Comparison of the bactericidal activity of clindamycin and metronidazole against cefoxitin-susceptible and cefoxitin-resistant isolates of the Bacteroides fragilis group.

Abstract

Time-kill kinetic methodology was used to evaluate the bactericidal activity of cefoxitin, cefotetan, clindamycin, and metronidizole against cefoxitin-susceptible and cefoxitin-resistant isolates of the Bacteroides fragilis group. Overall, metronidazole was the most bactericidal agent, with all isolates being killed with less than or equal to 4 micrograms… (More)
