Resumen: The in vitro activities of gemifloxacin, ciprofloxacin, ampicillin, doxycycline, gentamicin, and vancomycin were evaluated against 15 Listeria monocytogenes strains and 205 coryneform bacteria isolated from clinical samples. The percentages of strains inhibited by gemifloxacin at 0.5 μg/ml were 100% (L. monocytogenes), 93.3% (Brevibacterium spp.), 90% (Corynebacterium minutissimum), 42.5% (Corynebacterium amycolatum), 20% (Corynebacterium striatum), 12.5% (Corynebacterium jeikeium), and 10% (Corynebacterium urealyticum). One hundred percent of the L. monocytogenes strains were inhibited by 0.25 μg of gemifloxacin per ml, whereas 0% of the strains were inhibited by 0.25 μg of ciprofloxacin per ml. Vancomycin at 2 μg/ml inhibited all strains. Doxycycline and gentamicin at 4 μg/ml inhibited 94 and 49% of the strains, respectively, while ampicillin at 0.5, 2, and 8 μg/ml inhibited 24, 61, and 66% of the strains, respectively. It is concluded that gemifloxacin shows good in vitro activity ...
