ABSTRACT

Introducción: La identificación de los principales factores clínico-epidemiológicos que determinan causas de mortalidad en pacientes hospitalizados es una necesidad apremiante, principalmente cuando los esfuerzos realizados en la actualidad no permiten asumir acciones fundamentadas en la identificación de las causas de dicho evento. Objetivo: Establecer cuáles son los factores pronósticos de mortalidad por agente infeccioso en un hospital de alta complejidad de la ciudad de Cartagena- Colombia. Material y Métodos: Se realizó un estudio de casos y controles retrospectivo, con muestra proyectada de 86 casos y 258 controles, en una relación 1:3, que cumplieron con los criterios de elegibilidad respectivos y en los que realizaron análisis bivariados y posteriormente un análisis multivariado que incluyó métodos de regresión logística binaria. Resultados: El riesgo de mortalidad en el análisis multivariado está determinado por variables como sexo masculino (ORa 1,695 IC 95 por ciento: 1,005-2,856); Cáncer (ORa 2,389 IC 95 por ciento 1,230-4,642); inmunosupresión (ORa 3,211 IC 95 por ciento 1,004-10,26); Ventilación mecánica (ORa 2,541 IC 95 por ciento 1,128-5,722); Estancia en la UCI (ORa 2,331 IC 95 por ciento1,227-4,425) e Infección por bacterias productoras de carbapenemasas (ORa 4,778 IC95 por ciento 1,313-17,38). Conclusiones: En pacientes masculinos con cáncer o cualquier otra forma de inmunosupresión, en los que se requiera el uso del ventilador mecánico o estancia en la unidad de cuidado intensivo y que además desarrollen infecciones por bacterias productoras de carbapenemasas existe mayor riesgo de muerte por agente infeccioso(AU)


Introduction: The identification of the main epidemiological clinical factors that determine the causes of mortality in hospitalized patients is a pressing need, mainly when the efforts made at present do not allow us to take actions based on the identification of the causes of the aforementioned event. Objective: To identify the prognostic factors for mortality caused by infectious agents in a high complexity hospital in the city of Cartagena, Colombia. Material and Methods: A retrospective case-control study was conducted in 86 cases and 258 control samples that met the eligibility criteria, at the 1: 3 ratio. Bivariate analyses and a subsequent multivariate analysis that included binary logistic regression methods were also performed. Results: In the multivariate analysis, the risk of mortality is determined by variables such as male sex (ORa 1,695 95 percent CI: 1.005-2.856); cancer (ORa 2,389 95 percent CI 1,230-4,642); immunosuppression (ORa 3.211 95 percent CI 1.004-10.26); mechanical ventilation (ORa 2.541 95 percent CI 1.128-5.722); stay in the ICU (ORa 2,331 95 percent CI 1,227-4,425) and infection caused by carbapenemase-producing bacteria (ORa 4,778 95 percent CI 1,313-17.38). Conclusions: Male patients with cancer or any other form of immunosuppression who require the use of a mechanical ventilator or admission to the intensive care unit who also develop infections caused by carbapenemase-producing bacteria, are at greater risk of death from an infectious agent(AU)

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN La introducción de los antibióticos en el siglo pasado ha sido uno de los ejemplos que brinda la historia de intervenciones médicas que cambiaron drásticamente la esperanza de vida de la población. La época dorada de los antibióticos, cuando la aparición de nuevas moléculas era lo habitual, ha dado paso a otra de sequía, en la que es raro el desarrollo de este grupo farmacológico debido al largo período de tiempo que requieren las investigaciones de nuevos fármacos, su elevado costo y al aumento de las exigencias regulatorias. Este progreso médico ganado en décadas pasadas, está amenazado por el aumento de la resistencia de las bacterias a los antibióticos; constituye un grave riesgo mundial por lo que requiere una mayor atención y la coherencia a nivel internacional, nacional y regional. La resistencia bacteriana tiene un gran impacto microbiológico, terapéutico, económico, epidemiológico y en la salud pública; cuesta dinero, medios de subsistencia, vidas humanas y amenaza con socavar la eficacia de los programas de atención a la salud. La presente revisión bibliográfica propone reflexionar sobre los aspectos más significativos del desarrollo de los antibióticos y su impacto en la sociedad.


ABSTRACT The introduction of antibiotics in the last century has been one of the examples that history provides of medical interventions that drastically changed the life expectancy of the population. The golden age of antibiotics, where the appearance of new molecules was what usual, has given way to another of drought, in which the development of this pharmacological group is rare due to the long period of time required for research into new drugs, their high cost and the increase in regulatory requirements. This medical progress gained in past decades is threatened by the increase in the resistance of bacteria to antibiotics, constituting a serious global risk for which it requires greater attention and coherence at the international, national and regional levels. Bacterial resistance has a great microbiological, therapeutic, economic, epidemiological and public health impact; it costs money, livelihoods, human lives, and threatens to undermine the effectiveness of health care programs. This bibliographic review proposes to reflect on the most significant aspects of the development of antibiotics and their impact on society.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: O diagnóstico da hanseníase possui números significativos que causam preocupação à saúde pública. Os casos de resistência medicamentosa nessa doença se iniciaram em meados dos anos 60 e diante do problema, a Organização Mundial da Saúde instituiu em 1981 a poliquimioterapia, associação dos antibióticos rifampicina, dapsona e clofazimina, tratamento atual de escolha. A resistência aos fármacos na hanseníase é reportada pela literatura, desvelando um obstáculo à sua eliminação. Apresentamos nessa revisão os principais aspectos da resistência medicamentosa no tratamento para hanseníase e seus impactos. Metodologia: Revisão sistemática sobre os aspectos da resistência medicamentosa utilizando a pesquisa exploratória como metodologia de abordagem. Foram pesquisados os termos resistência medicamentosa, hanseníase, recidiva, alterações genéticas e os operadores booleanos "and" e "or" na busca. Resultados e discussão: A dificuldade de tomar a medicação corretamente foi um dos principais fatores que acarretaram resistência do bacilo Mycobacterium leprae aos fármacos. Homens de países norte e sul-americanos e asiáticos foram os mais atingidos por episódios de resistência. A resistência medicamentosa é uma das principais causas de recidivas em hanseníase. O principal fármaco causador de resistência medicamentosa descrito nos trabalhos foi a dapsona (46,6%) e a maioria das alterações genéticas encontradas estão no gene rpoB; 23,2% dos registros relatados foram de resistência secundária aos fármacos e, também, sete casos de resistência múltipla a esses medicamentos. Conclusão: Os principais aspectos da resistência medicamentosa na hanseníase são os equívocos ao ingerir os medicamentos e as alterações genéticas na bactéria. Os impactos causados estão na dificuldade de refazer o tratamento, a possibilidade de nova transmissão e o aparecimento de sintomas mais graves.


Introduction: The diagnosis of leprosy has significant numbers causing public health concern. Reports of drug resistance in this disease begun in the mid-1960s and due to this problem, the World Health Organization instituted a multidrug therapy with rifampicin, dapsone, and clofazimine antibiotic association in 1981, which is currently the first-choice treatment for leprosy. Cases of drug resistance have been reported in literature, revealing an obstacle to the eradication of the disease. This paper has the purpose of presenting the key aspects and impacts of drug resistance in the treatment for leprosy. Methods: Systematic review of the drug resistance aspects using exploratory research as an approach methodology. The authors searched the terms drug resistance, leprosy, recurrence, genetic alterations, and the Boolean operators "and" and "or" between them. Results and discussion: The difficulty in taking the medication correctly was one of the key factors that led to drug resistance for Mycobacterium leprae. Men from North and South American, as well as from Asian countries, were the most affected by episodes of resistance. Drug resistance is one of the main causes of leprosy recurrences. Dapsone was the most frequently identified drug resistance in the studies (46.6%), while most of the genetic alterations were found in the rpoB gene; 23.2% of the cases were from secondary resistance episodes, and seven cases of multiple resistance were reported. Conclusion: The misconceptions when taking the treatment and the Mycobacterium leprae genetic alterations have been described as the key aspects of drugs resistance in leprosy and the impacts caused are the difficulty in redoing the treatment, the possibility of new transmission, and the appearance of more severe symptoms.

Objetivo: Determinar la prevalencia y factores asociados de las Infecciones Nosocomiales en el Servicio de Pediatría y Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Pediátricos del Hospital Vicente Corral Moscoso, Mayo 2018 - Octubre 2019. Métodos: Estudio de tipo transversal y analítico. Se realizó en el Servicio de Pediatría y Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Pediátricos del Hospital Vicente Corral Moscoso. El universo seleccionado fue de 3935 pacientes ingresados durante el periodo de Mayo 2018 a Octubre 2019, la muestra fue de 385 pacientes. Para determinar asociación se utilizó el Chi cuadrado, considerando significativo un valor de p < 0.05 y para medir la intensidad de asociación se calculó la razón de prevalencia con un intervalo de confianza del 95%. Resultados: la prevalencia de infecciones nosocomiales fue del 13.5%. El grupo etario de mayor riesgo fueron los lactantes (2-24 meses) (RP: 2,55, p valor: 0,000). Se determinaron los principales factores asociados: días de hospitalización (>14 días) (RP: 32,01, p valor: 0,000), ingreso a cuidados intensivos (RP: 6,69, p valor: 0,000), uso de catéter venoso central (RP: 11,51, p valor: 0,000), línea arterial (RP: 6,19, p valor: 0,000) y ventilación mecánica (RP: 6,69, p valor: 0,000). Conclusiones: La prevalencia de infecciones nosocomiales fue del 13.5%; se determinó asociación con factores como la edad, lugar y tiempo de internación y uso de dispositivos invasivos.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUÇÃO: A prevalência da desnutrição infantil vem diminuindo em todo o mundo, mas ainda acomete milhões de crianças, especialmente indígenas. Devido ao elevado número de doenças infecciosas associadas à desnutrição, a antibioticoterapia faz parte da terapêutica recomendada. OBJETIVO: Observar os casos de desnutrição entre crianças indígenas e não indígenas hospitalizadas e a terapêutica empregada durante o tratamento. MÉTODOS: Estudo de coorte retrospectivo, farmacoepidemiológico, realizado com informações extraídas de prontuários arquivados do período de janeiro de 2012 a dezembro de 2014 de um hospital público. RESULTADOS: Participaram 166 crianças, sendo o número de crianças indígenas aproximadamente seis vezes maior do que não indígenas. Houve maior prevalência entre lactentes e crianças com idade inferior a um ano apresentaram mais chances de serem internadas por desnutrição. Os diagnósticos de desnutrição mais vistos foram os inespecíficos, com uma proporção significativa de óbitos relacionados ao diagnóstico E43. As infecções mais comuns foram do sistema digestório e respiratório. Crianças indígenas tiveram quase cinco vezes mais chances de apresentarem infecção respiratória. A maior proporção recebeu até três antibióticos, havendo crianças que receberam mais que sete antibióticos diferentes durante o período de internação. CONCLUSÃO: A população infantil deve ser acompanhada por meio de inquéritos que possam subsidiar políticas de saúde que atendam suas necessidades. É necessária a capacitação dos profissionais envolvidos no cuidado da criança desnutrida, recursos materiais e financeiros, a fim diminuir o número de diagnósticos inespecíficos e evitar o uso indiscriminado de antibióticos, sendo imprescindível uma política de controle efetiva no uso da politerapia antimicrobiana.


INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of child malnutrition is declining worldwide, but still affects millions of children, especially indigenous people. Due to the high number of infectious diseases associated with malnutrition, antibiotic therapy is part of the recommended therapy. OBJECTIVE: To observe the cases of malnutrition among hospitalized indigenous and non-indigenous children and the therapy used during treatment. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study, pharmacoepidemiological, carried out with information extracted from medical records filed from January 2012 to December 2014 of a public hospital. RESULTS: 166 children participated, with the number of indigenous children being approximately six times higher than that of nonindigenous children. There was a higher prevalence among infants and children under one year of age who were more likely to be hospitalized for malnutrition. The most frequent diagnoses of malnutrition were nonspecific, with a significant proportion of deaths related to diagnosis E43. The most common infections were of the digestive and respiratory system. Indigenous children were almost five times more likely to have respiratory infection. The highest proportion received up to three antibiotics, with children receiving more than seven different antibiotics during the hospitalization period. CONCLUSION: The child population must be accompanied by surveys that can subsidize health policies that meet their needs. It is necessary to train the professionals involved in the care of malnourished children, material and financial resources, in order to reduce the number of non-specific diagnoses and to avoid the indiscriminate use of antibiotics, a policy of effective control in the use of antimicrobial polytherapy is essential.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Introducción: El método de difusión de doble disco se presenta como una alternativa diagnóstica que permite identificar aislados de Staphylococcus aureus susceptibles a clindamicina, ante el aumento de resistencia a meticilina, reduciendo así la posibilidad de fallo en el tratamiento. Objetivo: Determinar la frecuencia de resistencia a clindamicina inducida por eritromicina en S. aureus resistentes a meticilina (SARM) aislados de niños paraguayos. Materiales y Métodos: Estudio observacional, descriptivo, de corte transversal. Se colectaron 145 aislados S. aureus que causaron infecciones de piel y tejidos blandos y osteo-articulares en pacientes pediátricos del Hospital Central del Instituto de Previsión Social en el período de diciembre-2012 a noviembre-2013. La resistencia a clindamicina se determinó por métodos automatizados y de difusión de doble disco. Se realizó reacción de polimerasa en cadena para genes ermA, ermB, ermC y msrA de aislados representativos. Resultados: La resistencia global a meticilina y clindamicina fue de 67 y 13%, respectivamente (11% atribuible al mecanismo de resistencia a clindamicina inducible). Los genes ermC y msrA fueron detectados individualmente en 25 y 17% de los aislados, respectivamente, mientras que un aislado presentó ambos genes en simultáneo. Discusión: La frecuencia de mecanismo de resistencia inducible a clindamicina señala la importancia de los métodos de difusión de doble disco en la práctica microbiológica, así como se encuentran en los límites de puntos de cortes considerados como aceptables para el uso de este antimicrobiano para infecciones cutáneas y osteo-articulares causadas por SARM.


Background: The double disc diffusion method is an alternative diagnostic that allows the identification of Staphylococcus aureus isolates apparently susceptible to clindamycin but that may develop resistance due to an induction phenomena, mainly asociated to the increase in resistance to methicillin, thus increasing the possibility of failure in the treatment. Aim: To determine the frequency of induced clindamycin resistance in methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) isolated from Paraguayan children. Materials and Methods: In this cross sectional study, we collected 145 S. aureus isolates that caused skin and soft tissue and osteoarticular infections in pediatric patients of the Central Hospital I.P.S. in the period from December-2012 to November-2013. Resistance to clindamycin was determined by automated methods and double disc diffusion. PCR was performed for ermA, ermB, ermC and msrA genes from representative isolates. Results: The global resistance to methicillin and clindamycin was 67 and 13%, respectively (11% attributable to the inducible mechanism). The ermC and msrA genes were detected individually in 25 and 17% of the isolates respectively while an isolate presented both genes simultaneously. Discussion: The frequency of inducible resistance to clindamycin indicates the importance of double disc diffusion methods in microbiological practice, as well as being within the cut off points considered acceptable for the use of this antibiotic for skin infections. and osteoarticular caused by MRSA.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Dentro de las infecciones nosocomiales más frecuentes asociadas a bacterias multi-resistentes y de peor pronóstico, se encuentran las producidas por Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Esta bacteria posee una alta capacidad de adaptación a condiciones adversas como por ejemplo el pH y la osmolaridad de la orina. Pseudomonas aeruginosa es uno de los principales patógenos implicados en infecciones nosocomiales y de pacientes inmunosuprimidos. Esta bacteria se considera un agente infeccioso oportunista que posee diversos mecanismos de patogenicidad, así como de resistencia a antimicrobianos, lo que contribuye a la dificultad en el tratamiento de estas infecciones. En la presente revisión bibliográfica se analizan la taxonomía, los mecanismos de patogenicidad y genes de resistencia de P. aeruginosa. Así también, se abordan los factores microambientales de la infección urinaria producida por esta bacteria, haciendo un acercamiento al entendimiento de las bases fisiopatológicas de esta infección.


Among the most frequent nosocomial infections associated with polyresistant bacteria and with a worse prognosis, are those produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This bacterium has a high capacity to adapt to adverse conditions such as pH and osmolarity of urine. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the main pathogens involved in nosocomial infections and immunosuppressed patients. This bacterium is considered an opportunistic infectious agent that has diverse mechanisms of pathogenicity, as well as resistance to antimicrobials, which contributes to the difficulty in the treatment of these infections. In the present bibliographic review, the taxonomy, pathogenicity mechanisms and resistance genes of P. aeruginosa are analyzed. Likewise, the micro-environmental factors of the urinary infection produced by this bacterium are approached, making an approach to the understanding of the pathophysiological bases of this infection.

ABSTRACT

Los estreptococos del grupo viridans (EGV) son agentes causales de infecciones localizadas e invasivas. Dada la gravedad de las infecciones producidas por EGV sumada a las escasas comunicaciones actuales en nuestro país, los objetivos de este trabajo fueron la identificación y el estudio de la sensibilidad a los antibióticos de aislados caracterizados como EGV, recuperados de pacientes internados, para actualizar el conocimiento sobre el perfil de resistencia y la epidemiología de las infecciones ocasionadas por EGV. Se recuperaron 132 aislados de EGV en el Hospital de Clínicas «José de San Martín¼ en el período 2011-2015. La identificación se realizó mediante pruebas convencionales y espectrometría de masas (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization - Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry). El grupo Streptococcus anginosus fue el más frecuente (42%) seguido por el grupo Streptococcus mitis (33%). Dentro del grupo S. mitis se excluyó a Streptococcus pneumoniae. El 100% de los aislados fue sensible a ertapenem, linezolid y vancomicina; el 96,9% a cef-triaxona y cefepima. Se encontró un 25,8% de resistencia a penicilina (I+R) fundamentalmente en aislados de grupo S. mitis. La resistencia a tetraciclina fue del 27,2% y solo 2/132 aislados fueron resistentes a levofloxacina. Los valores de CIM de gentamicina oscilaron entre 0,5 y 32 -og/ml. El 17,4% de los aislados presentó resistencia a eritromicina sin diferencia significativa en la distribución de fenotipos M y MLS. Los resultados muestran la importancia de la vigilancia continua de las infecciones producidas por estos microorganismos con el fin de generar aportes para la elección de la terapia antibiótica adecuada.


Members of the viridans group streptococci (VGS) are the cause of local and invasive infections. Due to the severity of these infections and taking into account that reports regarding epidemiological aspects are scarce, the aims of this work were the identification and the study of the antibiotic susceptibility profiles of the isolates recovered from patients that were hospitalized in order to find out about the resistance level and the epidemiology of infections in which VGS are involved. A hundred and thirty two isolates identified as VGS were isolated at Hospital de Clínicas «José de San Martín¼ during the period 2011-2015. The identification was performed by biochemical test and mass spectrometry by Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization -Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry. Streptococcus anginosus group was prevalent (42%) followed by Streptococcus mitis group (33%). In the latter, isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae were excluded. All the VGS isolates were susceptible to ertapenem, meropenem, linezolid and vancomycin; 25.8% were resistant (I+R) to penicillin, being prevalent in the S. mitis group. Regarding ceftriaxone and cefepime 96.9% of the isolates were susceptible. Only two isolates were resistant to levofloxacin, 27.2% to tetracycline and it was not found high level resistance to gentamycin (MIC range 0.5-32 µg/ml). Resistance to erythromycin was 17.4% with no significant difference between M and MLS phenotypes. The most active antibiotics were in addition to ceftriaxone and cefepime, vancomycin, ertapenem, meropenem and linezolid. These results highlight the importance of the continuous surveillance of the infections caused by VGS in order to predict a correct antibiotic therapy.

ABSTRACT

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a gram negative bacteria that survives in the gastric acid environment. The infection is acquired mainly during childhood. Fifty to 70% of adult population has the infection. However, in the last 10 year, a decrease in the prevalence of this infection has been observed in all age groups, in particular in pediatric population and elderly patients over 60 years old. The evolution of the infection depends on bacterial factors (virulence and toxins) and host immune response. People infected mainly develop gastrointestinal diseases such as gastritis, peptic ulcer and MALT lymphoma. H. pylori infection is the main risk factor of gastric cancer and for that reason, the eradication is recommended if H. pylori has been detected through invasive or non-invasive tests. Among children, eradication is not recommended unless there is a clinical manifestation that merits. H. pylori eradication is recommended in symptomatic adults and there is a controversy about massive eradication in asymptomatic population due to the risk of development of antibiotic resistance. Treatment is based on the use of proton pump inhibitors (PPI) associated to antibiotics, that should be chosen taking into account the increasing antibiotic resistance, and local availability. Clarithromycin (CLA) and levofloxacin resistance is increasingly high, and CLA-free quadruple therapy schemes are currently recommended for first-line therapy. H. pylori eradication must be confirmed with invasive or non-invasive tests. Second-line therapy based on antibiotics not previously used, PPI high doses and bismuth is recommended.


Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) es una bacteria gramnegativa que sobrevive en el medio ácido gástrico. La infección se adquiere principalmente en la niñez. Un 50 a 70% de la población adulta es portadora, pero en los últimos 10 años, se ha observado una disminución en la prevalencia de infección en todos los grupos etarios, en particular en población pediátrica y mayores de 60 años. La evolución de la infección depende de factores propios de la bacteria (virulencia, toxinas) y de la respuesta inmune del huésped. Los individuos infectados desarrollan principalmente patologías gastrointestinales como gastritis, úlcera péptica y linfoma MALT. La infección por H. pylori es el principal factor de riesgo del cáncer gástrico por lo que se recomienda su erradicación en caso de haberse detectado mediante test invasivo o no invasivo. En niños, no es recomendable la erradicación a menos que exista una manifestación clínica que lo amerite. Se recomienda su erradicación en adultos sintomáticos y existe controversia respecto a la erradicación masiva en población asintomática debido al riesgo de desarrollar resistencia antibiótica. El tratamiento se basa en el uso de inhibidores de la bomba de protones asociado a antibióticos, los cuales deben ser escogidos teniendo en cuenta la tasa de resistencia antimicrobiana y disponibilidad local. La resistencia a claritromicina (CLA) y levofloxacino es creciente, por lo que se recomienda el uso de esquemas de cuadriterapia libre de CLA en esquemas de primera línea. Se recomienda confirmar su erradicación con test no invasivos y retratar con esquema de segunda línea con antibióticos no utilizados previamente, asociado a dosis altas de inhibidores de bomba de protones y sales de bismuto.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Tuberculosis continues to be a major public health problem worldwide. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of the Xpert MTB/RIF rapid molecular test for tuberculosis, using pulmonary samples obtained from patients treated at the Júlia Kubitschek Hospital, which is operated by the Hospital Foundation of the State of Minas Gerais, in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. This was a retrospective study comparing the Xpert MTB/RIF test results with those of standard culture for Mycobacterium tuberculosis and phenotypic susceptibility tests. Although the Xpert MTB/RIF test showed high accuracy for the detection of M. tuberculosis and its resistance to rifampin, attention must be given to the clinical status of the patient, in relation to the test results, as well as to the limitations of molecular tests.


RESUMO A tuberculose permanece como um grave problema de saúde pública. O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a acurácia do teste rápido molecular Xpert MTB/RIF em amostras pulmonares no Hospital Júlia Kubitschek, Fundação Hospitalar do Estado de Minas Gerais, localizado em Belo Horizonte (MG). Trata-se de um estudo descritivo retrospectivo, considerando-se como método padrão a cultura para o bacilo da tuberculose e o teste de sensibilidade fenotípico. O teste Xpert MTB/RIF apresentou ótima acurácia para a detecção da tuberculose e resistência à rifampicina, mas é necessária a atenção a dados clínicos do paciente em relação ao resultado do exame e às limitações dos testes moleculares.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Mastitis is an inflammatory process of the udder tissue caused mainly by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. The indiscriminate use of antibiotics fosters conditions that favor the selection of resistant microorganisms, suppressing at the same time susceptible forms, causing a serious problem in dairy cattle. Given the importance in performing an antibiogram to select the most adequate antimicrobial therapy, the aim of this study was to identify bacteria isolated from cow's milk with mastitis, in dairy farms situated in the city of Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul, and to determinate the susceptibility profile of these isolates against the antibiotics used to treat this illness. A total of 30 isolates of Staphylococcus spp., were selected from milk samples from the udder quarters with subclinical mastitis whose species were identified through the Vitek system. The susceptibility profile was performed by the disk diffusion assay, against: ampicillin, amoxicillin, bacitracin, cephalexin, ceftiofur, enrofloxacin, gentamicin, neomycin, norfloxacin, penicillin G, tetracycline and trimethoprim. In the antibiogram, 100.0% of the isolates were resistant to trimethoprim and 96.7% to tetracycline and neomycin, three strains of Staphylococcus spp., (10.0%) presented resistance to the 12 antibiotics tested and 24 (80.0%) to at least eight. These results showed the difficulty in treating mastitis, due to the pathogens' resistance.


Resumo A mastite se constitui no processo inflamatório da glândula mamária causada principalmente por bactérias Staphylococcus aureus. O uso indiscriminado dos antibióticos promove condições que favorecem a seleção de micro-organismos resistentes e, ao mesmo tempo, suprime formas suscetíveis, causando um grave problema para a bovinocultura leiteira. Tendo em vista a importância da realização do antibiograma para a seleção da terapia antimicrobiana mais adequada, o objetivo deste estudo foi identificar bactérias isoladas de leite de vaca com mastite, oriundas de propriedades leiteiras localizadas na cidade de Pelotas, RS, bem como determinar o perfil de suscetibilidade desses isolados frente a antibióticos usados para o tratamento desta doença. Foram selecionados 30 isolados de Staphylococcus spp. de amostras de leite provenientes de quartos mamários com mastite subclínica, cujas espécies foram identificadas através do sistema Vitek. O perfil de suscetibilidade foi realizado pela técnica de difusão em disco, frente a: ampicilina, amoxicilina, bacitracina, cefalexina, ceftiofur, enrofloxacina, gentamicina, neomicina, norfloxacina, penicilina G, tetraciclina e trimetoprima. No antibiograma, 100,0% dos isolados foram resistentes a trimetoprima e 96,7% a tetraciclina e a neomicina, três cepas (10,0%) foram resistentes aos 12 antibióticos testados e 24 (80,0%) a pelo menos oito. Esses resultados demonstram a dificuldade encontrada no tratamento da mastite devido à resistência dos agentes patológicos.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: To evaluate the impact of the use of the molecular test for Mycobacterium tuberculosis and its resistance to rifampin (Xpert MTB/RIF), under routine conditions, at a referral hospital in the Brazilian state of Bahia. Methods: This was a descriptive study using the database of the Mycobacteriology Laboratory of the Octávio Mangabeira Specialized Hospital, in the city of Salvador, and georeferencing software. We evaluated 3,877 sputum samples collected from symptomatic respiratory patients, under routine conditions, between June of 2014 and March of 2015. All of the samples were submitted to sputum smear microscopy and the Xpert MTB/RIF test. Patients were stratified by gender, age, and geolocation. Results: Among the 3,877 sputum samples evaluated, the Xpert MTB/RIF test detected M. tuberculosis in 678 (17.5%), of which 60 (8.8%) showed resistance to rifampin. The Xpert MTB/RIF test detected M. tuberculosis in 254 patients who tested negative for sputum smear microscopy, thus increasing the diagnostic power by 59.9%. Conclusions: The use of the Xpert MTB/RIF test, under routine conditions, significantly increased the detection of cases of tuberculosis among sputum smear-negative patients.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis is a serious complication in cirrhotic patients, and changes in the microbiological characteristics reported in the last years are impacting the choice of antibiotic used for treatment. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the changes in the epidemiology and bacterial resistance of the germs causing spontaneous bacterial peritonitis over three different periods over 17 years. METHODS: All cirrhotic patients with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis and positive culture of ascites fluid were retrospectively studied in a reference Hospital in Southern Brazil. Three periods were ramdomly evaluated: 1997-1998, 2002-2003 and 2014-2015. The most frequent infecting organisms and the sensitivity in vitro to antibiotics were registered. RESULTS: In the first period (1997-1998) there were 33 cases, the most common were: E. coli in 13 (36.11%), Staphylococcus coagulase-negative in 6 (16.66%), K. pneumoniae in 5 (13.88%), S. aureus in 4 (11.11%) and S. faecalis in 3 (8.33%). In the second period (2002-2003), there were 43 cases, the most frequent were: Staphylococus coagulase-negative in 16 (35.55%), S. aureus in 8 (17.77%), E. coli in 7 (15.55%) and K. pneumoniae in 3 (6.66%). In the third period (2014-2015) there were 58 cases (seven with two bacteria), the most frequent were: E. coli in 15 (23.1%), S. viridans in 12 (18.5%), K. pneumoniae in 10 (15.4%) and E. faecium 5 (7.7%). No one was using antibiotic prophylaxis. Considering all staphylococci, the prevalence increased to rates of the order of 50% in the second period, with a reduction in the third period evaluated. Likewise, the prevalence of resistant E. coli increased, reaching 14%. CONCLUSION: There was a modification of the bacterial population causing spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, with high frequency of gram-positive organisms, as well as an increase in the resistance to the traditionally recommended antibiotics. This study suggests a probable imminent inclusion of a drug against gram-positive organisms in the empiric treatment of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis.


RESUMO CONTEXTO: A peritonite bacteriana espontânea é uma complicação séria em pacientes cirróticos e as alterações nas características microbiológicas relatadas nos últimos anos podem afetar a escolha do antibiótico utilizado no tratamento. OBJETIVO: Os objetivos do presente estudo são avaliar as mudanças na epidemiologia e perfil de resistência bacteriana dos germes causadores de peritonite bacteriana espontânea em três períodos diferentes ao longo de 17 anos. MÉTODOS: Todos os pacientes cirróticos com peritonite bacteriana espontânea e cultura positiva de fluido ascítico foram estudados retrospectivamente em um hospital de referência no Sul do Brasil. Foram avaliados três diferentes períodos selecionados de forma randômica: 1997-1998, 2002-2003 e 2014-2015. Os organismos infecciosos mais frequentes e a sensibilidade in vitro a antibióticos foram registados. RESULTADOS: No primeiro período (1997-1998) houve 33 casos; os mais comuns foram: E. coli em 13 (36,1%), Staphylococcus coagulase-negativo em 6 (16,7%), K. pneumoniae em 5 (13,9%), S. aureus em 4 (11,1%) e S. faecalis em 3 (8,3%). No segundo período (2002-2003), houve 43 casos, os mais frequentes foram: Staphylococus coagulase-negativo em 16 (35,5%), S. aureus em 8 (17,8%), E. coli em 7 (15,5%) e K. pneumoniae em 3 (6,7%). No terceiro período (2014-2015), houve 58 casos (sete com duas bactérias), os mais frequentes foram: E. coli em 15 (23,1%), S. viridans em 12 (18,5%), K. pneumoniae em 10 (15,4%) e E. faecium 5 (7,7%). Nenhum paciente estava usando profilaxia antibiótica. Quando considerados todos os estafilococos, a prevalência aumentou para taxas da ordem de 50% no segundo período, apresentando redução no terceiro período avaliado. Do mesmo modo, a prevalência de E coli resistente aumentou, chegando a 14%. CONCLUSÃO: Houve modificação da população bacteriana causadora de peritonite bacteriana espontânea, com alta frequência de organismos gram-positivos, bem como aumento da resistência aos antibióticos tradicionalmente recomendados. Este estudo sugere uma provável inclusão iminente de um medicamento contra organismos gram-positivos no tratamento empírico da peritonite bacteriana espontânea.

ABSTRACT

El aumento de la resistencia bacteriana múltiple a antimicrobianos es considerado una gran amenaza para la salud pública mundial y como generador de una importante crisis en el funcionamiento de los sistemas de salud. Esta crisis es discutida diariamente por los gobiernos y los parlamentos, las instituciones globales de salud, fundaciones benéficas y de científicos y de profesionales de la salud y también de consumidores de productos animales. En todos los países del orbe se ha identificado al uso de antimicrobianos en la crianza industrial de animales como un importante determinante en la selección de esta resistencia. Aprovechando la oportunidad que se ha planteado en Chile con el diseño del Plan Nacional Contra la Resistencia a los Antimicrobianos, hemos creído importante revisitar y actualizar sumariamente nuestros estudios sobre el uso de antimicrobianos en la acuicultura del salmón y de su potencial impacto en el ambiente y la salud humana y animal. Estos estudios indican que 95% de tres grupos de antimicrobianos importados al país, que incluyen tetraciclinas, fenicoles y quinolonas, son usados en medicina veterinaria y mayormente en la acuicultura del salmón. Nuestros estudios indican que el excesivo uso de estos antimicrobianos genera la presencia de residuos de antimicrobianos en el ambiente marino hasta 8 km de los sitios de acuicultura, los que seleccionan a bacterias con resistencia múltiple en dicho ambiente, ya que ellas contienen variados genes de resistencia a estos antimicrobianos. Estos genes de resistencia están contenidos en elementos genéticos móviles incluyendo plásmidos e integrones, los que son trasmitidos a otras bacterias permitiendo su potencial diseminación epidémica entre poblaciones bacterianas. Bacterias del ambiente marino contienen genes idénticos a los genes de resistencia a quinolonas e integrones similares a los de patógenos humanos, sugiriendo comunicación genética entre estas bacterias de diversos ambientes. Alrededor de los recintos de acuicultura, este uso exagerado de antimicrobianos contamina con ellos también a peces silvestres para consumo humano y potencialmente selecciona BRA en su carne y en los productos de acuicultura. El consumo de estos productos selecciona bacterias resistentes en el microbioma humano y facilita también el intercambio genético entre bacterias del ambiente acuático y la microbiota comensal y patógena humana. El pasaje de antimicrobianos al ambiente marino disminuye la diversidad en él, y potencialmente podría facilitar la aparición de florecimientos de algas nocivas, la infección de peces por patógenos piscícolas resistentes los antimicrobianos y la aparición de patógenos zoonóticos resistentes, incluyendo a Vibrio parahaemolyticus. Estos hallazgos sugieren que la prevención de infecciones en peces y la disminución del uso de antimicrobianos en su crianza, será en Chile un factor determinante en la prevención de infecciones humanas y animales con resistencia múltiple a los antimicrobianos, de acuerdo con el paradigma moderno e integral de Una Salud.


The emergence and dissemination of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria (ARB) is currently seen as one of the major threats to human and animal public health. Veterinary use of antimicrobials in both developing and developed countries is many-fold greater than their use in human medicine and is an important determinant in selection of ARB. In light of the recently outlined National Plan Against Antimicrobial Resistance in Chile, our findings on antimicrobial use in salmon aquaculture and their impact on the environment and human health are highly relevant. Ninety-five percent of tetracyclines, phenicols and quinolones imported into Chile between 1998 and 2015 were for veterinary use, mostly in salmon aquaculture. Excessive use of antimicrobials at aquaculture sites was associated with antimicrobial residues in marine sediments 8 km distant and the presence of resistant marine bacteria harboring easily transmissible resistance genes, in mobile genetic elements, to these same antimicrobials. Moreover, quinolone and integron resistance genes in human pathogens isolated from patients in coastal regions adjacent to aquaculture sites were identical to genes isolated from regional marine bacteria, consistent with genetic communication between bacteria in these different environments. Passage of antimicrobials into the marine environment can potentially diminish environmental diversity, contaminate wild fish for human consumption, and facilitate the appearance of harmful algal blooms and resistant zoonotic and human pathogens. Our findings suggest that changes in aquaculture in Chile that prevent fish infections and decrease antimicrobial usage will prove a determining factor in preventing human and animal infections with multiply-resistant ARB in accord with the modern paradigm of One Health.

ABSTRACT

Haemophilus parasuis is the etiological agent of Glässer's disease (GD), an ubiquitous infection of swine characterized by systemic fibrinous polyserositis, polyarthritis and meningitis. Intensive use of antimicrobial agents in swine husbandries during the last years triggered the development of antibiotic resistances in bacterial pathogens. Thus, regular susceptibility testing is crucial to ensure efficacy of different antimicrobial agents to this porcine pathogen. In this study, 50 clinical isolates from South Brazilian pig herds were characterized and analyzed for their susceptibility to commonly used antibiotic. The identification and typing of clinical isolates was carried out by a modified indirect hemagglutination assay combined with a multiplex PCR. The susceptibility of each isolate was analyzed by broth microdilution method against a panel of 21 antimicrobial compounds. We found that field isolates are highly resistance to gentamycin, bacitracin, lincomycin and tiamulin, but sensitive to ampicillin, clindamycin, neomycin, penicillin, danofloxacin and enrofloxacin. Furthermore, an individual susceptibility analysis indicated that enrofloxacin is effective to treat clinical isolates with the exception of those classified as serovar 1. The results presented here firstly demonstrate the susceptibility of Brazilian clinical isolates of H. parasuis to antimicrobials widely used by swine veterinary practitioners and strengthen the need to perform susceptibility test prior to antibiotic therapy during GD outbreaks. In addition, because only six antimicrobial drugs (28.6%) were found effective against field isolates, a continuous surveillance of the susceptibility profile should be of major concern to the swine industry.(AU)


Haemophilus parasuis é o agente etiológico da doença de Glässer (GD), um processo infeccioso que acomete suínos e que se caracteriza por poliserosites fibrinosas sistêmicas, poliartrites e meningites. O uso intensivo de agentes antimicrobianos na produção de suínos, durante os últimos anos, tem disparado a seleção de cepas bacterianas resistentes a antibióticos. Desta maneira, a avaliação rotineira de susceptibilidade torna-se crucial para assegurar a correta seleção de um antimicrobiano eficaz contra este patógeno. Neste estudo, analisou-se a susceptibilidade antimicrobiana de 50 isolados clínicos de H. parasuis procedentes de granjas localizadas na região sul do Brasil. A identificação e tipificação dos isolados clínicos foi realizada através de uma PCR multiplex combinada com o teste de hemaglutinação indireta modificada. A susceptibilidade de cada isolado foi analisada pelo método de microdiluição em caldo utilizando-se um painel composto por 21 agentes antimicrobianos. Os resultados deste estudo indicam que as cepas clínicas de H. parasuis apresentam alta resistência à gentamicina, bacitracina, lincomicina e tiamulina, no entanto, são susceptíveis a ampicilina, clindamicina, neomicina, penicilina, enrofloxacina e danofloxacina. A análise de susceptibilidade realizada dentro de cada grupo de cepas de um mesmo sorovar indicou que a enrofloxacina é o antibiótico mais efetivo para tratar todos isolados clínicos com exceção daqueles pertencentes ao sorovar 1. Em termos gerais, neste trabalho, demonstra-se o perfil de susceptibilidade de isolados clínicos de H. parasuis aos antimicrobianos comumente utilizados pelos médicos veterinários especialistas em suínos, e reforça-se a necessidade da realização de testes de susceptibilidade antes do início da terapia com antibióticos durante surtos de DG. Além disso, como somente seis antimicrobianos (28.6%) foram efetivos contra os isolados clínicos, uma vigilância contínua do perfil de susceptibilidade aos antimicrobianos deve ser de grande preocupação para a indústria de suínos.(AU)

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND Mycobacterium abscessus complex (MABC) includes species with high resistance rates among mycobacterial pathogens. In fact, MABC infections may not respond to clarithromycin treatment, which has historically been very effective against MABC infection. Molecular markers have been proposed to detect both acquired (rrl polymorphisms) and inducible (erm(41) polymorphisms) clarithromycin resistance in MABC isolates. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to evaluate the susceptibility profile and molecular markers of clarithromycin resistance in MABC. METHODS The clarithromycin susceptibility profile was determined by broth microdilution with reads on days 3, 5, 7 and 14. Mutations in the rrl and erm(41) genes were evaluated by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using specific primers, followed by sequencing. FINDINGS A total of 14 M. abscessus subsp. abscessus isolates and 28 M. abscessus subsp. massiliense isolates were evaluated, and clarithromycin resistance was observed in all isolates for up to three days of incubation. None of the 42 isolates exhibited a point mutation in the rrl gene, while all the isolates had a T28 polymorphism in the erm(41) gene. Moreover, all 28 M. abscessus subsp. massiliense isolates had a deletion in the erm(41) gene. MAIN CONCLUSIONS While all the MABC isolates exhibited acquired clarithromycin resistance, no isolates exhibited a point mutation in the rrl gene in this study. The M. abscessus subsp. massiliense isolates demonstrated clarithromycin resistance, which is an uncommon phenotype. The molecular data for the rrl and erm(41) genes were not consistent with the phenotypic test results of clarithromycin susceptibility, indicating a lack of correlation between molecular clarithromycin resistance markers for both acquired and inducible resistance.

ABSTRACT

Resumen En el siglo XXI, la humanidad se encuentra frente a una era post-antibiótica, en la cual es común la aparición de infecciones con una menor o nula alternativa terapéutica. En este contexto, se hace indispensable implementar medidas que optimicen el arsenal terapéutico disponible, generando nuevas estrategias para contrarrestar la creciente resistencia bacteriana y la era post-antibiótica. Las interacciones evolutivas plantean que el desarrollo de susceptibilidad o resistencia de un microorganismo a un antimicrobiano tendrá un efecto inverso (susceptibilidad colateral) o similar (resistencia cruzada) en un segundo antimicrobiano incorporado en este sistema. Las interacciones evolutivas se plantean como un nuevo mecanismo de interacción medicamentosa, al tiempo que se identifica a la susceptibilidad colateral como una estrategia terapéutica para combatir la resistencia bacteriana, que se podría integrar y evaluar en un futuro como una nueva estrategia en los programas de gerenciamiento de antimicrobianos.


In the 21st century, the world is facing a post-antibiotic era, in which the appearance of infections with a minor or no therapeutic alternative is common. In this context, it is essential to implement measures that optimize the available therapeutic tool, thus generating new strategies that strengthen the fight against growing bacterial resistance. The evolutionary interactions suggest that the development of sensitivity or resistance of a microorganism to an antimicrobial will have an inverse effect (collateral sensitivity) or similar (cross resistance) in a second antimicrobial that is involved in this system. The evolutionary interactions are considered as a new mechanism of drug interaction, and additional, it establishes the collateral sensitivity as a therapeutic strategy to combat bacterial resistance, which could be integrated and evaluated in the future as a new strategy in the antimicrobial stewardship programs.
