Recently, another sulfonamide derivative, sulfadiazine, has been described by Roblin, Williams, Winnek, and English.1 In preliminary studies it was found to protect mice against hemolytic streptococcal and pneumococcal infections.2 Later,3 it was reported that it was superior to either sulfanilamide or sulfapyridine in the treatment of experimental infections of mice due to the hemolytic streptococcus. It was pointed out that the animals receiving sulfadiazine had
