    7 Little-Known Facts about Antibiotics

    Antibiotics are powerful drugs that cure disease by damaging or killing bacteria. Penicillin, the first antibiotic, was serendipitously discovered from a mold culture in 1928. Today, hundreds of different antibiotics are applied in clinical practice to cure both minor and severe infections. Before you start taking antibiotics, there are several fundamentals you need to know […]

    Nitrofurans: Niridazole and other antibiotics

    Nitrofurans Niridazole Niridazole is a nitrothiazole derivative related to metronidazole and is widely used in some countries for the treatment of schistosomiasis. In rodent species, it has been found to affect spermatogenesis during meiosis. A study of 25 men with bilharzia in Egypt showed that a 10 day course of treatment depressed semen volume and […]

    Antibiotics: Sulphonamides

    Antibiotics: Sulphonamides Sulphasalazine Sulphasalazine has been used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease since 1942, although the first reports of sperm toxicity only appeared in 1979. Sulphasalazine is taken orally and reaches the colon intact. As a result of the action of colonic bacteria, the compound is split into its constituents sulphapyridine and 5-aminosalicylic […]

    Miscellaneous hormones

    Miscellaneous hormones Bromocriptine Bromocriptine is a dopamine agonist widely used in the treatment of hyperprolactinaemia. This disorder is characterised by amenorrhoea and galactorrhoea in women and impotence in males. Infertility is a common presentation of hyperprolactinaemia. Therapy with bromocriptine is generally highly effective in suppressing the elevated prolactin levels and this is associated with a […]

    Hormone Therapy – Progestogens

    Progestogens Until recently, natural progesterone could not be administered orally as it was broken down in the gastrointestinal tract. Micronised progesterone preparations are now available in some countries but synthetic progestogens are the most widely used. They are divided into two groups. The testosterone analogues include norethisterone, norgestrel and the norgestrel derivatives, i.e. desogestrel, norgestimate […]

    Proinflammatory cytokines

    Proinflammatory cytokines, such as IL-1P and TNF-a, have been implicated in endotoxin shock. IV administration of these cytokines induces pulmonary edema and death, similar to the septic shock syndrome. Proinflammatory cytokines stimulate the expression of iNOS and promote inflammatory processes. Neutrophil migration in the airway is increased by chemokines, such as MIP-2, derived from alveolar […]

    The risk of heparin-associated bleeding increases with the dose

    The American College of Cardiology recommends a heparin bolus of 60 to 70 U/kg (maximum dose, 5,000 U) and the infusion of 12 to 15 U/kg/h (maximum dose, 1,000 U per hour) for unstable angina and non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (MI), and somewhat lower dosing (60 U/kg bolus [maximum dose, 4,000 U], and 12 U/kg infusion (maximum dose, 1,000 U per […]

    Airway Responsiveness to Adenosine 5′-Monophosphate and Exhaled Nitric Oxide Measurements

    AMP Challenge Airway responsiveness to AMP was assessed using a standardized dosimetric method, as described in detail previously. AMP (Sigma Chemical; St. Louis, MO) was dissolved freshly in 0.9% saline solution to produce a doubling concentration range of 0.39 to 400 mg/mL. Each solution was administered from a jet nebulizer attached to a breath-activated dosimeter (model MB3; Mefar; Brescia, […]
