The influence of uremia on the accessibility of phosphomycin into interstitial tissue fluid

European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
C Fernandez LastraM Yuste Chaves


The entry and persistence of phosphomycin in interstitial tissue fluid (ITF) were studied in 9 patients with normal renal function and 8 patients with varying degrees of renal impairment, all of whom received a single i.v. dose of 30 mg/kg. ITF was obtained from skin blisters produced by suction. The antibiotic followed a two-compartment open kinetic model. In patients with normal renal function, phosphomycin is incorporated rapidly into the ITF reaching a level of 60.4 micrograms/ml 60 min after administration. There was no statistically significant difference between the elimination rates from serum and ITF. The serum half-life of the slow disposition phase was 1.75 h in patients with normal renal function. There was a linear correlation between the elimination half-life of phosphomycin in serum and ITF in subjects with differing degrees of renal impairment.

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.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration
