In the article titled “Application of PK/PD Modeling in Veterinary Field: Dose Optimization and Drug Resistance Prediction” [1], there was an error in Table . Some antibiotic groups were not correctly classified in Table as raised by Benini and Fumagalli in [2]. The correct statement is that ketolides exhibit concentration-dependent killing and have prolonged persistence and the PK/PD indices responsible for efficacy are AUC24/MIC. Clindamycin and vancomycin exhibit time-dependent killing and have moderate to prolonged persistence and PK/PD indices responsible for efficacy are AUC24/MIC. The corrected table is shown as follows (see Table 3).

Table 3: Classification of antibacterial drugs according to pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics indices: different groups of antibacterials, their bacterial effect, and PK/PD integration most closely related their clinical effect.
