Using high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry, we assessed trough imatinib plasma levels in 68 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who responded or not to standard-dose imatinib, after at least 12 months' treatment. Mean trough imatinib plasma levels were significantly higher in the group with complete cytogenetic response(More)
The effects of some derivatives of homotaurine (3 APS), the well known GABA agonist, were tested on the voluntary intake of ethanol by rats. Spontaneously ethanol drinking rats (DR) were selected and had a constant voluntary intake of ethanol by rats. Spontaneously ethanol drinking rats (DR) were selected and had a constant voluntary intake of a 12% ethanol(More)
Objective: Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are a major cause of hospital admission and in-hospital morbidity. Departments of internal medicine are at the forefront of this problem. To increase the knowledge base, we did a study of the frequency, hazard function, avoidability, and cost of ADRs as a cause for admission in internal medicine, or when occurring(More)
AIMS To assess the frequency and cost of drug reactions causing or prolonging hospitalization. METHODS All patients admitted to an internal medicine ward over 6 months were evaluated to identify serious adverse reactions. The number of drug classes on admission or at the time of the adverse drug reaction (ADR) was counted. Excess ADR-related hospital stay(More)
Pre-clinical studies, active-control clinical trials and meta-analyses indicate that escitalopram (S-citalopram) might be more effective than citalopram, the racemic mixture of S- and R-citalopram. The present study aimed to confirm the superior efficacy of escitalopram over citalopram. A double-blind, randomized clinical trial was performed in which(More)
Objectives: The objective of this study was to describe determinants of current and subsequent benzodiazepine use in an elderly population, the Paquid cohort Methods: The study was conducted on a cohort of 2792 community-dwelling subjects 65 years of age or more living in the Gironde department, southwestern. Benzodiazepine use and its correlates were(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To determine whether real-life driving would produce different effects from those obtained in a driving simulator on fatigue, performances and sleepiness. DESIGN Cross-over study involving real driving (1200 km) or simulated driving after controlled habitual sleep (8 hours) or restricted sleep (2 hours). SETTING Sleep laboratory and(More)
The correct use of inhalation devices is an inclusion criterion for all studies comparing inhaled treatments. In real life, however, patients may make many errors with their usual inhalation device, which may negate the benefits observed in clinical trials. Our study was undertaken to compare inhalation device handling in real life. A total of 3811 patients(More)
Using the Echantillon Généraliste de Bénéficiaires: random 1/97 permanent sample of the French national healthcare insurance system database (EGB), we investigated whether, as previously suspected, the risk of cancer in insulin glargine (A21Gly,B31Arg,B32Arg human insulin) users is higher than in human insulin users. The investigation period was from 1(More)
We ran a randomized cross-over design study under sleep-deprived and non-sleep-deprived driving conditions to test the effects of sleep restriction on real driving performance. The study was performed in a sleep laboratory and on an open French highway. Twenty-two healthy male subjects (age = 21.5 +/- 2 years; distance driven per year = 12,225 +/- 4739 km(More)
