Synergistic effect of amoxicillin and cefotaxime against Enterococcus faecalis.

The antibacterial efficacy of the combination of amoxicillin and cefotaxime was assessed against 50 clinical strains of Enterococcus faecalis. For 48 of 50 strains, the MIC of amoxicillin that inhibited 50% of isolates tested decreased from 0.5 microgram/ml (range, 0.25 to 1 microgram/ml) to 0.06 microgram/ml (range, 0.01 to 0.25 microgram/ml) in the… CONTINUE READING
