Abstract

At the start of the Third Millennium, consensus has yet to be reached regarding the best techniques for meningococcal susceptibility testing and their standardization. Worse, there is no general agreement as to the definition of resistance, or perhaps more accurately, nonsusceptibility, to antibiotics of clinical importance. Even such widely known organizations such as the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) and other national and regional bodies have not seriously tackled the meningococcus to date.
