Published Studies Related to Erythromycin and Benzoyl Peroxide Gel (Erythromycin / Benzoyl Peroxide Topical)
A randomized, single-blind comparison of topical clindamycin + benzoyl peroxide (Duac) and erythromycin + zinc acetate (Zineryt) in the treatment of mild to moderate facial acne vulgaris. [2007.03]
CONCLUSIONS: CDP + BPO and ERY + Zn are effective treatments for acne but CDP + BPO has an earlier onset of action that should improve patient compliance.
A randomized, parallel, vehicle-controlled comparison of two erythromycin/benzoyl peroxide preparations for acne vulgaris. [2002.05]
BACKGROUND: Topical erythromycin/benzoyl peroxide (EBP), marketed for acne treatment, must be compounded by a pharmacist and requires subsequent refrigeration, warranting the development of alternate formulations. OBJECTIVE: This trial compared the efficacy and tolerability of a single-use EBP combination package (EBP Pak) with those of its matching vehicle control (VC Pak) and the original, reconstituted formulation packaged in a jar (EBP Jar). The matching VC for the original formulation (VC Jar) was used to achieve study blinding... CONCLUSIONS: Results of this 8-week trial demonstrate that the single-use combination package of EBP is well tolerated, effective, and comparable to the original formulation for the treatment of acne vulgaris in this selected patient population.
The efficacy and safety of a combination benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin topical gel compared with benzoyl peroxide alone and a benzoyl peroxide/erythromycin combination product. [2001.01]
BACKGROUND: Topical clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide have each demonstrated clinical efficacy in the treatment of acne vulgaris. When used in tandem, they promise greater efficacy than either individual agent through their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy and safety of combination benzoyl peroxide/ clindamycin compared with benzoyl peroxide or benzoyl peroxide/erythromycin in the treatment of acne... CONCLUSION: Benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin demonstrated improved efficacy and similar tolerability; to benzoyl peroxide used alone and was similar to benzoyl peroxide/ erythromycin, making this combination product an effective alternative antimicrobial therapy for acne.
The comparative efficacy of benzoyl peroxide 5%/erythromycin 3% gel and erythromycin 4%/zinc 1.2% solution in the treatment of acne vulgaris. [1997.02]
This randomized 10-week study compared the efficacy of benzoyl peroxide 5%/erythromycin 3% gel with erythromycin 4%/zinc 1.2% solution in 72 acne vulgaris patients. Physician global evaluations were significantly more improved (P < or = 0.05) in the benzoyl peroxide 5%/erythromycin 3% gel treatment group compared to erythromycin 4%/zinc 1.2% solution at week 2 and at each subsequent biweekly clinical visit...

Clinical Trials Related to Erythromycin and Benzoyl Peroxide Gel (Erythromycin / Benzoyl Peroxide Topical)
Methylnaltrexone vs Erythromycin for Facilitating Gastric Emptying Time in Critically Ill Patients [Recruiting]
42 patients admitted in ICU with intolerance to enteral feeding (GRV more than 250 ml) are
recruited. All patients enter a primary acetaminophen absorption test study as baseline.
Serum levels of acetaminophen will be measured by florescence polarization method at
15,30,45,60,90,120,180,240,480 minutes after enteral administration of 975 mg acetaminophen.
Then the patients will be randomized to methylnaltrexone or erythromycin group. Another
acetaminophen absorption test with the same schedule will be done after the last dose of
each drug. The area under the curve for acetaminophen blood level will be used to compare the
effect of two studied drugs on gastric emptying time.
Comparison of Two Macrolides, Azithromycin and Erythromycin, for Symptomatic Treatment of Gastroparesis [Recruiting]
Erythromycin is effectively used in the treatment of Gastroparesis (GP) patients. In
susceptible patients however, it has been associated with sudden cardiac death due to
prolongation of QT intervals and subsequent cardiac risks through its interaction some other
drugs. Azithromycin (AZI) is a macrolide antibiotic but does not have the mentioned druf
interactions , has fewer gastrointestinal side effects, and fewer risks of QT prolongation
and cardiac arrhythmias. Consequently, AZI avoids drawbacks of dosing with erythromycin and
may be preferred as a prokinetic agent in patients on other concomitant medications.
We hope to demonstrate the effectiveness of Azithromycin (AZI) as compared to Erythromycin
in the treatment of Gastroparesis (GP), and later, form the framework for larger
randomized-controlled parallel studies to investigate use of AZI for treatment of GP.
Our novel hypothesis is to determine whether AZI can be used to treat GP.
A Study of Erythromycin and Rivaroxaban in Study Participants With Normal and Reduced Kidney Function [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of
rivaroxaban when administered with erythromycin to study participants with mild or moderate
renal impairment compared to the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of rivaroxaban
administered to study participants with normal renal function.
Effect of Erythromycin Before Endoscopy of Patients With Subtotal Gastrectomy (STG), High Risk of Gastric Stasis [Recruiting]
Erythromycin has a prokinetic effect through Motilin receptor. It evokes migrating motor
complex with longer and stronger contraction.
In patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding, It has been shown that erythromycin could
clear the stomach of blood, so visual examination could be improved.
Frequent food stasis is encounted when we examine patients with subtotal gastrectomy. It is
postulated that erythromycin reduce food stasis and help to improve endoscopy in these
The Effect of Intravenous Erythromycin on Gastric Emptying in Non-fasted Patients Before Emergency Total Anesthesia [Recruiting]
In this study the investigators want to investigate the effect of a short intravenous
infusion of Erythromycine on gastric emptying on patients considered "full stomac" and
scheduled for Emergency operation. A gastroscopy will be done after intubation to controll
the effect of the perfusion.
