[Time-killing curves of Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains exposed to polymyxin B].

Abstract

The time-killing curves of three strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA01, ATCC10145 and ATCC27853) exposed to five concentrations of polymyxin B comprised: a latency phases, one or two decreasing phases and for the low polymyxin B concentrations a growth phasis. The five antibiotic concentrations were chosen to have a weak bactericidal effect such that decreasing exponential or biexponential models can be fitted to the data. In our experimental conditions, increasing Ca++ and Mg++ concentrations in the medium (Mueller-Hinton) reduced the bactericidal effect and increased the growth phases. Increasing inoculum (10(5) to 10(7) CFU/ml) decreased the bactericidal effect observed with polymyxin B.
