Abstract

The in vitro activity of premafloxacin against 673 veterinary pathogens was evaluated. Premafloxacin was equivalent to ciprofloxacin, enrofloxacin, and danofloxacin in activity against the gram-negative bacilli but was much more active (MIC for 90% of the strains tested [MIC90], 0.015 to 0.25 microg/ml) than the comparison antimicrobial agents (MIC90, 0.13 to 16.0 microg/ml) against the staphylococci, streptococci, and anaerobes tested.
