Efficacy of milnacipran in patients with fibromyalgia.
In this Phase II study, milnacipran led to statistically significant improvements in pain and other symptoms of FM, the effect sizes were equal to those previously found with TCA, and the drug was generally well tolerated.

The risk of seizure recurrence during drug tapering and after the discontinuation of antiepileptic drug therapy in children with epilepsy is not different whether the medications are tapered over a six-week or a nine-month period.
Randomized trial of dapsone and aerosolized pentamidine for the prophylaxis of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and toxoplasmic encephalitis.
Valproate Metabolites and Hepatotoxicity in an Epileptic Population
Routine measurement of serum 4‐en‐VPA is unlikely to be a useful predictor of risk for developing fatal hepatotoxicity, as serum levels may not reflect presence or effects in the liver as it may be metabolized to further intermediates or be bound to tissue.
Safety and Efficacy of Epoprostenol in Patients with Severe Congestive Heart Failure
Pooled analysis of phase III clinical studies of palonosetron versus ondansetron, dolasetron, and granisetron in the prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV)

Palonosetron is more effective than older 5HT3 RAs for controlling CINV in the delayed and overall postchemotherapy periods.

Remimazolam is a new, ultra‐short‐acting benzodiazepine developed for intravenous (IV) use during procedural sedation and in general anaesthesia and its effects on cardiac repolarization are characterized.
Evaluation of the Ames Seralyzer for the Determination of Carbamazepine, Phenobarbital, and Phenytoin Concentrations in Saliva
The ARIS technique for CBZ, PB, and PHT saliva determination provides acceptable accuracy, precision, and sensitivity for therapeutic monitoring and in practice, the benefits of the ARIS saliva technique, including ease of collection, safety, patient/parent acceptance, and short analysis time, are striking.
A randomized, multicenter study to determine the safety and efficacy of the immunoconjugate SGN-15 plus docetaxel for the treatment of non-small cell lung carcinoma.
Moxifloxacin-induced QTc interval prolongations in healthy male Japanese and Caucasian volunteers: a direct comparison in a thorough QT study.
Moxifloxacin-induced QTc prolongations did not differ significantly between the Japanese and Caucasian subjects, and further studies in other populations and with other QT-prolonging drugs are needed to clarify whether inter-ethnic differences in QT sensitivity exist and whether ethnicity of the study population may affect the outcome of a TQT study.
