Aeruginosa, is patient outcome associated with reduced piperacillin-tazobactam MICs? ” In Chapter 1 of this volume, Wikler and coauthors define this parameter and the necessary evidence to establish it. Simply stated, each antimicrobial agent/drug pair is dependent on the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) properties of the antiinfective compound and the associated clinical outcome. Specific parameters that are pertinent to evaluating the PK/PD are the area under the curve of Cmax (peak) and above the resulted bug–drug MIC, and the time duration that Cmax is greater than the MIC (Fig.

In Chapter 1, Wikler and colleagues explore and discuss the reasoning/­rationale for defining the “breakpoint,” the dividing quantitative line between susceptibility and resistance that is the underpinning of antibacterial susceptibility tests. The question posed here is how successful are these results in predicting a positive outcome in patients with infection. ” Resistance as determined by in vitro testing is considered in these studies to be an independent risk factor for therapeutic failure.

As antibiotic resistance mechanisms among pathogenic microorganisms, especially the Enter­obacteriaceae, are discerned, there is compelling need to rapidly and definitively identify them. Advanced diagnostics employing molecular methods is considered to be a key driver to improve therapeutic outcome—molecular arrays and NGS are key to providing the most promising opportunities.
