Example text

Finally, it is important to note that with few exceptions, microbiological susceptibility testing does not account for distribution and is based on achievable bloodstream concentrations. For example, the microbiology lab may determine that an organism with a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 4 mcg/ml is considered susceptible to a drug that achieves a concentration of 8 mg/L in the bloodstream, but it may only achieve a concentration of 1 mg/L in cerebrospinal fluid. Thus, that drug would be likely to work for a bloodstream infection caused by the organism, but would fail for meningitis where cerebrospinal fluid concentrations are important.

Susceptibility Testing Typically, one judges the susceptibility of a particular organism to an antibiotic based on the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for the organism– antibiotic combination. The microbiology laboratory determines the MIC by mixing a standard concentration of the organism that the patient has grown with increasing concentrations of the antibiotic in a broth solution. Classically this was done in test tubes ( Figure 4–1 ), but today it is done more commonly on microdilution plates.

For example, in Table 4–1, note that the breakpoint for levofloxacin against E. coli is 2 mcg/ml and for cefepime is 8 mcg/ml. So if an isolate of E. 5 mcg/ml 1–2/19–38 mcg/ml $ 4/76 mcg/ml E. coli Streptococcus pneumoniae to cefepime, it does not mean that levofloxacin is a better choice for that patient. Levofloxacin is a concentration-dependent drug that is typically dosed in amounts of 500–750 mg daily. Cefepime is a time-dependent drug that is typically dosed as 1–2 g every 8 to 12 hours. The much higher concentrations of cefepime achieved in the body (due to higher doses) mean that organisms with a higher MIC to cefepime are still susceptible to it.
