The success of H. pylori eradication was higher in the lansoprazole-clarithromycin-metronidazole group than in the lansoprazole-clarithromycin-amoxicillin group (intention-to-treat analysis: 84% vs. 66%, P < 0.05: per protocol analysis: 93% vs. 76%, P < 0.05). Complete drug compliance was also better in the lansoprazole-clarithromycin-metronidazole group than in the lansoprazole-clarithromycin-amoxicillin group (77% vs. 52%, P < 0.05). Patients in the lansoprazole-clarithromycin-metronidazole group had a lower risk of acute renal failure than those in the lansoprazole-clarithromycin-amoxicillin group (2% vs. 18%, P < 0.05; relative risk, 0.128, 95% confidence interval, 0.016-0.979).

The currently recommended regimen in Japan is a proton pump inhibitor-based triple therapy with two of the antibiotics between clarithromycin, amoxicillin and metronidazole. However, recent years have witnessed a decrease in the rate of eradication due to antimicrobial resistance. Resistance mechanisms of H. pylori are explained by the occurrence of mutations in genomic genes, which may correspond to the 23S rRNA gene in clarithromycin, the pbp1A in amoxicillin, and the rdxA in metronidazole, gyrA in levofloxacin. The resistance of H. pylori strains to clarithromycin is currently estimated at about 30% in Japan, while the resistant rates to metoronidazole and amoxicillin are quite low. The resistant rates of each antibiotics may increase in future, so we need to observe those changes.

One hundred thirty-four duodenal ulcer patients with persisting H. pylori infection after first-line triple therapy were enrolled in a cross-over manner to receive either pantoprazole (40 mg twice daily), amoxicillin (1000 mg twice daily), and clarithromycin (500 mg) or ranitidine bismuth citrate (400 mg twice daily), metronidazole (250 mg twice daily), and clarithromycin (500 mg twice daily) for 7 days. Forty-one patients with failed second-line treatment were randomized to receive third-line quadruple therapies with pantoprazole + amoxicillin and tetracycline (500 mg four times daily) and either nitrofurantoin (100 mg three times daily) or bismuth subsalicylate (120 mg four times daily). Breath tests were performed 6 weeks after therapy. The delta(13)CO(2) values ( per thousand) after primary, secondary, and tertiary treatment were analyzed, and the correlation between pretreatment values and the rate of H. pylori eradication was assessed.

Protein binding of antibacterials in plasma and tissues has long been considered a component of their pharmacokinetic parameters, playing a potential role in distribution, excretion and therapeutic effectiveness. Since the beginning of the 'antibacterial era', this factor has been extensively analysed for all antibacterial classes, showing that wide variations of the degree of protein binding occur even in the same antibacterial class, as with beta-lactams. As the understanding of protein binding grew, the complexity of the binding system was increasingly perceived and its dynamic character described. Studies of protein binding of the fluoroquinolones have shown that the great majority of these drugs exhibit low protein binding, ranging from approximately 20 to 40% in plasma, and that they are bound predominantly to albumin. The potential role in pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics of binding of fluoroquinolones to plasma, tissue and intracellular proteins has been analysed, but it has not been established that protein binding has any significant direct or indirect impact on therapeutic effectiveness. Regarding the factors influencing the tissue distribution of antibacterials, physicochemical characteristics and the small molecular size of fluoroquinolones permit a rapid penetration into extravascular sites and intracellularly, with a rapid equilibrium being established between intravascular and extravascular compartments. The high concentrations of these drugs achieved in tissues, body fluids and intracellularly, in addition to their wide antibacterial spectrum, mean that fluoroquinolones have therapeutic effectiveness in a large variety of infections. The tolerability of quinolones has generally been reported as good, based upon long experience in using pefloxacin, ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin in clinical practice. Among more recently developed molecules, good tolerability has been reported for levofloxacin, moxifloxacin and gatifloxacin, but certain other new compounds have been removed from the market because of renal, hepatic and cardiac toxicity. To what extent the protein binding of fluoroquinolones can play a role in their tolerability is unclear. In terms of drug-drug interactions, the role of protein binding is questionable: several drug combinations can be responsible for toxicity, such as with beta-lactams, metronidazole, theophylline, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents or a series of drugs used for cardiac diseases, but protein binding does not seem to be involved in these interactions. In conclusion, protein binding of fluoroquinolones appears to be a complex phenomenon, but has no clear role in therapeutic effectiveness or toxicity.

Although no conclusive reports of this reaction exist, we think this is a case of C difficile colitis that appeared three days after valaciclovir was initiated. Colitis improved with metronidazole. Other causes of diarrhea were excluded, such as diabetes mellitus, renal failure, intestinal surgery and intestinal obstruction. Infection was confirmed by a positive test for C. difficile. The application of Naranjo's algorithm asserts the reaction as 'probable'.

Trichomonas vaginalis has long been recognized as a cause of infectious vaginitis in women. More recently, studies have demonstrated a significant burden of disease in men with urethritis or men at high risk for sexually transmitted diseases. There is increasing interest in this pathogen as more data accumulates linking it to HIV transmission and perinatal morbidity. New diagnostic methods have emerged that may increase sensitivity of diagnosis or improve point-of-care access to testing. Nitroimidazoles remain the mainstay of therapy. Metronidazole and tinidazole are highly effective as single-dose therapy. Unfortunately, despite the link between T. vaginalis infection and perinatal morbidity, nitroimidazole therapy during pregnancy remains controversial. Although metronidazole resistance is currently uncommon, pharmacological features and nitroimidazole resistance patterns suggest that tinidazole may be more effective in treating patients with metronidazole treatment failure. Alternatives to nitroimidazole therapy are few, and most have limited efficacy Generic Suprax Cefixime Tablet and significant toxicity.

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in nonhospitalized patients has been reported with increased frequency. An association Lopid Cost between CDI and pregnancy has not been stressed. This review will report 4 cases of peripartum CDI with characterization of the infecting strain and a literature review. A PubMed search identified 24 recorded cases of peripartum CDI; information was available for 14 cases. Most patients (91%) received prophylactic antibiotics during delivery or for treatment of bacterial infections (50%). All patients reported diarrhea. Two of our reported cases without known risk factors were found by polymerase chain reaction analysis to be infected with an epidemic and hypervirulent C difficile strain. These cases demonstrate the need for clinicians to consider CDI in patients with severe diarrhea, even if they do not have the traditional risk factors for CDI, such as antibiotic use or concurrent hospitalizations. Further research into the scope and risk factors for peripartum CDI is warranted.

Concern exists over recent unexplained deaths among intravenous drug users. This report describes a patient with crepitant cellulitis who was admitted complaining of severe pain in the right forearm. Ultrasonography demonstrated gas in the tissues and he was referred for early surgical debridement of the arm. He was treated with intravenous benzyl penicillin, gentamicin and metronidazole and made a full recovery. Aspirate samples grew Bacillus cereus, morphologically similar to the isolate obtained from a sample of the patient's own heroin. Antibiogram and API 50CHB profiles were also similar. Further typing included 'H' flagellar serotyping, which found both blood and heroin strains to be non-typable, and amplified fragment polymorphism analysis, which showed that the strains were indistinguishable. Genotyping of two selected genes from B. cereus confirmed almost certain identity between the two strains. This case illustrates the Biaxin Online potential virulence of B. cereus when inoculated into tissues, and to our knowledge, is the first report to demonstrate a conclusive microbiological link between contaminated heroin and serious sepsis in a drug user due to B. cereus.

Fixed drug eruption (FDE) causes cosmetic embarrassment in Nigerian patients, particularly when the characteristic hyperpigmented patches affect the face and lips. Drugs that have been implicated in the etiology of FDE, and the sites of lesions, may vary from country to country. Antimalarials, such as Fansidar, Fancimef, Maloxine, Amalar, and Metakelfin, were the most common offending agents, accounting for 38% of FDEs, followed by trimethoprim + sulfamethoxazole (co-trimoxazole) (28%), dipyrones (10%), Butazolidin (6%), thiacetazone (6%), metronidazole (4%), paracetamol (3%), and naproxen (3%). Lesions induced by the combination of sulfadoxine and pyrimethamine (in antimalarials) mainly involved the face and lips. In most cases, patients took these sulfa-containing antimalarials in combination with numerous other drugs, particularly analgesics. Unlike chloroquine-induced pruritus, which affects most Africans, the association between antimalarials and FDE has not been well documented in our region. Co-trimoxazole was associated more often than antimalarials with FDEs involving the mucocutaneous junctions of the genitalia and lips. Males with genital lesions on the glans penis represented 11 (48%) of those with co-trimoxazole hypersensitivity. The trunk and limbs were affected mainly by pyrazoles and Butazolidin, respectively; however, solitary lesions on the trunk were usually due to co-trimoxazole, whereas solitary lesions on the limbs were associated with Butazolidin.

The present study aimed at providing a new method in sight into short-wavelength near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy of in pharmaceutical quantitative analysis. To do that, 124 experimental samples of metronidazole powder were analyzed using artificial neural networks (ANNs) in the 780-1100 nm region of short-wavelength NIR spectra. In this paper, metronidazole was as active component and other two components (magnesium stearate and starch) were as excipients. Different preprocessing spectral data (first-derivative, second-derivative, standard normal variate (SNV) and multiplicative scatter correction (MSC)) were applied to establish the ANNs models of metronidazole powder. The degree of approximation, a new evaluation criterion of the networks was employed to prove the accuracy of the predicted results. The results presented here demonstrate that the short-wavelength NIR region is promising for the fast and reliable determination of major component in pharmaceutical analysis.

Pelvic infection complicates up to 12% of induced abortions and has an adverse effect on future reproductive outcome. The presence in the lower genital tract of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis or the anaerobic organisms characterizing bacterial vaginosis is associated with an increased risk of post-abortion infective morbidity. Meta-analysis of randomized trials has shown that prophylaxis with antibiotics effective against either C. trachomatis or bacterial vaginosis reduces the risk of post-abortion infective morbidity by around a half. Other strategies which have been advocated for minimizing the risk of infective morbidity are screening for lower genital tract infections, with treatment of positive cases only, and a combined strategy where women are screened for sexually transmitted infections as well as receiving prophylaxis. These strategies provide the opportunity for appropriate follow-up and partner notification of those women found to have sexually transmitted infections. A multicentre study designed to determine the prevalence of genital tract infections among Scottish women seeking induced abortion, and to compare strategies of 'universal prophylaxis' and 'screen and treat' for minimizing infective morbidity in such women has been undertaken. A total of 1672 women were recruited. Prevalence rates of lower genital tract gonorrhoea, chlamydia and bacterial vaginosis were found to be similar to those reported in other UK studies. Women managed by the 'screen and treat' strategy (particularly those whose genital tract swabs were reported negative) had slightly higher rates of infective morbidity in the 8 weeks after abortion than those managed by 'prophylaxis'. Using currently available screening tests and genitourinary medicine services, 'prophylaxis' appears to be the more cost effective of the two strategies studied.
