Sensitivity of 505 strains of gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms to II generation fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin, pefloxacin) was determined. Strains of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus with different level of sensitivity were selected. Pharmacokinetics of the drugs was investigated after their administration per os in one dose. The resulting indices were used for calculation of the following parameters--Cmax/MIC and AUC/MIC. These parameters may be used in evaluation of the drugs efficacy and for dosing corrections.
