From January 1997 to July 1999, a total of 867 isolates of Haemophilus influenzae were recovered in the microbiology laboratory of Chiba Children's Hospital. The overall prevalence of beta-lactamase production was 12.8%. Ampicillin-MICs for all of the 111 beta-lactamase-producing isolates was > or =4 microg/ml. A total of 26 beta-lactamase-negative isolates (3.4% of all beta-lactamase-negative isolates and 3.0% of all isolates) were found to be resistant to ampicillin. The prevalence of beta… CONTINUE READING
