Abstract:

We investigated the impact of breakpoint discrepancies between CLSI and EUCAST on susceptibility interpretation of clinical isolates at the Microbiology Laboratory, Mahosot Hospital, Vientiane, Laos and performed a literature search to compare our findings to published reports. Zone diameters for first-line antimicrobial agents tested against non-duplicate clinical isolates of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in 2017 were interpreted separately using EUCAST 2...
