Drug discovery compounds are often isolated as salts of trifluoroacetate from preparative high performance liquid chromatography, which are then used for biological assays in order to assess their efficacy against the biochemical target of interest. It is, therefore, imperative to determine the TFA content in order to ascertain the correct formula weight(More)
The combination of ceftazidime and avibactam possesses potent activity against resistant Gram-negative pathogens, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We compared the efficacies of human simulated doses of ceftazidime and ceftazidime-avibactam using a hollow-fiber system and neutropenic and immunocompetent murine thigh infection models. Twenty-seven clinical(More)
Tissue distribution studies of drug molecules play an essential role in the pharmaceutical industry and are commonly undertaken using quantitative whole body autoradiography (QWBA) methods. The growing need for complementary methods to address some scientific gaps around radiography methods has led to increased use of mass spectrometric imaging (MSI)(More)
OBJECTIVES The combination of aztreonam and avibactam has been proposed for the treatment of infections caused by metallo-β-lactamase-producing Gram-negative organisms, given the stability of aztreonam against metallo-β-lactamases plus the broad coverage of avibactam against AmpC β-lactamases and ESBLs. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of the(More)
A capillary electrophoresis (CE) method was developed for the simultaneous analysis of small chitin and chitosan oligosaccharides. For detection purposes, the oligomers were derivatized with 8-aminopyrene-1,3,6-trisulfonic acid (APTS), a well known fluorophore for oligosaccharides analysis. The detection was performed by laser-induced fluorescence (LIF)(More)
Several useful properties of liposome-based formulations of various existing antibacterial drugs have been reported. These properties include lower MICs, improved pharmacokinetics, lower toxicity, selective distribution to infected tissues, and enhanced in vivo efficacy. Here we report in vivo studies of a liposomal formulation of a member of a novel class(More)
Objectives This study evaluated the in vitro pharmacodynamics of combinations of ceftazidime and the non-β-lactam β-lactamase inhibitor, avibactam, against ceftazidime-, piperacillin/tazobactam- and meropenem-multiresistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa by a quantitative time-kill method. Methods MICs of ceftazidime plus 0-16 mg/L avibactam were determined(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE While the molecular pathways of baclofen toxicity are understood, the relationships between baclofen-mediated perturbation of individual target organs and systems involved in cardiovascular regulation are not clear. Our aim was to use an integrative approach to measure multiple cardiovascular-relevant parameters [CV: mean arterial(More)
BACKGROUND Combination therapies have gained momentum in the disease management strategies of various indications. While it is challenging and more time consuming to develop a combined analytical method, the strategy of simultaneous analysis offers significant advantages in terms of efficiency and cost-effectiveness. RESULTS Due to a significant(More)
