Abstract

1. The concentrations of penicillin G which (a) reduced the net rate of multiplication, (b) exerted a net bactericidal effect, and (c) killed the organisms at a maximal rate, have been defined for a total of 41 strains of alpha- and beta-hemolytic streptococci, Staphylococcus aureus and...read more
