To evaluate the usefulness of daptomycin, tigecycline, and linezolid for the treatment of MRSA infection compared with vancomycin in Belgium, the United Kingdom/Ireland, and Spain. The methodology included the following steps: acquisition of microbiological and pharmacokinetic data, Monte Carlo simulation, estimation of the probability of target attainment(More)
We have studied the pharmacokinetics and distribution of ketamine and its biotransformation products in dogs after extradural administration of ketamine at L4-5. The mean apparent uptake rate constants of ketamine for plasma and CSF were 4.17 (SD 1.84) and 5.15 (2.50) h-1, respectively. The concentrations of ketamine in CSF were greater than those found in(More)
PURPOSE Gene-mediated enzyme replacement is a reasonable and highly promising approach for the treatment of Fabry disease (FD). The objective of the present study was to demonstrate the potential applications of solid lipid nanoparticle (SLN)-based nonviral vectors for the treatment of FD. METHODS SLNs containing the pR-M10-αGal A plasmid that encodes the(More)
The goal of the present study was to analyze the potential application of nonviral vectors based on solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) for the treatment of ocular diseases by gene therapy, specifically X-linked juvenile retinoschisis (XLRS). Vectors were prepared with SLN, dextran, protamine, and a plasmid (pCMS-EGFP or pCEP4-RS1). Formulations were(More)
To elucidate whether a dose of 2 g cefoxitin as a prophylactic agent in patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery is able to maintain free drug concentrations above the minimum inhibitory concentration of the microorganisms involved in surgical site infection. This was a prospective study involving 56 patients electively undergoing rectal or colon(More)
INTRODUCTION Acute otitis media is the most common respiratory tract infection in infancy and early childhood that is managed with antimicrobial agents. Ninety-three per cent of the cases diagnosed in Spain are treated with antibiotics, and Streptococcus pneumoniae and untypeable Haemophilus influenzae are the most frequently isolated pathogens. The aim of(More)
