Abstract

Chequerboard and time–kill methods were used to compare thein vitro efficacies of thecombinations gatifloxacin (GAT) with cefoperazone (CFP) and GAT with cefoperazone– sulbactam (CFP-SUL) against 58 clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The combinationsGAT+CFP and GAT+CFP-SUL were shown to be synergistic for 36.2 and 58.6% of isolatestested, respectively, using the chequerboard method. Time–kill studies with 11 strains showedsynergy in 54.5% for the GAT+CFP combination and 72.7% for the GAT+CFP-SULcombination. The agreement between these two methods wasfound to be 72–81 %. There was asignificant difference in synergy between the two combinations tested (P-0.011).
