Earlier availability of isolated colonies on agar plates is a distinct advantage of the lysis-centrifugation system especially in cases of polymicrobic
septicaemia and enables the inoculum size to be standardized for organism identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing.
(7) Then, BV was acknowledged to have a "polymicrobic
Marchetti, "Evidence for polymicrobic
flora translocating in peripheral blood of HIV-infected patients with poor immune response to antiretroviral therapy," PLoS One, vol.
Considering the severity of the clinical picture, the possible polymicrobic
infection and the initial lack of efficacy of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, we decided to use metronidazole in combination with a broad spectrum antibiotic such as meropenem.
BCs with more than one contaminant species were considered as being a single contaminated BC.
Here we show that inhibition of the activity of GPx and catalase, two antioxidant enzymes, immediately after wounding generates chronic wounds containing spontaneously formed antibiotic-resistant polymicrobic bacterial biofilms.
Others have shown that microbial flora cultured from patients with venous leg ulcers with or without clinical symptoms is polymicrobic [16, 53].
Since the isolation of more than one organism from a single specimen of urine must always be interpreted with caution, and considering contamination, the patients whose culture results had polymicrobic
bacteriuria samples were excluded from the study.
"We want to think about community-acquired pneumonia as a polymicrobic
The sites of these infections typically contain polymicrobic
mixtures of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria.
In five patients with UTI the infection was polymicrobic
Lipsky et al (1990)  and Wheat et al (1986)  in their studies have found that infection in the diabetic foot is polymicrobic
with three to six organisms typically isolated per infection.
