Meanwhile, although the prognostic value of endotoxin level for bacteremia and sepsis remains disparate, less than two-thirds of patients with Gram-negative (GN) bacteremia are detected with endotoxemia and vice versa.[sup][4] Endotoxemia broadly parallels the frequency and importance of GN patient sepsis [sup][5] and is only not detected in >20% GN bacteraemic patients among the 58 studies overall or >20% studies of patients with sepsis syndrome.[sup][6] While the association of endotoxemia with bacteremia is bacterial type dependent, endotoxemia is more commonly detected in patients with bacteremia caused by non- Enterobacteriaceae than a commensal member of Enterobacteriaceae .[sup][7]

In order to avoid recruiting patients with trivial infection or patients with systemic illness misdiagnosed as infection, patients with infection and a confirmed bacteraemic episode but no organ failure were recruited.
Other aspects that were considered included breakpoints for susceptibility testing, in vitro and in vivo data for its activity against multi-drug resistant (MDR) pathogens such as carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii, Enterobacteriaceae and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, and its use in bacteraemic patients and Clostridium difficile infections (CDIs).
