Aminoglycoside antibiotics (mmol.l-1) gentamicin (0.74), streptomycin (1.02), netilmicin (1.24), amikacin (2.23), sisomicin (2.74), dactimicin (2.75), kanamycin (3.43), kanendomycin (3.45), tobramycin (3.53) and dibekacin (4.35) produce a complete neuromuscular blockade at the isolated phrenic nerve-hemidiaphragm preparation of the rat, which is only reversed by calcium chloride. On the other hand, verapamil (2.04 mmol.l-1), a calcium channel blocker, also produces a complete neuromuscular… Expand
Potentiation of Neuromuscular Blockade Effect of Rocuronium for 4 Hours Due to Perioperative Gentamicin, Clindamycin and Magnesium Sulfate
This article could be the first published case report where supplemental magnesium given in the perioperative period, with concomitant use of amino glycoside antibiotics has led to prolongation of neuromuscular blockade for 4 hours. Expand
Aminoglycoside-mediated relaxation of the ductus arteriosus in sepsis-associated PDA.
Aminoglycoside-induced vasorelaxation and inhibition of oxygen-induced DA constriction support the paradox that antibiotic treatment of sepsis may contribute to DA relaxation. Expand
Once-daily aminoglycoside therapy

It seems reasonable for infectious diseases consultants to cautiously initiate the educational process necessary to implement once-daily aminoglycoside therapy in their institutions. Expand
Aminoglycoside Revival: Review of a Historically Important Class of Antimicrobials Undergoing Rejuvenation.
Plazomicin is the first new aminoglycoside to be approved by the FDA in nearly 40 years, marking the successful start of a new campaign to rejuvenate the class. Expand
In Vitro Investigations of Antibiotic Influences on Nerve Cell Network Responses to Pharmacological Agents
There is a definite trend that shows sensitization of cells to verapamil in presence of gentamicin, and chronic or long term exposure to Gentamicin may cause loss of adhesion of the cell culture by affecting the glial growth. Expand
Pharmacological modulators of voltage-gated calcium channels and their therapeutical application.
Calcium channels play an important role in the transduction of action potential to the cytosol, an influx of Ca(2+) is essential for muscle contraction, neurotransmitter, and hormonal release, and blockers of neuronal CCs may be applied for pain treatment. Expand
Adverse Effects of Nondepolarising Neuromuscular Blocking Agents
SummaryNondepolarising muscle relaxants block neuromuscular transmission, acting as antagonists of the nicotinic receptors at the neuromuscular junction. Their undesired effects are frequently causedExpand
New developments in aminoglycoside therapy and ototoxicity
The pathology and pathophysiology of aminoglycoside-induced auditory and vestibular toxicity in humans and experimental animals is described and contemporary views of the mechanisms of cell death are explored. Expand
Clinical Guidelines for Diagnosis and Treatment of Botulism, 2021
These evidence-based guidelines provide health care providers with recommended best practices for diagnosing, monitoring, and treating single cases or outbreaks of foodborne, wound, and inhalational botulism and were developed after a multiyear process involving several systematic reviews and expert input.

Therapeutical application of voltage-gated calcium channel modulators
Calcium channels play an important role in the transduction of the signal from the cell periphery to the cytosol. Entering Ca2+ acts as a the second messenger, triggering muscle contraction,Expand
