Susceptibilities of Mycobacterium marinum to Gatifloxacin, Gemifloxacin, Levofloxacin, Linezolid, Moxifloxacin, Telithromycin, and Quinupristin-Dalfopristin (Synercid) Compared to Its Susceptibilities to Reference Macrolides and Quinolones.

Abstract

The susceptibility pattern of Mycobacterium marinum was determined. Quinupristin-dalfopristin and telithromycin were less active than clarithromycin. Linezolid showed good antimicrobial activity at clinically achievable concentrations. Gatifloxacin, levofloxacin, and moxifloxacin displayed activities similar to those of ciprofloxacin. Gemifloxacin was less active. The Etest method showed variable agreement with the reference method.
