The biliary excretion of antibiotics shows considerable variations between compounds, even when they are derivates of the same group or are chemically closely related. As a part of our exhaustive study on the biliary excretion of beta-lactamines we have designed the following comparative study of the excretion of three antibiotics which appeared to us as particularly valuable and/or representative of this group: Ampicillin, Metampicillin and Carbenicillin.
