  • VetCAST position paper on clinical MIC breakpoints in veterinary medicine
  • Roadmap describing how to access, validate and organize MIC, PK, and PD data
  • Training course on PK and setting of clinical breakpoints in veterinary medicine
  • One CBP established as a proof of concept once the position paper and roadmap are in place (e.g. for tetracycline, Pasteurella multocida, pneumonia, cattle)
  • Promotion of VetCAST activities (e.g. press releases, brochures for vet conferences, articles for veterinary magazines etc.)
  • This project represents the first funding of VetCAST, and the Steering Committee believes that it can be a kickstart for VetCAST, and a booster for future activities in this EUCAST subcommittee.” The EUCAST Steering Committee congratulates VetCAST on its endeavour. ]]>
