Example text

In this chapter, we will discuss the meaning of S, I, and R in a historical context as well as provide the current view, based on PK–PD 21 22 Mouton et al. relationships. Both the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) (3) and the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute [CLSI, formally known as the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS)] consider PK–PD data in the selection of susceptibility breakpoints (4). HISTORY Initially, isolates were categorized as S or R largely based on MIC frequency distributions.

48. In the case of the cephalosporins with very low protein binding, ceftazidime, cefpirome, and cefotaxime all display values of 38% to 40% T>MIC, while if total concentrations of ceftriaxone, with a protein binding of 76% in mice, is considered, values needed are in the order of 70%. If the unbound fraction of ceftriaxone is considered, the effect is consistent with the other cephalosporins. Similarly, the AUC/MIC ratio needed for static effect of the highly protein-bound quinolones gemifloxacin and garenoxacin is comparable to that of the other quinolones only when the unbound fraction of the drug is taken into account.
