Background: Data on COL use in SOTR are lacking. In other populations, high dose (HD) COL (>4.4mg/kg/day) has been associated with clinical and microbiologic cure and decreased mortality.
Objectives: To describe the use, efficacy and safety of COL in multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacterial infections (MDR-GNI) in SOTR.
Methods: Retrospective study of adult SOTR with MDR-GNI who received COL≥48h, 2012-2017. We collected data on demographics, infection, COL dose and adverse effects. Primary outcome was clinical cure defined as resolution of signs and symptoms. Secondary outcomes were 30 and 90-day mortality, development of nephrotoxicity in SOTR with normal baseline creatinine and microbiologic cure defined as clearance of cultures at index site within 7 days.
Results: 68 SOTR received COL; 14 were excluded (12 for COL<48h, 2 for colonization without infection), leaving 54 for analysis. Mean age was 49.6(±15.3) years. 56% were male (n=30). 93% received antibiotics 30 days prior (n=50).
Mean COL dose was 4.45(±0.64) mg/kg/day. Median duration of COL was 7 (Q1=3.25; Q3=15) days. Clinical and microbiologic cure was attained in 55.6% (n=30) and 55.1% (n=27), respectively. The incidence of nephrotoxicity among was 17.2% (n=5). Overall 30 and 90-day mortality rates were 38.9% and 55.6%, respectively. HD COL was not associated with clinical (p=0.81), microbiologic cure (p=0.46), 30 (p=0.53) or 90-day (p=0.40) mortality. HD COL was not associated with nephrotoxicity (p=0.69). No other adverse effects were seen.
Conclusions: COL treatment achieved moderate success in clinical and microbiologic cure with relatively low rate of nephrotoxicity. Mortality in setting of MDR-GNI remains high. Outcomes were not associated to HD COL but study was limited due to sample size. Larger studies comparing COL to newer, better tolerated regimens are needed.
