TABLE 3

Susceptibility profile of C. gilardii W2-2 for selected β-lactams, aminoglycosides, and colistin

TABLE 3
  • a The diameter (or the MIC for colistin) results shown are averages from at least three independent experiments. Interpretation of resistant (R) or sensitive (S) was performed using the Pseudomonas aeruginosa CLSI zone diameter breakpoint values (or MIC values, for colistin) (63) whenever possible. The Enterobacteriaceae breakpoint values were used for those antibiotics for which P. aeruginosa breakpoint values are not provided by CLSI (ampicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate, cefotaxime, ertapenem, kanamycin, and streptomycin) (63). The amikacin breakpoint values were also used for interpretation of spectinomycin susceptibility, for which no P. aeruginosa or Enterobacteriaceae CLSI values are available. I, intermediate.
