Because fluoroquinolones are one of the most commonly used antibiotics associated with a greater risk for CDI in humans, we did not use moxalactam and norfloxacin (a fluoroquinolone) supplementation as has been previously done in other culture studies because its use seems to introduce selection bias towards fluoroquinolone-resistant isolates as early noticed [5, 6,14].
Other [beta]-lactam antibiotics have also been employed, e.g., sulbenicillin (Zhang et al., 2000), augmentin (Ieamkhang and Chatchawankanphanich, 2005), meropenem and moxalactam (Ogawa and Mii, 2007).
