Concentrations of erythromycin were measured in serum and tonsil from children who had received either the estolate or ethyl succinate suspension before surgery. The in vitro assay measured total erythromycin activity against a group A beta hemolytic streptococcus. Levels of erythromycin in serum and tonsil after single and multiple doses of the estolate were significantly higher than those after administration of the ethyl succinate. The therapeutic implications of these findings are unknown.

To establish a nationwide status quo of compliance of German ambulatory pediatric patients with oral antibiotics prescribed for various bacterial infections.
Seventeen (36.2%) of the 47 patients had a positive culture the morning after initiating antibiotic therapy. However, thirty-nine (83%) of the patients became "culture negative" within the first 24 hours. Neither the time interval to the first negative culture nor the presence or absence of group A streptococcal organisms on any single convalescent culture could be predicted by clinical findings. Six of the eight children who failed to convert to a "negative" throat culture within 24 hours of initiating therapy were receiving erythromycin. We could detect no difference in either time to conversion to a negative culture or the presence of a positive culture 24 hours after starting antibiotics between those who demonstrated a significant antibody increase and those who did not.

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.

A combined cholestatic and hepatocellular injury occurred in nine patients, following therapy with erythromycin estolate (EE) or other erythromycin derivatives. Eight of the nine patients developed jaundice within three weeks after initiation of treatment; pain was one of the main symptoms in five patients while fever and itching were noted in four patients. Symptoms and signs subsided and abnormal tests of liver function returned to normal after withdrawal of the drug. The major histologic finding was cholestasis, but the majority of cases also had evidence of hepatocellular injury of variable severity; one biopsy specimen showed centrilobular necrosis. Ultrastructural findings in one case included changes related to cholestasis as well as hepatocellular injury with striking mitochondrial abnormalities. Our data are compared with those of the literature, with special reference to morphologic features.
Plasma concentrations of erythromycin A remained > 0.25 microg/ml (reported minimum inhibitory concentration for Rhodococcus equi) for at least 4 hours after intragastric administration of erythromycin phosphate or erythromycin estolate, suggesting that the recommended dosage for either formulation (25 mg/kg, q 6 h) should be adequate for treatment of R equi infections in foals.

The absorption, excretion, and metabolism of [1-14C]lauryl sulfate as either the sodium or propionyl erythromycin salt has been studied in the rat and man. In the rat 88% of the radiolabel from propionyl erythromycin [1-14C]lauryl sulfate was excreted in the urine in the 24-hr period following a single oral dose. More than 95% of the radiolabel was excreted as the metabolite butyric acid 4-sulfate. This metabolite was shown to be derived from carbons 1-4 of the lauryl sulfate moiety. There was no evidence of sulfate cleavage in the rat. In man 51-59% of the administered ratioactivity was recovered in the urine. The major excretion product was butyric acid 4-sulfate accounting for approximately 95% of urinary radioactivity. The remainder was unchanged lauryl sulfate. A significant portion of the radiolabeled propionyl erythromycin lauryl sulfate was converted to 14CO2 indicating that the sulfate linkage was cleaved. A minimum value of 9-16% of the dose was metabolized in this manner.
The management of the wound at the time of colostomy closure has been controversial, and wound infection is a frequently cited complication of this procedure. We have conducted a prospective randomized study of colostomy wound closure in 105 patients with three study groups: (1) primary closure (n = 38); (2) primary closure with subcutaneous drains (n = 29); and (3) delayed primary closure (n = 38). All patients had mechanical bowel preparation with whole gut lavage as well as oral neomycin sulfate/erythromycin estolate and perioperative parenteral cefazolin sodium (Ancef). Five wound infections (4.8%) occurred. Three infections were in the delayed primary closure group and one infection in each of the other two study groups. No statistical difference in wound infection was demonstrated. On the basis of the findings in this study, we would not recommend delayed primary closure for the management of colostomy closure wounds when careful mechanical and antibiotic preparation has been utilized.

Preterm birth is a significant perinatal problem contributing to perinatal morbidity and mortality. Heavy vaginal ureaplasma colonisation is suspected of playing a role in preterm birth and preterm rupture of the membranes. Antibiotics are used to treat infections and have been used to treat pregnant women with preterm prelabour rupture of the membranes, resulting in some short-term improvements. However, the benefit of using antibiotics in early pregnancy to treat heavy vaginal colonisation is unclear.

A randomized double-blind trial of 152 men with gonococcal urethritis compared the therapeutic efficacy of erythromycin estolate and erythromycin base. Twenty-one of 86 (24%) men treated with the estolate and 15 of 66 (23%) treated with the base had recurrent or persistent gonococcal infection when seen after a 9-g course of erythromycin. The serum erythromycin activity among estolate-treated patients (3.57 +/- 0.84 microgram/ml) was nearly twice that for base-treated patients (1.76 +/- 0.80 microgram/ml). Our findings do not support routine use of erythromycin for treatment of pregnant, penicillin-allergic patients.
