The purpose of this study was to identify the optimum dosing regimen of linezolid in sepsis patients with and without renal dysfunction and sepsis patients on low-dose continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) using a pharmacokinetics/pharmacokinetics (PK/PD) approach.

Several factors contribute to the high variability of linezolid plasma exposure in patients. Very recently, it has been suggested that linezolid could be an ABCB1 substrate. Therefore, the present cli...
Vancomycin is a commonly prescribed antibiotic in the intensive care unit (ICU). However, there is limited data describing its distribution into the interstitial space fluid (ISF) of tissues. The aim ...
Linezolid-induced thrombocytopenia is one of the many confounding conditions in critically ill patients. It is rare but prognostic importance of linezolid-induced thrombocytopenia in ICU population ha...
Dexmedetomidine (DEX) is an α-2 adrenergic agonist with sedative and analgesic properties. Although not approved for pediatric use by the Food and Drug Administration, DEX is increasingly used in ped...
Atrial fibrillation, peripheral and coronary artery disease and venous thromboembolism are major risk factors for stroke, disability, and death in the rapidly growing older (≥ 65 years.) population....
This study is based on the hypothesis that the pharmacokinetics of meropenem and linezolid in severe infectious children are different from mild infectious children and adults. The investi...
The FDA has asked Pfizer to assess the risk of linezolid on QT interval (obtained from ECG readings) which could predispose patients to ventricular arrhythmias. This study is conducted to...
To understand and characterize the effects of linezolid on the optic nerve by observing and following patients who have been treated with linezolid for two months or longer for the develop...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the mycobactericidal activity, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of 5 doses of linezolid: 300 mg once per day, 300 mg twice per day, 600 m...
To determine the pharmacokinetic profile of IV (intravenous) and PO (oral) formulations of linezolid among children with cystic fibrosis and establish a dose regimen that will be safe and ...
Naturally occurring genetic variations associated with drug response (e.g., dosage, extent and rate of metabolic processes). While these variants are not markers for GENETIC PREDISPOSITION TO DISEASE they influence PHARMACOKINETICS and pharmacodynamics and often occur on genes encoding drug metabolism enzymes and transporters (e.g., ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME; CYTOCHROME P-450 CYP2D6).
Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.
The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.
Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.
Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.
Sepsis, septicaemia and blood poisoning
Septicaemia (another name for blood poisoning) refers to a bacterial infection of the blood, whereas sepsis can also be caused by viral or fungal infections. Sepsis is not just limited to the blood and can affect the whole body, including the organ...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
