Little information regarding the metabolic pathways of pharmaceutical agents administered to dogs, or the inhibition of those metabolic pathways, is available. Without this information, it is difficult to assess how combinations of drugs, whether new or old or approved or nonapproved, may increase the risk for metabolic drug-drug interactions in dogs. Because mammalian xenobiotic metabolism pathways often involve the hepatic cytochrome P450 (P450) monooxgenases, canine liver microsome P450 inhibition screens were tested to evaluate the potential metabolic drug interaction risk of commonly used veterinary medicines. A probe substrate cocktail was developed for four of the five major hepatic canine P450s and used to evaluate their inhibition by 45 canine therapeutic agents in a single-point IC(50) screen. Moderate inhibitors (>25%) were further characterized with an automated ninepoint IC(50) assay that identified ketoconazole, clomipramine, and loperamide as submicromolar CYP2D15 inhibitors. Additional inhibitors belonged to the antiemetic, antimitotic, and anxiolytic therapeutic classes. According to the marker activities, the relative frequency of P450 inhibition by isoform followed the sequence CYP2D15 > CYP2B11 > CYP2C21/41 > CYP3A12/26 > CYP1A1/2. The findings presented suggest there is some overlap in canine and human P450 inhibition specificity. However, occasional differences may give human drugs used off-label in dogs unexpected P450 inhibition profiles and, therefore, cause an unexpected drug-drug interaction risk.

In six published phase II trials, irinotecan (CPT-II; Camptosar; Pharmacia & Upjohn Co, Kalamazoo, MI) has demonstrated consistent activity with response rates of approximately 13% to 27% in patients with advanced colorectal cancer (CRC) refractory to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) therapy. Similar response and median survival rates have been achieved using either the US regimen (once a week for 4 weeks followed by a 2-week rest) or the European regimen (once-every-3-week schedule). The optimal administration schedule for irinotecan is uncertain. Phase II evaluation of a biweekly administration schedule in a similar group of patients produced similar response rates. With all schedules tested, the most common toxicities remain delayed diarrhea, neutropenia, and nausea and vomiting. The most common toxicity, late diarrhea, can be ameliorated using high-dose loperamide. Irinotecan has been explored as a single agent in patients with newly diagnosed CRC and has generated response rates in the range of 19% to 32% and a median survival time of approximately 12 months, suggesting a level of antitumor activity similar to that observed with 5-FU and leucovorin. Two recently completed phase III studies in 5-FU-refractory patients have shown that treatment with irinotecan confers a survival advantage compared with treatment with infusional 5-FU or best supportive care. Current studies focus on the activity of irinotecan as part of combined chemotherapy in patients with newly diagnosed advanced-stage CRC, as part of combined-modality therapy with radiation therapy, and as adjuvant chemotherapy for patients with locally advanced CRC.

imodium review

Oral tropisetron, a 5-hydroxytryptamine type 3 (serotonin3) [5-HT3]-receptor antagonist, at a dose of 5mg daily was evaluated as antiemetic prophylaxis during postoperative abdominal irradiation. 20 women with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage I to III ovarian carcinoma were included. 12 women received irradiation of whole abdominal fields and 8 of lower abdominal/pelvic fields. Efficacy and adverse events were recorded by the patients in diary-form booklets. The cumulative weekly incidence of patients with nausea, which was generally mild and of short duration, increased from 30% at the start of radiotherapy to 54% at the end of treatment. Episodes of vomiting occurred in less than 10% of the patients. Diarrhoea was common towards the end of the radiotherapy courses, and the proportion of patients needing extra antidiarrhoeal medication (loperamide) increased from 38% during the first week to 100% at the end of the radiotherapy course. Mean weight loss was 1.2kg during the 5- to 6-week course. Overall ratings for quality of life were excellent or good in 75 to 85% of patients. Tropisetron seems to be a promising and well tolerated drug in conjunction with extended radiotherapy of abdominal fields. This was an open study, establishing the methodology for long term follow-up of patients during fractionated radiotherapy.

A total of 10 publications were included in the analysis. When administered three times daily for 3 days, rifaximin is superior to placebo or loperamide; it is at least as effective as ciprofloxacin in reducing duration of illness and restoring wellbeing in patients with travellers' diarrhoea, both with and without identification of a pathogen, as well as in diarrhoea caused by Escherichia coli infection. Rifaximin demonstrates only minimal potential for development of bacterial resistance and for cytochrome P450-mediated drug-drug interactions, and its tolerability profile is similar to that of placebo.

BW 942C is a novel enkephalinlike pentapeptide that has been shown to have antidiarrheal action in model systems. The effect of BW 942C on rabbit ileal electrolyte transport was studied to gain insight into the mechanism of the antidiarrheal action of opiate-like compounds. Multiple effects were observed, differing with the basal state of the tissue. BW 942C increased Na absorption in tissues that were not absorbing in the basal state, whereas it had little effect on Na absorption in tissues that were previously absorbing at moderate to high rates (greater than 1 microEq/h.cm2. It increased Cl absorption and caused a dose-related decrease in short-circuit current in all tissues. This effect was reversed or inhibited by naloxone (10(-5) M), suggesting that it is mediated by opiate receptors. No significant change in residual flux was noted. BW 942C was effective from both the serosal and mucosal side; however, it required a 2-log higher dose on the mucosal side (10(-4) M, maximal) to achieve a response similar to that observed with serosal application (10(-6) M, maximal). The ability of BW 942C to alter stimulated secretion was studied using theophylline, prostaglandin E2, vasoactive intestinal peptide, and bethanechol. There was significantly less Cl secretion in BW 942C-treated tissues than in control tissues after stimulation with prostaglandin E2 (10(-7) M). However, this effect was not apparent at higher doses of prostaglandin E2 and there was no inhibition of the short-circuit current response to any of the secretory stimuli by BW 942C. Loperamide was also found to be unable to inhibit the Cl secretion or change in short-circuit current stimulated by theophylline. Although opiates have been shown to be moderately effective antidiarrheal agents, their ability to influence mucosal electrolyte transport is weak and may only account for part of their antidiarrheal action.

From the leaves of Ageratina cylindrica, in addition to the described [(2S)-2-{4-formyl-5-hydroxy-2-[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]phenyl}oxiran-2-yl]methyl benzoate (cylindrinol A, 8), seven new thymol derivatives were isolated and named cylindrinols B - H (1 - 7). The structures of these compounds were established as (2-{4-(hydroxymethyl)-2-[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]phenyl}oxiran-2-yl)methyl benzoate (1), (2-{4-formyl-2-[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]phenyl}oxiran-2-yl)methyl benzoate (2), (2-{4-[(acetyloxy)methyl]-2-[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]phenyl}oxiran-2-yl)methyl benzoate (3), [2-(2-[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]-4-{[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]methyl}phenyl)oxiran-2-yl]methyl benzoate (4), [2-(5-hydroxy-2-[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]-4-{[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]methyl}phenyl)oxiran-2-yl]methyl benzoate (5), 2-{4-(hydroxymethyl)-2-[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]phenyl}prop-2-en-1-yl benzoate (6), and 2-hydroxy-2-[2-hydroxy-4-(hydroxymethyl)-phenyl]-3-[(2-methylpropanoyl)oxy]propyl benzoate (7), by spectroscopic means. Compounds 1 showed moderate antiprotozoal activity on both protozoa. Compounds 4 and 5 showed selectivity on Giardia lamblia trophozoites. All isolated compounds were less active than two antiprotozoal drugs, metronidazole and emetine, used as positive controls. Compound 5 exhibited a high inhibitory effect on hyperpropulsive movement of the small intestine in rats; its effect was best than loperamide, antidiarrheal drug used as a positive control.

Complete resolution of diarrhea within 1 to 4 weeks from injection time was seen in all cases with octreotide LAR 30 mg. With a subsequent prophylactic injection once every 28 days, CID was limited to NCI grade 1. This resulted in increased patient quality of life (QOL) and allowed better patient compliance with therapy. Therapy could then be completed at full dose and on schedule after resolution of often debilitating diarrhea.

Loperamide plasma concentrations with quinidine co-administration were about twice as high as those without quinidine. The ABCB1 haplotype G2677/T3435 was associated with the highest loperamide plasma concentrations, which were about 1.5 times higher than in non-carriers of this haplotype. Plasma concentrations of quinidine did not differ among carriers and non-carriers of genetic variants. When quinidine was co-administered with loperamide, pupil size decreased. Without quinidine it changed only minimally. The ABCB1 TT3435 genotype was associated with the most pronounced increase of the miotic effects of loperamide when quinidine was co-administered. This was accompanied by a tendency toward higher plasma loperamide in TT3435 carriers.

Looking at the worldwide emergency of antimicrobial resistance, international travellers appear to have a central role in spreading the bacteria across the globe. Travellers' diarrhoea (TD) is the most common disease encountered by visitors to the (sub)tropics. Both TD and its treatment with antibiotics have proved significant independent risk factors of colonization by resistant intestinal bacteria while travelling. Travellers should therefore be given preventive advice regarding TD and cautioned about taking antibiotics: mild or moderate TD does not require antibiotics. Logical alternatives are medications with effects on gastrointestinal function, such as loperamide. The present review explores literature on loperamide in treating TD. Adhering to manufacturer's dosage recommendations, loperamide offers a safe and effective alternative for relieving mild and moderate symptoms. Moreover, loperamide taken singly does no predispose to contracting MDR bacteria. Most importantly, we found no proof that would show antibiotics to be significantly more effective than loperamide in treating mild/moderate TD.

[(11)C]N-desmethyl-Loperamide ([(11)C]dLop) is used in positron emission tomography (PET) to measure the in vivo activity of efflux transporters that block the passage of drugs across the blood-brain barrier. The three most prevalent ATP-binding cassette efflux transporters at the blood-brain barrier are P-glycoprotein (P-gp), multidrug resistance protein 1 (Mrp1), and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP). We sought to measure the selectivity of dLop among these three transporters. The selectivity of dLop at low concentrations (< or =1 nM) was measured both as the accumulation of [(3)H]dLop in human cells that overexpress each transporter and as the uptake of [(11)C]dLop in brains of mice that lack genes encoding P-gp, Mrp1, or BCRP. The selectivity of dLop at high concentrations (> or =20 microM) was measured as the inhibition of uptake of a fluorescent substrate and the change in cytotoxicity of drugs effluxed at each transporter. Accumulation of [(3)H]dLop was lowest in cells overexpressing P-gp, and the uptake of [(11)C]dLop was highest in brains of mice lacking P-gp. At high concentrations, dLop selectively inhibited P-gp function and also decreased the resistance of only the P-gp-expressing cells to cytotoxic agents. dLop is selective for P-gp among these three transporters, but its activity is dependent on concentration. At low concentrations (< or =1 nM), dLop acts only as a substrate; at high concentrations (> or =20 microM), it acts as both a substrate and an inhibitor (i.e., a competitive substrate). Because low concentrations of radiotracer are used for PET imaging, [(11)C]dLop acts selectively and only as a substrate for P-gp.

Diarrhea, mostly due to bacterial infection of the gut, is the most frequent health complaint in the international traveler, affecting 20-70% of the traveling population depending on the destination and other factors. It is usually benign and self-limiting in nature, but symptoms may occasionally be distressing causing modifications of normal activities and sometimes confinement to bed or hospitalization. Prevention of traveler's diarrhea should ideally be based on dietary restrictions, but experience shows that this target is extremely difficult to achieve. Antibiotic chemoprophylaxis should be restricted to selected groups of travelers at risk of severe complications of diarrhea or when diarrhea-driven alterations of planned activities are highly undesirable (critical trips). The effectiveness of alternative prophylactic approaches, such as vaccination or the use of probiotics, still awaits confirmation. Treatment of mild diarrheal cases without intestinal symptoms may be limited to rehydration with or without antimotility agents. When antibiotic therapy is considered, non-absorbable antibiotics, such as rifaximin, may be considered a valid alternative to systemic antibiotics to treat uncomplicated cases, leaving fluoroquinolones and/or azithromycin for use in more severe cases or when invasive pathogens are suspected. Indeed, therapeutic use of doxycycline and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) is limited by widespread resistance of many enteropathogens. The addition of loperamide or other antimotility agents usually provides symptom relief and further shortens the duration of illness and may be therefore safely adopted in the healthy adult unless dysentery is present.

Loperamide, a novel antidiarrheal agent, was compared with diphenoxylate in a double blind crossover study of 23 patients with chronic diarrhea of various etiologies. Both agents were found to be capable of controlling or greatly reducing chronic diarrhea. Loperamide was superior to diphenoxylate in its abiltiy to decrease the frequency and improve the consistency of the stools, even at a 2.5-fold lower dose level.

Our data suggest that loperamide may be increasing in popularity as a drug of abuse and for treatment of opioid withdrawal symptoms. Given the potential for significant toxicity with loperamide exposure, including life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, clinicians should consider obtaining a screening electrocardiogram for patients presenting after acute or chronic high-dose ingestions of loperamide. In addition, increased control over the availability of loperamide may be warranted.

The efflux transporter P-glycoprotein, a member of the adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette superfamily, is a major determinant of the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the opioid loperamide, a well-recognized antidiarrheal agent. Animal studies indicate that P-glycoprotein limits morphine entry into the brain. In this study, the authors examined whether other opioids of importance to anesthesiologists such as fentanyl, sufentanil, and alfentanil, and also morphine-6-glucuronide and morphine-3-glucuronide, are P-glycoprotein substrates and whether, in turn, these opioids act also as P-glycoprotein inhibitors.

The applications of solid-phase microextraction (SPME) are continuously expanding, and one of the most interesting current aspects consists of applying SPME for fast analysis of biological fluids. The goal of this study is to develop biocompatible SPME coatings that can be utilized for in vivo and in vitro extractions, in direct contact with a biological matrix such as blood or tissue. The biocompatibility of the proposed new coatings buy imodium online is confirmed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and their performance is tested by developing an SPME/HPLC method for analysis of verapamil, loperamide, diazepam, nordiazepam, and warfarin in buffer solutions and in human plasma. The coatings prove to be biocompatible by not adsorbing proteins and are successfully applied for fast drug analysis and assay of drug plasma protein binding.

We report here the development and validation of an LC-MS method for quantitation of loperamide (LOP) and its N-demethyl metabolite (DMLOP) in human plasma. O-Acetyl-loperamide (A-LOP) was synthesized by us for use as an internal standard in the assay. After addition of the internal standard, the compounds of interest were extracted with methyl tert.-butylether and separated by HPLC on a C18 reversed-phase column using an acetonitrile-water gradient containing 20 mM ammonium acetate. The three compounds were well separated by HPLC and no interfering peaks were detected at the usual concentrations found in plasma. Analytes were quantitated using positive electrospray ionization in a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer operating in the MS-MS mode. Selected reaction monitoring was used to quantify LOP (m/z 477-266), DMLOP (m/z 463-->252) and A-LOP (m/z 519-->266) on ions formed by loss of the 4-(p-chlorophenyl)-4-hydroxy-piperidyl group upon low energy collision-induced dissociation. Calibration curves, which were linear over the range 1.04 to 41.7 pmol/ml (LOP) and 1.55 to 41.9 pmol/ml (DMLOP), were run contemporaneously with each batch of samples, along with low (4.2 pmol/ml), medium (16.7 pmol/ml) and high (33.4 pmol/ml) quality control samples. The lower limit of quantitation (LLQ) of LOP and DMLOP was about 0.25 pmol/ml in plasma. The extraction efficiency of LOP and DMLOP from human plasma was 72.3+/-1.50% (range: 70.7-73.7%) and 79.4+/-12.8% (64.9-88.8%), respectively. The intra- and inter-assay variability of LOP and DMLOP ranged from 2.1 to 14.5% for the low buy imodium online , medium and high quality control samples. The method has been used successfully to study loperamide pharmacokinetics in adult humans.

The increased fluorescence was nuclear in location, as judged by confocal microscopy. The antioxidant, N-acetyl-L-cysteine, three agents that inhibit mitochondrialfunction at identified sites, antimycin A, atractyloside and cyclosporin A, the L/N-channel inhibitor, loperamide and BAPTA, an intracellular Ca+ chelator preloaded into cells each reduced the extent or prevented the acute MK 886-induced rise in Ca2+, as determined by radiometric detection. Rhodamine-2, a more selective mitochondrial Ca2+ probe, provided no evidence for nuclear Ca2+ originating from that extra-nuclear site or from the endoplasmic reticulum. With 2', 7'-dichloro-dihydrofluorescein-labelled cells to detect reactive oxygen species, MK 886 increased the initial fluorescent signal from a number of intracellular, largely extra-nuclear sites, including mitochondria. Two chemicals that inhibit the function of Bcl-2, HA14-1 and 2-methyl-antimycin A3, reduced the Ca2+ response to MK 886, if pre-incubated with the Bcl-2-positive U937 cells at 37 degrees C for several hours. MK 886 was previously shown to induce reactive oxygen species and a fall in mitochondrial membrane potential in both Bcl-2-positive U937 buy imodium online and in Bcl-2-negative PC-3 prostate and panc-1 pancreatic cancer cells. The latter solid tumor cells undergo an atypical "type 2" PCD without an acute rise in nuclear Ca2+.

1. We set out to ascertain the role of tachykinins, neurokinin A and substance P, in castor oil-induced diarrhoea in rats as disclosed by the inhibitory effect of the non-peptide NK1- and NK2-receptor antagonists. SR 140333 and SR 48968, respectively. 2. SR 48968 (0.02 to 20 micrograms kg-1, s.c. or p.o.), and the opioid receptor agonist loperamide (1-10 mg kg-1, p.o.), dose-dependently prevented castor oil effects: % inhibition vs castor oil, diarrhoea 0 to 100, increase in faecal mass 7 to 90 and water content 16 to 90. SR 140333 (0.02 to 20 micrograms kg-1, s.c.) and the platelet activating factor antagonist SR 27417 (5 to 500 micrograms kg-1, p.o.) did not prevent the increase in faecal water content, but reduced faecal mass (35 to 66%) and diarrhoea (0 to 57%). 3. The R-enantiomers of tachykinin NK1 and NK2 receptor antagonists, SR 140603 and SR 48605 (both at 2 or 20 micrograms kg-1, s.c.) had no effect other than reducing faecal mass at the highest dose tested. 4. SR 48968 (20 micrograms kg-1, p.o.) but not loperamide (10 mg kg-1, p.o.) given 24 h before castor oil, still slightly but significantly reduced by 30% the increase of faecal mass output; both treatments significantly reduced (30 to 70%) the effect of castor oil on faecal water content, although the incidence of diarrhoea was only slightly less than in controls. 5. In castor oil-treated rats, naloxone (2 mg kg-1, s.c.) completely blocked the antidiarrhoeal action of loperamide (10 mg kg-1, p.o.) but not of SR 48968 (20 micrograms kg-1, p.o.): a similar result was obtained on faecal mass and water content. 6. Castor oil strongly increased the occurrence of manometrically recorded propulsive giant contractions (500 to 1000% over control values) of transverse and distal colon, this effect being significantly prevented (80 to 100%) by SR 48968 and loperamide and partially by SR 140333 (35% distal colon, 70% transverse colon). 7. In castor oil free rats, loperamide but not SR 48968 or buy imodium online SR 140333 significantly reduced by 50% the gastrointestinal transit of a charcoal test meal, as well as 24 h faecal mass output. Consistently, loperamide, unlike the tachykinin receptor antagonists, had a dramatic effect on manometric recordings of intestinal motility, reducing all kinds of colonic contractions. 8. Our findings suggest that castor oil diarrhoea in rats entails activation of NK1 and NK2 receptors by endogenous tachykinins, whose antagonists may have a potential as antidiarrhoeal agents free from the constipating action of opioids.

A small but significant subgroup of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) report a sudden onset of their IBS symptoms after a bout of gastroenteritis. Population-based surveys show that although a history of neurotic and psychologic disorders, pain-related diseases, and gastroenteritis are all risk factors for developing IBS, gastroenteritis is the most potent. More toxigenic organisms increase the risk 11-fold, as does an initial illness lasting more than 3 weeks. Hypochondriasis and adverse life events double the risk for postinfective (PI)-IBS and may account for the increased proportion of women who develop this syndrome. PI-IBS is associated with modest increases in mucosal T lymphocytes and serotonin-containing enteroendocrine cells. Animal models and some preliminary human data suggest this leads to excessive serotonin release from the mucosa. Both the histologic changes and symptoms in humans may last for many years with only 40% recovering over a 6-year follow-up. Celiac disease, microscopic colitis, lactose intolerance, early stage Crohn's disease, and bile salt buy imodium online malabsorption should be excluded, as should colon cancer in those over the age of 45 years or in those with a positive family history. Treatment with Loperamide, low-fiber diets, and bile salt- binding therapy may help some patients. Serotonin antagonists are logical treatments but have yet to be evaluated.

Plantar incision in rat generates spontaneous pain behaviour. The opioid drug, morphine used to treat postsurgical pain produces tolerance after long-term administration. Loperamide, a potent mu-opioid agonist, has documented analgesic action in various pain conditions. However, loperamide analgesia and associated tolerance following continuous spinal administration in postsurgical pain has not been reported. Chronic spinal infusion of drugs was achieved using intrathecal catheters connected to osmotic minipump. Coinciding with the onset of spinal infusion of loperamide or morphine, rats were subjected to plantar incision. Pain-related behaviour was assessed by Hargreaves apparatus (thermal hyperalgesia) and von Frey filaments (mechanical allodynia). Morphine and loperamide (0.5 buy imodium online , 1 and 2 microL/h) induced analgesia was observed until 7th day post-plantar incision in Sprague-Dawley rats. Morphine and loperamide produced dose-dependent analgesia. Loperamide, in the highest dose, produced analgesia till 7th day. However, the highest dose of morphine produced inhibition of thermal hyperalgesia till 5th day and mechanical allodynia only till 3rd day post-plantar incision. Morphine and loperamide produced analgesia in postsurgical pain, which may be mediated through different mechanisms. Longer duration of analgesia with loperamide could probably be due sustained blockade of calcium channels.

Han Wistar rats, pair housed in metabolism cages, received a single dose of vehicle, atropine, bethanechol, loperamide or metoclopramide. The Zoloft Overdose number, weight and appearance of pellets produced were assessed over 10 h and at 24 h post-dose. The endpoint was also added to a modified Irwin screen (testing atropine, theophylline, clonidine, amphetamine, baclofen or quinine) and a whole body plethysmography study (testing theophylline or bethanechol). Pellets were collected from home cages out to 4 h post-dose (Irwin) or following a 45 minutes plethysmography session. To assess correlation with stomach emptying and intestinal transit charcoal meal data was generated where published data was not available.

A simple and sensitive liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric method for quantification of loperamide in human plasma and saliva was developed and validated, and then successfully applied in pharmacokinetic clinical study to investigate and correlate bioavailability of Imodium(®) 2mg quartet tablet dose in both human plasma and saliva. Loperamide with labeled internal standard was extracted from its biological matrix by methanol as protein direct precipitant in single extraction step. Adequate chromatographic separation for analytes from plasma and saliva matrices was achieved using ACE C18 (50mm×2.1mm, 5μm) column, eluted by water/methanol/formic acid (30:70:0.1%, v/v), delivered isocratically at constant flow rate of 0.75ml/min. The method validation intends to investigate specificity, sensitivity, linearity, precision, accuracy, recovery, matrix effect and stability according to European guideline, and partial validation was applied on saliva, specificity, matrix effect, recovery, sensitivity, within and between day precision and accuracy. The calibration curve was linear through the range of 20-3000pg/ml in both plasma and saliva using a 50μl sample volume. The partial validation sections outcome in saliva was so close to those in plasma. The within- and between-day precisions were all below 8.7% for plasma and below 11.4% for saliva. Accuracies ranged from 94 to 105% for both matrices. In this study, 26 healthy volunteers participated in the clinical study, and 6 of gave their saliva samples in addition to plasma at the same time schedule. The pharmacokinetic parameters of Cmax Protonix Drip Dose , AUC0-t and AUC0-∞, Tmax and T1/2 in both plasma and saliva were calculated and correlated.

Among the nonantimicrobial agents that are available and useful for the prevention of traveler's diarrhea are bismuth subsalicylate-containing preparations, which can Sporanox Pediatric Dosing provide a rate of protection of up to 65% when taken 4 times daily. In one study, the probiotic Lactobacillus GG was found to provide 49% protection against traveler's diarrhea, but results with this agent and other probiotics have been highly variable and geographically inconsistent. Tannin albuminate plus ethacridine lactate provided 36% protection, but it is not widely available. Among the nonantimicrobial agents that are available and useful for the treatment of traveler's diarrhea are bismuth subsalicylate-containing preparations, which reduce the passage of loose stools by 16%-18%. The antisecretory and antimotility agent loperamide reduces the passage of loose stools by approximately 50% and has been especially useful, in combination with antimicrobial agents, in reducing the total duration of posttreatment diarrhea to a matter of hours.

P-glycoprotein (Pgp) is an ATP-dependent transporter involved in the efflux of a wide variety of lipophilic substrates, such as toxins and xenobiotics, out of cells. Pgp expression level is associated with the ineffective therapeutic treatment of cancer cells and microbial pathogens which gives it high clinical importance. Research on these transporters in helminths is limited. This work describes for the first time the Echinococcus granulosus Pgp (Eg-Pgp) expression, in a model cestode parasite and an important human pathogen. Based on calcein efflux assays in the presence of common Pgp modulators, we demonstrated the occurrence of active Eg-Pgp in protoscoleces and metacestodes. Eg-Pgp, which showed a molecular mass of ~130 kDa in western blots, is localized in the suckers and the tegument of control protoscoleces as well as in the subtegument or all parenchymatous cells of protoscoleces treated with Pgp-interfering agents. We also identified five genes encoding Pgp which are constitutively expressed in protoscoleces and metacestodes. We showed that the Eg-pgp1 and Eg-pgp2 transcripts were up-regulated in response to in vitro drug treatment with amiodarone and loperamide, in agreement with the increased polypeptide levels. Finally, in vitro treatment of protoscoleces and metacestodes with trifluoperazine and loperamide was lethal to the parasites. This indicates that both drugs as well as cyclosporine A negatively modulate the E. granulosus Pgp efflux activity, favoring the retention of these drugs in the larval tissue. These events could be associated with the reduction in protoscolex and metacestode viability.

Many drugs have been known to cause diarrhea, although their mechanism of action has not been well described. The gastrointestinal tract may become dysregulated when exposed to a drug that could disrupt mechanisms controlling mucosal permeability, transport, motility, and gut metabolism. This review examines the mechanism by which drugs induce diarrhea within the broad classification of watery, inflammatory, and fatty characteristics of the stool. Treatment may vary depending on this classification and usually includes withdrawal of the offending drug. However, in some cases, diarrhea may resolve with continued use or through nonspecific agents, such as Lomotil (Pfizer, New York, NY) or loperamide.

A loperamide simethicone combination formulation has recently been demonstrated to have significant clinical advantages compared to loperamide alone in the relief of diarrhoea and related symptoms. The product visualisation technique of gamma scintigraphy has been used to investigate the interaction of the formulation with the heterogenous environment of the human gut in a group of 12 healthy volunteers. The results suggest that changes in the intestinal kinetics of loperamide from the combination product, e.g. jejunal coating, could be contributing to the improved efficacy.

Several neuroleptics known to bind to calmodulin were tested for anti-diarrheal activity and were compared with the opiate anti-diarrheals loperamide and diphenoxylate. All inhibited the intestinal fluid secretion induced by 16,16-dimethyl prostaglandin E2 and castor oil-induced diarrhea in rats as a function of dose, the order of potency being loperamide approximately equal to diphenoxylate greater than chlorpromazine greater than promethazine greater than amitriptyline. The opiates loperamide and diphenoxylate were found to compete with [3H]trifluoperazine binding to calmodulin in the presence of calcium. These opiates were approximately 3 times more potent inhibitors of [3H]trifluoperazine binding than chlorpromazine. A positive correlation between calmodulin binding and anti-diarrheal activity was demonstrated.
