Workshop on Companion Animal Antimicrobials

AAVPT/USP Joint Workshop

Exploration of Developmental Approaches to Companion Animal Antimicrobials: Providing for the Unmet Therapeutic Needs of Dogs and Cats

White paper from workshop:

M. Apley, R. Claxton, C. Davis, I. DeVeau, J. Donecker, A. Lucas, A. Neal, and M. Papich, "Exploration of developmental approached to companion animal antimicrobials: provding for the unmet therapeutic needs of dogs and cats" Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, 33:196-201, 2010. 

In order to facilitate conversation and incorporate input from all participants, the workshop utilized small break-out groups with various antimicrobial drug scenarios used as thought-provoking measures. The specific summaries from each break-out group for each scenario were developed and are now available on this website.

The USP representatives provided an overview of the development of USP veterinary clinical drug information monographs that provide evidence- and consensus-based support for the use of antimicrobials in animals, utilizing a public process that includes evaluating the strength of evidence.
