MDR (multidrug resistant) gram-negative bacteria have emerged as an important cause of bloodstream infection in hospitalized patients, especially in immunocompromised hosts. It was previously shown, that intestinal colonization with extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL)-producing or carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, carbapenem-resistant A. baumannii and P. aeruginosa) is a clinical predictor of bloodstream infections in patients with haematological malignancies and/or haematopoietic stem cell transplantation [Stoma I. et al., 2016].
To the investigators knowledge no randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial has been performed to study the efficacy and safety of selective intestinal decolonization strategies in high-risk patients with haematological malignancies. Possible decolonization of MDR gram-negative bacteria in haematological patients could be important for the patient by reducing the risk of infection and for the community by reducing the risk of transmission.
The purpose of the proposed study is to assess the efficacy and safety of selective intestinal decolonization of MDR gram-negative bacteria with oral administration of Colistimethate sodium in high risk patients with haematological malignancies.

Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of CARDIOMYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN5A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with a variety of CARDIAC DISEASES that result from loss of sodium channel function.
Stable sodium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element sodium, but differ in atomic weight. Na-23 is a stable sodium isotope.
A family of membrane proteins that selectively conduct SODIUM ions due to changes in the TRANSMEMBRANE POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE. They typically have a multimeric structure with a core alpha subunit that defines the sodium channel subtype and several beta subunits that modulate sodium channel activity.
