An in vitro study of fusidic acid susceptibility amongst isolates from conjunctival swabs.


The aim of this study was to examine the in vitro activity of fusidic acid against bacterial isolates from conjunctival swabs. Conjunctival swabs from 213 patients with conjunctivitis were examined. One or more pathogens were grown from 73 patients. Forty per cent of isolates were resistant to fusidic acid on disc sensitivity testing. Reduced sensitivity… (More)
