The management of the wound at the time of colostomy closure has been controversial, and wound infection is a frequently cited complication of this procedure. We have conducted a prospective randomized study of colostomy wound closure in 105 patients with three study groups: (1) primary closure (n = 38); (2) primary closure with subcutaneous drains (n = 29); and (3) delayed primary closure (n = 38). All patients had mechanical bowel preparation with whole gut lavage as well as oral neomycin sulfate/erythromycin estolate and perioperative parenteral cefazolin sodium (Ancef). Five wound infections (4.8%) occurred. Three infections were in the delayed primary closure group and one infection in each of the other two study groups. No statistical difference in wound infection was demonstrated. On the basis of the findings in this study, we would not recommend delayed primary closure for the management of colostomy closure wounds when careful mechanical and antibiotic preparation has been utilized.

The use of antibiotics in pregnancy requires that the clinician consider both toxicity to and pharmacokinetics for mother and fetus. Although most adverse reactions to antibiotics in the adult are not modified by pregnancy, those to tetracycline and erythromycin estolate are the exceptions. Tetracycline is contraindicated throughout pregnancy because of fetal effects, whereas sulfa preparations, trimethoprim, and chloramphenicol are contraindicated only at specific times during gestation. The pharmacokinetics of antibiotics in the mother are such that lower serum concentrations are achieved for a given dose, which may be important in serious or resistant infections. Fetal kinetics are such that transfer to amniotic fluid and distribution within the fetus may not provide adequate protection for the fetus in cases of chorioamnionitis.

To determine the importance of Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Chlamydia pneumoniae in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) of children from different latitudes and to compare clinical outcome using azithromycin (AZM) versus either amoxicillin-clavulanate (A-C) or erythromycin estolate (EE).

There was no difference in the development of respiratory tract symptoms compatible with a case definition of pertussis in the erythromycin- and placebo-treated groups. There were 20 households with secondary culture-positive cases of pertussis; 4 households in the erythromycin-treated group and 15 in the placebo-treated group (efficacy of erythromycin chemoprophylaxis for bacterial eradication 67.5% [95% confidence interval: 7.6-88.7]). However, medication-associated adverse reactions were reported by 34.0% of erythromycin and 15.7% of placebo recipients.

To investigate the mechanisms of erythromycin cholestasis, the effects of erythromycin estolate (EE) on the excretory function of the isolated perfused rat liver and on liver plasma membrane (LM) preparations were studied and compared to those of erythromycin base (EB) and lauryl sulfate (LS), added alone or in combination. EE (at 125 to 200 microM) caused dose-dependent reductions of bile and perfusate flows, bile acid (BA) excretion, and biliary BA concentration. The alterations of the excretory function were only in part due to the decreased perfusate flow. In contrast, both 200 and 300 microM concentrations of EB elicited similar choleretic responses, which were presumably related to the osmotic activity of the drug excreted in the bile. LS did not affect hepatic excretory functions. However, the simultaneous addition of EB and LS resulted in a rate of bile flow lower than that observed with EB alone. EE, but not EB, increased canalicular permeability to [14C]sucrose as measured by bile to plasma (B:P) ratio. Neither drugs altered [14C]erythritol B:P ratio. In LM preparations both Na+,K+- and Mg2+-ATPase activities were inhibited in a dose-dependent manner by EE, but not by EB. The data suggest that EE could affect bile flow by inhibiting cotransport of Na+ and BA and by altering LM permeability and support the view that the effect of erythromycins on the liver may be related to their surface activity.

Primary cultures of rat hepatocytes were used to study the effects of the flavonoids diosmin and its main metabolite diosmetin on the cell membrane damage caused by erythromycin estolate (EE) and oxidative stress caused by tert-butylhydroperoxide (TBHP). The damage was evaluated by the leakage of intracellular enzymes lactate dehydrogenase, aspartate-aminotransferase and the residual cell content of a lysosomal marker acid phosphatase (AP). After treating the cells for 40 h with diosmetin EE induced less enzyme leakage. The content of AP was kept higher by diosmetin pretreatment after 6 h exposure to EE. Diosmin at the same concentrations had barely any effect. Diosmetin, but not diosmin, also protected against TBHP toxicity and this was related to lower lipid peroxidation and higher glutathione content caused by pretreatment with the flavonoid. When the cells were treated simultaneously with TBHP and diosmetin after 21 h of culture, the protection by the flavonoid was even higher. In fact the antioxidant activity of diosmetin was considerably greater than that of diosmin. After 40 h exposure to both flavonoids diosmin but not diosmetin was detectable in the cell membrane fraction, suggesting that the latter's protective effect is associated with its metabolites.

One hundred five Staphylococcus aureus infections occurring in 79 children who were seen in a private office practice were evaluated for response to antibiotic therapy. The value of in vitro disk susceptibility testing in directing antibiotic selection in treatment failures was also examined. Of the total episodes studied, the types of infection studied included vesicular pyoderma (48%), secondary pyoderma (13%), bullous pyoderma (5%), furunculosis (14%), carbunculosis (12%), cellulitis (3%), suppurative otitis media (4%), and paronychia (2%). Comparative treatment efficacy was obtained with perioral erythromycin estolate and erythromycin ethylsuccinate, cefaclor and cephalexin, and clindamycin hydrochloride and dicloxacillin sodium. Penicillin V potassium, ampicillin, and topical bacitracin were generally ineffective. In 23 patients, 27/105 infections were initial treatment failures. Antibiotic disk susceptibility testing predicted these clinical failures and/or the antibiotic that would produce a clinical response in 21 of these 23 patients, suggesting that this office procedure can be of considerable value.
