A multicentre study of the in-vitro activity of cefotaxime, cefuroxime, ceftazidime, ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin against blood and urinary pathogens.

Abstract:

The in-vitro susceptibilities of aerobic bacteria isolated from 1804 blood and 4529 urine specimens collected at nine hospitals in the UK were examined. An agar dilution method was used to determine the MICs of each isolate to three cephalosporins, cefotaxime, cefuroxime and ceftazidime, and to two fluoroquinolones, ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin. Sensitivities were then calculated using British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy recommended breakpoints. Of the cephalosporins tested cefotaxi...
