By Etest determination of the susceptibilities of 229 Haemophilus influenzae strains isolated in Korea to 10 antibiotics, the isolates were found to be antibiotic nonsusceptible in the following order: ampicillin (58.1%), trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (52%), cefaclor (41.1%), clarithromycin (25.8%), chloramphenicol (14.0%), amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (13.5%), meropenem (11.7%), cefixime (10.9%), cefuroxime (9.2%), and levofloxacin (1.3%). The prevalences of each resistance class were 23.6% for… CONTINUE READING
