Effect of clindamycin on cytotoxin production by Clostridium difficile.

Abstract

A total of 80 strains of Clostridium difficile, 33 toxigenic and 11 nontoxigenic clindamycin (CLDM)-sensitive (MIC less than 12.5 micrograms/ml), and 23 toxigenic and 13 nontoxigenic CLDM-resistant (MIC 200 to 6,400 micrograms/ml) were tested for cytotoxin production in the presence of CLDM. None of the 24 nontoxigenic strains produced cytotoxin regardless… (More)
