Colistin availability

Colistimethate is widely available in European countries. Fifteen companies distribute intravenous colistin products in one or several European countries whereas one company produces the active pharmaceutical ingredient and finished dosage forms as lyophilized and dry-filled vials. Colistin products for injection or infusion are available with strength of one and/or two Million International Units (U. Theuretzbacher 2013).

A recent global survey revealed that polymyxins are available in most countries worldwide but still not always available to the physician when needed (H Wertheim et al 2013).
