Abstract

Peritoneal dialysis-associated peritonitis (PDAP) can be treated using very different regimens of antimicrobial administration, regimens that result in different pharmacokinetic outcomes and systemic exposure levels. Currently, there is no population-level pharmacokinetic framework germane to the treatment of PDAP. We coupled a differential-equation-based model of antimicrobial kinetics to a Monte Carlo simulation framework, and conducted "in silico" clinical trials to explore the anticipated effects of different antimicrobial dosing regimens on relevant pharmacokinetic parameters (AUC/MIC and time greater than 5 ×MIC) and the level of systemic exposure.
