Anaerobic infections are common infections caused by anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria occur naturally and are the most common flora in the body. In their natural state, they don’t cause infection.   One of these was a knee joint infection with an anaerobic streptococci (also found in periodontal disease and dental abscesses) and the other was a Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron blood stream : Andrew Smith.

  Anaerobic Bacterial Infections. In the treatment of most serious anaerobic infections, intravenous metronidazole is usually administered initially. The usual adult oral dosage is mg/kg every six hours (approx. mg for a kg adult). A maximum of 4 g should not be exceeded during a hour period. Metronidazole is used in the treatment of anaerobic protozoal infections. Although often administered orally, it can also be delivered by means of an IV infusion. The loading dose is 15 mg per kilogram of body mass and is infused over one hour.

Metronidazole, marketed under the brand name Flagyl among others, is an antibiotic and antiprotozoal medication. It is used either alone or with other antibiotics to treat pelvic inflammatory disease, endocarditis, and bacterial vaginosis. It is effective for dracunculiasis, giardiasis, trichomoniasis, and amebiasis. It is an option for a first episode of mild-to-moderate Pregnancy category: AU: B2, US: B (No risk in . Flagyl (metronidazole) is an antibiotic prescribed to treat various parasitic and bacterial infections (Giardia, C. diff, H. pylori). Common side effects are headaches, nausea, and metallic taste in the mouth. Pregnancy and breastfeeding safety information are provided.

Metronidazole is regarded as the drug of choice for the treatment of those non-clostridial anaerobic infections that require antimicrobial therapy. It may be given orally, rectally, intravenously and topically, has virtually no side effects and its use is characterized by a strikingly rapid and sustained clinical and microbiological : Willis At.

Metronidazole is regarded as the drug of choice for the prevention of post-surgical anaerobic sepsis and for the treatment of those nonclostridial anaerobic infections that require antimicrobial by: 2. The results of treatment of 10 patients with anaerobic infections with metronidazole are presented.

Six patients were cured, three showed initial good response but circumstances required a change to another drug, and one patient did not respond. The unique spectrum of the drug, its pharmacology, and limitations are by: Metronidazole has a significant role in the treatment of anaerobic infections and in the prevention of these in the post-operative period, particularly with Bacteroides fragilis.

Metronidazole is well tolerated, and safe and therapeutically effective blood levels are. METRONIDAZOLE IN THE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF BACTEROIDES INFECTIONS IN GYNÆCOLOGICAL PATIENTS REPORT BY A STUDY GROUP Luton and Dunstable Hospital, Luton LU4 0DZ The frequency of postoperative non-clostridial anaerobic infection and vaginal carriage-rates of non-clostridial anaerobes were studied in gynæcological patients; 56 of these patients received prophylactic metronidazole and vaginal-carriage rate.

Antimicrobials for anaerobic infections •Aerobic: Grow in 18% O2 10% CO2 •Facultative anaerobes: Can grow in “room air” or under anaerobic conditions •Moderate anaerobes: Grow in % O2 •Strict (obligate) anaerobes: Only grow in infections, these different types of bacteria can coexist: e.g.

The principles of managing anaerobic infections include neutralizing bacterial toxins, preventing bacterial proliferation by changing the environment and hampering bacterial spread into healthy tissues.

Metronidazole is only effective against anaerobic gram-negative bacilli. Therefore, other agents are coadministered with metronidazole to provide coverage of both aerobic and anaerobic gram-positive bacteria.

Other medication classes have poor activity against anaerobic bacteria. Detailed Metronidazole dosage information for adults and children.

1 Initially, metronidazole was regarded as an antiprotozoal agent, proving to be an effective treatment for such infections as trichomoniasis, amebiasis, and giardiasis. Metronidazole is a nitroimidazole antibiotic, which is effective against anaerobic bacteria and protozoa (Simon und Stille, ).

Antibiotic spectrum of metronidazole: Metronidazole is sensitive against almost obligate anaerobic bacteria, and against protozoa such as Trichomonas, Giardia lamblia and Entamoeba. Metronidazole is used to treat a certain type of vaginal infection (bacterial vaginosis) in women who are not idazole is an antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria.

INTRODUCTION Metronidazole is one of the mainstay drugs for the treatment of anaerobic infections [ 1,2 ]. It is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of anaerobic and protozoal infections.

Metronidazole exerts its antimicrobial effects through the production of free radicals that are toxic to the microbe. The decision regarding management of anaerobic infection in a diabetic foot with specific therapy like Metronidazole is still a matter of debate.

4 To the author’s knowledge, there are no published studies mentioning the use of PCR technique in detection of anaerobic infection in DFU, and determining efficacy of Metronidazole in treatment. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines do not recommend double anaerobic coverage, and no evidence exists to show that double anaerobic coverage in PID results in better clinical or microbiologic cure rates.

The CDC’s treatment recommendations are summarized in table Haggerty. The topical forms (gels, creams, and lotions) of metronidazole are used for treating vaginal infections with protozoa such as Trichomonas vaginalis, amoeba, and Giardia.

Metronidazole topical also is effective against anaerobic bacterial infections. (Anaerobic bacteria are a type of bacteria that can grow without the presence of oxygen.).

In the treatment of most serious anaerobic infections, intravenous metronidazole is usually administered initially. The usual adult oral dosage is mg/kg every six hours (approx.
