BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Long-acting injectable antiretrovirals represent a pharmacological alternative to oral formulations and an innovative clinical option to address adherence and reduce drug costs. Clinical studies in children and adolescents are characterised by ethical and logistic barriers complicating the identification of dose optimisation. Physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modelling represents a valuable tool to inform dose finding prior to clinical trials. The objective of this study was to simulate potential dosing strategies for existing long-acting injectable depot formulations of cabotegravir and rilpivirine in children and adolescents (aged 3-18 years) using physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modelling...

BACKGROUND: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been shown to play important roles in a wide range of pathophysiological processes, including cancer progression. Our previous study has shown that AFAP1-AS1 was upregulated and acted as an oncogene in hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the expression and biological functions of lncRNA AFAP1-AS1 in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) remains largely unknown. METHODS: The expression level of AFAP1-AS1 was measured in 56 pairs of human cholangiocarcinoma tumor tissues and corresponding adjacent normal bile duct tissues...

QX-314 has been shown to produce long-acting local anesthesia in vivo in animals; however, translation to humans has been impeded by concerns about toxicity. We investigated whether the newly emerged QX-OH molecule could confer long-lasting anesthesia with a low local toxicity in rats. In rat sciatic nerve block model, QX-OH 25mM produced a longer sensory block than QX-314 25mM (median [25th, 75th percentiles], 5.5 [4.25, 6] h vs. 3 [3, 4] h; P=0.03). QX-OH 35mM produced a longer sensory block than QX-314 35mM (8 [6, 12] h vs...

Alcohol consumption is a major risk factor for the acquisition of HIV/AIDS and is associated with greater disease burden and mortality among those who become HIV-infected. Of the extant pharmacological treatments for alcohol use disorders, naltrexone is recognized as one of the most efficacious, producing robust reductions in alcohol craving and use. Given that treatment with oral naltrexone has been limited by problems with adherence, which are particularly prevalent among individuals with multiple chronic, co-occurring conditions, long-acting formulations may be a promising approach for HIV-infected substance users...

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic, life-threatening illness that affects people of every age and ethnicity. It is a long-suffering pain for those who are affected and must regulate their blood glucose level by frequent subcutaneous injection of insulin every day. Herein, we propose a non-insulin and antidiabetic-drug-free strategy for regulating blood glucose level by a nano-sized "sugar sponge" which is a lectin-bound glycopolymersome capable of regulating glucose due to the dynamic recognition between the lectin and different carbohydrates...

Opioid antagonists, naloxone and naltrexone have long been used in clinical practice and research. In addition to their low selectivity, they easily pass through the blood-brain barrier. Quaternization of the amine group in these molecules, (e.g. methylnaltrexone) results in negligible CNS penetration. In addition, zwitterionic compounds have been reported to have limited CNS access. The current study, for the first time gives report on the synthesis and the in vitro [competition binding, G-protein activation, isolated mouse vas deferens (MVD) and mouse colon assay] pharmacology of the zwitterionic compound, naltrexone-14-O-sulfate...

Ivermectin (IVM) is broad-spectrum compound active against endo and ecto-parasites of clinical relevance in veterinary and human medicine. It is commercially available to use in livestock animals as injectable formulations containing 1% IVM and also as a concentrated (3.15%) long-acting (LA) preparation. The potential risk of the presence of high concentrations of drug residues in muscle tissue at the injection site is therefore a concern. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the IVM residual concentrations at the injection site, in comparison to the untreated contralateral neck (control muscle) and in fat from cattle treated with different preparations...

BACKGROUND: Reducing unplanned pregnancy in Scotland is a key government objective. Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) is a cost-effective way to reduce unintended pregnancy. Abortion and teenage pregnancy rates are highest in the most deprived areas. One possible explanation could be contraceptive prescribing inequality. This study examined the relationship between area deprivation measured by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation and LARC prescription. METHODS: Using Scottish electronic prescribing data from primary care and sexual and reproductive health clinics, this study analysed female Lothian residents with a valid postcode aged 16-49 years who received a contraceptive prescription from 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2014...
