In a pilot study, ranitidine bismuth citrate (RBC; Pylorid, Tritec) in coprescription with clarithromycin achieved a Helicobacter pylori eradication rate (based on 13C urea breath test alone) of 83%. The aim of the current study was to validate this finding by using three diagnostic tests and a larger group of H. pylori-positive patients with active duodenal ulcer.
Eradication regimen should be decided considering the resistance to H. pylori. However, in case of unknown state of resistance, OAC can be chosen if BMT fails. Similarly, BMT can be tried in cases that OAC therapy failed. After failures of both triple therapies, quadruple therapy can be tried as the next step.

The macrolide therapy did not have a significant effect on the incidence or the susceptibility patterns of potential pathogens except for Moraxella catarrhalis. Most of children in the macrolide group possessed a normal flora compared with the control children. The risk factors for carriage of erythromycin-resistant S pneumoniae were male gender in the macrolide group and age under 6 years and use of antimicrobial drugs other than macrolides in the control group. The clinical efficacy of the therapy was independent of carriage of erythromycin-resistant S pneumoniae.

16 children consecutively presenting to otolaryngology in a tertiary referral centre over an 8-year period with CFNTB. Inclusion criteria were chronic cervicofacial lymphadenitis with either: (1) a culture positive for atypical mycobacteria (from either a lymph node or fine needle aspirate (FNA) specimen); or (2) acid-fast bacilli identified (from either a lymph node or FNA specimen); or (3) post excision histological findings consistent with mycobacterial infection (i.e. non-caseating granulomas) in the absence of other clinical features suggestive of other granulomatous conditions. Lesions with superficial skin change were treated preferentially with surgery. Children presenting with lymph nodes contained deep to sternocleidmastoid were assessed with FNA cytological and microbiological analysis and MRI or CT, and treated preferentially with antibiotics or watchful waiting.
A Haemophilus influenzae multicenter antimicrobial susceptibility surveillance was carried out. An overall beta-lactamase production rate of 25.7% was found, with significant differences between hospitals ranging between 7.9 and 47.9%. Presumable intrinsic resistance was found in 4.6% of strains. No differences in susceptibility were observed between beta-lactamase positive and beta-lactamase negative strains for all antibiotics, except for penicillin, amoxicillin and cefaclor. A higher prevalence of resistance was found for clarithromycin vs azithromycin (22.6 vs 0.7%). Differences in all these factors make surveillance essential as a guideline for empiric treatment in community-acquired respiratory tract infections.

The susceptibilities of 87 periodontitis-associated strains of Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans to clarithromycin and erythromycin were determined by standard methodology recommended for Haemophilus influenzae. For clarithromycin the MIC at which 90% of the isolates were inhibited was =2.0 microg/ml and the minimal bactericidal concentration at which 90% of the strains were killed was =4.0 microg/ml, suggesting that it would be a candidate for therapeutic trials in patients with periodontitis.
Despite the use of two-week, high-dose, quadruple and culture-guided combinations of drugs, a third treatment was frequently unsuccessful. The lowest eradication rate was obtained in patients with H. pylori strains sensitive to all antibiotics; therefore, we believe that other factors could influence eradication rates. New prospective and randomized studies are needed in this subgroup of patients to find effective treatments.

A total of 50 children with H. pylori-associated functional dyspepsia were treated with triple H. pylori eradication therapy. The mean age of the children was 5.52 ± 0.83 years, and there were 28 males and 22 females. Among the 50 H. pylori-positive children, 30 successfully achieved eradication, and 20 did not. The mean plasma ghrelin levels of group 1 were 22.17 ± 1.73 ng/L and 26.59 ± 2.05 ng/L before and after the treatment, respectively, which was a significant increase (P = 0.001). However, the mean plasma ghrelin level of group 2 before and after the H. pylori treatment was 21.34 ± 2.40 ng/L and 22.24 ± 2.10 ng/L (P = 0.785). The plasma ghrelin levels increased substantially after treatment in group 1 but showed only minor changes in group 2. Similarly, the gastric ghrelin mRNA expression in group 1 before treatment was 2.84 ± 0.08. After treatment, the level was 3.11 ± 0.65, which was significantly different (P = 0.023). The gastric ghrelin mRNA expression in group 2 did not change significantly during the treatment (2.82 ± 0.44 vs 2.79 ± 0.31, P = 0.875). The plasma ghrelin and gastric ghrelin mRNA levels in group 1 increased substantially after the treatment but did not do so in group 2. In addition, the body mass index the two groups did not differ significantly 2 mo before and after the H. pylori treatment.

High-dose inhaled corticosteroids are the first-line option for corticosteroid-dependent asthmatic patients with clear efficacy. Omalizumab is effective in reducing oral corticosteroid requirements in allergic asthma. Methotrexate, gold, and cyclosporine have corticosteroid-sparing effects clinically that must be weighed against a serious adverse effect profile. Nebulized diuretics and lidocaine, with a low adverse effect profile, offer promising results but require further study. Clarithromycin and telithromycin seem to have an independent mechanism of inflammatory modulation, but their effect on corticosteroid-dependent asthma remains to be seen. Etanercept offers only early clinical evidence of a role in corticosteroid-dependent asthma.
