      Abstract: Jeannette C. Tarney Sickafoose Thouvenin, B.S., former director of pharmacy at Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio, died January 16 at the age of 94. Thouvenin was born August 6, 1924, in Coshocton, Ohio. She received her B.S. degree from Ohio State University College of Pharmacy in 1947 and spent her professional career at Aultman Hospital, where she served as director of pharmacy until her retirement in 1989. Thouvenin was active in the Ohio Society of Hospital Pharmacists, serving as secretary of the organization and, in 1961–1962, as president. She was also an active ASHP member, serving for many years as an Ohio delegate to ASHP’s House of Delegates. She was a member of ASHP’s Committee on Minimum Standards and the ASHP Advisory Panel on Awards. Thouvenin received a Distinguished Alumni Award from the Ohio State University College of Pharmacy in 1970. Other honors include the Walter M. Frazier Award from the Ohio Society of Hospital Pharmacists, Pharmacist of the Year Award from the Stark County Pharmaceutical Association, and recognition for four decades of exemplary service from the Akron Area Society of Hospital Pharmacists. In 2005, she established the Jeannette Thouvenin Scholarship Fund in Pharmacy at the Ohio State University College of Pharmacy to support pharmacy students pursuing a career in institutional practice.

  • Allergic reactions to small-molecule drugs: Will we move from reaction to
    • Authors: Bonfiglio M; Weinstein D.
      Pages: 574 - 580
      Abstract: PurposeThis primer provides background and an update on immune mechanisms which allow small-molecule drugs to trigger drug allergy.SummaryFor many years, understanding of drug allergy was limited. The hapten model of drug allergy applies only to a subset of drugs known to cause allergic reactions. More recently, the understanding of immune reactions has expanded to include pharmacologic interactions with the molecules involved in immune identity and surveillance. These insights are presented and discussed here.ConclusionGreater understanding of allergic reactions to drugs offers the promise to move from a position of reacting to immune reactions to a more proactive model. This may translate to new opportunities to characterize risk in drug development, confirm the nature of reactions in clinical settings, enhance the targeting of alerts, and ultimately to allow patient-specific prediction.

  • Predictors of Clostridioides difficile recurrence across a national cohort
           of veterans in outpatient, acute, and long-term care settings
    • Authors: Appaneal H; Caffrey A, Beganovic M, et al.
      Pages: 581 - 590
      Abstract: PurposeThe greatest challenge in treating Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) is disease recurrence, which occurs in about 20% of patients, usually within 30 days of treatment cessation. We sought to identify independent predictors of first recurrence among a national cohort of veterans with CDI.MethodsWe conducted a case-control study among acute and long-term care Veterans Affairs (VA) inpatients and outpatients with a first CDI episode (positive stool sample for C. difficile toxin[s] and receipt of at least 2 days of CDI treatment) between 2010 and 2014. Cases experienced first recurrence within 30 days from the end of treatment. Controls were those without first recurrence matched 4:1 to cases on year, facility, and severity. Multivariable conditional logistic regression was used to identify predictors of first recurrence.ResultsWe identified 32 predictors of first recurrence among 974 cases and 3,896 matched controls. Significant predictors included medication use prior to (probiotics, fluoroquinolones, laxatives, third- or fourth-generation cephalosporins), during (first- or second-generation cephalosporins, penicillin/amoxicillin/ampicillin, third- and fourth-generation cephalosporins), and after CDI treatment (probiotics, any antibiotic, proton pump inhibitors [PPIs], and immunosuppressants). Other predictors included current biliary tract disease, malaise/fatigue, cellulitis/abscess, solid organ cancer, medical history of HIV, multiple myeloma, abdominal pain, and ulcerative colitis.ConclusionIn a large national cohort of outpatient and acute and long-term care inpatients, treatment with certain antibiotics, PPIs, immunosuppressants, and underlying disease were among the most important risk factors for first CDI recurrence.

  • Patterns and characteristics associated with surface contamination of
           hazardous drugs in hospital pharmacies
    • Authors: Salch S; Zamboni W, Zamboni B, et al.
      Pages: 591 - 598
      Abstract: PurposeThe surface contamination levels of 5 commonly used hazardous drugs in hospital pharmacies are summarized, identifying practice patterns associated with contamination.MethodsContamination testing data were compiled to evaluate surface contaminants of 5 hazardous drugs (docetaxel, paclitaxel, cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide, and 5-fluorourcil). Data from 5,842 wipes over 6 years were collected from 338 hospital pharmacies. The contamination level for each drug was categorized as nondetectable (ND; ≤10 ng/ft2), low (between 10 and ≤100 ng/ft2), medium (between 100 and ≤1,000 ng/ft2) or high (>1,000 ng/ft2). Surface exposures for each drug were summarized based on location, contamination at first and subsequent wipe events, and the use of a closed system transfer device (CSTD).ResultsThe majority of contamination results corresponded to locations at or near hazardous drug preparation, but also occurred in areas where hazardous drugs were not prepared. There was a higher incidence of contamination levels (high, medium, and low, respectively) at first wipe event (10.2%, 17.4%, and 17.7%) compared to subsequent wipe events (5.8%, 12.2%, and 13.6%) (p < 0.0001). There was a lower incidence of contamination levels at institutions that used CSTDs (6.3%, 12.8%, and 14.4%) compared to institutions that did not use CSTDs (14.2%, 17.9%, and 17.3%) (p < 0.0001).ConclusionsThe majority of highest contamination levels corresponded to locations where hazardous drugs were prepared. While the rate of contamination was lower at subsequent wipe events and at institutions that used CSTDs, contamination was not completely eliminated in either scenario.

  • Evaluating containment effectiveness of A2 and B2 biological safety
    • Authors: Taylor A; Baker N, Hulsey M, et al.
      Pages: 599 - 607
      Abstract: PurposeThis study investigates the use of a canopy-connected recirculating class II type A2 biological safety cabinet (BSC) as an alternative to the B2 when preparing volatile, sterile compounded preparations. Selection of the appropriate BSC for processes that use subgram levels of volatile chemicals is difficult due to a lack of quantitative containment evidence by cabinet type. There is a perception that hazardous compounding must be done in a B2 cabinet due to the potential for vapors, and this study seeks to challenge that perception.MethodsIn total, 5 tests, 3 prequalification tests and 2 containment capability tests, were conducted on a single cabinet of each type at sterile compounding pharmacies. Prequalification tests were performed to verify that each BSC was operating properly. Each cabinet was certified to NSF-ANSI 49–2016, particle counted per ISO 14644-1:1999, and subjected to a qualitative video smoke study. Once these tests confirmed the expected working conditions, 2 containment capability tests were conducted. The containment testing included tracer gas testing per ASHRAE 110:2016 section 8.1.1 through 8.1.13, and cyclophosphamide sampling during sterile compounding of the drug material.ResultsBoth cabinets passed all the prequalification tests. During the ASHRAE tracer gas testing the A2 cabinet was able to contain a tracer gas 92% to 160% as effectively as the B2 cabinet depending on the position of the gas ejection. During sterile compounding the airborne cyclophosphamide sampling captured samples of less than 1.0 ng at all locations for both the A2 and B2 cabinets.ConclusionThe data generated from this study demonstrate that use of an A2 for hazardous compounding can provide a comparable level of safety for the environment, users, and product while having less stringent airflow requirements relative to a B2. The simpler requirements for an A2 make them an appealing alternative as they have the potential to reduce the overall operating costs associated with a compounding pharmacy while maintaining safe levels of containment.

  • Implementation of the flipped residency research model to enhance
           residency research training
    • Authors: Morbitzer K; Rao K, Rhoney D, et al.
      Pages: 608 - 612
      Abstract: PurposeThe attainment of fundamental research skills to create and disseminate new knowledge is imperative for the advancement of pharmacy practice. Research training is an important component of postgraduate residency training; however, the traditional model of performing residency research has several limitations that have hindered the ability of residents to complete high-quality research projects. Therefore, our institution developed and implemented the flipped residency research model with the 2013–2014 pharmacy practice residency class.SummaryThe flipped residency research model modifies the research timeline to better align research activities with residents’ abilities at specific time points during the year. In the 4 years following implementation of the flipped residency research model, our institution found improvements in a number of areas pertaining to the research process compared with an evaluation of the 7 years prior to implementation. A decrease in the number of reviews required from institutional review boards was observed, resulting in improved institutional review board efficiency. The flipped residency research model also addressed limitations surrounding manuscript development and submission, as demonstrated by an improved publication rate. Additionally, residents who participated in the flipped residency research model self-reported increased comfort with research-related abilities associated with study design, implementation, manuscript development and submission, and biostatistics.ConclusionThe modified research timeline of the flipped residency research model better aligns research activities with resident experiences and abilities. This realignment has translated to demonstrable impact in the success of residency projects and dissemination of results. Research is needed to investigate the impact of the flipped residency research model on longer term scholarly success.

  • Process improvement strategy to prepare and administer bacillus
           Calmette-GuĂ©rin vaccine in compliance with United States Pharmacopeia
           chapter 800 standards
    • Authors: Adams E; Amerine L.
      Pages: 613 - 616
      Abstract: PurposeThis case study describes a multidisciplinary initiative to promote the safe use, preparation, and administration of bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) in patients with bladder cancer that is in compliance with United States Pharmacopeia chapter 800.SummaryAfter an evaluation of a hospital’s medication-use process for the preparation and administration of BCG identified inconsistencies with guideline-based procedures for the safe handling and manipulation of hazardous drug products, a revised medication-use process promoting the inclusion of pharmacy services was developed by pharmacy and urology clinic leaders. Implementation of the enhanced medication-use process included (1) the shift of BCG vaccine preparation from urology clinic nurses to a pharmacy equipped with the appropriate engineering controls for the safe preparation of hazardous product, (2) greater involvement by pharmacists in BCG order justification and verification, and (3) a process that ensured just-in-time preparation and delivery of medication for enhanced patient satisfaction. After initial process changes resulted in increased turnaround time from preparation to administration, a study on time to preparation, delivery, and administration was conducted and resulted in complete reduction of turnaround times and increased patient satisfaction.ConclusionThrough a multidisciplinary initiative involving pharmacists, physicians, nurses, and leadership, a new process to promote the safe preparation and administration of the tuberculosis vaccine Mycobacterium bovis BCG was developed and implemented. The results of a post-implementation time study indicated that a standardized approach to scheduling, preparing, and administering BCG was effective in managing the operations of BCG through having high clinic and patient satisfaction.
