Disk diffusion using Kirby-Bauer method was used to study antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST), as described by CLSI.14 Antibiotic disc concentrations varied for AST: oxytetracycline (30 mcg), ticarcillin (85 mcg), cefipime (30 mcg), cefuroxime (30 mcg), ceftriaxone (30 mcg), norfloxacin (10 mcg), nalidixic acid (30 mcg), cefadroxil (30 mcg), amoxycillin (30 mcg), ceftazidime (30 mcg), polymixin-b (300 mcg) cefoperazone (75 mcg), co-trimoxazole (25 mcg), ampicillin (20 mcg), piperacillin (100 mcg), chloramphenicol (30 mcg), cefotaxime (30 mcg), ceftizoxime (30 mcg), ciprofloxacin (5 mcg), of loxacin (5 mcg), tetracycline (30 mcg), amikacin (30 mcg), gatifloxacin (10 mcg) and gentamicin (10 mcg).
baumannii isolates showed a higher degree of resistance to piperacillin (93.1%), aztreonam (80.5%), ticarcillin, ampicillin and tetracycline (76.4%, each) and cefotaxime (75%), except amikacin which showed low rate of resistance (40.3%).[18]
The isolates were tested for susceptibility to the following 16 antimicrobial agents (MAST Group, Merseyside, UK): ofloxacin (OFX, 5 [micro]g), ciprofloxacin (CIP, 5 [micro]g), norfloxacin (NOR, 10 [micro]g), gentamicin (GM, 10 [micro]g), amikacin (AK, 30 [micro]g), streptomycin (HLS, 10 [micro]g), tobramycin (TOB, 10 [micro]g), kanamycin (K, 30 [micro]g), ticarcillin (TIC, 75 [micro]g), cefotaxim (CTX, 30 [micro]g), ceftazidime (CAZ, 30 [micro]g), azetreonam (ATM, 30 [micro]g), imipenem (IMI, 10 [micro]g), trimethoprim (TR, 5 [micro]g), chloramphenicol (C, 30 [micro]g), and colistin (CO, 10 [micro]g).
enterocolitica intrinsic resistance to ampicillin, ticarcillin, amoxycillin-clavulanate, cefazolin, and cephalothin has been assigned by the Clinical & Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI).
aureus indicated very strong resistance to oxacillin, ticarcillin, ampicilline, amoxicillin, azlocine, chloramphenicol, mupirocin, vancomycin, cefixinme, cefuroxime, and cefotaxime.
They are resistant to (80.48%) to Ticarcillin to (75.60%) to Tetracycline, and (73.17%) to Amoxicillin.
For optimal empirical coverage, either penicillin with a [beta]-lactamase inhibitor such as amoxicillin or ticarcillin with clavulanic acid, or a [beta]-lactamase-resistant antibiotic such as cefoxitin, cefuroxime, imipenem or meropenem in combination with an anaerobic-effective antibiotic (such as clindamycin or metronidazole) are recommended (1).

The following antibiotic susceptibilities were reported: [beta]-lactams (ticarcillin, ticarcillin/clavulanate, ceftazidime, cefepime, and cefpirome); aminoglycosides (amikacin, gentamicin, isepamicin, netilmicin, and tobramycin); fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, and pefloxacin); carbapenems (imipenem and meropenem); extended-spectrum [beta]-lactams (aztreonam, piperacillin, andpiperacillin/tazobactam); sulfonamides (trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole); tetracyclines (minocycline), and polymyxins (colistin).
