Fast and simple LC-MS/MS method for quantifying plasma voriconazole.
Summary of "Fast and simple LC-MS/MS method for quantifying plasma voriconazole."
An increasing number of publications point to the importance of voriconazole plasma monitoring. Our aim was to develop a fast and simple LC-MS/MS method for the quantification of plasma voriconazole.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Immunologic method used for detecting or quantifying immunoreactive substances. The substance is identified by first immobilizing it by blotting onto a membrane and then tagging it with labeled antibodies.
Argon Plasma Coagulation
A method of tissue ablation and bleeding control that uses argon plasma (ionized argon gas) to deliver a current of thermocoagulating energy to the area of tissue to be coagulated.
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
Colony Count, Microbial
Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.
An azo dye used in blood volume and cardiac output measurement by the dye dilution method. It is very soluble, strongly bound to plasma albumin, and disappears very slowly.
Case We report a case of ventricular bigeminy with concomitant administration of methadone, voriconazole and esomeprazole in a Caucasian woman aged 26 with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Plasma concen...
Voriconazole (VFEND(®)) is a triazole antifungal agent which inhibits the biosynthesis of ergosterol, a fungal cell membrane component. In Japan, voriconazole has become a commonly used antimicrobial...
PURPOSE: To assess the impacts of erythromycin on the pharmacokinetics of voriconazole and its association with CYP2C19 genotypes in healthy Chinese male subjects. METHODS: A single-center, open, cros...
Voriconazole is the drug of choice for invasive aspergillosis. We describe three patients who presented with severe hyponatremia after the initiation of voriconazole treatment. One patient expired whi...
Invasive fungal infection is a life-threatening condition; its occurrence has increased significantly over the past 20 years. We have developed a sensitive and efficient sweeping-micellar electrokinet...
This study is to assess the plasma concentration-time profile of voriconazole in adults receiving 7-day intravenous treatment and 6.5-day oral treatment. This study is also to assess the...
Multiple factors are associated with a large variability in voriconazole exposure following standard dose administration, such as non-linear saturable pharmacokinetics, drug-drug interacti...
Obese subjects may require a higher fixed oral maintenance dosing regimen of voriconazole compared to normal weight subjects to achieve comparable plasma exposures. The current study is d...
A fixed dosage regimen of voriconazole is routinely used for prophylaxis of aspergillosis in lung transplant patients at our institution. We hypothesize that use of a fixed dosage voricona...
To evaluate the drug-drug interaction between rifampicin and voriconazole according to CYP2C19 genotype quantitatively following a single oral administration of 200 mg voriconazole
