Activated sludges obtained from the Rilling Road plant located at San Antonio, Tex., and from the Hyperion treatment plant located at Los Angeles, Calif., have the ability to remove all of the orthophosphate normally present in Tucson sewage within 3 hr after being added to the waste water. Phosphorus removal was independent of externally supplied sources(More)
The chromogenic cephalosporin nitrocefin was used to detect the presence of beta-lactamase in cerebrospinal fluid of patients suffering from ampicillin-resistant Haemophilus influenzae meningitis. Five samples of spinal fluid containing ampicillin-resistant isolates were studied, and all had beta-lactamase activity. When samples of spinal fluid containing(More)
Large doses of cephapirin (50 mg/kg) administered during the first and last half hours of routine hemodialysis produced effective antimicrobial serum concentrations for 48 h. Repetitive administration during five successive hemodialysis sessions did not result in accumulation or accelerated metabolism of cephapirin. Ten infectious episodes in nine patients(More)
A total of 319 clinical isolates were compared for amikacin susceptibility by AutoBac I and Bauer-Kirby disk diffusion methods. There was an overall agreement of 98.5% between AutoBac I and Bauer-Kirby. An additional 23 strains resistant to amikacin, obtained from Bristol Laboratories, registered a 65% overall agreement. The sensitivity readings differed(More)
A single 1.0-g dose of cefaclor administered to patients with stable end stage renal disease whose creatinine clearances were <5 ml/min produced a mean peak serum concentration of 48.3 +/- 19.8 mug/ml. The half-life was 2.3 +/- 0.3 h. Hemodialysis shortened the half-life of a similar dose to 1.6 +/- 0.3 h. Approximately one-third (340 mg) of the(More)
The ability of activated sludge to remove phosphates was studied by adding carrier-free (32)P to raw sewage and measuring incorporation of the radioactivity into the cells over a period of time. Radioisotope determinations indicated that 48% of the (32)P radioactivity was removed by 12 hr. However, chemical methods indicated that only 30% of the(More)
The pharmacokinetics of ceforanide were evaluated in 11 patients with end stage renal disease (creatinine clearance less than 5 ml/min). A single intravenous dose of 750 mg/m2 produced peak plasma concentrations of 123 +/- 29 microgram/ml. The plasma half-life (T 1/2) of the drug was 19.1 +/- 2.5 h. A 5.5 h hemodialysis session removed 53% of the drug and(More)
