In saying this, the MIC range on the Phoenix PMIC/ID-78 panel is limited to just 4[micro]g/mL and, although both trimethoprim and co-trimoxazole

is a sulfonamide plus antibiotic combination of trimethoprim (5-[(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)methyl]pyrimidine-2,4-diamine) and sulfamethoxazole (4-amino-N-(5-methyl-1,2-oxazol-3-yl) benzenesulfonamide), in the ratio of 1 to 5, used in the treatment of a variety of bacterial infections.
But the addition of co-trimoxazole
, an inexpensive antibiotic, to the long-term treatment plan of those with the worst affected immune systems appears to prevent many of such deaths.
Of those who tested HIV positive, one-third benefited from life-saving HIV anti-retroviral therapy (ART) and two-thirds were enrolled on co-trimoxazole

Analysis of the 74 cases in which multiple agents had been used revealed that co-trimoxazole
