The aim of this study was to determine an optimum voriconazole target concentration, to study the influence of CYP2C19 gene status on metabolism of voriconazole and to identify a dose-adjustment strategy for voriconazole according to CYP2C19 polymorphism in patients with invasive fungal infections. A total of 328 voriconazole trough plasma concentrations(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to estimate the population pharmacokinetics of voriconazole, to identify the factors influencing voriconazole pharmacokinetics and to identify optimal dosage regimens for attaining target pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic indices against Aspergillus and Candida infections in patients with invasive fungal infections(More)
Tigecycline, a novel intravenously administered glycylcycline antibiotic, currently plays a key role in the management of complicated multiorganism infections. However, current liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry methods briefly describe parameters and the only reported internal standard was sometimes difficult to obtain. In our study, an(More)
The magnetic polymer microcapsules, as a promising environmental stimuli-responsive delivery vehicle, have been increasingly exploited to tackle the problem of remotely navigated delivery. This study presented a novel design and fabrication of magnetic poly(L-glutamic acid)/chitosan (PGA/CS) microcapsules. Magnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles were in situ(More)
BACKGROUND Antibiotic resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii (AB) is increasingly recognized as a major threat to global health. The extensive use of antimicrobial chemotherapy in clinical environments is considered a factor associated with the enhanced occurrence of antimicrobial resistance. METHODS The autoregressive integrated moving average model was(More)
Several studies have demonstrated that the ideal therapeutic effect of linezolid cannot be achieved in critically ill patients with the recommended standard dosing regimen of 600 mg every 12 h (q12h). Moreover, the optimal strategy for successful treatment is still lacking. This study analysed factors influencing the efficacy of linezolid treatment and(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To determine the incidence of hepatotoxicity in critically ill patients who were treated with voriconazole and to identify potential risk factors for voriconazole-associated hepatotoxicity in these patients. DESIGN Single-center prospective observational study. SETTING Intensive care unit (ICU) in a university-affiliated hospital in(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to identify the factors influencing trough teicoplanin concentrations (C(min)), to investigate the relationship between teicoplanin C(min) with efficacy and safety, and to determine a target therapeutic concentration. METHODS An analysis was performed on 95 serum concentrations from 50 patients with gram-positive(More)
BACKGROUND The number of reported cases of resistance to tigecycline is increasing. The aim of this study was to evaluate the current standard tigecycline dosage regimen from a pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) perspective. METHODS Pharmacokinetic parameters and microbiological data were analyzed by Monte Carlo simulation in an evaluation of(More)
The optimal therapy involving linezolid or vancomycin for suspected methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) nosocomial pneumonia (NP) remains controversial. This study compared the efficacy and safety of linezolid and vancomycin therapies in patients with NP. A systematic review of randomized controlled trials with meta-analyses performed by(More)
