chemotherapeutic evaluation of 5-episisomicin (sch 22591), a new semisynthetic aminoglycoside.5-episisomicin (sch 22591) is a novel semisynthetic aminoglycoside with a spectrum and potency similar to gentamicin in its activity against susceptible bacterial strains, but with increased potency against pseudomonas, providencia, and proteus rettgeri. it is also more active than tobramycin and amikacin against these last-mentioned species.against resistant strains, sch 22591 is significantly more active than gentamicin or tobramycin. against resistant gram-negative bacteria other than pseudom ...1978626490
[importance of research on antibacterial substances in the study of bacteriurias].a study was made of 1050 urine specimens from the nephro-urological and geriatric departments of the malpighi hospital to see how many percent contained antibacterial substances and the incidence of bacteria species. 26.5% contained antibacterial substances. proteus rettgeri was significantly more frequent in specimens containing such substances, whereas staphylococci were significantly more frequent in the remainder.1978662157
pharmacology and efficacy of netilmicin.twenty-six patients, 20 to 77 years of age, were treated with netilmicin, mean dose 2 mg/kg every 8 h intramuscularly or in a 20-min intravenous infusion. the mean serum half-lives in patients with creatinine clearances of >/=90 ml/min and 60 to 90 ml/min were 3.2 and 3.4 h, respectively. in patients with serum creatinines of </=1.4 mg/100 ml and creatinine clearances of >/=60 ml/min, mean serum levels were 9.0 and 1.2 mug/ml, respectively, 5 to 15 min and 7.5 h post-intravenous infusion, and 7. ...1978666303
cross-protection of mice provided by active and passive immunization against experimental infections with virulent proteus rettgeri and providencia bacteria.immunization with providencia and proteus rettgeri formalin-treated bacterial suspensions produced high levels of protection in mice against homologous and heterologous challenge. mice were also cross-protected, but less effectively, by passive administration of rabbit type-specific antisera. the protective activity appeared to be due to an antigen common to strains of different o-serotypes. it was not detectable in agglutination reactions, and preliminary results indicate that it is thermostabl ...1978669801
in vitro studies with sch 21420 and sch 22591: activity in comparison with six other aminoglycosides and synergy with penicillin against vitro tests were performed with sch 21420 and sch 22591 to determine (i) their activity in comparison to six other aminoglycosides against 343 clinical isolates, and (ii) whether synergy with penicillin g could be demonstrated with enterococci. in broth dilution tests, sch 22591 was more active than the seven other aminoglycosides against staphylococcus aureus, enterobacteriaceae, and most nonfermenting gram-negative bacilli. sch 22591 was as active as tobramycin against pseudomonas aeruginos ...1978697346
