Although the 2-week regimen of pantoprazole-based triple therapy was effective for H. pylori eradication in clarithromycin-sensitive cases, highly effective H. pylori eradication protocols are needed for clarithromycin-resistant ones.

In a prospective multicentre study H. pylori was cultivated from biopsies and susceptibility testing was performed according to EUCAST. Resistance to clarithromycin and levofloxacin was determined by sequencing of the resistance-determining regions of 23S rRNA and gyrA genes. cagA, vacA and babA2 genotypes were determined.

The activity of a new macrolide, TE-031 (A-56268), against Legionella pneumophila in vitro was superior to the activities of roxithromycin, erythromycin and josamycin. The tissue concentrations of TE-031 in guinea pigs after oral administration (20 mg/kg) was much higher than those of roxithromycin, erythromycin and josamycin. The maximum concentration of TE-031 was 107.0 mg/kg in the lung, and 1.4 mg/l in the serum. The uptake of macrolides by cells collected by bronchoalveolar lavage in guinea pigs was measured by a radioisotopic method. The maximum ratios of intracellular to extracellular concentration of TE-031, roxithromycin, josamycin and erythromycin were 71.9, 24.8, 39.7 and 7.9, respectively. In infected guinea pigs, with the exception of erythromycin, the ratios were reduced to approximately half the values in normal animals. TE-031 showed greater therapeutic efficacy against experimental L. pneumophila pneumonia than roxithromycin, erythromycin and josamycin. TE-031 is a promising drug for treatment of legionella pneumonia and should be investigated in a clinical study on human Legionnaires' disease.

To systematically review the efficacy and tolerance of moxifloxacin-based triple therapy, and to conduct a meta-analysis of studies comparing this regimen with clarithromycin-based triple therapy.

Three-day treatment with azithromycin 500 mg once daily is equivalent to a 10-day treatment with clarithromycin 500 mg twice daily in adult patients with AECB.

To evaluate the efficacy of sequential vs hybrid therapy in patients with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection.
Because Helicobacter pylori creates a well-sheltered microenvironment within the gastric mucus layer, it has been speculated that the disruption of this space by a mucolytic agent may enhance the eradication rate. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of erdosteine, a strong mucolytic agent, on the effectiveness of PPI-based, first-line triple therapy in the eradication of H. pylori.

Of 286 children with confirmed nontuberculous mycobacteria infection, 14 (4.9%; median age 50 mos, range 9-156 mos; 5 [36%] male, 9 [64%] female) had nontuberculous mycobacteria facial skin lesions. Six (43%) had lesions on the cheek and five (36%) in the medial eye corner. Polymerase chain reaction results confirmed the presence of Mycobacterium haemophilum in eight patients (57%) and Mycobacterium avium in six patients (43%). The facial lesions were treated using a combination of clarithromycin and rifabutin for 12 weeks, with a median healing time of 4 months.

The overall healing rate (per protocol) at five weeks (116/128) was 90.6% while in 85.5% (65/76) eradication was successful. The healing rate for the H. pylori eradicated patients (58/65) was 89.2%. For those who failed eradication (8/11) it was 72.7% (NS), while for patients not infected with H. pylori at entry to the study (50/52) it was 96.2% (NS). An intention to treat analysis showed that after 20 weeks of omeprazole prophylaxis with the 10mg dose 86% (43/50) had maintained healing while for the 20mg dose a similar figure was observed (87.9; 58/66). Only three patients in the two groups (pp) had persistent H. pylori infection, all of whom relapsed. No patients discontinued treatment because of adverse effects of the drugs.
