Summary of "In vitro activity of β-lactams in combination with avibactam against multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and Achromobacter xylosoxidans isolates from patients with cystic fibrosis."

The in vitro activity of anti-pseudomonal β-lactams in combination with avibactam was evaluated against 54 multidrug-resistant non-fermenting Gram-negative bacilli isolated from cystic fibrosis patients. Avibactam increased and/or restored the antibacterial activities of ceftazidime and aztreonam against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, respectively. No β-lactam-avibactam combination was active against Achromobacter xylosoxidans.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

LACTAMS forming compounds with a ring size of approximately 1-3 dozen atoms.

Cyclic AMIDES formed from aminocarboxylic acids by the elimination of water. Lactims are the enol forms of lactams.

The concentration of a compound needed to reduce population growth of organisms, including eukaryotic cells, by 50% in vitro. Though often expressed to denote in vitro antibacterial activity, it is also used as a benchmark for cytotoxicity to eukaryotic cells in culture.

A dideoxynucleoside analog that inhibits reverse transcriptase and has in vitro activity against HIV.

A fluorescent probe with low toxicity which is a potent substrate for P-glycoprotein and the bacterial multidrug efflux transporter. It is used to assess mitochondrial bioenergetics in living cells and to measure the efflux activity of P-glycoprotein in both normal and malignant cells. (Leukemia 1997;11(7):1124-30)
