Pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) analysis is of central importance to the progress of an antifungal agent into clinical use. It is crucial to ensure that preclinical studies give the best possible prediction of the way drugs are likely to behave in a clinical setting. This review details the last 30 years of progress in terms of disease model design, efficacy outcome selection and translational modelling in antifungal PK-PD studies. The principles of how PK-PD parameters inform current clinical practice are also discussed, including a review of how these apply to existing and novel agents.
