Good evening,

 

I must solve a complex problem : I have 4 strains (P.aeruginosa, E.fecalis, S.aureus, B.subtilis) and I must find (without any experiments, just with internet) for each of these 4 stains how strongly they're affected by each of these 6 antibiotics : Gentamicin, Fusidic acid, Colistin, Nalidixic acid, Oxacillin, Amikacin.  

 

Some drugs are well documented (gentamicin) but others are very hard to find. I haven't any measures of inhibition zones for solving the exercice.

 

Where can I found any informations ?

 

Thank you.

Can Gentamicin be provided for these 4 strains : P.aeruginosa, E.fecalis, S.aureus, B.subtilis ? I red that it's very effective on Pseudomonas and S.aureus but what about the other  ?

You just need to google it a bit...

I am not sure what exactly the problem is.

 

If you (like you mention) do not find the information on eg. wikipedia (meaning it is not a general resistance or susceptibility) than it is indeed not a typical trait. Of course: you can always find strains that have a resistance ...


If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
