Objectives: Multiple-drug resistance to Gram-negative bacteria has increased significantly in recent years. Colistin is increasingly used as a last line of defense against these bacteria. However, colistin has been associated with nephrotoxicity in experimental animals. This study explores the protective effect of dapagliflozin in a rodent model of nephrotoxicity.
