Activities and postantibiotic effects of gemifloxacin compared to those of 11 other agents against Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis.

Abstract

The activity of gemifloxacin against Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis was compared to those of 11 other agents. All quinolones were very active (MICs, </=0.125 microgram/ml) against 248 quinolone-susceptible H. influenzae isolates (40.7% of which were beta-lactamase positive); cefixime (MICs, </=0.125 microgram/ml) and amoxicillin… (More)
