Dal dicembre 2019 ad oggi sono stati identificati 12,750,275 casi di Covid-19. Le vittime della pandemia sono attualmente 566,355 secondo i dati dell’Oms. Sebbene la situazione si sia stabilizzata i primi Paesi colpiti, il numero di contagi a livello globale continua a salire, con una media di 100.000 nuovi casi al giorno. Il virus non sembra essere meno pericoloso rispetto

Ribociclib (LEE011, Kisqali ®) is a highly selective small molecule inhibitor of cyclin‐dependent kinases 4 and 6 (CDK4/6), which has been approved for the treatment of advanced or metastatic breast cancer. A human ADME study was conducted in healthy male volunteers following a single oral dose of 600 mg [14C]‐ribociclib. Mass balance, blood and plasma radioactivity, and plasma ribociclib concentrations were

Objectives: To evaluate clinical and financial impact of pharmacist interventions in an ambulatory adult hematology-oncology department. Methods: All cancer patients receiving a first injectable immuno- and/or chemotherapy regimen were included in this prospective study over a one-year period. The clinical impact of pharmacist interventions made by two clinical pharmacists was rated using the Clinical Economic and Organizational tool. Financial impact was calculated through

Cellular therapy for hematologic malignancies is a rapidly evolving field, with new iterations of novel constructs being developed at a rapid pace. Since the initial reports of chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR T cell)success in CD19+ B cell malignancies, multiple clinical trials of CAR T cell therapy directed to CD19 have led to the approval of this therapy by

Background: The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) emerged in late 2019 and spread globally, prompting an international effort to accelerate development of a vaccine. The candidate vaccine mRNA-1273 encodes the stabilized prefusion SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. Methods: We conducted a phase 1, dose-escalation, open-label trial including 45 healthy adults, 18 to 55 years of age, who received two vaccinations, 28

The anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy tisagenlecleucel was evaluated in the global, phase 2 JULIET study in adult patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). We correlated tisagenlecleucel cellular kinetics with clinical/product parameters in 111 patients treated in JULIET. Tisagenlecleucel persistence in responders and nonresponders, respectively, was demonstrated for 554 and 400 days maximum by flow cytometry

The outbreak of SARS-CoV-2-associated pneumonia, a disease called COVID-19, has caused a pandemic worldwide. To investigate the immune responses after infection of SARS-CoV-2 in non-critical patients may help to better understand the disease progression. We collected 334 confirmed COVID-19 cases including 212 still in hospital with nucleic acid test positive on halfway for SARS-CoV-2 and 122 discharged from hospital, compared

Objective: To propose an updated definition of Pharmaceutical Care based on the Capacity-Motivation-Opportunity (CMO) model and on the key elements and optimal activities for its development that guarantee the highest levels of quality and excellence in this professional activity. Method: The consensus was developed by a working group composed of members of the Spanish Society of Hospital Pharmacy and other pharmacists from different

Introduction: The primary objective of this study was to describe the incorporation of the flipped classroom model and use of real-life oncology patients to facilitate student learning of oral oncolytic best safety practices and patient counseling. The secondary objective was to assess the impact of the flipped classroom learning activity on students’ perceived confidence. Methods: This study was a prospective, single center,
