  • Abbreviated cyclosporine AUCs on Neoral – the search continues! Filler, G.; Mai, Ingrid; Filler, S.; Ehrich, Jochen H. H. // Pediatric Nephrology;1999, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p98 

    Cyclosporine is a powerful immunosuppressant with a narrow therapeutic window and considerable inter- and intrapatient variability. The pre-dose trough concentration (C[sub min] ) is commonly used for therapeutic drug monitoring. With the new microemulsion (Neoral), intrapatient variability was...

    Cyclosporine A (CsA) is the most commonly used drug in organ transplantation. To evaluate exposure the gold standard is area under curve (AUC), but this is expensive and requires many blood samples. For this reason, abbreviated formulae have been developed in adults. Data in children are scanty....

    The clinical course of eight children with minimal change disease (MCNS) who were treated with cyclosporin (CYA) was retrospectively reviewed (group A). Five children had frequently relapsing (FRNS) and three had steroid-resistant (SRNS) primary nephrotic syndrome (PNS). The mean age (±SEM)...

  • Reduced variability of Neoral pharmacokinetic studies in pediatric renal transplantation. Portman, R. J.; Meier-Kriesche, H. U.; Swinford, R.; Brannan, P.; Kahan, B. D. // Pediatric Nephrology;Nov2000, Vol. 15 Issue 1/2, p2 

    In adult renal transplant recipients the Neoral area under the curve (AUC) displays less inter- and intra- individual variability than Sandimmune, and those renal transplant recipients with reduced intra-individual variability of the AUC have a lower risk for chronic rejection. As variability of...

  • Use of rapamycin in a transplant patient who developed cyclosporin neurotoxicity. Hodges, C. B.; Maxwell, Heather; Beattie, T. James; Murphy, Anna V.; Jindal, Rahul M. // Pediatric Nephrology;Oct2001, Vol. 16 Issue 10, p777 

    We describe the case of a paediatric kidney transplant patient who developed cyclosporin neurotoxicity on day 7 post-transplant. Consequently, her cyclosporin was stopped and she was commenced on rapamycin. Over the next 3 weeks her creatinine remained elevated and she had several episodes of...

  • Pharmacokinetics of cyclosporin in children with stable renal transplants. Tam, Joseph C.; Earl, John W.; Willis, Narelle S.; Farquhar, Jill E.; Nath, Christa E.; Knight, J. F.; Hodson, Elisabeth M. // Pediatric Nephrology;Dec2000, Vol. 15 Issue 3/4, p167 

    Fourteen children, aged between 5 and 17 years, with stable renal graft function and stable cyclosporin A (CSA) trough levels (Cmin) were studied. They had been taking CSA 12-hourly since their transplant 1.5-9 years previously, with the average dose of Neoral being 6.4 (range 4.4-8.4) mg/kg per...

  • A limited sampling strategy for the estimation of Neoral AUCs in pediatric patients. Meier-Kriesche, Herwig-Ulf; Bonilla-Felix, Melvin A.; Ferris, Maria E.; Swinford, Rita; Kahan, Barry D.; Brannan, Patricia; Portman, Ronald J. // Pediatric Nephrology;1999, Vol. 13 Issue 9, p742 

    The improved pharmacokinetics of Neoral allows the development of an accurate estimate of the full area under the concentration time curve (AUC) from a limited sampling strategy. As no such strategy has been derived from pharmacokinetic data obtained from children on 12-hourly dosing, and as...

    The article presents abstracts of medical research presented at the 39th and 40th Annual Meetings of the Japanese Society for Pediatric Nephrology in 2004 and 2005. They include: "Therapeutic effects of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) on multidrug-resistant, intractable nephrotic syndrome," "Segment...

    Renal function deterioration is a reason of concern in heart transplantation. Our aim was to evaluate long-term renal function in heart transplant children on cyclosporine (CsA) treatment and to investigate the effect of several variables possibly involved in renal function deterioration....
