Table 2 MBC values for Ω17 and Ω76 against clinical isolates.

(Top) MBC values for Ω17 against clinical isolates. This table depicts a frequency distribution. Taking E. coli as an example, Ω17 inhibits six isolates with an MBC of 1 mg/liter, seven isolates with an MBC of 2 mg/liter, three isolates with an MBC of 4 mg/liter, and three more isolates with an MBC of 8 mg/liter. Therefore, the median MBC value (MBC50) for E. coli is 2 mg/liter. (Bottom) MBC values for Ω76 against clinical isolates. Resistance phenotypes are also mentioned. CRE, carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae; ESBL, extended-spectrum beta lactamase producers; MRSA, methicillin-resistant S. aureus; MRCN, methicillin-resistant coagulase-negative Staphylococci.
