|Why can't I get data on Acinetobacter and Citrobacter after 2007?2010-03-09|
Why can't I get data on Acinetobacter and Citrobacter after 2007?Up to 2007, we collected a miscellaneous ?other Gram-negative bacteria? group, which yielded Serratia, Citrobacter and Acinetobacter amongst many other even less common organisms. Mostly, they were too few for meaningful analysis. From 2008, the protocol was changed to collect only Serratia in this group.
|Why can't I get data on S. epidermidis and S. haemolyticus after 2005?2010-03-09|
Why can't I get data on S. epidermidis and S. haemolyticus after 2005?These species are still included in the coagulase-negative staphylococci organism group. From 2006 onwards, coagulase-negative staphylococci were not identified to species level, so data on individual species are not available.
|Why were tigecycline MICs higher in 2002 than later years?2010-03-08|
Why were tigecycline MICs higher in 2002 than later years?We think this is an experimental artefact. Tigecycline is somewhat oxygen-labile, but this was not fully understood in 2002 when it was quite a new developmental agent. Its laboratory handling requirements were better understood from 2003 onwards, and the MICs obtained since then are more reliable.
