Colistin pharmacokinetics were prospectively studied after intravenous administration of colistin methanesulphonate in critically ill patients without central nervous system infection (controls, n = 5) and in patients with external ventricular drain-associated ventriculitis after intravenous administration (EVDViv, n = 3) or combined(More)
OBJECTIVES Available data on colistin pharmacokinetics in patients undergoing continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) are limited. Our aim was to study colistin pharmacokinetics in critically ill patients treated with colistin methane sulphonate for Gram-negative sepsis and undergoing continuous venovenous haemodiafiltration for acute renal failure.

Colistin penetration into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was studied in five critically ill adult patients receiving colistin methanesulfonate for infections by multiresistant gram-negative bacilli. Colistin concentrations were determined in paired serum and CSF samples, with the latter taken by lumbar puncture, with the exception of one patient with an(More)
Correspondence is also little doubt that technologic and human capabilities will continue to improve and that improvements in patients’ outcomes will follow. The point of our editorial was not to argue against research and innovation, quite to the contrary. Our view is simply that the lessons of the worldwide 2009 infl uenza A(H1N1) epidemic do not support(More)
The genetic polymorphism of two salivary enzymes (esterase and alpha-amylase) was studied in individuals from eight districts of Greece. The pooled gene frequencies were: SetS = 0.63, SetF = 0.37, AMY1 = 0.87, AMY2 = 0.10, AMY3 = 0.02, and AMY4 = 0.01. There was no intrapopulation heterogeneity, while there was a significant difference between the Greeks(More)
