BACKGROUND The optimization of combination therapy with ribavirin (RBV) and pegylated interferon alpha has substantially improved sustained virologic response (SVR) rates and lowered virologic relapse rates in patients infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV). In this study, we performed an analysis of the relationship between the end-of-treatment plasma RBV(More)

Anemia is a well-known RBV-related event in HCV therapy which is exacerbated by the addition of telaprevir and boceprevir. This retrospective study evaluated and compared ribavirin exposure and parameters able to influence hemoglobin decrease in a large population of patients treated with dual or triple therapy. Patients on triple therapy had higher(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Sorafenib is the medical reference for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Multiple forms of cytotoxicity are induced by sorafenib in HCC cells in vitro but it is unclear what extent of apoptosis and necrosis is induced in HCC patients receiving sorafenib. PATIENTS AND METHODS The M30 and M65 biomarkers, which reflect the release(More)
Sorafenib, a kinase inhibitor active against various solid tumours, induces oxidative stress and ferroptosis, a new form of oxidative necrosis, in some cancer cells. Clinically-applicable biomarkers that reflect the impact of sorafenib on the redox metabolism of cancer cells are lacking. We used gene expression microarrays, real-time PCR, immunoblot,(More)
N-methyl-2-pyridone-5-carboxamide (2PY, a major metabolite of nicotinamide, NAM) was recently identified as a uremic toxin. Recent interventional trials using NAM to treat high levels of phosphorus in end-stage renal disease have highlighted new potential uremic toxicities of 2PY. In the context of uremia, the accumulation of 2PY could be harmful-perhaps by(More)
This retrospective cohort study included 53 patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU), with an average age of 69 years, without neurologic disorder before initiation of a continuous piperacillin infusion at the standard dose and who underwent piperacillin serum concentration monitoring. Among them, 23 developed a neurologic disorder for which the(More)
Despite the availability of new oral anticoagulants, vitamin K antagonists (VKA, such as fluindione, acenocoumarol or warfarin) remain currently the goal standard medicines for oral prevention or treatment of thromboembolic disorders. They inhibit the cycle of the vitamin K and its participation in the enzymatic gamma-carboxylation of many proteins. The VKA(More)
