Animal Studies Carcinogenicity Stavudine is clastogenic in in vitro and in vivo assays but not mutagenic in in vitro assays. In 2-year carcinogenicity studies in mice and rats, stavudine was non-carcinogenic in doses producing exposures 39 (mice) and 168 (rats) times human exposure at the recommended therapeutic dose. At higher levels of exposure (250 [mice] and 732 [rats] times human exposure at therapeutic doses), benign and malignant liver tumors occurred in mice and rats and urinary bladder tumors occurred in male rats. No evidence of impaired fertility was seen in rats with exposures (based on Cmax) up to 216 times that observed following a clinical dosage of 1 mg/kg/day. In rat fetuses, the incidence of a common skeletal variation—unossifed or incomplete ossifcation of sternebra—was increased at 399 times human exposure, although no effect was observed at 216 times human exposure. A slight post-implantation loss was noted at 216 times human exposure, with no effect noted at approximately 135 times human exposure. An increase in early rat neonatal mortality (birth to day 4) occurred at 399 times human exposure, although survival of neonates was unaffected at approximately 135 times the human exposure. The concentration in fetal tissue was approximately one-half the concentration in maternal plasma. Among cases of frst-trimester stavudine exposure reported to the Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry, the prevalence of birth defects was 2.

Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry international interim report for 1 January 1989 - 1 January 2016. Animal Studies Carcinogenicity Tenofovir is mutagenic in one of two in vitro assays and has no evidence of clastogenic activity. Long-term oral carcinogenicity studies of tenofovir in mice and rats were carried out at 16 times (mice) and 5 times (rats) human exposure. In female mice, liver adenomas were increased at exposures 16 times that observed in humans at therapeutic doses. In rats, the study was negative for carcinogenic fndings at exposures up to 5 times that observed in humans at the therapeutic dose. There were also no effects on fertility, mating performance, or early embryonic development when tenofovir was administered to male rats (600 mg/kg/day; equivalent to 10 times the human dose based on body surface area) for 28 days before mating and to female rats for 15 days before mating through Day 7 of gestation. There was, however, an alteration of the estrous cycle in female rats administered 600 mg/kg/day. Based on this study’s results, the median tenofovir dose ingested through breastmilk was estimated at 0. The duration and clinical signifcance of these fndings require further longitudinal evaluation. Pregnancy-related effects on tenofovir pharmacokinetics: a population study with 186 women.

Pneumatosis intestinalis is a more specific finding pathogens such as Mycoplasma and Legionella spp. Detection of opportunistic and large bowel suggests a diagnosis of neutropenic pathogens in pulmonary infections is still a challenge. Patients with cancer who are neutropenic and have fever and local infiltrates on chest radiographs should be treated initially with broad-spectrum antibiotics, such as ceftazidime or imipenem. A new or persistent focal infil- trate not responding to broad-spectrum antibiotics argues for initiation of empiric antifungal therapy. When diffuse bilateral infiltrates develop in patients with febrile neu- tropenia, broad-spectrum antibiotics plus trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole, with or without erythromycin, should be initiated. The addition of an antiviral agent is necessary A in some settings, such as patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. If the patient does not improve in 4 days, open lung biopsy is the procedure of choice.
