Anti-Bacterial Agents

  • 2016From: Springer
    edited by Jón Hjaltalín Ólafsson, Roderick James Hay.
    This book is an up-to-date practical guide to the treatment of both common and unusual bacterial, fungal, and protozoal skin infections. Antibiotics and other treatment options for common skin diseases such as acne, rosacea, erysipelas, and impetigo are extensively discussed, and a thorough update is provided on therapies for fungal infections in the nails, hair, and skin. Current treatments for skin symptoms associated with sexually transmitted diseases are also explored in detail. As the sulfonamides and tetracyclines have long held a special status in dermatology and venereology, an individual chapter focuses on these drugs and their potential side-effects. A range of mycobacterial infections are discussed, and a further chapter considers the treatment of protozoal infections, including leishmaniasis, which are often unfamiliar to practitioners in the Western world. This handy book, with its helpful graphics and clear lists of symptoms, treatments, and practical tips, will be an ideal quick reference for the busy practitioner.

    Reports on the emergence and prevalence of resistant bacterial infections in hospitals and communities raise concerns that we may soon no longer be able to rely on antibiotics as a way to control infectious diseases. Effective medical care would require the constant introduction of novel antibiotics to keep up in the "arms race" with resistant pathogens. This book closely examines the latest developments in the field of antibacterial research and development. It starts with an overview of the growing prevalence of resistant Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens, including their various resistance mechanisms, prevalence, risk factors and therapeutic options. The focus then shifts to a comprehensive description of all major chemical classes with antibacterial properties, their chemistry, mode of action, and the generation of analogs; information that provides the basis for the design of improved molecules to defeat microbial infections and combat the emerging resistances. In closing, recently developed compounds already in clinical use, those in preclinical or first clinical studies, and a number of promising targets to be exploited in the discovery stage are discussed.

    The increasing prevalence of chronic, difficult-to-treat resistant bacterial infections have created a pressing need for the discovery of promising, novel pharmaceutical candidates that could replace or complement current therapies, which are becoming less reliable and effective due to a rise in bacterial resistance. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a naturally occurring, ubiquitous, and ancient class of antibiotics that offer a unique template for the development of novel antimicrobial therapies. However, in vivo therapeutic peptides have a short half-life since they are easily degraded by proteases, thus reducing their bioavailability, which renders them a less attractive choice therapeutically. Consequently, non-natural mimics of AMPs, which can emulate the favorable characteristics of AMPs are becoming significantly important. Poly-N-substituted glycines, also called "Peptoids", are structural and functional mimics of AMPs and are resistant to proteolysis. Predecessors in the Barron laboratory designed and characterized antimicrobial peptoids against free-floating, planktonic bacteria. However, almost 60% of infections are caused by bacterial biofilms. These complex communities of microorganisms are protected by an excreted matrix of adhesive biomacromolecules and are more difficult to kill with conventional antibiotics than planktonic bacteria. Furthermore, to develop peptoids as potential therapeutics, the mechanisms by which they interact with bacteria need to be understood, which are still under investigation. Here, we report that peptoids have similar or better efficacy than conventional antibiotics against biofilms of a clinical isolate of drug-resistant P. aeruginosa. We determined the effects of peptoids on bacterial biomass and cell viability, by Crystal Violet assay and bacterial plating, respectively. We also explored the efficacy of peptoids against Mycobacterium (an organism resistant to antibiotics due to the presence of a thick waxy coating) and intracellular L. monocytogenes by bioluminescent imaging. In addition, we also investigated the mechanisms of action of peptoids and peptides by biophysical techniques (Ultra-Violet Visible spectroscopy) and bioluminescent imaging. We report that peptoids are non-lytic and cause bacterial killing by aggregating the bacterial ribosomes and decreasing ATP levels inside the cell. Lastly, we present a mouse wound model, which suggests that peptoids are effective in vivo in reducing P. aeruginosa infections.

    Macrolides have long been among the most widely used antibiotics. Despite this utility, development of new macrolides through traditional synthetic and semisynthetic approaches has been greatly hindered by the inherent structural complexity of these compounds. Precursor-directed biosynthesis is a technique which circumvents this difficulty by incorporating simple synthetic precursors into a biosynthetic pathway, allowing the bulk of the molecule to be constructed enzymatically. This dissertation describes the evolution and application of a system for the facile production of new macrolides through precursor-directed biosynthesis. The results of this work are the discovery of an unexpected macrolide structure-activity relationship and the ultimate discovery of a promising new lead for macrolide development.
