Effect of antimicrobial agents on the ecological balance of human microflora.
The normal microflora acts as a barrier against colonisation of potentially pathogenic microorganisms and against overgrowth of already present opportunistic microorganisms. Control of growth ofExpand

Antimicrobial agents and Clostridium difficile in acute enteric disease: epidemiological data from Sweden, 1980-1982.
The carrier rate of Clostridium difficile in an adult Swedish population was found to be 11 (1.9%) of 594. All isolates were toxigenic in vitro, but no healthy individual harbored free cytotoxin inExpand
