rodogyl antibiotics side effects
To evaluate the antimicrobial efficacy and compressive strength of conventional glass ionomer cement (GIC) containing chlorhexidine and antibiotics at varying concentrations.
The high frequency of naturally occurring, antimicrobial-resistant strains of H pylori poses a national and world-wide problem for public health.
rodogyl 20 mg
In a randomized double-blind study, 134 patients were given 500 mg metronidazole as an intravenous infusion immediately before operation for abdominal total hysterectomy and again 8 hours later and 124 patients received placebo.
rodogyl drug dosage
The mean cumulative irritancy index of metronidazole 0.75% gel was significantly lower than that of azelaic acid 15% gel and not significantly higher than the negative control product. There was increasing cumulative irritancy with azelaic acid; no cumulative irritancy was seen for either metronidazole or white petrolatum.
rodogyl 125 mg
Early treatment and compliance with the preventive program were the major determinants for preserving permanent teeth in young PLS patients.
rodogyl and alcohol
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of a new regimen in eradicating Helicobacter pylori (Hp) in patients with duodenal ulcer (DU) who were previously treated unsuccessfully with standard triple therapy (tripotassium dicitratobismuthate [TDB] 120 mg QID, metronidazole 500 mg TID, and tetracycline 500 mg QID) or proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) dual therapy (omeprazole 20 mg BID and amoxicillin 500 mg QID). The study included 133 consecutive patients aged 17 to 83 years with endoscopically diagnosed DU (diameter > or = 5 mm) in whom standard triple therapy or PPI dual therapy had failed to eradicate Hp. A rapid urease (CLO) test was performed on four biopsy specimens at study entry and at least 1 month after the end of treatment to confirm Hp colonization and eradication, respectively. Patients were considered to be Hp positive if any CLO test was positive within 2 hours, and Hp was considered to be eradicated if all CLO tests were still negative after 24 hours. In 31 randomly selected patients, Hp eradication was confirmed histologically as well. Patients were given omeprazole 60 mg/d (20 mg in the morning and 40 mg in the evening) plus amoxicillin 500 mg QID for 10 days and subsequently were given metronidazole 500 mg TID for 10 days plus TDB 120 mg QID for 6 weeks. One hundred and twenty-four patients were followed up; five (4%) withdrew because of side effects (protracted diarrhea, stomatitis, skin rashes). Per-protocol analysis showed Hp eradication in 113 of 119 patients (95%) and ulcer healing in 118 of 119 (99%). Intent-to-treat analysis showed an Hp eradication rate of 85% (113 of 133 patients) and an ulcer healing rate of 89% (118 of 133 patients). In per-therapy analysis, the Hp eradication rate was 91% (113 of 124 patients), and the ulcer healing rate was 95% (118 of 124 patients). Side effects were observed in 39 of 119 patients (33%) and were generally mild. The four-drug regimen used in this study, when given to patients previously treated unsuccessfully with standard triple therapy or PPI dual therapy, was highly effective in eradicating Hp and healing DUs and had no major side effects.
Peritoneal samples from 31 consecutive patients undergoing surgery for suspected community-acquired peritonitis were cultured according to the standard method and on AA containing one of the following five regimens: amoxicillin/clavulanic acid + gentamicin, ticarcillin/clavulanic acid + gentamicin, cefotaxime +metronidazole, piperacillin/tazobactam, or ertapenem. We compared the treatment modifications made by physicians aware only of the results of the standard method with the modifications the AA method would have indicated.
