Chapter 74 : Susceptibility Test Methods: Fastidious Bacteria*

MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.

Abstract:

This chapter summarizes key considerations for antimicrobial susceptibility testing of fastidious and infrequently isolated bacteria. Up-to-date data on the global incidence of resistance, as documented by international, national, and local surveillance studies for these organisms, are presented. Important resistance mechanisms are discussed for many organisms, including spp., , , and . This chapter also describes standard methods for testing the infrequently isolated or fastidious bacteria included in the CLSI M100 standard and M45 guideline.
