To measure the effect of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) in preventing bacterial illness, Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), and death in people with AIDS, we conducted a retrospective medical record review of 1078 persons who were observed for 3 years on average who attended nine outpatient facilities in Seattle, Washington between January 1990 and April 1996. We calculated relative risk estimates to measure the protective effect of TMP-SMX on the development of major bacterial illnesses, PCP, and death. Use of TMP-SMX decreased the risk of PCP (relative risk [RR] = 0.23; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.14-0.36) and deaths not attributable to PCP (RR = 0.59; 95% CI, 0.47-0.73). Prevention of major bacterial illnesses of known etiology was of borderline significance (RR = 0.77; 95% CI, 0.57-1.05) and became statistically significant with the addition of patients with infections of unknown etiology (RR = 0.77; 95% CI 0.61-0.97). Use of TMP-SMX PCP prophylaxis significantly reduced the risks of death and of PCP and was associated with a trend toward reduced risk of major bacterial infections.

Ninety-two evaluable patients received TMP-SMX as initial therapy; 68 received pentamidine. Failure to complete therapy was common. Of those receiving TMP-SMX, 39 (42%) required change in therapy because of failure to respond, and an additional 31 (34%) because of drug toxicity. This compared with 27 (40%; P = 0.733) and 17 (25%; P = 0.235), respectively, in the pentamidine-treated group. The overall survival rates were similar in the two groups, 62 out of 92 (67%) initially administered TMP-SMX versus 50 out of 68 (74%) initially administered pentamidine (P = 0.402). The survival rates for patients requiring a change in therapy because of failure to respond was 46% (18 out of 39) for the TMP-SMX group compared with 56% (15 out of 27) for the pentamidine group. When a change in therapy was made because of toxicity, survival rates were 97% (30 out of 31) for those receiving TMP-SMX versus 94% (16 out of 17) for those receiving pentamidine.

We used a decision analysis model to perform cost-minimization and sensitivity analyses to determine the level of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) and fluoroquinolone resistance that would favor the use of nitrofurantoin as a first-line empirical treatment of uncomplicated UTIs. The model used a program perspective to evaluate costs.

Treatment of chronic prostatitis is difficult and many antimicrobial drugs have been tried. Although these drugs showed good permeability into prostatic fluid in experimental studies, they have limited value in clinical use and development of more effective drugs has been anticipated. A study was performed on the effect of Hachimi-ji-ji-oh-gan, a traditional Chinese medicine, for the treatment of chronic prostatitis. Symptoms were improved in 53% of the patients treated with sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim alone for two weeks and in 84% of those treated with Hachimi-ji-oh-gan in addition to sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim for two weeks. Since Hachimi-ji-oh-gan has no antimicrobial effect, the drug may change the characteristics of the prostatic tissue or prostatic fluid providing a favorable condition for antimicrobial agents to penetrate into the prostatic fluid. Further examination is necessary to disclose the machanism of Hachimi-ji-oh-gan on the effect of prostatitis.

In enteroaggregative hemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EAHEC) O104 the complex antibiotic resistance gene loci (CRL) found in the region of divergence 1 (RD1) within E. coli genomic island 3 (GI3) contains blaTEM-1, strAB, sul2, tet(A)A, and dfrA7 genes encoding resistance to ampicillin, streptomycin, sulfamethoxazole, tetracycline and trimethoprim respectively. The precise arrangement of antibiotic resistance genes and the role of mobile elements that drove the evolutionary events and created the CRL have not been investigated. We used a combination of bioinformatics and iterative BLASTn searches to determine the micro-evolutionary events that likely led to the formation of the CRL in GI3 using the closed genome sequences of EAHEC O104:H4 strains 2011C-3493 and 2009EL-2050 and high quality draft genomes of EAHEC E. coli O104:H4 isolates from sporadic cases not associated with the initial outbreak. Our analyses indicate that the CRL in GI3 evolved from a progenitor structure that contained an In2-derived class 1 integron in a Tn21/Tn1721 hybrid backbone. Within the hybrid backbone, a Tn6029-family transposon, identified here as Tn6029C abuts the sul1 gene in the 3'-Conserved Segment (-CS) of a class 1 integron generating a unique molecular signature that has only previously been observed in pASL01a, a small plasmid found in commensal E. coli in West Africa. From this common progenitor, independent IS26-mediated events created two novel transposons identified here as Tn6029D and Tn6222 in 2011C-3493 and 2009EL-2050 respectively. Analysis of RD1 within GI3 reveals IS26 has played a crucial role in the assembly of regions within the CRL.

Although norfloxacin (N) is widely accepted as the drug of choice for spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) prophylaxis, there is data to suggest that trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TS) may be similarly effective. However, no studies have compared the efficacy and safety of N and TS in SBP prophylaxis. The aim of this retrospective analysis was to compare outcomes in patients who received either N or TS for the prevention of SBP.

No doubt, pediculosis capitis or Pediculus h. capitis infestation is an increasing health problem particularly among Egyptian children. Many chemical pediculocides are used with a variety of effectiveness and side effects. Meanwhile, Co-trimoxazole (Trimethoprim and sulphamethoxazole) have shown some pediculocidal action. In this paper, Co-trimoxazole was given to patients infested with pediculosis capitis. Prolonged course was needed to free the patients from adult and nymphal stages but not the eggs (nits). The results were discussed. It was concluded that until the discovery of cheap, safe and effective oral drug, topical application of pediculocides as ointment or shampoo is the method of choice.

The relation of acute thrombocytopenic purpura (TP) to the use of drugs was investigated in a case-control study conducted in eastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and the Philadelphia region; 62 cases over the age of 16 years with acute onset and with a rapid recovery were compared with 2,625 hospital controls. After control for confounding by multiple logistic regression, use of the following drugs in the week before the onset of symptoms was significantly associated: trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (relative risk [RR] estimate, 124), quinidine/quinine (101), dipyridamole (14), sulfonylureas (4.8), and salicylates (2.6). The overall annual incidence of acute TP was estimated to be 18 cases per million population. The excess risks for the associated drugs were estimated to be 38 cases per million users of trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole per week, 26 per million for quinidine/quinine, 3.9 per million for dipyridamole, 1.2 per million for sulfonylureas, and 0.4 per million for salicylates. Associations with sulfonamides, quinidine/quinine, sulfonylureas, and salicylates have been previously reported, but the present study has provided the first quantitative measures of the risk. The association with dipyridamole was unexpected. In general, despite large RRs, the incidence rates attributable to the drugs at issue (excess risks) were low, suggesting that TP is not an important consideration in the use of the various drugs.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected children are at risk of a range of lung diseases related to HIV infection, including tuberculosis (TB). As in non-HIV-infected children, the presence of three or more of the following four features strongly suggests the diagnosis of TB: 1) chronic symptoms suggestive of TB; 2) physical changes highly suggestive of TB; 3) a positive tuberculin skin test; 4) a chest radiograph suggestive of TB. Every effort must be made to expedite the process of making the diagnosis, as TB may be rapidly progressive in HIV-infected children. As many children who present with chronic symptoms suggestive of TB may not have been tested for HIV infection, in high HIV prevalence settings (and in all settings where HIV is suspected in a child) children and their families should be offered HIV counselling and testing as part of a full TB work-up. Most current international guidelines recommend that TB in HIV-infected children, as in non-HIV-infected children, should be treated with a 6-month regimen containing rifampicin throughout. All HIV-infected children with advanced immunosuppression, including many with TB, should receive cotrimoxazole prophylaxis. Although the optimal timing for the initiation of antiretroviral treatment (ART) during TB treatment is not known, the decision to initiate ART should take into consideration the degree of immune suppression and the child's progress during TB treatment.

Vibrio cholerae O1 from a 2006 outbreak in Accra were commonly resistant to multiple antimicrobials and, in particular, to trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, drugs commonly used in the treatment of cholera. We sought to determine the genetic basis for trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole resistance in outbreak isolates.

Whipple's disease is considered a rare chronic disease with a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations. Several antibiotics have been used for the treatment of this disease, and the current reference treatment was determined empirically on the basis of only a few clinical observations. Patients should be treated for months, and many relapse after antibiotic withdrawal. We report here the first extensive study on the susceptibilities of three reference strains of Tropheryma whipplei to antibiotic in cell culture by using a real-time PCR assay as previously described. We found that doxycycline, macrolides, ketolides, aminoglygosides, penicillin, rifampin, teicoplanin, chloramphenicol, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole were active, with MICs ranging from 0.25 to 2 microg/ml. Vancomycin was somewhat active at an MIC of 10 microg/ml. We found heterogeneity in the susceptibility to imipenem, with one strain being susceptible and the two other strains being resistant. Cephalosporins, colimycine, aztreonam, and fluoroquinolones were not active. We also demonstrated that a combination of doxycycline and hydroxychloroquine was bactericidal. This combination has been shown to be active in the treatment of patients suffering from chronic infections with Coxiella burnetii, a bacterium that is also found intracellularly in acidic vacuoles. We believe, then, that this combination therapy should be further evaluated in clinical trials for the treatment of Whipple's disease.

Recurrent infection after an episode of otitis media is common in pediatric patients. If a patient experienced primary treatment failure in a preceding episode, physicians often feel pressured to prescribe a broad-spectrum, second-line agent for the next episode rather than a first-line drug. The purpose of our study was to determine whether using a second-line drug resulted in fewer treatment failures in a recurrent otitis episode following an episode of apparent resistance.

A 22-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with fever, cough and dyspnea. His chest radiograph showed diffuse ground-glass attenuation in both lung fields. Arterial blood gas analysis showed hypoxemia (PaO2 28.7 Torr breathing room air) and he required mechanical ventilation within 6 hours after admission. Gomori methenamine silver (GMS) stain of the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid smear showed round and indented organisms, and polymerase chain reaction revealed pneumocystis jirovecii in the BAL fluid. The HIV antibody was positive and peripheral blood CD4-positive lymphocytes decreased to 4.0%. Pneumocystis pneumonia complicated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) was diagnosed. There was no four-fold rise in screen viral titers. We treated him with antibiotics, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, ganciclovir, fos-fluconazole, steroid pulse therapy and sivelestat sodium hydrate. Respiratory failure was relieved within 5 days following treatment. The percentage of neutrophils in the BAL fluid was elevated (44.6%). Neutrophil elastase on admission was increased and improved to the normal range after treatment. Sivelestat sodium hydrate is an anti-neutrophil elastase inhibitor and may be one of the treatment options for acute respiratory failure due to pneumocystis pneumonia in AIDS patients.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected pregnant women are at increased risk of malaria and its complications. In vitro and in vivo data suggest that the HIV protease inhibitors lopinavir/ritonavir may have potent antimalarial activity. We sought to evaluate whether lopinavir/ritonavir-based antiretroviral therapy (ART) reduced the risk of placental malaria.

A quasi-experimental study was performed in 177 patients with a confirmed or probable diagnosis of paracoccidioidomycosis. Treatment was divided into two stages: 1) initial, which was continued until clinical cure was achieved and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate decreased to normal values; 2) complementary, which was continued until serologic cure was achieved. Medians were compared via the Mann-Whitney test, and frequencies were compared via the chi-squared test. The assessment of variables as a function of time was performed using Kaplan-Meier curves and Cox regression. The significance level was established as p≤0.05.

Prophylactic antibiotics are commonly used for prevention of urinary tract infections (UTIs) in children. It was postulated that the organisms and resistance patterns of breakthrough infections would differ with the choice of antimicrobial prophylaxis. This was a retrospective descriptive study of all breakthroughs UTI from 2000 to 2006 in children over 1 month of age discharged from a referral children's hospital in Tehran, Iran on continuous antibiotic prophylaxis for UTIs. Fifty-seven children discharged on prophylaxis had breakthrough UTIs of which 32 (56%) had a previously diagnosed urinary tract anomaly. Escherichia coli was responsible for the majority of infections irrespective of choice of prophylaxis. Thirty-three of 56 breakthrough UTIs (59%) were with organisms that were resistant to the prophylactic antibiotic. There was an increased incidence of resistance to prophylaxis in children on cefixime (16 of 22; 78%) when compared with children on cephalexin (7 of 19; 37%; p=0.02) and a trend toward increased resistance when compared with children on trimethoprim-sulfamethoxasole (3 of 8; 37%) (p=0.10). In conclusion, the resistance pattern of organisms causing breakthrough UTIs varies with the choice of prophylaxis which should be taken into consideration in chosing empiric therapy for such infections.
