The pharmacokinetics of erythromycin and erythromycin 2'-propanoate were studied in healthy male volunteers following single and repeated doses of erythromycin stearate tablets, erythromycin estolate capsules, and a suspension. Estolate dosages gave rise to higher plasma levels of total drug than the stearate. However, the stearate yielded higher plasma levels of erythromycin base. Absorption of all dosage forms, except the suspension, was delayed, and pharmacokinetic interpretation of both single- and multiple-dose data required incorporation of an absorption lag time. The absorption of erythromycin stearate was inhibited by food and also by low fluid volumes in fasted subjects. Absorption of erythromycin estolate was increased in the presence of food and was not greatly affected by fluid volume. Although single-dose data poorly predicted circulating levels of erythromycin following repeated doses, trends observed after single doses were maintained during chronic treatment.

One hundred and fourteen Corynebacterium diphtheriae, toxigenic, gravis type, pharyngeal carriers were identified during a diphtheria epidemic in Elgin, Texas. All carriers were treated with erythromycin estolate, 1 g/day in divided doses for 6 days. Serial pharyngeal cultures were obtained in order to monitor the bacteriological response. Seventy-two carriers had positive cultures immediately prior to the start of therapy, and only these individuals were considered in the analysis of the effects of erythromycin. Forty-eight hours after institution of therapy, 96% of the carriers had become culture negative; all were negative by the 4th day of therapy, and all remained culture negative while taking the drug. Two days after cessation of therapy, all but one (99%) were culture negative. However, upon reculture 2 weeks later, 15 (21%) had relapsed to the carrier state. There were no significant differences in the serum diphtheria antitoxin levels, immunization status, age, sex, or socioeconomic status of those who relapsed and those who remained culture negative. This study demonstrates that erythromycin is effective in converting carriers to culture-negative status, but when given for only 6 days it is associated with large numbers of relapses. Because previous studies have not included follow-up cultures 2 weeks after therapy, it is suggested that all C. diphtheriae carriers be treated with either erythromycin or penicillin and that all be recultured at a minimum of 2 weeks after completion of therapy to assure eradication of the diphtheria organisms.

The clinical pharmacology of orally administered antibiotics was investigated in 106 infants and children. The antibiotic suspensions studied were ampicillin, cephalexin, erythromycin estolate, erythromycin ethylsuccinate, penicillin G, and penicillin V. The feeding status of the patients was evaluated in relation to the concentrations of drugs in serum, saliva, and tears. Peak concentrations and area-under-the-curve values of cephalexin, penicillin V, and penicillin G were reduced 40% to 60% in patients given milk and drug concurrently. Absorption was enhanced when erythromycin ethylsuccinate was given milk. After administration of both erythromycin formulations, penicillin V and ampicillin, salivary concentrations exceeded the minimal inhibitory concentrations for most pneumococci and group A streptococci and for many meningococci. The clinical implications of these pharmacokinetic data are discussed.

The effects of subacute administration of chlorpromazine HCI (CPZ), erythromycine base and erythromycin estolate on the cholestatic response to intravenous taurolithocholate (TLC) and taurochenodeoxycholate (TCDC) in the rat were investigated. All three enhanced the recovery of bile flow after TCDC but not after TLC. Erythromycin base and estolate enhanced bile flow recovery after TCDC and potentiated the increase of plasma 5'-nucleotidase, as did CPZ. Neither erythromycin estolate nor CPZ precipitated a cholestatic response in rat maintained for 9-13 days on a diet supplemented with 0.05% lithocholic acid. It is concluded that the interaction of CPZ and erythromycins with bile salts is not based on the cholestatic properties of the drugs, and hence is not a practical way of distinguishing cholestatic from non-cholestatic drugs.

We attempted to determine the causative bacterial pathogens of impetigo in children in our area, to compare the effectiveness of three frequently used oral antimicrobial treatment regimens, and to correlate the antimicrobial sensitivity of the bacterial isolates with clinical responses to treatment. Seventy-three children with impetigo were randomly assigned to receive penicillin V potassium or cephalexin monohydrate, both administered in dosages of 40 to 50 mg/kg per day, or erythromycin estolate administered in a dosage of 30 to 40 mg/kg per day. All drugs were given in three divided doses for 10 days. Treatment failure was defined as persistence of lesions 8 to 10 days after initiation of drug therapy as determined by examiners blinded to the treatment therapies. Forty-five (62%) cultures showed Staphylococcus aureus only, 14 (19%) showed S aureus and group A beta-hemolytic streptococci, six (8%) showed group A beta-hemolytic streptococci only, and eight (11%) showed no growth or other organisms. Treatment failure occurred in six (24%) of 25 patients treated with penicillin V, one (4%) of 25 patients treated with erythromycin estolate, and no patients treated with cephalexin. We conclude that S aureus is the most common cause of impetigo in children in our study population, that cephalexin is the most effective treatment, that erythromycin estolate is nearly equally effective and may be preferred on a cost-effectiveness basis, and that penicillin V is inadequate for treatment of this infection.

Preterm birth is a significant obstetric problem in high-income countries. Genital infection including ureaplasmas are suspected of playing a role in preterm birth and preterm rupture of the membranes. Antibiotics are used to treat women with preterm prelabour rupture of the membranes and results in prolongation of pregnancy and lowers the risks of maternal and neonatal infection. However, antibiotics may be beneficial earlier in pregnancy to eradicate potentially causative agents.

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.

Erythromycin acistrate is a new 2'-acetyl esther prodrug of erythromycin, whose structure resembles that of erythromycin estolate. However, in toxicological studies, it does not have the problems of hepatotoxicity. To assess its effects on hepatic functions in clinical practice, the liver parameters of patients with respiratory tract or skin infections were monitored during therapy. In total 1549 patients were treated for 7-14 days. In addition, 127 patients with suspected viral infections served as controls. There were no significant differences in serum aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT), alanine aminotransferase (ALAT), gamma-glutamyltransferase (gamma-GT) or alkaline phosphatase (APHOS) values between the erythromycin acistrate or control groups at the beginning or end of therapy. ASAT values increased moderately in 2.4% and clearly in 0.3% of patients treated, but also decreased in 2.0%. ALAT values were moderately increased in 9.9%, clearly increased in 0.6% and normalized in 3.5% of the patients. gamma-GT values increased moderately in 3.5% and and clearly in 0.3%, but decreased to normal in 3.3% of the patients. APHOS was moderately elevated in 1.0% of the patients and normalized in 1.3%. The correlation of changes between the different liver enzymes was poor. Only ten patients (0.6%) had two or more clearly elevated liver enzyme values by the end of the therapy, of whom five had increased liver enzyme activities before the treatment, two had underlying disease explaining the changes and in only three patients out of 1549 (0.2%) could hepatic changes be attributed to erythromycin acistrate therapy. These changes were reversible. The results demonstrate the hepatic safety of erythromycin acistrate in clinical practice. Concomitant food intake did not affect the safety profile.

The simultaneous determination of erythromycin propionate and erythromycin base in serum and urine by high-performance liquid chromatography using oleandomycin as internal standard is described. The separation was achieved on a reversed-phase C18 column employing acetonitrile-0.05 M phosphate buffer (65:35), adjusted to pH 7.0, as the mobile phase with coulometric detection. Hydrolysis of the ester during blood sample collection was minimised by immediate high-speed centrifugation of collected blood samples, followed by separation and immediate freezing of the serum fraction. A solid-phase extraction procedure, combined with a simple phase-separation step was used prior to chromatographic analysis. The method has the necessary precision, sensitivity and accuracy to allow the simultaneous determination of both components in serum and urine following a single 500-mg oral dose of erythromycin estolate.

In this large, multicenter, randomized trial, we found that azithromycin is as effective as erythromycin estolate for the treatment of pertussis in children. Gastrointestinal adverse events were much more common with erythromycin treatment than azithromycin. Compliance with therapy was markedly better with azithromycin than with erythromycin in this study.
