By using checkerboard titrations the effect of cefotiam combined with different beta-lactam antibiotics on fifty strains of Enterobacteriaceae moderately susceptible (minimal inhibiting concentration greater than or equal to 8 mg/l) or resistant (minimal inhibiting concentration greater than or equal to 64 mg/l) to cefotiam was evaluated.
