Also, bone marrow depression (inducing leukopenia and thrombocytopenia) and acute kidney and liver failure have been reported. , under the drug name , a form of folate (formyl-THF), can help "rescue" or reverse the toxic effects of methotrexate. Folinic acid is not the same as folic acid. Folic acid supplements have little established role in cancer chemotherapy. Cases of severe adverse effects of accidental substitution of folic acid for folinic acid have been (...) [ ] The risk of toxicity from folic acid is low, because folate is a water-soluble vitamin and is regularly removed from the body through urine. One potential issue associated with high doses of folic acid is that it has a masking effect on the diagnosis of due to vitamin B 12 deficiency. An additional concern raised was that low vitamin B 12 status in combination with high folic acid intake appeared to increase the risk of cognitive impairment.

Previous versions: Abstract Heart failure is a common, costly, and debilitating syndrome that is associated with a highly complex drug regimen, a large number of comorbidities, and a large and often disparate number of healthcare providers. All of these factors conspire to increase the risk of heart failure exacerbation by direct myocardial toxicity (...) . Hospitalization for HF is the largest segment of those costs. It is likely that the prevention of drug-drug interactions and direct myocardial toxicity would reduce hospital admissions, thus both reducing costs and improving quality of life. Patients with HF often have a high medication burden consisting of multiple medications and complex dosing regimens. On average, HF patients take 6.8 prescription medications per day, resulting in 10.1 doses a day. This estimate does not include over-the-counter (OTC
resistance. Sample containers with boric acid preservative should be filled to the marked line. If urine dipstick is negative for nitrite and positive for leukocyte, UTI is equally likely to other diagnosis. Send urine for culture to confirm diagnosis. If urine dipstick is negative for all nitrite, leukocyte and RBC, UTI is less likely. No need to send sample for urine culture — consider other diagnoses. A sample should be sent for urine culture in all women with suspected lower UTI who: Are pregnant (...) or leukocytes and blood are positive [ ]. Use of symptoms and dipsticks to diagnose UTI is not completely reliable — severity of symptoms must be considered in each specific case and appropriate safety-netting put in place [ ]. Urine samples in universal containers should be cultured within 4 hours of collection, refrigerated, or sent in a container with boric acid preservative [ ]. Boric acid can affect urine dipstick tests and cause false negative culture if urine is not filled to correct mark on specimen

SSRIs and SNRIs are generally better tolerated and safer than TCAs and MAOIs, having less anticholinergic effects, toxicity, lethality, and psychomotor or cognitive impairment [85,101]. MAOIs are generally reserved for second- or third-line treatment because of side effects, drug interactions, and dietary restrictions .

Anticonvulsants: Anticonvulsants are associated with gastrointestinal side effects, somnolence, weight gain, tremor, as well as dermatologic and hematologic side effects [111,118]. In addition, several anticonvulsants have a potential risk of serious rash, erythema multi- forme, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, or toxic epidermal necrolysis .

The systematic investigation of these issues requires large clinical trials, and the opportunity to participate in these trials is offered to most patients and families. Clinical trials for children and adolescents with ALL are generally designed to compare

The tubes are centrifuged, then a 10 µL aliquot is injected into the HPLC-DAD system in isocratic mode with detection at 266 nm. Threshold values are as follows: ? Ineffectiveness (and risk of secondary resistance): less than 25 ?g/mL ? Optimal therapeutic level: 30 to 80 ?g/mL ? Risk of toxicity: greater than 100 ?g/mL Other authors report different threshold values. 2.4 Licence (...)
