Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics; Theken KN, Lee CR et. al.

Mar 20th, 2020 - Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most commonly used analgesics due to their lack of addictive potential. However, NSAIDs have the potential to cause serious gastrointestinal, renal, and cardiovascular adverse events. CYP2C9 polymorphisms influence metabolism and clearance of several drugs in this class, thereby affecting drug exposure and potentially safety. We summar...

American Journal of Hematology; Bianchi P, Fermo E et. al.

Oct 26th, 2018 - Pyruvate kinase deficiency (PKD) is the most common enzyme defect of glycolysis and an important cause of hereditary, nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia. The disease has a worldwide geographical distribution but there are no verified data regarding its frequency. Difficulties in the diagnostic workflow and interpretation of PK enzyme assay likely play a role. By the creation of a global PKD Intern...

Journal of Clinical Pathology; Wong NACS, Amary F et. al.

Feb 14th, 2018 - The use of biologics targeted to the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) protein is the latest addition to the armamentarium used to fight advanced gastric or gastro-oesophageal junction adenocarcinoma. The decision to treat with the biologic trastuzumab is completely dependent on HER2 testing of tumour tissue. In 2017, the College of American Pathologists, American Society for Clin...

Transplantation De Simone P, Fagiuoli S et. al.

Aug 9th, 2016 - Immunosuppression after liver transplantation (LT) is presently based on use of calcineurin inhibitors (CNI), although they are associated with an increased incidence of renal dysfunction, cardiovascular complications, and de novo and recurrent malignancies. Over the past decade, mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors have received considerable attention as immunosuppressants because they are...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4785051
Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics; Gammal RS, Court MH et. al.

Sep 30th, 2015 - The antiretroviral protease inhibitor atazanavir inhibits hepatic uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 1A1, thereby preventing the glucuronidation and elimination of bilirubin. Resultant indirect hyperbilirubinemia with jaundice can cause premature discontinuation of atazanavir. Risk for bilirubin-related discontinuation is highest among individuals who carry two UGT1A1 decreased f...

Jul 19th, 2015 - Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) such as gefitinib, erlotinib, and afatinib are standard-of-care for first-line treatment of EGFR-mutant advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). These drugs have a proven benefit in terms of higher response rate, delaying progression and improvement of quality of life over palliative platinum-based chemotherapy. The m...

Updated UK Recommendations for HER2 assessment in breast cancer.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4316916
Journal of Clinical Pathology; Rakha EA, Pinder SE et. al.

Dec 10th, 2014 - Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) overexpression is present in approximately 15% of early invasive breast cancers, and is an important predictive and prognostic marker. The substantial benefits achieved with anti-HER2 targeted therapies in patients with HER2-positive breast cancer have emphasised the need for accurate assessment of HER2 status. Current data indicate that HER2 test...

Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics; Relling MV, McDonagh EM et. al.

May 3rd, 2014 - Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is associated with development of acute hemolytic anemia (AHA) induced by a number of drugs. We provide guidance as to which G6PD genotypes are associated with G6PD deficiency in males and females. Rasburicase is contraindicated in G6PD-deficient patients due to the risk of AHA and possibly methemoglobinemia. Unless preemptive genotyping has e...

EFNS guidelines on the diagnostic approach to pauci- or asymptomatic hyperCKemia.
https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1468-1331.2010.03012.x
European Journal of Neurology; Kyriakides T, Angelini C et. al.

Apr 21st, 2010 - To provide evidence-based guidelines to general neurologists for the assessment of patients with pauci- or asymptomatic hyperCKemia. Recent epidemiologic studies show that up to 20% of 'normal' individuals have an elevated creatine kinase activity in the serum (sCK). The possibility of a subclinical myopathy is often raised, and patients may be unnecessarily denied treatment with statins. Elect...
