Side effect occurrence does not only depend on medication you are taking, but also on your overall health and other factors.


Do not take Ceftin if you are allergic to Ceftin components.

Ceftin should not be used for colds, flu, other virus infections, sore throats or other minor infections, or to prevent infections.

Be careful if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding.

Be careful if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement.

Be careful if you are diabetes patient. Ceftin may cause the results of some tests for urine glucose to be wrong.

To prevent pregnancy, use an extra form of birth control because hormonal birth control pills may not work as well while you are using Ceftin.

It can be dangerous to stop Ceftin taking suddenly.

ceftin renal dosing

The effects of repeated oral administration of cefuroxime axetil were assessed in Beagles. The test material, an ester, is hydrolysed following absorption from the intestine to yield the therapeutically active moiety, cefuroxime, together with acetic acid and acetaldehyde; in this study cefuroxime and unhydrolyzed cefuroxime axetil were detected in the blood. Cefuroxime axetil was administered twice daily during 27 weeks by gavage of aqueous, suspensions, total daily doses were equivalent to 100, 400 or 1600 mg cefuroxime/kg/day. Apart from three cases of intercurrent illness, unrelated to treatment, the dogs remained in good health. Effects observed in the 1600 mg/kg group included vomiting and slight suppression of body weight gain. Minor variations in haematological measurements included rather low haemoglobin levels, packed cell volumes and erythrocyte counts. Slightly smaller numbers of neutrophils were thought to reflect reduced demand on normal defensive mechanisms due to continued antibiotic treatment. Prolongation of prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time is attributed to disturbance of the intestinal microbial flora and reduced synthesis of vitamin K, on which the dog is highly dependent. Cefuroxime does not have the N-methylthiotetrazole side chain thought to be responsible for inhibition by other cephalosporins of the vitamin K-dependent step in the synthesis of clotting factors. Variations in plasma chemistry included rather low levels of plasma protein. Electrophoresis showed this to be a generalised reduction; only gamma globulins were proportionally decreased and this finding, like the low neutrophil counts, is attributed to the protective action of the antibiotic. Minor metabolic adjustments to the compound are reflected in plasma levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. This spectrum of findings was seen only to a very limited extent in the 400 mg/kg group; the 100 mg/kg group was, with very few exceptions, unaffected by the treatment. Macroscopic post mortem examination and microscopic examination of tissues revealed no treatment-related features indicative of toxicity. Cefuroxime axetil was thus shown to possess very little toxicity when administered repeatedly in large doses to Beagles. The lowest dose level in this study was ten times the proposed daily clinical dose in man.

Cefuroxime axetil is the esterified form of cefuroxime, injectable second generation cephalosporine antibiotic that can be given orally. Stereo and structural isomers of cefuroxime axetil (CA), anti-cefuroxime axetil (ACA) and Delta(3)-cefuroxime axetil (DCA), can be present in cefuroxime dosage forms as the process related impurities as well as possible degradation product. Sensitive and precise reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) method was developed and validated for the determination of cefuroxime axetil in the presence of its degradation products in solid dosage forms. The RSD values for cefuroxime axetil, anti-cefuroxime axetil and Delta(3)-cefuroxime axetil of 1.80, 1.99 and 2.48%, respectively, indicated a good precision of the RP-HPLC method. Developed RP-HPLC method was sensitive with LOD = 0.08 microg mL(-1) and LOQ = 0.60 microg mL(-1) for anti-cefuroxime axetil and LOD = 0.06 microg mL(-1) and LOQ = 0.45 microg mL(-1) for Delta(3)-cefuroxime axetil. Holding studies were carried out on Ceroxim tablets, according to ICH regulation at 30 degrees C/60% relative humidity (RH) and 40 degrees C/75% RH for 1, 2, 3 and 6 months. The review data from the stability studies conducted, show the significant content change of Delta(3)-cefuroxime axetil.

Four hundred and eighty five patients were included in the study: in France (n = 301), Tunisia (n = 48), Poland (n = 69) and Argentina (n = 67) between January 2001 and February 2002. Cultures were positive in 199/434 patients (46%), mainly S. pneumoniae (34.2%), H. influenzae (21.5%), S. aureus (15.4%), and M. catharralis (7.9%). The clinical cure rate at day 12-19 in the per protocol population, the main study criterion, was equal to 91.4% (201/220) and 91.1% (195/214) respectively in the pristinamycin and cefuroxime axetil groups; delta = 0.14%; 95%CI: [-5.1%; 5.3%]. The non-inferiority of 4-day pristinamycin versus 5-day cefuroxime axetil was demonstrated. The efficacy at follow up after treatment (day 26-31) was 88.6% and 85.8% respectively, confirming the non-inferiority. The bacteriological cure rate at day 12-19 was 87% (87/100) and 87.9% (87/99) respectively. Both treatments were well tolerated.

Antibiotic concentrations in serum and middle ear effusion (MEE) are important in determining treatment success in acute otitis media, but studies to measure concentration levels are often performed in chronically infected patients where there is little inflammation. In this open, single-center study, 26 patients with acute otitis media were enrolled to assess antibiotic penetration in inflamed ears. Of the 26 patients, 4 were non-evaluable, 6 formed a control group and the others were randomized into three groups. Each of the three groups was given a single oral dose of cefuroxime axetil suspension, 15 mg/kg. Food was administered approximately 20 minutes before the drug in order to maximize drug absorption. Cefuroxime concentrations in serum and MEE were assessed at 2-3 (group 1), 3-4 (group 2) and 4-5 (group 3) hours following dosing. Sampling of MEE was performed with tympanocentesis under local anesthesia and the drug was assayed by HPLC-mass spectrometry. The serum concentrations of cefuroxime were found to be above the minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) for penicillin-sensitive Streptococcus pneumoniae for 100% of the dosing interval and 42% of the time for intermediate-resistant strains. For both Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis, serum cefuroxime levels were above the MIC for 42% of the time between doses. This study indicates that cefuroxime axetil penetrates the inflamed middle ear effectively in acute otitis media after oral dosing. Serum levels were maintained above the MICs of important bacterial pathogens in otitis media for more than 5 hours after dosing, which is equivalent to 42% of the dosing interval. Thus, the important statistic of 40-50% of time above MIC, required for beta-lactam antibiotics to produce the maximal bacteriological cure rate of 80-85%, is achieved.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the penetration into the aqueous humor of cefuroxime after a single oral dose as cefuroxime axetil. Fourteen patients scheduled for cataract extraction received a single oral dose of cefuroxime axetil corresponding to 500 mg of cefuroxime 2-8 h preoperatively. Aqueous humor samples were obtained at the beginning of the cataract surgery and blood samples were drawn at the time of anesthesia. Cefuroxime levels were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography. The aqueous levels were (mean +/- SEM) 0.48 +/- 0.13 microgram/ml from 3 to 8 h after administration. Serum levels averaged 3.80 +/- 0.58 micrograms/ml. These data indicate that detectable levels of cefuroxime, exceeding the MIC of some bacterial species that frequently cause intraocular infections, may be achieved in uninflamed eyes after a low dose of cefuroxime axetil.

For clinically evaluable patients, the clinical response rates were equivalent for cefuroxime tid and bid groups posttreatment (cure/improvement, 79% and 84%, respectively) and at follow-up (maintained cure, 87% and 82%, respectively). All signs and symptoms of pneumonia showed improvement at the time of switch from IV to oral therapy. A total of 111 pathogens were isolated, the most common being Streptococcus pneumoniae (23%), Haemophilus influenzae (18%), and Enterobacteriaceae (15%). Bacteriologic clearance was obtained posttreatment in 47 of 49 and 36 of 42 of bacteriologically evaluable patients in the cefuroxime tid and bid groups, respectively. Both regimens were well tolerated with a low incidence of drug-related adverse events, the most common being GI.

The aim of the study was to substantiate clinically and microbiologically administration of such oral cephalosporins as cefuroxime axetil and ceftibuten in acute sinusitis. The spectrum of causative agents of acute sinusitis was determined, most common pathogens were identified and their sensitivity to antibiotics was tested. The conclusion is made that cephalosporins of the II-III generation meet the requirements to antibacterial drugs for treatment of acute sinusitis.

Cefuroxime axetil 250 mg twice daily and amoxycillin 250 mg three times daily were compared in an investigator-blind, randomised, parallel group, multicentre study of acute or acute-on-chronic bronchitis. The two compounds had broadly similar efficacy. Analysis of patients on an intention-to-treat basis 24-72 hours after completion of the course of study medication showed that amoxycillin afforded clinical cure or improvement in 123/153 (80.4%) of patients and cefuroxime axetil in 109/143 (76.2%). This result was not significantly different, but the amoxycillin cure rate was not sustained and there were significantly more clinical relapses during the 4-week follow-up period following the end of treatment. Only 4/68 (5.9%) of patients receiving cefuroxime axetil relapsed and required further treatment, whereas 16/77 (20.8%) of those receiving amoxycillin needed further treatment (P = 0.016). These were all patients who had initially responded to treatment and had been adjudged clinically cured or improved. The significant difference in relapse rates suggests that the apparent clinical success with amoxycillin was not sustained. There were no differences between the two treatments in the numbers of patients experiencing adverse events, which were generally mild and transient.

Fosfomycin trometamol (fosfomycin tromethamine) [Monuril(®), Monurol(®), Monural(®)] is approved in numerous countries worldwide, mainly for the treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs). Fosfomycin has good in vitro activity against common uropathogens, such as Escherichia coli (including extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing E. coli), Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus saprophyticus, and the susceptibility of uropathogens to fosfomycin has remained relatively stable over time. A single oral dose of fosfomycin trometamol 3 g (the approved dosage) achieves high concentrations in urine. Results of recent randomized trials indicate that single-dose fosfomycin trometamol had similar clinical and/or bacteriological efficacy to 3- to 7-day regimens of ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, cotrimoxazole or nitrofurantoin in women with uncomplicated lower UTIs. In addition, single-dose fosfomycin trometamol had similar bacteriological efficacy to a 5-day course of cefuroxime axetil or a 7-day course of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid in pregnant women with asymptomatic bacteriuria, and similar clinical and/or bacteriological efficacy to a 5-day course of cefuroxime axetil or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid or a 3-day course of ceftibuten in pregnant women with a lower UTI. Single-dose fosfomycin trometamol was generally well tolerated, with gastrointestinal adverse events (e.g. diarrhoea, nausea) reported most commonly. In conclusion, single-dose fosfomycin trometamol is an important option for the first-line empirical treatment of uncomplicated lower UTIs.

A prospective, multicentre, randomized, open-label, parallel group study compared the efficacy, safety and tolerability of cefuroxime 750 mg iv administered either twice daily (bd) or three times daily (tds) for 48-72 h, followed by oral cefuroxime axetil 500 mg bd for 5-7 days in a sequential therapy regimen for the treatment of acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis. A total of 628 adult patients entered the study; 323 in the cefuroxime tds group and 305 in the cefuroxime bd group. For clinically evaluable patients, the post-treatment clinical response rate was 86% and 88% in the cefuroxime tds and bd groups, respectively. Cure was maintained at follow-up (14-28 days after treatment completion) in 85% of the cefuroxime tds group and 84% of patients in the cefuroxime bd group. A total of 189 pathogens was isolated, the most common being Haemophilus influenzae (17%), other Haemophilus spp. (15%), Streptococcus pneumoniae (15%) and Enterobacteriaceae (23%). At the post-treatment assessment, 66% and 70% of pathogens were cleared in the cefuroxime tds and bd groups, respectively. Both treatment regimens were well tolerated. The incidence of drug-related adverse events was 7% in the cefuroxime tds group and 6% in the cefuroxime bd group; the most common side-effects were gastrointestinal. Qualitative and quantitative markers were used to determine the optimal time to switch from iv to oral therapy and, of these, peak expiratory flow rate was shown to be the most useful in the present study. In conclusion, the findings of this study support the use of a bd dosing schedule of cefuroxime in a sequential therapy regimen with oral cefuroxime axetil, demonstrating it to be clinically equivalent to the standard tds dosage currently used, as well as being simpler and more convenient to administer at a lower cost.

Evidence is evolving regarding the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of Lyme disease, HGA, and babesiosis. Recent evidence supports treating patients with erythema migrans for no longer than 10 days when doxycycline is used and prescription of a 14-day course of oral doxycycline for early neurologic Lyme disease in ambulatory patients. The duration of antimicrobial therapy for babesiosis in severely immunocompromised patients should be extended to 6 weeks or longer.

Cefuroxime Axetil nanoemulsion was formulated to address the problem of poor oral bioavailability. Formulation was manufactured utilizing Capmul MCM, Soya lecithin, Deoxycholic acid, Pluronic F127 and distilled water. Mean globular size of 121.3 nm was obtained. Drug content of nanoemulsion was found to be 97.12±0.27%(w)/(v). 80.7261% of the drug was diffused from nanoemulsion, as compared with 51.0048% diffused from the plain Cefuroxime axetil suspension. In vivo studies indicated AUC(0-24): 325.3 for nanoemulsion in comparison to AUC(0-24): 165.3 for plain suspension. Therefore a good orally bioavailable formulation was developed successfully.

Both treatment regimens gave rise to similar alterations of the normal oropharyngeal microflora. In both groups, the amount of Streptococcus salivarius was significantly reduced (P < 0.05). The most common causative pathogens of acute otitis were S. pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis. On the day of enrollment, approximately half of the patients, in both groups, were infected with more than one pathogen. The rate of infection or colonization with more than one potential pathogen was low on day 7 but recurred 2 weeks after treatment to similar levels as on day 0. The total number of patients with reinfection, recolonization or recurrence of pathogens on day 21 was 11/12 in the amoxycillin-clavulanate group and 4/7 in the cefuroxime axetil group. The most common beta-lactamase producer was M. catarrhalis.

The study examines the use of an oral antibiotic with a wide spectrum of action tested in dentistry belonging to the cephalosporin class: acetoxyethylcefuroxime. The pharmaceutical industry has succeeded in synthesising a prodrug of parenteral cephalosporin "Metoxyrinic cefuroxime sodium", thus resolving the problems presented by earlier molecules such as: scarce bioavailability, poor palatability and collateral effects at a gastroenteric level. This is a 2nd generation cephalosporin whose mechanism of action consists in the capacity to selectively block the synthesis of the peptidoglycan, a fundamental component of the cell wall of both Gram+ and Gram- bacteria. The study, which was performed in the Division of Odontostomatology of the Mauriziano Hospital in Turin, examined 59 patients suffering from some of the most commonplace dental pathologies such as: apical periodontitis-alveolitis-odontogenic abscesses-eighth teeth in dysodontiasis-maxillary cysts. The following clinical parameters were evaluated in both outpatients and those undergoing surgery: swelling, pain, lymphoadenopathy at the start of treatment, and at days 3 and 5 of treatment. A 250 mg tablet was administered every 12 hours for 5 days. Owing to the rapid resolution of symptoms and the limited collateral effects observed, the authors conclude that the drug may be regarded as the elective form of treatment.

Many existing and new drugs fail to be fully utilized because of their limited bioavailability due to poor solubility in aqueous media. Given the emerging importance of using nanoparticles as a promising way to enhance the dissolution rate of these drugs, a method must be developed to adequately reflect the rate-change due to size reduction. At present, there is little published work examining the suitability of different dissolution apparatus for nanoparticles.

Pretreatment sinus puncture was performed on 339 patients with acute community-acquired sinusitis (ACAS) between 1975 and 1990. Bacterial species recovered in titers of greater than or equal to 10(4) colony-forming units per milliliter (CFU/ml) from 383 sinus aspirates included Streptococcus pneumoniae, 92 (41%); Haemophilus influenzae, 79 (35%); anaerobes, 17 (7%); streptococcal species, 16 (7%); Moraxella catarrhalis, 8 (4%); Staphylococcus aureus, 7 (33%); and other, 8 (4%). Viruses (rhinovirus, parainfluenza virus, and influenza virus) and fungi (Aspergillus, zygomycoses, Phaeohyphomycis, Pseudallescheria, and Hyalohyphomycis) have also been reported to cause ACAS. Posttreatment sinus puncture was performed on 220 of the 339 patients in six studies to evaluate efficacy of selected antimicrobial agents in producing bacteriologic cure. Ampicillin, 500 mg four times daily; amoxicillin, 500 mg three times daily; trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, twice a day; cefaclor, 500 mg four times daily; bacampicillin, 800 mg twice a day; cyclacillin, 500 mg three times a day; cefuroxime axetil, 250 mg twice daily; amoxicillin-clavulanate, 500/125 three times daily; and loracarbef 400 mg twice daily, given in 10-day courses, produced bacteriologic cure in more than 90% of patients. Early studies were done before beta-lactamase-producing strains of H. influenzae were a frequent cause of ACAS in Charlottesville. Management of therapeutic failures is a difficult problem for which diagnostic and buy ceftin therapeutic sinus puncture and lavage, prolonged antimicrobial therapy, steroid therapy, and evaluation of allergy, immunodeficiency, and surgically correctable lesions of the osteomeatal complex are recommended.

The tick-borne spirochete responsible for Lyme disease is highly antibiotic-sensitive. Treatment related misconceptions can be attributed to confusion in three principal buy ceftin realms: (1) the appropriate approach to diagnosis (who should be treated); (2) necessary and appropriate treatment; and (3) what actually constitutes nervous system infection and to what extent this mandates different treatment. Contrary to often-repeated assertions, laboratory-based diagnosis-in the appropriate setting-is as valid as it is in most other serologically diagnosed infections. Treatment is highly effective in the vast majority of patients, including those with nervous system disease. Nervous system infection, most typically meningitis, cranial neuritis, radiculoneuritis, and other forms of mononeuropathy multiplex, is highly antibiotic responsive. The encephalopathy that can be seen in some patients with active infection represents the same phenomenon that occurs in patients with many other inflammatory disorders, is not evidence of central nervous system (CNS) infection, and does not require any different, more prolonged, or more intensive treatment. In patients with infection not involving the CNS, oral treatment with amoxicillin, cefuroxime axetil, or doxycycline for 2-4 weeks is almost always curative. Despite historic preferences for parenteral treatment with ceftriaxone, cefotaxime, or meningeal dose penicillin, patients with the forms of nervous system involvement listed above are highly responsive to oral doxycycline. Parenteral regimens can be reserved for those very rare patients with parenchymal CNS involvement, other severe forms of infection, or the approximately 5 % of patients who fail to respond to oral regimens.

In our study the ability of the isolated microorganisms to produce beta-lactamase was determined. These microorganisms were buy ceftin isolated from sinus punctures of 115 patients before (evaluation I) and after the treatment finished (evaluation III). During first evaluation 93 microorganisms with potential ability to beta-lactamase production were isolated. 24 of them (25.81%) produced beta-lactamase, 69 (74.19%) didn't do it. 57 patients were qualified for amixycillin with potassium clavulanate treatment (subgroup A) and 58 patients for cefuroxime axetil treatment (subgroup B). After the treatment (evaluation III) in the group of 21 isolated microorganisms 6 produced beta-lactamase. The microorganisms producing beta-lactamase were isolated only from the patients where the amoxycillin with potassium clavulanate was administered.

Cefuroxime axetil is widely used to treat respiratory tract infections. We are not aware of a population pharmacokinetic (PK) model for cefuroxime axetil. Our objectives were to develop a semiphysiological population PK model and evaluate the pharmacodynamic profile for cefuroxime axetil. Twenty-four healthy volunteers received 250 mg oral buy ceftin cefuroxime as a suspension after a standardized breakfast. Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry was used for drug analysis, NONMEM and S-ADAPT (results reported) were used for parametric population PK modeling, and NPAG was used for nonparametric population PK modeling. Monte Carlo simulations were used to predict the duration for which the non-protein-bound-plasma concentration was above the MIC (fT(>MIC)). A model with one disposition compartment, a saturable and time-dependent drug release from the stomach, and fast drug absorption from the intestine yielded precise (r > 0.992) and unbiased curve fits and an excellent predictive performance. The apparent clearance was 21.7 liters/h (19.8% coefficient of variation [CV]) and the volume of distribution 38.7 liters (18.3% CV). Robust (>or=90%) probabilities of target attainment (PTAs) were achieved by 250 mg cefuroxime given every 12 h (q12h) or q8h for MICs of MIC) of >or=40% and for MICs of MIC) of >or=65%. For the >or=40% fT(>MIC) target, the PTAs for 250 mg cefuroxime q12h were >or=97.8% for Streptococcus pyogenes and penicillin-susceptible Streptococcus pneumoniae. Cefuroxime at 250 mg q12h or q8h achieved PTAs below 73% or 92%, respectively, for Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, and penicillin-intermediate S. pneumoniae for susceptibility data from various countries. Depending on the MIC distribution, 250 mg oral cefuroxime q8h instead of q12h should be considered, especially for more-severe infections that require near-maximal killing by cefuroxime.

Cefuroxime-axetil, the 1-acetoxyethyl ester of cefuroxime, is a prodrug for oral administration. The indication of this new formulation in the treatment of community acquired RTI required an updating of its activity against respiratory pathogens. A total of 260 isolates were included in a study using MIC determination (agar dilution technique): the mode MICs for Haemophilus spp., Branhamella catarrhalis, streptococci, S. pneumoniae ranged from 0.016 to 0.5 mg/l; no difference was noted between beta-lactamase producers and non producers in Haemophilus and B. catarrhalis; coagulase positive staphylococci, E. coli, K. pneumoniae isolated from RTI exhibited mode MICs not exceeding 4 mg/l (except for methicillin-R staphylococci mode MIC greater than 128 mg/l). Simultaneously the pharmacokinetic parameters were determined in healthy volunteers after a loading dose (500 mg) of the drug: 7 consecutive samples collected after a light meal provided the following data: Cmax = 7.77 +/- 2.2 mg/l; Tmax = 2.33 buy ceftin +/- 0.23 hrs; t1/2 beta = 1.18 +/- 0.19 hrs; AUC = 22.17 +/- 6.4 Cmax and AUC were half of these values after administration of 250 mg. These results, together with the known intrinsic beta-lactamase stability of cefuroxime, should ensure sufficient in vivo concentrations and effective in vivo antibacterial activity against most respiratory pathogens after oral administration of cefuroxime-axetil.

The tolerability, safety, and efficacy of cefuroxime axetil suspension was studied in 36 children (aged buy ceftin 3 mo to 12 y) who had been hospitalized for respiratory tract or soft-tissue infections. After receiving parenteral antibiotics for a mean of 3.7 days, children were discharged home to receive cefuroxime axetil suspension at doses of 10, 15, or 20 mg/kg every 8 or 12 hours for a mean of 8.2 days. One child was lost to follow-up. Three of 35 evaluated patients were withdrawn from therapy because of adverse events, one of which was a drug-related hypersensitivity reaction. Of the 32 children who completed therapy, 9 developed mild reactions including oral thrush, diarrhea, or diaper dermatitis; none were withdrawn from therapy. Complete clinical cure occurred in 28 children (80 percent); 4 (11.4 percent) were clinically improved but still required an additional antibiotic within one week of completing therapy with cefuroxime axetil suspension. This favorable tolerability and safety of cefuroxime axetil suspension warrants further efficacy trials in pediatric patients.

The aim of this prospective, multicenter, randomized, double-masked clinical trial was to compare the efficacy and safety of moxifloxacin with those of cefuroxime axetil for the treatment of community-acquired acute sinusitis. Five hundred forty-two adult patients with symptoms and radiographic evidence of acute maxillary sinusitis received a 10-day oral regimen of either moxifloxacin (400 mg once daily) or cefuroxime axetil (250 mg twice daily). Acute signs and symptoms at presentation had lasted >7 days but <4 weeks. Clinical response at the end of therapy (7 to 14 Luvox Recommended Dosage days after treatment) was the primary efficacy variable. Four hundred fifty-seven of the patients (223 moxifloxacin, 234 cefuroxime axetil) were included in the clinical efficacy analysis. Moxifloxacin was found to be similar in effectiveness to cefuroxime axetil at the end-of-therapy visit (90% vs. 89%, respectively; 95% confidence interval, -5.1% to 6.2%). Clinical relapse at the follow-up visit was reported for only 8 patients (3 moxifloxacin, 5 cefuroxime axetil). No clinically significant differences were observed with respect to the number of patients experiencing a successful clinical response based on demographic or infection characteristics. Five of the 542 enrolled patients were lost to follow-up. Of the 537 patients in the intent-to-treat population, drug-related adverse events were reported in 37% of moxifloxacin-treated patients and in 26% of cefuroxime axetil-treated patients (P = 0.006). Adverse-event profiles were comparable in the 2 treatment groups, with the exception of nausea, which was reported by 11% of moxifloxacin-treated patients compared with 4% of cef uroxime axetil-treated patients (P = 0.003). In this study, moxifloxacin was as effective as cefuroxime axetil in the treatment of community-acquired acute sinusitis.

A total of 283 patients (150 men, 133 women) with a mean age of 55 years (range, 29 to 86 years) were randomized to receive clarithromycin (n = 97), levofloxacin (n = 94), or cefuroxime axetil (n = 92). Of 262 clinically assessable patients, clinical cure or improvement occurred in 87.9% (80/91) of those treated with clarithromycin, 87.4% (76/87) of those treated with levofloxacin, and 79.8% (67/84) of those treated with cefuroxime axetil. Eight (8.8%) clarithromycin-treated patients, 6 (6.9%) levofloxacin-treated patients, and 12 (14.3%) cefuroxime axetil-treated patients required a change in antimicrobial therapy to achieve clinical cure/improvement; between-group differences were not significant. No patients treated with clarithromycin required hospitalization for further antimicrobial treatment, compared with 3.4% (3/87) of levofloxacin- Glucophage 500 Mg treated and 3.6% (3/84) of cefuroxime axetil-treated patients (P = NS). A total of 6.2% (6/97) of clarithromycin-treated patients were prematurely discontinued from treatment due to adverse events, compared with 7.4% (7/94) and 8.7% (8/92) of levofloxacin- and cefuroxime axetil-treated patients, respectively.

The in vitro activities Paracetamol Overdose Pathophysiology of two new cephalosporins, an oral agent, cefprozil and a parenteral compound, cefepime, were assessed against recent clinical isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis, and Haemophilus influenzae. In general, both cefprozil and cefepime MICs were higher for beta-lactamase-producing strains of M. catarrhalis in comparison to strains that lacked beta-lactamase. By contrast, beta-lactamase-positive and -negative strains of H. influenzae had similar cefprozil and cefepime minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs). The MIC90 values for cefprozil were 0.12, 32, 4.0, and 0.5 micrograms/ml versus S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae, and beta-lactamase-positive and negative strains of M. catarrhalis, respectively. In comparison to three other oral cephalosporins included in this study, cefaclor, cefuroxime axetil, and cefixime, cefprozil was the most active agent against S. pneumoniae, the least active against B. catarrhalis, and equivalent in activity to cefaclor against H. influenzae. The cefepime MIC values against S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae, and beta-lactamase-positive and negative strains of M. catarrhalis were 0.03, 0.25, 2.0, and 0.5 micrograms/ml, respectively. Cefepime was less active than ceftriaxone for all three organism groups, however, was in all cases more active than cefixime, cefuroxime, cefaclor, and cefprozil.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

This article presents the preparation of nanoparticles of amorphous cefuroxime axetil (CFA) in a microporous tube-in-tube microchannel reactor (MTMCR). The experimental results indicated that CFA particle with a tunable size of 400-1400 nm could be achieved under a high throughput in the range of 1.5-6L/min. The average particle size decreased with increasing overall volumetric flow rate and decreasing CFA concentration, micropore size, and annular channel width. The produced CFA nanoparticles were characterized by SEM, XRD, FT- Ilosone 500 Mg IR, DSC and a dissolution test, which indicated that the nanosized CFA was amorphous and exhibited higher dissolution rate compared to the raw CFA. The MTMCR might offer a general and facile pathway for mass production of the nanoparticles of hydrophobic pharmaceuticals thanks to its high throughput capacity and excellent micromixing performance.
