The interaction between four fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, pefloxacin, and ofloxacin) and biofilms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in wells of microtiter plates and on segments of vascular catheters were studied in an in vitro model of vascular catheter colonization. Subinhibitory concentrations (one-half, one-fourth, and one-eight of the MIC) of(More)
In this study, a series of 4-amino-5-cyano-3-substituted-2,3-dihydrothiazol-2-thiones (1a-c), as well as their triazolo and triazinopyrimidine derivatives such as 8-substituted-3-benzyl-5-methylthiazolo[5,4-e][1,2,4] triazolo[1,5-c]pyrimidin-2-thiones (4-6, 10) and 3-benzyl-5-methyl thiazolo[5,4-e]pyrimidino[3,4-b][1,2,4]triazin-2-thiones (7a-b) were(More)
The in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility of Yersinia enterocolitica and newly related species isolated from foods was examined. Only 4 of 375 isolates displayed resistance to non-ss-lactam antibiotics. MICs of ampicillin and carbenicillin determined by agar dilution with respect to 125 isolates showed the high susceptibility of Y. kristensenii and biovar 3(More)
The synthesis and spectral analysis of some new 1,3-dihydro-3-hydroxy-3-[2-hydroxyimino-2-(substituted phenyl)ethyl]-2H-indol-2-ones (21-32) and spiro[3H-indol-3,5'-(4'H)-isoxazol]-2(1H)-ones (33-44) are described. Sixteen of the synthesized compounds were screened in vitro for their growth inhibitory activity against thirteen species of microorganisms,(More)
Strains of Yersinia kristensenii display high susceptibility to carbenicillin (MIC90 less than 8 micrograms/ml) in comparison with the majority of environmental strains of Yersinia closely related to Y. enterocolitica which are resistant to this antibiotic (MIC90 greater than 256 micrograms/ml). beta-lactamases of 39 strains of Y. kristensenii isolated from(More)
