The cdeA gene, cloned from Clostridium difficile clinical strain 714 under the control of its natural promoter made Escherichia coli and Clostridium perfringens resistant to ethidium bromide and acriflavin but had no effect on the susceptibility of the hosts to the following antibiotics: norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, erythromycin, tetracyclin, and(More)
A total of 198 nonrepetitive clinical strains of Clostridium difficile isolated from different French hospitals in 1991 (n = 100) and 1997 (n = 98) were screened for decreased susceptibility to fluoroquinolones by plating onto Wilkins-Chalgren agar containing 16 micro g of ciprofloxacin per ml. The frequency of decreased susceptibility was 7% (14 of 198)(More)
