By means of suspension techniques,mic's of ten silver sulfanilamides against fifty-six different strains of bacteria were determined. The only two bacteria which were sensitive wereStreptococcus pyogenes andEscherichia coli. The local application of these drugs in burn patients only reduces colonization. The cream base is probably also involved in the anticolonization effect.
