Colistin and rifampicin in the treatment of nosocomial infections from multiresistant Acinetobacter baumannii.

Given these reports, and uncertainty surrounding the penetration of colistin methanesulphonate and the formed colistin into ibtraventricular CSF, it appears that use of intravenous colistin methanesulphonate alone for management of acinetobacter meningitis may be inadvisable.

The probability of 2 g of intravenous ceftazidime every 8 h 0. Polymyxin B for injection package insert. A report of 3 cases. The potential efficacy of the antibiotic may be improved if an alternative dosing strategy is used eg, use of higher daily doses administered as a continuous infusion.

Meningitis due to Acinetobacter calcoaceticus variant anitratus.

Given the pharmacodynamic issues mentioned above, we would recommend a dosing regimen of mg ciprofloxacin, or higher, every 8 h if the drug was to be used for acinetobacter meningitis. Gram-negative bacillary meningitis after cranial surgery or trauma in adults.


Rea RS, Capitano B. Intraventricular IVT therapy has been applied; however, its effectiveness remains controversial, and the adverse drug effects are considerable.

Nontraditional dosing of ampicillin-sulbactam for multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii meningitis.

The pharmacokinetic parameter that best correlates with a positive outcome for serious infections when gentamicin is administered intravenously, is the ratio of peak serum concentration C max to MIC optimally the ratio should be greater than ten. Penetration of ceftazidime into cerebrospinal fluid of patients with bacterial meningitis.

This high dose resulted in a peak CSF concentration intraveentricular 2. Insertion or exchange of external ventricular drain EVD.
