Overall, there was an excellent susceptibility
pattern established against the commonly used antifungal agents.
Statistical analysis The susceptibility
differences were analyzed using chi square (x2) test after performing interpretation of MICs.
The frequency dependence susceptibility
([X.sub.fd]) is expressed either as a relative loss of susceptibility
where [[DELTA].sub.x] is the difference in susceptibility
between the inside and the outside of the cylinder, a is the radius of the cylinder, [theta] is the angle between the direction of the [B.sub.0] field and the cylinder axis, and [rho] and [phi] are the cylindrical coordinates describing a point at distance p and at an angle [phi] relative to a point at the centre of the cylinder.
We performed linear regression analyses in which the dependent variable was antimicrobial susceptibility
(geometric mean MIC) at each GISP site and the independent variable of interest was the prior year prescription rate (i.e., the prescribing rate during the year before the year corresponding to the antimicrobial drug susceptibility
results) at each county and year.
The best parameter of every method for noisy numerical simulation and phantom was chosen according to the least error with respect to the true susceptibility
[17, 31] and to the prepared susceptibility
in each balloon.
Meanwhile, overall susceptibility
to clindamycin dropped from 91% in 2005 to 86% in 2014, and MSSA susceptibility
to clindamycin dropped from 91% in 2005 to 84% in 2014.
Keeping clinicians and microbiologists aspired of any change in the susceptibility
pattern of this lethal pathogen is the need of hour.
In some cases, direct susceptibility
was not performed.
testing was done with the disc diffusion method (modified Kirby-Bauer method) using Mueller-Hinton agar and VITEK 2 antimicrobial susceptibility
testing (AST) cards.
Essentially, the investigators took a comprehensive approach in characterizing the susceptibility
of encapsulated materials in colloidal particles to oxidation processes.
[sup], It is effective against Gram-negative bacilli, including drug-resistance bacterial isolates, with similar susceptibility
