The SCCmec types predominating in bovine MRNAS differ from those mostly detected in livestock-associated methicillin-resistant S. aureus strains. Yet, the detection of cfr and the high level of other antimicrobial resistances suggest a potentially important role of bovine MRNAS as a reservoir for resistance determinants other than SCCmec.

In addition to shedding new light on the biology of Planctomycetes organisms, these data could be used for the further phenotypic characterization of Planctomycetes organisms, and for the optimization of culture media for the primary isolation and growth of Planctomycetes organisms from contaminated specimens.
The objectives of this study were to investigate risk factors and the incidence of ciprofloxacin resistance and extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) in patients with acute bacterial prostatitis (ABP). We reviewed the medical records of 307 patients who were diagnosed with ABP between January 2006 and December 2015. The etiologic pathogens and risk factors for ciprofloxacin-resistant E. coli and ESBL-producing microbes, susceptibility to ciprofloxacin, and the incidence of ESBL in patients with ABP were described. History of prior urologic manipulation was an independent risk factor for ciprofloxacin-resistant (P = 0.005) and ESBL-producing microbes (P = 0.005). Advanced age (over 60 years) was an independent risk factor for ciprofloxacin-resistant microbes (P = 0.022). The ciprofloxacin susceptibility for Escherichia coli in groups without prior manipulation was documented 85.7%. For groups with prior manipulation, the susceptibility was 10.0%. Incidence of ESBL-producing microbes by pathogen was 3.8% for E. coli and 1.0% for Klebsiella pneumonia in the absence of manipulation group, and 20% and 33.3% in the presence of manipulation group, respectively. Initial treatment of ABP must consider patient's age and the possibility of prior manipulation to optimize patient treatment. With the high rate of resistance to fluoroquinolone, cephalosporins with amikacin, or carbapenems, or extended-spectrum penicillin with beta lactamase inhibitor should be considered as the preferred empirical ABP treatment in the patients with history of prior urologic manipulation.

Background. Fluoroquinolone-resistant infections after transrectal prostate biopsy (TRPB) are increasing. Methods. Members of the Emerging Infections Network, a consortium of adult infectious diseases physicians sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Infectious Diseases Society of America, were administered an electronic 9-question survey regarding post-TRPB infections and associated prophylaxis. Results were compared with respondent characteristics. Results. The overall response rate was 47% (552 of 1180). Of the 552 respondents, 234 (42%) reported that this problem was not applicable to their practice. The remaining 318 (58%) reported that, despite widespread recent changes in prophylactic regimens, fluoroquinolone monotherapy still was most common, but diverse alternate or supplemental oral and parenteral antibiotics (including imipenem) also were used. Reports of culture-guided prophylaxis were rare (9%). The most common duration of prophylaxis was a single prebiopsy antibiotic dose. However, 16%-23% of respondents reported prophylaxis continuing for ≥24 hours postbiopsy. Post-TRPB infections were reported as being more frequent now than 4 years ago, with sepsis and genitourinary presentations predominating, but with osteomyelitis, endocarditis, and epidural abscess also occurring. Infection isolates reportedly were usually resistant to the prophylactic regimen. Conclusions. Emerging Infections Network members perceive post-TRPB infections as increasingly frequent, caused by resistant strains, and involving serious illness. Prophylactic approaches, although in flux, still usually entail ciprofloxacin monotherapy, which often is given for excessive durations. Multiple opportunities exist for infectious diseases specialists to partner with proceduralists in devising, studying, and implementing improved prophylaxis regimens for TRPB.

Antibiotics are entering the aquatic environment of countries like India through hospital effluent. In-depth studies are needed to establish the correlation, if any, between the quantities of antibiotics prescribed in hospitals and the levels of antibiotic residues found in hospital effluent. Further, the effect of this on the development of bacterial resistance in the environment and its subsequent public health impact need thorough assessment.

A potential relationship between postoperative urinary tract infection (UTI) and surgical site infection (SSI) following posterior spinal fusion and instrumentation (PSFI) was investigated. A retrospective review was performed of prospectively collected demographic, clinical and microbiological data of 466 consecutive patients (median age, 53.7 years (interquartile range (IQR) 33.8-65.6); 58.6% women) undergoing PSFI to identify those with UTI in the first 4 weeks and SSI in the first 12 weeks after PSFI. Overall, 40.8% had an American Society of Anesthesiologists score of >2, and 49.8% had undergone fusion of more than three segments. Eighty-nine patients had UTI, 54 had SSI, and 22 had both conditions. In nine of the 22 (38%) cases, the two infections were caused by the same microorganism. The urinary tract was the probable source of SSI by Gram-negative bacteria in 38% (8/21) of cases. On multivariate analysis, UTI (OR 3.1, 95% CI 1.6-6.1; P 0.001) and instrumentation of more than three segments (OR 2.7, 95% CI 1.1-6.3; P 0.024) were statistically associated with SSI. Patients receiving ciprofloxacin for UTI had higher microbial resistance rates to fluoroquinolones at SSIs (46.13%) than those without ciprofloxacin (21.9%), although the difference did not reach statistical significance (p 0.1). In our series, UTI was significantly associated with SSI after PSFI. On the basis of our results, we conclude that further efforts to reduce the incidence of postoperative UTI and provide adequate empirical antibiotic therapy that avoids quinolones whenever possible may help to reduce SSI rates and potential microbial resistance.

Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) causes a devastating morbidity and mortality in adults and children. Even in patients presenting at an early stage of disease, deterioration may occur despite apparently adequate therapy. The literature relating to cerebrospinal fluid penetration of antituberculosis agents is reviewed. Amongst the essential antituberculosis agents isoniazid has the best CSF pharmacokinetics reaching peak concentrations (C(max)) only slightly less than in blood. Pyrazinamide also has good CSF penetration and in children receiving dosages of 40 mg/kg the CSF C(max) exceeds the proposed minimal inhibitory concentration of 20 μg/ml. Streptomycin other aminoglycosides and ethambutol have poor CSF penetration and cannot be agents of first choice for TBM treatment. Rifampicin at dosages used in adults seldom reaches CSF concentrations exceeding MIC, but does so more frequently in children when dosages of up to 20 mg/kg are used. The non-essential agents ethionamide, the fluoroquinolones, with the exception of ciprofloxacin, and cycloserine (terizadone) have relatively good CSF penetration and are recommended for TBM treatment. The dosages of the essential agents recommended for the treatment of TBM in children are INH 10 mg/kg (range 6-15 mg/kg bodyweight), rifampicin 15 mg/kg (range 10-20 mg/kg), pyrazinamide 35 mg/kg (range 30-40 mg/kg), ethambutol 20 mg/kg (range 15-25 mg/kg) and streptomycin 15 mg/kg (range 12-18 mg/kg). Amongst second-line agents ofloxacin, levofloxacin and moxifloxacin should be used in dosages of 15-20 mg/kg, ethionamide 20 mg/kg in a single dose, if tolerated, and for cycloserine (terizadone) 15 mg/kg. Antituberculous chemotherapy should be started as soon as the diagnosis of TBM is considered.

Greater susceptibility to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX; 80% vs. 71%), cefazolin (97% vs. 87%), and ciprofloxacin (89% vs. 73%) was found in our population than was published in the hospital antibiogram. These differences were shown to be statistically significant using Fisher's exact test (p < 0.05). A very high sensitivity to nitrofurantoin (99%), similar to the hospital antibiogram (98%), was also found. Also noted was a high rate of antimicrobial susceptibility when specific empiric treatment was initiated with TMP-SMX or ciprofloxacin: 92 and 89%, respectively.

Sixteen livestock in the village died between 24 June and 7 August 2011. Smears from five animals showed Gram-positive, spore bearing characteristics of Bacillus anthracis. Villagers butchered and skinned the dead animals, sold the skin, and consumed the meat after boiling it for two hours. The outbreak in humans started on 30 July, and nine suspected cases of cutaneous anthrax (attack rate: 2%, no deaths) occurred until 7 August. The attack rate was higher among those aged ≥15 years. All the smears were negative on Gram staining. Individuals, who had handled, skinned, and slaughtered dead livestock were at higher risk of infection.
A high rate of resistance was seen against ciprofloxacin (93.7%), aztreonam (86.8%), piperacillin (85.4%), ceftazidime (82.6%), amikacin (82%) and imipenem (79.2%). In total, 93.1% of the isolates were characterized as MDRPA. Biofilm formation was seen in 92.4% of the isolates. The prevalence of the exoA and nan1 genes were 75% and 11.8% among the isolates, respectively.
