Targeted busulfan dosing helps to limit chemotherapy-related toxicity and optimize disease outcomes in hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HCT). The objective of this study was to evaluate busulfan exposure from a pharmacokinetic (PK)-guided dosing strategy utilizing a test dose. This retrospective evaluation included adult patients who underwent HCT at our institution with busulfan-based myeloablative (> 9 mg/kg) conditioning from January 2014 through October 2015. A weight-based test dose of 0.8 mg/kg was...
Genotype-guided warfarin dosing algorithm is designed to predict the initial and stable dose of warfarin. However, whether this strategy is superior to conventional dosing method has not been consistently proven. To determine the benefit of genotype-guided dosing vs conventional dosing of warfarin, we performed a meta-analysis.
The landscape of therapeutic anticoagulation has changed dramatically over the past decade, with availability of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), which inhibit factor Xa or thrombin. However, the optimal anticoagulant agent and dosing strategy for patients at both extremes of body weight has not been established for any anticoagulant, including DOACs, vitamin K antagonists (VKA) and the various heparin options. Areas covered: This paper reviews available evidence to assist clinicians in prescribing of an...
Daptomycin is a phosphatidylglycerol specific, calcium dependent membrane-active antibiotic that has been approved for the treatment of Gram-positive infections. A recent Bacillus subtilis study found that daptomycin clustered into fluid lipid domains of bacterial membranes and the membrane binding was correlated with dislocation of peripheral membrane proteins and depolarization of membrane potential. In particular, the study disproved the existence of daptomycin ion channels. Our purpose here is to study ...
Standard prophylaxis dosing based on bodyweight may result in over- or under-dosing due to interpatient variability. Adopting individual pharmacokinetic (PK) based tailoring may improve adherence to treatment guideline, and consequently clinical outcomes. Here we report clinical observations performed across the adoption of individual PK based tailoring in a single center in Japan.
The optimal pharmacodynamic parameter for prediction of efficacy of vancomycin is the area under the concentration-time curve (AUC), and current published data indicate that dosing based on vancomycin trough concentrations is an inaccurate substitute. In this study, our objective was to compare the achievement of therapeutic target attainment after switching from a trough-based to an AUC-based dosing strategy as a part of our institution's vancomycin-per-pharmacy protocol.
The DaptoDP (NCT 2012-005699-33) study aimed to evaluate the pharmacokinetic parameters of daptomycin (DAP) in peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis (PDRP) patients following intraperitoneal (IP) administration. The authors have already reported the findings on the 200-mg dosing and present here the follow-up results of the 300-mg dosing. The primary endpoint was a dialysate concentration of DAP above the effective concentration during 6 hours of dwell time i.e., 16 mg/L. Secondary endpoints were to avoi...
Gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) for MRI are generally administrated in direct relationship to body weight. Instead, we propose a model for GBCA dosing on the basis of blood volume. The new method was tested by exploring the associations between MRI T1 mapping indices and weight in the MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
To compare the clinical outcomes of aflibercept used with a fixed schedule with a pro-re-nata (PRN) retreatment regimen in patients affected by neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
Danvatirsen is a Generation 2.5 antisense oligonucleotide under clinical development. Population PK modelling was conducted using data from 3 available danvatirsen Phase I/II studies in oncology patients to investigate the impact of flat dosing on exposure compared to ideal body weight-based dosing. A total of 126 patients who received danvatirsen doses ranging from 1 to 4 mg/kg as monotherapy or in combination with durvalumab, most at 3 mg/kg (n = 70), was used in the danvatirsen population PK analysis...
Anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) use mitigates the risk of graft rejection and graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT), but ATG overexposure in the setting of lymphopenia negatively affects immune recovery. We hypothesized that standard empiric weight-based dosing of ATG, used to prevent graft rejection in ex vivo CD34-selected allo-HCT, may lead to serious adverse consequences on outcomes in certain patients. We evaluated 304 patients undergoing myeloabl...
There has been recent renewed interest in historical antibiotics because of the increased antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains. Latamoxef, a semi-synthetic oxacephem antibiotic developed in 1980s, has been brought back into use for treatment of infections in newborns recently, however, it is still used off-label in neonatal clinical practice due to the lack the evidence-based dosing regimen. Our study was performed to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of latamoxef in neonates and young infants and to provide ...
The experience with the use of monoclonal antibodies and Fc-fusion proteins (mAb/Fc) in the pediatric population is limited. The objective of this study is to review those factors impacting the clinical efficacy and product safety of mAb/Fc products in pediatric patients during drug development. We reviewed the list of biologic products in the US Food and Drug Administration's Purple Book as of March 2018 with a focus on mAb/Fc products that are indicated for use in both adults and pediatric patients. Of 68...
Dosing schedules for oral levodopa in advanced stages of Parkinson's disease (PD) require careful tailoring to fit the needs of each patient. This study proposes a dosing algorithm for oral administration of levodopa and evaluates its integration into a sensor-based dosing system (SBDS).
Avibactam is a non-β-lactam, β-lactamase inhibitor of the diazabicyclooctane class that covalently acylates its β-lactamase targets, encompassing extended spectrum of activities that cover serine β-lactamases but not metallo-β-lactamases. Ceftazidime and avibactam have complementary pharmacokinetic (PK) profiles. Both drugs have a half-life of approximately 2 h, making them suitable to be combined in a fixed-dose combination ratio of 4:1 (ceftazidime:avibactam). Renal clearance is the primary eliminati...
Daptomycin has been recognized as a therapeutic option for the treatment of bone and joint infection (BJI). Gene polymorphism of ABCB1, the gene encoding P-glycoprotein (P-gp), may influence daptomycin pharmacokinetics (PK).
This paper is concerned with the fixed-time synchronization control of inertial memristor-based neural networks with discrete delay. We design four different kinds of feedback controllers, under which the considered inertial memristor-based neural networks can realize fixed-time synchronization perfectly. Moreover, the obtained fixed-time synchronization criteria can be verified by algebraic operations. For any initial synchronization error, the settling time of fixed-time synchronization is bounded by a fi...
Globally, the prevalence of uncontrolled hypertension is high, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. There is a critical need for strategies to improve hypertension control. The early use of a fixed low-dose combination of three antihypertensive drugs (triple pill) has the potential to significantly improve hypertension control. The ple Pill vs. sual care anagement for atients with mild-to- moderate ypertension (TRIUMPH) randomised controlled trial (RCT) is designed to test the effects of t...
To assess, using model-based dynamic radiostereometric analysis (RSA), the biomechanical behaviour of a new design posterior-stabilized (PS) fixed-bearing (FB) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in vivo while patients performing two common motor tasks. The hypothesis was that model-based dynamic RSA is able to detect different behaviour of the implant under weight-bearing and non-weight-bearing conditions.
Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a persistent environmental contaminant that causes male reproductive toxicity. We investigated whether transient increases in TCE exposure modulated male reproductive toxicity by exposing rats via daily oral to repeated gavage exposures (1000 mg/kg/day) and through drinking water (0.6% TCE) for 14 weeks. The gavage route resulted in reversible reduction of epididymis weight, and reduced body weight that persisted for up to 12-weeks after cessation of exposure. Physiologically-ba...
Efforts to translate evidence-based weight loss interventions, such as the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), to low-income postpartum women have resulted in poor intervention attendance and high attrition. Strategies that improve engagement and retention in this population are needed to maximize the reach of evidence-based weight loss interventions.
Implementing a cohort study in longitudinal healthcare databases requires looking back over some covariate assessment period (CAP) preceding cohort entry to measure confounders. We used simulations to compare fixed-duration versus all-available CAPs for confounder adjustment in the presence of differences in available baseline time between exposure groups.
Evidence-based practices effectively reduce weight in people with serious mental illness (SMI), yet participation is limited. Positive relationships between self-efficacy (SE), readiness to change (RtC), and subsequent participation in weight loss interventions have been demonstrated in the general population. The role of SE and RtC in predicting participation in individuals with SMI is explored. A total of 82 participants recruited from a county mental health clinic and a Veterans Affairs mental health cli...
A new postcardiac surgery fluid resuscitation strategy was implemented in our Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) to implement evidence-based practice. We transitioned from a primarily albumin fluid-based strategy to a lactated Ringer's fluid-based strategy. We sought to determine whether a new postoperative fluid resuscitation strategy significantly altered the fluid composition for postcardiac surgery patients and what effect that would have on fluid resuscitation costs. Secondary outcomes included...
