The Phadebact gonococcus test was performed on 314 bacterial isolates to compare the coagglutination technique with the Minitek system for the confirmation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Direct testing, using colonies of N. gonorrhoeae mixed with the Phadebact gonococcus test reagents, produced noninterpretable results in many cases. However, an alternative(More)
A rapid staphylococcal coagglutination technic for differentiating group A from other streptococcal groups properly classified 500 isolates of beta-hemolytic streptococci when compared with the results of a reference capillary precipitin test. Presumptive classification of the same 500 isolates by bacitracin susceptibility produced a significant number of(More)
In this randomized, prospective study of 91 patients undergoing operations on the colon, we found that neomycin, neomycin-phthalylsulfathiazole and neomycin-erythromycin base all provided adequate intestinal antisepsis. Wound infection rates for all groups were also similar and close to the national average for operations on the colon. A detailed analysis(More)
