After the patient was switched to pyrimethamine plus clindamycin
, his renal function persistently worsened, and a drug-induced lymphocyte stimulation test suggested that pyrimethamine was responsible for the acute renal failure.
is an antibiotic that stops the growth of acne-causing bacteria.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the marketing of India-based Zydus Cadila's Clindamycin
Phosphate and Benzoyl Peroxide Gel, it was reported on Monday.
acnes.9-11 To treat mild to moderate acne, it can be used alone or in combination with topical antibiotics and topical retinoids.12 Clindamycin
improves acne by reducing the levels of P.
This type of inducible Clindamycin
resistance cannot be detected by standard Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion method, broth microdilution testing, automated susceptibility testing devices or Epsilometer test.
Conclusion: An association of clindamycin
and ciprofloxacin resistance with CA S.
In a population-based cohort study in 139,938 liveborn singletons, there was an 81% increased risk of ventricular/septal defect (adjusted odds ratio, 1.81) associated with clindamycin
exposure during the first trimester, compared with no exposure.
At follow-up 7-10 days following the conclusion of treatment, the rates of clinical cure were 83.1% with clindamycin
and 81.7% with TMP-SMX, both significantly greater than the 68.9% cure rate with placebo (P less than .001 for both comparisons).
They found that clindamycin
and TMP/SMX were equally effective in adults, while clindamycin
in children had a slightly higher cure rate in children and more frequently prevented recurrence of infection.
"Daptomycin is a suitable once-daily alternative to vancomycin or clindamycin
in the pediatric setting, particularly for suspected or confirmed MRSA [methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus] infections," the investigators concluded.
All isolates were tested for ampicillin (10 [micro]g), cefotaxime, ceftriaxone (30[micro]g), clindamycin
(2 [micro]g), chloramphenicol (30 [micro]g), erythromycin (15 [micro]g), levofloxacin (5 [micro]g), penicillin (10 unit), vancomycin (30[micro]g),kanamycin (30[micro]g),streptomycin (10 [micro]g),gentamycin (30 [micro]g) and tetracycline (30 [micro]g).
Treatment requires surgical debridement of necrotic tissue along with antimicrobials, typically including penicillin and clindamycin
. The addition of clindamycin
to penicillin for the treatment of streptococcal TSS is recommended as adjunctive therapy after immediate source control due to its toxin suppression activity .
