Drs. Kaitlin Hughes, Peter Johnson and Jamie Miller co-authored "Comparison of amikacin pharmacokinetics in neonates following implementation of a new dosage protocol," which is now published in J Pediatr Pharmacol Ther 22(1): 33-40. Congratulations!

The article concluded that a modified neonatal amikacin dosage protocol resulted in increased peak amikacin serum concentration compared with published dosage recommendations. Future research should focus on determination of the optimal dosage regimen in neonates.
