SummaryThe utility of the fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics is rapidly expanding due to their favourable pharmacokinetic profile and the continuing development of new compounds. These agents are often used for indications not successfully treated with other orally available antimicrobials in the past, or for ‘step-down’ therapy in patients originally treated with intravenous agents. As the usage of these agents expands for serious systemic infections, knowledge of absorptive interactions… Expand
Revisiting Oral Fluoroquinolone and Multivalent Cation Drug-Drug Interactions: Are They Still Relevant?
TLDR
A focused review describes oral fluoroquinolone-multivalent cation drug-drug interactions and their magnitude and offers several clinical management strategies for these potentially clinically significant interactions. Expand
Comparison of Antibacterial Activity of Fluoroquinolones with Their Sucralfate-complexes against Clinically-isolated Bacteria
Oral fluoroquinolones are widely known to form chelate complexes with metal-containing drugs, resulting in inhibition of their intestinal absorption. However, for intestinal sterilization, theExpand
The role of quinolones in abdominal surgery.
TLDR
The quinolone antibiotics have been a major advance for the treatment of various types of infections and have generally good safety profiles, broad-spectrum activity, and favorable pharmacokinetics, but patients can develop serious central nervous system side effects (seizures) and phototoxicity. Expand
Drug interactions during therapy with three major groups of antimicrobial agents
This review focuses on drug–drug interactions with three major groups of antimicrobial agents: macrolides (including azalides and ketolides), quinolones, which are widely used for the treatment ofExpand
Sparfloxacin: a review.
TLDR
Sarfloxacin is active against the major respiratory pathogens and against the atypical pathogens in pneumonia that are being reported with increasing frequency and its safety profile is similar to that of the macrolides and other quinolone antimicrobial agents. Expand
Pharmcokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of the Fluoroquinolones
TLDR
Fluoroquinolones, especially the newer ones, have considerable and practical pharmacokinetic features, including excellent oral absorption, excellent tissue distribution, significant interstitial fluid levels, substantial phagocytic cellular levels, and long half-lives. Expand
Pharmacokinetic interactions related to the chemical structures of fluoroquinolones.
TLDR
Findings are potentially useful in designing fluoroquinolones less prone to drug interactions, which suggests that the 5-substituent may affect the formation and/or stability of unabsorbable chelate complex which is the probable cause of the interaction. Expand
Metal cation-fluoroquinolone complexes do not permeate through the intestinal absorption barrier.
TLDR
Results obtained on rat intestine in side-by-side diffusion chambers with saturated solutions of fluoroquinolones and metal cations in the donor compartment show that the ciprofloxacin-aluminum complex does not permeate the intestinal mucosal membrane. Expand
Pharmacokinetic Interaction of Ciprofloxacin with Diclofenac
TLDR
Major increases in ciprofloxacin area under the serum concentration-time curve (AUC) and elimination half-life, together with a significant decrease in total body clearance of ciprafloxACin, were observed with concurrent administration of diclofenac. Expand
Drug Interactions with Antiviral Drugs
TLDR
The combination of zidovudine and other antiretroviral drugs with different adverse event profiles, such as didanosine, zalcitabine and lamivudine, appears to be well tolerated and no relevant pharmacokinetic interactions have been detected. Expand

Interactions of fluoroquinolones with other drugs: mechanisms, variability, clinical significance, and management.
TLDR
The safe and effective use of fluoroquinolone antibiotics requires careful consideration of concomitant drug therapy, and the metabolism of theophylline and caffeine is inhibited by enoxacin and ciprofloxacIn, and reduction of the theophyLLine dosage is not routinely required. Expand

TLDR
Two important drug-drug interactions with new quinolone antibiotics revealed decreased fluoroquinolone absorption when co-administered with magnesium-aluminum antacids and inhibition of theophylline metabolism are investigated. Expand
Fluoroquinolone antimicrobial agents.
TLDR
The fluoroquinolones offer an efficacious, well-tolerated, and cost-effective alternative to parenteral therapies of selected infections and show promise for therapy of prostatitis, respiratory tract infections, osteomyelitis, and cutaneous infections. Expand

TLDR
Drug interactions with the quinolones are of two types: pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic; there is evidence that the elderly and patients with liver disease are particularly susceptible to kinetic interactions with ciprofloxacin, and there is no evidence to suggest that ofloxacIn is likely to impair hepatic drug elimination.

Pharmacokinetic Considerations in Quinolone Therapy
It is advisable to switch patients from parenteral to oral therapy as soon as practical. High volumes of distribution, coupled with relatively low protein binding, indicate that the quinolones areExpand

The safety profile, lack of significant drug interactions and convenience of administration make lomefloxacin a useful agent in specific clinical settings. Expand
The Quinolones: An Overview and Comparative Appraisal of Their Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
TLDR
This review compares the pharmacokinetics of the fluoroquinolones and nalidixic acid and examines their pharmacokinetic interactions with other drugs and produces marked differences in antimicrobial spectrum and activity, and in Pharmacokinetics. Expand
Quinolone-Cation Interactions: A Review
TLDR
The quinolone class of antibiotics is enjoying a recent resurgence in interest and use due to the development of improved compounds, and chelation and inactivation of these compounds by several cations may result in a possible reduction in bioavailability and effectiveness. Expand

TLDR
Parenteral quinolone therapy is indicated primarily for patients receiving intensive care or in the early postoperative phase, for perioperative prophylaxis, and for patients with disturbed absorption. Expand
Levofloxacin. A review of its antibacterial activity, pharmacokinetics and therapeutic efficacy.
TLDR
Clinical trials recruiting non-Japanese patients are in progress and these results will form a basis on which future recommendations for the broader use of levofloxacin can be made, as it has potential as a broad spectrum antibacterial drug in the treatment of a variety of infections. Expand
