Avibactam (formerly NXL104, AVE1330A) is a synthetic non-β-lactam, β-lactamase inhibitor that inhibits the activities of Ambler class A and C β-lactamases and some Ambler class D enzymes. This review summarizes the existing data published for ceftazidime-avibactam, including relevant chemistry, mechanisms of action and resistance, microbiology,(More)
OBJECTIVE Despite improvements in the care of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, delayed cerebral vasospasm remains a major cause of morbidity and death. There is now evidence that a decrease in the local availability of nitric oxide (NO) plays a role in delayed cerebral vasospasm. We evaluated a controlled-release polymer containing the NO(More)
Plazomicin (formerly ACHN-490) is a next-generation aminoglycoside that was synthetically derived from sisomicin by appending a hydroxy-aminobutyric acid substituent at position 1 and a hydroxyethyl substituent at position 6'. Plazomicin inhibits bacterial protein synthesis and exhibits dose-dependent bactericidal activity. Plazomicin demonstrates activity(More)
OBJECTIVE In the central nervous system, astroglia produce nitric oxide (NO) in response to cytokines. We investigated whether cytokine stimulation of astroglia could inhibit brain tumor cell growth in vitro and prolong survival in vivo via an NO-dependent pathway. METHODS Astroglia cultures were stimulated with the cytokines lipopolysaccharide and(More)
Previous research (e.g. Cognition 64 (1997) 73) suggests that the privileged level for inductive inference in a folk biological conceptual hierarchy does not correspond to the "basic" level (i.e. the level at which concepts are both informative and distinct). To further explore inductive inference within conceptual hierarchies, we examine relations between(More)
