Background: Levofloxacin, a fluoroquinolone, is an isomer of ofloxacin with an extensive spectrum of antimicrobial efficacy. In common with other fluoroquinolones, the main pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) index that correlates with its therapeutic efficacy is the area under the plasma time-concentration curve (AUC)/the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) ratios. Objective: To evaluate the population PK and determine the efficacy of various dosage regimens in achieving the probability of target attainment (PTA) and the cumulative fraction of response (CFR) of oral levofloxacin when prescribed as the switching therapy after intravenous levofloxacin treatment...
