|Abstract:||Melioidosis is a fatal community-acquired infection endemic in tropical areas. Ten isolates of the causative microorganism were subjected to time-kill study using a range of ceftazidime concentrations. This study demonstrated that a ceftazidime concentration of eight times the minimum inhibitory concentration yielded an optimal bactericidal effect and should be the target concentration administered by continuous infusion. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. and the International Society of Chemotherapy.
