    Abstract : Malaria is one of the most abundant parasitic diseases in the world affecting many of the poorest economies. The estimated prevalence is 300 to 700 million clinical episodes each year with up to 3 million deaths. READ MORE

  2. 2. Clinical pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of antimalarial combination therapy

    Author : Sofia Friberg Hietala; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics; antimalarials; artemisinins;

    Abstract : In the face of growing drug resistance, the World Health Organization (WHO) has issued recommendations strongly encouraging the use of combination therapies to combat uncomplicated malaria. Amongst the most effective treatments are those combining an artemisinin derivative with a longer acting component such as amodiaquine, lumefantrine or piperaquine. READ MORE

  3. 3. New Approaches for Levodopa Treatment in Parkinson’s Disease

    Author : Marina Senek; Dag Nyholm; Elisabet I Nielsen; Maral Mouradian; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parkinson’s disease; Pharmacokinetics; Pharmacodynamics; Population modeling; Levodopa; Carbidopa; Entacapone; Microtablets; Intestinal infusion;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease (PD) is characterized by degeneration of dopaminergic cells, which results in dopamine depletion. Levodopa is the most effective symptomatic treatment, however, disease progression along with the unfavorable pharmacokinetics of levodopa makes the disease increasingly difficult to treat with time.

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. 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
