Samenvatting

Favipiravir is a novel antiviral drug approved for influenza treatment in Japan. Little is known about favipiravir pharmacokinetics in critically ill patients. Here, we report a patient with influenza treated with favipiravir and undergoing continuous venovenous haemofiltration (CVVH) on the Intensive Care Unit of a tertiary hospital in the Netherlands. Pharmacokinetic analyses showed increased clearance and decreased plasma levels compared to healthy volunteers. CVVH has no clinically relevant contribution to total clearance. Despite susceptibility to favipiravir, the influenza virus was not cleared. A multi-disciplinary approach is needed to ensure optimal favipiravir treatment in critically ill patients.
