The occurrence of four classes of 17 commonly used antibiotics (including fluoroquinolones, tetracycline, sulfonamides, and macrolides) was investigated in the sediments of the Yellow River, Hai River and Liao River in northern China by using rapid resolution liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Higher concentrations were detected for most antibiotics in the sediments of the Hai River than in the sediments of the other rivers. Norfloxacin, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin and oxytetracycline in the three rivers were most frequently detected with concentrations up to 5770, 1290, 653 and 652 ng/g, respectively. High frequencies and concentrations of the detected antibiotics were often found in the downstream of large cities and areas influenced by feedlot and fish ponds. Good fitted linear regression equations between antibiotic concentration and sediment physicochemical properties (TOC, texture and pH) were also found, indicating that sediment properties are important factors influencing the distribution of antibiotics in the sediment of rivers.
Guest-host interactions were investigated through a complete physical-chemical characterization and the dissolution profile and microbiological activity were determined.

Yersinia enterocolitica serotype 0:5,27 biotype 2 was isolated from the intestinal contents of a common garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis). The isolate possessed virulence associated phenotypes in all tests conducted. It was susceptible to amikacin, ampicillin/sulbactam, aztreonam, cefoperazone, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, ceftriaxone, cefuroxime, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, imipenem, mezlocillin, norfloxacin, piperacillin, ticarcillin/clavulanic acid, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, tobramycin, chloramphenicol and tetracycline. The isolate harbored the virulence plasmid.
Extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) are an increasing challenge in the treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs), and also in the community. We aimed to investigate the characteristics of patients with UTIs due to ESBL-producing Escherichia coli and to assess the risk factors for ESBLs in community-acquired isolates.

Sixteen Bifidobacterium isolates from the human gastrointestinal tract were assayed for susceptibility to 44 antibiotics by soft agar overlay disc diffusion on TPY agar. Five isolates (3/7 B. bifidum and 2/3 B. breve) exhibited atypical antibiotic susceptibility profiles. Poor growth in the agar overlay accounted for susceptibility of B. bifidum but not B. breve isolates. All other isolates were resistant to cefoxitin (30 micrograms), aztreonam (30 micrograms), vancomycin (30 micrograms), amikacin (30 micrograms), gentamicin (10 micrograms), kanamycin (30 micrograms), streptomycin (10 micrograms), fusidic acid (10 micrograms), trimethoprim (5 micrograms), norfloxacin (10 micrograms), nalidixic acid (30 micrograms), metronidazole (5 micrograms), polymyxin B (300 micrograms) and colistin sulphate (10 micrograms), and they were susceptible to the six penicillins studied, cephalothin (30 micrograms), cefuroxime (30 micrograms), cefaclor (30 micrograms), ceftizoxime (30 micrograms), cefotaxime (30 micrograms), bacitracin (10 micrograms), chloramphenicol (30 micrograms), erythromycin (15 micrograms), clindamycin (2 micrograms), rifampicin (5 micrograms) and nitrofurantoin (300 micrograms). In addition, they varied in their susceptibility to cephradine (30 micrograms), cephazolin (30 micrograms), cefoperazone (75 micrograms), ceftriaxone (30 micrograms), ofloxacin (5 micrograms) and furazolidone (15 micrograms). They were resistant, or only marginally moderately susceptible, to ceftazidime (30 micrograms), netilmicin (10 micrograms), sulphamethoxazole (100 micrograms), cotrimoxazole (25 micrograms) and ciprofloxacin (5 micrograms), and susceptible or marginally moderately susceptible to tetracycline (30 micrograms). All B. bifidum isolates were susceptible to cefixime (5 micrograms). Four microorganism-drug combinations were evaluated for beta-lactamase activity but its absence suggested that cell wall impermeability was responsible for cephalosporin resistance among bifidobacteria. The antibiotic susceptibility of B. animalis 25527T was similar to that of the human isolates.

The influence of faeces on the activity of 9 antibiotics currently used for selective decontamination of the digestive tract was studied. These in vitro findings showed that the antimicrobial activity is differently affected by the presence and concentration of faeces. Great differences in loss of activity were observed on different microorganisms. Decontaminating drugs which were found to be minimally inactivated in vitro by the presence of faeces are proven to be superior in clinical studies too.
With the rise in antibiotic resistance amongst pathogenic bacteria, the study of antibiotic activity and transport across cell membranes is gaining widespread importance. We present a novel, label-free microfluidic assay that quantifies the permeability coefficient of a broad spectrum fluoroquinolone antibiotic, norfloxacin, across lipid membranes using the UV autofluorescence of the drug. We use giant lipid vesicles as highly controlled model systems to study the diffusion through lipid membranes. Our technique directly determines the permeability coefficient without requiring the measurement of the partition coefficient of the antibiotic.

It has been evaluated the effect of norfloxacin, ofloxacin, levofloxacin, fleroxacin and lomefloxacin of the respiratory burst of human polymorphonuclear leukocytes and their intracellular activity against Staphylococcus aureus. None of these agents significantly affected the superoxide and hydrogen peroxide radicals production by the polymorphonuclear leukocytes. All the quinolones except norfloxacin showed significant intracellular activity against S. aureus.

Thirteen strains of P. mallei were found to be highly sensitive to ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin and resistant to norfloxacin. Ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin showed a high efficacy on models of malleus in guinea pigs and hamsters. The animals were infected with various strains of P. mallei. In the in vitro experiments, ciprofloxacin proved to be the most active and efficient. Norfloxacin appeared to be inefficient.

Room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) are emerging as a new class of 'green' solvents for use in a wide range of chemical processes. RTILs can sensitize or quench fluorescence of organic chemicals and their interactions still remain unclear, especially for weakly fluorescent chemicals. Herein, we report the effects of six RTILs on the fluorescence behavior of bisphenol A (BPA). The fluorescence intensities (FIs) of BPA in a RTIL-acetonitrile system were significantly quenched compared to acetonitrile. The quenching effect was stronger for [CnMIM]BF4 than [CnMIM]PF6. A decreasing trend of fluorescence lifetime (FL) of BPA was observed for [C6MIM]PF6 (4.26 to 3.86 ns) and [C14MIM]PF6 (4.15 to 3.78 ns) with increasing RTIL concentrations in the range of 1-10 mM. The quenching mode was consistent with a static quenching mechanism based on the consistency of FL and FI results. The emission bands of BPA and RTILs did not interfere with each other when RTILs were used as the solvent. The investigated RTILs enhanced the FIs of strongly fluorescing chemicals (12.0 ~ 19.0-fold for norfloxacin and 6.1 ~ 8.5-fold for dansyl chloride), but quenched those of weakly fluorescing chemicals (BPA). These results demonstrate that RTILs have different fluorescent effects on organic chemicals with different fluorophores. The interactions between RTILs and BPA result from many factors in addition to viscosity, such as solvent electrostatic dielectric constant, refractive index, density, polarization and molecular interaction. These results provide a theoretical foundation for application of RTILs in the analysis of weakly fluorescing chemical.
