Abstract : Brucellosis is an important public health problem in Peru. We evaluated 48 human Brucella melitensis biotype 1 strains from Peru between 2000 and 2006. MICs of isolates to doxycycline, azithromycin, gentamicin, rifampin, cipruftoxacin, and triimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole were determined by the Etest method. All isulates were sensitive to tested drugs during the periuds of testing. Relapses did nut appear to be related tu drug resistance.
