The objective of this study was the bioequivalence of a potential generic 250 mg clarithromycin tablet formulation compared with Abbott Laboratories 250 mg clarithromycin tablet, Biaxin® ...
Clarithromycin is a potent inhibitor of the activity of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 and P-glycoprotein (P-gp). CYP 3A4 plays a role in the metabolism of colchicine and P-gp is responsible f...
MAC lung infections are a growing public health problem. The ATS / IDSA 2007 guidelines for the treatment of these non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections recommend the use of a macrolide...
Use of oral clarithromycin for treatment of chronic lung disease due to Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare and other non-tuberculous Mycobacteria
A growing body of evidence links Chlamydia pneumoniae to the progression of coronary heart disease. The purpose of this study is to determine the positive and negative effect of 14 days tr...
Clarithromycin-containing bismuth quadruple therapy has been recommended as the first-line therapy for H pylori infection in China. However, its expensive cost and high antibiotic-related adverse rea...
The aim of this systematic review (SR) was to assess the safety and efficacy of oral clarithromycin for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).
Antibiotic resistance is the most important factor leading to the failure of eradication regimens. This review focuses on the prevalence of primary and secondary resistance to clarithromycin, metroni...
Analysis of drug-susceptibility patterns and gene sequences associated with clarithromycin and amikacin resistance in serial Mycobacterium abscessus isolates from clinical specimens from Northeast Thailand.
Mycobacterium abscessus is an important infectious agent highly associated with drug resistance and treatment failure. We investigated the drug resistance situation of M. abscessus in Northeast Thaila...
Antimicrobial resistance to clarithromycin and metronidazole significantly affects the cure rate of standard therapies for Helicobacter pylori infection. We tested whether different MIC levels of resi...
A semisynthetic macrolide antibiotic derived from ERYTHROMYCIN that is active against a variety of microorganisms. It can inhibit protein synthesis in bacteria by reversibly binding to the 50S ribosomal subunits. This inhibits the translocation of aminoacyl transfer-RNA and prevents peptide chain elongation.
A condition caused by the overproduction of ALDOSTERONE. It is characterized by sodium retention and potassium excretion with resultant HYPERTENSION and HYPOKALEMIA.
Excess production of ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES such as ALDOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and/or ANDROSTENEDIONE. Hyperadrenal syndromes include CUSHING SYNDROME; HYPERALDOSTERONISM; and VIRILISM.
19-Iodocholest-5-en-3 beta-ol. A cholesterol derivative usually substituted with radioactive iodine in the 19 position. The compound is an adrenal cortex scanning agent used in the assessment of patients suspected of having Cushing's syndrome, hyperaldosteronism, pheochromocytoma and adrenal remnants following total adrenalectomy.
A malignant neoplasm of the ADRENAL CORTEX. Adrenocortical carcinomas are unencapsulated anaplastic (ANAPLASIA) masses sometimes exceeding 20 cm or 200 g. They are more likely to be functional than nonfunctional, and produce ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES that may result in hypercortisolism (CUSHING SYNDROME); HYPERALDOSTERONISM; and/or VIRILISM.
