Background: Omadacycline is a potent aminomethylcycline, with in vitro activity against Gram-positive, Gram-negative, and anaerobic bacteria. Preliminary data demonstrated that omadacycline has in vitro activity against Clostridioides difficile; however, large-scale in vitro studies have not been done. The purpose of this study was to assess the in vitro susceptibility of omadacycline and comparators on a large biobank of clinical C. difficile isolates.Methods:In vitro C. difficile susceptibilit...

Clostridioides difficile spores can survive in the environment in either mono mixed-species biofilms. However, no previous studies have investigated chemical disinfection of C. difficile spores embedded in biofilms. Thus, the purpose of this study was to assess the in vitro effectiveness of hospital disinfectants against C. difficile spores embedded within biofilms. Five unique C. difficile strains embedded in three different biofilm types grown for 72 or 120 h were exposed to seven different ho...

Summary Background An ultraviolet C (UVC) decontamination device that delivers germicidal UVC radiation to the soles of shoes has become available recently. Aim To demonstrate that shoe soles can be vectors for healthcare-associated infection, and to investigate if a UVC shoe sole decontamination device would decrease this risk effectively. Methodology Three bacterial strains (Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis and Escherichia coli) and a non-toxigenic strain of Clostridium difficile w...

Assessment of antibiotic action with new drug development directed towards anaerobic bacteria is difficult and technically demanding. To gain insight into possible MOA, morphologic changes associated with antibiotic exposure can be visualized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Integrating SEM imaging with traditional kill curves may improve our insight into drug action and advance the drug development process. To test this premise, kill curves and SEM studies were conducted using drugs wi...
