Advice to patient: Allow at least 1 hour between taking this med- ication and a bacteriostatic antibiotic buy 50 mg penegra overnight delivery, eg order penegra 50 mg visa, tetracycline or ampheni- col. Clinically important drug interactions: Probenecid increases effects/toxicity of cephalexin. Editorial comments • Oral cephalosporins are used for Staphylococcus aureus and streptococcal infection, when penicillins are to be avoided. They should not be used for sinusitis, otitis media, or lower respiratory infections because of poor coverage of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Moraxella catarrhalis, and Hemophilus influenzae. They are not suitable coverage for bite wounds as they do not cover Pasteurella multocida. Mechanism of action: Binds to penicillin-binding proteins and disrupts or inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis. Susceptible organisms in vivo • Very effective against staphylococci and streptococci, poten- tially active against Streptococcus pneumoniae, active against enterococci. Adjustment of dosage • Kidney disease: Creatinine clearance less than 80 mL/min: usual adult dose; creatinine clearance 50–80 mL/min: ≤2 g q6h; creatinine clearance 25–50 mL/min: up to 1. American Academy of Pedi- atrics considers cephalosporins to be compatible with breast- feeding. Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to other cephalosporins or related antibiotics, eg, penicillin. Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to statins, active liver disease or unexplained persistent elevations of serum transaminase, preg- nancy, lactation. Editorial comments • It remains to be established whether cerivastatin has a signifi- cant effect on morbidity and mortality from coronary heart dis- ease. Until the safety and effectiveness of higher doses of cerivastatin have been determined, older drugs are preferred. Adjustment of dosage • Kidney disease: Creatinine clearance <31 mL/min: reduce dose to 5 mg/d. Advice to patient • Avoid driving or other activities requiring mental alertness or that are potentially dangerous until response to drug is known. Parameters to monitor: Efficacy of treatment: improvement of symptoms of rhinitis including sneezing, rhinorrhea, itchy/water eyes. Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to chlorambucil or other alkylating agents, patient who did not respond to previous course of therapy. Warnings/precautions • Use with caution in patients with the following conditions: bone marrow depression, history of seizures or head trauma, administration of potential epileptogenic drugs. Avoid full dosage within 4 weeks of radiation therapy because of high risk of bone marrow depression. Advice to patient • Use two forms of birth control including hormonal and barrier methods. Editorial comments • Use latex gloves and safety glasses when handling cytotoxic drugs. Adjustment of dosage • Kidney disease: Adjust dose according to blood levels (see Parameters to Monitor). Plasma drug levels must be monitored carefully in such patients (see Parameters to Monitor). Warnings/precautions • Use with caution in patients with the following conditions: liver or kidney disease, bone marrow depression, other drugs that suppress bone marrow function, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, acute intermittent porphyria. Clinically important drug interactions • Drugs that increase effects/toxicity of chloramphenicol: amino- glycosides, polymyxin, nondepolarizing muscle relaxants, suc- cinylcholine, cephalothin. It is essential to monitor blood levels in the newborn to avoid gray baby syndrome. Editorial comments • This drug is to be used only for severe infections that do not respond to other antibiotics or would be expected to respond best to chloramphenicol infections. Detailed knowledge of proper dosing and acute awareness of toxic effects of chlo- ramphenicol are strongly advised prior to clinical use. American Academy of Pediatrics expresses concern about breast- feeding while taking benzodiazepines. Warnings/precautions • Use with caution in patients with the following conditions: his- tory of drug abuse, severe renal and hepatic impairment, elderly, neonates and infants. Advice to patient • Avoid driving and other activities requiring mental alertness or that are potentially dangerous until response to drug is known. If suddenly withdrawn, there may be recurrence of the original anxiety or insomnia. A full-blown withdrawal symptom may occur consisting of vomiting, insomnia, tremor, sweating, muscle spasms.

Epithelia are classified according to three morphological characteristics: • the number of cell layers; • the cell shape; • the presence of surface specializations buy 100 mg penegra mastercard. A single layer of epithelial cells is termed simple epithelium discount 100 mg penegra with amex, whereas those composed of more than one layer are termed stratified epithelia. Stratified epithelia are found in areas which have to withstand large amounts of wear and tear, for example the inside of the mouth, or the skin. Epithelial cells may be, for example, squamous (flattened), columnar (tall), cuboidal (intermediate between squamous and columnar) and may contain surface specializations, such as cilia in the nasal epithelium and keratin in the skin. Detailed descriptions of the epithelia present in the various routes of drug delivery are given in the relevant chapters; a generalized summary is given here in Table 1. In man, goblet cells are scattered amongst cells of many simple epithelial linings, particularly of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. Mucus is mainly composed of long, entangled glycoprotein molecules known as mucins, which vary in length from 0. Each monomer consists of a protein backbone, approximately 800 amino acids long, rich in serine, proline and threonine. Oligosaccharide side chains, generally up to 18 residues in length, composed of N- acetylgalactosamine, N-acetylglucosamine, galactose, fucose and N-acetylneuraminic acid are attached to the protein monomers. Its most important property is its viscoelasticity, which enables it to act as a mechanical barrier, but also allows it to flow. Mucus acts as a physical barrier through which drug molecules must diffuse, prior to reaching the absorbing surface. The rate of diffusion through the mucus will be dependent upon such factors as the thickness of the mucus layer, mucus viscosity and any interactions which may occur between the drug and mucus. In the respiratory tract, mucus is also involved in the process of mucociliary clearance, which contributes to the epithelial barrier properties by entrapping potentially hazardous substances, such as dust and microorganisms, within a viscoelastic mucus blanket. The mucus is then propelled by the claw-like tips of “hair-like” cilia towards the throat (movement occurs in a downwards direction from the nasal epithelium, or 7 in an upwards direction from the lungs), where the mucus and any entrapped particulates are either swallowed or expectorated. Although this process is beneficial if inhaled particles are hazardous, drug particles may also be cleared by this mechanism. Hydrophobic membranes and cell junctions Membranes surround all living cells and cell organelles. In the fluid mosaic model of the plasma membrane, the surfaces of the membrane are composed of tightly packed lipoidal molecules (including phospholipids, sphingolipids and sterols), interspersed with proteins. The proteins were originally thought to float in a sea of lipid, resulting in a rather ill-defined mixed membrane. Proteins in specific conformations act as structural elements, transporters of nutrients and environmental monitors. The plasma membrane of epithelial cells, in common with other cell types, is selectively permeable, allowing the penetration of some substances but not others. The construction of the membrane from amphipathic lipid molecules forms a highly impermeable barrier to most polar and charged molecules, thereby preventing the loss of most water-soluble contents of the cell. This selective permeability presents a physical barrier to drug absorption, limiting absorption to specific routes and mechanisms, as described below (see Section 1. A further important feature of epithelia for drug delivery is that the epithelial cells are bound together by several types of plasma membrane specializations, including desmosomes, gap junctions and junctional complexes (Figure 1. Desmosomes (macula adherens) are the commonest type of cell junction and are found at many intercellular sites, including cardiac muscle, skin epithelium and the neck of the uterus. At the desmosome, the opposing plasma membranes are separated by a gap in which many fine, transverse filaments are present. Desmosomes provide strong points of cohesion between cells and act as anchorage points for the cytoskeleton of each cell. Gap junctions (nexus) are broad areas of closely opposed plasma membranes, but there is no fusion of the plasma membranes and a narrow gap, of about 2 to 3 nm wide, remains. The “gap” is crossed by cytoplasmic filaments, which allow intracellular cytoplasm to transfer between cells. This type of cell junction not only functions as an adherent zone, but also permits the passage of ions and other small molecules (sugars, amino acids, nucleotides and vitamins). Junctional complexes comprise intercellular membrane specializations which encircle the cells, preventing access of luminal contents to the intercellular spaces. They are found between the cells of simple cuboidal (for example in the lungs) and simple columnar (for example in the gastrointestinal tract) epithelia, and lie immediately below the luminal surface. They are made up of three components: (i) tight junctions (zonula occludentes), which consist of small areas where the outer lamina of opposing plasma membranes are fused with one another, via specific proteins which make direct contact across the intercellular space. A fine mat of filamentous material is present on the cytoplasmic aspect of these junctions. Biochemical barriers 9 In addition to a physical barrier, the epithelia also present a biochemical barrier to drug absorption, in the form of degradative enzymes. For example, the gastrointestinal tract contains a wide array of enzymes, which are present in a variety of locations: • the lumen; • adsorbed to the mucus layer; • the brush-border (microvilli) of the enterocytes; • intra-cellular (free within the cell cytoplasm and within cellular lysosomes); • the colon (colonic microflora).
