1 : Piperaciilin pharmacokinetics duringPlasma Exchange Jason Roberts(1,2) Jeffrey Lipman (2) (1) Pharmacy Department, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (2) Burns Trauma and Critical Care Research Centre, University of Queensland (3) Therapeutics Research Unit, University of Queensland
2 : Case Report A 17 year-old male Intubated and admitted to a tertiary intensive care unit (ICU) Diagnosed with Guillian-Barre Syndrome (GBS) Part of treatment regimen included Plasma Exchange (PE) Day 3 of the ICU admission, patient developed sepsis from aspiration pneumonia Immediate and appropriate antibiotic treatment Patient enrolled in microdialysis study
3 : Points to consider: What is GBS? What is Plasma Exchange (PE)? Why is antibiotic therapy important in ICU patients? Microdialysis? Will PE affect antibiotic therapy?
4 : GBS Guillian Barre Syndrome Acute inflammatory, peripheral neuropathy Immune system targets infectious pathogen that ‘re-directs’ host to nerve tissue causing de-myelination and axonal damage Can lead to failure of respiratory muscles leading to intubation Treatment includes Plasma Exchange
5 : Plasma Exchange A centrifugation process whereby plasma proteins including immunoglobulins are removed from the body and replaced with Albumex® Used in many disease treatments including: renal and metabolic diseases (e.g. antiglomerular basement membrane antibody disease); autoimmune and rheumatic diseases (e.g. GBS); haematologic diseases (e.g. thrombotic thrombocytopenia pupura) neurologic disorders (e.g. myasthenia gravis) Protein bound drugs also removed!!! Previously shown for vancomycin, ceftriaxone

7 : Microdialysis “In vivo technique for measuring molecule concentrations in tissues”
8 : Piperacillin Ureidopenicillin Broad spectrum – commonly selected as empiric therapy in sepsis Vd = 0.3L/kg Protein binding ~ 30% Excretion – mainly renal Pharmacodynamics – Time above MIC improves efficacy No publications on PE and piperacillin
9 : Intervention: Administer piperacillin-tazobactam by continuous infusion Day 1: Loading dosing 4.5gm over 20mins followed by 9gm over 24 hours; Day 2: 13.5gm over 24 hours Rationale – maximises T>MIC and may replace that which is removed by PE
10 : Blood and tissue concentrations
11 : Redistribution from tissue to serum
12 : Pharmacokinetic validation: AUC during PE = 4044mg.min/ml APE = 36.3mg (over 97 minute period) Arenal = 483.6mg (CLCR = 171ml/min) CLother = 19.0mg Amount piperacillin infused during PE = 5.55mg/min x 97min = 538.9mg 6.7% of clearance is due to PE over 97 minute period
13 : Discussion Piperacillin is eliminated by PE Amount is probably not clinically significant and effect is offset by continuous infusion Alternatively, PE before bolus dosing would minimise effect Literature shows that drugs with low Vd and high protein binding most likely to be affected by PE
14 : Conclusion Pharmacist has an essential role in optimizing pharmacotherapy in ICU Important to be aware of other interventions that may impact on pharmacotherapy Be prepared to alter traditional dosing strategies if required
