Abstract Lincomycin and clindamycin are lincosamide antibiotics used in clinical practice. Both antibiotics are bacteriostatic and inhibit protein synthesis in sensitive bacteria. They may even be bactericidal at the higher concentrations that can be reached in vivo . Clindamycin is usually more active than lincomycin in the treatment of bacterial infections, in particular those caused by anaerobic species; and it can also be used for the treatment of important protozoal diseases, e.g. malaria… Expand
Update on clindamycin in the management of bacterial, fungal and protozoal infections
  • D. Guay
  • Medicine
  • Expert opinion on pharmacotherapy
  • 2007
TLDR
With the emergence and spread of infections due to community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococci, it is hoped that the issues of resistance can be mitigated and the use of clindamycin extended for at least the foreseeable future. Expand
Mutasynthesis of Lincomycin Derivatives with Activity against Drug-Resistant Staphylococci
TLDR
Results of complementation experiments proved the blockage in the biosynthesis of lincomycin precursor 4-propyl-l-proline to be blocked, and this mutant strain was found to be more active than lincomYcin against clinical Staphylococcus isolates with genes determining low-level lincosamide resistance. Expand
Structural insights of lincosamides targeting the ribosome of Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
The crystal structures of the large ribosomal subunit of S. aureus in complex with the lincosamides lincomycin and RB02 are presented and biochemical aspects of the in vitro potency of various lincOSamides are discussed to allow better understanding of the drugs selectivity and the importance of the various chemical moieties of the drug for binding and inhibition. Expand
Bacteroides fragilis response to subinhibitory concentrations of antimicrobials includes different morphological, physiological and virulence patterns after in vitro selection.
TLDR
Results show that SICs of AMP, AMS, CLI and CHL may be related to alterations in cell physiology in B. fragilis with implications to the host-bacteria relationship, and the risks of inappropriate chemotherapy and the concerns regarding ecological consequences lead by S ICs of antimicrobials in resident microbiota are emphasized.

Efflux-mediated antimicrobial resistance.

  • 2005
TLDR
Given the clinical significance of multidrug (and drug-specific) exporters, efflux must be considered in formulating strategies/approaches to treating drug-resistant infections, both in the development of new agents less impacted by efflux and in targeting efflux directly with efflux inhibitors.

Antibacterial agents indicated for clinical use are agents that selectively destroy bacteria by interfering with bacterial growth or survival. Among existing antibacterial agents, antibiotics may beExpand
Antibiotic Treatment, Mechanisms for Failure, and Adjunctive Therapies for Infections by Group A Streptococcus
TLDR
This review focuses on the challenges in the treatment of GAS infection, the mechanisms that contribute to antibiotic failure, and adjunctive therapeutics, and how these insights will help guide treatments against other leading pathogens for which conventional antibiotic strategies are increasingly failing. Expand
Antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of Helicobacter suis isolates from pigs and macaques.
TLDR
It is indicated that acquired resistance occasionally occurs in H. suis isolates and that zoonotically important porcine isolates may be intrinsically less susceptible to β-lactam antibiotics and tetracyclines than primate isolates. Expand
Antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of Helicobacter suis isolates from pigs and macaques
Helicobacter suis is a fastidious, Gram negative bacterium that colonizes the stomach of pigs and non-human primates. It has also been associated with gastric disease in humans. A combined agar andExpand
Quantum mechanical studies of lincosamides
TLDR
It is shown that the structure with the intramolecular hydrogen bond C=O…H–O is the most stable conformer of clindamycin, and the charge transfer between the pyrrolidine-derivative ring and the six-atom sugar was found to be the dominant factor influencing the high stability of this conformer.

Macrolides and lincosamides.
TLDR
More recently developed macrolides, such as azithromycin and clarithomycin, are bactericidal, have a larger spectrum of action, a longer endurance, less resistance and may be given once a day instead of two or three times daily. Expand
Resistance of Peptostreptococcus spp. to macrolides and lincosamides: inducible and constitutive phenotypes
TLDR
The activities of erythromycin and clindamycin against 350 Peptostreptococcus strains were studied and evidence of inducible macrolide-lincosamide resistance was shown. Expand
Anti-anaerobic activity of antibacterial agents

  • 2001
TLDR
The resistance rate to metronidazole and imipenem remains low but clindamycin has seen an importance decrease in bacterial susceptibility, and novelties in this field are fluoroquinolones, which exhibit a good activity against Gram-positive cocci and anaerobes. Expand
Bactericidal Activity of the Combinations of Gentamicin with Clindamycin or Chloramphenicol Against Species of Escherichia coli and Bacteroides fragilis
TLDR
Gentamicin was not influenced by clindamycin, but chloramphenicol suppressed the rapid bactericidal activity of gentamicin in seven out of eight strains of E. coli examined. Expand

TLDR
The sequence of the N-terminal amino acid residues of a 63 kDa protein (MsrSA) that appeared in the membrane of PMS-resistant strains was identical to that of an MsrA polypeptide related to enhanced efflux of [14C]EM, and the relationship between PMS resistance and intracellular accumulation of EM was investigated.

Antibiotic sensitivity of ribosomes from wild-type and clindamycin resistant Bacteroides vulgatus strains.
TLDR
The data indicate that resistance in these B. vulgatus mutant strains is due to alteration of the ribosome structure, and modified ribosomes from the resistant strains were more sensitive to other antibiotics like sparsomycin and chloramphenicol. Expand
Inducible expression of ribosomal clindamycin resistance in Bacteroides vulgatus
TLDR
Results show that resistance to clindamycin in B. vulgatus RYC18F6 is an inducible phenomenon involving a ribosomal modification, probably similar to that previously described for gram-positive bacteria. Expand
Effects of clindamycin on derepression of β-lactamases in Gram-negative bacteria
Depression of beta-lactamases in certain non-fastidious Gram-negative bacilli has been responsible for (i) the rapid development of resistance to a variety of beta-lactam antibiotics and (ii)Expand
Effects of clindamycin on derepression of beta-lactamases in gram-negative bacteria.
TLDR
Clindamycin may selectively inhibit synthesis of beta-lactamase under repressor control in some bacteria without affecting synthesis of other proteins or replication, which may provide a new approach for the enhancement of the antibacterial activity of certain beta- lactam antibiotics. Expand

TLDR
The marked synergy of clindamycin combined with either gentamicin or colimycin was demonstrated by following the kinetics of the bactericidal action of the antibiotic combinations and the effects on bacterial protein synthesis. Expand
