Published Studies Related to Gentak (Gentamicin Ophthalmic)
Effects of intracameral triamcinolone and gentamicin injections following cataract surgery. [2011.07]
CONCLUSION: Intracameral injections of triamcinolone acetonide and gentamicin appear to be a promising treatment option for the control of post-operative inflammation following cataract surgery.
Use of povidone-iodine drop instead of sub-conjunctival injection of dexamethasone and gentamicin combination at the end of phacoemulsification cataract surgery. [2010.04]
To evaluate the use of 5% povidone-iodine drop with subconjunctival injection of dexamethasone and gentamicin combination at the completion of phacoemulsification cataract surgery. This prospective randomized study was conducted at the department of Ophthalmology, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), Dhaka, Bangladesh during the period of July, 2005 to June 2006...
Side effects of postoperative administration of methylprednisolone and gentamicin into the posterior sub-Tenon's space. [2007.05]
PURPOSE: To assess the incidence of postoperative emetic side effects after the administration of methylprednisolone and gentamicin into the posterior sub-Tenon's space at the end of routine cataract surgery. SETTING: St. Luke's Hospital, Gwardamangia, Malta... CONCLUSIONS: The administration of methylprednisolone and gentamicin in the posterior sub-Tenon's space was related to a high incidence of side effects including nausea, vomiting, and headache. All adverse effects were self-limiting.
Intravitreal gentamicin-induced macular infarction: SD-OCT features. [2011.08.04]
A 75-year-old woman developed acute-onset endophthalmitis following phacoemulsification in the left eye. She was treated with intravitreal injections of vancomycin, ceftazidime, and gentamicin... This case demonstrates SD-OCT features in macular infarction following intravitreal gentamicin, specifically changes involving the inner retina with a relatively intact outer retina.
Severe ocular reactions after neonatal ocular prophylaxis with gentamicin ophthalmic ointment. [2011.02]
In this study, we report 4 infants who developed severe ocular reactions after neonatal ocular prophylaxis with gentamicin ophthalmic ointment during a period of erythromycin ophthalmic ointment shortage.
Clinical Trials Related to Gentak (Gentamicin Ophthalmic)
Local Gentamicin Application to Reduce Postoperative Infection Rate [Recruiting]
The majority of elderly patients with a displaced fracture of the proximal femur are now
treated with a hemiarthroplasty. Prosthetic joint infection is a devastating complication,
and the infection rate is high in this group of elderly patients. Local application of
gentamicin produces high antibiotic concentrations in the wound. The aim of this study is to
determine whether locally administered collagen-gentamicin in the joint perioperatively in
addition to routine IV prophylaxis with beta-lactam antibiotics can reduce the early
postoperative infection rate (< 4 weeks postoperative)after hemiarthroplasty in proximal
Safety, Efficacy, and PK of Topical Paromomycin/Gentamicin Cream for Treatment of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis [Recruiting]
The objectives of the study are to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), and efficacy
of open label treatment with WR 279,396 (Topical Paromomycin/Gentamicin Cream)in subjects
with cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL).
Pharmacokinetics, Safety, and Efficacy Trial of WR 279,396 (Paromomycin + Gentamicin Topical Cream) and Paromomycin Topical Cream for the Treatment of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Panama [Recruiting]
The objectives of the study are to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety, and efficacy
of WR 279,396 (Paromomycin + Gentamicin Topical Cream) and Paromomycin Topical Cream in
subjects with cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL).
Safety and Efficacy of Quadriderme® in the Treatment of Impetiginous Eczema (Study P05134AM4) [Recruiting]
This is a parallel-group, randomized, active-controlled, double-blind, Phase 4 trial
comparing three creams in the treatment of impetiginous eczema:
- Arm A: QUADRIDERME® cream (betamethasone diproprionate, clotrimazole and gentamicin
- Arm B: Combination of betamethasone diproprionate cream and gentamicin sulfate cream
- Arm C: Betamethasone diproprionate cream
At 7 sites, in Portugal, a total of 207 subjects will be randomized using a 1: 1:1
randomization ratio to receive one of the three possible treatments for a maximum period of
28 days or until 5 days after total remission of the signs and symptoms, but never more than
28 days. Assessments will be made of level of improvement of the target area in each
treatment group, number of days for total remission, and safety profile.
Comparison of Ampicillin / Sulbactam vs. Ampicillin / Gentamicin for Treatment of Intrapartum Chorioamnionitis: a Randomized Controlled Trial [Recruiting]
Chorioamnionitis is an infection of the placenta and amniotic membranes (bag of waters)
surrounding the baby inside of a pregnant woman prior to delivery. This infection is
somewhat common and is routinely treated with antibiotics given to the mother both before
and after the baby is born. Currently it is not known what is the best choice of antibiotics
to treat this type of infection, but commonly used treatments include Unasyn
(ampicillin/sulbactam) or ampicillin/gentamicin. We plan to compare these two different
antibiotic regimens to see if one is better than the other at treating and preventing bad
outcomes from chorioamnionitis in women and babies.
