Author information

Division of Infectious Diseases, Ohio State University College of Medicine, Columbus.


Resistance to traditional antibiotics is an increasing problem. The introduction of ciprofloxacin (Cipro) has been welcome, because it is safe and effective against many organisms (including drug-resistant ones), can be taken orally, and is well tolerated. Dr Fass provides a complete description of the drug, including its use for infections of the urinary, respiratory, and gastrointestinal tracts; skin and skin structures; and bones and joints.
