Dear all,

The PK / PD indexes are already well discussed in the literature, although they still present divergent points about the best index to be used for a given antimicrobial.

When we use the fAUC0-24 / MIC index, we have the concentration determined for 24 hours in single dose studies. But when we use only multi-dose antimicrobial in clinical practice, for example, every 6 or 8 or 12 hours, how can we evaluate this index if it mentions 0-24? Or should we do the collection experiment for 24 hours, even if this interval in no way represented sufficient exposure in the clinic? How can we evaluate this Pk/PD index for multiple dosing with intervals shorter than 24/24 hr? I'm confused. Could someone clarify this?

Thank you very much.
