Dual Therapy with Vonoprazan and Amoxicillin Is as Effective as Triple Therapy with Vonoprazan, Amoxicillin and Clarithromycin for Eradication of Helicobacter pylori.

Vonoprazan (VPZ) is the first clinically available potassium competitive acid blocker. This class of agents provides faster and more potent acid inhibition than proton pump inhibitors. Most strains of Helicobacter pylori are sensitive to amoxicillin. We hypothesized that dual therapy with VPZ and amoxicillin would provide the sufficient eradication rate for H. pylori infection. To evaluate this, we compared the eradication rate by the dual VPZ/amoxicillin therapy with that by the standard triple VPZ/amoxici...

Amoxicillin-Clavulanate Dosing in the Intensive Care Unit: The Additive Effect of Renal Replacement Therapy in a Patient with Normal Kidney Function.

Dosing of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid in critical illness is difficult as β-lactam pharmacokinetics are altered by physiological changes and therapies initiated in the intensive care unit such as renal replacement therapy (RRT). Successful treatment relies on sustaining a free antibiotic concentration above the minimum inhibitory concentration of the target pathogen (fT>MIC). We present a case of a patient treated with amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (1.2 g for 8 h) for an aspiration pneumonia. Dosing in this ...

Overcoming stability challenges during continuous intravenous administration of high-dose amoxicillin using portable elastomeric pumps.

While treatment of serious infectious diseases may require high-dose amoxicillin, continuous infusion may be limited by lack of knowledge regarding the chemical stability of the drug. Therefore, we have performed a comprehensive study so as to determine the chemical stability of high-dose amoxicillin solutions conducive to safe and effective continuous intravenous administration using portable elastomeric pumps. First, amoxicillin solubility in water was assessed within the range of 25 to 300 mg/mL. Then, a...

Amoxicillin removal by pre-denitrification membrane bioreactor (A/O-MBR): Performance evaluation, degradation by-products, and antibiotic resistant bacteria.

The present work evaluated the efficiency of an MBR pilot system in removing amoxicillin from synthetic wastewater using a continuous flow pre-denitrification MBR (A/O-MBR) pilot unit. The system operated in three phases: (1) synthetic wastewater and hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 40 h; (2) adding amoxicillin 100 μg L to the influent, and (3) varying flowrate to HRT of 20...

Sensitization of avian pathogenic Escherichia coli to amoxicillin in vitro and in vivo in the presence of surfactin.

The purpose of this study is to assess the antibiotics adjuvant effect of surfactin for boosting the treatment effect of amoxicillin. Surfactin is used as a surfactant to mediate flux of mono-and divalent cations, such as calcium, across lipid bilayer membranes. In this study, we demonstrated that surfactin can increase the activity of amoxicillin against avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) in vitro with antimicrobial assays such as minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) and fractional inhibitory conc...

Knowledge and attitude: two fundamental factors that determine patient compliance in antibiotic therapy.

Background With the development of infectious diseases, the use of antibiotics is increasing. Amoxicillin is a penicillin class of antibiotics that are widely used today. Compliance with amoxicillin can reduce the risk of microbial resistance. Two fundamental factors that determine patient compliance in antibiotic therapy are the patient's knowledge and attitude towards the antibiotic. In this study, we want to know the effect of knowledge and attitudes of patients on their compliance in using amoxicillin a...

Dietary sodium and potassium and risk of diabetes: A prospective study using data from the China Health and Nutrition Survey.

- Dietary sodium and potassium intakes are well-known risk factors for cardiovascular outcomes. However, the associations between dietary sodium and potassium and diabetes are still controversial. Our study aimed to examine whether dietary sodium, potassium and the sodium-potassium ratio are associated with the risk of diabetes, based on a large sample of Chinese adults.

Increased risk of acquisition and transmission of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae in malnourished children exposed to amoxicillin.

Routine amoxicillin for children with uncomplicated severe acute malnutrition raises concerns of increasing antibiotic resistance. We performed an ancillary study nested within a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in Niger testing the role of routine 7 day amoxicillin therapy in nutritional recovery of children 6 to 59 months of age with uncomplicated severe acute malnutrition.

MXene-Based Dendrite-Free Potassium Metal Batteries.

Potassium metal batteries are considered as attractive alternatives beyond lithium-ion batteries. However, uncontrollable dendrite growth on the potassium metal anode has restrained their practical applications. A high-performance potassium anode achieved by confining potassium metal into a titanium-deficient nitrogen-containing MXene/carbon nanotube freestanding scaffold is reported. The high electronic transport and fast potassium diffusion in this scaffold enable reduced local current density and homogen...

Effect of Dietary Potassium Restriction on Serum Potassium, Disease Progression, and Mortality in Chronic Kidney Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Low-potassium diets are recommended to reduce serum potassium (Sk) and prevent complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD), but evidence underpinning this recommendation has not been systematically reviewed and synthesized. We conducted a systematic review comparing change in Sk, CKD progression, and mortality between those on a low-potassium versus unrestricted potassium diet.

The relationship between serum potassium concentrations and electrocardiographic characteristics in 163,547 individuals from primary care.

Potassium disturbances are common and associated with increased morbidity and mortality, even in patients without prior cardiovascular disease. We examined six electrocardiographic (ECG) measures and their association to serum potassium levels.

Efficacy of modified esomeprazole-amoxicillin dual therapies for Helicobacter pylori infection: an open-label, randomized trial.

The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori resistance to amoxicillin was less than 5% in most countries. Proton pump inhibitor (PPI)-amoxicillin dual therapy dosing four times daily (q.i.d.) for 14 days could achieve an eradication rate of more than 85%. It is unclear whether dual therapy with shorter treatment duration or lower dosing frequency could also attain a satisfactory cure rate. We conducted a randomized controlled trial to assess the efficacy and safety of two modified esomeprazole-amoxicillin dual ...
