Most of the multidrug resistant isolates were sensitive to Polymyxins B, Tazocin and Fusidic acid
aureus resistance rates to fusidic acid
, widely used outside of the United States, vary greatly among studies and demonstrate the importance of knowing local resistance patterns.
in the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
As recommended by the EUCAST, fusidic acid
MIC values of [less than or equal to] 1 [micro]g/mL and > 1 [micro]g/mL were set as signifying susceptible and resistant types, respectively.
has completed the acquisition of fusidic acid
from Melinta Therapeutics, the company said.
Novel therapeutics company Arrevus Inc revealed on Tuesday the completion of the acquisition of fusidic acid

The following genes conferring resistance to the respective antibiotics were screened: blaZ (penicillin), mupA, ileS (mupirocin), aac(6')-aph(2") (gentamicin), ermA, ermB, ermC, msrA (erythromycin), vanA, vanB (vancomycin), cfr (linezolid), tetA, tetB (tetracycline), and fusB, fusC, fusD (fusidic acid
In our study, it was observed that in 55 (36.9%) of patients topical steroid preparations were used as monotherapy whereas in 94 (63%) of patients topical steroids were combined with salicylic acid, gentamycin, clotrimazole, and fusidic acid
as shown in Table 5.
A comparison between the effectiveness of erythromycin, single-dose clarithromycin and topical fusidic acid
in the treatment of erythrasma.
The report of CST of the urine sample after 48 hours of aerobic incubation revealed the causative organism to be Proteus spp giving sensitivity (+++) to Amoxyclav, Amoxycillin/ Sulbactam, Ampicillin/Sulbactam, Ampicillin/ Cloxacillin, Amikacin, Cefoxitin, Ceftrioxone/ Sulbactam, Cefuroxime, Co-Trimoxazole, Ceftazidime/ Calvulanic acid, Cefoperazone, Cefoperazone/ Sulbactam, Cephalexin, Imipenem, Fusidic Acid

This might be explained by considering that, in previous studies , fusidic acid
(0.3-300 [micro]M) was shown to stimulate the MRP2 transporter (canalicular efflux) in vitro, as indicated by the increased efflux of LTC4 (leucotriene C4) using MRP2 transfected membrane vesicles.
Courtney and Merlin12 reported chronic PS development in 13% of patients after incision, curettage, and 2% local fusidic acid
