Antimicrobial susceptibility testing of porcine Brachyspira (Serpulina) species isolates



Antimicrobial susceptibility testing of porcine Brachyspira (Serpulina) species isolates



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 41(6): 2596-2604



No standardized method for susceptibility testing of Brachyspira spp. is currently available. A broth dilution procedure was evaluated and used to test the activities of six antimicrobial agents for 108 isolates of Swedish porcine Brachyspira spp. representing biochemical groups I, II, and III. Group I corresponds to Brachyspira hyodysenteriae, group II corresponds to B. intermedia, and group III corresponds to B. murdochii and B. innocens.
