Indications and restrictions of fluoroquinolone use in children


, : Indications and restrictions of fluoroquinolone use in children. British Journal of Hospital Medicine 56(8): 420-423

Fluoroquinolones (FQs) have a proven record in adults against a wide range of organisms, but their use in children has been restricted because of the potential for causing damage to joints. Accumulated evidence suggests that FQs are effective, well tolerated and do not cause arthropathy in children.

To identify neuroprotective changes in gene expression, we developed a neonatal mouse model of moderate to severe oxidative brain injury and hypothesized that recombinant erythropoietin (rEpo) would decrease the expression of proapoptotic and pro...

Interleukin-10 (IL-10) inhibits antigen-specific T cell responses when human monocytes are used as antigen-presenting cells. This is correlated with a down-regulation of MHC class II molecules on the surface of the monocyte. Here we show that IL-1...
