Phosphodiesterase (PDE) terminates the signaling pathway of myometrial relaxation by degradating cAMP to the inactive 5'-AMP. The PDE4 family is one of the most predominant PDE families that display high affinity to cAMP. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of PDE4 gene polymorphisms on tocolytic effects and adverse drug events (ADEs) of ritodrine therapy in patients with preterm labor.
This study was aimed at determining if the myocardial performance index (MPI) is altered in well-controlled gestational diabetics and if so whether it is predictive of adverse perinatal outcome. In a prospective cross-sectional study, 54 consecutive women with well-controlled gestational diabetes controlled on insulin or metformin in the third trimester were recruited and matched with 54 women with normal pregnancies (control group). Using Doppler echocardiography, the MPI was calculated. Sonographic biophy...
The treatment of malignant gliomas has undergone a significant intensification during the past decade, and the interdisciplinary treatment team has learned that all treatment opportunities, including surgery and radiotherapy (RT), also have a central role in recurrent gliomas. Throughout the decades, re-irradiation (re-RT) has achieved a prominent place in the treatment of recurrent gliomas. A solid body of evidence supports the safety and efficacy of re-RT, especially when modern techniques are used, and j...
On October 16, 2018, FDA expanded the adalimumab dosing regimen to adolescent hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) patients 12 years and older, weighing at least 30 kg without new clinical data. This approval was mainly supported by the model-informed drug development approach. Population pharmacokinetic simulations suggest body weight-tiered dosing regimens in adolescent patients will achieve similar exposure to adult patients across all weight range. Adalimumab has a well-established, 16-year long-term safety ...
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is the most commonly performed laser refractive surgical technique worldwide for the treatment of myopia and myopic astigmatism. In recent years, small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) has emerged as a promising alternative to LASIK, requiring only a single femtosecond laser to create an intrastromal lenticule, which is then removed via a small incision. The technique obviates the need for a corneal flap. A number of published studies have compared the two ...
Severe asthma in children remains a significant issue. It places a heavy burden on affected individuals and society as a whole in terms of high morbidity, mortality, consumption of healthcare resources, and side effects from high-dose corticosteroid therapy. New, targeted biologic therapies for asthma have emerged as effective add-on options, complementing our expanding understanding of asthma phenotypes/endotypes and the underlying immunopathology of the disease spectrum. They include omalizumab, mepolizum...
Carbon 11-choline positron emission tomography/computed tomography (11C-choline PET/CT) and subsequent local therapy for oligometastatic prostate cancer have been reported to be effective, but their effectiveness in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) remains unclear. Here, we evaluated the findings of 11C-choline PET/CT in CRPC patients and the efficacy of local treatments in correspondence of the pathologic choline uptake.
Distal pancreatectomy with en bloc celiac axis resection (DP-CAR) is an extended surgical procedure for patients with locally advanced cancer of the pancreatic body and tail. Recently, the usability of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in pancreatic cancer was reported. The purpose of this study was to clarify the impact of NAC on surgical outcomes and prognosis in DP-CAR patients.
Report of phase I and II trials of melphalan, prednisolone, and thalidomide triplet combination therapy versus melphalan and prednisolone doublet combination therapy in Japanese patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma ineligible for autologous stem cell transplantation.
We conducted a phase I study to determine the recommended dose of thalidomide combined with melphalan plus prednisolone (MPT) and a phase II study evaluating the efficacy and safety of this MPT regimen in transplant-ineligible Japanese patients with untreated multiple myeloma. The recommended dose was determined to be 100 mg/day in the phase I study. In the phase II, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study, patients were allocated to either MPT (n = 52) or MP (n = 51), with 21 and 29 patient...
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is characterized by dominance of T helper type 2 (Th2) cytokines associated with infiltration of inflammatory cells. Th2 cytokines, especially IL-13, also contribute to fibrotic remodeling of the skin, as shown in murine AD models. Dupilumab is an interleukin (IL)-4 receptor-α antagonist, which blocks both IL-4 and IL-13 signaling, and is approved for the treatment of moderate to severe AD. Dupilumab is effective for treating AD symptoms such as eczema and pruritus; however, its effi...
Dry skin is one of the most important concerns of consumers worldwide. Despite huge efforts over several decades, the personal care industry still does not offer a perfect solution to satisfy the unmet needs of consumers for moisturising treatments in different ethnic groups. The paucity of data for the underlying cellular and biochemical problems in, and the effects of moisturisers on photodamaged facial skin may partly explain this. Mainly, single point measurements are used to understand the effects of p...
As selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are among the most commonly prescribed medications in autism, we aimed to determine whether targets for SSRIs are differentially affected in three cortical areas in children and adults with autism compared to neurotypical individuals. Utilizing a large cohort of postmortem brain tissue (n=14-19 per group), saturation ligand binding assays were conducted on sections from the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) and fusiform gyrus...
The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of intravenous JR-131, a darbepoetin alfa biosimilar, to darbepoetin alfa in hemodialysis patients with renal anemia. In this 24-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blinded, parallel-group phase 3 study, 334 hemodialysis patients with renal anemia who had been receiving darbepoetin alfa were randomized to either JR-131 or darbepoetin alfa group. The initial dose was set based on the darbepoetin alfa dose during the observation period. The primar...
Alcohol dependence is frequently comorbid with bipolar I disorder. Aripiprazole and its long-acting injection have demonstrated efficacy in the treatment and prevention of bipolar I disorder and its attendant symptoms, especially manic episodes. However, whether aripiprazole can alleviate alcohol dependence remains controversial. We report the case of a 47-year-old woman who had been diagnosed with bipolar I disorder and alcohol dependence, characterized by poor adherence to pharmacological treatment and ou...
Pulmonary Renal Syndrome (PRS), is characterized by diffuse alveolar haemorrhage (DAH) and glomerulonephritis (GN), occurring simultaneously. It has high mortality and dialysis dependence at one year, if not timely diagnosed and aggressively treated.
:Pulmonary embolism is a common emergency in the hospital setting. Main line of treatment is anticoagulant therapy. However, patients with right ventricular dysfunction are the subgroup with increased mortality and may have better outcome with initial treatment with thrombolytic therapy. The study was done to see the outcome of thrombolytic therapy in angiographically proved patients of pulmonary embolism.
Short-term studies have demonstrated potential therapeutic efficacy of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors (DPP4 inhibitors) in patients with poorly controlled T1DM. In this study we evaluated the effect of DPP4 inhibitor, linagliptin, on glycaemic control and variability, and incretinaxis in well controlled T1DM patients to mitigate the effect of glucotoxicity on incretin secreting cells.
