Hi,

I'm not involved with antimicrobial stuff, but from my PK/PD understanding if the steady state is reached, the AUC won't change over different dose intervals (except of course some interoccasion variability).
So if for dose interval 8h you propose that AUCss0-8 equals to AUCss8-16, you can just multiply it to get an average value:
AUCss0-24 = AUCss0-8 * 3

Assumptions are:
- steady state
- no autoinduction or other time-varying parameters

Kind regards,
Mittyri

To call the statistician after the experiment is done
may be no more than asking him to perform a postmortem examination:
he may be able to say what the experiment died of.    R.A. Fisher
