Abstract:

This section is about vaccines, susceptibility testing methods, and susceptibility patterns. Two important control measures for infectious diseases are vaccination to prevent infection and use of antimicrobial therapy to eradicate infections. The section provides information for both approaches. Tables summarize immunization recommendations for pediatric and adult patients. Information regarding antimicrobial agents is subdivided into three sections: antimicrobial susceptibility testing methods, pharmacokinetic properties of antimicrobial agents, and antimicrobial susceptibility patterns. The susceptibility testing guidelines provided by the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) are summarized in tables.
