Summary of "Occurrence, Seasonal Variation and Risk Assessment of Antibiotics in the Surface Water of North China."

In this study, the occurrence, seasonal, and spatial variations of four classes antibiotics were investigated in the surface water of North China. Water samples were taken from 24 sampling sites along rivers in May and August and antibiotics in water samples were detected by SPE-UPLC-MS/MS. The occurrence of all antibiotics except for FLO in May were higher than in August. The mean concentrations of four classes antibiotics detected in May and August were in the following order respectively: quinolones (421.23 ng/L) > tetracyclines (28.37 ng/L) > amphenicols (20.38 ng/L) > sulfonamides (5.79 ng/L) and amphenicols (284.36 ng/L) > quinolones (15.74 ng/L) > tetracyclines (3.05 ng/L) > sulfonamides (0.20 ng/L). The results showed that quinolones and amphenicols were dominant antibiotics among four classes antibiotics. To explore the source of antibiotics from the fish ponds nearby, antibiotic concentration data, which was investigated in the sediment, fish feed and fish revealed a direct relationship between the main antibiotics and fish farms along the rivers. Risk assessment data indicated enrofloxacin and florfenicol could cause higher safety risks to aquatic organisms compared to other antibiotics.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sudden onset water phenomena with different speed of occurrence. These include flash floods, seasonal river floods, and coastal floods, associated with CYCLONIC STORMS; TIDALWAVES; and storm surges.

Change in the surface ANTIGEN of a microorganism. There are two different types. One is a phenomenon, especially associated with INFLUENZA VIRUSES, where they undergo spontaneous variation both as slow antigenic drift and sudden emergence of new strains (antigenic shift). The second type is when certain PARASITES, especially trypanosomes, PLASMODIUM, and BORRELIA, survive the immune response of the host by changing the surface coat (antigen switching). (From Herbert et al., The Dictionary of Immunology, 4th ed)

Variation in rates of disease occurrence and disabilities between socioeconomic and /or geographically defined population groups.

Nonsusceptibility of bacteria to the action of the beta-lactam antibiotics. Mechanisms responsible for beta-lactam resistance may be degradation of antibiotics by BETA-LACTAMASES, failure of antibiotics to penetrate, or low-affinity binding of antibiotics to targets.

A surfactant that renders a surface wettable by water or enhances the spreading of water over the surface; used in foods and cosmetics; important in contrast media; also with contact lenses, dentures, and some prostheses. Synonyms: humectants; hydrating agents.
