Background: The efficacy of the prenatal screening-based approach recommended by the CDC to prevent neonatal GBS diseases could be improved by using a good rapid test performed at the onset of labor. To assess the Strep B OIA® test (Biostar, Boulder, Co), completed in 30 minutes, we initiated a 6-center study to compare it with prenatal screening cultures to identify GBS carriers at delivery or opportunities to initiate intrapartum antibioprophylaxis (IAP). Methods: For a total of 539 pregnant women included in the study, pairs of vaginal/anal specimens collected at 35-37 weeks and intrapartum vaginal specimens were plated onto colistin-nalidixic agar and then inoculated into selective LIM broth for the detection of GBS. Furthermore, on each intrapartum vaginal swab a Strep B OIA test was performed. Results: GBS were recovered in culture from 89 prenatal screenings (17%) and from 71 specimens collected at delivery (13%). Strep B OIA test identified 48 positive specimens (9%). Respectively, for the identification of GBS carriers at delivery, sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values for prenatal screening cultures were 69%, 91%, 55% and 95% and for Strep B OIA tests they were 63%, 99%, 94% and 95%. Evaluating opportunities to start an IAP, based on Strep OIA test versus prenatal screening cultures, 45 IAP vs. 49 would have been useful, 3 vs. 40 useless (P< 0,001) and 26 vs. 22 missed. Conclusion: To identify GBS carriers, the Strep B OIA test, performed at the time of onset of labor is equally sensitive to prenatal screening cultures and would allow a highly significant reduction of useless IAP.

Reinvestigation of Strychnos icaja Baillon resulted in the isolation of vomicine, isostrychnine and of three new sungucine derivatives, named isosungucine (8), 18-hydroxy-sungucine (9) and 18-hydroxy-isosungucine (10). They were identified by detailed spectroscopic methods. The complete 1H- and 13C-NMR study of sungucine was also realized. Some of these compounds were highly active against Plasmodium falciparum in vitro and more particularly against the chloroquine-resistant strain. Compound 10 showed a selective antiplasmodial activity, with > 100-fold greater toxicity towards Plasmodium falciparum, relative to cultured human cancer cells (KB and HeLa lines) or fibroblasts (WI38).

CLINICAL REPORT: A clinical report of a contact lenses wearer with Acanthamoeba keratitis pointed out the diagnosis problem. The medical treatment is needed previously to any surgery. Finally the patient underwent enucleation. DISCUSSION: The authors are considering the microbiological aspects and laboratory techniques are described. CONCLUSION: For this very severe but hopefully rare pathology, the sooner the treatment the best. A therapeutic approach is described. [less ▲]

Background: The usefullness of a nested PCR for detection of Aspergillus fumigatus DNA was evaluated in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid during a period of two years (1996- 1998). The aim of the study was to assess the role of PCR in diagnosing invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA). Methods: A nested PCR-based amplification of fragments of genes-encoding alkaline proteases from A. fumigatus was used to test 167 BAL samples. All samples were checked for the absence of amplification inhibitors. Medical, radiological, microbiological records and autopsy findings were reviewed for assessing invasive aspergillosis. All successive patients investigated by BAL were included in the study. They were distributed in three groups: A, proven or probable aspergillosis (n=11); B, colonization (n=2); C, no evidence of IPA (n=154). PCR results were compared to culture détection as gold standard and to clinical data. Results: BAL fluids from 10 patients of group A were PCR positive. One case was falsely negative. Among group B, one case was PCR positive, and the second one PCR negative but had negative BAL cultures (only culture positive sputum). No false positive was detected among group C. Comparing to culture, sensitivity was 91%, specificity, 100%, positive predictive value, 100% and négative predictive value, 99%. Conclusion: 1. Aspergillus fumigatus PCR in BAL fluid was an accurate test to diagnose culture negative patients with IPA and to confirm culture positive samples; however it doesn't make difference between infection and colonization. 2. It is an appropriate test to exclude Aspergillus infection in patients at risk of invasive illness. [less ▲]

The in vitro antimalarial activities of 46 alkaloids and extracts from Strychnos species were evaluated. Two types of quasidimeric alkaloids exhibit high and selective activities against Plasmodium. Strychnopentamine and isostrychnopentamine were active against chloroquine-sensitive and -resistant strains (50% inhibitory concentration [IC(50)] approximately 0.15 microM), while dihydrousambarensine exhibited a 30-fold higher activity against the chloroquine-resistant strain (IC(50) = 0.03 microM) than it did against the chloroquine-sensitive strain.

The test consists in the PCR amplification of the DNA region coding for the 16S~23S rRNA space! of Mycobacterium species followed by the hybridization and the stringent wash of the amplified product with species specific probes immobilized on a strip. Thirteen different probes are placed on the strip enabling the specific identification of the most frequent mycobacterial strains isolated in clinical samples. One hundred twenty strains isolated from clinical specimens on Lowenstein-Jensen medium were included in the evaluation study. Lipa. identification of all the 120 strains was in agreement with identification obtained by other methods like classical bacteriological tests) Gen Probe hybridization tests, species specific PCRs. PeR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis ofthe fup65 gene (PRA) and, in some cases, DNA sequencing of an amplified fragment ofthe 168 rRNA gene. On the other hand, 35 early growing Bactec cultures from clinical specimens, taken at a GI as low as 9, were analysed by Lips Mycobacteria. 69 % ofthem could be identified on the aliquot taken when the GI was between 9 to 50. The remaining cultures could be identified on an aliquot ofBaetec mediwn taken one or 2 days later. In comparison to the other identification methods. Lipa Mycobacteria gives results by far faster than bacteriological tests and is easier to perfonn than PRA and DNA sequencing. It takes longer to perform than the Gen Probe hybridization test (lh30 PeR plus 3h30 hybridizationwashing procedure versus 2h for the Gen Probe test), but it allows, in the same procedure, identification of 9 different mycobacterial species though Gen Probe hyridiution only identifies 1 or maximum 2 species. Lipa Mycobacteria is also usable on early growing Bactec cultures. [less ▲]

The need of a simple and reliable method for routine yeasts susceptibility testing led us to evaluate two commercially available methods. We investigated the in vitro susceptibility of 67 clinical isolates (26 C. albicans, 32 C. glabrata, 4 C. krusei, 2 C. tropicalis, 2 C. kefyr and 1 S. cerevisiae) to 6 drugs flucytosine (FC), amphotericin B (A), fluconazole (FZ), itraconazole (IT), kétoconazole (K), miconazole (M), comparing two methods Fungitest (Sanofi Pasteur) and Neosensitabs (Rosco). A broth microdilution adaptation from the NCCLS-M27A procedure was used as reference method. Fungitests consist of individually packed 16 wells microplates containing 6 drugs at two critical concentrations in buffered medium. Reading was performed after 24 and 48h incubation. Neosensitabs is an agar diffusion method on Shadomy agar using antifungals tablets. Reading was performed after 24h. For all strains Neosensitabs was in concordance with NCCLS M27-A for FC (94%), A (98%), FZ (55%) I (53%) with p<0.05. Fungitest correlated with NCCLS method for all antifungals after 24 and 48h incubation time (p<0.05) with respectively 95/95% for FC, 100/100% for A, 80/76% for FZ, 81/55% for I and 93/75% for K, and 88/81 for M. Candida glabrata gave the poorest result with Neosensitabs with 28% concordance for FZand 39% for I; therefore the method can't be recommended for this species. Fungitest concordance observed was 55% for I after 48h. Our results suggest that Fungitest is appropriate for routine yeast susceptibility testing. However itraconazole testing has to be improved with this method. [less ▲]

The antimycotic activity of a new parenteral solution containing miconazole was compared to that of a marketed solution (Daktarin IV solution). This solution has been withdrawn from the belgian market probably because of the toxic effects related to the presence of polyoxyl 35 castor oil. We propose a new formulation containing 10 mg of miconazole per ml (as the marketed solution), in combination with HP-beta cyclodextrin and lactic acid. The MIC of these two solutions were determined by broth microdilution method (following the NCCLS guidelines) against 15 yeasts and 16 filamentous fungi isolates. This study showed that MIC obtained with these two solutions are not significantly different. In vitro, the cyclodextrin solution has the same antimycotic activity as the Daktarin IV solution and can be proposed as a safe and effective parenteral solution to replace the previous surfactant solution.

The lCT tuberculosis is an in vitro immunodiagnostic test for the detection of antibodies to Mycobacterium tuberculosis in serum or plasma. This test targets 5 recombinant M tuberculosis proteins, including the 38 and 85 KDa antigens. We evaluated this test on 65 sera from patients with and without TB living in Liege. Patients and methods: This test was performed on two groups : The TB group included 31 patients condidered to have an active tuberculosis : pulmonary (26 cases) or extrapulmonary (5 cases). All of them had at least one sample with positive culture and received anti-tuberculous treatment. The identification of TB strains was performed with Accuprobe M tuberculosis complexe (Gen-Probe). The second group (control group) included 34 patients with the following characteristics: BCG negative nonexposed healthy (19), BCG positive or exposed healthy (2), non-TB respiratory disease (10), atypical TB (3). The identification of the atypical mycobacteria was determined according to the biochemical characteristics or by molecular biology. Results. The sensitivity is 38.7%, the specificity is 94%. The positive predictive value is 85.7% and the negative predictive value is 62,7%. Two false lCT positive results were found in the control group: both patients had a past infection with TB. Conclusion: This test is very easy and rapid to perform, has a good specificity but lacks sensitivity in low prevalence countries. A positive lCT allows same day diagnosis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. [less ▲]
