Abstract

SUMMARY: Spermine was found to inhibit the growth of various micro-organisms. The most susceptible were and and , and to a lesser degree . The Enterobacteriaceae were relatively resistant. The action of spermine was enhanced by an increase in pH of the medium. The antibacterial effect was bactericidal; it was slowed but not prevented by a decrease in temperature from 37 to 6°. The nutrients of various media influenced the action of spermine.
