BACKGROUND Several methods have been presented for the analysis of complex interactions between genetic polymorphisms and/or environmental factors. Despite the available methods, there is still a need for alternative methods, because no single method will perform well in all scenarios. The aim of this work was to evaluate the performance of three selected(More)
BACKGROUND Hemodialysis has been shown to be a useful method of decreasing dabigatran plasma levels in situations that require rapid elimination of this thrombin inhibitor. However, there is currently no clinical recommendation for the accelerated/optimized elimination of dabigatran via hemodialysis (e.g., flow rates, filter type, duration of dialysis). (More)
Clarithromycin is a substrate and mechanism-based inhibitor of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 as well as a substrate and competitive inhibitor of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and organic anion-transporting polypeptides (OATP) 1B1 and 1B3. Administered concomitantly, clarithromycin causes drug–drug interactions (DDI) with the victim drugs midazolam (CYP3A4 substrate)(More)
