Extensively and multi-drug resistant A. baumannii (AB) represent an emerging threat in hospitals locally and worldwide. There is lack of prospective comparative clinical data to guide optimal strategy for treating such infections. Since it remains unclear how to treat bacteremia caused by AB, the present study aims to enroll patients at multiple sites with extensively drug resistant Acinetobacter species bacteremia receiving different combination therapy to assess treatment outcomes and analyze risk factors associated with mortality.
Infections caused by imipenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii are associated with high mortality and morbidity. The treatment choices for this resistant pathogen are limited. The objective of the present proposal is to evaluate the effectiveness of combination therapy of imipenem and sulbactam in patients contracted with A. baumannii, and to correlate the clinical effect with the in vitro synergistic results.
