Table 4 Non-susceptibility rates of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens from bloodstream infections in Gabon

From: Retrospective analysis of antimicrobial resistance and bacterial spectrum of infection in Gabon, Central Africa

  1. Note: Abbrevations are penicillin/ampicillin (PEN/AMP), cefoxitin (COX), ampicillin plus betalactamase-inhibitor (AMP + BLI), ceftriaxone (CRO), gentamicin (GEN), ciprofloxacin (CIP), chloramphenicol (CHL), clindamycin (CLI), erythromycin (ERY), cotrimoxazole (SXT), tetracycline (TCY), not done (ND). Non-susceptible isolates are shown as the percentage of tested isolates. Data from P. aeruginosa and P. mirabilis were not reported due to small sample size (n = 2).
  2. aShown is the non-susceptibility of Gram-positives to penicillin and the non-susceptibility of Gram-negatives to ampicillin.
