Combinations of ciprofloxacin with azlocillin, piperacillin and ticarcillin were tested in vitro against clinical isolates. Azlocillin plus ciprofloxacin showed synergy against 30% of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates; it was either synergistic or additive against 78% of all isolates tested even those resistant to the beta-lactam. Synergism was rarely noted(More)
Temocillin, a 6-alpha-methoxy penicillin, inhibited 90% of strains of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Citrobacter, Proteus, Providencia, Salmonella, and Shigella at a concentration of less than or equal to 16 micrograms/ml. Haemophilus influenzae and Neisseria gonorrhoea were inhibited by less than or equal to 1 microgram/ml. Changing the medium or(More)
The in-vitro activity of BMY 28142, an iminomethoxy, aminothiazolyl cephalosporin containing a methyl pyrrolidinio C-3 was compared with that of cefotaxime, ceftazidime, aztreonam, imipenem and tobramycin against various bacteria. BMY 28142 was the most active agent tested against the Enterobacteriaceae inhibiting 90% at less than or equal to 1 mg/l. The(More)
PURPOSE Knee arthroscopy is the most common orthopaedic procedure performed in the United States, and there are few randomized studies comparing local anesthesia, in conjunction with propofol, with regional anesthesia for knee arthroscopy. The purpose of the study was to test the hypothesis that patients receiving local anesthesia combined with propofol(More)
Ciprofloxacin is a fluorinated carboxyquinolone that inhibits Enterobacteriaceae, staphylococci, and Pseudomonas at low concentrations. It has poor activity against Bacteroides fragilis. In this study, the effect of administration of ciprofloxacin on bowel flora was determined in patients treated for different infections. Patients, aged 22 to 70 years, were(More)
Cefodizime, an iminomethoxy aminothiazolyl cephalosporin similar to moxalactam and ceftazidime, was less active (minimal inhibitory concentration, 1.6 to 12 micrograms) than cefazolin or cefotaxime against Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis. It inhibited Haemophilus and Neisseria spp. at less than 0.5 microgram/ml. It did not inhibit(More)
