OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate in vitro the post-antibiotic effect (PAE) of 19 antibacterial agents against two strains of Bacillus anthracis (ST-1 and Sterne strains). METHODS PAE was determined by calculating the time required for the viable counts of antibiotic-exposed bacteria (at concentrations of 10x MIC and exposure for 2 h) at 37 degrees C to increase by 1 log10 above the counts observed immediately after antibiotic removal compared with the corresponding time for… CONTINUE READING
