Antibiotics advanced medicine l.jpg

Antibiotics Advanced Medicine

  • The discovery of potent and safe antimicrobial agents is arguably the single greatest health care advance in history. The availability of these agents rapidly reduced the morbidity and mortality associated with a host of formerly fatal diseases.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Microbes follow the darwin s theory l.jpg

Microbes follow the Darwin's Theory

  • The widespread use of antibiotics has been associated with what we now know to be the predictable emergence of resistance.

  • Early confidence that infections would eventually be conquered has given way to a greater appreciation of the genetic flexibility of common human pathogens

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Eskape and cdc l.jpg

ESKAPE AND CDC

  • According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the six ESKAPE bacteria are responsible for two thirds of all health care-associated infections (HAIs)

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Eskape pathogens of highest con cern l.jpg

ESKAPE Pathogens of Highest Concern

  • The most serious, life-threatening infections are caused by a group of drug-resistant bacteria that the

  • Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) has labeled the "ESKAPE" pathogens, because they effectively escape the effects of antibacterial drugs

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Eskape bacteria l.jpg

ESKAPE - Bacteria

  • ESKAPE bacteria— Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella species, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacter species—are among the biggest threat of infectious diseases physicians face today,

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Bad bugs no drugs no new drugs l.jpg

Bad Bugs, No Drugs: No New Drugs

  • Enterococcus faecium(E), Staphylococcus aureus(S), Klebsiella pneumoniae(K), Acinetobacter baumannii(A),Pseudomonas aeruginosa(P), and Enterobacter spp.(also E. coli) (E)

  • The late-stage clinical development pipeline remains unacceptably lean

  • Some important molecules for problematic pathogens such as MRSA and E. faecium

  • Few novel prospects for other ESKAPE pathogens, especially multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacilli, such as A. baumannii and P. aeruginosa)

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Why eskape are threat l.jpg

WhyESKAPEARE THREAT

  • The ESKAPE pathogens (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacter species) are responsible for a substantial percentage of nosocomial infections in the modern hospital and represent the vast majority of isolates whose resistance to antimicrobial agents presents serious therapeutic dilemmas for physician

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Why eskape microbes are a global concern l.jpg

Why ESKAPE Microbes are a Global Concern

  • The ESKAPE MICROBES are extraordinarily important, not only because they cause the lion’s share of nosocomial infections but also because they represent paradigms of pathogenesis, transmission, and resistance.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD

ESKAPEBacteria

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Eskape bacteria are major nosocomial agents l.jpg

ESKAPEBacteria are Major Nosocomial Agents

  • According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the six ESKAPE bacteria are responsible for two thirds of all health care-associated infections (HAIs).

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Enterococcus species l.jpg

Enterococcus species

  • Enterococci were responsible for one out of eight HAIs in 2006-2007. A 2004 study found about two thirds of E. faecium bloodstream infections were resistant to vancomycin, one of the most commonly used antibiotics to treat enterococcal infections. Some physicians are treating vancomycin-resistant E. faeciumwith the new antibiotics linezolid, daptomycin, and tigecycline, but these drugs have not been studied extensively for use against these infections. Furthermore, many patients cannot tolerate them.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Enterococcus faecium and faecalis l.jpg

Enterococcus faecium (and faecalis)

  • With the advent of vancomycin-resistant E. faecium, which are intrinsically resistant to ampicillin and carbapenems, in the mid-1990s we encountered virtually untreatable organisms

  • –However, enterococci have relatively low virulence, and treatment is not always required in mixed infections, unless also in blood; IV catheter infections may clear if the catheter is removed.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Newer drugs active against vre and mrsa l.jpg

Newer Drugs Active Against VRE (and MRSA)

  • Synercid (synergistic combination of two streptogramins) Bactericidal

  • –Active against E. faecium but not E. faecalis

  • –Side-effect of total-body tenderness

  • –Rarely used

  • •Linezolid (oxazolidinone)

  • –Bacteriostatic Both po and IV

  • –Occasional thrombocytopenia, esp. after 14 days (need to check plt counts at least weekly)

  • –Emergence of resistant isolates

  • –Increasingly important for MRSA

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Newer drugs active against vre and mrsa15 l.jpg

Newer Drugs Active Against VRE (and MRSA)

  • Daptomycin (lipopeptide)

  • –Rapidly bactericidal (important for bacteremia's)

  • –IV only

  • –Binds to surfactant, so not effective in pneumonia

  • –Occasional elevations of creatine phosphokinase (CPK) and associated muscle aches; seems not to be a serious problem

  • –Increasingly important for MRSA

  • •Tigecycline (glycylcycline; derivative of minocycline)

  • –Bacteriostatic

  • –IV only

  • –Active not only against Staph, Strep, and Enterococcus, but also against Enterobacteriaceae

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Staphylococcus aureus l.jpg

Staphylococcus aureus

  • The prominent name among the ESKAPEbacteria, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) outbreaks have been reported among otherwise-healthy athletes, military recruits, school children, and others. MRSA caused an estimated 94,000 invasive infections—more than 19,000 of them fatal—in 2005, according to a recent study by CDC. MRSA is a serious and growing threat in hospitals and other health care facilities,

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Slide17 l.jpg

MRSA

  • MRSA has drawn more attention from the pharmaceutical industry than any of the other ESKAPE bugs. Several new drugs are effective against these infections.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Problems with mrsa in treatments l.jpg

Problems with MRSA in Treatments

  • 60-65% of SA are MR (both ICU and non-ICU) (DMC 2009) (for presumptive treatment, must assume MR)

  • Vancomycin MIC –MICs have been generally rising

  • For vanco MIC >1 μg/ml, efficacy reduced, and even higher MICs may be selected (hVISA)

  • Therefore, for MIC >1 (>50%), we use daptomycin (esp. for bacteremia) (but not for pneumonia, in which case we use linezolid)

  • Other alternatives to vancomycin

  • TMP/SMX: IV/po; cidal; ~90% are S

  • –Clindamycin: IV/po; not reliably cidal; must check D-test; ~50% Sensitive

  • •We are losing vancomycin, but we have alternatives

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Klebsiella species l.jpg

Klebsiella species

  • These gram-negative bacteria cause infections in the urinary, biliary, and gastrointestinal tracts, and in trauma wounds. Klebsiella species and their gram-negative cousin E. coli together accounted for 18 percent of all HAIs in 2006-2007, and a growing proportion of these two carry resistance to a remarkable spectrum of antibiotics.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Problems with enterobacteriace ae l.jpg

Problems with Enterobacteriaceae

  • ESBL –Klebsiella pneumonia andE. coli (~8-10%)

  • –>90% Sensitive to carbapenems, Cefotetan/cefoxitin, tigecycline

  • KPC ß-lactamases (~1-3% Kleb pneumonia Resistant to carbapenems, as well as other ß-lactams)

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Kpc s l.jpg

KPC’s

  • Might appear susceptible to imipenem or meropenem, but with borderline MICs Usually ertapenem-resistant

  • –Modified Hodge test to confirm

  • •Usually susceptible only to colistin, tigecycline, select aminoglycosides, and possibly TMP/SMX

  • •Easily spread in hospitals (often requires cohorting of staff and patients to control)

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Acinetobacter baumannii l.jpg

Acinetobacter baumannii

  • Traditionally infects patients in ICU and Burn Units

  • •Now being seen in general hospital population and nursing homes

  • •Antimicrobial resistance is a major concern

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Acinetobacter baumannii23 l.jpg

Acinetobacter baumannii:

  • Drug resistance is a major problem in Acinetobacter infections, which are responsible for about 3 percent of all HAIs,. Soldiers are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with cases of highly resistant Acinetobacter wound infections. Strains have emerged that are resistant to all but the most toxic new generation of Antibiotics

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Pseudomonas aeruginosa l.jpg

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

  • The most commonly encountered multiresistant gram-negative pathogen

  • Relatively low pathogenicity: mainly a problem in ICUsBurn Unit Patents from long-term care facilities Additional risk factors: Immunocompromised, debilitated, prior hospitalizations, prior antibiotic therapy, trauma outdoors with exposure to water/soil

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Pseudomonas aeruginosa25 l.jpg

Pseudomonas aeruginosa:

  • Pseudomonas is a particular problem for patients on respirators and those with cystic fibrosis. Eight percent of all HAIs are caused by P. aeruginosa, and one quarter of these are resistant to carbapenems, a class of antibiotics commonly used for these infections. There are no new drugs in development for these highly resistant infections.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Enterobacter species l.jpg

Enterobacter species:

  • One in 20 HAIs is caused by this group of bacteria. Like Klebsiella, E. coli, and the other gram-negatives, Enterobacter species have developed broad-spectrum resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics. One drug, tigecycline, might work against these infections. There is no new antibiotics in the pipeline.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


The challenge global antibiotic resistance l.jpg

The Challenge:Global Antibiotic Resistance

  • Clinical and media reports have documented the rapid rise of antibiotic-resistant and MDR bacterial infections, now a major global public health concern. Most hospital-acquired infections are resistant to at least one drug, and the incidence of multi-drug resistance is rising. The inability to rapidly get these infections under control results in nearly 100,000 deaths every year in the United States, many more in Developing World

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Antimicrobial stewardship l.jpg

Antimicrobial Stewardship

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Antimicrobial stewardship29 l.jpg

Antimicrobial Stewardship.

  • Antimicrobial stewardship is a key component of a multifaceted approach to preventing emergence of antimicrobial resistance. Good antimicrobial stewardship involves selecting an appropriate drug and optimizing its dose and duration to cure an infection while minimizing toxicity and conditions for selection of resistant bacterial strains. Studies conducted over the years indicate that antibiotic use is unnecessary or inappropriate in as many as 50% of cases.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Other aspects of antimicrobial stewardship l.jpg

Other Aspects of AntimicrobialStewardship

  • The appropriate use of antimicrobials is an essential part of patient safety.

  • The frequency of inappropriate antimicrobial use is often used as a surrogate marker for the avoidable impact on antimicrobial resistance.

  • The combination of antimicrobial stewardship and comprehensive infection control has been shown to limit the emergence and transmission of antimicrobial resistant bacteria.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Antimicrobial stewardship guidelines l.jpg

ANTIMICROBIALSTEWARDSHIP GUIDELINES

  • Current efforts to thwart the siege of MDROs and to address the lack of development of antimicrobial agents center on antimicrobial stewardship. In 2007, The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) published guidelines in conjunction with the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America to outline antimicrobial stewardship practices.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD

Need to develop antibiotic stewardship in developing nations l.jpg

Need to Develop Antibiotic Stewardship in Developing Nations

  • Antimicrobial stewardship is one method many institutions are implementing to achieve this balance. Antimicrobial stewardship encompasses a wide range of services aimed at improving patient outcomes and minimizing the untoward effects of antimicrobial agents including side effects as well as induction of resistance. These programs have been shown to decrease both the development of resistance as well as expenditures on antimicrobial agents.

Why participate in stewardship l.jpg

Why Participate in Stewardship?

  • The primary goal of stewardship is to…Optimize clinical outcomes while minimizing unintended consequences of antimicrobial use, including toxicity, the selection of pathogenic organisms, and emergence of resistance.

  • Secondary goals…Reduce healthcare costs without adversely impacting quality of care.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Modifying empiric therapy l.jpg

Modifying Empiric Therapy

  • “Empiric therapy”: treatment prescribed before culture data and other testing results are available

  • In most cases, empiric therapy should be narrowed at day 3-4 or earlier

  • –If cultures are negative, try to narrow regimen

  • –If cultures are positive, usually can focus regimen

  • Often, empiric antibiotics are continued due to inertia, complicated clinical picture

  • Need automated reminders at day 3-4 for regimens including multiple antibiotics –aggressive efforts to decrease number and duration of antibiotics

  • Success might be stopping one agent out of 3, or limiting durations to 7 days instead of 14

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Supplemental elements to a stewardship program l.jpg

Dr.T.V.Rao MD


Research on newer antibiotics is a priority l.jpg

Research on Newer Antibiotics is a Priority

  • "The difficulty in identifying novel antimicrobial agents with reliable activity against these pathogens argues for an augmentation of research in the basic and population science of resistance, as well as careful studies to identify optimal strategies for infection control and antimicrobial use.

Dr.T.V.Rao MD
