    Resistance to the quinolones almost always arises from the accumulation of mutations in chromosomal genes responsible for the drug targets, permeability, or active efflux. This resistance can be depicted as a stepwise process in which each step, represented by separate mutations, diminishes...

    The C-8 methoxy quinolone moxifloxacin is highly bactericidal against wild-type and first-step gyrase-and topoisomerase IV-resistant mutants. This finding led to the hypothesis that the C-8 methoxy group may lower the propensity for resistance development compared with quinolones possessing...
