  1. 1. Improving the Quality and Safety of Drug Use in Hospitalized Elderly : Assessing the Effects of Clinical Pharmacist Interventions and Identifying Patients at Risk of Drug-related Morbidity and Mortality

    Author : Anna Alassaad; Håkan Melhus; Margareta Hammarlund-Udenaes; Johan Sundström; Claes Mörlin; Lene Juel Kjeldsen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adverse drug events; inappropriate prescribing; medication errors; polypharmacy; medication reconciliation; medication review; patient drug counseling; multi-dose dispensed drugs; risk-estimation; multiprofessional collaboration; prediction model; quality measure; rehospitalization;

    Abstract : Older people admitted to hospital are at high risk of rehospitalization and medication errors. We have demonstrated, in a randomized controlled trial, that a clinical pharmacist intervention reduces the incidence of revisits to hospital for patients aged 80 years or older admitted to an acute internal medicine ward.

  2. 2. Enhancing the therapeutic effect of biological drugs with protein engineering : Focusing on pre-clinical Alzheimer’s disease therapy

    Author : Fadi Rofo; Greta Hultqvist; Stina Syvänen; Sara Mangsbo; Joy Zuchero; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer’s disease; amyloid-beta; blood-brain barrier; transferrin receptor; protein-drugs; multivalent-bispecific antibodies;

    Abstract : Aggregation of the amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) is one of the main pathological hallmarks in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The soluble Aβ aggregates (oligomers and protofibrils) have shown to be the most harmful species. Hence, targeting these aggregates can be of therapeutic potential. READ MORE

  3. 3. Intracellular unbound drug concentrations : Methodology and application for understanding cellular drug exposure

    Author : André Mateus; Per Artursson; Pär Matsson; José A. G. Morais; Jeff Krise; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intracellular unbound drug concentrations; free drug; drug binding; drug transport; drug accumulation; cellular drug response; drug target engagement; Pharmaceutical Science; Farmaceutisk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Most known drug targets and metabolizing enzymes are located inside cells. Interactions with these proteins are determined by intracellular unbound drug concentrations. Assessing intracellular drug exposure is technically challenging, but essential for predicting pharmacokinetic, pharmacological, and toxicological profiles of new drugs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Coxsackievirus B3 Infection and Host Defence Responses Change the Metabolism of PBDE

    Author : Magnus Lundgren; Nils-Gunnar Ilbäck; Hans Tjälve; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Coxsackievirus; environmental pollutants; PBDE; cytokines; chemokines; metabolism; infection; tissue distribution; toxicology; virology; immunology; Toxicology; Toxikologi; Virology; Virologi; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : It has been suggested that the rising amounts of chemicals in the environment may affect host resistance and increase susceptibility to infections. Studies have also shown that infections can change the toxicity of pollutants. READ MORE

  5. 5. Finding improved drug strategies for schizophrenia : Preclinical studies on lumateperone and sodium nitroprusside

    Author : Joep Titulaer; Åsa Konradsson-Geuken; Anne-Lie Svensson; Erika Roman; Kent Jardemark; Joshua Beckmann; Uppsala universitet; []
