Methods: This is a retrospective cohort study of patients from Columbia University Medical Center who had PNA with a respiratory culture positive for a carbapenem resistant GNB in 2014. Subjects met National Healthcare Safety Network criteria for PNA and received at least 48 hours of active antibiotic treatment. We compared subjects who received a PB based regimen to those who received a beta lactam (BL) based regimen (without PB). The primary outcome was 30-day all-cause mortality; additional outcomes were clinical response rate and nephrotoxicity.
Results: 50 patients met inclusion criteria; mean age was 65 years and 64% were male. Cultures were comprised of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (52%), Acinetobacter baumannii (26%), and Klebsiella pneumoniae (16%). 22 patients (44%) received a PB containing regimen. The PB group were more likely to be in an intensive care unit (ICU) (82% vs. 46%) compared to the BL group. 30-day mortality was 55% and 18% in the PB and BL groups respectively (p=0.023). Clinical response rate was 50% in PB group and 82% in the BL group (p=0.035). In a multivariable model adjusting for age, receiving an aminoglycoside, and ICU stay, the odds ratio of clinical success was 0.129 (95% confidence interval 0.02-0.73, p=0.02) for those with a PB vs. BL regimen. Of 28 patients evaluable for nephrotoxicity, 9 (75%) in the PB group developed acute renal failure on treatment compared to 4 (25%) in the BL group.
Conclusion: A PB based regimen for the treatment of MDR GNB PNA resulted in higher mortality and lower odds of clinical success compared to those who received a BL regimen, though those who received PB were more critically ill. These data highlight the need for better therapeutic options for MDR GNB PNA.
