A dose of amoxicillin is administered every 8 h to the model). The amount of drug to administer to provide each desired concentration can be calculated by Dose = V c (C 0 ) The target concentration C0 can be obtained from healthy volunteer data or from Phase III or Phase IV studies in specific populations with infections. Often the steady state C0 in serum is targeted from these studies. While it is possible that drug accumulation may occur with subsequent antibiotic doses, it often does not result in substantial accumulation that would affect the PK/ PD assessment.

In addition, the experimental or clinical circumstances under which pharmacodynamic relationships are established may bear no predictive value for every situation.
