Chromosomal AmpC enzymes are seen in Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter cloacae, Morganella morganii, Serratia marcescens and are inducible by antibiotics like cefoxitin and imipenem.
Methicillin resistance was detected by taking cefoxitin as a surrogate marker and was interpreted according to Clinical Laboratory Standard Institute (CLSI) breakpoints.
Methods: We studied 60 Staphylococcus aureus isolates and detected methicillin resistance by cefoxitin sensitivity and targeting of mecA gene.

Moreover, neither acquired resistance genes nor diversity of plasmids replicons were found; however, variation in the in vitro intrinsic resistant pattern was detected, except the non-resistance to cefoxitin in all strains.
The antibiotics investigated in the study included penicillins (ampicillin, carbenicillin and piperacillin), 1st generation cephalosporins (cephalothin), 2nd generation cephalosporins (cefuroxime, cefoxitin and cefaclor), 3rd generation cephalosporins (ceftriaxone, cefotaxime and ceftazidime), 4th generation cephalosporins (cefepime) carbapenems (imipenem) and monocyclic lactams (aztreonam).

For Gram-positive organisms ampicillin, cefoxitin, cefixime, azithromycin, ofloxacin, amikacin, clindamycin, amoxicillin + clavulanic acid, vancomycin, and linezolid were used.
Para ello, se sometieron las cepas a la accion de: Cefoxitin (30[micron]g/mL), mediante la prueba de difusion en disco para detectar cepas sensibles a Meticilina y posteriormente, fueron sometidas al D-test para la deteccion de resistencia inducible a la Clindamicina (2[micron]g/ mL) por Eritromicina (15[micron]g/mL).
