Pharmacokinetic evaluation of cefiderocol for the treatment of multidrug resistant Gram-negative infections.

Expert Opin Drug Metab Toxicol 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

College of Pharmacy, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicaco, IL 60612, USA.

Introduction: Cefiderocol is a siderophore cephalosporin antibiotic and first of its kind approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI) and hospital-acquired and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia (HABP/VABP) in patients 18 years or older caused by susceptible organisms. Cefiderocol's unique mechanism of iron chelation improves Gram-negative membrane penetration as the bacteria's iron uptake mechanism recognizes the chelated iron antibiotic and iron for entry. This also allows for the evasion of cefiderocol from cell entry-related resistance mechanisms. Read More

Concerns About Compounded Bioidentical Menopausal Hormone Therapy.

Cancer J 2022 May-Jun 01;28(3):241-245

From the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Midlife, Health University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, VA.

Abstract: Following the release of the Women's Health Initiative data, women began to use compounded bioidentical hormone therapy (cBHT) in the misguided belief of greater safety and efficacy than traditional hormone therapy. New guidelines recommend government-approved hormone therapy for symptomatic healthy menopausal women younger than 60 years or within 10 years of menopause at the time of initiation. For women requesting bioidentical hormones, those similar to the hormones present before menopause, there are many government-approved hormone therapies with extensive pharmacokinetic, safety, and efficacy data provided with package inserts delineating efficacy, safety, and potential risks.

Tirzepatide - a dual GIP/GLP-1 receptor agonist - a new antidiabetic drug with potential metabolic activity in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Endokrynol Pol 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

Department of Internal Medicine, Diabetology and Nephrology, FMS in Zabrze, SUM 41-800 Zabrze , Poland.

The incretin hormones glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) are responsible for up to 65% of postprandial insulin secretion. Tirzepatide, developed by Eli Lilly, is a dual GIP/GLP-1 receptor agonist in the form of a synthetic linear peptide; its acylation technology allows it to bind to albumin, thus making it possible to dose the drug once a week. This review summarizes the key characteristics and pharmacokinetics of tirzepatide. Read More

Antifungal stewardship in solid organ transplantation.

Transpl Infect Dis 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, Medical University of Graz, Graz, Austria.

Background: Antifungal stewardship (AFS) has emerged as an important component of quality in managing invasive fungal infections (IFI), and cost-benefit calculations suggest regular training in AFS is well worth the effort.

Pharmacological Evaluation of Synthetic Dominant-Negative Peptides Derived from the Competence-Stimulating Peptide of .

ACS Pharmacol Transl Sci 2022 May 20;5(5):299-305. Epub 2022 Apr 20.

Department of Pathobiology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois 61802, United States.

The competence regulon of (pneumococcus) is a quorum-sensing circuitry that regulates the ability of this pathogen to acquire antibiotic resistance or perform serotype switching, leading to vaccine-escape serotypes, via horizontal gene transfer, as well as initiate virulence. Induction of the competence regulon is centered on binding of the competence-stimulating peptide (CSP) to its cognate receptor, ComD. We have recently synthesized multiple dominant-negative peptide analogs capable of inhibiting competence induction and virulence in . Read More
