Halitosis can be described as unpleasant odors emanating from the oral cavity. It is usually associated with decomposition action of bacteria present mainly on the back of the tongue and periodontal pockets, and able to produce volatile sulfur compounds. We conducted a study at the Faculty of Dentistry, Federal University of Juiz de Fora and evaluated the therapeutic effect of two natural extracts, Camellia sinensis (green tea) and resveratrol in the form of oral polymer films, to control halitosis. Fifty volunteers (students of health courses) participated in the research after orientation and signing the informed consent form...

Compounders engaged in making sterile preparations need to employ a quality-assurance system of documented policies and procedures to attempt to reduce the possibility of contamination. The quality-assurance program will be monitored through the facility's quality-control system. Compounders should be aware of the requirements of each state they are licensed in as well as the inspection observations commonly noted in 483s issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Part 1 of this 2-part article discussed the currently evolving regulatory environment and why sterile compounding requires planning and monitoring to deliver quality compounds to patients...

Transdermal testosterone has been used for years to treat patients with low testosterone symptoms. Clinically, we have monitored patients to evaluate results of testosterone absorption via blood serum concentrations. The data on multiple time points to determine trough and peak concentrations is lacking in the literature. In this case study, we demonstrate the absorption of testosterone cream via scrotal delivery. The data suggests that after application therapeutic levels are reached with concentrations of (1204...

Mike Riepl
Homeostasis of the human vaginal microbiome, which consists of the bacteriome (colonizing bacteria) and the mycobiome (resident fungi), is essential to the health of the female reproductive system. Dysbiosis of either microbial community can be caused by a variety of factors ranging from behavioral issues (personal-hygiene practices, the choice of contraceptives, smoking, etc.) to biological variables (the host-microbiome composition, menstruation, the robustness of the host's immune response). Clinicians often consult compounding pharmacistsbabout the formulation and use of customized preparations to treat vaginal diseases and re-establish a healthful vaginal microenvironment when commercially manufactured products have failed or are unavailable...

Radiotherapy and epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors, as important representatives of current chemotherapy, are crucial and irreplaceable treatments of modern oncology. These two types of treatments frequently cause severe dose-dependent dermatologic adverse events that can negatively affect a patient's quality of life and compliance and cause inappropriate dose reductions and even treatment brakes. This article aims to emphasize new scientific data, published in peer reviews, regarding new possibilities to manage these debilitating dermatological adverse events...

Fang Zhao, Vivek S Dave, Mazin Z Mar, Jonathan R Perri
Eslicarbazepine acetate is an anticonvulsant drug with a recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for expanded use in children and adolescents. Currently, eslicarbazepine acetate is only available in the U.S. as 200-mg to 800-mg strength tablets (Aptiom), which are not easy to administer for pediatric patients. This study was initiated to develop an oral suspension formulation for extemporaneous compounding by pharmacists and to generate stability data for storage recommendations. Nine suspension formulations of eslicarbazepine acetate were prepared from Aptiom tablets and commercially available liquid vehicles using the standard mortar/pestle method...

The individual attention devoted to preparing customized medications is the cornerstone of pharmaceutical compounding. Providing that level of care, however, entails exposure to drugs, airborne particulates, and fumes or vapors that can jeopardize the health of pharmacy staff and customers in the store. The responsibility of supplying protection against compounding-related contamination falls to the pharmacy owner, and the selection, use, and maintenance of compounding enclosures are essential to ensuring that safety...

Kyle Mulder, Raphael Dozzi
It is essential that pharmacy staff, store customers, and the environments to which those individuals are exposed be protected from particles dispersed during compounding when powders are handled, incorporated into preparations, or become airborne when vessels that contain them are opened. The primary engineering controls used most often in nonsterile compounding to protect against such contaminants are fume hoods and powder-containment hoods. Those units must routinely undergo certification testing to confirm that they provide the level of protection for which they were designed...
