- ... AIMS: Investigate the interactions of organic acids (OAs), acetic, butyric, citric, formic, lactic and propionic acid against 50 Gram‐positive vancomycin‐resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) strains to determine whether pH, undissociated or dissociated acid forms correlate with bacterial inhibition. METHODS AND RESULTS: Concentrations of undissociated and dissociated OAs at the molar minimum inhib ...
