Also known as:  Cleocin.


Chloramphenicol is a prescription medication used to treat bacterial infections of the lungs, skin, blood, bones, joints, female reproductive system, and internal organs.

Chloramphenicol belongs to a group of drugs called lincomycin antibiotics. These work by stopping the growth of bacteria.

This medication is available as a vaginal cream, vaginal suppository, oral capsule, and oral liquid.

This medication is also available in injectable forms to be given directly into a vein (IV) or a muscle (IM) by a healthcare professional.

Common side effects of Chloramphenicol include nausea, vomiting, joint pain, heartburn, pain when swallowing, and white patches in the mouth.


Take Chloramphenicol exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Take the capsule with a full glass of water to keep it from irritating your throat.

Measure the oral liquid with the dosing syringe provided, or with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

Chloramphenicol is sometimes given as an injection into a muscle, or injected into a vein through an IV. You may be shown how to use injections at home. Do not self-inject this medicine if you do not understand how to give the injection and properly dispose of used needles, IV tubing, and other items used to inject the medicine.

Use a disposable needle only once. Follow any state or local laws about throwing away used needles and syringes. Use a puncture-proof "sharps" disposal container (ask your pharmacist where to get one and how to throw it away). Keep this container out of the reach of children and pets.

To make sure this medicine is not causing harmful effects, you may need frequent medical tests during treatment.

If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using Chloramphenicol.

Use this medicine for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Skipping doses may also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antibiotics. Chloramphenicol will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or a common cold.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Protect the injectable medicine from high heat.

Do not store the oral liquid in the refrigerator. Throw away any unused oral liquid after 2 weeks.


In the event the patient misses a dose of Chloramphenicol, the patient should take it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, taking another dose of Chloramphenicol may cause an overdose which can lead to serious health complications. In this case, the missed dose should be skipped entirely to avoid an overdose potential. If an overdose of Chloramphenicol is suspected the patient should seek immediate medical intervention and assessment. An overdose may involve symptoms such as changes in mood or behaviors, thoughts of self harm, suicidal thoughts, seizures, or convulsions.


Store at room temperature between 20 and 25 degrees C (68 and 77 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Experience of the diagnosis and epidemiology of Clostridium difficile in Sweden is reviewed. Samples from 5885 patients have been investigated at the National Bacteriological Laboratory in Stockholm from 1978-1983. Patients originate from all parts of the country and their number continues to increase. Cl. difficile seem to be of growing importance, especially in nosocomial infections. Most patients with antibiotic-associated diarrhoea and colitis (AAD/AAC) and Cl. difficile in their stools were above 60 years of age (63%) and there was a significant preponderance of females over males in the age groups 21-50 and above 60 years of age. The antibiotics most commonly associated with Cl. difficile enterocolitis (CDE) were penicillins, cephalosporins and clindamycin/lincomycin. On the basis of consumption clindamycin/lincomycin and cephalosporins are associated 70 and 40 times, respectively, more often than penicillins in CDE. Diagnosis of CDE relies mainly on detection of the cytotoxin (toxin B) in stool specimens. It was present in 873/4793 (18.2%) patients whereas the bacterium was found in only 12%. An immunoassay for detection of the enterotoxin (toxin A) of Cl. difficile seems to be a useful alternative to the cytotoxin assay, but some stool specimens with a low toxin B titre were negative. Five specimens negative for toxin B were positive for toxin A and came from patients where additional information suggested CDE. A serological assay for demonstration of circulating antibodies to Cl. difficile toxins has also been evaluated and is positive in about half of the cases of CDE. Antibody response seems to be absent or delayed in patients with relapse of colitis after antibiotic treatment.

The in vitro activities of two investigational quinolones, sparfloxacin (previously designated AT 4140) and PD 127391, were determined for 30 strains each of Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Mycoplasma hominis, and Ureaplasma urealyticum and compared with those of ciprofloxacin, tetracycline, clindamycin, and erythromycin. Erythromycin was the most active compound against M. pneumoniae (maximum MIC, less than 0.008 microgram/ml). PD 127391 (MICs, less than 0.008 to 0.031 microgram/ml), sparfloxacin (MICs, less than 0.008 to 0.25 microgram/ml), clindamycin (MICs, less than 0.008 to 0.5 microgram/ml), and tetracycline (MICs, 0.063 to 0.25 microgram/ml) were superior to ciprofloxacin (MICs, 0.5 to 2 microgram/ml). Sparfloxacin and PD 127391 were active against M. hominis (MICs, less than 0.008 to 0.031 microgram/ml for each) at concentrations comparable to those of clindamycin (MICs, less than 0.008 to 0.063 microgram/ml) and at concentrations lower than those of ciprofloxacin (MICs, 0.125 to 0.5 microgram/ml). As expected, M. hominis was resistant to erythromycin (MICs, 32 to greater than or equal to 256 micrograms/ml). For U. urealyticum, PD 127391 (MICs, 0.031 to 0.5 microgram/ml) and sparfloxacin (MICs, 0.063 to 1 microgram/ml) were superior to erythromycin (MICs, 0.25 to 4 micrograms/ml), ciprofloxacin (MICs, 0.5 to 8 micrograms/ml), and clindamycin (MICs, 0.25 to 64 micrograms/ml. Both new quinolones were equally active against tetracycline-susceptible as well as resistant strains of M. hominis and U. urealyticum. The possible influence of medium components and/or pH on MICs was evaluated by testing a Staphylococcus aureus reference strain with each antibiotic in SP-4 broth and 10-B broth and comparing the results with published MICs for this strain. MICs determined in 10-B broth for erythromycin were affected most. This study shows that the activities of sparfloxacin and PD 127391 are similar to one another and comparable or superior to those of other drugs used to treat mycoplasmal infections. The MICs of both new quinolones were consistently 2 to several dilutions lower than those of ciprofloxacin for each species.

We reviewed data on the treatment of bacterial vaginosis published from 1993 through 1996. For nonpregnant women, we recommend use of metronidazole (500 mg orally twice daily for 7 days), clindamycin vaginal cream (2%, once daily for 7 days), or metronidazole vaginal gel (0.75%, twice daily for 5 days) as the preferred treatment for bacterial vaginosis. For pregnant high-risk women (women with a prior preterm birth), the objective of the treatment is to prevent adverse outcomes of pregnancy, in addition to relief of symptoms. Thus, systemic therapy for possible subclinical upper tract infection as well as medication that has been studied in pregnant women are preferable. Therefore, we recommend metronidazole (250 mg orally three times a day for 7 days). For pregnant low-risk women (women without a prior preterm birth) with symptomatic disease, the main objective of the treatment is to relieve symptoms. We recommend metronidazole (250 mg orally three times a day for 7 days). Data do not support routine treatment of male sex partners.

The incidence of bacteraemia in the control, amoxicillin/clavulanate, amoxicillin, clindamycin and azithromycin groups was: 96%, 0%, 50%, 87% and 81%, respectively, at 30 s; 65%, 0%, 10%, 65% and 49% at 15 min; and 18%, 0%, 4%, 19% and 18% at 1 h. Streptococci were the most frequently identified bacteria. The percentage of positive blood cultures at 30 s post-extraction was lower in the amoxicillin/clavulanate group than in the amoxicillin group (P < 0.001). The incidence of bacteraemia in the clindamycin group was similar to that in the control group.

Ten healthy volunteers received on separate days the following regimens: imipenem 500 mg, clindamycin 600 mg, latamoxef 1 g, and metronidazole 500 mg. The antibiotics were given intravenously as an infusion over 15 min. Blood samples were obtained before and 30 min, 1 and 6 h after the start of the infusion. Serum bacteriostatic and bactericidal activities were measured against the following strains of strict anaerobes: two strains of Bacteroides fragilis, one strain each of B. vulgatus, B. thetaiotaomicron, B. oralis, Fusobacterium symbiosum, Eubacterium lentum, Clostridium perfringens, and Peptostreptococcus magnus. Sera from patients receiving clindamycin showed the highest inhibitory and bactericidal activities except against B. thetaiotaomicron and F. symbiosum. Imipenem had similar inhibitory and bactericidal activity to that shown by latamoxef. Metronidazole had a moderate activity against all strains although the activity persisted for 6 h. Latamoxef was the most active antibiotic against the test strain of C. perfringens.

Calcium ions that have been preloaded into isolated SR subfractions in the presence of ATP and pyrophosphate may be released upon addition of a large number of diverse pharmacologic substances in a manner that is effectively blocked by ruthenium red and other organic polyamines. Effective blocking substances include certain antibiotics (neomycin, gentamicin, streptomycin, clindamycin, kanamycin, and tobramycin), naturally occurring polyamines (spermine and spermidine), and a number of basic polypeptides and proteins (polylysine, polyarginine, certain histones, and protamine). These agents have only one feature in common: the presence of several amino groups. Ruthenium red, neomycin, spermine, and protamine all appear to act by blocking SR Ca2+ channels since unidirectional 45Ca2+ efflux from the vesicles is strongly inhibited by these agents. Functions ascribable to the SR Ca2+ pump are largely unaffected by these agents. Since inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate is ineffective at inducing Ca2+ release under these conditions, we conclude that these polyamines may directly block SR Ca2+ channels at very low concentrations by a mechanism unrelated to effects on inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate production.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is the most common multidrug-resistant pathogen causing nosocomial infections across the world. MRSA is not only associated with significant mortality Bioclavid Dosage and morbidity but also places a large economic strain on our health care system. MRSA isolates are also typically resistant to multiple, non-β-lactam antibiotics. We conducted a prospective study in a tertiary care hospital, to determine the prevalence of MRSA and to establish the clonal distribution of MRSA isolates recovered from various clinical specimens.

Intra-abdominal infections require treatment effective against both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Piperacillin/tazobactam, a beta-lactam/beta-lactamase-inhibitor combination, has a spectrum that includes Gram-positive and Gram-negative aerobic and anaerobic organisms. In one comparative study of piperacillin/tazobactam and gentamicin/clindamycin, 88% of patients treated with piperacillin/tazobactam had a favorable clinical outcome at endpoint compared to 74% of patients treated with gentamicin plus clindamycin. Bacteriological response at endpoint was 87% in the piperacillin/tazobactam group and 74% in the gentamicin plus clindamycin group. In a comparative trial of piperacillin/tazobactam versus imipenem/cilastatin, the clinical cure rate was 91% in the piperacillin/tazobactam group and 69% in the imipenem/cilastatin group (p = 0.005). Among microbiologically evaluable patients, the infecting organism was eradicated in 93% of piperacillin/tazobactam-treated patients compared to 76% eradication among imipenem/cilastatin-treated patients (p = 0.029). Results of these clinical trials and others have shown that piperacillin/tazobactam is a safe and effective alternative to either combination Biaxin User Reviews or monotherapy for intra-abdominal infections.

Mice were treated orally with various antibiotics to determine which members of the indigenous intestinal microflora normally suppress Candida Cefadroxil Ear Infection albicans colonization and dissemination from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The mice were given penicillin, clindamycin, vancomycin, erythromycin, or gentamicin for 3 days, and then challenged orally with C. albicans. Penicillin, clindamycin, and vancomycin, but not gentamicin or erythromycin, decreased the total anaerobic bacterial populations in the animals ceca, and increased the enteric bacilli population levels. All three of the former antibiotics allowed C. albicans to proliferate in the gut and, subsequently, disseminate from the GI tract to visceral organs. The ability of C. albicans to associate with intestinal mucosal surfaces was also tested. It was found that antibiotics which reduced anaerobic population levels, but not enteric bacilli or aerobes, also predisposed animals to mucosal association by C. albicans. It is suggested that the strictly anaerobic bacterial populations which predominate in the gut ecosystem are responsible for the inhibition of C. albicans adhesion, colonization and dissemination from the GI tract.

The increasing variety of drugs available for the treatment of bacterial infections has simultaneously increased the potential for toxicity. Neurologic toxicity of antibacterial therapy is generally underestimated in scope and severity; it may be classified as central, peripheral, or due to drug-interactions, several of which are potentially life-threatening. beta-Lactams and the quinolones are the drugs most commonly associated with seizures and encephalopathy. Drug-induced ototoxicity is common, and sensitive tests are now available for early diagnosis of both cochlear and vestibular toxicity. Testing in clinical practice is best restricted to subgroups at high risk. The aminoglycosides, tetracyclines, clindamycin, erythromycin, polymyxins, and possibly ampicillin have the potential to aggravate neuromuscular disease. Ethambutol, isoniazid, and chloramphenicol are toxic to the optic nerve; bismuth can cause a myoclonic encephalopathy. A number of less common and/or unusual toxicities are Metronidazole A Antibiotic also discussed.

Group A streptococcus (GAS)-induced toxic shock syndrome (TSS) in pregnancy is rare, but its clinical course is fulminant. The mortality rates of mother and fetus are reported to be 58 and 66%, respectively. We report a case of GAS-TSS after cesarean section. A 38-year-old pregnant woman of 38 weeks gestation was admitted to our hospital because of vomiting, fever of 39 degrees C, and continuous abdominal pain with scanty genital bleeding. She had complained of sore throat several days before. One hour after admission, external fetal monitoring revealed periodic pulse deceleration to 90 x beats min(-1). The emergent cesarean section was performed under general anesthesia. Approximately 8 hours after the cesarean section, she developed coma, shock and respiratory insufficiency requiring intubation. Streptococcus pyogens were isolated from her blood sample and the patient met criteria for GAS-TSS. She was treated with antibiotics (penicillin and clindamycin), antithrombin III, recomodulin, catecholamins, and continuous hemodialysis Cefixime Tablets Uses And Side Effects with filtration of toxins. Although the patient recovered and was discharged on 63rd day, the infant died on postpartum day 4. Early recognition and intensive treatment for GAS is recommended in a late stage pregnancy with an episode of sore throat, vomiting, high fever, strong labor pain, and DIC signs.

The activity of gatifloxacin, a new fluoroquinolone derivative, was compared with the activities of ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, amoxicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate, imipenem, clindamycin and metronidazole against 204 anaerobes isolated from clinical specimens, by MIC determination, using the reference agar dilution method. When determining the overall activity against anaerobes, the MIC50/90 (mg/L) values were amoxicillin 16/>64, amoxicillin-clavulanate 0.125/1, imipenem 0.25/0.5, clindamycin 0.5/>256, metronidazole Suprax Generic Cost 1/8, ciprofloxacin 2/32, levofloxacin 1/8 and gatifloxacin 0.5/4. The broad in vitro spectrum of gatifloxacin is promising for the treatment of mixed anaerobic infections, especially those of the respiratory tract, ear, sinus, skin and soft tissues, and bite wounds. These data suggest that gatifloxacin may have a clinical role in the treatment of infections in which anaerobic pathogens are involved.
