Abstract

SUMMARY: Patients whose skins are colonized with resistant to penicillin and/or tetracycline may carry variants that are sensitive to these antibiotics. The skin of most individuals yields the fully resistant type as the predominant flora and the nose harbours the sensitive version. This probably represents plasmid loss The plasmid-positive cells were not more resistant to desiccation or more deeply pigmented than plasmid-negative cells. The explanation for such distributions is unknown.
