Process variations are a manufacturing phenomenon that result in some parameters of the transistors in a real chip to be different from those specified in the design. One impact of these variations is that the affected circuits may perform faster or slower than the design target. Unfortunately, only a small fraction of chips speed up whereas the vast(More)
UNLABELLED Pegylated interferon (peg-IFN) and ribavirin (RBV) are effective in eradicating the hepatitis C virus in more than half of patients. However, anemia arising from RBV-induced hemolysis can prompt dose reductions and lower sustained virologic response (SVR) rates. In early clinical trials, Viramidine (VRD, renamed taribavirin), an RBV prodrug, was(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Pegylated interferon (peg-IFN) plus ribavirin (standard of care for chronic hepatitis C virus [HCV]), can cause dose-limiting anemia in up to 22% of patients. Viramidine is associated with a lower incidence of anemia because of its liver-targeting properties. METHODS The efficacy and safety of viramidine versus ribavirin plus peg-IFN(More)
UNLABELLED Ribavirin-induced hemolytic anemia can prompt dose reductions and lower sustained virologic response (SVR) rates in the treatment of patients with chronic hepatitis C. The study aimed to determine if weight-based dosing of taribavirin (TBV), an oral prodrug of ribavirin (RBV), demonstrated efficacy comparable to RBV while maintaining its(More)
Dronedarone is an antiarrhythmic agent approved in 2009 for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. An in-house preliminary study demonstrated that dronedarone inhibits cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 and 3A5 in a time-dependent manner. This study aimed to investigate the inactivation of CYP450 by dronedarone. We demonstrated for the first time that both(More)
This article has not been copyedited and formatted. The final version may differ from this version. Abstract Lapatinib, an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor used for breast cancer, has been reported to cause idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity. Recently, it has been found that lapatinib forms a metabolite-inhibitor complex (MIC) with CYP3A4 via the formation of an(More)
