UDP-glucuronosyltransferase1A1 (UGT1A1) polymorphisms have been related with irinotecan toxicity. The purpose of this study was to determine the associations between UGT1A1(*)28 and (*)6 polymorphisms and irinotecan toxicity in Thai patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. 44 metastatic colorectal cancer patients received irinotecan-based chemotherapy.(More)
This study was designed to investigate the frequency of CYP2D6 polymorphisms and evaluate the association between genetic polymorphisms of CYP2D6 and tamoxifen therapeutic outcome in Thai breast cancer patients. We recruited 48 breast cancer patients who received adjuvant tamoxifen for evaluating CYP2D6 genetic polymorphisms using microarray-based(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the association of genetic variants of CYP2C19 (CYP2C19*2, CYP2C19*3 and CYP2C19*17 alleles) and voriconazole trough plasma concentrations in Thai patients with invasive fungal infection. A total of 285 samples from patients with invasive fungal infection and treated with voriconazole were prospectively enrolled. At(More)
Calculated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (cLDL-C) may differ from direct measurement (dLDL-C), and this difference may depend on presence of small, dense LDL (sdLDL) particles in addition to variation in triglycerides (TG) and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) concentrations. The presence of such dependence would offer a simple means to(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the impact of CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 polymorphisms in predicting tamoxifen efficacy and clinical outcomes in Thai breast cancer patients. METHODS Polymorphisms of CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 were genotyped by the AmpliChip™ CYP450 Test (Roche Molecular Diagnostics, Branchburg, NJ, USA) for 57 patients, who were matched as recurrent versus(More)
AIMS To investigate the frequency of CYP2B6 polymorphisms and the influence of haplotype structure on plasma efavirenz concentrations in Thai adults with HIV-1 infection. METHODS Genotyping of nine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, c.64C>T, c.499C>G, c.516G>T, c.785A>G, c.1375A>G, c.1459C>T, g.3003T>C, g.18492C>T and g.21563C>T) of CYP2B6 were(More)
BACKGROUND After rapid scaling up of antiretroviral therapy in HIV-1-infected patients, the data of primary HIV-1 drug resistance in Thailand is still limited. This study aims to determine the prevalence and associated factors of primary HIV-1 drug resistance in Thailand. METHODS A prospective observational study was conducted among antiretroviral-naïve(More)
  Efavirenz is mainly metabolized by cytochrome P450 2B6 (CYP2B6). This study aimed to examine the frequencies of CYP2B6 and the association between CYP2B6 polymorphisms and plasma efavirenz concentrations in an HIV-1 infected Thai population. Mid-dose plasma efavirenz concentration was determined at 12 weeks following the initiation of an antiretroviral(More)
BACKGROUND Allopurinol is a frequent cause of severe cutaneous adverse reactions (SCARs), such as drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS), Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). The reactions can potentially be fatal. As drug rechallenge in patients with a history of drug-induced SCARs is contraindicated,(More)
Protease inhibitor (PI) resistance-associated mutations (RAMs) are commonly observed in PI-naïve patients who infected with HIV-1 subtype A/E. Few data are available on the genetic mechanisms of PI resistance in non-B HIV-1. This study was aimed to compare PI-RAMs between PI-naïve and -experienced patients and determine PI resistance in each group.(More)
