Vancomycin-associated nephrotoxicity, a case control study
Université de Lausanne, Faculté de biologie et médecine
Number of pages
Vancomycin is a cornerstone antibiotic for the management of severe Gram positive infections. However, high doses of vancomycin are associated with a risk of nephrotoxicity. This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between the evolution of vancomycin trough concentration and the occurrence of nephrotoxicity, and to identify risk factors for both vancomycin-associated nephrotoxicity and vancomycin overexposure.
