Abstract:

Five strains of typhoid bacilli and five strains of dysentry flexneri bacilli were grown in continuous culture with increment doses of mycerin and streptomycin. Data are presented on antibiotic concentrations required for the lowest and highest resistance of each strain under various conditions. Antibiotic resistance developed more rapidly in continuous culture than in the control stationary cultures, and variants were observed with modified antigentics and enzymic properties. Author
