There were no significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of micafungin and expression of hepatic multidrug resistance-associated protein 2 (ABCC2/Mrp2) between analbuminemic and Sprague-Dawley rats. Micafungin bound strongly to high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and moderately to gamma globulin. These results suggest that HDL and gamma globulin contribute(More)
Three microsome enzymes are involved in voriconazole (VRCZ) metabolism, CYP2C19, CYP3A4 and CYP2C9, and subjects classified as poor metabolizers (PM), which would include about 20% of Japanese population, had higher serum VRCZ concentrations than other subjects. Also, because VRCZ appears hepatotoxicity and visual disturbance in side effect, VRCZ must be(More)
Voriconazole (VRCZ), a broad-spectrum triazole, is served in two dosage forms-injection and oral. VRCZ is difference dosage of oral and intravenous administration writing a medical package insert in Japan. 6 mg/kg intravenous injection (IV) twice daily for first day as initial loading dose, followed by 3-4 mg/kg IV twice daily between meals is recommended.(More)
We examined the peck concentration (Cmax)/minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and the clinical efficacy in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) pneumonia and Gram-positive cocci bacteremia. We evaluated arbekacin (ABK) on 22 cases of pneumonia and 10 cases of bacteremia in Aichi Medical University Hospital between August 2008 and July 2011,(More)
BACKGROUND One of the major adverse events of caspofungin and micafungin is hepatotoxicity, however, there are few reports compared the incidence of hepatotoxicity between caspofungin and micafungin. Herein, the primary objective of this study was to compare the incidence of hepatotoxicity between caspofungin and micafungin treatments for patients with(More)
