However, ceftazidime does not show activity against Neisseria sicca either with or without thioridazine.
The following species were also eliminated: Bacteroides uniformis and Parabacteroides distasonis classified as Gram(-) anaerobes; Acinetobacter freundii, Burkholderia cepacia, and Neisseria sicca (Gram(-) aerobe), as well as Staphylococcus epidermidis MSCNS (Gram(+) aerobe), which can cause opportunistic infections, including sepsis.The microflora gained the following species, Gram(+) anaerobes: Atopobium minutum and Clostridium butyricum, Gram(-) anaerobes: Capnocytophaga ochracea and Prevotella melaninogenica, Gram(+) aerobes: Microccus spp.
The flora also gained Gram(-) anaerobic bacterium Veillonella parvula, Gram(+) aerobic bacterium Streptococcus mutans, and Gram(-) aerobic bacterium Neisseria sicca. Streptococcus spp.
