Kill kinetics of bacteria under fluctuating concentrations of various antibiotics. I. Description of the model.

Abstract

Traditional antimicrobial susceptibility testing uses fixed concentrations of an antibiotic over 24 hours. In order to imitate conditions closer to the actual in vivo situation we developed a model which allows us to simulate serum and tissue concentrations observed under clinical conditions in vitro. Kill kinetics and regrowth pattern of various bacteria have been investigated under the influence of different antibiotics in this kinetic model.
