Special Issue "Advances in the Knowledge of Efficacy and Prudent Use of Antimicrobials and Anthelmintics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Interests: veterinary pharmacology; pharmacokinetics; antimicrobials and anthelmintic of veterinary use; drug–drug interactions
Antimicrobials and anthelmintics are the most common veterinary medicines used to treat or prevent animal diseases. Indiscriminate and inappropriate use of these drugs can lead to the selection of resistant strains, which may imply a risk to animal or human health, also impacting the environment. This problem becomes even more important in farm animals, in which there is the possibility that small amounts of drugs or their metabolites remain in those animal products that enter the food chain. In the last decade, increasing efforts have been made to promote the prudent use of antimicrobial and anthelmintic drugs in veterinary medicine.
Original research papers on Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics that contribute to ensuring and improving the knowledge on the efficacy of these drugs in veterinary clinical practice, as well as those related to the design of appropriate dosage regimes, drug consumption, rational use of medicines, or others related to this topic are needed. Review articles are also welcome for this Special Issue.
