Preoperative nutrition and postoperative liver function: a correlation study of pediatric living donor liver transplantation

glycemia in this study was relatively stable, which indicates that the grafts of the living donors were of higher quality than the DCD grafts. Table 2 also shows that the tacrolimus concentration and its standard deviation were relatively high during the first 7 days and then reached an acceptable level. Tacrolimus, an immunosuppressive drug, has a narrow therapeutic window and large pharmacokinetic variability with a poor correlation between the drug-dosing regimen and blood concentration. 16 Therefore, more studies are necessary to decide on an ideal dose and

Association of CYP3A5 and POR polymorphisms with the maintenance tacrolimus dosage requirement in Thai recipients of kidney transplants

interindividual variability is found in tacrolimus pharmacokinetics, particularly in the dosage required to achieve target blood concentrations [ 2 ]. The recommended C 0 levels of tacrolimus are 10 to 20 ng/mL during the first 3 months after transplantation (induction phase), followed by C 0 levels of 5 to10 ng/mL during the maintenance phase. Significant toxicity is seen with C 0 levels of 15 ng/mL [ 3 ]. Subsequent trials often used for C 0 ranged between 7 to 8 ng/mL in the early post-transplantation period, and 5 to 7 ng/mL during the maintenance phase. An

Fexofenadine and levocetirizine have equivalent effectiveness for persistent allergic rhinitis

antihistamines, while astemizole and terfenadine have been removed from the market in most countries because of their potential to the prolong QT interval, and cause serious polymorphic ventricular arrhythmias, such as torsades de pointes [ 3 ]. Various types of H 1 -receptor antagonists have various pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics properties. To date, fexofenadine, levocetirizine. and desloratadine are considered third generation antihistamines. Each drug has an advantage over the others. Among these three, desloratadine has the highest affinity for binding receptors

The use of Monte Carlo simulation to predict vancomycin dosage for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Thai patients of various ages and with varying degrees of renal function

pharmacokinetics in Thai patients [ 6 ]. The study illustrated that creatinine clearance (CL cr ) calculated by the Cockcroft–Gault equation and age were covariates of vancomycin clearance (CL v ) and volume of the central compartment ( V c ), respectively. Thus, suitable vancomycin dosage could vary depending on CL cr and age. In addition, MRSA susceptibility data to vancomycin is a crucial factor for evaluating proper vancomycin dosing. Canut et al. determined suitable vancomycin dosages for European patients with MRSA infection [ 7 ]. The study revealed that Belgian patients
