(10) The use of ciprofloxacin 500 mg orally as an alternative to a 250 mg ceftriaxone injection for the treatment of Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections has been made possible by the development of a rapid genotypic assay for the determination of mutation at codon 91 of the gyrase A (gyrA) gene of Neisseria gonorrhoeae; a non-mutated (wild-type) gyrA genotype reliably predicts full susceptibility to ciprofloxacin.
