Approximately one-third of patients have durable responses after finite (48-week) treatment with peginterferon alfa-2a. The ability to identify patients likely to respond would be particularly useful in resource-limited settings.
It has yet to be firmly established whether host IFNL3 (IL28B) genotype influences interferon responsiveness in patients with chronic hepatitis B. We investigated associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the IFNL3 region and response to peginterferon alfa-2a in 701 patients enrolled in three large, randomized, international studies.
For patients with anemia undergoing hemodialysis, erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are typically dosed via precise algorithms. Using one such algorithm, we assessed the maintenance of hemoglobin levels in patients switched from epoetin alfa reference product (Epogen®) to epoetin alfa-epbx (RetacritTM; a biosimilar to US-licensed Epogen®/Procrit®).
The subcutaneous peginterferon-b-1a is recently introduced in the therapy of relapsing-remitting multiplex sclerosis (RRMS) patients. Pegylation of IFN b-1a improved pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties, resulting in, increased biologic activity and a longer half-life. The efficacy of peginterferon-b-1a was proved by the ADVANCE study - a 2-year Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind study with a 1-year placebocontrolled period evaluating the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous peginterfer...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between interleukin-21 (IL-21) and interleukin-21 receptor (IL-21R) polymorphisms and the response to peginterferon alfa (PEG-IFN α) therapy in HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients.A total of 143 HBeAg-positive CHB patients treated for 48 weeks with PEG-IFN α and followed up for 24 weeks post-treatment were retrospectively evaluated. Genotypes analysis was performed for IL-21 polymorphisms rs907715, rs2221903, and IL-21R polymorphisms rs3...
Interferon beta therapies have been effective in the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis for over 2 decades. These therapies have varying routes and schedules of administration but broadly similar clinical and radiologic efficacy. The most commonly reported adverse effects are flu-like symptoms and injection site reactions. The most recent addition to the class is peginterferon beta-1a, which is administered subcutaneously every 2 weeks. Although clinically stable patients with multiple scler...
Subcutaneous (SC) peginterferon beta-1a and SC interferon beta-1a (IFN beta-1a) have demonstrated efficacy in treating relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) but have never been compared in direct head-to-head clinical trials, the gold-standard comparison. A well-balanced matching-adjusted comparison of weighted individual patient data on SC peginterferon beta-1a, and aggregate data from published phase 3 clinical trials of SC IFN beta-1a, was conducted to provide additional information on the compar...
The article Andexanet Alfa: First Global Approval, written by Young-A Heo, was originally published Online First without open access.
To evaluate the effect of peginterferon α-2b on guinea pigs' hearing and its cochlea, and to determine whether these effects are permanent or reversible. This study is an experimental animal study done on the organs of Corti of 30 guinea pigs after a peginterferon α-2b injection course. The cochleae of guinea pigs were extracted and examined by scanning electron microscopy for the right side and immunohistochemistry for the left side. All guinea pigs were subjected to pinna reflex, otological examination,...
: The development of alloantibodies against the replacement of Factor VIII (FVIII) is the major complication in haemophilia A treatment. The gold standard to eradicate inhibitors is the immune tolerance induction (ITI), but in some cases it fails requiring another immune tolerance, defined ITI rescue (ITI-R), using a different concentrate, even though it is still debated. We report a successful case of a poor risk (titre of inhibitor at start of ITI > 10 BU/ml, peak titre on ITI > 200 BU/ml, >2 ...
Increasing use of factor Xa (FXa) inhibitors necessitates effective reversal agents to manage bleeding. Andexanet alfa, a novel modified recombinant human FXa, rapidly reverses the anticoagulation effects of direct and indirect FXa inhibitors.
In the past few years, a growing body of clinical evidence has highlighted the risk of vitamin D deficiency in patients with chronic hepatitis C and that vitamin D levels are associated with the course of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, adverse effects, and treatment response to peginterferon/ribavirin. Recently, studies have found that vitamin D status is related to drug resistance and increased risk of infection in patients with liver cirrhosis. Vitamin D-related gene polymorphisms have been found to e...
Genetic variants of inosine triphosphatase (ITPA) that confer reduced ITPase activity are associated with protection against ribavirin(RBV)-induced hemolytic anemia in peginterferon(IFN)/RBV-based treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV). Patients with reduced ITPase activity showed improved treatment efficacy when treated with IFN/RBV. In addition, a genetic polymorphism near the IL28B gene is associated with an improved response to IFN/RBV treatment. RBV has been an important component of IFN-containing regim...
Acute liver failure (ALF) caused by hepatitis A is a rare but fatal disease. Here, we developed a model to predict outcome in patients with ALF caused by hepatitis A. The derivation set consisted of 294 patients diagnosed with hepatitis A-related ALF from Korea, and a validation set of 56 patients from Japan, India, and United Kingdom. Using multivariate proportional hazard model, a risk-prediction model (ALFA score) comprised of age, international normalized ratio, bilirubin, ammonia, creatinine, and hemog...
Pegylated interferon alfa-2a (PEG-IFN alfa-2a), which was developed to overcome the disadvantages of conventional formulations, is widely prescribed for hepatitis B or C virus infection. It is characterized by pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) properties much different from those of conventional forms. The present study developed a population PK-PD model of subcutaneous PEG-IFN α-2a in a Korean population. For PK, IFN alfa-2a concentrations were described by a one compartment model with first o...
Treatment with intracerebroventricular (ICV)-delivered cerliponase alfa enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) in a Phase 1/2 study of 24 subjects with CLN2 disease resulted in a meaningful preservation of motor and language (ML) function and was well tolerated. Treatment was associated with anti-drug antibody (ADA) production in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 6/24 (25%) and in the serum of 19/24 (79%) of clinical trial subjects, respectively, over a mean exposure of 96.4 weeks (range 0.1-129 weeks). Neutra...
Anemia is one of the most prevalent complications in patients with chronic kidney disease, which is believed to be caused by the insufficient synthesis of erythropoietin by the kidney. This phase III study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of CinnaPoietin® (epoetin beta, CinnaGen) with Eprex® (epoetin alfa, Janssen Cilag) in the treatment of anemia in ESRD hemodialysis patients.
Does corifollitropin alfa associated with hp-HMG protocol from the beginning of ovarian stimulation perform better than high dose rFSH alone for ovarian stimulation with GnRH antagonist in poor responders? This retrospective, monocentric, case-control pilot study was conducted in 65 poor responders (Bologna criteria) undergoing 2 consecutive IVF cycles. All patients underwent a first ovarian stimulation cycle with high dose rFSH (≥300 IU/day) alone in antagonist protocol, unfortunately leading to poor o...
Patient selection is critically important in improving the outcomes of liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma. The aim of the current study was to identify biochemical measures that could affect patient prognosis after liver transplantation.
The current treatment of Fabry disease by Enzyme Replacement Therapy with commercially available recombinant human α-Galactosidase A shows a continuous deterioration of the disease patients. Human recombinant α-Galactosidase A is a homodimer with noncovalently bound subunits and is expressed in the ProCellEx® plant cell-based protein expression platform to produce pegunigalsidase alfa. The effect of covalent bonding between two α-Galactosidase A subunits by PEG-based crosslinkers of various lengths was ...
Efficacy and safety of Velmanase alfa in the treatment of patients with alpha-mannosidosis: results from the core and extension phase analysis of a phase III multicentre, double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trial.
This phase III, double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trial (and extension phase) was designed to assess the efficacy and safety of velmanase alfa (VA) in alpha-mannosidosis (AM) patients.
Dornase alfa (DNase) is one of the commonest cystic fibrosis (CF) treatments and is often used for many years. However, studies have not evaluated the effectiveness of its long-term use. We aimed to use UK CF Registry data to investigate the effects of one-, two-, three-, four- and five-years of DNase use on lung function to see if the benefits of short-term treatment use are sustained long term.
Lysosomal acid lipase deficiency (LAL-D) results in progressive microvesicular hepatosteatosis, fibrosis, cirrhosis, dyslipidemia, and vascular disease. Interventions available prior to enzyme replacement therapy development, including lipid lowering medications, splenectomy, hematopoietic stem cell and liver transplantation were unsuccessful at preventing multi-systemic disease progression, and were associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We report two sisters, diagnosed in infancy, who succum...
