In-vitro activity of carbenicillin and results of treatment of infections due to Pseudomonas with carbenicillin singly and in combination with gentamicin.
TLDR
The moderate in-vitro susceptibility of strains of P. aeruginosa is confirmed and there still remains a need for an anti-Pseudomonas chemotherapeutic agent of greater effectiveness and lower toxicity.
Beta-lactams and Beta-lactamase-inhibitors in current- or potential-clinical practice: A comprehensive update
TLDR
This review provides the comprehensive accounts of the developments in penicillins, cephalosporins, carbapenems, and β-lactamase-inhibitors, and the insight about medicinal chemistry, mechanism(s) of action and resistance, potential strategies to overcome resistance due to β- lactamases, and also the recent advancements in the development of newer β-Lactam compounds; some of which are still under trials and yet to be classified.
Azlocillin und Mezlocillin: Zwei neue semisynthetische Acylureidopenicilline
TLDR
The pharmacokinetic parameters of two new ureido-penicillins (azlocillin and mezlocillin) were determined in 12 healthy subjects after a half-hour continuous infusion of 5,000 mg of Bacillus subtilis ATCC 6633.
Development of potent antipseudomonal β‐lactams by means of polycarboxylation of aminopenicillins
TLDR
Data suggest that polycarboxylation by DTPA conjugation is an effective approach to enhance antipseudomonal activity of aminopenicillins.
Fungal Bioactive Compounds in Pharmaceutical Research and Development
TLDR
Fungi bioactive compounds are alive and well for development into new drugs as novel ecological groups of fungi as well as novel chemistries are being uncovered.
Functional Characterization of Bacteria Isolated from Ancient Arctic Soil Exposes Diverse Resistance Mechanisms to Modern Antibiotics
TLDR
It is found that resistance genes found in permafrost bacteria conferred lower levels of resistance against clinically relevant antibiotics than resistance genes sampled from the active layer, demonstrating that antibiotic resistance genes were functionally diverse prior to the anthropogenic use of antibiotics.
Childhood Leukemias: History of leukemia: historical perspectives
TLDR
Improved event-free survival with intensified anthracycline treatment in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and with “augmented” postinduction intensification in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) suggests that the limits of indiscriminate intensification of therapy have been reached.
Historical perspective Forty years of lactam research
TLDR
The author’s personal account of some of the studies in the -lactam field in which he has been involved and the basis for studies of a more fundamental nature in cell biology and antibacterial chemotherapy.
Studies on some unusual characteristics expressed by Pseudomonas aeruginosa associated with chronic respiratory infections.
TLDR
The spotting method provides greater discrimination through the recognition of S-pyocin production, and confirmed that in most cases, the phenotypic heterogeneity of P. aeruginosa isoiates from CF patients emerged in vivo.
