Abstract

This review is intended to be a reference to describe the potential in vivo activity of various antimicrobial agents when the identity of the infecting organism is known. Because the early initiation of appropriate therapy has been noted to improve clinical outcomes in patients with serious infections, empiric therapy frequently demands the use of a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent until the specific infecting bacteria have been identified.
