Liposomal gentamicin is safe and effective for treating foals with R. equi pneumonia.
To evaluate the efficacy of one-week therapy with omeprazole, clarithromycin and amoxycillin in eradicating Helicobacter pylori and healing duodenal ulcer.

Healthy volunteers with both antibodies to CagA and gastrin levels > or = 25 ng/ml were randomly assigned to receive either a combination of omeprazole, amoxicillin, and clarithromycin or matched placebo for 1 wk. Endoscopy with seven biopsies was performed at baseline, at 6 wk, and 1 yr after treatment. Treatment success was defined as loss of H. pylori by histological analysis. Cure was assessed using change in serology based on the standardized absorbance of a H. pylori ELISA.

Two main quadruple regimens were used in 29 patients. In spite of good compliance, the combination of omeprazole, tetracycline, bismuth and clarithromycin (OTBC) showed an eradication rate (per protocol analysis) of 36% (five out of 14; CI: 12.8-64.9), and if amoxycillin was used (OTBA) the rate was 67% (eight out of 12; CI: 34.9-90.1). The difference was not significant. No clinical factor was found to be associated with failure to eradicate.

The aetiology of dyspepsia is unknown in the majority of patients. Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) is the cause in a subset of patients. A non invasive test to assess the presence of H pylori is recommended in the management of patients under the age of 50 presenting to a family practitioner with dyspepsia. A urea breath test or a stool antigen test are the most reliable non invasive tests. Eradication of H pylori will reduce the risk to the patient with dyspepsia of developing a peptic ulcer, reduce the complication rate if prescribed non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs and later reduce the risk of gastric cancer. The recommended treatment for non ulcer dyspepsia associated with a H pylori infection should be a 10-d course of treatment with a PPI and two antibiotics. Treatment efficacy should be assessed four weeks after completing treatment with a urea breath test or a stool antigen test.

Although some authors found convincing evidence of the involvement of Helicobacter pylori as one possible cause of chronic urticaria, our results have failed to confirm the existence of this etiological association. The most remarkable finding was that those patients who had clinical remission of disease were the ones with greater UBT titters suggesting a role for the amount of colonization by Hp in the pathogenesis of urticaria disease.

In addition to antibacterial activity, some macrolide antibiotics, such as azithromycin and clarithromycin, also exhibit anti-inflammatory properties in vitro and in vivo, although the targets and mechanism(s) of action remain unknown. The aim of the present study was to identify protein targets of azithromycin and clarithromycin which could potentially explain their anti-inflammatory effects. Using chemical proteomics approach, based on compound-immobilized affinity chromatography, valosin containing protein (VCP) was identified as a potential target of the macrolides. Validation studies confirmed the interaction of macrolides and VCP and gave some structural characteristics of this interaction. Cell based assays however, including the use of gene silencing and the study of VCP specific cellular functions in J774.A1 (murine macrophage) and IB3-1 (human cystic fibrotic epithelial) cell lines, failed to confirm an association between the binding of the macrolides to VCP and anti-inflammatory effects. These findings suggest the absence of an abundant high affinity protein target and the potential involvement of other biological molecules in the anti-inflammatory activity of macrolides.
H.pylori eradication (intention to treat analysis) was successful in 75% of case group and 51.7% of control group showing a significant difference (P=0.008). H.p infection eradication (per-protocol analysis) was successful in 80.4% in case group and 57.4%% in control group showing significant difference (P=0.009). Drugs adverse effects causing discontinuation treatment were seen in 5% of case group and 3.3% of control group which have not shown a significant difference between the two groups (P=0.648).

Bioavailability of the ER clarithromyin tablet administered with food was equivalent to that of the reference IR tablet, based on area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) for both parent compound and active metabolite. The bioavailability of the ER tablet was 30% lower (based on clarithromycin AUC) when administered under fasting versus nonfasting conditions. Compared with the IR tablet, administration of the ER tablet resulted in significantly lower (P < 0.05) clarithromycin peak plasma concentration (Cmax), delayed time to Cmax, and lower degree of concentration fluctuation, confirming its in vivo extended-release characteristics. The most frequently reported adverse events (AEs) in the phase III clinical trials were diarrhea, abnormal taste, and nausea and were generally mild or moderate. The incidence of AEs was comparable for the 2 formulations. The severity of gastrointestinal AEs was significantly less for the ER formulation than for the IR formulation (P = 0.018), as was the frequency of premature study discontinuation due to gastrointestinal AEs or abnormal taste (P = 0.004).
