Roberts, Darren M.; Fernando, Geethanie; Singer, Richard; Kennedy, Karina; Lawrence, Miriam; Talaulikar, Girish


Peritoneal dialysis (PD)-associated peritonitis is treated by administration of antibiotics mixed with the PD solution. Data on antibiotic stability for solutions in current use are limited. The aim of this study was to determine the stability of cefepime, cephazolin and ampicillin in three commercial PD solutions. Antibiotics were added to the non-glucose compartment of the Gambro (Gambrosol®) and Fresenius (Balance®) multi-compartment systems and Baxter (Dianeal®) single-compartment (glucose...[Show more]
