Abstract

Meropenem (MEM) is a carbapenem antibiotic effective against infections caused by a variety of organisms. This study was conducted to evaluate MEM, which has not been previously used in the hospital, in parallel with some antimicrobial agents now in use, against organisms causing serious infections in the hospital. A total of 382 organisms isolated from blood cultures were included in the study. In the case of Bacteroides spp. and Burkholderia pseudomallei, organisms recovered from blood as well as from other sites were also included. In addition to MEM, 12 antimicrobial agents were tested against Gram-negative bacilli and seven against staphylococci. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was carried out by the Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion technique based on theM2-A4 standard. The present paper demonstrates that meropenem, imipenem and ciprofloxacin are the most active antimicrobial agents against clinically important organisms causing serious infections in the hospital.
