Clinical efficacy of chemotherapy in colorectal cancer is subjected to broad inter-individual variations leading to the inability to predict outcome and toxicity. The topoisomerase I inhibitor irinotecan (CPT-11) is worldwide approved for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer and undergoes extensive peripheral and tumoral metabolism. PXR is a(More)
BACKGROUND Medication errors (ME) are major public health issues in hospitals because of their consequences on patients' morbi-mortality. This study aims to evaluate the prevalence of ME at admission and discharge of hospitalization in diabetic and non-diabetic patients, and determine their potential clinical impact. METHOD This prospective observational(More)
The pregnane X receptors (PXRs) and the constitutive androstane receptor (CAR) were initially isolated as nuclear receptors regulating xenobiotic metabolism and elimination, alleviating chemical insults. However, recent works suggest that these xenoreceptors play an endobiotic role in modulating hepatic lipid metabolism. In this study, we show that CAR(More)
For eeective collaboration using a computer, it is often useful for the collaborators to share applications. Two common methods of implementing application sharing are either to share a single application among the participants or to replicate an application, one per participant and keep all copies of the application synchronized. The process of(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS The nuclear Pregnane X Receptor (PXR, NR1I2) plays a pivotal role in xenobiotic metabolism. Here, we sought to characterize a new PXR isoform (hereafter called small PXR or sPXR) stemming from alternative transcription starting sites downstream of a CpG Island located near exon 3 of the human PXR gene. METHODS Quantitative RT-PCR,(More)
CONTEXT Obesity is associated with insulin-resistance (IR), the key feature of type 2 diabetes. Although chronic low-grade inflammation has been identified as a central effector of IR development, it has never been investigated simultaneously at systemic level and locally in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue in obese humans characterized for their insulin(More)
WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) is a rare but severe adverse effect of antipsychotic drugs. CASE DESCRIPTION We report two cases of NMS highlighted by clinical pharmacists in an emergency unit during summer. One of them was fatal. Medication reconciliation processes performed at admission identified treatment with loxapine(More)
OBJECTIVE First, the aim of the study was to assess the prevalence, characteristics, and severity of unintended medication discrepancies (UMDs) and medication errors (MEs) at admission and discharge of hospitalization. Second, the aim of the study was to identify clinical and hospitalization factors associated with risk of UMDs as well as characteristics of(More)
