Contents Notes
Foreword -- 1. Principles and Methods of Antibiogram -- 2. Antibiogram of Major Bacterial Groups -- 3. Protocols for Study of Antibiotics -- Appendices. "Antibiogram is the first English edition of the original French work published in 1985. Over the last twenty years, new categories of antibiotics have entered the market and numerous forms of resistance have appeared and multiplied. The revised volume comprehensively incorporates all of the major developments that have occurred in the field since the publication of the first edition." "The book is comprised of four sections: the antibiogram principles and methods, the antibiogram of the principal bacterial groups, technical specifications for antibiotics case studies, and appendixes and definitions." "With contributions made by more than fifty authors, this new volume is intended primarily for bacteriologists and biologists working in laboratory settings, for infectious disease specialists, for researchers in the pharmaceutical industry, and also for students."--Jacket.
