Summary

The antibacterial activity of rifampicin against clinical multiresistant microorganisms the main causative agents of purulent infections especially Staphyloccus aureus including methicillin-resistant strains was much higher than that of other antibiotics. Sensitivity of gramnegative organisms (E.coli, proteus, pseudomonas aeruginosa) to rifampicin was moderate and it may be increased by combination of rifampicin with the antibiotics inhibiting the protein synthesis or the cell membrane functions.
