OBJECTIVE To investigate whether antidrug antibodies and/or drug non-trough levels predict the long-term treatment response in a large cohort of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treated with adalimumab or etanercept and to identify factors influencing antidrug antibody and drug levels to optimize future treatment decisions. METHODS A total of 331(More)
Stroke is a common disease often requiring rehabilitation, which may be prolonged by shoulder pain. The true incidence of post stroke shoulder pain has not been fully evaluated. In order to establish this, we undertook a prospective study of 123 consecutive patients with a diagnosis of acute stroke during a 6-month period. Patients were assessed by(More)
Venetoclax (ABT-199/GDC-0199) is a selective, potent, first-in-class BCL-2 inhibitor that restores apoptosis in cancer cells and has demonstrated clinical efficacy in a variety of hematological malignancies. The objective of this analysis was to characterize the population pharmacokinetics of venetoclax and identify demographic, pathophysiologic, and(More)
Venetoclax (ABT-199/GDC-0199) is a selective first-in-class B cell lymphoma-2 inhibitor being developed for the treatment of hematological malignancies. The aim of this study was to determine the potential of venetoclax to prolong the corrected QT (QTc) interval and to evaluate the relationship between systemic venetoclax concentration and QTc interval. The(More)
BACKGROUND Venetoclax is a selective, potent, first-in-class B-cell lymphoma-2 inhibitor that restores apoptosis in cancer cells and has demonstrated efficacy in a variety of hematological malignancies. OBJECTIVE The objective of this research was to characterize the relationship between venetoclax exposures and efficacy and safety in patients with(More)
Twenty-two preterm infants of gestational age 26 to 34 weeks were treated with amikacin for suspected bacterial infection, using a dose of 7.5 mg/kg, 12-hourly, intra muscularly. Blood levels were measured using a radio-immunoassay kit capable of giving results within 4 h. One-hour peak levels showed wide variation and the mean level one hour after the(More)
A 65 year old man with multiple vascular risk factors was admitted after a stroke. Five days later, he complained of left shoulder pain. This was a dull ache, worse on movement and on touching the shoulder. He also voluntarily described a second diVerent pain, as a “clawing at the flesh” that was constant. Abnormalities on examination were a global decrease(More)
Lopinavir-ritonavir is frequently prescribed to HIV-1-infected women during pregnancy. Decreased lopinavir exposure has been reported during pregnancy, but the clinical significance of this reduction is uncertain. This analysis aimed to evaluate the need for lopinavir dose adjustment during pregnancy. We conducted a population pharmacokinetic analysis of(More)
Venetoclax is indicated at a dosage of 400 mg daily (QD) for the treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) with 17p deletion who have received at least 1 prior therapy. Ongoing trials are evaluating venetoclax in combination with CD20 targeting monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab. The objective of this research was to characterize(More)
