Experimental: Meropenem 3 hour prolonged infusion
All 30 participants will receive meropenem as a 3 hour infusion.
meropenem 40mg/kg total body weight will be administered every 8 hours. Each infusion will be infused as a 3 hour infusion.
Other Name: Merrem
- Population Pharmacokinetics - Total Body Clearance [ Time Frame: 8 hour dosing interval after 3rd meropenem dose ]Based on meropenem concentrations, the pharmacokinetics of the study population will be analyzed to determine each patient's total body clearance.
- Population Pharmacokinetics - Volume of Central Compartment [ Time Frame: During 8 hour dosing interval after 3rd meropenem dose ]Based on meropenem concentrations, the pharmacokinetics of the study population will be analyzed to determine each patient's volume of the central compartment.
- Safety [ Time Frame: 14-21 days ]This will be an intention to treat analysis of all 30 participants receiving meropenem as a 3 hour prolonged infusion. Participants will be monitored for any sign of symptom of adverse events throughout the course of the study. An adverse event will be defined as any pathologic or unintended change in the structure (signs), function (symptoms), or chemistry (laboratory values) of the body associated with the use of the study drug.
- Practicality of 3 Hour Prolonged Infusion [ Time Frame: 14-21 days ]This will be an intention to treat analysis of all 30 participants receiving meropenem as a 3 hour prolonged infusion. The Cystic Fibrosis Questionnaire-Revised (CFQ-R) will be utilized to assess patient or parent assessments of the burden of the prolonged infusion treatment. The CFQ-R will be administered at the beginning of the study and then within 7 days after completion of meropenem therapy.
- Meropenem Pharmacodynamics [ Time Frame: 14-21 days ]Meropenem exposures defined from the population model for each participant will be analyzed as a function of the isolated pathogens meropenem minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) to define the exposure of meropenem associated with an absolute and relative percent change in the Forced Expiratory Volume (FEV1).
