Absorption models used in the estimation of pharmacokinetic drug characteristics from plasma concentration data are generally empirical and simple, utilizing no prior information on gastro-intestinal (GI) transit patterns. Our aim was to develop and evaluate an estimation strategy based on a mechanism-based model for drug absorption, which takes into(More)
BACKGROUND In spite of increasing efforts to enhance patient safety, medication errors in hospitalised patients are still relatively common, but with potentially severe consequences. This study aimed to assess antineoplastic medication errors in both affected patients and intercepted cases in terms of frequency, severity for patients, and costs. METHODS A(More)
To develop a model predicting movement of non-disintegrating single unit dosage forms (or “tablet”) through the gastrointestinal tract and characterizing the effect of food intake, based on Magnetic Marker Monitoring data, allowing real-time location of a magnetically labeled formulation. Five studies including 30 individuals in 94 occasions under 3 food(More)
The purpose of this study was to explore the interval censoring induced by caliper measurements on smaller tumors during tumor growth experiments in preclinical studies and to show its impact on parameter estimations. A new approach, the so-called interval-M3 method, is proposed to specifically handle this type of data. Thereby, the interval-M3 method was(More)
Trastuzumab is a monoclonal antibody directed against the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). HER2 is amplified or overexpressed in about 15% of breast cancers and is associated with aggressive disease. Clinical benefits of trastuzumab have been established in the treatment of both early and metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer. Patients with(More)
Numerous oral anticancer chemotherapies are available. Non-adherence or over-adherence to these chemotherapies can lead to lowered efficacy and increased risk of adverse events. The objective of this study was to identify patients’ adherence profiles using a qualitative–quantitative method. A capecitabine treatment was initiated for 38 patients with(More)
The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of censoring due to animal sacrifice on parameter estimates and tumor volume calculated from two diameters in larger tumors during tumor growth experiments in preclinical studies. The type of measurement error that can be expected was also investigated. Different scenarios were challenged using the(More)
Optimal immunosuppressive therapy in acquired severe aplastic anemia (SAA) remains to be refined, especially cyclosporine (CsA) use. Current recommendations state that CsA trough blood concentrations (TBC) should be maintained between 200 and 400 ng/mL despite the lack of supporting data. This study aimed at quantifying relationships between CsA exposure(More)
The integrated glucose–insulin (IGI) model is a previously developed semi-mechanistic model that incorporates control mechanisms for the regulation of glucose production, insulin secretion, and glucose uptake. It has been shown to adequately describe insulin and glucose profiles in both type 2 diabetics and healthy volunteers following various glucose(More)
