Sensitive and specific phenotypic assay for metallo-beta-lactamase detection in Enterobacteria by use of moxalactam
disk supplemented with EDTA.
Randomized, double-blind comparison of ceftazidime and moxalactam
in complicated urinary tract infections.
Brucella canis infection in a 17-monthold child successfully treated with moxalactam
. J Pediatr.
and Nalidixic acid Cefotetan 2 Gram-positive strains 10 Acriflavine 5 Listeria monocytogenes Fosfomycin 10 400 (CH) Moxalactam
15 Listeria spp.
Carbapenems were the most potent agents against the Enterobacteriaceae isolates, followed by moxalactam
, tigecycline, and amikacin.
The samples were observed day by day, during the period of enrichment, and when turbid, it was sowed in selective agars, Moxalactam
, Oxford, Aloa and Hicrome.
Evaluation of three techniques for detection of low-level methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (mrsa): A disk diffusion method with cefoxitin and moxalactam
, the vitek 2 system, and the mrsa-screen latex agglutination test.
Susceptibility to the following antibiotics penicillin G, cefoxitin, moxalactam
, kanamycin, amikacin, tobramycin, gentamicin, erythromycin, lincomycin, tetracycline, pristinamycin, furans, ofloxacin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, rifampicin, fusidic acid, fosfomycin, mupirocin, high mupirocin, vancomycin, teicoplanin, and linezolid was determined according to the recommendations of the Committee for Antimicrobial Testing of the French Society of Microbiology (CASFM) (http://www.sfm-microbiologie.org/) 10].
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).
Comparison of oxacillin cefoxitin, ceftizoxime, and moxalactam
disk diffusion methods for detection of methicillin susceptibility in staphylococci.
