The article focuses on the regional trend of antibiotic resistance of clinically significant isolates of the Bacteroides fragilis group in South-East Austria to ten anti-anaerobic antibiotics. It also includes data on the resistance pattern of tigecycline, the first glycylcycline antibiotic. The Etest method determined the minimum inhibitory concentrations for ten antimicrobial agents.
