Background: Pain treatment post orthopaedic care in the elderly is complicated and requires careful follow-up. Current guidelines state all patients prescribed opioids should have a plan for gradual reduction, with the treatment progressively reduced and ended if any pain remains after more than three months. How this works in primary care remains to be explored.The aim was to describe pain treatment and its follow-up in primary care of elderly patients after orthopaedic care. Methods: In this d...

Background: Itraconazole (ITZ), a triazole antifungal agent, is metabolized to hydroxy-ITZ (OH-ITZ), keto-ITZ (KT-ITZ), and N-desalkyl ITZ (ND-ITZ) by cytochrome P450 3A4. The pharmacokinetics of ND-ITZ remain largely unknown due to the lack of an accurate and reliable determination method. This study aimed to develop a simultaneous determination method for ITZ and its three major metabolites including ND-ITZ in human plasma using isocratic liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectromet...

Background: Effective treatment for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection requires close cooperation among healthcare professionals. This is because maintaining continuity with treatment regimens is important in anti-HIV therapy. In addition, explaining medication use is more important than that for other diseases. Since 2010, pharmacists at the Mie University Hospital have been interviewing patients, selecting drugs, and formulating medication plans for HIV-positive patients. In August 2...

Background: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder, mainly characterized by impairment of social communication and restricted interests. ASD is frequently accompanied by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which is characterized by carelessness, hyperactivity and impulsivity (ASD/ADHD). It has been suggested that ASD and ADHD are associated with oxidative stress, that is, that patients with ASD/ADHD are in a state of increased oxidative stress. There are cur...

Background: Four-factor prothrombin complex concentrate (4F-PCC) must be administered as soon as possible, and in our emergency intensive care unit (EICU), pharmacists are available on weekdays for consultation on expediting 4F-PCC administration. Although recent reports have described a reduction in time to 4F-PCC administration, few studies have addressed if this is because of EICU pharmacist's intervention, and there are no such studies in Japan. Therefore, we aimed to examine whether EICU ph...

Background: Interferon and ribavirin have been used as therapeutic agents for chronic hepatitis C infection or C-compensated cirrhosis in the conventional treatment. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) -specific direct-acting antiviral agents that directly inhibit the growth process of HCV have been approved since 2011. However, in the early post-marketing vigilance phase of ledipasvir acetonate/sofosbuvir (LDV/SOF), there were reports of interstitial lung disease in 4 out of 32,700 cases with death in 1 ca...
Background: Repaglinide is widely prescribed to reduce postprandial hyperglycemia and elevated glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels associated with type 2 diabetes, and clopidogrel is a thienopyridine antiplatelet agent and widely used in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. It has been suggested that the concomitant use of repaglinide with clopidogrel may inhibit repaglinide metabolism, because repaglinide is a substrate of cytochrome P450 2C8 (CYP2C8) and the main metabolite of clopidogr...

Background: Few systematic reviews have examined the effects of sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) on lipid profiles in Asian patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. We conducted a systematic review with a meta-analysis to summarize the available literature and confirm the effects of SGLT2is on lipid profiles in these patients. Methods: We searched the electronic databases MEDLINE, CENTRAL, and Ichushi-web for studies from the dates of their earliest publication to July 2018, a...

Background: Because cisplatin (CDDP) decreases upon light exposure, it is necessary to prevent such exposure during administration. However, the shielding conditions employed are not uniform. Therefore, in this study, we examined the shielding effects of four shading covers, which are commonly used to ensure the stability of CDDP in clinical settings. Methods: Four shielding conditions, along with a control, were tested under a 1000-Lux white fluorescent lamp at room temperature: aluminum foil (...
Background: Inappropriate dosing of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) has been associated with clinical safety and efficacy; however, little is known about clinical data associated with an inappropriate DOAC dosing in Japan. In addition, there is no report in which the appropriateness of DOAC dosing between prescription for inpatients and for outpatients was examined. In this study, we aimed to investigate the prevalence and factors associated in the inappropriate dosing of DOACs in patients wi...
