Comparative Synergistic Activity of Nafcillin, Oxacillin, and Methicillin in Combination with Gentamicin Against Enterococci

Abstract

The effectiveness of three semisynthetic, penicillinase-resistant penicillins alone and in combination with gentamicin was tested against 29 clinical isolates of enterococci. The minimal inhibitory concentrations of nafcillin were considerably lower than those of oxacillin and methicillin but were slightly higher than those of penicillin. At clinically… (More)
