    Abstract

    Minimal inhibitory concentrations of PCs (ABPC, SBPC, PIPC), CEPs (CEZ, CMZ) and AGs (GM, DKB, AMK) against 269 strains of gram-negative bacilli except H. influenzae and S. aureus isolated from sputum of patients hospitalizing in our Institute were studied. The MICs against fresh strains within 24 hr of isolation and the MICs against strains preserved on semi-liquid-nutrient agar for 2 to 3 months were compared. Frequency distribution of fresh strains was 30.9% (83 strains) for K. pneumoniae, 24.9% (67 strains) for Enterobacter, 10.4% (28 strains) for P. aeruginosa, 6.7% (18 strains) for E.coli, 6.7% (17 strains) for K. oxytoca, 5.6% (15 strains) for S. marcescens, 5.6% (15 strains) for S. aureus and 9. 7% (26 strains) for others.
