Abstract

The compounds used in this study, TET and OXM, were tested in vitro for their antibacterial activities against isolated strains from the hospital environment (S. aureus H, E. coli H and K. pneumoniae H) and reference strains (S. aureus A, E. coli A, B. subtilis A and P. aeruginosa A). The calculation of the MBC/minimum inhibitory concentration ratio of the products TET and OXM showed that the two products have a bactericidal effect on the strains tested.
