Antimicrobial Pharmacometrics: Mathematical Models for Antimicrobial Research and Development
In this talk, Dr Yu-Wei Lin introduced different antimicrobial pharmacometric techniques and highlighted the usefulness of pharmacometric analyses in antimicrobial research.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become one of the greatest global threats to human health and the World Health Organization (WHO) has called for global action to tackle this crisis with the utmost urgency. If no proactive solutions are found, by 2050 it is estimated that AMR will cost the world an additional 10 million lives every year and incur a cumulative loss of US$100 trillion .
The world now faces an enormous and growing threat from the emergence of bacteria that are resistant to almost all current antibiotics. In this context, the field of pharmacometrics using mathematical models has, in recent years, emerged as an invaluable tool in academia, industry and regulatory agencies to facilitate the integration of preclinical and clinical data and to provide a scientifically based framework for designing and optimising dosing regimens.
In this talk, Dr Yu-Wei Lin will introduce different antimicrobial pharmacometric techniques and highlight the usefulness of pharmacometric analyses in antimicrobial research.
