Abstract

The combination of polymyxins and chloramphenicol possesses synergistic killing activity against New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase (NDM)-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae. This systems study examined the transcriptomic responses to the polymyxin/chloramphenicol combination in clinical NDM-producing K. pneumoniae isolate S01. Klebsiella pneumoniae S01 (initial inoculum ~108 CFU/mL) was treated with polymyxin B (1 mg/L, continuous infusion) or chloramphenicol [maximum concentration (Cmax) = 8 mg/L, half-life (t1/2) = 4 h], alone or in combination, using an in vitro pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) model to mimic their pharmacokinetics in patients. Transcriptomic profiles of bacterial samples ..
