Summary of "Correlation of the vancomycin 24-hour area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) and trough serum concentration in children with severe infection: A clinical pharmacokinetic study."

Vancomycin is a common drug used in children with severe infection. In adult, at least 15 mg/L of the optimal vancomycin trough concentration (C) is neededto generate the target 24-h area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) to theminimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 400 for a pathogen with the MIC < 1 mg/L.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A statistical means of summarizing information from a series of measurements on one individual. It is frequently used in clinical pharmacology where the AUC from serum levels can be interpreted as the total uptake of whatever has been administered. As a plot of the concentration of a drug against time, after a single dose of medicine, producing a standard shape curve, it is a means of comparing the bioavailability of the same drug made by different companies. (From Winslade, Dictionary of Clinical Research, 1992)

The maximum exposure to a biologically active physical or chemical agent that is allowed during an 8-hour period (a workday) in a population of workers, or during a 24-hour period in the general population, which does not appear to cause appreciable harm, whether immediate or delayed for any period, in the target population. (From Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)

Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.

The course of learning of an individual or a group. It is a measure of performance plotted over time.

Determination of the shortest time interval between the injection of a substance in the vein and its arrival at some distant site in sufficient concentration to produce a recognizable end result. It represents approximately the inverse of the average velocity of blood flow between two points.
