A Novel Approach to Study the Effect of Ciprofloxacin on Biofilms of Corynebacterium spp. Using Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy

. The effect of ciprofloxacin on the biofilm produced by the antibiotic-susceptible C. striatum strain was evaluated using three concentrations of the antimicrobial agent (2 ×, 4 ×, and 6 × the MIC – the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration). The basis for the interpretation of results was the statistical analysis of maximum points readings from the surface comprising a total of 245 areas of the biofilm image under the confocal microscope. It was observed that ciprofloxacin at a concentration equal to 4

Antibiotic Resistance Among Uropathogenic Escherichia coli

prevalence of resistant E. coli (< 20%) (Bartoletti et al. 2016; Bonkat et al. 2017). Fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin) play an important role in the treatment of more severe infections and septicemia, and thus, ciprofloxacin should be considered as an alternative, not as a first-line antibiotic, in the treatment of uncomplicated cystitis (Bartoletti et al. 2016). Ciprofloxacin could be used as second-line empiric therapy in cases of mild and moderate pyelonephritis or complicated UTI

In Vitro and In Vivo Activity of Zabofloxacin and Other Fluoroquinolones Against MRSA Isolates from A University Hospital in Egypt

, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Enterococcus faecalis. Its activity against these organisms is regarded to be superior to other fluoroquinolones as ciprofloxacin, moxifloxacin, and gemifloxacin (Park et al. 2006; Karpiuk and Tyski 2013). Zabofloxacin is slightly inferior in comparison with other fluoroquinolones against Enterobacteriaceae family. However, it is effective against the Gram-negative respiratory bacteria, such as Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis (Karpiuk and
