INTRODUCTION Attaining optimal glycemic targets in patients with type 2 diabetes is often hard and compromised by the shortcomings of the several treatments. Areas covered: When glycemic levels are not adequately controlled, an association of GLP-1 receptor agonists and insulin therapy can be adopted. In order to assess the benefit/risk profile of this(More)
OBJECTIVE The current study aims to assess the preventability of the contrast media adverse drug reactions reported through the Campania spontaneous reporting system, identifying the possible limitations emerged in this type of evaluation. METHOD All the individual case safety reports validated by the Campania Pharmacovigilance Regional Centre from July(More)
Etanercept is a competitive inhibitor of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) a polypeptide hormone, involved in the development of the immune system, in host defense and immune surveillance. Even if the etanercept mechanism of action is not completely understood, it is supposed that it negatively modulates biological responses mediated by molecules(More)
Dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP)-4 inhibitors are a class of oral drugs used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The pharmacological inhibition of DPP-4 seems to also induce adverse events related to cytokine-induced inflammation. Recently, several clinical cases regarding the association of DPP-4 inhibitors and the onset of arthritis/arthralgia(More)
Purpose: This study aims to investigate preventability criteria of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) involving non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) by analyzing individual case safety reports (ICSRs) sent through Campania region (Italy) spontaneous reporting system from July 2012 to October 2016. Methods: For all the ICSRs that reported NSAIDs as(More)
Causality assessment is a fundamental biomedical technique for the signal detection performed by Pharmacovigilance centers in a Spontaneous reporting system. Moreover, it is a crucial and important practice for detecting preventable adverse drug reactions. Among different methods for causality assessment, algorithms (such as the Naranjo, or Begaud Methods)(More)
BACKGROUND According to health technology assessment, patients deserve the best medicine. The development of drugs associated with solubility enhancers, such as cyclodextrins, represents a measure taken in order to improve the management of patients. Different drugs, such as estradiol, testosterone, dexamethasone, opioids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories(More)
According to World Health Organization, medication adherence refers not only to pharmacological treatment, but also extends to all behaviors which guarantee patient's health. Poor medication adherence is the main cause of low efficacy of pharmacological therapy and it is more common in chronic diseases. For example, among hypothyroid patients, it was(More)
INTRODUCTION Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic immune-mediated inflammatory disorder of the brain and spinal cord characterized by inflammation, demyelination, and axonal degeneration. Area covered: Even though the pharmacological armamentarium for MS treatment is considerably improved in the last 20 years, safety data especially for the second-line and(More)
