Cefpodoxime proxetil (RU 51 807) is the oral prodrug of cefpodoxime (RU 51 763), a third generation cephalosporin. The antibacterial activity of cefpodoxime was compared with the activities of amoxicillin in combination with clavulanic acid (AUG), cefaclor (CCl), cefuroxime (CXM) and cefotaxime (CTX), against species of Enterobacteriaceae showing a resistance pattern against ampicillin (AMP), ticarcillin (TIC), cefalothin (CFT) and cefotaxime (CTX) respectively. For strains AMP and TIC R, CFT and CTX S, MICs 90% of cefpodoxime were 1 mg/l (E. coli), 0.5 (K. pneumoniae), 0.06 (P. mirabilis), 0.5 (Shigella sp.) and 1 (Salmonella sp.); they were 4 to 16 times as high for AUG -CCL -CXM and 4 to 16 times as low for CTX. For K. pneumoniae AMP and TIC R, CFT I/R and CTX S, similar résults were obsereved for the 5 beta-lactam antibiotics, but with an activity 10 times as low. Among the species AMP R, TIC S, CFT R and CTX S, cefpodoxime was active against P. rettgeri, P. stuartii, C. diversus, E. aerogenes and Y. enterocolitica (MICs 90% ranging from 2 to 4 mg/l; from 0.12 to 1 mg/l for CTX) and less active or inactive against P. vulgaris, E. cloacae, S. marcescens, M. morganii and E. coli (MICs 90% ranged from 16 to 32 mg/l; from 1 to 4 mg/l for CTX).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

In this multicenter, observer-blinded study, 301 patients with signs and symptoms of acute bacterial exacerbation of COPD were randomized (2:1) to receive either cefpodoxime proxetil (200 mg, bid) or cefaclor (250 mg, tid) for 10 days. Clinical and microbiologic evaluations were performed before treatment, during therapy (study days 3 to 5), at the end of therapy (3 to 7 days posttreatment), and at long-term follow-up (4 weeks posttreatment). The most common pretreatment isolates were Haemophilus influenzae, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, and Streptococcus pneumoniae. Significantly (p < 0.001) more bacterial isolates were susceptible in vitro to cefpodoxime (233 of 256, 91 percent) than to cefaclor (215 of 255, 84 percent). There were no statistically significant differences between the two drug regimens in eradication of the initial pathogen (cefpodoxime, 116 of 128, 91 percent; cefaclor, 59 of 64, 92 percent) or end-of-therapy clinical response (cure + proved; cefpodoxime, 99 of 100, 99 percent; cefaclor, 45 of 49, 92 percent) rates for evaluable patients. Both drug treatments were well-tolerated, with a similar incidence of drug-related adverse events (cefpodoxime 11 percent, cefaclor 12 percent). Cefpodoxime (bid) was as safe and effective as cefaclor (tid) in the treatment of acute exacerbation of COPD. The less frequent dosing regimen of cefpodoxime may improve patient compliance compared to those antibiotics that require three or four daily doses.

The value of MIC90 s cefdinir against these bacterial strains except penicillin non-sensitive pneumococci were 0.031-1 mg/L. Cefpodoxime held similar antibacterial activity with cefdinir, but was less potent against staphylococci. Cefaclor had much higher MIC values than other two drugs. After oral administration of 250 mg cefaclor, the drug concentration quickly reached peak concentration of 4.95 mg/L +/- 2.41 mg/L and the eliminative half time was 0.69 h +/- 0.6 h; the Tmax, Cmax and T1/2beta of cefdinir and cefpodoxime after oral administration of 100 mg were 2.5 h +/- 0.48 h, 0.81 mg/L +/- 0.19 mg/L, 1.73 h +/- 0.3 h and 2.38 h +/- 0.43 h, 1.12 mg/L +/- 0.28 mg/L, 1.92 h +/- 0.55 h, respectively. T > MIC of cefdinir in thrice daily administration were longer than 40% of medication interval against most of the tested isolates; no T > MIC period was found in cefpodoxime against staphylococci and the T > MICs of cefaclor after 250 mg oral administration were shorter than expected values against most bacteria.

The pharmacokinetic, economic and practical aspects of sequential therapy with iv and oral cephalosporins are reviewed. New broad spectrum oral cephalosporins, such as cefixime, cefpodoxime proxetil and cefetamet pivoxil achieve serum concentrations above the MICs for most Enterobacteriaceae for at least as long as for parenteral cefuroxime. Substantial cost reductions are possible with an early switch from iv to oral cephalosporins. The clinical studies that have been performed so far have important shortcomings. Well designed clinical studies are necessary to prove the feasibility of sequential therapy with cephalosporins for serious infections in hospitalized patients.

We compared the effects of nifedipine and diltiazem on the uptake of cefpodoxime proxetil (CP). The study was aimed at establishing the impact of increased mesenteric blood flow due to calcium channel blockers on passive transport. Twelve volunteers were given CP (200 mg) orally in a crossover design. The absorption, disposition, and elimination parameters of cefpodoxime were compared among the following three treatment groups: CP alone, CP following oral administration of diltiazem (60 mg), or CP following oral administration of nifedipine (20 mg). No statistically significant difference in pharmacokinetic parameters was observed between the three treatment groups.

A patient with a recent history of cefpodoxime proxetil treatment presented with elevated serum creatinine, oliguria, nausea, vomiting, and dyspnea. Evidence of renal failure, abnormal urinalysis, and renal biopsy with inflammatory infiltrate in the interstitium confirmed a diagnosis of AIN. The patient subsequently developed IHA, which was confirmed by peripheral blood smear results and positive Coombs' test. The patient recovered after dialysis therapy and 2 days of intravenous methylprednisolone (500mg/day) followed by oral prednisolone (60 mg/day), which was rapidly tapered and stopped within 3 weeks.

vantin drug interactions

A simple, selective and precise thin-layer chromatographic method has been developed for the analysis of eight cephalosporin antibiotics, namely cephadroxil, cephalexin, cefixime, cefaclor, cefpodoxime proxetil, cefuroxime axetil, cefotaxime sodium and ceftriaxone sodium. The hR(F) values of these cephalosporins were investigated on silica gel G-zinc ferrocyanide layers. Mixing of zinc ferrocyanide with silica gel G resulted in a decrease in hR(F) values, removal of tailing and better resolutions. The influence of silica gel G-zinc ferrocyanide ratio and mobile phases on the chromatographic behavior of cephalosporins on thin layers was investigated. Cephalosporins were selectively separated in their binary and ternary synthetic mixtures and pharmaceutical formulations. Quantitative separations of cephalosporins from their synthetic mixtures were also achieved with good recoveries (97.8-100.3%).

Cefpodoxime proxetil is the orally absorbed ester of cefpodoxime, a new third generation cephalosporin. In the gastrointestinal tract, cefpodoxime proxetil is hydrolysed to cefpodoxime, which has potent antibacterial activity against the major bacterial pathogens involved in lower respiratory tract infections: Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis (including beta-lactamase-producing strains), and Streptococcus pneumoniae (including amoxicillin-resistant strains). Six randomised comparative studies in patients with lower respiratory tract infections, 5 of which were large (enrollment of more than 200 patients) and double-blind, examined the efficacy and safety of cefpodoxime proxetil. Cefpodoxime proxetil (at a dosage equivalent to 200mg of cefpodoxime) administered twice daily for 5 to 10 days was similar in clinical and bacteriological efficacy to the following: amoxicillin 500mg 3 times daily in the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia; intramuscular ceftriaxone Ig once daily in the treatment of pulmonary infections in hospitalised patients; and to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid 500/125mg 3 times daily in the treatment of acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis (AECB). Additionally, a dosage equivalent to 100mg or 200mg of cefpodoxime twice daily was similar in clinical and bacteriological efficacy to amoxicillin 250mg 3 times daily in the treatment of bronchitis (acute or AECB). The adverse events noted with cefpodoxime proxetil administration were similar to those associated with other beta-lactam antibacterials and most commonly involved the gastrointestinal tract and skin or mucous membranes. Thus, cefpodoxime proxetil is a useful addition to the antibacterials available for the treatment of infections of the lower respiratory tract.

The antibacterial activity of cefpodoxime against Branhamella catarrhalis was studied. All of the 65 clinical isolates tested were inhibited at and below 1.56 micrograms/ml, both at 10(7) and at 10(5) CFUs. The following was further studied on B. catarrhalis N-5 which showed average susceptibility to each drug examined. Bactericidal activity was observed at and above the MIC. Scanning and transmission electron microscopy revealed morphological changes, such as cellular swelling, bleb formation, inhibition of septum formation, and lysis, of the cells exposed to cefpodoxime at concentrations around the MIC. Cefpodoxime was poorly hydrolyzed by the beta-lactamase and it showed affinity for two penicillin-binding proteins that had approximate molecular weights of 83 and 74 kilodaltons, with I50 values of 3.7 and 2.1 micrograms/ml, respectively.

A total of 260 children, 3 months to 11 years old (median age 24 months), with acute otitis media (AOM) received either cefpodoxime proxetil (CP) 8 mg/kg/d b.i.d. or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid (ACA) 40/10 mg/kg/d t.i.d. for 8 days. A significant difference in clinical cure rates was observed between the CP group 71/118 (60%) and the ACA group 42/105 (40%), p = 0.003. At the follow-up visit (20-30 days after the start of treatment), significant advantages were recorded with the CP vs. ACA therapy, in terms of satisfactory clinical response [90/111 (81%) vs 60/94 (63.8%), p = 0.005] residual middle ear effusion (14.4% vs 28.7%, p = 0.01) and normal tympanometry (78% vs 61.4%, p = 0.017). Compliance and adverse event frequency were the same in both treatment groups. The higher clinical cure rate and equivalent safety profile of CP indicates that it is an acceptable alternative to ACA for the treatment of AOM in children.

This was a multicenter, prospective, randomized, double-blind study conducted in the United States and South Africa. Ambulatory patients with a diagnosis of CAP were randomized to 14 days of treatment with cefditoren 200 or 400 mg BID or cefpodoxime 200 mg BID. Assessments of clinical cure and pathogen eradication were conducted at 2 visits during treatment, 1 posttreatment visit (s48 hours after completion of treatment), and 1 follow-up visit (7-14 days after completion of treatment). The development of resistant pathogens was assessed at the follow-up visit but not thereafter. The relative cost of treatment was not assessed.

Cefpodoxime proxetil (CFP), a broad-spectrum third-generation cephalosporin, has been used most widely in the treatment of respiratory and urinary tract infections. For bioequivalence study of CFP in rabbit plasma, it was necessary to develop a highly sensitive and selective high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method with fluorescence (FL) detection. The pre-column labeling of cefpodoxime acid (CFA) (active metabolite) with an efficient benzofurazan type fluorogenic reagent, 4-N,N-dimethyl aminosulfonyl-7-fluoro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole (DBD-F) was carried out in the present study in 100mM borate buffer (pH=8.5) at 50°C for 15min. The obtained fluorescent products were separated on C18 column with an isocratic elution of the mobile phase, which consists of 10mM phosphate buffer (pH=3.5)/CH3CN (70:30, v/v). The fluorescent product (DBD-CFA) was detected fluorimetrically at 556nm with an excitation wavelength of 430nm. Cefotaxime sodium was used as internal standard. The method was validated according to the requirements of US-FDA guidelines. The correlation coefficient of 0.999 was obtained in the concentration ranges of 10-1000ngmL(-1). The limits of detection and quantification (S/N=3) were 3 and 10ngmL(-1), respectively. Plasma CFA levels were successfully determined in rabbit with satisfactory precision and accuracy. The proposed HPLC-FL method was successfully applied to study bioequivalence in rabbits for two formulations of different brands contained CFP (prodrug) in a randomized, two-way, single-dose, crossover study and all pharmacokinetic parameters for the two formulations were assessed.

Cefpodoxime is a new oral prodrug antibiotic. Following absorption from the proximal intestine, non-specific esterases hydrolyze this cleavable ester, releasing cefpodoxime, a new broad-spectrum third-generation cephalosporin with sustained plasma levels in humans. Cefpodoxime killing kinetics were studied using an in vitro model which simulates the pharmacokinetic profile obtained in healthy volunteers given a single oral dose of cefpodoxime proxetil providing 100, 200 or 400 mg active cefpodoxime. Cefpodoxime exhibited strong antibacterial activity against tested strains of Escherichia coli, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus. These results suggest that use of two daily doses of 100 or 200 mg each are appropriate for the treatment of E. coli and S. pneumoniae infections in view of the pharmacokinetic properties of cefpodoxime. Less intensive therapy is probably adequate in uncomplicated community-acquired urinary tract infections. The bactericidal effect of cefpodoxime against S. aureus is prolonged due to a postantibiotic effect.

The most common pathogen causing skin infections is Staphylococcus aureus and the incidence of multiply resistant strains of S. aureus has been increasing. The in vitro susceptibility of 130 isolates of S. aureus to 19 antimicrobial agents: ampicillin (ABPC), methicillin, cefaclor, cefpodoxime proxetil, gentamicin, erythromycin, clindamycin, minocycline, vancomycin, fusidic acid, norfloxacin, ofloxacin, enoxacin, ciprofloxacin, lomefloxacin, tosufloxacin, sparfloxacin, nadifloxacin and grepafloxacin, was evaluated by agar dilution tests. The S. aureus isolates were isolated from 130 patients with skin infections in 1994. The proportion of methicillin-resistant S. aureus isolates among the strains isolated was 19.2%. The concentration needed to inhibit 50% of the isolates was 3.13 mg/ml or less for all of the drugs, but the concentration needed to inhibit 90% of isolates was over 12.5 micrograms/ml, except in the cases of minocycline, vancomycin, fusidic acid, tosufloxacin and nadifloxacin. Tosufloxacin and nadifloxacin had the lowest minimum inhibitory concentrations. None of the S. aureus strains was resistant to nadifloxacin.

The luminal and mucosal deesterification of the prodrug ester cefpodoxime-proxetil was studied in human duodenal washings in vitro. Enzymatic hydrolysis of the ester, releasing the active third generation cephalosporin, was observed in luminal washing in the same way as it had previously been observed in the rabbit. Eserine and PMSF and HgCl(2) were potent inhibitors of cefpodoxime-proxetil hydrolysis in luminal washing, suggesting the participation of a cholinesterase in the hydrolysis of cefpodoxime-proxetil. These results are in agreement with our previous findings performed in the rabbit. Moreover, cefpodoxime-proxetil directly decreases the acetylcholinesterase activity when tested by a specific enzymatic method. These observations support the hypothesis that the partial oral bioavailability of cefpodoxime-proxetil results from hydrolysis by luminal cholinesterases. In vitro experiments run with rabbit duodenal washing with food components were compared with the pharmacokinetics of cefpodoxime-proxetil in humans. Amino acids, trace elements and vitamins were potent inhibitors for cefpodoxime-proxetil hydrolysis in duodenal washings. Otherwise, lipids (LTC and mixed LCT/MCT) did not interact. In the human, cefpodoxime-proxetil bioavailability is significantly enhanced when tablets are administered with food. The correlation found between animal results and human results in vitro for prospective investigation of a new prodrug ester could be very useful. An in vitro hydrolysis in intestinal animal washings could allow the potentially degraded condition and the food effect of the luminal tract to be assessed before absorption.

Pharmacokinetic, bacteriological and clinical studies on cefpodoxime proxetil (CPDX-PR, CS-807), a newly developed oral cephem, were carried out in the treatment of infectious diseases in the field of pediatrics. 1. Since CPDX demonstrates very powerful antimicrobial actions against such Gram-negative bacilli as Escherichia coli, Salmonella sp., Klebsiella pneumoniae and Serratia sp., such Gram-positive cocci as Streptococcus pyogenes and Streptococcus pneumoniae, and beta-lactamase producing Branhamella catarrhalis and Haemophilus influenzae, this drug was thought to be useful for the treatment of pediatric infectious diseases when main causative bacteria in the field of pediatrics were taken into account. 2. When changes in blood and urine concentrations of CPDX following the administration of this drug at 3.7 mg/kg before meal were determined, Cmax and T1/2 were found to be 2.98 micrograms/ml at 2-hour and 1.73 hours, respectively; an urinary excretion rate in the first 6 hours and a maximum urine concentration were 32.5% and 52 micrograms/ml, respectively. 3. buy vantin Clinically, 8 of 8 patients with the upper respiratory tract infections (100%), 28 of 29 patients with bronchitis and/or pneumonia (96.6%), 3 of 4 patients with otitis media (75%), 2 of 2 patients with sinusitis (100%), 3 of 3 patients with the skin soft tissue infections (100%), 1 of 1 patient with bacterial enteritis (100%) and 11 of 14 patients with urinary tract infections (78.6%) responded well to the treatment with CPDX-PR, showing a 91.8% efficacy rate in all the patients treated. 4. Bacteriologically, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, S. pyogenes, S. pneumoniae, E. faecalis, B. catarrhalis, H. influenzae, E. coli and Salmonella typhimurium were all eradicated from 5, 1, 4, 6, 1, 5, 5, 11 and 1 patient, respectively. An eradication rate in all the patients examined was 97.5% (39/40). 5. Gastrointestinal symptoms appeared as side effects in 2 of 71 patients (vomiting in 1 and diarrhea in 1), hence, an incidence of side effects was 2.8% (2/71). As for abnormal laboratory findings, eosinophilia, thrombocytosis and increases in GOT and GPT were observed in 3 of 39 patients examined (7.7%), 1 of 39 patients (2.6%) and 2 of 34 patients (5.9%), respectively. In addition, we also examined the effect of the drug on the hemostatic system, but found no changes upon the treatment. Based on these results, it appeared that CPDX-PR was a useful and safe drug in treatment of infectious diseases in the field of pediatrics when administered 2-3 times a day at a dose of 3-6 mg/kg.

Cefpodoxime proxetil (CS-807) is an orally active prodrug of an oxime-type cephem antibiotic. The MIC60 values of cefpodoxime (R-3746) the active form of CS-807, were 3.13, 6.25, 0.05, 0.38, 0.2, 0.1, 3.13, 3.13, 6.25, 6.25, 0.1 and 12.5 micrograms/ml against S. aureus, coagulase-negative staphylococci, S. pneumoniae, E. coli carrying R plasmids, P. vulgaris, P. rettgeri, C. freundii, S. marcescens, A. calcoaceticus, P. cepacia, ampicillin-resistant H. buy vantin influenzae and B. fragilis, respectively. Its activity was stronger than that of cefaclor and ampicillin. R-3746 manifested little activity against P. aeruginosa, methicillin-resistant S. aureus, and Enterococcus spp. R-3746 showed stronger binding affinity than cefaclor with the PBP2 of S. aureus, PBPs 1a, 1bs, 2 and 3 of E. coli, PBPs 1b, 1c and 3 of P. rettgeri, and the PBP3 of P. aeruginosa than cefaclor. Synergy of the bactericidal effect between R-3746 and serum complement was moderate, although the cells of E. coli NIHJ-JC2 and S. aureus 209P were well engulfed and rapidly digested by mouse-cultured macrophages in the presence of greater than 1/8 MIC of R-3746. Good clinical efficacy can be expected of CS-807 provided its pharmacokinetics prove to be good.

The clinical success rates at day 12-19 in the per-protocol population (primary analysis) were 92.3% (215/233) in the cefpodoxime-proxetil group and 93.6% (204/218) in the amoxicillin-clavulanic acid group. The 95% confidence interval of [6.5%; 3.9%] demonstrated that cefpodoxime-proxetil was not inferior to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid. Cure rates at follow-up (day 25-30) were 90.6% and 92.7%, respectively. Results were similar in the intent-to-treat population. Compliance was significantly better in the cefpodoxime-proxetil group (99.2% versus 95.5%; p=0.011). Tolerance was also significantly better: 1 buy vantin .2% (3/247) of cefpodoxime-proxetil patients reported a treatment-related adverse event, compared with 10.7% (26/244) in the amoxicillin-clavulanic acid group (p<0.001). Most events were gastrointestinal and of mild to moderate intensity.

Ceftriaxone-related haemolysis resulted in the death of one of our patients (patient 2), and caused acute renal failure in the other (patient 1). The DATwas strongly positive for anti-C3d and anti-IgG in one case (patient 2), and for anti-C3d alone in the other (patient 1). The serum of patient 1 reacted with red blood cells only in the presence of ex vivo antigens, while that buy vantin of patient 2 reacted positively to native ceftriaxone and its ex vivo antigen. In the latter patient, the antibodies appeared to cross-react with native cefotaxime whereas, in the first patient, they weakly cross-reacted only with the ex vivo antigens of cefotaxime and cefpodoxime proxetil.

Twenty-four healthy volunteers and 24 patients undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate received an oral dose of 200 mg of cefpodoxime as proxetil ester in a fasting state. At the same time 3.235 g of iohexol, a renal contrast medium, was injected intravenously to indicate possible urinary contamination of the prostatic fluid. The subjects were divided into three groups each. After 3, 6 and 12 h the cefpodoxime concentrations were measured in plasma, urine, prostatic fluid and ejaculate in volunteers and in plasma, prostatic fluid and prostatic adenoma tissue in patients by a bioassay as well as by an HPLC method. In general, the concentrations measured by bioassay were higher than those by HPLC. The median plasma concentrations (bioassay) in volunteers (patients) buy vantin after 3, 6 and 12 h were 2.28 (2.34) mg/l, 0.95 (1.17) mg/l and 0.12 (0.28) mg/l, respectively. The median ejaculate concentrations after 6 and 12 h were 0.95 mg/l and 0.19 mg/l, respectively. Only in three volunteers and in one patient prostatic fluid concentration without urinary contamination could be measured after 3 h with a median fluid to plasma ratio of 0.10. The prostatic adenoma tissue concentrations (bioassay) after 3 and 6 h were 0.50 mg/kg and 0.24 mg/kg with tissue to plasma ratios of 0.30 and 0.26, respectively. After 3 h about half of the volunteers and after 12 h about half of the patients showed no detectable concentration in ejaculate (volunteers) and prostatic tissue (patients), respectively. It was concluded that the cefpodoxime should be administered 3 to 6 h prior to surgery if used for perioperative prophylaxis.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Group A beta-hemolytic streptococcus (GABHS) is the most common bacterial cause of acute pharyngitis. Although children infected with GABHS will recover clinically without antibiotics, treatment is recommended in order to prevent acute rheumatic fever and probably suppurative complications, hasten resolution of clinical signs and symptoms, and prevent transmission to close contacts. Streptococcal pharyngitis usually cannot be reliably distinguished from other etiologies on the basis of epidemiologic or physical findings, and therefore a throat culture or a rapid antigen detection test is generally necessary to confirm the diagnosis. All isolates of GABHS are sensitive to penicillins and cephalosporins, whereas resistance to macrolides has been identified in some geographic regions. The recommended first-line therapy for streptococcal pharyngitis is a 10-day course buy vantin of penicillin V, usually given 2 or 3 times per day. A number of alternatives to penicillin V are available, including other penicillins, macrolides, and cephalosporins. As a class, the cephalosporins are noteworthy because they may provide somewhat higher bacteriologic eradication rates than penicillin V. Many cephalosporins can be administered twice daily, but they also must be given for 10 days. Two third-generation cephalosporins, cefdinir and cefpodoxime proxetil, are approved for use in a more convenient 5-day dosing schedule, thus possibly increasing the likelihood of adherence to the full course of therapy. Palatability is also an important consideration when prescribing antibiotics to children. In a series of studies, children preferred the pleasant strawberry-cream taste of cefdinir to that of amoxicillin/clavulanate, cefprozil, and azithromycin. Cefdinir may offer an alternative to penicillin V for children with streptococcal pharyngitis, particularly when compliance is a clinical concern.

The evaluation of seven widely-used antibiotic preparations [five cephem antibiotics; cefaclor (CCL), cefpodoxime proxetil (CPDX-PR), cefdinir (CFDN), cefditoren pivoxil (CDTR-PI), cefcapene pivoxil (CFPN-PI), one macrolide; clarithromycin (CAM) and one penem; faropenem sodium (FRPM)] for children were performed from a standpoint of water-solubilities, both as a preparation and as a component drug. As the results, these preparations showed great differences in the water-solubilities when added 10 ml water to 0.5 g of each preparation. That is, their solubilities differed from about 40% (CFPN-PI) to 100% (FRPM) as a preparation, and from nearly 0% (CAM) to 100% (FRPM, CCL) as a component drug. Additionally, about a half of the insoluble residues were found to be the component drug, in the cases of three preparations (CPDX-PX, CFDN, CDTR-PI) which were solubilized at 80-90%. From these results Zocor 40mg Medication , it was suggested that the marketed antibiotic preparations for children might be classified into three categories; i.e., [A] preparation for solution and suspension (FRPM, CCL), [B] preparation suitable to suspension (CPDX-PR, CFDN, CDTR-PI), and [C] fine granule preparation for children unsuitable to suspension (CFPN-PI, CAM). Consequently, the names for dosage-forms of these preparations should be standardized.

The most common pathogen causing skin infections is Staphylococcus aureus and the incidence of multiply resistant strains of S. aureus has been increasing. The in vitro susceptibility Albenza Buy of 130 isolates of S. aureus to 19 antimicrobial agents: ampicillin (ABPC), methicillin, cefaclor, cefpodoxime proxetil, gentamicin, erythromycin, clindamycin, minocycline, vancomycin, fusidic acid, norfloxacin, ofloxacin, enoxacin, ciprofloxacin, lomefloxacin, tosufloxacin, sparfloxacin, nadifloxacin and grepafloxacin, was evaluated by agar dilution tests. The S. aureus isolates were isolated from 130 patients with skin infections in 1994. The proportion of methicillin-resistant S. aureus isolates among the strains isolated was 19.2%. The concentration needed to inhibit 50% of the isolates was 3.13 mg/ml or less for all of the drugs, but the concentration needed to inhibit 90% of isolates was over 12.5 micrograms/ml, except in the cases of minocycline, vancomycin, fusidic acid, tosufloxacin and nadifloxacin. Tosufloxacin and nadifloxacin had the lowest minimum inhibitory concentrations. None of the S. aureus strains was resistant to nadifloxacin.

We evaluated the usefulness of cefpodoxime proxetil (CPDX-PR) in the treatment of puerperal infection and obtained the following results. (i) The susceptibilities of 124 clinical isolates from 85 uterine lochia samples were determined. The MIC at which the growth of Streptococcus agalactiae, Escherichia coli, and Bacteroides fragilis isolates was inhibited by 90% (MIC90) was 0.39 micrograms/ml or less. The MIC90 for Staphylococcus aureus was 3.13 micrograms/ml. (ii) Seven puerperal women received 200 mg of CPDX-PR orally. The CPDX concentration in the lochias in the uterine cavity was not statistically different from that in the Zovirax Ointment Generic vagina, suggesting that the vaginal samples, which can be obtained more safely and aseptically, can be substituted for the uterine samples. The CPDX concentration in cubital venous blood reached a peak of 1.61 micrograms/ml at 3 hours after CPDX-PR administration. The CPDX concentration in the lochias gradually increased and reached a peak of 1.20 micrograms/ml in the uterine cavity and 1.27 micrograms/ml in the vagina at 5 h after drug administration and gradually declined thereafter. These results suggest that CPDX-PR, with its good transfer to the lochia and its potent antimicrobial activity, is a promising drug for the prophylactic and therapeutic treatment of puerperal infections caused by susceptible organisms.

The clinical efficacy of cefditoren pivoxil (CDTR-PI) was evaluated for 43 pediatric patients with acute otitis media or acute sinusitis. The causative organisms were identified and their susceptibilities to 6 oral beta-lactam antibiotics were measured; ampicillin (ABPC), cefaclor (CCL), cefdinir (CFDN), cefditoren pivoxil (CDTR-PI), cefteram pivoxil (CFTM-PI) and cefpodoxime proxetil (CPDX-PR). The ages of 43 patients were distributed from 4 months to 10 years and 7 months, and especially children under 4 years accounted for 72% (31 cases). In 22 cases (51%), Haemophilus influenzae or Streptococcus pneumoniae were identified as the pathogens, but in 18 cases, no causative organisms were defined. Treatment by CDTR-PI was successful in 12 cases out of 15 evaluable cases in which H. influenzae or S. pneumoniae were identified as the main causative organisms. From the susceptibility testing of them, some strains of H. influenzae were Triphala Reviews found to be ABPC-resistant and some strains of S. pneumoniae were benzylpenicillin (PCG)-resistant. To support above clinical evaluation of CDTR-PI, susceptibility testings on clinically isolated H. influenzae (81 strains) and S. pneumoniae (79 strains) were performed using above mentioned 6 oral beta-lactam antibiotics. The MIC80s against H. influenzae were; CDTR-PI 0.06 microgram/ml, CCL 2 micrograms/ml, CPDX-PR 0.125 microgram/ml, CFTM-PI 0.03 microgram/ml, CFDN 1 microgram/ml and ABPC 1 microgram/ml. Those against S. pneumoniae were; CDTR-PI 0.5 microgram/ml, CCL > 4 micrograms/ml, CPDX-PR 2 micrograms/ml, CFTM-PI 1 microgram/ml, CFDN 2 micrograms/ml and ABPC 1 microgram/ml. From those results, it was concluded that CDTR-PI or CFTM-PI may be preferable for the treatment of acute otitis media and acute sinusitis in children.

Pharmacokinetic, bacteriological and clinical studies on S-1108 were performed in children. The results were as follows: 1. A total of 11 patients were treated with S-1108. Each dose was 3 mg/kg, orally administered 3 times daily for 4-14 days. The clinical efficacies of S-1108 in 10 patients with bacterial infections (1 with bacteremia, 4 with pneumonia, 1 with acute maxillary sinusitis, 1 with scarlet fever and 2 with streptococcal pharyngitis) were evaluated as excellent in 8 patients and as good in 2 patients with an efficacy rate of 100%. Only one patient with staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome due to methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) who received gamma-globulin was not evaluated. Fourteen causative strains of 5 species were found in 10 patients. Three strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae out of 5, 2 of 3 Branhamella catarrhalis strains, none of Staphylococcus aureus and all 3 strains of Streptococcus pyogenes were eradicated. No adverse reaction was observed in any of the 11 patients. 2. MICs of S-1108 against 5 clinically isolated S. pneumoniae from cases of infections were examined. All of them were relatively highly resistant to penicillins. S-1108 was compared with cefteram pivoxil, cefpodoxime proxetil, cefaclor and cefixime, and it showed better antibacterial activity or than other cephems. 3. Double peaks were obtained in plasma levels of S-1108 orally administered at a dose of 3 mg/kg at 30 minutes after meal and were 1.03 microgram/ml and 0.74 microgram/ml at 1 and 4 hours after administration, respectively.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
