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,...

Current Evidence-based Management of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: Collaborating To Improve Patient Care

Despite the availability of guidelines for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) management and new effective treatments, wide variabilities in care still exist. These variations are due, in part, to the difficulties of making a differential diagnosis of IPF and the challenges of developing and implementing cross-functional multidisciplinary team initiatives. In order to improve health outcomes for patients with IPF, Current Evidence-based Management of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: Collabor...

HRCT and the Radiologist’s Role in Diagnosing IPF

Use of a multidisciplinary team approach to the diagnosis and care of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) has been shown to improve treatment and outcomes. However, patients with IPF continue to suffer unacceptable delays in diagnosis and initiation of optimal treatments. High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) is recommended for all patients suspected to have idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs), as it can allow for a confident determination of disease without an invasiv...

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...
