Terzo Rapporto AIFA sulla sorveglianza dei vaccini COVID-19; Covid e trombosi: qual è il legame? Aderenza terapeutica, Studio Tsunami, al via il ReSpes. E ancora: Agenas, reti oncologiche attivate in 17 Regioni. Questo e molto altro nell'ultima rassegna stampa
Current shortages in COVID-19 vaccine production and distribution have led some experts to suggest untested regimens. Persons who have had COVID-19 are thought to have protective immunity and memory responses for at least 6 months; however, neither recall responses nor ideal vaccine dosing regimens have been studied in those previously infected with SARS-CoV-2. We assessed whether health care workers with previous COVID-19
Background: Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) associated with unique autoimmune side effects that differ from traditional cytotoxic chemotherapy. Pharmacists may play an important role in providing key supportive care measures necessary to aid patients and oncologists through immune-related adverse events (irAEs). This study aims to evaluate the impact of a pharmacist-managed irAE protocol in an oncology clinic.
Methods: This study is a retrospective chart
There is growing interest in using observational data to assess the safety, effectiveness, and cost effectiveness of medical technologies, but operational, technical, and methodological challenges limit its more widespread use. Common data models and federated data networks offer a potential solution to many of these problems.
The open-source Observational and Medical Outcomes Partnerships (OMOP) common data model standardises the structure, format,
To characterize the population pharmacokinetics (popPK) of ribociclib and population pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) relationship between ribociclib and absolute neutrophil count (ANC) were characterized in patients with cancer. PopPK and ANC PK/PD modeling were both conducted in 2 rounds per data availability. Initial models were developed based on data sets from early-phase trials and qualified using external data from the phase III MONALEESA-2
Background: Few small studies have described hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) during COVID-19.
Research question: What patient characteristics in critically ill patients with COVID-19 are associated with HAIs and how do HAIs associate with outcomes in these patients?
Study design and methods: Multicenter retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data including adult patients with severe COVID-19, admitted to 8 Italian hub hospitals from February 20,
Background: Emergence of variants with specific mutations in key epitopes in the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 raises concerns pertinent to mass vaccination campaigns and use of monoclonal antibodies. We aimed to describe the emergence of the B.1.1.7 variant of concern (VOC), including virological characteristics and clinical severity in contemporaneous patients with and without the variant.
Methods: In this cohort study, samples
Importance: Recently, the benefit of adding daratumumab to the proteasome inhibitor-based, 3-drug combination of bortezomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who underwent high-dose melphalan chemotherapy and autologous hemopoietic cell transplant was assessed. Here, we examine the addition of daratumumab to the second-generation proteasome inhibitor-based, 3-drug combination of carfilzomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone.
Objective: To assess the safety
Background: Several cases of unusual thrombotic events and thrombocytopenia have developed after vaccination with the recombinant adenoviral vector encoding the spike protein antigen of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (ChAdOx1 nCov-19, AstraZeneca). More data were needed on the pathogenesis of this unusual clotting disorder.
Methods: We assessed the clinical and laboratory features of 11 patients in Germany and Austria
