Participants: Women without urinary tract catheters. Measurements: Urine cultures every 6 months the same organism at 105 colony-forming units or more per mL on two midstream urine specimens defined asymptomatic bacteriuria, comorbidity, and mortality.
Norfloxacin is an antibiotic in a group of drugs called fluoroquinolones flor o KWIN o lones.
