Serum levels and urinary excretion rates of sisomicin were measured after a single i.v. injection of 1 mg/kg body wt. in 24 patients with various degrees of impaired renal function. A good correlation was found between the elimination constants and the half-lives on the one hand and creatinine clearances, serum creatinine and blood urea levels on the other hand. The retention of sisomicin increases with decreasing renal function. On the basis of these results a dosage regimen for the sisomicin therapy in patients with renal insufficiency is suggested.
