A revision of rapid colistin desensitization

Polymyxins, namely colistimethate sodium (colistin or polymyxin E) and polymyxin B, are used for multi-drug resistant gram-negative bacterial infections, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii 1. As treatments and therapy have advanced, patients with cystic fibrosis are living longer. However, these patients have high exposure to intravenous antibiotics, most commonly penicillins, cephalosporins, and aminoglycosides. With colonization or infections with resistant gram-negative bacilli, the exposure to antibiotics broadens to include the polymyxins.

ConclusionsFor closed-circuit dialysis using an RBC solution, the formula [dialysate flow rate (mL/min)  × time of dialysis (min)]/extracorporeal volume (mL) would be a better parameter to estimate efficacy, compared with other metrics. Additionally, the citrate concentration can be readily estimated from the ionized calcium concentration during closed-circuit dialysis.

In conclusion, we proved that HLJDD-NBA fraction is an effective fraction of HLJDD in treating UC in mice, and it can maintain the intestinal flora homeostasis of UC mice, which increases our understanding of the mechanism of HLJDD in treating UC and lays a foundation for the development of new anti-ulcer drugs.
