Abstract

SUMMARY

The sensitivity often strains of , 14 of M. abscessus, and 12 of to two cephalosporins was examined. strains were resistant to cephalothin but sensitive to cephaloridine. The strains were all highly resistant to cephalothin. All the strains and all but two strains of were resistant to cephaloridine. The use of cephaloridine resistance as a taxonomic aid is suggested. Cephaloridine may be useful in the treatment of infections with .
