To the editor: In relation to the question regarding choice of antibiotics for bacteroides sepsis, which has been discussed in recent letters in your journal (Ann Intern Med 75:316-317, 1971), our data (to be presented at the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, Atlantic City, New Jersey, 17-22 October 1971) support the view of Drs. Bodner, Koenig, and Goodman that at present chloramphenicol may have a role in the treatment of bacteroides sepsis.
We have measured the minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of several antibiotics by an agar dilution technique against 75 strains of bacteroides isolated from clinical material.
