Literature review on the distribution characteristics and antimicrobial resistance of bacterial pathogens in neonatal sepsis
Purpose: Neonatal sepsis (NS) has no specific clinical manifestations and blood culture analysis requires a long period of time. Knowledge of prevalent bacterial isolates and their antibiotic susceptibility is crucial when choosing an empirical therapy to decrease morbidity and mortality. This literature review summarizes the distribution characteristics and antimicrobial resistance of bacterial pathogens associated with bloodstream infections in Chinese neonates, and thus serves as a reference for pediatricians. Methods: The full-text journal database, CNKI, was searched using the key words " neonatal " , " sepsis " , and...

Newer class of fluoroquinolone antibiotics may present reduced risk of tendon ruptures
(American Academy of Family Physicians) It's widely understood that people taking a common class of antibiotics, like ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin, run the risk of tendonitis and tendon ruptures. However, a new analysis sheds light on newer, third-generation fluoroquinolones and suggests they may have a lower risk of Achilles tendon rupture. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Coupling antibiotics with stem cells to fight off bone infections
(Kanazawa University) Researchers from Kanazawa University investigated the effects of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) loaded with the antibiotic ciprofloxacin on osteomyelitis caused by implants. By administering ADSC-loaded ciprofloxacin to the site of bone infection in rats, the researchers found a significant improvement of the infection, as shown by reduced soft tissue swelling, abscess formation, and bone degradation. These findings suggest a potential new therapy for implant-related bone infections that have traditionally been difficult to treat with antibiotics.

Test accurately IDs people whose gonorrhea can be cured with simple oral antibiotic
A test designed by UCLA researchers can pinpoint which people with gonorrhea will respond successfully to the inexpensive oral antibiotic ciprofloxacin, which had previously been sidelined over concerns the bacterium that causes the infection was becoming resistant to it.In research published in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Infectious Diseases,a UCLA-led team found thatof106 subjectsthe test identified as having a strain ofgonorrhea called wild-type gyrA serine, all were cured with a single dose of oral ciprofloxacin. Though the test has been available for three years, this is the first time it has been systematicall...
