Epidemiology and susceptibility of resistant Bacteroides fragilis group organisms to new beta-lactam antibiotics.

Abstract

The epidemiology of the Bacteroides fragilis group and the interspecies frequencies of antibiotic resistance were examined. Susceptibilities were determined for 16 beta-lactam antibiotics, including seven new compounds. Fourteen percent of 287 patients with infection due to organisms of the B. fragilis group presented with bacteremia. Infections were as… (More)
