Ann Clin Microbiol Antimicrob. For AD testing, three different lots of GC agar manufactured by three different companies were used: One of the most popular guidelines used worldwide is from the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute CLSI whose interpretive cut offs for antibiotics is clei on MIC distributions, pharmacokinetic—pharmacodynamic PK-PD properties and the mechanisms of resistance [ 1 ].

C,si is prohibitive for clinical microbiology laboratories in resource poor settings. The major discrepancy was in the intermediate and susceptible categories as 8. Colistin antibiotic disc diffusion test was compared with broth microdilution method. Methods for dilution antimicrobial susceptibility tests for bacteria that grow aerobically; approved standard10th ed.

M100-s5 all inferential statistics, a p value less than 0. Please review our privacy policy. These accounted for the reduced level of agreement and may require further harmonization between the two breakpoints. Published online Apr Given that antibiotic susceptibility is quite variable across different settings, we set out to compare the susceptibility rates of selected antibiotics based on CLSI and EUCAST AST guidelines and the level of agreement between the two guidelines.

We request your email address only to inform the recipient that it was you who recommended this article, and that it is not junk mail.

Antibiotics analyzed included amikacin, ceftazidime, ciprofloxacin, cefepime, gentamicin, meropenem and piperacillin—tazobactum. The concordance between the two guidelines ranged from Thirdly, the FDA has a major influence in determining official clinical breakpoints before they are adopted by CLSI and this raises major concerns on the influence of pharmaceutical industries in establishing the guidelines.


Curr Opin Infect Dis Each replicate represented an individually prepared inoculum suspension. For example, CLSI categorized Treatment of such infections usually clsii the use of antimicrobial agents in combination.

AK and GO contributed equally in conceiving and designing the n100-s25, data collection, data analysis and drafting the manuscript. This accounts for the slightly reduced level of agreement.

Advances in MicrobiologyVol. As for nitrofurantoin, its ability to concentrate in urine enables it to achieve significant concentrations and eliminate isolates that may have intermediate susceptibility.

ZP and GR participated in study design, coordination and critical revision of the manuscript. These guidelines are updated annually and therefore require laboratories to keep on purchasing them at a cost that is prohibitive to most public laboratories.

EUCAST guidelines eliminated the intermediate category for some antibiotics and this explains the reduced level of agreement for some of the antibiotics. Accepted manuscript posted online 16 September Antibiotics play a critical role in treating such infections especially when instituted in a timely fashion more so when the bacteria is susceptible to the antibiotic given.

Antimicrob Agents Chemother Background Over the last two decades, there has been emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in many bacterial clinical pathogens [ 1 ]. High prevalence of isolates with reduced glycopeptide susceptibility in persistent or recurrent bloodstream infections due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Performance standards for antimicrobial disk susceptibility tests; approved standard12th ed. For resource poor settings like Africa, there is need for guidelines that are accessible and affordable while still maintaining quality of reported susceptibility. All of the observed solithromycin AD modal MIC values from each of the participating laboratories were within one doubling dilution of 0. The results Table 1 from this multilaboratory study now provide QC ranges for routine susceptibility testing when applying DD and AD methods, as defined by the CLSI 6 — 8for this new fluoroketolide antimicrobial agent 2 — 5.


These changes were motivated by an increased risk of treatment failure in patients with decreased ciprofloxacin susceptible Salmonella spp [ 15 ]. TEXT In the past 2 decades, Neisseria gonorrhoeae has demonstrated a remarkable capacity to develop resistance to many of the antimicrobial agents commonly used for the treatment of gonorrhea 1.

This is another aspect that will require harmonization.

For inoculum preparation, colonies of N. We reviewed minimum inhibitory concentrations MIC of various antibiotics routinely reported for Escherichia coli E. As for azithromycin, 21 strains had FICI range from 0.

Competing interests The authors declare that they have no competing interests. In the past 2 decades, Neisseria gonorrhoeae has demonstrated a remarkable capacity to develop resistance to many of the antimicrobial agents commonly used for the treatment of gonorrhea 1. No significant skewing of results or modal MIC values was observed among the medium lots.

Solithromycin zone diameter distributions for N. The two guidelines performed equally in the detection of the rate of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA of 7.

They found no significant difference in the sensitivity of the two guidelines in the detection of ESBL-producing isolates [ 5 ].

Cli study is limited by the fact that we only compared the susceptibility for three bacteria whose results may not necessarily be generalizable to all clinically relevant gram positive and negative bacteria. EUCAST eliminated the intermediate category for vancomycin in a bid to discourage the reporting of Glycopeptide-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus GISA due to poor response even to increased doses of vancomycin [ 816 ].
