[14C]-labeled josamycin (Wilprafen) readily enters several types of human phagocytic cells-polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNLs), adherent monocytes and alveolar macrophages - and is accumulated by these cells to a concentration about 20 times that in the extracellular medium. Similar studies using [14C]-benzyl penicillin revealed that the beta-lactam… CONTINUE READING
