The reaction of Lu with potassium ferricyanide (K3Fe(CN)6) has been used for the detection of mezlocillin
sodium  and ceftezole sodium  whereas, with periodate(IO4) for amikacin sulfate  and vitamin A  and with potassium permanganate (KMnO4) for fenpyroximate , azoxystrobin  and thyroxine (in micellar medium) .
Shortly before the intervention, all patients received 2 g intravenous mezlocillin
Susceptibility and resistance pattern were performed on each of 52 isolates by using agar disc diffusion method on Mueller-Hinton agar described by Kirby Bauer method (11) according to the recommendations of the NCCLS 12and by using the following antibiotics: Amoxicillin (AML), Erythromycin (ERY), Nalidixic acid (NA), Ceftazidime (CAZ), Ciprofloxacin (CIP), Aztreonam (ATM), Mezlocillin
(MEZ) Imipenem (IPM), Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol (STX),Tetracycline (TET), Amikacin (AK), Gentamycin (GEN), Piperacillin (PIP), and Levofloxacin (LVX).
The following antibiotics were included: amoxicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (AMC), piperacillin, piperacillin-tazobactam (TZP), mezlocillin
, mezlocillin-sulbactam (MSU), cefazolin, cefuroxime, ceftriaxone, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, cefoperazone, cefoperazone-sulbactam (CSL), cefepime, aztreonam, moxalactam, imipenem, meropenem, panipenem, ertapenem, gentamycin, amikacin, tetracycline, minocycline, tigecycline, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, nitrofurantoin, fosfomycin, polymyxin B, and colistin.
High antibiotic resistance in decreasing order was observed in amp/sulbactam, mezlocillin
167 (82.7%), piperacillin 160 (79.2%), trimeth/sulfa 143 (70.8%), cefazolin 139 (68.8%), cefepime 130 (64.4%), cefuroxime 129 (63.9%), cefpodoxime 127 (62.9%), aztreonam 126 (62.4%), ceftazidime 124 (61.4%), and tobramycin 108 (53.5%).
Commonly used antibiotics are ceftazidime, carbenicillin indanyl sodium, gentamicin sulfate, imipenem, mezlocillin
and piperacillin sodium.
coli resulted in a significant decrease in susceptibility to a broad array of P-lactams [ampicillin, carbenicillin, piperacillin, mezlocillin
, cefotaxime, cefoxitin, ceftazidime, cefoperazone, cefepime, and carbapenems], revealing a very broad substrate specificity of the VIM-1 enzyme.
sodium and sulbactam sodium (4:1) and ribavirin were administered, but the patient did not improve.
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).
The older antipseudomonal penicillins (carbenicillin, ticarcillin) have largely been replaced by newer compounds (piperacillin, mezlocillin
, azlocillin) which are thought to be more potent in vitro against P.
