  • Studies needed to characterize your compound
  • Points to consider if your compound is not typical

Presentation 2: Pitfalls and opportunities of susceptibility testing in clinical trials of new antibiotics (Rafael Cantón)

  • The introduction of new antimicrobials needs antimicrobial susceptibility testing to define their profile and the alignment with regulators.
  • Susceptibility testing data are also used to define both clinical and PK/PD breakpoints.
  • Moreover, they can be used to recognize wild type populations and anticipate emergence or resistance.
