Characterisation of in vitro-selected mutants of Ureaplasma parvum resistant to macrolides and related antibiotics.


Resistant mutants of Ureaplasma parvum were selected by serial passages of a susceptible strain in subinhibitory concentrations of different macrolides and related antibiotics (erythromycin, azithromycin, josamycin, quinupristin, quinupristin/dalfopristin, pristinamycin and telithromycin). Mechanisms of resistance were characterised by sequencing portions… (More)
