Comparative in vitro activities of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and imipenem against anaerobic bacteria isolated from community hospitals.


The susceptibilities of recent clinical isolates of anaerobic bacteria from two community hospitals were determined. Thirty percent of pigmented Bacteroides species and bile-sensitive, nonpigmented Bacteroides species produced penicillinase and were resistant to amoxicillin. Cefoxitin and clindamycin showed good activity against most strains, with the… (More)
