Homework Help: Science (Microbiology)

Posted by Ashley Strenke on Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 10:10pm.

The "resistant" threshold for gemifloxacin is >1 mg/L while the "resistant" threshold for sulfamethoxazole is >512 mg/L. Explain why there might be this great disparity of values in resistance thresholds (512-fold) for each antibiotic pharmacologically speaking. (hint: why can't we just use higher levels of gemifloxacin when treating infections?)
