Randomized Trial of Continuous Versus Intermittent Cefotaxime Infusion on ICU.

2015-09-28 07:43:41 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates target attainment after either intermittent intravenous bolus or intravenous continuous infusion of cefotaxime in critically ill patients. Critically ill patients will be randomized to intermittent infusion or continuous infusion of cefotaxime.


Critically ill patients have other pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic profiles than healthy volunteers. Suboptimal, both under- and overdosing of antibiotics is an important threat in this patient category. Given the time-dependent character of beta-lactam antibiotics continuous dosing as opposed to traditional intermittent dosing is likely to render better target attainment and maintenance and might improve clinical outcome.

Disturbance of the Intestinal Microbiota by Temocillin vs Cefotaxime in Treatment of Febrile Urinary Tract Infections

This study will evaluate the ecological impact on the intestinal microbiota and compare the safety and efficacy of temocillin compared to cefotaxime, in empiric treatment of febrile UTI. H...

Effect of Genetic Variation in the Transporter, OAT3, on the Renal Secretion of Cefotaxime

In the proposed study, we plan to use a genotype to phenotype strategy to study the role of the organic anion transporter, OAT3, in drug response. More specifically we will examine the co...

Impact of the Choice of 3rd Generation Cephalosporins on the Emergence of Resistance in the Microbiota Intestinal.

CEREMI is an open, randomised prospective study in parallel groups in healthy volunteers. This study compare the effect of a monotherapy by ceftriaxone or cefotaxime on the emergence of re...
