This Ciba Symposium is a fitting, up-to-date successor to the symposium on drug resistance in microorganisms published in 1957. Sir Charles Haginton, in whose honor this symposium was held, introduces the theme by comparing the status of the penicillins and of penicillin resistance 5 years ago and today. Then follow 5 papers on various aspects of the penicillins—their modes of action, resistance to the penicillins by penicillinase and drug indifference, and estimations of the risk posed by the development of resistance to the newer penicillinase-resistant penicillins. Each paper is followed by an extensive discussion, and the symposium ends with a
