Nonclinical genotoxicity and carcinogenicity profile of apremilast, an oral selective inhibitor of PDE4.

Regul Toxicol Pharmacol 2021 Jul 5;125:104985. Epub 2021 Jul 5.

Amgen Inc., Thousand Oaks, CA, 91320, USA.

Apremilast is an oral, selective small molecule inhibitor of phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4) that has been approved for the treatment of active psoriatic arthritis, moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, and for patients with oral ulcers associated with Behçet's disease. Apremilast modulates the inflammatory cascade in cells by inhibiting PDE4, thus preventing the degradation of cyclic adenosine monophosphate, resulting in the upregulation of interleukin (IL)-10 and the downregulation of proinflammatory cytokines, including IL-23, interferon gamma (IFNγ), and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα). Here, we evaluated the genotoxic and carcinogenic potential of apremilast using Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)-compliant in vitro and in vivo studies. Read More

Vonoprazan versus proton pump inhibitors for postendoscopic submucosal dissection bleeding in the stomach: a multicenter population-based comparative study.

Gastrointest Endosc 2021 Jul 5. Epub 2021 Jul 5.

Department of Gastroenterology, St. Luke's International Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Background And Aims: The effectiveness of vonoprazan relative to that of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) after gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is unclear. Although previous studies used post-ESD ulcer healing as the outcome measure, post-ESD bleeding rate is the most objective and appropriate outcome measure as it has less ascertainment bias. We aimed to compare the post-ESD bleeding rates between vonoprazan and PPIs. Read More

Gastric lymphoma at high risk of perforation successfully managed with chemotherapy alone.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jul 6;14(7). Epub 2021 Jul 6.

Haematology, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust, Norwich, UK.

We report the case of a previously healthy 49-year-old woman who presented with upper gastrointestinal bleeding, which was found at laparotomy to be due to high-grade B cell gastric lymphoma. CT scans showed that this was partially adherent to the spleen, with erosion of the gastric wall and suggested impending perforation. Given the risk of perforation, further surgical intervention (gastrectomy and splenectomy) was considered; however, after multidisciplinary team discussion, we chose to offer chemotherapy and careful inpatient observation instead.
