Ambrose DEFINITION AND CLINICAL UTILITY OF ANTIMICROBIAL BREAKPOINTS A breakpoint, in its simplest terms, represents the concentration of an antimicrobial agent that separates populations of microorganisms. Breakpoints are used in many ways, and so there may be more than one breakpoint for a specific antimicrobial agent–microorganism combination. It is also of interest that a breakpoint may change from time to time for a variety of reasons, as discussed later. In addition, breakpoints can vary from one country to another and from one official body to another in the same country.

In this study, it was alarming to discover that the frequency of high-level resistance detected in this study was to antibiotics that have served as the standard therapeutic regimens for decades. No class of antibiotic natural or synthetic was spared with respect to bacterial target. A summary of the 18 antibiotics and the extent of inactivation of the 480 strains that formed the library is noted in Figure 1. In general, without exception, investigators found that every strain in the library was resistant on average to 7 or 8 antimicrobials; two strains were resistant to 15 of the 21 drugs.
