A Multidrug Efflux Pump Inhibitor Reduces Fluoroquinolone Resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolates
In general, resistance to fluoroquinolones (FQs) in gram-negative bacteria is acquired either by mutations in DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV or by active export of the agents via antibiotic effluxExpand
