Empirical Treatment of CAPD-Associated Peritonitis: ID Perspective

A recent AJKD article by Kitrungphaiboon et al explored whether cefepime monotherapy, as an empirical treatment of CAPD-associated peritonitis, has noninferior efficacy for the resolution of peritonitis at day 10 (primary treatment response) compared to the conventional combination regimen of cefazolin plus ceftazidime.

AJKD’s Social Media Editor, Timothy Yau @Maximal_Change, recorded an interview with his ID colleagues, Gerome Escota @MDdreamchaser and Andrej Spec @FungalDoc, to learn more about this issue:
