Daptomycin is a lipopeptide antibiotic active against gram-positive organisms and recently approved for marketing in Japan. This study investigates the efficacy and safety of daptomycin in Japanese patients with skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) for regulatory filing in Japan. Overall, 111(More)
BS compounds, a series of new dihydropyridines, successfully overcame multidrug resistance in P388/ADR cells in vitro. These agents synergistically potentiated the cytotoxicity of Adriamycin to P388/ADR cells at a concentration of 1–2 μM, whereas they showed hardly any synergistic effect in the parental cell line (P388/S) at the same concentration. They(More)
The antifungal agents approved in Japan for pediatric use are limited and many unapproved drugs are actually used without clear instruction for dosage. We investigated the pharmacokinetics of caspofungin for the treatment of invasive candidiasis and invasive aspergillosis in 20 Japanese pediatric patients using a pediatric-specific dosage based on body(More)
UNLABELLED This was a phase I double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, 2-period, single-dose, crossover study in healthy Japanese subjects to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of a single bolus injection of daptomycin. Twenty healthy subjects were randomized; 16 received a single intravenous (IV) administration of 6 mg/kg of(More)
The relationships between pharmacokinetic (PK)/pharmacodynamic (PD) indices and outcomes were investigated in patients with skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI) who received daptomycin at 4 mg/kg/day. Efficacy was evaluated in 55 patients from whom Staphylococcus aureus was isolated, with success rates of 94.5% and 69.1% for clinical and microbiological(More)
Purpose: The in vivo antitumor activity of a novel topoisomerase I inhibitor, J-107088, was tested in athymic nude mice bearing subcutaneous or intracranial pediatric and adult malignant CNS tumor-derived xenografts. Methods: J-107088 was administered to animals on days 1–5 and 8–12 via intraperitoneal injection at a dose of 54 mg/kg (162 mg/m2) per day in(More)
