Treatment with a combination of ethanol-lock and parenteral therapy
Drug: Ethanol-lock therapy
Daily ethanol-lock with 70% ethanol instilled in device dead-space, leaved in place for the longest possible interval, and then discarded. For dialysis devices, it is acceptable to leave the lock in place between dialysis sessions. Lock therapy will be continued for 7 days.
Active Comparator: Antibiotic lock
Treatment with a combination of antibiotic-lock and parenteral therapy
Daily antibiotic-lock according to 2009 IDSA Guidelines,instilled in device dead-space, leaved in place for the longest possible interval, and then discarded. For dialysis devices, it is acceptable to leave the lock in place between dialysis sessions. Lock therapy will be continued for 7 days.
- Ratio of saved devices [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
- Number of participants with adverse events linked to ethanol lock as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
Major adverse event (stop protocol): anaphylaxis, antabuse-like reaction, device damage, severe dysphoric reaction.
Minor adverse events (do not stop protocol): nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness.
- Number of patients with proper parenteral therapy [ Time Frame: 7 days ]Verified by an Infectious Diseases Specialist
- Ratio of saved devices [ Time Frame: 15-30-60 days ]
- Time for next bacteriemic episode [ Time Frame: 30 days after the end of lock ]
