Twelve patients with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WM) underwent treatment with the nonmyelosuppressive combination regimen BLT-D: clarithomycin (Biaxin [BXN], Abbott Laboratories, Abbott Park, IL) 500 mg orally twice daily, low-dose thalidomide (THAL) 50 mg orally escalated to 200 mg daily, and dexamethasone (DXM) 40 mg orally once weekly all with modification for toxicity. Omeprazole (correction of omepraxole) 20 mgm orally twice daily for 2 days with the DXM, and enteric-coated aspirin 81 mg orally daily were also administered. Twelve patients have been evaluated. All had previously received at least one purine analogue or alkylating agent. Five had a reduction in either leukocytes and/or platelets prior to treatment, of which three were disease-related. Median age was 62 years. All patients received a minimum of 6 weeks of therapy. Of the 12 patients, 10 had a significant response (83%) consisting of three near complete, three major, four partial, and two minor responses. Four of five had restoration of reduced blood counts. Two with minor responses did not receive sufficient dose escalation due to toxicity. Median time on therapy was 7 months (range, 3 to 28 months). Patients were removed from therapy primarily due to neurotoxicity. Drug resistance occurred in three patients, with one transformation to large cell lymphoma. Toxicity was as follows: gastrointestinal (primarily constipation), 42%; neurological, 100%; endocrine, 42%, and thrombotic, 8%. Most toxicities were World Health Organization (WHO) grade 1 or 2; however, neurological toxicity was more prominent and severe in WM patients than in myeloma. BLT-D is effective in WM. Because of its toxicity, predominantly neurological, BLT-D may best serve as an induction regimen or to "rescue" patients with refractory disease or disease-related low counts.

This study attempted to determine the efficacy of lansoprazole plus clarithromycin therapy in the eradication of Helicobacter pylori in gastric ulcer patients. The influence of H. pylori eradication on healing and relapse of ulcers was also studied. Thirty-nine patients received either lansoprazole 30 mg daily for 8 weeks (group 1) or clarithromycin 200 mg twice daily for 2 weeks and lansoprazole 30 mg daily for 8 weeks (group 2). Before treatment, H. pylori status was evaluated by a rapid urease test and histologic examination. H. pylori clearance and eradication were evaluated by a rapid urease test, polymerase chain reaction, and a [13C]urea breath test. Clearance of H. pylori was 0% in group 1 and was 33% in group 2. Eradication of H. pylori was 0% in group 1 and 21% in group 2. Although all five ulcers were healed in patients with H. pylori eradication, ulcers were not healed in the five patients without eradication. Relapse of ulcer was observed in three patients in whom eradication had failed. In this study, for H. pylori-positive gastric ulcer patients, better results were obtained when lansoprazole plus clarithromycin therapy was used, and H. pylori eradication was achieved.

There is worldwide consensus that PPI-based triple therapy, preferably with clarithromycin and amoxycillin or clarithromycin and metronidazole, is used as first-line therapy. Quadruple therapy of PPI-BMT is the preferred rescue medication after initial failure of therapy.

Moxifloxacin is a recent fluoroquinolone with an antibacterial spectrum encompassing both aerobic Gram-negative and Gram-positive strains, as well as anaerobic bacteria. In this study the activity of moxifloxacin against Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Moraxella catarrhalis, Haemophilus influenzae, Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and effects of subinhibitory concentrations on bacterial morphology and adhesion properties were compared with those of amoxicillin, clarithromycin and ceftriaxone. The in vitro activity of moxifloxacin against Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens was equal to or better than that of comparators. Subinhibitory concentrations of moxifloxacin significantly affected bacterial morphology of S. pneumoniae, M. catarrhalis, H. influenzae and P. aeruginosa, leading to formation of spherical forms and filaments. Moreover, bacterial adhesion to buccal cells and fibroblasts was reduced after treatment with 1/4 and 1/8 X MIC of moxifloxacin. In conclusion, subinhibitory concentrations of moxifloxacin remarkably interfere with some bacterial pathogenic factors, thereby contributing to its antimicrobial activity.

The in vitro kinetic constants of CYP3A inactivation (K (I) and k (inact)) were estimated by varying the time of pre-incubation and the concentration of troleandomycin, erythromycin, clarithromycin, roxithromycin or azithromycin. CYP3A activity was determined from the measurement of testosterone 6beta-hydroxylation with human liver microsomes (HLM) and recombinant CYP3A4 as the enzyme sources. The mechanism-based pharmacokinetic model was fitted with inactivation data to predict the increase in oral area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) for midazolam.

Data on anti-H. pylori therapies reported from Asia in a large number of publications identified up to December 1998 were pooled into a few groups based on the combination of drugs used. A comparison of different groups was made by calculating the pooled eradication rates.

Initially, 196 patients were enrolled to the study. Of these, 79 H. pylori-positive patients were randomized to the erdosteine group (triple therapy consisting of pantoprazole, amoxicillin and clarithromycin plus erdosteine; n = 40) or the placebo group (triple therapy plus placebo; n = 39) for 14 days. Endoscopic biopsies and (13)C-urea breath tests were performed at entry and at 4-6 weeks after the completion of the treatment. Additionally, rapid urease tests were performed at entry.
