Empiric outpatient therapy with trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole , cephalexin, or clindamycin for cellulitis. Limited data exist on optimal empiric oral antibiotic treatment for outpatients with cellulitis in areas with a high prevalence of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA infections. We conducted a 3-year retrospective cohort study of outpatients with cellulitis empirically treated at a teaching clinic of a tertiary-care medical center in Hawaii. Patients who received more than 1 oral antibiotic, were hospitalized, or had no follow-up information were excluded.
Treatment success rates for empiric therapy were compared among commonly prescribed antibiotics in our clinic: Risk factors for treatment failure were evaluated using multivariate logistic regression analysis. Of patients with cellulitis, met the inclusion criteria.

The removal of inorganic fraction reduced SMX sorption by low-temperature biochars e. Degradation of the pharmaceuticals diclofenac and sulfamethoxazole and their transformation products under controlled environmental conditions. Contamination of the aquatic environment by pharmaceuticals via urban effluents is well known. Several classes of drugs have been identified in waterways surrounding these effluents in the last 15 years.
To better understand the fate of pharmaceuticals in ecosystems, degradation processes need to be investigated and transformation products must be identified. Thus, this study presents the first comparative study between three different natural environmental conditions: Results indicated that degradation kinetics differed depending on the process and the type of drug and the observed transformation products also differed among these exposure conditions.
In addition, several transformation products were observed and persisted over time while others degraded in turn. For diclofenac, chlorine atoms were lost primarily in the photolysis, while a redox reaction was promoted by biodegradation under aerobic conditions. For sulfamethoxazole , isomerization was favored by photolysis while a redox reaction was also favored by the biodegradation under aerobic conditions. To summarize this study points out the occurrence of different transformation products under variable degradation conditions and demonstrates that specific functional groups are involved in the tested natural attenuation processes.
Given the complexity of environmental. Preemptive warfarin dose reduction after initiation of sulfamethoxazole -trimethoprim or metronidazole. The primary outcome compared the pre-and post-antibiotic International Normalized Ratio INR of patients in the intervention group warfarin dose reduction with those in the control group no intervention. Secondary outcomes assessed incidence of thromboembolic and major bleeding events within 30 days of antibiotic completion. Fifty patients were assessed. Forty-nine patients had at least one follow-up appointment; follow-up visits were evaluated.
There were no statistically significant differences for the overall rate of therapeutic INR values between groups, as well as no instances of a thromboembolic or major bleeding events during the follow-up period. Clinically significant differences were observed for patients who received a preemptive warfarin dose reduction upon initiation of sulfamethoxazole -trimethoprim or metronidazole. Patients in the intervention group required fewer follow-up appointments and were more likely maintain a therapeutic INR within the 30 days following the antibiotic course.
Results of this study will be presented the at Pharmacy and Therapeutics committee in an effort to seek approval for policy development to initiate a local preemptive warfarin dose adjustment as a standard.

Fast simultaneous determination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole by capillary zone electrophoresis with capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection. The association of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole is a very effective with antibiotic properties, and commonly used in the treatment of a variety of infections. Due to the importance in diseases treatment of humans and also of animals, the development of methods for their quantification in commercial formulations is highly desirable. In the present study, a rapid method for simultaneous determination of these compounds using CE with capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection was developed.
A favorable working region for both analytes was from Other parameters calculated were sensitivity 1. Under this condition, the total run time was only 2. The proposed method was applied to the determination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole in commercial samples and the results were compared to those obtained by using a HPLC pharmacopoeia method. This new method is advantageous for quality-control analyses of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole in pharmaceuticals samples, because it is rapid and precise.

Degradation and toxicity assessment of sulfamethoxazole and chlortetracycline using electron beam, ozone and UV. Recently, the occurrence of antibiotics in sewage treatment plant effluent, as well as drinking water, has raised concern about their potential impacts on the environment and public health.
Antibiotics are found in surface and ground waters, which indicate their ineffective removal by conventional wastewater treatment processes. Therefore, advanced oxidation processes AOPs have received considerable attention for the removal of antibiotics. This study was conducted to evaluate the degradation and mineralization of antibiotics sulfamethoxazole and chlortetracycline using an electron beam, ozone and UV, and the change of toxicity. The results showed that an electron beam effective for the removals of both sulfamethoxazole and chlortetracycline in aqueous solutions.
However, degradation of the target compounds by ozone and UV showed different trends. The oxidation efficiency of each organic compound was very dependent upon the AOP used. Algal toxicity was significantly reduced after each treatment. However, based on the electrical energy, the electron beam was more efficient than ozone and UV. Electron beam treatment could be an effective and safe method for the removal of antibiotic compounds.
Occurrence of the antibiotic sulfamethoxazole SMX in the aquatic environment is of concern due to its potential to induce antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria. While degradation of SMX can occur by numerous processes, the environmental fate of its transformation products TPs remains poorly understood. The resulting mixture of 8 photo-TPs was characterized using a combination of ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled to high-resolution mass spectrometry and tandem mass spectrometry, and then used in biodegradation experiments. Remarkably, TPs previously reported to be photo-stable also were persistent in biodegradation experiments.
This process could contribute to exposure to SMX in the aquatic environment that is higher than one would expect based on the fate of SMX alone. The results highlight the importance of considering TPs along with their parent compounds when characterizing environmental risks of emerging contaminants.

Reduction of clarithromycin and sulfamethoxazole -resistant Enterococcus by pilot-scale solar-driven Fenton oxidation.
The presence of pathogenic antibiotic-resistant bacteria in aquatic environments has become a health threat in the last few years. Their presence has increased due to the presence of antibiotics in wastewater effluents, which are not efficiently removed by conventional wastewater treatments. As a result there is a need to study the possible ways of removal of the mixtures of antibiotics present in wastewater effluents and the antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which may also spread the antibiotic resistance genes to other bacterial populations.

There was a faster complete removal of enterococci and of antibiotics in all aqueous matrices by applying solar Fenton when compared to photolytic treatment of the matrices. The antibiotic resistance of enterococci towards both antibiotics exhibited a 5-log reduction with solar Fenton in real wastewater effluent. Also after solar Fenton treatment, there were 10 times more antibiotic-resistant enterococci in the presence of sulfamethoxazole than in the presence of clarithromycin.
Biodegradation and reversible inhibitory impact of sulfamethoxazole on the utilization of volatile fatty acids during anaerobic treatment of pharmaceutical industry wastewater. This study evaluated the chronic impact and biodegradability of sulfamethoxazole under anaerobic conditions. Conventional parameters, such as COD, VFA, and methane generation, were monitored with corresponding antimicrobial concentrations in the reactor and the methanogenic activity of the sludge.
The adverse long-term impact was quite variable for fermentative bacteria and methanogenic achaea fractions of the microbial community based on changes inflicted on the composition of the residual organic substrate and mRNA expression of the key enzymes. Role of biotransformation, sorption and mineralization of 14 C-labelled sulfamethoxazole under different redox conditions.
The 14 C-radiolabelled residues distribution in the solid, liquid and gas phases was closely monitored along a total incubation time of h. In fact, an influence of the type of primary substrate and the redox potential was observed in all cases on the biotransformation and mineralization rates, since an enhancement of the removal rate was observed when an external carbon source was used as a primary substrate under aerobic conditions, while a negligible effect was observed under nitrifying conditions. In the liquid phases collected from all assays, up to three additional peaks corresponding to 14 C-radiolabelled residues were detected.
One of the metabolites detected under anoxic and anaerobic conditions, is probably resulting from ring cleavage of the isoxazole ring. Enhanced sulfamethoxazole degradation through ammonia oxidizing bacteria co-metabolism and fate of transformation products. The occurrence of the widely-used antibiotic sulfamethoxazole SFX in wastewaters and surface waters has been reported in a large number of studies. However, the results obtained up-to-date have pointed out disparities in its removal.
Several sets of batch tests were conducted to establish a link between SFX degradation and specific ammonia oxidation rate. A clear link between the degradation of SFX and the nitrification rate was found, resulting in an increased SFX removal at higher specific ammonia oxidation rates. Adsorption characteristics of diclofenac and sulfamethoxazole to graphene oxide in aqueous solution. The adsorptive properties of graphene oxide GO were characterized, and the binding energies of diclofenac DCF and sulfamethoxazole SMX on GO adsorption were predicted using molecular modeling.
Additionally, the effects of sonication on GO adsorption were examined. The results of this study can be used to maximize the adsorption capacities of micropollutants using GO in water treatment processes. Oxidation of sulfamethoxazole SMX by chlorine, ozone and permanganate--a comparative study. Sulfamethoxazole SMX , a typical sulfonamide antibiotic, has been widely detected in secondary wastewater effluents and surface waters.
In this work we investigated the oxidative degradation of SMX by commonly used oxidants of chlorine, ozone and permanganate. Chlorine and ozone were shown to be more effective for the removal of SMX 0. Higher pH enhanced the oxidation of SMX by ozone and permanganate, but decreased the removal by chlorine. Moreover, the ozonation of SMX was significantly influenced by the presence of humic acid HA , which exhibited negligible influence on the oxidation by chlorine and permanganate. It was shown that different oxidants shared some common pathways, such as the cleavage of SN bond, the hydroxylation of the benzene ring, etc.
On the other hand, each of the oxidants also exhibited exclusive degradation mechanisms, leading to the formation of different transformation products TPs. This work may provide useful information for the selection of oxidants in water treatment processes. Aquatic environmental risk assessment for human use of the old antibiotic sulfamethoxazole in Europe. Sulfamethoxazole SMX is an old sulfonamide antibiotic that was launched first in combination with trimethoprim in by F.
Although sales figures for SMX have been declining over the past 20 yr, the compound is still widely used; moreover, many measured environmental concentrations MECs are available from Europe, the United States, Asia, Australia, and Africa. To assess aquatic risks of SMX in Europe, the exposure of European surface waters was predicted based on actual sales figures from IMS Health, incorporating environmental fate data on one side, and based on collated MECs representing more than single measurements in Europe on the other.
Environmental effects were assessed using chronic and subchronic ecotoxicity data for 16 groups of aquatic organisms, from periphyton communities to cyanobacteria, algae, higher plants, various invertebrates, and vertebrates. Predicted no-effect concentrations PNECs were derived using both deterministic and probabilistic methodology.
No risk appears for indirect human exposure to SMX via the environment. Skin and soft tissue infections SSTI affect millions of people globally, which represents a significant burden on ambulatory care and hospital settings. We identified studies, and 15 underwent full text review by 2 reviewers. Impact of concentration and species of sulfamethoxazole and ofloxacin on their adsorption kinetics on sediments.
Antibiotics are used widely in human and veterinary medicine and are ubiquitous in environmental matrices worldwide. The influence of the concentration of antibiotics on adsorption kinetics is still unclear. This study used sulfamethoxazole SMX and ofloxacin OFL as adsorbates to investigate the adsorption kinetics on sediment affected by varying concentrations of antibiotics adsorbable species.
The apparent adsorption rate of SMX was not affected by the initial concentration and the pH values because the hydrophobic interactions were concentration-independent and charge-independent. However, the apparent adsorption rate of OFL significantly slowed down as the initial concentration increased. This study implied that the adsorption kinetics of antibiotics was greatly dominated by the concentration of adsorbable species rather than apparent overall concentration.
Atovaquone versus trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole as Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia prophylaxis following renal transplantation. This is the first evaluation of full-dose atovaquone vs. One hundred and eighty-five RTR were evaluated in this single-center, retrospective analysis. The primary endpoint was the incidence of PCP at 12 months post-transplant. There were no cases of PCP in either group. There were comparable rates of infections from bacterial pathogens and cytomegalovirus, but rates of BK viremia were significantly higher in group I The incidence of leukopenia was similar in both groups.
Higher mean potassium levels were seen in group I at three months post-transplant but were comparable at all other time points. In our experience, atovaquone appears to be effective in preventing PCP post-renal transplant and also demonstrates good tolerability. The Mekong Delta in Vietnam has seen a rapid development and intensification of aquaculture in the last decades, with a corresponding widespread use of antibiotics.
This study provides information on current antibiotic use in freshwater aquaculture, as well as on resulting antibiotic concentrations in the aquatic environment of the Mekong Delta. Two major production steps, fish hatcheries and mature fish cultivation, were surveyed 50 fish farm interviews for antibiotic use.
Different water sources, including surface water, groundwater and piped water water samples were systematically screened for antibiotic residues. To better understand antibiotic fate under tropical conditions, the dissipation behavior of selected antibiotics in the aquatic environment was investigated for the first time in mesocosm experiments.
None of the investigated antibiotics were detected in groundwater and piped water samples. These concentrations were lower than the predicted no effect concentrations PNECs and minimum inhibitory concentrations MICs , suggesting limited antibiotic-related risk to aquatic ecosystems in the monitored systems. The dissipation half-lives of the studied antibiotics ranged from aquatic environment, yet the persistence of these antibiotics is of concern and might lead to chronic exposure of aquatic organisms as well as humans.
Determination and health risk assessment of enrofloxacin, flumequine and sulfamethoxazole in imported Pangasius catfish products in Thailand. The goals of this study were to determine the levels of three antibiotics - enrofloxacin, flumequine and sulfamethoxazole - in Pangasius catfish products imported into Thailand and to assess the health risks from consumption. To extract these antibiotic residues, acetonitrile, methanol and a small amount of formic acid were used as solvents. The results showed that 14 and 3 samples of Pangasius catfish products were contaminated with enrofloxacin and sulfamethoxazole , respectively.
No flumequine residue was found. While the concentration levels of these antibiotics in most contaminated samples were lower than the European Union EU standard, one sample was found to contain sulfamethoxazole at Notably, the concentration levels of enrofloxacin in samples of Pangasius catfish with skin were higher than in non-skin products, suggesting that products with skin might retain more antibiotic residues than non-skin products.
Although the hazard quotient showed that consuming imported Pangasius catfish products, based on the current consumption rate, will not adversely affect consumer health, antibiotic residues in Pangasius catfish products imported into Thailand should be continually monitored. The veterinary-specific data generated in this study support a single breakpoint for testing trimethoprim-sulfamethoxaz The veterinary-specific data generated in this study support a single breakpoint for testing trimethoprim Has the emergence of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus increased trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole use and resistance?: There are an increasing number of indications for trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole use, including skin and soft tissue infections due to community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus CA-MRSA.
Assessing the relationship between rates of use and antibiotic resistance is important for maintaining the expected efficacy of this drug for guideline-recommended conditions. Using interrupted time series analysis, we aimed to determine whether the emergence of CA-MRSA and recommendations of trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole as the preferred therapy were associated with changes in trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole use and susceptibility rates.
The data from all VA Boston Health Care System facilities, including , inpatient admissions, 6,, outpatient clinic visits, and 10, isolates were collected over a year period. Although the overall susceptibility of Escherichia coli and Proteus spp. The changes in susceptibility rates of S.
The CA-MRSA period is associated with a significant increase in use of trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole but not with significant changes in the rates of susceptibilities among clinical isolates. There is also no evidence for selection of organisms with increased resistance to other antimicrobials in relation to increased trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole use. Ferrocene-catalyzed heterogeneous Fenton-like degradation mechanisms and pathways of antibiotics under simulated sunlight: A case study of sulfamethoxazole. Readily-available and efficient catalyst is essential for activating oxidants to produce reactive species for deeply remediating water bodies contaminated by antibiotics.
In this study, Ferrocene Fc was introduced to establish a heterogeneous photo-Fenton system for the degradation of sulfonamide antibiotics, taking sulfamethoxazole as a representative. Results showed that the removal of sulfamethoxazole was effective in Fc-catalyzed photo-Fenton system. Electron spin resonance and radical scavenging experiments verified that there was a photoindued electron transfer process from Fc to H 2 O 2 and dissolved oxygen resulting in the formation of OH that was primarily responsible for the degradation of sulfamethoxazole. The reactions of OH with substructure model compounds of sulfamethoxazole unveiled that aniline moiety was the preferable reaction site of sulfamethoxazole , which was verified by the formation of hydroxylated product and the dimer of sulfamethoxazole in Fc-catalyzed photo-Fenton system.
This heterogeneous photo-Fenton system displayed an effective degradation efficiency even in a complex water matrices, and Fc represented a long-term stability by using the catalyst for multiple cycles. These results demonstrate that Fc-catalyzed photo-Fenton oxidation may be an efficient approach for remediation of wastewater containing antibiotics. Published by Elsevier B.

These concentrations were lower than the predicted no effect concentrations PNECs and minimum inhibitory concentrations MICs, suggesting limited antibiotic-related risk to aquatic ecosystems in the monitored systems. The dissipation half-lives of the studied antibiotics ranged from Phototransformation of sulfamethoxazole under simulated sunlight: Transformation products and their antibacterial activity toward Vibrio fischeri.
Sulfamethoxazole SMX is a bacteriostatic antibiotic ubiquitously found in the aquatic environment. Since conventional biological wastewater treatment is not efficient to remove SMX, photolysis in natural waters can represent an important transformation pathway. It was recently shown that SMX transformation products can retain antibiotic activity. Therefore, it is crucial to better understand photochemical processes occurring in natural water just as the formation of active transformation products TPs.
During long-term SMX photolysis experiments one week , nine TPs were identified by reference standards. Bacterial bioassays confirmed that the mixture retains its antibiotic toxicity toward luminescence 24 h and that there is no change over the treatment time on EC In contrast, growth inhibition activity was found to slightly decrease over the irradiation time.
However, this decrease was not proportional to the transformation of the parent compound SMX. Simultaneous removal of cadmium and sulfamethoxazole from aqueous solution by rice straw biochar. The simultaneous sorption behavior and characteristics of cadmium Cd and sulfamethoxazole SMX on rice straw biochar were investigated.
The calculated maximum adsorption parameter Q of Cd was similar in single and binary systems However,the Q of SMX in a binary system The presence of Cd significantly promoted the sorption of SMX on rice straw biochar. When the pH ranged from 3 to 7. The results of this study indicate that rice straw biochar has the potential for simultaneous removal of Cd and SMX from co-contaminated water.
Dissipation of sulfamethoxazole in pasture soils as affected by soil and environmental factors. The dissipation of sulfamethoxazole SMO antibiotic in three different soils was investigated through laboratory incubation studies. The experiments were conducted under different incubation conditions such as initial chemical concentration, soil depth, temperature, and with sterilisation. During the incubation period for each sampling event the soil dehydrogenase activity DHA and the variation in microbial community were monitored thorough phospholipid fatty acid extraction analysis PLFA.
The PLFA analysis was indicative of higher bacterial presence as compared to fungal community, highlighting the type of microbial community responsible for dissipation. The results indicate that with increasing soil depth, SMO dissipation in soil was slower except for Horotiu while with increase in temperature the antibiotic loss was faster, and was noticeable in all the soils. Both the degree of biological activity and the temperature of the soil influenced overall SMO dissipation. SMO is not likely to persist more than months in all three soils suggesting that natural biodegradation may be sufficient for the removal of these contaminants from the soil.
Its dissipation in sterile soils indicated abiotic factors such as strong sorption onto soil components to play a role in the dissipation of SMO. The dissipation half-lives of the studied antibiotics ranged from antibiotics TRIM was the most persistent in water systems. In summary, the currently measured concentrations of the investigated antibiotics are unlikely to cause immediate risks to the aquatic environment, yet the persistence of these antibiotics is of concern and might lead to. Adsorption of sulfamethoxazole and sulfapyridine antibiotics in high organic content soils.
Many antibiotics, including sulfonamides, are being frequently detected in soil and groundwater. Livestock waste is an important source of antibiotic pollution, and sulfonamides may be present along with organic-rich substances. This study aims to investigate the sorption reaction of two sulfonamides, sulfamethoxazole SMZ and sulfapyridine SPY in two organic-rich sorbents: Batch reactions were conducted to evaluate the impacts of pH 4.
Both linear partitioning and Freundlich sorption isotherms fit the reaction well. The n values of Freundlich isotherm were close to 1 in most conditions suggesting that the hydrophobic partition is the major adsorption mechanism. SPY has a pyridine group that is responsible for adsorption at high pH values, and thus, no significant trend between K d and pH was observed. At high pH ranges, SPY sorption deviated significantly from linear partitioning.
The results suggested the sorption mechanism of these two sulfonamide antibiotics tended to be hydrophobic partitioning under most of the experimental conditions, especially at pH values lower than their corresponding pK a2. The fluorescence excitation emission matrix and dissolved organic carbon leaching test suggested composted manure has higher fulvic acid organics and that peat soil has higher humus-like organics.
Small organic molecules showed stronger affinity toward sulfonamide antibiotics and cause the composted manure to exhibit higher sorption capacity. Overall, this study suggests that the chemical structure and properties of sulfonamides antibiotics and the type of organic matter in soils will greatly influence the fate and transport of these contaminants into the environment. Phototransformation of sulfamethoxazole under simulated sunlight: Pharmacokinetics of mefloquine and its effect on sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim steady-state blood levels in intermittent preventive treatment IPTp of pregnant HIV-infected women in Kenya.
Dried blood spots were collected from both placebo and mefloquine arms four to h post-administration and on day 7 following a second monthly dose of mefloquine. A novel high-performance liquid chromatographic method was developed to simultaneously measure mefloquine, sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim from each blood spot. Although a transient decrease in sulfamethoxazole levels was observed, there was no change in hospital admissions due to secondary bacterial infections, implying that mefloquine may have provided antimicrobial protection.
A Randomized Clinical Trial. Emergency department visits for skin infections in the United States have increased with the emergence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA.
To determine whether cephalexin plus trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole yields a higher clinical cure rate of uncomplicated cellulitis than cephalexin alone. Multicenter, double-blind, randomized superiority trial in 5 US emergency departments among outpatients older than 12 years with cellulitis and no wound, purulent drainage, or abscess enrolled from April through June All participants had soft tissue ultrasound performed at the time of enrollment to exclude abscess.
Final follow-up was August The primary outcome determined a priori in the per-protocol group was clinical cure, defined as absence of these clinical failure criteria at follow-up visits: Median length and width of erythema were In the per-protocol population, clinical cure occurred in Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA can be difficult to detect at the clinical practice. In regions where these SCCmec types are prevalent, the detection of specific resistant phenotypes could help to predict them, mainly when there are no technical conditions to SCCmec typing.
Development of antibacterial conjugates using sulfamethoxazole with monocyclic terpenes: A systematic medicinal chemistry based computational approach. To develop 6 conjugate agents of the moribund antibiotic sulfamethoxazole SMZ joined to 6 individual monoterpenes, followed by protocols of medicinal chemistry as potent antibacterials, against multidrug resistant MDR human gruesome pathogenic bacteria. Antibacterial activities of the proposed conjugates were ascertained by the 'prediction of activity spectra of substances' PASS program.
Antibacterial activities of individual chemicals and conjugates were examined by targeting the bacterial folic acid biosynthesis enzyme, dihydropteroate synthases DHPSs of bacteria, Bacillus anthracis, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, with 3D structures of DHPSs from protein data bank. The current global water crisis in addition to continues contamination of natural water bodies with harmful organic micropollutants OMPs have driven the development of new water treatment technologies that allow the efficient removal of such compounds.
Among a long list of OMPs, antibiotics are considered as top priority pollutants to be treated due to their great resistance to biological treatments and their potential to develop bacterial resistance. Different approaches, such as membrane-based and advance oxidation processes have been proposed to alleviate or minimize antibiotics discharge into aquatic environments.
However most of these processes are costly and generate either matrices with high concentration of OMPs or intermediate products with potentially greater toxicity or persistence. Therefore, this thesis proposes the study of an anaerobic membrane bioreactor AnMBR for the treatment of synthetic municipal wastewater containing sulfamethoxazole SMX , a world widely used antibiotic.
H-point standard additions method for simultaneous determination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim in pharmaceutical formulations and biological fluids with simultaneous addition of two analytes. The applicability of H-point standard additions method HPSAM to the resolving of overlapping spectra corresponding to the sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim is verified by UV-vis spectrophotometry. The results show that the H-point standard additions method with simultaneous addition of both analytes is suitable for the simultaneous determination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim in aqueous media.
The results of applying the H-point standard additions method showed that the two drugs could be determined simultaneously with the concentration ratios of sulfamethoxazole to trimethoprim varying from 1: Also, the limits of detections were 0. The proposed method has been successfully applied to the simultaneous determination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim in some synthetic, pharmaceutical formulation and biological fluid samples. We compared their activities against i non-fermenters, ii multiresistant Enterobacteriaceae and iii reference strains with sul1 and sul2.
Test isolates were recent submissions to the reference laboratory, or were Escherichia coli previously shown to have sul1 or sul2.

Despite supplementing the Burkholderia and S. Antifolate combinations remain the most active antimicrobials against less common non-fermenters, importantly including S. Few industry-independent studies have been conducted to compare the relative costs and benefits of drugs to treat methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA infection. We performed a stochastic cost-effectiveness analysis comparing two treatment strategies-linezolid versus trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole plus rifampicin-for the treatment of MRSA infection.
We used cost and effectiveness data from a previously conducted clinical trial, complementing with other data from published literature, to compare the two regimens from a healthcare system perspective. Effectiveness was expressed in terms of quality-adjusted life-years QALYs. Several sensitivity analyses were performed using Monte Carlo simulation, to measure the effect of potential parameter changes on the base-case model results, including potential differences related to type of infection and drug toxicity.
Treatment with trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole plus rifampicin was found to be more cost-effective than linezolid in the base case and remained dominant over linezolid in most alternative scenarios, including different types of MRSA infection and potential disadvantages in terms of toxicity. Combined treatment of trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole plus rifampicin is more cost-effective than linezolid in the treatment of MRSA infection. Published by Elsevier Ltd.. The adsorption of three pharmaceuticals, namely, acetaminophen, diclofenac, and sulfamethoxazole onto granular activated carbon GAC , was investigated.
To study competitive adsorption, both dynamic and steady-state adsorption experiments were conducted by careful selection of pharmaceuticals with various affinities and molecular size. The effective diffusion coefficient of the adsorbate was increased with decease in particle size of GAC. The adsorption affinity represented as Langmuir was consistent with the ranking of the octanol-water partition coefficient, K ow. The adsorption behavior in binary or tertiary systems could be described by competition adsorption. In the binary system adsorption replacement occurred, under which the adsorbate with the smaller K ow was replaced by the one with larger K ow.

In the liquid phases collected from all assays, up to three additional peaks corresponding to "1"4C-radiolabelled residues were detected. Characterisation of agricultural waste-derived biochars and their sorption potential for sulfamethoxazole in pasture soil: We investigated the effects of feedstock type and pyrolysis temperatures on the sorptive potential of a model pastoral soil amended with biochars for sulfamethoxazole SMO , using laboratory batch sorption studies.
The results indicated that high temperature chars exhibited enhanced adsorptive potential, compared to low temperature chars. Soils amended with green waste GW biochars produced at three different pyrolysis temperatures showed a small increase in SMO sorption with the increases in temperature. These results correlated well with the sorption affinity of each biochar, with effective distribution coefficient K d eff being highest for PSD and lowest for GW biochars. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy results for the biochars showed a relatively large difference in oxygen containing surface functional groups amongst the GW biochars.
However, they exhibited nearly identical sorption affinity to SMO, indicating negligible role of oxygen containing surface functional groups on SMO sorption. Investigating the formation and toxicity of nitrogen transformation products of diclofenac and sulfamethoxazole in wastewater treatment plants. Diclofenac DCF and sulfamethoxazole SMX are highly consumed pharmaceuticals and concentrated in effluents from conventional wastewater treatment plants WWTPs since they are not completely eliminated.
Acute toxicity of analytes to Daphnia magna and Vibrio fischeri was assessed individually and in mixtures with other relevant micropollutants. Individual effects showed these compounds as not harmful and not toxic. However, synergism effects observed in mixtures evidenced that contribution of these compounds to overall toxicity of complex environmental samples, should not be dismissed. Degradation of sulfamethoxazole using ozone and chlorine dioxide - Compound-specific stable isotope analysis, transformation product analysis and mechanistic aspects.
The sulfonamide antibiotic sulfamethoxazole SMX is a widely detected micropollutant in surface and groundwaters. Oxidative treatment with e. Especially for nitrogen containing compounds such as SMX, the related reaction mechanisms are largely unknown. In this study, we systematically investigated reaction stoichiometry, product formation and reaction mechanisms in reactions of SMX with ozone and chlorine dioxide. To this end, the neutral and anionic SMX species, which may occur at typical pH-values of water treatment were studied.
Two moles of chlorine dioxide and approximately three moles of ozone were consumed per mole SMX degraded. Tentatively formulated TP structures from other studies could partly be confirmed by compound-specific stable isotope analysis CSIA. However, for one TP, a hydroxylated SMX, it was not possible by HRMS alone to identify whether hydroxylation occurred at the aromatic ring, as suggested in literature before, or at the anilinic nitrogen.
By means of CSIA and an analytical standard it was possible to identify sulfamethoxazole hydroxylamine unequivocally as one of the TPs of the reaction of SMX with ozone as well as with chlorine dioxide. H-abstraction and electron transfer at the anilinic nitrogen are suggested as likely initial reactions of ozone and chlorine dioxide, respectively, leading to its formation.
Oxidation of anionic SMX with ozone did not show any significant isotopic fractionation whereas the other reactions studied resulted in a significant carbon isotope fractionation. Agreement within 1 log2 dilution and minor error rates were Significant interlaboratory variability was observed. E test may not be a reliable method for determining the resistance of pneumococci to trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole. Environmental fate and ecotoxicological risk of the antibiotic sulfamethoxazole across the Katari catchment Bolivian Altiplano: Antibiotics are emergent contaminants that can induce adverse effects in terrestrial and aquatic organisms.
The surface water compartment is of particular concern as it receives direct waste water discharge. Modeling is highlighted as an essential tool to understand the fate and behavior of these compounds and to assess their eco-toxicological risk. Behavior toxicity to Caenorhabditis elegans transferred to the progeny after exposure to sulfamethoxazole at environmentally relevant concentrations.
Sulfamethoxazole SMX is one of the most common detected antibiotics in the environment. In order to study whether SMX can affect behavior and growth and whether these effects could be transferred to the progeny, Caenorhabditis elegans was exposed at environmentally relevant concentrations for 24, 48, 72 and 96 hr, respectively.
After exposure, the exposed parent generation Po was measured for behavior and growth indicators, which were presented as percentage of controls POC. Then their corresponding unexposed progeny F1 was separated and measured for the same indicators. And F1 suffered defects with the lowest POC as Defects in both Po and F1 showed a time- and concentration-dependent fashion and behavior indicators showed better sensitivity than growth indicator.
The observed effects on F1 demonstrated the transferable properties of SMX. Defects of SMX at environmental concentrations suggested that it is necessary to perform further systematical studies on its ecological risk in actual conditions. Fluorescence spectroscopy and electrospray mass spectrometry, ESI-MS, were used to investigate and characterize the inclusion complexation of SMX with cyclodextrins in solutions. The stoichiometries and association constants of these complexes have been determined by monitoring the fluorescence data.
The effect of presence of ternary components like arginine and cysteine on the complexation efficiency of SMX with cyclodextrins was investigated. Molecular Dynamic simulations were also performed to shed an atomistic insight into the complexation mechanism. The results obtained showed that complexes of SMX with both cyclodextrins are stabilized in aqueous media by strong hydrogen bonding interactions. Antibacterial activity of sulfamethoxazole transformation products TPs: Sulfonamide antibiotics undergo transformation in the aquatic environment through biodegradation, photolysis, or hydrolysis.
In this study, the residual antibacterial activity of 11 transformation products TPs of sulfamethoxazole SMX was investigated with regard to their in vitro growth and luminescence inhibition on Vibrio fischeri 30 min and 24 h exposure. Two transformation products, 4-hydroxy-SMX and N 4 -hydroxy-acetyl-SMX, were synthesized in-house and confirmed by nuclear magnetic resonance and high-resolution mass spectrometry. Results of individual compound experiments showed that TPs modified at the para amino group still exhibit clear antibacterial effects, whereas TPs resulting from breakdown of the SMX structure lost this mechanism of action.
The effect of a mixture of para-modified TPs was observed to be additive. Considering the homologous series of sulfa drugs widely prescribed and their common mechanism of action, the potential environmental impact must consider the total amount of sulfonamide antibiotics and their derivative TPs, which might end up in a water body.
Extrapolating the results obtained here for the para TPs of SMX to other sulfa drugs and determining the persistence and occurrence of these compounds in the aquatic environment is required for improved risk assessment. Spectroscopic and DFT study of solvent effects on the electronic absorption spectra of sulfamethoxazole in neat and binary solvent mixtures. Multiple lineal regression analysis indicates that both specific hydrogen-bond interaction and non specific dipolar interaction play an important role in the position of the absorption maxima in neat solvents.
The simulated absorption spectra using TD-DFT methods were in good agreement with the experimental ones. Index of preferential solvation was calculated as a function of solvent composition and non-ideal characteristics are observed in all binary mixtures. Synergistic effect is observed in the case of ACN-H2O and MeOH-H2O, indicating that at certain concentrations solvents interact to form association complexes, which should be more polar than the individual solvents of the mixture. Extraction mechanism of sulfamethoxazole in water samples using aqueous two-phase systems of poly propylene glycol and salt.
Under the optimum conditions, most of SMX was partitioning into the polymer-rich phase with the average extraction efficiency of This extraction technique has been successfully applied to the analysis of SMX in real water samples with the recoveries of Development and validation of an HPLC method for simultaneous determination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole in human plasma.
The combination of trimethoprim TMP and sulfamethoxazole SMX is used in the treatment of many common infections such as urinary, respiratory and gastrointestinal tract infections. Separation of the compounds was achieved on a reverse-phase C8 column packed with 5 microm dimethyl octadecylsilyl bonded amorphous silica 4.
The mobile phase was delivered at a flow rate of 1 mL min- and the effluent was monitored using Max plot technique at 25 derees C. Virgin coconut oil protects against liver damage in albino rats challenged with the anti-folate combination, trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole. However, its use is associated with toxic reactions. Virgin coconut oil VCO , derived from coconut, has been widely used throughout history for its medicinal value.
Twenty rats were divided into four groups. Blood samples were collected from all groups on the 8th day of the experiment for measurement of serum biochemical parameters. Organ weights and coefficients were also evaluated. No Pay No Jay — best investigative wine story This is certainly one of our favourite restaurants in the area as it offers very good food at great value.
For first course I chose the seasonal interpretation of oeufs en meurette — poached eggs on a base of sliced ceps with a rich red wine and shallot sauce. It now features on the menus of top restaurants in this part of the Loire. To finish I chose the raspberry clafoutis, made with raspberries from the restaurant's garden, accompanied by a raspberry sorbet. The raspberries were nicely sharp and refreshing. Raspberry clafoutis foto CRM. This is a blend of old vines from various parcels and Choisilles is the local name for black flint.
Being had good weight and went well with the oeufs en meurette — better than our red — the Les Quartiers, Bourgueil from Yannick Amirault, which clashed a little with the sweetness of the shallots. Estelle and Nicolas Petit's restaurant is highly recommended! Posted by Jim Budd at Newer Post Older Post Home.
