Study Start Date: December 2005
Study Completion Date: September 2006
A listing of all isolates meeting the inclusion criteria will be maintained.

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective, microbiologic in vitro evaluation which will study the susceptibility of tigecycline in disk diffusion on clinical bacterial isolates collected from inpatients and outpatients. Fourteen hospital centers participated in the program. In vitro efficacy of tigecycline will be determined through the in vitro disk diffusion activity, using FDA breakpoints.
