Gepotidacin for the Treatment of Uncomplicated Urogenital Gonorrhea: A Phase 2, Randomized, Dose-Ranging, Single-Oral Dose Evaluation

Clinical Infectious Diseases August 15, 2018 V.67 N.4 P.505-512

In this phase 2 study, single oral doses of gepotidacin were ≥95% effective for bacterial eradication in culture-proven uncomplicated urogenital gonorrhea. New antibiotics for drug-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae are urgently needed. With additional evaluation, gepotidacin may provide an alternative therapeutic option.

Using social network analysis to construct an ego network around a hospital that experienced an outbreak of a rare carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, we accurately predicted which hospitals outbreak patients would subsequently visit and, therefore, the hospitals that reported additional cases.

We found no difference in occurrence of chronic Q-fever between patients with or without a newly detected valvulopathy at time of acute Q-fever diagnosis. Thus, universal screening is not justified and would lead to unnecessary and undesirable long-term antibiotic use.

EDITOR’S CHOICE

Sharon L Reed; James H McKerrow

Neglected tropical diseases affect >1 billion of the world’s poorest persons. Control programs range from near-elimination (dracunculiasis) to increasing prevalence (dengue and cutaneous leishmaniasis). These are some of the most cost-effective public health interventions and should be a global priority.
