pneumoniae according to CLSI were assessed for gentamicin (10 [micro]g), aztreonam (30 [micro]g), cefepime (30 [micro]g), cefotaxime (30 [micro]g), cefixime (10 [micro]g), ceftazidime (30 [micro]g), ceftizoxime (30 [micro]g), ciprofloxacin (5 [micro]g), ceftriaxone (30 [micro]g), imipenem (10 [micro]g), and meropenem (30 [micro]g) (Mast, London, UK), determined by the disk diffusion method.

Fewer than 0.5% of patients were treated with a regimen suggesting treatment of a patient with a cephalosporin allergy (e.g., azithromycin plus either gentamicin or gemifloxacin) or a patient with a complicated gonococcal infection (e.g., azithromycin plus either cefotaxime or ceftizoxime).

(10) Antimicrobial disks (Mast, Bootle, UK) used for the susceptibility test included chloramphenicol (30 [micro]g), ciprofloxacin (5 [micro]g), gentamicin (10 [micro]g), nalidixic acid (30 [micro]g), tetracycline (30 [micro]g), trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX, 25 [micro]g), streptomycin (10 [micro]g), ampicillin (10 [micro]g), cefoxitin (30 [micro]g), amikacin (30 [micro]g), ceftizoxime (30 [micro]g), cefotaxime (30 [micro]g) and cefepime (30 [micro]g).
The following antimicrobial discs were used; ciprofloxacin (5 [micro]g), erythromycin (15 [micro]g), cloxacillin (30 [micro]g), vancomycin (30 [micro]g), ceftizoxime (30 [micro]g), ampicillin (10 [micro]g), penicillin (10 [micro]g), methicillin (5 [micro]g), amikacin (30 [micro]g), cefoxitin (30 [micro]g), oxacillin (1 [micro]g), and gentamicin (10 [micro]g).
