    In this case report, the authors describe a serum sickness-like reaction (SSLR) in a pediatric patient. Through evaluation, the probable cause of the SSLR is metronidazole. Metronidazole has not previously been reported to cause SSLR in the pediatric population and only once reported in the adult population.

  2. Relationship between xerostomia and psychotropic drugs in patients with schizophrenia: evaluation using an oral moisture meter

    Xerostomia, a sensation of dry mouth, is a common side effect of many medications used to treat schizophrenia. Our multivariate analysis revealed a negative correlation between the number of antipsychotics used, particularly anxiolytics, and the degree of oral moisture in patients with schizophrenia.

  3. The effect of the intensity of lipid-lowering medications on the LDL cholesterol treatment goals of Asian patients with dyslipidaemia in primary care

    N. C. Tan, C. C. Goh, S. C. P. Goh, Y. L. E. Koh and K. H. Koh

    The results showed 27.6% of patients with dyslipidemia did not achieve LDL-C treatment goals, despite on lipid-lowering therapy. A total of 89.4%, 77.4% and 70% of those in the low, medium and high risk groups achieved treatment goals respectively. It also showed that 85.5%, 69.5% and 50% of the patients on low, medium and high statin intensity groups were treated to LDL Cholesterol goals.

  5. Retrospective analysis of vancomycin treatment outcomes in Chinese paediatric patients with suspected Gram-positive infection

    Our findings suggest that the vancomycin trough concentration is not associated with treatment outcome. Intensive care unit (ICU) admission is an independent predictor of treatment failure.
