Comparison of agar dilution, microdilution, E-test, and disk diffusion methods for testing activity of cefditoren against Streptococcus pneumoniae.


This study evaluated the susceptibility of pneumococci to cefditoren by agar dilution and microdilution methods (both in air) and by E-test (AB Biodisk, Solna, Sweden) and disk diffusion methods (both in CO(2)). By the three MIC tests, the MICs at which 50 and 90% of isolates were inhibited (MIC(50)s and MIC(90)s) were, respectively, as follows (in… (More)
