UNLABELLED Linezolid is an oxazolidinone with potent activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Linezolid toxicity in patients correlates with the dose and duration of therapy. These toxicities are attributable to the inhibition of mitochondrial protein synthesis. Clinically relevant linezolid regimens were simulated in the in vitro hollow-fiber infection(More)
A recent report found that generic parenteral vancomycin products may not have in vivo efficacies equivalent to those of the innovator in a neutropenic murine thigh infection model despite having similar in vitro microbiological activities and murine serum pharmacokinetics. We compared the in vitro and in vivo activities of six of the parenteral vancomycin(More)
BACKGROUND Killing of bacterial pathogens by granulocytes is a saturable process, as previously demonstrated. There is virtually no quantitative information about how granulocytes interact with antimicrobial chemotherapy to kill bacterial cells. METHODS We performed a dose-ranging study with the aminoglycoside plazomicin against Pseudomonas aeruginosa(More)
Direct acting antiviral agents (DAAs) are potent inhibitors of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) that have revolutionized the treatment landscape for this important viral disease. There are currently four classes of DAAs that inhibit HCV replication via distinct mechanisms of action: nonstructural protein (NS) 3/4a protease inhibitors, NS5A inhibitors, NS5B(More)
Zika virus (ZIKV) is a major public health concern due to its overwhelming spread into the Americas. Currently, there are neither licensed vaccines nor antiviral therapies available for the treatment of ZIKV. We aimed to identify and rationally optimize effective therapeutic regimens for ZIKV by evaluating the antiviral potentials of the approved(More)
Our objective was to identify drug interactions between ledipasvir (LDV) and sofosbuvir (SOF) against a genotype 1b replicon to determine optimal exposures for each agent that will maximize antiviral activity against susceptible and drug-resistant subpopulations. LDV and SOF were evaluated using a fully factorial experimental design in the BelloCell system.(More)
