There is a pharmacokinetic interaction between digoxin and diazepam that increases the elimination half-life of digoxin. It may be due to a reduction of digoxin tissue concentrations and to an enhanced effect of diazepam on digoxin binding to plasma albumin. Diazepam (10(-5) M) also induces a positive inotropic effect in guinea-pig isolated atria. In a(More)
BACKGROUND Detrimental bidirectional pharmacokinetic interactions have been observed when telaprevir (TVR) and ritonavir (RTV)-boosted human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) protease inhibitors are coadministered in healthy volunteers. Our aim was to evaluate the role of RTV in the bidirectional TVR and atazanavir (ATV) interactions. METHOD An open-label,(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare intracellular and plasma etravirine concentrations when etravirine was given at 200 mg/12 h versus 400 mg/24 h and to evaluate whether the results would support once-daily dosing. METHODS This was an open-label sequential study in which eight patients on protease inhibitor (PI)-sparing regimens containing etravirine were included.(More)
A higher incidence of anemia has been observed during the treatment of hepatitis C virus genotype 1 (HCV-1) infection with pegylated alpha interferon (pegIFN-α), ribavirin, and telaprevir. We assessed the impacts that concomitant administration of telaprevir and changes in the glomerular filtration rate have on ribavirin plasma levels. The minimum(More)
