Laboratorio Microbiologia e Virologia, Ospedale S Michele, Cagliari, Italy.


The efficacy of teicoplanin and imipenem was assayed on microorganisms, mainly hospital opportunistic organisms, resistant to common therapy, isolated from bronchoaspirates of high risk hospitalized patients. Imipenem has shown remarkable activity against all isolated microorganisms with sensitivities ranging from 91.93% against Acinetobacter calcoaceticus to 75.86% against Pseudomonas sp. Teicoplanin has shown excellent activity against Staphylococcus aureus (sensitivity 83.66%).
