Abstract

SUMMARY: The nitro radical-anion of metronidazole has been detected in the sexually transmitted human parasite, , under anaerobic conditions by electron spin resonance spectrometry. Exposure of organisms to oxygen decreased the intensity of the radical signal in both metronidazole-sensitive ATCC strain 30001 and in the metronidazole-resistant strain 85. The sensitive strain still gave radical signals at partial pressures of oxygen (>6 kPa) sufficient to remove all detectable radicals from the resistant strain. This evidence suggests that the resistant strain has defective oxygen scavenging system(s).
