Resistance or Elevated Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) Patterns of Neisseria gonorrhoeae Isolates to Antimicrobials, Gonococcal Isolate Surveillance Project (GISP), 2019

Combination of an upset figure and pie chart to display resistance or elevated minimum inhibitory concentration patterns of Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates alone or in combination to selected antimicrobials during 2019.

* Susceptible category only includes isolates with penicillin, tetracycline, and ciprofloxacin MIC values that are considered susceptible and isolates with ceftriaxone, cefixime, and azithromycin MIC values that are not considered elevated.

NOTE: Elevated MIC = Ceftriaxone: MIC ≥ 0.125 μg/mL; Cefixime: MIC ≥ 0.25 μg/mL; Azithromycin: MIC ≥ 2.0 μg/mL. Resistance = Tetracycline: MIC ≥ 2.0 μg/mL; Ciprofloxacin: MIC ≥ 1.0 μg/mL; Penicillin: MIC ≥ 2.0 μg/mL or Beta-lactamase positive. In Panel B, a filled circle reflects resistance or elevated MIC to a specific antimicrobial; only antimicrobial combinations with non-zero percentages are shown.
