Abstract

The kinetics of bacterial killing for fidaxomicin and its major metabolite, OP-1118, were investigated against strains, including two clinical strains belonging to the restriction endonuclease analysis group BI (ORG 1687 and 1698), the ATCC 43255 strain and two laboratory-derived mutant strains with decreased susceptibility to fidaxomicin (ORG 919 and 1620). Both fidaxomicin and OP-1118 demonstrated time-dependent killing of strains. Fidaxomicin (at 4× MIC) reduced bacterial counts of the ATCC 43255 strain, clinical strain ORG 1687 and the two laboratory-generated mutant strains by ≥3 logs within 48 h of exposure. The other BI strain, ORG 1698, was tested at 2× MIC fidaxomicin with bacterial counts decreasing 1 log in 48 h. Exposure to OP-1118 (at 4× MIC) also resulted in a ≥3 log drop in c.f.u. counts for the ATCC 43255 strain, the clinical BI strain ORG 1687 and the mutant strain ORG 919. Higher concentrations of OP-1118 (32× MIC) were required for a 3 log reduction in c.f.u. counts for the other BI strain, ORG 1698. In summary, the results indicate that both fidaxomicin and its major metabolite, OP-1118, are bactericidal against strains, including the hypervirulent restriction endonuclease analysis group BI strains, at concentrations that are many fold below the detected faecal concentrations of these compounds after oral administration of fidaxomicin.
