Systematic external evaluation of reported population pharmacokinetic models of vancomycin in Chinese children and adolescents.

Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics

Various population pharmacokinetic (PopPK) models for vancomycin in children and adolescents have been constructed to optimize the therapeutic regimen of vancomycin. However, little is known about their predictive performance when extrapolated to different clinical centres. Therefore, the aim of this study was to externally validate the predictability of vancomycin PopPK model when extrapolated to different clinical centres and verify its applicability in an independent data set. The published models were screened from the literature and evaluated using an external data set of a total of 451 blood concentrations of vancomycin measured in 220 Chinese paediatric patients. Prediction- and simulation-based diagnostics and Bayesian forecasting were performed to evaluate the predictive performance of the models. Ten published PopPK models were assessed. Prediction-based diagnostics showed that none of the investigated models met all the standards (median prediction error (MDPE) ≤ ±20%, median absolute prediction error (MAPE) ≤30%, PE% within ±20% (F20 ) ≥35% and PE% within ±30% (F30 ) ≥50%), indicating unsatisfactory predictability. In simulation-based diagnostics, both the visual predictive checks (VPC) and the normalized prediction...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
