The utility of vancomycin powder to prevent surgical site infection, mainly in spinal surgery, has been widely examined, and the local administration of vancomycin powder to wounds has been reported to be effective in preventing surgical site infections after spine surgery. However, in vitro studies have shown that high local concentrations of vancomycin may inhibit osteogenesis, although it remains unclear how these high concentrations influence osteoblasts. No candidate drug has been reported to recover cytotoxicity with high concentrations of vancomycin, but we suggest that vitamin D3, which induces osteoblast proliferation, may be administrated concomitantly with vancomycin in these situations.

The standard recommendation to prevent osteoporosis is to supplement low doses of vitamin D and calcium. Hyperhomocysteinemia has been related to increased risk of osteoporosis.
A synthetic PGE2 analog that has an inhibitory effect on gastric acid secretion, a mucoprotective effect, and a postprandial lowering effect on gastrin. It has been shown to be efficient and safe in the treatment of gastroduodenal ulcers.
Colipase I and II, consisting of 94-95 and 84-85 amino acid residues, respectively, have been isolated from porcine pancreas. Their role is to prevent the inhibitory effect of bile salts on the lipase-catalyzed intraduodenal hydrolysis of dietary long-chain triglycerides.
A vitamin that includes both CHOLECALCIFEROLS and ERGOCALCIFEROLS, which have the common effect of preventing or curing RICKETS in animals. It can also be viewed as a hormone since it can be formed in SKIN by action of ULTRAVIOLET RAYS upon the precursors, 7-dehydrocholesterol and ERGOSTEROL, and acts on VITAMIN D RECEPTORS to regulate CALCIUM in opposition to PARATHYROID HORMONE.
Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
