Bactericidal Effect of Cephalosporin Derivatives in Patient Material Containing Enterobacteriaceae Resistant to Ampicillin

Part of the Chemotherapy book series (CT, volume 3)


Gram positive organisms and Neisseria strains are quite evenly influenced by all cephalosporins. Their antibacterial activity is strong against penicillinase forming and penicillinase-free Staphylococci and — especially — against Pneumococci, Neisseriae and Streptococci group A. For these resistance tests with cephalosporins is no problem. For routine sensitivity testing only one of the cephalosporin antibiotics may be considered. The same is true for the testing of Streptococci group D with reduced sensitivity.
