Infliximab increases the risk of infection in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), but there is controversy over the relationship between drug concentration and infections. We aimed to assess factors associated with infection in infliximab-treated patients, including pharmacokinetic features.

There are many studies presenting data of biologics and several ELISA kits commercially available for monitoring infliximab serum trough levels (s-IFXt) and anti-drug antibodies (ADAb). We propose to ...
Therapeutic drug monitoring of infliximab (IFX) using the established laboratory based Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) cannot produce results fast enough to allow IFX dose adjustments prior ...
Studies of serum vitamin D (Vit-D) levels in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) treated with anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha (anti-TNF-α) agents are scarce. The conjunction of Vit-D as w...
Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) by measuring infliximab (IFX) trough levels and antibodies to infliximab (ATI) is used to optimise treatment in inflammatory bowel disease. We aimed to explore the cl...
The measurement of serum concentrations of infliximab (IFX)has now become a routine part of optimal use of that drug. Trough values are used in two situations: (a) reactively where there i...
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...
TOPIT; Trough Level Optimized Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Therapy: A Multicenter Study Comparing Effectiveness of Trough Level Optimized Infliximab Maintenance Therapy With Standard Dosing Regimen of Pediatric Patients With Crohn's Disease
This clinical trail intends to evaluate interventions based on the Infliximab trough levels for an individualized therapy adaption for pediatric IBD-patients undergoing anti-TNF-alpha-ther...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether trough serum infliximab concentrations at the time of loss of clinical response will identify pediatric participants with inflammatory bowe...
Infliximab is a chimeric monoclonal antibody directed towards Tumor Necrosis Factor -alpha that is largely used in inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A relationship ...
A highly volatile inhalation anesthetic used mainly in short surgical procedures where light anesthesia with good analgesia is required. It is also used as an industrial solvent. Prolonged exposure to high concentrations of the vapor can lead to cardiotoxicity and neurological impairment.
A severe stage of acute renal insufficiency, characterized by the sudden decrease in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min, sometime to less than 1 to 2 ml per min. It is usually associated with OLIGURIA; EDEMA; and increase in BLOOD UREA NITROGEN and serum CREATININE concentrations.
An umbrella term used to describe a pattern of disabilities and abnormalities that result from fetal exposure to ETHANOL during pregnancy. It encompasses a phenotypic range that can vary greatly between individuals, but reliably includes one or more of the following: characteristic facial dysmorphism, FETAL GROWTH RETARDATION, central nervous system abnormalities, cognitive and/or behavioral dysfunction, BIRTH DEFECTS. The level of maternal alcohol consumption does not necessarily correlate directly with disease severity.
A chimeric monoclonal antibody to TNF ALPHA that is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.
The prevention of infection or disease following exposure to a pathogen. This is most frequently addressed by administering a vaccine or anti-viral medication following exposure to a virus.

An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
