BACKGROUND Tigecycline, a first-in-class broad-spectrum glycylcycline antibiotic, has broad-spectrum in vitro activity against bacteria commonly encountered in complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAIs), including aerobic and facultative Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and anaerobic bacteria. In the current trial, tigecycline was evaluated for(More)
OBJECTIVE Meropenem is important for management of postneurosurgical meningitis, but the data about its penetration into cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are inadequate. This prospective, open-label study investigated the pharmacokinetic profile of meropenem in patients with postneurosurgical meningitis, especially its CSF penetration. METHODS A total of 82(More)
Meropenem is used to manage postneurosurgical meningitis, but its population pharmacokinetics (PPK) in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in this patient group are not well-known. Our aims were to (i) characterize meropenem PPK in plasma and CSF and (ii) recommend favorable dosing regimens in postneurosurgical meningitis patients. Eighty-two patients were(More)
