Three cases of staphylococcal bacteremia caused by organisms that were inhibited by low concentrations of oxacillin, but were resistant to the killing effects of oxacillin, stimulated us to screen 60 clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus for their susceptibility to oxacillin, cephalothin, and gentamicin. All 60 strains were inhibited by low concentrations of the antibiotics. The antibiotics were bactericidal against 27 of the 60 strains and only bacteriostatic against the other 33 after 24… CONTINUE READING
