Example text

In one patient given piperacillin/tazobactam, there were raised transaminases. In the co-amoxiclav/aminoglycoside group, acute renal insufficiency developed in two patients and possibly drug-related fever in one. Bacteriological efficacy was comparable (92% versus 96%). The authors concluded that piperacillin/tazobactam is highly efficacious in the treatment of severe pneumonia in hospitalized patients and compares favorably with the combination of co-amoxiclav plus an aminoglycoside. General adverse effects The main adverse reactions of aminoglycosides consist of kidney damage (often presenting as non-oliguric renal insufficiency) and ototoxicity, including vestibular and/or cochlear dysfunction.

The amount of amikacin sulfate that was delivered was slightly less than the amount in the infusion solution (92%), but this was considered acceptable. Drug–Drug Interactions Colistin In a prospective study in 80 patients with cystic fibrosis and normal renal function, the combination of aminoglycosides with the polymyxin antibiotic colistin may have increased the risk of nephrotoxicity; in a multiple linear regression model there was a strong correlation between the use of aminoglycosides and reduced renal function, which was potentiated by colistin (19).

Severe clinical manifestations are rare in patients treated with aminoglycosides that are administered in low doses, such as gentamicin, netilmicin, and tobramycin. In some cases the paralysis was reversed by prostigmine. Sensory systems Eyes Collagen corneal shields pre-soaked with antibiotics are used as a means of delivering drug to the cornea and anterior chamber of the eye. Gentamicin damages the primate retina, particularly by macular infarction, and amikacin can have a similar effect; a subconjunctival injection of tobramycin causes macular infarction (SEDA-19, 245).
