[Phenotypes of resistance to antibiotics of Acinetobacter baumannii. Impact on therapeutic orientation].


By studying the sensitivity to antibiotics of 74 Acinetobacter baumannii strains, four phenotype groups were distinguished. The resistance of one of them (11% of the strains) to imipenem, argues against the therapeutic attitudes that now prevail. From studies on the kinetics of bactericidal activity of antibiotics and there association we propose what… (More)
