4. Azithromycin treatment modifies airway and blood gene expression networks in neutrophilic COPD Full Text available with Trip Pro

Azithromycin treatment modifies airway and blood gene expression networks in neutrophilic COPD Long-term, low-dose azithromycin reduces exacerbation frequency in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), yet the mechanism remains unclear. This study characterised genome-wide gene expression changes in patients with neutrophilic COPD following long-term, low-dose azithromycin treatment. Patients with neutrophilic COPD (>61% or >162×104 cells per mL sputum neutrophils) were randomised (...) to receive either azithromycin or placebo for 12 weeks. Sputum and blood were obtained before and after 12 weeks of treatment. Gene expression was defined using microarrays. Networks were analysed using the Search Tool for the Retrieval of Interacting Gene database. In sputum, 403 genes were differentially expressed following azithromycin treatment (171 downregulated and 232 upregulated), and three following placebo treatment (one downregulated and two upregulated) compared to baseline (adjusted p<0.05

5. Clinical and safety outcomes of long-term azithromycin therapy in severe COPD beyond the first year of treatment. (Abstract)

Clinical and safety outcomes of long-term azithromycin therapy in severe COPD beyond the first year of treatment. Exacerbations of COPD (ECOPD) are a major cause of mortality and morbidity. Continuous cyclic azithromycin (CC-A) reduces the exacerbation rate, but it is unknown whether it remains effective and safe beyond the first year.This study was a retrospective analysis of patients with severe COPD (Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease grade D) with ≥ 4 moderate to severe (...) ECOPD who received CC-A (500 mg three times per week) as add-on therapy. Patients treated over 24 months were considered long-term continuous cyclic azithromycin (LT-CC-A) users, and ECOPD, hospitalizations, and length of hospital stays during the first, second, and third years were compared with the previous 12 months. Microbiologic monitoring, assessment of macrolide resistance, and analysis of side effects were maintained throughout the study period.A total of 109 patients with severe COPD

Treatment effectiveness of azithromycin and doxycycline in uncomplicated rectal and vaginal Chlamydia trachomatis infections in women: a multicentre observational study (FemCure). Rectal infections with Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) are prevalent in women visiting a sexually transmitted infection (STI) outpatient clinic, but it remains unclear what the most effective treatment is. We assessed the effectiveness of doxycycline and azithromycin for the treatment of rectal and vaginal chlamydia (...) in women.This study is part of a prospective multicentre cohort study (FemCure). Treatment consisted of doxycycline (100 mg twice daily for 7 days) in rectal CT positive women, and of azithromycin (1 g single dose) in vaginal positive women who were rectally untested or rectally negative. Participants self-collected rectal and vaginal samples at enrolment (treatment timepoint) and during 4 weeks of follow-up. The endpoint was microbiological cure by a negative nucleic acid amplification test at 4 weeks

9. Amoxicillin-clavulanate versus azithromycin for respiratory exacerbations in children with bronchiectasis (BEST-2): a multicentre, double-blind, non-inferiority, randomised controlled trial. (Abstract)

Amoxicillin-clavulanate versus azithromycin for respiratory exacerbations in children with bronchiectasis (BEST-2): a multicentre, double-blind, non-inferiority, randomised controlled trial. Although amoxicillin-clavulanate is the recommended first-line empirical oral antibiotic treatment for non-severe exacerbations in children with bronchiectasis, azithromycin is also often prescribed for its convenient once-daily dosing. No randomised controlled trials involving acute exacerbations (...) in children with bronchiectasis have been published to our knowledge. We hypothesised that azithromycin is non-inferior to amoxicillin-clavulanate for resolving exacerbations in children with bronchiectasis.We did this parallel-group, double-dummy, double-blind, non-inferiority randomised controlled trial in three Australian and one New Zealand hospital between April, 2012, and August, 2016. We enrolled children aged 1-19 years with radiographically proven bronchiectasis unrelated to cystic fibrosis

10. Recurrent Acute Rhinosinusitis Prevention by Azithromycin in Children with Nonallergic Rhinitis. (Abstract)

Recurrent Acute Rhinosinusitis Prevention by Azithromycin in Children with Nonallergic Rhinitis. Recurrent acute rhinosinusitis (RARS) is characterized by multiple episodes of acute rhinosinusitis between which symptoms and signs resolve completely. The role of antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent RARS in children with nonallergic rhinitis (NAR) has not been investigated.To evaluate the effect of azithromycin to prevent RARS in children with NAR.A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study (...) was conducted in NAR children (5-15 years) with RARS. Azithromycin (5 mg/kg/d) 3 d/wk for 12 months or placebo was assigned to the study group and the control group, respectively. Patients with allergic rhinitis were excluded. Number of rhinosinusitis episodes in 12 months, visual analog scale score of nasal symptoms, and adjunctive medication score were recorded.Forty patients were enrolled and 20 patients were assigned randomly to the azithromycin and placebo groups.

11. Effect of azithromycin on asthma exacerbations and quality of life in adults with persistent uncontrolled asthma (AMAZES): a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. (Abstract)

Effect of azithromycin on asthma exacerbations and quality of life in adults with persistent uncontrolled asthma (AMAZES): a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Exacerbations of asthma cause a substantial global illness burden. Adults with uncontrolled persistent asthma despite maintenance treatment require additional therapy. Since macrolide antibiotics can be used to treat persistent asthma, we aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of oral azithromycin as add-on therapy (...) in patients with uncontrolled persistent asthma on medium-to-high dose inhaled corticosteroids plus a long-acting bronchodilator.We did a randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled parallel group trial to determine whether oral azithromycin decreases the frequency of asthma exacerbations in adults (≥18 years) with symptomatic asthma despite current use of inhaled corticosteroid and long-acting bronchodilator, and who had no hearing impairment or abnormal prolongation of the corrected QT interval

12. Azithromycin use in paediatrics: A practical overview

Azithromycin use in paediatrics: A practical overview Azithromycin is an antibiotic that is commonly prescribed for upper  and lower respiratory tract infections in children. While it has proven benefits, some concerns regarding azithromycin use have arisen in recent years. This practice point considers azithromycin therapy for acute respiratory infections in otherwise healthy children. Pharmacokinetics, spectrum of activity, the problem of resistant bacteria and clinical aspects (...) are considered, along with recommendations for use and contraindications. Azithromycin should be avoided in patients with a significant risk of bacteremia. It is associated with pneumococcal resistance and, with stated exceptions, is generally not recommended for the treatment of acute pharyngitis, acute otitis media or pneumococcal community-acquired pneumonia in the paediatric population.

13. Blood eosinophil count and GOLD stage predict response to maintenance azithromycin treatment in COPD patients with frequent exacerbations. (Abstract)

Blood eosinophil count and GOLD stage predict response to maintenance azithromycin treatment in COPD patients with frequent exacerbations. Maintenance treatment with macrolides are useful in preventing COPD exacerbations. We investigated which characteristics of COPD patients with frequent exacerbations predicted the best response to maintenance treatment with azithromycin.This study was part of the COLUMBUS trial, a prospective randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in 92 COPD (...) patients with frequent exacerbations. During the 1-year treatment period, follow-up data were collected for spirometry, mMRC scores, sputum cultures and blood inflammatory markers.In the azithromycin group a significant lower number of exacerbations per patient was observed in patients with the following characteristics: baseline blood eosinophil count ≥2.0% (x̄ = 1.26), compared to an eosinophil count < 2.0% (x̄ = 2.50; p = 0.02), GOLD stage 1-2 (x̄ = 1.06), versus GOLD stage 4 (x̄ = 2.62; p = 0.02

15. Population Pharmacokinetics and Dosing Optimization of Azithromycin in Children with Community-Acquired Pneumonia. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Population Pharmacokinetics and Dosing Optimization of Azithromycin in Children with Community-Acquired Pneumonia. Azithromycin is extensively used in children with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). Currently, the intravenous azithromycin is used off-label in children partly due to lacking of pharmacokinetic data. Our objective was to evaluate the population pharmacokinetics (PPK) and optimize dose strategy in order to improve treatment in this distinctive population. This was a prospective (...) aminotransferase (ALT) had significant effects on azithromycin pharmacokinetics, yielding a 24% decrease of clearance in patients with ALT of >40. Monte Carlo simulation showed that for children with normal liver function, a loading-dose strategy (a loading dose of 15 mg/kg of body weight followed by maintenance doses of 10 mg/kg) would achieve the ratio of the area under free drug plasma concentration-time curve over 24 h (fAUC) to MIC90 (fAUC/MIC) target of 3 h in 53.2% of hypothetical patients, using

16. Clinical Inquiries: Does prophylactic azithromycin reduce the number of COPD exacerbations or hospitalizations? (Abstract)

Clinical Inquiries: Does prophylactic azithromycin reduce the number of COPD exacerbations or hospitalizations? Yes for exacerbations, no for hospitalizations. Prophylactic azithro-mycin reduces the number of exacerbations by about 25%. It also extends the time between exacerbations by approximately 90 days for patients with moderate-to-severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Azithromycin benefits patients who are >65 years, patients with Global Initiative for Obstructive Lung (...) Disease (GOLD) stage II or III COPD, former smokers, and patients using long-term oxygen; it doesn't benefit patients ≤65 years, patients with GOLD stage IV COPD, current smokers, or patients not using oxygen (strength of recommendation [SOR]: B, randomized controlled trials [RCTs]). Prophylactic azithromycin doesn't reduce hospitalizations overall (SOR: B, single small RCT).

17. Azithromycin treatment in children hospitalized with asthma: a retrospective cohort study. (Abstract)

Azithromycin treatment in children hospitalized with asthma: a retrospective cohort study. Azithromycin has anti-inflammatory properties in the lungs and decreases the duration of asthma-like episodes in children. We sought to evaluate length of stay (LOS) and readmission rates of children receiving azithromycin therapy during hospitalization for acute asthma exacerbations.This was a retrospective cohort study at an urban, quaternary-care children's hospital including patients under 18 years (...) old hospitalized for asthma, without concurrent infection, from 2002 to 2011. The primary predictor was azithromycin therapy administered within 48 hours of admission. The primary outcome was LOS and the secondary outcomes were 7, 30, and 90-day hospital readmission rates for asthma.Azithromycin therapy was administered to 174 (3%) of 5335 unique patients admitted for asthma, without concurrent infection, over the 10-year period. The overall median LOS was 2.3 days [Interquartile range, 1.8-3.1

18. Randomized, open-label, multicenter study of azithromycin compared with doxycycline for treating anorectal Chlamydia trachomatis infection concomitant to a vaginal infection (CHLAZIDOXY study). Full Text available with Trip Pro

Randomized, open-label, multicenter study of azithromycin compared with doxycycline for treating anorectal Chlamydia trachomatis infection concomitant to a vaginal infection (CHLAZIDOXY study). Chlamydia trachomatis can lead to a persistent infection in the lower gastrointestinal tract, suggesting a potential role of autoinoculation of cervical chlamydial infection from the rectal site, contributing to repeat infections. Moreover, around 75% of women with urogenital C. trachomatis have (...) concurrent anorectal infection. Current treatment guidelines for urogenital C. trachomatis infection recommend either a single 1 g dose of azithromycin or doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 7 days. Doxycycline appears to be more effective in treating anorectal infections as suggested in a population of men who have sex with men, but no randomized controlled trial (RCT) had directly compared azithromycin with doxycycline for the treatment of rectal infections. We propose an open-label RCT to compare
