Comparative susceptibility of Mycoplasma pneumoniae to erythromycin, ciprofloxacin, and lomefloxacin

Academic Article


  • Lomefloxacin was found to be comparable to ciprofloxacin in its ability to inhibit the in vitro growth of Mycoplasma pneumoniae (MIC range 2-8 mcg/ml), but it was significantly less active than erythromycin. Although 30 different strains from widely differing geographic areas and isolation time periods were examined, no macrolide-resistant strains were observed. © 1989.
