Staphylococcus aureus, a major responsible microorganism of osteomyelitis, represents a challenge to treat because of the poor penetration of antibiotics in bone and increasing minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) to glycopeptides. The calcium-deficient apatites (CDA), closer to the biological components found in bone and other calcified tissues, have(More)
The aim of this study was to compare ceftolozane with ceftazidime, piperacillin/tazobactam (TZP) and imipenem in an experimental rabbit model of Pseudomonas aeruginosa pneumonia. Efficacy was assessed following 2 days of treatment by total colony counts in different tissues (lung, spleen and blood culture). Mean ± standard deviation pulmonary bacterial(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the activity of ceftolozane, a novel oxyimino-cephalosporin, in comparison with ceftazidime and piperacillin/tazobactam against a multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain using a murine model of pneumonia. METHODS Quantitative bacteriology, survival, histological examination, myeloperoxidase activity, proinflammatory cytokine(More)
