Abstract: Pan-drug resistant Gram-negative bacteria, being resistant to most available antibiotics, represent a huge threat to the medical community. Colistin is considered the last therapeutic option for patients in hospital settings.

We determined the killing dynamics of colistin against pan-drug res…
