metronide 600 mg side effects
Despite significant advances in current medicine and improvement of overall health education, chronic periodontitis is still a widespread disease. Losing teeth is the most serious complication of this particular illness. The aim of this study was to examine patients with chronic periodontitis in order to evaluate the efficacy of non-surgical therapy and combination of amoxicillin and metronidazole compared with cefixime, which has not been so far used for the treatment of this disease.

The purpose of this study was to analyze the response of the periapical tissue of dogs' teeth with chronic periapical lesions to endodontic treatment performed with utilization of metronidazole, calcium hydroxide, and an association of both as root canal dressings.

A. actinomycetemcomitans JP2 homotypic biofilms were more susceptible in vitro to doxycycline than amoxicillin + metronidazole.

Clarithromycin, amoxicillin, tetracycline and metronidazole are the most frequently used antimicrobials for Helicobacter pylori infection treatment. While tetracycline and amoxicillin resistance are rare, clarithromycin and metronidazole resistance vary in different populations and are considered factors for treatment failure. The aim of this study was to determine the in vitro activity of furazolidone and nitrofurantoin in 164 H. pylori clinical isolates by agar dilution and to determine the spontaneous mutation rate. Metronidazole and clarithromycin resistance were 23.77% (CI95%: 18.96-29.14) and 16.78% (CI95%: 12.64-21.62), respectively; moreover, 1.4% (CI95%: 0.38-3.54) were intermediate to clarithromycin. All the isolates were susceptible to amoxicillin and tetracycline. Furazolidone and nitrofurantoin resistance rates were 1.82% (CI95%: 0.37-5.25) and 0.6% (CI95%: 0-3.35), respectively. The three furazolidone-resistant strains were nitrofurantoine-susceptible (MIC 4 mg/l for furazolidone and 2 mg/l for nitrofurantoin) and the nitrofurantoin-resistant strains were furazolidone-susceptible (MIC 4 mg/l for nitrofurantoin and 1 mg/l for furazolidone). These four strains were metronidazole-resistant (MIC 16 mg/l). Furazolidone or nitrofurantoin spontaneous mutants were not detected in the eight H. pylori strains tested. However, mutants with resistance to metronidazole were found with all the strains with a mutation rate of 7.4 x 10(-10) to 9.4 x 10(-10). Furazolidone and nitrofurantoin showed an excellent in vitro activity against the H. pylori clinical isolates included herein, supporting the usefulness of furazolidone as second-line antimicrobial after treatment failure or as first-line therapy in populations with low economical resources.
Study selection, assessment of methodological quality, data extraction and analysis were carried out by two independent authors. Disagreements were resolved by discussion and consensus.

This study included 55 patients with papulopustular rosacea. Diagnostic efforts were focused on clinical and histological features. Patients were randomly assigned to the adapalene (n = 30) and metronidazole (n = 25) groups. Sunlight protection factor 20 cream was used to protect all patients from sunlight. The characteristics and numbers of inflammatory papules, pustules, erythema and telangiectasia were scored at baseline and after 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks. Side-effects were recorded at each visit.
The evaluation of patients with colitis of recent onset is a relatively common clinical challenge. The main considerations are infectious colitides, idiopathic IBD, ie, ulcerative and Crohn's colitis, and colonic ischemia. An initial risk assessment on the basis of such factors as concurrent symptoms in contacts, travel history, medications, and human immunodeficiency virus risk factors should be followed by a thorough clinical history, physical examination, stool studies, blood tests, and, in selected cases, endoscopic examination and serologic tests. Biopsies can be decisive in distinguishing among the different types of acute colitis and might help identify specific etiologies. The diagnostic yield of biopsies is maximized by appropriate sampling of the colonic mucosa and by sharing the clinical and endoscopic findings with the pathologist, eg, via a copy of the endoscopy report.

The addition of subgingival instillation of a 14% doxycycline gel resulted in pronounced reduction of periodontal pathogens after 3 months and stabilizing results up to 6 months after therapy. Resistance to doxycycline was not induced.

An interesting case of rectal amebic abscess is presented. Ultrasound and CT images provided the diagnosis of a cystic intramural mass at the rectal wall of a young man, who complained of pelvic pain, constipation, and fever. His clinical history of amebiasis and the finding of trophozoids and cysts at the stool swap confirmed the diagnosis. Intravenous metronidazole therapy cured the disease and led to total disappearance of the mass, and clinical well-being.
Susceptibilities to metronidazole among 109 H. pylori strains (33 H. pylori strains from Han, 31 H. pylori strains from Bai and 45 H. pylori strains from Naxi ethnic populations) were tested by Epsilometer test (E-test).
