In this study measurements were made of the minimal inhibitory concentrations of 6 cephalosporins (cefamandole, cefuroxime, cefadroxil, cefoxatin and cefotaxime in comparison with cefalothin) against 532 bacterial strains isolated at the Regional Hospital Centre, Nantes, France, between 15.12.1977 and 15.3.1978. There were 163 Gram-positive bacteria of 2 species and 369 Gram-negative bacilli of 11 species and different genera. The results have been produced in the form of cumulative curves, in… CONTINUE READING
