Chemical compound and disease context of Patient Selection


Biological context of Patient Selection

  • With appropriate patient selection and education, as well as better understanding of theophylline kinetics and potential drug interactions, inadvertent oral theophylline intoxication can be minimized [21].
  • The subclone, C1, was prepared by fluorescence-activated cell cloning using a rapid response kinetics and a large response magnitude following stimulation by AII as the selection criteria [22].
  • Selection criteria were direct selection for number born (LS), selection on an index of ovulation rate and the proportion of ova shed that resulted in fully formed pups (IX), selection for number born in unilaterally ovariectomized females as an indication of uterine capacity (UT), and an unselected control (LC) [23].
  • REVIEW METHODS: Selection criteria: Comparative randomized trials of PCA vs. PCN were included [24].
  • PURPOSE: We review the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in urology, and present the mechanisms of hyperoxia action in whole body hyperbaric chamber treatments, patient outcomes and patient selection criteria [25].

Anatomical context of Patient Selection


Associations of Patient Selection with chemical compounds

  • The success of prophylactic diltiazem is, however, critically dependent on proper patient selection [31].
  • These data suggest that quinidine may have an adverse effect on mortality as compared to other class I antiarrhythmic agents and that individualized patient selection for the use of this agent be carefully weighed relative to its potential for harm and benefit [32].
  • This prospective study showed that the rate of biologic response to DDAVP is relatively low not only in type 2 but also in type 1 VWD when uniform and stringent criteria for patient selection and responsiveness are applied [33].
  • Surgeon experience, careful patient selection, and the use of intraoperative steroid bolus predicted optimal patient outcomes [34].
  • METHOD: Consecutive patients meeting selection criteria and receiving prescriptions for haloperidol (N=57), perphenazine (N=60), risperidone (N=80), olanzapine (N=63), and quetiapine (N=28) over a 3-month period were identified from a computerized database [35].

Gene context of Patient Selection

  • Indeed, when adjusted to CRP, IL-6 tended to improve patient selection, but did not reach statistical significance (P = .07) [36].
  • The wide range of NPM-ALK positivity reported in different series appears to be dependent on the inclusion and selection criteria of the ALCL cases studied [37].
  • In conclusion, these findings emphasize the relevance of the intestinal plasminogen activation system for survival prognosis of patients with colorectal cancer and, in the future, might constitute a patient selection criterion for adjuvant therapy [38].
  • RESULTS: A total of 280 RA patients aged > or = 65 years initiated therapy with etanercept (n = 99) or infliximab (n = 181) and met all other selection criteria [39].
  • Because the drug's toxicity is significant and the overall response rates are low, patient selection may be the most important factor in the clinical use of continuous-infusion IL-2 therapy [40].
