Quantification of letermovir in human serum using high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection

A simple, rapid, cost-effective and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatography method with diode array detection was developed and validated for the quantification of letermovir, a compound approved for prophylaxis of cytomegalovirus infection and disease in adult recipients of an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant. Sorafenib was used as internal standard. Samples were pre-treated by liquid-liquid extraction with tert-butyl methylether. Separation was achieved on a XTerra® RP18…

Pneumonia due to <em>Schizophyllum commune</em> in a Patient with Acute Myeloid Leukemia: Case Report and Literature Review

Schizophyllum commune is a mold in phylum Basidiomycota and is an uncommon human pathogen. Sinusitis and allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis are the two major diseases caused by S. commune. Although there have been several reports of invasive fungal diseases, most of them were invasive sinusitis. We present a case of invasive fungal pneumonia due to S. commune, developed in a patient with acute myeloid leukemia presenting neutropenic fever.

Synergistic Effect of Propolis and Antibiotics on Uropathogenic <em>Escherichia coli</em>

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common bacterial infections around the world. Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is among the main pathogens isolated in UTIs. The rate of UPEC with high resistance towards antibiotics and multidrug-resistant bacteria have increased dramatically and conduct to the difficulty to treat UTIs. Due to the rarefaction of new antibiotics molecules, new alternative strategies must be evaluated. Since many years, propolis has demonstrated an interesting…
