Single daily dosing of amikacin in an in-vitro model.

The pharmacodynamics of amikacin given as a single daily dose was compared with standard divided dosing in an in-vitro model of infection. This model allows the exposure of log phase bacteria to changing concentrations of antibiotics that simulate the kinetics of the drugs in human patients. Two strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, one sensitive and one… CONTINUE READING
