The isolates were further screened for high-level aminoglycoside resistance by their ability to grow on Muller Hinton agar containing amikacin and gentamicin 256 mg/L each as a marker for 16S RMTase (3).
First isolated in the 1950s, several aminoglycoside antibiotics like neomycin were developed over the ensuing decades.
Our study population was made up of 164 newborns who were divided into three groups: group A consisted of 105 infants who were given aminoglycoside therapy (either gentamicin or amikacin, or a combination of the two) as treatment for suspected or proven bacterial infection and septic states; group B included 30 newborns who were not given an antibiotic or who were given an antibiotic other than an aminoglycoside; group C, a control group, was made up of 29 healthy neonates who were hospitalized in the well-baby nursery.

Unlike the beta-lactams and quinolones, which utilize porin channels to cross the outer membrane to get to their target, the aminoglycosides bind to the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on the outer membrane surface, increasing the permeability of the membrane so that the aminoglycoside can get to the cytoplasmic membrane.
