Although lamotrigine (LTG) appears to have a low propensity to cause pharmacokinetic interactions with other medications, it has been suggested that LTG may interfere with the elimination of carbamazepine 10,11-epoxide (CBZE), the active metabolite of carbamazepine (CBZ). Evidence for this pharmacokinetic interaction is inconclusive and conflicting,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this proteomic study was to look for changes taking place in plasma proteomes of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), unstable angina pectoris (UAP), and stable angina pectoris (SAP). METHODS Depleted plasma proteins were separated by 2D SDS-PAGE (pI 4-7), and proteomes were compared using Progenesis SameSpots statistical(More)
AIMS Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVSs) have been studied in chronic coronary artery disease, but not in acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). This prospective multicentre study analysed the feasibility and safety of BVS implantation during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (p-PCI) in STEMI. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
The anticonvulsant gabapentin is transported across biological membranes via the L-amino acid transport system (System-L). Absorption of gabapentin is saturable, and in-vitro data have previously demonstrated that both L-leucine and L-phenylalanine may compete with the intestinal transport of gabapentin. The purpose of this study therefore was to determine(More)
INTRODUCTION Peri-procedural myocardial infarction (PMI) is a frequent and prognostically important complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). This study was designed to determine the predictors of PMI in patients pre-treated with statins. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 418 stable angina pectoris patients taking statins and aspirin were(More)
INTRODUCTION Little is known about the prognosis of moderate versus critical carotid stenosis treated by carotid artery stenting (CAS). MATERIAL AND METHODS This was a retrospective analysis of a single-centre registry including 271 consecutive patients (69 ±9 years, 87% at high risk for surgery), in whom 308 procedures were performed. The study included(More)
INTRODUCTION The time course of pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A) levels was studied at admission, immediately after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and 1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 24 and 48 h after PCI in acute coronary syndrome with ST segment elevation (ACS-STE) to determine the impact of PCI, concomitant clinical complications and heparin(More)
Valproic acid (VPA) may cause impaired platelet function, thrombocytopenia and, occasionally, severe bleeding. Controversy exists both as to the mechanism of this alteration in hemostasis and as to whether these adverse effects are either dose-related or idiosyncratic. Previous investigations have focused primarily on pediatric patients who commonly were(More)
Drug interactions can significantly complicate the management of patients receiving multiple medications. It is essential therefore that potential pharmcokinetic interactions be evaluated as new antiepileptic medications are introduced. Lamotrigine (LTG) is a recently marketed medication whose pharmacokinetics are significantly influenced by concomitant(More)
