Title: Managing Drug Interactions in the Patient with Aspergillosis


1
Managing Drug Interactions in the Patient with
Aspergillosis
  • Russell E. Lewis, Pharm.D., FCCP
  • Associate Professor
  • University of Houston College of Pharmacy/
  • The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer
    Center

2
Patient Case
  • 44 y/o male with myelodysplastic syndrome s/p
    matched unrelated donor Allo-HSCT (Day 210)
    admitted with mental status changes and GvHD of
    the skin
  • Recent PMH
  • Ambisome 5 mg/kg 3x weekly, valganciclovir (maint
    dose), levofloxacin, TMP/sulfa prophylaxis, and
    vancomycin (catheter infection)
  • Extensive flair of GvHD involving skin, started
    on steroids in addition to current tacrolimus
    therapy
  • New ground glass opacities and nodular opacities
    in lower lung lobes
  • DC Ambisome, start voriconazole
  • Reduce tacrolimus dose by 30
  • On admission
  • Patient confused, disoriented but responsive
  • Whole blood tacrolimus 6.9 ng/mL 5-15 ng/mL
  • Serum electrolytes WNL, CSF normal
  • CT Moderate parieto-occipital cerebral atrophy
    without focal abnormalities.

3
Patient Case Cont.
  • Additional CSF workup
  • Gram stain and cultures negative
  • PCR CMV, HSV 12, HHV 6, EBV, Varicella, JC/BK
  • Tacrolimus
  • MRI
  • Areas of high signal throughout the white matter
    particularly involving the parietal regions with
    some extension on the right to the frontal lobe
  • Tacrolimus concentration
  • Serum 6.2 ng/mL
  • CSF 42 ng/mL!
  • Diagnosis
  • Tacrolimus associated Posterior Reversible
    Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES)
  • Exacerbated by voriconazole?

4
Factors that Increase the Potential for Serious
Drug Interactions with Antifungal Therapy
  • Polypharmacy
  • Underlying renal or hepatic dysfunction
  • Drugs with narrow therapeutic index
  • Debilitation /malnutrition/ chronic
    immunosuppression
  • Genetic predisposition (I.e. poor metabolizer)

Risk is cumulative, and the relative impact each
factor at different timepoints in unknown
5
Classification of Drug Interactions
6
Pharmacodynamic Interactions of Antifungals
  • Beneficial
  • Synergy (e.g., echinocandin triazole)
  • Suppression of resistance (e.g., 5-FC
    amphotericin B)
  • Detrimental
  • Antagonism (e.g., triazole amphotericin B)
  • Overlapping toxicities
  • Amphotericin B other nephrotoxic drugs
  • Amphotericin B nephrotoxicity ? accumulation of
    renally-eliminated drugs ? electrolyte
    disturbances ? diuretics ? enhanced toxicity of
    steroids ? digoxin, skeletal muscle relaxants
  • Azoles steroids ? adrenal suppression
  • All antifungals ? hepatic toxicity

Voriconazole Interactions Affecting
Pharmacokinetics/Dynamics of Other Drugs
Voriconazole may also increase the plasma
concentrations of several drugs including
benzodizepines, calcium channel blockers, HMG-CoA
reductase inhibitors, vinca alkaloids, busulfan,
cyclophosphamide sulfonylureas, protease
inhibitors, NNRTIs, sirolimus, quinidine and
pimozidine, however, published studies are
lacking.
17
Posaconazole Interactions Affecting
Pharmacokinetics/Dynamics of Other Drugs
Posaconazole may also increase the plasma
concentrations of several drugs including
benzodizepines, calcium channel blockers, HMG-CoA
reductase inhibitors, vinca alkaloids, busulfan,
cyclophosphamide, sulfonylureas, protease
inhibitors, NNRTIs, sirolimus, quinidine and
pimozidine, however, published studies are
lacking.

Pharmacogenomic microarray typing-Cleared in
U.S. and EU for Diagnostic Use
CYP450 Array The world's first pharmacogenomic
microarray designed for clinical applications
that provides comprehensive coverage of gene
variations including deletions and duplications
for the 2D6 and 2C19 genes, which play a role
in the metabolism of about 25 of all
prescription drugs. It is intended to be an aid
for physicians in individualizing treatment doses
for patients on therapeutics metabolized through
these genes. Cost- 500/ test

Summary
  • Patients with invasive aspergillosis have many
    risk factors for potentially harmful drug
    interactions, some of which may be unanticipated
  • A pro-active approach is essential to protect
    patients from potentially severe interactions
  • Better laboratory support may help the management
    of suspected interactions (serum drug level
    monitoring, genotyping?)
  • Drug interactions that are always significant
  • Interactions affecting agents with narrow
    therapeutic index (e.g., immunosuppressants,
    chemotherapy, anti-retrovirals)
  • Interactions increasing the metabolism of
    antifungals used to treat the Aspergillus
    infection
  • Interactions affecting the QTc (Torsades de
    pointes)
