Improving Long-Term Outcomes in Patients With Schizophrenia: What Is the Evidence for Long-Acting Injectable Antipsychotics?

Long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotics can prevent relapses and hospitalizations, but they are underutilized, especially early in the course of illness. Health care providers need confidence in discussing LAIs with patients. LAI antipsychotics may be a reasonable option for many patients with schizophrenia and should be discussed routinely when evaluating treatment options. Health care providers may lack knowledge of options for LAI antipsychotics and be reluctant to discuss this therapy,...

Precision Medicine and Impact of Therapeutic Drug Levels

Much has been written recently about the need for genetic testing and biomarkers to identify specific targets within cancers, recognizing that there are many subclones and individual differences within the malignancies that arise in patients, even in those with morphologically similar cancers. Another important aspect of cancer treatment is the need to optimize the dose and schedule of administered therapies. Pharmacogenomics has demonstrated that the bioavailability and half-lives of anti-ca...
