Abstract

Twelve volunteers received a single oral dose of 1,000 mg extended-release (XR) ciprofloxacin versus 500 mg levofloxacin to assess urinary bactericidal titers (UBTs) against common uropathogens. Areas under UBT-time curves were significantly larger for Proteus mirabilis with XR ciprofloxacin and for staphylococci with levofloxacin.
