Anti-tuberculosis chemotherapy with a long duration and adequate dosing is the mainstay for treatment of osteoarticular tuberculosis (TB). However, it is difficult for systemic administration to reach adequate local drug concentrations and achieve effective treatment. Herein, a hydroxyapatite (HA) scaffold implant combined with a drug-releasing system was designed to achieve in situ and long-term anti-TB drug release and highly efficient therapeutic activity in vitro and in vivo. The clinical anti-TB drug...
The resistance profiles of patients receiving long-term ART in sub-Saharan Africa have been poorly described. This study obtained a sensitive assessment of the resistance patterns associated with long-term tenofovir-based ART in a programmatic setting where virological monitoring is yet to become part of routine care.
Despite modern anti-epileptic drug treatment, approximately 30% of epilepsies remain medically refractory and for these patients, epilepsy surgery may be a treatment option. There have been numerous studies demonstrating good outcome of epilepsy surgery in the short to median term however, there are a limited number of studies looking at the long-term outcomes. The aim of this study was to ascertain the long-term outcome of resective epilepsy surgery in a large neurosurgery hospital in the U.K.
Despite the availability of a broad range of treatments for epilepsy, a significant proportion of patients have ongoing seizures. This study aims to characterize the drug resistant population and to report long-term outcomes of patients undergoing different types of pharmacological and surgical treatment.
Parkinson's disease is a chronic, neurodegenerative disease. Its symptoms and course are heterogeneous. After several years of investigative drug studies, levodopa remains the most efficacious drug despite its long-term limitations. Consequently, research into new drug delivery modes is ongoing. Areas covered: This review summarizes past and current advances of levodopa therapy with a focus on long-term patient management. Current research aims to increase drug bioavailability and to deliver it to the brain...
In doping control analysis, the characterization of urinary steroid metabolites is of high interest for a targeted and long-term detection of prohibited anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS). In this work, the structure of a long-term metabolite of dehydrochloromethyltestosterone (DHCMT) was elucidated. Altogether, eight possible metabolites with a 17α-methyl-17β-hydroxymethyl - structure were synthesized and compared to a major DHCMT long-term metabolite detected in reference urine excretion samples. The co...
Although several randomized clinical trials and observational studies have evaluated the effectiveness, safety and drug survival of etanercept (ETN) in the treatment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA), long-term data regarding these aspects are currently scarce. For this reason, we sought to investigate the long-term survival and safety of ETN in PsA patients in 4 tertiary care Spanish hospitals over a 13-year observation period (from 2004 to 2017). The records of 85 PsA patients were reviewed. ETN showed an exce...
Current delivery of chemotherapy drugs to osteosarcoma is limited by the difficulties in overcoming the solid tumor microenvironment and the cardiotoxicity of doxorubicin (DOX). In previous work we found that phase separation could generate microspheres with high porosity. In this study, we applied these phase separated porous microspheres as carriers for long-term anti-cancer drug delivery. Novel poly(propylene fumarate)-co-poly(L-lactic acid) (PPF-co-PLLA) microspheres incorporating DOX were fabricated vi...
The durable polymer (DP) of a drug-eluting stent (DES) serves no function once drug elution is complete. To ascertain the benefits of bioabsorbable polymer (BP) over DP DESs requires a longer follow-up period, to overcome the time taken for polymer absorption. The primary aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the safety and efficacy of BP-DES with the DP-DES over mid (2 years) to long-term (3 to 5 years) follow-up.
Investigate a new polymer-based drug coating suitability for safe intracochlear delivery and ability to maintain long-term physiologically active levels of the corticosteroid fluticasone propionate.
The local dynamic stability method (maximum Lyapunov exponent) can assess gait stability. Two variants of the method exist: the short-term divergence exponent (DE), and the long-term DE. Only the short-term DE can predict fall risk. However, the significance of long-term DE has been unclear so far. Some studies have suggested that the complex, fractal-like structure of fluctuations among consecutive strides correlates with long-term DE. The aim, therefore, was to assess whether the long-term DE is a gait co...
Oxidative stress has been implicated in the pathogenesis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Edaravone, a free radical scavenger, was approved as a therapeutic drug for ALS in 2015 in Japan. A phase 3 clinical trial demonstrated a smaller decline in ALS functional scale scores compared with placebo. However, the long-term effects of edaravone on ALS patients remain unclear. This study aimed to retrospectively investigate the long-term effects of edaravone on the survival of ALS patients.
In-vitro studies have suggested that the antiarrhythmic drug digoxin might restrain the growth of cancer cells by inhibiting Na+/K+-ATPase. We evaluated the association between cancer mortality and digoxin, sotalol and general antiarrhythmic drug use in a retrospective cohort study. The study population consists of 78,615 men originally identified for the Finnish Randomized Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer. Information on antiarrhythmic drug purchases was collected from the national prescription datab...
In this chapter, a long-term drug delivery system for preclinical therapeutic research is introduced. By using a subcutaneously implanted ALZET osmotic pump, continuous zero-order delivery of drugs under investigation that need repeated oral or intravenous dosing is realizable. Compared to traditional delivery systems, implanted osmotic pumps present several advantages such as that no external connections or researcher intervention is required during infusion and that it is possible to save time by eliminat...
Evidence remains limited on why diabetes and hypertensive patients admitted to long-term drug therapy miss doses or discontinue medication taking. We examined this phenomenon from the perspective of diabetes and hypertension patients at a Ghanaian teaching hospital.
Knowledge of incidence and risk factors for long-term opioid prescribing is critical for surgical patients. In this retrospective cohort study, we linked information available at the time of surgery with prescription data to ascertain characteristics associated with prolonged opioid therapy.
A few studies have reported that low temperatures were associated with an increased risk of preterm birth. However, the effect of extreme weather events, such as cold spell, on preterm birth has not been studied in China.
Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is an adverse drug reaction characterized by the development of well-circumscribed, round, dusky erythematous macules and plaques on cutaneous or mucosal surfaces. The reaction occurs on the same mucosal or cutaneous site with subsequent exposures to the offending drug. Although FDE usually manifests as a single lesion, in rare instances, more than one lesion may arise and this is referred to as a generalized eruption. Herein, we present a 31year-old man with history of cystic fibr...
As facing the rapid growth of the elderly population, the demands for geriatric and long-term care are drastically increasing. Since one of the important strategies in preparation for long-term care system is to focus on the engagement of health care professionals, this paper applies a systematic approach to review the current geriatric and long term care courses in Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs. This review assessed the impact of Geriatric Nursing (GN) and/or Long Term Care (LTC) courses on...
Since the 1980s, adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) have become a powerful and potential source for stem cell-based therapy, regenerative medicine, and even drug delivery in cancer treatment. The development of off-the-shelf mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), including ASCs, has rapidly advanced in recent years with several clinical trials and approved products. In this technology, ASCs should be expanded long term in order to harvest higher cell number. In this study, senescence of ASCs after long-term expansio...
Titanium mesh is a popular material for cranioplasty. However, long-term outcomes of these reconstructions remain unknown. We aimed to compare long-term outcomes between patients undergoing both (1) skull reconstruction with titanium mesh and other commonly used cranioplasty materials and (2) scalp reconstructions with locoregional flaps and free tissue transfers.
The problem of predicting small molecule-polymer compatibility is relevant to all areas of materials science. Computational methods based on Hildebrand and Hansen solubility parameters, and the estimation of the Flory-Huggins parameter, χ, have proliferated across the literature. Focusing on the need to develop amorphous solid dispersions to improve the bioavailability of poorly soluble drug candidates, an innovative, high throughput 2D printing method has been employed to rapidly assess the compatibility ...
Supraparticles (SPs) composed of smaller colloidal particles provide a platform for the long-term, controlled release of therapeutics in biomedical applications. However, current synthesis methods used to achieve high drug loading and those involving biocompatible materials are often tedious and low throughput, thereby limiting the translation of SPs to diverse applications. Herein, we present a simple, effective, and automatable alginate-mediated electrospray technique for the assembly of robust spherical ...
