Determination by LC–MS/MS of Colistins A and B in Plasma and Ultrafiltrate From Critically Ill Patients Undergoing Continuous Venovenous Hemodiafiltration
Background: Colistin is a 50-year-old antibiotic, the use of which was ceased in the 70s and recently resumed as a “salvage therapy” against multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacteria, such asExpand

Coupled-plasma filtration and adsorption for severe burn patients with septic shock and acute kidney injury treated with renal replacement therapy.
BACKGROUND Coupled-plasma filtration adsorption (CPFA) is a sorbent-based technology aimed at removing soluble mediators of septic shock. We present our experience on the use of CPFA in septic shockExpand
