We evaluated the activity of ulifloxacin in comparison with ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin and moxifloxacin against clinical isolates from a large teaching hospital in Italy. The isolates derived from patients admitted to surgical and medical wards and intensive care units. Multi-drug resistant S. aureus, P. aeruginosa, enterococci and Enterobacteriaceae spp. strains were included in the study. Ulifloxacin was slightly more active than ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin against gram negative isolates. Against gram positive strains ulifloxacin was as active as moxifloxacin.

Abstract

We evaluated the activity of ulifloxacin in comparison with ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin and moxifloxacin against clinical isolates from a large teaching hospital in Italy. The isolates derived from patients admitted to surgical and medical wards and intensive care units. Multi-drug resistant S. aureus, P. aeruginosa, enterococci and Enterobacteriaceae spp. strains were included in the study. Ulifloxacin was slightly more active than ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin against gram negative isolates. Against gram positive strains ulifloxacin was as active as moxifloxacin.
