BMI and surgery matched patients who receive intravenous cefotaxime
and metronidazole pre and postoperatively for 5-7 days.
The antibacterial agents tested for sensitivity were (Penicillin 1U), Ceftriaxone (30ug), Ceftazidime (30ug), Cefotaxime
(30ug), Amoxycillin - Clavulanic Acid (20/10ug), Amikacin (30ug), Piperacillin - Tazobac tam (100/10ug), Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole (1.25/23.75ug), Imipenem (10ug), Ciprofloxacin (5ug), Norfloxacin (10ug), Ofloxacin (5ug).
Given the persistence of positive blood cultures from DOL 9 to 17, cefotaxime
was added to ampicillin on DOL 17 for synergistic effect, and vancomycin was discontinued.
All the specimens were inoculated on the MacConkey agar medium containing 2mg/L cefotaxime
. The specimens from healthy individuals were directly inoculated on the media.
After co-cultivation, cotyledonary node explants were transferred to selective medium (MS + 2 mg L-1 6-BA + 2 mg L-1 AgNO3 + 300 mg L-1 cefotaxime
+ 50 mg L-1 kanamycin).
The antibiotic susceptibility disks Aztreonam (30g), Cefotaxime
(30g), Ceftazidime (30g) and Ceftriaxone (30g) were placed on Mueller Hinton agar.
was found to be maximum sensitive (Table 4) for Ciprofloxacin (83.33%) followed by Norfloxacin (83.33%), Cefotaxime
(66.66%) and Ceftriaxone (50%) but less sensitive to Amikacin, Enrofloxacin, Tobramycin, Ampicillin while resistant to Kanamycin, Amoxycillin, Cefoperazone, Cephalexin, Streptomycin and Clindamycin.
 Most of the strains showed a low sensitivity to amikacin (14.94%), gentamicin (14.29%), ampicillin + sulbactam (5.84%), piperacillin (5.84%), and cefotaxime
The highest resistance rates were noted for nalidixic acid (77.9%), followed by ampicillin (44.1%), cefotaxime
(44.1%), tetracycline (42.6%), and gentamicin (23.5%).
Culture sensitivity discs for commonly used antibiotics (cephradine, ceftazidime, cefotaxime
, cefexime, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, amikacin, tazocin, meronem and gentamicin) were used against the most commonly isolated microorganisms (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus species and Morganella morgagni).
The lyophilized microparticles obtained were evaluated based on particle size, morphology and the Cefotaxime
release in different pH conditions (pH 1.2; 4.5; and 6.8).
Objective: To compare the efficacy of single dose verses multiple doses of antibiotic (cefotaxime
) in the prophylaxis of postoperative wound infection in elective caesarian section.
Detection of ESBL activity was achieved with a double-disk synergy test, by screening isolate for synergism between amoxicillin-clavulanate and cefotaxime
, ceftriaxone, ceftazidime, and aztreonam, respectively .
Carbenicillin and cefotaxime
, which are penicillin and cephalosporin respectively, are regularly used for Agrobacterium elimination in transformed tissues.
The antibiotics included were piperacillin (100[micro]g), cefotaxime
(30[micro]g), ceftazidime (30[micro]g), cefoperazone (75[micro]g), tobramycin (30[micro]g), ceftriaxone (30[micro]g), amikacin (30[micro]g), netilmicin (30[micro]g), ofloxacin (5[micro]g), ciprofloxacin (5[micro]g), imipenem (10[micro]g), mezlocillin (75[micro]g), azlocillin (75[micro]g), ticarcillin (75[micro]g).
