    • “Antibiotic therapy was changed to meropenem at a dose of 20 mg/kg every 8 h for a total of 7 days following the negative blood culture.” [2010]
    • “All B. cepacia isolates were resistant to at least 1 antibiotic tested, most frequently ticarcillin-clavulanate. All Herbaspirillum species isolates were susceptible to ceftazidime, levofloxacin, minocycline, moxifloxacin, ticarcillin/clavulanate, tigecycline, and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole. ”  [2014]
