Background: For many respiratory infections caused by multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria, colistin is the only effective antibiotics despite its nephrotoxicity. Inhaled therapy of colistin with a synergistic antimicrobial component of rifampicin may offer better therapeutic efficacy and reduce adverse effects.
Aims: To develop a novel.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
