  • [Title] Linezolid versus vancomycin for prosthetic joint infections: a cost analysis.
  • BACKGROUND: Prosthetic joint infections (PJIs) caused by methicillin-resistant gram-positive bacteria are primarily treated by intravenous vancomycin.
  • Linezolid, active against methicillin-resistant strains and available in oral and intravenous dosage forms, is a potential alternative to vancomycin for the treatment of PJIs.
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze the cost of linezolid therapy (outpatient setting) and vancomycin therapy (inpatient and outpatient settings) for PJIs caused by methicillin-resistant gram-positive bacteria.
  • METHODS: A decision tree was designed to simulate the clinical outcome and healthcare resource utilization of linezolid, vancomycin by outpatient and home parenteral antimicrobial therapies (OHPAT) and vancomycin administered in inpatient setting (rehabilitation facility) for patients with PJIs caused by methicillin-resistant strains.
  • The clinical treatment success rates of vancomycin and linezolid were influential factors.
  • Monte Carlo 10,000 simulations showed that the vancomycin (OHPAT) group was less costly than the arms of linezolid and vancomycin (rehabilitation) 64% and 100% of the time, respectively.
  • The linezolid group was less costly than the vancomycin (rehabilitation) group in 65%of the times.
  • CONCLUSION: Home-infusion of vancomycin therapy appears to be the least costly treatment approach for PJIs caused by methicillin-resistant gram-positive bacteria from the perspective of a Hong Kong public health organization.

  • [Title] Guiding empirical antibiotic therapy in orthopaedics: The microbiology of prosthetic joint infection managed by debridement, irrigation and prosthesis retention.
  • OBJECTIVES: This study describes the microbiological spectrum of prosthetic joint infection (PJI) managed by debridement, washout and retention and so guides the choice of empirical antibiotics within this patient group.
  • METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of all patients admitted to our specialist tertiary unit for PJI who were managed with debridement and irrigation or arthroscopic washout of infected prosthetic joints between 1st January 1998 and 30th April 2003.
  • Eighty-six percent of polymicrobial cultures occurred in early infections when 47% of patients grew more than one organism.
  • MSSA was the most frequently isolated organism at all time points.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most infections involved staphylococci.
  • Most polymicrobial infections occurred in early infection.
  • A high rate of resistance to cephalosporins among Gram-negative organisms justifies the use of a broader agent such as a carbapenem in the early empirical antibiotic regime for PJI.

  • [Title] [Surgical treatment of carcinoma of the pancreas].
  • Invasive ductal carcinoma of the pancreas (pancreatic cancer) is mainly treated by operative resection, radio-chemotherapy, or chemotherapy.
  • The survival rate of the patients with each treatment is not good when compared with that in other cancers.
  • In addition, the volume of pancreatic cancer patients treated at the institution and the surgeon's personal experience may greatly affect the decision.
  • A recent randomized clinical trial from Japan revealed that surgical resection has a survival advantage over chemo-radiation therapy for locally advanced pancreatic cancer, which is defined as stage IVa in the fourth Japanese edition of the Classification of Pancreatic Carcinoma.
  • In addition, the surgical indications should be reevaluated in combination with the adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy in future.

  • [Title] Antibiotic susceptibility among Staphylococcus epidermidis isolated from prosthetic joint infections with special focus on rifampicin and variability of the rpoB gene.
  • Staphylococcus epidermidis is the most important pathogen in infections related to implanted foreign materials, especially prosthetic joint infections (PJIs).
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the antimicrobial activities of 16 antibiotics against S. epidermidis isolated from PJIs, with special focus on rifampicin and rpoB variability.
  • Among the other antibiotics, the rates of resistance varied between 0% (vancomycin) and 82% (trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole). S. epidermidis strains causing PJIs often show multiresistance, including resistance to rifampicin, which is mainly caused by one or two SNPs.
  • Some of the newer antimicrobial agents may provide alternatives for monotherapy or combination therapy with rifampicin.
  • Detection of mecA is necessary before initiating treatment of infections due to S. epidermidis when it displays intermediate susceptibility to cefoxitin.

  • AIM: Preliminary results of research on the therapeutical efficacy of weak variable magnetic fields with low value of induction used as magnetostimulation in patients with depression not reacting to two consecutive, correctly applied anti-depressant pharmacological treatment are presented in the paper.
  • In 1 group (11 persons--9 women and 2 men) magnetostimulation with the use of a weak variable magnetic field with a low value of induction of 15 microT generated by the VIOFOR JPS device (Poland) lasting 12 minutes daily for 15 days was added to pharmacological therapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: It was concluded that adding magnetostimulation to pharmacological therapy results in a progressive, significant reduction of intensification of depression symptoms.

  • [Title] [Chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer].
  • Gemcitabine (GEM) has replaced 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-based chemotherapy as the standard of care.
  • For locally advanced disease, most recent studies have incorporated GEM into combined-modality therapy.
  • Similarly, in surgically resectable disease, current trials are incorporating GEM into adjuvant therapy.
  • According to several clinical trials it has been demonstrated that improvements in locoregional control and survival may be achieved when chemotherapy using 5-FU is added to radiation for locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
  • The new regimen for locally advanced disease has demonstrated that the better outcome is expected by chemoradiation therapy with 5-FU followed by GEM treatment.
  • In order to develop chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer, we are analyzing mRNA expression of pancreas cancer cell lines and examined their resistant against to GEM.
  • One of the genes is demonstrated to be a responsible for drug sensitivity by clustering analysis.

  • [Title] Uncertain efficacy of daptomycin for prosthetic joint infections: a prospective case series.
  • Daptomycin is an option for prosthetic joint infection (PJI) because it is bactericidal against gram-positive bacteria, including multiple-resistant isolates, and active against stationary-phase bacteria in biofilm present on implants.
  • To evaluate its possible utility, we prospectively monitored 12 adults with gram-positive PJI who were not candidates for vancomycin.
  • One died of an unrelated cause shortly after completing therapy.
  • Five patients had culture-confirmed failure-all due to MRSA-including two during therapy despite hardware removal and three 1 to 10 months after completing daptomycin but with retained hardware.
  • The efficacy of daptomycin 4 mg/kg/day is uncertain in patients with PJI, especially when hardware is retained.

  • [Title] Does postoperative chemotherapy have a survival benefit for patients with pancreatic cancer?
  • In our study, we investigated whether postoperative chemotherapy improved survival in patients with invasive ductal carcinoma of the pancreas.
  • Median survival time (MST) was 19.4 months, 8.6 months, and 7.2 months, in JPS Stage III (UICC Stage IIA and IIB), JPS Stage IVa (UICC Stage IIA and IIB), and JPS Stage IVb (UICC Stage IV), respectively (P < 0.01).
  • The MST of the chemotherapy group was 12 months, and the MST of the non-chemotherapy group was 8.4 months (P < 0.05).
  • Moreover, in JPS Stage IV (UICC Stage IIA, IIB, III, and IV) highly advanced pancreatic cancer, the MST of the chemotherapy group was 10.9 months, and the MST of the group without chemotherapy was 6.6 months (P < 0.01).
  • Since pancreatic cancer is characterized by an aggressive tumor with a high recurrent rate, postoperative chemotherapy is effective for an improvement of survival.

  • [Title] Prolonged bacterial culture to identify late periprosthetic joint infection: a promising strategy.
  • BACKGROUND: The value of microbiological culture to diagnose late periprosthetic infection is limited, especially because standard methods may fail to detect biofilm-forming sessile or other fastidious bacteria.
  • This study was designed to assess the duration of culture that is necessary for reliable detection.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ten periprosthetic tissue specimens each were obtained during revision from 284 patients with suspected late hip or knee arthroplasty infection.
  • To define infection, a pre-established algorithm was used; this included detection of indistinguishable organisms in >/=2 tissue samples or growth in 1 tissue sample and a positive result of histologic analysis (>5 neutrophils in at least 10 high-power fields).
  • The time to detection of organisms was monitored.
  • RESULTS: Infection was diagnosed in 110 patients.
  • After 7 days (the longest incubation period most frequently reported), the detection rate via culture was merely 73.6%.
  • Organisms indicating infection were found for up to 13 days.
  • In both populations, an unequivocal correlation between the number of culture-positive tissue samples and positive results of histologic analysis was noted, which corroborated the evidence that true infections were detected over the entire cultivation period.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Prolonged microbiological culture for 2 weeks is promising because it yields signs of periprosthetic infection in a significant proportion of patients that would otherwise remain unidentified.

  • [Title] Efficacy and safety of rifampin containing regimen for staphylococcal prosthetic joint infections treated with debridement and retention.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of rifampin for Staphylococcus aureus (SA) or coagulase negative staphylococci (CNS) prosthetic joint infection (PJI) treated with debridement and retention (D/R).
  • We calculated the treatment failure cumulative incidence (TF) of a cohort of 101 patients with SA or CNS PJI treated with D/R and antimicrobial therapy.
  • Cox proportional hazards regression evaluated the association between treatment and time-to-TF controlling for the propensity to treat with rifampin and temporal confounders.
  • Seven percent (1/14) of the prospective rifampin-treated patients, 32% (10/31) of the historical rifampin-treated patients and 38% (21/56) of the historical non-rifampin treated patients developed TF.
  • None (0/14) of the patients in the prospective study developed hepatotoxicity.
  • The outcome of staphylococcal PJI treated with D/R and rifampin-based regimens was better when compared with a historical cohort treated without rifampin.

  • [Title] Therapeutic efficacy assessment of weak variable magnetic fields with low value of induction in patients with drug-resistant depression.
  • BACKGROUND: The aim of this prospective study was to verify whether magnetostimulation with weak variable magnetic fields with low value of induction could enhance the effects of pharmacological therapy in drug-resistant depression.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty patients, 26 women and 4 men, with drug-resistant depression were enrolled in the study.
  • I (14 patients) were given fluvoxamine and treated with weak variable magnetic field using the VIOFOR JPS device; the subjects from Group No.
  • II (16 patients) were also given fluvoxamine but they were treated with the VIOFOR JPS device in placebo mode.
  • RESULTS: After 15 days of treatment highly significant differences were revealed between the patients treated with magnetic field and the patients treated with placebo: the final HDRS score was 53% of the initial value for the group receiving combined treatment, and 86% in the placebo group (p<0.001); for MADRS score the values were 51% and 88% (p<0.001), respectively, and for BDI 60% and 87% (p<0.001).
  • 15% reduction of symptoms, while the concurrent application of magnetic field and SSRI treatment resulted in a 40-50% improvement.
  • CONCLUSION: Our study indicates that adding a two-week low-induction variable magnetic field stimulation to a classical pharmacologic therapy reduces the intensity of symptoms in patients with drug-resistant depressive disorders.

  • [Title] A two-stage retention débridement protocol for acute periprosthetic joint infections.
  • BACKGROUND: Due to the historically poor infection control rates with débridement and component retention for acute periprosthetic infections we developed a new approach for treating acute periprosthetic total joint infections: initial débridement with prosthesis retention and placement of antibiotic-impregnated cement beads followed by a second débridement within 7 days, at which time the beads are removed and new modular parts inserted.
  • QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We determined the ability of this two-stage débridement to control infection.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 20 patients who underwent this technique; 2 had postoperative and 18 had hematogenous infections.
  • The primary outcome measure was the infection control.
  • RESULTS: Two of the 20 patients had persistent infection.
  • Of the 18 patients without evidence of persistent infection, 10 were no longer on antibiotics at the most recent followup and eight were treated with long-term antibiotics due to compromised host status.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The control of infection in 18 of 20 patients using this technique compares favorably with historical success rates, which range from 24% to 100%.
  • Further research is required to analyze the individual contribution of débridement technique, the use of serial débridements, local depot antibiotics, and combination antibiotic therapy on short-term infection control rates and the long-term persistent control of periprosthetic infection.

  • Preoperative histologic diagnosis and diagnostic imaging are fundamentals in managing the disease, but it is not rare to find unexpected peritoneal dissemination or liver metastasis at the time of operation.
  • Multidisciplinary treatments combined with surgery were performed, and various effects of postoperative chemotherapy after pancreatectomy, intraoperative- and postoperative-radiation therapy, or postoperative chemotherapy for unresectable tumor, were shown.
  • Development of unconventional therapies and refinement of the conventional therapy should be promoted on a randomized prospective trial basis.
  • To promote this effort, which requires the international comparisons and cooperation, JPS developed a computerized JPS registration system downloadable from the JPS website (http://www.kojin.or.jp/suizou/index.html).
