Colchicine poisoning presents in three sequential and usually overlapping phases: 1) 10-24 h after ingestion - gastrointestinal phase mimicking gastroenteritis may be absent after intravenous administration; 2) 24 h to 7 days after ingestion - multi-organ dysfunction. Death results from rapidly progressive multi-organ failure and sepsis. Delayed presentation, pre-existing renal or liver impairment are associated with poor prognosis. 3) Recovery typically occurs within a few weeks of ingestion, and is generally a complete recovery barring complications of the acute illness.

We previously reported that the macrolide antibiotic clarithromycin (CAM) enhanced the mucosal immune response in pediatric influenza, particularly in children treated with the antiviral neuraminidase inhibitor oseltamivir (OSV) with low production of mucosal antiviral secretory IgA (S-IgA). The aims of the present study were to confirm the effects of CAM on S-IgA immune responses, by using influenza A virus (IAV) H1N1-infected mice treated with or without OSV, and to determine the molecular mechanisms responsible for the induction of mucosal IgA class switching recombination in IAV-infected CAM-treated mice. The anti-IAV S-IgA responses and expression levels of IgA class switching recombination-associated molecules were examined in bronchus-lymphoid tissues and spleens of infected mice. We also assessed neutralization activities of S-IgA against IAV. Data show that CAM enhanced anti-IAV S-IgA induction in the airway of infected mice and restored the attenuated antiviral S-IgA levels in OSV-treated mice to the levels in the vehicle-treated mice. The expression levels of B-cell-activating factor of the tumor necrosis factor family (BAFF) molecule on mucosal dendritic cells as well as those of activation-induced cytidine deaminase and Iμ-Cα transcripts on B cells were enhanced by CAM, compared with the levels without CAM treatment, but CAM had no effect on the expression of the BAFF receptor on B cells. Enhancement by CAM of neutralization activities of airway S-IgA against IAV in vitro and reinfected mice was observed. This study identifies that CAM enhances S-IgA production and neutralizing activities through the induction of IgA class switching recombination and upregulation of BAFF molecules in mucosal dendritic cells in IAV-infected mice.

The prevalence of antimicrobial drug resistance is now so high that all patients infected with Helicobacter pylori should be considered as having resistant infections. Ideally, therapy should be based on pretreatment antibiotic-susceptibility testing but this strategy is not currently practical. At present, clarithromycin-containing triple therapies do not reliably produce a > or =80% cure rate on an intention-to-treat basis and are, therefore, no longer acceptable as empiric therapy. In this Review, we discuss concepts of resistance that have become part of mainstream thinking for other infectious diseases but have not yet become so with regard to H. pylori. We also put data on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the drugs used in H. pylori therapy and the effect of host cytochrome P450 genotypes in context with treatment outcomes. Our primary focus is to address the problem of H. pylori resistance from a novel perspective, which also attempts to anticipate the direction that research will need to take to provide clinicians with reliable approaches to this serious infection. We also discuss current therapies that provide acceptable cure rates when used empirically (i.e. sequential therapy; four-drug, three-antibiotic, non-bismuth-containing 'concomitant' therapy; and bismuth-containing quadruple therapy) and how they might be further improved.

A tri-therapy regimen given for 7 days combining a double-dosed proton pump inhibitor, amoxicillin (2 g/d), and clarithromycin (0.5 g b.i.d) is used to eradicate H. pylori. With this regimen, the mean rate of eradication achieved in France is 67%. The principal causes of failure are poor compliance and bacterial resistance to clarithromycin. Metronidazole (1 g/d) can be used for patients allergic to penicillin. A second cycle can be prescribed in case of failure, substituting metronidazole for clarithromycin.

Additionally, there are newer data emphasizing the potential cardiotoxicity of azithromycin, particularly among patients at high risk. All of these data indicate that azithromycin should not be part of the standard empiric treatment for HCAP.

Randomized controlled study.

biaxin 500mg medication

In this multi-centre, open-label, randomised controlled trial, 544 patients with early gastric cancer, either newly diagnosed and planning to have endoscopic treatment or in post-resection follow-up after endoscopic treatment, were randomly assigned to receive an H pylori eradication regimen (n=272) or control (n=272). Randomisation was done by a computer-generated randomisation list and was stratified by whether the patient was newly diagnosed or post-resection. Patients in the eradication group received lansoprazole 30 mg twice daily, amoxicillin 750 mg twice daily, and clarithromycin 200 mg twice daily for a week; those in the control group received standard care, but no treatment for H pylori. Patients were examined endoscopically at 6, 12, 24, and 36 months after allocation. The primary endpoint was diagnosis of new carcinoma at another site in the stomach. Analyses were by intention to treat. This trial is registered with the UMIN Clinical Trials Registry, number UMIN000001169.

These data suggest that the eradication rate of H. pylori with PCA or RCA treatment is lower in patients with type 2 diabetes than in nondiabetics and that successful eradication could decrease dyspeptic symptoms.

Mycobacterium abscessus is a rapidly growing mycobacterium found mainly in patients with respiratory or cutaneous infections, but it rarely causes disseminated infections. Little is known about the clinical characteristics, treatment, and prognosis of disseminated M abscessus infection. A 75-year-old Japanese woman who had been treated for 17 years with a corticosteroid for antisynthetase syndrome with antithreonyl-tRNA synthetase antibody developed swelling of her right elbow. X-ray of her right elbow joint showed osteolysis, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed fluid in her right elbow joint. M abscessus grew in joint fluid and blood cultures. She was diagnosed with a disseminated M abscessus infection following septic arthritis. Antimicrobial treatment by clarithromycin, amikacin, and imipenem/cilastatin combined with surgical debridement was administered. Although blood and joint fluid cultures became negative 1 week later, the patient died at 6 weeks from starting antimicrobial treatment. We reviewed 34 cases of disseminated M abscessus infections from the literature. Most of the patients had immunosuppressive backgrounds such as transplantation, use of immunosuppressive agents, hematological malignancy, and end stage renal disease. The duration from onset of symptoms to diagnosis was over 3 months in half of the cases. All fatal cases had positive blood cultures or use of immunosuppressive agents. Clinicians should bear in mind that mycobacterial infections including M abscessus are one of the differential diagnoses in patients with subacute arthritis and soft tissue infections.

All patients with M massiliense disease had sputum conversion during treatment, whereas 50% of patients with M abscessus disease had sputum conversion. The most common CT findings of M massiliense disease at presentation were cellular bronchiolitis (n = 34, 100%), bronchiectasis (n = 34, 100%), consolidation (n = 33, 97%), nodules (n = 32, 94%), and cavities (n = 15, 44%). These findings were similar in M abscessus disease. Thirty (88%) patients with M massiliense disease had decrease in overall CT score at 12-month therapy, whereas only eight (33%) patients with M abscessus disease had a decrease (P < .0001). Improvement was noticeable in cellular bronchiolitis and cavity in M massiliense disease.

Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) has been implicated as an etiological agent of Crohn's disease (CD), a debilitating chronic inflammatory bowel disease. Clarithromycin (CLA), clofazimine (CLO), rifabutin (RIF) and other antibiotics have been used individually or in combinations with other drugs to treat mycobacterial diseases including CD. The Crestor Medication Price treatment has varied by regimen, dosage, and duration, resulting in conflicting outcomes and additional suffering to the patients. RHB-104, a drug formula with active ingredients composed of (63.3 %) CLA, (6.7 %) CLO, and (30 %) RIF, has been recently subjected to investigation in an FDA approved Phase III clinical trial to treat patients with moderate to severe CD. In this study, we determined the efficacy of RHB-104 active ingredients against MAP strains isolated from the blood, tissue, and milk of CD patients. Based on fluorescence quenching technology using the Bactec MGIT Para-TB medium, we determined the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of CLA, CLO, RIF individually and in dual and triple combinations against 16 MAP clinical strains and 19 other mycobacteria.

Lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) is one of the major health problems in developing countries such as Indonesia. According to the National Household Zithromax Dosage Pediatric Health Survey conducted by the Ministry of Health in 1992, LRTIs still rank fourth as the main cause of death in Indonesia. The problem of LRTIs could be simply managed as long as the causative organism can be identified and the proper antibiotic known. In some occasions, it is not quite so easy to identify the causative micro-organism, especially in lower tract infections. There are several methods of obtaining specimens from LRTIs for cultures. The easiest, most simple way is to collect expectorated sputum. Unfortunately, because of the high rate of contamination by upper respiratory tract flora, this method is not reliable. Recognizing the difficulties with routine expectorated sputum cultures, two alternative approaches have been suggested. One approach is to bypass potential expectorated sputum 'contaminants' in the oropharynx by transtracheal aspiration or transthoracic aspiration. The second approach is to modify the usual technique of processing expectorated sputum by either washing techniques or by quantitative cultures. Azithromycin and clarithromycin are chemically related to macrolide erithromycin. Both antibiotics retain the traditional macrolide spectrum of activity against gram-positive and atypical pneumonia pathogens, while demonstrating improved activity against gram-negative bacteria. The American Thoracic Society (ATS) recommended the use of macrolide for outpatients with community-acquired pneumonia, without comorbidity and 60 years of age or younger. A total of 34 outpatients with acute LRTIs were open-comparative, randomly allocated to treatment with the new macrolide in Persahabatan Hospital, Jakarta, 1996. The purposes of this study were: (i) to identify the causative micro-organisms; and (ii) to evaluate the clinical efficacy of the new macrolide in these infections. Azithromycin 500 mg was given orally once a day for 3 days and was administered 1 h before or 2 h after every meal. Clarithromycin 500 mg was given orally every 12 h for 10 days. The diagnosis of the patients were: 16 with pneumonia, 10 with acute bronchitis and 8 with acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. In this study of 34 patients, the sputum specimens were washed with N acetylcysteine before culture and we could only detect micro-organisms in one patient. Before treatment, we found 47 strains in 33 (97.05%) patients and after treatment we found five strains. From serological examination, only four (11.76%) atypical bacterial were detected. The most frequently found microorganisms were 23 strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae (40.42%), 10 of Streptococcus alpha haemolyticus (21.26%), five of Streptococcus pneumoniae (10.63%) and five of Staphylococcus aureus (10.63%). The atypical bacterial were: two Legionella pneumophila, one Mycoplasma pneumoniae and one Chlamydia pneumoniae. The clinical efficacy of new macrolides were 100% and the bacteriological responses with eradication of 94.12% vs 70.59% of isolates in the azithromycin and clarithromycin groups are shown in Table 1. There were no adverse reactions detected in the two treatment groups until the end of the study.

Moxifloxacin (MXF) has in vitro and in vivo activity against Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) in experimental models. However, no data are available concerning its treatment effect in patients with MAC lung disease. The aim of this study Aldactone Reviews was to evaluate the clinical efficacy of an MXF-containing regimen for the treatment of refractory MAC lung disease. Patients with MAC lung disease who were diagnosed between January 2002 and December 2011 were identified from our hospital database. We identified 41 patients who received MXF for ≥ 4 weeks for the treatment of refractory MAC lung disease. A total of 41 patients were treated with an MXF-containing regimen because of a persistent positive culture after at least 6 months of clarithromycin-based standardized antibiotic therapy. The median duration of antibiotic therapy before MXF administration was 410 days (interquartile range [IQR], 324 to 683 days). All patients had culture-positive sputum when MXF treatment was initiated. The median duration of MXF administration was 332 days (IQR, 146 to 547 days). The overall treatment success rate was 29% (12/41), and the median time to sputum conversion was 91 days (IQR, 45 to 190 days). A positive sputum acid-fast-bacillus smear at the start of treatment with MXF-containing regimens was an independent predictor of an unfavorable microbiological response. Our results indicate that MXF may improve treatment outcomes in about one-third of patients with persistently culture-positive MAC lung disease who fail to respond to clarithromycin-based standardized antibiotic treatment. Prospective studies are required to assess the clinical efficacy of MXF treatment for refractory MAC lung disease.

Virtually all duodenal ulcers (DUs) and the vast majority of gastric ulcers (GUs) are the consequence of Helicobacter pylori-associated inflammation. In DUs, the inflammation is maximal in the antrum and is associated with gastric metaplasia in the bulb. Gastrin homeostasis is disturbed by H. pylori gastritis and there is robust acid secretion. Successful eradication of the infection cures the ulcer diathesis. Amalgamated figures for ulcer relapse per year in H. pylori-positive DUs are > 60% compared with 2.6% for H. pylori-negative DU patients. The corresponding figures for GU are > 50% for H. pylori-positive and 2.0% for H. pylori-negative individuals. This striking difference in relapse rate persists, as the re-infection rate in the developed world is < 1% per year. Recurrent bleeding in bleeding-prone DUs is essentially abolished after cure of the infection. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are increasingly used in eradication regimens. PPIs have intrinsic antimicrobial activity. MICs for Imdur Generic Drugs lansoprazole (LAN) are lower than for omeprazole (OME). Two weeks of triple therapy (bismuth, tetracycline, imidazole) has, on average, a superior eradication efficacy (> or = 90%) compared with dual therapy (PPI, amoxycillin or clarithromycin) (> or = 80%). When a combination of PPI and two antibiotics has been used, results comparable to triple therapy have been reported. However, the side-effects profile and patient acceptability of PPI plus one or two antibiotic regimens are better than for traditional triple therapy.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

There is a general concern about the use of multisource (generic) antibacterials in the clinical setting with registration based solely on bioequivalence data. In order to address this concern, two modified-release formulations of clarithromycin (i.e. the originator Klacid XL and the generic Klarithran MR) were compared in patients with acute community-acquired respiratory tract infections.

Mechanical ventilation can promote lung injury by triggering a pro-inflammatory response. Macrolides may exert some immunomodulatory effects and have shown significant benefits over other antibiotics in ventilated patients. We hypothesized that macrolides could decrease ventilator-induced lung injury.
