Pain is the most feared symptom amongst individuals living with cancer. In 15% to 20% of patients, conventional analgesic therapy either fails to relieve pain or induces adverse effects. Intrathecal drug delivery systems may present an effective alternative for pain management. The Cancerology Center Paul Papin protocol includes an admixture of morphine, ropivacaine, and ziconotide in intrathecal preparations. These drugs are administered by a fully implantable or an external pump. Syringes or polyolefin infusion bags are prepared for refill just before use...

Spironolactone (Aldactone) is a potassium-sparing diuretic used to treat hypertension and heart failure and may also be used to treat edema resulting from kidney disease, low potassium levels, or excess aldosterone. No commercial liquid dosage form of spironolactone exists. An extemporaneously compounded suspension from pure drug powder or commercial tablets would provide an alternative option to meet unique patient needs. The purpose of this study was to determine the physicochemical stability of spironolactone in the PCCA base SuspendIt...

Failure of first line and subsequent Helicobacter pylori therapy is a significant problem, as alternate treatments are cumbersome and difficult to access. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a compounded levofloxacin triple therapy in clinical practice as a second or third-line salvage regimen for Helicobacter pylori. Patients referred after first or subsequent treatment failures were prescribed compounded levofloxacin 500 mg, amoxicillin 1 g, and esomeprazole 40 mg, all twice daily for 10 days...

Budesonide is a corticosteroid that has been shown effective in the treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis, but there are currently no commercial medicines to treat this chronic allergic/immune condition, despite its prevalence in the U.S. Therefore, pharmaceutical compounding is the alternative choice to meet the therapeutic need of eosinophilic esophagitis patients. Two budesonide mucoadhesive oral suspensions (1 mg/10 mL and 2 mg/10 mL) were developed using the compounding vehicle MucoLox, a proprietary mucoadhesive polymer blend that promotes mucosal adhesion...

Winnie Choo
The discovery of beta-adrenergic blocker effects on infantile hemangiomas has affected the choice of treatment in recent years. Oral propranolol is effective in treating infantile hemangiomas, but the risk of systemic side effects remains a concern. Data from literature review reported positive clinical outcomes with no major adverse effects observed in children using topical beta-blocker such as timolol maleate. Topical application of timolol eye drop has been mentioned in few studies, most of which reported that the solution cannot stay on the site of application due to its fluidity...

Richard H Dilzer
This article describes the factors to consider, as well as the process of proper component selection, for use in preparing compounded sterile preparations. Special emphasis is placed on individual chemical factors that may impact a preparation's accuracy and potency. Values reported in a typical certificate of analysis are discussed, including methods of identifying any required adjustments to a master formulation or compounding record during the compounding of sterile preparations. Proper screening of the certificate of analysis, the Safety Data Sheet, procedural documentation, and the filing of all certificates of conformance are crucial to the operation of a sterile compounding facility...

On July 1, 2018, United States Pharmacopeia <800> takes effect in those states that adopt it, and the discussion within this article may be applicable to those states that develop their own standards. United States Pharmacopeia <800> changes requirements for storage and compounding of hazardous drugs. The new requirements have important implications for air management and ventilation in some pharmacies. This article discusses how United States Pharmacopeia <800> compares to United States Pharmacopeia <797>, how the changes impact room ventilation and pressurization requirements, and how high-performance airflow control systems that ensure compliance and safety are impacted...

This study evaluated the stability of the antimalarial and anti-rheumatic drug hydroxychloroquine sulfate in two commercially available suspension vehicles, Oral Mix and Oral Mix SF (Medisca Pharmaceutique Inc.). Hydroxychloroquine sulfate (25 mg/mL) suspension was prepared, packaged in amber 50-mL polyethylene terephthalate bottles and amber 3-mL syringes, and stored at room temperature or at 4°C. Samples were collected and analyzed over a 16-week period by high-performance liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection at 340 nm...

Warfarin is still the most prescribed oral anticoagulant prescribed for the prophylaxis and treatment of thromboembolic events such as stroke, heart attack, embolism, and deep vein thrombosis. It is administered orally in the form of sodium salt as a tablet with a typical strength of 5 mg. The molecule has a narrow therapeutic index. As a consequence, the dosage must be individualized for each patient based on the patient response in terms of time of coagulation. Thus, warfarin represents an example of a drug whose dose needs to be tailored to individual requirements that are often changing and, therefore, constitute a paramount illustration of personalized medicine...

The objective of this study was to compare serum concentrations of transdermal fluoxetine compounded in Lipoderm base versus commercially available oral fluoxetine tablets. Sixteen clinically healthy, client-owned cats that were at least one year of age were enrolled. Cats weighed between three and seven kilograms, had no comorbidities, and were behavior medication naïve. Cats were recruited from January 2016 through April 2016. Eight cats were assigned to each medication group based on owner preference. The cats received either oral (1 mg/kg) or transdermal (5 mg/kg; maximum 25 mg daily) fluoxetine compounded in a transdermal base (PCCA Lipoderm), administered daily for 60 days...

Nat Jones, Maria Carvalho, Andrea Branvold-Herr
Skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema negatively impact the patient's quality of life; the primary goal of topical treatments is to minimize the disease-specific symptoms. This case report discusses the management of two refractory psoriasis skin lesions in an adult male using a topical compounded formula. The psoriasis symptoms were assessed quantitatively using two validated research instruments, the Psoriasis Symptom Inventory, and an adapted Numeric Rating Scale. A qualitative assessment was also performed by evaluating the digital photographs taken by the patient during the course of treatment...
