Immunochemical Prophylaxis against Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Part of the Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis book series (IAPA)


Healthy people are rarely infected by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Consequently, serious P. aeruginosa infections are rarely community-acquired. However, in the hospital setting, P. aeruginosa causes about 7–15% of life-threatening bacterial infections such as bacteremia and pneumonia.1–5 In cystic fibrosis (CF), P. aeruginosa is the predominant pathogen.6,7P. aeruginosa merits special attention as a common bacterial nosocomial pathogen, for the mortality rate is significantly higher than that seen in infections caused by other common gram-negative bacilli and staphylococci.8–10 Thus, in the host compromised by extreme youth or age, trauma, cancer, immunosuppressive therapy, or mechanical ventilation, P. aeruginosa can be a highly virulent pathogen.1,2,8–10 In the compromised patient P. aeruginosa has several attributes that contribute to its high virulence. P. aeruginosa is innately less sensitive than other common gram-negative bacilli to modern antimicrobials such as semisynthetic penicillins, third-generation cephalosporins, aminoglycosides, and fluorinated carboxyquinolones.11–15 Resistance can emerge during anti-microbial therapy, resulting in treatment failure.16–20 Also, it is insensitive to frequently used agents such as trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, tetracycline, ampicillin, and first-and second-generation cephalosporins. The use of theselatter oral antimicrobials for infection prophylaxis profoundly alters normal flora and can promote colonization of the host.21–23
