Influence of subinhibitory concentrations of penicillin, cephalothin, and clindamycin on Staphylococcus aureus growth in human phagocytic cells.

Abstract

After an initial 2-h incubation with phagocytic cells, the growth of surviving intracellular Staphylococcus aureus was examined in the presence of subinhibitory concentrations of penicillin, cephalothin, and clindamycin. One-tenth of the minimal inhibitory concentrations of these antibiotics markedly reduced bacterial growth in normal polymorphonuclear… (More)
