Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The susceptibility of Bacteroides fragilis to the administration of clindamycin, and the efficacy of this agent in Bacteroides infections are well documented. Clindamycin-resistant strains of B. fragilis were isolated from two patients with bacteremia at two institutions. Clinically significant resistance to clindamycin therapy has not been noted previously in B. fragilis infections.
