A Quantitative Study Of Drug Recrystallization In Drug-In-Adhesive Transdermal Patches Using Vibrational Spectroscopy, Yi Li
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Drug-in-adhesive (DIA) transdermal patches are an important type of transdermal drug delivery system (TDDS). The drugs used in the DIA system are frequently present in metastable forms, such as amorphous solids or supercooled liquids. These drug states are thermodynamically unstable and tend to undergo recrystallization. Recrystallization of the active pharmaceutical ingredient can adversely affect the efficacy of transdermal products. This dissertation demonstrates a systematic approach to quantify the crystalline content of the API in DIA systems. This approach uses a novel method of preparing calibration standards and a spectroscopic method to reliably predict crystalline content in DIA patches. Spectroscopic tools ...

College of Pharmacy (TUC) Publications and Research
Value-added pharmacy services encompass traditional and emerging services provided by pharmacists to individual and entire populations of persons increasingly under the auspices of a public health mandate. The success of value-added pharmacy services is enhanced when they are carried out and assessed using appropriate theory-based paradigms. Many of the more important management theories for pharmacy services consider the "servicescape" of these services recognizing the uniqueness of each patient and service encounter that vary based upon health needs and myriad other factors. In addition, implementation science principles help ensure the financial viability and sustainability of these services. This commentary reviews some ...
Quinolone Allergy, 2019 Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine
Quinolone Allergy, Edoabasi U. Mcgee, Essie Samuel, Bernadett Boronea, Nakoasha Dillard, Madison N Milby, Susan J Lewis
PCOM Scholarly Papers
Quinolones are the second most common antibiotic class associated with drug-induced allergic reactions, but data on quinolone allergy are scarce. This review article discusses the available evidence on quinolone allergy, including prevalence, risk factors, diagnosis, clinical manifestations, cross-reactivity, and management of allergic reactions. Although the incidence of quinolone allergy is still lower than beta-lactams, it has been increasingly reported in recent decades, most likely from its expanded use and the introduction of moxifloxacin. Thorough patient history remains essential in the evaluation of quinolone allergy. Many diagnostic tools have been investigated, but skin tests can yield false-positive results and in vitro ...

The gut microbiome plays an important role in human health and influences the development of chronic diseases ranging from metabolic disease to gastrointestinal disorders and colorectal cancer. Of increasing prevalence in Western societies, these conditions carry a high burden of care. Dietary patterns and environmental factors have a profound effect on shaping gut microbiota in real time. Diverse populations of intestinal bacteria mediate their beneficial effects through the fermentation of dietary fiber to produce short-chain fatty acids, endogenous signals with important roles in lipid homeostasis and reducing inflammation. Recent progress shows that an individual’s starting microbial profile is a ...

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common malignancy in men and is the leading cause of cancer-related male mortality. A disulfide cyclic peptide ligand [CTVRTSADC] 1 has been previously found to target extra domain B of fibronectin (EDB-FN) in the extracellular matrix that can dierentiate aggressive PCa from benign prostatic hyperplasia. We synthesized and optimized the stability of ligand 1 by amide cyclization to obtain [KTVRTSADE] 8 using Fmoc/tBu solid-phase chemistry. Optimized targeting ligand 8 was found to be stable in phosphate buered saline (PBS, pH 6.5, 7.0, and 7.5) and under redox conditions, with a ...

Gangliosides: Treatment Avenues In Neurodegenerative Disease., Pierre J. Magistretti, Fred H. Geisler, Jay S. Schneider, P. Andy Li, Hubert Fiumelli, Simonetta Sipione
Department of Pathology, Anatomy, and Cell Biology Faculty Papers
Gangliosides are cell membrane components, most abundantly in the central nervous system (CNS) where they exert among others neuro-protective and -restorative functions. Clinical development of ganglioside replacement therapy for several neurodegenerative diseases was impeded by the BSE crisis in Europe during the 1990s. Nowadays, gangliosides are produced bovine-free and new pre-clinical and clinical data justify a reevaluation of their therapeutic potential in neurodegenerative diseases. Clinical experience is greatest with monosialo-tetrahexosyl-ganglioside (GM1) in the treatment of stroke. Fourteen randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in overall >2,000 patients revealed no difference in survival, but consistently superior neurological outcomes vs. placebo. GM1 was ...
Identifying The Enzyme Involved In Vacuolar Atpase Acetylation During Doxorubicin-Induced Cardiotoxicity, 2019 The University of Western Ontario
Identifying The Enzyme Involved In Vacuolar Atpase Acetylation During Doxorubicin-Induced Cardiotoxicity, Rebecca Dang, Tianqing Peng
Western Research Forum
Doxorubicin is an established anticancer medication infamous for its bright colouration and extremely toxic side effects. Emerging studies support that the imbalance between acetylation and deacetylation disrupts the autophagic flux leading to doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity. Vacuolar ATPases are a family of electrogenic proton pumps present on the lysosomal membrane that create an acidic environment for proteases to degrade proteins. Our preliminary study found that acetylated Vacuolar ATPase subunit V0 D1 levels increased in doxorubicin-injected mouse hearts. However, it is unknown how acetylation of subunit V0 D1 is modulated and whether this modification plays a role in doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity.
Mouse Performance On A Novel Touchscreen Continuous Performance Task Is Dependent On Signaling In The Prelimbic Cortex, Tyler D. Dexter, Daniel Palmer, Amy C. Reichelt, Anita Taksokhan, Lisa M. Saksida, Tim J. Bussey
Western Research Forum
Attention is the cognitive processing that facilitates the ability to target and attend to relevant environmental stimuli, while filtering out irrelevant or distracting stimuli. Control over selective attention is theorized to be dependent on organized neural communication that stems from the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC). To evaluate selective and sustained attention, mice were trained on the novel touchscreen rodent continuous performance task (rCPT), a task designed to emulate the human CPT. In the rodent version, images are continuously presented on a touchscreen, where mice have been trained to selectively respond to one image type while suppressing responses to all others ...

Stacy D. Brown
Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic opioid used for the treatment of opioid dependence. Opioid use, including buprenorphine, has been increasing in recent years, in the general population and in pregnant women. Consequently, there has been a rise in frequency of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), associated with buprenorphine use during pregnancy. The purpose of this study was to investigate correlations between buprenorphine and buprenorphine-metabolite concentrations in cord blood and onset of NAS in buprenorphine exposed newborns.
Nineteen (19) newborns who met inclusion criteria were followed after birth until discharge in a double-blind non-intervention study, after maternal consent. Cord blood and ...
Co-Located Retail Clinics And Pharmacies: An Opportunity To Provide More Primary Care., 2019 Touro University California, Touro College of Pharmacy (New York)
Co-Located Retail Clinics And Pharmacies: An Opportunity To Provide More Primary Care., Katherine K. Knapp, Keith Yoshizuka, Debra Sasaki-Hill, Rory Caygill-Walsh
College of Pharmacy (TUC) Publications and Research
This paper proposes that co-located retail clinics (RCs) and community pharmacies can increase opportunities to provide more accessible, affordable, and patient-friendly primary care services in the United States. RCs are small businesses of about 150-250 square feet with a clientele of about 10-30 patients each day and most frequently staffed by nurse practitioners (NPs). Community pharmacies in the U.S. at ~67,000 far outnumber RCs at ~2800, thereby opening substantial opportunity for growth. Community pharmacies and pharmacists have been working to increase on-site clinical services, but progress has been slowed by the relative isolation from other practitioners. An ideal ...
