Susceptibilities of Propionibacterium acnes ophthalmic isolates to ertapenem, meropenem, and cefepime.
J Clin Microbiol. 2006 Nov; 44(11):4227-8.JC

Abstract

We investigated the in vitro susceptibilities of 23 Propionibacterium acnes ophthalmic isolates to ertapenem, meropenem, and cefepime by utilizing the Etest. The MICs ranged from 0.094 microg/ml to 0.75 microg/ml, 0.094 microg/ml to 1.5 microg/ml, and 1 microg/ml to 12 microg/ml for ertapenem, meropenem, and cefepime, respectively. Based on our excellent in vitro carbapenem susceptibility results, in vivo studies using ertapenem and meropenem in a rabbit model of P. acnes endophthalmitis are warranted.
