Hepatobilliary Toxicity of Ciprofloxacin (An Antibiotic) in Albino Rats

  title={Hepatobilliary Toxicity of Ciprofloxacin (An Antibiotic) in Albino Rats},
  author={Kingsley N. Agbafor and C. E. Offor and I. K. Obiudu},
Various antibiotics are known to elicit side effects which may include toxicity to different body organs. Hence, the present study investigated the effect of ciprofloxacin (a wide-spectrum antibiotic) on hepatobilliary system in albino rats. Twenty (20) adult male albino rats were divided into five groups of four rats each. Groups A, B, C and D were treated orally with 3.57, 7.14, 14.28 and 21.42mg/kg body weights of ciprofloxacin solution respectively for seven consecutive days, while group E…

Some Pharmacogical Adverse Effects of Moxifloxacin and Staphylococcal Aureus in Rats
Plasma urea, bilirubin, and creatinine were significantly elevated in the MXF-treated animals and activities of alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase, and alanine aminotsferase were significantly increased in the plasma of MXF -treated animals compared to control.

The administration of the combination GT with CP result in significant increase of nephrotoxicity in compare to administration of GT and CP alone respectively.
The Role of Silver Nanoparticles Against Amoxicillin/ Clavulanate-Induced Liver Damage in the Female Rats
Silver nanoparticles has beneficial effect against side effects induced by amoxicillin/clavulanate acid in rats, and significant increase in the liver aminotransferase levels, total protein andalbumin and significant decrease in the lipid profile.
Hepatotoxicity Activity of Broad Spectrum Antibiotics ( Amoxicillin and Ciprofloxacin ) after Prolonged Administration in Wistar Albino Rats
Hepatotoxicity Activity of Broad Spectrum Antibiotics (Amoxicillin and Ciprofloxacin) after Prolonged Administration in Wistar Albino Rats is studied.
Comparative analysis of body weight and serum biochemistry in broilers supplemented with some selected probiotics and antibiotic growth promoters
Significantly increased body weight is observed in probiotics and antibiotic growth promoters supplemented broilers, and Probiotics (like Yogurt and Promax ® ) seem to be better choice than antibiotics as feed supplements.
Performance and Health Status of Arbor Acres Broiler Chickens Raised with Routine Administration of Fluoroquinolones
Routine administration of fluoroquinolones had effect on some performance and health status indices of Abor Acres chickens when compared with the control.
This study aimed to examine the possible protective effect of bromelain (BROM) on renal and hepatic toxicity induced by ciprofloxacin (CPX) 100 mg/kg in broiler chicks. CPX is a broad-spectrum


Quinolones: a comprehensive review.
The new fluoroquinolones are rarely first-line agents and should be employed judiciously, and inappropriate use of agents from this important class of antibiotics will likely worsen current problems with antibiotic resistance.

Fluoroquinolones, are associated with rare, but clinically important, adverse events in special patient populations (including the elderly; those with hepatic, renal, or glycemic disorders; and those at risk for cardiovascular events); recognition of differences in the clinical efficacy and safety profiles of fluoroquolones inSpecial patient populations should lead to better antimicrobial agent selection.

In vitro activity of Bay 09867, a new quinoline derivative, compared with those of other antimicrobial agents
Bay 09867 was considerably more active against the gram-negative bacteria tested than were other agents tested, and Gentamicin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, P. aeruginosa, and methicillin-resistant S. aureus were highly susceptible to Bay 0 9867.

An overview of all published pharmacokinetic studies on drug interactions of the commonly prescribed antimicrobial drugs oxazolidinones, rifamycines, macrolides, fluoroquinolones, and beta-lactams, focusing on systematic research is provided.
Pregnancy Outcome Following Gestational Exposure to Fluoroquinolones: a Multicenter Prospective Controlled Study
It is concluded that the use of fluoroquinolones during embryogenesis is not associated with an increased risk of major malformations and the higher rate of therapeutic abortions observed in quinolone-exposed women compared to that for their controls may be secondary to the misperception of a major risk related to quinoline use during pregnancy.
