Susceptibility of anaerobic bacteria to tosufloxacin


, : Susceptibility of anaerobic bacteria to tosufloxacin. European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases 11(3): 263-265

The in vitro activity of tosufloxacin against anaerobic cocci, Propionibacterium acnes, Clostridium perfringens, Clostridium difficile, Bacteroides fragilis, Bacteroides spp. and fusobacteria was determined by the agar dilution method. This activity was compared with that of ciprofloxacin, piperacillin, cefoxitin, imipenem, clindamycin, metronidazole and chloramphenicol. Tosufloxacin, imipenem, clindamycin, metronidazole and chloramphenicol were the most active agents tested. Tosufloxacin has an antibacterial activity that warrants investigation in clinical trials.
