Colistin Plus Rifampicin in MDR P. Aeruginosa and A. Baumanii
Randomized Controlled Trial of Colistin Versus Colistin Plus Rifampicin in MDR P.Aeruginosa and A.Baumanii

In Siriraj Hospital, Colistin alone for treatment of MDR. A.baumanii or P.aeruginosa contributed to mortality 45%. In vitro studies revealed synergism of Rifampicin and Colistin.

In this study, patients with documented MDR. P.aeruginosa or A.baumanii will be allocated to receive Colistin alone and another group will receive Colistin plus Rifampicin.
