The combination of DTT and paclitaxel treatment induced microtubule organization in dead sperm from the fertile donor following heterologous ICSI. This treatment, however, was not effective for DFS sperm. In addition, expression of centrin, a protein functioning within the sperm centrosome, was reduced in DFS sperm from that of the normal levels observed in fertile donor sperm.

Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (SXT), alone and in combination with rifampicin (RIF), is a therapeutic option against Staphylococcus aureus, including strains expressing meticillin resistance. However, the antimicrobial activity of SXT is antagonised by thymidine, which can be present in infected and/or inflamed tissues such as the airways of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. In this study, thymidine concentrations in CF sputa were determined and the antimicrobial activities of SXT, 5-iodo-2'-deoxyuridine (IdUrd) and RIF alone and in combination against S. aureus were analysed. Thymidine concentrations in the sputa of ten different CF patients varied from <100 μg/L to 38845 μg/L. The abolished antimicrobial activity of SXT against 22 S. aureus strains in the presence of thymidine was restored by combination with IdUrd. In contrast, SXT combined with RIF in the presence of thymidine did not show a synergistic effect and, furthermore, allowed the emergence of RIF-resistant bacteria. Adding RIF to the combination of SXT and IdUrd did not improve antimicrobial activity against S. aureus. In conclusion, the combination of SXT and RIF as a therapeutic option against S. aureus infections in chronic inflamed tissues should be judged critically.

The effects of cotrimoxazole (CTX) and spiramycin (Spir) in mice infected in midpregnancy with the Beverley (Bev) strain of Toxoplasma gondii were compared. Therapeutic effectiveness was determined according to the following parameters: rate of successful delivery, litter size, offspring weight and survival. When compared with the uninfected untreated control group, CTX showed a more beneficial therapeutic effect than Spir, with a statistically significant increase in the rate of both successful delivery and offspring survival. Results based on antitoxoplasma antibody determinations in the offspring indicated a better in utero control of congenital infection by CTX than by Spir.
We isolated five bacterial strains from patients diagnosed as having nocardiosis. Bacterial species were identified based on the similarities in the nucleotide sequences of 16S ribosomal RNAs. Three of the five strains were identified as Nocardia asteroids, but unexpectedly other two were Streptomyces hygroscopicus and Rothia dentocariosa. The latter two species are not members of the family Nocardiaceae. We investigated the susceptibilities of these five strains to the following nine antimicrobial agents: trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX), minocycline (MINO), erythromycin (EM), amikacin (AMK), cefotaxime (CTX), faropenem (FRPM), imipenem (IPM), ciprofloxacin (CPFX), and sparfloxacin (SPFX). The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) ranges (mg/ml) were as follows: TMP-SMX, 4- > 32; MINO, 0.125-8; EM, < or = 0.016- > 32; AMK, 1-2; CTX, 0.063- > 32; FRPM, 0.063-16; IPM, 0.125-2; CPFX, 4-32; and SPFX, 0.5-16. Moreover, the synergistic effects of AMK in combination with each of TMP-SMX, MINO, EM, CTX, IPM, and SPFX were investigated by checkerboard synergy testing. No antagonism was recognized for the three N. asteroides strains. Synergistic and additive effects were observed for the combinations of AMK with CTX, IPM, or SPFX.
Of the 30 children with serum sickness like reaction, 19 had received cefaclor alone, six penicillin V, two amoxycillin, and one each flucloxacillin cotrimoxazole and triacetylolendomycin (TAO). Children received these antimicrobials for 3-10 days.

A 63-year-old woman developed myositis or idiopathic orbital inflammation (OI). Whipple disease had been diagnosed 1 year before by duodenal biopsy. OI appeared 1 year following the end of a long course of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole treatment. During follow-up months later, recurrent OI was noted in the same and contralateral orbits. Flare-ups of OI were suggestive of disease relapse and subsequent duodenal biopsy confirmed the presence of PAS-positive particles in macrophages. Treatment with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and corticosteroids was necessary to prevent recurrences.
Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis is a difficult condition to diagnose accurately either by symptoms and signs or by investigations. Four groups of patients were assessed for the number of leucocytes and the presence of pathogens in expressed prostatic secretions before and after treatment with co-trimoxazole two tablets twice daily for three months. The pretreatment findings suggest that the upper limit of normal for the number of leucocytes in expressed prostatic secretions is about five per microscope field (X 40 magnification) and that for the cell count about 0.5 X 10(9)/l using the method described. Increased microscopical cell estimations and cell counts in the expressed prostatic secretions of patients with symptoms of prostatitis and those with recurrent non-specific urethritis seem to indicate the presence of prostatitis.
