Special Issue "Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics Analysis of Veterinary Antimicrobial Agents"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2022) | Viewed by 3031
Irrational use of antimicrobial drugs in animals may result in the development and spread of bacterial resistance, which threatens human and animal health. The pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) model can link pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics to evaluate and predict dose–concentration–response relationships. PK/PD model is an effective way of optimizing the dosage regimen to guide clinical use and prevent the emergence of resistance. The PK/PD model has been applied in veterinary antimicrobial drugs for two decades, playing a vital role in the rational use of antimicrobial drugs. This Special Edition on One Health between human and animals focuses on the PK/PD model in veterinary antimicrobial drugs in primary care and will consist of 10–15 manuscripts, which may include original research, review articles, case series, and opinion papers. We are interested in both qualitative and quantitative research across the following areas:
- Application of the PK/PD model in the research and development of new drugs (e.g., preclinical PK/PD, translational PK/PD);
- Optimization of dosage regimen through the PK/PD model (e.g., PK/PD parameters, combination);
- Establishment of clinical breakpoint and PK/PD cutoff;
- Prevention and treatment of drug-resistant bacteria (e.g., HFIM,MSW).
