Inflammation-related changes in pharmacokinetics have been described for a number of disease-states including cancer, infection, and autoimmune disorders. This study examined the impact of chronic hepatitis C infection (CHC) on the pharmacokinetics of the cytochrome P450 3A probe midazolam in patients without significant liver disease who were either(More)
Alectinib, a lipophilic, basic, anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) inhibitor with very low aqueous solubility, has received Food and Drug Administration-accelerated approval for the treatment of patients with ALK+ non-small-cell lung cancer. This paper describes the application of physiologically based absorption modeling during clinical development to(More)
BACKGROUND Saquinavir/ritonavir (1000/100 mg twice daily [BID]) is associated with dose- and exposure-dependent prolongation of the QT interval. The QT risk is considered higher during the first week of therapy, when saquinavir peak exposure has been observed. A modified regimen with a lower dose lead-in phase may reduce potential(More)
A 73-year-old man with new onset atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response underwent transthoracic echocardiography that revealed an echogenic linear structure along the left atrium, suggestive of cor triatriatum sinister (CTS). CTS was confirmed with transesophageal echocardiography which demonstrated a proximal accessory atrium receiving(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of danoprevir in combination with low-dose ritonavir (danoprevir/r) and placebo plus low-dose ritonavir on the pharmacokinetics of probe drugs for cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A and CYP2C9, in patients with chronic hepatitis C. A total of 54 patients infected with hepatitis C virus genotype 1 received an oral drug(More)
