The E-Test is a recently introduced method for performing antimicrobial susceptibility tests. We compared the E-Test to the broth microdilution test and to the standard agar dilution test by using five antimicrobial agents tested against 55 clinical isolates of Campylobacter jejuni from 11 locations in USA (group 1). Later, we selected 30 strains (group 2), which were more resistant than the original survey isolates. Erythromycin, tetracycline, and ciprofloxacin were tested on both groups of… CONTINUE READING
