Abstract

An "in vitro" study of Phosphomycin activity envolving 337 samples of Staphilococcus aureus collected from hospital infections was carried out. 310 (91,9%) of these turned out to be sensitive to the antibiotic. On analysing Phosphomycin the conclusion was that its activity proved to be superior to that of other antimicrobial agents.
