At the University of Illinois Hospital, antibiotic susceptibility testing was retrospectively performed on 254 stored clinical methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates cultured from 1985 through 1990 to characterize resistance to ciprofloxacin and other antibiotics. In case-control analyses, inpatients with and without ciprofloxacin-resistant strains were compared. Ciprofloxacin-resistance increased from 7% before 1988 to 83% in 1990. A sudden increase in resistance to… CONTINUE READING
