PURPOSE To characterize gene expression in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients after the first dose and chronic dosing of 30 microg, once weekly, intramuscular interferon-beta1a (IFN-beta) and to delineate the pharmacogenomic differences between Good Responders and Partial Responders to IFN-beta therapy. METHODS The treatment responses after the first(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate a semi-parametric, model-based approach for obtaining transcription rates from mRNA and protein expression. METHODS The transcription profile input was modeled using an exponential function of a cubic spline and the dynamics of translation; mRNA and protein degradation were modeled using the Hargrove-Schmidt model. The transcription(More)
The myxovirus resistance A (MXA) mRNA has been extensively investigated for assessing the biologic responses of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients to interferon-beta (IFN-beta) therapy. The objective of this study was to evaluate the associations between two MXA promoter region single nucleotide polymorphisms (rs2071430 and rs17000900) and the gene expression(More)
The size, dimensionality and the limited range of the data values makes visualization of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) datasets challenging. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of 3D VizStruct, a novel multi-dimensional data visualization technique for SNP datasets capable of identifying informative SNPs in genome-wide association(More)
PURPOSE Data visualization techniques for the pharmaceutical sciences have not been extensively investigated. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of VizStruct, a multidimensional visualization tool, for applications in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacogenomics. METHODS The VizStruct tool uses the first harmonic of the(More)
MOTIVATION The size, dimensionality and the limited range of the data values make visualization of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) datasets challenging. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of 3D VizStruct, a novel multi-dimensional data visualization technique for analyzing patterns in SNP datasets. RESULTS VizStruct is an(More)
BACKGROUND Interferon inhibitory activity (IIA) is a logical candidate for explaining neutralizing antibody-negative partial responsiveness to interferon beta in multiple sclerosis (MS), but its role has not been evaluated. OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of IIA and soluble interferon-alpha/beta receptor (sIFNR) in determining response of patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Overactive bladder (OAB) is often associated with a number of co-morbid medical conditions, including diabetes mellitus. This may necessitate several concomitant treatments, thus creating the potential for drug-drug interactions (DDIs). Trospium is renally eliminated, not metabolized via cytochrome P450; therefore, cytochrome P450 DDIs are(More)
Motivation: The size, dimensionality and the limited range of the data values make visualization of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) datasets challenging. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of 3D VizStruct, a novel multi-dimensional data visualization technique for analyzing patterns in SNP datasets. Results: VizStruct is an(More)
