This review deals with tolerance of a new macrolide, roxithromycin from data collected from a number of studies in adults. A total of 2917 adults, 2519 given roxithromycin 150 mg bid, were recruited into 17 multicentre comparative or non-comparative studies. Nine studies were double-blind, against doxycycline, erythromycin estolate (EES), lymecycline or cephradine. Overall the drug was well tolerated: side-effects possibly or probably related to roxithromycin were noted in only 4.1% (120/2917) of all patients, and in 3.1% (15/480) of elderly subjects. The gastrointestinal tolerance of roxithromycin was significantly better than that of doxycycline in four trials, and better than that of erythromycin ethylsuccinate in one study. The incidence of drug-related liver function test abnormalities following roxithromycin therapy was low and compared favourably with data published on erythromycin. Roxithromycin shows a satisfactory safety profile at the recommended daily dosage of 150 mg bid in adults.

The possibility that endotoxin pretreatment could prevent the hepatotoxic effects of erythromycin estolate (EE) was investigated using the isolated perfused rat liver. The addition of E. coli endotoxin (25 micrograms/ml) to the perfusate, 30 min prior to EE administration at 150 or 200 microM, significantly ameliorated the decreases in bile and perfusate flow caused by either concentrations of the drug in control liver preparations. This phenomenon was also studied using liver isolated from rats pretreated in vivo with endotoxin for three days. In these preparations, EE at both concentrations did not alter bile flow and caused reductions of perfusate flow which were far less than those observed in untreated control livers. Furthermore, in livers from endotoxin-treated rats EE induced less reduction of bile acid excretion and, at 150 microM, it did not increase the bile to perfusate ratio of sucrose seen in control preparations after the drug, which may be an expression of altered hepatocytic membrane permeability. Since it is known that both endotoxin and EE interact with membranes, it is suggested that the "protective" effects of endotoxin may occur at the membrane level.

The release rate of procaine penicillin, erythromycin and erythromycin estolate from soluble and insoluble collagen films was investigated in vitro to develop an ocular insert for the treatment of infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis. The release rate and duration of release varied according to the selection of antibiotic and vehicle. The combination of erythromycin estolate and soluble collagen produced the most sustained drug-delivery system. However, due to the inappropriate physical properties of collagen and poor retention of ocular inserts, it was considered that the development of an antibiotic-impregnated collagen ocular insert requires further investigation.

Thirty-nine pregnant women admitted for therapeutic abortions during early or mid pregnancy were given erythromycin estolate, erythromycin base, or clindamycin hydrochloride orally in single or multiple doses. Peak serum levels of clindamycin were 3.4 to 9.0 mug/ml following a single dose of 450 mg, whereas peak serum levels of erythromycin were 0.29 to 7.2 mug/ml following 500 mg in a single dose. The individual variability of serum concentrations of erythromycin was greater than that reported in normal men and nonpregnant women, whereas the serum levels of clindamycin were rather uniform, and similar to what has been reported in nonpregnant individuals. Following multiple doses of each antibiotic, high serum levels were obtained in virtually all subjects, and urine levels were also higher. Following single doses the mean urinary recovery was 2% for erythromycin and 16.8% for clindamycin.

The efficacy of erythromycin was assessed in the treatment of 14 children aged 4 to 13 years with refractory chronic constipation, and presenting megarectum and fecal impaction. A double-blind, placebo- controlled, crossover study was conducted at the Pediatric Gastroenterology Outpatient Clinic of the University Hospital. The patients were randomized to receive placebo for 4 weeks followed by erythromycin estolate, 20 mg kg-1 day-1, divided into four oral doses for another 4 weeks, or vice versa. Patient outcome was assessed according to a clinical score from 12 (most severe clinical condition) to 0 (complete recovery). At enrollment in the study and on the occasion of follow-up medical visits at two-week intervals, patient score and laxative requirements were recorded. During the first 30 days, the mean SD clinical score for the erythromycin group (N = 6) decreased from 8.2+/-2.3 to 2.2+/-1.0 while the score for the placebo group (N = 8) decreased from 7.8+/-2.1 to 2.9+/-2.8. During the second crossover phase, the score for patients on erythromycin ranged from 2.9+/-2.8 to 2.4+/-2.1 and the score for the patients on placebo worsened from 2.2+/-1.0 to 4.3+/-2.3. There was a significant improvement in score when patients were on erythromycin (P < 0.01). Mean laxative requirement was lower when patients ingested erythromycin (P < 0.05). No erythromycin-related side effects occurred. Erythromycin was useful in this group of severely constipated children. A larger trial is needed to fully ascertain the prokinetic efficacy of this drug as an adjunct in the treatment of severe constipation in children.

All randomised and quasi-randomised controlled trials of antibiotics for treatment of, and contact prophylaxis against, whooping cough.
To determine the importance of Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Chlamydia pneumoniae in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) of children from different latitudes and to compare clinical outcome using azithromycin (AZM) versus either amoxicillin-clavulanate (A-C) or erythromycin estolate (EE).
Azithromycin used once daily for 5 days produced a satisfactory therapeutic outcome similar to those of amoxicillin/clavulanate or erythromycin given three times a day for 10 days for treatment of community-acquired pneumonia. Azithromycin had significantly fewer side effects than comparator drugs.

In an open randomized multicenter study 190 culture-positive pediatric ambulatory pertussis patients were treated for 14 days with either erythromycin estolate (EST) (n = 93; 40 mg/kg/day divided in 2 doses) or erythromycin ethylsuccinate (ETH) (n = 97; 60 mg/kg/day divided in 3 doses). On day 14 Bordetella pertussis was recovered from cultures of 2 patients (2.2%) treated with EST and 1 patient (1.0%) treated with ETH. Despite the fact that 151 patients (79.4%) had reached the early paroxysmal stage at initiation of antimicrobial therapy, clinical improvement was seen in the majority (reduced frequency and severity of coughing: EST, 77.4 and 67.7%; ETH, 74.2 and 63.9%, respectively). Drug-related side effects were noted in 11 patients (11.8%) treated with EST and 16 patients (16.5%) treated with ETH (P greater than 0.05) and consisted mainly of minor gastrointestinal complaints. Erythromycin estolate in a lower dose administered only twice a day was equivalent to erythromycin ethylsuccinate in all aspects and proved to be adequate antimicrobial treatment for pertussis patients.

Livex, a compound herbal formulation, was investigated for its possible hepatoprotective effect in Wistar rats against erythromycin estolate induced toxicity. Oral administration of Livex significantly prevented the occurrence of erythromycin estolate induced hepatic damage. The increased level of serum enzymes (aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase), bilirubin, serum and tissue cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids and free fatty acids observed in rats treated with erythromycin estolate were very much reduced in rats treated with Livex and erythromycin estolate. These biochemical observations were supplemented by histopathological examination of liver sections. Results of this study revealed that Livex could afford a significant protection against erythromycin estolate induced hepatocellular damage.

A total of 168 participants were eligible for analysis (74 treated for 7 days and 94 treated for 14 days). Bacteriological persistence (positive end of therapy culture) occurred once in each group, and bacteriological relapse (positive culture 1 week after completion of treatment) occurred in one participant treated for 7 days. The overall failure rate (persistence plus relapse) of 2.70% in the 7-day group was not different than the rate of 1.06% in the 14-day group. The study had a power of 99.99% at the 5% level to detect a difference in failure rates of 10% and a power of 80% to detect a difference of 5%. We conclude that 7 days of erythromycin estolate is as effective as 14 days for the eradication of B pertussis.

Antibiotics concentrations in middle ear fluid (MEF), saliva and tears were measured in children with persistent middle ear effusions undergoing tympanostomy tube placement. In 31 children given cefaclor, specimens of serum, saliva and MEF were collected at 0.5, 1, 2, 3 or 5 h after a dose. Another group of 37 children were randomized to receive a single dose of penicillin V, amoxicillin, ampicillin, erythromycin estolate, erythromycin ethylsuccinate, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole or cefaclor. Concentrations of antibiotics in saliva and tears bore no consistent relationship to those in MEF. Mean concentrations of all drugs in MEF were several-fold greater than the usual minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of pneumococci, but only with trimethoprim and cefaclor were they greater than in usual MIC's for Haemophilus influenzae. Concentrations of antibiotics in MEF in persistent effusions were comparable to those previously reported in acute purulent effusions.

To establish a nationwide status quo of compliance of German ambulatory pediatric patients with oral antibiotics prescribed for various bacterial infections.
The chemistry, bioavailability, and adverse effects of erythromycin base, stearate, estolate, and ethylsuccinate are reviewed. Criteria for the evaluation of erythromycin bioavailability studies include study design, patient population, meal composition and timing, and assay methodology. Based on these criteria, the bioavailability of individual erythromycin products are evaluated in this paper. Compared with other antibiotics, the erythromycins have a good safety record. However, both the estolate and ethylsuccinate forms of erythromycin may cause hepatotoxity. Considering bioavailability and adverse effect data, a specific brand of enteric-coated erythromycin base tablets is recommended for erythromycin-sensitive infections in adults. For pediatric patients, a liquid formulation of erythromycin estolate or erythromycin ethylsuccinate is recommended.
The erythromycins are broadly reviewed from a clinical viewpoint. The antimicrobial spectrum, clinical indications, pharmacokinetics and toxicity are dealt with. The usefulness of erythromycin for respiratory tract infections is stressed. New evidence to support bactericidal activity of this antibiotic is noted. There seems little reason to use the potentially hepatotoxic estolate form of erythromycin. The safety of the other forms of this antibiotic available in this country is emphasized.

Tetrahydrocurcumin (THC), one of the major metabolites of curcumin, was investigated for its possible hepatoprotective effect in Wistar rats against erythromycin estolate-induced toxicity. Oral administration of THC significantly prevented the occurrence of erythromycin estolate-induced liver damage. The increased level of serum enzymes (aspartate transaminase (AST), alanine transaminase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP)), bilirubin, cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, free fatty acids and plasma thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and hydroperoxides observed in rats treated with erythromycin estolate were very much reduced in rats treated with THC and erythromycin estolate. This biochemical observation were supplemented by histopathological examination of liver section. Results of this study revealed that THC could afford a significant protection against erthromycin estolate-induced hepatocellular damage. Tetrahydrocurcumin had a better protective effect when compared with Silymarin, a reference drug.

The hepatic clearance and the effects of a new fluorinated macrolide (P-0501A) on the functions of the isolated, perfused rat liver were compared with two known erythromycins--the base and the estolate--after 7 days of treatment (1.36 mmol/kg po daily). The in vitro metabolism of the antibiotics was induced to different extent but only the base and P-0501A were cleared from the perfusate and the liver faster than in untreated animals. In untreated rats the therapeutically active form of P-0501A was excreted in the bile more than the base and the estolate; after pretreatment, biliary excretion of all erythromycins was nearly double. The content of inactive, complexed cytochrome P-450 was increased only by the base and estolate, with various effects on microsomal activities (some induced, e.g. aminopyrine demethylation, other reduced, e.g. pentobarbital clearance). The clearance and biliary excretion of sulphobromophthalein was not affected by treatment with P-0501A or the base, but was significantly reduced by estolate.

In this study, organized and financed by the German Society for Pediatric Infectious Diseases, 42 pediatricians in private practice who were selected to represent the 3 main regions of Germany and residence in large cities or small towns, respectively, enrolled consecutive patients who had bacterial infections that required therapy with oral antibiotics. Choice of agent and duration of treatment were left to the study physicians. Compliance was measured by a standardized telephone interview on the penultimate day and a urine bioassay for antibacterial activity on the last day of the planned treatment period. Parents did not know the true purpose of the study.
Reaction mechanism of macrolide 2'-phosphotransferase [MPH(2')] from Escherichia coli to the 2'-modified macrolide antibiotics was analyzed by using microbioassay, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometric assay and mass spectrometry. It was found by microbioassay that the 2'-modified macrolide antibiotics as triacetyloleandomycin (TAO), erythromycin ethyl succinate (EME) and erythromycin estolate were inactivated with adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by MPH(2'). The NMR spectrometric assay for the analysis of the reaction with the 2'-modified macrolide antibiotics and MPH(2') was established using guanosine triphosphate, which was higher reaction rate than ATP, as a cofactor. It was clearly shown by NMR spectrometric assay and mass spectrometry that the C2'-side chain of TAO and EME was naturally released in phosphate buffer solution, and then, the C2' position was phosphorylated with GTP by MPH(2').
