Pharmacokinetics, outcome of treatment, and toxic effects of amphotericin B and 5-fluorocytosine in neonates.

Abstract

To determine the pharmacokinetics of amphotericin B and 5-fluorocytosine in neonates, we measured serum concentrations at first dose and after 5 days of therapy by high-performance liquid chromatography in 13 neonates (mean birth weight 1.2 +/- 0.8 kg). The dose of amphotericin B was serially increased from 0.1 to 0.5 mg/kg/day in 10 infants but was… (More)
