The aim of the present study is to evaluate the safety and usefulness of patch testing in DRESS.
We conducted a systematic review and aimed to answer the following clinical question: What are the effects of treatments for head lice? We searched: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and other important databases up to June 2008 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically, please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review). We included harms alerts from relevant organisations such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
A 46 years old HIV reactive patient developed Stevens Johnson syndrome (SJS) probably due to nevirapine and/or co-trimoxazole. Patient was on zidovudine + lamivudine + nevirapine along with Co-trimoxazole since last two months. After 15 days, zidovudine was replaced with stavudine due to development of anemia. All these drugs were stopped after development of reaction. Temporal association was found between stavudine, lamivudine, nevirapine, cotrimoxazole and development of the reaction. Nevirapine and Co-trimoxazole were suspected to cause this reaction most probably due to associated hepatotoxicity and their common potential to cause SJS. In our case, patient died despite stopping of all medications.

The effects of cotrimoxazole (CTX) and spiramycin (Spir) in mice infected in midpregnancy with the Beverley (Bev) strain of Toxoplasma gondii were compared. Therapeutic effectiveness was determined according to the following parameters: rate of successful delivery, litter size, offspring weight and survival. When compared with the uninfected untreated control group, CTX showed a more beneficial therapeutic effect than Spir, with a statistically significant increase in the rate of both successful delivery and offspring survival. Results based on antitoxoplasma antibody determinations in the offspring indicated a better in utero control of congenital infection by CTX than by Spir.

The records of 39 patients with CGD who were monitored during a period of 22 years were reviewed. All infections, infectious complications, and clinical outcomes were documented for a total observation period of 610 patient-years and were stratified with respect to different CGD subtypes.

Metronidazole (MTZ) and Cotrimoxazole (CTX) are used in HIV/AIDS patients eligible for antiretroviral treatment. The objective of this animal study was to determine whether pre-treatment with antibiotics affects the intestinal bioavailability of Atazanavir (ATV) and Ritonavir (RTV). After oral administration of 1 mg MTZ and CTX for 7 days, the rat colonic mucosa were analyzed for mucus thickness or placed in Ussing chambers to measure ATV and RTV net transepithelial fluxes (Jnet). 1. In control rats, the mucus thickness was 43.3±7.6 µm and 40.7±6.9 µm, in proximal and distal colon, respectively. In proximal colon, the thickness was 57.2±8.8 and 58.2±6.9 µm after MTZ and CTX, respectively whereas in distal colon, the thickness was 121.1±38.4 and 170.5±35.0 µm (P<0.05) respectively. 2. Transepithelial conductance was reduced after MTZ or CTX in the proximal and distal colon. 3. In control, net ATV secretion was observed both in proximal (-0.36±0.02 µg.hr(-1) cm(-2)) and distal colon (-0.30±0.08 µg.hr(-1) cm(-2)). After MTZ and CTX, it was increased in the proximal colon by two 2 fold and 4 fold, respectively and in the distal colon by 3 fold and 5 fold, respectively. 4. In control, there was no net active RTV transport either in proximal (+0.01±0.01 µg.hr(-1) cm(-2)) or distal colon (+0.04±0.01 µg.hr(-1) cm(-2)). After MTZ and CTX, secretion was increased 5 fold and 10 fold, respectively, in the proximal colon and two fold and 5 fold, respectively in the distal colon (p<0.001). In conclusion, after MTZ and CTX therapy, the mucus layer was enlarged, passive permeability was decreased and ATV and RTV were actively secreted by the colonic epithelium suggesting that, in rat, the intestinal bioavailability of ATV and RTV is impaired after antibiotic therapy.

In a prospective study of melioidosis in northern Australia, 252 cases were found over 10 years. Of these, 46% were bacteremic, and 49 (19%) patients died. Despite administration of ceftazidime or carbapenems, mortality was 86% (43 of 50 patients) among those with septic shock. Pneumonia accounted for 127 presentations (50%) and genitourinary infections for 37 (15%), with 35 men (18%) having prostatic abscesses. Other presentations included skin abscesses (32 patients; 13%), osteomyelitis and/or septic arthritis (9; 4%), soft tissue abscesses (10; 4%), and encephalomyelitis (10; 4%). Risk factors included diabetes (37%), excessive alcohol intake (39%), chronic lung disease (27%), chronic renal disease (10%), and consumption of kava (8%). Only 1 death occurred among the 51 patients (20%) with no risk factors (relative risk, 0.08; 95% confidence interval, 0.01-0.58). Intensive therapy with ceftazidime or carbapenems, followed by at least 3 months of eradication therapy with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, was associated with decreased mortality. Strategies are needed to decrease the high mortality with melioidosis septic shock. Preliminary data on granulocyte colony-stimulating factor therapy are very encouraging.
In September 1997, a 25-year-old Italian woman with cystic fibrosis (CF) spent 3 weeks in Thailand. In August 1998, her pulmonary function rapidly declined, with productive cough and intermittent fever. Chest x-ray films revealed diffuse, small, patchy opacities in the upper lobes. Burkholderia pseudomallei (BP) was isolated from specimens of the patient's sputum and was identified by means of 16S rDNA sequencing. The diagnosis of melioidosis was serologically confirmed. Continuous therapy with ceftazidime and co-trimoxazole and maintenance with co-trimoxazole, doxycycline, and chloramphenicol resulted in eradication of BP. We present the issue of whether patients with CF represent a population particularly at risk for melioidosis.

The efficacy and possible adverse reactions of co-trimoxazole in the treatment of typhoid fever with G-6-PD deficiency were investigated in 68 typhoid children aged 2 to 14 years old. Salmonella typhi was isolated from 45 patients but all had a significant rise of Widal agglutinin titres during the course of the disease. Decrease in G-6-PD activity of the red blood cells was found in 37 out of 51 patients tested. A daily dose of 6--10 mg of trimethoprim plus 30--50 mg of sulfamethoxazole per kg body weight was given for 14 days. Patients with G-6-PD deficiency were closely observed for evidence of intravascular hemolysis. All patients responded well and the mean period of defervescence after starting therapy was approximately 8 days. One patient with G-6-PD deficiency developed acute hemolysis on the second day of medication. The hemolytic symptoms subsided within 14 days with the continuation of co-trimoxazole therapy. No other major side-effect of the drug was observed. It is concluded that co-trimoxazole can be used successfully in the treatment of typhoid fever in G-6-PD deficient children with little risk of serious adverse reaction.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) due to Escherichia coli is one of the most common diseases encountered in clinical practice. Most common recognised pathogenic factor in E.coli is adhesion. There is accumulating evidence that through subinhibitory concentrations (sub-MICs) of many antibiotics do not kill bacteria, they are able to interfere with some important aspects of bacterial cell function.

Oral desensitization to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, as per this protocol is safe, in that there were no systemic or cutaneous reactions during desensitization as well as followup. It is well tolerated in all patients, including the three critically ill patients. As judged by the outcome and ability to tolerate trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole after desensitization, the procedure is successful in all patients in this study. Equipped with this protocol one can evaluate possible mechanisms of desensitization such as oral tolerance or mediator depletion in a controlled fashion.
