The most common grade 3 or 4 AEs seen in at least 10% of patients were fatigue, urinary tract infection, increased aspartate aminotransferase and increased blood creatine kinase.
Changes in blood chemistry were restricted to aspartate aminotransferase, creatine kinase, total protein, glucose, and uric acid.
Investigators noted that ARRY-382 had a manageable safety profile when administered with Keytruda in this study, and the most common grade 3/4 adverse events , regardless of causality, included increased AST, increased blood creatine kinase, rash, increased lipase, increased alkaline phosphatase, increased alanine aminotransferase and anemia.
687 ng/ml), creatine kinase (500 U/L), and creatine kinase-MB isoenzyme (42.
Blood tests indicated that all three patients had eosinophilia, a commonly observed sign of parasitic infection; two patients also had elevated creatine kinase levels, indicative of muscle inflammation (Table).

Methods: Distribution of allele and genotype frequencies of the muscle specific creatine kinase (CK-MM) gene A/G polymorphism was assessed in a survey among 275 athletes residing in state of Isfahan (86 professional karatekas (43 male and 43 female) and 86 amateur karatekas (50 male and 36 female) and 103 non-athlete individuals (50 male and 53 female).
The level of creatine kinase was 30,445 IU/L, creatine phosphokinase 4,145.
Total blood creatine kinase concentration was assessed by taking and analysing 30 pL of blood, using a Reflotron (Reflotron Plus, Roche, Rotkreuz, Switzerland) (CV = 3.
Myocardial biomarkers were increased, with high total creatine kinase (CK) and CK-MB activities.
6) Myopathy is defined as any muscle symptom--pain, tenderness or weakness, accompanied by a creatine kinase concentration greater than ten times the upper limit of normal for the particular laboratory.
1%), normal creatine kinase (93 IU/L, normal range is 26-140 IU/L), and the CT results of brain at that day showed no obvious abnormalities.
