Pharmacokinetics were evaluated for piperacillin given as doses of 15, 30 and 60 mg/kg body weight to 12 healthy volunteers subdivided into three groups which were each given different dosage levels. For the 15, 30 and 60 mg/kg doses, the serum half-lives were 0.8, 1.0 and 0.9 h, and the disposition phase distribution volume coefficients, delta d. beta, 0.31, 0.30, ad 0.25 l/kg. The total body clearances for the three doses normalized to 70 kg body weight were 18.53, 14.00 and 13.53 l/h for the… CONTINUE READING
