Abstract

Summary

The action of the antiseptic chlorhexidine has been tested against 205 strains of the genus . No strain was found to survive, under the conditions of the test, a concentration of 1 in 5000. The four species of the genus, however, varied in sensitivity. In general, was the most resistant; and were the most sensitive; tended to be less resistant than and more so than and .

The same strains were also tested against a number of chemotherapeutic drugs. Evidence that resistance to chlorhexidine among strains was associated with multiple drug-resistance could not be established.
