Abstract

Resistance rates to different antibiotics of 495 Bacteroides fragilis group strains were followed between 1987 and 1994 in Hungary. In 1992 the strains were collected in three different laboratories, whereas during the other periods strains were isolated in one centre. Metronidazole, chloramphenicol, imipenem and amoxicillin/clavulanic acid were the most active drugs. A high level of resistance was observed in 1987 for ampicillin (88% at > 4 mg/L), erythromycin (51% at > 4 mg/L), tetracyclin (53% at > 8 mg/L) and clindamycin (27% at > 4 mg/L). The same level of resistance was seen during the further years for clindamycin and ampicillin. Resistance to cefoxitin increased from 6% to 11% between 1987 and 1993/1994. No differences in resistance rates were observed between the strains collected in the three centers. For 100 strains, the results of the E test were compared with those of the micro-broth dilution test, both being used routinely for testing the antibiotic susceptibility of Bacteroides fragilis group strains in this period.
