Claims for Patent: 6,455,540

Title: Methods of use of quinolone compounds against anaerobic pathogenic bacteria
Abstract:This invention relates, in part, to newly identified methods of using quinolone antibiotics, particularly a gemifloxacin compound against pathogenic bacteria, especially anaerobic pathogens.
Inventor(s): Citron; Diane M. (Santa Monica, CA), Goldstein; Ellie J. C. (Santa Monica, CA)
Assignee: SmithKline Beecham Corporation (Philadelphia, PA)
Application Number:09/976,323
Patent Claims: 1. A method of treating or preventing a bacterial infection by anaerobic pathogenic bacteria comprising the step of administering an antibacterially effective amount of a composition comprising a gemifloxacin compound, or an antibacterially effective derivative thereof, to a mammal suspected of having or being at risk of having an infection with anaerobic pathogenic bacteria, said anaerobic pathogenic bacteria being selected from the group consisting of a member of the genus Actinomyces, a member of the genus Anaerobiospirillum, and a member of the genus Bilophila.

2. A method of treating or preventing a bacterial infection by anaerobic pathogenic bacteria comprising the step of administering an antibacterially effective amount of a composition comprising a gemifloxacin compound, or an antibacterially effective derivative thereof, to a mammal suspected of having or being at risk of having an infection with anaerobic pathogenic bacteria, said anaerobic pathogenic bacteria being selected from the group consisting of Peptostreptococci asaccharolyticus, Peptostreptococci magnus, Peptostreptococci micros, Peptostreptococci prevotii, Porphyromonas asaccharolytica, Porphyromonas canons, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Porphyromonas macaccae, Actinomyces israeli, Actinomyces odontolyticus, Clostridium innocuum, Clostridium clostridioforme, Bacteroides tectum, Bacteroides ureolyticus, Bacteroides gracilis (Campylobacter gracilis), Prevotella intermedia, Prevotella heparinolytica, Fusobacterium naviforme, Fusobacterium ulcerans, Fusobacterium russii, and Bilophila wadsworthia.

3. The method according to claim 2 wherein said anaerobic pathogenic bacteria is selected from the group consisting of Porphyromonas asaccharolytica, Porphyromonas canoris, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Porphyromonas macaccae, Actinomyces israeli, Actinomyces odontolyticus, and Bilophila wadsworthia.

4. The method according to claim 2 wherein said anaerobic pathogenic bacteria is selected from the group consisting of Actinomyces israelii, Actinomyces odontolyticus, and Bilophila wadsworthia.

5. The method according to claim 1 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

6. The method according to claim 2 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

7. The method according to claim 3 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

8. The method according to claim 4 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

9. The method according to claim 1 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin mesylate or a hydrate thereof.

10. The method according to claim 2 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin mesylate or a hydrate thereof.

11. The method according to claim 3 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin mesylate or a hydrate thereof.

12. The method according to claim 4 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin mesylate or a hydrate thereof.

13. The method according to claim 1 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin mesylate sesquihydrate.

14. The method according to claim 2 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin mesylate sesquihydrate.

15. The method according to claim 3 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin mesylate sesquihydrate.

16. The method according to claim 4 wherein the gemifloxacin compound is gemifloxacin mesylate sesquihydrate.

17. The method according to claim 1 wherein said mammal is a human.

18. The method according to claim 2 wherein said mammal is a human.

19. The method according to claim 3 wherein said mammal is a human.

20. The method according to claim 4 wherein said mammal is a human.
