BACKGROUND The extensive use of the β-lactam antibiotics in hospitals and in the community has created major resistance problems which has led to increased morbidity, mortality and healthcare costs. The use of the β-lactamase inhibitors in combination with the β-lactam antibiotics is currently the most successful strategy used for circumventing the resistance mechanisms. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the in-vitro activity of six commercially available β-lactam/β-lactamase inhibitor combinations… CONTINUE READING
