Anaerobiosis and Staphylococcal Resistance to Certain 4-Quinolones

Many of the fluorinated 4-quinolones are very potent antibacterial agents acting on the same target, DNA Gyrase, as nalidixic acidl. Unlike nalidixic acid and the older compounds, their level of activity is such as to include a broad range of both Gram negative and Gram positive bacteria.
