The results of the CSF [[microbiological culture|culture]] generally take longer to become available (24–48 hours). Once they do, empiric therapy may be switched to specific antibiotic therapy targeted to the specific causative organism and its sensitivities to antibiotics.<ref name=IDSA/> For an antibiotic to be effective in meningitis, it must not only be active against the pathogenic bacterium, but also reach the meninges in adequate quantities; some antibiotics have inadequate penetrance and therefore have little use in meningitis. Most of the antibiotics used in meningitis have not been tested directly on meningitis patients in [[clinical trial]]s. Rather, the relevant knowledge has mostly derived from laboratory studies in [[rabbit]]s.<ref name=IDSA/>

Tuberculous meningitis requires prolonged treatment with antibiotics.
