Summary

From the Antarctic soil, a total of 193 strains of clostridia were isolated and identified. Of them were assigned to 11 species; i.e., C.perfringens, C.bifermentans and C.sordellii were isolated frequently.

The Antarctic strains were almost the same susceptibility with the control(Japan) strains to Penicillin-G, Cephaloridine, Clindamycin and Lincomycin.

To Tetracyclines, the Antarctic strains were all sensitive(0.19 μg/ml or less), but the control strains had about 30% resistant strains(50–3.13μg/m1).
