A study was made of the antimicrobian activity of chlorpromazine, which theoretical chemistry calculations represent as a strong donor of electrons. The antagonistic action of adenosine-5 tiphosphate ATP was also shown. Its addition to a culture of staphylococci which had been arrested by chlorpromazyne makes possible the renewal of growth. The lyse of the same germ by an appropriate phage, decelerated by chlorpromazine, was accelerated by a simultaneous addition of biliverdin, a substance presenting the properties of a good acceptor of electrons.
