Purpose To define the pharmacokinetics of colistin after colistimethate sodium infusion and use clinical and microbiological data to explore pharmacodynamic relationships between colistin plasma levels, clinical and microbiological outcomes and drug-related toxicities. Research Design Multi-center, prospective, open-label, un-controlled observational study. MethodologyTechnical Approach Five plasma samples from 60 patients 18 years of age receiving colistimethate sodium will be collected, frozen and shipped to Ordway Research Institute where they will be analyzed using a liquid chromatographymass spectrometrymass spectrometry system to determine free and protein bound levels of colistin A and colistin B. This data will be used to generate pharmacokinetic models. Additionally, clinical data to include Sequential Organ Failure Assessment SOFA and Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II APACHE score, lab values of enrolled patients, and results of susceptibility testing on Gram negative bacterial isolates will be collected. The pharmacokinetic, clinical and microbiological data will be analyzed using Monte Carlo population modeling to explore pharmacodynamic relationships between plasma levels of colistin and clinical outcomes, microbiological outcomes and drug toxicities. This project is approved, but we will be unable to complete it as our collaborating lab, Ordway Research has closed and our local use of colistin has dropped to the point that we would be unable to achieve our enrollment goals.
