Summary

In a high percentage of the clinical patient’s samples being tested for antibiotic sensitivity, we are confronted with mixed infections. To prove approxemately the germ relation how it is given at the infection region we use primary cultures for the first sensibility testing. To become aquainted with the behaviour of the mixed cultures of different relation to each other, we produced artificial mixed cultures (from these isolated germs) and tested the resistance. To give the therapist guiding directions -we mean however- the sensibility testing in primary cultures with mixed infections comes nearest “in vivo” conditions. Referring to this our results will be discussed on examples from the practice.
