Abstract

Summary

The carriage on skin lesions, on healthy skin and in the nose, of micro-organisms that produce antibiotics active against has been studied. About of sites (10% of all patients) yielded such organisms. No evidence could be found that the presence of producer organisms in skin lesions had a protective effect against colonisation by
