(MedPage Today) -- A 30 year old pregnant woman comes to your office inquiring about gradual hyperpigmentation that has appeared on her cheeks over the last few months. She has not been taking any medications and has not had any problems with her pregnancy. She has a history of acne and notes that she has had increased sun exposure lately.

Published Studies Related to Staticin (Erythromycin Topical)
A comparison between the effectiveness of erythromycin, single-dose clarithromycin and topical fusidic acid in the treatment of erythrasma. [2011.09.18]
Abstract Although erythrasma is a superficial skin infection, there is no consensus on the treatment model of erythrasma... Conclusion: Topical fusidic acid proved to be the most effective treatment; however, clarithromycin therapy may be an alternative regimen in the treatment of erythrasma because of its efficiency and better patient's compliance.
Topical nadifloxacin 1% cream vs. topical erythromycin 4% gel in the treatment of mild to moderate acne. [2010.12]
Topical antibiotics are the mainstay of therapy in mild to moderate inflammatory acne... We conclude that when topically applied, both nadifloxacin 1% cream and erythromycin 4% gel are equally effective and safe treatments for mild to moderate facial acne.
Oral amoxicillin vs. oral erythromycin in the treatment of pyoderma in Bamako, Mali: an open randomized trial. [2007.10]
BACKGROUND: Pyoderma (bacterial superficial skin infection) is an extremely common disorder in tropical developing countries. In these settings, Streptococcus pyogenes is considered to be the main etiological agent. Apart from epidemics of poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis where mass treatment with intramuscular benzathine-penicillin is recommended, no recommendation exists for the treatment of pyoderma in this setting. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of oral amoxicillin in the treatment of pyoderma in Mali, by comparison with oral erythromycin... CONCLUSIONS: Amoxicillin was as efficacious as erythromycin in the treatment of severe pyoderma in Mali. Owing to its efficacy, added to high availability and low cost, this compound should be considered a first-line treatment of this disorder in this country, and perhaps in other countries where this condition presents in a similar way.

Clinical Trials Related to Staticin (Erythromycin Topical)
The Effect of Concomitant Administration of Erythromycin and Diltiazem on CYP3A Activity in Healthy Volunteers [Completed]
We, the researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine, are doing this study to
better understand how the effects of certain medications are altered when taken
simultaneously, or in combination with each other. We will also look at how each volunteer's
genes (DNA) may affect the way these medications are metabolized.
We will test the hypothesis that the extent of drug-drug interaction caused by the
combination of erythromycin and diltiazem is not predictable from the extent of interaction
produced by each inhibitor alone. Specifically we will test the hypothesis that the
combination of erythromycin and diltiazem will cause a greater decrease in midazolam
intravenous and oral clearance than the sum of the decreases caused by each inhibitor alone.
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.
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.
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
