Example text

The uptake of the aminoglycosides by the renal tubular cells is a saturable process. Sustained 2. ANTIMICROBIAL THERAPY high trough plasma concentrations result in greater drug accumulation and nephrotoxicosis. Dosage regimens that result in high peak concentrations and low to undetectable trough concentrations reduce the risk of nephrotoxicity. High-protein diets protect against the development of aminoglycoside nephrotoxicity. Increased dietary protein increases the glomerular filtration rate and renal blood flow, promoting aminoglycoside excretion.

The glomerular filtration rate decreases with age, as a result of progressive vascular changes in the glomeruli; therefore, renal excretion may be reduced in aged horses. 6. Elevated trough plasma concentrations. The uptake of the aminoglycosides by the renal tubular cells is a saturable process. Sustained 2. ANTIMICROBIAL THERAPY high trough plasma concentrations result in greater drug accumulation and nephrotoxicosis. Dosage regimens that result in high peak concentrations and low to undetectable trough concentrations reduce the risk of nephrotoxicity.
