Abstract

This communication is in regards to Results section and Tables 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 of Takesue et al. (2018), which has been found to contain errors. Paragraph 5 under the Results section is corrected as follows with the corrected section marked in bold: High susceptibility rates to all antimicrobials tested except for IPM (78.1%) was demonstrated and CFPM revealed the highest susceptibility rate (95.3%) second only to aminoglycosides. Among carbapenems, the geometric mean MIC of IPM was significantly higher than those of MEPM and DRPM (p = 0.007 and p = 0.002, respectively). Among fluoroquinolones, the geometric mean MIC of moxifloxacin (MFLX) was significantly higher than those of CPFX and levofloxacin (LVFX) (p < 0.001 and p = 0.010, respectively). The isolation rates of P. aeruginosa strains resistant to at least one class of antibiotics, at least two classes of antibiotics, and at least three classes of antibiotics were 10.9%, 4.7%, and 3.1%, respectively. For Table 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8, readers are referred to the corrected table in this corrigendum. The corrected values are marked in bold. Also, for Table 7 and 8, redundant “0”s (Table 7: MEPM @ MIC 32, Table 8: MEPM @MIC 8, CPFX @ MIC 2) are removed from the table. [Table presented]
