Correction Of A Reference To Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute Interpretive Criteria.
Published 2008 · Medicine
To the EditorIn the 15 February 2008 issue of Clinical Infectious Diseases, Anthony et al.  state, in the Methods section of their article, that the "Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute interpretive criteria for Enterobacteriaceae were used for both Enterobacteriaceae and A. baumannii (susceptible MIC, ^2 /?g/mL; intermediate MIC, >2 or <8 jLtg/mL; resistant MIC, ^8 /?g/mL)" (p. 567). The authors incorrectly cited the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) as the source for the interpretive criteria. There are no established CLSI interpretive criteria  for tigecycline, because the manufacturer has not requested that the CLSI establish and publish interpretive criteria for tigecycline in their laboratory standards.
