Delayed methotrexate clearance in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia concurrently receiving dasatinib.

We aimed to determine whether patients receiving dasatinib or imatinib concurrently with high-dose methotrexate (HDMTX) had slower methotrexate clearance than patients not receiving a tyrosine kinase ...

Plasma creatinine as predictor of delayed elimination of high-dose methotrexate in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia: A Danish population-based study.

Severely delayed elimination of methotrexate (MTX) is difficult to predict in patients treated with high-dose MTX (HD-MTX), but it may cause life-threatening toxicity. It has not been defined how an i...

Production of "biobetter" glucarpidase variants to improve drug detoxification and antibody directed enzyme prodrug therapy for cancer treatment.

Recombinant glucarpidase (formerly: Carboxypeptidase G2, CPG2) is used in Antibody Directed Enzyme Prodrug Therapy (ADEPT) for the treatment of cancer. In common with many protein therapeutics, glucar...

Renal dysfunction in a mouse model of GDM is prevented by metformin through MAPKs.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) incidence is increasing worldwide. In the present study, the effects of metformin on high fat diet (HFD)‑induced renal dysfunction were investigated in GDM mice. ...

Metformin attenuates cardiovascular and renal injury in uninephrectomized rats on DOCA-salt: Involvement of AMPK and miRNAs in cardioprotection.

Hypertension is associated with major cardiovascular (CV) and renal complications. The molecular intricacy by which hypertension leads to end organ damage is not known. To address this, we aimed to de...

Voraxaze for Delayed Methotrexate Clearance

Primary Objectives: 1. To evaluate the efficacy of Glucarpidase (Vorazaxe) in increasing the rate of methotrexate (MTX) clearance following high dose MTX treatment in patients with...

Methotrexate, Glucarpidase, and Leucovorin in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as methotrexate and leucovorin, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from ...

High Dose Methotrexate With Leucovorin Rescue With or Without Glucarpidase in Osteosarcoma

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate whether use of glucarpidase facilitates administration of the next cycle of chemotherapy as scheduled and improves safety and tolerability of HD...

Treatment Protocol of Voraxaze for Patients Experiencing or at Risk of Methotrexate Toxicity

This protocol evaluates adjunctive treatment of patients receiving high-dose methotrexate (HDMTX; > or = to 1 g/m2) who are experiencing or at risk of MTX toxicity. Patients are considere...

Prevention of Contrast Induced Nephropathy in Patients With Advanced Renal Dysfunction Undergoing Coronary Interventions

There is a pressing need to find effective strategies for the prevention of contrast induced nephropathy in patients with advanced renal dysfunction. The current study was designed to asse...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

A condition of HYPONATREMIA and renal salt loss attributed to overexpansion of BODY FLUIDS resulting from sustained release of ANTIDIURETIC HORMONES which stimulates renal resorption of water. It is characterized by normal KIDNEY function, high urine OSMOLALITY, low serum osmolality, and neurological dysfunction. Etiologies include ADH-producing neoplasms, injuries or diseases involving the HYPOTHALAMUS, the PITUITARY GLAND, and the LUNG. This syndrome can also be drug-induced.

Condition where a primary dysfunction of either heart or kidney results in failure of the other organ (e.g., HEART FAILURE with worsening RENAL INSUFFICIENCY).

An anabolic steroid that has been used in the treatment of male HYPOGONADISM, delayed puberty in males, and in the treatment of breast neoplasms in women.

A genus of mushrooms in the family Cortinariaceae. When ingested, species of Cortinarius cause delayed acute RENAL FAILURE.
