OBJECTIVES To examine the prevalence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) urinary Escherichia coli among US outpatients and to assess the antimicrobial activity of oral antibiotics commonly used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs) against MDR isolates. METHODS Antimicrobial susceptibility testing data from outpatient urine cultures in The Surveillance Network (TSN) Database USA were analysed. Six antimicrobial agents from six separate drug classes were included: ampicillin, cefalotin… CONTINUE READING
