Small Molecule Potentiation of Gram-Positive Selective Antibiotics against Acinetobacter baumannii


By: S. Martin*, R. Melander*, C. Brackett n, A. Scott*, C. Chandler*, C. Nguyen n, B. Minrovic*, S. Harrill n ...

author keywords: antibiotic adjuvant; antibiotic resistance; Acinetobacter baumannii; macrolide antibiotics; glycopeptide antibiotics; lipopolysaccharide
MeSH headings : Acinetobacter Infections / drug therapy; Acinetobacter baumannii / drug effects; Animals; Anti-Bacterial Agents / administration & dosage; Anti-Bacterial Agents / pharmacology; Bacterial Outer Membrane / drug effects; Disease Models, Animal; Drug Resistance, Multiple, Bacterial / drug effects; Drug Synergism; Glycopeptides / administration & dosage; Glycopeptides / pharmacology; Macrolides / administration & dosage; Macrolides / pharmacology; Microbial Sensitivity Tests; Moths; Small Molecule Libraries / administration & dosage; Small Molecule Libraries / pharmacology
TL;DR: Two adjuvant compounds are identified that dramatically enhance sensitivity of Acinetobacter baumannii to macrolide and glycopeptide antibiotics, with reductions in minimum inhibitory concentrations as high as 256-fold, and mode of action studies indicate that these adjuvants likely work by modulating lipopolysaccharide synthesis or assembly.

Second generation modifiers of colistin resistance show enhanced activity and lower inherent toxicity

TETRAHEDRON, 72(25), 3549–3553.

By: C. Brackett n, R. Furlani n, R. Anderson n, A. Krishnamurthy n, R. Melander n, S. Moskowitz*, R. Ernst*, C. Melander

author keywords: Antibiotic adjuvant; 2-Aminoimidazole; Colistin; ESKAPE pathogens; Acinetobacter baumannii; Pseudomonas aeruginosa
TL;DR: From these libraries, a new small molecule was identified that lowers the minimum inhibitory concentration of colistin by up to 32-fold greater than the parent compound while also displaying less inherent bacterial effect, thereby minimizing the likelihood of resistance evolution.
