Table 1 Poisson regression analysis assessing the relationship between Euro-GASP versus national antimicrobial susceptibility data to azithromycin, cefixime and ciprofloxaxin by country and overall, 2009 to 2013

From: The European gonococcal antimicrobial surveillance programme (Euro-GASP) appropriately reflects the antimicrobial resistance situation for Neisseria gonorrhoeae in the European Union/European Economic Area
