Bioactivation of Trimethoprim to Protein-Reactive Metabolites in Human Liver Microsomes.
The formation of drug-protein adducts via metabolic activation and covalent binding may stimulate an immune response or may result in direct cell toxicity. Protein covalent binding is a potentially pivotal step in the development of idiosyncratic adv

Urinary biomarkers of kidney diseases in HIV-infected children.
A significant number of children infected with the human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) virus all over the world are at risk of developing renal diseases that could have a significant impact on their treatment and quality of life. It is necessary t

Evaluation of novel urinary tract infection biomarkers in children.
Pediatricians frequently use urinalysis to diagnose urinary tract infection (UTI) while awaiting urine culture results, but sensitivity and specificity of urinalysis are limited. This study evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of the antimicrobial pepti

sulphamethoxazole.
Abstract The sensitivity to sulphamethizole, sulphamethoxazole (SM), trimethoprim (TMP) and the combination SM/TMP of freshly isolated urinary tract pathogens from hospital patients was studied. Out of 798 strains tested primarily, 47% were found to

The diagnosis of febrile urinary tract infection in children may be facilitated by urinary biomarkers.
We prospectively assessed the feasibility of two urinary markers of renal injury as potential diagnostic tests for acute febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) and subsequent renal scarring.

Predictive value of urinary and serum biomarkers in young children with febrile urinary tract infections.
Early predictive biomarkers for the diagnosis and management of febrile urinary tract infections (UTIs) can be valuable diagnostic tools in children.

Urinary Biomarkers for Screening for Renal Scarring in Children with Febrile Urinary Tract Infection: Pilot Study.
Recurrent febrile urinary tract infections during infancy cause renal scarring, which is characterized by progressive focal interstitial fibrosis and may lead to renal failure. Renal scarring can be diagnosed through scintigraphy, although it seems i

Heparin dosing in critically ill patients undergoing therapeutic hypothermia following cardiac arrest.
To determine the effects of anticoagulation with intravenous unfractionated heparin (IVUH) during therapeutic hypothermia (TH) post-cardiac arrest.

Theophylline Population Pharmacokinetics and Dosing in Children Following Congenital Heart Surgery With Cardiopulmonary Bypass.
Children undergoing cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) frequently develop acute kidney injury due to renal ischemia. Theophylline, which improves renal perfusion via adenosine receptor inhibition, is a potential targeted therapy.

Using urinary biomarkers to evaluate polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon exposure in 126 preschool children in Ohio.
Limited data exist on exposures of young children to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the United States (US). The urinary metabolite of pyrene, 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHPyr), is widely used as a biomarker of total PAH exposure. Our objectives w
