Outline Meet MJ Vancomycin background The relationship between CL vanco & CL cr Comparison between methods of estimating CL vanco based on CL cr Kinetidex ® vs. Matzke method
Meet MJ 62 y/o M Height=175cm, weight = 81.8kg Relapsed AML. Received first allogeneic sibling-related stem cell transplantation in 2006 Currently admitted for a second allogeneic sibling-related transplantation from his brother (on 3/21) PMH: o Nephrectomy d/t renal cell carcinoma in March 1998 o History of benign prostate hypertrophy o History of inguinal hernia repair o History of appendectomy o History of osteonecrosis with bilateral hip replacement
Meet MJ Since 3/12 Pt on Ancef & Fortaz since 4/12 3/22: Day +1 Spiking temp: Tmax = 39.4 o C SCr: 1.03 mg/dL Hemodynamically stable Ancef and Fortaz D/C Meropenem was started Vancomycin 1,200mg IVPB Q24H was started Concurrent nephrotoxic medications: Tacrolimus 1mg daily o What is the estimated trough for this patient?
Vancomycin Background Tricyclic glycopeptide Used to treat gram-positive infections MOA: exhibits bactericidal activity by blockage of the glycopeptide polymerization in the bacterial cell wall. Largely excreted unchanged in the urine o Dose/dosing frequency needs to be adjusted for patients with reduced renal function Common adverse reactions: hyptotension, flushing, erythematous rash, and chills Serious adverse reactions: ototoxicity, nephrotoxicity
Vancomycin Pharmacokinetic Parameters Half life: –Adult with normal renal function: 8 hours –Adult with renal failure: hours –Burns: 4 hours –Obesity (>%30 over IBW): 3-4 hours Volume of distribution: 0.5 – 1 L/kg –Commonly used: 0.7L/kg
Poll Time How do you estimate CL vanco based on CL cr ? CL vanco = _________ CL cr a.100% b.80% - 99% c.70% - 89% d.60 – 69% e.59% or less f.Other
What is the relationship between the CL vanco & CL cr ?
Rodvold, K. Vancomycin pharmacokinetics in Patients with Various Degrees of Renal Function Purpose: Characterize the pharmacokinetics of vancomycin in patients with various degrees of renal function. Evaluate the influence of age, protein binding, and renal function on vancomycin distribution and elimination. Patient population: 37 adults Age Method: Pharmacokinetic parameters obtained by stripping the serum concentration-time data with RSTRIP (pharmacokinetic computer software) These estimated parameter used to generate a best fit of the data using both two- and three- compartment models Result: CL vanco = 0.79 x CL cr
Birt, JK. Using clinical data to determine vancomycin dosing parameter Patient population: –22 patients, –Unknown characteristics Method: –Geometric regression analysis used to determine the correlation between CL vanco and CL cr Results: –CL vanco = x CL cr
Burton, M.E. Evaluation of a Bayesian method for predicting vancomycin dosing. Purpose: –Evaluate the performance of a vancomycin dosing program Method: –Population estimates of vancomycin’s Vd and CL used to predict dosing. –These estimates individualized by a Bayesian algorithm that used dosing and serum vancomycin concentration Results: –Demonstrate the accuracy and lack of bias in individualized dosing predictions using the Bayesian dosing method CLvanco (mL/min/kg) =([CLcr (mL/min) x ] ); –Ability of revised pharmacokinetic parameter estimates to improve performance. CLvanco (L/hr) = CLcr (mL/min) x 0.048
Matzke, G. et. al. Pharmacokinetics of Vancomycin in Patients with Various Degrees of Renal Function Purpose o To assess the relationship between renal function and vancomycin pharmacokinetics o Develop a nomogram for vancomycin dosage in patients with various degrees of renal function Patient Population: 56 patients Age With different degrees of renal functions Method: Postinfusion log vancomycin concentration in serum-time profiles analyzed by linear least-squares regression technique Elimination rate constant and the serum concentration at the end of infusion period estimated CL s and Vd calculated based on k e and C max Result: o No significant relationship between the steady-state volume of distribution and CL CR o Observed relationship between k e and CL CR o Ke = x CL CR o Observed relationship between CL S (serum clearance) and CL CR : o CL S = x CL CR

Text books Ambrose. Basic clinical pharmacokinetics. –CL vanco (mL/min) = CL cr Bauer, L. Applied Clinical Pharmacokinetics –CL vanco (mL/min/kg) = (0.695 x CL cr [mL/min/kg]
Murphy, J. et. Al. Predictability of Vancomycin Trough Concentrations Using Seven Approaches for Estimating Pharmacokinetic Parameter Purpose: –Seven methods for estimating vancomycin pharmacokinetic parameter were studied –Determine which method best predicted measured concentrations for patients at a community teaching hospital
Murphy, J. et. Al. Patient population: –189 patients who were given vancomycin and had at least one trough vancomycin concentration measured Methods: –Data reviewed retrospectively –Patient information and data were entered into an Excel spreadsheet and steady state troughs were calculated –Precision (root mean-squared error) – how close predicted concentration are to the measured concentration –Bias (mean error) – prediction are, on average, higher or lower than the measured concentrations. Results: –The Matzke method had the best combination of the least bias and best precision. CL vanco (mL/min) = (CL cr x 0.689) –V=0.72L/kg if CL cr is >60mL/min; V=0.89L/kg if CL cr is mL/min; V=0.9L/kg if CL cr is <10mL/min

Difference between Vancomycin Pharmacokinetic models Vancomycin parameters vary among models Matzke, Bauer and practical methods yield more troughs close to measured troughs than Kinetidex ® The difference between the measured trough and estimated trough may be due to: –Trough level drawn before steady state (yield lower measured trough) –Increasing SCr (yield higher measured trough)
Kinetidex ® vs. Matzke method Kinetidex ® - Matzke equation 1 –Ke = x CLcr Matzke method – Matzke equation 2 –CL vanco (mL/min) = (CL cr x 0.689) Both from the same study

Kinetidex ® vs. Matzke Why are the ke values different? Kinetidex ® –IBW in CLcr calculation –Vd = 0.6L/kg Matzke (recommended by Murphy, et. al.) –ABW in both Vd and CLcr calculation –V=0.72L/kg if CL cr is >60mL/min; –V=0.89L/kg if CL cr is mL/min; –V=0.9L/kg if CL cr is <10mL/min

Matzke, et. al. study No height listed for patients’ demographic AdjBW or IBW not mentioned ABW assumed to be used in CL cr calculation Future investigation: clarification for which weight (ABW, IBW or AdjBW) being used in the study Average Vd reported in the study –V=0.72L/kg if CL cr is >60mL/min; –V=0.89L/kg if CL cr is mL/min; –V=0.9L/kg if CL cr is <10mL/min
Conclusion Variation in population pharmacokinetic parameters used to estimate trough level Reasonable to use parameters: Vd = 0.7L/kg and CLvanco = 70%CrCL in estimating trough level. Measured trough level still required for optimizing vancomycin therapy.
Limitation Small number of patients used in assessment. Measured trough levels may not at steady state. Bolus model used in calculation. Patient with unstable SCr –RF: 1.25mg/dL (Vancomycin start date) -> 0.88 mg/dL (trough date) –Measured trough 8.2mcg/mL vs. 15.5mcg/mL (Matzke) or 21.7 (Kinetidex) Cockroft- Gault method: is it good method to calculate CrCL for oncology patients?
