In this retrospective study conducted at three centers, 310 patients with H. pylori infection were treated. The diagnosis of H. pylori infection was made using the rapid urease test, bacterial cultures and histological examination of endoscopic biopsy specimens. The patients were assigned to receive an eradication regimen first or following pretreatment with H2RA. Eradication was assessed using the 13C-urea breath test more than 4 weeks after the completion of therapy.

We investigated the susceptibility to conventional and newer antimycobacterial agents including rifabutin (RBT) and novel fluoroquinolones (NFQs) among 48 clinical Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) isolates from patients with sputum culture-positive MAC disease who were undergoing standard chemotherapy. RBT and NFQs were superior to conventional agents because of higher rates of susceptibility and lower minimum inhibitory concentration. NFQs showed cross-resistance among quinolones. In contrast, RBT did not show cross-resistance to RFP. Most clarithromycin-resistant or rifampicin-resistant cases were susceptible to RBT and NFQs. In conclusion, RBT and NFQs possess good in vitro antimicrobial activity among clinical isolates of culture-positive pulmonary MAC disease, which suggests that a combination of such microbiologically active agents may improve clinical effectiveness more than standard chemotherapy regimens.

This study demonstrates that a 7-day pantoprazole 40 mg bid plus clarithromycin 500 mg bid and amoxicillin one gram bid therapy is an effective and well tolerated therapeutic approach for H. pylori eradication.

Clarithromycin resistance (CLR-R) is the main reason for failure of Helicobacter pylori infection treatment, which is frequently empirically prescribed due to the erroneous belief that culture for susceptibility testing is difficult. The aim of this study was to determine CLR-R in a region of southern Europe and to evaluate the utility of a PCR sequencing assay applied on gastroduodenal biopsies in detecting H. pylori and clarithromycin (CLR) susceptibility.

The reference method versus H pylori qPCR positivity showed 95% confidence interval sensitivity 100% versus 100%, specificity 93.2% (86.9-99.4) versus 100%, positive predictive value 59.7% (47.4-71.9) versus 100%, negative predictive value 100% versus 100%, and, finally, test accuracy of 59.6% (47.3-71.8) versus 100%. Sixty-two children were found to be H pylori positive, based on the qPCR results. Among those, 31 children had both positive qPCR and culture with concordant antimicrobial susceptibility testing results, whereas 31 children had negative culture and positive qPCR. The qPCR showed a bacterial load ≥10 copies per milliliter when culture, histology, and RUT were all positive (29/31 children) versus <10 copies per milliliter when culture, histology, and RUT were all negative (25/31 children). Grades 2 and 3 histological gastritis were associated with a bacterial load ≥10 copies per milliliter for 28/35 of children versus 27/27 of grade 0 to 1 <10 copies per milliliter.

SOL (10 μM) restored Dex sensitivity in PBMC from COPD patients, H2O2-treated U937 cells and phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate-differentiated U937 cells. In addition, SOL restored HDAC activity with concomitant inhibition of Akt phosphorylation as surrogate marker of PI3K activation. The inhibition of Akt phosphorylation by SOL was due to increased PP2A phosphatase activity, which was reduced in COPD and oxidative stress model. Other known macrolides, such as eryhthromycin, clarithromycin and azithromycin, were significantly less effective in these responses. In cigarette smoke-exposed mice, SOL (100 mg kg(-1), po) showed significant but weak inhibition of neutrophilia, whereas Dex (10 mg kg(-1), p.o.) showed no such effect. However, a combination of SOL and Dex inhibited neutrophilia by over 50%.

The medical records of patients with GOO treated from 1999 and 2009 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with infantile HPS and GOO secondary to corrosive ingestion or neoplasm were not included. Age, sex, family history, presenting symptoms and signs, radiologic methods and findings, type of management, histopathologic features, and outcome were noted for each patient.

There is currently insufficient evidence to inform whether antibiotics should be used to treat or prevent persistent respiratory symptoms in the post-acute bronchiolitis phase. Future RCTs that evaluate the efficacy of antibiotics to reduce persistent respiratory symptoms are required, especially in areas where both acute and post-bronchiolitis morbidity is high such as in Indigenous communities in the US, New Zealand and Australia.

We performed a literature search of all available English-language articles published on MEDLINE between January 1966 and January 2007 using the key terms micafungin (text and indexed terms) and pancreatitis (text and indexed terms). Based on the search of MEDLINE, there have been no reports of acute pancreatitis associated with micafungin. The Naranjo adverse drug reaction (ADR) probability scale was used to assess the probability of micafungin-associated acute pancreatitis. A score of 6 was obtained, indicating a probable ADR from micafungin treatment.

Against clarithromycin susceptible isolates, all antimicrobial agents except the fluoroquinolones were highly effective. Against clarithromycin-resistant H. pylori, the MIC50/MIC90 values showed that the tetracyclines and cefixime were the most efficacious agents. The fluoroquinolones and macrolides were ineffective. Macrolide cross-resistance was detected.
