Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of potential drug-drug interactions (pDDIs) and adverse drug events (ADEs) associated with antimycotics in hospitalized patients with hematopoietic SCT (HSCT). Of the 120 HSCT recipients evaluated, 36 received antimycotics. A total of 124 ADEs were recorded in 32 of the 36 patients treated, with 54 ADEs being possibly and 9 probably related to antimycotics. Of the treatments with amphotericin B, 93% were associated with one or more possible and 36% with probable ADEs. The corresponding figures for lipid-based amphotericin B were 100% and 7%, for voriconazole 68% and 11% and for caspofungin 70% and 0%. A total of 57 potentially severe DDIs associated with antimycotics were detected in 31 of the 36 patients. Of these, 14 DDIs were a possible cause of an ADE and 5 (4 times a combination of voriconazole with CYA and once a combination of CYA with conventional amphotericin B) were probably related. Although the prevalence of pDDIs and ADEs is high in HSCT patients, ADEs related with a high probability to treatment with antimycotics are rare. Regarding the high prevalence of pDDIs, our findings underscore the importance of close monitoring of laboratory and clinical parameters, as well as dose adjustment for critical drugs, in patients with HSCT.
