What Are Options for Acne Treatment?
Discussion Acne vulgaris or acne is a problem of the pilosebaceous follicle. It occurs most prominently where sebaceous glands are abundant especially the face, neck, and upper back. Sebum production increases because of androgens. Keratin and sebum clog the pores of the pilosebaceous unit causing hyperkeratosis (clogged pilosebaceous unit = clogged pores = comedomes). Propionibacterium acnes, a gram-negative anaerobe, multiplies in the sebaceous unit causing an inflammatory reaction resulting in moderate or severe acne. Skin lesions include: Comedomal acne has comedomes White heads = closed comedomes Black heads = open...

Chemists develop simple new platform for development of macrolide antibiotics
Researchers have created a new, greatly simplified, platform for antibiotic discovery that may go a long way to solving the crisis of antibiotic resistance. In a study, researchers describe 'a platform where we assemble eight (chemical) building blocks by a simple process to make macrolide antibiotics' without using erythromycin, the original macrolide antibiotic, and the drug upon which all others in the class have been based since the early 1950s.

Antibiotic Erythromycin taken in pregnancy linked to cerebral palsy and epilepsy

Do antibiotics in pregnancy cause cerebral palsy and epilepsy?
ConclusionThe findings from this large study indicate that antibiotic use in pregnancy was not associated with an increased risk of cerebral palsy or epilepsy. The apparent increased risk of macrolides compared with penicillin is not reliable. A direct comparison between the women taking each type of antibiotic is inaccurate, as it does not take into account potential confounding factors. These include: the type and severity of the infections, which could have affected the baby, rather than the antibiotic whether the women took all of the course of antibiotic or not as a result of side effects; if stopped ...

Frequent antibiotic use linked to higher type 2 diabetes risk
Conclusion This large population-based study found a higher risk of diabetes in people taking between two and five courses of antibiotics over a year before diagnosis. This risk was even higher after more than five courses. Strengths of the study include its large sample size, direct relevance to the UK, and the accuracy of the data. Despite the strengths, the study does not prove that antibiotics cause diabetes, as its design cannot prove cause and effect. There are both plausible explanations for how antibiotic use may cause diabetes, and how the development of diabetes may cause more antibiotic use.  For example...

Antibiotic resistance continues to rise
"Antibiotic resistance continues to rise," BBC News reports as, despite warnings, the number of antibiotic prescriptions in the UK continues to soar, as do new cases of resistant bacteria. Other news reports take different slants on the story, with The Daily Telegraph blaming the rise on hospitals and out of hours GPs. The news follows the publication of a new report by Public Health England on the English surveillance programme for antimicrobial utilisation and resistance (ESPAUR), which reports the change in antibiotic prescribing and resistance over recent years. The report highligh...

Steep rise in antibiotic use for coughs and colds
ConclusionThis cross-sectional study has found the proportion of people with coughs and colds that are prescribed antibiotics rose from 36% in 1999 to 51% in 2011 – an increase of approximately 40%. This is despite the publication of guidance recommending that GPs do not prescribe antibiotics for coughs and colds. It also found substantial variation between different GP practices, with 10% of practices prescribing antibiotics for less than 32% of cases and 10% of practices prescribing antibiotics for more than 65% of cases, suggesting that substantially lower rates of prescribing could be achieved.The ...

Pets can carry the MRSA superbug
Conclusion This was a laboratory study looking at genetic similarities between the MRSA samples found in cats and dogs and those in human populations, suggesting that the infection may pass between the two. Although the results are worrying it should be noted that on an individual level, MRSA in pets is still rare. However it’s important to stick to strict hygiene practices to prevent MRSA in either the human or animal population. The results may influence future antibiotic prescribing patterns in animals as well encouraging a holistic approach towards treating infections; where we consider both the needs of humans ...

How Does Pediatric Psoriasis Present?
Discussion Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease that is chronic and relapsing with periods of remission. It occurs in genetically susceptible persons and is felt to be triggered by environmental factors including infection (especially Group A, β-hemolytic streptococcus), emotional and physical stress, and skin irritation including friction, rubbing, pressure and scratching. It is common in patients with certain HLA types including HLA-Cw*0602, HLA-Cw6, IL-15 plus others. It occurs in about 1% of the general population with two age-onset peaks: 16-22 years and ~60 years, but can occur at any age. Some studies show...

How Long Before Gastroparesis Improves?
Discussion “[Gastroparesis] (GP) is a motor and sensory disorder of the stomach characterized by delayed gastric emptying in the absence of mechanical obstruction. Symptoms classically include nausea, vomiting, early satiety, bloating, postprandial fullness, abdominal pain and weight loss….GP is often not recognized and thus can remain untreated in children.” In the adult population, the age adjusted prevalence of GP is 9.6 (for men) and 37.8 (for women) per 100,000. There is no specific prevalence data available for children. It appears from some data that GP identification is rising and some data sugge...

Use of calcium-channel blocker and antibiotic associated with small increased risk of kidney injury
Among older adults taking a calcium-channel blocker, simultaneous use of the antibiotic clarithromycin, compared with azithromycin, was associated with a small but statistically significant greater 30-day risk of hospitalization with acute kidney injury, according to a study published by JAMA. The study is being published early online to coincide with its presentation at the American Society of Nephrology's Kidney Week 2013. The commonly used antibiotics clarithromycin and erythromycin are clinically important inhibitors of the enzyme CYP3A4, while azithromycin is much less so...

Certain Antibiotics May Provide Benefit For Treatment Of Respiratory Disorder, Although Increase Risk Of Antibiotic Resistance
Among patients with the lung disorder non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis, treatment with the antibiotic azithromycin or erythromycin resulted in improvement in symptoms but also increased the risk of antibiotic resistance, according to two studies appearing in the March 27 issue of JAMA. Bronchiectasis is characterized by abnormal widening of the bronchi (air tubes that branch deep into the lungs) and can cause recurrent lung infections, a disabling cough, shortness of breath, and coughing up blood...

RCT: Azithromycin for prevention of exacerbations in severe asthma (AZISAST)
Source: Thorax Area: News Severe asthma has been shown to be a risk factor for lower respiratory tract infections (LRTI), including pneumonia. Macrolides have immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects in addition to their antibacterial effects. Maintenance treatment with has been shown to be effective in chronic neutrophilic airway diseases including cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis and diffuse panbronchiolitis. In an observational study, the benefits of short-term macrolide treatment were demonstrated in patients with severe asthma. Recently, erythromycin and azithromycin, added to usual therapy, have been shown to p...

Cholera and Diarrhea
CHOLERA and DIARRHEA At this very moment there is an outbreak of cholera in Zimbabwe– not a worldwide pandemic, but a localized epidemic. This is not a trivial point of interest, but a major news event that will not only have a dramatic impact on the population of Zimbabwe but also on the entire world as the aftermath of this epidemic will require international aid. Cholera will most likely kill thousands of people in Zimbabwe, impact tens of thousands of lives, and will continue to be a constant threat around the world and a very real concern for the adventurous and international travelers.
