ABSTRACT

Aim: This study sought to investigate or assessing the nephrotoxicity in patients who are administered ceftriaxone and amikacin more than 7 days. Design: A prospective observational study. Methods: All patients receiving ceftriaxone and amikacin were monitored and evaluated over 3 months. Patients who are administered in hospital receiving ceftriaxone and amikacin more than 7 days are recruited. Those patients are requested to undergo renal function test [BUN, SrCr] for assessment of kidney functioning test[RFT]. Based on the Renal function test percentage of occurring nephrotoxicity in those patients can be identified. Results: Result showed that amikacin and ceftriaxone-treated patients experienced a rise in the serum creatinine level and BUN that fit the designated definition of nephrotoxicity-i.e., an increase to at least 60 percent. Conclusion: Nephrotoxicity due to amikacin and ceftriaxone are confirmed in this present study. Therefore patients under antibiotic therapy, treatment must be done cautiously further in depth long term study is required for proving more information aimed to safer therapeutics, specially for antibiotics.

Keywords: Ceftriaxone, Amikacin, Nephrotoxicity, BUN, Serum creatinine.
