Time-kill kinetic studies of ampicillin/sulbactam for beta-lactamase-producing enterococci.


beta-Lactamase-producing (Bla+) enterococci have now been reported from several geographic areas. Most of these strains also demonstrate high-level aminoglycoside resistance, making therapy of serious infections due to Bla+ enterococci difficult. Using time-kill kinetic studies, we evaluated the activity of ampicillin-sulbactam (Am/SB) against five clinical… (More)
