Disease relevance of Erythromycin A

  • TET, ERY, and AMP caused concentration-dependent changes in veins characterized primarily by loss of endothelium with associated inflammation and thrombus formation, consistent with the known clinical irritancy of these antibiotics [1].
  • Results of the in vitro test systems paralleled those of the rabbit ear model, with TET, ERY, and AMP exhibiting dose-dependent hemolysis and muscle cell toxicity, while CEP was comparatively nontoxic [1].
  • Fewer infants receiving erythromycin had 2 or more episodes of septicemia (n = 4) compared with placebo patients (n = 13, P = .03) [2].
