Seventy-five H. pylori-infected patients were randomized in a double-blind fashion to receive a 7-day treatment regimen consisting of: RAC, RAM, RCM, or RC (R=rabeprazole 20 mg b.d., A=amoxycillin 1 g b.d., C=clarithromycin 500 mg b.d., M=metronidazole 400 mg b.d.). Randomized patients were H. pylori-positive by gastric biopsy urease test, histology and 13C urea breath test (13C-UBT). H. pylori eradication was assessed by 13C-UBT, 4 and 8 wk after finishing treatment. Endoscopy with histology and culture for antibiotic sensitivity testing was performed pretreatment and if treatment failed.

Trichomonas vaginalis, a flagellated, urogenital anaerobic protozoon is reported as an important cause of vaginitis with a global distribution. Although metronidazole is the primary choice of drug for the treatment of trichomoniasis, the presence of resistant isolates from many different countries highlights the need of novel drugs for the treatment. Many studies from Turkey mostly dealing with the in vitro effects of compounds and natural products against T.vaginalis have been reported, however, only one study has been encountered searching the metronidazole resistance in a single T.vaginalis isolate. The aim of this study was to determine the in vitro metronidazole resistance and minimum lethal concentrations (MLCs) of the isolates from symptomatic cases. T.vaginalis strains isolated from vaginal discharge samples of symptomatic women that were sent to Adnan Menderes University Faculty of Medicine, Research and Training Hospital Parasitology Laboratory, between 2009-2014 period, were included in the study. The strains were isolated by the inoculation of samples into trypticase-yeast-maltose medium supplemented with 10% fetal calf serum. A total of 40 T.vaginalis isolates stored by cryopreservation were revived before the experiments. T.vaginalis trophozoites were incubated with different concentrations of metronidazole (200, 100, 50, 25, 12.5, 6.25, 3.12, 1.56 μg/ml) and the viability of cells were examined in both aerobic and anaerobic conditions under phase contrast microscope. Additionally, non-motile isolates were further inoculated into fresh media and viability was checked. The wells containing motile trophozoites after 48 hours of incubation with 15 µg/ml and/or higher metronidazole concentration in anaerobic condition and 75 µg/ml and/or higher metronidazole concentration in aerobic conditions were determined as resistant isolates. Of the 40 T.vaginalis isolates three (7.5%) were resistant to metronidazole. MLC mean values of metronidazole-sensitive isolates were 27.17 µg/ml in aerobic and 7.75 µg/ml in anaerobic conditions. The rate of metronidazole resistance detected in this study was higher than most of reports from different countries. Despite being limited to the isolates from Aydin province (located at Agean region of Turkey), the present study has a value as it presented the existence of metronidazole-resistant isolates in Turkey for the first time. More research from other parts of Turkey is needed to better understand the metronidazole resistance at a national scale and to investigate novel strategies for the treatment. Moreover, further studies need to be carried out in order to clarify the relationship between clinical treatment response and in vitro metronidazole resistance in trichomoniasis.

Daptomycin is licensed in adults for the management of Staphylococcus aureus methicillin-resistant infections, including bone and skin complicated infections. We describe for the first time its use in a renal transplant recipient for Fabry-Anderson Disease with right heel osteomyelitis. The patient was unresponsive to first-line Teicoplanin and second-line Tigecycline, whereas he was successfully treated with third-line Daptomycin monotherapy at 4 mg/Kg/qd for 4 weeks. Local debridement was performed in advance of each line of treatment.

Sixty hamsters weighing 100-120 g were randomly assigned to 2 equal groups. GI was injected intramuscularly with saline, half an hour preoperatively as control, and GII was injected with 50 mg/kg Cefepime HCI & 7.5 mg/kg Metronidazole. After a midline lapparotomy, abdominal adhesions were induced in GI & GII. Post-operration, animals in GI was divided according to the numbers of intramuscular saline injections into 2 subgroups. GIa (15) in which animals were injected every 12 hours for 2 doses and GIb (15) where animals were injected every 12 hours for 5 days. Similarly, the antibiotic group was subdivided into GIIa (15) and GIIb (15). On the 14th day, the hamsters were sacrificed and the adhesion score was determined. The 5 day antibiotics course revealed significant reduction in incidence (P < 0.01), extent (P < 0.001) and severity (P < 0.01) of the postoperative peritoneal adhesions, while the short course failed.

Single-center multidisciplinary retrospective study.
Eight randomized clinical trials, comparing the application of 25% metronidazole dental gel (Elzylol dental gel) once a week for two weeks with scaling and root planing in the "split-mouth" design for treating adult periodontitis, were evaluated and scored according to ANTCZAK et al. (1986) and BEGG et al. (1996). The aim of this investigation was to determine whether both treatment methods are of equal value. With a maximum of 1.0 in each case, the scores determined were (M +/- SD) 0.107 +/- 0.033 (range 0.072-0.168) for reporting the study protocol and 0.285 +/- 0.084 (range 0.120-0.400) for the data analysis, presentation and discussion. Though the study results show that both treatment modalities are of equal value, the quality of the trials does not allow a comparative therapy assessment at present. The state of the data is inadequate for applying local metronidazole dental gel as an alternative to mechanical instrumentation in adult periodontitis.

In per-protocol analysis of 112 patients the H. pylori eradication rate was 42.3% (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.29-0.56) in LAT, and 64.8% (95%CI: 0.52-0.78) in LAC (95%CI of difference of proportions: 0.13-0.33, P = 0.01). Ulcer healed in 69.2% in the LAT group (95%CI: 0.57-0.82) and 81.7% in the LAC group (95%CI: 0.72-0.92; P = 0.02). Antibiotic susceptibility testing was done in 31 patients. Metronidazole resistance was present in 41.9% isolates but was unrelated to the outcome of the LAT regimen.
One-hundred and sixty patients with dyspeptic complaints and naïve Helicobacter pylori infection were randomized into four groups: 41 patients received standard 14-day quadruple treatment (STD) (Rabeprazole 20mg-bid, bismuth subcitrate (120 mg-qid), Tetracycline 500 mg-qid, Metronidazole 500 mg-tid) for 2 weeks. The modified sequential therapy groups received 20 mg rabeprazole and 1g amoxicillin, twice daily for the first 5 days, followed by Rabeprazole 20mg-bid, bismuth subcitrate (120 mg-qid), Tetracycline 500 mg-qid, Metronidazole 500 mg-tid for the remaining 5 (10 day sequential therapy group-10S) (42 patients), 7 (12 day sequential therapy group-12S) (42 patients) and 9 (14 day sequential therapy group-14S) (41 patients) days.
The proton translocating electron transport systems (F420H2:heterodisulfide oxidoreductase and H2:heterodisulfide oxidoreductase) of Methanosarcina mazei Gö1 were inhibited by diphenyleneiodonium chloride (DPI) indicated by IC50 values of 20 nmol DPI.mg-1 protein and 45 nmol DPI.mg-1 protein, respectively. These effects are due to a complex interaction of DPI with key enzymes of the electron transport chains. It was found that 2-hydroxyphenazine-dependent reactions as catalyzed by F420-nonreducing hydrogenase, F420H2 dehydrogenase and heterodisulfide reductase were inhibited. Interestingly, the H2-dependent methylviologen reduction and the heterodisulfide reduction by reduced methylviologen as catalyzed by the hydrogenase and the heterodisulfide reductase present in washed membranes were unaffected by DPI, respectively. Analysis of the redox behavior of membrane-bound cytochromes indicated that DPI inhibited CoB-S-S-CoM-dependent oxidation of reduced cytochromes and H2-dependent cytochrome reduction. Membrane-bound and purified F420H2 dehydrogenase were inhibited by DPI irrespectively whether methylviologen + metronidazole or 2-hydroxyphenazine were used as electron acceptors. Detailed examination of 2-hydroxy-phenazine-dependent F420H2-oxidation revealed that DPI is a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme, indicated by the Km value for 2-hydroxyphenazine, which increased from 35 microm to 100 microm in the presence of DPI. As DPI and phenazines are structurally similar with respect to their planar configuration we assume that the inhibitor is able to bind to positions where interaction between phenazines and components of the electron transport systems take place. Thus, electron transfer from reduced 2-hydroxyphenazine to cytochrome b2 as part of the heterodisulfide reductase and from H2 to cytochrome b1 as subunit of the membrane-bound hydrogenase is affected in the presence of DPI. In case of the F420H2 dehydrogenase electron transport from FAD or from FeS centers to 2-hydroxyphenazine is inhibited.

Rosacea affects patients' lives to a moderate extent, and this can be assessed by using DLQI. DLQI is also sensitive to quality of life changes brought about by treatment of rosacea. As a preliminary result we can say that topical metronidazole, oral tetracycline and oral isotretinoin seem to improve quality of life of patients by improving lesions of rosacea more efficiently than other therapeutic agents.

Clostridium difficile is an emerging and potentially zoonotic pathogen, but its prevalence in most animal species, including exhibition animals, is currently unknown. In this study we assessed the prevalence of faecal shedding of C. difficile by zoo animals, and determined the ribotype, toxin profile and antimicrobial susceptibility of recovered isolates. A total of 200 samples from 40 animal species (36.5% of which came from plains zebra, Equus quagga burchellii) were analysed. C. difficile was isolated from 7 samples (3.5% of total), which came from the following animal species: chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes troglodytes), dwarf goat (Capra hircus), and Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica hispanica), with one positive sample each; and plains zebra, with 4 positive samples from 3 different individuals. Most recovered isolates (4/7, 57.1%) belonged to the epidemic PCR ribotype 078, produced toxins A and B, and had the genes encoding binary toxin (i.e. A(+)B(+)CDT(+) isolates). The remaining three isolates belonged to PCR ribotypes 039 (A(-)B(-)CDT(-)), 042 (A(+)B(+)CDT(-)) and 110 (A(-)B(+)CDT(-)). Regardless of their ribotype, all isolates displayed high-level resistance to the fluoroquinolones ciprofloxacin, enrofloxacin and levofloxacin. Some isolates were also resistant to meropenem and/or ertapenem. A ribotype 078 isolate recovered from a male zebra foal initially showed in vitro resistance to metronidazole (MIC ≥ 256 μg/ml), but lost that trait after subculturing on non-selective media. We conclude that zoo animals belonging to different species can carry ribotype 078 and other toxigenic strains of C. difficile showing resistance to antimicrobial compounds commonly used in veterinary and/or human medicine.

Rosacea is relatively common, typically occurring in individuals of Northern European and Celtic origin between 30 and 50 years of age. It is more common in women, but may be more severe in men. Currently there is no cure available for rosacea, but it can be controlled with topical and oral drug therapy. Topical metronidazole 1% cream is approved by the US FDA for the treatment of inflammatory lesions (papules and pustules) and erythema associated with rosacea. This treatment option is effective, safe and well tolerated.

Antimicrobial drugs used in clinical practice are selected on the basis of their selective toxicity against bacterial cells. However, all exhibit multiple offsite interactions with eukaryotic cell structures, resulting in adverse reactions during antimicrobial pharmacotherapy. A multitude of these side effects involve the nervous system as antimicrobials at clinically relevant concentrations seem to interact with many of the same molecules usually implicated in the action of psychotropic drugs. The importance of such events cannot be overstated, as the misdiagnosis of an adverse drug reaction as a symptom of a primary psychiatric or neurological disorder entails great suffering for the patient affected as well as significant costs for the healthcare system. The neuropsychiatric effects of antimicrobial drugs are extensively documented in the literature. A number of antimicrobial drugs have the potential to exert CNS effects and many are associated with stimulant, psychotomimetic and epileptogenic properties, mediated by GABA antagonism (beta-lactams, quinolones and clarithromycin), NMDA agonism (D-cycloserine, aminoglycosides, and perhaps quinolones), MAO inhibition (linezolid, metronidazole and isoniazid weakly) as well as more exotic mechanisms, as in the case of trimethoprim, isoniazid, ethambutol, rifampicin and the tetracyclines. While those effects are generally undesirable, they may also under certain circumstances be beneficial, and further research is warranted in that direction.
In Japan, the combination of a PPI plus amoxicillin and metronidazole provide excellent eradication rates after initial treatment failure with a PPI plus amoxicillin and clarithromycin. The results with metronidazole resistant strains are less satisfactory and pretreatment susceptibility testing may become needed if the prevalence of metronidazole resistant H. pylori increase.

SMT19969 [2,2'-bis(4-pyridyl)3H,3'-H 5,5-bibenzimidazole] is a novel narrow-spectrum nonabsorbable antibiotic currently in development for the treatment of Clostridium difficile infection. The comparative activities of SMT19969 and vancomycin against nonepidemic and epidemic strains of C. difficile were studied in an established hamster model. Against nonepidemic (VA11) strains, the survival rates of SMT19969-treated animals ranged from 80% to 95%. Vancomycin exhibited 100% protection during treatment, with relapse observed starting on day 9 and 50% survival at day 20. At 50 mg/kg of body weight, SMT19969 administered orally once daily for 5 days provided full protection of treated animals on the dosing days and through day 12 against epidemic strains. Vancomycin also protected during the dosing interval, but apparent relapse occurred earlier, starting on day 11. SMT19969 exhibited excellent in vitro activity, with MICs of 0.25 μg/ml for all isolates. The MICs for vancomycin were 2- to 4-fold higher at ≤0.5 to 1 μg/ml. All plasma sample concentrations of SMT19969 were below the limit of quantification (25 ng/ml) at all time points, consistent with the reported lack of bioavailability of the compound. Cecal concentrations were significantly above the MIC (ranging from 96 μg/ml to 172 μg/ml).

The participants' preferences for postoperative maintenance therapies were widely distributed, and no clinical or demographic factors predicted these preferences. This emphasizes the need for effective communication between physician and patient in order to select the treatment options most consistent with a patient's informed preferences.

Simultaneous Klebsiella pneumoniae and amoebic liver abscess is rarely reported in immunocompetent patients. A 47-year-old man was hospitalized with abdominal pain, fever, chills, and hypotension. Physical examination revealed right upper quadrant tenderness. Abdominal computed tomography showed an area of low attenuation with some liquefaction in the liver. Echo-guided aspiration revealed 30 mL of pus, which grew Klebsiella pneumoniae, and the same organism was isolated from the blood. Cytology examination of the pus showed scattered amoeba. The patient gradually improved over 1 month on treatment with cefmetazole and metronidazole, along with repeated drainage of the abscess. His amoebic indirect hemagglutination titer was 1:128, but no parasite ova or amoeba were found in the stool. He had no evidence of immunocompromise. Parasitic diseases may be a predisposing factor for bacterial infections, including pyogenic liver abscess. The possible coexistence of amoebae and bacteria in a liver abscess should not be discounted.

Between November 2002 and July 2005, 16 chemoembolization procedures were performed in seven patients who had undergone biliary intervention. Prophylaxis was initiated with levofloxacin 500 mg daily and metronidazole 500 mg twice daily 2 days before chemoembolization and continued for 2 weeks after discharge. A bowel preparation regimen was given with neomycin 1 g plus erythromycin base 1 g orally at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 11 p. m. the day before chemoembolization. With the Fisher exact test, the incidence of infectious complications was compared with previously reported data for patients with and without earlier biliary intervention who had received standard prophylaxis.
