Meropenem and imipenem are often the drugs of choice for the treatment of infections due to multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii. The present study aimed at evaluating the interaction between meropenem and sulbactam through microdilution and checkerboard methods against 48 clinical isolates of A. baumannii collected from Brazilian hospitals. All the isolates presented elevated minimum inhibitory concentration (>or=2 microg/mL) to either meropenem or sulbactam. The checkerboard method… CONTINUE READING
