The MICs of 88 quinolones against 14 selected reference and clinical strains of Mycobacterium avium-M. intracellular complex were determined. Agents tested included ciprofloxacin, sparfloxacin (PD 131501), and 86 other experimental quinolones. Test strains were selected to represent various susceptibilities to ciprofloxacin and other drug resistance profiles. MICs were determined by the microdilution method in 7HSF broth, with incubation for 14 days at 35 degrees C. The results showed 25 of the… CONTINUE READING
