This agent produces curare-like effects on skeletal muscle order duphalac 100 ml with mastercard medicine and technology, and it can cause headache, nausea, visual disturbances, dizziness, and tinnitus (cinchonism). Antibacterial agents (1) Sulfonamides and sulfones are particularly important in the prophylaxis of chloroquine- resistant strains. Artemisinins and analogs (1) Artemisin (quinghaosu) is the active agent of an herbal medicine. It and its major syn- thetic analogs (artensuate, artemether), which are usually used in combination treat- ments (mefloquine), are rapidly metabolized to dihydroartemisinin that has good activity for the initial treatment of P. The major infecting organism is Entamoeba histolytica, which is ingested in cyst form, divides in the colon, and can invade the intestinal wall to cause severe dysentery. Chapter 11 Drugs Used in Treatment of Infectious Diseases 273 Ingestion of cysts Luminal amebicides Trophozoites • lodoquinol • Paromycin Intestinal wall multiplication Cysts Mixed amebicides • Metronidazole* Systemic amebicides+ • Chloroquine Expulsion from gastrointestinal tract Liver * Partially effective against luminal trophozoites; used with other luminal amebicides. The tissue amebicide metronidazole is active against organ- isms in the intestinal wall, liver, and other extraintestinal tissues. Metronidazole is only partially effective against organisms in the intestinal lumen. The luminal amebicides, iodo- quinol, paromomycin, and nitazoxanide act effectively in the intestinal lumen. Metronidazole (Flagyl) (1) Metronidazole is used for intestinal amebiasis as well as for amebic liver abscesses, generally in combination with iodoquinol or paromycin to eradicate luminal disease. Iodoquinol (Yodoxin) (1) Iodoquinol is active against both trophozoite and cyst forms in the intestinal lumen but not in the intestinal wall or extraintestinal tissues. Paromomycin (Humatin) is a broad-spectrum antibiotic related to neomycin and strepto- mycin that is useful as an alternative treatment of mild-to-moderate luminal infections or in asymptomatic carriers in place of iodoquinol. Stibogluconate sodium (Pentostam) (1) Stibogluconate sodium is a pentavalent antimonial. However, adverse effects are numerous and include severe and dangerous nephrotoxicity and hypoglycemia. It is also the drug of choice when antimonials are ineffective or are contraindicated. Nifurtimox is used to treat South American trypanosomiasis caused by Trypanosoma cruzi (Chagas disease). Suramin is useful for the treatment of end-stage African trypanosomiasis, or sleeping sick- ness, caused by T. Eflornithine (Ornidyl), an alternative for late-stage African trypanosomiasis, is an ornithine decarboxylase inhibitor that is effective in arousing comatose sleeping sickness patients (the ‘‘resurrection drug’’). Melarsoprol (mel B) (1) Melarsoprol is a trivalent arsenical that reacts with sulfhydryl groups in proteins. Toxoplasmosis is treated with a combination of pyrimethamine and sulfadiazine (or clindamycin). Mebendazole (Vermox) and albendazole (Albenza) (1) Mebendazole and albendazole are benzimidazole carbamates that bind with high affin- ity to parasite free B-tubulin to inhibit its polymerization and microtubule assembly. It is also rec- ommended for infections caused by the cestodes Echinococcus granulosus and E. Diethylcarbamazine (Hetrazan) (1) This agent decreases microfilariae muscular activity, causing their dislocation, and it also disrupts their membranes, making them susceptible to host defense mechanisms. Chapter 11 Drugs Used in Treatment of Infectious Diseases 275 (2) Diethylcarbamazine is the drug of choice to treat loiasis, despite host response-induced toxicity, and it is a first-line agent for the treatment of lymphatic filariasis and tropical pulmonary eosinophilia caused by Wucheria bancrofti and Brugia malayi. Ivermectin (Mectizan) (1) Ivermectin causes paralysis of the organism’s musculature by activation of inverte- – brate-specific glutamate-gated Cl channels. Praziquantel (Biltricide) (1) Praziquantel causes muscle contraction, with paralysis of the worm; it also causes teg- mental damage, with host-defense activation and destruction of the worm. It is recommended for Fasciola hepatica (sheep liver fluke infection) and as an alternative to praziquantel for acute paragonimiasis. Acyclovir is a purine analogue that needs to be converted to nucleoside triphosphate for activity. Valacyclovir (Valtrex), a prodrug, is converted rapidly and completely to acyclovir, increas- ing its oral bioavailability to 50%. Chronic oral administration provides suppression and shortening of duration of symptoms in recurrent genital herpes. It is also used in herpes zos- ter in immunocompromised patients; ophthalmic application is used to treat herpes sim- plex dendritic keratitis; and topical application is used for mucocutaneous herpetic infections in immunosuppressed patients.
