Antimicrobial susceptibility tests with cefotaxime and correlation with clinical bacteriologic response.

Abstract

Cefotaxime is a new cephalosporin with a wide spectrum of antimicrobial activity. For broth and agar dilution tests, the MIC breakpoints suggested for defining bacterial susceptibility are less than or equal to 8 microgram/ml for susceptible, 16-32 microgram/ml for moderately susceptible (indeterminate), and greater than 32 microgram/ml for resistant.
