Abstract

The fact that one often needs an effective and non-toxic broad spectrum antibiotic in the treatment of neonates instigated our trials with amoxicillin. For this purpose 12 full-term and 7 pre-term neonates were given 1 dose of 50mg/kg orally during the first 2 days of life. A second group of 7 full-term neonates of the same age were given 2 doses of amoxicillin 50mg/kg orally at 12 hour intervals. In every case we determined serum levels and calculated elimination constants and serum half lives.
