The screening for carbapenem resistance was performed by meropenem and imipenem discs, and minimum inhibitory concentrations.
ETX2514 exhibited particularly promising activity in combination with sulbactam against Acinetobacter baumannii, including hard-to-treat carbapenem-resistant and colistin-resistant strains, and with imipenem against carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
For Gram-negative bacilli ampicillin, cefixime, ceftriaxone, cotrimoxazole, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, gentamicin, amikacin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, cefoperazone-sulbactam, piperacillin-tazobactam, and Imipenem were used.
The antibiotics tested for sensitivity were Gentamicin (30ug), Amikacin (30ug), Imipenem (10ug), Tazobactam (110ug), Septran (25ug), Fosfomycin (50ug), Nitrofurantoin (300ug), Tobramycin (30ug), Amoxacillin/clavulinic acid 2:1(30ug), Cefixime (30ug), Cefuroxime (30ug), Cefradine(30ug), Cefoperazone(75ug), Ceftriaxone (30ug), Cefotaxime (30ug), Ceftazidime (30ug), Ciprofloxacin (5ug), Ofloxacin (5ug), Levofloxacin (5ug) and Moxifloxacin (5ug).
Identification and susceptibility testing of Enterobacteriaceae was carried out primarily with the Vitek 2 system (bioMerieux, France) using the GN and N133 cards, respectively, supplemented where necessary with E-test (bioMerieux) to confirm the MICs of ertapenem, imipenem and meropenem.
The selected antibiotics for antibiogram Chloramphenicol 30mg (C30), Imipenem 10mg (IPM10), Gentamycin10mg (CN10), Ciprofloxacin10mg (CIP10), Nalidixic acid30mg (NA30), ampicillin 25mg (AM25), Amoxycillin 30mg (AMC30) and Cefotaxime10mg(CTX10mg) that were commonly used in pneumonia treatment, Isolates were categorized as resistant, susceptible and intermediate [18].
The most commonly used agents were IV amikacin (n = 9, 43%), macrolides (n = 18, 86%), and imipenem (n = 7, 33%) (Table 1).
The antibacterial sensitivity pattern of isolated NFGNB as a pathogen showed that 95% of P aeruginosa were sensitive to Imipenem & Meropenem, 90% were sensitive to Piperacillin tazobactum , 85% were sensitive to CeftazidimeSulbactam,65 % were sensitive to Amikacin, 20% for Piperacillin and 40% for Co-trimoxazole.
Antimicrobial agents and medium: Standard (Oxoid) discs of Amikacin (30 [micro]g), Cefoperazone (75 [micro]g), Ceftriaxone (30 [micro]g), Ciprofloxacin (5 [micro]g), Colistin (10 [micro]g), Fosfomycin (50 [micro]g), imipenem (10 [micro]g), Polymixin B (300units), Mueller Hinton Agar (Oxoid UK) and Mueller Hinton broth (Oxoid UK) were used.
The test was performed for the following antibiotics and amounts: ampicillin, 10 [micro]g, imipenem, 10 [micro]g, gentamicin, high content, 30 [micro]g, streptomycin, high content, 300 [micro]g, vancomycin, 5 [mucro]g, linezolid, 10 [micro]g, quinupristin/dalfopristin, 15 [micro]g, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, 25 [micro]g, and tigecycline, 15 [micro]g (disks were purchased from Oxoid, UK and Becton Dickinson, USA).
Postoperative peritonitis is usually classified with a 3 score value on the Carmeli scale and imposes the need for first-line therapy, using a combination of broad-spectrum antibiotics, which usually includes a 2nd generation carbapenem (such as imipenem, meropenem) [7, 8].
