Norfloxacin, a quinolone derivative inhibits most of the gram positive and gram negative bacteria responsible for U. T. I. 715 fresh urinary isolates of Escherichia coli (244) Klebsiella sp. (196) Pseudomonas aeruginosa (85) Proteus sp. (53), Acinetobacter sp. (3). Staphylococcus aureus (110) Staphylococcus epidermidis (9) and Streptococcus faecalis (15) were tested sensitivity to Norfloxacin and other commonly used antibiotics by disc agar diffusion. Escherichia coli, Klebsiella sp. And Pseudomonas aeruginosa were more sensitive to Norfloxacin, 82%, 78% and 79% respectively, as compared to other drugs. MIC 90 of 20 strains each of Escherichia coli., Klebsiella sp. And Pseudomonas aeruginosa were calculated by agar dilution method for Norfloxacin. Average MIC 90 for Escherichia coli. Was 0.5 mg/1, for Klebsiella sp. 2 mg/1 and for Pseudomonas aeruginosa 2 mg/1.
