Melioidosis: antibiogram of cases in Singapore 1987-2007.
Trans R Soc Trop Med Hyg. 2008 Dec; 102 Suppl 1:S101-2.TR

Abstract

The antimicrobial susceptibility of Burkholderia pseudomallei isolates identified by the bacteriology laboratory at Singapore General Hospital was reviewed. Laboratory data were found to be available since 1987 and showed that ceftazidime, amoxicillin-clavulanate, chloramphenicol and tetracycline had remained effective through the years. Imipenem was added to the list of antimicrobials tested after 1989, and the isolates showed high susceptibility rates. Co-trimoxazole was found to be useful based on Etest results, but the isolates had low susceptibility rates when tested using disk diffusion.
