FDA Warns of Liver Failure With Telithromycin
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today completed its safety assessment of Telithromycin and is advising health practitioners and patients to be aware of rare but potentially serious health risks. Ketek (telithromycin) is the first FDA-approved antibiotic of the ketolide class. It is indicated for the treatment of acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis; acute bacterial sinusitis; and community acquired pneumonia of mild to moderate severity, including pneumonia caused by resistant strep infections. The drug has been associated with rare cases of serious liver injury and liver failure with four reported deaths and one liver transplant after the administration of the drug. The manufacturer is revising the drug labeling to address this safety concern.

Latest Research : Pharmacology
Phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (PDE-5i) produce beneficial results for wide range of conditions
Since the Food and Drug Administration gave sildenafil its approval in 1998, "erectile dysfunction" has become a household term – probably to the chagrin of many parents fielding questions from their kids watching TV. But with sildenafil and the subsequent introduction and marketing of vardenafil and tadalafil, many men have found answers to a once-unmentionable condition.

Latest Research : Pharmacology : Antibiotics
What is the optimal duration of antibiotic therapy?
Taking antibiotics for three days is just as effective for community acquired pneumonia as continuing treatment for the recommended 7-10 days, finds a study in this week’s BMJ. Shorter treatment can also help contain growing resistance rates. The study raises questions about the optimal duration of antibiotic therapy for common infections. Community acquired pneumonia is one of the most important indications for antibiotic prescriptions in hospitals. But a lack of evidence to support short course therapy means it has become accepted practice to continue treatment for days after symptoms have improved.

Latest Research : Pharmacology : Hypnotics : Ramelteon
Ramelteon shows less potential to foster abuse and dependence
As part of the effort to develop effective behavioral and medical sleep therapies, scientists consider the potential for dependence and abuse associated with prescription sleep drugs. This line of research has produced findings showing that a recently approved prescription sleep drug may spare users the potential for dependence and abuse found with other sleep aids. Laboratory studies of the effects of ramelteon suggest that the drug's targeting of the brain's melatonin receptors rather than its benzodiazepine receptors make its subjective side effects different from those of old and new sedative hypnotics.

Aspirin Protects Against Aminoglycoside Induced Hearing Loss
Around the world, inexpensive antibiotics known as aminoglycosides have been used for the past 60 years in the battles against acute infections and tuberculosis as antibacterial prophylaxis in cystic fibrosis patients and in other conditions. But for all of the good they do, the drugs also have been widely linked to irreversible hearing loss. Now, researchers at the University of Michigan's Kresge Hearing Research Institute and their Chinese colleagues, working under the leadership of Jochen Schacht, Ph.D., and Su-Hua Sha, M.D., have found that the hearing loss can be prevented in many people with the use of another inexpensive, widely available medication: aspirin. The results appear in the April 27 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
