Avium and E. rafﬁnosus, have different Pen G susceptibilities. 5–2 mg/ml, and for the latter 4–64 mg/ml. , 1993). Klare et al. (1992) considered that the overproduction of PBP5 is not the only intrinsic resistance mechanism for enterococci. These authors found that overproduction of PBP5 occurred in E. faecium strains which were moderately Pen G resistant, but when MICs were 128 mg/ml this was no longer so, and other so far unknown mechanisms were presumably involved. Another mechanism of Pen G resistance in the enterococci is betalactamase production.
1991). , 1979). , 1976). m. benzathine penicillin have had little, if any, increase in resistant S. viridans strains. Concerns that continuous lowdose oral penicillin prophylaxis would result in a high prevalence of endocarditis due to Pen G-resistant S. , 1982). , 1983) and from the blood (Rahman, 1982), from patients who have not received prior penicillin therapy. Venditti et al. (1989) studied 63 streptococcal isolates (most S. viridans) obtained from blood cultures of neutropenic patients; 80% were Pen G sensitive and the others showed varying degrees of resistance.
1985). , 1990). In one hospital the Pen G susceptibility of E. faecium was studied from strains isolated for 22 years starting in 1968. From 1969 to 1988 the geometric mean MIC was 14 mg/ml, whereas this was 123 mg/ml from 1989 to 1990. , 1991a). Two E. , 1992). Nosocomial outbreaks due to E. , 1993). , 1993). If the strain of E. faecium is not high-level gentamicin resistant (MIC W250–500 mg/ml), then if the Pen G MIC is lower than 200 mg/ml, Pen G and gentamicin combination is synergistic. , 1993).
