The effects of antimicrobial combinations against ceftazidime-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains isolated from hospitalized patients were investigated. Using the checkerboard titration method, combination of fosfomycin-gentamicin, fosfomycin-ceftazidime, fosfomycin-imipenem and ceftazidime-gentamicin was synergistic against 4, 11, 38 and 39% of 22, 18, 29 and 18 strains tested respectively and additive effect of the combinations against the strains tested was 41, 33, 14 and 44… CONTINUE READING
