Risk factors for nephrotoxicity onset associated with polymyxin B therapy.
Polymyxin B is an active agent against many MDR Gram-negative bacteria, but nephrotoxicity is a major hindrance to its widespread use. To guide its optimal use, we determined the risk factors for nephrotoxicity onset associated with polymyxin B.

Colistin- and polymyxin-induced nephrotoxicity: focus on literature utilizing the RIFLE classification scheme of acute kidney injury.
With the reintroduction of colistimethate and polymyxin B into clinical practice, a review of their individual and comparative nephrotoxicity attributes as reported in contemporary literature was undertaken. Given variability in definitions used for

Risk Factors for Colistin-Associated Acute Kidney Injury: A Multicenter Study from Turkey.
The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) and risk factors due to colistin use in patients infected with multidrug-resistant pathogens. This multicenter, retrospective, observational study was conducted in Tu

Risk factors for acute kidney injury in older adults with critical illness: a retrospective cohort study.
Risk for acute kidney injury (AKI) in older adults has not been evaluated systematically. We sought to delineate the determinants of risk for AKI in older compared with younger adults.

In vitro assessment and multicenter cohort study of comparative nephrotoxicity rates associated with colistimethate versus polymyxin B therapy.
Despite concerns of nephrotoxicity, polymyxin antibiotics often remain the only susceptible agents for multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria. Colistin has been more commonly used clinically due to a perceived safety benefit. We compared th

Polymyxin B Nephrotoxicity: From Organ to Cell Damage.
Polymyxins have a long history of dose-limiting toxicity, but the underlying mechanism of polymyxin B-induced nephrotoxicity is unclear. This study investigated the link between the nephrotoxic effects of polymyxin B on renal metabolic functions and

Risk factors associated with acute kidney injury in a cohort of 20,575 arthroplasty patients.
Background and purpose - Patients developing postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) are at risk of higher morbidity and mortality. In arthroplasty patients, many pre- and perioperative factors are associated with AKI but some of the risk factors are

Risk factors for acute kidney injury in overweight patients with acute type A aortic dissection: a retrospective study.
To identify risk factors for acute kidney injury (AKI) in overweight patients who underwent surgery for acute type A aortic dissection (TAAD).

Risk factors for acute kidney injury after partial hepatectomy.
To identify risk factors for the occurrence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in the postoperative period of partial hepatectomies.

CLINICAL CHARACTERISTICS, OUTCOMES AND RISK FACTORS FOR DEATH AMONG CRITICALLY ILL PATIENTS WITH HIV-RELATED ACUTE KIDNEY INJURY.
The aim of this study is to describe clinical characteristics, outcomes and risk factors for death among patients with HIV-related acute kidney injury (AKI) admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU).
