These data demonstrate the continued evolution of and geographical variation in bacterial resistance and highlight the need for appropriate prescribing of antimicrobials in CARTI, using agents with adequate activity, based on local susceptibility profiles and PK/PD parameters.

Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), produced by anaerobic fermentation of mainly indigestible dietary carbohydrates by gut microbiota, have a profound influence on intestinal function and host energy metabolism. Antibiotics may seriously disturb the balance of fecal SCFAs. To evaluate the impacts of antibiotics on fecal SCFAs produced by gut microbiota, a simple, reproducible and accurate gas chromatography (GC) method, which can simultaneously analyze seven SCFAs in fecal samples, was developed and validated. The ranges of detection and quantitation of the SCFAs reached 0.0868 ~ 0.393 and 0.261 ~ 1.18 μg·mL-1 respectively, in an optimized protocol for SCFAs extraction and analysis that used 10 mL 75% ethanol aqueous solution containing 1% HCl, without ultrasonication. The technique exhibited excellent intra-day (relative standard deviation (RSD) ≤ 2.54%) and inter-day (RSD ≤ 4.33%) precisions for all the SCFAs. Later, we administered broad-spectrum antibiotics, cefdinir or azithromycin to rats and analyzed the alterations in fecal SCFAs. The total amount, types and distribution of nearly all fecal SCFAs were significantly altered during the administration and even after withdrawal of the antibiotics in rats. The effects of cefdinir on the SCFAs were more pronounced than those of azithromycin. Our findings suggest SCFAs may serve as sensitive indicators to monitor the influences of antibiotics on SCFAs originated by intestinal bacteria. Our improved SCFAs analysis method is a potential platform for a standard clinical test of the effects of new antibiotics on SCFAs.

A total of 113 patients were enrolled between August 2006 and April 2007, 104 cases of which were performed for bacteriological study. The incidence of bacterial growth was 60.6% (95% CI 51.0-69.4%). The most common bacteria was H. influenzae (25.0%, 95% CI 16.9-35.3%), followed by S. pneumoniae (14.3%, 95% CI 8.2-23.5%) and S. aureus (9.5%, 95% CI 4.7-17.9%), respectively, whilst M. catarrhalis was found only in 2.4% (95% CI 0.5-7.3%). Eight in 12 S. pneumoniae isolates were tested for the minimal inhibitory concentration of penicillin and found to be penicillin resistant strain in five specimens. Beta-lactamase producing H. influenzae was found in eight out of 20 isolates. H. influenzae had a tendency to be sensitive to amoxicillin/clavulanate, cefuroxime, cefpodoxime, azithromycin, clarithromycin, ofloxacin, levofloxacin and gatifloxacin, whilst S. pneumoniae had a tendency to be sensitive to amoxicillin/clavulanate, cefaclor ampicillin/sulbactam, cefuroxime, ofloxacin, levofloxacin, gatifloxacin, cefpodoxime, cefixime and cefdinir. The effectiveness of antibiotics prescription according to the Thai CPG of ABRS and antimicrobial sensitivity were comparable, 88.5% (95% CI 69.8-97.6%) and 82.2% (95% CI 67.9-92%), respectively.
