Pharmacodynamics is the study of the biochemical and physiological effects of drugs on the body. With an absence of new antibiotics in the pipeline to address increasing resistance among gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, new strategies are needed to retain utilization of currently available agents. As recommended in current guidelines for antimicrobial stewardship, dosage optimization through consideration of antibiotic pharmacodynamics provides a formidable approach to making good antibiotics better. Knowledge of the relationship between antibiotic concentration to microbiological potency and its effect on antibacterial activity leads to the design of dosing regimens that optimize killing of bacteria in the clinical setting.
Scholarly journals are generally academic journals that encourage academic and scientific research. These journals generally prefer to publish original works, conducted following a systematic research methodology. The articles published in the scholarly journals are critically evaluated following in-depth analysis of the research data. Scholarly Journal articles strictly adhere to a standard format of writing.
