Abstract

SUMMARY

Carbenicillin, a 9-alpha carboxybenzyl penicillin, is bactericidal only for strains which are resistant to less than 125 g./ml. of ampicillin. All and strains in which penicillinase is a surface enzyme are resistant to carbenicillin. and strains in which production of beta-lactamase is episomally mediated are resistant to both ampicillin and carbenicillin. A non-hydrolyzable penicillin (methicillin or dicloxacillin) does not allow carbenicillin to exert its antibacterial effect against resistant strains of or . Carbenicillin shows no synergy with penicillinase-resistant penicillins.
