2002). However, although they have not reached the high resistance levels that other antibiotic classes present (such as β-lactams and macrolides), resistance to quinolones is increasing progressively. 7% in 1997. This coincides with the increased use of ciprofloxacin in adults. , 1999); however, a tendency towards an increase in resistance is being observed now. , 2005) to assess trends of antimicrobial resistance in S. 3% of isolates had ciprofloxacin MICs of ≥4 mg/l. Trend analysis since 1994–1995 indicated that rates of resistance to β-lactams, macrolides, tetracyclines, trimethoprim– sulfamethoxazole (TMP–SMZ) and multiple drugs have either plateaued or have begun to decrease.
