Japanese Study Evaluating Safety, Efficacy and Acceptability of Telithromycin in Children With Infections
The primary objective is to assess the safety of telithromycin (HMR 3647) (20% fine granules) 1g filling sachet in children with infections (Respiratory tract infections, Dermatological infections, Otorhinolaryngological infections, Dentistry/Oral surgery infections).
Secondary objectives are to assess the clinical efficacy, bacteriological efficacy and acceptability of telithromycin (20% fine granules) 1g filling sachet in children with infections.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Encephalitis may occur as primary or secondary manifestation of TOGAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; HERPESVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ADENOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; FLAVIVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; BUNYAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; PICORNAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; PARAMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RETROVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; and ARENAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS.
Viral infections of the leptomeninges and subarachnoid space. TOGAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; FLAVIVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RUBELLA; BUNYAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORBIVIRUS infections; PICORNAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RHABDOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ARENAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; HERPESVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ADENOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; JC VIRUS infections; and RETROVIRIDAE INFECTIONS may cause this form of meningitis. Clinical manifestations include fever, headache, neck pain, vomiting, PHOTOPHOBIA, and signs of meningeal irritation. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1996, Ch26, pp1-3)
Infections with viruses of the family PARAMYXOVIRIDAE. This includes MORBILLIVIRUS INFECTIONS; RESPIROVIRUS INFECTIONS; PNEUMOVIRUS INFECTIONS; HENIPAVIRUS INFECTIONS; AVULAVIRUS INFECTIONS; and RUBULAVIRUS INFECTIONS.

The clinical activity of telithromycin vs. cefuroxime in children with acute infections of the middle ear, ages 6 months to 59 months old will be studied.
This is a multinational, randomized (1:1), double blind, double dummy, comparator-controlled, 2 parallel treatment group study in subjects from 6 months to < 13 years of age, with Streptoc...
The purpose of this study is to determine if 1 course of antibiotic treatment with telithromycin is superior to azithromycin in the treatment of lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs),...
Novel sources of antibiotics are required to address the serious problem of antibiotic resistance. Telithromycin (2) is a third-generation macrolide antibiotic prepared from erythromycin (1) and used...
Adverse effects have limited the clinical use of telithromycin. Preferential inhibition of the acetylcholine nicotinic acid receptors (nAChR) at the neuromuscular junction (α3β2 and NMJ), ciliary ga...
A set of 17 novel ketolides bearing an aryltetrazolyl-substituted alkyl side chain were synthesized and evaluated for their antibacterial activities, which the aryltetrazolyl group was selected to rep...
We characterized the mechanism of action and the drug-binding site of a novel ketolide, CEM-101, which belongs to the latest generation of macrolide antibiotics. CEM-101 shows high affinity for the ri...
