Table 1 Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of antibiotics used in this study

From: Decontamination of mycoplasma-contaminated Orientia tsutsugamushistrains by repeating passages through cell cultures with antibiotics

Antibiotics Drug class MICs againstOrientiaa) MICs against mycoplasmasb)
Lincomycin Lincosamide No available data 0.25–2 μg/mL
Ciprofloxacin New Quinolone 6.25–25 μg/mL 0.125–2 μg/ml
Gentamicin Aminoglycoside No available datac) 2.5–500 μg/mL
Kanamicin Aminoglycoside No available data 2.5–500 μg/mL
Minocycline Tetracycline 0.024–0.195 μg/mL 0.016–32 μg/mL
  1. MICs were obtained from previous reports. a) from [8] and b) from [57].
  2. c) Gentamycin was not effective against Orinetia tsutsugamushi in a mouse model [25].
