In the present era of widespread use and abuse of antimicrobial agents this book should provide a useful service. It supplies a necessary antidote for the practicing physician who is bombarded by detail men and advertising blurbs extolling the virtues and minimizing the dangers of a particular drug.
In this book the author presents a review of the literature concerned with the side-effects of many of the most commonly prescribed antibacterial agents. These drugs include penicillin, streptomycin, dihydrostreptomycin, chloramphenicol, tetracyclines, erythromycin, bacitracin and novobiocin.
