Adsorption of Selected Antibiotics to Resins in Extracorporeal Blood Purification.


PMID 26488754

Abstract

Extracorporeal blood purification systems (EBS) use specific adsorbents for the elimination of toxins and cytokines. The aim of this study was to test different adsorbents for their ability to reduce antibiotics in parallel to extracorporeal blood purification therapy. The in vitro adsorption experiments were carried out in human plasma with a newly established hydrophobic resin (Amberchrom CG161c) and adsorbents commercially available and approved in the clinics. The concentration of antibiotic was chosen equivalent to the recommended therapeutic dosage applied intravenously and was measured in plasma using ELISA test kits and high-performance liquid chromatography methods. The adsorbent that reduced all tested antibiotics in plasma close to the detection limit was the dia MARS AC250, which is an activated charcoal involved in the Molecular Adsorbents Recirculation System. For better antibiotic monitoring in sepsis treatment, further investigations have to be performed to determine the clearance rate of antibiotics by different EBS devices.
