  • Interventions for idiopathic steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome in children. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019; 2019(11)Liu ID, Willis NS, … Hodson EM
  • CONCLUSIONS: To date RCTs have demonstrated that CNIs may increase the likelihood of complete or partial remission compared with placebo/no treatment or CPA. For other regimens assessed, it remains uncertain whether the interventions alter outcomes because the certainty of the evidence is low. Further adequately powered, well designed RCTs are needed to evaluate other regimens for children with idiopathic SRNS. Since SRNS represents a spectrum of diseases, future studies should enrol children from better defined groups of patients with SRNS.
  • Influence of azole antifungal drugs on blood tacrolimus levels after switching from intravenous tacrolimus to once-daily modified release tacrolimus in patients receiving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Pharm Ther 2019; 44(4):565-571Mimura A, Yamaori S, … Ohmori S
  • CONCLUSIONS: A total of 52 patients (34 FLCZ and 18 VRCZ) were included in the analysis. There were no significant differences in the most recent daily dose (Div) and blood level (Civ) of Tac-iv, Civ /Div , and ratio of daily dose of tacrolimus on the first to second day after changing to Tac-MR (Dpo1-2) to Div between FLCZ and VRCZ groups (P > 0.2). The trough levels of tacrolimus on the first to second day after switching to Tac-MR (Cpo1-2) and on the third to fifth day after the switch (Cpo3-5) were significantly higher in the VRCZ group than the FLCZ group (P < 0.05). The values of (Civ /Div)/(Cpo1-2 /Dpo1-2) and (Civ /Div)/(Cpo3-5 /Dpo3-5) in the VRCZ group were significantly lower compared with those in the FLCZ group (P < 0.05). Furthermore, individual values of (Civ /Div)/(Cpo3-5 /Dpo3-5) in the FLCZ group varied widely.Voriconazole increased blood tacrolimus level more markedly than FLCZ after switching to Tac-MR, whereas FLCZ caused a large variation in tacrolimus blood level. These results suggest that therapeutic monitoring of tacrolimus after the switch may need to be performed carefully considering that orally co-administered VRCZ and FLCZ exhibit different change in blood tacrolimus level just after the switch.
