Abstract

The sensitivity pattern of 42 strains of Pseudomonas pseudomallei isolated from soil, water, sheep, pigs, goats, birds, a horse and a tree kangaroo was similar to that of human isolates. The organisms were sensitive to kanamycin, novobiocin, compound sulfonamides, sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim and tetracycline, and resistant to ampicillin, bacitracin, cloxacillin, colistin, erythromycin, gentamicin, nitrofurantoin, penicillin, polymyxin B, streptomycin and vancomycin. Sensitivity to neomycin was variable.
