated with combination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) differed in terms of physiological and innate immune biomarkers. Fish were exposed to TMP-SMX at 40 ppm concentration for 1 h as a prophylactic usage. Plasma cortisol, glucose, electrolytes (Ca, P, Na, K, Cl, and Mg) as well as plasma lysozyme activity, C-reactive protein (CRP), and ceruloplasmin (Cp) were measured soon after treatment and following 24 and 48 h in normal sea water for recovery. Treatment with TMP-SMX in both gilthead sea bream and sea bass led to an increase in plasma cortisol and glucose. Fluctuations in some electrolytes were found after treatment and during recovery period, however, the ratios of monovalent ions in treated sea bream were similar to control. Hematocrit values as well as plasma lysozyme activity in gilthead sea bream and sea bass were not affected by the treatment. CRP in gilthead sea bream and Cp in sea bass responded to the treatment with decreased levels. Both gilthead sea bream and sea bass displayed a rapid physiological stress response and sensitivity to TMP-SMX exposure, which requires more than 48-h period for regaining homeostasis.

Patients received cyclosporine microemulsion or tacrolimus capsules twice/day in combination with once-daily sirolimus solution and corticosteroids. Sirolimus was administered 6 hours after the morning dose of cyclosporine or tacrolimus. After receiving a 6-mg loading dose of sirolimus, participants received sirolimus 2 mg/day for at least 7 days. Neither the cyclosporine nor the tacrolimus dosage was adjusted for at least 3 days before and during blood sampling for pharmacokinetic profiling.

The records of 39 patients with CGD who were monitored during a period of 22 years were reviewed. All infections, infectious complications, and clinical outcomes were documented for a total observation period of 610 patient-years and were stratified with respect to different CGD subtypes.

In a multicenter open study, intraperitoneal aztreonam was used together with vancomycin, cloxacillin, or flucloxacillin for initial empiric treatment of peritonitis associated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Monotherapy with aztreonam was continued in 34 episodes of gram-negative peritonitis in 28 patients. The microorganisms isolated included Escherichia coli, Acinetobacter species, Pseudomonas species, and Klebsiella species. In three episodes, two organisms were cultured. Microbiologic assessment revealed cure in 27 episodes, cure with relapse in two, cure with superinfection in one, and treatment failure in four (with resistance to aztreonam in three). As assessed by clinical criteria, 27 episodes were cured, five failed to respond, and two responded partially. No adverse reactions to aztreonam were observed. Comparison of these 34 episodes with 35 episodes in historical controls (treated mainly with aminoglycosides and/or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole) showed significantly higher rates of cure (84% vs. 51%) and of survival (97% vs. 86%) as well as lower rates of catheter removal (65% vs. 87%) with aztreonam. Thus aztreonam is a safe and efficient agent for the treatment of peritonitis caused by gram-negative organisms in patients undergoing CAPD.

The time-kill effect of moxifloxacin on 20 genetically distinct isolates of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia resistant to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole was studied. The majority (80%) were killed by a concentration equivalent to four times the MIC; the MIC induced a transient decrease in bacterial counts at 4 h, followed by regrowth. No effect was detected in four isolates. These results merit further clinical consideration.
