Description

To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Levocin and other antibacterial drugs, Levocin should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.

Levocin Tablets/Injection and Oral Solution are indicated for the treatment of adults (≥18 years of age) with mild, moderate, and severe infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms in the conditions listed in this section. Levocin Injection is indicated when intravenous administration offers a route of administration advantageous to the patient (e.g., patient cannot tolerate an oral dosage form).

Dosage

The usual dose of Levocin Tablets or Oral Solution is 250 mg, 500 mg, or 750 mg administered orally every 24 hours, as indicated by infection and described in Table 1. The usual dose of Levocin Injection is 250 mg or 500 mg administered by slow infusion over 60 minutes every 24 hours or 750 mg administered by slow infusion over 90 minutes every 24 hours.

Overdose

Overdose of the drug should be strictly avoided and if anyone has accidentally taken the overdose of the drug, then the victim should be provided with emergency medical help. Overdose victim can also consult to their local poison helpline. Some of the overdose symptoms include loss of coordination, drooping eyelids, weakness, decreased activity, trouble breathing, sweating, tremors, or seizure.

Storage

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Keep in a tightly closed container. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Contraindications

Risk of tendinitis and tendon rupture is increased. This risk is further increased in older patients usually over 60 years of age, in patients taking corticosteroids, and in patients with kidney, heart and lung transplants. Discontinue if pain or inflammation in a tendon occurs.

Anaphylactic reactions and allergic skin reactions, serious, occasionally fatal, may occur after first dose.

Hematologic (including agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia), and renal toxicities may occur after multiple doses.

Hepatotoxicity: Severe, and sometimes fatal, hepatoxicity has been reported. Discontinue immediately if signs and symptoms of hepatitis occur.

Central nervous system effects, including convulsions, anxiety, confusion, depression, and insomnia may occur after the first dose. Use with caution in patients with known or suspected disorders that may predispose them to seizures or lower the seizure threshold.

Clostridium difficile-associated colitis: evaluate if diarrhea occurs.

Peripheral neuropathy: discontinue if symptoms occur in order to prevent irreversibility.

Prolongation of the QT interval and isolated cases of torsade de pointes have been reported. Avoid use in patients with known prolongation, those with hypokalemia, and with other drugs that prolong the QT interval.

Data were pooled from two prospective, randomized studies. In the multinational study, patients received 7-14 days IV/PO moxifloxacin 400 mg QD or IV/ PO amoxicillin clavulanate 1200/625 mg TID +/- IV/PO clarithromycin 500 mg BID. In the North American study, patients received 7-14 days IV/PO moxifloxacin 400 mg QD, IV/ PO alatrofloxacin/trovafloxacin 200 mg QD, or IV/PO levofloxacin 500 mg QD. The primary endpoint was clinical success at the test-to-cure visit. Severe CAP was defined according to the 1993 ATS criteria.

One hundred and sixty patients with infection documented by the C-urea breath test and histology were included in this prospective, open label study. Subjects were randomized in four groups: (1) levofloxacin (500 mg o.d.), amoxycillin (1 g b.d.) and rabeprazole (20 mg o.d.) for 7 days; (2) levofloxacin (500 mg o.d.) and rabeprazole (20 mg o.d.) for 5 days; (3) levofloxacin (500 mg o.d.) and rabeprazole (20 mg o.d.) for 7 days; and (4) levofloxacin (500 mg o.d.) and rabeprazole (20 mg o.d.) for 10 days. Six weeks after the end of therapy status was checked by using the C-urea breath test.

A rise of resistance in uropathogens to all agents used for the management of urinary tract infections has been observed in Moscow. However, because of the broad spectrum and favourable safety parameters, fluoroquinolones remain the drugs of choice for the treatment of community-acquired urinary tract infections. Among them levofloxacin is preferable. When the use of fluoroquinolones is contraindicated, the 1st-3rd generation cephalosporins are advisable. Nitrofurans are expedient in the treatment of acute and relapsing cystitis. By the antibacterial activity and bioavailability sodium furasidin is advantages among the nitrofurans.

Antimicrobial use in long-term care facilities (LTCF) is an important public health issue, especially regarding its potential role in antimicrobial resistance. Up to two thirds of long-stay LTCF residents receive antimicrobial therapy each year. However, little is known specifically about antimicrobial use in short-stay LTCF residents receiving post-acute care.

This was a multicenter, open-label, pilot study enrolling consecutive non-ulcer dyspepsia patients with H. pylori infection never previously treated for the infection. Patients were randomized to receive one of the following treatments: (a) concomitant therapy: omeprazole 20mg, amoxicillin 1g, clarithromycin 500 mg, and tinidazole 500 mg for 5 days; (b) sequential therapy: omeprazole 20mg and amoxicillin 1g for 5 days followed by omeprazole 20mg, clarithromycin 500 mg, and tinidazole 500 mg for 5 days; (c) hybrid therapy: omeprazole 20mg, and amoxicillin 1g for 7 days followed by omeprazole 20mg, amoxicillin 1g, clarithromycin 500 mg, and tinidazole 500 mg, for 7 days. All drugs were administered twice daily. Bacterial eradication was checked 6 weeks after treatment by using a (13)C-urea breath test. A 10-day, second-line therapy with omeprazole 20mg, levofloxacin 250 mg, and amoxicillin 1g, all given twice daily, was offered to the eradication failure patients.

The mean aqueous level for topical levofloxacin was significantly higher than those achieved by topical ofloxacin or ciprofloxacin (p value = 0.02 and 0.01, respectively). The combination of topical and oral levofloxacin was significantly higher than topical levofloxacin alone (p = 0.05) and the ciprofloxacin combination (p = 0.003) but not significantly higher than the ofloxacin combination therapy.

The objective of this study was to identify the oral pathogens found in odontogenic infections, to determine their susceptibilities to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (AMC), clindamycin (CLI), doxycycline (DOX), levofloxacin (LVX), moxifloxacin (MXF), and penicillin (PEN), and to search for associations between specific pathogens and types of infection. Swabs from patients enrolled in a randomized, double-blind phase II trial comparing MXF with CLI for the treatment of odontogenic abscesses or inflammatory infiltrates were cultured on media for aerobes and anaerobes. All bacterial isolates were identified at the species level. Overall, 205 isolates were cultured from 71 patients: 77 viridans group streptococci, 56 Prevotella spp., 19 Neisseria spp., 17 Streptococcus anginosus group isolates and hemolytic streptococci, 15 other anaerobes, and 21 other bacteria. Ninety-eight percent of pathogens were susceptible to MXF, 96% to AMC, 85% to LVX, 67% to PEN, 60% to CLI, and 50% to DOX. S. anginosus group and hemolytic streptococci were found significantly more frequently (P = 0.04) in patients with abscesses (12/95) than in patients with infiltrates (5/110). In four patients with infiltrates who failed to respond to CLI therapy, three isolates of the Streptococcus mitis group and four Neisseria spp. resistant to CLI were found. In this study, S. anginosus group and hemolytic streptococci were clearly associated with odontogenic abscesses. Our analysis suggests that viridans group streptococci and Neisseria spp. play a decisive role in the etiology of odontogenic infiltrates. The high in vitro activity of MXF against odontogenic bacteria corresponds well to its clinical results in the treatment of odontogenic abscesses and infiltrates.

Forty-three (4.76%) implant reconstructions requiring explantation or drainage by interventional radiology met the inclusion criteria for this study. Five patients (11.6%) had round, smooth silicone implants, and 36 (88.4%) had textured tissue expanders. Twenty-six implants were explanted because of infection; 3, because of exposure from skin necrosis; and 11, because of the combination of flap necrosis and infection; and 1, secondarily because of cancer invasion into the skin. Reconstruction was salvaged in 21 breasts (51.2%): 12 (57.1%) by implant reconstruction, 5 (23.8%) by pedicled latissimus dorsi flaps, and 4 (19.1%) with a microvascular free flap. Thirty explants had microbiology data available. The most common organism isolated was Staphylococcus epidermidis (10), followed by methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (5), Serratia marcescens (5), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (4), enterococcus (3), Escherichia coli (2), Enterobacter (2), group B streptococcus (1), and Morganella morganii (1). Forty percent of the organisms were resistant to cefazolin; however, 86% were sensitive to gentamicin, 80% were sensitive to Levaquin, and 63% were sensitive to ciprofloxacin.

  A 77-year-old woman with a 15-year history of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was admitted to our hospital because of a wet cough that Recamicina Levofloxacino 750 Mg persisted for 1 month. The patient had been taking methotrexate (MTX) and adalimumab (ADA) for the past 3 years, and disease activity of RA was low. Discontinuation of ADA and MTX and treatment with oral levofloxacin were not effective. On admission, laboratory examinations showed eosinophilia (2539/μL), elevated serum total immunoglobulin E (538.0 IU/ml) and Aspergillus-specific immunoglobulin E levels, and Aspergillus fumigatus serum precipitins. A chest radiograph revealed multiple bilateral pulmonary shadows, and computed tomography revealed multiple consolidations. Bronchoscopic examination showed mucous plugs. Pathological examination revealed diffuse infiltration of eosinophils and fungus in the plugs. These findings led to the diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). A combination of prednisolone (0.5 mg/kg/day) and itraconazole (200 mg/day) was administered. After 3 months, the pulmonary consolidations resolved. To our knowledge, this is the first report of ABPA in a patient with RA treated with ADA. If patients treated with biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs present with eosinophilia and pulmonary consolidations, clinicians should consider ABPA in the differential diagnosis.

We studied the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-benzodiazepine receptor agonists and glutamate receptor antagonists on levofloxacin (LVFX)- and ciprofloxacin (CPFX)-induced convulsions using intrathecal (i.t.) injections in mice. We also studied the effects of these agonists and antagonists on exacerbated convulsions induced by coadministration of the quinolone with 4-biphenylacetic acid (BPAA). The agonists or antagonists were injected i.t. 5 min and BPAA was administered orally 30 min before a single i.t. injection of the quinolone (10 microliters per animal). The animals were observed for clonic convulsion and death, and latency times to the appearance of convulsion were determined. Among the agonists, baclofen showed marked inhibition of both LVFX- and CPFX-induced convulsions, while other compounds such as GABA, muscimol, diazepam, and 3-aminopropylphosphonic acid had slight effects. Among the antagonists, kynurenic acid showed the strongest inhibition of convulsions caused by all doses of LVFX and CPFX and prolonged latency times; gamma-glutamyl-aminomethylsulfonic acid (GAMS) also markedly inhibited convulsions. The antagonists D-AP-5, AP-7, and 6,7-dinitroquinoxaline-2,3-dione (DNQX) had slight effects. Additionally, GAMS, DNQX, and MK-801 significantly lowered the incidence of death in the groups treated with CPFX. The enhanced convulsive activities of LVFX or CPFX by pretreatment with BPAA were clearly blocked by baclofen, kynurenic acid, GAMS, and DNQX Azilide 100 Syrup Uses . D-AP-5 and AP-7 also showed clear effects on the activity of LVFX. These results suggest that LVFX has fewer effects on the brains than CPFX and that convulsions induced by these quinolones alone and by these quinolones administered with BPAA may be mediated largely through glutamate and GABA(B) rather than GABA(A) receptors in mice.

One hundred consecutive strains of P. aeruginosa were isolated from clinical specimens submitted to the clinical microbiology hospital laboratory. Duplicate isolates were not included. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of these isolates were determined by using Etests, performed according to the manufacturer's instructions. American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) strains of Escherichia coli, P Amylin 750 Mg Dosis . aeruginosa, and Staphylococcus aureus served as reference controls.

The extended-spectrum-lactamases-producing Escherichia coli has rapidly spread worldwide. Escherichia coli has been becoming much more resistant to β-lactam antibiotics and other commonly available antimicrobials. We investigated the prevalence, resistance, and probable gene type of extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) using minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) testing and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). We have collected 289 single-patient E. coli Isolates based on samples of China from July Cefuroxime 750 Mg Powder 2013 to August 2014. This article explored that the prevalence of ESBL-producing Isolates showed multi-resistant to antimicrobials such as fluoroquinolones, trimethoprim, tetracycline and aminoglycosides, and so on. The frequencies of resistance in Isolates were as follows: Ciprofloxacin, 74%, gentamicin, 69.5%, levofloxacin, 63%, tobramycin, 39%, and minocycline, 7.9%. According to our results, 197(68.2%) of the total 289 Isolates were ESBL-producing strains; further, 172 (87.3%) producers contained genes encoding CTX-M enzymes and 142(72.1%) producers contained genes encoding TEM enzymes. Most ESBL-producing Escherichia coli has produced more than one type of β-lactamase. Nucleotide sequence analysis has revealed the diversity of ESBLs types: CTX-M -15 is in the majority and TEM-135, CTX-M-3, CTX-M-98, CTX-M-14, CTX-M-142, CTX-M-65, CTX-M-55, CTX-M-27, and CTX-M-123 have been recovered. The results confirm that ESBL producers which are common in hospital strains of Escherichia coli are resistant to cephalosporins and other antibiotics in China. It is important to monitor such strains closely and provide scientific evidence of rational application of antibiotics to prevent their spread.

A spectrofluorimetric method to determine levofloxacin is proposed and applied to determine the substance in tablets and spiked human urine and Macrol Tablet 300 Mg serum. The fluorimetric method allow the determination of 20-3000 ng ml(-1) of levofloxacin in aqueous solution containing acetic acid-sodium acetate buffer (pH 4) with lambda(exc)=292 and lambda(em)=494 nm, respectively. Micelle enhanced fluorescence improves the sensibility and allows levofloxacin direct measurement in spiked Human serum (5 mug ml(-1)) and urine (420 mug ml(-1)), in 8 mM sodium dodecyl sulphate solutions at pH 5.

The aim of the study was to assess the prescribing practices of fluoroquinolones (FQ) among general practionners in the town of Sousse (central-eastern Tunisia). A transversal study was made between the first and the 23rd April, 2009, among general practionners working in Sousse. For each prescription, informations about patients, indications and modalities of treatment were collected on a questionnaire. These prescriptions were compared to Tunisian and/or French guidelines for antibiotics use. One hundred and eighty eight FQ prescriptions were analyzed. The mean age of patients was 50 years. FQ were more often used alone (83%) and in first line intention (84%). The molecules used were essentially ciprofloxacin (44.7%), levofloxacin (35.6%) and ofloxacin (18.6%). The indications were mainly bronchopulmonary infections (34%) and urinary tract infection (32%). These choices were in accordance with guidelines in 41% of the prescriptions. The Azithromycin Dosage 500mg dosage was adapted, but the duration of treatment was often excessive. Further efforts are needed, to optimize the good use of FQ in order to reduce or stabilize the rate of bacterial resistance.

The Japanese Respiratory Society has recently formulated practice guidelines for the management of adult patients with community-acquired pneumonia. The guidelines recommend the use of various oral antibiotics at individual physicians' discretion. We compared the cost-effectiveness of amoxicillin/clavulanate (AMPC/CVA), azithromycin (AZM), clarithromycin (CAM), cefdinir (CFDN), levofloxacin (LVFX), and minocycline (MINO), when used on an ambulatory basis. We performed a formal cost-effectiveness analysis from the perspective of direct cost payers in the framework of the Japanese medical system. Outcomes considered were quality-adjusted life days (QALD), costs per patient, and incremental costs per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) gained. Under baseline conditions, the effectiveness of MINO, AZM, CAM, and LVFX were on a par and higher than that of AMPC/CVA or CFDN by 125-290.5 QALD. The least expensive antibiotic was MINO (55,070 to 59,208 yen), followed by AZM (56,049 to 60,188 yen), CAM (56,171 to 60,309 yen), LVFX (61,988 to 66,127 yen). AMPC/CVA (122,432 to 133,797 yen), and CFDN (123,375 to 134,649 yen). Thus, MINO, AZM, and CAM were cost-effective antibiotics for adults with community-acquired pneumonia. Sensitivity analyses revealed that the initial success rate of each antibiotic was crucial in determining cost-effectiveness. When the number of times antibiotics are taken in a day and the period of therapy were taken into account, AZM was most beneficial with 917,179-1,152,694 yen (US$ 7,643-9,606) per additional QALY over MINO in patients without comorbidity. This result, however, was not applicable to patients with chronic lung disease. MINO was the least expensive and the most cost-effective in empirically treating adult patients with community-acquired pneumonia on an ambulatory basis. AZM provides a higher quality of life for adults without comorbidity with generally acceptable marginal cost.

Fifty-seven charts were available for review. There were 2 cases in 2000, 4 in 2001, 11 in 2002, 23 in 2003, and 17 through July of 2004. Comorbid conditions included human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (13%), asthma (11%), and diabetes (9%). Diagnostic culture was most commonly obtained in the second trimester (46%); however 18% of cases occurred in the postpartum period. Skin and soft tissue infections accounted for 96% of cases. The most common site for a lesion was the extremities (44%), followed by the buttocks (25%), and breast (mastitis) (23%). Fifty-eight percent of patients had recurrent episodes. Sixty-three percent of patients required inpatient treatment. All MRSA isolates were sensitive to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, vancomycin, and rifampin. Other antibiotics to which the isolates were susceptible included gentamicin (98%) and levofloxacin (84%). In comparison with the general obstetric population, patients with MRSA were more likely to be multiparous and to have had a cesarean delivery.

Age, sex, and Child classes showed no significant difference between group I and group II. Fever and abdominal pain were the most frequent manifestations and were reported in 82.7% and 80.2% of patients in group I and in 94.7% and 84.2% of patients in group II, respectively. Patients in group II had a more severe ascitic inflammatory response than group I and this was demonstrated by more ascitic lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) [median: 540 IU/L (range: 150-1200 IU/L) vs median: 240 IU/L (range: 180-500 IU/L), P = 0.000] and PMNL [median: 15,000 cell/mm(3) (range: 957-23,822 cell/mm(3)) vs 3400 cell/mm(3) (range: 695-26,400 cell/mm(3)), P = 0.000] counts. Ascitic fluid culture was positive in 32% of cases. Cefotaxime failed in 19% of patients; of these patients, 11 (100%) responded to meropenem and 6 (75%) responded to levofloxacin. Two patients with failed levofloxacin therapy were treated according to the in vitro culture and sensitivity (one case was treated with vancomycin and one case was treated with ampicillin/sulbactam). In group II the meropenem subgroup had higher LDH (range: 108-860 IU/L vs 120-491 IU/L, P = 0.042) and PMNL counts (range: 957-23,822 cell/mm(3)vs 957-15,222 cell/mm(3), P = 0.000) at initiation of the alternative antibiotic therapy; there was no significant difference in the studied parameters between patients responsive to meropenem and patients responsive to levofloxacin at the end of therapy (mean ± SD: 316.01 ± 104.03 PMNLs/mm(3)vs 265.63 ± 69.61 PMNLs/mm(3), P = 0.307). The isolated organisms found in group II were; enterococci, acinetobacter, expanded-spectrum β-lactamase producing Escherichia coli, β-lactamase producing Enterobacter and Staphylococcus aureus.
