Bacteremia With Streptococcus pneumoniae: Implications for Therapy and Prevention
Increased use of pneumococcal vaccine and recognition of antimicrobial resistance patterns may assist physicians in treating patients withS pneumoniaebacteremia.
In vitro susceptibilities of Aeromonas hydrophila to 32 antimicrobial agents
Minimal inhibitory concentrations of 32 antimicrobial agents for 20 strains fo Aeromonas hydrophila were determined by a microdilution method. Moxalactam was the most active drug tested. All strains
In vitro susceptibilities of nonfermentative gram-negative bacilli other than Pseudomonas aeruginosa to 32 antimicrobial agents.
The animal inhibitory concentrations of 32 antimicrobial agents for 322 strains of non-fermentative gram-negative bacilli, representing 30 species and unnamed groups other than Pseudomonas aeruginosa, were determined in cation-supplemented Mueller-Hinton broth with use of a microdilution method to indicate potential clinical usefulness of these agents.
Isolation of fluconazole-resistant Candida albicans from human immunodeficiency virus-negative patients never treated with azoles.
Twenty of the 37 fluconazole-resistant strains were isolated from 17 HIV-negative patients, some with systemic infections, who had never been treated with azoles, and survival was not found to be related to treatment regimen, but the number of patients was small.
Rapid identification of nonfermentative gram-negative rods by the Corning N/F system
A total of 1,298 nonfermentative gram-negative rods were used to evaluate the performance of the individual biochemical tests in the N/F System and to determine whether the observed results included
In vitro susceptibilities of four species of coagulase-negative staphylococci
There was total cross resistance among the penicillinase-resistant penicillins and cephalothin for the coagulase-negative staphylococci as well as for S. aureus; oxacillin MICs were more reliable than MICs of the other drugs or a standardized disk diffusion test for distinguishing resistant from susceptible strains.
Minimal inhibitory concentrations of 34 antimicrobial agents for control strains Escherichia coli ATCC 25922 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853
The minimal inhibitory concentrations of 34 antimicrobial agents for control strains Escherichia coli ATCC 25922 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853, as determined by a microdilution method in cation-supplemented Mueller-Hinton broth, are reported.
In vitro activities of quinolones, beta-lactams, tobramycin, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole against nonfermentative gram-negative bacilli
A review of laboratory records indicated few changes in susceptibility patterns from 1991 to 1995; the only clear trend was toward increasing P. aeruginosa resistance to all classes of drugs.
Emergence of bacterial resistance to imipenem and ciprofloxacin in a university hospital.
After eight years of use, 97-100% of Enterobacteriaceae and Acinetobacter baumannii remained susceptible to imipenem, but susceptibility of Pseudomonas aeruginosa declined from 100% to 91%.
Biotypes of serologically nontypable Haemophilus influenzae isolated from the middle ears and nasopharynges of patients with otitis media with effusion
This study indicates that future clinical or experimental investigations of chronic otitis media with effusion induced by serologically nontypable H. influenzae should focus on this clinically important biotype.
