A patch containing Erythromycin, an antibiotic similar to penicillin, could serve as a treatment for gastroparesis, a complication of diabetes that results in uneven gastric emptying. Gastroparesis hinders food and medication absorption.
Researchers, reporting their findings at the American Diabetes Association's scientific sessions in June, said Erythromycin was proven to help with gastric action, but had to be given intravenously. Tests showing that Erythromycin could be given via a skin patch means that, in the future, it could serve as a treatment for gastroparesis in that form.
