Specialists or physicians in training in infectious diseases, clinical microbiology and other disciplines dealing with the prudent use of antibiotics, clinical pharmacology, drug development, regulatory issues and health-care policies.

Conference Objectives
This conference presents and summarizes currently available knowledge regarding the clinical use of some off-patent antibiotics and will discuss gaps of knowledge and future areas of research as well as how breakpoints may have to be reviewed, how dosing and administration of the agents may have to change, guidelines revised, and what the implications for regulatory issues may be. The key ambition is to explore ways to better preserve the efficacy of these agents in an era of escalating multi-drug resistance.
