The study is based on the hypothesis that decreased creatinine clearance may be associated with detectable vancomycin levels in patients on enteral (oral / vancomycin enemas) vancomyicn for CDAD.
The objective of the study is to see whether enteral vancomycin is absorbed through the inflamed GI mucosa in CDAD, and if it is absorbed, does it achieve measurable serum concentration.
