INTRODUCTION: Pharmacists are underused in the care of chronic disease. The primary objectives of this project were to 1) describe the factors that influence initiation of and sustainability for pharmacist-provided medication therapy management (MTM)…

Rate constant estimation with heavy water requires a long-term experiment with data collection at multiple time points (3-4 weeks for mitochondrial proteome dynamics in mice and much longer in other species). When tissue proteins are analyzed, this…

Though older adults are more sensitive to the effects of medications than their younger counterparts, they are often excluded from manufacturer-based clinical studies. Practice-based research is a practical method to identify medication-related…

Neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) play an important role in the management of a large number of hospital patients. The pharmacology of NMBAs is well understood, but the use of these agents can be controversial. NMBAs are common in surgical…
