Abstract

These results show that amikacin elimination and the volume of distribution are dependent upon GA, and that differential renal maturation in neonates is responsible for the wider PK interindividual variability with high GA. Dosage regimens of amikacin and other aminoglycosides should be revised in newborns with high GA. Bayesian adaptive control of therapeutics might be particularly indicated to obtain efficacy for each neonate as early as the first dose.
