PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the dose-concentration relationship and clinical effect of transdermal fentanyl (TF) in patients with sickle cell pain crisis (SCPC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Ten patients aged 9-16 years were studied. Patients initially received a TF dose of 25 (n = 7) or 50 (n = 3) micrograms/h if morphine use was > 2.5(More)
The loop diuretics furosemide and bumetanide are frequently employed in the pediatric population for the management of fluid overload in both acute and chronic disease states. They act mainly by inhibiting sodium reabsorption in the nephron at the thick ascending limb of Henle’s loop. Important pharmacokinetic differences between adults and infants include(More)
Tacrolimus is an immunosuppressant used to prevent rejection of transplanted organs. It is metabolized in both the gut and the liver by the cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 enzyme system and is a substrate for the P-glycoprotein (P-gp) drug efflux pump. As CYP3A4 enzymes and P-gp are present at differing concentrations throughout the gastrointestinal tract, the(More)
