Abstract

A comparative study of in vitro activity of amikacin, gentamicin, netilmicin, tobramycin and isepamicin was done. A total of 200 clinical isolates of Gram negative organisms from various clinical sources were tested. E.Coli was the most frequently isolated organism followed by Pseudomonas check for this species in other resources spp., Klebsiella check for this species in other resources spp., Proteus check for this species in other resources spp., Acinetobacter check for this species in other resources spp. and Enterobacter check for this species in other resources spp. Of the 5 aminoglycosides tested, isepamicin showed the highest numbers of susceptible isolates followed by amikacin, netilmicin, gentamicin and tobramycin. MIC 90 value of isepamicin was lower as compared to amikacin.
