Pharmacists to prescribe, administer HIV prevention therapy in Colorado

As early as November 14, pharmacists in Colorado will be able to prescribe and dispense HIV prevention medications, making it one of the first states in the nation to allow patients to receive pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) treatment directly from a pharmacist. More than 14,000 people are reported to be living with HIV or AIDS in the state of Colorado; a number which has been rising over the last five years.

Pharmacists on the Front Lines: Critical Care Pharmacists Use Innovation to Combat Drug Shortages


Dr. Mary Bradley and Dr. Scott Mueller

Note: This story is part of an ongoing series, "Pharmacists on the Front Lines," which highlights the work of CU pharmacists in the COVID-19 battle.

Even the most well-stocked hospital in the U.S. is not immune to an all-too-familiar consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic: drug shortages. As the FDA monitors the drug supply chain contributing to the supply disruptions and shortage of drug products, pharmacists in COVID-19 units are using their drug expertise to develop innovative solutions.

Clinical trial: How a CU Pharmacy professor's research is helping people with severe epilepsy

 

 

For patients with a severe form of epilepsy, it can be dangerous to drive, go to work or even walk to the mailbox alone. A fear of falling and blacking out prevents many patients with medically refractory epilepsy from living lives most people take for granted.

“They can’t have a job, they can’t really live a normal life,” said Tom Anchordoquy, PhD, professor at the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. “These patients, before, had to always have someone with them because there was a fear of seizures.”

On top of that, the drugs patients with the severe form of epilepsy take to manage their disorder — which are needed in high concentrations in the brain — are typically taken orally and then distributed throughout the entire body, resulting in problematic side effects.
