The resistance to antimicrobial agents among staphylococci is an increasing problem. This has led to renewed interest in the usage of macrolide-lincosamide-streptogramin B (MLSB) antibiotics to treat Staphylococcus aureus infections. In vitro routine tests for clindamycin susceptibility may fail to detect inducible clindamycin resistance thus necessitating… CONTINUE READING
