Zocef

Zocef is used for treating bacterial infections (sinus, skin, lung, urinary tract, ear, and throat). It may also be used to treat Lyme disease and gonorrhea. Ceftin is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It works by interfering with the formation of the bacteria's cell wall so that the wall ruptures, resulting in the death of the bacteria.

Description

Zocef eye drops and eye ointment are used to treat bacterial eye infections. Eye infections are a common cause of conjunctivitis. In conjunctivitis, your eye becomes inflamed, feels gritty, and may water more than usual. The white of your eye may look red, and your eyelids can become swollen and stuck together with a discharge when you wake up in the morning. Only one eye may be infected to begin with, but it often spreads to both eyes.

Most cases of infective conjunctivitis clear within a few days without treatment. For more severe infections, or for infections which do not clear on their own, an antibiotic eye drop or ointment such as Zocef can be helpful.

Zocef works by helping to kill the bacteria which are causing the infection. It is available on prescription. You can also buy the drops and the ointment from a pharmacy, without a prescription, if it is for conjunctivitis in an adult or a child over 2 years of age. Do not use Zocef eye drops or ointment for a child under 2 years old, unless it has been prescribed by a doctor.

Dosage

Take this medication exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

You may take Zocef tablets with or without meals.

Zocef oral suspension (liquid) must be taken with food.

Shake the oral liquid well just before you measure a dose. To be sure you get the correct dose, measure the liquid with a marked measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

If you switch from using the tablet form to using the oral suspension (liquid) form of Zocef, you may not need to use the same exact dosage in number of milligrams. The medication may not be as effective unless you use the exact form and strength your doctor has prescribed.

Use this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor. Your symptoms may get better before the infection is completely treated. Zocef will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.

This medication can cause you to have false results with certain medical tests, including urine glucose (sugar) tests. Tell any doctor who treats you that you are using Zocef.

Overdose

Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine. Overdose symptoms may include seizure (black-out or convulsions).

Storage

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Keep container tightly closed. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Contraindications

Contact your doctor right away if stomach pain or cramps, severe diarrhea, or bloody stools occur during treatment or within several months after treatment with Zocef. Do not treat diarrhea without first checking with your doctor.

The tablet and oral suspension forms of Zocef are not equivalent. Do not substitute one for the other.

Zocef only works against bacteria; it does not treat viral infections (eg, the common cold).

Be sure to use Zocef for the full course of treatment. If you do not, the medicine may not clear up your infection completely. The bacteria could also become less sensitive to this or other medicines. This could make the infection harder to treat in the future.

Long-term or repeated use of Zocef may cause a second infection. Tell your doctor if signs of a second infection occur. Your medicine may need to be changed to treat this.

Diabetes patients - Zocef may cause the results of some tests for urine glucose to be wrong. Ask your doctor before you change your diet or the dose of your diabetes medicine.

Hormonal birth control (eg, birth control pills) may not work as well while you are using Zocef. To prevent pregnancy, use an extra form of birth control (eg, condoms).

Lab tests, including liver function, kidney function, and complete blood cell count, may be performed while you use Zocef. These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments.

Zocef should not be used in children younger 3 months; safety and effectiveness in these children have not been confirmed.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: If you become pregnant, contact your doctor. You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using Zocef while you are pregnant. Zocef is found in breast milk. Do not breastfeed while taking Zocef.

The concentrations of cefuroxime in human alveolar macrophages (AM), epithelial lining fluid (ELF), bronchial mucosal biopsies and serum were measured after a single dose, equivalent to 500 mg of cefuroxime base, given in the form of the orally-administered pro-drug, cefuroxime axetil. Fourteen patients undergoing fibreoptic bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage were studied. The mean ELF concentration was 0.7 mg/L, that of bronchial biopsies was 1.8 mg/kg and that of serum 3.5 mg/L. AM-associated cefuroxime was detected in nine patients. To assess the in-vitro activity of the concentrations achieved at the potential sites of infection, clinical isolates of common respiratory pathogens were exposed to two concentrations of cefuroxime, based on the observed concentrations in ELF and bronchial mucosa. ELF and mucosal site concentrations were effective against Streptococcus pneumoniae (except one strain with reduced susceptibility to benzyl penicillin) and Haemophilus influenzae. The ELF concentration was less effective against Moraxella catarrhalis.

In this multicentre, multinational, comparative, double-blind clinical trial, outpatients with both clinical signs and symptoms and radiographic evidence of acute sinusitis were randomly assigned to receive for 7 days either a twice-daily oral regimen of faropenem daloxate (300 mg) or a twice daily oral regimen of cefuroxime axetil (250 mg). Among 452 patients considered valid for clinical efficacy, faropenem daloxate treatment was found to be statistically equivalent to cefuroxime axetil (89.0% vs. 88.4%-95% CI=-5.2%; +6.4%) at the 7-16 days post-therapy assessment. At 28-35 days post-therapy, the continued clinical cure rate in the faropenem daloxate group was 92.6% and that for the cefuroxime axetil group was 94.9% (95% CI: -6.8%; +1.2%). A total of 148 organisms was obtained in 136 microbiologically valid patients (30.1%). The predominant causative organisms were Streptococcus pneumoniae (47.1%), Haemophilus influenzae (30.1%), Staphylococcus aureus (14.7%) and Moraxella catarrhalis (8.8%). The bacteriological success rate at the 7-16 days post-therapy evaluation was similar in both treatment groups: 91.5% and 90.8% in the faropenem daloxate and cefuroxime axetil groups, respectively (95% CI=-9.2%; +9.5%). Eradication or presumed eradication was detected for 97.3% and 96.3% of S. pneumoniae, 85.0% and 90.5% of H. influenzae, 88.9% and 90.9% of S. aureus and 100.0% and 83.3% of M. catarrhalis in faropenem daloxate and cefuroxime axetil recipients, respectively. At least one drug-related event was reported by 9.5% of the faropenem daloxate-treated patients and by 10.3% of those who received cefuroxime axetil. The most frequently reported drug-related events were diarrhoea (2.2% versus 2.9%), nausea/vomiting (1.5% vs. 0.7%), abdominal pain (0.7% vs 1.5%) and skin reactions (1.5% vs. 1.1%). Overall, faropenem daloxate was at least as effective clinically and bacteriologically as cefuroxime axetil and was well tolerated.

The objective of the present studies was systematic development of floating-bioadhesive gastroretentive tablets of cefuroxime axetil employing rational blend of hydrophilic polymers for attaining controlled release drug delivery. As per the QbD-based approach, the patient-centric target product profile and quality attributes of tablet were earmarked, and preliminary studies were conducted for screening the suitability of type of polymers, polymer ratio, granulation technique, and granulation time for formulation of tablets. A face-centered cubic design (FCCD) was employed for optimization of the critical material attributes, i.e., concentration of release controlling polymers, PEO 303 and HPMC K100 LV CR, and evaluating in vitro buoyancy, drug release, and ex vivo mucoadhesion strength. The optimized formulation was embarked upon through numerical optimization, which yield excellent floatation characteristic with drug release control (i.e., T 60% > 6 h) and bioadhesion strength. Drug-excipient compatibility studies through FTIR and P-XRD revealed the absence of any interaction between the drug and polymers. In vivo evaluation of the gastroretentive characteristics through X-ray imaging and in vivo pharmacokinetic studies in rabbits revealed significant extension in the rate of drug absorption (i.e., T max, K a, and MRT) from the optimized tablet formulation as compared to the marketed formulation. Successful establishment of various levels of in vitro/in vivo correlations (IVIVC) substantiated high degree of prognostic ability of in vitro dissolution conditions in predicting the in vivo performance. In a nutshell, the studies demonstrate successful development of the once-a-day gastroretentive formulations of cefuroxime axetil with controlled drug release profile and improved compliance.

High usage of antibiotics in Spain has led to an increase in resistance in urinary Escherichia coli isolates in different geographic regions. The problem of resistance in urinary E. coli in Spain was investigated by gathering a large number of isolates from 20 different sites nationwide over a 1-year period from November 2003 to October 2004 in a large population of women. The objectives of this study were to assess the resistance to the antibiotics most commonly prescribed for community-acquired urinary tract infections (UTIs), according to age and different geographical areas of Spain, and to evaluate the potential association between geographical differences in quinolone consumption and resistance to E. coli. A total of 2,292 valid E. coli strains from female outpatients were isolated and sent to a single central reference laboratory for confirmation and susceptibility testing. Of these, 2,230 isolates were available for the age analysis. A two-sided chi2 test was used to identify differences in resistance between age groups. Antibiotic units per province were purchased from IMS and consumption was expressed in units per 1,000 people per year. Univariate correlation (Pearson coefficient) between resistance to ciprofloxacin and quinolone consumption was calculated using a two-sided p-value. Resistance shown by E. coli was more common to ampicillin (52.1%) and cotrimoxazole (26%), followed by quinolones (18%), whereas resistance to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, cefuroxime-axetil and fosfomycin was less than 3%. In the subgroup of women aged >65 years, resistance to ciprofloxacin was 29% compared to 13% for the subgroup of women <65 years (p<0.001). For these same subgroups, resistance rates were 32% vs. 23% for cotrimoxazole (p<0.001) and 56% vs. 50% for ampicillin (p=0.02), respectively. Statistically significant correlations were found between consumption of quinolones and E. coli resistance to ciprofloxacin (r=0.5; p=0.025). Resistance of E. coli isolates to quinolones varied significantly according to geographical areas, ranging from a high of 16.5% and 16.6% in the southern and eastern regions of Spain, respectively, to a low of 8% in the north in women aged <65 years. Additionally, the susceptibility to quinolones of E. coli isolates recovered from women aged >65 years was significantly lower across all regions of Spain than that of isolates recovered from younger women. Fosfomycin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and cefuroxime-axetil are the most suitable antibiotics for empirical treatment in Spain given the high 18% and 26% resistance rates to quinolones and cotrimoxazole, respectively. Higher resistance rates to ciprofloxacin were associated with being aged 65 years and over. These data need to be considered when recommending empirical therapy for acute cystitis.

There is a high rate of use of antimicrobial drugs for otitis media in children. This article reviews the diagnostic considerations for acute otitis media. An extensive review of literature on this subject has been carried out in order to address the issues of indications, choice, appropriate doses of antimicrobial agents and the duration for which they should be used. It is important to distinguish acute otitis media from otitis media with effusion because antibiotics are seldom indicated for the latter condition. Oral amoxicillin remains first-line therapy for uncomplicated acute otitis media, a short course of antimicrobial therapy (five to seven days) may be appropriate in children two years of age or older with uncomplicated presentations. For clinical treatment failures after 3 days of amoxicillin, recommended antimicrobial agents include Flagyl Single Dose Bv oral amoxicillin/clavulanate, cefuroxime axetil, cefprozil, cefpodoxime proxetil, and intramuscular (i.m.) ceftriaxone. Tympanocentesis for identification of pathogens and susceptibility to antimicrobial agents is recommended for selection of third-line agents.

Untreated asymptomatic bacteriuria has been associated with acute pyelonephritis, which may have a role in many maternal and fetal complications. Acute pyelonephritis in pregnancy is related to anemia, septicemia, transient renal dysfunction, and pulmonary insufficiency. A randomized study was conducted to assess the clinical and microbiological efficacy of a single dose of fosfomycin trometamol Ciprofloxacina 200 Mg for the treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria in the second trimester of pregnancy compared with a 5-day regimen of cefuroxime axetyl. Forty-four women received fosfomycin trometamol and 40 women received cefuroxime axetyl. There were no statistically significant differences between both groups regarding the mean age and mean duration of pregnancy. Therapeutic success was achieved in 93.2% of the patients treated with fosfomycin trometamol vs 95% of those treated with cefuroxime axetyl. A single dose of fosfomycin trometamol is a safe and effective alternative in the treatment of asymptomatic urinary tract infections in the second trimester of pregnancy.

Beta-lactam antibiotics include penicillins, cephalosporins and related compounds. As a group, these drugs are active against many gram-positive, gram-negative and anaerobic organisms. Information based on "expert opinion" and antimicrobial susceptibility testing supports certain antibiotic choices for the treatment of common infections, but less evidence-based literature is available to guide treatment decisions. Evidence in the literature supports the selection of amoxicillin as first-line antibiotic therapy for acute otitis media. Alternative drugs, such as amoxicillin-clavulanate, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and cefuroxime axetil, can be used to treat resistant infections. Penicillin V remains the drug of choice for the treatment of pharyngitis caused by group A streptococci. Inexpensive narrow-spectrum drugs such as amoxicillin or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole are first-line therapy for sinusitis. Animal and human bites can be treated most effectively with amoxicillin-clavulanate. For most outpatient procedures, amoxicillin is the preferred agent for bacterial endocarditis prophylaxis. Beta-lactam antibiotics are usually not the first choice for empiric outpatient treatment of community-acquired pneumonia. Based on the literature, the role of beta-lactam antibiotics in the treatment of bronchitis, skin infections and urinary tract infections remains unclear.
