During 2003-2007, a total of 21,400 respiratory isolates of S. pneumoniae were collected from laboratories across the 9 US Bureau of of CAP encompass the use of one or more of the following; macrolides, doxycycline, β- Census regions for the TRUST surveillance initiative. These isolates were identified and tested by a central lab, Eurofins Medinet, Inc., lactams, and respiratory fluoroquinolones. This study analyzed 5 years of data from an Antimicrobial agent
using standard reference methodologies. Antimicrobial agents of clinical interest in the treatment of respiratory infections were tested ongoing surveillance initiative to identify trends in activity between Streptococcus including: amoxicillin/clavulanate, azithromycin, cefuroxime/axetil, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, penicillin, pneumoniae (SP) and recommended oral agents. trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, and tetracycline. These agents were tested against S. pneumoniae isolates by broth microdilution according to CLSI methodology, M7-A6. MIC results were interpreted as resistant, intermediate, or susceptible according to CLSI METHODS: SP (n = 21,400) respiratory isolates from TRUST surveillance 2003-2007
were centrally tested by broth microdilution (CLSI M7-A6; M100-S16). Results for amoxicillin-clavulanate (AMX), azithromycin (AZM), cefuroxime-axetil (CXM), levofloxacin (LVX), moxifloxacin (MXF), tetracycline (TET), and penicillin (PEN) were •Resistance (R) rates to 4 common oral agents increased during the 5-year study period. From 2003 to 2007, azithromycin-R increased from 27.5% to 32.3% and amoxicillin/clavulanate-R increased from 4.1% to 9.1% (Table 1, Figure 1). In addition, tetracycline-R
increased from 13.5% to 18.8% (2004-2007) and cefuroxime-R increased from 17.5% to 18.5% (2005-2007) (Table 1, Figure 1).
RESULTS: From 2003-2007, susceptibility of SP to PEN was relatively stable (64.0-

and 0.25 µg/ml for moxifloxacin) from 2003 to 2007 (Table 2). Greater than 99% of isolates were susceptible to both levofloxacin
and moxifloxacin for all years tested with the exception of 2004 (levofloxacin %S = 98.7%, moxifloxacin %S = 98.9%) (Table 1).
CONCLUSION: Trends indicate that SP penicillin resistance has slightly decreased,
Ciprofloxacin, for the purpose of comparison, differed from the respiratory fluoroquinolones with decreasing susceptibility rates of while resistance rates for AMX increased from 4.1% in 2003 to 9.1% in 2007. Increased 86.7% in 2005 to 82.0% in 2007 (Data on file). Since ciprofloxacin does not have CLSI breakpoints for S. pneumoniae, FDA
resistance to AZM and TET along with high MIC s indicate that continued use of breakpoints were used for the surveillance study.
macrolides and tetracyclines could be problematic. The activities of respiratory ratios for the respiratory fluoroquinolones (levofloxacin and moxifloxacin) exceeded 30 (the target PD ratio that fluoroquinolones remained high, and no trends that would indicate changes in activity correlates with clinical cure, microbiological eradication, and prevention of the emergence of resistance [Zhanel et al, JAC 2001;47:435]) (Table 3). Nearly identical AUC
were obtained for levofloxacin 750mg qd (71) and moxifloxacin 400mg qd BACKGROUND
(72) (Table 3). The ratio (7) of ciprofloxacin (500mg q12h) was < ¼ of the target PD (Table 3).

Empiric treatment is directed by patient location of oral CAP agents against S. pneumoniae 2003-2007 (outpatient vs inpatient), and likelihood of the involvement of drug resistant S. pneumoniae •Resistance rates to 4 common oral agents increased during the 5-year study period: azithromycin (32.3%), amoxicillin/clavulanate based on risk factors and local resistance data. The use of respiratory fluoroquinolones (9.1%), cefuroxime (18.5%), and tetracycline (18.8%). These increasing resistance trends for these agents suggest that caution should be Antimic robial

Previous studies of respiratory FQs have shown high activity against S. pneumoniae, and this study reviews data from the last 5 years (2003-2007) •Of the fluoroquinolones, levofloxacin and moxifloxacin provided pharmacodynamic activity above the target PD ratio of 30 (AUC comparing these agents with other recommended oral agents.

Ciprofloxacin is not recommended for the treatment of CAP by ATS/IDSA, and the PD ratio of 7 (higher Zhanel et al. Drugs. 2002;62:13-59.
