A total of 598 clinical isolates of anaerobic bacteria were tested against ciprofloxacin by the agar dilution technique with 10(5) CFU on Wilkins-Chalgren medium. Selected strains representative of the six major genera of anaerobes relatively resistant to the quinolones were tested for interactions with ciprofloxacin in combination with clindamycin, metronidazole, cefoxitin, cefotaxime, or mezlocillin by using a checkerboard agar dilution technique. Cefotaxime-ciprofloxacin and clindamycin… CONTINUE READING
