MicuRx added that its new agent MRX-8 is designed to overcome the limiting nephrotoxicity of current polymyxins
While all 9 isolates were senstitive to Polymyxin
displayed strong activity against Enterobacteriaceae, with susceptibility rates of>90%, except for E.

In order to deal with such situation Tigecycline, polymyxins
(colistin and polymyxinB) and Fosfomycin are considered possible candidate therapies for infections caused by CPE.
Treatment options for CRAb infections are scarce and generally employ polymyxins
