    We aimed to construct a novel population pharmacokinetics (PPK) model of doripenem (DRPM) for Japanese patients in intensive care unit, incorporating the clearance of DRPM by continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). Twenty-one patients treated with DRPM (0.25 or 0.5 g) by intravenous infusion over 1 h were included in the study. Nine of the 21 patients were receiving CRRT. Plasma samples were obtained before and 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 h after the first DRPM administration. PPK analysis was conducted by nonlinear mixed effects modeling using a two-compartment model. Total clearance (CLtotal) in the model was divided into CRRT clearance (CLCRRT) and body clearance (CLbody). The final model was: CLtotal (L h-1) = CLbody(non-CRRT) = 3.65 × (Ccr/62.25)0.64 in the absence of CRRT, or = CLbody(CRRT) + CLCRRT = 2.49 × (Ccr/52.75)0.42 + CLCRRT in the presence of CRRT; CLCRRT = QE × 0.919 (0.919 represents non-protein binding rate of DRPM); V1 (L) = 10.04; V2 (L) = 8.13; and Q (L h-1) = 3.53. Using this model, CLtotal was lower and the distribution volumes (V1 and V2) tended to be higher compared to previous reports. Also, Ccr was selected as a significant covariate for CLbody. Furthermore, the contribution rate of CLCRRT to CLtotal was 30-40%, suggesting the importance of drug removal by CRRT. The population analysis model used in this study is a useful tool for planning DRPM regimen and administration. Our novel model may contribute greatly to proper use of DRPM in patients requiring intensive care.
