UTI 101: Antimicrobial agents, duration and prophylaxis April 30, 2012 Jennifer J. Schimmel, MD Baystate Medical Center Division of Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship
Objectives Describe the agents used for treating bacterial urinary tract infections (UTI’s) and understand how to choose the most appropriate agent Understand the appropriate duration of therapy and monitoring Understand the options for prophylaxis of recurrent UTI
Background UTI is one of the most common infections in the elderly in the community and in long-term care Two problems: overdiagnosis and overtreatment Subsequent issues: – C. difficile – Antibiotic resistance What’s important? – Proper diagnosis – Appropriate antibiotic choice and duration
Defining the Problems Lower UTI: infection in bladder and/or urethra Uncomplicated UTI: lower UTI AND – Not pregnant – No urinary tract abnormalities – No indwelling urinary device Complicated UTI: – Upper UTI (systemic symptoms, extension beyond urethra/bladder) – Functional or structural urinary tract abnormality – UTI in men – Urinary catheter (CA-UTI) – Older female patients Many have functional or structural abnormalities
Most Common Organisms E.coli Other gram-negatives – Klebsiella pneumoniae – Proteus mirabilis Staphylococcus saprophyticus Enterococcus faecalis
Microbiology in Nursing Homes New Haven, CT 5 Nursing Homes May 2005-2007 551 patients, presumed UTI Das R et al. ICHE 2009;30(11):1116-1119.
Case 1 75 year old woman s/p recent vertebral fracture, in NH for past 2 weeks, no prior UTI’s Now several days of urinary frequency, urgency, burning No fevers or back pain U/a with significant pyuria Started empirically on ciprofloxacin
What to use empirically? Take into account most likely uropathogens Patient Factors – Other medications/interactions – Allergies – Other past infections – Other medical problems (renal insufficiency, C.diff, etc) Threshold for failure Local epidemiology Cost
Antibiogram Helps to determine best choices for empiric therapy
Antimicrobial Susceptibilities from Nursing Home Residents in New Haven, CT Das R et al. ICHE 2009;30(11):1116-1119.

Seeking the perfect antibiotic… Needs to get into urinary tract – And sometimes the prostate Treat specific organism Narrowest spectrum possible Minimize adverse effects Avoid drug interactions No allergy Compliance Cost Oral option?
Case 2 75 year old woman with well-controlled Crohn’s disease on mesalamine, admitted with syncopal event Found to have conduction abnormality Allergy to penicillin (unknown) Has pacemaker placed (perioperative Clindamycin) 2 days after procedure still has unexplained leukocytosis with WBC 13 no obvious source of infection, no urinary symptoms, no diarrhea, CXR unremarkable, u/a with 1 wbc
Case 2 Urine culture pending at the time of discharge to rehab What would be the next best step? A) Discharge on 5 days of Levofloxacin for possible UTI B) Follow off antibiotics C) Keep her in the hospital and repeat u/a tomorrow D) Treat with Ceftriaxone 1g IV and additional antibiotics base on culture data E) Treat with Tobramycin 5mg/kg and additional antibiotics based on culture data
Uncomplicated UTI: Lower Tract Gupta K et al. Clinical Infectious Diseases 2011;52(5):e103-120.
Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid, Macrodantin) Minimal “collateral” damage DRUG INTERACTIONS – Minimal – Concomitant administration of a magnesium trisilicate antacid may decrease the absorption of nitrofurantoin – Nitrofurantoin may reduce the effect of quinolone antibiotics – Fluconazole: increased risk of pulmonary and hepatic toxicity Avoid if creatinine clearance less than 60 – Due to potentiation of adverse effects Common side effects: nausea, headache Other serious adverse effects: – Peripheral neuropathy – Pulmonary hypersensitivity – Hepatoxicity – Decreased renal function – Hemolytic anemia
Fosfomycin Issues: – Minimal resistance – Minimal collateral damage – High urinary levels – Prolonged bactericidal effect – Minimal drug interactions – Not always available – Susceptibility data not routinely available – Role for treatment of resistant organisms such as ESBL’s, VRE, MRSA – Maybe less effective than other short-course regimens
Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole TMP/SMX (Bactrim) DRUG INTERACTIONS – Warfarin – Methotrexate – Fluconazole (incr QT) – TCA, antipsychotics, antiarrhythmics – Antihyperglycemics Common side effects: nausea, vomiting, rash Other serious adverse effects: – Bone marrow suppression – Hepatic necrosis – Severe rash – Hyperkalemia – Hypoglycemia (esp with renal and liver disease) Increased creatinine…may be falsely elevated
Quinolones: Ciprofloxacin and Levofloxacin Highly efficacious in a 3- day regimen Numerous issues with collateral damage: C.difficile and resistance Save for other uses Black Box Warning: tendonitis/tendon rupture esp. over age 60, steroids, transplant Interactions: – calcium, aluminum, magnesium, iron, and zinc (antacids, nutritional supplements, multivitamin and mineral supplements), sucralfate – Warfarin – Antihyperglycemics Other issues: – QT prolongation esp. in elderly – Decreased seizure threshold
Alternatives Amoxicillin-clavulanate Cefdinir (Omnicef) Cefpodoxime-proxetil (Vantin) Cefaclor (Ceclor) Not for empiric therapy due to poor efficacy and resistance: amoxicillin and ampicillin
Upper Tract Infection: Acute Pyelonephritis Not requiring hospitalization (and resistance less than 10%): – Ciprofloxacin 500mg PO BID for 7 days – Ciprofloxacin 1000mg ER for 7 days – Levofloxacin 750mg for 5 days – Bactrim DS BID for 14 days (if pathogen susceptible) – Alternative initial IV antibiotic: Ceftriaxone 1g IV or Aminoglycoside – Alternative: Oral -lactam (initial IV dose Ceftriaxone) and 10-14 days Hospitalized: – IV regimen: Fluoroquinolone Aminoglycoside +/- ampicillin 2 nd or 3 rd generation cephalosporin +/- aminoglycoside Extended spectrum penicillin +/- aminoglycoside Carbapenem Gupta K et al. Clinical Infectious Diseases 2011;52(5):e103-120.
Catheter-Associated UTI (CA-UTI) Most common health care-associated infection worldwide 40% of hospital-acquired infections 5-10% of LTCF residents with long-term indwelling catheters – Almost all have bacteriuria – Single organism in short-term catheter – Multiple organisms in long-term catheterization Hooton TM et al. Clinical Infectious Diseases 2010;50:625-663.
CA-UTI Duration: – Prompt resolution of symptoms: 7 days – Delayed response: 10-14 days – Not severely ill: 5 day Levofloxacin may be considered – Women aged 65 or under with CA-UTI and no upper tract symptoms, with removal of catheter: consider 3 days of therapy Other issues – De-escalation/narrowing of therapy as soon as possible – If catheter in place for >2 weeks and is still needed, catheter should be replaced More rapid resolution of symptoms Decrease risk of subsequent CA-bacteriuria and CA-UTI Hooton TM et al. Clinical Infectious Diseases 2010;50:625-663.

Recurrent UTI: Risk Factors Post-menopausal: – estrogen deficiency – urogenital surgery – incontinence, cystocele, post-void residuals Men: – Prostatic disease Both Men and Women: – Obstruction: stones, tumor Complicated UTI: – MDRO, obstruction, stasis, foley catheter, stent, diabetes, pregnancy, renal failure, transplant, immunosuppression Franco AV. Best Pract & Res Clin Obstet & Gynec 2005;19(6):861-73.
What else other than antibiotics? Fluids to promote a dilute urine flow Topical estrogen – In some postmenopausal women it can normalize the vaginal flora and reduce recurrent UTI Methenamine Adhesion blockers (D-mannose) – Not evaluated in clinical trials Drinking cranberry juice or cranberry tablets – Clinical Data Cochrane Review 2008 – Recent studies – Pilot Study in LTC

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare the time to urinary tract infection (UTI) and the rates of asymptomatic bacteriuria and urinary P-fimbriated Escherichia coli during a 6-month period in women ingesting cranberry vs placebo juice daily. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Premenopausal women with a history of recent UTI were enrolled from November 16, 2005, through December 31, 2008, at 2 centers and randomized to 1 of 3 arms: 4 oz of cranberry juice daily, 8 oz of cranberry juice daily, or placebo juice. Time to UTI (symptoms plus pyuria) was the main outcome. Asymptomatic bacteriuria, adherence, and adverse effects were assessed at monthly visits. RESULTS: A total of 176 participants were randomized (120 to cranberry juice and 56 to placebo) and followed up for a median of 168 days. The cumulative rate of UTI was 0.29 in the cranberry juice group and 0.37 in the placebo group (P=.82). The adjusted hazard ratio for UTI in the cranberry juice group vs the placebo group was 0.68 (95% confidence interval, 0.33-1.39; P=.29). The proportion of women with P-fimbriated urinary E coli isolates during the intervention phase was 10 of 23 (43.5%) in the cranberry juice group and 8 of 10 (80.0%) in the placebo group (P=.07). The mean dose adherence was 91.8% and 90.3% in the cranberry juice group vs the placebo group. Minor adverse effects were reported by 24.2% of those in the cranberry juice group and 12.5% in the placebo group (P=.07). CONCLUSION: Cranberry juice did not significantly reduce UTI risk compared with placebo. The potential protective effect we observed is consistent with previous studies and warrants confirmation in larger, well-powered studies of women with recurrent UTI. The concurrent reduction in urinary P-fimbriated E coli strains supports the biological plausibility of cranberry activity. Juthani-Mehta M et al.

Cranberry juice and Warfarin? Case reports of cranberry juice or cranberry sauce potentiating the effects of warfarin by elevating the INR Clinical trials evaluating this interaction have failed to demonstrate a significant effect on an INR +
What about for CA-UTI? Reduce indwelling catheter use Remove catheters the as soon as they are no longer clinically necessary Catheters – Care Insertion with aseptic technique/sterile equipment Closed drainage systems, with drainage bag and tube always below bladder level – Antimicrobial coating May delay onset of CA-bacteriuria in short-term Hooton TM et al. Clinical Infectious Diseases 2010;50:625-663.
What about for CA-UTI? Methenamine not recommended in long-term catheterization – Data unconvincing that it is effective – May be effective with intermittent catheterization and short-term catheterization (studied in specific population) Methenamine hippurate 1 g BID Methenamine mandelate 1g 4 times daily – And it may help to acidify urine when using these agents (Vit C?) Cranberry – 3/4 double-blind placebo controlled trials: no effect – Studies are poor, mostly negative Antimicrobial prophylaxis can reduce CA-ASB, but not CA-UTI – Not recommended because of cost, potential for adverse effects and development of antimicrobial resistance Hooton TM et al. Clinical Infectious Diseases 2010;50:625-663.
In Summary Decide if treatment is necessary Appropriate antibiotic and duration – Choice based on patient (allergies/comorbidities/prior history), epidemiologic factors, organism – Minimize adverse effects, minimize development of resistance, avoid C.difficile Narrowest spectrum possible If empiric therapy is more broad than needed, narrow after culture data Prophylaxis – Several options that do not affect antimicrobial resistance – Avoid antimicrobial agents if possible – If such an agent is chosen, would re-evaluate after several months
