Pharmacokinetics of Colistin Methanesulfonate and Formed Colistin in End-Stage Renal Disease Patients Receiving Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis
TLDR
Clearance by CAPD was low for both CMS and formed colistin, therefore, CMS doses should not be increased during CAPD, and the first evidence-based CMS dosage regimen for CAPD patients is proposed.
Extracorporeal clearance of colistin methanesulphonate and formed colistin in end-stage renal disease patients receiving intermittent haemodialysis: implications for dosing.
TLDR
Due to the extensive removal of CMS by dialysis, HD should be conducted at the end of a dosing interval and a supplemental dose should be administered.

The prevalence of XDR-PA infections represented almost a quarter of Pseudomonas aeruginosa hospital-acquired infections and rendered a higher mortality, including the presence of sepsis/septic shock, and factors associated with mortality attributable to the infections.
Efficacy and safety of de-escalation therapy to ertapenem for treatment of infections caused by extended-spectrum-β-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae: an open-label randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Ertapenem could be safely used as de-escalation therapy for ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae infections, once the susceptibility profiles are known, and future studies are needed to determine its applicability in life-threatening conditions.
Performance of the Cryptococcal Antigen Lateral Flow Assay in Non-HIV-Related Cryptococcosis
TLDR
The sensitivity of the cryptococcal antigen lateral flow assay was excellent, suggesting that this assay can replace conventional testing based on latex agglutination (LA), and titers were correlated but were not directly comparable, with implications for conversion between assays.
Rapidly-growing mycobacterial infection: a recognized cause of early-onset prosthetic joint infection
TLDR
