Methods for Measuring Multiple Medication Adherence: A Systematic Review-Report of the ISPOR Medication Adherence and Persistence Special Interest Group.

Value Health 2019 02 25;22(2):139-156. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Mayes College of Healthcare Business and Policy, University of the Sciences, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Background: A broad literature base exists for measuring medication adherence to monotherapeutic regimens, but publications are less extensive for measuring adherence to multiple medications.

Objectives: To identify and characterize the multiple medication adherence (MMA) methods used in the literature.

Methods: A literature search was conducted using PubMed, PsycINFO, the International Pharmaceutical Abstracts, the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature and the Cochrane Library databases on methods used to measure MMA published between January 1973 and May 2015. A two-step screening process was used; all abstracts were screened by pairs of researchers independently, followed by a full-text review identifying the method for calculating MMA. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines were followed to conduct this systematic review. For studies that met the eligibility criteria, general study and adherence-specific characteristics and the number and type of MMA measurement methods were summarized.

Results: The 147 studies that were included originated from 32 countries, in 13 disease states. Of these studies, 26 used proportion of days covered, 23 used medication possession ratio, and 72 used self-reported questionnaires (e.g., the Morisky Scale) to assess MMA. About 50% of the studies included more than one method for measuring MMA, and different variations of medication possession ratio and proportion of days covered were used for measuring MMA.

Conclusions: There appears to be no standardized method to measure MMA. With an increasing prevalence of polypharmacy, more efforts should be directed toward constructing robust measures suitable to evaluate adherence to complex regimens. Future research to understand the validity and reliability of MMA measures and their effects on objective clinical outcomes is also needed.

Cyclodextrin-based nanosponges: a propitious platform for enhancing drug delivery.

Expert Opin Drug Deliv 2014 Jan 4;11(1):111-20. Epub 2013 Dec 4.

University of Mumbai, Bharati Vidyapeeth's College of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutics , Sector 8, C B D Belapur, Navi Mumbai 400 614 , India +91 022 27571122 ; +91 022 27574525 ;

Introduction: Recently, Nanotechnology is receiving considerable acknowledgment due to its potential to combine features that are difficult to achieve by making use of a drug alone. Cyclodextrin-based nanosponges are yet another contemporary approach for highlighting the advancements which could be brought about in a drug delivery system. Statistical analyses have shown that around 40% of currently marketed drugs and about 90% of drugs in their developmental phase encounter solubility-related problems. Cyclodextrin-based nanosponges have the capacity to emerge as a productive approach over conventional cyclodextrins by overcoming the disadvantages associated with the latter.

Areas Covered: This review is intended to give an insight regarding cyclodextrin-based nanosponges such as their physical and chemical properties. In addition, methods of preparation and characterization are discussed along with biocompatibility, and how these nanomeric elements can be exploited in developing effective drug formulations.

Expert Opinion: This emerging technology of cyclodextrin-based nanosponges is expected to provide technical solutions to the formulation arena and to come up with some successful products in the pharmaceutical market. It also has an exciting future in the field of therapeutics wherein it can cater site-directed drug delivery and hence it possesses vibrant opportunities.

Aptamer-dendrimer bioconjugate: a nanotool for therapeutics, diagnosis, and imaging.

Expert Opin Drug Deliv 2012 Oct 16;9(10):1273-88. Epub 2012 Aug 16.

University of Mumbai, Bharati Vidyapeeth's College of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutics, CBD Belapur, Sector-8, Navi-Mumbai-400614, India.

Introduction: Aptamers hold great promise as molecular tool in biomedical applications due to the therapeutic utility exhibited by their target specificity and sensitivity. Although current development of aptamer is hindered by its probable in vivo degradation, inefficient immobilization on probe surface, and generation of low detection signal, bioconjugation with nanomaterials can feasibly solve these problems. Nanostructures such as dendrimers, with multivalency and nonimmunogenicity, bioconjugated with aptamers have opened newer vistas for better pharmaceutical applications of aptamers.

Areas Covered: This review covers brief overview of aptamers and dendrimers, with specific focus on recent progresses of aptamer-dendrimer (Apt-D) bioconjugate in areas of targeted drug delivery, diagnosis, and molecular imaging along with the discussion on the currently available conjugates, using their in vitro and in vivo results.

Expert Opinion: The novel Apt-D bioconjugates have led to advances in targeting cancer cell, have amplified biosensing, and offered in vivo cell imaging. Because of the unique properties and applications, Apt-D bioconjugate propose an exciting future. However, further research in synthesis of new target-specific aptamers and their conjugation with dendrimers is required to establish full potential of Apt-D bioconjugate.
