Risk of ventricular arrhythmias associated with nonsedating antihistamine drugs. (1/48)

AIMS: To quantify and compare the incidence of ventricular arrhythniias associated with the use of five nonsedating antihistamines: acrivastine, astemizole, cetirizine, loratadine and terfenadine. The effects of age, sex, dose, duration of treatment, and the interaction with P450 inhibitor drugs were also examined. METHODS: We carried out a cohort study with a nested case-control analysis using the UK-based General Practice Research database (GPRD). The study cohort included persons aged less than 80 years old who received their first prescription for any of the five study drugs between January 1, 1992 and September 30, 1996. We estimated relative risks and 95% confidence intervals of idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias with current use of antihistamines as compared with non use. RESULTS: The study cohort included 197425 persons who received 513012 prescriptions. Over the study period 18 valid cases of idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias were detected. Nine occurred during the current use of any antihistamine, resulting in a crude incidence of 1.9 per 10000 person-years (95%CI: 1.0-3.6) and a relative risk of 4.2 (95%CI: 1.5-11.8) as compared with non use. Astemizole presented the highest relative risk (RR= 19.0; 95%CI: 4.8-76.0) of all study drugs, while terfenadine (RR=2.1; 95%CI:0.5-8.5) was in the range of other nonsedating antihistamines. Older age was associated with a greater risk of ventricular arrhythmias (RR=7.4; 95%CI: 2.6-21.4) and seemed to increase the effect of antihistamines (RR=6.4; 95%CI: 1.7-24.8). The proportions of high dose terfenadine and the concomitant use with P450 inhibitors among current users of terfenadine were 2.7% and 3.4%, respectively over the study period with no single case of ventricular arrhythmias occurring in the presence of these two risk factors. CONCLUSIONS: The use of nonsedating antihistamines increases the risk of ventricular arrhythmias by a factor of four in the general population. Yet, the absolute effect is quite low requiring 57000 prescriptions, or 5300 person-years of use for one case to occur. The risk associated with terfenadine was no different from that with other nonsedating antihistamines.  (+info)

Correction of defective protein trafficking of a mutant HERG potassium channel in human long QT syndrome. Pharmacological and temperature effects. (2/48)

The chromosome 7-linked form of congenital long QT syndrome (LQT2) is caused by mutations in the human ether-a-go-go-related gene (HERG) that encodes the rapidly activating delayed rectifier potassium channel. One mechanism for the loss of normal channel function in LQT2 is defective protein trafficking, which results in the failure of the channel protein to reach the plasma membrane. Here we show that the N470D LQT2 mutant protein is trafficking-deficient when expressed at 37 degrees C in HEK293 cells, whereas at 27 degrees C its trafficking to the plasma membrane and channel function are markedly improved. We further show that the antiarrhythmic drug E-4031, which selectively blocks HERG channels, also corrects defective protein trafficking of the N470D mutant and can restore the generation of HERG current. Similar findings were obtained with the drugs astemizole and cisapride, as well as with high concentrations of glycerol. The effect of E-4031 on HERG protein trafficking was concentration-dependent and required low drug concentrations (saturation present at 5 microM), developed rapidly with drug exposure, and occurred post-translationally. These findings suggest that protein misfolding leading to defective trafficking of some HERG LQT mutations may be corrected by specific pharmacological strategies.  (+info)

Redox state dependency of HERGS631C channel pharmacology: relation to C-type inactivation. (3/48)

The S631C mutation in human ether-a-go-go-related gene (HERG) channels has previously been reported to disrupt C-type inactivation and ion-selectivity when Cys-631 is in the oxidized state. In this study, we report the relation between pharmacology and C-type inactivation for HERGS631C channels. We demonstrate that HERGS631C in its reduced state is fully blocked by 1 microM astemizole, terfenadine and dofetilide, similar to wild-type HERG channels. In contrast, oxidized HERGS631C is insensitive for these blockers. Our results suggest that an interaction with HERG channels in the inactivated state might be a common mechanism to a variety of drugs known to block HERG channels with high affinity.  (+info)

Pharmacological blockade of ERG K(+) channels and Ca(2+) influx through store-operated channels exerts opposite effects on intracellular Ca(2+) oscillations in pituitary GH(3) cells. (4/48)

In the present study, the effects on intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) oscillations of the blockade of ether-a-go-go-related gene (ERG) K(+) channels and of Ca(2+) influx through store-operated channels (SOC) activated by [Ca(2+)](i) store depletion have been studied in GH(3) cells by means of a combination of single-cell fura-2 microfluorimetry and whole-cell mode of the patch-clamp technique. Nanomolar concentrations (1-30 nM) of the piperidinic second-generation antihistamines terfenadine and astemizole and of the class III antiarrhythmic methanesulfonanilide dofetilide, by blocking ERG K(+) channels, increased the frequency and the amplitude of [Ca(2+)](i) oscillations in resting oscillating GH(3) cells. These compounds also induced the appearance of an oscillatory pattern of [Ca(2+)](i) in a subpopulation of nonoscillating GH(3) cells. The effects of ERG K(+) channel blockade on [Ca(2+)](i) oscillations appeared to be due to the activation of L-type Ca(2+) channels, because they were prevented by 300 nM nimodipine. By contrast, the piperazinic second-generation antihistamine cetirizine (0.01-30 microM), which served as a negative control, failed to affect ERG K(+) channels and did not interfere with [Ca(2+)](i) oscillations in GH(3) cells. Interestingly, micromolar concentrations of terfenadine and astemizole (0.3-30 microM), but not of dofetilide (10-100 microM), produced an inhibition of the spontaneous oscillatory pattern of [Ca(2+)](i) changes. This effect was possibly related to an inhibition of SOC, because these compounds inhibited the increase of [Ca(2+)](i) achieved by extracellular calcium reintroduction after intracellular calcium store depletion with the sarcoplasmic or endoplasmic reticulum calcium ATPase pump inhibitor thapsigargin (10 microM) in an extracellular calcium-free medium. The same inhibitory effect on [Ca(2+)](i) oscillations and SOC was observed with the first-generation antihistamine hydroxyzine (1-30 microM), the more hydrophobic metabolic precursor of cetirizine. Collectively, the results of the present study obtained with compounds that interfere in a different concentration range with ERG K(+) channels or SOC suggest that 1) ERG K(+) channels play a relevant role in controlling the oscillatory pattern of [Ca(2+)](i) in resting GH(3) cells and 2) the inhibition of SOC might induce an opposite effect, i.e., an inhibition of [Ca(2+)](i) oscillations.  (+info)

Inhibition of HERG1 K(+) channels by the novel second-generation antihistamine mizolastine. (5/48)

1. Ventricular arrhythmias are rare but life-threatening side effects of therapy with the second-generation H(1) receptor antagonists terfenadine and astemizole. Blockade of the K(+) channels encoded by the Human Ether-a-go-go-Related Gene 1 (HERG1) K(+) channels, which is the molecular basis of the cardiac repolarizing current I(Kr), by prolonging cardiac repolarization, has been recognized as the mechanism underlying the cardiac toxicity of these compounds. 2. In the present study, the potential blocking ability of the novel second-generation H(1) receptor antagonist mizolastine of the HERG1 K(+) channels heterologously expressed in Xenopus oocytes and in HEK 293 cells or constitutively present in SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells has been examined and compared to that of astemizole. 3. Mizolastine blocked HERG1 K(+) channels expressed in Xenopus oocytes with an estimated IC(50) of 3.4 microM. Mizolastine blockade was characterized by a fast dissociation rate when compared to that of astemizole; when fitted to a monoexponential function, the time constants for drug dissociation from the K(+) channel were 72.4+/-11.9 s for 3 microM mizolastine, and 1361+/-306 s for 1 microM astemizole. 4. In human embryonic kidney 293 cells (HEK 293 cells) stably transfected with HERG1 cDNA, extracellular application of mizolastine exerted a dose-related inhibitory action on I(HERG1), with an IC(50) of 350+/-76 nM. Furthermore, mizolastine dose-dependently inhibited HERG1 K(+) channels constitutively expressed in SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma clonal cells. 5. The results of the present study suggest that the novel second-generation H(1) receptor antagonist mizolastine, in concentrations higher than those achieved in vivo during standard therapy, is able to block in some degree both constitutively and heterologously expressed HERG1 K(+) channels, and confirm the heterogeneity of molecules belonging to this therapeutical class with respect to their HERG1-inhibitory action.  (+info)

Acute canine model for drug-induced Torsades de Pointes in drug safety evaluation-influences of anesthesia and validation with quinidine and astemizole. (6/48)

An acute in vivo model for drug-induced torsades de pointes (TdP) for use in safety evaluation of drugs was developed using dogs with acute complete atrioventricular (AV) block. In order to study the effects of anesthetic agents on the inducibility of TdP, arrhythmias were induced by programmed electrical stimulation (PES) before and after cumulative intravenous administration of quinidine under anesthesia with sodium pentobarbital, halothane, or isoflurane. Both prolongation of the QTc and the incidence of TdP were greatest in dogs anesthetized with halothane and were smallest in those given pentobarbital, suggesting that halothane is the most suitable anesthetic for this TdP model. To further validate this model, astemizole was administered intravenously to other dogs under halothane anesthesia. Astemizole at 0.3 mg/kg caused slight prolongation of the QT interval but did not induce any arrhythmias. At 1 mg/kg, however, TdP were induced in 5 of 10 animals and in an additional 2 animals at 3 mg/kg. Single and multiple ectopic beats preceded the induction of TdP, and the ectopic beats were observed in a dose-dependent manner. The plasma concentrations of quinidine in dogs with TdP were equivalent to or less than quinidine levels in humans with TdP, while those of astemizole were higher in dogs. In conclusion, this acute canine model of TdP with halothane anesthesia, complete AV block, PES, and simultaneous measurements of plasma drug concentration would be valuable for assessing the risk of drugs, especially I(Kr) blockers, to induce TdP in humans.  (+info)

Involvement of multiple human cytochromes P450 in the liver microsomal metabolism of astemizole and a comparison with terfenadine. (7/48)

AIMS: The aims of the present study were to investigate the metabolism of astemizole in human liver microsomes, to assess possible pharmacokinetic drug-interactions with astemizole and to compare its metabolism with terfenadine, a typical H1 receptor antagonist known to be metabolized predominantly by CYP3A4. METHODS: Astemizole or terfenadine were incubated with human liver microsomes or recombinant cytochromes P450 in the absence or presence of chemical inhibitors and antibodies. RESULTS: Troleandomycin, a CYP3A4 inhibitor, markedly reduced the oxidation of terfenadine (26% of controls) in human liver microsomes, but showed only a marginal inhibition on the oxidation of astemizole (81% of controls). Three metabolites of astemizole were detected in a liver microsomal system, i.e. desmethylastemizole (DES-AST), 6-hydroxyastemizole (6OH-AST) and norastemizole (NOR-AST) at the ratio of 7.4 : 2.8 : 1. Experiments with recombinant P450s and antibodies indicate a negligible role for CYP3A4 on the main metabolic route of astemizole, i.e. formation of DES-AST, although CYP3A4 may mediate the relatively minor metabolic routes to 6OH-AST and NOR-AST. Recombinant CYP2D6 catalysed the formation of 6OH-AST and DES-AST. Studies with human liver microsomes, however, suggest a major role for a mono P450 in DES-AST formation. CONCLUSIONS: In contrast to terfenadine, a minor role for CYP3A4 and involvement of multiple P450 isozymes are suggested in the metabolism of astemizole. These differences in P450 isozymes involved in the metabolism of astemizole and terfenadine may associate with distinct pharmacokinetic influences observed with coadministration of drugs metabolized by CYP3A4.  (+info)

The binding site for channel blockers that rescue misprocessed human long QT syndrome type 2 ether-a-gogo-related gene (HERG) mutations. (8/48)

Mutations in the human ether-a-gogo-related gene (HERG) K(+) channel gene cause chromosome 7-linked long QT syndrome type 2 (LQT2), which is characterized by a prolonged QT interval in the electrocardiogram and an increased susceptibility to life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias. LQT2 mutations produce loss-of-function phenotypes and reduce I(Kr) currents either by the heteromeric assembly of non- or malfunctioning channel subunits with wild type subunits at the cell surface or by retention of misprocessed mutant HERG channels in the endoplasmic reticulum. Misprocessed mutations often encode for channel proteins that are functional upon incorporation into the plasma membrane. As a result the pharmacological correction of folding defects and restoration of protein function are of considerable interest. Here we report that the trafficking-deficient pore mutation HERG G601S was rescued by a series of HERG channel blockers that increased cell surface expression. Rescue by these pharmacological chaperones varied directly with their blocking potency. We used structure-activity relationships and site-directed mutagenesis to define the binding site of the pharmacological chaperones. We found that binding occurred in the inner cavity and correlated with hydrophobicity and cationic charge. Rescue was domain-restricted because the trafficking of two misprocessed mutations in the C terminus, HERG F805C and HERG R823W, was not restored by channel blockers. Our findings represent a first step toward the design of pharmacological chaperones that will rescue HERG K(+) channels without block.  (+info)

Vi har undersøgt antihistaminer og fokuseret på deres potentiale som anti-cancer stoffer i kemoresistente brystkræftceller. To brystkræft cellelinjer MDA-MB-231 og MCF-7 samt deres docetaxel-resistente udgaver blev brugt som modelsystem i dette studie. Det blev fundet, at opregulering af MDR1 udover at medføre docetaxel-resistens også gjorde cellerne krydsresistente overfor kemoterapien doxorubicin. Derudover viste vi, at de tre antihistaminer, astemizole, loratadine og ebastine, var i stand til at genskabe følsomheden overfor docetaxel og doxorubicin i resistente MDA-MB-231 celler og i svagere grad i resistente MCF-7 celler. Astemizole, loratadine og ebastine var i stand til at inhibere MDR1 aktivitet i resistente MDA-MB-231 celler i varierende grad, hvilket muligvis spiller en rolle for deres evne til at genskabe følsomheden overfor kemoterapi..

This report is the first to detail the effects of clobutinol, a commonly used antitussive drug, on the HERG cardiac K+ channel. The rhythmic incident correlated to clobutinol in-take in the proband revealed the potential effects of the drug and instigated the present study, which also resulted in the identification of a novel HERG mutation responsible for LQT2.. Drug-Induced Action Potential Prolongation. We found that clobutinol displays an IC50 of ≈2 μM on HERG. As illustrated by computer modeling, clobutinol would induce only mild modifications in the ventricular action potential duration of unaffected individuals. The effects of clobutinol displayed a positive voltage dependence, suggesting that the molecule interacts with an activated state of the HERG channel. Drugs that block HERG current, are often associated with QT prolongation and development of the ventricular arrhythmia known as torsades de pointes. Among them are terfenadine, astemizole, and cisapride. Published IC50 values ...

Here a primary cardiac cell line was examined for its potential use to screen for cardiac metabolism-related liabilities. These ventricular cells are derived from adult humans, which is important considering the interspecies differences in CYP2J activity previously reported (Ma et al., 2004; Yamasaki et al., 2004; Aiba et al., 2006; Elshenawy et al., 2013). Further, much of the drug-induced cardiotoxicity can be attributed to ventricular tissue. The P450 mRNA expression profile was similar to human cardiac ventricular tissue, with CYP2J2 by far the dominant isoform. The ability of the cells to metabolize CYP2J2 substrates astemizole and terfenadine was also established. Various compounds most notably danazol and ketoconazole readily inhibited CYP2J2 activity. However, CYP2J2 mRNA were mostly unchanged in the presence of potential inducers.. Others have shown the dominant presence of CYP2J2 in cardiac tissue, using immunoblotting or quantitative real-time PCR (Wu et al., 1996; Michaud et al., ...
The hERG potassium channel is essential for repolarization of the cardiac action potential. Due to this vital function, absence of unintended and potentially life-threatening interactions with hERG is required for approval of new drugs. The structure of hERG is therefore one of the most sought-after. To provide purified hERG for structural studies and new hERG biomimetic platforms for detection of undesirable interactions, we have developed a hERG expression platform generating unprecedented amounts of purified and functional hERG channels. Full-length hERG, with or without a C-terminally fused green fluorescent protein (GFP) His 8-tag was produced from a codon-optimized hERG cDNA in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Both constructs complemented the high potassium requirement of a knock-out Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain, indicating correct tetramer assembly in vivo. Functionality was further demonstrated by Astemizole binding to membrane embedded hERG-GFP-His

The major finding of these experiments is that terfenadine and astemizole significantly inhibited the IK1 in both guinea pig and rat ventricular myocytes. In the rat myocytes, both drugs also blocked a component of the Ito. Terfenadine, but not astemizole, additionally blocked IK to a small extent. The results of our experiments with terfenadine are consistent with previous studies showing the suppressive effect of terfenadine on the IK in cat and human myocytes.27 28 In cat ventricular myocytes, the IK-associated tail currents on deactivation of the channel were prominent and were markedly suppressed by terfenadine.27 In guinea pig ventricular myocytes, we did not find a similarly large suppression of IK tail current. However, the amplitude of the tail current appears to be somewhat species dependent, ie, quite large in cat, shark, and frog ventricular myocytes and relatively small in human and rodent myocytes.27 28 29 30 31 32 In addition, since deactivation of IK at −40 mV may activate a ...

Now that the cellular infiltrates in both acute and chronic disease are better characterised, there are significant implications for treatment of allergic eye disease (for review see Abelson and Schaefer73).. Topical therapy is the preferred treatment in mild diseases of SAC and PAC. Since neither are life threatening, or even sight threatening, experimental systemic treatments are not indicated in the way they may be in more serious ocular allergic disease such as AKC. Powerful anti-CD4+ T cell agents, such as cyclosporin, should be kept for severely affected cases with keratopathy. In the T cell driven processes of VKC and AKC27 28 specific anti-TH-2 treatment of VKC, rather than blanket anti-T cell therapy, may be a future option.. In SAC and PAC, where mast cells and histamine release are involved in the disease pathogenesis, both topical and systemic therapies have been tried. Oral histamine H1 receptor antagonists (antihistamines) such as astemizole, terfanidine, and loratidine have been ...

We investigated the involvement of serine protease and proteinase-activated receptor 2 (PAR2) in dermatophyte-induced itch in mice. An intradermal injection of an extract of the dermatophyte Arthroderma vanbreuseghemii (ADV) induced hind-paw scratching, an itch-related behavior. ADV extract-induced scratching was inhibited by the opioid receptor antagonists naloxone and naltrexone, the serine protease inhibitor nafamostat mesylate, and the PAR2 receptor antagonist FSLLRY-NH2. ADV extract-induced scratching was not inhibited by the H1 histamine receptor antagonist terfenadine or by mast cell deficiency. Heat pretreatment of the ADV extract markedly reduced the scratch-inducing and serine protease activities. Proteolytic cleavage within the extracellular N terminus of the PAR2 receptor exposes a sequence that serves as a tethered ligand for the receptor. The ADV extract as well as tryptase and trypsin cleaved a synthetic N-terminal peptide of the PAR2 receptor. The present results suggest that ...

Large complex polygons were generated by shortening effect ascribing the differences in APDs with numerous points lying distant from the identity type of the Poincar plot. Moreover, while 0. 01 and 0. 1 mM terfenadine did not somewhat increase STV during 0. 5 Hz, higher levels induced a decrease that became significant at 10 mM. Additionally, throughout the transition towards the steady state reduction in APD in Ivacaftor solubility LVMMs, terfenadine induced a marked upsurge in temporal BVR at 1 Hz. Figure 2A shows that before the shortening effect of 1 mM terfenadine, the progression towards the plateau phase of the AP, although not APD, was affected. Even though between 198 and records 170, the best shift of the development phase became more pronounced, and the plateau phase was depressed, APD wasnt afflicted, and terfenadine caused the loss in AP dome. During the transition to the steady-state decline in APD, large variations in effective APDs were seen. Four out-of 10 myocytes showed this ...
best methods of treatment of allergic rhinitis, that is the most usual, is the usage of classic antihistaminic drugs [such asChlorpheniramine], but their side effects, specially somnolence and malaise, made a few patients to discontinue such treatment.

In the United States, Seldane was brought to market in 1985 as the first nonsedating antihistamine for the treatment of allergic rhinitis.[1][4] In June 1990, evidence of serious ventricular arrhythmias among those taking Seldane prompted the FDA to issue a report on the risk factors associated with concomitant use of the drug with macrolide antibiotics and ketoconazole.[1] Two months later, the FDA required the manufacturer to send a letter to all physicians, alerting them to the problem; in July 1992, the existing precautions were elevated to a black box warning[1] and the issue attracted mass media attention in reports that people with liver disease or who took ketoconazole, an antifungal agent, or the antibiotic erythromycin, could suffer cardiac arrhythmia if they also took Seldane.[4] In January 1997, the same month when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had earlier approved a generic version of Seldane made by IVAX Corporation of Miami, the FDA recommended terfenadine-containing ...

Objectives: To quantify the prognostic utility of QRS and QTc interval prolongation in patients presenting with acute destabilised heart failure (ADHF) to the emergency department (ED).. Design: Prospective cohort study among patients enrolled in the B-Type Natriuretic Peptide for Acute Shortness of Breath Evaluation (BASEL) study. QRS and QT intervals were measured in 173 consecutive patients with ADHF. QT interval was corrected using the Bazett formula. The primary end point was all-cause mortality during the 720-day follow-up.. Results: QRS interval was prolonged (⩾120 ms) in 27% of patients, and QTc interval was prolonged (⩾440 ms) in 72% of patients. Baseline demographic and clinical characteristics were comparable in patients with normal and prolonged QRS or QTc intervals. A total of 78 patients died during follow-up. Interestingly, the 720-day mortality was similar in patients with prolonged and normal QTc (44% vs 42%, p = 0.546), but was significantly higher in patients with ...

In the present study, we have shown that both cetirizine 10 mg and chlorpheniramine 4 mg increased P300 latencies significantly compared with baseline. Only been a few studies have examined the effect of antihistamines on P300 latency in children.24,25 None, to our knowledge, has studied the sedative effect of cetirizine in atopic children using P300 latency. Compared with many other objective tests of CNS function, it has the advantages of being relatively simple; rapid; and less affected by practice, motivation, or boredom.20,21 It is an objective measure that is suitable for use in children and that has been used extensively to study the cognitive effects of antihistamines and other medication.21 Prolongation of P300 latency is taken as an index of impaired cognitive function.6. The inclusion of chlorpheniramine as the positive control in our study was not to draw direct comparisons with cetirizine but to ensure sensitivity.6 Chlorpheniramine 4 mg has been shown to increase P300 latency ...
Common triggers of IAR symptoms include both outdoor (ie, pollen, mold, pollutants) and indoor (ie, cats, dust mites, mold, tobacco smoke) allergens. PBs symptoms are likely related to being outdoors; it is prudent to recommend he confirm local pollen counts before proceeding outdoors and avoid gardening when pollen counts are the highest, in the early morning and evening hours. To alleviate his symptoms, an oral antihistamine would be the preferred medication for self-treatment. In this case, a nonsedating antihistamine, such as loratadine or cetirizine, could be recommended as initial therapy, as these agents are less likely to cause side effects compared with first-generation antihistamines. You could recommend loratadine 10 mg daily while symptoms persist. â ...
Just a note on the mechanism of brain fog. Diphenhydramine is a non-selective histamine receptor antagonist - it blocks histamine receptors. Newer second-generation antihistamines, in contrast to diphenhydramine, do not easily pass the blood brain barrier (BBB). The BBB is created by astrocyte (support cells in the brain that are not actually neurons, or brain cells that can fire in the same way that neurons can) foot processes that line the blood vessels of the brain, enabling selectivity of what actually enters the tissue of the brain. After crossing the BBB, diphenhydramine blocks histamine receptors, most importantly those in the cerebral cortex. Histamine is actually produced in the hypothalamus and released in the cortex as one of the many overlapping systems that maintains wakefulness. So, blockade of these receptors makes you feel sleepy ...
Background The mammalian receptor protein tyrosine kinase (RTK), Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK), was first described as the merchandise from the t(2;5)chromosomal translocation within non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

TY - JOUR. T1 - A double-blind evaluation of skin test suppression produced by two doses of terfenadine. AU - Bantz, Eric W.. AU - Dolen, William K.. AU - Nelson, Harold S.. PY - 1987/1/1. Y1 - 1987/1/1. N2 - For some patients, terfenadine, in the currently recommended dose of 60 mg twice daily (bid), may be only modestly effective in the treatment of allergic rhinitis. In a double-blind placebo-controlled crossover study of 12 patients, a larger dose (300 mg bid) was evaluated for its suppression of titrated skin tests to histamine and compound 48/80 to determine whether this regimen might result in greater suppression while it maintained the freedom from side effects of the presently recommended dose. In seven patients, skin test suppression by these two doses of terfenadine, each administered for 3 days, was compared to that produced in an earlier study by 3 days of treatment with chlorpheniramine (8 mg three times a day). The 300 mg bid terfenadine regimen produced significantly greater skin ...
Uremic Pruritis. (Hemodial Int. 2005 Apr;9(2):180-8.. Systemic medical treatment The list of systemic medications reported to be beneficial in patients with uremic pruritus is a long one and includes antihistamine drugs,66 activated carbon,41 cholestyramine,42 nicergoline,43 opioid antagonists,44,67,68 a leukotriene inhibitor,69 erythropoietin,70 heparin,71 lidocaine,72 thalidomide,73 and fatty acids.74,75 Antihistamine drugs are frequently prescribed but the response is generally disappointing.31 Evidence-based information in this regard is scanty.66 A beneficial effect of ketotifen was reported in five patients with uremic pruritis, purportedly because of the ability of this drug to stabilize mast cell membranes.76 Activated carbon, which would possibly act by binding putative pruritogens in the intestinal lumen, was evaluated in a crossover double-blind placebo-controlled study, in which 20 patients were enrolled and treated with 6 g/day for eight weeks. Dropout rate was high and only 11 ...
Another large PBM, Express Scripts, also reports on the growing utilization of step therapy. According to the companys 2004 Drug Trend Report, from December 2002 to January 2005, the number of members enrolled in a plan with at least one step-therapy program nearly tripled, going from 4.5 million to 13.2 million. Therapeutic classes are referred to as step-therapy modules. Each module focuses on utilization in a single therapy class, such as antihypertensive drugs, or in a subclass, such as nonsedating antihistamines. The average number of step-therapy modules per Express Scripts client using step-therapy programs increased from 2.5 to 7.2 between 2002 and 2005.. According to a separate study by Hewitt Associates, 27 percent of employers surveyed in early 2005 had either implemented step therapy or were in the process of adopting it for at least one therapeutic class. An additional 38 percent were considering step-therapy programs for their employees.. "The growth in step-therapy programs is ...

A threshold level of activating b1 receptors with known sedatives and novel compounds caused rotarod failure, measured as a sign of sedation. Compounds with b1 activity below that threshold of 80% modulation of GABA EC10 currents in electrophysiology did not cause rotarod deficits. Testing of the non-sedative compounds in mouse light-dark transition test and the rat elevated plus maze anxiety paradigms show these compounds to be non-sedative anxiolytics. This new model of β1 activation is more accurate for predicting sedative liability and could have profound impact in anxiolytic drug discovery methods. ...
This study supports the need to model the dynamic nature of hERG channel pharmacology, especially trapping, to explain why some drugs with similar hERG-blocking potency have different proarrhythmic liabilities. Together with multichannel pharmacology, our IKr-dynamic ORd model was able to stratify all CiPA training compounds into their corresponding TdP risk groups.. A unique feature of our approach is the use of a continuous parameter (Vhalf-trap) to represent the tendency of a drug to be trapped on hERG channel closing. Although the Vhalf-trap parameters appear consistent with previous classifications of compounds as either trapped or nontrapped by block recovery experiments, as in the case of dofetilide,26 bepridil, cisapride,11 and verapamil,21 some discrepancies exist. For instance, quinidine and terfenadine were considered nontrapped and trapped, respectively, in previous block recovery experiments11,26; however, quinidine seems to be more trapped than terfenadine based on their Vhalf-trap ...

Urticaria skin rash (nettle rash or hives) affecting the back of a patient. Urticaria is a transient swelling and/or flushing of the skin, which ranges from small spots to itchy weals (as here) to an area of general red inflammation. It usually lasts no more than a few hours, although the disorder may recur. Underlying vasodilation and accumulation of tissue fluid in the dermis develops as an allergic reaction. The cause of urticaria is often not known, as in this case. The cause is sometimes a food allergy (shellfish), a drug allergy, or following a virus infection. The itching can be relieved with lotions or by taking antihistamine drugs. - Stock Image M280/0070

Antihistamine medicines block the action of the chemical histamine during an allergic reaction to an irritant (allergen). Allergic symptoms, such as sneezing and itching, are not as bad when an antihistamine is taken.. Its important to check with a doctor before giving antihistamines to a child.. Some antihistamines can be bought over-the-counter, and some are prescribed. They can be taken by mouth (oral) or applied directly to the skin (topical). Pills and capsules contain a specific dose of medicine. The dose in a cream or ointment depends on how much is applied at one time and is harder to control. Too much antihistamine absorbed through the skin can be toxic, especially to children. The use of cream or ointment antihistamines is not reliable and not recommended. ...

Torsade de Pointes is a form of ventricular tachycardia, often fatal, in which the QRS complexes become twisted (changing in amplitude and morphology) and is best known for its occurrence in patients with long QT intervals. In our June 29, 2010 Patient Safety Tip of the Week Torsade de Pointes: Are Your Patients At Risk? we discussed the risks of this potentially fatal syndrome in hospitalized patients. Though cases of the long QT interval syndrome (LQTS) may be congenital, many are acquired and due to a variety of drugs that we prescribe. And many of those drugs may be used in behavioral health settings. Perhaps the best known are haloperidol and methadone but a variety of antipsychotic drugs and antidepressants may prolong the QT interval (see our February 5, 2013 Patient Safety Tip of the Week Antidepressants and QT Interval Prolongation ). For a full list of drugs that commonly cause prolongation of the QT interval and may lead to Torsade de Pointes, go to the CredibleMeds website. So if one ...
AIMS: We propose a study design with controlled hypoglycaemia induced by subcutaneous injection of insulin and matched control episodes to bridge the gap between clamp studies and studies of spontaneous hypoglycaemia. The observed prolongation of the heart rate corrected QT interval (QTc) during hypoglycaemia varies greatly between studies. METHODS: We studied ten adults with type 1 diabetes (age 41±15years) without cardiovascular disease or neuropathy. Single-blinded hypoglycaemia was induced by a subcutaneous insulin bolus followed by a control episode on two occasions separated by 4weeks. QT intervals were measured using the semi-automatic tangent approach, and QTc was derived by Bazetts (QTcB) and Fridericias (QTcF) formulas. RESULTS: QTcB increased from baseline to hypoglycaemia (403±20 vs. 433±39ms, p,0.001). On the euglycaemia day, QTcB also increased (398±20 vs. 410±27ms, p,0.01), but the increase was less than during hypoglycaemia (p,0.001). The same pattern was seen for QTcF. ...

The human liver microsomal studies described herein showed that only CYP3A4 was inhibited at clinically relevant concentrations of nelfinavir. The Ki values of nelfinavir for CYP2D6, CYP2C19, and CYP1A2 were 13- to 36-fold greater than the typical Cmax (5.3 μM) of nelfinavir achieved in humans at therapeutic doses (Agouron Pharmaceuticals, 1997). These findings suggest that nelfinavir drug interactions involving the CYP3A family are possible, whereas clinical inhibition of other isoforms is not expected. These in vitro inhibitory data were used to prioritize clinical drug interaction studies that focused on CYP3A4.. Terfenadine is a CYP3A4 substrate that undergoes extensive first pass metabolism following oral administration (Honig et al., 1992; Jurima-Romet et al., 1994). In the absence of a drug interaction, the carboxylate metabolite is the principal circulating entity in plasma, whereas unchanged terfenadine, a drug known to cause torsades de pointes, is normally not present at measurable ...
