  1. 1. Pharmacokinetic drug-drug interactions in the management of malaria, HIV and tuberculosis

    Author : Doaa Elsherbiny; Ulrika Simonsson; Mats Karlsson; Lars Ståhle; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Pharmacokinetics Pharmacotherapy; Pharmacokinetics; Drug-drug interactions; Cytochrome P-450; Artemisinin antimalarials; Nevirapine; Lopinavir; Rifampicin; NONMEM; Farmakokinetik Farmakoterapi;

    Abstract : Malaria, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and tuberculosis (TB) are global health problems having their worst situation in sub-Saharan Africa. Consequently, concomitant use of antimalarial, antiretroviral and antitubercular drugs may be needed, resulting in a potential risk of drug-drug interactions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Drug Analysis : Bioanalytical Method Development and Validation

    Author : Mikaela Malm; Yngve Bergqvist; Anders Colmsjö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Analytical chemistry; African trypanosomiasis; calibration model; chiral chromatography; dried blood spots; eflornithine; evaporative light-scattering detection; HIV AIDS; lamivudine; liquid chromatography; malaria; nevirapine; piperaquine; pneumonia; solid-phase extraction; sulfadoxine; sulfamethoxazole; validation; zidovudine; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes bioanalytical methods for drug determination in biological matrixes, with drugs in focus used against diseases largely affecting low-income countries. Solid-phase extraction is used for sample cleanup, and processed samples are analyzed by liquid chromatography. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development and Validation of Bioanalytical Methods : Application to Melatonin and Selected Anti-Infective Drugs

    Author : Susanne Römsing; Yngve Bergqvist; Åsa Emmer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; african trypanosomiasis; melatonin; malaria; antiretroviral drugs; lumefantrine; tafenoquine; lamivudine; nevirapine; zidovudine; sampling paper; dried blood spots; capillary blood; antimalarial drugs; solid-phase extraction; liquid chromatography; Chemistry; Kemi; Analytical Chemistry; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes bioanalytical methods for measuring melatonin and some anti-infective drugs in biological fluids. Solid-phase extraction (SPE) or protein precipitation was used for enrichment and purification of the analytes and Liquid Chromatography (LC) was used to analyze the samples. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pharmacometric Models to Improve Treatment of Tuberculosis

    Author : Elin M Svensson; Mats O Karlsson; Maria C Kjellsson; Ulrika S H Simonsson; N. L’Ntshotsholé (Shasha) Jumbe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics; population approach; nonlinear mixed-effects models; multidrug-resistant tuberculosis; bedaquiline; antiretroviral; drug-drug interactions; time-to-event; albumin; Klinisk farmakologi; Clinical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : Tuberculosis (TB) is the world’s most deadly infectious disease and causes enormous public health problems. The comorbidity with HIV and the rise of multidrug-resistant TB strains impede successful therapy through drug-drug interactions and the lack of efficient second-line treatments. READ MORE

  5. 5. Targeting HIV-1 entry and reverse transcription by vaccination

    Author : Bartek Zuber; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; HIV-1; DNA vaccination; coreceptor; CCR5; RT; drug resistance; CpG; pseudovirus;

    Abstract : Human immunodeficiency virus type I (HIV-1) is a complex retrovirus, which uses the CD4 receptor and chemokine receptors to infect its target cells. The chemokine receptor CCR5 is essential for primary HIV-1 infection. The hallmark of retroviruses is the enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT), which transcribes the virus genome from RNA to DNA.
