A historical perspective of these pharmacological indices is provided by the review by Barger and colleagues [32]. These pharmacodynamic/pharmacokinetic parameters and their integration have been defined [35] and updated [36] to facilitate their usage. A brief review of the pharmacological indices and their integration follows. The goal of antimicrobial therapy is bacterial eradication, whereas the goal of susceptibility testing is to predict bacterial eradication [37]. Eradication can be achieved by the antimicrobial agent killing the microorganisms (bactericidal activity) or by holding their replication in check (bacteristatic activity) until the host immune system can eradicate the microorganisms.

The first is that the site of infection is an important factor in the pathogenesis of an infection. The immune response in the CNS is not sufficient to deal with pneumococcal meningitis, yet contributes greatly to the morbidity and mortality. The second is that the site of infection also is an important factor in the clinical effectiveness of antimicrobial agents. The concentrations in the cerebrospinal fluid achieved by a third-generation cephalosporin are not sufficient to provide killing of the penicillin-intermediate or penicillin-resistant pneumococci at that site [21].
