The bactericidal activities of penicillin G and ampicillin alone were compared with those of their combinations with streptomycin or gentamicin against 17 strains of lactobacilli classified as tolerant to various beta-lactam antibiotics. The penicillin G combinations with streptomycin and gentamicin were synergistic against 17 and 16 of these strains, respectively, whereas the corresponding ampicillin-aminoglycoside combinations were synergistic against 12 and 15 strains, respectively… CONTINUE READING
