Pharmacokinetics of oral spironolactone in infants up to 2 years of age - PubMed 11/12/2023

Our tutor and programme leader Jana Lass published an article "Pharmacokinetics of oral spironolactone in infants up to 2 years of age" in European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.
Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic used for decades. Until now, pharmacokinetic (PK) studies of spironolactone have not been conducted in infants and therefore pediatric dosing is based on expert opinion. They aimed to describe the PK profiles of spironolactone and its main metabolites in infants up to two years of age.
Check the details of their study here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/38041740/

Congratulations to Jana and her team!

Pharmacokinetics of oral spironolactone in infants up to 2 years of age - PubMed The pharmacokinetics of spironolactone and its metabolites was highly variable between patients below 2 years of age. Body weight explained a significant part of this variability; this highlights the need to take it into account for dosing prescription in this population. (Clinical trial Registratio...

🆕Kliinikumi arendusfondi toel on valminud antibakteriaalse ravi veebirakendus.
📲Veebirakenduses käsitletakse sagedasemaid haiglas esinevaid täiskasvanute ja laste infektsioonhaigusi.
➡️Nende haiguste adekvaatne ja õigeaegne antibiootikumravi parandab ravi efektiivsust ja ohutust, lühenevad ravi kestus ja vähenevad ravikulud.
➡️„On üldteada, et haigustekitajate spektril ja ravimtundlikkusel on märkimisväärsed geograafilised variatsioonid. Seetõttu on kohalikule Eesti epidemioloogiale kohandatud ravisoovitustel unikaalne väärtus. Tundes ülikoolihaigla vastutust, jagab Kliinikum hea meelega koostatud ravisoovitusi üliõpilaste, residentide ja kõigi Eesti arstidega,“ lausus Kliinikumi teadus- ja arendustegevuse juht professor Starkopf.
