Abstract

SUMMARY

The in-vitro sensitivity of 11 strains of to 20 antimicrobial agents was studied. They were resistant to 14 antibiotics at present in clinical use, as well as to nalidixic acid. On the other hand, they were sensitive to erythromycin, novobiocin and rifampicin. Sensitivity was also found to sulphamethoxazole and trimethoprim and to a combination of these two drugs, which acted in synergy.
