The postantibiotic effect of imipenem: relationship with drug concentration, duration of exposure, and MIC.

The postantibiotic effect (PAE) of imipenem against Escherichia coli was measured at a wide variety of drug concentrations and times of exposure. We observed that the area under the concentration-time curve of drug exposure (AUC), the product of time of exposure and concentration of drug, is a much better predictor of the duration of the PAE than either… CONTINUE READING
