OTTH, L.; WILSON, M.; CANCINO, R. y FERNANDEZ, H.. In vitro susceptibility of Arcobacter butzleri to six antimicrobial drugs. Arch. med. vet. [online]. 2004, vol.36, n.2, pp. 207-210. ISSN 0301-732X. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0301-732X2004000200012.
The susceptibility patterns of 50 A. butzleri strains to six antimicrobial agents were determined using the E-test method. No strain was found to be resistant to gentamicin and tetracycline, but two different strains (2%) were resistant to erythromycin and ciprofloxacin. Ninety and 98% of the strains were resistant to ampicillin and chloramphenicol, respectively. Only two of the 45 ampicillin resistant strains were able to produce ß-lactamase.
