Cefpodoxime proxetil (RU 51 807) is the oral prodrug of cefpodoxime (RU 51 763), a third generation cephalosporin. The antibacterial activity of cefpodoxime was compared with the activities of amoxicillin in combination with clavulanic acid (AUG), cefaclor (CCl), cefuroxime (CXM) and cefotaxime (CTX), against species of Enterobacteriaceae showing a resistance pattern against ampicillin (AMP), ticarcillin (TIC), cefalothin (CFT) and cefotaxime (CTX) respectively. For strains AMP and TIC R, CFT and CTX S, MICs 90% of cefpodoxime were 1 mg/l (E. coli), 0.5 (K. pneumoniae), 0.06 (P. mirabilis), 0.5 (Shigella sp.) and 1 (Salmonella sp.); they were 4 to 16 times as high for AUG -CCL -CXM and 4 to 16 times as low for CTX. For K. pneumoniae AMP and TIC R, CFT I/R and CTX S, similar résults were obsereved for the 5 beta-lactam antibiotics, but with an activity 10 times as low. Among the species AMP R, TIC S, CFT R and CTX S, cefpodoxime was active against P. rettgeri, P. stuartii, C. diversus, E. aerogenes and Y. enterocolitica (MICs 90% ranging from 2 to 4 mg/l; from 0.12 to 1 mg/l for CTX) and less active or inactive against P. vulgaris, E. cloacae, S. marcescens, M. morganii and E. coli (MICs 90% ranged from 16 to 32 mg/l; from 1 to 4 mg/l for CTX).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

cepodem overdose

For kinetic studies,24 Wister rats of either sex, 3 months of age, (180-210 gm) were used.(Group I-IV; n=6) Blood samples collected from each animal of Group IV through heart puncture at 0 hour to serve as predrug control. All the group (I-IV) received cefpodoxime proxetil 20 mg/kg once orally as a single dose. At the end of 1,4,12 and 24 hour post oral administration, GroupI,II,III and IVwere utilized for kinetic studies. Blood samples were collected from each animal and vital organs viz brain, lung, liver, spleen, kidney and heart were dissected out for drug analysis and determination of weight. For biochemical parameters, tissue residue and spermatozoa motility, twelve male rats were randomly divided into Groups A and B (n=6) Group B received cefpodoxime (20mg/kg orally bid 7 days) while Group A served as control. Biochemical parameters [Blood glucose, protein, Aspartate transaminase(AST), Alanine transaminase(ALT)and hemoglobin] were measured at 0 and 7 th day while sperm count (total,live and dead)and mean organ weight (study and control group) and tissue residue of drug were evaluated at the end of treatment. Absorption of cefpodoxime was observed at 2 hour and reached a maximum at 4 hour and persisted in blood till 24 hour. Elimination half life in lung was highest followed by heart, liver, kidney and spleen while t½ k in plasma was very low suggesting more affinity of cefpodoxime for tissues than blood.

A multicentre open-label, randomised trial was performed to compare the efficacy and safety of cefpodoxime proxetil bd and cefaclor tds in the treatment of acute otitis media in children. A total of 167 children aged from 1 month to 11 years were enrolled in five centres: 78 treated with cefpodoxime and 83 treated with cefaclor, were evaluated in the ITT analysis. After tympanocentesis and culture of middle ear fluid, a pathogen was isolated from 85 (53%) of the 161 evaluable patients for the ITT analysis. The organisms isolated were as follows: Streptococcus pneumoniae: (n = 33, 37.5%); Haemophilus influenzae: (n = 22, 25%); Staphylococcus aureus: (n = 15, 17.1%); Streptococcus pyogenes: (n = 8, 9.1%); Moraxella catarrhalis: (n = 2, 2.3%); others (n = 6, 6.8%). Success (defined as a satisfactory clinical outcome, either cure or improvement) was achieved at the end of treatment, in 93.6% of ther patients in the cefpodoxime group and 91.6% of the patients in the cefaclor group (P> 0.05). Clinical recurrence was identified at the follow-up visit (30 days after inclusion), in 6.4% of the cefpodoxime-treated patients and 7.2% of the cefaclor-treated patients (P> 0.05). The drugs were well tolerated by 78/79 (99%) of patients in the cefpodoxime-treated group and 80/85 (94%) in the cefaclor-treated group. The incidence of adverse effects was higher in the cefaclor group than in the cefpodoxime group, but this was not statistically significant (P > 0.05). IN conclusion, cefpodaxime proxetil administered bd is as effective as cefaclor administered tds in the treatment of acute otitis media in children. The less frequent dosing schedule of cefpodoxime (bd) compared with cefaclor (tds) appears to be more convenient for the treatment of the infections in children.

cepodem xp 325 mg

This case-control study of full-term newborns with presumed or proven bacterial infection compared the efficacy, safety and tolerability of switch antibiotic therapy and traditional completely intravenous antibiotic administration. there were 36 newborns treated with switch therapy (i.v. ampicillin + sulbactam combined with i.v. amikacin for 3 days followed by oral cefpodoxime proxetil for 5 days); there were 72 full-term newborns with the same characteristics as controls who received i.v. ampicillin + sulbactam combined with i.v. amikacin for 3 days followed by i.v. ampicillin + sulbactam alone for a further 5 days. the results showed that full-term newborns with presumed or proven bacterial infection initially treated with intravenous antibiotics can be switched to oral antibiotics after 3 days' therapy if physical and laboratory data indicate the disappearance of infection, thus significantly reducing the length of stay in the neonatal intensive care unit and significantly increasing breastfeeding, without having any negative clinical impact.

cepodem chest infection

Acute otitis media is the leading reason for antibiotic prescriptions in childhood. The increase in antibiotic resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae is generally attributed to the extensive use of antibiotics and the selective pressure on the bacterial strains of the nasopharyngeal flora.

Compliance with antibiotics is essential to ensure treatment efficacy and to prevent the emergence of bacterial resistant stains. In children who take oral form, the palatability and the frequency of administration seem to be factors important to good compliance.

Direct antiglobulin tests (DAT) and indirect antiglobulin tests were performed according to standard procedures. Tests for drug-dependent antibodies were performed in the presence and absence of the target drugs and their ex vivo antigens (in the urine of patients treated with the drugs).

A prospective economic evaluation was undertaken as part of a randomised clinical trial conducted in French general practice. Its aim was to compare the costs and therapeutic outcomes of a 5-day course of cefpodoxime proxetil 100 mg twice daily with 10-day courses of phenoxymethylpenicillin (penicillin V) 1 MIU 3 times daily and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid 500/125 mg 3 times daily for the treatment of recurrent pharyngotonsillitis in 575 adults. Over the 6-month study period, the total cost to society per patient treated with cefpodoxime proxetil was 123 French francs (FF; 1993 values) lower than that for patients treated with phenoxymethylpenicillin and FF227 lower than that for patients treated with amoxicillin-clavulanic acid. This cost saving was primarily attributable to a lower initial drug acquisition cost, and a reduction in the cost associated with lost productivity and general practitioner consultations. Furthermore, as a consequence of a lower relapse rate, the cost-saving ratio for cefpodoxime proxetil, expressed as FF per month free of recurrence, was FF50 less than for phenoxymethylpenicillin and FF60 less than for amoxicillin-clavulanic acid. Thus, a 5-day course of cefpodoxime proxetil is likely to be less costly for treatment of pharyngotonsillitis in the general practice setting than standard 10-day courses of phenoxymethylpenicillin and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid.

Decreasing the dose frequency of cefpodoxime proxetil increases patient compliance; patients prefer to take the drug once daily. It also improves the rate of bacterial killing and hastens the cure from the indications, and therefore increases compliance. The hydrophilic matrix of HPMC controlled the cefpodoxime proxetil release effectively for 24 hours; hence, the formulation can be considered as a once-daily sustained-release tablet of cefpodoxime proxetil. The formulation showed acceptable pharmacotechnical properties and assay requirements. In vitro dissolution studies indicated a sustained-release pattern throughout 24 hours of the study that was comparable to the theoretical release profile. Drug release kinetics indicated that drug release was best explained by Higuchi's equation, as these plots showed the highest linearity (r (2)=0.9734), but a close relationship was also noted with zero-order kinetics (r (2)=0.9708). Korsmeyer's plots indicated ann value of 0.57, which was indicative of an anomalous diffusion mechanism or diffusion coupled with erosion; hence, the drug release was controlled by more than one process. Hixson-Crowell plots indicated a change in surface area and diameter of the tablets with the progressive dissolution of the matrix as a function of time.

cepodem 100 mg tab 2016-04-27

Although it varies from country to country, there is a Ciprofloxacin 500 Urinary Tract Infection worrying worldwide increase in antibiotic resistance among pathogens causing otitis. This has led to a search for therapeutic alternatives to the reference treatment, which is still amoxicillin in many countries. Cefpodoxime proxetil is one such alternative. Six comparative randomized trials of cefpodoxime proxetil in childhood acute otitis media have been published or presented at international conferences. They involved a total of 1188 patients, 658 of whom received cefpodoxime proxetil and 530 of whom received the comparator drug (amoxicillin/clavulanic acid in 3 trials, cefaclor in 1, and cefixime in 2); duration of treatment varied from 5 days for cefpodoxime proxetil to 10 days for amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, and the age of the children included ranged from 2 months to 12 years. The clinical efficacy of cefpodoxime proxetil was at least equivalent to that of the comparators in 4 trials and significantly better in 2 trials. Firstly, in one study vs. amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, the superiority of cefpodoxime proxetil (8 mg/kg/day twice daily) in terms of healing at the end of treatment and in terms of the number of normal tympanograms at the follow-up visit was shown. Secondly, in a study performed by our group, vs. cefixime, cefpodoxime proxetil (8 mg/kg/day twice daily) showed a better healing rate at the end of treatment in febrile and painful acute otitis media. The microbiologic and pharmacokinetic data show that cefpodoxime proxetil is one of the most active compounds against Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

This observational study was designed to assess the acceptability of oral antibiotics (including generics) commonly prescribed to children by primary care physicians in France. It was given to 50 pediatricians and 50 GPs in private practice. For each patient, the physician Macrobid Drug and parents completed a questionnaire, and parents filled out a log for each drug intake.

cepodem tablet composition 2015-04-24

Cefpodoxime is a new oral prodrug antibiotic. Following absorption from the proximal intestine, non-specific esterases hydrolyze this cleavable ester, releasing cefpodoxime, a new broad-spectrum third-generation cephalosporin with sustained plasma levels in humans. Cefpodoxime killing kinetics were studied using an in vitro model which simulates the pharmacokinetic profile obtained in healthy volunteers given a single oral dose of cefpodoxime proxetil providing 100, 200 or 400 mg active cefpodoxime. Cefpodoxime exhibited strong antibacterial activity against tested strains of Escherichia coli, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus. These results suggest that use of two daily doses of 100 or 200 mg each are appropriate for the Oroken 800 Mg treatment of E. coli and S. pneumoniae infections in view of the pharmacokinetic properties of cefpodoxime. Less intensive therapy is probably adequate in uncomplicated community-acquired urinary tract infections. The bactericidal effect of cefpodoxime against S. aureus is prolonged due to a postantibiotic effect.

This multicenter, randomized, parallel treatment, observer-blinded study was designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of cefpodoxime proxetil (5 mg/kg twice daily for 10 days) compared with penicillin V (13.4 mg/kg three times daily for 10 days) for treatment of Group A streptococcal pharyngitis Flagyl Drug and tonsillitis in pediatric patients. Clinical and microbiologic results were evaluated before therapy, during therapy (Study Days 3 to 5), at the end of therapy (Study Days 14 to 18) and at long term follow-up (Study Days 30 to 32). Both drugs were well-tolerated in 578 patients evaluable for safety. Mild gastrointestinal complaints were noted in 6.7% of 386 cefpodoxime-treated patients and in 5.2% of 192 penicillin-treated patients. In 413 patients evaluable for efficacy, both treatment regimens resulted in comparably favorable clinical outcome; cure rates were 83.8% for 275 cefpodoxime-treated patients and 77.5% for 138 penicillin-treated patients. However, eradication of S. pyogenes at end of therapy was significantly higher with cefpodoxime (93.1%) than with penicillin (81.2%) (P < 0.01). Cefpodoxime proxetil provides an effective alternative to penicillin V for the treatment of streptococcal pharyngitis and tonsillitis.

Cefpodoxime demonstrates good in vitro activity against pathogens frequently associated with respiratory tract, urinary tract, and skin and tissue infections. It has not demonstrated greater efficacy than Metronidazole Alcohol Sick the other antibiotics to which it has been compared. The available published clinical trials are fraught with methodologic, statistical, and evaluative flaws. Thus, further trials comparing cefpodoxime with established treatments, as well as the newer cephalosporins, are needed before its place in therapy can be established.

The care strategy of pharyngitis has been changed dramatically these last years. Because of evolution of antibiotic resistance, the attitude which prevailed of the systematic treatment of pharyngitis in Ziana Topical Gel Cost order to prevent a hypothetical acute rheumatic fever, could not persist. Discrimination between pharyngitis due to group A streptococcus (GAS) and nonstreptococcal pharyngitis (usually of viral causes) cannot be made in a reliable way by the clinical signs and symptoms, even if clinical scores are used. The free availability to practitioners of GAS rapid diagnostic tests, sensitive (>90%) and specific (>95%), changes the rule by simplifying it: pharyngitis with positive test must be treated with antibiotics, those with negative test should not be received such treatment. A reduction of two thirds of antibiotics consumption for pharyngitis can be expected, while maintaining the benefit (improvement of the clinical signs, reduction of contagiousness and the complications) for the patients for whom it is necessary. Because of GAS resistance to macrolides and the absence of resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics, a compound belonging of this last family should be prescribed and for a short treatment duration: amoxicillin (50 mg/kg/j, b.i.d for 6 days), cefpodoxime proxetil (8 mg/kg/j b.i.d for 5 days), cefuroxime axetil (30 mg/kg/j b.i.d for 4 days).
