1.Formulation and advantages of furazolidone in liposomal drug delivery systems.
Alam MI1, Paget T1, Elkordy AA2. Eur J Pharm Sci. 2016 Mar 10;84:139-45. doi: 10.1016/j.ejps.2016.01.017. Epub 2016 Jan 18.
Furazolidone has proven to have antiprotozoal and antibacterial activity. A number of literature supported its use against Helicobacter pylori. This potential application opens new prospects of its use in clinical settings in triple therapy. In order to avoid side effects associated with this drug, liposomal mucoadhesive drug delivery that can work locally in stomach is considered as an appropriate approach. This study is a focus on formulations and in vitro characterization of liposomes containing furazolidone. Therefore, the effects of variable amounts of drug and cholesterol on encapsulation efficacy and in vitro drug release were evaluated for different liposomal formulations. Mucoadhesive behavior of chitosan coated liposomal at two different pHs was also evaluated and increase in pH from 1.3 to 4.5 increased mucoadhesion from 42% to 60% respectively. Increasing the amount of drug from 4mg to 5mg increased encapsulation activity however, increasing the drug any further decreased encapsulation activity.
2.Effects of Clarithromycin-Containing Quadruple Therapy on Helicobacter Pylori Eradication after Nitroimidazole-Containing Quadruple Therapy Failure.
Fakheri H1, Bakhshi Z2, Bari Z3, Alhooei S3. Middle East J Dig Dis. 2016 Jan;8(1):51-6. doi: 10.15171/mejdd.2016.07.
BACKGROUND Several large clinical trials and meta-analyses have shown about 20% failure to eradicate Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori), necessitating investigations for second-line treatments. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of clarithromycin-containing quadruple regimen after nitroimidazole-containing quadruple therapy failure. METHODS Thirty two patients who had failed 10-day H.pylori treatment with omeprazole, amoxicillin, bismuth subcitrate, and metronidazole (OABM) regimen and 31 patients who had failed 10-day treatment with omeprazole, amoxicillin, bismuth subcitrate, and furazolidone (OAMF) regimen entered the study. They all received omeprazole (20 mg), amoxicillin (1 gr), bismuth subcitrate (240 mg) and clarithromycin (500 mg) twice a day for 10 days. Eight weeks after treatment, H. pylori eradication was assessed by (14)C-urea breath test. RESULTS Totally 61 patients completed the study. According to intention to treat (ITT) analysis, eradication rates by second-line OABC regimen were 84.
3.Efficacy of a quadruple therapy regimen for Helicobacter pylori eradication after partial gastrectomy.

We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of bismuth-containing quadruple therapy plus postural change after dosing for Helicobacter pylori eradication in gastrectomized patients. We compared 76 gastric stump patients with H. pylori infection (GS group) with 50 non-gastrectomized H. pylori-positive patients who met the treatment indication (controls). The GS group was divided into GS group 1 and GS group 2. All groups were administered bismuth potassium citrate (220 mg), esomeprazole (20 mg), amoxicillin (1.0 g), and furazolidone (100 mg) twice daily for 14 days. GS group 1 maintained a left lateral horizontal position for 30 min after dosing. H. pylori was detected using rapid urease testing and histologic examination of gastric mucosa before and 3 months after therapy. Mucosal histologic manifestations were evaluated using visual analog scales of the updated Sydney System. GS group 1 had a higher prevalence of eradication than the GS group 2 (intention-to-treat [ITT]: P=0.
