Hepatotoxicity and hematologic complications induced by fusidic acid in a patient with hepatitis B cirrhosis: A case report.

08:00 EDT 1st November 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Hepatotoxicity and hematologic complications induced by fusidic acid in a patient with hepatitis B cirrhosis: A case report."

Fusidic acid (FA) is an active agent against gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus, it is generally well tolerated and the major adverse effects are mild gastrointestinal discomfort, diarrhea, and headache. However, some rare side effects such as granulocytopenia and thrombocytopenia have also been reported. Here we report a case of FA-induced hepatotoxicity and hematologic toxicity.

Association between the perturbation of bile acid homeostasis and valproic acid-induced hepatotoxicity.

Valproic acid (VPA), a widely prescribed antiepileptic drug, is known to induce hepatotoxicity. However, the mechanisms underlying this toxicity are not well understood. In this study, we performed a ...

Effects of Photoperiod on Acetaminophen-Induced Hepatotoxicity in Mice.

Acetaminophen (APAP) is a clinically popular analgesic and antipyretic drug, but excessive APAP can cause fatal hepatotoxicity. Many factors affect the degree of APAP-induced liver injury. This study ...

Nicolaides-Baraitser syndrome (NCBRS) is a rare disease caused by a mutation in the gene. Clinical features include craniofacial dysmorphia and abnormalities of the limbs, as well as intellectual dis...

Association of ABCC Gene Polymorphism With Susceptibility to Antituberculosis Drug-Induced Hepatotoxicity in Western Han Patients With Tuberculosis.

Six-month combination regimens could lead to serious hepatotoxicity, which may limit the clinical use of antituberculosis drugs. ABCC transporters are critical to the influx and efflux of compounds in...

Interleukin-10 polymorphisms and susceptibility to ARV associated hepatotoxicity.

Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is an anti-inflammatory cytokine associated with the inhibition of HIV replication. IL-10 polymorphisms were found to be linked to drug-induced hepatotoxicity. Hence we examined...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The co-occurrence of pregnancy and a blood disease (HEMATOLOGIC DISEASES) which involves BLOOD CELLS or COAGULATION FACTORS. The hematologic disease may precede or follow FERTILIZATION and it may or may not have a deleterious effect on the pregnant woman or FETUS.

An antibiotic isolated from the fermentation broth of Fusidium coccineum. (From Merck Index, 11th ed). It acts by inhibiting translocation during protein synthesis.

Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.

Persistent detrimental effects from treatment for a condition. Included are effects from surgery such as POSTOPERATIVE COMPLICATIONS, and from DRUG THERAPY, such as CHEMICALLY INDUCED DISORDERS, or other THERAPEUTICS. Failure to attain a desired outcome from treatment for the condition is not considered an adverse effect.

The naturally occurring or experimentally induced replacement of one or more AMINO ACIDS in a protein with another. If a functionally equivalent amino acid is substituted, the protein may retain wild-type activity. Substitution may also diminish, enhance, or eliminate protein function. Experimentally induced substitution is often used to study enzyme activities and binding site properties.
