The incidence of acute renal failure, defined by the risk, injury, or failure criteria of the RIFLE criteria (risk, injury, failure, loss, and end-stage kidney disease), in 66 patients who received colistimethate sodium was 45%, and 21% of patients stopped therapy because of nephrotoxicity. The RIFLE criteria should be used in the future to allow for(More)
Faldaprevir, an investigational agent for hepatitis C virus treatment, is well tolerated but associated with rapidly reversible, dose-dependent, clinically benign, unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Multidisciplinary preclinical and clinical studies were used to characterize mechanisms underlying this hyperbilirubinemia. In vitro, faldaprevir inhibited key(More)
BACKGROUND The true benefit of pharmacologic intervention to improve cognition in schizophrenia may not be evident without regular cognitive enrichment. Clinical trials assessing the neurocognitive effects of new medications may require engagement in cognitive remediation exercises to stimulate the benefit potential. However, the feasibility of large-scale(More)
Optical energy can be harnessed on the nanoscale by exploiting plasmonic resonances in metallic nanostructures. These resonances are the result of the unique optical properties of metals and their abundance of conduction electrons. Utilizing these properties, it is possible to engineer metallic nano-devices that operate with large electric field intensities(More)
